Authorities had to tie him to a

described as the tale of two halves,
but with all respect to Charles
Dickens, it was more like a Clint
Eastwood movie - "The Good, the Bad and
the Ugly."

Travis Wells checks in from
Jacksonville where the Hokies lost
their cool, but didn't lose the game,
coming back to beat Louisville

Dumervil said it shows Vick has
no character.

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino
said it was unfortunate because kids at

has declared a state of emergency in
seven California counties because of
flood damage.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT A second wave of storms hit the


state this weekend, swamping parts of
southern California with up to eight
inches of rain in some areas.

Last night the town of

Collinsville was evacuated after a
levee was breached in the Sacramento
River delta.

If the levees fail completely,
not only would people and property be
in danger, the system that delivers
fresh water to much of the state could
be contaminated. (END VO) (END VO)
