Tailgating is illegal in Virginia, it doesn’t make anyone go faster, and it only causes frustration and accidents. Use the 2-, 3-, and 4-second rule to determine a safe following distance. Glance at the vehicle ahead as it passes a sign, fence post, mailbox, or other fixed object. Count the seconds it takes you to reach the same spot. Anything less than 2, 3, or 4 seconds –depending on speed – means you’re following too close. Find more safe driving rules at www.dmv.virginia.gov/webdoc/pdf/dmv39d.pdf. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ...

Most stress free 2 weeks of my 44 years of driving was when my rear view mirror was broken and I did not have to see the car 3 feet behind me at 60mph..

IF only folks going to work in the morning would leave 10 minutes earlier and drive this way and obey the speed limit 😬😂😂

Not sure who is posting this. Just wanted to say that I got run off the road by a dump truck on Salem Church Road in Clark Co. and a SUV going the other direction did also about 3 weeks ago. I emailed the Sheriff and got no response what so ever.

I see too much of it!!!!

Years back I was taught one car length for every 10 mph. But today you will never see 5 car lengths between cars traveling 50 mph. Too many cars.

Commuters on Rt 7, please take note.

How about people that park it the left lane forever

Can we get more speed limit signs on 340? No one appears to know it’s actually 55mph

When you try. There are those that blow horns. Speed up pass and reduce space in front of your 🚗 car.

After record-setting rain in 2018, we’re on track for an “average” year. Between Jan. 1 and July 31, Berryville received 27.47 inches of rain according to a resident who is retired from the U.S. Geological Survey, and Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce recorded 28.1 inches. Clarke County’s average annual rainfall is about 38 inches. By July 31 last year, almost 36 inches of rain had caused major damage to crops, homes, and roads – and the rain continued. Clarke’s 2018 rainfall total was between 68.3 and 69.08 inches across the county. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ... See MoreSee Less

The “naked ladies” are back for their brief, annual appearance. These plants are also called “resurrection lilies,” “magic lilies,” and “surprise lilies” because they seem to pop up overnight on long, leafless stems, and quickly grow to 2- or 3-feet tall. The botanical name is Lycoris squamigera. Hardy bulbs send up thick, green leaves in spring. Then, long after the foliage is forgotten, the sturdy, leafless stalks of fragrant, lilac-pink flower clusters emerge. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ... See MoreSee Less

I love them would love to have more of them ,we call them stick flowers .

those things are so amazing!!

I need to find some to plant in my new flower bed - we moved and I had to leave my old ones behind.

I have those from my Grandmother’s garden. I love them I hope I will be able to see mine I have a weed patch

And the deer love to eat them

Our deer never touch them - also called belladonna lilies?

Beautiful!

I have them. Always called the magic Lillie’s.

Mom used to call them ghost lilies because he appeared so quick and left so quick

My goats ate mine - again.

Yes and they are called resurrection lilies too.

I am so glad mine decided to come off their bloom vacation this year. My clump belonged to my mother in law, and came from her mother's garden. So they are at least 60 years growing. My mother in law was born in 1907 and said they were the first flowers she ever saw. Resurrection for sure!!

So that’s what those are!!

We love ours and since the squirrels spread bulbs we get “surprise lilies” in very unusual places.

“Rural broadband is a bipartisan win for Virginia. My district will see big benefits from projects like the $200K+ grant awarded for broadband in White Post. Thanks to our leaders from both parties for pushing this forward,” says Delegate Wendy Gooditis: www.facebook.com/WendyGooditisVA/videos/910439772626334/

Details about the Virginia Telecommunications Initiative grant and White Post project: www.winchesterstar.com/winchester_star/northam-visits-white-post-to-formally-announce-high-speed-...

Great job to everyone that worked to make this happen. I just hope my street is included.

Comcast recently buried cable along our road,604 Ebenezer Rd. easement on my property, everyone down our lane was excited, only to find out they want $27,000 to bring it down our lane!

So you’re saying that Comcast will be expanding their service into a part of the county that is known to have more money than the rest? What about the rest of the county that isn't so affluent? Old money runs deep apparently.

Looking good Billy Thompson. Your granddaddy would be so proud of you

What about the rest of the county?

This is Epic!!! Congrats!

So sorry to have missed this. Tried to get Comcast 4 miles down the road in Warren County on my street but it would cost me $53,000 to get it! Funny thing is Comcast is on the cross street 1/8 of a mile from my house.

Why do people have to bring such nasty partisanship into everything? Can we not agree this is a positive step?

Can they come on Longmarsh? 😭😂

Thompson for Gov.

Both of them are a joke

Why were the circus clowns here?

What a joke!

Chris Youngs

THIS governor decided to come to WHITE Post? I'm almost certain there's a joke here

Property values will go up in White Post

No Black face or aborted babies?

I’m not sure I would be touting Ralph “the black face “ Northam was at my business. Despicable human garbage. True Virginia Racist. Especially in White Post. Slave Town Only Democrats would try this crap.

Good luck on the fund raiser.
