She was returning to her classroom with the students, when Woodson asked her: "Has your room blown up, yet?" She indicated it had NOT, and then- -by HER account, Woodson said: "Well, it's going to."
Woodson denies making the second remark.
An hour later the building was evacuated a second time.

((Haley's camp has attracted more than 60 campers this year. And his camp is a little different because Haley goes through the same drills with the campers.
He says its the hands on approach that seems to benefit the kids especially those that need a little discipline in their lives.)) ((CHARLES HALEY/108 CAREER NFL SACKS:)) ((H.S. INGO/CAMPBELL COUNTY HEAD FOOTBALL COACH:)) ((The workouts can only help Haley down the road this year.
The defensive end, who retired in 1996 with chronic back pains, is returning to the N-F-L. Haley, who has 5 Superbowl rings more than another N-F-L player played two playoff games with San Francisco last year.
He's worked out recently for the 49ers, the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers.
And even at the age of 35, Haley says he still has the heart and skills to play the game.)) ((HALEY:)) ((ROY STANDUP:))
