    Are you glad...

        Are you glad we have the 13th Amendment?  Thank a Republican!  This amendment abolished slavery with 100% Republican support and only 23% Democrats support.
        What about the 14th Amendment?  Once again the Republicans made it happen with 94% support whereas the Democrats were 100% against it. This amendment provided citizenship and equal rights for all.

    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.

    Support for Johannessen for Town Council

        While I am somewhat biased in my opinion, I want to express my support for Bruce Johannessen in his campaign for a seat on Bedford Town Council.
         In addition to a distinguished career with the VA Employment Commission where he worked for economic development Bruce has been active in our community through a leadership role in the local Elks and a long tenure on the Bedford Town Planning Board and officer on the Friends of the Library board.

    The facts

        What did you think of  the rebuttal to my editorial?  Maybe my editorial will become a hatchet and cut Mike Brown’s lying tongue out.
        For example, the writer states that I don’t appreciate law enforcement or know or care about the facts, also that the state police don’t know how to work an accident involving “hydroplaning.” All his above statements are false. He and Mike Brown write alike-lie-lie-lie. I wonder if he helped write that letter.

    Supports Garrett

        Tom Garrett is the only candidate who will preserve my 2nd Amendment rights.
        As a concerned female citizen who travels frequently, I rely strongly on my right to carry a firearm for protection.

    Republicans made a good choice

        Cheers to the Republican Party of Virginia for voting for a primary rather than a mass meeting to select their 2017 candidates!

    We have never been safe

        Regarding Mr. Barnhart’s comments in “We are no longer safe”  (8-24-2016); when have we ever been completely “safe”? Is a terrorist attack possible? Of course. Is it any more probable than your being in a car accident or run over in the grocery store parking lot, not really. Life is a risk.

    Supports Hillary

        Anyone who has seen those yellow school buses knows school has started. Anyone who has turned on a television, or logged onto the internet knows this is an election year. An election year usually means schools spend a great deal of time teaching our children the electoral process.
