I've written before about Virginia Tech's focus on energy research and sustainability, even going so far as to say that the university's focus on these issues is a nice example of putting their money where their mouth is, with no outside pressure.  And I believe that. And appointments such as the...
Inman News posted information last week a new plan whose focus was to streamline the loan modification process.  I'm admittedly behind on this post, and it's been rehashed across the web.  Essentially, if (1) you're at least 90 days delinquent on a home that is your primary residence and on which...
And this one won't be, either. A few days ago, I needed a break.  I had been in the office all day working on some things, and my craving for a Diet Pepsi Max (yea, I'm one of the 31 people across the nation that actually like the stuff) kicked in.  One of the many reasons I like my office is tha...

Blacksburg Transit is providing "Election Day transportation service to voting locations within the Town of Blacksbu...
I had a video session scheduled today with Leslie Frantz, owner and operator of Hometown Appraisal Services here in Blacksburg, and we FORTUNATELY had to cancel the appointment.  I wanted to talk with Leslie about how the current market has changed her appraisals, and what she's seeing on a daily...
It's Sustainability Week in Blacksburg, which means we should be focusing a little bit more on minimizing our impact in the communities we live in.  One of the ways to do that is to bike around Town.  Have you ever tried it?  Blacksburg is a pretty bike-friendly town, at least more than most, and...
