  • Lady Cav volleyballers douse Red Devils

  • Old school rude: sports commentary

      Lately, I’ve been reading a number of analyses and opinions sparked by a few incidents over the past few weeks.

  • All games still a "go"

    They’re not quite the locusts of Pharaoh’s day. Nor do they (yet) qualify as a plague.

        Nonetheless, stink bugs seem to be on their way to those levels. All corners of the county are reporting a greater presence of the little stinkers, and folks want to know why and what they can do about it.

  • Board gives OK to campground

    The Bedford County Board of Supervisors approved a primitive campground off Stone Mountain Road by a 6-1 vote Monday night, following a public hearing on the request.

        The planning commission, last month, voted 4-1 in favor of a proposal by Linda Frisbee to establish a primitive campground, to be called Camp Karma, on her property. The vote came after a public hearing in which a majority of the speakers, many of them apparently angry, spoke against it.

    By the time State Sen. Creigh Deeds rolled into town Saturday, most of the rain-soaked Centerfest crowd had already left for drier ground.

        All, that is, except for the Democratic Party faithful who had been anticipating his arrival. So, instead of shaking hands up and down the streets of Centertown, Deeds held an impromptu rally at Bedford Democratic headquarters.
