  • Gillespie takes unlikely aim at Warner

        The Virginia Republican Party nominated Ed Gillespie on Saturday to run against incumbent Democrat Mark Warner for the U.S. Senate.
        Gillespie easily dispatched two lesser rivals, and was nominated on the first ballot. Newspapers reported that even though some 4,200 delegates had registered, less than 3,000 of that showed up and voted.

  • An example of liberal perversity

    I never see Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda before I write my column, so anything that looks like coordination between the two is not due to deliberate planning. Sometimes it’s due to two political minds running in the same gutter. In other cases, it’s pure coincidence. Last week’s Bedford Bulletin witnessed one of those coincidences.

  • D-Day dinner Chance to recognize veterans for their service

        Bernard Marie has observed the anniversary of D-Day with a dinner for D-Day veterans, with the public invited, for years.

        Friday was the 30th dinner, and it will be the last.
        Marie was 5 years old — he had just turned five the day before — and living in one of the French towns facing Omaha Beach when American troops landed. One of his memories of that time is an American soldier giving him a chocolate bar.

  • Body Camp Elementary to close after one more year

    They'll do their best to make it a year to remember.

    Those were the first thoughts from staff and parents of students from Body Camp Elementary who will have one more year at the school before it closes.

  • It’s the administration’s job to enforce the law

    For families across the nation, knowing that their communities are safe is a top priority. But, what happens when the President and his officials refuse to enforce our laws and release criminals onto our streets?

     

  • Keep Body Camp open

    By Katie Baltzelle
    Body Camp

        I am here to represent Body Camp Elementary School, and our children.
        My son just finished his 4th year at BCES. A school where every teacher and staff member knows him by name. A school where the teachers have provided such efficient education, my son has made honor roll on every report card, every year he has been there, and also scored a 600 on his 3rd grade SOL. 

  • This is ‘not the Virginia way’

        In a recent column, Governor Terry McAuliffe advocated Virginia fully embrace Obamacare by expanding Medicaid.  It is a position to which he is firmly committed, having pledged during last year’s campaign that he would “not sign a budget in Virginia unless the Medicaid expansion is included.”

  • Unrelenting gun violence strikes again

    The latest gun massacre in the United States struck this time in California, and sent the angry father of a victim on a personal gun control crusade.
        These events have now become so routine in America that they basically contain the same elements: Shooter (disturbed, fired, romantically rejected, depressed, etc.) enters building (school, workplace, shopping mall) and kills as many people with a gun as he can before killing himself.

  • Religious persecution is coming

        Facts are indeed stubborn things, as Rick Howell wrote in the Liberal Agenda last week. Liberals are also stubborn things although I often tend to think of them as more perverse than stubborn.
        One area where their perversity comes to fore is how they view the Constitution. When it suits them, they view the Constitution as a rubber document that can be stretched in any direction they choose. At the same time they can be hard-nosed strict constructionists when something can be used to support their social agenda.
