One bill eliminated the so called

punishment for those who plan for
others to carry out a killing.

Governor Kaine is morally opposed
to the death penalty, but has allowed
several sentences to be carried out

gallons of deisel fuel he was carrying
spilled.

Crews have dug somethign called a
"trench catch" as the first line of
defense to stop the diesel.

But, if it does manage to get

into the creek- material lines the bank
to absorb the fuel.

A mile down stream -in Catawba

These measures will be in place

The former NFL player was killed
by friendly fire....and after two
separate investigations it was
determined an accident.

But what was not an accident was
the failure on the Army's part......

Investigators say that officers
looking into the incident passed along
misleading and inaccurate information
and

delayed reporting that Tillman was
killed by his fellow soldiers.

The investigators have now
recommended that the Army take action
against the officers.

Methadone and valium were among
at least nine medications in her
system.

Experts say the sleeping
medication chloral hydrate is rarely

prescribed and is known to be deadly if
combined with certain other drugs --
including a sedative Smith was taking.

Two infections also contributed
to her death.

game to Giles and in the process,
missing out on the playoffs. In the

VO-NAT Kevin Clifford has been hired as


the Head Coach of the Highlanders.
Clifford was last a Head Coach at
Patrick Henry.


That stint ended when Clifford
was convicted of misdemeanor assault
for striking a player in the face after
a P.H. game against Halifax County

Clifford then resigned as the
Head Coach of the Patriots and appealed
the conviction.

A judge in Halifax County
reversed the verdict and Clifford was
cleared of the charges.

This past season Clifford served
as an assistant coach at Cave Spring
