  • Extra Points: A loss is never easy

        A trophy or title does not define a person or a team. The Staunton River team has worked so hard to overcome the stigma that was put on them.

They went to a State Championship and played one of the toughest games all season.
        They played all 48 minutes and never gave up.

        This letter is in response to the article published in the November 2, 2016 edition of the Bedford Bulletin along with conversations I have had with local decision makers concerning the apparent need for an business class hotel to be built within the boundaries of the Town of Bedford.
