  • Finger-lickin' good twist: Birds put Colonel in the fryer

        These Eagles can soar.

        In a series of games with Blue Ridge foe William Fleming, the Eagles made the most of their opportunities.
        While the two schools' baseball game was postponed (due to a soggy field), the Eagles cleaned house in boys and girls soccer, as well as in softball.

  • House plan to balance the budget, grow the economy, and protect hardworking taxpayers

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

     

    Just as we have done each of the last four years, the House of Representatives approved an annual budget focused on setting a course for our nation and its future.  The Path to Prosperity budget puts us on a path to fiscal sustainability so we can preserve the promise of this great country for our children and grandchildren. 

     

  • Budgeting for the future

    Each year, families across Virginia set a household budget. Businesses in the Commonwealth, both large and small, do the same. This week, the House of Representatives acted on a budget plan for Fiscal Year 2015, which begins on October 1, 2014. In addition to laying out a blueprint for federal spending, the budget process is also an opportunity to strengthen programs like Medicare and Social Security and expand pro-growth economic reforms like tax reform, domestic energy production, and regulatory reform.

  • A better proposal

        Talk about audacious!
        Or, perhaps “clueless” is the better descriptor.
        Jim Moran, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, recently complained that he and his colleagues are underpaid.
        The Virginia Democrat, whose 8th district abuts Washington, D.C., made his gripe in a recent interview with CQ Roll Call.

  • Historic law triumphed over racism

    Nothing has probably defined the baby boomer generation in America more than the turbulent, inspiring, dangerous, and ultimately successful civil rights movement of the 1950s and ‘60s.
        In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in Brown v. Board of Education, that segregated schools were unconstitutional, that it was a violation of the rights of black children to be forced, only because of race, to attend schools that were inferior to those of whites.

  • Would this be legal?

  • Believest thou this?

    Matthew 27:50-54
    Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

  • JF takes Liberty in battle of the unbeatens

     

    It must have been family night at Minutemen Stadium.

    At least it was for the second half of the JF-Liberty girls soccer game.

    A pair of sisters scored for the now-5-0 Lady Cavs.  So did a Cousin.  

    And a Mercedes drove them in style.

    Liberty lost its unbeaten status in falling to the Lady Cavs.  But, a strong first half by the Lady Minettes (7-1) had the Liberty faithful thinking an upset might be looming.
