bill is driving through the state
Senate.

*CG locator Richmond

The complex legislation relies on

bonding, a ten- dollar increase in the
registration fee and an increase in the
tax on diesel fuel... bringing it
in-line with the tax on regular
gasoline.

Salem Delegate Morgan Griffith is
carrying the bill- which is now headed
to the Senate Finance Committee where
it's been killed once before..

Griffith is worried about what
could happen to the bill, but hopes
senators realize this is the last
chance for transportation this year.

Vikings vs Cavaliers Along with the Championship a
berth in the Regionals was on the line

at the game which was played in Salem.

Pick this one up in the second
half, Botetourt trailing but Tamara
Phillips doing her part, she gets the
bucket and the foul on the cut to the
basket.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky
and good. Northside's Ashley Masterson
gets fouled while shooting the
3-pointer, it's good off glass and tack
on a foul.

More Vikings, You only call it an
air-ball when the other team gets the
rebound in this case were giving Kelsey
Pope an assist to Josalyn Clark for the
bucket.
*CG final Lord Botetourt Botetourt didn't give up their 43 crown easily Sarah Boeren with the Northside steal and lay-in not enough Northside 52 wins 52 to 43 to claim the Blue Ridge
