Today's News

  • Seminole on a roll

      The Seminole District proved why it is considered to be among the elite of Virginia football.  Adding to an already impressive season, the district saw two of its members clinch Region III championships Friday night.

  • Almost starting from scratch

      It wasn't enough to graduate two of the best players the Staunton River girls program has seen.  That happened when Jodi Salyer and Shaniesha Robinson picked up their sheepskins last June.  

  • Golden Eagle hoops men look iffy

      When you get poached, you may become a poacher, yourself.

  • Minettes feast on Golden Eagles in hoops opener

      My, the tables have turned.

  • Sports commentary: Big Ten Terps

      The news was not enough to dampen the joy in my heart which came from that lush array of turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie.

  • Supervisors will consider eight districts

        A suggestion by District 1 Supervisor Bill Thomasson to consider creating an eighth district in Bedford County, as part of the rezoning required with Bedford’s reversion to town status, caused a sharp debate among the supervisors at a regular meeting on Nov. 14.
        The measure passed on a 4-2 vote with District 4 Supervisor John Sharp and District 3 Supervisor Roger Cheek casting the opposing votes. Board Chairman Steve Arrington was absent.

  • Demanding answers on the Benghazi attack

    It has now been two months since a group of hostile Islamic radicals attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, including two Navy SEALS.

  • GOP dilemma: Change or keep losing


    Demographics.
        If you could boil down to one word how national Republicans managed to lose another presidential election, that would be it. Aside from President Barack Obama’s popularity and the issues that helped him, the GOP’s refusal to come to terms with the changing population face of this country is mostly what got it beaten.
        Some people get very sensitive if you say that the GOP is too white, or “lily white,” as I like to put it. But go to a Republican rally, and tell me what you see.

  • A truly shocking column


        I was absolutely shocked when I read Rick Howell’s “Liberal Agenda” last week. I couldn’t believe my eyes at first! Mr. Howell actually wrote something I agree with. The part of his column that I agreed with consisted of the last four paragraphs where he congratulated Jason Johnson for his election to the the Bedford County School Board.
