    Supports Johannessen for Council

        Bruce Johannessen is not a politician.
        Bruce Johannessen is:
        • A gentleman
        • Intelligent, thoughtful and a great listener
        • A dedicated volunteer and involved with myriad civic activities, including the Bower Center for the Arts, The Bedford Public Library, The Elks Lodge, and Emory & Henry College
        • Reflective, fair and balanced

    Support for Johannessen for Town Council

        While I am somewhat biased in my opinion, I want to express my support for Bruce Johannessen in his campaign for a seat on Bedford Town Council.
         In addition to a distinguished career with the VA Employment Commission where he worked for economic development Bruce has been active in our community through a leadership role in the local Elks and a long tenure on the Bedford Town Planning Board and officer on the Friends of the Library board.

    The facts

        What did you think of  the rebuttal to my editorial?  Maybe my editorial will become a hatchet and cut Mike Brown’s lying tongue out.
        For example, the writer states that I don’t appreciate law enforcement or know or care about the facts, also that the state police don’t know how to work an accident involving “hydroplaning.” All his above statements are false. He and Mike Brown write alike-lie-lie-lie. I wonder if he helped write that letter.

    Supports Garrett

        Tom Garrett is the only candidate who will preserve my 2nd Amendment rights.
        As a concerned female citizen who travels frequently, I rely strongly on my right to carry a firearm for protection.

    Republicans made a good choice

        Cheers to the Republican Party of Virginia for voting for a primary rather than a mass meeting to select their 2017 candidates!

    We have never been safe

        Regarding Mr. Barnhart’s comments in “We are no longer safe”  (8-24-2016); when have we ever been completely “safe”? Is a terrorist attack possible? Of course. Is it any more probable than your being in a car accident or run over in the grocery store parking lot, not really. Life is a risk.

    Supports Hillary

        Anyone who has seen those yellow school buses knows school has started. Anyone who has turned on a television, or logged onto the internet knows this is an election year. An election year usually means schools spend a great deal of time teaching our children the electoral process.

    Stifling growth
        The liberal Democrats refer to themselves as progressives, but when it comes to economics they promote just the opposite.
        Thanks to capitalism the USA became the most advanced civilization since the fall of Rome, yet the progressive liberals want to stifle this growth with socialism and over regulation. The thing that did the most to advance civilization was using fossil fuel for heat and energy, but the progressive Democrats are deceiving the public with the global warming scare tactics.

    Supports Hillary Clinton for President

        I support Hillary Clinton for President. Why, you might ask.
        Ninety-six years ago women in this country gained the right to vote, yet representation of women in public office has been anemic. Women constitute 51% of the population and our voices and perspective need to be represented in all governmental positions, including the presidency.

    God was
    with him

        Praise The Lord – Prayers were answered. I prayed all day for God to put Timothy where people could see him, others prayed too. Thank God for He did just that.
