  • Opinions vary on plan

        After working on reversion negotiations for three years behind closed doors, the city of Bedford and Bedford County’s elected officials took action in two open meetings last week to move forward with an agreement. Views by area citizens on what it will mean varied this week. Many wanted to learn more about the plan now that it was out in the open.

  • Pollard votes 'no'

        Board of Supervisors Chairman Annie Pollard cast the lone dissenting vote Wednesday against the agreement which would allow the city of Bedford to revert to town status.

        Pollard didn't make any statements about her vote during the meeting, but after said her "no" was in response to the needs of her district's constituents. Some of those would eventually become a part of the town of Bedford as part of a negotiated boundry expansion for the town.

  • BMS marks 10th anniversary of 9/11

    Bedford Middle School marked the 10th anniversary of 9/11 Monday morning.

        It was the first school day after the actual anniversary, on Sunday. It also recalled an event that has receded far enough into the past that none of these middle school students can remember where they were on Sept. 11, 2001. They were too young at the time.

  • Forest Elementary students honor their local heroes

        Monty Coleman, assistant fire chief with the Forest Volunteer Fire Department, believes the events of Sept. 11, 2001, should be remembered more than they are.

        “In my eyes, it’s a shame we don’t remember it every single day,” Coleman said Friday.
        That’s why he was more than willing to attend Forest Elementary School’s 9/11 Commemoration assembly held at the school last week.

        You have to be committed.

        And, she added, “you have to be lucky.”
        Jennifer Simard has been both and she shared with the JF students in Spence White’s drama classes the ups and downs of pursuing an acting career.

  • Honoring the true heroes of September 11th

    By all accounts September 11, 2001 started out as a typical Tuesday. Most Americans were simply going about their daily lives -- children were headed to school, folks were commuting to work. But all of that changed in an instant. At 8:46 that morning the first hijacked airplane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. And in that moment life for all Americans was forever changed.
