‘Arguing with God’ on tour

The Stone Hill Theatrical Foundation of Flint Hill recently staged a performance of "Arguing with God" at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Flint Hill's Hugh Hill not only played Moses but also directed the performance.
Rough landing

A two-vehicle accident involving a motorcycle occurred around 2:30 Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Highways 211 and 522 in Sperryville. The rider on the Harley-Davidson was medevaced by helicopter, which touched down at the Sperryville Volunteer Fire Department.
Three cheers for Boots ‘n Beer

“Done,” now writes Garrick Giebel of the Warrenton-based Boots ‘n Beer Hiking club, which descended on the trash heap on President’s Day. The Park provided trash bags, equipment and a truck to pick it all up.”
It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature

This week’s April-like temperatures have certainly confused Mother Nature. Kathy McNitt of Castleton was enjoying a leisurely winter stroll earlier this week and came upon this beautiful budding wild rose.
Recess doesn’t mean disappear

We read Congressman Garrett’s letter in last week’s paper and would like to discuss some points. Unfortunately he has not held nor has he committed to holding a live town hall meeting with his constituents during this recess week.
You call this February?

A balmy President’s Day holiday weekend brought larger-than-normal crowds to Shenandoah National Park on Saturday, where a long line of vehicles crept through just one lane of the Thornton Gap Entrance.
School news for Feb. 23

Big congrats to Rapp Varsity Wrestling, coming home from the state tourney in Salem with one new State Champion and seven other state placers; and Saturday (Feb. 25) the Scholastic Bowl teams travels to Williamsburg for the State finals.
Pave paradise?

I love Rappahannock. It suits my soul....We stopped in Gainesville a few days ago. Amazing how fast that community developed. Blazing lights replace the stars; the American need for shopping and entertainment evidenced everywhere.
The easy way out

Mr. Garrett’s lack of willingness to address the questions sent to him via Facebook and his avoidance of real answers shows me that this type of town hall meeting is a cowardly way to address the issues of his constituents.
Garrett toes the Trump line

Will he compel Sheriff Connie Compton to harass law-abiding immigrants coming into our community? What is he doing about student debt crushing our families? Or the unfunded state mandates driving up our property taxes?

Merry Moo heading over yonder?

Initially Merry Moo Market in Flint Hill would be closing its doors at the end of February. But the owner announced it will remain open “for the foreseeable future” until construction begins at the future location in Marshall.
Mini-golf and Lions’ largesse

This Saturday, Feb. 18, the hallways of Rappahannock County High School will be transformed into a mini-golf resort via the award winning Panther Band’s Indoor Mini-Golf FUN-raiser.
Kudos to Boots n Beer

Our local hiking club, Boots n Beer hiked the trail last Saturday. I showed the others the trash site. We frequently use Shenandoah National Park and on President's Day, Feb. 20, we plan to collect the trash.
