Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
President Bush today signed the Anti-terrorism Bill, giving law enforcement powers to authorities tracking down terrorists.
The bill gives the F-B-I new wiretapping and electronic surveillance authority.
There are also stronger penalties for those who harbor or finance terrorists.

Meanwhile, investigators are scratching their heads over how a state department mail handler who works in northern Virginia contracted inhalation anthrax.
And on the war front, Britain announces it'll commit 200 special forces troops to the offensive in Afghanistan.

[SUPER=03-Blacksburg;]

A judge has certified three felony malicious wounding charges against 31-year-old Victoria Shepherd. They stem from an alleged August 18th act of road rage on Route 460. Witnesses testimony said Shepherd was driving erratically, and purposely swerved into another car. Shepherd's six week old infant was in the vehicle. No one was injured. The Blacksburg woman also faces hit and run charges. Shepherd's attorney asked the charges be dropped, saying she did report the accident once she got home and that there's no evidence of intent. The judge denied that and also found Shepherd guilty of misdemeanor reckless driving.

Judge T-D Frith told Shepherd she had no business being on the road and sentenced her to 90 days in jail, with 80 days suspended.

(King, water hoses, civil rights archives etc)

Before what became known as The Movement ...

the outcry for one colorblind America ...

there was seamstress Rosa Parks in 1955, riding a city bus in Montgomery Alabama ... and a momentous act of civil disobedience.

NAT SOT



Mrs Parks, now 88, has been celebrated many times.

But the bus where it all began was lost ... until now.

NAT SOT



( Mark and couple walk toward bus in garage) SUPER: Montgomery, AL :31-:37

Donnie and Vivian Williams say this is the bus.

Her father bought it in the early 70's.

Parked it in the backyard to store tools and spare parts.

For years, the bus was battered by the weather ... and neighborhood kids with BB guns.

But the family always knew....

((SOT)) Donnie and Vivian Williams - Bus Owners--:51-:57


"THIS IS HISTORY. THIS IS LIKE YOU SAID, THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED. THIS CHANGED SO MANY LIVES. THIS CHANGED AMERICA."
((STANDUP)) (Mark Strassmann Standup) 1:02-1:12
"IN 1955, ROSA PARKS WAS SITTING IN THE BUS'S FIFTH ROW. THE FIRST FOUR ROWS WERE WHITES ONLY. THE BUS BECAME FULL. ANOTHER WHITE PASSENGER GOT ON BOARD. AND UNDER ALABAMA LAW, MRS PARKS HAD TO GIVE HIM HER SEAT. BUT WHEN THE BUS DRIVER ORDERED HER TO GET UP, SHE REFUSED."

(Courtesy: New Vision Pictures/"The Long Walk Home")--1:17-1:34
Parks' arrest launched the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott.

50-thousand blacks refused to ride. As one woman said, "My feets are tired, but my soul is rested."

Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Montgomery's segregated bus law was unconstitutional.

((SOT))(Prof. Jaqueline Rouse - Civil Rights Historian)--1:36-1:45


"TO ME, WHAT THE BUS DOES IS TO BECOME THE POINT OF EMPOWERMENT, IN THE SENSE OF SAYING, THIS IS WHAT I CAN DO, AND CHOOSE TO DO, KNOWING WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WILL BE."

No one recorded Rosa Park's arrest.

So is this THE bus?

NAT SOT


"SHOW THEM WHERE THE NUMBER IS, DONNIE."

It could be a valuable number.

Number 2857, the Cleveland Avenue line, Mrs Park's line.

Valuable to history, and the Williamses.

They're SELLING the bus.

NAT SOT


"THERE IS NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER. I JUST NEEDED PROOF."

As do on-line BUYERS. Minimum bid: fifty-thousand dollars.

Mary Cummings just may have that proof.

((SOT))


"YES IT IS THE BUS.'

Charles Cummings was the bus line's manager in 1955.

He meticulously recorded the arrest and boycott. In his own writing, is the bus driver's name -- "Blake" -- and its number "2857."

And his widow just found his scrapbook.

((SOT)) (Mary Cummings - Busline Manager's Widow) 2:38-2:43


"AND I'D SAY WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT? AND HE'S SAY BECAUSE ONE DAY IT WILL BE WORTH SOME MONEY TO SOMEBODY I HOPE."

The Williamses hope it's THEM.

As they sell a 1936 rustling hulk ... and apparently, one of American history's great accidental stages.
