  • Trump’s supporters should be ashamed

        There have been two separate stories lately in the New York Times and the Boston Globe about the “near panic” that’s said to be gripping the national GOP over Donald Trump.
        Party leaders – the establishment, if you will – are very worried about the possibility that Trump could actually be the nominee. They know that would be political suicide, handing the Democrats the White House again without even a serious fight.

  • Bolsheviks

        I often refer to the left wing of the “Democratic” Party as its Bolshevik wing and Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda in last week’s Bedford Bulletin gave a good illustration as to why I do that. By the way, Mr. Howell does a great job of articulating the positions of his party’s left wing. I always urge people to read it and then consider whether they really want to vote for the candidates who these folks like.

        According to Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Wes Nance, on Aug. 19, 2014, a couple discovered that somebody had tried to burn their vehicle in their driveway. Day admitted to the arson and said she thought the vehicle belonged to the couple’s daughter, who was a romantic rival.

        On Sunday November 29, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office received a call to Johnson School Road in Thaxton about dogs being shot at. Bedford County deputies responded and identified Jeremy Lee Johnson, 25, as the suspect, according to the BCSP.

  • Getting to the truth

        All Commonwealth’s Attorney Randy Krantz wants is for those testifying on the 1975 abduction case of sisters Sheila and Katherine Lyon to tell the truth.
        Recently three people involved in the investigation—and related to the man charged with abducting and murdering the two sisters—were in court because Krantz believes they weren’t forthcoming with the truth.
