New newspaper for the Roanoke Area !!

Nov. 8, 2007

Accept no imitations. No recycled Roanoke Times columnists here. And absolutely NO subscription cost! This is THE newspaper Christians and conservatives have been talking about and waiting for.

THE ROANOKE SUN "Roanoke's News Weekly", hit newsstands every Friday!!

What is it? The Sun is a weekly digest of the area's big news stories with analysis you can trust.
It's a digest of important wire stories The Roanoke Times refuses to print

And, best of all, it's FREE, thanks to the advertisers who support it. Each Friday, look for The Sun at Krogers, Wal-Marts, Food Lions, Famous Anthony's and many other locations from Botetourt to Rocky Mount, from Salem to Smith Mountain Lake.

The first issue was released on Friday, Nov. 9 In that issue, you found:
--What's behind the mysterious Byrd Flu?
-- How did Ralph Smith beat Dick Cranwell?
--An exclusive interview with Fox News' Ollie North!
--Why are Bibles being banned from the 2008 Olympics?

In case you're wondering, the name "The Sun" was chosen to keep the publication's orientation pointing to True North: The Son of God, Jesus Christ, in whom all things hold together. It's also a reminder of the truth of Psalm 84:11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Look for it Friday. And spread the word to everyone you know who's frustrated with liberal reporting of the local media and to everyone who has a business that needs quality advertising. THE SUN IS RISING!

God bless!

Breck Girl John Edwards protested in Roanoke yesterday

Presidential lightweight John Edwards made a stop in Roanoke last night, on his "poverty" tour.

Ignoring his hypocricy, many well-dressed and rich Democrats came out to see him.

Although the media kept this secret, he was greeted by some who did not like his hypocricy, per the picture .....

Good Edwards Cartoons

Tim Kaine protested in Roanoke today




Gov. Tim (Eyebrow) Kaine was protested by a group of Roanoke-area taxpayers today, as he attended Raleigh Court Elementary School on his "easy listening" tour. He was apparently listening to school kids, rather than taxpayers and voters.

The group took issue with Kaine's campaign promise to not raise taxes, a promise he immediately broke during his first year in office.

Also, one member of the group sat in the Tim Kaine Rocking Chair. The group objects to the fact that Kaine has done nothing while the General Assembly hammered out a Transportation Plan.

Kaine now plans radical changes to it which, if not approved, will trigger a veto.

Tax it, Tax it, Tax it

At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of
it. Be sure to read all the way to the end! And I found a NEW tax a few days ago when I bought tires. Virginia has a $1 tire tax, in addition to the 5% sales tax on tires.......
