Vater Colbert isn't bitter. He recognizes police have a job to do. But they may have been a little too quick to close the bank robbery case after people saw the bank surveillance photo and identified the suspect as Reverend Colbert. It probably didn't help Colbert that he admitted to embezzling 25-thousand dollars last year.

Health officials in Franklin County have issued a warning to anyone swimming at the upper Blackwater River section of Smith Mountain Lake. Recent water samples taken near Ponderosa Campground contained more bacteria than allowed by recreational water quality standards. The high levels mean anyone swimming in the area is more likely to become ill with gastrointestinal, respiratory, or skin infections. The elevated levels only appeared in the upper Blackwater River section, and are likely the result of heavy rainfall washing surface contaminants into the water.
