    Just keep swimming is a popular phrase from the movie Finding Nemo, the Staunton River Golden Eagles have tweaked that slightly. Instead of swimming they’re running the football down opposing defense’s throats.
     

    That trend continued against Blue Ridge District rival Lord Botetourt. Staunton River rushed for nearly 500 yards in a 49-31 victory over the Cavaliers.
     

  • Festival of Trees

        The Welcome Center’s Festival of Trees has really grown after a humble beginning a decade ago.

  • What to do with BMS, Old Yellow?

        Bedford has received three proposals on what can be done with Bedford Middle School after it is replaced by Liberty Middle School, due to open its doors next August.

        Two of the proposals also included utilizing “Old Yellow.”

    Ordinarily, scoring 47 points in a playoff game should be enough to walk away with a victory. The Northside Vikings learned that playing Staunton River is far from ordinary. The Golden Eagles put up a jaw dropping 72 points in a 72-47 victory over Northside.
     

    In the first quarter Staunton River did what they do best, run the football. With, statistically, the best runner in VHSL history in their backfield they had good reason to do so.

  • Ospreys Open Season With Win; Get New Uniforms

    The Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy varsity boys basketball team had quite an opening day last Tuesday, Nov. 14.
        

    The Ospreys players started the day receiving brand new uniforms—a surprise to them—and then went out and defeated New Covenant 60-50.
      

    The uniforms were won in a contest that 323 Sports hosted.
      

  • Sports Dayl-ly: The NBA's Lovable Disrespect

    Admit it, you’re petty. We all are–some more than others– it’s  not a crime its just part of life.
        

    I’ll be the first to admit that I am irrationally petty at times. Even if you’re not like me in regards to being irrationally petty you’re probably like me in regards to enjoying watching other people be petty and disrespectful towards each other. This runs rampant in sports.
      

  • On being thankful

    By James F. Burns
    Retired professor

        Some surviving family writings from the 1800s provide perspective on being thankful for a wide variety of things.  Thus we may be thankful:

    For natural beauty—Cumberland Gap, 1895  

  • Shame on ‘Christians’ supporting Roy Moore

        National Republicans are horrified that their party has to go to the polls in Alabama Dec. 12 with Roy Moore on the ballot in a U.S. Senate race.
        Perhaps by now he’s been removed or has stepped down. But the real subject here is the way “Christian conservatives” will support any moral wretch out there as long as he’s allegedly “God-fearing” and against the only two things that matter: abortion rights and gay marriage.

  • Filling Jim Vest’s shoes

        Early last month, I wrote about how much Town Council will miss Jim Vest. I also mentioned my hope that Council would choose somebody who could fill Jim’s shoes.
        I’m glad to say Council has done that. Their decision, last week, to appoint Bob Carson to fill the vacant seat was a wise one.
