QUESTION: Is there any way citizens
can find out if a specific person has a

ANSWER: Yes, anyone can walk into
their court- clerks office and find out
if someone has a concealed carry permit
for that city or county ... the idea
though is that folks with ill
intentions probably won't walk into a
court building to do that... it's more
labor intensive than requesting the

CK-TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS



<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker 7 Forecast
Center. A large, strong ridge of high
pressure has prompted the return of
summer-like heat to begin the week.
Record highs were set in Roanoke,
Danville, Blacksburg and Bluefield
Monday afternoon. This same high
pressure will provide another
sweltering afternoon Tuesday, with some
record highs being challenged. A
strong cold front enters the area late
Tuesday into Wednesday. We're not
anticipating anything more than a few


isolated showers as it passes through.
The winds will also increase a bit. The
main story with this front will be
sharply cooler temperatures by Thursday
and Friday. Highs will barely make it
into the upper 60s to near 70. We'll
also monitor and upper level low coming
out of the Great Lakes by the end of
the week. This may provide another
opportunity for showers in the western
mountains. MONDAY NIGHT: Partly
cloudy and mild. Low: 65 TUESDAY: Sun
and clouds. Still hot. High: 91
TUESDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds.
Isolated shower. Low: 60 >>

Championship began it's 2 Day run at

The Floyd County Buffalos were
back to defend their State Title that
they won a season ago and were the
favorites to make it 2 straight.

*CG locator Botetourt Co.


There were 7 other teams playing
the Par 71 Layout though that would
have a say in who took home the title.


The other 7 are going to have a
lot of catching up to do in Round 2.
The Buffalos shot a 293 as a team and
lead the overall standings by 29
strokes over Castlewood and Randolph
Henry.


Leading the way for the team is
Senior Jessica Hollandsworth - who
confirmed to News 7 lastnight that she
is headed to the University of Maryland
- shot a 3 under par round of 68 that
also has her in the lead of the
individual Standings by 4 shots over
James River's Josh Walton.


Glenvar's Scott Obehshain drained
this biridie putt on his 18th Hole to
shoot 76 and is in position to earn a
spot on the podium tomorrow. But
everyone is chasing Floyd County and
Hollandsworth.

Hall underwent successful surgery on
his broken left wrist last night. In
many ways that was the easy part.


Hall has started 44 straight
games at Tech and was approaching the
school record for consecutive starts.


Dealing with the reality of not
being able to get on the field for a
month or longer will be the tough part.
