Just in case anyone has forgotten how cold it was last Friday night in Pulaski for Salem’s playoff game, well, that’s how cold it was. For those of you who stayed home and stayed warm — or were so busy trying to keep warm up in the stands you missed some of the action — we have a photo gallery from the action.
If those photos don’t make you feel cold, this might: This week’s issue is our Winter Sports Issue. In it, you’ll find team photos and schedules from Salem and Glenvar high schools. You’ll notice Glenvar has official team photos already, Salem doesn’t — we’ll come back with those when they’re ready.
As we always do each week, we have more online than we can squeeze into print. Here’s this week’s guide to those online extras:
* Alan Seibert’s Hokie Victory Turkey Barbeque recipe
* More on Seibert’s trip to India with other school superintendents
* Fan photos from the Vince Gill concert at the Salem Civic Center (You can share yours, too!)
* Photo of Salem’s first snow of the season (and this is a good time to make a request: Come the next snow, and surely it will come, be sure to take some photos and share at email@example.com)
* South Salem Elementary’s “wall of families”
* Photos of Salem people at The Stocked Market
* Another photo of Christine Wright’s cat making nice with a deer (or is it the other way around?)
* More autumn photos from around Salem and western Roanoke County
* The poem “The Place that Proudly Bore Us” by Roanoke College professor Melanie Almeder, quoted in Emily Paine Carter’s community column this week
Speaking of sports . . . if you’re at sporting events involving teams or players from Salem or Glenvar, take some photos (you probably will anyway, right?) and share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, since it’s Thanksgiving, and you’ll likely have the whole family gathered ’round the table, why not take a family photo and share that with us, too?
For more information on us — and how to advertise and reach more than 90 percent of the households in Salem and western Roanoke County – see below:
