Blacksburg Mayor Ron Rordam hopes
this is a wake up call about how
dangerous the gas is.

And as the investigation into the
leak continues - the cause remains the
same - a water heater with a faulty
valve.

But the town isn't stopping there
- they've paid for a engineer from a
private firm to come in and double

Psychology Professor Russell Jones

given out to students, faculty, and

If that holds true at Virginia
Tech, anywhere from a thousand to 15

could also help counselors at Tech and

Governor Tim Kaine told lawmakers
today.

Virginia's revenues ARE growing--
just not as much as forecasted....

The governor points to the
sluggish real estate market as part of
the problem.

He's ordered state agencies to
cut their budgets by FIVE- percent....
Decisions will be made on performance
so some agencies may cut more while
others cut less.
