First some background.

In May, Franklin County
Supervisors passsed a new county-wide
noise ordinance.

It was in response to dozens of
complaints from Smith Mountain Lake
residents who said outdoor concerts at
Mango's Bar and Grill were just too
loud.

Now, the owners of the restaurant
are sending a message to their critics.

A sign now reads quote pardon the

Bless America.

According to neighbors, this is
actually the third sign. They say the
first one read "we are open and yes we
are loud.

That was followed by a sign that
essentially mocked the recent news
media coverage of the problems at

Mango's.

This afternoon, I talked to the
General Manager of the restaurant by
phone. He would not comment on any of
the messages or explain what they mean.

He did say though that the
current one would remain up for the
rest of the summer.

Jean, one neighbor told me she
sees Mango's point about freedom, but
feels the restaurant has none when it
infringes on their right to peace and
quiet.

JEAN: Justin, since the noise
ordinance went into affect, has mango's
received any violations?

No Jean, we understand a deputy

has gone by and found noise levels at
times have spiked momentarily above the
allowed level. That's led to several
warning but so far Jean no violations.

Friday Vierling died, and more than 100

An autopsy Saturday confirmed
that carbon monoxide poisoning was the

Today, the last patient who
remained hospitalized was discharged
from Lewis Gale Medical Center.

Though she was listed in critical
condition on Friday, a hospital
spokesperson said the woman continued
to improve through the weekend and was
released this morning.

Meanwhile, Roanoke College says
it will install carbon monoxide
detectors in all of its buildings. The
school released this photo of a

The school has also lowered the

The fiber glass statue is part of
the Gobble de Art program.

75 gobblers are currently nesting
all over the town.


Organizers are trying to raise
awareness about the arts, while raising
money for town projects.

But as New River Valley Bureau
Chief Rachel DePompa found out it's not
easy to keep those birds safe.
