Another of her goals in 1995 is to train dogs for those who need them. Continued from Page 1 the without our Extension Service," state. Ms. Edwards, who took over the farm when her father died in 1975, said at the Martinsville hearing. S.E.

Moran, a farmer and businessman from Bassett, argued that the Extension Service cuts would ruin some farmers. "I know we need money, but we can't do away with the few farmers we've got," said Moran, 71. R.J. Wilson, a friend of Moran's, said Wilson would have lost his peach crop last year if not for an extension agent who identified a fungus attacking the trees. Sara Taylor, 13, stood on her tiptoes in her high heels to reach the microphone and describe how the Cooperative Extension Service's 4-H program turned her life around.

Virginia Stinespring, 32, of Roanoke, broke down in tears while telling how Total Action Against Poverty community service programs helped her get a job, find a place to live and regain custody of her 3-year-old: son after getting out of jail. Cynthia Anderson, 33, of Roanoke, said a state-supported drug treatment program allowed her to beat her crack cocaine addiction and "change my life." But most of the first 100 speakers represented agencies that help people who are poor. Sylvia Smith, who chairs the Piedmont Regional Community Services Board, said Allen's proposed $6.6 million reduction for the state's 40 community services boards would dramatically impact Dec. 25 on Route 29 across from Pizza Hut.

The orphanage's 20 children were playing in the basement and survived the dawn attack.

"Why are they bombing us?" asked one boy, Misha. "'We're terrified. They already blew up our school." The airstrikes belied Yeltsin's pledge on national TV not to target civilians and seemed likely to damage his already tattered credibility. "The Russian president's promise to stop bombing turned out to be mere hypocrisy," Chechnya's deputy foreign minister, Ruslan Chimayev, said in Moscow. Chimayev claimed at least 200 people were killed in raids on Grozny and many others in attacks elsewhere.

The figures could not be confirmed; both sides have been accused of exaggerating their casualty reports. On Monday, Yeltsin said it was time to end Moscow's military campaign in Chechnya, which declared itself independent in 1991. Then Tuesday, he pledged to stop air raids that endangered civilians in the republic's capital, while saying Russian ground forces would "spare no effort" to subdue rebel forces. He also proposed new peace talks. But Chechen officials dismissed his speech for failing to meet their main demand: withdrawal of troops.

On the southwestern edge of Grozny, Russian armored units clashed with local forces. The bodies of three Chechens lay on the snowy ground. Artillery thudded on the outskirts of the besieged city throughout the day and Russian warplanes buzzed overhead, sending terrified people fleeing for cover. The Russian government press service said nine civilians died in one of the clashes.

It claimed Chechen fighters had fired on their own people. The press service also flatly denied bombing Grozny, despite eyewitness accounts from Russian and foreign journalists. A member of Yeltsin's hawkish Security Council, Oleg Lobov, said in Moscow that Russian troops would capture Grozny, no matter how fierce the resistance.

Mary Terry, director of the Virginia Water Project, said cutting state funding to the agency in half to $397,275 would mean that thousands of families would be unable to get running water and indoor toilets.
