  • Lady Cavaliers continue domination

    The Jefferson Forest girl’s soccer team has dominated this season in every facet possible. Finishing a perfect 16-0-0 and allowing just two goals all season the Cavaliers entered the Seminole District Tournament as the top seed and will enter the 4D Regional Tournament as the top seed as well.
        

    Heritage got the honors of being the Lady Cavaliers first victim in the Seminole District Tournament and Jefferson Forest wasted no time in scoring. The Lady Cavaliers scored four goals in the first 10 minutes of play.

  • Soccer: A pair of hat tricks lifts Liberty

    Two is better than one. For the Lady Minutemen Delaney Snead and Maria Young proved that philosophy true by each recording a hat trick in Liberty’s 7-2 victory over Amherst County in the opening round of the Seminole District Tournament.
        

    Snead had run absolutely wild on the Lady Lancers’ defense. Liberty scored 4-0 victories in each of the regular season meetings between the two teams. In those two games Snead scored five goals.

        What’s the nicest thing you can give a working wife with children on Mother’s Day?  Answer—a week off, a week away from alarm clocks, cooking, cleaning, laundry, lunches, and endless to-do lists.  I have given my wife this gift for forty years.  What she did with it was surprising.

  • Fighting back against Trump’s poison

        I hope the “Trump Christians” noticed that their “God’s choice” president was directly caught in a blatant lie this past week. Rudy Giuliani only had to speak once and proved that Trump has been lying all along about Stormy Daniels.

  • Republicans need a new party symbol

        The great advantage I have over Rick Howell, who writes The Liberal Agenda, is that I’m not a political party hack. As a good “Democratic” Party activist, he is bound to take a “my party, right or wrong” attitude, defending whatever the party does.
