In The News: How to be Gracious, Fires and Explosions

The Roanoke Times is reporting:

Southerner's may hold the title of being the most gracious people in the United States. Yet it seems that the south with 1/3 of the population accounts for 43 percent of the national homicide rate. The Roanoke Times proposes that this may be related to just what happens when we are offended, in a culture that means what it says.

The Richmond Times is reporting:

Virginia lags in teaching the concepts of evolution. The conclusion:

"The report, conducted by the Bethesda, Md.-based Editorial Projects in Education Research Center, culled 10 evolution-related themes from the National Research Council's recommended standards for science education."

Virginia however disagrees with this conclusion.

News Channel 3 in the Hampton Roads is reporting:

The cause of an explosion and fire in a refinery near Yorktown Virginia, will be kept under wraps. Apparently, they know the cause, but they are not revealing anything.

Channel 10 in Roanoke is reporting:

A huge fire that caused a 150,000 dollars of damage at an auto parts store in Roanoke is still under investigation.
