Joseph Daniel Luck and James Richard Looney, both 18 year olds from Montvale, and a 17-year-old boy from Bedford all face charges. Residents in the Blue Ridge area woke Saturday morning to find a church and more than 50-homes, mail boxes and street signs spray painted. Sheriff Ronnie Sprinkle says the three face charges under Virginia's hate crime laws since the lettering "KKK" was sprayed on both the home and vehicle of an African-American family. A second juvenile is also under investigation.

Governor Mark Warner delivered the news yesterday to the General Assembly's money committees.
Warner said the surplus means that an increase in each taxpayer's personal exemption will take effect one year earlier than scheduled.
The state ended the fiscal year with a nearly 324-million dollar surplus.
Some Republicans say the extra money shows that the recently passed tax increases were not necessary.

A friend of the victim says he needs reconstructive surgery. City and University police are investigating both crimes and say they do not appear to be related. (------------)
