Winners and friends

From the standpoint of statewide politics, it’s pretty obvious who came away on Election Day as Virginia’s big winners.

Hooray and back at it

Weeks ago, back when the promise of stirring victory or crushing disappointment hung in the air in equal measure, the audience at the School Board’s October meeting at Sydnor Jennings Elementary heard two theories on how the vote on the 1 percent sales tax referendum might turn out.

Crunch time

Let’s imagine a world where the sales tax referendum fails.

Hiding in plain sight

We’re a year out from the 2020 election and voters deciding for themselves who should lead the United States over the next four years, but in the meantime it’s getting pretty hard to ignore that our current Commander-in-Chief is losing it on a daily basis.

How did we get here?

A hardship story from Southside Virginia surfaced in the news a week ago, and this time it’s the world-at-large, not our small corner of it, that came off looking worse for the telling.

Upon further review

Remember a few months back, when it was humbly suggested in this space that Del. James Edmunds ought to have a statue erected in his honor for pushing the Halifax County sales tax referendum through the General Assembly?
