    Unwarranted attack


        There are some things a man just shouldn’t do in life, like spit in the wind or tug on Superman’s cape.
        After reading Billy Hackworth’s letter to the editor attacking Sheriff Mike Brown, we can add one other thing: using the good name of Alicia Kozakiewicz to attack the great Bedford County Sheriff’s Department.

    Unsung heroes


        Another election has been conducted successfully in the City of Bedford.  And there a group of civic minded citizens who made it possible. 
        I would like to publicly acknowledge the election officials who worked to make this election run so smoothly.  As a recent article in a State Board of Election publication put it  “working Election Day brings a whole new meaning to dog tired!”

    Bedford
    institution enriched the lives of many


        As a small business owner in Bedford County we can sympathize with what’s going on with other small businesses because of the economy.

    Insufficient
    penalty

        Mr. Phillip Parnell was convicted of 14 counts of animal cruelty in Bedford County because 14 animals were found dead on his property.   
        That is VA code 3.2-6570, Misdemeanor 1.  Each count can bring jail time of 12 months and a fine of $2500. That would calculate to possible consequences of up to 168 months (61,320 days) in jail and a fine of up to $35,000.

    Lobster Fest
    a success


        Our 8th Annual Bedford Kiwanis Lobster Festival was a success, again this year!  We thank each and every one of you who chose to dine on a succulent lobster dinner and watch a beautiful sunset, all while helping us raise over $4,000 for Bedford area Kiwanis-sponsored youth programs.  Since the first festival, we have raised nearly $25,000.00 for our community.

    We need a Master-Gardener


        The American economy has become a wilderness --- a garden over run with debt thorns and poison-oak loans. But it is not quite moribund. Although not obvious, it is showing a few  twitchings and up-ticks at the farmer’s market and in industrial production.

    Not the norm


        Around the 20th of August I rode through the cemetery. I’ve lived in Bedford all my life and never had I seen the cemetery look as overgrown. However, the month of August we had a lot of rain and sun. The people of Bedford keep neat well cared for lawns, but much of August they were like the cemetery, they did not look good. Grass went from very brown to extremely green and grew fast. (Very fast.) It was almost wet all day, everyday.

    Farm Tour a great success

    Actions speak louder


        In the midst of appalling fear-provoking political rhetoric that has assaulted us daily through all types of media--even scurrilous billboard signs--it is a relief that Congressman Tom Perriello has refused to add to the pollution.  He encourages debate on issues, not argument, and  recommends that his supporters and staff  research and communicate the facts about issues.
