Yesterday, Haleos filed papers with Federal Bankruptcy court in Roanoke. Management at the fiber optic company had been trying to secure funding for its future. The Blacksburg-based business had two rounds of layoffs and furloughed all employees except management in February. Officials blame a downturn in the telecommunications industry. Montgomery County stepped in to re-possess the company's building last month when Haleos couldn't make lease payments.
That process is now on hold because of bankruptcy proceedings. Haleos officials could not be reached for comment.

The exact plans for the widening of Intersate 81 are still vague and a trucking group would like to know the fate of tolls on the road.
The Virginia Trucking Association has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get access to the Star Solutions proposal to widen the highway.
V-Dot says Star was the only company to submit a bid on the project, but has refused to say how much it will cost.
