The newspaper is planning a 31- million dollar, 50- thousand square foot facility on Salem Avenue. The Board of Zoning Appeals granted a special exception for the expansion earlier this month, but some neighboring property owners and downtown residents have vowed to challenge the project in court. Tomorrow, Roanoke City Council will consider a resolution that would authorize the city manager to seek an ammendment to the city's zoning ordinance. The change would allow printing plants in the city's commercial and industrial districts. A public hearing would be scheduled in mid-October.

A man from Roanoke [Tim Underwood] wrote: "This is a time that all Americans must come together as one and in unity cry out for Justice! Cry out as one America, for swift action against those that would penetrate our borders and murder our brethren."
Many are hoping for terrible, swift retaliation. [J. Gauldin/Callands]"I heard on TV that someone said the terrorists had won a victory, but in my eyes they just signed their death warrants. They are taking on the US and its proud people. We as a nation may quarrel between ourselves but we will stand together they better believe that. The Freaks, Cowboys, Yanks and the Rebels will stand together."
Still others urge restraint. [Mrs. Robbie Gallagher/Roanoke] "Comments made about taking revenge are totally unacceptable. The people that have done this cowardly act need to be held responsible for their actions and be punished severely, but teaching our children that revenge is right is totally wrong!" [Olivia Monem/Blacksburg] "Please remind viewers that the attacks in New York and Washington were done by people after political gains, and do NOT represent people of any particular race or religious background. Backlash against Muslims in particular have occurred in many places around this country and there is absolutely no justification for that."
[Sheila G. Conner/Roanoke] "We, as Americans, must NOT act like the dogs that attacked us by attacking all Middle Eastern nationalities that are living in the US To do so is to become terrorists ourselves."
A couple of viewers are urging the city of Roanoke to change the color of the Mill Mountain Star.
[Amy Collins/Christiansburg] "I have a comment I wish you would relay to the officials of Roanoke. Your reporting stated their comment as to changing the star to red, white and blue was that it took more than the flick of a switch. My comment to them: It will also take more than the flick of a switch to find, if ever, all the fallen heroes, the moms, the dads, the sisters, the brothers, the friends."
During one part of the continuous coverage on CBS, the network aired videotape of the attack on the World Trade Center, accompanied by strong language from the eyewitnesses.
Objecting to that, one viewer wrote: [Sandra Jones/Troutville] "I would like to know why that kind of language had to be aired? The pictures would have said enough. The sound could have been deleted. I believe this was uncalled for and if people don't stand up against it it will continue to trickle into our homes until it becomes commonplace."
