[natsot standup]



This show of force came just hours before negotiations were scheduled to begin in New York... The union has vowed to keep the pressure on Pittston.

It was a battle made up of powerful images.... miners sitting in road blocking coal trucks... carried to jail as others took their place, and Kirkland stepped right into the middle of it.

(Kirkland speech---protest)



In a move to show Southwest Virginia miners would not have to stand alone... he led a delegation of 18 labor leaders to Lebanon, gathered on the steps of the Russell County Courthouse, joining UMW president Rich Trumka.

(Trumka speech--protest)


and then they sat down sat down, blocking access to the building...
Kirkland wanted to be arrested, and he was... The image of Kirkland and UMW president Rich Trumka going to jail together energized the miners who flocked to a union rally later in the day, where Kirkland once again brought the union membership back together.

Boris Said, who started on the outside front row, was the leader by 3 seconds over Kenny Wallace after 27 laps.
Pole setter Rusty Wallace made his move and he would lead the race with Jeff Gordon second with 52 laps left in the race.
Rookie Tony Stewart, making his first race at the Glen, loses control in one of the turns he dropped back to the 24-th position with 50 laps to go.
Jerry Nadeau, in the Cartoon Network Car, would take the point and he was the leader just past the halfway mark of the race.
Rich Bickle spins out on the track for the second time and ends up in the sand bringing out the caution.
But no one on the track could catch Gordon and he would hold off Ron Fellows to win the Frontier at the Glen.

The heat maybe bringing about daydreams of a trip to the lake.
And in this dream you're in your bathing suit, strapped to some water skies, whizzing across the lake.
It's fun and there's a club at the lake that will help you learn the sport.

The Smith Mountain Lake Water Ski Club started in the early 80's. Since then skiers of all levels have been perfecting their technique.
The club offers at least three clinics to improve the skills of water skiers and wake boarders.
