Government sources says a major clothing manufacturer will open a distribution center in the county with the highest unemployment rate in Virginia.
The plans call for about a 40 million dollar investment and eventually construction of a new state of the art facility.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Last Week]


Last week we told you about occupational medicine doctor Darrell Powledge.
He was one of nearly 40 doctors who have resigned from the Lewis-Gale Clinic in recent months ... in a dispute with the parent company.
He gave a 90-day notice and was waiting it out -- but Lewis-Gale terminated him before the 90-days were up.
The official reason was:
The clinic found a new doctor who could take his place ... AND take his patients ... so the clinic said it was in everyone's best interest not to keep Powledge around.
(---------------)
[Live=Scott Full/Newsroom]


But now it looks like that new doctor won't be hanging around, either.
The clinic says Doctor Allen has not formally resigned ... but doesn't know if she'll return.

(( Just a week before the election that made Vance Wilkins arguably the second most powerful man in Richmond, the NRA dumped 20-thousand dollars into his campaign coffers-- even though he had NO opponent.
Three days after he was sworn in as Speaker-- another thousand dollars went into his campaign and five thousand into his political action committee.

The new Speaker and Republican leadership "will bury all pro gun bills in committee," and are "leaning on pro-gun legislators to stop them from introducing good gun bills."
