  • Sports Day-ly: Support Local Hoops

    We are officially on the homestretch of the regular season portion of this year’s basketball season. The recent snow days have impacted the scheduling to the point that some teams might have some pretty packed weeks going forward.
        

    So far this season has been an absolute joy to watch. I would like to take this time to encourage fans, students and faculty alike to experience that joy by going and watching the Bedford County teams play.

    By Senator David R. Suetterlein
    District 19

        The Senate of Virginia has convened for the 2018 General Assembly. The membership of the Senate is the exact same as last year, but we will now be working with a new Governor, Lt. Governor, and House of Delegates.

  • General Assembly has new office building

    By Senator Steve Newman,
    Senate of Virginia
    President pro tempore

        The 2018 General Assembly Session opened on January 10. This year will be a longer, 60-day session where we craft a new biennial budget and tackle important issues such as healthcare, the opioid crisis, and the teacher shortage across Virginia among other issues.

  • Session begins with new governor

    By Delegate Terry L. Austin
    19th House District

        The 399th General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia convened last Wednesday, January 10, at noon. This year’s assembly is a “long” session, stretching 60 days until March 10.
        The session brings with it a new governor, Ralph Northam, and a new Speaker of the House, Kirk Cox. Mr. Northam was inaugurated last Saturday. Most recently he was our lieutenant governor; prior to that, he had been a state senator from Norfolk.

  • Section of U. S. 221 to be named in Lacey Putney’s honor

    Every four years, Virginia inaugurates a new governor.  Befitting a commonwealth with a government that predates our nation’s by more than 150 years, that inauguration is an affair filled with tradition.
        With the South Portico of Virginia’s Capitol as a backdrop, the swearing-in ceremony for a governor is very formal.  How formal?  Well, there aren’t many fancy dress events these days where gentlemen still wear gloves, but those in the Official Inaugural Committee do for the swearing-in ceremony. 

  • Oh, sure, he’s a ‘genius’ alright

        Throughout history, geniuses have always had at least one thing in common: They only acquire the label through their work and accomplishments over a long period of time.
        The current president should take note – they do not proclaim themselves geniuses, as he did recently. Yes, it was another crazy tweet from this deeply unstable man. He was responding to all the attention given lately to the question of his mental state.
