A cardinal perched on a snow-covered limb might be sending New Year's greetings--except he's probably too cold to sing. (Photo by Linda Hylton)
color gas $1.93
Gas prices are reaching their lowest level in years, encouraging local residents to "fill 'er up" and wonder how long this state of affairs will last. This photo was snapped at Howell's Grocery on Tuesday. (Photo by Linda Hylton)

color robin
An early robin seemed like a better harbinger of spring than the traditional rodent of Groundhog Day (and besides, we couldn't find a groundhog.) (Photo by Linda Hylton) 2/4/2015
color county spelling bee
Patrick County Public Schools held its annual Spelling Bee on Thursday, February 5 at Patrick County High School. Twelve students from throughout the county represented each of the seven schools in the division. Finalists were as follows: in third place was Haukken Thompson (right), a fifth grader at Blue Ridge Elementary School; second place went to Jordan Haas (left), a sixth grader at Meadows of Dan Elementary School; and the winner was Taylor Hopkins, a seventh grader at Woolwine Elementary School. The winning word was "ingratiate." Taylor will go on to represent Patrick County in the regional spelling bee which will be held at the Milton Rhodes Center of the Arts in Winston-Salem, N.C., on March 22. 2/11/15
color dehart park/mtns
IT'S FEBRUARY--and that means almost constant changes in the weather. This week, the snow started falling Monday and kept it up through the night, leaving four to six inches in Patrick County and closing schools and businesses. Pictured above is a panoramic shot of DeHart Park, the college and businesses, all blanketed in snow, with mountains in the background. (Photo by Linda Hylton) 2/18/15
