Some workers at Danville's Goodyear plant say they expect layoffs on the horizon.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Danville;


The company says it cannot make enough tires at the plant, since union members refuse to work on Sunday.
So it's investing 15-million dollars in the Topeka Kansas plant instead -- where employees WILL work around the clock.
The Danville plant -- which offers the city's highest pay rate -- is no longer hiring --
It's also shipping tire machines to more productive plants.

Employees say they expect layoffs-- although managers would not comment.
Goodyear says without a seven-day schedule, it can not make enough tires in Danville--
So instead the plant in Topeka, Kansas, which DOES operate continuously, was awarded 15-million dollars to expand.
In a statement Goodyear vice president H-Clay Orme said:
"We were hoping to be able to invest heavily in our Danville, Virginia plant, but a union vote there on continuous operations failed. Now, we're exploring all options globally for supply points."
Two tire machines are also being moved out of the Danville plant.

Virginia Tech president Paul Torgersen is taking action to counter a growing problem with racism on campus.
Torgersen says the school will hire a vice president for minority affairs to deal with such issues.
A series of problems in recent month have included a racially offensive e-mail, reports of shouted racial epithets at blacks, and anti-gay graffiti.
Those problems were aggravated when students discovered evidence that two prominent Tech graduates were founding members of a Ku Klux Klan chapter at the school.

Colonial Downs' race track is in NO hurry to pay its bills--
That's according to the general contractor, who says he's seeking almost nine million dollars in court.
Track officials are disputing the claims brought by Norglass, the Ohio-based contractor.
They say not all work at the track is finished and some bills have already been paid or are for incorrect amounts. Norglass' attorney said the track hasn't paid the company since May.
The track opened for racing in September.
