The school system invited us to

Morningside Elementary to see for
ourselves.

There, the school day was extended by
25 minutes and teachers are using that
extra time for what is called Star

That involves putting students into
smaller groups at the end of the day to
give them extra help in passing the

But no such luck! Aubrey Hicks lives

Hicks violated a rule when he opted

his tin roof with metal. And he did it
without the appropriate permits.

Hicks admits he made a mistake, but
points out the tin roof would have cost
15-thousand dollars more. He says he

(END SOT) AND ACTRESS BEYONCE IS ON TOP OF THE


WORLD AND THIS MONTH SHE'S ON THE COVER
OF INSTYLE MAGAZINE. "Beyonce graces

the January cover of Instyle. She has a
big hollwood musical, a hit clothing
line and one of the coolest boyfriends
in the world." CONSTANTLY FIGHTING OFF
MARRIAGE RUMORS, THIS 25 YEAR-OLD IS
PRETTY SMART WHEN IT COMES TO MEN...
"She's learned that you can't rush a
man into anything. Not into a
relationship, not into marriage, not
into having children. When a man's
ready, he'll let you know. I asked
beyonce what her dream wedding would be
like, and she said I was never one of
those girls who dreamed about a big
wedding maybe me and my man will go to
an island, maybe we'll go to church,
but honestly I haven't given it much
thought." WELL, IF SHE ISN'T THINKING
ABOUT MARRIAGE... THIS DOWN TO EARTH
DIVA DOES SPEND TIME THINKING ABOUT HER
CAREER. "Beyonce said that some day
she'd love to see the headline,
"Beyonce wins an Oscar, a Tony and nine
Grammies."" THAT MAY NOT HAPPEN
OVERNIGHT... BUT FOR NOW WE CAN CATCH
HER ON THE RED CARPET PROMOTING HER NEW
MOVIE, "DREAMGIRLS". "Beyonce saw Diana
Ross at a party, and she was really
nervous, but Diana tapped her on the

shoulder and told her she was very
happy that Beyonce is doing
"Dreamgirls". Beyonce was so nervous
she thought she was going to pass out."

The United Way of Montgomery,
Radford and Floyd is selling Santa
Beacons this week.

They're little gold tins filled
with goodies and a flashing light to
guide Santa to your house on Christmas
Eve.

The beacons are two dollars, but
any money you donate above that will be
split between the United Way and the
Derrick McFarland and Eric Sutphin
Memorial funds.

They are the two officers killed
in the line of duty in August.
