But at a press conference late yesterday afternoon, Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page says it is too early to say the remains are in fact those of Jennifer Short.
Yesterday, investigators transported some bone fragments to Roanoke for D-N-A analysis, and THAT should say with certainty whether it is the missing Henry County girl.

Falwell is challenging a state law that limits the amount of property churches can own to 15 acres in a city or town .. and 250 acres in a county. Those limits were enacted in the late 17-hundreds .. when governments feared that powerful churches might overwhelm the state. The suit was filed last November. Today it takes a step forward when a federal judge hears arguments from both sides..

(( From 1978 through 1986 - before the arrival of Beamer Ball in Blacksburg. Bill Dooley dominated the landscape. As head football coach and athletic director he was all powerful - feared and often jeered by the administration in Burress Hall, but simply adored by his players. Back then the Stallions and not the Untouchables ran roughshod on the opposition and Bruce Smith and Mike Johnson were the ringleaders on defense. Under his administration, lights went up at Lane Stadium, the East side expansion was completed and the Hokies proved they could win in the Carrier Dome. It's tough for many to swallow - but the truth is Dooley helped set the table for the success that you see in Blacksburg today. ((BILL DOOLEY:)) Dooley, who has been inducted into 7 different hall of fames, was in Winston-Salem this past weekend celebrating the 10th anniversary of his last bowl team the 1992 Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Now 68 years old, Dooley is on the mend after heart surgery ((BILL DOOLEY:))
