  • The Good News

    Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.  And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
        And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

  • The gift of the conservatives

        I want to thank Rick Howell for his “Cracker Jack box prize” version of American history in his Liberal Agenda last week. I’ve always thought that liberals must be either ill informed or perverse to believe the things they profess to believe. Mr. Howell has a university degree but, not knowing what all is in the curriculum behind a political science degree, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. It may be a bit light on history.

  • Farmers Market takes a step forward

        The community is taking a fruitful step forward as it implements changes to the Bedford Farmers Market.
        The changes should yield a good harvest for both area farmers and their customers.
        The proposed changes are the result of community meetings and a management team overseeing the transition of the market.

  • Different cases, different facts

        One of the negative aspects of our history is that some racial and ethnic groups have been shown favors that others did not get. Black people got the short end of the stick in that respect for generations even after slavery was ended. Black people were subject to de jure discrimination in the South until the 1960s and de facto discrimination in the North for much longer.

  • Recognizing the sacrifice of our nation’s veterans

  • It’s time to get back to work

    You’ve probably heard the old phrase, “good things come to those who wait.” Well, the American people have been waiting over six years for the construction of the. I’d say that’s long enough, wouldn’t you?

     

  • In support of Virginia property rights

    By Bruce Shelton
    SMMBA President

  • The faces of hunger

    By Helen Fiaschetti
    Administrative Manager
    Bedford Christian Ministries

        If you were to look out at the sea of faces in the waiting room, you would find the faces of hunger, coming for whatever we can provide from what has been lovingly donated by residents of Bedford for the needy of our county. 

  • What, exactly, is a ‘unit’ committee?

      
        This week, I’d wanted to write about the clear signs that national Republicans – who are about to take over the whole Congress – are already acting as extremists and abandoning any notion of working with the president. But that subject will wait.
        The fact is, I’ve been doubled up in laughter-inspired hysterics over the recent actions of Bedford County Republicans. I just couldn’t let the subject go without comment.

  • ‘Democrats’ need to face reality

        It’s amazing the way “Democratic” party hacks so reliably resort to accusations of racism for their own partisan political purposes.
        Most of the time they try to say that President Obama’s critics are racists. How could anyone oppose the policies of Barack the Magnificent, the glory of whose splendor, like the rising sun, brings light and life to all? They must just hate him because they are racists.
