When I was on line for our last election, two women behind me were talking. One said, “Who are we even voting for?” Her friend answered, “Oh, I don’t know - I just always vote for the Republican!” The stakes are too high for us to have this view.
After checking with the city library the following information was provided. Noticing that Robert C. Sarvis, is again, running as a third-party I am very concerned that he is going to spoil another election.
Records indicate that in 2011 Robert C. Sarvis ran, unopposed, in the 35th District as a Republican in the senate race against Democrat Dick Saslaw, and lost.
Kudos to Bedford Parks and Rec.
Many times it is easy to complain about things, but this letter is to praise the new Parks and Rec administration.
Since they recently took over, there have been more activities such as bus trips, cards, bingo and classes and new activities and events also like a picnic in the park.
Come on people, it only works if y’all take advantage of what’s offered.
Call Parks and Rec for more info.
I want to thank Mr. Hatchworth for another ‘rant’ filled response...never lets us down. Seems like it’s just my lucky week again...I am in town from a long haul and get to read the never ending saga of The Lone Hackworth vs Sheriff Brown.
Hurray for Sheriff Brown. He has received another award, gotten his picture in the paper for more undeserved recognition.
The article goes on to say that the award is given “to an individual in recognition of their contributions to and support of the National Sheriff’s Association President.” This means you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.
As the Bedford County School Board moves to make cuts in it's budget, again more schools are facing the real probability of closing next year. This time it will either be Thaxton Elementary or Bedford Primary that will be axed by the board.
Since the Franklin County Board of Supervisors are the elected representatives for the Franklin County Districts, we feel it most important to bring a significant problem to their attention. Many of us, after enjoying many years on our 22,000-acre Resort Lake, find ourselves unable to sell our homes.
I noted in your August 6, 2014, edition a letter to the editor from Ellen Mackey concerning the action of the Town Council to discontinue curbside recycling. Mrs. Mackey in her letter mentioned a July 24, 2014, meeting of Council at which many pro recycling citizens expressed their disappointment in the discontinuance of curbside recycling.
