Memos provided by the school system
reveal during 2006, a teacher turned in

"one rat ran across a room during SOL

testing. That same memo indicates the
rats are being noticed regulary by

during school hours.

OQ=clearly 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.

evidence of rodents have recently been
found at Preston Park and Raleigh Court
but the school system Natasha stresses

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The high temperature today in
Roanoke was 92 and the low was 62. A
persistent ridge of high pressure 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. Get the
latest weather forecast and radar

Groh might be right - but

patience when it comes to losing.

Groh is now in his 7th season at
his alma mater where he has won 42

Most UVA fans don't belive that's
enough to justify his $1 point 7
million dollar salary.

multiple concussions - that doctors say

Tests on Benoit's brain,
conducted by Julian Bailes of the
Sports Legacy Institute, show that
Benoit's brain was severely damaged and
that it resembled the brain of an 85
year old Alzheimer's patient.


Now, despite the results there is
no way to know for sure if Benoit's
concussions contributed to the
murder-suicide, but doctors say there
is no doubt the level of brain damage
Benoit had can cause depression and
irrational behavior.
