    A dream season shattered to a devastating end on Tuesday night for the Jefferson Forest girls’ soccer team. In the Class 4 state quarterfinal game, the previously undefeated Lady Cavaliers lost to the Loudoun County Raiders 4-0. Loudoun would progress to end up winning the Class 4 state championship.

    Despite retiring the final 14 batters during Friday’s 3A State Semifinal game against Cave Spring, Liberty’s magical playoff run came to an end in a 3-0 loss.

     

    With the Liberty fans that traveled nearly an hour looking on from right outside the fence, Head Coach Mike Thompson and the Liberty softball team huddled up and embraced one final time in the 2018 season.

     

  • Politics makes strange bedfellows

    By Lee Walker

        On Saturday, I attended the 5th District GOP meeting in Nelson County.  37 members of Republican “Leadership” were picking the GOP Nominee for Congress to replace Congressman Tom Garett, who due to personal reasons, “an alcohol problem,” had decided to retire.

  • The GOP’s truly awful Senate candidates

        Virginia Republicans will go to the polls next week to pick a challenger to the popular, talented U.S. Senator Tim Kaine. They have a choice of three candidates, at least two of whom are ridiculous options.
         Even as a proud and partisan Democrat, I miss the days in Virginia when we could count on Republican candidates to have integrity, experience and good judgment. We knew they were qualified, and we knew the state wouldn’t be embarrassed if they were elected.

  • Remembering D-Day

        I hope I remembered to bring my sunscreen and a hat. Today is the National D-Day Memorial’s annual commemoration of D-Day and I’ll be up at the Memorial covering it. Hopefully, the weather will be bright and sunny, and as long as I remembered the aforementioned items, I’ll be OK. If not, I will get fried.
        I also hope all of you will head up to our hilltop memorial for the commemoration. We are truly blessed to have a world class memorial right in our backyard.

  • Tax exempt

        It’s unfortunate that a county official would state that a ministry such as Renewanation serves no public need. That comment was made last week by County Attorney Patrick Skelley while the supervisors were considering whether to grant the organization a real estate tax exemption for its home office located in Hardy.
        Thankfully, however, a majority of the supervisors didn’t follow Skelley’s recommendation to oppose the tax exemption status.

  • Bedford remembers

        This Friday, June 8, the town of Bedford and the National D-Day Memorial Foundation will unveil the first two of six historical markers of the “Bedford Remembers” campaign.
        The first plaque dedication will take place at 5 p.m. along W. Main St. at the newly installed platform in front of Smyth Companies. Those gathered will then process to Centertown Park for the unveiling of the second plaque.
