Less than half an hour ago,
legislators voted to extend the session
until midnight on Tuesday.


That gives budget negotiators
nearly three extra days to hammer out
differences on the state's 78- billion


dollar, two- year spending plan.


Differences over education and
public safety funding have been
resolved....

hdavis@wdbj7.com The words "mentally retarded" may
soon be erased from Virginia law.


Legislators approved legislation
that replaces the words in law books
with the words "intellectually
disabled".


Advocates say the word "retarded"
hurts the self esteem of those with
mental disabilities.


It's estimated the change would


cost the state 75- thousand dollars.


The legislature must pass the
bill again next year before it will be
sent to Governor Kaine for

Hollins Environmental Studies Professor
Renne Godard says the new schedule for
Daylight saving time was based on
energy studies from the 70s.. More
recent reports don't indicate a
decrease... but an increase in energy
consumption.

But for farmers like Ned Jeter--
getting up early in the morning is a
way of life. Feeding his cattle
usually takes about half his day.



7:42-50 clip 10 IT FORCES YOU TO GET UP
EARLIER IN THE MORNING AND GET STARTED
EARLIER AND ALLOWS YOU TO HAVE THAT
EXTRA TIME HOUR IN THE AFTERNOON WHERE
IT'S WARMER, NICE AND BETTER TO WORK..



A concept perhaps everyone just needs a
little time to get used to.

Center. Slow clearing is expected
overnight with cold temperatures in the
20s. Wind chill values in the single
digits are likely by early Sunday
morning thanks to a busy west wind.
Overall, winds will begin to diminish
after midnight as low pressure races
toward southeastern Canada.


Sunday will be sunny and pleasant with
high pressure building in from the
Tennessee River Valley. Highs will be
below average for this time of year -
around 50 degrees.


A quick clipper heads out of the
Central Plains Monday, possibly
bringing a few snow showers to the
Highlands, but just partly sunny skies
for the rest of the NEWS7 viewing area.
Highs are forecast in the low and mid
50s.


Most of next week (Monday through
Thursday) is expected to be mostly to
partly sunny. Midweek temperatures warm
to around 60. Our next chance of rain
comes Friday, with a southern batch of
moisture trying to head in our
direction. Right now, those showers
look to exit by Saturday.


Remember to turn your clocks FORWARD
(Spring Forward) ONE HOUR tonight
(before bedtime) for Daylight Saving

SATURDAY NIGHT: Gradual clearing,

Hidden Valley vs. Brookville The Bees beat Hidden Valley to :00 open the season way back on December
4th of last year.


But that night one of the Titans
big guns Abby Redick was out of the
Hidden Valley lineup with a sprained
ankle and there wasn't nearly as much
at stake.


Tonight, Redick made herself
right at home from the start as she
scored the first bucket of the game and
finished with 10 points - one of three


Titans in double figures.


The other key tonight for Hidden
Valley was its defense. Abby Oliver
gets the steal and goes coast to coast
for the hoop and the harm. Oliver
finished with a game high 19 points as
Hidden Valley jumped out to a
13-to-nothing lead.


The Titans had that double digit
lead for almost the entire game, but
Joyous Tharington helped slice it down
to nine in the fourth. She led the
Bees with 13. *CG final Hidden Valley

13 points and Hidden Valley beats
