Panthers vs. Maroons As the sun was setting in Salem - :00 this little puppy was already through
for the night.

Top of the third, the Maroons
would fall apart defensively - Brent
Sowers takes advantage of the pass ball
and the former Patrick Henry star will
slide it safely to make it one to
nothing Panthers.

Now in the fourth - more problems
for the all-former Northside battery as
Jason Furry can't come up with Mark
Eubank's pitch and Joshua Tuck scores.
Roanoke committed 8 errors in the game. *CG final Ferrum
15 Ferrum blew it wide open in the Roanoke fifth, as Franklin County product Luke 0 Mitchell drove in two more. Ferrum
wins its 30th game of the season
topping Roanoke 15 to 0.

GRAPHIC=NFL The NFL draft takes place this

California tonight is making it hard
for Reggie Bush to enjoy the prospects
of being picked number one on Saturday.

VO-NAT







The PAC 10 conference says it is
looking into a report that Bush's
family lived in a house in Spring
Valley, California that was owned by a
man who wanted to handle their son's
professional marketing

No big deal except that all of
this allegedly took place while while
Bush was still playing for USC.

NCAA rules prohibit
student-athletes or their families from
receiving extra benefits from agents or
their representatives and you would
have to say that living in a home
purchased for $757 thousand 500 bucks
is somewhat of a benefit. Bush says
the house was leased and nothing was
illegal.

One group wants to remind top
politicians they are also victims of
Hurricane Katrina.

And to do that Louisiana watermen
gave away nearly 40-thousand pounds of
Gulf Shrimp.

The debris from Katrina has made
shrimping extremely hard and dangerous
and that they have received little
help.

This attempt comes as the Senate

Appropriations Committee will be
considering a one point one billion
dollar aid plan. (END VO) (END VO)
