fatal construction zone accident have
been convicted of a D-U-I.


CHANNEL=C VO-NAT


VO-NAT Richard Slone of Vinton died on


the early morning of February 20th
while working in a work zone on Route
419 near Tanglewood Mall.


Prosecutors say Tracie Nininger
was drunk when she struck a backhoe,
which then hit Slone.


Almost immediately, Jeff Dupree
struck the rear of the Hummer with his
vehicle.


As a result, both are charged
with involuntary manslaughter.


News 7's Justin McLeod has more
from yesterday's preliminary hearing.

Jeanette Brown/Chatham Resident:
"Ours has been fine. We haven't
noticed any change in the color or in
the taste."


But there is a problem at the
source.


Water inside Chatham's filtration
plant is showing high levels of a mud,
chemicals, and other contaminates.


Mike Jones/Chatham Town Manager:


"It all started with a bunch of clouds
and a big rain storm."


Nats of creek


That caused the creek that
Chatham pulls its water from to fill up
with debris and everything else that
washes down during a storm.


They shut down their water plant
Monday to clean it all out.


But the contamination is still
there - town officials believe it may
be coming from fertilizers.


Jones: "It's unknown at this
time, but we're not letting that
unknown get into the system."


As for what's going out to
customers.


Jones: "The water that comes out
of their taps is safe to drink. I've
drank it and not thought twice about
it."


This situation has affected some
local businesses. Until they get the
water straightened out, every
laundromat and car wash is shut down.


Jones: "We're sorry we have to do
that, because we understand the
economic impact, but the owners have
been universally supportive of what the


town's doing."


Residents are supportive too.


Brown: "I know they'll fix it.
Whatever needs to be done, they'll fix
it."


And get the water flowing

(END SOT) The focus of China's massive operation


has shifted from hunting for survivors


to dealing with the dead.



Columns of soldiers have finally inched
into ALL the isolated areas hit worst


by Monday's earthquake....and the
devastation is as bad as feared.



(nats)


There are still handfuls of victims
being found alive. This boy was barely


hanging on after 80 hours entombed
beneath his collapsed school. The
first


thing he did was ask for a soda...



(nats)...


But hope is running out many more
survivors will be found. The damaged
area


is so wide-spread that the rescue
efforts of man and machine are
stretched


very thin. Even when crews do detect
life, sometimes there's nothing that


can be done.



(SOT font late DAVID FORAKER/AID


WORKER):


"WE FOUND A GUY TAPPING DEEP DOWN. HE
WAS PROBABLY 30, 40 FEET DOWN, AND WE


JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE RESOURCES TO GET
HIM OUT."



Chinese President Hu Jintao toured the
hardest-hit region as the first


international aid workers arrived.
China was initially slow to accept
foreign


help but changed their mind as the
scale and scope of the disaster became


clear.



(nats)


So far disease hasn't been a problem -


but it's an enormous concern. There


are corpses everywhere. As fast as
burial pits can be dug, they're filled.



The search for food, water and safety
has triggered mass migrations from
rural


areas to towns and cities.....Millions
living under tents or nothing at all,


either homeless....or too terrified to
go indoors.

TBD - US help with satellite

:00 Randall Lee Smith died in police
custody over the weekend.


Authories say he shot two men
after gaining their trust last Tuesday
night.


Smith served 15 years for killing
two people in the same area back in
19-81.


Many in Giles County, including
investigators, are now left wondering
if Smith had more victims they don't
know about.


Radford University Criminal


Justice professor Doctor Tod Burke says
it's unlikely Smith was a serial
killer.


Neighbors described Smith a local

serving time for murder.

Bruce Edwards was hired as WDBJ's first

80s, a then "young" Robin Reed became a
permanant fixture on the daily

Technology had advanced to hand-written

WDBJ became the first station with a

Carroll Stone founded Sunshine
Tours 27 years ago and has organized
thousands of trips.


One of the more popular
destinations is just a short drive away
- Mt. Airy, North Carolina or Mayberry
to Andy fans.


For two people the trip costs
90-dollars and that includes lunch and
tour guide services.


That's not much more than a tank
of gas.


With fuel costs at all-time
highs... significantly higher than in
Andy's days in Mayberry... Stone says
more people are choosing bus tours like
this one.
