The Virginia Military Institute does not have a prayer of getting its case to the U-S Supreme Court.
Today the Court said it will NOT consider reinstating mealtime prayers at the school.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Lexington/File Tape; :00]


It rejected the appeal for state officials who said the tradition did not violate a separation of church and state.


The federal appeals court in Richmond found that V-M-I's mealtime prayers violated the Constitution, and the high court's action means that ruling will stand.
The case arose when two cadets sued when the school refused to change the prayer ceremony.

In a dissenting opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia argued the case should be heard because it raised important church-state questions. Scalia wrote leaving those issues unresolved is unfair to V-M-I.

Between November and February sharpshooters took 109 deer within Roanoke City limits. Roanoke police donated the 83-hundred pounds of meat to Hunters for the Hungry. The program was approved by city council a year ago as a way to solve the city's deer overpopulation problem. Officials say too many deer can result in disease, damage to landscaping and car accidents. Police say the first season concluded with "favorable results."
