The toll at the Pentagon: 190. In Pennsylvania: 45. The apparent total so far stands at 4,998 lives lost in the terrorist atrocity that stunned the nation Tuesday, steered it toward war Thursday and plunges it into an official day of mourning today. The death toll exceeds that from Pearl Harbor and the sinking of the Titanic combined. And new fears erupted Thursday in Washington and New York. Guards hustled Vice President Dick Cheney to Camp David "as a precautionary measure," a spokeswoman said. A bomb scare generated by a suspicious package emptied the U.S. Senate. As air travel slowly resumed, New York's three major airports opened briefly and then closed again so FBI agents could search for suspects. One man claiming to be a pilot and carrying false identification was arrested, Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said. A grim President Bush declared Friday a national day of prayer and remembrance. He asked Americans to spend lunch hour at a place of worship and to ring church bells at noon. Many Americans planned to wear red, white and blue clothing today, and to light candles at 7 p.m. "We will persevere through this national tragedy and personal loss," Bush said. "In time, we will find healing and recovery, and, in the face of all this evil, we remain strong and united, one nation under God." A somber mood of trepidation spread around the world, but here and there, America's friends found ways to offer eloquent gestures of sympathy and solidarity.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution Thursday urging citizens to fly the American flag for 30 days outside their homes and businesses as a response to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

She lost two family members her husband's brother and sister, who worked in the World Trade Center. "(My sister's husband) called me and left me a message to call him," she said on Thursday after a panel discussion on the attacks at Millikin University.

Doctors had amputated his legs, and he was unconscious. When he regained consciousness, he went into cardiac arrest and died. Her sister-in-law is missing. "We're just waiting," said Banks, 20. "I have to hear from my husband and family in Jamaica. I'm the contact person." Banks grew up in Jamaica and lived in New York for four years. She's a triple major in political science, economics and Spanish with a minor in com munications. She said at times like this, it helps to talk about what's going on. "Discussion is good," she said. "We need more of it." America needs to really look at its international policies, she said, and ask itself why so many other countries have grievances against the United MILLIKINA9 Prolonged military campaign expected Knight Ridder Newspapers WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is planning a sustained military campaign not mere retaliation against the terrorists behind the attacks on New York and Washington and governments that aid them, the No. 2 man at the Pentagon said Thursday. "It's going to unfold over time," Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said. He added that President Bush has "a whole range of options in front of him" as he decides how to wage what he has pledged will be a "war on terrorism" aimed at "eradicating" those who practice it. Experts said the military options broadly include: Launching strikes with cruise missiles or long- MILITARYA9 Businesses plan rally for Sept. 23 DECATUR Local business leaders are planning a rally to honor the families of the terrorist attack victims and rescue workers. "This is an opportunity to come together in a visible show of support for our great country," said Chris Olsen, chairman of the board of The Chamber of Commerce for Decatur and Macon County, one of the event's sponsors. The Decatur Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and Illinois Power Co. also are sponsoring the rally. The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23, at Millikin University's Frank M.
