One man is dead after colliding head-on with a pickup truck on Franklin Road yesterday. Police in Roanoke say 51 year old Samuel Eugene Brooks of Union Hall drove nearly a quarter mile down the wrong side of the road -- hitting two different vehicles. Brooks first sideswiped a Mazda, then shortly after hit a Chevy pickup truck head on. The other drivers and passengers were taken to the hospital. No word on their conditions.
Brooks was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two sites near Dixie Caverns remain at the top. The Higginbotham Farms site bounded by the Roanoke River and a Norfolk Southern rail line is number one. The Horn Property on West River Road is ranked second. Third on the list is the Newbern site, which adjoins Interstate 81 and the Days Inn at Plantation Road. The rest of the top five includes the site of the old Ingersoll Rand plant, and the Old Mountain Road site immediately behind it.

Warner presented his plan to members of the House and Senate money committees in Richmond yesterday. He recommends a three- percent pay- raise for state employees and an additional 50- million to public schools. To ensure that Virginia's triple-A bond rating stays intact, the governor proposes depositing nearly 230- million- dollars into the "Rainy Day Fund." He also wants to cut the sales tax on food by one and a half percent. Warner says he hopes lawmakers will support his one-time investments and not spend the state's 900- million- dollar surplus on long- term projects.

(("Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" is two hours of fantasy, suspense, dynamic visuals and excellent actors! "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" begins with the Baudelaire children facing the terrible news that their parents have been killed in a fire which also destroyed their beautiful home. Violet Baudelaire (Emily Browning) is a brilliant girl with a gift for invention. Klaus Baudelair (Liam Aiken) is a voracious reader and remembers everything he reads. Sunny (Kara Hoffman) talks in baby-talk gibberish (with subtitles) and bites things with her sharp teeth. The Baudelaire children's sizable estate is looked after by Mr. Poe (Timothy Spall). Mr. Poe is also responsible for getting the children to their new guardian, Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) who is only interested in the children's estate. Count Olaf is up front with the children about his intentions even stranding them in a car parked on railroad tracks as the train speeds toward them. The children are eventually taken away from Count Olaf and taken to live with Uncle Monty ( Billy Connolly) who is obsessed with snakes. The children begin to suspect that their parents were involved in things they never knew about. Count Olaf shows up as an impostor to take the children back and causes the death of Uncle Monty. The children then go to live with Aunt Josephine (Meryl Streep) who is afraid of everything. The children learn that their parents were investigating mysterious fires before their death. I have to stop before I give too much away, but I'll tell you the children get to the bottom of it. Everything here is top notch. Script, actors and especially the look of the film. The creepy, mysterious visuals dazzled me from beginning to end. Lots of great cameos here too, Luis Guzman, Cedric the Entertainer, Catherine O'Hara, Dustin Hoffman and the man who has done more movies this year than any other, Jude Law. A few years ago I got tired of the ridiculously stupid roles that Jim Carrey played over, and over, again. He stretches his legs here playing many different character roles here quite well. All of the actors who play the Baudelaire children were amazing. Be sure to stay for the credits, they are done in such an amazing way, it was almost watching another version of the same movie. ))
