council may not get the chance.


Today, a Roanoke judge ruled out
a SPECIAL election to fill Dowe's
unexpired term.

VO-NAT Council members were anticipating


a special election on May 6th, but the
Virginia code says that would be too
soon.


Another provision requires the
election to be held in the month of
May, which would have pushed the vote
to 20-09.


But no municipal elections
are scheduled then, and by May 2010
Dowe's term would be expiring anyway.

<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Cold air will continue to
filter in tonight on a gusty northwest
wind (Gusts 25+ mph). Skies turn partly


cloudy with lows in the teens and 20s.
The mountains can expect more heavy,
blowing snow overnight, mainly on the
western slopes, where heavy snow
warnings are in effect until 6am
Thursday. An area of high pressure
will build in from the west Thursday.
This will help clear out the skies and
calm the winds down a bit. Highs will
range in the upper 30s to near 40. On
Friday, another front will approach the
region providing some light showers.
However, the drop in temperatures won't
be all that noticeable, with highs near
50. Sunshine returns over the
weekend, with seasonable highs in the
50s and lows near 30. A surge of
warmer air will arrive next Monday,
driving temperatures to around 60.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Slow-clearing. Breezy
at times. Low: 22 THURSDAY: Partly to
mostly sunny. High: 41 THURSDAY NIGHT:
Partly cloudy. Low: 25 For weather

Williams College in Massachusetts,
where he made an appearance in the 2004
Division Three Final Four in Salem.


In between, Wall played a a post
graduate year at Fork Union Military
Academy east of Charlottesville, under
Fletcher Arritt who is currently in his
42nd year at the school. Arritt has
influenced more than 400 young people
in those 4 plus decades, and now Wall
is producing a movie documenting his
impact.


PHIL WALL/HOOPSTER TURNED FILM MAKER:


Wall, who lives in Brooklyn, New York
has logged nearly 6 thousand miles
since December traveling between the
Big Apple and Virginia for the film,
funding much of the project on his own.
Titled,"The Passing Game," for Arritt's
motion offense patterned after Dean
Smith's, it's a story about much more
than just basketball.


PHIL:


Wall did a college internship in Los
Angeles, working for a company founded


by Hollywood heavy hitters Matt Damon
and Ben Affleck. He progressed from
answering phones and getting coffee to
reading scripts. His experiences in
California solidified his desire to
make a movie.


PHIL:


The movie will include appearances from
several big time college coaches, who
have come into contact with Arritt,
including North Carolina's Roy
Williams.

TRAVIS: Wall hopes to be finished
shooting early this summer, and have a
rough cut of the film done in August,
before taking it on the film festival
circuit next spring. Travis Wells,
