  • Community loses a good friend

        What wasn’t Edna Hayden involved with?

        It seems like you hardly went a civic event in Bedford where you didn’t see Hayden’s smiling face and busy hands. When she died on Sept. 9 at the age of 83, many organizations lost a great friend.

  • Defending Protestant Christianity

        Upon returning from a wonderful vacation trip to the Rocky Mountains, where we admired God’s magnificent creation, waiting for us was Rick Howell’s “Religion Often Keeps People Backward” in the Bedford Bulletin.
        I will only defend Protestant Christianity and list a few of its forward accomplishments in America:

  • Huge Dem victory repudiates Trump

        “Virginia rejects your hateful politics, Mr. Trump. This isn’t a wave; it’s a tsunami.”
        So wrote the New York Times on the morning of Nov. 8, after Democrats Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax and Mark Herring not only stormed to victory across the state, but led their House of Delegates candidates to shatter the GOP’s 32-vote advantage.

  • Trump was never a threat

        Not long after Donald Trump was elected a man who I have as a Facebook friend — I also know him in real life — expressed his concern that Trump is a dictator wannabe. While I’m not a Trump fan, and I’m sure he’s frustrated with Congress as he never had to work with a board of directors in business — I don’t think that’s one of his dreams. I always thought Barack Obama had more autocratic proclivities than Trump.

  • Targeted therapy produces fewer side effects

        “I had prostate cancer,” said Don Toms.

        Toms, who lives in the Bedford area, did research before opting on a treatment for his cancer. He said he didn’t want surgery because, he said, prostate cancer surgery often leaves a man incontinent.
