    Why stay?

        What should convince teachers it’s worth it to stay in Bedford?
        The educators in Bedford County, both teachers and paraprofessionals, have had no meaningful, measurable increase in salary in almost a decade, but our work-load and daily demands have increased immeasurably. After 13 years of service, how am I to convince myself that it will improve in Bedford?

    Supporting law enforcement

        2015?
        We are one race, the human race. The way we think separates and divides us. The demonization of law enforcement that is seemingly becoming more pervasive in our nation should not be happening. This is 2015, we are one half century beyond 1965, or are we?

    It's a mistake to close Thaxton Elem.

        While driving through the town, I was stopped at Bedford Middle school waiting as buses departed.
        I looked over at the school and parking lot area, and thought to myself, “Wow!The parking lot was packed full of children and the buses had just passed me also packed with children.”
         I wondered how in the world could all these children get the proper education with an over crowded school, much less being a strain on our teachers.

    Profits over
    protection

        “Abortion clinics in Virginia are ‘beautiful, immaculate, clean facilities” declared NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Executive Director Tarina Keene in a January 17, 2013, interview, with HuffPost Live. 
        Perhaps Ms. Keene was being led through the facilities blindfolded; how else could she ignore the unsanitary conditions, the blood splattered doorways, bloody surgical scrubs, untrained assistants or unlicensed abortionists?
