At Elm Avenue for example, there are

the early stages, actual construction
may be 10 to 15 years away.

Funding is also an issue, it's safe
to say it will cost millions of dollars

interchanges.

"Rob Van Dam" and "Sabu".

Highway Patrol in Ohio pulled the
two over earlier this month for going

officers searched the car they found 18
grams of mariuana and five tablets of
the pain killer Vicodin.

Both faced various drug charges
related to the incident.

Since the incident, Van Dam not
only lost his WWE title but his ECW

Blue Rocks vs. Avalanche It was another feed your face :00 night at Salem Memorial and these folks
were willing to stand in line to get
their share of the grub.

There was way more food than
there were hits - this is the first
base hit of the game as Bo Torbert find
a hold beween second and third and the
hitting drought was over.

In fact, Salem threatened to
score in the fourth as Ole Sheldon
picks up the base hit and moves Torbert
over to third, but the Avs would leave
the runners stranded.

Here's some nice Salem defense as
Rory Shortell snares the line drive *CG final Wilmington and turns and fires to Edwin Maysonet. 0 He and Neil Sellers play monkey in the Salem middle.
1 Jeffrey Mackor finally drove in a
run in the bottom of the ninth as Salem
wins it 1-to-nothing.
