Blacksburg High School track and field athletes are fighting the elements to prepare for state tournament competition.
For those who might have missed it, last week’s column discussed efforts to protect the Constitution and take action against the President’s recent actions on immigration. I and others in Congress believe that these actions were improper, and that the President does not have the authority to take the actions he took on immigration. These […]
