It all started two months ago, when
parents and students rallied after Cave
Spring's Athletic Director was
essentially let go.

They were also angry about the
constant delays at the school's new
athletic fields.

In response, nearly a thousand people
signed a petition calling for
Superintendent Linda Weber's
resignation.

By late March, Weber decided to step
aside for sixty days.

For the past month, the school board

has been looking into allegations Linda
Weber rules by intimidation.

The county hired Marty Robison, an
independent party, to investigate.

So far, he's met with over 200
teachers and the chairman of the school
board says a majority of the staff has
good things to say about Weber, only a
1/3 has been negative which prompted us
to ask is that enough to fire her?

Natasha, she believes now more than
ever she made the right decision to
step aside temporarily.

QUESTION: JUSTIN THERE HAD BEEN SOME
CONCERNS WHETHER TEACHERS WOULD FEEL
COMFORTABLE SPEAKING FREELY ABOUT LINDA
WEBER, DO WE KNOW HAS THAT BEEN THE
CASE?

Natasha, Marty Robison has visited all
the schools and met with teachers one

afraid can contact him on his cell
phone and some have taken advantage of
that.

Last Week Last week, News 7 told you how some
staff members were reportedly getting
sick.

They were afraid it was mold, so the
school system hired a company to test
the air.

The results are now in and it reveals
mold was growing on a ceiling tile.

However, the tests show the mold
spores were within acceptable levels.

The school system is willing to
conduct another test. This time the
teachers can help choose the company to
test the air.

YES-MLB New York Yankees outfielder :00 Hideki Matsui broke

his left wrist in tonight's game
against the Boston Red Sox, ending

his consecutive games streak at 518.

Matsui was injured trying to make
this diving catch of Mark

Loretta's blooper in the first inning.
He landed hard on the wrist

and walked off the field with a

trainer.

Because of baseball ruleS,
Matsui's consecutive games

streak ends because he didn't play a
complete half-inning of defense or
complete a time at bat.

Denison vs. Roanoke Once the front rolled through the :00 valley the wind really picked up at the
Moyer and the temperature headed south.

The Maroons didn't have a hit in
the game until the fourth when Whitney
Purvis slammed a double over the
centerfielder's head. Tamara Poles and
Ashley Pierce both score. Pierce's
tally would turn out to be the eventual
game winner.

Roanoke pitcher Lyndsi Craig, the
Lord Botetourt product, had a shutout
going most of the night - here she gets
the strikeout to end the inning and.
She got her 18th win of the season.

But Denison made it interesting
in the top of the sixth as Andrea *CG final Roanoke Carella doubles in a run. But that was 2 it Roanoke hangs on for the 2-to-1 win.

News Seven told you about the
gasoline thief last night at
eleven...pumping thousands of gallons
of fuel and then selling it.

Well, police say a 10-year-old
noticed suspicious activity in her
Texas neighborhood and linked it to a
news report she had seen on tv.

The biggest clue for the little
girl was the powerwasher the thief used
as a decoy, pretending to wash the
parking lot of a gas station. He

apparently used to loan it out to
friends.
