Governor Gilmore is acknowledging the car tax cut could be in jeopardy - at least temporarily. Virginia law requires the state budget to meet certain economic benchmarks before each phase of the cut can take place.

A shortfall in this year's budget means the state's economy isn't where it should be in order for the tax cut to be allowed.
Governor Gilmore says his commitment the car tax cut - which was a key issue in his 1997 campaign - is as strong today as ever.

(( You can't buy these teddy bears at your local toy store... and with price tags of up to two-thousand dollars they're even harder to come by.
These bears are designed... created... and made by the hands of a teddy bear artist.

[RUNS= 10]

A teddy bear artist first uses sketches to design the bear they see in their mind... then different fabrics such as mohair and felt are used to put the bear together... a task that takes at least eight hours.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT; 30:20-30:34]
[IN Q=When an artist]

((WHEN AN ARTIST IS MAKING THE PIECES, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO MAKE THEM IN LARGE QUANTITIES. THEY GET REALLY TIRED OF MAKING THE SAME BEAR SO THEY WANT TO CREATE SOMETHING ELSE. THEY'RE NOT OUT THERE JUST MASS PRODUCING AND PUMPING THESE BEARS OUT. THEY'RE BEING VERY CREATIVE WITH THEM ))
[RUNS= 14]
[OUT Q=creative with them]


Carol sells all types of teddy bears in her store but has been collecting the ones by her favorite artists for years.
A typical teddy bear artist will only design and make about ten to twenty of the same bear in one collection.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT; 30:01-30:19]
[IN Q=What makes them]

((WHAT MAKES THEM VERY SPECIAL IS THEY ARE HANDMADE, THEY ARE USUALLY LIMITED. A LOT OF TIMES THEY WILL BE SIGNED BY THE ARTIST GENERALLY ON THE FOOT. THEY WILL ALSO HAVE TAGGING ON THEM TO GIVE YOU WHAT THE EDITION IS. THIS PARTICULAR PIECE IS NUMBER NINE OUT OF TEN.))
[RUNS= 18]
[OUT Q=of only ten]


Names like Beverly White and Michelle Brown may not mean much to most people but teddy bear collectors will recognize them immediately and possibly even own some of their works.
The names of the artists can often be linked to the way in which they will design their bears.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT; 27:07-27:24]
[IN Q=You can always]

((YOU CAN ALWAYS DISTINGUISH BARBARA'S BEARS. THEY USUALLY HAVE A VERY LONG SNOUT, SHE WILL ALWAYS PUT THE EYELIDS ON THEM. SHE USES A PINCHED-UP NOSE TO GIVE THEM A BRIDGE IN THE NOSE. HER NOSES WILL ALWAYS BE MULTICOLORED LIKE THIS AND SHE WILL USE DIFFERENT SHADES OF FABRIC AND DIFFERENT TEXTURES OF FABRIC.))
[RUNS=17]
[OUT Q=textures of fabric]


If you're interested in collecting... Carol's advice is to buy the teddy you like the best... that way even if you don't make a profit... at least you can enjoy looking at him.
