Thousands of hopefuls converged on Rockbridge County High school yesterday to try and convince casting directors they
were the one ---- *for the role as an extra*.

Virginia Casting has the task of narrowing down the thousands of hopefuls to about five hundred extras. After all the waiting the potential actors had a quick interview with the casting directors,and most were told very little about their shot at being in the movie. Some lucky ones did get a definitive answer and can now look forward to aliens landing in Rockbridge County. Filming is set to begin on the 13th when the extras chosen from the casting call will get their time to shine on the silver screen.

Despite the recent illness in Florida -- Dr. Michael Breiner says botox injections are safe if given by someone who is skilled and trained to give them.
He says if the person don't follow the proper protocols that's when there can be problems.

Botox is made from a bacterium, the same toxin that causes food poisoning. Dr. Breiner says since it's given in such small amounts it's impossible it would cause botulism poisoning.

Health officials are concerned that some people who are high risk may not realize it they need the vaccine such as children 6 to 23 months of age, pregnant women, parents with children under six months old, and health care workers who provide direct patient care.
So far, flu activity in the state is only sporadic.
