Based on the most recent available tax figures, the study found that gross income for married couples in 19-93 was forty-one-thousand, five-hundred-eighty-two dollars -- just three-tenths of a percent higher than the previous year.
The study says married couples in Virginia still have not exceeded the buying power they had in 19-86, before the last recession.

"As I feel that your station is a socially-responsible news organization, I am amazed that you allowed that to be shown as early as six p.m. I cannot imagine what positive value this brought to the newscast, but can think of plenty of negatives. With so many coalitions and groups lobbying for removal of such acts from the television screen, these acts are not good for the valley, the children watching the news and definitely not for your marketing strategy...I trust that in the future you will more carefully decide the value of the film you place on your news programs."

A viewer from Hollins called a foul on our coverage of women's basketball.
"I would be interested to know why men's basketball is referred to...as basketball but basketball played by women is called girls basketball or more recently "ladies hoops?" Similar sexist language is used in reference to every other sport. If they need to, let them refer to basketball teams made up of men as "men's basketball" and women's basketball as "women's basketball", but if you show footage these terms are usually not necessary as most viewers can differentiate between the genders."
