    Coming together


        Every so often you hear of communities coming together during a crisis.  With  the events on February 10, the Huddleston community did this by coming  together to assist in a fire that partially destroyed the home of Haden,  Cyndi, Kevin and Kimberly Nichols on Bethesda Road.

    No Stalin bust, please


        I have lived in Bedford County since 1969 and my grandmother, who was born in Bedford County, frequently shared her memories and affection for the county.  I share this to acknowledge that I am no stranger to Bedford and its history.  With that in mind, these are my observations about this Stalin bust fiasco.

    Thankful for support


        December 2010 marked our fifth year of providing Christmas assistance to low-income families in Bedford City and Bedford County.  Each year, I gain precious memories of events related to our mission of serving low-income families in a dignified and respectful manner.  When thinking about Christmas  2010, I can also be thankful and grateful as I remember what did not happen.
