------

Along the nation's railroad tracks-- a manhunt -- for Rafael Resendez-Ramirez is underway. Ramirez is wanted for at least 8-murders in 3-states: Texas, Kentucky and Illinois.

(NAT)


In Columbus--Ohio, police stopped and searched a freight train after getting a tip THAT a man near the tracks resembled the suspected killer. They found no one.
Everywhere-- people are nervous...looking for the suspect. His hands are scarred and he has a snake tattoo on his left forearm. HE'S Known for his use of many different disguises and aliases and for his means of travel-- hitching trains.

(SOT/Jeanette Julius/Apple River Resident/07:18) "We live a town away by

the tracks and we are like maybe we should lock our doors. People aren't used to this kind of thing."

SOT: Steve Allendorf/Jo Davies Co. Sheriff

The Rafael Ramirez part of this investigation has been ruled out 18:08:29
LOCATOR: Apple River, IL
Authorities thought Ramirez could be the person who killed a young Apple River Illinois couple over the weekend--but THEY'VE since arrested someone else.
The Sheriff clearly hopes the arrest will bring a bit of relief to that quiet community.... but its not likely to bring much comfort to others living along the nation's rails...that is, until Rafael Resendez Ramirez is behind bars.

You don't need a big city to have controversies over downtown revitalization.

(( Its all about downtown New Castle putting on a better face... from the Mick or Mack to the muffler shop, they have the money, an 800 thousand dollar federal grant... but they don't have two vital pieces of property... a trailer park and an auto salvage yard, which the Federal Government says HAS to go, or the grant could be recinded.
That's why Supervisors put the brakes on the whole project last week, fearing they could be stuck with a half million dollar bill.

On THAT note, supervisors re-convened, to hear criticism from residents who say the project must continue....

Supervisers went into closed session, and after dicussing the issue, returned and voted to allow the downtown project to continue.
They also voted to begin negotiating with the owners of the two pieces of property, and indicated they would be willing to rezone some county land to allow the salvage yard to re-locate.
Supervisors say they have more confidence in the project now.

The 20-percent tuition rollback for Virginia's in-state college students this year may not have all the impact Governor Gilmore planned.
That's because schools are apparently increasing fees and room and board costs to offset Gilmore's tuition rollback.

So the average total cost of going to a four-year college in Virginia will only drop four-percent for in-state students.
