Planten was arrested last October

Baby and Buster, two bears who
lived in Maymont Park, were killed last
week after one of them reportedly bit a
child on the hand.

The child went through a barrier
protecting the public from the animals.

Fearing rabies -- authorities
*euthanized* the bears.

Later tests showed the bears were
rabies-free.

The bears were then dumped in a
landfill, but after public outcry, they
were buried in Maymont Park.

Richmond's mayor has called for
an investigation into why the bears
were euthanized.

Local representative, Brandon
Bell, introduced a bill that would help
the community with funding, but now it

In the meantime, the association
will be holding a meeting next Sunday

notes about Don Knotts death, he would

A Covington family (Janet Smith) wrote
:"He will be missed by so many, I loved
watching all his shows and now my own 3
children enjoy watching The Andy
Griffith Show, and yes Don Knotts is
their favorite on that show as he was
mine growing up."

Some fans from Bassett (Debi and
Bill McCulloch) said: "These are shows
that have morals and values that we
need to have more of these days and
times. When everyone knew you by your
first name, and you weren't afraid to
speak to strangers, and didn't have to
worry about your family being hurt,
Thanks for all of the great memories."

And a viewer in Roanoke (Matt
Medley) said: "I have been moved by The
Andy Griffth Show, since I was old
enough to watch television. I have been
a constant daily viewer of the show

always. Andy , Barney and the gang
always have a lesson in life to teach
you that, no matter what ,love and
caring for one another, is all that
matters."

We also heard from people about
our Survey USA poll showing some
support for weapons screen at big
stores and shopping centers.

"I find it disturbing how many
Virginians want to suspend civil rights
guaranteed by the Bill of Rights
because of a shooting at Wal-Mart. In
America, the 2nd Amendment says we have
the right to bear arms, and it includes
the phrase "Shall not be infringed
upon." I guess people must have missed
this part. (Nick Reed/Christiansburg)

Another viewer (George
Stone/Vinton) wrote: "What will they do
in screening if a weapon is found ? I
believe State Law provides that any
business open to the public can post a
notice that firearms are prohibited.
Anyway, legal concealed weapons
permittees will just shop elsewhere and
avoid places where they are not
welcome.
