A community meeting to discuss and answer questions about the plans of Longwood University and the Moton Museum to affiliate will be scheduled in the next few weeks.

July 4, 1961

There is no more American holiday than the Fourth of July celebration of our nation’s birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence.

The holiday is quintessentially US and this year we have an entire Fourth of July weekend. There will be more grills going from Thursday evening to Sunday night than you can shake a barbecued chicken leg or veggie burger at.

The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and it is a law that is already helping people

Out-Of-County Tuition Is A Good Thing For PE

The Prince Edward County School Board voted this month to resume charging a fee for out-of-county students to attend Prince Edward’s public schools.

Last week, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board—an independent administrative tribunal within the United States Patent and Trademark Office—determined, based on evidence provided by both sides of the case and on applicable law, that the term “Redskins” was “disparaging of Native Americans when used in relationship to professional football services.”  

Well, of course the name of Washington’s National Football League team is a derogatory term based on the color of a race of peoples’ skin.

The Governor's Promise

Governor McAuliffe’s announcement that he will sign the two-year state budget but veto a GOP amendment meant to lock him out of the Medicaid expansion door and throw away the key is a promise kept.

There will not be enough votes in the General Assembly to override the governor’s veto but the remaining question is whether McAuliffe’s maneuver will pass judicial review should there be a challenge. And Republicans will undoubtedly want to find out for certain whether or not a governor of Virginia can veto a so-called “language amendment.” Governor Allen, in something of a parallel move, tried to do so in 1996 and the Supreme Court shook its head.
