  • And, speaking of Loretta Lynch

        It comes as no surprise that FBI Director James Comey decided not to refer charges against Hillary Clinton. It’s not because I believe Comey honestly believes no charges are warranted. It’s because I believe Comey was doing what his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told him to do.

        Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown was watching the local news Thursday night when the station broke to the national story of the tragedy in Dallas in which a lone gunman killed five police officers and wounded seven others during what had been a peaceful protest of police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.

  • Extra Points: Fall is coming

    This past weekend was an adventure for me. I was able to witness my first ever Professional Wrestling event. It was definitely very entertaining, but I am still unsure that I will become a fan.

  • Teacher puts on fundraiser that helps student see

        Some special glasses, which look like something out of Star Trek, are making it possible for Chris Ward to see.

        Ward, who was a 5th grader at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School last year, was born blind. The optic nerves that are supposed to connect his eyes to his brain did not fully develop. He has very limited vision in one eye and none in the other. Without the glasses he can only see something by holding it less than an inch from the eye.
