Today, Washington DC mediator
Kenneth Feinberg announced how the
seven- point- seven million dollar
Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund will be
divided.

Victims' families have a choice:
they can take 180-thousand dollars or
divide that amount between a cash
payment and a scholarship in the
victim's name.

Some severely-injured victims are
eligible for 90-thousand dollars.
Their tuition and fees will also be
covered for the rest of their time at
Tech.

Less-severely injured victims
qualify for 40-thousand dollars, plus
tuition and fees.

Other victims, including those
who were in Norris Hall at the time,
are eligible for tuition and fees, OR
10-thousand dollars cash.

CK/TITAN TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS



<< Good evening, I'm Brent Watts in the
SkyTracker7 Forecast Center. The high
temperature today in Roanoke was 98 and
the low was 60. Locally tonight, clear
skies and light winds will lead to a
fairly comfortable night. Lows will dip

into the upper 50s and low 60s under
clear skies. The extreme heat returns
Thursday with highs nearing 100 in some
spots. The good news is, the humidity
won't be as high as last week. The
national analysis shows a large ridge
of high pressure across the middle of
our nation. The high pressure will move
east tomorrow bringing the heat with
it. Behind the hot high, a cold front
will push the hot weather away and
bring a return to more typical August
weather by the weekend. However, the
forecast calls for little shower
chances until next week. The tropics
are active, with Tropical Storm Erin
bringing rain to the Gulf of Mexico and
Tropical Storm Dean appears to be
headed toward the Caribbean Sea. Get
the latest weather forecast and radar

The spokesman for Vick's five
attorney team would not confirm that
the discussions revolved around a
possible plea agreement, but given
Vick's current state - that is a given.

ESPN also reported today there

was some disagreement within the legal
team as to whether Vick should enter a
plea ro take a chance on a trial.

Either way the clock is ticking
on the 27 year old quarterback's
future.

the area's top power hitter this past
spring, but until the Commonwealth
Games elite baseball competition this
summer he wasn't even on the Maryland

Now the two know so much about
each other that Helgeson has verbally
committed to play his college baseball

July 13th Helgeson put on a show for the :00 scouts as a member of the West squad
this July as he hit a homerun in each
of hit four games in the competition,

plus he hit a wooden bat batting
practice homer over the scoreboard at
Kiwanis Field.

The Terps are getting the total
package in Helgeson. The rising senior
is a Governor's school student with a
four point one grade point average. *CG locator Pulaski Co.
Group AA Semi-Finals This past season he led the
Titans to the Group Two A title game
with 10 homeruns and 43 rbi.

Helgeson has been playing on AAU
and showcase teams for the Roanoke
Badgers, Hitting Zone and Carolina
Hurricanes since he was in 7th grade,
but there's no question that two
productive days in July shaped his
future.

GRAPHIC=NEWS-7 AT 10 Two members of Roanoke City


Council are proposing a new cultural
and entertainment district.

The plan from Sherman Lea and
Brian Wishneff would earmark a third of
a penny from the state sales tax to
help fund cultural agencies there.

And modest tax breaks would
encourage more artists to live and work

downtown.

Joe Dashiell has reaction.

he never left the nursing home.
