  • Jefferson Forest runs over Magna Vista

    Jefferson Forest knocked off last years state 3A Champion, in what seemed like an effortless game by the Cavaliers.
        Magna Vista and Jefferson Forest faced off last Friday for the first time in 23 years.  The Warriors may want to wait another two decades before the two teams meet again.
        The Cavaliers proved to be less-than-gracious hosts, defeating Magna Vista 53-20.

  • Get involved

        The best way to assure a student will have success in school is for that student’s parent/guardian to be involved.
        That’s as simple as it gets.
        The more a parent is aware of what their child is learning and doing at school, the more that parent can help make sure the student will succeed.
        If a parent cares, the student is more likely to care as well.

  • Fighting against the Iran Nuclear Agreement

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    For many weeks now, the House and the Senate have been carefully reviewing the nuclear agreement the Obama Administration and the nations of China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom reached with Iran in July.  On our Main Street Tour, I heard from many Fifth District Virginians who are sincerely concerned about this agreement, and I share these concerns.


  • House advances Secret Service reforms

    Restoring the trust that the American people must have in the vital tasks that the Secret Service carries out every day is critical. The Secret Service has two primary missions: criminal investigations and protection of the President, Vice-President, and other dignitaries. As a result, the agency is entrusted with protecting some of our most valuable assets as a nation. This is an extremely difficult, high-profile mission, for which there is no margin for error.

        The religious right has a new hero!
    She is Kim Davis, the Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, who, at this writing, was in jail.
        That’s because she had been held in Contempt of Court by a conservative federal judge, appointed by George W. Bush, for refusing to issue perfectly legal marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

  • Wandering into a swamp

        WDBJ7 is the station I normally watch. Most mornings I watch their Mornin’ show so I’ve seen Alison Parker many times. I thought she was a talented reporter who did a great job and had a wonderful on-air personality. It also helped that she was very pretty and ended her stories with a really cute smile.
