To keep a 10-year flood reduction project afloat, more than 80 Roanoke residents could lose their homes.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]


City engineers say they need to buy the Hannah Mobile Home Court and spend an extra million dollars on the Roanoke River Flood Reduction Project.
Otherwise they'll lose federal funding and be forced to scrap 10 years of work.
When voters approved a seven million dollar bond for the project they were told no homes would be taken.
Residents of the mobile home park have not been notified.
Juvenile Court judge Philip Trompeter owns the mobile home park and says he will do anything to help the city.
The Floodplains Committee meets Monday at 2.

[SUPER=03-Blacksburg/Last Week; :00]


With Michael Vick sitting out tomorrow's game, the Tech offense will be in the hands of junior quarterback Dave Meyer, who played well in the second half last week.
Meyer threw a TD pass against UAB last season, but he's likely to face a much improved defensive squad tomorrow.

The Wahoos face another offense that can be dangerous. Clemson likes to spread the field and use the no huddle offense.
