OQ=Tim Saunders, News 7, Bedford. << The doors are locked and the
(END SOT) lamps out front have been dark for


years - but Bedford natives like Betty
Gereau remember when the old yellow
building was an exciting place to be.


Betty Gereau: "It was the first
public high school, built in 1912. And
it was a significant landmark at that
point."


And it remains a landmark today.


One the city wants to maintain -
with some help from the public.


They're putting out a request for
proposals, asking anyone with a eye for
re-development to check the school out.


Bart Warner: "There have been
several proposals over the last 5 or 6
years. Everything from residential
usage, to use by the community
college."


None of those ideas panned out.


That's why the city is changing
its tactics, even thinking about
selling the property.


"We're optimistic about finding
the right person or entity who can make
use of it."


It may look rough on the outside,
but city officials say this building is
structurally sound. It may take time
to clean out all the junk inside, but
the city doesn't think renovations
would take very long.


"I think the challenge will be in
finding the right user and owner for
that particular structure itself."


The building is listed in the
National Register of Historic Places,
so it qualifies for tax credits.


Gereau thinks incentives like
that will attract developers.


"It really could be put to good
use, adaptively re-used, for many
things."


Just what that use will be is now
up to the public.

gkittelson@wdbj7.com The Virginia Cavaliers finished
tied for First in the A-C-C last season
and went to the N-C-A-A Tournament.


The Wahoo's no doubt expected to
be back in the field of 65 this season.


Unfortunately U-V-A didn't end up
in the Big Dance, they instead got
passed over for the N-I-T and had to
settle with playing in the first ever
College Basketball Invitational taking
on the University of Richmond as part
of the 16 team Tournament.

FSN This could possibly be the last
game that you see Sean Singletary
sporting the blue and orange.


The Cavaliers trailed by 2 at
halftime and saw that defict grow to
double digits as the Spiders were
bombing from Deep with their big Man
Dan Geriot, he scored 22 on the Night.


But the Cavaliers closed the game
on a 15 to 3 Run, that included Adrian
Joseph's 3-pointer, his only basket
from the field, that Got U-V-A within 1
at 64 to 63.


Then Sean Singletary *CG final Richmond would drive to the basket and get the 64 bucket to go, that gave U-V-A the lead Virginia and they would hang on for the 66 to 64 66 win over Richmond, they will play Old
Dominion in the next round of the
C-B-I.

a game against Virginia Tech at English

*CG locator Blacksburg

YES Network The Hokie Players gathered
together for a moment before taking the
field to take on the Pin-Stripes.


Top of the first Hokie Pitcher
Andrew Wells loaded the bases thanks to
some walks, but he would get Alex
Rodriguez to fly out to right field.
That would score Johnny Damon on the
Sacrifice Fly.


The Hokies avoided any further
damage with a pretty double play that
was started by Matt Hacker at Second
Base, the throw on to get Jason Giambi
at first to end the inning.


The Yankees would get 3 more runs
in the Top of the Second, one of those
came from Derek Jeter with the Bases
Loaded, he hits one to short, a tough
one to handle, they give him a hit on
that,


The Yanks other superstar on that


side of the infield, Alex Rodriguez,
once he was taken out of the game took
a seat in the Virginia Tech Dugout and
signed autographs while no doubt
imparting some baseball wisdom.


The Hokies didn't muster much
offense, which was probably expected. *CG final New York But they continued to flash some 11 leather. Jose Cueto, laying out to rob Virginia Tech Wilson Betimit. But the Yankees win 0 the game 11 to nothing overr Virginia
Tech.

on inside the courtroom secret was
rejected.


The Judge revealed 58-pages of
courtroom drama -- in which he calls
Mills, who acted as her OWN lawyer,
'inconsistent, inaccurate, less than
candid and less than impressive."


Before and after pictures of her
now ex-husband, Sir Paul McCartney's
