  • House has taken action on an energy plan

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

     

    This past week, I spent time touring the district in order to talk with 5th District Virginians about the most pressing issues facing our country. We made nearly 20 stops across the district and visited with local businesses, families, and individuals to listen to their concerns.

     

  • A Constitutional review: The President’s health care law goes to the Supreme Court

    Two years ago, thousands of Americans came to Washington to protest the passage of President Obama’s health care law. Despite serious concerns regarding the true impact of the legislation and my vote in opposition, this government takeover of health care was signed into law.

     

  • Town Meeting

  • Politics amidst all the pollen

    Spring has sprung, as they say, and most of us are swimming through a veritable ocean of pollen. But it’s a small price to pay for lots of warm sunshine and the birth of new green grass.
        This time of year means baseball. Those of us who follow the Chicago Cubs can again feel hope that this just might be the year for a team that hasn’t won a World Series since 1908, and hasn’t played in one since 1945.
        That hope generally lasts until about mid-May or early June. But we’ll see…

  • An appalling world view

      
        Rick Howell certainly did an outstanding job, in last week’s The Liberal Agenda, of proving my contention that liberals loath our armed forces.
        Apparently, in Liberal World, American soldiers don’t have legal rights. Mr. Howell is quite perturbed that Staff Sergeant Robert Bales’ trial on multiple murder charges is going to take a long time.
        “We’re just not in a rush to convict American soldiers of much of anything, are we?” Mr. Howell wrote.

  • Former contractor now seeks to build local church’s outreach

        John Neff used to build buildings. Now, he’s building a church and a new outreach ministry.

        Neff was president and chief executive officer of Nielsen Inc, a building contractor in Harrisonburg. But several years ago, that changed.
        “In 2005 I sensed a call to the ministry,” he said.

  • Self-checkout comes to Bedford

        A self-checkout system that has been used successfully at the Forest Library for five years has now come to the Bedford Central Library.

        According to Peggy Bias, the Forest Library was the first in the county’s library system to have it.
        “We decided to use it at Forest first because activity was so busy there,” Bias said. “People had to wait in line.”
