A Southeast Roanoke community formerly in the path of 73 has been declared a historic place, so yesterday VDOT announced a change to part of the proposed route.

An apparent stomach virus is being blamed for more than a hundred students and teachers missing class yesterday at Claremont Elementary in Pulaski County.
The New River Valley Health Department is investigating the illness.
The contagious virus is said to mimic the symptoms of the Norwalk virus. Health officials informed students and advised school officials on decontamination procedures. The Pulaski County school superintendent says extra custodial staff have been disinfecting the school.
The symptoms generally last 24 to 48 hours.

Leaders of one of Roanoke's biggest churches are reacting to a confession made this week by retired pastor Charles Fuller.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke/October 1999]

In a videotaped statement played at a membership meeting Sunday night, the Reverend Doctor Fuller admitted he carried on an adulterous love-affair for 15 years of his tenure at First Baptist Church. The Chairman of Deacons says the church forgives him. "We at First Baptist grieve at the confession of Dr. Charles Fuller," Gene Cress said in a written statement released yesterday afternoon. But Cress also says the confession shows: "You reap what you sow." Fuller retired in 1999, one month shy of his 68th birthday. He remains an elder in the church.
(------------)
[ANCHOR=Kim]
[SS=None]


Reverend Fuller was widely known beyond First Baptist Church for his "God's Minute" sermons, which aired on Roanoke television stations for decades. It's unclear why he chose to reveal the long-running affair now, years after it ended. Fuller himself won't say, citing the fact that members were asked not to discuss it. "I will not violate that," Fuller said.
