The Blue Devils and Titans exchanged the ball several times as neither team could generate a scoring drive. Then in the fourth quarter the Titans got a good drive going and finished it off with a Clay Collins 24 yard pass to Daniel Devine for a td and a 13-12 Titan lead. Collins then passed to Austin Neece for a two point conversion and a 15-12 Titan advantage. The Titans made a mistake on the kick off after Damien Patrick got a nice return on the kick off return.

With Traverse doing most of the running, the Devils moved the ball to the 10 of Twin Springs and were in good posi- tion to take the lead. However, a penalty for motion stopped the CHS drive. The Blue Devil defense then forced the Titans to punt from deep in their own territory. The Blue Devils then made a huge mistake and fumbled the Titan punt that the Titans recovered. From near mid-field the -. Titans then moved in for the clinching td. Senior Kelly Holbrook went the final 17 yards for the td. Collins kicked the extra point for the final Titan point and a 22-12 victory. Traverse picked up 223 yards rushing in the game off 27 carries for the Castlewood Blue Devils.

After the Lawson td run, the Spartans tried to get a two point conversion but it failed. They apparently did this to make the Generals have to get a td to go ahead in the game. With about 10:06 on the fourth quarter clock, Sage got his second field goal of the game from 34 yards to tie the score and set up the overtime win. NASA successfully launches the LADEE Mission tothe Moon from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia Governor McDonnel[ ,con- Space Flight Authority gratulated NASA and , Orbital Sciences Corporation oa the launch of the LADEE Mission to the Moon from Virginia'S Mid- Atlantic Regional SpaCeport (MARS) at Wallops Island. The launch took place on Seiatember -6, 2013, from MARS Pad 0B, on the first Minotaur V launch ve- hicle built by Orbital Sciences, a northern Virginia corporation. ;LADEE (Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer) is a robotic mission that will,orbit the Moon to gather detailed in- formation about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the -surface, and environmental in- i fluences on lunar dffSt. A thorough understanding of these .characteristics will address'long- standing unknowns and,, help scientists understand other plan- etary bodies as well. "The nation witnessed atre- mendous event at Wallops Is- i land," said Governor McDon- nell. "Virginia is honored to have played a role in this his- toric achievement and [com- mend the Virginia Commercial (VCSFA), Orbital Sciences Corporation, and MARS for theft efforts. The Common- wealth stands ready to continue its support of future mission." Virginia Secretary of Trans- portation Scan T. Connaughton said, "Virginia strongly supports the aerospace industry and is very proud to have launched this historic mission to the Moon for the nation." Dale Nash, Executive Direc- tor of the Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority (VCSFA), which owns and operates MARS, commented from the Range Control Center (RCC) at Wallops, "We are very proud to be part of the LADEE team, and I am pleased with the exceptional performance of the MARS personnel and facilities in supporting the first lunar mis- sion launched from Virginia." The LADEE spacecraft has a modular common spacecraft bus, or body. This is an inno- vative way of transitioning away from custom designs to multi- use designs and assembly-line t type production, which aims to dramatically reduce the cost of spacecraft development. The LADEE Mission is the 244 overall launch of the Minotaur family of vehicles and the fifth Minotaur launch from MARS. The Minotaur V will boost the LADEE Spacecraft into a highly elliptical orbit of 200 km x 278,000 km around the Earth. Over the next 23 days, as LADEE orbits Earth 3.5 times, the Moon's gravitational field will increase the perigee of its orbit. The spacecraft will fire its on-board thrusters to alter its trajectory to allow it to enter orbit around the Moon. The spacecraft is designed to conduct a 100-day mission to measure lunar dust and examine the lunar atmosphere from an orbit of 50 km above the surface of the Moon. Virginia plays a key role in National security, as one of only four states in the United States that is licensed by the FAA to launch to orbit. Virginia will continue to strongly support the aerospace industry through- out the Commonwealth. I Subscribe today to the Clinch Valley Times , 762-7671 ] -i. . ......

Poultry Project participants project Taylor, red; Katie Hackney, red; Avery Hackney, red; Zechariah Fields, red; Chloe Haun, white; Savannah Hurd, white; and Isaac Shortridge, white. This educational 4-H Project was offered to the youth of Russell County through their schools and local newspapers. The project started with an or- ganizational meeting in March, 2013. The arrival of the chicks in April was an exciting time! Twenty youth started the project in April 2013 with 15 baby chicks. Russell County Cooperative/Southern States of Lebanon generously sponsored the 4-H Poultry Project by ordering and paying for half the price of the baby chicks. The project members paid the remaining portion of the price of their chicks: 4-Hers cared for their birds all summer and were to bring five of their best chickens to the Russell County Fair. Several of the original 20 youth unfortun- ately lost their chicks due to dogs and wild animals and were unable to participate in the show. Each 4-Her was required as part of the project to complete a Project Record Book and turn it in by September 13 to be judged. There will be awards given for the Project Record Books. Tree seedling sale changes underway Officials with the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF) announced changes to the pro- cess for ordering seedlings. On- line orders for seedlings cannot be accepted while VDOF devel- ops a new online store and inventory management system. VDOF's Second Generation Orchard Mix, "Third Cycle and '-Premium loblolly pine seedlings, in addition to other conifers and hardwoods seedlings, can be ordered by phone. Customers may call the Garland Gray Forestry Center, 804.834.2855, or the Augusta Forestry Center at 540.363.7000. Orders may be placed during regular business hours, which are Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Orders for the Elite, Control Pollinated and Virginia's Best loblolly pine will not be ac- cepted by telephone. These seed- lings represent only 8 percent of our total inventory. Due to the limited quantities of these seed- lings, customers can request these seedlings using an online Request Form. The Control Pol- linated and Virginia's Best seed- lings will be limited to 25,000 per customers, and the Elite will be limited to 50.,000 per custom- mer. "-@ - Beginning Tuesday, Oct)ber 1, 2013, at 10 am, customers should visit VDOF's website at and select the "Specialty Seedling Request" rink. Requests will be filled on a "first-come, first-served basis." These top three seedling varieties'are expected to sell out very quickly, and requests will not be filled once the inventory is depleted. All customers will be notified if their order carl be filled. The VDOF's two tree nurseries grow and sell 24 million tree seedlings each year. The Elite, Control Pollinated and Virginia's Best seedlings are derived from fewer selections and thus fewer are grown from available seed stock. The top three loblolly pine varieties are best suited for landowners who utilize silvi- cultural treatments, such as site preparation and woody Vege- tation control, on their pine stands as part of their sawtimber rotation. The actual growth gains of each loblolly family depend on the planting site, soil type and these expected treatments. All of VDOF's loblolly pine seedlings provide growth gains over unimproved seedlings. All seedling varieties that are still in stock will be available for sale through the online store when it opens later in the year.
