((As the water level at Carvins Cove has dropped to record lows, and the city has called for conservation, the county has moved to maximize connections between the two systems.
But even as water flows from the Spring Hollow Reservoir, county officials have been frustrated with the city's response, what some perceive as an unwillingness to negotiate regional water issues.
In a letter July 28th, Supervisors Chairman Bob Johnson said the county isn't interested in merely trading water... He called that a short term band aid on a more serious problem: the necessity to addres the overall water supply needs of the Roanoke Valley.
But tonight, Acting City Manager Jim Ritchie responded with his own statement... which says the county's demands are unreasonable, and in effect are holding the city hostage during a drought.))

The county has given the city a deadline of August 20th to complete negotiations on an ammendment to the current water agreement.
But the city is balking at the rate the county wants to charge for water purchases.

Tonya, city officials say they will work to resolve these issues in a timely manner... but right now it appears the two governments are very far apart.

(SOT: Bill Campbell, Atlanta Mayor) "This ends this sad affair."


The day of terror started with a chaotic scene at two office buildings in the upscale Buckhead District of Atlanta. 44 year old Mark Barton calmly walked into two brokerage offices and opened fire.

(MOS SOT)

"There was blood everywhere."
When the shooting was over, nine people were dead, nearly a dozen injured. Workers locking themselves in their offices until police gave the all clear.

(NAT)

Police say Barton had concerns about financial losses. Witnesses say he walked into the busy office complex, greeted several workers, noted it was a down day for the stock market, then opened fire.

(MOS SOT)

"He had a woman on the roof, we ran to the ground."
Earlier, police found Barton's wife and three children dead in their Southeast Atlanta home. Five years ago...his previous wife and mother in law were found bludgeoned to death. Police accused him of the vicious crime, but the charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence.
