More changes could be in store
for downtown Roanoke traffic.

But how successful was the last
shift from one way to two?

Plus, do your pants hang low?

If so, state law may soon require
you to hitch them up... to get to your

And Willie Nelson gets gassed up

September 28, 2004 The project will not protect Roanoke

representatives of the U.S. Army Corps

Tonight, they also told members of the
Victory Stadium Committee that the
facility could be flood-proofed, but
that it's unclear how much that would
cost, and whether federal funding would
be available.

The 10-mile flood control project will

cost about 65-million dollars.

The 300 thousand dollar price tag
did not cover field or fencing.

Neither is covered under national
flood insurance.

The city pays between 8 and 10
thousand dollars a year for flood
insurance on Victory Stadium- and
roughly 3-thousand for the Armory.

Much of the damage at Victory
stadium was electrical.

A large part of the expense also
went for cleanup.

Raycom-JP Sports The Cameron Crazies, many of whom :00 had camped out for tickets since they
returned from Christmas break were on
their game and so were the Blue Devils.

The big man - Sheldon Williams -
puts ona clinic on low post basketball
with the drop step and step-in on the
right block.

And take a look at the acrobatic
hoop from Duke guard Daniel Ewing - who
goes and under and up for the deuce.

Roy Williams' team trailed
36-to-29 at the half, but managed to
tie the game up near the 10 minute mark
thanks to play of center Sean May and
guard Raymond Felton.

Duke #7 winning 12 of last 14 before tonight.

ENG#=2 tonight hosting Florida State, and for


the first 30 minutes it was a sad

The Cavs had just 28 points in 28

And they couldn't buy a three

Seminoles vs. Cavaliers But they never gave up and Sean
Singletary would just keep working - he
made 1 of 6 three point attempts, but
this one big.

And so was this one by Devin
Smith in the closing seconds that
turned a two point defcit into a one
point UVa lead.

Flame vs. Dazzle Tonight was the wedding :00 anniversary for head coach Kent Davison
and his wife Pat. While he was
coaching, I'm thinking she was looking
for her gift.

Speaking of gifts, Sherman Gay
backs in on the left block and scores
with some power as the Dazzle takes the
early lead in this one.

But the block party would
continue on the other end as Hiram
Fuller backs in and then fades away for
the jump shot.


The Dazzle would do some serious
damage from the outside, as well. The
Veteran - Cory Alexander rips rope from
the right wing. Cory finished with 23
points.
*CG final Florida
110 And the big man - James Thomas Roanoke drops in two on the inbounds play.
125 Matt Carroll hit for 43 as the
Dazzle beats Florida 125 to 110.

Heritage Senior Point Guard < SEMINOLE DISTRICT, A FEAT THAT WOULD

STEPHENS IS IN HIS SEVENTH YEAR AS THE
PIONEERS BOSS AND HAS REACHED THE STATE
TOURNAMENT TWICE, INCLUDING LAST YEARS
SEMI FIANL APPEARANCE. WITH FIVE
SENIORS, HSI TEAM HAS ITS SIGHTS SET ON
GOALS HIGHER THAN A DISTRICT
CHAMPIONSHIP.



Chris Cook represents one reason why
the Pioneers feel they have a shot at a
state title. Despite a full football
scholarship signed, sealed and
delivered to Virginia, the senior is
willing to risk injury to play
basketball for the first time on

varsity. He doesn't play that much, but
he wants to help his team and his
school.

JOHN SMITH/HERITAGE FORWARD

That kind of unselfishnes has
helped the Patriots win three of four
super Bowls. They also have talent, as
do the Pioneers. Senior forward Frisco
Sandige is being heavily recruited by
Liberty, VMI and Elon. That talent has
been tested with a difficult out of
district schedule.

DAN STEPHENS/HERITAGE HEAD COACH

Four ofthe Pioneers five seniors are
starters and that leadership will be
crucial come tournament time.

JOHN SMITH/HERITAGE SENIOR GUARD

The Pioneers enter the Seminole
Distrcit tournament as the state's
number three ranked team. Steve Mason
