An eleven- year old girl drove a station wagon from the Tanglewood area of Roanoke County all the way to Lynchburg last night.
Latisha Wright had been left in the car- -along with her SEVEN- year old cousin.
Latisha's mother, PATRICIA Wright, allegedly left the two girls alone in the car for about an hour- -with the keys in it, the radio blaring, and the motor running.

When Wright came out of Cory Everson's Aerobic and Fitness Center on Route 419, the car was gone.
She thought the girls might have been abducted, so she went to police.
Apparently her 5-foot-two, 120 pound daughter had grown tired of waiting and simply drove off... headed for a relative's home in Lynchburg.

The battle to eradicate head lice in their children.
A slew of expensive treatments are on the market.
But when two of Duke's well-groomed children had an almost ongoing battle with head lice for the past year -- she turned to scientific research into so-called "super lice" that can't be beat back by the drug companies, despite their claims.

So Duke's contacted others through the National Perdiculosis Association to initiate a class action lawsuit against Warner Lambert, the maker of Nix.

But its products may not be being used properly or children may be re-infested in the school or at home.
