Volunteers from Giles County and Monroe County, West Virginia spent the weekend looking for 40- year- old James Pearly Simonds. The Stuarts Draft man hasn't been seen since last Saturday. His capsized boat was found the next day. Since then, volunteers have been searching the river banks. Rescue workers say rough waters have made searching the river difficult and cold water temperatures have hampered underwater searches. Yesterday was the last day of organized searches.

The principal of Annandale High School in Northern Virginia hit the snooze button on the latest school fashion...pajama wear. The trend includes wearing pajama bottoms and a matching T-Shirt with flips flops or fuzzy slippers. Seniors at the school say there's no difference between the pajamas and sweat pants. But the principal didn't like what he saw and placed a ban on pajama wear. The Fairfax County School Board is scheduled to review and vote on a clearly defined dress code this week.
