  •     Bedford Lutheran Church will hold an open house on Sunday at its parish house of Burks Hill Road. Their parish house is an historic home that came into the congregation’s possession by accident.
        Bedford Lutheran is a new Evangelical Lutheran Church of America congregation that currently worships at the Bower Center. This works out well, while the church financially positions itself to build its own sanctuary.

  • St. Thomas Episcopal Church is the little, old red brick church you see on top of a low hill on your right as you drive north on Va. 122 in the Sedalia area.

  •     St. John’s Episcopal Church will observe Good Friday with the Stations of the Cross. This follows Jesus as He carries His cross to Calvary, His crucifixion and death. During this service, people physically follow Jesus moving to 14 stations in the sanctuary.

  •     You don’t win a Purple Heart:  You earn it.

        And, rare is the man who wants to earn one.
        Still, those that have done so are in a special class:    They’ve taken one for the team and have the scars to prove it.
        Roy Scott is such a man.
        A Forest  resident (Boonsboro area), Scott earned a pair of Purple Hearts in Vietnam.

  •     A science fiction film shot primarily in Bedford, got at good response from the 1,300 people who attended MystiCon, a sci-fi convention held in Roanoke over the weekend. A three-minute scene from the feature-length motion picture was named the MystiCon Fan Favorite Film.

        “They were so expensive I thought, ‘I can’t afford them, so I’ll make them,’” Collins said.
        So, he became a sculptor.
        “I started out carving wood 35 years ago,” he said.

  •     A change of career direction is getting Bedford resident Jerome Sturm attention in the art world.

  •     Music played a big part of the culture in the 1940s with its patriotic and sentimental themes as World War II raged around the world.

        Karen Nichols and her Quartet will bring the sounds of the times to the stage.
