    Open invitation

        I would like to take this opportunity to invite Bedford City and County law enforcement to join me for a grandstand view on the Bedford Speedway.
        The Speedway runs the length of Oakwood Street. You may join me at any time, night or day, in my driveway at 1709 Oakwood St.   From my view most vehicles are beginning to reach top speeds as they cross over the knoll near the City/County line.

    God is in Control theology

        I believe great harm has come from the “God is in Control” theology.

    Thanks for understanding

        Throughout my 40 years with the NPS, I have been grateful for the mutual support provided by staff, visitors, and community members aligned with a common interest, such as the events held to celebrate the Blue Ridge Parkway’s 75th Anniversary in 2010.  As Superintendent of the Blue Ridge Parkway, I come to you now requesting your support and understanding of the reasons for the unkempt appearance of the Parkway.

    Rogues on the march

        Any Bedford County citizen with a pulse knows the Rogue Majority of the Bedford County Board of Supervisors wants to return to no zoning, using lip service to “tweak the rezoning ordinance” rather than follow planning staff research embodied in the comprehensive plan the planning commission‘s resulting zoning ordinance proposed.
        Now another bombshell against good zoning and planning.

    The Harmony

        I attended the Board of Supervisor’s meeting on 5/7/2012 for the rezoning of the “Harmony” project. … The meeting started at 7:30 p.m. for the consideration of a request by B&A Investors to rezone Harmony from AR to PD-1.

    Way to pay

        With the economy and the job market the way it is today, we need to make ourselves stand out in order to be considered for a job.  One way we can stand out is through education, however going to college is expensive, and we see the price of a college education rises each day.

    Closing of schools

        Here we are again having to fight to keep small schools open.
        We appreciate our School Board members, but Gary Hostutler, again thinks we need to close small schools. Our children get a better education than these classes with 25 or 30 students. We the taxpayers should have a say so before Gary Hostutler speaks out before they close any school.
