Calvary Baptist wants to buy property next to the church to build a parking lot for its members. But to do so-- the church had to get permission to demolish two vacant buildings. Roanoke's Architectural Review board ruled against the church's proposal saying one of the buildings had historic value. Last night-- the church appealed to city council.

Governor Mark Warner says he is backed into a corner. He told state workers some bad news, and confirmed everyone's fears that a complete end to the car tax is only a dream for now. His proposed budget amendments include no pay raise for state employees, and a postponement of the FULL phase-out of the car tax until 2005.

Warner said the state is in real danger of building a five- billion dollar shortfall over the next four and half years unless budget issues are addressed now.
Today, he stood with lawmakers who have agreed on a framework for the budget fix.

((GOV. MARK WARNER; ONE IN THIS ROOM. NO ONE IN THIS ROOM, LET ME ASSURE YOU, INCLUDING ME IS COMPLETELY HAPPY WITH THE DETAILS OF THIS FRAMEWORK, BUT THAT HOWEVER IS THE NATURE OF A COMPROMISE.

Warner's plan will increase the state agency cuts that were included in Governor Gilmore's budget, freeze the car tax repeal at 70 percent, eliminate a two percent pay raise for state employees, and raise some user fees, including a two-dollar increase in the motor vehicle registration fee.
