Taco Bell says it has narrowed
the search for its e-coli outbreak to a
single source.

The company says each of the nine
affected restaurants in the New York
City area use the same food

distributor, but they won't publicly
name it.

The nine restaurants had to shut
down for a while after dozens of
customers got sick.

Some of them are vegetarians, so
produce is being checked out as a
possible source.

Taco Bell was planning to re-open
all the restaurants today, and health

Over the last week you may have
seen this helicopter hovering over the
Roanoke Valley.

Today the power company was
clearing around power lines near
Carvins Cove.

Saws- attached to a cable hanging
from the helicopter - cut tree limbs
removal crews would have a hardtime
reaching.

It's hoped this will keep limbs
from going into lines during upcoming
stormy wintry weather.

Cave Spring vs. William Byrd The home fans in Dog House were :00 jumping tonight in what would be tight
game from start to finish.

The Knights will play some
defense in transition as they make the
steal and take it end to end for the
driving score.

Byrd will come right back with a
little transition hoops of its own.
Kendra Bush - the senior captain gets
the steal - and she will all the way to
the rack for the bucket.

We continue the defensive theme
with yet another steal - this time the
Knights will drive it in for another
layin as the Knights take the lead. *CG final Cave Spring

getting some tickets for the Chick Fil
A bowl and then hanging out in Atlanta
to ring in the New Year - you better
get out the credit card and get on

ebay.

Officials at the bowl in Atlanta
announced this afternoon that this
year's game between Virginia Tech and
Georiga is now a complete sell-out.

Both the Hokies and Bulldogs
asked for 18 thousand five hundred
tickets a piece, and each school sold
that allottment in one day.

More than 75 thousand fans are
expected to be on hand in the Georgia
Dome. And there is a good chance it
could be a record crowd breaking the
previous mark of just over 75 thousand
set in 2003 when Clemson played
Tennessee.
