New middle school gets its name in ‘Warren County’

FRONT ROYAL — After weighing options from a public survey on a name for the new middle school slated to open in July 2017, the Warren County School Board has decided to change the name of the current Warren County Middle School to Skyline Middle School and name the new middle school Warren County Middle School. The board voted 3-1 last Thursday all saying it only made sense. While Cherefko said she understood the logic she decided to vote against the decision because she supported the community survey from 2007 for people who wanted to retain the name of the old Warren County High School.

Historic Wayside Inn on the market again

MIDDLETOWN — The historic Wayside Inn is for sale again. Inn owners George and Becky Reeves say they lack the hospitality experience to keep up with the inn, which has been around since 1797 on Main Street in Middletown. “We just need to recognize our limitations and know this inn deserves a lot better boost than what we can give it,” Becky Reeves said in a phone interview Wednesday. The Reeves bought the inn at an auction in October 2013 for $750,000. Becky said they paid a total of $805,000 for it after commission. They later bought the neighboring pavilion for $25,000, and spent $250,000 for repairs last year. The listing price for the Inn is $1.1 million, and its assessed value is roughly $1.2 million, according to the Reeves’ real estate agent, John Hotaling, who works for RE/MAX Allegiance in Arlington.

GOLF: Highland Springs - A Hidden Gem

FRANKLIN, W.Va. — A few years back a golfing acquaintance told me on an undiscovered treasure of a golf course high in the mountains of Franklin County, West Va., approximately 45 minutes west of Harrisonburg off Route 33. On a recent hot and humid Saturday I finally got to experience this Bill Ward Jr. design with a group of fellow golf junkies. After traversing the switchback-laden road to the top of Fisher Mountain - with a peak of over 3,500-feet, the scenic drive down the hill landed us in Brandywine and to Highland Springs.

SOFTBALL: PCHS coach, JMU commit named state’s 2A Coach and Player of the Year

CHARLOTTESVILLE — Page County junior Kate Gordon knows that in order to have success, there must be a strong support system around her. On Wednesday, the Lady Panthers' shortstop was named Player of the Year for the VHSL Group 2A-All State Softball team for the second-straight season. Last year, she shared the honors with King William senior Essence Jackson. “I'm really thankful I had the opportunity to get it both years,” Gordon said referring to the award. “But I'm more excited that we won the championship two years in a row.” With every great player comes a great coach. Lady Panthers' head coach Alan Knight was named Coach of the year for the second straight season. Page County senior Kare Breeden, and junior Savanah Jones also received first team honors.

GOLF: Full Cry at Keswick Hall

KESWICK — Last fall the new Pete Dye remake of the old Arnold Palmer redesign at Keswick Hall opened for play as the newly dubbed Full Cry. I had played Palmer's 6,500-yard course a few years back and was impressed by the overall layout and challenge of the course. Back to the stately grounds at Keswick Hall this past May, I wasn't sure what to expect with Dye's remake. Dye has designed some of the most famous golf courses in the world (TPC at Sawgrass, Harbour Town, Kiawah Island and Whistling Straits) and his tracks have confounded, confused, delighted and tested the best golfers in the world for decades.
