they know it?

That's what many have been
asking ever since a Roanoke school had
to be shut down because of rat
infestation.

News 7's Justin McLeod has
uncovered new details. Justin what
have you learned?

Natasha, we received a number of
documents through the Freedom of
Information Act.

OQ=what would you have it at school? <<((NAT SOUND OF TEACHER SAYING "THANKS


FOR BEING PATIENT"))

Patience is a good way to put it,
since students have been uprooted after
a rat infestation at Fairview
Elementary.

Parents say it's been a problem for
years now.

SOT FULL



TAMIKA HORACE/PARENT: LAST YEAR MY SON
HE HAD A RAT IN HIS CLASSROOM, IT WAS
DEAD IN THE WALLS AND THE SMELL WAS SO
BAD.

(END SOT)



And that's not the only incident.

Memos provided by the school system
reveal during 2006, a teacher turned in
14 bottles of glue with the tops eaten
off of them. During that same year,
"one rat ran across a room during SOL
testing. That same memo indicates the
rats are now being noticed regulary by

students.

In another undated memo, many
teachers hear several large animals
running through the ceiling during
school hours.

We shared this information with school
board chairman David Carson.

SOT FULL



JUSTIN MCLEOD: I THINK IT'S A FAIR
QUESTION, DID SOMEONE DROP THE BALL
HERE?

DAVID CARSON: CLEARLY.

(END SOT)



That's because the problem continued
into 2007.

For example, the principal reported
she pulled a large rat out of a trap at
the beginning of summer school.

By August, someone complained to the
Health Department. An inspection found
droppings, and several dead rats had
been recovered from the ceiling because
of poison that had been laid out.

During a followup visit last week,
inspectors found large number of rodent
droppings under cooking equipment.

They also found droppings under a
work table, in the dishwashing room,
and under an ice cream freezer.


SOT FULL



JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: CAN WE BE
REASSURED THAT PEOPLE WILL BE HELD
ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS?

DAVID CARSON: ABSOLUTELY.

(END SOT)



Parents expect it. Many are
surprised none of their children got
sick because of the rats.

SOT FULL



ASHLY GORDON/PARENT: THEY HAVE TO
PLAY, DO THEIR WORK. YOU WOULDN'T HAVE
IT AT HOME, WHY WOULD YOU HAVE IT AT
SCHOOL?

(END SOT)>>



LIVE=Justin Full LIVE FULL



We also have a memo from a
teacher pleading with the school system
in 2006 to take care of the rodents.

In it the teacher says quote I
pray everyday that a little one or a
big one does not run out in the
daytime.

DOUBLE BOXES=Plasma Screen DOUBLE BOXES



Natasha, the memo indicates the
teacher's husband wanted her to
transfer to another school because of
the rodents.

Justin, I am curious were

exterminators ever called in to
Fairview?

They were Natasha, but apparently
is the center of controversy right now
and we'll have more on that tonight at
11.

that were made in China...

VO-NAT It's the third recall this


summer.

The latest one is for 844
thousand toys that contain excessive
levels of lead paint.

It involves three Fisher Price
Brand toys and various Barbie accessory
toys, but not the Barbie dolls
themselves.

Mattel has issued an apology to
consumers...and the toymaker says it
has spent more than 50 thousand hours
investigating its vendors and testing
its toys leading to the new recall.

Developmental pediatrician Dr.
Kathryn Kerkering Cur-Cur-ing says if
parents notice their children *have*
the tainted toys or are concerned they
should contact their local doctor.

Unless it's a severe, extended
case of lead exposure -children usually

don't have any symptoms, but in extreme
cases exposure can be deadly and cause
brain damage.

Dr. Kerkering warns that children
under five are especially vulnerable
because there's major brain development
during those years and children are
prone to putting things in their mouth.

CK/TITAN TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS



< will keep our skies mostly clear for
the rest of the week. Overnight lows
will generally be comfortable in the
low to mid 60s, however, heat and
humidity will continue Thursday and
Friday afternoon as highs top out near
90. The weekend is looking like a
split-decision with partly sunny skies
Saturday, but tropical rains "could"
move in by Sunday. An area of low
pressure several hundred miles off the
southeastern U.S. could make a move
toward the coastal Carolinas late in
the weekend. Also, an approaching front
may interact with this tropical
feature. We'll welcome the rain (if we
get it) because some of us are nearly
10" below average for the year. Stay
tuned as we watch the tropics.>>

The Cavs are heavily favored by
17 points or more to get themselves
back on track this weekend as they host
lowly Duke at Scott Stadium.

The game is the home opener for
the Cavs and you can catch the Noon

kickoff right here on My Network TV -
our digital channel 7-too.

That's the Hoos and the Blue
Devils - Saturday at Noon.

GRAPHIC=iPod Apple is revamping its iPod...



ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT The company made the announcement



earlier today.

The new models include an iPod
Nano with a two and a half in screen
for watching movies and playing games.

The new Nano should be in stores
starting this weekend.

Apple also announced a new
version of its iPhone, which was
unveiled earlier this summer.

The company has already sold more
than 100 million iPods, but sales have
been drifting since last year's holiday
shopping season and profit margins are
shrinking.
