        For generously supporting the “Dare to Care” TLC (toys for local Children) “A Child’s Christmas” program!
        We were worried about the Toy Count, with us not having the Flotilla this year but, the SML community pulled through for the children! This year, we’ve collected around 2500 toys, for our local children of need!
        We would like to thank Westlake Auto for all they do for our toy drive!

    An educated idiot

        Recently Rick Howell wrote an article in your paper trying to make the case that college educated people voted in waves for Hillary Clinton in the last election -- trying to make the point that uneducated Trump voters were stupid. The only thing it proves to me is that when you educate an idiot -- all you get is an educated idiot.

    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)

    Give Trump a chance

        In a column two weeks ago called “Liberal Agenda” the writer expressed an infatuation for Hillary Clinton that a great wave of middle-class, tax-paying voters in our democratic country did not agree with.

    Stupid people?

        I am not a bit amused to be called stupid for voting for Donald Trump.

    A good hire

        I was reading this week’s newspaper, and on the front page was a story about a policeman named Chevon Thompson.
        I had the pleasure of meeting him at the YMCA about a month ago. He was working out in the weight room. And I said to myself, man that’s a big fellow. After watching him for a little while working out, I finally asked him which football team he played for.

    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.
