    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.

    Thanks Sheriff Brown

     
        I hope Mr. Hackworth was watching Good Morning America this morning (Monday, Dec. 13) on WSET when Ed Smart, father of Elizabeth Smart, talked about the sexual predator, Brian Mitchell, kidnapping his daughter Elizabeth Smart in June of 2002. 
        Smart was found alive nine months later on March 12, 2003. Mr. Smart also spoke in glowing terms about the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces and how important they are in protecting our children.

    Not truthful


        Reference is made to the three letters on 11-17-10 concerning my letter of 11-10-10 about Sheriff Mike Brown.
        First, it sounds as if Sheriff Brown is telling three different people what to write as they all have the same characteristic style. One, they’re not true; and two, they try to put the blame on me instead of where it belongs, Mike Brown.

    Generous
    community


        At this time of giving thanks, the Food Pantry at the Bedford Christian Ministries would like to thank all the churches that have donated so generously to us this year. 
        We appreciate every can and box you have given and the hungry in our community do too.  We also need to thank the managers, employees and most of all the customers of the Food Lion on Longwood Avenue. They have come through for us beyond our wildest dreams.

    Support is
    tremendous


        I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the incredible work of the Gala committee and the extraordinary generosity of the Bedford community. On Oct. 21 Bedford Domestic Violence Services held the Purple Gala to benefit victims of domestic violence. The Gala live and silent auctions featured items donated from Bedford businesses and individuals. The generous contributions and amount of support received was tremendous.
