Yesterday Mary Christine Bolling BOWLING
was taken to the hospital for a mental
evaluation after a two-hour standoff at
Mount Moriah Baptist church in Roanoke
yesterday.


Church members found her inside
holding two knives.


A church deacon talked to Bolling
through a window before calling 9-1-1
but she threatened to kill him if he
came any closer.


She was released from the
hospital around 6:30 this afternoon and
immediately arrested.


She's in the Roanoke Jail --
charged with two counts of assault on a
police officer, and one count of
burglary...

raise the "fuel factor" and that means
a higher bill!


CHANNEL=A VO-NAT


VO-NAT The company says its proposal


"reflects the dramatic increase in the
costs of coal...."


Demand for coal overseas and at
home continues to outpace
supply..according to aep, the result is
" steep escalation of prices."


The average residential
customer's bill- -based on 1-thousand


kilowatts a month- -will go from
71-dollars to nearly 80-dollars a
month.


This 12-percent increase has to
be approved by the State Corporation

VO-NAT Yellow Cab is asking City Council


to approve a rate increase of about 16
percent.


The company blames the cost of
fuel, repairs and labor.


A three-mile cab ride that costs
eight dollars and forty cents now,
would go up a dollar forty.


If gas goes higher than five
dollars a gallon, the company would add


another buck to the cost of each trip.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Clear skies Friday night with
temperatures in the low and mid 60s.
Winds will be calm. This weekend will
be rather warm for the NEWS7 viewing
area. High temperatures Saturday and
Sunday are forecast in the lower 90s.
We'll remain humid as well as the Dogs
Days of Summer continue. Over the
weekend, there's only a slight chance
of a shower or storm around here
according to our H-D forecast models.
Low pressure will sluggishly move from


around Charleston, South Carolina
Saturday to just south of Cape
Hatteras, North Carolina Sunday. Expect
occasional heavier rain bands for
coastal sections this weekend if you're
heading to the beach. Rip currents will
also be possible. But we stress, this
system should remain far enough away to
only provide some clouds, but little/no
rain for Virginia. A cold front from
the west will provide a chance of
showers Sunday night or Monday. FRIDAY
NIGHT: Mostly clear and muggy. Low: 64
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. 20% storm.
High: 91 SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly
cloudy. Humid. Low: 67 For weather

Not as bad as yesterday and

at one under.

TNT More rain and wind for the
players - but the young and the young


at heart persevered.


The defending champ is in the
thick of things. Paidrig Harrington,
who is battling a bad wrist, uses all
of his skills to get out of the pothole
bunker and drop this one right in the
cup. He shot a two under 68 today.


But Greg Norman continues to be
the story.


The 53 year legend shot his
second straight even par round and he
is just one shot out of the lead. He
last won a major 15 years ago, but he
recently married a major sports star in
Chris Evert - and believe it or not he
credits her tennis skills with helping
his game.
