Hundreds of students stayed home
yesterday because of a death threat
that was found two weeks ago.

The note ... written on a
stairwell at Jefferson Forest High
School ... indicated a date that looked
like May 11th.

School officials say more than
half of the 13-hundred students stayed
home yesterday ... despite an increased
presence of sheriff's deputies and
bomb-sniffing dogs on campus.

Students who did miss school will
be allowed to make up their S-O-L
testing later.

A reward in the case has been
increased to 600 dollars.

County did not cause any disruptions
yesterday, as hearings went on as
scheduled.

But a lawyer representing Floyd
Prosecutor Gordon Hannett (HAN-net

Supreme Court of Virginia to overturn a
judge's order appointing a replacement,

while Hannett serves in Iraq.

OQ=make the system work smoothly. The elected Commonwealth's


Attorney, Gordon Hannett, is a captain
in the Army Reserve, recently called to
active duty.

Before he left, he hired
Christiansburg Attorney Dennis Nagel as
his deputy, to run the office in his
absence.

And now Hannett's attorney is
arguing that Judge Grubbs did not have
the jurisdiction to appoint an acting
prosecutor.

In a motion requesting an
expedited review of the case, Hannett's
lawyer wrote that the judge's order is
a matter of great concern to the
citizens of Floyd County, and to
Hannett who is unable to carry out his
constitutional duties, and is not

receiving the salary of his office.

(TAG)

Hannett's attorney also suggests
the case could have an impact beyond
Floyd County, because it's likely to
affect the interests of other
constitutional office holders facing
activation in the US Armed Forces.

for Mr. Smith. The police are looking
into the matter- but say that it is
very hard to prosecute scammers out of
the country. Remember not to trust
anyone you don't know on the phone and
if they pressure you or keep calling-

just hang up. And if you know someone
like Mr. Smith that may be an easy
target- why not check up on them today?
You can make sure they're being
careful with who they talk to- and at
the very least- they'll get a visit
from a friend.

Yesterday, Culkin testified that he
met Jackson when he was nine or ten

The pair slept in the same bed
several times, but Culkin said he had
no reason to believe that Jackson ever

Later the defense played a videotape to

Attorney, Gordon Hannett, is a captain
in the Army Reserve, recently called to
active duty.

Before he left, he hired
Christiansburg Attorney Dennis Nagel as
his deputy, to run the office in his
absence.

And now Hannett's attorney is
arguing that Judge Grubbs did not have
the jurisdiction to appoint an acting
prosecutor.

In a motion requesting an
expedited review of the case, Hannett's
lawyer wrote that the judge's order is
a matter of great concern to the
citizens of Floyd County, and to
Hannett who is unable to carry out his
constitutional duties, and is not
receiving the salary of his office.

(TAG)


Hannett's attorney also suggests
the case could have an impact beyond
Floyd County, because it's likely to
affect the interests of other
constitutional office holders facing
activation in the US Armed Forces.
