    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.

  • Justice for victims of terror

    September 11, 2001, is a day America will not forget. You probably know exactly where you were and what you were doing when tragedy struck at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in a field in western Pennsylvania. But even though 15 years have passed, for the families of those killed or injured on September 11th the memory of that day is all the more real.

     

  • Feral Cat Day and TNR

    By Karin Sherbin

        October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, and locally Bedford Cares will mark the day by organizing volunteers to conduct Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) around the town and county to sterilize feral cats and vaccinate them against rabies.
        TNR is a decades-old method of humanely managing feral cat colonies via sterilization. People care for the colonies until they die out.

  • Women shouldn’t be supporting Trump

        In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s clear and decisive victory over her shameful opponent last week, Donald Trump just couldn’t get over his obsession with the former Miss Universe title holder whom he had so insulted.
        Clinton was right to bring it up, because it’s one of the many examples of the contempt that this mean-spirited man holds for women. Unless a woman is suitable for a beauty pageant or a Playboy centerfold, she means nothing to Donald Trump.

  • No time for finger pointing

        Last week, Gary Hostutler, chairman of the school board, came before Bedford Town Council to talk about Liberty Lake Park again, and its use for the Liberty High School baseball team should it be needed.
        Hostutler spoke at a work session that preceded the regular meeting. This time, he’s looking at the ball field there as a Plan B in case the preferred plan—phasing the gym and middle school construction so that the Liberty High School baseball team won’t become a refugee and can use its own field.
