on a hot tin roof in Blacksburg today.

*CG locator Blacksburg

Several people saw the cat
hanging off the roof of the Kent Square
Parking Garage.

Two maintenance men rescued the
furry feline.

They said it had slipped down a
slanted tin roof and got stuck in a
gutter...five stories above ground.

They managed to get it out, but
then the cat darted around the roof and
onto a tiny ledge.

They finally caught the cat and

are keeping it in an empty apartment
until someone claims it or adopts it.

Barry Bonds is now being investigated
for possible tax evasion. A federal
grand jury is looking into the
possibility that when Bonds was selling
his likeness, memoribilia and sports
equipment through his website and

selling his autograph he didn't report
the income tro the IRS. Remember in
1990, Pete Rose served five months in
prison for a similar offense.

The Titans already have signed
six of their 10 draft picks and talks
with Young and his agent will begin on
Thursday. Young was the first
quarterback selected in this year's
draft and the No. 3 pick overall.
Last year's top quarterback in the
draft - Alex Smith - signed a six-year,
$50 million dollar contract that
included $24 million in guaranteed
money. One hangup could be that
Young's agent Major Adams has never
negotiated a major deal in the NFL

April 2 Sadler will also be changing
manufacturers as he moves from Ford to
Dodge and takes over the number 19
Charger owned by Ray Evernham and
currently driven by Jeremy Mayfield.

This move now means that Robert
Yates racing - once the measuring stick
of the sport - is losing both of its
drivers - Sadler and Dale Jarrett.

Mayfield likely will end up in a
Toyota next season.
