CHERTOFF SOT: 16:19:42 "I believe my


philosophy's a risk-based,
vulnerability-based system. I think
that's what the 9/11 Commission talked
about. And a cookie cutter approach

that says, "Well, we just do it based
on population," or something like that
I think is not the most effective way
to deploy these funds."



A REPORT IN TODAY S NEW YORK TIMES
LOOKS AT ONE OF THE AGENCY'S EFFORTS TO
SPEND ITS MONEY BETTER AND BECOME MORE
FOCUSED.



THE HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT
CREATED A LIST OF 12 NIGHTMARISH TERROR
ATTACK SCENARIOS:



THEY INCLUDE A NUCLEAR BOMB IN A MAJOR
CITY.. PLAGUE SPREAD THROUGH BATHROOMS
AT AIRPORTS AND SPORT ARENAS.. AND
CATTLE SICKENED WITH FOOT AND MOUTH
DISEASE.



THE LIST TURNED UP ON HAWAII'S STATE
GOVERNMENT WEBSITE.. BUT WAS NEVER
MEANT TO BE PUBLIC. IT DOESN T INCLUDE
SPECIFIC LOCATIONS BECAUSE THE EVENTS
COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE.. BUT EACH
POSSIBLE STRIKE HAS A DEATH TOLL AND
ECONOMIC DAMAGE ASSESSMENT.



THE HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT WILL

USE THE LIST TO DRAW UP EMERGENCY
RESPONSE PLANS AND TO DETERMINE WHICH
CITIES ARE THE MOST VULNERABLE AND
SHOULD RECEIVE THE MOST FEDERAL
DOLLARS.



STAND UP CLOSE: HOMELAND SECURITY
OFFICIALS SAY THEY HAVE NO CREDIBLE
EVIDENCE TERRORISTS ARE PLANNING ANY
ATTACKS ON THE LIST.. INSTEAD THEY HOPE
THE INFORMATION WILL ALLOW THEM TO
DEFINE WHAT IT MEANS TO BE PREPARED.

PRESIDENT: I'M EXCITED BECAUSE WHAT WE
ANNOUNCE TODAY IS THE NEW ERA OF
HOCKEY.

If UHL President Richard Brosal is
excited, so are city officials, and the
hockey fans who kept the faith after
the Express folded.

Despite the recent history of empty
seats, the new owners promise to field
a competitive hockey team, and put the

marketing muscle behind it to be
successful.

KRISTEN DIXON/HOCKEY TEAM OWNER: I
BELIEVE IT CAN BE. WE WOULDN'T BE HERE
IF WE DIDN'T THINK SO. WE HAD SOME
OTHER VENUES WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO
INVESTIGATE AND LOOK AT AND IT KEPT
COMING BACK TO ROANOKE.

KEN DIXON/HOCKEY TEAM OWNER: IT'S UP TO
US HERE. IF WE MARKET OURSELVES
PROPERLY. IF WE WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY
PROPERLY, AND ARE INVOLVED IN THE
POLITICS AND THE BUSINESS IN TOWN THEN
IT FALLS ON OUR SHOULDERS.

A three year lease will go to city
council for approval in the next six
weeks.

Said to be similar to one that was
offered to the Express, the new
contract includes incentives such as a
provision to share some of the
concession revenue.

DARLENE BURCHAM/ROANOKE CITY MANAGER: I
THINK WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ONLY
BUSINESS PEOPLE WHICH IS A PART OF THE
WHOLE THING, BUT WE'VE GOT PEOPLE WHO
KNOW HOW TO MARKET. AND I THINK
MARKETING IS A KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF
HOCKEY IN THE CITY SO WE'RE VERY VERY

PLEASED.

The owners are holding a contest to
name the new team. they're trying to
sell at least a thousand season
tickets... and hope a large turnout for
two games in April, will be a sign of
things to come when the team hits the
ice in October.
