  • Preserving sportsmen’s heritage

    For many families in the Sixth Congressional District, sitting down at the dinner table is welcome ground for an old tale of a past hunting or fishing trip. Whether it’s a love of the sport, or simply spending time in the great outdoors, hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting are traditions shared by the young and old. Ensuring that these activities are available to share with future generations is an important part of our heritage as Americans.

        Things continue to move on schedule at the General Assembly, and this week the House of Delegates approved its version of Virginia’s 2016-2018 biennial budget.

  • House budget proposes no increases in taxes or fees

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        Last Sunday marked an important milestone in this year’s General Assembly.  It was the day that the House passed its biennial budget, known as House Bill 30.  At the same time, the Senate approved its version of the two-year budget.  Now, the “money committees” of each chamber – the Senate Finance Committee and the House Appropriations Committee – will work together to arrive at a final budget to present to the Governor in mid-March.

  • Senate budget directs more money to schools

    By Senator Steve Newman

        This week Virginia saw deadly tornadoes ravage our commonwealth and I would like to add my thoughts and prayers for those still reeling from the devastation, serious injuries and tragic loss of loved ones.  We even had sirens blaring tornado warnings in downtown Richmond and persons in Capitol Square were sent to designated shelter areas until the all clear signal was given.

  • On Trump, McDonnell and the Supreme Court

        This week’s deadline made for a problematic situation if one wanted to write about presidential politics.
        As you read this, the “Super Tuesday” primaries, including the one in Virginia, have been conducted, but the results were unknown to me.

  • Black votes matter

        Despite his popularity among college age people, the Children of the Corn did not put Bernie Sanders over the top in the South Carolina primary.  Sanders seems to have put a great deal of effort into courting this age group, possibly because they are just too immature to realize that the socialism he’s preaching has been tried, in Europe, and mostly abandoned because it doesn’t work. Unfortunately for him, this age group has a poor record of showing up to vote.

  • One person

        One person can make a difference.
        That is something Lionel Toms taught us.
        Toms, who passed away last Monday at the age of 72, didn’t let the tragedy that took the life of his son remain just a tragedy. He used it as an impetus for change.

  • Former Cash Advance employee guilty of identity theft

        A former employee of Cash Advance in Bedford will have to pay back $12,000 in restitution to the business, following her conviction on three counts of identify theft Friday in Bedford County Circuit Court.

        Helen Meador Moody was arrested in December 2014 on the charges and entered guilty pleas last October. On Friday she was sentenced to two years in prison with all of that time suspended. She will serve two years of supervised probation and have to make the restitution payments at no less than $100 per month beginning in April.
