It's complaint you hear often, if I can keep my yard clean, why can't my neighbor? The City of Roanoke has cracked down on weed and trash violators the last few years with some success.   In fiscal year 2009-2010, the city issued 2,636 citations.  Out of those, 1,882 heeded the warning, a 71% compliance rate. The number of violations has grown steadily the last few years.  City leaders say it's because of better enforcement. The city has hired more code inspectors.  There are now 11.  The city now only issues one warning rather than several.  Residents also have seven days to clean up their yard rather than ten. If a property owner fails to heed the warning, the city will pay a contractor to mow the lawn and then send you the bill.  Depending on the size of the property, it could cost you more than $200.

A daughter, her mother, and grandmother join forces to bring medical care to a rural part of southwest Virginia.  It's a place where people have a hard time getting and paying for good health services. This family of nurse practitioners is doing something very different. 75-year-old nurse practitioner Dee Everhart has earned the right to retire, but that's not happening anytime soon. On July 1, Virginia law changed, allowing nurse practitioners to open their own practices without an attending physician on site.

A close call for the residents of a Pittsylvania County home. They were asleep early Saturday morning when a car crashed into their front porch. State Police say a driver was speeding along Iris Lane, when he drove the car across a lawn, hit two parked cars, before hitting the porch. No one inside the home was hurt. The driver, 23-year-old Christopher Todd Davis of Danville, was charged with driving under the influence. He and his passenger were taken to the hospital, but they have both since been released.

    Some people get "pumped up" for the holiday season, but one family in Montgomery County takes it to another level.     The Proffit's home is on Corbin Drive, just off of Route 460 in Shawsville.      Some families have one or two inflatables characters in their lawn, but the Proffit's have gone well beyond that.     In fact, their front lawn gone - for the time being. It's covered with 58 inflatables.     The display has grown to the point where a neighbor's yard is needed to accommodate all the displays.  This year's set up is the largest date.

Our next story is about a place that used to be called "Mountain Lake Hotel.”  It is probably best known for the film "Dirty Dancing. " For lots of folks around Southwest Virginia, the new Mountain Lake Lodge in Giles County is best known as the place where "Dirty Dancing" was filmed. The former Mountain Lake Hotel couldn't survive the economic collapse, nor a disappearing lake. "It just got to the point where it needed some help," general manager Jeff Burrell said. The new Mountain Lake Lodge, surrounded by more than 2,500 acres and owned by an endowment, now boasts a new restaurant, tavern, updated rooms and a much more down to earth style, after a multi-million dollar renovation.
