  • Cards rebound, blast Commanders

    SPRINGFIELD - Nelson County recovered well from its first district loss in three years, plowing past Washington County, 69-40.

    Key to the win was Nelson County’s ability to take care of the basketball, coach Kelly Wood said, as the Cardinals committed only three miscues the entire game to the Commanders’ 16 turnovers.

    “That’s just remarkable,” he said. “That’s one thing about our team that’s been lacking.”

  • History proves you can't judge a book by its cover

    As France is adjusting to its newly elected president, Nicolas Sarkozy, his name has been in the headlines regarding his personal affairs nearly as frequently as his political affairs.

    The up-and-coming president showed off his flawless family at his inauguration, including his former wife’s two daughters from a previous marriage, his two sons from a previous marriage and the couple’s 10-year-old son. The four older children, tall with long, blond hair, were between 20-23 and seemingly perfect at the time of his initiation as president last May.

  • Glad to be back in the U.S. where the water is free

    I’ve been back in the United States for less than 24 hours and I’m suffering from some wicked jetlag. I spent the last two weeks in the Central European time zone, and my body still thinks it’s there.

    When I’m this tired, I tend to focus on the negative, so I’m writing about some of the things that annoyed me during my time abroad. When I have readjusted to Eastern Standard Time, I’ll write a column on the things I loved about France and Italy, because there were many.
