  • Readers' Hotline 10/24/12

    Put a bow on it
    I’m calling about the Galax garbage pickup. I am one of many whose garbage did not pick up last week. We were left with our garbage sitting on the street and we are elderly and have a hard time getting it out there in the first place. I was wondering if the city would like us to giftwrap our garbage before we put it out.

  • Cavs top Devils 3-0

    HILLSVILLE –– A technical glitch with the public address system caused a lengthy delay in the customary pre-match introductions and the playing of the national anthem, but only until the Carroll County student section broke forth into an unpolished but heartfelt rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.

    The Cavaliers themselves kept humming right along through the rest of the night.

    Carroll County was for the most part in control from start to finish and posted a surprisingly easy three-set win over once-beaten Grayson County, 25-22, 25-17, 25-19.
