Most of V-M-I's multi million dollar expansion plan will now happen in five years rather than ten.
That's because the school has already secured several donors.

There will also be major changes to Route 11 which could change the face of Lexington.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke]

What was set for a 2-week jury trial, boiled down to a one-hour "no contest" plea yesterday morning. Even as 31-year old Clinton Brathwaite accepted an agreement that means he'll never get out of the penitentiary, he was still fuming about the story that he tried to have one of the witnesses killed. Once Brathwaite's pleas were accepted, the prosecutor acknowledged the contract hit was nothing more than a rumor from other inmates.

The most notable change is that subtle colors have been added to the once cream colored background. The colorizing is to make the currency harder for counterfeiters to copy. Now here's a look at your local stocks. [TAPE TOSS TO STOCKS] [STOCKS] [WOOD ROGERS SPONSOR BOARD 5185 ESSC] [COMM]
