Big events could mean parking troubles in Roanoke today.
But there's a plan in place to help music and football fans avoid trouble.
The Dixie Chicks take the stage at the Civic Center tonight - there's just 18-hundred parking spaces for a crowd 5 times that size.
Kate Weidaw has some tips.

Traffic and lots of it. Besides the Dixie Chicks concert add the Taste of the Blue Ridge Blues and Jazz Festival in Elmwood Park, and the WVEC Football Game at Victory Stadium. But there should be some relief in sight as far as parking thanks to the Valley Metro Shuttle.

Out of the 47 million Firestone tires under investigation -- not all of them carry the Firestone name.
Government investigators revealed they are looking at dozens of other models MADE by Firestone, but SOLD under DIFFERENT brands.
Some consumers are trying to make a profit from the recall.
A Seattle CBS affiliate found out recalled tires are making it back on the road.
Several used tire dealers are re-selling recalled Firestones.
The dealers say some customers knew exactly what they were doing.

You can find candlestick holders and bird-baths just about anywhere. But at one gift shop can you watch such masterpieces be created by hand. In this week's "Time Off" Shannon Young takes us to Waynesboro for a peek inside the Virginia Metalcrafters Showcase.

((Any product we look at here, there's a story about it. This was the first product we ever did for colonial Williamsburg - the spiked candlestick.))
[RUNS= 11]
[OUT Q=spiked candlestick.]

If you're looking for antique reproductions you can't beat the Virginia Metalcrafters Showcase for the history behind each of its products.
[SOT 4:38:02-4:17:14]
[IN Q=This piece was...]

((This piece was selected by Senator Warner as the inaugural gift for the last Clinton inauguration. He called us in December, I believe, and said 'I need 300 pieces for the inauguration luncheon,' and we pointed out that we'd never made it before and he said, 'I really don't care. I need 300 pieces.' And he got 300 pieces.))
[RUNS= 21]

Charles Salembier can tell a tale about each of the foundry's pieces. From Christmas ornaments to garden decorations, picture frames to book ends, each item is made of brass, bronze, iron or aluminum, not to mention a whole lot of love.

((It is a product that is made by hand by people who've been working here... we've had as many as five generations at a time working here. This is a product that is the product of a whole lot of people who've worked very hard to learn the skills that they have.))
[RUNS= 19]
[OUT Q=that they have.]

You can peruse the gift shop for nearly flawless factory seconds.
Or, from a safe distance, you can gaze out over the production room to watch the casting in action. Metal heated to about 2-thousand degrees is poured into molds about every 20-minutes. A brief audio recording explains the process.

Even if you don't wind up taking any of the metal work home, you will leave with an appreciation of the work that goes into each piece.

[IN Q=I've had many...]

((I've had many people say that one of the pleasures they get when they see people buy the product, or know the product's in someone's home, is that they just get pleasure out of producing something beautiful that other people can enjoy.))
