  • Promises kept

        I noticed from last week’s Liberal Agenda the “Democratic” Party’s left wing is still working hard to win friends and influence people.

  • Liberty captures first win

    The start of 2018 could not have started any better for the Liberty Minutemen. After spending a few days in Florida to compete in a tournament the team returned home, still in search of its first win.
        

    With the Liberty band and Minutemen faithful in the stands to cheer the team on the stage was set for the Minutemen to find their first win. Seminole District rival Brookville was in town and not only did Liberty defeat the Bees it did so in dominant fashion winning 74-56.
        

  • Chuck Poston resigns as Staunton River head coach

    On Friday Jan. 5 Chuck Poston, Staunton River football Head Coach, announced that he would be stepping down after eight seasons.
        

    “It was a hard decision,” Poston said. “But now was the time.”
        

    Poston had been quietly thinking about stepping down for sometime, mainly to focus on other aspects of his life.

  • Jefferson Forest tops Rustburg

    In their first game at home since a third place finish in the K-Guard Classic the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers throttled Seminole District rival Rustburg. Two big offensive quarters pushed the Cavaliers past the Red Devils 66-46.
        

    The Cavaliers opened the game by outscoring the Red Devils 20-12 in the first quarter. That would be one of two quarters that the Cavaliers scored 20 points in.
        

  • Sports Day-ly: National Championship caps off great year for College Football

    The 2017-18 College Football season wrapped up with a barn burner of a National Championship Game. Nick Saban did what Nick Saban does best and led Alabama to its fifth National Championship in nine years becoming the fastest program to ever accomplish that.
        

    Now we’re faced with the task of figuring out who the real National Champion is.
        

  • He’s president of the worst people

        As Donald Trump’s beleaguered and unpopular presidency stumbles into 2018, it’s still quite possible to wonder about the people who continue to support this ridiculous figure. Who, exactly, are they?
        Well, we first knew them as “angry whites,” because that’s the phrase that was widely used after what I correctly called “The Great Stupidity of 2016.” Surely we’ve seen nothing since then to doubt that. Trump voters were mostly white, after all.

  • Make Christmas great again

        Last month, Rick Howell, in his Liberal Agenda, offered the opinion that President Donald Trump has made it a terrible year. Retailers wouldn’t agree. This Christmas saw the highest level of spending ever. This level of spending would indicate that, aside from “Democratic” Party political hacks, Americans in general wouldn’t agree that it was a terrible year.

  • Bedford gets national applause for it’s budget

        A local government’s budget may sound like a dreary subject, but it’s important. The budget descrbeds how the money you pay in taxes will be spent.

  • A good year for the tourism department

        According to Nicole Johnson, 2017 was a good year for the tourism department. The new year marks the beginning of her second year as the county’s director of tourism.
