  • Kasich to GOP: ‘Evolve, or die’

        As Americans gets ready to vote, much attention is being paid to what will happen to the beleaguered Republican Party afterward should the result actually be what facts suggest.
        For several weeks now, Donald Trump has looked as though he’s about to lead the national GOP over a cliff. His disgusting candidacy has shamed not only himself and his supporters, but has made America an extreme curiosity in the rest of the world.

  • Why I will vote for Trump

        Next Tuesday is the big day. American voters will go to the polls and cast their ballots. The frightening part of this election is that somebody is going to win.
        Back in 2012, I held my nose and voted for Mitt Romney. I did not like Mitt Romney, but I voted for him as the lesser of two evils.

        Last week, the town of Bedford’s Economic Development Authority announced it had entered into an exclusive arrangement with Dogwood Development Company to negotiate and plan the feasibility of the construction of a business-class hotel in the town of Bedford.
        This is the shot in the arm the town needed and a good next step as it seeks to build tourism in the area.

  • Gazebo becomes Eagle Scout project

        One of the requirements for Eagle Scout is a project that will benefit the community.

        The project is not supposed to be easy and the gazebo in Bedford’s Wharton  Garden met the bill. The gazebo had been built around the turn of the century and age and vandalism had taken a toll.
        Chris Garbarini, a Liberty High School (LHS) sophomore and member of Bedford-based Troop 183, took it on as his Eagle Scout project.
