  • Congratulations are in order

  • A good decision

    e would like to offer our congratulations to the Bedford County School Board for their decision concerning Bedford Middle School. It was a wise decision.

  • Historic year falling behind us

    If you haven’t heard, you should be aware that President Barack Obama is Time magazine’s 2012 “Person of the Year.”
        Naturally, his critics will disagree, but then again he has defeated his critics at nearly every juncture, an old habit for him. He’s only lost one election in his life, a Congressional primary in Illinois long before the rest of the country had ever heard of him.

  • Never let a good tragedy go to waste


        Shortly after the election of 2008, a certain “Democrat,” who is now mayor of Chicago, said “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” He was referring to the financial crisis that had dragged America into recession, implying that Congressional “Democrats” could use this as an opportunity to pass a wish list of spending proposals under the guise of economic stimulus.

  • Have a happy, and safe, New Year

        Christmas is always a wonderful time. Although the weather can be gray and gloomy, the lights and decorations and holiday fun provides a cheerful counterpoint to that.
        Now the Christmas Day is behind us, we have one more celebration ahead of us — New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

    Prepare to share

        The holiday season of Christmas spending is truly out of hand.
        Families are over-extending themselves for years to come by “maxing out” numerous credit cards for that one day of celebration. Children are being over-showered with too many material gifts that to some are not really appreciated.

  • Now’s the Time – Resolve to be Ready in 2013!


        New year … new start!  Now is the time for you and your family to make an important resolution for 2013 that won’t cost much and could save a lot of heartache: resolve to be ready for any emergency.
        Whether severe winter storms, tornadoes, spring flooding, earthquakes, hurricanes or something else hits Virginia next year, you can be prepared ahead of time. 

  • Christmas Memories

    By Becky Wuergler
    Bedford

        Christmas in the country in the early 1950’s  was  a Currier and Ives moment.   I remember it well.
        It was a time of family and friends, and less about gifts.  We always had gifts under the tree, but Christmas was so much more than that.
