  • Some of Hillary’s deplorables

            Hillary Clinton recently called Trump supporters a basket of deplorables. Personally, I think it would be a badge of honor to be called “deplorable” by something as vile as Hillary Clinton. I wonder who all are in her basket of deplorables? Maybe the one union that she declined to seek support from will give us a clue.

    Supports Garrett

        Tom Garrett is the only candidate who will preserve my 2nd Amendment rights.
        As a concerned female citizen who travels frequently, I rely strongly on my right to carry a firearm for protection.

    Republicans made a good choice

        Cheers to the Republican Party of Virginia for voting for a primary rather than a mass meeting to select their 2017 candidates!

  • Not mowing brush anymore

    Bedford

        The town of Bedford is a great place to live.  My family moved here 28 years ago and this is “home” to us.  I take pride in saying that I live in or am from Bedford, Virginia.
        With that said, I come to the point of this letter.  From time to time, I hear of or read an article concerning the need for more tourism in Bedford.  It is at this point that I have become frustrated and/or confused as to a possible cause for this.

  • Education without regimentation

        Schools across America are back in session. Bedford County opened its schools for the new school year on Aug. 15. A few school districts opened earlier and a few later.

    We have never been safe

        Regarding Mr. Barnhart’s comments in “We are no longer safe”  (8-24-2016); when have we ever been completely “safe”? Is a terrorist attack possible? Of course. Is it any more probable than your being in a car accident or run over in the grocery store parking lot, not really. Life is a risk.

     “I’ve been to the moon. I’ve been burned. But more often I’m honored. I’m your American flag.”
