  • Bees sting Min-mat-men

     

    The Liberty wrestling crew still has quite a way to go to catch up with the likes of Brookville.

    That was shown last Wednesday evening, when the Bees flew into the Minutemen's gym and stung Liberty to the tune of 58-24.

    It was nearly as high a score as you can get.  The combined 82 points fell just short of the possible maximum total of 84.

    High point totals means high pin totals.  And that's just what the decently-sized crowd at Liberty saw.

  • Claim to Fame

     

    The festive Christmas decorations were shut down at Bedford's National Elks Home not long ago.

    But that doesn't mean the celebrating stopped.

    In fact, the place was in full roar last Friday evening.  That's when Liberty High School's first-ever Hall of Fame class was inducted.

    At a banquet hosted at the Elks Home, the class numbering 13 members was feted.  On Saturday, the members received their commemorative medallions between basketball games featuring the Liberty and Staunton River varsity squads.

  • Reflecting back on 2013 and looking toward the year ahead

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Since coming to Congress, my top priority has been promoting job growth.  As we look back at 2013 and we begin the New Year and the second session of the 113th Congress, I am encouraged by the progress my colleagues in the House and I have made in this effort.  We have approved numerous pieces of legislation aimed at rejuvenating our economy, and it is my hope that many of these will continue to move through the legislative process as we return in January.

  • Looking ahead in the New Year

    As we ring in 2014, the House and Senate return to Washington for the start of the second session of the 113th Congress. Looking forward, it is abundantly clear that our nation has much to accomplish to tackle the challenges of today and ensure a prosperous future for generations to come. However, with a new year and a new session of Congress come new opportunities.

     

  • Plans

    By Steve Wilkerson
    District 3 Supervisor

        Greetings and the wish of a prosperous new year to everyone. 
        As I write this, the Monday morning forecast  is predicting temperatures in the low double digits.  I’m hoping that doesn’t cause any problems for anyone, myself included.  I’m also preparing to leave for a “New Supervisor’s Forum” in Richmond, hoping to return with a better skill set for serving you all.

  • Pope Francis is not a Marxist

        Let me preface this by reminding readers that I’m not Roman Catholic. I’m Anglican.

  • Great expectations?

    As 2014 gets underway, it’s time to hope that the workings of government—most notably at the federal level—get better.
        It certainly couldn’t get much worse than 2013, so expectations are somewhat low. For those in the White House and in Congress that’s good news; they have nowhere to go but up. At least that’s what you would think—we’ll have to see what happens.
        These aren’t the days of great expectations, but it is time to expect something of value from our elected leaders.

  • Calls come in bunches for BFD

        Bedford’s fire department answered three calls in quick succession the day after Christmas. All three were unrelated and within a couple hundred yards of each other.
        According to Bedford Fire Chief Brad Creasy, it started when they got a call about a man who was pinned between a vehicle and a dumpster. The truck that responded to that call came upon a wreck, a matter of yards away, that had happened just seconds before the truck got there.

  • Bedford Liberty Lodge celebrates its bicentennial

        Masonic Lodge dignitaries from all over the state, including Virginia Grand Master Wayne Sawyer, gathered in Bedford to celebrate Liberty Lodge’s bicentennial. The lodge takes its name from Bedford’s original name, Liberty, because that was the town’s name when the lodge was chartered in 1813. Liberty didn’t become Bedford until that century’s end.
