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 yesterday they have sealed off the stills until Monday.
Bart McEntire of the A-T-F 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.

Recent teen violence has prompted parents and administrators to call for more police in schools.
And, the Roanoke County Police Department has come up with a creative way to get officers and students to interact.

((At first glance this looks a typical school soccer game..the coach on the sidelines giving orders...and the players trying to get a goal.
But there is something different about this team..the coach is Officer Tim Wyatt with Roanoke County Police Department.
It's all part of a program called "Cops for Coaches"...designed to get police officers involved with students in a positive environment.
Officer Wyatt says the program helps to break down barriers.

The U.N. is calling for an end to Cyber Squatting... the practice of registering the names of prominent people, places, companies, or events, and then selling that name to the people who need them.
The U.N. Intellectual property panel says THAT should be illegal.
Hitting the wrong key can sometimes have devastating results... just ask the FCC staffer who was e-mailing a daily commission report to 6 thousand reporters and government officials... and accidentally sent them a dirty joke instead. The worker has apologized and faces disciplinary action.

Another, entitled conflagration, will mesmerize you as it mimics the motion and colors of a spreading flame. And Whirly gig... I never quite figured this one out.... maybe you can.

A special Mother's Day delivery came very early Sunday morning for one Roanoke woman.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]


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 yesterday 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.
