"It makes no sense to tell the enemy
when you plan to start withdrawing.

All the terrorists would have to do is
mark their calendars and gather

their strength, and begin plotting how
to overthrow the government and

take the country of Iraq.

"If the president thinks by vetoing
this bill he'll stop us from working

to change the direction of the war in

now is progress, then it's clear to see

policy with him."

THERE AREN'T ENOUGH VOTES TO

crisp in May, averaging in the mid 40s
for Blacksburg, and in the low 50s
elsewhere.

recorded around an inch of rain, but
the typical month of May is much
wetter.

From Roanoke, to Lynchburg, Danville

and Blacksburg, showers add-up to
around 4-inches.

++++++++++

SU: Don't forget - Mother's Day is May
10th. If you buy mom a flower, drop a
little knowledge and tell her May's
Full Moon is called the "Flower Moon" -
this is because flowers are abundant
this time of year. The full moon is
tomorrow at 6:09a.m.

Also this month, the Cresent moon will
be next to bright Venus on the 19th 45
minutes after sunset. The Roanoke
Valley Astronomical Society says this
will be a pretty sight. Also this

will be bright in the sky.

Titans vs. Bruins As Blacksburg head coach Shelly
Blumenthal was looking for his 300th
career win at Virginia's soccer mecca.
And as has been the case all season -
the Bruins were not challenged..

This goal turned out to be the

game winner as number 10, Alistair
Moore gets the ball off the deflected
pass and he sneaks it past the goalie
as the Bruins take a 2-to-nothing lead.

And take a look at the individual
effort by Albert Alwang on this play as
he outduels at least 6 Hidden Valley
players before slipping the shot in the
net. *CG final Hidden Valley
1 Blacksburg beats Hidden Valley Blacksburg 8-to-1 to improve to 9-and-0 on the 8 season.

The Bruins have now outscored
their opponents 73-to-2 this season.

Coach Blumenthal is in his 16th
season at Blackbsurg and during that
time his teams have won 300 games and
lost just 20. His teams also have 8
state titles and are certainly getting
primed for another run this year.
