(END SOT) Lynchburg's Regional Airport, and


you'll see plenty of traffic coming in.


But the people behind Liberty
University's aviation program want to
see even more planes landing here.


Dave Young: "We see Lynchburg
airport and all the resources we have
available here as offering an
opportunity."


Young wants to use his program to
turn the airport into a regional hub
for everything from cargo planes to
recreational flights and air shows.


Ernie Rogers: "We're going to be
somewhat of a unique organization
within central Virginia that's going to
attract all of general aviation to come
here."


To do that, they're planning a
major expansion of Liberty's aviation
program.


Transforming it into a school of
aeronautics, and adding more than 150
students for programs that include
helicopter training and air traffic
control.


"That will all be an economic
boom, not only to the airport, but to
the vendors and the industry that
supports the airport."


The aviation industry's been on a
downturn the last few years, but here
at Liberty, they're expecting demand to
pick up for things like pilots and
mechanics. And that's why they're
trying to get more students in the
cockpit.


"There are a lot of opportunities
for graduates of those programs to go
out into the workforce and so we see us
being able to meet that demand."


And once those extra planes start


landing in Lynchburg.


"We'll have people in town who
are going to go to restaurants, stay in
hotels, that will help in the general
economy of Lynchburg." and help local
business take off.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A pleasant night is on tap,
with partly cloudy skies and lows in
the mid 50s. Maybe you'll sleep with
the windows open to enjoy the fresh
spring air?? Friday starts sunny with
a few afternoon clouds as temperatures
warm back into the 70s. There's a


chance of a few afternoon showers -
mainly after 2pm. Lows Friday night
will be near 60.


The weekend should offer variably
cloudy skies and shower chances as a
cold front approaches. Don't expect a
washout, but there are certainly
chances of rain this weekend, with
Saturday looking slightly wetter than
Sunday. Highs are forecast in the low
and mid 70s this weekend.

were plenty of fireworks early.


The Lancers would score in the
Top of the first, Ryan Washington a
Liberty High product will hit one to
centerfield. Camille Ketsdever will
score from second with the game's first
run.


Radford would answer in the
Bottom of the 3rd, Jennifer Everhart
will get a hard chopper through the
infield. Pinch runner Larissa Williams
scores the first run for the
Highlanders to tie the game up at
1-all.


The Next Batter, Cassie Rhodes
hits one into the Bermuda Triangle in
Left Center Field. It would drop, one
run scores and Everhart is looking to
make it 2, but she is tagged out at the
plate. Highlanders though would take
the lead.


Longwood Head Coach Kathy Riley
none to pleased with the umpiring *CG final Longwood in the inning, she made her opinion 1 known and got ejected for her troubles. Radford Radford wins game one 2 to 1 and then 2 takes game two 7 to 6. Those two wins RU WINS GAME TWO 7 TO 6 give RU 39 for the season - a new

Bruins vs. Titans Titans' senior Mikey O'Brien :00 pitched 6 scoreless no-hit innings. He
had yet to give up a run this season -
keeping his earned run average at a
ridiculous 0 point 0-0.


He got plenty of run support as
he helps his own cause with a shot
through the shortstop's legs. That's
enough to score Brett Mollenhauer to
make it 1-to-nothing Titans in the
first.


The Titans got another one in the
bottom of the second as junior second


baseman Scott Stilwell rips one deep
over the left field fence. The solo
shot make it 2-to-nothing.


Hidden Valley got four more runs
- this one in the third on Joe
Greenway's single to right as they
eventually led 6-to-nothing in the
seventh. *CG final Blacksburg

3 O'Brien would finally give up his Hidden Valley first runs of the season in the 6 seventh, but until then he was
unhittable as the Titans win it 6-to-3
over Blacksburg.

The jersey was secretly buried by
a Bronx construction worker who is a
Sox fan in an attempt to "curse" the
Yankees.


The David Ortiz jersey was
recovered and instead of throwing it
away - it was auctioned off for $175
thousand 100. All of the proceeds
benefit the Jimmy Fund - which has been
fighting cancer in kids and adults in


the Boston area since 1948.
