Voters will NOT decide who will
replace Alfred Dowe on Roanoke City
Council.


Today , a Roanoke Judge
ruled out a special election to fill
his seat.

Dowe resigned Saturday following
questions about his spending on meals,
travel and other expenses.

JEAN 3-SHOT JEAN 3-SHOT


It now appears city council will
appoint someone to complete the final
two years of Dowe's term.


News-7's Joe Dashiell reviewed
the judge's ruling. Joe, this is
certainly a surprising conclusion to a
complicated issue.

jdashiell@wdbj7.com but differences between the city
charter and the state code sent this
issue to circuit court...


Here's what Judge Charles Dorsey
had to reconcile...


CHANNEL=B VO NAT

VO NAT A law that requires at least 120
days before a special election.... that
would have pushed the election to
November...


Then another law, that requires a
special election to be held in the same
month as the normal election... that
would have pushed it back to May 2009.


But there was no election
scheduled in May 2009, and by May 2010
Dowe's term would be expiring.

So as it stands now,
council will make the appointment to
fill the two years that remain on

<< 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

basketball team is sitting pretty after
last night's win over Boston College.


The Hokies are now 8 and 6 in the ACC
and they don't play again until next
Tuesday when Wake Forest comes to town
for the home finale.


With only one contributing senior
on the roster in Deron Washington - the
Hokies were picked to finish 11th in
the preseason polls.


But right now they are in fourth
place and no matter what happens the
rest of the way - they cannot finish
with a losing record in conference
play.

centertown Bedford from taking care of
their daily business.
