February 14 Officer Daniel Meyer faces a
felony charge of unlawful wounding.


It was Valentine's Day, just
eight weeks ago -- Meyer shot
17-year-old Josh Brown -- as he ran
from a traffic stop.


It happened near Maryland Avenue
in Northwest Roanoke.


When Meyer ordered Brown to show
his hands and get on the ground- police
say the boy instead lowered his hands
out of the officer's sight. Officer
Myer fired once.


They found no weapon on Brown.


The Police Department conducted
its investigation... and handed it over
to the Commonwealth's Attorney, who
presented it to the Grand Jury on
Monday.

The Montgomery County site will
be used to move containers off tractor
trailers onto trains and the other way
around.


Freight moved by rail will travel
to Norfolk or the midwest... cutting
hours off delivery times.


Rail officials say the 65- acre
facility will attract new businesses to
the region and generate millions of
dollars in revenue for the county.


Four homes and a farm will be
displaced by the project...


Construction is still a ways off.
Norfolk Southern must get permits and
do more studies before breaking ground.


Governor Kaine is asking local
leaders to support the project.

CK/TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS AND MORE


<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. We started Monday with a bit
of fog and drizzle along the mountains,
then overcast skies throughout the day
for everyone. The easterly wind
component will keep the cool air wedge
locked in place, with afternoon highs
only reaching the upper 50s today and
Tuesday. By Wednesday, clouds may lift
enough to see a brief period of
sunshine, this may help temperatures to
climb into the mid 60s. It looks like
by Thursday we'll notice this wedge
breaking, leading to increasing


sunshine. A warm front will also pass
north, this means afternoon highs will
soar well into the 70s. A big
difference from how we started the
week. Friday will feature increasing
clouds and a slight chance of showers
as a cold front approaches. High will
remain warm (upper 70s) with overcast
skies. As the cold front pushes east,
it looks like the best chance of
showers and storms will be Saturday
(40%) with highs in the 70s. Things
cool down Sunday with highs barely
reaching For weather anytime turn to

CBS Sports-NCAA would have to get through a
Kansas team that buried Carolina in the
semi-finals and one that last won a
national championship 20 years ago when
assistant coach Danny Manning was the
star.


Memphis was favored by two and
the Tigers had their moments in the
first 20 minutes as Joey Dorsey get the
jam off the steal.


But for the most part Memphis was
too erratic. Derek Rose got only four
shots and had just three points at the
break.


And that wasn't enough as Kansas
led the game 33-to-28 at the halftime
break.


But Memphis came out rolling to
open the second 20 minutes and quickly
got right back in the game.


And a game it was in the final
half as the two teams stayed within a
point of two of each other until
Memphis started to get a working margin
around the six minute mark - thanks to
Rose, who started to domnate on the
Memphis end of the floor.


But give it to Kansas - the
Jayhawks kept fighting back and Memphis
missed some big free throws late. That
allowed Mario Chalmers to hit this
three pointer with two second to go to
send the game at overtime tied at
63-all.


Kansas erased a nine point


Memphis lead in two *CG final Kansas minutes and then owned the overtime.

VO-NAT A new survey found airlines


received the most complaints ever in
2007 - as they raised fares, fees and
cut back on passenger amenities.


Topping the performance list this
year were low-cost carrieres such as
AIRTRAN, JETBLUE, and SOUTHWEST.


Record fuel costs are putting
many carriers in danger of bankrupcy -
And experts say the airlines and their
passengers will have to weather even
more turbulance ahead.
