There was more fallout tonight in the Roanoke County debate over school construction.
A member of the county School Board questioned whether some of the supervisors had a hidden agenda when they offered to take over construction of the new south county high school.
School Board members say they're puzzled by the timing of the offer.
And tonight Tom Leggette said he's heard rumors that Democratic members of the Board of Supervisors are using the issue to bolster the re- election prospects of Catawba Supervisor Spike Harrison.
By using a prototype developed by a North Carolina architectural firm, Supervisors Chairman Bob Johnson says the county could save two million dollars on the cost of the new high school. He was not available for comment tonight.
