On Friday, federal and local authorities raided stills and businesses throughout southwestern Virginia and North Carolina.
Agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said today they have sealed off the stills until Monday.
Bart McEntire of the ATF says he expects 15 to 20 people to be indicted. The penalty for moonshining could range anywhere from three years to life in prison.
McEntire says that lab tests on the moonshine taken from the raids showed it to be as strong as 80 to 90 proof.

Much needed rain doused parts of our area Friday, but it didn't improve low water levels out at Carvins Cove.
The levels are a reminder of a drought in the 80's that caused it to dip to 23 feet below full pond.

((Carvins Cove reservoir was up to full pond for the first 5 months of 1980. This was normal, since the reservoir often fills up during January and February. But by the end of May, the water level dropped off and continued to do so until May 1981. Rains helped a little, but not enough. By the end of December, the water level dropped to 23 feet below full pond.
Everyone was affected. The lack of rain hurt farmers who lost 53-million dollars on corn, soybeans and peanuts. Residents were placed under water restrictions. Although they still had water other residents were not so lucky. In the Catawba section of Roanoke County, some wells went dry. Most of the residents lived too far from the county's central well system. This meant they had to either dig a new well or make do without water.

Even people that had water experienced problems. In September of 1981, residents noticed their water had a bad taste and foul odor. Roanoke City officials said the drought was to blame. Low water levels at Carvins Cove aggravated an algae problem.
But there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Significant precipitation arrived in the New Year and brought Carvins Cove back up to full pond by March 1982. For the first time in almost 2 years, water flowed over the spillway.

Michelle Giles' Mother's Day present was a seven-pound healthy baby girl named Justice Poole.
Justice was the FIRST Mother's Day baby in the city of Roanoke. She arrived this morning at 2:35 in Roanoke Community Hospital.
Her mom says it's her favorite Mother's Day gift ever, even though she spent several hours in labor and delivered the baby without pain medication.
Her only complaint was that Justice is just a little too sleepy.
