Roanoke's Fairview Elementary came to
light, many of you have been asking,
are rats common in schools?

In Roanoke, the answer is yes.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT Last week, we were first to tell


you the school system knew there was a
rat problem at Fairview as far back as
1999.

New documents obtained by News 7
show a recent inspection found evidence
of rats in 9 classrooms, the front

office, and the cafeteria.

The report goes on to say
droppings were found in mass
quantities.

OQ=them in schools SCHOOL ROLL



But in Roanoke City Schools it's

actually quite common.

Our research found in the last two
years, more than half of the city
school's had rats and mice, or evidence
of them.

Documents provided by the school
system show the extent of the problem.

END SCHOOL ROLL

Take William Fleming High School.

In October 2006- it appears rodents
are in the ceiling tiles and are eating
through.

The following month, 3 mice were
found in a trap.

By December, someone wrote "the mice
are just getting worse, please ask
exterminator to rush.

Across town at Patrick Henry, there
were a number of problems in the older
buildings.

In 2006 for example, rats were found
roaming around in the classrooms in old
McGuilkin Hall. Teachers even found
droppings on their desk.

The following year, 13 large and
small rats were caught in that same
building on one day alone.

Next door at Raleigh Court, someone
last January reported an animal in the

ceiling is moving around.

Last April, at Fallon Park Elementary
a large rat the size of a baby kitten
was found in the kitchen.

Nearby at Jackson Middle, someone
reports a rat as big as dog in 2006.

Some schools had an even bigger
problem. At Addison Middle for
example, mice and rats are found last
May throughout the whole building.

There was a similar infestation at
Lincoln Terrace back in 2006.

The school system insists these
problems were taken care of but you may
be asking yourself, aren't rats a
health risk? The simple answer is
yes.

ago.

Following a ceremony in a nearby park,
relatives stepped down into the pit

for what may be the last time before
this site is developed.

Relatives also remembered fallen heroes
at a New York City fire house.

(Maureen Santora / Mother of 9-11

"We think about Chris every day and the
hole in our heart will never, ever

disappear.

While the nation mourned, Al Qaeda
didn t miss a beat releasing another

Osama bin Laden recording to coincide
with the anniversary, and

warning the U.S. that the terror
threat remains.

But there has not been a coordinated
attack on American soil since 9-11

a point that wasn t forgotten in the
muddy Pennsylvania field where Flight

went down

09:45:30 (nats: horn at Pentagon)

or at the Pentagon memorial where 184
lives were lost.

09:39:30 (no super)

"We cannot touch our loved ones today,
those who were lost here, therefore we

ask God to hug them for us."

Even as progress is made toward
recovery and rebuilding relatives of
the

victims say there s still so much left
to heal.

Cassell appeared before a federal
judge this morning, saying he stood
there "in deep contrition."

"My life will never be the same,"
Cassell told Judge James Turk.

The retired sheriff was indicted
on Halloween last year, along with a
dozen of his deputies.

The government portrayed the case

as a major public corruption scandal.

In May, Cassell pled guilty to
one count of making a false statement.

Cassell and his attorneys had
been hoping for a sentence of home

Instead, he'll serve eight months
in prison and pay a 15-thousand dollar
fine.

GRAPHIC=AVS The Salem Avalanche faced a


do-or-die situation tonight in game
four of the Carolina League's Mills Cup
Championship series with Frederick.

The Avs needed a win tonight to
tie up the best three out of five
series at two games a piece.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT
VO-NAT







Big Chris Johnson led the Avs
onto the field tonight.

But the Keys were anxious to get
this thing over with in a hurry. Top
of the second - Frederick's Mark
Fleisher will groove this pitch over
the left field fence. The shot with
one out in the frame come off of Polin
Trinidad and makes it 1-to-nothing
Keys.

It stayed that way until the top
of fifth when Trinidad made a fielding
error and then gave up this Brent
Krause double to center. That poke

would chase home Pete Maestrales and
make it a 2-to-1 game.

Still in the fifth, Kennard Jones
will lace a line drive to left field
plating Krause and the Keys push their
advantage to 3-to-nothing after five.

Nothing came easy for the Avs in
this one. Mitch Einertson breaks his
bat and beats out the grounder on the
left side of the infield for a base
hit.

And the red hot Tim Torres also
blasted one off the wall in the second
inning - but both runners were stranded. *CG final Frederick
5 Frederick wins the Carolina Salem League title beating Salem 5 to 1 and 1 taking the series 3 games to one. The KEYS WINSERIES 3 TO 1 season that began way back on April 5th
ends five months later.

After getting whacked by Oklahoma

goback to veteran Kyle Wright as their
starting quarterback.


Wright is in his fifth year at
Miami and he is 14-7 as a Miami's
starter. He replaces Kirby Freeman who
struggled mightily in his first two
games this season. Miami's passing
offense is virtually dead last in the

It's a wheelstand invented by Dan

He made the device in the early

cerebral palsy.

It was helpful for kids with
spinal cord injuries and several years
later Davis began selling them.
