    The Village Voice ^ | Wednesday, Sep 24 2014 | By Nick Schager
    Rewriting history to egregious ends, Field of Lost Shoes recounts the true-life saga of seven Virginia Military Institute cadets who in 1864 died in service to the Confederate Army during the Battle of New Market. Awash in phony-looking facial hair and clichéd period drama, Sean McNamara’s drama defines those brave boys via their love of black people, their embrace of Jews, and their desire to fight so that they might protect their homeland from “foreign invaders,” uphold their “traditions,” and preserve their “future.” Save for a brief prologue, there isn’t a pro-slavery Southern man to be found in this fantasyland...

    The mother of a 20-year-old woman who disappeared in 2009 from Charlottesville, Virginia and later found dead in says her daughter's death is linked forensically with the man now suspected of abducting 18-year-old Hannah Graham. That man is Jesse Matthew Jr. Now Gil Harrington, mother of slain Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, told NBC Washington that Virginia authorities believe he may have been involved in both crimes. Or perhaps even more crimes. Graham is one of five young women to have disappeared from the Charlottesville area in the past five years within a few minutes' drive of the same Route...

    The new supervisor thought his idea was innocent enough. He wanted the baristas to write the names of customers on their cups to speed up lines and ease confusion, just like other Starbucks do around the world. But these aren’t just any customers. They are regulars at the CIA Starbucks. “They could use the alias ‘Polly-O string cheese’ for all I care,” said a food services supervisor at the Central Intelligence Agency, asking that his identity remain unpublished for security reasons. “But giving any name at all was making people — you know, the undercover agents — feel very uncomfortable....

    A Virginia Tech geobiologist with collaborators from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have found evidence in the fossil record that complex multicellularity appeared in living things about 600 million years ago – nearly 60 million years before skeletal animals appeared during a huge growth spurt of new life on Earth known as the Cambrian Explosion. The discovery published online Wednesday in the journal Nature contradicts several longstanding interpretations of multicellular fossils from at least 600 million years ago. "This opens up a new door for us to shine some light on the timing and evolutionary steps that were taken by...

    U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts put a signature to documents associated with the mortgage on a Virginia residence that identify the Fairfax County home as “principal residence” of the three-term incumbent Republican. The re-election campaign of the Kansan has been awash in controversy about whether his ownership of a duplex in Dodge City, which is rented out, and his payment of about $300 a month for a room in a Dodge City supporter's home satisfied legal requirements for public office. On Wednesday, records surfaced that Roberts signed a Deed of Trust in 1997 and 2003 for property owned in Alexandria, Va.,...

    About 450,000 voters in Virginia may lack the proper identification needed to cast a ballot in the November midterm elections, the Virginia State Board of Elections said Thursday. Under a state law that took effect this year, Virginia voters must present a driver’s license or some other form of photo identification at their polling stations before they cast a vote. Although voters who lack such proof would be allowed to fill out provisional ballots on Nov. 4, election officials hope more people will obtain state ID cards or some other valid form of identification so that their votes could be...

    Following the arrest on Wednesday of Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., some community leaders are asking if the pursuit of justice for Hannah Graham came at the expense of eroded trust among Central Virginia’s black residents. Authorities last week identified Matthew, 32, as a person of interest in the case. Graham, an 18-year-old University of Virginia student, disappeared on Sept. 13. Authorities on Tuesday charged Matthew with abduction with intent to defile and on Wednesday night they announced Matthew had been apprehended in Galveston, Texas, some 1,300 miles from Charlottesville. After Matthew was identified, men who happened to resemble Matthew, who...

Her parents, as you can imagine, are beyond crushed. As of yesterday, the police have issued a search warrant for Jesse Matthew, who cops think was the last person to see Hannah Graham before she vanished. Last weekend Mr. & Mrs. Graham held a press conference thanking law enforcement and volunteers for their search efforts and letting folks know that this is a ‘parents worse nightmare’ and that ‘it...

By Chris Freund September 19, 2014 The new Republican majority in the state Senate quickly went to work reorganizing committees while in town for the special session on the budget and Medicaid. Of course, those who’ve been paying attention may remember the battles over committee makeup when Republicans took over the Senate with then LG Bill Bolling casting the tie breaking vote, only to see a reversal of fortune in January when Democrats took control with LG Ralph Northam. Bad blood has been flowing between the two caucuses ever since, so the changes...

    In a move that could shake up the conservative-outside-group-world, former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is suing a conservative political action committee called Conservative StrikeForce PAC for allegedly raising millions of dollars for his campaign, and spending only a small fraction of that on his race. According to a report on the lawsuit: “(A) substantial proportion of the approximately $2.2 million that defendants raised through political fundraising in 2013 was directly attributable to solicitations invoking Ken Cuccinelli, as Virginia’s gubernatorial election was the marquee contested race of American politics in 2013,” the lawsuit states. “Defendants, however, have admitted that they...

According to reports, the radical preacher was telling gay individuals they were going to hell, in addition to telling students who identified as Christians they too were headed “straight to hell” for living a life of sin. Instead of reciprocating with hateful rhetoric, however, JMU students responded in an admirable way. As the preacher rages on, one student began to play the guitar while others sang the hymn “How He Loves.” “This is the way you handle it,”...

If he isn’t given the job, they said they’ll go to court to try to get an injunction to force the university...

This parade is a Catholic event and I am disheartened to hear that Cardinal Dolan would support a position contrary to that of the church in this situation. September 6, 2014 H. E. Most Rev.

    Reuters) - The secret marriage this year of a 96-year-old Virginia woman and a 95-year-old man has drawn the scrutiny of a judge, who has ruled the marriage may be illegal, a lawyer said on Tuesday. Judge James Clark of the Alexandria Circuit Court ruled this month that the marriage between Eddie Harrison and Edith Hill may not be legally binding and ordered Hill's attorney, Jessica Niesen, to investigate it. The legality of the marriage surfaced during a custodial dispute over who should care for Hill, who was ruled legally incapacitated in 2011. Hill's granddaughter, Rebecca Wright, and daughter Patricia...

    President Barack Obama had another very bad week. It was only because former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell was convicted on eleven of fourteen counts of corruption that Mr. Obama didn't walk away with the Worst Week honors. President announced during his pre-taped interview with Chuck Todd (to help mark the beginning of the Todd era on Meet the Press) that he would be addressing the nation on Wednesday night on his strategy for dealing with ISIS/ISIL/IS. Remember, a couple of weeks ago he told a presser that he had no strategy to do that which was about as dumb a...

    Fairfax County has struggled for years to find a way to address such overcrowding, with county inspectors repeatedly citing homes for having too many families living in them, and planners and lawmakers searching for ways to promote more modest, affordable housing in a community filled with spacious single-family homes and McMansions. So far, it has been an uphill battle. The county Planning Commission is expected to recommend Wednesday that the Board of Supervisors stop considering a proposed amendment to zoning laws that would have fostered the creation of more studio apartments in Fairfax. By allowing developers to build single-occupancy studios...

    A Franklin student who sexually assaulted two fellow volleyball team members on a school bus after a trip to a game in Northampton County was escorted to jail in tears after she pleaded no contest to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery. Aerial Darden, who was 17 at the time of the offense and a senior team captain, organized a group that held down a 13-year-old teammate, placed a pillow over her face and touched her inappropriately. The victim was on her first trip with the team. The attack came after Darden and others held the arms and legs of...

    NORFOLK Her attacker broke in through a back door while she was sleeping. He tied her up and held a knife to her throat. He said he wasn't going to rape her, that he was hungry and just wanted money. But he did rape her. A month later, he returned in the middle of the night to the same house near Ocean View. He bound the woman and her teenage daughter with duct tape and raped the girl. Norfolk police investigated, but the case went cold. Two years later in Kuwait, in 2010, an Army captain was showering when a...

    A former rising star in the Republican Party, former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was red-faced and sobbing Thursday after a jury convicted him and his wife on multiple counts related to influence-peddling while he was in office. After more than a month of sometimes soul-baring testimony, the federal jury issued guilty verdicts on 11 counts against McDonnell, while clearing him on two others. His wife, Maureen, was convicted on nine while cleared on four. The charges involved gifts the couple received from a businessman, including a Rolex watch, a $15,000 check for their daughter’s wedding and other items that are...
