Last night, searchers took A-T-V's up on the mountain to try to find any wreckage. A state police spokesman says there is NO confirmation that a plane did crash, and no airfields are reporting a missing plane. Authorities hope to have better visibility today.

There's just one snag, the original builder has pulled out of the project.
The Mirant (Mirr-ent) Corporation recently canceled plans to build the plant citing the global recession and falling energy prices.
The company is working with the City of Danville to find another buyer for the project.
The plant would be built just east of the airport in the Airside Industrial Park.

A bridge in Bedford County that was the scene of a bad accident last month in Bedford County is undergoing repairs.
But it's expected to be back in service soon.

[SUPER=03-Montvale]


The bridge is located over Goose Creek on Route 460 in Montvale.
That section of road closed last month after a tanker involved in an accident hit both sides of the guard rail, knocking sections out.
V-Dot is taking this opportunity to make the guard rails safer by extending them.
Officials say they are waiting on several parts and hope to have the bridge open to all traffic within the next two weeks.

Patrick County is facing a tough decision about the future of the school system there.
(-------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Stuart]


The school board wants to build a middle school, arguing the current elementary schools are overcrowded.
The Board of Supervisors recently decided to put a referendum on the November ballot asking residents whether they want to build it.
The project would cost more than 13 million dollars.
And some residents are opposed to any increase in taxes to pay for a middle school.
The school board wants to have the new facility opened by the 2004 school year.

In Henry County, another issue is surfacing about the school system. The decision they face involves a reconfiguration plan that has kept many local parents at odds with the school board.

The plan would close and consolidate several schools.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Henry Co.]


Under the current plan, Laurel Park High School would become a middle school next year.
But now the school's booster club is offering a bailout that could add up to more than a million dollars.
The boosters have proposed helping to fund the school system's projected deficit.
The only catch, the school board must keep Laurel Park as a high school and Axton Middle as a middle school.

Registered voters in Roanoke County will have to get used to new lines and new districting.
(------------)
[VO-NAT - :28]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke Co.;]

The registrars office is mailing more than 14-thousand new voter registration cards because of congressional redistricting. LAST year, the registrar's office sent out more than 50-thousand cards to voters in the county. But the congressional lines of the sixth and ninth districts were redrawn in December, so some of those cards are now obsolete. For the most part, redistricting should affect voters in Northern Roanoke County, Catawba, and part of the Poages Mill area.
