Kirby Puckett passed away tonight
at a hospital in Phoenix a day after
suffering a stroke at his Arizona home.

Puckett carried the Twins to
World Series titles in 1987 and 1991
before his career was cut short by
glaucoma. He had career batting
average of .318, but the glaucoma
forced the 10-time All-Star to retire
after the 1995 season when he went
blind in his right eye.

Puckett was elected to the Hall
of Fame on his first try in 2001.

Again, he was just 45 years old.

GRAPHIC=NONE A gun- bill that has college


police officers up in arms barely
advanced in the Senate committee today.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG locator Richmond
File Tape The bill would allow Virginians
who legally carry a gun to keep it
locked up in their vehicle in public.

Supporters say it's gotten to the
point where legal gun- carriers aren't
allowed to *take* their gun anywhere
and believe the bill's necessary to
protect 2nd- Amendment rights.

College Police officers, however,
fear the bill could cause problems on
campuses.

That's because students are
notorious for leaving their cars
unlocked.


Even if the bill passes, Virginia
Tech's Police Chief says she'll
continue to enforce the school's "no-
guns on campus policy."

The measure will now be
considered by the full Senate.

Meanwhile, the legislature has
approved adding bus drivers and
teachers aides to the list of school
officials immune from certain assault
and battery charges.

It allows them to use
"reasonable" force when breaking up
fights without fear of prosecution.

It'll now go to Governor Tim
Kaine for final consideration. (END VO) (END VO)
