The Southwest Virginia Road Trip: The Local Food Quest

first_imgGuide to the Southwest Virginia Road Trip:BRING: Mountain bike, camping gear, your appetiteHIGHLIGHT: Getting as high as you can in VirginiaSOUVENIR: Photo of you kissing a ponyDay OneKick off this trip with some cardio by running the crest of North Mountain, aka “The Dragon’s Back,” 15 miles northwest of Roanoke in the George Washington National Forest, where rocky terrain and bitchin climbs lead to views of McAfee Knob and Tinker Cliffs. After an immediate 1,000 foot climb on Deer Trail (park off FS 224), follow the North Mountain Trail as it rolls for 4.5 miles along the narrow ridge over jagged, gray rocks offering views to your left and right. Take Turkey Trail back to your car for an 11-mile loop.Before leaving town, grab a Smoked Trout Melt ($10) at The River and Rail, a Southern café in a restored pharmacy with a seasonal menu that changes weekly.Head southwest to Pandapas Pond/Brush Mountain, a recreation area in Jefferson National Forest outside of Blacksburg with more than 20 miles of singletrack that’s lovingly maintained by local mountain bikers and trail runners. Start at Pandapas and take Poverty Creek Trail to the top of Brush Mountain, then drop down Jacob’s Ladder and Old Farm for a three-mile burly descent.Get a campsite on the New River at Eggleston Springs Campground ($20) and head to the Palisades Restaurant for dinner. Housed inside an old general store, the Palisades serves hand cut steaks and rainbow trout sourced from local farms and streams. If you time it right, you’ll catch one of the local string bands playing live on weekend nights.Day TwoKeep trucking south to Grayson Highlands State Park, where you’ll bag the state high point, 5,729-foot Mount Rogers. Rogers often gets dissed because it doesn’t have a big view from its summit, but it’s the only state high point east of the Mississippi that doesn’t have a paved road to its summit. Start inside the state park at Massie Gap, hiking the A.T. four miles to the Mount Rogers Spur Trail to the summit. You’ll get long-range views from grassy meadows along the way, probably see a feral pony or two on Wilburn Ridge, and get to immerse yourself in the dank spruce-fir forest that dominates the top of Rogers. Retrace your steps to your car for an eight-mile round trip in Virginia’s High Country.Post-hike, cruise into Abingdon, which is rapidly becoming Southwest Virginia’s hub of local food. Grab dinner at The Harvest Table (276-944-5142), where the menu changes daily depending on what they can source from their own farm and partner farms. If it’s on the menu, get the Salad Pizza, which is exactly what it sounds like.Finish the day at Wolf Hills Brewing, with a White Blaze Honey Cream Ale (or two), which uses four pounds of local honey in each barrel.Head south across the border and get a campsite at Backbone Rock Recreation Area, known for the “shortest tunnel in the world,” the 20-foot long hole that was blasted through a rock wall to accommodate a timber train.

Kim was not inside the vehicle and police wouldn’t say if a gun or any other items were inside the SUV. Police are continuing the search, the spokesman said.Kim’s SUV was discovered in a parking lot 70 miles north of where he allegedly gunned down an employee of Savenergy on South Street near the corner of Ring Road. The owner of the company was also shot and was taken to a local hospital.The 10 a.m. shooting just south of Roosevelt Field Mall and in the heart of Garden City’s busy business and shopping district sparked a large police presence in the area. Surrounding roads were blocked off to drivers and Roosevelt Field mall was on lock down for several hours until authorities gave mall officials the go-ahead to allow shoppers back inside. Those inside the busy mall were bottled up inside as police searched the perimeter.Nassau County police taped off the area where a gunman opened fire inside an East Garden City office Wednesday killing one and injuring another. (Rashed Mian/Long Island Press)Law enforcement agencies including Nassau police, FBI and New York State police launched a massive manhunt for Kim soon after the shooting.Authorities established a possible motive very early on.Kim was a former Savenergy vendor who became involved in a “bad business deal” with the lighting company, Chief of Department Steve Skrynecki told reporters a press conference near the scene.

Officials urge Hoosiers to get the flu shot

first_imgIndianapolis, In.— The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is urging anyone who hasn’t already gotten a flu shot to do so now. Although influenza (flu) activity remains at minimal levels, the virus can still cause illness and even death. Indiana has already recorded two flu-related deaths this season.“This week is National Influenza Vaccination Week, and it’s the perfect time to get a flu shot if you haven’t already done so,” said Indiana State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu.”As long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year. Dr. Box said that because infants under 6 months can’t be vaccinated, it’s important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives or visits get a flu shot to protect the child. Antibodies that provide protection develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.Healthcare workers also are urged to get a flu vaccine to reduce their risk of transmitting illness to their patients.Influenza is a viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is spread by respiratory droplets released when infected people cough or sneeze nearby or when people touch surfaces or objects contaminated with those infectious respiratory droplets. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.Although anyone can get the flu, some people are at higher risk of flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, hospitalization and death. High-risk individuals include pregnant women, young children (especially those too young to get vaccinated), people with chronic illnesses, people who are immunocompromised and the elderly. It is especially important for these individuals to be vaccinated each year.Common signs and symptoms of the flu include:fever of 100° Fahrenheit or greater• headache• fatigue• cough• muscle aches• sore throat• runny or stuffy nosePeople can help prevent the spread of flu by washing their hands frequently and thoroughly, avoiding touching their eyes, nose and mouth with their hands and staying home when sick. Hoosiers should practice the “Three Cs” to help prevent the spread of flu and other infectious diseases:Clean:Properly wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water.• Cover: Cover your cough and sneeze into your arm or a disposable tissue.• Contain: Stay home from school or work when you are sick to keep your germs from spreading.To learn more about influenza or to view the ISDH weekly flu report, which is updated each Friday, go to www.in.gov/isdh/25462.htm.last_img read more

first_imgVirat Kohli put out a tweet which was at 8:01 PM on February 14.Kohli deleted the tweet and put out a condolence tweet on February 15.42 CRPF personnel were killed in the terror attack in Pulwama. Shame on virat Kohli not single tweet about 45 martyer indian army personnel.— Mukesh Pasi (@MukeshPasi12) February 14, 2019In the sporting arena, cricketers, wrestlers, badminton players and others have vented their fury on Twitter, condemning the terror attack and calling for the Narendra Modi government to take strict action in eliminating the menace of terrorism.  Cricket players like Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Saina Nehwal and many from the wrestling fraternity took to their official Twitter handles to lash out at the attack.Gambhir, who retired from all forms of cricket in December 2018 and has been vocal on plenty of issues ever since, lashed out at the separatists in Kashmir. “Yes, let’s talk with the separatists. Yes, let’s talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can’t be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough,” Gambhir lashed out on his Twitter handle.Players like Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan offered their condolences to the families of the CRPF personnel who were killed. Saina Nehwal, India’s ace badminton player, was joined by wrestlers like Sushil Kumar, Babita Phogat and Geeta Phogat in expressing their condolences and praying for the soul of the 42 CRPF personnel. Yogeshwar Dutt retweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tweet which said, “Attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. I strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly.” highlights New Delhi: Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket team skipper, has been heavily criticised for his ‘insensitive’ tweet during the Pulwama terror attacks which resulted in the death of 42 CRPF personnel. The Pulwama terror attack took place around 2:00 PM on February 14 and with the death toll rising every hour, the anger among the Indian public grew. At 8:01 PM on the same day, Kohli put out a tweet on his official social media handle which read, “Clubs that invoke deep-rooted passion in fans’ hearts. Vote now, guys!” The tweet was apparently sharing the Indian Sports Honours which listed out the nominees for the ‘Club of the Year’ and it included teams like Chennai Super Kings, Real Kashmir FC, Patna Pirates and Bengaluru FC.This resulted in massive criticism and the tweet was taken down. However, one of the users still had a screenshot of the tweet. At 9:50 AM on February 15, Kohli tweeted his condolences to the Pulwama Terror attack. “I’m shocked after hearing about the attack in Pulwama, heartfelt condolences to the martyred soldiers & prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured jawaans,” Kohli tweeted.
