Two teenage boys will undergo counseling and serve probation for sexually abusing two other boys at a Wytheville children's home.
Jacob Earl Cregger and Jacori Carter -- both 16 -- entered Alford pleas to misdemeanor sexual battery.
They were charged with sodomizing two other teenage boys last October at the Presbyterian Children's Home for troubled teens.
The home says its beefed up security since the incident.

((CHRIS POLLOCK: ITS A CAMP FOR THE KIDS. ITS FOR THE KIDS, WE BUILT IT FOR THE KIDS AND WE'RE JUST HOPING THE KIDS ARE THE FUTURE OF THE COMMUNITY, AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT WE BUILT IT FOR SO WE'RE HAPPY WITH IT AND OF COURSE WE'RE VERY GLAD TO GET THIS OVER WITH.))

But "getting it over with" didn't come easy. Pollock had to hammer out an agreement with the camp's neighbors to make the facility aesthetically fit in the otherwise agricultural area .. And then there's the issue of the Roanoke Steam.
((NATS))
In the past, the arena football team has used Rising Star's athletic fields for some practices. The Supervisors say the team - and ONLY that professional team - can continue to practice there - as long as they stick to a few conditions. Among them - no profanity or loud music. Conditions Steam Vice-President Pete Shaw says he can live with.

In the end, Board of Supervisors threw their full support behind a facility the County took to court just a few months ago .. That's one for Rising Star .. Now, its full "Steam" ahead. Meredyth Censullo, News7, Roanoke County.))

(( Town council members had to decide whether to let Jeff Bowles turn his historic house on Main Street into five apartments. They approved it last month but since they did not advertise the meeting in advance, it was illegal.
