In Lynchburg, falling trees and

neighborhoods ... emergency crews spent
the evening responding to calls of
downed power lines and arcing

Several roads were blocked by
fallen trees, and at least one vehicle

was seriously damaged when a tree
splintered and fell on top of it.

Drivers should be cautious of

The fees currently apply to
Virginia drivers only, and people are
upset over it.

Today the governor and Republican
lawmakers defended the fees and assured
drivers who get the occasional speeding
ticket they won't get socked with a
three- thousand dollar fine.

The fees apply only to
misdemeanors and felony convictions for
D-U-I and reckless driving OR
Virginians who've accumulated eight or
more demerit points on their records
since July first.

Delegate Morgan Griffith says
the Supreme Court's explanation of the

It happened outside a medical office
building on the east side of the
hospital.


We're told a visitor contacted
authorities after seeing a suspicious
object hanging from a tree.

The State Police brought out a robot
to check it and and soon after
detonated the device.

It's now been sent to a lab to find
out exactly what it was.

At no time was the hospital or any
building at Lewis Gale evacuated.

tested positive for the Avian flu in

VO-NAT Roughly 54-thousand turkeys had a


mild strain of the virus.

So...agriculture leaders issued a
ban on live poultry shows and sales
through the end of the month.

That ban would affect the State

Regional Fair.

Keys vs. Avalanche Thursday nights always turn out a :00 crowd at the yard in Salem even if it
is sometimes a little late arriving.

Those fans through the gate by
the third inning would see some solid
Avs' defense as Brent Krause is caught
trying to swipe 2nd base, catcher Jose
Lopez and Wladimir Sutil combine on the
throw and tag.

The Avs finally got a run across
in the fourth - Billy Hart gets the
sacrifice fly to deep right field and
Orlando Rosales scores. One to Nothing
Salem.

The Keys got that one back in the
top of the fifth as Ryan Finan doubles
to left and Kennard Jones scores.
