  • Trump conned a lot of Christians

        During the election, there was a stupid sign in Bedford County along U.S. 460 East that claimed to quote Donald Trump. It read “No one reads the Bible more than I do.”
        Sounds like him, doesn’t it? We know how he brags about himself. No one knows more, or does anything better, than him. But if people really believe that he’s some sort of private holy man, reading the Bible all the time, well, they’re easy to fool.

  • Let’s hope Trump can make a deal

        Along with reducing tensions with Russia, Donald Trump may actually reduce tensions with China. It’s an interesting concept concerning Trump’s China bashing rhetoric during his campaign.
        According to a story carried by Fox News last week, several media outlets have noted signs that Trump has become very popular on Chinese social media. It’s politically impossible to conduct an opinion poll in China, so Western media reporting on China monitor social media as a surrogate for polling.

  • Extra Points: Astonished

        Wow; that was about the only word I felt like I could say watching that Staunton River football team on Saturday. I don’t mean wow as a bad thing I mean wow as a good thing. I could not believe some of the plays this team was making.
        Watching this Golden Eagles team reminds me of watching Brookville back when I was in school, just everything about it amazed me. Sometimes it was truly better than watching college or even the NFL.

        If it wasn’t for the Staunton River offensive line Grayson Overstreet, Kalip Jones and T.J. Tester would struggle getting points on the board.
        The Staunton River line may not be the biggest line in the state of Virginia but with the guidance and help of their coaches they have definitely proven themselves to be one of the toughest.
