Auctioneer recalls tobacco’s heydey

Back when tobacco, the “golden leaf” of Virginia was a celebrated crop, and tobacco auctions were a festive occasion, no one was more celebrated than the market auctioneer.


Comets win season opener, 38-18

HCHS had success in all three phases of football and repelled a gritty effort by Patrick County Friday night.





How many more?

So: How many more times are we going to tell ourselves that nothing could have been done to prevent a gun tragedy?

Nowhere to go but up

While the rest of the world goes haywire seemingly on an hour-by-hour basis, this has been the summer of hope and expectation for us fans of the Chicago Cubs. Last seen winning the World Series in 1908, the Cubs may not be November contenders just yet, but terrific young players are percolating up through the system, the everyday lineup has been bolstered by canny trades and free agent signings, and the future is genuinely bright. If the season ended today, the Cubs would be in the playoffs — stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Yankees fans.

Perspectives of time

In the wake of the murders at Charleston's Emanuel CME church, you might think that catering to neo-Confederate sentiment would be a bad idea. State Senator Frank Ruff seems to think otherwise.

Twists and turns

We’re now in month three of the Trump Trolls America world tour and lookie here, Fox News has a new poll out: Donald Trump leads with 25 percent of the Republican vote, Ben Carson has 12 percent and Ted Cruz 10 percent. Add it up and you get 47 percent. How is it that 47 percent constantly pops up in right-wing numerology like in a bad horror movie where the same Tarot card is pulled out of the deck and everyone flees the room screaming in terror?

Last titan standing

Ever since last week’s Republican presidential debate Donald Trump has been saying mean things about Fox’s Megyn Kelly and some people seem to be mighty upset about it. I don’t understand why. Seriously. I mean, it’s not like Trump’s core complaint is untrue. He took to Twitter afterwards to complain about Kelly’s determination to embarrass him in front of a huge TV audience by bringing up his past statements, all quite crude, about women. Did the other candidates receive the same rough treatment from the Fox debate crew? I don’t think so.

So long, Angels

Well, that was fun.
