  • Jesus outranks the pope

        It seems, from reading Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda last week, that Pope Francis is some sort of patron saint for left-wingers. Of course, Mr. Howell claims to be Roman Catholic, so one would expect him to think well of the leader of his church.

  • Supporting our small businesses is vital

  • Protecting the Fourth Amendment in the digital age

    A lot has changed since 1986. Mail was sent with postage stamp, a search engine was called a library, “tweets” were the sounds made by birds, and “clouds” were found only in the sky. In 1986, computer storage was finite and expensive. It was unfathomable to think that something like email would allow users to send and receive electronic communications around the globe for free, much less store vast amounts of your information.

        I was happy to vote this week in the Roanoke City Council and mayoral elections, but not without first showing my “voter ID” driver’s license.
        You know how it is, right? There’s so much “voter fraud” these days. We can be thankful that conservative Republicans are so deeply concerned about the “sanctity” of voting that they’re passing these laws in so many states now.

  • ‘Democrats’ can be funny

        “Democrats” can often be good for a laugh. The most recent humorous thing they have done is to replace Andrew Jackson’s visage on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman’s. The replacement is an effort to be politically correct and it’s funny because of who is being replaced by whom and the fact that it’s being done by the servants of a “Democratic” president.

  • Third Annual Gunnin’ for Gobblers spring turkey hunt

        The Bedford Outdoor Sportsman Association Inc. (BOSA) hosted its third annual Gunnin’ For Gobblers spring turkey hunt on Saturday, April 23.
