Board of Education candidates face off on diversity, budget

Although candidates run by district, voters throughout the county can vote for all seats on Nov. 4.

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

Anyone for another latte?

Anyone for another latte?

Nice to know people are upset with our President because he walked off a helicopter with a latte in his hand and saluted his guard with the latte in the forward and upright position. Never mind we have congressmen on so-called science subcommittees who have no idea what science is – or what the definition of “is” is.

Oh yeah, just another day

So, there we were driving at a faster-than-snail-like pace on I-270 coming into work and enjoying the slow drivers in the fast lane and the faster drivers in the slow lane. A driver in the other lane had proudly painted “Obama is the anti-christ” on his car’s back window.

Hill has career night as Paint Branch defeats Churchill

POTOMAC – Paint Branch running back Darryl Hill had a career performance Friday night against Churchill. The senior rushed for five touchdowns to lead the Panthers to a 39-29 road victory over the Bulldogs in a battle of unbeatens at Shepherd Stadium at Danver Field. In the first half alone, Hill scored on three 2-yard runs to help Paint Branch take a 21-7 lead into the locker room. “We just executed as a team,” said Hill. “We got in the end zone a couple times when we were in the red zone. That was key to the game.” Churchill went ahead 7-0 with 7:57 left in the first quarter before Paint Branch scored 21 unanswered points thanks to a balanced offensive attack. In the second half, Paint Branch quarterback Danon Davis-Cray connected with Fanta Fanta on a 25-yard touchdown and Hill added touchdown runs of 56 and nine yards to extend the Panthers lead.
