On the Radar: Mine search, Sarah Palin, Yemen child death

A handmade sign in support of missing miners hangs on a fence in Dorothy, West Virginia.

West Virginia mine disaster - Rescue crews searching for four missing miners were evacuated Friday from a West Virginia coal mine after encountering smoke, a signal of an active fire somewhere in the mine. Before retreating, the rescuers found one of two airtight safety chambers where  miners might have taken shelter but it had not been deployed. CNN is looking at safety issues and what is being done to keep miners out of harm's way as well as the resiliency of coal mining towns and how they respond to these tragedies.

Palin and the mainstream GOP - While revered by the Tea Party and hard-core conservatives, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin isn’t held in such high esteem by the GOP mainstream - 43 percent of all Republicans have a favorable view of her, according to a CBS News poll this week. As she prepares to address 4,000 Republicans of all stripes at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, we look at where she stands and the decision she’ll have to make soon: pursue the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 or embrace a potentially lucrative media career. CNN's Paul Steinhauser reports.

On the Radar: Violence against Congress, McCain-Palin, Iraq

A giant cross overshadows St. Peters Square at the Vatican on March 25.

Here’s a look at some of the stories CNN.com reporters are working on Friday:

Church Abuse - We follow the global story of Catholic church abuse with the reactions around the world from several archbishops and stories looking at how much the Vatican knew about the alleged abuse and when. Friday the Catholic Archdiocese in Munich, Germany, denied a report that the Pope knew a priest convicted of abusing minors was back at work. On the same day, French bishops wrote a letter saying they felt "shame and regret for the abominable acts" by some priests in the Catholic church. The Catholic Archbishop of Westminster called the child abuse committed within the church "totally unacceptable" and said he was ashamed of what happened.

McCain and Palin on the trail again - Sen. John McCain is running for re-election and for the first time in nearly 20 years is facing a tough challenge from J.D. Hayworth. When he hits the campaign trail this weekend, there will be a familiar face alongside him - Sarah Palin.  The pair will be at an event in Tucson, Arizona, at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.
