*CG locator Flowery Branch, GA
Falcons Training Camp A Miami, Florida television
station reports Miami-Dade police are
investigating Vick for possibly
carrying drug paraphenalia into Miami's
airport.

Vick allegedly had a water bottle
with a secret compartment that
contained marijuana residue.

A T-S-A official has the
following account: Vick was asked to
throw away his water bottle at the

screening area but balked at the idea.
Eventually he threw the bottle away,
and the official dug it out of the
trash and found the secret compartment.
The bottle was turned over to the
Miami-Dade police department for
investigation.

File Tape City officials say they received
the news around 4:30 this afternoon.

The furniture manufacturer says
declining sales for its domestically
produced product drove the decision to
close the plant.

Around 280 people are expected to
be layed-off by the end of March with a
severance package offer.

Now while the plant will close,
Hooker says it will continue with its

warehouse and corporate operations for
the foreseeable future.

It has to do with the city's
plans to update the guidelines for the
historic district in Old Southwest.

Tonight, more than a hundred
people came out to give their input to
city leaders.

Some want the city to adopt
stronger design guidelines to help keep
the historic flair of the neighborhood.

Others believe the current
regulations are too excessive.

City leaders will now take the
recommendations and come up with a plan
by April.

City council will then vote this
summer whether to implement any
changes.

things were heating up inside the

Patriots Gym.

Off the inbounds play, always
guard the passer. Emanuel Reid gets it
back in the corner and drains the
three-pointer for the Bulldogs in the
First Quarter.

The Patriots would answer and
this is almost too easy as Ty Smith
finds Anthony Banks wide open
underneath the bucket for P.H.

Martinsville working against the
Patriot Zone, Michael Milner will pass
out of the double team to Mr. Reid in
the lane who muscles the ball away and
into the bucket for the Duece.

OQ=...I'M MIKE STEVENS << When Troy Wells took over for his



(END SOT) boss he didn't just keep carrying the


torch - he turned up the flame on it.
Replacing a legend like - hall of famer
Husky Hall is never easy - and more
often than not - a flat out disaster.

But since taking over Henry
County's Coupe de Ville a dozen years
ago - Wells has won three state titles
and is now just a couple of victories
away from the 200 win plateau.

TROY WELLS

Modest yes, efficient - amazingly
so.

Winning three state title in just 11
full seasons of coaching towers over
both Hall - who needed 34 years to win
7 championships and the state
winningest head coach Paul Hatcher of
Robert E. Lee who has just four state
titles in 39 seasons.

TROY WELLS

MIKE STANDUP

TROY WELLS

But mostly he's just brought home
the wins and brought a sense of pride
to an area of the state that can use
all of the good news it can get.
