    I spent the first five years of my life as a resident of Doran Bottom (corner of Kirby Road and what is now Mill Ave). I might have some influence with current owner. I mean, it's not waterfront. But still within reasonable walking distance if you cut through the old horse pasture.

    School Systems have very little to marginal effect on education outcomes. Home environment does. Garbage in = Garbage out. Quality in = Quality out. If your school system has students from quality homes your school system is going to look great. If your school system has kids from homes that don't give a damn about education or students that are more concerned where there next meal is coming from or who their mother is sleeping with that night then your outcomes are going to be poor. A good teacher MIGHT make a difference in one child a year. Maybe. I was a teacher at one time. This is how I know.

    At Holden Beach right now! In laws own a place on the island. Been coming here almost 25 years. Love it as a family destination. Close enough to get to Myrtle...without having to be at Myrtle!

    I know how this goes haha. I was blessed to have a great childhood despite a divorce when I was in kindergarten. I make sure every day to remember that time is precious and you can’t take money with you when you go. I don’t put us in bad situations — but we also like to take our trips and make those memories while we have time. Parenthood truly is the best thing that’s happened to me, and that goes for both my biological son and my stepson. They’re great.

    I don't think how much time he will coach means much....they were simply running out of time to hire a coach....he stepped up for their program IMO As I said I'll believe it when I see it

    I love visiting any place where wild ponies outnumber people, such as the Eastern Shore, Grayson Highlands...

    We live in MB (Carolina Forest area). Saw that story on the news last night but there was no mention of the AR-15.

    I read on Facebook where a family was riding around on a golf cart in Cherry Grove and a car came by them and started egging them. They also had a 5 month old baby on board. When witnesses tried to chase the car down, they allegedly pulled an AR-15 on them. I'll stick to Surfside for now. Speaking of Surfside, swing by Bubba's Fish Shack and try the blackened Mahi. You're welcome in advance.

    The In Laws hit that mark of where they got tired of setup/breakdown to leave so they purchased a villa in Pirateland. It was very handy last year as I probably took 7 beach trips.

    You want beach, go to the Eastern Shore. Bay side has calm water, ocean side is stunningly beautiful. But best if all, there's no one over there

    The ocean is the ocean, whether there’s 100 people or 1,000,000 people. Personally, I’d rather avoid places like Myrtle.

    Wasn’t a fan of the Dead Dog Saloon. I’m not sure what I was expecting when eating there but I did not expect a bunch of pictures of dead dogs on the walls.

    Yes. Sometimes there are 7 days between games. But once a year there is something like 250 days between games.

    Don't know why we aren't playing them.... probably our moron AD's decision

    I don't know about being "very" happy with the hire. He seemed like the best candidate of the ones that were being interviewed. It is yet to be seen how it will turn out. He will be welcomed and I know the kids are waiting to interact with him (starting this week!) and interested to see how he will be. The good news is there are kids that wouldn't play for Saunders that say they will play now which is good. Crist has lots of work to do to rebuild the rec leagues. The numbers there are dwindling and HC of the senior rec team is not knowledgeable so kids don't develop and get discouraged and don't play at the next level. The rec leaders have been made aware but choose to not make any changes. I think Saunders tried to be engaged in the rec programs but wasn't able to have much if any influence. The basketball culture does interfere with football. It's not intentional but it does. Some of that was due to negative perception of Saunders so Crist will have a chance to change that. All of the hires haven't been great, for example a change at AD could be a huge upgrade.

    We continued to "camp" three or four times a year for another 6 years without issue. We didn't go anywhere more than a couple hours from home though. We sold the camper in 2014 and haven't given it a second thought. Given the ages of my kids at that time, the process of packing, loading, pulling, set-up, breakdown and return was more labor intensive than a vacation should be. Just not something I ever got enjoyment out of. I prefer AirBnB near quality golf courses!

    Bingo. We stay in Surfside. The only draw to the middle of MB for us is a trip to Dirty Don's. For River City Cafe I end up at the Surfside or more commonly the Murrells Inlet location (It tends to be the fastest to get a seat at). Most places I eat at are from Surfside to Murrells Inlet anyway.

    Not trying to be negative about Loris when I quoted you. Just pointing out what a great school system we have here. Money may not be good. But the atmosphere is 2nd to none. Went off on a tangent, I guess.

    Tazewell County schools ranked # 10 in the state of Virginia in reading and math proficiency. (2019 Data). Reading and Math proficiency both > 90%. (High Schools) 93% Graduation rate. Check it on the VDOE web page. Tazewell High School in particular was 2nd to only George Mason for a school of their size. Also, Virginia > South Carolina. I would be willing to bet that Mance will be back after one season with Tarter at the helm. His work will be cut out for him. Tarter will keep the ship going in the right direction.

    Not me! Haven’t been to Myrtle since my 13 year old daughter was a newborn. Have no plans of ever going back. We have, however, been to Topsail and Edisto. I could live without Topsail but Edisto is amazing. The whole island is a nature preserve. Walk the beaches with giant sea turtles with roped off areas where the eggs are buried. Either way, I don’t have the concern of having everything I own being stolen while my family walks along the beach as happened 13 years ago in Dirty Myrtle. To which, the police response was along the lines of “well, you have insurance. No need for us to be here!”

    I think it’s exactly the opposite. There’s a strong gang presence in NMB and MB that preys on the non-residents. Couple that with the drug trafficking, which is propagated by those who reside there, I have to strongly disagree.

    The folks here in Radford are very happy with the hiring of Crist. It's weird, but Radford (the City of) and School Board often get these things right. Call it good people running the show or luck, but we usually get the right coaches for the job, and we usually get the right teachers for our students. I'm not trying to give a pat on the back here, just saying that our School Board/Leaders are actually pretty good, pretty sharp, just decent people that make pretty good leadership decisions, and that's largely based on having a good culture. I think Crist will be welcomed in with open arms and that he will excel at Radford. Radford's football culture is well entrenched. Crist is a sharp dude, but at Radford, he's not going to have to change the culture or build up the youth feeder leagues, or have run in's with the baseball or basketball coach, He's going to do well imo and the hire was a slam dunk for the Bobcats.

    This will be a much better game than it has been in years past. It is usually big east Tennessee schools and the coal fields vs the rest of SWVA and Sullivan county.

    Speaking as a VHS alum and former off/on Bristol, VA resident, the issue wasn't and still doesn't seem to be coaching. It was the culture. The culture there basically looked at football as sport for the kids to play while waiting on baseball season to roll around. From the little leagues up, if they put 1/2 the effort and resources into football that they at least used to baseball, VA High could easily be a Radford type clone in deep SWVA. A whole lot of similarities there between the two as far as talent base goes. It's the support and growth structure that isn't up to par.
