As of right now, the school plans to
demolish at least seven homes and one

And Natasha, General Peay says there
could be several more in the future.

QUESTION, Justin, I think you said,
VMI is already spending almost 300
million dollars . How does a school
raise that much money?

Natasha, half of it is state money,
the other half is coming from private
donors.

Malathion used according to product

Vest says it's one of the safer
products. If you look at the labeling
hazard for different chemicals, it
fall's under the caution category, for
low toxicity, the same labeling you'd
find on over-the-counter cough
medications.

But that doesn't mean it's not

Children are more at risk to the
harmful effects because they have a

desperately trying to hang with U-Conn
tonight and somehow earn a trip to the
Sweet 16 at the NCAA women's
tournament.

The game did not tip-off until
just before 10 tonight on the Campus of
Penn State - and Tech really did a
decent job.

star Ann Strother shooting the lights

The U-Conn senior helped her team
take a 19 points lead in the first
half, and when Tech rallied and cut it
back down to 6 - she again got it into
double figures.
