Two non-profit groups are protesting the decision by James Madison University's board of visitors to stop distributing emergency contraception on campus.
Virginians Aligned Against Sexual Assault and Virginians Against Domestic Violence said they've canceled an annual training retreat at the school. The groups said they're concerned about the effect the school's decision could have on victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. A university spokesman said he regretted that any group or organization would decide NOT to come to the university, but he understood they are making a statement.

Turnout at many of the events has been much lower than previous years.
Organizers say if they end up in the red this year, it could affect next year, meaning there may be fewer events.

Imam Samudra is charged with planning and executing the blasts that killed 202 people.
Samudra has told the media that he wanted to kill as many Americans as possible.
Seven were killed in the attack.
Defense attorneys are demanding that the case be dropped, because the bombings occurred before new anti- terrorism laws were passed.
Prosecutors have a chance to respond when the case resumes Wednesday.

A plan by a Martinsville company to generate energy by burning old tires appears to be going forward despite concerns raised by environmentalists and residents. Tire Energy Corporation has proposed to build a 3-point-5 million dollar plant in a Henry County industrial park to burn waste tires to generate steam to sell to industrial users. The company has applied to the state Department of Environmental Quality for an emissions permit, which the department says it will probably issue. Some neighbors worry that the plant's emissions will increase ozone levels and that the ash could contaminate ground water with toxic lead and cadmium.
