Congratulations to local political reporter and friend Bob Stuart with the Waynesboro News-Virginian who was presented two Virginia Press Awards for 1st and 3rd place stories (see The News Virginian staff wins at awards ceremony).
Way back when, he and I sat in Mr. Witthoeff’s 7th grade class in Chesterfield County writing short stories with not a clue our paths would cross years later in the Shenandoah Valley, both still writing.
To quote Ernest Hemingway, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Bleed on, Bob!
