(( As grandparents, they never thought they would find themselves on the steps of the U-S Supreme Court.
All Gary and Jennifer Troxel wanted, was to see their two grandchildren, Natalie and Isabelle. GARYTROXEL, GRANDFATHER Because theyre part of the family. Theyve always been part of the family.
But the mother of the two girls was trying to start a NEW family. She had married another man -- and said the visits by the girls biological grandparents had gotten uncomfortably frequent.

The Troxel wanted more, and sued under a Washington State law that allowed grandparents to visit their grandchildren, even if the parents object.

But the court ruled in the parents favor instead saying it was up to them to decide who can visit their children, even if they decide bar blood relatives. TOMMIE WYNN, MOTHER We know our children, we know our family better than any court, and we need to have the privacy and the right to conduct our family as we see fit.
Now the issue of grandparents right is to be decided by these nine justices six of them grandparents themselves. Lee Cowan/CBS News: Millions of Americans have something at stake. If the justices rule broadly, the court could throw out the whole concept of Grandparents rights -- and the laws that protect that right in all 50 states. Or their ruling could define just what makes up an American family in the 21st century.
After all, it is not what is used to be. Higher rates of divorce, remarriage, and stepfamilies have blurred the picture of the traditional family.
Both sides agree is all comes down to whats best for the child. The bigger question is who is qualified to make that decision.
JENNIFER TROXEL/ GRANDMOTHER: Whos looking out for the children? You know, if grandchildren want to see their grandparents, and their mother or father is preventing that, then whos looking out for the children?
The Justices hinted THAT should be the right of parents. What they still must decide if its an exclusive right, or one shared with others -- blood relatives or not. Lee Cowan, CSB News, at the Supreme Court.))

The Virginia Association of School nurses recommends one nurse per 15- hundred students... but Bassett says in Southwest Virginia the student to nurse ratio is often much higher.
For example-- three years ago Montgomery County employed just one full time nurse for nine thousand students.
But that situation is improving.
Today-- the county employs one full time and six part time registered nurses.
Faye Harper is one of those seven nurses.
