The 29-th annual Labor Day parade gets underway in Buena Vista tomorrow morning at 10. Labor Day is the official start of the November election season so many politicians will be at the celebration including Chuck Robb. This isn't his first appearance. In 1991, Robb and his wife were talking more than politics. Keith Humphry explains in this week's Virginia Newsreel.

But others do come out to hear what the politicians have to say. In 1991, Chuck Robb was talking more than politics at the annual event. He addressed the Tai Collins story.
She said she had had an affair with the Senator while Robb was Governor. The former beauty queen's appearance in Playboy had re-ignited the scandal. Robb denied the affair.

It never came down to that. In fact nothing was ever proven; both parties insisted they were telling the truth. Despite the scandal, Robb was re-elected to the Senate in 1994. That's Virginia Newsreel, I'm Keith Humphry.))

But Virginia-based National Fruit Products Company was not amused, they make White House Apple juice and sauce... they filed a lawsuit saying the porn-site site tarnishes their trademark. The x-rated site is fighting back.

By the way, if you're wondering where Monica is these days... she's online, launching a new website called The Real Monica Incorperated.
She's selling handbags she designed when she was forced to learn how to knit to deal with the boredom of living in seclusion.

Hotmail is back and says everything is ok now... several days ago a gaping security hole allowed a hacker to set up a site offering password-free access to anyone's account... Microsoft says it's fixed now.

If you missed Saturday's tech game, catch the next one online... at Hokiesports.dot.com, pull up a live webcast of the contest.... two webcams watch both sides of the field, and while it's hard to make out a lot of details, live stats let you know exactly what's going on.

The first caution of the day came out on lap 51 Jerry Nadeau has a flat tire and hits the wall and then hits Mike Skinner.
Jeremy Mayfield would than pass Dave Marcis and move into the lead with 275 laps to go.
Then a couple of cautions slowed the race. Elliott Sadler gets into the back of Steve Grissom sending him into the wall and he would collect several cars in the crash. Dale Jarrett and Terry Labonte made it through the mess.
Jeff Burton, who had the fastest car on the track, would pass Jarrett and take his first lead of the day Burton led at the halfway mark.
The race was moving along until lap 245 that's when rain hit the track and NASCAR officials red flagged the race for about 20 minutes.

The cars turned a few laps under caution after returning to the track but the showers came in again and NASCAR threw out the red flag again.
When the action was stopped this time Jeff Burton was the leader and his brother Ward was second.
After running a couple laps NASCAR waved the white flag declaring Jeff burton the Winner Ward was second.
