  • Give 'em a "Ten"

     

    For three quarters, JF and Liberty played a classic.

    But, the saying isn't, "It was 

    36 minutes for the ages," it's "It was a game for the ages."

    This one nearly was.

    Folks, Staunton River closed out its season with a 56-42 victory over visiting Alleghany on Friday night. But, rest assured, the game wasn’t that close.

    On a night honoring the seniors of Staunton River athletics it was the seniors who contributed in big ways.

  • Sports commentary: Trophy trappings

     

    Well, we're heading into mid-November.  This is the time of year for leaf rakin', turkey eatin' and Heisman talkin'.

    That's right.  It won't be long before some young man heads to the podium to collect the second coolest-looking trophies in all of sports (after the Stanley Cup).

  • Don’t fear a U.S. Ebola epidemic

    Generally speaking, mainstream media coverage of the Ebola crisis – as it relates to the U.S. – has been about as bad as it could get.
        Television coverage, in particular, has done nothing but stir up fear and paranoia, and some people don’t need much encouragement to lapse into either one.
        When one of the infected Dallas nurses was being transported to a hospital, and was even then listed in fair condition, CNN and MSNBC sent out helicopters to cover the “motorcade.”

        D. J. Ashwell, chief of the Blue Ridge Water Authority precinct, said they had 391 voters come through by 11:30 a.m. — more than he expected. At that point voter participation had already topped 20 percent at that precinct.
