[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Bedford Co.]

A spokesman for the State DEQ says the owner of the trailer park capped the discharge pipe last week. State and federal government officials say partially- treated waste from the sewage lagoon had been flowing into a creek that feeds the Roanoke River and ultimately empties into Smith Mountain Lake. Trailer Park owner D-J Cooper apparently capped the pipe sometime last week, though he did not return our calls to confirm that. He reportedly had the lagoon partially pumped, as well. Because 22 trailers are still connected to the sewage treatment lagoon, though, it is unclear whether pumping the pond and capping the pipe bring his operation into compliance with the clean water act.

David Lee Roth, former lead singer of Van Halen, is training to be a paramedic in New York City. His tutor tells the New York Post that Roth is one of the best students she's ever had.
Several weeks ago he used a defibrillator to save the life of a heart attack patient.
Roth tells the paper he's already been on more than 200 individual rides in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn. He says no one has recognized him because he cut his rock star hair. (------------)
