      • Who should earn Runner of the Year honors?

        Golf and tennis have their players-of-the-year honors. Baseball, football, basketball and ice hockey have most valuable player awards at the end of their pro seasons. So who would be the runner-of-the-year for the 2017 area road racing season, if that honor was added to the numerous awards (108...

            Jamestown is expected to contend for both girls and boys team titles this weekend at the Virginia High School League state championships. Jamestown’s girls, in Class 4, will enter the state meet as four-time defending champions. But mounting pressure to repeat and new competition in former 3A champion...

                Williamsburg Christian players hit scoring milestones

                The scoring milestones are nice, but for a trio of Williamsburg Christian Academy seniors, another state championship would be even better. Cle’von Greene, along with twins Da’Shawn and Ra’Shawn Cook, were all honored before the Eagles 89-49 rout of Broadwater Academy Monday on Senior Night. It...

                    “Metamorphoses,” the College of William and Mary’s latest theatrical production, combines timeless Roman stories updated for the modern era with a distinctly physical form of storytelling and eight tons of onstage water.

                                When it comes to fairy tale ballets, one of the most popular, maybe even the most, is “Sleeping Beauty,” choreographed by Marius Petipa back in 1890 and set to a lush score by Tchaikovsky, widely considered his best endeavor for its sophistication and maturity. While many declare “Nutcracker” and...

                                    As a former longtime world language teacher with Williamsburg-James City County Schools, I was dismayed and disheartened by the one-sided and inaccurate report presented to the School Board regarding the supposed expansion of world languages in the upcoming year. This proposal is so important that...

                                      • Comey should not teach at W&M

                                        I agree with Charles Misak’s letter on Feb. 14 asking the president of the College of William and Mary, Taylor Reveley, to withdraw his invitation to former FBI Director James Comey to provide lectures on ethics at the college. As Misak mentioned, Comey made a highly questionable decision in giving...

                                            I applaud Chris Mayfield’s column “Rep. Wittman must answer for votes” in The Virginia Gazette, Feb. 10, and would like to add another example of one of Congressman Wittman’s votes that demonstrates his failure to represent the interest and safety of the constituents in his district. Wittman voted...

                                                The desire of some in James City County to keep a substantial portion of open farmland is sentimentally attractive — but how realistic and practical is that? Open land is simply the most obvious part of the agriculture/dairy industry. In James City, where does one now buy or get repairs for a large...
