    Amazing

    program

        On Monday, July 5, my daughter began a two week drama camp run by Mickey Vanderwerker and Margie Skalka at the Little Town Players Theater (in Bedford). I just want to give a shout out to this amazing program.

        In only three days, my daughter has learned so very much. It is all done in a fun and loving atmosphere and I have to tell you at $60 for two weeks of 2 1/2 hours each day, it is quite a deal!  I want to thank them for their hard work with our children.

  • Not distorted history, but a PR disaster

        Two things I’ve heard from two different people in the last few weeks mystify me.

        Actually, only one mystifies me — Robin Reed’s letter to the Bedford County Board of Supervisors. Rick Howell’s “The Liberal Agenda” column last week doesn’t really surprise me, considering the source.

  • We shouldn’t bank on bailouts

    The free flow of money is fundamental to our capitalist system and the entrepreneurial spirit that defines America.  Investors vote with their wallets and the best ideas prevail.  However, this only works when the government does not inject itself into otherwise private matters.

     

  • Even RNC chief doubts Afghanistan

        It’s not easy for anyone to be the head of either the Republican or Democratic national committee when your party is out of power at all levels in Washington. For Michael Steele, it’s always been a bumpy ride.

        Steele was battling a buzz saw last week after some less than enthusiastic comments about the war in Afghanistan, a war that conservative Republicans are required to support.

  • Diamond action heats up

    Loaded.

    That’s what this year’s Big Island Post 217 entrant in American Legion baseball is: flat-out loaded.

  • Getting 'em started early

    Rome was not built in a day.

    In fact, it was quite a lengthy process to build that city.

  • Sports commentary: America's game

      World Cup enthusiasm rolls on. It continues in this country, unaffected by our team’s ouster by those pesky Ghanaians (Ghanians? Ghananians?).

  • Reed brings love of history to new post

        Robin Reed has loved history since he was a boy traveling around the East Coast with his family visiting every historical site they could find. The fact that his chosen profession deals with telling the stories of history comes as no surprise.

        “To make it a profession is one of the great joys of my life,” states Reed, the newly selected president of the National D-Day Foundation. “I’m an avid living history historian.”

  • Bedford Christmas Station to hold raffle

        Like many organizations that help people going through tough times, the Bedford Christmas Station is facing the double challenge of a drop in donations and an increase in need.

  • BDVS recognizes advocates for victims

    Fifteen area law enforcement personnel were honored during the seventh annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Awards ceremony held last Wednesday. The goal of the event is to recognize those who have promoted safety for domestic violence victims and their children along with holding the batterers accountable for their actions.
