  • Jefferson Forest at Heritage football game postponed

    The football game at City Stadium between JF and Heritage will now be held on Monday, 6:00 p.m. It will still be held at the Stadium.

  • Liberty bounces back against Martinsville in football

    The Liberty Minutemen found themselves in a familiar position this past Friday evening.

    Martinsville had shocked the Minutemen by posting two quick touchdowns, just as Blacksburg had the weekend before.

    While Liberty never really recovered from the Bruins' shock, the Minutemen found a way to revive themselves and rang up six unanswered touchdowns, en route to a 41-14 victory in front of the home crowd.

    Quite frankly, this reporter was considering heading up to catch the second half of the Forest-Pulaski matchup after the Minutemen's anemic start.

  • Commentary: On Football and concerts

    What a great week it was to be me.

    The Cubs clinched the NL Central on Saturday with a win over the hated Cards.

    Also on Saturday, My Minnesota Golden Gophers moved to a 4-0 mark with a win over Florida Atlantic.

    Then, my Bills move to 3-0 by edging the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

    To top it off, I awoke Monday morning to find out I'm a part owner of AIG, along with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. With more to come!

  • Cavs face Heritage at City Stadium Friday

    Jefferson Forest jumps back into the Seminole fray when it heads to City Stadium for the second time this season. This time, the Cavs will face off with the Heritage Pioneers.

    While Forest has become known for its defense and disciplined play, it certainly is not known for being a bunch of road warriors.

    The trip to City Stadium, all 9.6 miles of it, is the furthest the Cavs have wandered from home this season. Their earlier trip was a smashing success when they topped Glass 20-0.

  • Minutemen to visit Eagles' gridiron this Friday

    It'll be the Minutemen at the Golden Eagles' nest when two of our county teams square off this Friday evening at 7:30.

    Staunton River will be trying to get the Liberty foot off its neck, where it has resided throughout this decade.

    Additionally, the Golden Eagles will be trying to break their long losing streak, which is in danger of hitting the 20 game mark should they fall to Liberty.

  • Forest drops tough gridiron match to Pulaski

    The scoreboard said that Jefferson Forest had seven points to Pulaski County's 10. The board also said that there were no more ticks of the clock left for the Cavs, as they suffered their first loss of the season.

    What the scoreboard didn't say is that Forest is a true force with which to be reckoned this season. The team is the smash-mouthiest of the smashers and its defense is tighter'n two coats of paint.

    Of course, the Cougars' defense is nothing to sneeze at, either.

  • About what the Constitution doesn't say

    When I was at Lynchburg College, I took a wonderful Constitutional Law class as part of my political science major. We studied a great number of U.S. Supreme Court cases, and not just the ones - such as Roe v. Wade - that we’ve all heard of, but other cases lesser known that led to more dramatic decisions.

  • A broad brush approach needed

    Congressman Virgil Goode is right when he calls for a broad brush approach to energy. There is no magic bullet that will solve our energy needs.

    The first thing we need to do is drill wherever oil may be found. The House "Democrats'" drilling bill falls well short on this count. It limits offshore drilling to beyond 50 miles from the coast and requires coastal states to agree. Otherwise, drilling is limited to beyond 100 miles from the shoreline. It doesn't provide for sharing royalty payments with these states, so they'll have no incentive to agree.

  • Bedford girl has Africa in her heart

    A mission trip to Africa may be turning into something more that short-term for a Bedford County teen.

    Renee Bach was two months past her 18th birthday when she landed at Entebbe Airport, outside Kampala, Uganda, on Sept. 18, 2007. She came as a short-term missionary to work in an orphanage. The experience she got was more than a culture shock.

    "I was supposed to be picked up by the orphanage I was going to," she said. "When I arrived, there was no driver."
