Southeastern states brace for Bonnie, as the hurricane continues to strengthen.
A Smith Mountain lake businessman is frustrated by continuing sewage problems.
And Virginia's Attorney General had a sobering message for incoming freshmen.
News 7 at 11 is next.
Classes start tomorrow.
But, Virginia Tech freshman got their first lecture today on binge and underage drinking.
Attorney General Mark Earley was on hand to greet the freshmen class.
Earley encouraged the class of 2002 to help change the image of the state's college and university campuses.
[IN Q=Every year we have]
((ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK EARLEY: EVERY YEAR WE HAVE A BRAND NEW STUDENT BODY OF FRESHMEN ALL ACROSS VIRGINIA. EVERY FOUR YEARS, WE HAVE A TOTALLY NEW STUDENT BODY. AND, I THINK FOR FOUR TO FIVE YEARS, IF WE MAKE A VERY CONCERTED EFFORT, COMING FROM THE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS, THE BOARD OF VISITORS, THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITITES AND OUR STUDENT LEADERS, TO CHANGE AND REBUILD THE CULTURE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES TO EMPHASIZE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY THAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE A CHANGE. AND, WE'RE BEGINNING THAT THIS FALL.))
[OUT Q=that ths fall.]
Earley's comments came just a few weeks after his task force on college drinking announced its recommendations to combat the problem.
[ANCHOR TAG!! ANCHOR TAG!!]
The group suggested getting members of the community involved--including businessmen parents, and even fraternities.
As David Johnson found out, it's an idea many people support.

The task force recomendations request that parents take a more proactive role in their children's lives before college--something some parents agree with.
[IN Q=We have talked]
((GINGER MATYKO/PARENT OF STUDENT:WE HAVE TALKED TO OUR CHILDREN ABOUT IT SO THEY REA AWARE AND THAT THEY DON'T DO THAT. WHEN IT HAPPENS WE CUT ARTICLES OUT OF THE PAPER AND LAY THEM OUT ON THE KITCHEN TABLE FOR THEM TO SEE. SO, THEY KNOW THAT IT DOESN'T JUST HAPPEN TO OTHER PEOPLE, IT HAPPENS TO THEM TOO.))

According to the guidelines, local and campus police and the ABC Board will work more closely together and some area sports bars have put in place tougher guidelines.

[IN Q=This year after]
((RYAN FORD/SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON:THIS YEAR AFTER THE GOVERNOR'S TASK FORCE WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT LOT CLOSER AT WHAT'S GOING ON. BUT, FOR THE MOST PART, WE ALREADY HAD A VERY STRICT SYSTEM IN THERE AND WE'RE VERY PROUD OF THAT.))

Relatives of victims and child advocates are asking that Leyva serve more of that sentence.
