February 20 Nininger and Dupree were
driving separate S-U-V's through a
construction zone on Route 419 early on
the morning of February 20th.


Their vehicles crashed into a
backhoe, crushing worker Richard Slone


of Vinton.


Today, one of Slone's
co-workers said he was holding a stop
sign at the beginning of the
construction zone, saw two vehicles
driving fast toward him and he had to
move out of the way.


He turned around and saw the
S-U-V's hit the backhoe, spinning it
around and crushing Slone.

admitted he couldn't definitively say

Technology had advanced to hand-written

mstevens@wdbj7.com Welcome everyone to your Thursday
Ticker and Salem the City of Champions
will be bustling with athletic activity
all weekend long.


The City will be hosting both the
Division 3 Women's Lacrosse National
Championship as well as the Division 3


Softball World Series.


In addition to the college
events, the Level 4 Virginia State
Gymnastics championship is being held
at the Salem Civic Center.


Pulling off a triple play of this
nature takes a lot of coordination by
the folks running the tournaments.

*CG locator Grand Rapids, MI


Neil Sauter is walking on stilts
across the state, a total of more than
830 miles in just 20 days.


Sauter wants to raise ten thousand
dollars for cerebal palsy research.


It is a condition he has to deal with
himself.


It turns his legs inward which makes
walking on stilts all the more
difficult. He says he wants people who


hear about his long walk to know they
can rise above any challenges if they
just work hard enough.
