  1. Once the TCSB closed Pocy (RIP) , further consolidation just didn't make sense in Tazewell County. That was 2008 and nothing has changed significantly to this day. There remains three distinct population centers spread fairly evenly being served by three high schools along the primary corridor. Like the rest of SWVA, I'd expect to see a continual decline in the overall county population but nothing to warrant consolidation in the foreseeable future.
  2. Black Diamond HS Elk/Thundering Herd or Miners Black/Silver or Black/Gold
  3. So I read the $235.6 million was to actually replace Hurley High and also either replace or flood-proof the Buchanan Career and Technology Center (The new high school could be in Hurley or an alternate location) To the residents of Hurley, Congratulations, you're getting a brand new high school! And the best part, it's only 25 miles and 43 minutes away from your current school. Sincerely, Your neighbors in Grundy
  4. I'm seeing a place named Poplar Gap Park, a county park that was built in 2001 on a former strip mining site. The park appears to contain ballfields (football, baseball, softball) along with a fairgrounds area. Is this the proposed location? @olewave mentioned Corps of Engineers funding. Is Buchanan in-line for COE funding similar to DIckenson Co. when they built Ridgeview? If so, it's a no-brainer. It's akin to your school system winning the Powerball.
  5. This was a meme Trump tweeted just after the impeachment vote. I'm not a fan of all his Twitter activity, but this response was absolutely genius. This is Madison Ave. level brilliance. Simple yet profound. Trump doesn't have to spend millions to re-energize his base for 2020. The Democrats are doing it for free.
  6. I wish more HS football players wrestled. I don't think many players or coaches fully appreciate the benefits. I would dare say much of Spurlin's football success ties back to things learned on the mat from his dad. https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2016/July/21/How-Wrestling-Builds-Better-Football-Players
  7. This is game is a blast...unless you're from Galax or Riverheads
  8. Dixon clearly made some adjustments at half. Roll Tide!
  9. I hope I'm wrong, but I fear consolidation will doom the chances of any SW Virginia school from matching or surpassing Powell Valley's eight titles.
  10. I think I read about this place somewhere.
  11. I'd like to go with Wise Central, but apparently Luke Owens is not that good of a coach.
  12. Patrick Henry will feel like they're playing against the entire Galaxy.
  13. I found nothing specific requiring accessible seating on both the home and visitors sides. The links below address the percentage of accessible seating in relation to overall capacity. It could come down to a local building officials' determination if the stadium is compliant. VHSL has broad power and could order a venue change if it didn't deem a facility suitable. This relocation could occur even if a facility had been determined to have met the minimum ADA requirement. IIRC, the DOJ is the top enforcement agency pertaining to ADA by working complaints through the court system. Smyth Co Schools made a number of needed upgrades as a result of a suit. https://aluminumbleachers.com/aluminum-bleachers-ada-compliance-issues-need-addressed/ https://aluminumbleachers.com/ada-bleachers-wheelchair-access-disabilities/
