    Source of
    comfort

        As a new resident in Bedford County, I have taken note of the significant number of young people that have lost their lives in auto accidents. As a parent that has lost a child, I would like to share a source of comfort, especially during this time of year. (My youngest son was an Iraq War veteran - a victim of PTSD)
        Compassionate Friends is an international support group for parents and families after a child dies.

    Supports  Johannessen

        We are most fortunate to have several highly qualified candidates running for positions on Bedford’s Town Council this November.
        The two incumbents, Tim Black and Stacy Hailey, have both proven themselves to be dedicated to our community through their participation in assorted committees and organizations, such as Bedford Main Street, the Farmers Market, etc.; their regular appearances at community-wide events; and their active participation in Council meetings and functions.

    Businesses help make program
    a success

        On behalf of Bedford County Public Schools I’m writing to express gratitude to area businesses that helped make this year’s Teacher of the Year program a success. This program rewards our top educators each year and would be impossible without the support we’re provided from business owners throughout the community.

    More info needed

        I just read in my free Thanksgiving edition of the Bedford Bulletin that Liberty High School has hired a new varsity basketball coach. The seven paragraph article relates the new coach’s experience, his intuitive reaction after meeting with the Principal and another coach, and his outlook for the upcoming season.

    Disappointed

        I have never been so shocked - and disappointed,  like a punch in the gut - since I’ve lived on Smith Mountain Lake as I have been during this recent election cycle. 
        The Republican Party of Bedford located its Election Headquarters  at the Lake – next door to the Huddleston Post Office - for the very first time this year and we experienced three instances of theft and vandalism.

    Supporting spouses of law enforcement

        Over the past year law enforcement has had a lot of negative criticism.
        So, we the spouses of the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office and Bedford Police Department are starting a new program to support our spouses in law enforcement. We are in the infant stages of this program; but one of the first items we would like to do is say thank you with this letter.
