Rhonda Chaplin was found slumped
over the steering wheel in a still
running car and her husband was lying
on the road, both shot to death in a

Although Huffman was questioned
immediately and acquitted on charges he
abudcted and raped Rhonda, her brother

what caused a deadly boating accident
on Smith Mountain Lake earlier this
month.


ENG#=3 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG locator Smith Mt. Lake
This Month The Department of Game and Inland
Fisheries says it was a combination of
factors.

There was a mechanical defect in
the cooling system of the boat's engine
that allowed water to be pumped into
the boat, but not out.

That caused the 33-foot
Hacker-Craft to take on too much
weight and capsize in the high wind.

64-year-old Richard Smith
of Moneta was killed in the April
Fourth accident.

44-year-old David Reynolds
of Grottoes is presumed dead. His body
has not been found.

Two other men survived,
though none of the four was wearing a
life jacket

The nursing program met 21 of 23

But there were two areas of
concern: the need for more faculty with

institutional effectiveness of the

they did fail to provide adequate

Well you might want to check your
contract and you might want to make
sure you're good to go before trading
one desk for another.
GRAPHIC=WVU



Tonight there's word that West
Virginia and former head basketball
coach John Beilein have come to an
agreement on what it will cost to buy
out his contract.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT




VO-NAT Beilein will pay the university


one-and-a-half million dollars for
leaving for Michigan with five years
remaining on his contract.

WVU announced the deal tonight
saying in effect that Beilein got a
bargain because the buyout is $1
million less than his contract called
for.

Under the agreement, Beilein -
who is now at Michigan - will pay the
money over the next five years to the
West Virginia University Foundation.

Western Virginia Education Classic and
hopefully given the annual game a
permanent home.

The annual college football
contest almost died when Victory
Stadium was demolished.

But last year - both Ferrum and
Liberty kept it alive just long enough
for organizers to land the perfect
venue - Salem Stadium.

In the past, Salem has not
allowed any football team other than
the Spartnas to play on the field
before December.


But the playing surface is all
prepped and ready for the installation
on field turf next week - and City is
anxious to welcome Virginia State and
Livingstone to town on Saturday
September 22nd. The Trojans have a
huge alumni base in the area - and
Jones, himself is an alumnus of
Livingstone.

This game began in 2000 as a way

GRAPHIC=VICK Police in Smithfield today raided


a house owned by Michael Vick. The
raid was part of a drug inviestigation,
but instead the officers found over 60
dogs on the property - some scarred and
malmourished.


Now, it's important to note that
Vick does NOT live on the property and
he was not there with the search
warrant was issued today.

However, PETA and the Humane
Society of the US are calling for
disciplinary action to be taken against
Vick.

Michael is scheduled to join
Bruce Smith, Deangello Hall and Frank
Beamer in New York Saturday for a
pre-draft tribute to honor the victims
of last week's shootings.
