        A little after 5a.m. on Thursday, November 10 a tractor-trailer ran off the road near Morgans Church Road in Bedford County and crashed into the headquarters of SML Good Neighbors.

  • The slugs come out at night

        As The White Man’s Last Stand takes shape in Washington, it’s possible to feel that you’re watching a concrete wall when the sun goes down, observing the slimy creatures that crawl out upon it.
        Yes, the slugs come out at night. Those who will serve the incoming Slug-in-Chief don’t have to meet even minimum standards of decency or qualifications, because, well, he didn’t either.

  • Let’s give thanks for our democracy

        Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, a day that should include, along with eating so much that we lapse into a coma after dinner, an attitude of thanks for what we have and the good things that have happened over the year.

  • Give thanks

    Isaiah 12 NIV

    4 In that day you will say:
    “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
    5 Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

    I Thessalonians 5 NIV

    16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

    Psalms 107:1 KJV

        Grayson Overstreet has been pushing his way through defensive lines on the varsity team since his sophomore year in high school. Now as a junior Overstreet has rushed for over 2,000 yards.
        Overstreet started playing football when he was 5 years old. His parents put him in little league and he has enjoyed the sport ever since.

  • Extra Points: Almost the Holidays

    Thanksgiving is already here which means Christmas is almost here and it has also been one of my favorite holidays.
        However, it is amazing how early they put out the Christmas stuff, last year they barely had Halloween stuff down before the Christmas/Holiday stuff was put out. This year, forget it, they had all of the Holiday stuff out before Halloween was even here.
        Next year they will probably have all the Holiday stuff out in September and Halloween and Thanksgiving won’t even really be acknowledged.
