Its a tad interesting what you can or are forced to watch while sitting in a hospital for hours on end. Gotta say folks, I am a bit worn out. But my son is doing better. He is scheduled for more surgery on April 10th. World events become meaningless when your child is hurting.

To me Bill Mahar is foul mouthed and I don't agree with Rush's statements or at least how he said them. But I do agree that I don't want the government paying for women's birth control especially if they can afford an expensive school such as the one that girl was from. I would agree to birth control for poor women - might cut down on abortions.

Sam,

Glad to see this latest post. I've been wondering about your son and how things have been going.

As a parent, I do agree that everything else pales in comparison to the pain and illness of your child.......no matter how old they are. That is the center of the universe and I wouldn't change it.........it is what matters most.

Glad to see you posting and glad to hear your son is doing better. Keeping you and yours in my thoughts.

What's all this about the government paying for contraception?

The actual regulatory requirement at issue is over whether Health Insurance providers include it in their coverage.

The idea of this initiative being paid for with tax dollars is simply more tripe ginned up by the same credible folks who talk about death panels, religious repression, moon bases and the justifiable shooting of teenage potheads.

Coondog :dontknow:

Coondog feels there are already too damned many people running around here, anyway. Contraception (and, yes, abortion) affects primarily a demographic commonly viewed by conservatives as detestable at best .... the spawn of which will either end up avoting for democrats or in jail. While the government is not now paying for these contraceptive measures, I think it should....preventing conception of these future reprobates in the first place is a legitimate exercise under the auspices of promoting the general welfare and insuring domestic tranquility.

Local Newspapers?

Postby BusMan » 2012 Oct 02 14:04

Hello all. First timer here. I'm new to the area and was wondering what local newspapers are published and how often.

I've found the website for The News-Gazette, which appears to me to be a weekly.

I also see that W&L has something over at The Rockbridge Report.

What am I missing? Are there any papers published on Saturdays?

Thanks all.

The Advocate (Monthly)

The Roanoke Times (Daily, but not much local)

Richmond Times Disgrace (ibid)

Gossip (24-7)

Racing Forms (never)

Thanks, Coondog. Someone told me that a particular photograph I'm looking for was in the Saturday edition of the local paper. Any idea what that might be? Does BV have their own paper?

The News Gazette bought what was considered to be the BV paper (although it really wasn't).

The 'Saturday' paper they distribute free is called the 'Weekender', which they throw out rolled up in a plastic bag in either the driveway or the bushes depending on trajectory.

If you need a photograph from an edition, you might inquire at their offices on Nelson Street next to the State Theater. Perhaps they'll provide a glossy?

Barn the horses, hold your hat, and sit down.

The News-Gazette has done it again, standing bravely against the world in a no-holds-barred editorial in favor of flowers.

I kid you not, May 22 issue.

. Thanks for the info, Fangz, new to me.

That newspaper today, . Coincidentally, the front page business news today is that printing company itself, apparently undergoing some ownership changes. A key part of its business nowadays is printing postage stamps and bank notes!

Occasionally I still read what was my "" for a year.
