  • Faulty electrical wiring cause of fatal fire

        Faulty electrical wiring was the cause of the accidental fire at 708 Grove Street in Bedford on Jan. 17 that claimed the life of a 4-year-old girl, according to Jeff Pauley, fire marshal for Bedford County.

        At a news conference Monday, Pauley said a call about the fire was placed at 4:51 a.m. by a 17-year-old teenager living at the home from a bedroom on the second floor. She had been awake since 4:30 a.m., but about 20 minutes later heard her brother yell that there was a fire in the house.

  • Extra Points: Hunting

        This past week we saw several things in the news about hunting, some good and some probably won’t affect anyone, but first I want to tell you about what I saw on the way home from work this past Monday.
        I have about a 35-45 minute drive home from work every day, which is generally pretty nice. I have a good amount of time to think about my week and decompress before I get home. Not that I have a super stressful job.
