Last Night Police say 45-year-old Bernard
Taylor stole a ring from the JC-Penney
store at Tanglewood Mall.

Police and an ambulance were
called to the parking lot after a store
employee chased the suspect to his car.

The employee was dragged a short
distance by a light colored Lexus and
was taken to the hospital with non-life
threatening injuries.

But Police say Taylor's crime
spree actually began yesterday
afternoon with a stolen credit card.

Later that night, he was chased
from Penney's.

Police say the spree continued
about an hour later with an attempted
hold-up at Diva's House of Hair at
Lamplighter Mall in Roanoke.

Taylor then allegedly robbed the

residents of a home on Raymond Avenue.

Taylor was caught when his Lexus
crashed on Lewiston Road while being
chased by Roanoke police.

The U-S Naval Observatory says a
leap second will be inserted in the
world's clocks just before 7 p-m

Leap seconds are occasionally needed
to keep the clocks and the Earth in

The last leap second occurred seven

Knights vs Patriots A former Cave Spring legend was
in the stands, Daniel Payne, also a
former Channel 7 intern, he told me he
was sitting behind some guy named J.J.

Pick this one up in the third
quarter and the Knights came out of the
locker-room rolling. Danny Aiken with
the 3-pointer and the Knights were up.

Aiken looking for another 3
pointer, this one off a bit off the
mark, but David Redick has his back
missing once, but he wanted the bucket
and the foul.

Patriots would come back in this
one, Gus Payne with the nice baseline
drive for the bucket, P.H. down 5.
*CG final Patrick Henry Patrick Henry would come all the 68 way back, Mark Grogan with the pretty Cave Spring move in the lane and the foul. 62 Patriots win 68 to 62 over Cave Spring.
