((EDIE LIGHT/REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTOR: THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE SOUNDS SO REMOVED, IT SOUNDS LIKE A BUNCH OF ELDERLY MEN WHO CAST THESE VOTES.))
[RUNS= 07]
[OUT Q=cast these votes.]


No one would make the mistake of putting Edie Light in that group.
This self- described soccer mom is also a full- time volunteer with her church and the local Girl Scouts.
And this week at least, Light is one of the most famous 538 people in America.
[SOT 13:53:14]

((LIGHT: WE PRETTY MUCH AT SOME POINT OR ANOTHER HAVE BEEN GRASSROOTS PEOPLE AND HAVE BEEN IN THE PARTY FOR A LONG TIME AND HAVE WORKED LONG.))
[RUNS= 09]
[OUT Q=worked long.]


Edie Light is a Republican presidential elector for the state of Virginia.
When George Bush handily won her 6th Congressional district and the state Tuesday night, Light became one of those numbers flashed on t-v screens all across America.
She and twelve other Republican electors will cast their votes for Bush when the electoral college meets December 18th.
But with the election still very much in dispute, Light now finds herself part of the most unusual chapter in American history.
[SOT 13:51:31]

((LIGHT: IT MAKES YOU FEEL REALLY.. A GREAT DEAL OF ACCOMPLISHMENT TO BE AN AMERICAN AND TO REALIZE THAT WE CAN HAVE A DEMOCRATIC PROCESS AND THAT WE CAN HAVE A TRANSITION OF POWER, AND WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE BEING ROUNDED UP AND HERDED OFF TO JAIL BECAUSE THEY VOTED FOR THE OPPOSITION. EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD BE PROUD OF THAT.))
[RUNS= 22]
[OUT Q=proud of that.]

[Standup ] ((Critics say this election has highlighted the failings of the electoral college system, and they feel it no longer should be the way America chooses its president. As you might imagine, Edie Light disagrees. ))
[RUNS= 10]
[OUT Q=disagrees.]
[SOT 13:49:36]

((LIGHT: IT'S A PRETTY HISTORICAL ACT AND YOU KNOW, IT'S PRETTY AMAZING THAT IT'S SOMETHING THE FOREFATHERS SET UP AND IT SEEMS TO WORK PRETTY WELL.))
[RUNS= 11]
[OUT Q=pretty well.]


So next month, Light will cast her vote in the only election that REALLY counts.. for a candidate she finds very presidential.
[natsot 14:00:05]

((HE'S A NICE GUY AND IT'S AMAZING HOW MUCH CHARISMA HE HAS.. IT'S KIND OF HARD TO TELL IT FROM THE PICTURE, BUT BOY, HE SPARKS.. HE REALLY DOES.))
[RUNS= 07]
[OUT Q=really does.]


But whether he'll become the 43rd president is anybody's guess.. all Edie Light can say is, she's doing her part.

Muzzle loading season begins tomorrow, but folks at the Blue Ridge Shooters Club in Rockbridge County got ready yesterday by brushing up on their shooting skills and safety techniques.

[SUPER=03-Rockbridge Co.;]


About a dozen people came out for the annual black powder clinic. Though muzzle loading has been around since the 13-hundreds, the art has been lost on many hunters.
Often they buy the rifle, but don't know how to use it.
