  • Catch-22

     

    Two of the top players in the Seminole District ladies' circuit faced off Monday night on the hardwoods of Jefferson Forest.

    As expected, both had superb games.  It was the supporting cast which made the difference, however, as Liberty defeated the host Lady Cavs, 53-45.

    The win improved Liberty's record to 8-3 in the Seminole, while Jefferson Forest dropped to 3-9.

    The two teams' candidates for All-Seminole consideration were the marquee players in this matchup.  They did not disappoint.

  • Sports commentary: The Lost Weekend

     

    Why can't we point out the obvious?

    That was a bad Super Bowl.

    Unless you're a die-hard Seahawks fan, have a burning hatred of the Broncos or had a wad of cash riding on a Seattle win, there was little to like about Sunday's Super Bowl.

    It got so bad that the wife and I actually started switching between the game and a flick on Turner Classic Movies.

    The movie was "The Lost Weekend."  It's a beaut, starring Ray Miland as a drunk who is out on a life-altering toot.

  • 'X-Men' show what they're made of

     

    The Jefferson Forest wrestling team's warm-up tee shirts feature a large X on them.

    The symbol is the Roman number which stands for "10."  There are 14 weight classes in high school wrestling.  Jefferson Forest has only been able to fill 10 of them.  The 106, 195, 220 and 285 pound slots have remained vacant for much of the year, and will do so for the post-season.

    That means that the Cavs go into meets short of a full complement by 28.5%.

  • You-know-where freezes over

     

    There's a new king of the Seminole mats.  And he wears a black and red singlet.

    Jefferson Forest romped its way to its first Seminole District title in who knows how many years.  No one seems to know, because Brookville has owned the crown for the past 44 years.

    That all changed on Saturday.  In wrestling at Brookville's Hive, it was the Cavs who reigned supreme.

  • Stopping IRS targeting

    For over 226 years the United States Constitution has served as the law of the land, preserving the rights and liberties that have made our nation the beacon of freedom it is today. These rights must be jealously guarded and not impeded by the federal government.

     

  • The rule of law

    Snow came to Richmond this week. As is often the case around Capitol Square, the anticipation of the snow was a great deal more fearsome that the snow itself, which amounted to around an inch. As a result, the work here at the Capitol continued without interruption.

  • A tale of two governors

    Bob McDonnell’s first year after leaving office as Virginia governor wasn’t supposed to be like this.
        Instead of basking in the glow of a successful term as a high-profile governor who was on Mitt Romney’s short list as VP, McDonnell faces a federal trial instead.
        In New Jersey, this was supposed to be a positive year of transition for Chris Christie, parlaying an easy re-election as governor into a roll out in 2015 as a GOP presidential candidate.

        There seems to be no end of the bad news for ObamaCare.
