First- Liberty's troubles.
Facing possible foreclosure on its Lynchburg campus, the University today paid more than one million dollars to its creditors.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Lynchburg;


Liberty owes about 15-million dollars to investors who bought bonds the school issued in the 1980's.
The cash-strapped university had offered to make a lump sum payment of half that total.
Liberty says it withheld interest payments while it waited to hear whether that deal would be accepted.
But the committees that control the account reportedly never informed the bondholders of the offer.
Over the weekend, those same committees threatened to foreclose on the school unless the interest payments were made.
Liberty says it gave in today to the "reckless and unreasonable demands" of the bondholders' committee.

Roanoke police are on the lookout tonight for an alleged carjacker.

Another man wearing a white stocking cap opened the passenger door of Carter's truck.
Authorities say the man brandished a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money.
When they did not find any cash in Carter's wallet, the suspect then fired shots through the driver's side window.
Carter then jumped out of his truck and called police.
Authorities are still searching for the suspect, who apparently fled in Carter's 1997 Dodge Ram pickup.
