  • Liberty ladies leave Moneta with pair of wins

     

    The ladies of Liberty marched into Moneta to tangle with the Golden gals of Staunton River.

    When all was said and done, there were a couple of buses of Lady Minutemen singing with joy.

    The Liberty soccer crew flexed some defensive muscle in dispatching the River women by the score of 3-1.

    A bit later that Friday evening, the Liberty softball crew took care of their diamond counterparts in convincing fashion, 5-2.

  • Working together with our local leaders to enhance our communities

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Over the past week, I had the opportunity to meet with local elected officials throughout Central and Southside Virginia who join me in representing the two cities, 21 counties, and 39 towns that make up Virginia’s Fifth District.  It is an honor to work alongside these state Senators, Delegates, members of Boards of Supervisors, City and Town Council members, School Board members, and other Constitutional Officers to serve the fine people we represent.

  • Celebrating American agriculture

    Many days, long before the sun rises and long after the sun sets, farmers across the nation are hard at work producing the food and fiber products we rely upon. From the very foundation of the United States to the present day, these hardworking farmers and ranchers have held a place at the core of our economy.

     

  • Tax-rate increase overdue

        I am not a tax and spend kind of guy, but that statement will be debated based on my next statement.  Bedford County is overdue for a real estate tax increase. 
        What other commodity or service expense has stayed flat since 2007?  Since 2011 the County has collected about $1 million less each year in revenue and left that amount in your pocket.  Have you noticed?

  • Want to talk about the budget?

    Bedford County, District 3 Supervisor

        Spring greetings to all.  
        Your Board of Supervisors is nearly finished with the budget process.  Clearly there are more needs than funds, consequently some needs will go unmet. 

  • Long, hard winter will soon give way

    My mother lives for the springtime.
        Until she can get out among the flowers, the birds, and the sunshine, winter is simply a cruel ordeal to be endured.
    Already in mid-February, she was going on about the robins in her Bedford County front yard, certain that they were “a sign of spring.”

  • Sports commentary: What a (b)racket!

     

    Well, my bracket is already marred.

    But, then again, it's highly likely that yours is, too.

    It has been proven, fairly conclusively, that nobody will ever have a perfect bracket.  The odds of doing so are something along the lines of 9.2 quintillion to one.

    I don't know what a quintillion is, exactly.  I do know it's larger than a quadrillion, which is bigger, still, than a trillion.  So, it's big.
