    2018 NFL Draft

    Good pick by the Giants. Penn State RB Saquon Barkley will hopefully reignite the Giants running game.

    2018 NFL Draft

    My NY Giants have the #2 pick. Will they take a QB or RB or trade the pick?
  3. After passing a 4.64% rate increase on Martinsville electric rates to city residents members of Martinsville City Council offered up their ideas of how residents can lower their electric bills. Counciwoman Sharon Brooks Hodge: City residents can unplug their refridgerater every night when they go to bed. How does this woman keep getting re-elected? Mayor Gene Teague: City residents should use less electricity. DUH!!! How about Martinsville City Council stop signing off on bad deals like the 40 year $50 Million deal with electrical provider AMP. Whoever represented the city obviously did not get a good deal for city residents as the city is buying more power on the open market. How is this possible when the city population is declining and there are fewer businesses? Finally, the real blame goes to the residents of Martinsville. Only two people showed up at the recent Council meeting to oppose the hike in electrical rates. Sign of the times in Martinsville I suppose. http://www.martinsvillebulletin.com/news/some-council-members-suggest-martinsville-residents-should-cut-back-on/article_6cfa6158-48fc-11e8-9c74-73437b196594.html

    Employment Rate Lowest in Years

    What price has been paid for the lower unemployment rate? Lets look at data from the Virginia Employment Commission. Taking date spanning from February 2018 back to February 1990 For Henry County.. In February 1990 the County had an available workforce of 31,238 with 29,689 having jobs. In Iebruary 2018 the County had an available workforce of 23,014 with 21,989 having jobs in Martinsville back in February 1990 the city had an available workforce of 7,922 with 7,445 having jobs In February 2018 the city had an available workforce of 5,5259 with 4,951 having jobs. The difference in those figures are staggering. I also have the VEC date for the years 1993, 1998, 2003, 2008 and 2013 if anyone wants to look at the numbers at 5 year intervals. Yes you have a lower rate but the losses of jobs and population in both localities is significant. if local leaders want to try and spin that in some positive way that to me is the wrong approach.

    Proposed Martinsville FY19 Budget Released

    On Tuesday night, Martinsville City Council took their first vote on the proposed FY19 city budget. It passed by a 2-1 vote. Councilman Chad martin abstained, Councilwoman Kathy Lawson was a no show at the meeting and Vice Mayor Jennifer Bowles voted against the budget. The budget does include a 4.64% increase in the electric rates. In short, Council members Gene Teague and Sharon Brooks Hodge voted to increase the electric rates for city residents. Remember that come the next election for city council.

    Democrats USSA

    Yes folks, the Democrats want to turn America into the United Socialist States of America. Bernie Sanders is out with a plan for federal jobs for all Americans complete with starting pay at $15 an hour and full health benefits. To see what a success this idea is around the world see examples in Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, etc. Who would pay these new federal salaries and health benefits? That's right, taxpayers. A vote for a democrat today is a vote for socialism. http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/384554-sanders-to-announce-proposal-to-guarantee-jobs-to-all-americans

    Comey vs. McCabe vs. Lynch

    Funny, I thought the exact same thing about CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, the NY Times and the Washington Post. Lies and liberal garbage because they do not like President Trump.

    Proposed Martinsville FY19 Budget Released

    Bill - Would you happen to know how many funds/reserve funds the City of Martinsville has and what the balance of each of these accounts are? I know you have the general fund and apparently there is a water fund as the city is pulling over $1 million from that fund and there is also a reserve fund which the city is pulling $1.6 Million from to balance the new proposed budget. Are there other funds?

    Comey vs. McCabe vs. Lynch

    There was no collusion, there is no evidence of conspiracy involving anyone with the Trump campaign. If Mueller wants to charge some Russiand because they purchased Facebook ads against Clinton then be my guest. After the millions of taxpayer $$$ he has wasted his team has to have something to show for it. Might as well charge some Russians with something. The one good thing that has come of all of this is that Americans have finally learned how linked up the Democrat Party is with the National Left Wing Media.
  10. In short, Henry County taxpayers are looking at a potential $30 million waste. As for Clearview Business Park, First Piedmont will have a place to park all of their garbage trucks. Henry County must be rolling in the dough. A new elementary school with a price tag of $25 million, Commonwealth Crossing at $30 million and a new jail at a price tag of $68 million. IMO, Henry County seems to be great for retirees. Why not develop a plan for /Senior/retirement communities in the County. This would increase the population which in turn would bring in new businesses.

    Comey vs. McCabe vs. Lynch

    BTW, the Comey memos are now out and guess what. There was no evidence of Trump colluding with the Russians and no evidence of Obstruction of Justice by President Trump. Yet another fake news story by the left wing media and democrats debunked.
  12. Eventually? That same word used could be used for the Clearview Business Park and the Rives Road Industrial Park. To think on top of $30 Million already spent, Henry County wants to spend a few more million taxpayer $$ to build a technical center at Commonwealth Crossing to train people for jobs that are not available in Henry County Henry County is going down the road of Martinsville City Council in throwing taxpayer $$$ (millions of them) on a pipe dream. Throw in another $70 million for a new jail and 426 Million for the new elementary school. Henry County is either rolling in money or going into huge debt. I think I know which of the two is more likely.

    Comey vs. McCabe vs. Lynch

    The only thing that is going nowhere is the Mueller investigation. There was no Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Everytime the media thinks they have a new story that will get rid of President Trump it goes nowhere. Trump approval stays at 50%. Stormy Daniels and her "Make America Horny Again" Tour had played the media like fools to be nothing more than free publicity for her. It is apparent that it was Comey, McCabe and others at the FBI and DOJ that were leaking information about Trump to the media in order to try and get him out. The media in collusion with the Democrat Party is running out of fake news in order to try and get President Trump and all of the shinanigans the Democrats were going under the Obama Administration is coming back to bite them. The full Inspector General's report on the DOJ and FBI is due out next month. I think Comey may also end up getting a criminal referral just like McCabe for his actions while FBI Director.

    Comey vs. McCabe vs. Lynch

    This is shaping up as a three way throw people under the bus. James Comey vs. Andy McCabe vs. Lorretta Lynch. Comey has accused McCabe of lying and McCabe has accused Comey of lying. Comey has already thrown Lynch under the bus. The best part is any charges brought by the Mueller team against Trump would involve Comey and McCabe as his key witnesses. Their credibility is shot. Today, the DOJ Inspector General issued a criminal referral to the United States Attorney General against McCabe for lying to FBI agents.
  15. Commonwealth Crossing has been opened for several months and recruiting has been going on longer than that and still no prospect has announced plans to locate there. Estimated cost of Commonwealth Crossing is $30 Million. Will Commonwealth Crossing go the same way as Clearview Business Park and the Rives Road Industrial Park?
