A proposal to turn 26 miles of abandoned railroad tracks into a trail for biking, hiking, and horseback riding is causing plenty of controversy. Last night during a public hearing about 40 residents voiced their concerns about the plan. Kate Weidaw has the details.

Education is a top issue in the U-S Senate race in Virginia.
And an aide to Senator Chuck Robb says Republican George Allen's getting an unfair boost - with state money.
Governor Gilmore is spending over a million dollars on T-V ads promoting the Standards of Learning program in schools.
But the Robb camp says the ads are political - because former Governor Allen initiated the S-O-L program.
Gilmore aides say the ads are a legitimate way to tell parents the program is a success.

(( Chuck Robb's military career covers 34 years in both the active and reserve service.
He was first in his class at Marine Corps Officer Basic School.
He was a military social aide at the White House, where he met and married the President's daughter.
Just three months later, Robb was headed into combat, commanding a rifle company in Vietnam.
He was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat V and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Silver Star... and today calls his combat time "the defining experience" of his life, where two men "literally" died in his arms.
Those claims have recently been challenged by some veterans of his company, although the ringleader of that effort has been a Republican candidate for Congress in California.
Robb is one of only 17 incumbent Senators to be endorsed this year by the Veterans of Foreign Wars PAC for his work on veteran's issues.
He is the only member of the U-S Senate to ever serve simultaneously on all three national security committees.
Both Robb and Allen have supported more defense spending, for equipment as well as pay and benefits for military personnel and veterans.
As a congressman, George Allen had a chance to cast such votes.
As governor, Allen fought to keep military bases open in Virginia, actually ending his term with a net gain in military jobs.
Never having served in the military, Allen's role as a commander has largely been efforts to back and boost morale among veterans and Virginia National Guard troops, even visiting the Guard in Bosnia.
The only military issue they've touched on in recent debates is the proposed national missile defense system.

The Allen campaign is critical of Robb for having voted against fellow Virginian and Senate Armed Services Chairman John Warner 27 times.
The Robb campaign says most of those were on smaller defense issues, and that on the actual defense budgets, the only time in 24 votes Robb and Warner disagreed was on the 1999 appropriations bill -- where Robb and John McCain both protested six billion dollars of what they called pork being piled onto the bill.

Americans know their major party candidates for Vice President a bit better following last night's debate. Republican Dick Cheney and Democrat Joseph Lieberman debated in Danville, Kentucky. The duo faced off on a number of issues ranging from tax- cuts to military readiness. On one of the hot campaign issues, Lieberman said Cheney and George W. Bush want to ``raid the Medicare trust fund to pay for their tax cuts.''
But Cheney says there's enough money to go around.
Cheney also said defense readiness has eroded during the Clinton administration.
But Lieberman says the U-S is ``ready to meet any commitment that might arise.'' Drew Levinson joins us live now from with the latest.
