The power company is now asking the
state to approve rate adjustments for
fuel costs, and environmental projects.

If approved, a customer's bill would
go up about 4.7 percent in September
and then another 3.5 percent in
December.

For the average customer, that would
add another five to six dollars to your

There's a discrepancy over how
much Phelps had in her account that
day, but Valley Bank confirms the
"merchant hold" on her account is what
prevented Phelps from using her card
again at Food Lion.

She says she had to borrow money
to pay for the groceries.

something similar happens when you use
a credit card to pay for dinner at a
restaurant.

Before you sign the tab, they add
20% in the process of authorizing the
transaction. Your account will be
charged only for the amount of the meal
plus whatever tip you ultimately add to
the bill. But that extra TWENTY-
percent is temporarily posted to your
account- -and can stay there until the
transaction is processed... AND- -just
as we saw at the gas pump- -that can

take up to 72 hours.

had a fantastic season under Seth
Greenberg in 2-thousand 6, 2-thousand

Backcourt of Zabian Dowdell and Jamon
Gordon. With the graduation of those
2, it appeared that Nigel Munson who
came of the bench last season as a
Freshman would slide into the starting
point guard position.

But rumors all sumer have been
rampant that Munson wanted to leave
Blacksburg and transfer.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT The Washington Post is reporting


that that is going to happen. Munson
will transfer from Virginia Tech after
only one season.

The Paper is reporting that
Munson who went to High School at
DeMatha in the D.C. area has been
released from his Scholarship by the
school.

Munson played in 32 games last

season for the hokies, averaging 11
minutes and 3 points per game.

OQ=...NEWS 7 SPORTS." << This week marks the 18th straight
(END SOT) year that Roanoke has hosted what is in


effect the State's Olympic games.

In those nearly two decades - 143
thousand athletes have made the trek to
the Roanoke Valley.

It is a unique weekend of
competition to be sure and one that has
managed to sustain some staying power
over the years.

PETE LAMPMAN

Localities in the valley help the
games with staffing, funding and
facilities.

Already nearly 3000 athletes have
competed in games this year in
everything from all-star baseball to
Black Powder shooting.

58 sports in all will make up
this year's Coventry Commonwealth Games
and Lampman suggests fans take in
something a little different this year.

PETE LAMPMAN

The opening ceremonies will take
place Friday night at eight with guest
speaker - Rebecca Lobo - the former
WNBA star and olympic gold medalist.
