WINFIELD — City officials expressed frustration over the lack of progress being made on the traffic lights at the main intersection in downtown Winfield after a tornado destroyed the previous lights on Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021.
That was nearly two years ago.
Now, a set of temporary lights still hang diagonally across the intersection. The awkward angle, combined with a lack of left-turn signals and a dangerous blind hill, have created a dangerous situation that has left citizens and city officials alike frustrated over the delay in repairs.
WINFIELD — The City of Winfield is challenging the constitutionality of the state reporting law involving the collection of sales tax revenue from areas that are outside of city limits but within police jurisdictions.
The city unexpectedly found itself in violation of this law earlier this year, and by law, the city now must either stop providing services in those areas or abolish the jurisdiction all together.

WINFIELD — The Pastime Theatre in downtown Winfield will be getting a new roof after the city council accepted a bid of just over $67,000 from Mid America Roofing during its regular meeting on Tuesday, June 6.
The current roof, which was installed in the early 2000s as the building was being renovated, was damaged by the F1 tornado that hit downtown Winfield on Dec. 29, 2021.
While the roof wasn’t destroyed or removed completely, the tornado lifted the roof slightly, which has led to several issues since then.
WINFIELD — Northwest Regional Health will unveil its new $4 million emergency department on Friday, June 16, with a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m. and tours for the community from 1-6 p.m. The state-of-the-art facility represents a significant community investment for the emergency medical care of Marion, Lamar, Fayette and Winston counties.
PLAINS, VIRGINIA — Two high school rocketry teams from Marion County traveled to the Washington, D.C. area to compete in the final round of the American Rocketry Challenge in Great Meadow in The Plains, Va. on the weekend of Saturday, May 20.
