Monday The tests were done last week at
Dudley Elementary, after some students
became sick.

School officials wanted to see if
their illnesses were related to the
recent application of the pesticide,
malathion (mala- THIGH-on).

The school says it was NOT aware
the pesticide was being used,
especially during school hours.

Officials plan to release the
results to parents today.

Leaders don't quite have all the

know is it's going to take a lot of
brainstorming.

And what they want is to
capture the essence of not just Roanoke

Founded in 1882, Roanoke grew so
fast it adopted the nickname Magic
City....But in 1949 when this famous
