A recently promoted member of the Bedford Police Department has resigned after being named in an ongoing investigation of the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children's Task Force.
Bedford Police Chief Todd Foreman confirmed Monday that Lt. Brian McAlexander had resigned. The 25-year veteran of the department had been promoted to lieutenant back in December. He first joined the department in 1989.
Camp Virginia Jaycee would not exist if it hadn’t been for the creative determination of Dr. William Robertson.
Back in the ‘60s Dr. Robertson had the vision for a camp for high needs children and adults. He also came up with a way to raise the money for the project and the determination to see it through. Camp Virginia Jaycee has been serving this population since 1969, and Dr. Robertson is still personally involved in the fundraising. He was at the camp, late last month, for the camp’s Founders Day Dinner.
With two plots of land next to his recently opened Bedford Lofts near Centertown Bedford, owner Dave McCormack wasn’t really looking for grass to mow.
So he offered that land to be used as a community garden.
A group of area residents took up the challenge and have created Bedford Urban Gardens—BUG, for short.
And work has already begun to get ready.
