the Roanoke River Flood Reduction
Project is up for another five million
dollars as long as congress approves
it. Plus President Bush's budget allows
for more money.

September 28 The project will not protect
Roanoke from a hundred year flood, but
representatives of the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers say it probably would have

prevented water from reaching Victory
Stadium last September.

Last night, 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
be built in phases and is expected to
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.

A bill that would fine Virginians
50- dollars for exposing their
underwear in an offensive way is
getting national attention and sparking
debate.

The bill's aimed at people who
wear their pants below the waist.

Some say it's just a passing fad
and believe it would be
unconstitutional to keep young people
from expressing themselves.

Others, however, call it
offensive.

The bill passed the the House and
is now before the Senate.
