Twelve National League clubs return to the field six days after last Tuesday's terrorist attacks. In addition to a national anthem being sung, fans will notice some other patriotic changes during the games. American flags will appear on players' caps and uniforms, and ``God Bless America'' is set to replace `Take Me Out to the Ball Game'' during the seventh-inning stretch.
Baseball officials say they're unsure how last week's attacks will affect attendance at the games.
They're hoping for normal-sized crowds, and say they haven't had a flood of requests for ticket refunds.

A man from Roanoke [Tim Underwood] wrote: "This is a time that all Americans must come together as one and in unity cry out for Justice! Cry out as one America, for swift action against those that would penetrate our borders and murder our brethren."
Many are hoping for terrible, swift retaliation. [J. Gauldin/Callands]"I heard on TV that someone said the terrorists had won a victory, but in my eyes they just signed their death warrants. They are taking on the US and its proud people. We as a nation may quarrel between ourselves but we will stand together they better believe that. The Freaks, Cowboys, Yanks and the Rebels will stand together."
Still others urge restraint. [Mrs. Robbie Gallagher/Roanoke] "Comments made about taking revenge are totally unacceptable. The people that have done this cowardly act need to be held responsible for their actions and be punished severely, but teaching our children that revenge is right is totally wrong!" [Olivia Monem/Blacksburg] "Please remind viewers that the attacks in New York and Washington were done by people after political gains, and do NOT represent people of any particular race or religious background. Backlash against Muslims in particular have occurred in many places around this country and there is absolutely no justification for that."
[Sheila G. Conner/Roanoke] "We, as Americans, must NOT act like the dogs that attacked us by attacking all Middle Eastern nationalities that are living in the US To do so is to become terrorists ourselves."
A couple of viewers are urging the city of Roanoke to change the color of the Mill Mountain Star.
[Amy Collins/Christiansburg] "I have a comment I wish you would relay to the officials of Roanoke. Your reporting stated their comment as to changing the star to red, white and blue was that it took more than the flick of a switch. My comment to them: It will also take more than the flick of a switch to find, if ever, all the fallen heroes, the moms, the dads, the sisters, the brothers, the friends."
During one part of the continuous coverage on CBS, the network aired videotape of the attack on the World Trade Center, accompanied by strong language from the eyewitnesses.
Objecting to that, one viewer wrote: [Sandra Jones/Troutville] "I would like to know why that kind of language had to be aired? The pictures would have said enough. The sound could have been deleted. I believe this was uncalled for and if people don't stand up against it it will continue to trickle into our homes until it becomes commonplace."

The hope is still there that we might be able to save some lives. But the reality is in the last several days we haven't found anyone.
Over the weekend President Bush and his senior advisors continued their preparations for the war against terrorism, noting that it is a battle that will not be resolved quickly. Back in Washington, the President urged the nation to return to work and trust its leaders to fight back.

SOT: President George Bush

We're a nation of resolve. We're a nation that can't be cowed by evildoers.
Meanwhile, the hunt for prime suspect Osama Bin Laden is heating up. A Pakistani delegation is in Afghanistan to issue an ultimatum: Hand over Bin Laden or risk a massive military assault. The ruling Taliban militia says that would violate a tenant of Islam.

While the pursuit of Bin Laden continues, the U.S. is picking up the pieces of a normal life. The New York Stock Exchange opens today for the first time since the attacks and Major League Baseball games are scheduled to resume this evening. After a Sunday of prayers and remembrance the country may be set to go about business as usualbut does it with a heavy heart.))

[vo-nat] Engineers with a Roanoke firm that's been rebuilding the Pentagon say the death and damage toll would have been greater if the plane had hit any other part of the building. The plane hit what is known as "Wedge One"... which was recently renovated with blast-proof windows and walls, fire retardant rugs, and an updated sprinkler system.

One business sector particularly affected by last week's attacks... airlines.
One analyst thinks the total losses for the nine biggest U-S airlines will be 500 (m) million dollars. But the true cost may run much higher, as many people avoid flying and carriers foot the bill for beefed-up security.
Travel agent Mel Ludovici says that's one issue the federal government needs to address soon.

After recent approval, the Roanoke Times is making efforts to immediately begin plans for its new printing plant. The Board of Zoning Appeals granted a special exception for the expansion earlier this month. Today, Roanoke City Council will consider a resolution that would authorize the city manager to seek an amendment to the city's zoning ordinance. The change would allow printing plants in the city's commercial and industrial districts. A public hearing would be scheduled in mid-October.
