The state's politically explosive re-districting case was back in court yesterday.
State Attorney General Jerry Kilgore asked the state Supreme Court to quickly set aside a Salem judge's ruling.
Kilgore's motion asks the state's high court to bar Judge Richard Pattisall from enforcing his order that new legislative lines be drawn, AND new House of Delegates elections be held this year.
In March, Pattisall ruled that the Republican-dominated Legislature sought to win more seats, by packing Democratic-leaning black precincts into fewer districts.

It looks like a car wash for humans but this machine is the newest way to -look- tan without exposing your skin to har

t streak." SOT: Andrea Lee/ Customer "I always used the self tanner but it was always streaky and turned me a funny col

or.. Once I tried this I was surprised it looks real, more of a brown color." Each application takes less than a minute and costs 20 to 30 dollars. The color lasts about five to seven days. Customers say it's a lot faster and safer than u
sing a tanning bed or baking in the sun. SOT: LEE "It's a little more expensive but it's worth it because i get so much
of a better tan and I'm not paying someone to give me cancer." SOT: KOSTOPOLOUS "They look healthy and they don't have

to feel guilty about going in a tanning bed and worry about damaging their skin and worry about getting skin cancer." Dermatologists say any new product that helps people avoid exposing themselves to UV rays is a safer and healthier alte
rnative. SOT: Dr. Alan Rockoff/Dermatologist "It may be a good option for people who want to look tan without the adver

se health effects of going outdoors." But it's important to remember that even though you -look- tan, it still won't protect you if you do go outdoors.. so you should always use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15 to protect yourself from the harmful u-v rays that can damage your skin.
