As lieutenant governor, Sam Rasoul could bring significant economic resources to our region. As a progressive Democrat, he could raise our position relative to the “blue” parts of Virginia. Democrats should support Sam Rasoul in the primary.
Trump has GOP senators under a shadow of fear. How many have received death threats from Trumpists who still believe the election was stolen? Voting to acquit might save their skin for now but if it leaves us all open to future threats, what have we allowed our country to become?
CHILHOWIE, Va. — During the calm of the morning as the sun makes an entrance along the horizon, Terri Davis can often be found greeting the da…
Mr. Griffith, you swore to uphold our Constitution, not a president’s ambitions. The support you gave to Trump’s false conspiracy claims culminated in mob violence, an attack on the Capitol itself, in the name of Trump. Your complicity should be noted.
The greatness of Patrick Mahomes covers up a lot of warts. The Chiefs offensive line needs an infusion of talent. Davis is a system-proof, plug-and-play starter at the next level and a potential All-Pro. Top needs: WR, OL, Edge
Davenport & Co. LLC announced Thursday that it has opened a branch in Abingdon with the hiring of William “Will” Davis as senior vice president–investments.
We grew up reading that America was different from Russia because of our better government. I would not want to live in a country run by Vladimir Putin. But it seems more possible now.
\CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — It took Virginia four scheduled opponents to actually get to start their season, and four quarters to hit their stride…
A North Carolina driver faces a number of charges after authorities say he struck another vehicle in Sullivan County on Sunday night, left the scene and sped nearly 40 miles over the speed limit.
Roman Griffin Davis is already a Hollywood star at 12-years-old and just one acting role down.
Her name was Gianna Maria Onore Bryant. The world, now and forever, knows her as Gigi. Her dad, Kobe Bryant, called her Mambacita. He was Mamba, of course, and she was going to be basketball’s female version of him.
This city's south side was devastated when a highway section went up. Now that there's talk of taking it down, residents think they should be protected -- and compensated.
A video of a black animal getting a nice scratch is spreading quickly around the internet as people take sides in yet another great debate.
Mueller’s testimony to Congress made it clear: It’s time for an impeachment inquiry. Hearing Mueller describe the extent of Trump’s crimes and corruption in his own words convinced me that Congress can no longer stand idly by.
College seems expensive. The average graduate of the college where I teach, Emory & Henry, has about $27,000 in debt. That can take years to pay off, which is depressing when, with a bachelor’s degree, some still struggle to find a well-paying job. Of course, many factors affect that, one being geography: If you are committed to living far from any city, many good jobs are out of reach. So investing in college may not be worth it. But the average person with a bachelor’s degree will earn double what the average high school graduate earns — over their lifetime.
When we vote to elect our representatives, we assume our vote counts as much as the next person’s. Unfortunately, the politicians in power (this has been true for both parties) in Virginia have drawn the districts to reduce the power of voters who vote “the other way.”

“I’ve been a Tennessee fan since I was born,” Sullivan East lineman Dayne Davis said. “My first outfit was orange and white.”
We will never be free of history. There will always be the echoes of whips, and tree branches scarred by ropes and the ghosts of bodies swaying in the air. America’s darkest chapters should haunt us all. They should also teach us about the cost of bigotry — the cost to our humanity, the cost to our souls. But there will always be the echoes of small moments in our history, too. Such as an afternoon when a man, moved by a story, visited a family and — knowing the impact his visit would have, since he held the highest office in the land — told them that prejudice and hatred should not exist in America. We need to remember stories such as this, so that we can find our way back to who we are supposed to be.
Some powerful corporations are more worried about their profits than our health, so, since taking office, the Trump administration has done all it could to reverse the gains of the EPA, and has convinced lots of working people that regulations are crippling our economy. Don’t fall for that. Companies can and do make good profits even when regulated by the EPA. The studies set in motion by President Bush have demonstrated that. Our health and the health of our children are greatly aided by the EPA. Our health and the health of others in our community are and always will be more important than short-term profits.
