  • Extra Points: November

        The past few weeks have been crazy, people were so concerned about making sure everyone got out and voted and when they did and the polls we had been hearing on the news channels for the last three months were wrong people took to the streets.
        Of course, this is not the first time in the last year people have taken to the streets for protests and it definitely isn’t the first time that the protests turned into riots.

        Last year Staunton River traveled down to Magna Vista to take on the defending State Champions for a ticket to the state game in the semi-final round of the playoffs. Unfortunately the Golden Eagles lost and the game ended their season.

        It wasn’t quite the 164 points from last year’s meeting with Western Albemarle but the Staunton River running game was strong enough for an 87-40 victory. In the process, the Golden Eagles set a record high score at the stadium.

  • Crash on Va. 122 claims trucker's life

        A north-bound tractor-trailer rig, pulling an empty trailer, crashed into a house on Va. 122, located on a curve just south of the twin bridges.

        The crash occurred at 5:17 a.m. Thursday. The truck, a 2009 Windstar 5700, was traveling north when it ran off the right side of the roadway and struck the unoccupied house. The tractor trailer was driven by Nash Ranza Boyd, 42, of Stuart, Virginia. Boyd was killed in the crash.

  • Our nation’s veterans deserve recognition befitting of their sacrifice

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Veterans deserve our respect every day

    America’s veterans know the meaning of sacrifice. They’ve spent weeks, months, and years away from home and loved ones. They’ve missed birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving dinners, and first steps. Some have experienced physical trauma that we can see while others carry their wounds on the inside.

        Carroll Hosbrook, a farm boy from Ohio, found himself in a small French village on Nov. 11, 1918.

  • Why liberalism won’t work

        Up until the late 1960s America was a pretty peaceful place.

  • Issues lost in the press this year

        If you care about public policy and the great issues facing our democracy, then you have to lament the fact that this crazy election never materialized into a serious discussion of those questions.
        Much of it had to do with Donald Trump’s insane candidacy, his preoccupation with nonsense like “building a wall,” and the media’s insistence that his antics and Hillary’s e-mails were all that was worthy of discussion.

  • Make America great again

        I don’t know, as of this writing, how the election went. I still can’t believe that both parties managed to cough up such horrible candidates and I’m sure that, no matter which of those two wretches won, we are in for an ugly four years. The only hope is that Congress will work as a restraining force, rather than an enabler for the winner. As both were nominated by a democratic process within their respective parties, they are clear indicators of the degree to which American society has degenerated.
