TRUCKS/TRAINS FS IN MONITOR By all accounts, the Inland Port
has been a big success, but that may
come as little comfort to residents of
western Virginia who are concerned
about the location of the new
intermodal facility.

DOUBLE BOXES=JOE/JEAN-KEITH DOUBLE BOXES



A key difference... the inland
port is located in an area that was
identified for industrial development
as early as the mid-70s... so unlike
Elliston, it's a corridor where the
development has been expected, and
encouraged.

JEAN QUESTION

How does the location of the
Inland Port compare with the proposed
site in Elliston?

Firefighters had to battle heavy
smoke more than anything.

At least six apartments were
located inside the building at the
corner of Academy and Clay Streets.

Fire investigators say a gas
water heater ignited the fire, causing
at least 150 thousand dollars worth of
damage.

All of the tenants got out
safely.

The Red Cross is helping out with
temporary housing.

Several recent accidents have shown
us just how dangerous habitual

it is to keep them off the streets.

Are Virginia's D-U-I laws tough
enough to deal with these cases?
