The Grandin Theater Foundation has met its fundraising goal...

[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]

The city said it would put up half a million, if that amount could be matched. Foundation President Tony Stavola (stuh-VOH-la) says by exceeding the goal, additional renovation work can be done now ...rather than putting it off until after the theater is re-opened. Though the "star campaign" was a success, the foundation hopes to raise another quarter million.

Some 37-hundred Dominion Virginia Power workers say they'll walk off the job today. The threatened work stoppage follows the union's rejection of the company's latest contract offer. It called for a 16-point-5 percent wage increase over five years, pay increases for shift differentials and employees working in expensive northern Virginia, as well as pension plan and medical benefits improvements. A spokesman for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 50 says Dominion's final offer was NOT as good as quote the``last, best and final'' offer the company made in May. The company says it'll wait to see if workers do walk off the job and decide how to proceed from there.
