    The first quarter of a Bedford County showdown between the Staunton River Golden Eagles and the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers on Dec. 20 placed all momentum on the Cavaliers side. But in the second half the Golden Eagles offense was too much as they took down the Cavaliers 72-58 to remain unbeaten.
        

    The Cavaliers moved the ball with excellent execution and hit their shots in the opening quarter.

  • Are right-wing politics ruining Christianity?

        In the aftermath of the controversial Alabama U.S. Senate race, many are wondering how people who describe themselves as Christians could have gone to the polls and voted for Roy Moore, a man credibly accused of child molestation?
        It’s a legitimate question, and one that harkens back to 2016: How could so many Christians have voted for a man with Donald Trump’s obvious moral shortcomings? It’s not enough to shrug and say, well, Hillary Clinton was worse. That’s a lazy answer, and it’s not accurate, either.

  • Christmas vandals

        I detest vandals. I can understand a thief. He benefits, or at least he thinks he will, from what he stole. Typically what they get from their theft, like the fellow who held up the Walmart this month, is small in comparison with what they will get from the court if caught and convicted. But, at least they think they are going to benefit.
        Nobody benefits from vandalism. The victim of the vandalism loses because his property is damaged or destroyed. The vandal does not gain from his victim’s loss either.

  • A promise kept

        Friday morning President Trump signed into law a promise he had made while on the campaign trail, providing Americans with a sweeping overhaul of the US tax code.
        The law had been adopted by Congress in a major political victory for the Republicans, but as is the case most of the time anymore, the victory came without bi-partisan support.

  • Apple Valley run raised money for Bedford House

    race, held last month, raised $2,500 for Friends of Bedford House.  According to Ronnie Gross, of Gross’ Orchard, this year was the 20th year the orchard sponsored the race. This year’s race drew 102 runners even though a rainy day suppressed turnout.

        “It ends up like a family reunion,” said Theresa Boyes, the race director.
        Boyes also runs in the race. She was a runner when she attended Liberty University. Boyes works as events coordinator at Avoca, the home of Charles Lynch.

  • Groups come together to hire Youth Career Navigator

        On Monday, Dec. 18 area community organizations came together to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to hire a Youth Career Navigator for the Bedford area.
        In the case of area youth who may have experienced hardship, they now have a village of support. The village is comprised of Bedford County Public Schools, Bedford County Department of Social Services, Region 2000 Workforce Development Board and Adult & Career Education of Central Virginia.

  • Five arrested for theft at LMS work site

        Five area individuals have been arrested for charges in connection with tools allegedly stolen from the construction site of the new Liberty Middle School.
        On Monday, Dec. 18 the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office took a report of the larceny of a large number of tools from the  job site. The contractor advised deputies that several tool boxes had been broken into sometime over the weekend.
        The contractor also stated that the stolen tools had a value of $9,000.

  • The Traveler

          Bedford now has a new event venue, located on Va. 43 North, two miles from the Bedford Town limits. It’s called The Traveler.

        Dale and Becky Stanley own the place. Dale is plant manager at Fostek, in Bedford, and Becky owns Trendsetters, a hair salon also located in Bedford. The venue is in a building that was built as a Baptist church in the early ‘50s. The congregation   outgrew it and sold it to Southern Flavoring.

  • Their job: Cut the grass

        O2 emc, the company that built a solar array on the former Schrock Farm now owned by Bedford has to make sure the site doesn’t grow up in weeds. Along with looking unsightly, the stuff would eventually block the solar panels.

        They contracted with Sunraised Farms to maintain the grounds.
        “It’s relatively hilly,” said Brooks Mixon, who is part of Sunraised’s ground maintenance team.
