  • Baseball: Staunton River falls against Northside and Byrd

    The Golden Eagles impressive six-game win streak came to a screeching halt when district leader Northside paid a visit and dropped Staunton River 6-2. Later in the week Byrd bested the Golden Eagles 5-1 to hand Staunton River its first losing streak of the year.
        

    Northside quickly jumped ahead 3-0 in the first two innings and was forced to battle back for the rest of the game.
        

  • Soccer: Cavaliers down Minutemen on pitch

    All Jefferson Forest midfielder Josh Weakley needed was a little gap as he fired the first of his two goals, this one from about 20-yards out. The ball glided, just barely, over the outstretched arm of Liberty goalkeeper Micah Dudley bouncing off the crossbar and into the net in the second minute.
        

    Weakley scored two of the Cavaliers three goals–the first and the third–to help Jefferson Forest extend its winning streak to five games with a 3-0 victory over Liberty.

  • Bedford, a place where art is thriving

    By Wynn Creasy
    Bedford

        I am writing to you on behalf of the many people in Bedford who love the thriving arts community that is here.
        In the 40-odd years since I left Bedford to pursue a career in the arts, and my recent return, so much has changed here. We are so lucky to have a community of so many gifted artists that contribute a great deal to the economy of our small town.

  • Large spending differences separate House and Senate on budget

  • ‘Trump Christians’ can’t justify their hypocrisy

        After last week’s announcement by House Speaker Paul Ryan that he will not seek another term in Congress, it’s clear that Republicans know they will suffer a historic defeat at the polls this November.
         It’s all because of the mentally unstable and corrupt pretender in the Oval Office whom they have both enabled and embraced. Aside from what he’s doing to the country, he’s slowly but surely destroying their party, and they have no one to blame but themselves.

  • Try using Google

        I was reading Rick Howell’s The Liberal Agenda last week and I had to chuckle.
        Mr. Howell apparently intensely dislikes  Corey  Stewart, one of the candidates seeking the Republican nomination to run for the Senate this fall. It seems to go beyond a partisan disagreement. He seems to detest Stewart, and a number of other Republicans, for what they believe.
