Hundreds tried to get in line at the Kroger stores in Radford and Christiansburg yesterday morning. Each store only had 120 shots to give out.

Colonial Downs petitioned the board in August for a license to sell wine, beer and mixed beverages at its new Vinton off-track betting site. But, at the beginning of this month the Concerned Christians of the Valley objected to the license. A decision will *NOT* be made at the November 3rd hearing. Colonial Downs had hoped to have a license by the end of this month in time for horse racing's largest event, the Breeder's Cup.
