Some leaders in one northern Virginia county want to get rid of the tobacco plant from the county seal.
The chairman of Prince William County's Board of Supervisors says the county should have a more positive image on its official seal.
But supporters say the symbol has been part of the county for 65 years and represents the county's history.
The board will make a decision on the issue sometime this summer.

ONE THING KIDS DONT THINK OF IS SKIN CANCER WHEN THEY GO OUTSIDE- SO ITS UP TO US TO MAKE SURE THEY GET SOME PROTECTION FROM THE SUN- AND THAT MEANS SUNSCREENS. SO TODAY LETS ANSWER SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT USING THEM.
STARTING WITH- WHAT KIND TO USE.
GRFX YOUR BEST BET IS TO USE A SUNSCREEN WITH A SUN PROTECTION FACTOR OR SPF OF AT LEAST A NUMBER 15- 30'S EVEN BETTER.
AND BE SURE TO CHOOSE A PRODUCT WHICH OFFERS BOTH UVA AND UVB PROTECTION. NEXT- HOW MUCH TO USE-
IT TAKES AT LEAST A PALMFUL TO COVER A KIDS BODY- BIG KID BIG PALMFUL-
LITTLE KID- LITTLE PALMFUL. AND DONT BE CHEAP=- BECAUSE IF YOU USE LESS

THAT NUMBER 15 PROTECTION DROPS TO A 6 OR 8.
AND FINALLY- WHEN SHOULD YOU APPLY SUNCREEN? BELIEVE IT OR NOT A SUNSCREEN WORKS BEST WHEN YOU PUT IT ON AT LEAST A HALF IT TAKES THAT LONG TO PENETRATE THE SKIN AND PROVIDE THE MAXIMUM PROTECTION.
AND IF YOURE GOING TO BE OUT A WHILE- REAPPLY SUNSCREEN EVERY TWO HOURS-- YOU DONT WANT THOSE FUN AND SUN DAYS TO COME BACK AND HAUNT THEM WHEN THEY GET BIG.

((Festival in the Park runs an annual budget of close to half a million dollars. But it provides just a few hundred in scholarships each year.
That story brought this response from a viewer in Martinsville [Phil Sparks]
"If the organization had a quarter of a million dollars in the fund and gave out that few dollars in scholarships they need some fiscal responsibility injected into their scheme. It doesn't take an MBA to go in and run the festival and do the things that return the most to the most. All that is needed is a calculator, some solid records of expenditures and a record of individual event proceeds."
It's been two weeks since Governor Gilmore met with leaders of the NAACP to discuss the group's objections to a Confederate history month proclamation. But letters keep coming in, like this one from a viewer in Blacksburg [Shawn McCleod].
"I'm not racist, but my roommate at school is black and we both agree that this as become a problem that should be stopped. No big deal is ever made of the "Malcom X" movie and I do not seem to recall a national white history month. So why is there such a big deal? The blacks seem to be receiving everything that they want and the one thing that the white Americans want is soon to become nothing. This is our past as Martin Luther King Jr. is also our past, but we cannot forget him so why should we forget the Confederate flag?"
Last week's raid on the home of a law-abiding couple in Pulaski outraged a viewer in Keysville [J. Rothwell.]
The way it sounds is the police did NO investigation after receiving the information from their so-called informant. Do they just take the word of these people? Is there no requirement to check out the information given? Although I do not believe in suing for just any reason, I believe I would in this case...Storming into someone's home without proper information...is WRONG!"
