Roanoke's Community Hospital received a lot of unwanted attention last week because of a fire.

The defective columns would have to be torn out and replaced.

Federal Budget negotiations are continuing this weekend.
The President plans to meet with his budget team and top Democrats to review the status of the talks.
Clinton wants more money to go to education and it now appears Republicans are expressing some willingness to give the president some of the money he wants.
The President is delaying his fund raising trip to New York until late tomorrow so he is available for budget talks.
Both the House and Senate will resume work tomorrow. A top order of business is likely to be passing another stopgap measure. If one
isn't passed, much of the government will run out of money and be forced to shut down.
Lawyers for a man scheduled to die next week are asking Governor Gilmore to commute his sentence to life or at least grant a 60 day reprieve.
Dwayne Allen Wright is scheduled to die October 14th for the robbery, attempted rape, and murder of a Fairfax County woman in 19-89. Wright was 17 years old at the time he commited the crimes.
This would make him the first juvinille offender to be executed in Virginia.
Wright's lawyers say that he is mentally ill and borderline retarded.
He was also convicted of two other killings that occured in Maryland the same week he killed the Virginia Woman. [1
