Police say the man was driving Southbound on the Blue Ridge Parkway, nearing the Roanoke Mountain Overlook Exit, when he and his wife heard a shot from a high-powered pellet gun. Then the man was struck in the head by a B-B that police believe was NOT fired from a standard B-B gun - but was instead fired with a high-powered device.
The B-B - which flew in threw the passenger's open window - struck the driver in the head - where it was embedded when police arrived. Police say the B-B did NOT penetrate the man's skull and his injuries do not appear life-threatening. He was taken to Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

(( Ted Hughes knew when he retired from his engineering job at VDOT six years ago, sitting around the house was not an option.
Then he and his wife were at an auction in Buena Vista, when they spotted their first horse- drawn carriage.

((THEY DIDN'T MAKE MANY SLEIGHS AFTER 1900...))
[RUNS= 03]


What started as a hobby is now his second career: restoring old sleighs, buggies and carriages.
Learning as he goes, Hughes has brought back to life vehicles most people have only seen in a history book.. and a business has blossomed with word of mouth his only advertisement.
[SOT 10:33:39]

((TED HUGHES/CHALKLEVEL BUGGY WORKS: I'VE DONE SOME WORK FOR A MUSEUM UP IN BECKLEY, WEST VIRGINIA. WORD JUST GETS AROUND, I DON'T KNOW HOW BUT IT GETS AROUND.. PEOPLE CALL ME FROM ALL OVER.))
[RUNS= 15]
[OUT Q=all over.]


Now his days are spent in his cluttered shop in the Temperance area of Amherst County.
In here, parts of one sleigh await painting.. the frame of a wagon is need of its body.
Hughes works on at least three different projects at the same time.. and has enough work right now to keep him busy for the next couple of years.
[SOT 10:32:39]

((TED HUGHES/CHALKLEVEL BUGGY WORKS: LOT OF PEOPLE USE 'EM.. THEY HAVE 'EM, BUY 'EM AND REUSE 'EM. SOME PEOPLE JUST WANT THEM RESTORED BECAUSE THEY'RE FAMILY HEIRLOOMS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT YOU'D BE SURPRISED.. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT DRIVE THEM.))
[RUNS= 15]
[OUT Q=that drive them.]
[SOT 10:34:08]

((HUGHES: MOST OF 'EM WANT IT, THEY WAIT 'TIL THEY WANT IT BEFORE THEY BRING IT AND THEY WANT IT RIGHT AWAY, BUT I DON'T RUSH IT. YOU CAN'T RUSH THIS WORK, YOU GOT TO TAKE YOUR TIME WITH IT.))
[RUNS= 11]
[OUT Q=time with it.]


While he does send some pieces off for special reconstruction, Hughes does most of the work himself in his own shop.
[natsot grinding 10:49:25]
[RUNS= 02]


Wheels are reconstructed spoke by spoke.. the dash of an old sleigh painstakingly recreated to match its former size and shape.
It's time- consuming work but satisfaction, Hughes says, can be found in a job well done.
[SOT 10:37:20]
[IN Q=It does you]

((TED HUGHES: IT DOES YOU GOOD TO SEE ONE COME IN IN A PILE AND YOU FINISH IT AND PEOPLE ARE SATISFIED AND YOU KNOW THAT YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE REPLACED AND IT JUST GIVES YOU A GOOD FEELING.))
[RUNS= 13]
[OUT Q=a good feeling.]

Moms who usually tell their kids not to play with their food might now be encouraging their little ones to dig in and be creative.
That's because the Oscar Mayer Lunchables Fun Snacks Vehicle is in town and Jacey Birch joins us now to tell us how a chocolate cookie tower could help you pay for college. [toss to Jacey in MB set] [LIVE -Jacey full]
Denise it's always a delight to have interviews in the morning but Travis Perry is really on our good side because he comes with sweets.
