GRAPHIC=None It's a debate that's gone back


and forth but this weekend the the
state legislature has passed a final
resolution hoping to settle the slavery
issue once and for all.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT In the final version of the


resolution, it acknowledges profound
regret for the involuntary servitude of
Africans and the exploitation of Native
Americans.
*CG locator Richmond The resolution also calls for
reconciliation among all Virginians.

That's different from the first
version which called for atonement for
slavery.

Some lawmakers feared issuing
atonement would be the first step
towards reparations.

The resolution passed unanimously

Titans vs. Colonels The Hidden Valley students broke :00 out the war paint tonight hoping to
cheer the Titans to a Regional Title.

Fleming, meanwhile, circled the
wagons in pregame warmups hoping to get
their second win of the season over the
Titans.

But the first half was a ragged
affair with 25 fouls including this
technical on Colonels' coach Mickey
Hardy.

Hidden Valley's Ben Boggs went to
the free throw line 20 times in the
first half alone as the Titans led at
the halftime break 36 to22.

Fleming's shot poorly from the
outside all night long, but was still
able to hang around in the thanks to
the inside play of Jamelle Hagins.

But the Titans just blew the game
