Four days before Virginians get
their say in the Presidential
primaries, the latest poll identifies
Obama and McCain as the clear front
runners.

KEITH 2-SHOT KEITH 2-SHOT


No big surprise there... except
that Barack Obama leads Hillary Clinton
with a three-to-two margin in Virginia,
and John McCain commands a majority-
-now that Mitt Romney's out of the
race.


Here's a quick look at the
numbers from NEWS-7's exclusive
overnight poll of Virginia voters.




CHANNEL=B VO-NAT


VO-NAT KEITH READS

KEITH READS Obama enjoys a 20-point lead over
Clinton... 59-percent to Clinton's
39-percent.


Among White voters, the race for
the Democratic nomination in Virginia
is a dead even tie.


Obama takes the Black vote by a
seven-to-one margin. More men favor
Obama than women, two-to-one.


Clinton has an edge among voters


over 65 and those in this part of the
state, while Obama polls well in the
more populated areas... especially
Tidewater.


Democratic leaders are very aware
of gap between Obama and Clinton.

January 18 Students have missed three days
this school year because of this: snow
and snow- covered roads.


Those days were going to be made
up next Friday and two days in March.


BUT school officials tell News 7
the state will now allow schools to use
"banked days" before going to make up
days.


Roanoke County has three-..
therefore students will not have to go
to school on those makeup days...
UNLESS they have more snow days.

Roanoke City- the extended day there
already allows for snow days.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The jet stream is in an active
pattern with several disturbances
racing through over the weekend. The
first piece of energy will arrive early
Saturday. Most hometowns will only


notice increasing clouds, but a few
mountain areas may see some light snow
showers with little accumulation. A
stronger disturbance rolls in Saturday
night dragging a cold front behind it.
Light snow showers are possible (20%)
late Saturday afternoon and evening.
Again, not much moisture, but the wind
and colder air is a different story.
Latest models are indicating winds as
high as 60mph in the mountains and
45mph elsewhere starting late Saturday
night and throughout Sunday. Colder air
will also rush in, with highs only
managing low 40s Sunday afternoon and
lows in the 20s. After the brief cold
spell, temperatures begin moderating
early in the week with partly sunny
skies as high pressure remains in
control. FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy,
passing sprinkles. Low: 34 SATURDAY:
Variably cloudy, turning windy. Low: 55
SATUDAY NIGHT: Flurries, very windy.
Low: 36 SUNDAY: Windy, much colder.
High: 45 For weather anytime turn to

Friday Football Extra The folks at Northside high
school announced this afternoon that
the football field at the school will
be named in honor of the program's
winningest coach - Jim Hickam.


The official ceremony will take
place at the first home game of the
season in September.


Hickam coached 406 games in his


career, 84 of them at Pulaski and the
rest at Northside.


In December of 2005, Hickam and
the school parted on less than ideals
terms, but time does have a way of
healing things - and this is a much
deserved honor for one of Friday
Football Extra's all-time greats.


Hickam, coached 31 years at
Northside. He will turn 67 this May.
