Some had leaked and fluid solidified on the warehouse floor.
At the time, federal agents were cleaning up the site and trying to find the owners of the building.

The sheriff's office says it'll be no different than airport security measures already in effect. In fact- -like the airport- -the sheriff recommends people arrive an hour before they're scheduled to be in court in order to get to the courtroom on time. The stepped up security was brought on by September 11th. It has just taken a while to get a plan in place.

Glad Rags owner Pete Ragone (Ra-GO-nee) says he's closing the Buchanan plant because of low order volume. He says much of the textile work has gone overseas. In the mid-eighties, the plant was Buchanan's largest employer, with over 100- workers, but in recent years that number has been lowered to around 30.

The Virginia Court of Appeals says a Buena Vista man can visit one of the two children.

The decision reverses a lower court's ruling in the case of Carlton Conley.
In May, a Stafford County judge eliminated Conley's right to unaccompanied visits with the child who was erroneously given to him and Paula Johnson by the University of Virginia Hospital in 1995.

But on Tuesday, the appeals court ruled that Paula Johnson failed to prove Conley's marriage and relocation to Buena Vista hurt the child.
