They had one year to pay fines after appeals were abandoned - but court officials say that because of a clerical oversight, information about the dropped appeal never got into their computers.

(( He may not be as famous as his first cousin Jerry, but Calvin Falwell has certainly made a name for himself in central Virginia.
Falwell's family came here in the early 1800's.. and Calvin was born, raised and has lived and worked within a mile or so of his current offices on Campbell Avenue.
The walls of his office are lined with the memories of what has been a storied career as a pilot, businessman and entrepreneur.. and even at age 80, he has no plans to retire.

It is baseball that occupies a special place in Falwell's heart.
In 1962, when racial tensions forced the White Sox to abandon their Single- A home in Savannah, Lynchburg welcomed the team with open arms.

[RUNS= 25]
[OUT Q=simple it was.]


Keeping Lynchburg in the game of minor league baseball hasn't been simple, however.
With city hall now dragging its feet on renovating 60- year- old City Stadium, Falwell's afraid the Pirates are ready to pack up and move.

((CALVIN FALWELL: AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, I'M NOT GOING TO BE HERE MANY MORE YEARS, AND I'D JUST LIKE TO KEEP BASEBALL HERE.
