    The future is bright for the Lady Hawks’ basketball program. The seventh-grade team had a perfect season, finishing with a 28-0 record.

    The team started its season with an overtime victory at Nelson County. That was the closest any team came to beating them as they ran away with most of their games. The Lady Hawks’ victories averaged 21 points per game.

  • Lower prices at the pump lead to a giddy glow

    Something extraordinary happened Monday that gave me a warm feeling all over.

    Despite the fact it was a cold December morning and I experienced a delightfully giddy glow, it has nothing to do with the Christmas season.

    Although, giving it a second thought, it will help make the season merry and bright.

    It was a common event which took place in an ordinary way but had a very happy ending.
