    Submitted By Karen Nuzzo

        Are you worried that you may not have access to health care in the future? Are you worried about being able to afford health care insurance?

  • With malice toward none

    By James F. Burns

        “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive..to bind up the nation’s wounds, to..achieve..and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves.”

  • Comey’s testimony was extraordinary

        If he didn’t show anything else during his Senate testimony, fired FBI Director James Comey demonstrated the integrity that Donald Trump so utterly and obviously lacks.
        That was among the reactions Americans felt as literally millions watched last Thursday’s hearing from beginning to end. At the very least, they were left with an impression of a president who went to some lengths to charm the FBI Director who “he hoped” would end an investigation he didn’t want.

  • Different times

        We’ve seen just this past week how different media coverage of the presidency can be.
        Had the main stream media treated President Obama the way it is now treating President Trump, a much different narrative would have been painted on Trump’s predecessor.

  • Jon Tobin pursues football success

  • Bob Humphreys reflects on more than 50 years in baseball

    Bob Humphreys first got involved with baseball way back in 1944.

    He was listening to the radio broadcast of the 1944 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns and instantly became a fan of the Cardinals and their outfielder/first basemen, Stan Musial.

    “That was when I first started thinking about baseball and that I’d like to play ball,” said Humphreys. “I got a thing off the back of a Wheaties box about pitching... I think it cost me a quarter. That’s how I got started throwing the ball.”

  • Principal disputes demotion

        For seven years Aprille Monroe has served as the principal of Huddleston Elementary School.

        Last Thursday, that changed when the Bedford County School Board voted to reassign her to a teaching position. Monroe claims the demotion was in response to an email she sent last August to Central Office personnel concerning a video highlighting the school system’s accomplishments through personalized learning.

  • JF soccer wins State title in shootout

        After cruising through the regular season and the conference and region playoffs, Jefferson Forest’s girls soccer team was pushed to the brink, both mentally and physically.

        It was a true test of tenacity and grit on June 9-10, as the Cavs left it all on the field in back-to-back shootouts en route to capturing the program’s first ever 4A State Championship title.

  • Tuesday is primary day in Virginia!

        Virginians know how our state holds a governor’s election the year after the presidential contests, and we take for granted that it will be watched everywhere. This year is no less true!
         On Tuesday, June 13, citizens of the Old Dominion who don’t like to miss elections will go to the polls and choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. Problem is, those “who don’t like to miss elections” are smaller than they’ve ever been, and it’s a serious problem for our democracy.
