  • Keep Body Camp open

    By Katie Baltzelle
    Body Camp

        I am here to represent Body Camp Elementary School, and our children.
        My son just finished his 4th year at BCES. A school where every teacher and staff member knows him by name. A school where the teachers have provided such efficient education, my son has made honor roll on every report card, every year he has been there, and also scored a 600 on his 3rd grade SOL. 

  • It’s the administration’s job to enforce the law

    For families across the nation, knowing that their communities are safe is a top priority. But, what happens when the President and his officials refuse to enforce our laws and release criminals onto our streets?

    Keep up the
    good work

        I want to thank Mr. Hatchworth for another ‘rant’ filled response...never lets us down. Seems like it’s just my lucky week again...I am in town from a long haul and get to read the never ending saga of The Lone Hackworth vs Sheriff Brown.

    Wasted money

        Hurray for Sheriff Brown. He has received another award, gotten his picture in the paper for more undeserved recognition.
        The article goes on to say that the award is given “to an individual in recognition of their contributions to and support of the National Sheriff’s Association President.” This means you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.

    What about
    Otter River?

        As the Bedford County School Board moves to make cuts in it's budget, again   more schools are facing the real probability of closing next year.  This time it will either be Thaxton Elementary or Bedford Primary that will be axed by the board.

    ‘The lessons of Ferguson, Missouri’

        I have been doing so well.
        I read the “Liberal Agenda”, take a deep breath, put the paper down, and go about my life without responding to it. But I can only take so many lies.

    Lift restrictions

        Since the Franklin County Board of Supervisors are the elected representatives for the Franklin County Districts, we feel it most important to bring a significant problem to their attention. Many of us, after enjoying many years on our 22,000-acre Resort Lake, find ourselves unable to sell our homes.
