Every Christmas, there's always that one house you can't miss. The owner of a home on Colony Lane in Roanoke County, Terry Reed, says he decorates his house every year. Reed's roof reads “Jesus Is the Reason for the Season”; that alone took seven hours. There's something special about lights on a house during Christmas. Especially with twenty-eight thousand lights, forty-seven artificial trees and countless displays. For the past twenty years, Reed has decorated his home every Christmas as a hobby.

You've been sending us your photos of acorns, and lots of them. Most come with the question: Do more acorns mean a harsh winter? So is this fact or folklore? There's always at least a little bit of truth behind some of the folklore. We've found it realy just depends on who you ask.    Long before the days of doppler radar, native Americans used the acorn crop to predict harsh or mild winters.The thought is that trees can foresee or "predict" the weather for the upcoming winter and provide enough nuts and acorns for all the animals to last them through the cold months.

Agee was sentenced to serve three life sentences in prison for killing his ex-wife, and then getting into a shootout with state police. Matthew Brannock is the former Virginia State Police Sergeant who was shot and wounded by Jonathan Agee on Interstate 81 in Montgomery County.

Orange was working as a security guard at a Roanoke apartment complex when he was shot six times. In closing arguments Thursday morning, Commonwealth's Attorney John McNeil said that in order to convict someone of first-degree murder, you don't have to know exactly who the trigger man is.
