G.I. Jane is brutal. The training scenes are violent and even sadistic. Although the movie takes on the timely and relevant topic of women in combat, it treats it too simply. However the movie holds the audiences attention and brings out a tough as nails performance from Moore.

Some residents in the town of Monterey in Highland County have concerns about the safety of their water supply.
That, as some schoolchildren have been out sick with bacterial infections.
But according to officials with the Central Shenandoah Health District, there's no cause for alarm-- and doubt there's any connection between the illnesses and the water supply.
Initial tests indicate the water is safe-- though it was necessary to adjust the chlorination system.
Though there is certainly no mandate-- residents CAN boil their water, for peace of mind.

Governor Allen watched yesterday as the board voted, and then said it was probably the most enduring legacy of his administration.
Under the new standards, 70 percent of students must pass new tests in core subjects for public schools to keep their accreditation.

Opponents argued that the changes will unfairly penalize students in inner city and rural schools and will hurt vocational education.
