    Jamestown soccer ends regular season undefeated; Meese earns team records

            Friday’s lacrosse semifinal match between Jamestown and Lafayette is about as perfect a matchup as you can hope for in high school sports — crosstown rivals, one team full of experienced seniors, the other full of promising young talent and a drive toward a state title at stake.

                            After 15 years with the WSO Janna Hymes says goodbye to Williamsburg

                            Soon the Kimball Theatre stage will fill with musicians tuning their instruments for a final moment in the spotlight with the woman who has given them direction for the past 15 years.

                                The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra’s last concert of the 2018-19 season, Masterworks 5, has a sentimental air to it — both in the music choices and the grand finale feel. Janna Hymes, conductor and music director of the WSO, said this concert will be filled with thrilling pieces, including “Adagietto”...

                                    I couldn’t agree more with the points made by Douglas Wood in his Letter to the Editor, published in the May 15 Virginia Gazette. A lead article in Thursday's Daily Press sports section clearly outlines the decimation of the College of William and Mary’s 2019-2020 basketball team. This is certainly...

                                            The May 19 Daily Press front page article about Dr. John Broadwater taking another look at sunken British ships in the York River from the Battle of Yorktown was of great interest to me, from my role as the former Director of Buildings and Grounds at Eastern State Hospital. I was hired in 1979...

                                                In light of the ongoing struggle about the place of guns in the United States, I went back to the original 2nd Amendment.
