FORMER SOUTH AFRICAN LEADER NELSON MANDELA DIDN T MINCE HIS WORDS WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF THE U-S ATTACKING IRAQ.

(SOT- Nelson Mandela/Former South African President)

"We are really appalled by any country that goes outside the United Nations and attack independent countries. No country must be allowed to take the law into their own hands."
THESE ARE THE KIND OF COMMENTS SECRETARY OF STATE COLIN POWELL COULD HEAR TODAY WHEN HE ATTENDS THE U-N SUMMIT IN SOUTH AFRICA. WORLD LEADERS SEEM UNITED IN THEIR OPINION AGAINST INVASION.

(SOT-Mandela again)

"it's not only the Moslem world but almost all of us are not in favor of that."
AND IT SEEMS COLIN POWELL MAY BE CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THESE COMMENTS. WHILE PRESIDENT BUSH HAS CALLED FOR A REGIME CHANGE IN IRAQ THE SECRETARY OF STATE HAS NOT ENDORSED MILITARY ACTION.

(SOT/COLIN POWELL, SECRETARY OF STATE courtesy: BBC)

"too much attention has been focused on the United States and what debate has been taking place within our our administration, as opposed to attention being focused on the Iraqi regime.
STANDUP: POWELL AND OTHER WORLD LEADERS SAY THE U-S SHOULD GET WEAPONS INSPECTORS BACK INTO IRAQ BEFORE FURTHER STEPS ARE TAKEN.
BUT IRAQ, WHICH HAS SHUT OUT INSPECTORS FOR YEARS, CONTINUES TO WAFFLE ON THE IDEA. STEVE DUNLOP, CBS NEWS, NEW YORK.))

In Henry County-- the drought has spawned another problem. The damage from deer is so bad-- the board of supervisors has decided to step in. The board made the decision after hearing from a local tobacco farmer. Over the past ten years-- he says deer have been taking a bite out of his crop-- but this year he says the problem is worse than ever.

Supervisors say they are concerned about the problem.
At last week's meeting-- they voted to ask the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to extend the county's hunting season by seven weeks. It's too late to extend this year's season-- but the board is hopeful something will be done in 2003.

(( )) The Hokies also picked two Big East player of the week honors. Defensive End Jim Davis is the Big East defensive player of the week. He had three sacks, four solo tackles and a he forced a fumble against the Tigers. It was just his 5th career start, but as a redshirt junior he is quickly becoming a leader. ((JIM DAVIS:)) Vinnie Burns, who averaged 45 yards a kick on his nine punts against LSU is the Big East special teams performer of the week. As for the Tech quarterback situation - the Tech coaches did work on Labor Day and they have decided to make Bryan Randall the starter against Marshall on Thursday night September 12th. ((BRYAN RANDALL:)) Randall lived in Charleston West Virginia, about 50 miles from Marshall, until his 5th grade year. To get his first career start against the Thundering Herd is too ironic.

The fear of flying since September 11th has drawn a record number of tourists to Virginia by car.
Attractions easy to reach by Interstate 95 such as Virginia Beach and Historic Jamestown have seen a steady stream of visitors since the first of the year.
Tourism officials at other historic sites such as Monticello have also been busy.
The one exception to the tourism increase is northern Virginia.
So far this year, the area's hotels and motels experienced a 1 to 3 percent decrease in occupancy rates from last year.
