  • New Year's Resolutions for the NFL

    2018 is right around the corner and the best–or worst– parts about a new year is the amount of New Year’s resolutions that somehow make their way onto the internet.
        

    Usually resolutions will be people vowing to live a healthier lifestyle by working out and eating more vegetables. Or some could try and better their mind by reading more frequently. The list of cliche resolutions goes on and on and on.
        

  • Overstreet signs with Richmond

    The Staunton River library was filled with friends, family, coaches and teachers as Grayson Overstreet signed his National Letter of Intent to play football at the University of Richmond.
        

    Head Coach Chuck Poston kicked off the ceremony by declaring that the University of Richmond got the best football player in the state of Virginia.
        

    A bold claim but a claim supported by numbers.

    The first quarter of a Bedford County showdown between the Staunton River Golden Eagles and the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers on Dec. 20 placed all momentum on the Cavaliers side. But in the second half the Golden Eagles offense was too much as they took down the Cavaliers 72-58 to remain unbeaten.
        

    The Cavaliers moved the ball with excellent execution and hit their shots in the opening quarter.

  • Are right-wing politics ruining Christianity?

        In the aftermath of the controversial Alabama U.S. Senate race, many are wondering how people who describe themselves as Christians could have gone to the polls and voted for Roy Moore, a man credibly accused of child molestation?
        It’s a legitimate question, and one that harkens back to 2016: How could so many Christians have voted for a man with Donald Trump’s obvious moral shortcomings? It’s not enough to shrug and say, well, Hillary Clinton was worse. That’s a lazy answer, and it’s not accurate, either.

  • Christmas vandals

        I detest vandals. I can understand a thief. He benefits, or at least he thinks he will, from what he stole. Typically what they get from their theft, like the fellow who held up the Walmart this month, is small in comparison with what they will get from the court if caught and convicted. But, at least they think they are going to benefit.
        Nobody benefits from vandalism. The victim of the vandalism loses because his property is damaged or destroyed. The vandal does not gain from his victim’s loss either.

  • A promise kept

        Friday morning President Trump signed into law a promise he had made while on the campaign trail, providing Americans with a sweeping overhaul of the US tax code.
        The law had been adopted by Congress in a major political victory for the Republicans, but as is the case most of the time anymore, the victory came without bi-partisan support.
