OQ=Tim Saunders, News 7, Lynchburg << Macel Falwell prefers to remember
(END SOT) the good times with her husband, but


she knows not everyone looks back on
her husband fondly.


"I knew people were going to say
things and I just sort of forgot it and
never talked about it at all."


But nearly a year after her
husband's death, she is talking.


Writing her thoughts down for the
first time in a book called "Jerry
Falwell, his Life and Legacy."


"I had always wanted to write a
book, but I never had the nerve to do
it. I used to say Jerry, I'd like to
write a book and he'd say you should go
ahead and do it and I wouldn't do it."


Falwell says she wants to help
others see a side of her husband they
may have missed.


She talks about her husband's
political life, and his role as founder
of the Moral Majority.


INSERT BOARD ONE


"Although the media painted him
as an extremist, that was never true,"
she writes.


"Jerry was a moderate in all
things, including his political views."


END BOARD ONE


She also talks about the threats
her family faced, sharing her feelings
about bomb scares and plots to kidnap
her children.


INSERT BOARD TWO


"Jerry refused to let the
escalating attacks deter him," she says
, "Instead he chose to laugh about it.
I trembled for hours."


END BOARD TWO


The book was an idea of Falwell's
son, Jonathan.


He urged his mother to write down
her memories.


"A lot of the stories in the
book, literally, I had never even heard
before. Things that happened back when
they were dating and even before they
had become an item so to speak."


From Falwell's trouble with the
Securities and Exchange Commission to
his role following the PTL Scandal,


Macel's thoughts are all there.


But so are her memories of going
back to college at Jerry's insistence -
and even bungee jumping with her late
husband.


"I think they will understand
that Jerry is not the Jerry they read
about in the paper."


"He just made everything happen
for anybody and everybody."


A memory she's hoping will live
on - in her words.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A ridge of high pressure
overhead will help keep skies clear and
winds light overnight. Lows will drop
to the low 40s. Clouds increase
Wednesday from west to east as the high
moves offshore. By Thursday, a cold
front and low pressure system increase
the shower chances to 50%. Could see a
rumble of thunder as well. The front
gets pushed offshore Friday, with a few
lingering showers possible. Saturday is
quiet before our next shower-maker
arrives Sunday. Doesn't look like any
of these storms will bring a lot of
rain. They should be fast-movers. For

One of those featured William and
Mary as the Tribe paid a visit to
Blacksburg this afternoon.

Tribe vs. Hokies This time of year you rarely get
a great pitching effort, so you better
have some solid defense.


Tech's Jose Cueto will show some
nice glove action in left field as he
comes up with nice snag looking into
the sun of this wind blown shot by Greg
Maliniack on the warning track.


This game would feature 28 hits
and 15 runs. Austin Wates' bloop


single will be just enough to get Sean
Ryan home. The Hokies beat the Tribe
10 and 5.


They will take tomorrow off and
then host Duke on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday to close out the season.

Keys vs. Avalanche Some future Avalanche players :00 were taking some cuts of their own
during the game - getting themselves
limbered up.


Game was tied at 1-all in the
sixth and here comes the Salem defense


as pitcher Christopher Salamida gets
off the hill, tracks down the
dribbler, and flips it to catcher Koby
Clemens, who tags out Christopher
Vinyard out at home.


The Avs would defense would hold
down the fort long enough to get the
win. Robert Andrews flies *CG final Frederick out to center fielder Jordan Parraz. 1 Salem wins it 2 to 1 in 10 innings - Salem game three of four game set is tomorrow 2 night at 7.

Monday Night In the second inning of the :00 team's 6-to-nothing win in the series
opener - Nick Moresi was hit in the
left arm and hand area by this pitch
from the Keys' Brandon Erbe.


He tried to shake it off, stayed
in the game and later scored in the
inning. But he sat out the rest of the

John Katz x-rays show he has a hairline
fracture and will have to have furhter
