Sorry if this post is a bit bigger than usual, but I was just too busy to post yesterday. However, there’s still nine stories you should know about:
-State Senator Ken Cuccinelli stumped in Staunton at Shoney’s Restaurant Wednesday night. Although the AG race isn’t until next year, I encourage all Republican activists to start looking at the three candidates.
-Poultry growers in the Valley are speaking out against ethanol subsidies, saying that funding ethanol puts the crunch on their feed prices. Feed costs make up about 70% of their production overhead.
-Bob Goodlatte is crushing Sam Rasoul in the money race, outraising him roughly 5 to 1.
-The Virginia Cooperative Extension showed off new equipment in Mount Jackson that injects manure and nitrogen into the ground rather than spreading it on top.
-Tim Craig of the Washington Post discusses some counties in the state that may be the localities that decide November’s election.
-There will be no new Christian high school in the county, at least not this fall.
-The Obama campaign is opening offices in Harrisonburg AND Winchester.
-New Market will have a meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday to go over their waste disposal plans.
-Delegate Todd GIlbert visited Harmony Hall last night. Harmony Hall, a 1754 stone house owned by Belle Grove Plantation, will be one of just a handful of historic houses opened to the public in Shenandoah County when it is completed within the next decade.
