One day in the late 1970's two young girls vanished from school. No sightings, few leads,they're just gone. It's one of the oldest cold cases in the Roanoke Police files. They think they have their man and they believe the girls were murdered. The prime suspect was a convicted killer, but he took any clues to his execution. Those clues might just be buried in rural Bedford County. ***************** "I've come up with a hypothesis of my own," claims Linda Owens. She says a small parcel of land in Bedford County holds the bodies of her kid sister and one of her friends.

Dr. Burton agrees that cost issues are a major difference between ER treatment and urgent care options. “There is a substantial price difference, but it depends upon the medical problem and what level of treatment is required before you can make that comparison,” Dr. Burton says. “In general, urgent care charges are less. The ER is equipped to handle much more complicated, costly interventions.” There are other reasons visiting an emergency room for a relatively minor situation may cost you significantly more than visiting your primary care physician or an urgent care facility.

Don't have the time or the money to head to the beach this summer? Why not venture to Franklin County for some sun, sand and swimming at the Smith Mountain Lake Community Park. Like its larger counterpart, the Smith Mountain Lake State Park, there used to be a fee at the Smith Mountain Lake Community Park.  Franklin County officials waived that fee this summer, and people have been flocking to the spot. The beach area is smaller than the one at the state park, which makes it easier to keep track of small children.
