< didn t see coming. The 10-page


indictment says the home-run slugger
knowingly and willfully lied, under


oath,


about his use of anabolic steroids and
other performance enhancing substances.


The U-S Attorney s office claims Bonds
falsely told a federal grand jury that


he never knowingly took illegal drugs
from his personal trainer, Greg
Anderson


or that Anderson ever injected him
with steroids.




TRACK: Bonds lawyer, John Burris, is
surprised by the indictment, but says


There s been an effort to get Barry for
a long time. I m curious what evidence


they have now that they didn t have
before .



TRACK: The U-S Attorney s office says,
during the four-year criminal


investigation, evidence was obtained
including positive tests for the
presence


of steroids for Bonds and other
athletes. The 43-year-old has
repeatedly


denied ever knowingly using
performance-enhancing drugs, and his


tests by


Major League Baseball have never turned
up positive.



(NATSD OF HOME-RUN RECORD)



TRACK: In August, Bonds passed Hank
Aaron to become the career home-run


leader finishing the season with
762-long balls. Soon after, his team,
the


San Francisco Giants, released him. He
s now a free agent. The controversy


has long sparked debate over the
pressure to perform for athletes on
both


professional and amateur levels. Even
the White House weighed in Thursday


President Bush s spokesman saying this
is a sad day for baseball.

Last week, hundreds of dogs and

<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The high temperature today in
Roanoke was 63 but that is a little
misleading since it occurred at 2am.
Since then, the temperatures have
dropped drastically. Locally tonight, A
cold high pressure system will dominate
the region through Friday. This will
bring colder than average temperatures
and gusty northwest winds. Some gusts
may reach 40-50mph in the higher
elevations. Low temperatures will
tumble into the 30s tonight, with wind
chills in the 20s. Mountain snow
showers will also continue through the
night, with flurries elsewhere. These
will taper off as we go into Friday,
with increasing sunshine. The weekend
gets a touch warmer, with highs back
into the 50s by Saturday. A weak
clipper will bring a few more clouds
Sunday, but little else. Get the latest

VO-NAT From staffing to funding...


House Democrats pushed through a
50 billion dollar bill for the Iraq war
that would require President Bush to
start bringing troops home in coming
weeks with a goal of ending combat by
December next year.


The measure is unlikely to pass
in the Senate let alone overcome a
presidential veto.


Defense Secretary Robert
Gates argues if money to fund the war


doesn't come soon.... operations at
some Army bases could end by
mid-February.

According to transportation

Some longtime truckers have good
advice for drivers...one allow plenty
of space between your car and the
truck.


Also, if you have to pass a


truck, pass on the left, because the
blindspot makes it harder for truckers
to see you on right side.
