Canada geese are safe for now over the skies of Virginia.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Hanover Co.;]


A federal judge yesterday issued a temporary restraining order.
It would indefinitely halt a U.S. Department of Agriculture plan to round up and slaughter about 13- hundred Canada geese across the state.
The Humane Society challenged the slaughter plan this year.
Last year, about 17- hundred geese were killed in Virginia by the U-S-D-A -- which labels the birds a nuisance and a health hazard.
The U-S-D-A will NOT release the Virginia sites it had planned for the geese round-up this year.

Soon boys AND girls will be marching to the same beat in Colonial Williamsburg--
It plans to add females to its Fife and Drum Corps.
The move represents a surrender to historical inaccuracy, since girls weren't fifers or dummers in the 18th century.

But a spokesman for the historic attraction said girls should have an equal opportunity for the highly-sought positions.
The fife and drum corps has about 80 members, ages ten to 18. Girls will wear the same white shirts and knee britches uniforms as the boys and will get the same training when the corps goes coed.
