  • Fishburne hosts "The Blessing of the Colors"

    It’s been a practice since the time of kings, when battles were fought on horseback. Soldiers needed to be able to spot the point where their regiment was located, so they looked for their “colors,” their specific flag. And so throughout the years, it’s become a tradition, especially at military academies, to hold a “Blessing of the Colors” ceremony to kick off the school year. Waynesboro’s Fishburne Military School held theirs on Wednesday afternoon.
  • Study spells out economic impact of pipeline

Kaine's proposal makes sense

Every teacher at some point gets tested by their students. Someone will act up in class or do something because they think they can get away with it. How that teacher handles the situation most of the time sets the tone for the rest of the school year. In many ways, it’s the same with our country’s foreign policy. There comes a time when threatening speeches just aren’t enough, you need to take action. That’s why, with a few qualifiers, we support the legislation Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine introduced Wednesday, a plan that, if approved by Congress, would authorize continued military action against the Islamic State militant group.
