Courtney Hatton is a freshman at
Virginia Tech-- but ALREADY her Hokie
Pride and care for her community has
been deeply planted



I THINK IT'S JUST GREAT TO GIVE BACK
TO THE COMMUNITY ESPECIALLY AFTER WHAT
HAPPEN LAST YEAR.



The "Big Event" is Virginia Tech's
largest community project--



EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK YOU CAN SEE
STUDENTS HELPING OUT, INFACT SINCE THE
BIG EVENT CAME TO VIRGINIA TECH IN
2002-- THE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS HAS
GROWN TO 3 THOUSAND.



Here at Harding Avenue Elementary-- 30
students are giving a helping hand.
Whether it be raking leaves or putting
on a fresh coat of paint--- no job is


too small and no task too tall.



IT IMPACTS PEOPLE'S LIVES EVERY DAY
AND NOT JUST TODAY BUT THROUGHOUT THE
YEAR AND THAT'S THE POINT TO GIVE BACK
ONE BIG DAY.. ONE BIG THANKS TO THE
COMMUNITY OF BLACKSBURG.



THEY'RE SUPPORT FOR US-- THEY CAME OUT
STRONG TO THE VIGIL LAST SPRING, I'M
SURE THEY'LL BE DOING THE SAME IN A
COUPLE OF WEEKS, IT'S GREAT TO GO HELP
THEM SINCE THEY WERE SUCH A SUPPORT TO
US.



By the end of the day-- students will


have completed more than 400
improvement projects--The founder of
the Big Event says this is JUST the
beginning of what's to come for the
Blacksburg community.



COLLEGE STUDENTS ACTUALLY DO GET OUT
AND HELP THE COMMUNITY--WE'RE NOT JUST
HERE TO MAKE A LOTTA NOISE IN TOWN AND
MAKE LONG LINES....BUT WE''RE HERE TO
HELP OUT AND BRING A STRONGER--GREATER
COMMUNITY.



And a show of their GROWING committment
to the entire Hokie Community. Sinu

(END SOT) Sectarian violence in Iraq took aim at


a well-respected Christian cleric on
Saturday. Gunmen used silencers in the
drive by shooting outside the priest's
new home where he and his wife had
recently moved to try to avoid danger.
The incident fueled Saturday's
democratic radio response:


11:07:12 "Iraq is still an incredibly
dangerous place."


In his radio address, Senator Joe
Biden, called last-year's U-S troop


surge, a failure.


11:06:25 "The purpose of the surge was
to bring violence in Iraq down so that
its leaders could come together
politically. Violence has come down,
but Iraqi leaders have not come
together."


Biden also said that President Bush has
no strategy for success and is just
biding his time until a new
administration takes over in November.


(nat)The relative calm following the
surge has disintegrated in the past few
weeks. Insurgents loyal to Muqtada al
Sadr have claimed responsibility for a
series of attacks that began in Basra
and are spreading throughout the
country.(nats)


At least four Iraqis died Saturday when
a bomb exploded on this minibus -
injuring more than a dozen people. And

insurgents, INSTEAD killed a family of
