As I am building a website for the youth in my district with a whole other team of people, I need some scripts.

I need a news ticker script like this (http://www.appletcollection.com/advnewsscroll.html) but free.

I need a front page photo viewer like this one on the front page (http://www.tronios.com/en/)

I use Google Gadgets (http://www.google.com/ig/directory?synd=open) news feed/scripts for my sites - can customize them. Also online flash scripts for slide shows, at xat com. (http://www.xat.com/web_gear/slide_show.php), and host the images for free on Google's Picassa online, to link to the slide show. Widgetbox (http://www.widgetbox.com/) is another one for scripts, but have not used for a while.

I want scripts rather than real news stories as I will be feeding specific news to the script. I would also like numbers at the bottom of the viewer

Why not use a CMS and some plugins?

You mean a message board? - to add your own content/broadcasts? or do you mean to manually add specifc news items? - which requires a rss feed url usually. I think shout boxes might be able to do your own messages. Plenty online (i.e. shout box scripts), and some can include reply chats from web visitors, i.e. like a mini chat box if you want.

What software are you using to create the web site?

I'm using Microsoft Expression Web as it fits my needs.
For the news box it would not necessarily contain news, but rather messages.
I also need a scroller-type thing like the cool auctions box on trademe
