swinging wildly.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng index dropped
2-and-a-half percent while the Shanghai
market fell to its lowest mark since
June before rebounding and by days end
finishing UP.



It's a typical trading day where the
only sure thing is volatility. And
they're taking their cues from Wall

(nats)


Tuesday's feel-good rally quickly lost
its luster after the Dow dropped more
than 200 points yesterday. The Federal
Reserve had hoped it's bold rate cut
could settle market fears.



(SOT WILLIAM CHENEY/JOHN HANCOCK


FINANCIAL SERVICES): "THIS IS A LARGE
MOVE BY HISTORICAL STANDARDS. THE FED
DOESN'T OFTEN MOVE THAT MUCH. AND EVEN
THOUGH SOME PEOPLE WERE HOPING FOR
MORE, IT'S STILL A LOT."



Since October, the Fed has now cut its
benchmark rate 3 full points. From
5-and-a-quarter to 2-and-a-quarter as
it tries to make more money available


at cheaper rates to banks increasingly
afraid to lend.



It's not the ups and downs of the
market that have people concerned. It's
the uncertainty that big banks remain
vulnerable to a credit crisis like the
one that sank Bear Stearns....and that
THEIR nest-egg could be next.

<< Good morning, I'm meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. High pressure builds in today
with increasing sunshine but we will
keep a gusty west wind around through
the afternoon. THURSDAY: Sunny and
breezy. Winds will relax by the end of


the day, but most of Thursday will be
highlighted by northwesterly winds at
15-25mph with gusts near 40mph.
Afternoon highs are forecast in the mid
50s. Thursday night will be clear and
chilly with lows in the lower 30s.
FRIDAY: The first full day of spring
will feature mostly sunny with highs in
the low and mid 60s. Winds will be
light from the southwest. YOUR

feature more clouds than sunshine.
Models are hinting at a 20-30% chance
of a few light showers; but most of the

bring no weather-worries with mainly

As you listen to candidates for

issues facing this city are just as
diverse as any other.


Tom Shahady: "We've really got to
look at the environment in Lynchburg
and really consider how we're going to
develop it in the future."


Ceasor Johnson: "Growth, it's
absolutely growth. That's the main,
biggest thing that's happening. We're
bustling on every end."


For some, this year's race is
about moving forward - while keeping
things the way they are.


Mike Gillette: "This is about
maintaining Lynchburg as a high quality
place to live. Good schools, good
quality of life, good economic
development."


Others are putting their focus on
education


Marie Waller: "Maintain our
schools as excellent as they are. Keep
that up."


And that includes getting
residents trained for work


Nat Marshall: "We can't attract
companies, can't build companies, if
you don't have a ready workforce that's
able to come in and do the jobs." The
candidates featured in this story were
taking part in a forum sponsored by the
city's Democratic Committee.


All but one of the candidates
running in the May election was asked
to attend.


Ward Three incumbent Jeff
Helgeson was not invited because he's
running as a Republican.


All of the other candidates
running are independents, but four of
the five who spoke walked away with an
endorsement from the Democrats.

could settle market fears.



(SOT WILLIAM CHENEY/JOHN HANCOCK


FINANCIAL SERVICES): "THIS IS A LARGE
MOVE BY HISTORICAL STANDARDS. THE FED
DOESN'T OFTEN MOVE THAT MUCH. AND EVEN
THOUGH SOME PEOPLE WERE HOPING FOR
MORE, IT'S STILL A LOT."



Since October, the Fed has now cut its
benchmark rate 3 full points. From
5-and-a-quarter to 2-and-a-quarter as
it tries to make more money available
at cheaper rates to banks increasingly
afraid to lend.



It's not the ups and downs of the
market that have people concerned. It's
the uncertainty that big banks remain
vulnerable to a credit crisis like the
one that sank Bear Stearns....and that
THEIR nest-egg could be next.

Things are certainly looking up for the
roofing industry. Especially when winds
in southwest Virginia seem to be
getting stronger. Bill Whitaker with
Vinton Roofing has been running
non-stop over the past several months,
replacing missing shingles. Most from
older roofs that couldn't stand the
brunt of nearly tropical storm force
winds.



Winds have increased so much lately,
parts of Virginia and North Carolina
have now been considered High Wind
Catastrophe Areas.



This is important when you're
putting on a new roof. Most insurance
companies no longer cover the old 20-yr
shingle that only had a 48 mph wind
rating. And their reconsidering the
25-year 3-tab shingle that has a 60mph
wind rating. This is why many
homeowners are putting on the new
architectual shingles which are built
to last. Their wind rating? 110mph>>



RUNS=1:12 (END SOT)


OQ=...Meteorologist Brent Watts.



LEO IN WEATHER CENTER LEO ON CAMERA


Getting the better shingles will
cost you.


Architectural shingles cost about
25 to 35 dollars more per square than
the 3-tab shingles.


But it may save you money in the
long run.


The longer you wait to have your
roof repaired the better chance you'll
have leeks.


If you have damage, before you
call your homeowner's insurance agent,


call the roofing company FIRST.


The insurance company will likely
want an estimate, and by getting on the
waiting list you'll get the work done
sooner.
