VO-NAT A Colorado prosecutor says new


D-N-A testing has cleared Jon Benet
Ramsey's family in her death.


The tests instead point to an
"unexplained third party."


Jon Benet was just six years old
when her body was found in the family's
home on Christmas Day 1996.


Her parents, John and Patsy
Ramsey, were long said to be under an
"umbrella of suspicion."


Prosectuors apologized to the


family today, saying, "To the extent
that this office has added to the
distress suffered by the Ramsey
family... I offer my deepest apology."


Authorities still don't have a
match on who committed the crime.


Patsy Ramsey did not live to see
the charges cleared. She died of
ovarian cancer two years ago.

*CG locator Amherst Co.


"The Bluest Water" is based on
the night of August 20th, 1969.


That's when Camille dumped 30
inches of rain in just 6 hours over


Nelson County, killing 153 people.


Amherst native Geoffrey Kershner
developed the play as an experience for
those who remember the storm - and
those who don't.


The story is fictional, but the
characters were created from interviews
done with actual survivors.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A cold front (or shall we say,
cool front) will approach the region
tonight and stall out over our area
Thursday. Numerous storms will develop
ahead of the front. Much like last
night, storms will begin to diminish
late this evening as temperatures fall.
Look for another muggy night with lows
in the 60s. Thursday, the front passes
just south of the area before stalling
and then falling apart. While storm
coverage should be minimal, it looks
like more clouds than sunshine for
sure. Highs will remain in the upper
80s. For weather anytime turn to our

Bobby Abreu was the hero. First
in the ninth inning Abreu will do a

the game tied at one.


The in the 10th Abreu fouled off
four straight fastballs *CG final Tampa Bay from Grant Balfour before doubling 1 home Derek Jeter from first by lining a New York changeup into the gap in right-center. 2 New York wins it 2-to-1 in 10 innings.

mstevens@wdbj7.com Tony is expected to announce that
he has purchased majority ownership in
the fledgling Haas-CNC two-car team
with the official annoumcement coming
tomorrow in Chicago.


What makes this move so
interesting is that Stewart will be
going into business with a guy, Gene
Haas, who currently is serving jail
time for tax evasion. But the kicker


is that Stewart will be paid a driver's
salary of more than $5 million that
will make him the highest paide driver
in the sport.


It also appears there will be
plenty of sponsorship money for Stewart
with Office Depot and Old Spice coming
on board with him.
