(( For years-- Roanoke County officials have worried that Willie Keelings property would catch fire. Keeling has been amassing tires on his property for the past 30- years. In 1997-- the Department of Environmental Quality declared the site a potential health hazard and the county requested Keeling clean up the dump or sell his property. But Keeling's family was slow to act and back then felt the county was trying to run them out of business.

In November-- Roanoke County supervisors approved an agreement with Keeling and the Virginia Department of Environmental quality to get the site cleaned up. Funding for the project was secured and work was slated to begin later this year.

Her simple lines, original design and symbolism have earned her a global following. Charles Kuralt dubbed her "The People's Artist" for her wide appeal. She credits her success to paying attention and painting from the heart.

So does tragedy, like the terrorist attacks on her hometown of New York. Moss was home in Panama when the World Trade Center Towers were toppled. Although the only news was in Spanish, the images told the story. The artist responded with three new paintings.

Prints of the September eleventh pieces are being sold with proceeds going to a college fund for children of the firefighters who died. But regardless of the subject, from misfortune to frivolity, the Amish, who feature prominently in Moss's work, to geese, symbolizing loyalty, stark landscapes to abundant flowers, Moss says all her paintings contain a message.

This fire may bring back memories for those who witnessed, and battled, a tire fire in Franklin County almost seven years ago.

[SUPER=03-Franklin Co./1995;]


It was in late July of 1995 when black smoke billowed from the Virginia Rubber Recycling Plant in Rocky Mount.
Firefighters were able to contain most of the blaze within several hours, but they needed several days to put the last tires out.
Some months later, an investigation determined wiring in a machine at the plant started the fire.

The F-B-I says a child may be responsible for a bomb threat that forced a plane to make an emergency landing.

[SUPER=03-Salt Lake City, UT;]


The American Airlines flight was heading to St. Louis from Portland, Oregon, Saturday.
F-B-I officials say a child found a handwritten note in an armrest, claiming a bomb was on board.
The note appeared to be in child's handwriting and contained a spelling error. It had "bomb" spelled "boom."
Authorities didn't treat it as child's play, though.
The flight made an emergency landing in Salt Lake City, where bomb-sniffing dogs checked it out before passengers were allowed to reboard.

That's the idea behind a new exhibit in Lynchburg that documents the city's reaction to the September 11th terrorist attacks.

In addition to his usual camera apparatus, he's also been carrying a tape recorder.. talking with the subjects he's photographed, and making their voices part of his exhibit.

((DUNCAN: IT ADDS A REALIZATION TO IT, YOU HEAR THESE PEOPLE IN FIRST PERSON TALK ABOUT.. I MEAN THERE'S GREAT WRITERS OUT THERE AND GREAT T-V, BUT TO HEAR THESE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES FOR FIVE MINUTES REALLY GETS INTO YOUR HEART, IT'S AMAZING.
