Over the last two years of his
life, the Reverend Jerry Falwell spent
his share of time in the hospital.

First in February of 2005 a
12-day bout with pneumonia. He was
placed on a ventilator because the
simple act of breathing was difficult.

Then a month later he came close to
dying of congestive heart failure. He
actually lost consciousness for several
minutes after going into respiratory
arrest. Then July of 2005 he went to
the Cleveland clinic Heart Center. His
family said he was getting a chemical

stress test and possibly heart
cauterization.

Later that year doctors did find a
70-percent blockage in an artery
--which they opened up with stents.

But through it all Falwell seemed
to bounce back to the health and the
pulpIt. When we sat down with him last
year -- he told News 7 he'd asked God
for another 15 years with an option to
renew.

But today's approval by the

Additionally, APCO will have
to begin charging the lower rate within
30-days and make refunds with interest
within 90-days. Those refunds will
will appear as a credit on your bill.

The dog got into a fight Friday
morning and killed a raccoon --that
later turned out to be rabid.

Pet owners who live in the Villa
Heights area of Martinsville are urged
to keep their pets inside or confined
until the dog is found. The dog is
described as a white Pomeranian
mixed breed. Rabid animals can transmit
the disease to people. In humans, it's
almost always fatal if not treated.

The battle to contain a massive

hampered once again by the weather.

Sot: Tom Speaks/Deputy Incident
Commander (10:07:36)

Today is the same thing, going to have
this weather, lower humidity, higher

temperatures and wind so we are
expecting the same kind of push and
problems today.

(natz fire)

Gusty winds on Monday pushed the blaze
over containment lines on western side
of the fire. The breach forced several
hundred homes to be evacuated, some for
the second time this week. But so far,
most property has been protected.

(karen brown, Lake City , Fl)

One thing that is making this fire so
difficult to contain is that its raging
through swamp land which means the
heavy machinery like this can't get in
deep enough to get in front of the
flames"

Sot: Tommy Dunn/Firefighter

can t get where we need to be.

Tommy Dunn and his team have been
working almost non-stop.

Sot: dunn

16 to 18 hour days

Fatigue is also becoming a major factor
for over 500 hundred firefighters on
the front lines.

Sot: Speaks again (10:14:43)

we re talking about record droughts,
incredible fuel loadings on the ground,

weather hasn t been helping one bit, so
our resources are getting tired.

Authorities say what they need most is
rain. Scattered thunderstorms are in
the forecast over the next few daysbut
it will probably take more than thatto
douse the giant wildfire that has
already consumed more than 300 thousand
acres.
