Volleyball team celebrates a score.The Flying Fluco volleyball team bounced back from a couple of recent 3-1 losses by scoring a decisive 3-0 victory over the Hornets from Orange County High on Sept. 27.

The Flucos won the opening contest by a solid 25-11 margin. The second game was a complete blow-out as the Flucos ran off to a 25-4 victory. Fluco Coach Christie Harlowe-Garrett substituted liberally in the third game, but the Flucos still came out ahead by a 25-21 score. A team has to win three games in high school volleyball to win the match.

Voter fraud?

It appears David Toscano, D-Charlottesville, house minority leader, has decreed there is no voter fraud in Virginia. That must make it so! He cites as proof there was no fraud, as the problem was uncovered before any damage could be done. I must assume that Toscano, a lawyer and someone elected to the House of Representatives to represent the people in his district, has irrefutable proof to back up his statement? Possibly he has insight into how 19 deceased individuals were recently registered to vote? How many fraudulent registrations have not been identified? The fraudulent registrations were caught by what can only be described as luck, when a family member of one of the deceased was made aware of the deceased member’s registration and by an observant registrar who recognized one of the registrations belonged to a deceased person she knew. How many additional fraudulent registrations have not been identified within Virginia as well as in other states? Add a comment
