  • Extra Points: Hunting

        This past week we saw several things in the news about hunting, some good and some probably won’t affect anyone, but first I want to tell you about what I saw on the way home from work this past Monday.
        I have about a 35-45 minute drive home from work every day, which is generally pretty nice. I have a good amount of time to think about my week and decompress before I get home. Not that I have a super stressful job.

  • 'You have to sleep at night' — BPD officer

        Looking back on what they did on Jan. 18, Sergeant Levi Poole and Josh Peltier reacted the way many men who have done something very brave do—they were just doing their job.

        Poole said anybody on Bedford’s police force would have done it. Peltier notes that you have to be able to sleep at night.

  • McCarren-Ferguson Healthcare Antitrust Exemption must go

  • How we repeal and replace Obamacare

    Unaffordable premiums, deductibles through the roof, losing a doctor you’ve had for years, being dropped from the coverage you need – these are just some of the ways Obamacare isn’t working for Virginians. No amount of patches or delays can resuscitate Obamacare from its failures. The calls, letters, and emails I’ve received about what families, seniors, and businesses have experienced only emphasize this fact. That is exactly why Congress is getting to work on the process to repeal and replace this law.

  • 2017 Session opens

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        The 2017 Session of the Virginia General Assembly was called to order on Wednesday, January 12.  The session will run for 46 days, ending on February 25.
        It promises to be a busy and fast moving session, full of issues important to the citizens of the 19th District.  It is for that reason that I enter the session with unbridled enthusiasm and energy, fully dedicated to resolving important issues in a way that serves the best interests of our citizens.

  • A lot can be accomplished in 46 days

    By Senator Steve Newman

        I am delighted to be back in Richmond to represent you and the rest of my Virginia Senate district.  Once again this year I have the honor of serving as the President pro tempore of the Senate, which means I have the privilege of filling in the Lt. Governor in his absence and helping to lead the Senate. 

  • Session will feature some 2000 pieces of legislation

        The General Assembly is back in session, ready for another year.  A lot has changed since we last met.  November’s elections have not only affected policy in our nation’s capitol, they have already changed the dynamic in Richmond.

  • What does Russia have on Trump?

        I can’t help but wonder: Are a lot of people who voted for Donald Trump now beginning to figure out just how – here’s the “S” word again – stupid it was to do that?
         It could well be, now that we see the almost daily reminders of just how outrageous and regrettable it is that this man will be president. We can now pretty assuredly believe that the Russian regime of Vladimir Putin did everything it could to make him president.
