    Local ‘fake’ news

        I don’t know who is having the worst time dealing with fake news, President Trump on national political news, or myself on local news covering Bedford County.
        Two weeks ago, after spending $42 million to pump water from Smith Mt. Lake, the residents who were forced to drink recycled water from Roanoke, were asked to conserve water. After my groundhog attack dog & I took a tour of the full pond on Stoney Creek reservoir we realized that this article was fake news.
