Power is the name of the game at AEP. But some Smith Mountain Lake residents says the company has too much of it. Plus, Comair may be tipping its hat to passengers. The airline is up and running again after a holiday melt-down. And "Where's the beef?" Why, it's in Virginia and has been for 400-years.

But part of the plan is still waiting the "ok" from the federal government.
A-E-P wants the power to approve projects that now have to go through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
That idea is drawing fire from counties around the lake.
Leaders believe there are too many unresolved issues like mapping errors.

This following a crippling wave of cancellations during the Christmas travel rush. The travel nightmare began when a major snow and ice storm pelted one of its busiest hubs. Problems multiplied when a computer system collapsed and forced Comair to cancel its entire flight schedule hours before Christmas. Monday, the US Department of Transportation called for an investigation. Analysts say Comair must find a way to reassure travelers that they can depend on the airline during busy holiday travel periods in the future.
