  • An important conversation is underway

    Right now, an important national conversation is underway in our communities. We’ve all seen the reports of deadly attacks on police officers and excessive use of force by some law enforcement officers. These events have strained race relations and heightened tensions as well as further added to feelings of mistrust between communities and law enforcement. The loss of these lives is tragic, and, like you, I want to see an end to this violence.

     

  • High water, severe storm preparation

        As a dammed body of water, Smith Mountain Lake is susceptible to occasional severe flooding.
         Be it from a stalled tropical system or spring thaw, abnormally high water does occur.  Recent history suggests that AEP has a good grasp on managing the flow of the river and thus the water levels.  While there was some flooding upstream during recent major rain events, SML and our neighbors downstream were not severely impacted.

  • Kasich to GOP: ‘Evolve, or die’

        As Americans gets ready to vote, much attention is being paid to what will happen to the beleaguered Republican Party afterward should the result actually be what facts suggest.
        For several weeks now, Donald Trump has looked as though he’s about to lead the national GOP over a cliff. His disgusting candidacy has shamed not only himself and his supporters, but has made America an extreme curiosity in the rest of the world.

  • Why I will vote for Trump

        Next Tuesday is the big day. American voters will go to the polls and cast their ballots. The frightening part of this election is that somebody is going to win.
        Back in 2012, I held my nose and voted for Mitt Romney. I did not like Mitt Romney, but I voted for him as the lesser of two evils. I felt that reelecting Barack Obama amounted to committing national suicide and Obama, in the last four years, has not disappointed me. His foreign policy, such as it is, has done immense damage.

  • A good step

        It’s obviously not built yet, but it’s certainly a move in the right direction.
        Last week, the town of Bedford’s Economic Development Authority announced it had entered into an exclusive arrangement with Dogwood Development Company to negotiate and plan the feasibility of the construction of a business-class hotel in the town of Bedford.
        This is the shot in the arm the town needed and a good next step as it seeks to build tourism in the area.

  • Business class hotel planned for Bedford

        The town of Bedford’s Economic Development Authority announced late last week that it has entered into an exclusive arrangement with Dogwood Development Company to negotiate and plan the feasibility of the construction of a business-class hotel in the Town of Bedford.

  • Gazebo becomes Eagle Scout project

        One of the requirements for Eagle Scout is a project that will benefit the community.

        The project is not supposed to be easy and the gazebo in Bedford’s Wharton  Garden met the bill. The gazebo had been built around the turn of the century and age and vandalism had taken a toll.
        Chris Garbarini, a Liberty High School (LHS) sophomore and member of Bedford-based Troop 183, took it on as his Eagle Scout project.
