        Drew's big night leads Smithfield to 34-7 win over Warhill

        Smithfield High senior Willie Drew could’ve been forgiven had he been distracted a bit in the Bay Rivers District game Friday against Warhill.

        Lafayette High extended its Bay Rivers District-record winning streak to 47 games Thursday with a 45-6 win over York at Bailey Field.

                        Williamsburg Art Gallery exhibit highlights religious iconography

                        Steeped in tradition yet a wholly unique collection of art, the Williamsburg Art Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrates the religious iconography crafted at the hands of one Greek Orthodox nun — although she’s quick to redirect creative credit to a higher power. “It’s sacred art.

                                The American condition has come to a state where, too often, the best, most capable among us do not present themselves for elective office, and American voters willfully elect some of the worst who do. We can do better. Heather Cordasco seeks the 93rd District seat in the state House of Delegates....

                                        So many issues on my mind. I must get them down on paper.
