Meanwhile, a rare development
today when a majority of House
Republicans voted not to confirm the
governor's choice for Secretary of the
Commonwealth.

Republicans fear former union
president Danny LeBlanc (le- BLAHNK')
would try and repeal Virginia's right-
to- work law and restore voting rights
to violent felons.

Some House Democrats say they too
believe some of LeBlanc's statements
have been "over the top," but don't
believe his union card should deny him
a seat at the governor's table.

VO-NAT But a Judge has ruled if former


Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick
can walk a straight line, he won't go
to jail.

Vick was accused of pulling a gun on
three people in a restaurant parking
lot, but the prosecutor said
conflicting evidence lead to a plea
agreement.

Vick pled guilty late yesterday to
disorderly conduct.

Originally, Vick faced up to three
years in jail, but the judge sentenced
Vick to six months and a 500-dollar
fine.

All the jail time was suspended on
the condition he stays out of trouble
for one year.

Charleston Southern tonight.

And Liberty would bang the boards
from the start - Moriah Frazee

the putback and she draws the foul.

Then Allyson Fasnacht will get
one of her 4 assists to Egle

from Lithuania turns in the paint for
two.

The Flames also hit from the
outside - Rebecca Lightfoot knocks in
