<< Strong storms with very high winds
moved off to the east this afternoon
and are out of the area. We've had
several reports of funnel clouds and
wind damage in Lynchburg and Forest. A
weak cool front will knock temperatures
down a bit this evening, but it will
still be rather warm and definitely
humid. The rest of the week calls for
partly sunny skies and a 20%-30% chance
of showers and thundershowers, mainly
in the afternoon. Any storm that
develops could contain gusty wind, very
heavy rain, lightning and hail.
Damaging wind seems to be the major
threat with storms today. High heat
will also be a major weather headline.
Record highs possible again by the end
of the week as highs near 100. Right
now, the weekend looks warm with partly
sunny skies. TUESDAY NIGHT: Variably

Just a few months ago.. spinal
fusion was the only surgery option for
Garry Bowles.

It required removing the disc in his
neck that was pinching the nerve and
then using a metal plate and piece of
bone to hold the area together.

An area doctor says one downside is
it leaves the patient with no movement
in that area of the spine.

That's why he's excited that the FDA
recently approved the first artificial
cervical disc.

GRAPHIC=TECH The Hokies are now down to the


final practices before they begin game
week preparations for East Carolina
next week.

Today - just three days before
the final scrimmage on Friday - Frank
Beamer and his staff decided to
permanently move Ike Whitaker to wide
receiver for this season.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG locator Blacksburg
:00 Whitaker has spent most of the
summer going back and forth between
wide out and quarterback.

This decision means that true
freshman Tyrod Taylor is now number two
on the quarterback depth chart with
Cory Holt third string.

The coaches have been debating
whether or not to redshirt the highly
touted freshman from Hampton, and this
is the real indicator that he will
play should something happen to Sean

Glennon. Taylor brings a ton of skills
to the table, but perhaps more than
anything he brings a refreshing sense
of humility.

ESPN2 This morning at Michigan in was
the Fog that caused the start of the
race to be delayed by about 30 minutes.
Once it lifted they finally went racing
and spinning.

Jeff Gordon who started on the
pole was in position for a top five
before he was spun out by Matt Kenseth.
Gordon ends up in the saturated
frontstretch grass - stuck in the mud.

A late caution flag caused a
Green-White-Checker finish which proved
to be no problem whatsoever for Kurt
Busch who wins for the second time in 3
races and puts more distance between
himself and those chasing him for the
final spot in the Chase for the
