((President Bush went on the offensive, stating his case for an attack on Iraq before a full house of United Nation's delegates. President Bush "The just demands of peace and security will be met or action will be unavoidable." Bush laid out 16 reasons why war may be the only way to protect America, citing Saddam Husseins repeated violations of UN security resolutions. Bush argued, unless the Iraqi regime is toppled, the world remains threatened by weapons of mass destruction. President Bush "To assume this regime's good faith is to bet the lives of millions and the peace of the world in a reckless gamble." Bush stressed the importance of swift, decisive action. He told the UN that deliberations must be more than talk...resolutions more than wishes or there will be consequences. President Bush "Delegates of the UN, you have the power to make that stand as well." On Capitol Hill, lawmakers are divided on the best course of action - an indication a 'battle in congress' may come first.

It was just last week that they displayed a bust to the media of what they thought the man would look like.
Less than one day later- a call came in that led authorities to the family of Ike Imhauser of Lincoln County, North Carolina. Now the investigation continues. The tipster told police he'd seen the man at a knife and gun show in Allentown, Pennsylvania. What they don't know yet is: How did the 63- year old man end up dead at a "Parkway overlook" in Roanoke County?

A lack of rain is leaving one local business in the dust. After more than 20-years of selling lawn care equipment and making repairs ... Industrial Saw and Mower Service in Roanoke can no longer cut it. They're shutting down at the end of the month. Business Reporter Rachel Cannon joins us now....Rachel, is Mother Nature really to blame for this decision?

Jean, its owner thinks so. David Rakes has run the business for about four-years. He says sales are down 35 to 45-percent since drought conditions hit our area.

The stores serve residential and commercial customers and Rakes says sales have been hit hard on both sides. Because of water restrictions, lawns can't be watered and aren't growing ... so fewer customers are buying equipment or need parts and repairs done. By closing both stores, 15-employees are losing their jobs. Rakes say the entire lawn industry, including landscapers are seeing the effects of the extended drought. We're going to take a closer look at that on News 7 at 6 ... Jean?
