  • Helping the hungry

     

    Hunters for the Hungry announced recently that they are the recipients of a $50,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation.  

    Laura Newell-Furniss, Director of Hunters for the Hungry said, “This gift could not come at a better time.  It will allow our program to process 1,111 deer which will yield 55,550 pounds of meat (27 tons).  When processed and packaged it will yield 222,200 quarter-pound servings of lean meat for people in need here in Virginia.  

  • 'The old man and the tree'

        Some of our senior citizens while away the hours engaged in vigorous rounds of mahjong.

        Others from the silver-haired set are known to play bridge.  Still others may engage in bowling or golf.
        Then there's Clyde Roberts.
        This gentleman gets up in the wee hours, drives his tractor into the woods, then scrambles up a 24-foot ladder to a stand perched in a tree 22 feet in the air.
