                    Jamestown baseball standout E.A. Woolwine named first team all-state

                    Jamestown’s E.A. Woolwine was named first team all-state among Class 4 baseball players. Woolwine, who helped lead the Eagles to the state championship game before Salem beat them on a walkoff hit, was the lone Williamsburg-area player to be named either first or second team.

                                His coaches tried talking him out of it, however tongue-in-cheek. But Julian Boatner was stubborn, and as a result, he’s ahead of schedule in his career path. Boatner, who made 161 3-pointers for William and Mary from 2011-14, is now three weeks on the job as the Tribe’s newest assistant basketball...

                                    I am glad to see the Architectural Review Board has decided to reject the bright “golden arches” color that was proposed for Midtown Row. Many people have been concerned about this project for a number of reasons, but I must applaud the board for not allowing a jarring color to be applied to such...

                                        The Virginia Constitution says, “That all power is vested in, and consequently derived from, the people, that magistrates are their trustees and servants, and at all times amenable to them.” P.T. Barnum reportedly famously said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” What woke Tommy Norment up in...
