Today, Roanoke Electric Steel announced
it will merge with Steel Dynamics of
Fort Wayne, Indiana -- pending approval
from stockholders.

Officials say the agreement is the best
outcome for long-term success.

The 240 MILLION dollar deal includes
Roanoke Electric Steel's two facilities
in Roanoke and West Virginia -- and all
of its subsidiaries.

Steel Dynamics is also expected to
invest between 50 and 80-million
dollars to improve the Roanoke plant.

Officials say a "few" senior managers
may lose their jobs as a result of the
merger.

gallons of Gatorade were consumed by
Grant and Travis alone.

country by storm.

combination of a crossword puzzle and a
math test.

works.

OQ=CBS NEWS < (END SOT) has a new neighbor in newspapers



worldwideand it may be a lot easier to
play than say



NATS-su doku??// su doku?// su doku?



That would be pronounced "su
dough-koo"The Japanese words for single

and number You can spot the puzzle's
players from a mile away



SOT-I saw the little vein in his


forehead start popping out



Yes, it can get "that" intensejust ask
this father son duo who, since

discovering the game, who hold their
own mini SuDoku tournaments during


their morning commute.



SOT (Jeff Seigel/SuDoku Player) no one


really knows a closet sudoku

player and everyone's coming out
finally//7:52ishyou've gotta play it

to understand it.



STANDUP (Tracie Strahan/Reporting) The
number combos may seem

threatening but, you don't have to be a
member of Mensa to get in on the

crazesu doku puzzles traditionally
contain 9 three-by three grids.

Players are required to fill every row
and column using the numbers one

through 9 without repeatingno math or
formulas required.



That's Wayne Gouldthe New Zealand
native considered the father of

Modern SuDoku



SOT (Wayne Gould/Creator) not to be


immodest about it, but if it hadn't

been for me, we still wouldn't know
what sudoku was



After centuries in seclusion, the

game's re-birth came as he stumbled

upon a book of puzzles at a book store
in Japan.



Sot (Wayne Gould/Creator) I compared
the solutions in the back with the

puzzles in the front and sort of worked
out what you had to do



What may not be puzzling is the game's
sweeping popularityleading it to

be compared to another pop culture fad
that made us all scratch our

heads.



If you're interested in taking your
first SuDoku steps



SOTTry it once and it'll be a love


affair



one that may be forever written in
puzzle historyjust remember to use

pencil!
