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.

A person's backyard temperature may be significantly different from that reported through the television weathercast. Here's a few reason's why. WHERE IS THE TEMPERATURE DATA COMING FROM?

Federally funded, ASOS is a joint program of the National Weather Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Department of Defense.

The jury is now deliberating the case.  --------------- Closing arguments are now underway in the Wesley Earnest case. DAY NINE: November 19, 2010 Testimony ended Friday morning with the conclusion of the defense case and a surprising revelation from Earnest, who claims he entered his wife's house before her death without her permission. The admission came as Earnest re-took the stand for cross-examination.  Prosecutors asked Earnest about a time in 2006 when he entered Jocelyn Earnest's Pine Bluff home uninvited.  Wesley admitted to climbing in through a window.  At this point, Jocelyn had changed the locks on her home and Wesley was unable to gain entry through a doorway.  While in the home, prosecutors asked Earnest if he wrote on a "timeline," to which Earnest did not recall.
