  • Appeasement and half-measures make our world more dangerous

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • A better way for tax reform

    When it comes to the current tax system, the list of complaints is far from short – you can probably tick off a few right now. From the lengthy, overly complex tax code to the arcane, bureaucratic operations of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the United States is in need of a new system. There is a better way for tax reform, and it starts with focusing on a tax code and IRS that works for us, not against us.

        As Republicans across the country watch, in horror, the train wreck that is Donald Trump’s campaign, many are no doubt having an existential moment that can only be expressed as, “My God, my God, what have we done?”

  • To the Citizens of Bedford County

    By Mike Brown
    Sheriff

        On behalf of all of us, here at the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, I wish to thank those who continue to express their support and appreciation of law enforcement.  These last few months have been tenuous to say the least, but the expressions of kindness have certainly lifted the spirits of this agency.   Delicious baked goods, fresh fruit and handmade cards from children are all very much appreciated.
