The affected children are from the same

School, the other at Bedford Hills
Elementary.

The Lynchburg Health Department
notified school officials Monday.
Letters went home Tuesday afternoon at
both Linkhorne and Bedford Hills
letting parents know what's going on.

Because the risk is low, health
officials are not recommending that
anyone at either school be given any
kind of preventative medicines.

For now, officials feel they can just
monitor the situation.

That yesterday from Republican

Delegate Scott Lingamfelter.

Speaking to a conservative group,
the Delegate endorsed a new plan to
address the issue.

It would base real estate taxes
on the price paid for the home,
regardless of it's current market
value.

The constitution would need
amending for the plan to work.

Lingamfelter also vowed to
continue his fight to eliminate the car
tax.
