language.

Nats ad "It's 3 am and your children
are safe and asleep, but there's a

ringing in the White House."



:53-1:04 Standup (Susan
Roberts/Washington D.C.): As this ad
war escalates,


polls show tight races in both Texas
and Ohio. If Clinton loses in Texas,
her


camp is already hinting at a possible
challenge to the state's voting rules.



Their objection concerns the two step
voting process..with both a primary and


caucuses.. A system - they say - lacks
clarity in a state expecting more than


3-million voters.



(NATS MCCAIN)



John McCain is also keeping up the pace


in Texas and continuing his jabs at


Obama...saying the democrats are in
denial over the status of the war in
Iraq.



1:25-:127 - QUICK (John McCain/(R)
Presidential Candidate): "THIS SURGE IS


SUCCEEDING."



When voters have their say in the
Tuesday primaries...it will be exactly
eight


months before that Tuesday in
November, when America chooses its next
leader.

regional basketball finals night when
Friday Football Extra news overpowers
the roundball, but that's the case on
this Friday.


GRAPHIC=STEVE RAGSDALE News 7 Sports has learned that


Steve Ragsdale is stepping down after
serving the last 30 years as the head
football coach at Giles.


The southwest Virginia coaching
icon told News 7 Sports tonight that he
had been considering retiring for the
past five years. This past year he
marked two big milestones - his 30th
years in coaching and his 250th career
win.

Friday Football Extra Ragsdale will be 57 in May and he :00 began coaching basketball at Giles 33
years ago. He transitioned from the
hardwood to the football field three
decades ago and as they say - the rest
is history.


In 30 years his teams have won


254 games, three state championships
and 8 regional titles along with 13 of
the last 16 district championships.


Ragsdale will continue to teach
at the high school - but its the
lessons he's taught 100s of young been
since 1975 on the field that will
ensure his legacy.


All of us at Friday Football
Extra wish him the best.
