good idea, although the company admits
its disappointed.

Only about 42-thousand people have
walked through these doors since it
opened, the company wanted triple that
amount.

So what's the problem?

Part of it, the company says is
educating people about off track

Colonial Downs had hoped to attract
large crowds from Greensboro.

As for Colonial Downs Natasha, the

QUESTION: Justin, how do they plan
to do that?

Natasha, Colonial Downs plans to do
more advertising in the Martinsville

been relying too much on the Greensboro

guilty of plotting a Columbine-style
attack at two high schools.

Yesterday's verdict came in an
appeal after a juvenile court judge in
March convicted the boy, another
13-year-old and 16-year-old Alan Newsom
on charges of conspiracy to commit
murder and conspiracy to use an
explosive device to destroy a school
house.

The three were accused of
planning to plant bombs at Albemarle

and Western Albemarle high schools and
then have a shootout on school grounds.

The jury foreman said the panel
reviewed all the evidence during four
hours of deliberations and couldn't
find any concrete proof of a
conspiracy.

TNT The duo is alike in more ways :00 than they care to admit, both firing
69's today. Mickelson showing some
nice touch around the green to save a

par after the flop shot. He's at
3-under, three shots off the lead.

But Tiger matched him thanks to
shots like this one at the par 3 2nd.
He knocks it stiff, right over the
flagstick to within about four feet.
He too is 3-under.

The feel good story of the
week, Billy Mayfair. Mayfair carded a
69, just 11 days after surgery for
testicular cancer.

Lucas Glover and Chris Riley
are co-leaders at 6-under, but the
story of the day was Tiger and Phil.
