[SUPER=03-Henry Co./Last Thursday;]

Last week, newly elected school board members voted to suspend a school consolidation plan. The group asked for a few days to look over the plan which would close five-schools and combine two-middle and two-high schools. The school board will meet this afternoon at one o'clock at the Henry County Administration Building. The board is scheduled to revist the consolidation issue and make a decision today. We'll have the latest on this issue coming up tonight on News 7.

The agreement came early yesterday. More than 70 scheduled flights Sunday had already been canceled but Mesaba says hundreds of other fights should now take off as planned. Talks continued past a Friday night strike deadline.
Terms of the contract are not being released until the pilots can officially vote on the agreement.
That could come as early as this week. Mesaba operates as a Northwest Airlink, and serves about 30 states including Virginia.

The state's Democratic primary could play a key role in deciding who will oppose President Bush in November.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]

Former 5th district Congressman L-F Payne visited Roanoke yesterday to meet with supporters of Democratic presidential candidate General Wesley Clark. Payne says Southwest Virginia voters can probably relate most to Clark, because of his rural upbringing and military background. Clark served in the Army for 38-years, where he became a four-star general. Payne says it's leadership like that which this country needs.

Parkway officials say they recorded about six-point-six million visits on Virginia's stretch of the road in 2003.
That is down 20 percent from the year before. They add that a year of abnormally wet weather led to the decline, as 2003 was one of the wettest years on record. North Carolina saw a similar decline in visits to its section of the road.
