quake for

15 minutes.

GREAT DEAL OF PANIC IN THE BUILDING.

VIOLENTLY INDEED.



(GRAFIQUE)



The powerful underwater quake had a

magnitude of 8.2...and the epicenter
was

south of the Indonesian island of
Sumatra.

It immediately triggered fears of
another deadly tsunami, like the Asian

tsunami in 2004 that killed more than
230 thousand people in a dozen

countries.



Within minutes, Indonesia, Malaysia and
Sri Lanka sent out a tsunami warnings.

People were told to stay away from the

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.

The Avs needed two wins a in a row to
win the title, but it was the Keys who

got things going in a hurry.

Top of the second .. Frederick's Mark
Fleisher will knock one over the left
field fence, and it's one-to-nothing.

It stayed that way until the top of
fifth, when the Keys' Brent Krause
doubles to center.

The R-B-I makes it 2-to-0 game.

Same inning .. Kennard Jones will lace
a line drive to left field and it's 3-
oh.
*CG final Frederick
5 Frederick wins the Carolina League Salem title, beating Salem 5 to 1 and taking 1 the series 3 games to one.
KEYS WIN SERIES 3 - 1
