KEITH READS Cassell's latest court appearance
comes one month after he was indicted,
along with a dozen of his deputies.

The 68-year old former state
trooper had hoped to hang onto his job
as Sheriff by taking administrative
leave until the case was resolved.

Two weeks ago he announced his
retirement.


No trial date's been set.

It's unclear whether the
defendants will be tried together.

Instead, he entered an alford
plea to voluntary manslaughter and a

That means, he acknowledges

there's enough evidence to convict him,
but does NOT admit his guilt.

Linkous shot and killed his
friend and neighbor, 15 year old Edward
Bertrand in the garage of a home in
2004.

Linkous says Bertrand was his
best friend and the gun accidentally
went off, hitting Bertrand in the

and a sack, as well as this forced
fumble and a quarterback hurry as the
Hokies posted their fourth shutout of
the season with a 17-0 win over
Virginia Saturday.

This marks the second time this

GRAPHIC=TECH With a 10 win season now locked



up - Virginia Tech now gets ready for a
little relaxation before finding out
its postseason bowl destination.

It really is pretty simple for
the Hokies.
GRAPHIC=BCS



Tech which is currently the
highest ranked ACC team in the new BCS
standings at number 14 is still
technically eligible to play in a BCS
game. According to people at Tech very
close to the situation - the Sugar Bowl
could still take the Hokies although
the chances are not that great.


GRAPHIC=CHICK FIL A However, if the ACC releases Tech from


the BCS tomorrow - the official invite
from the Chick-Fil-A bowl could come as
soon as tomorrow afternoon.

So, while it's still a little
uncertain where it all will end, we do
know exactly where Tech's current
string of 14 straight bowl games began.

day...But specifically for
women....there are now several choices
in birth control..

VO-NAT VO-NAT



They include pills that can limit a
period to three days or even allow
women to have their periods for only
four months out of the year. While it
seems like a more convenient choice,
some women are afraid it's not natural
and could, in the end, not be the
safest choice.


We'll look into those concerns and have
the answers
