        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.

                Humane society fundraiser combines barks, beer

                In the wake of the recent hurricanes and wildfires bombarding the nation, it’s a good opportunity to reflect on how we might be able to help improve the lives of our animal friends, who are equally impacted by such events. A fundraiser at the Virginia Beer Company Tuesday night sought to raise...

                    Most certainly, the Chamber Music Society of Williamsburg’s second program of the season was highly refreshing and different. Not the usual string quartet or piano quintet or variations thereof, Ensemble 4.1 was welcomed breath of fresh air, made more evident by the fact that four of the five members...

                                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....

                                    Freedom of speech used to seem so reasonable. Not easy, but reasonable. Freedom of speech meant everyone got their say.
