Local teams prepare for holiday tournament

The Thomas Dale Lady Knights have something left to prove. Last year, there were many accomplishments.

Roads: Residents could thank J.W. Nunnally for them

The cold is upon us. On Saturday, winter taunted us, threatening a snowy season and a pothole-filled spring. After each year’s blast of northern aggression, our roads present a challenge to the Virginia Department of Transportation and those of us who play dodgem with craters and heaved pavement.
