    Supporting
    traditional
    marriage

        On May 13, 2014, I, along with hundreds of others, traveled to Richmond to stand in support of traditional marriage.  Why does someone close to sixty years of age take a day off from work and travel over two and a half hours on a beautiful spring day? If not me, then who?

    Thank you

        Thank you to all the responders to our home on May 16 to rescue my husband and son from our pond; all dispatchers, Dept. of Game and Wildlife, Fire and Rescue squad and the Bedford County Sheriff’s Department. We are very grateful to all.

    Letting their voice be heard

        With all that is being said in the media today about public education and bullying, can you explain to me why we tolerate public officials using their position to be a bully?

    Disappointed by decision

        Several months ago a representative from the D Day 70th Anniversary Committee went to every high school in the Bedford District requesting that the marching bands participate in the parade.  At that time no one--and I repeat--no one indicated that there would be any problem.

  • We must increase our energy independence and create jobs with the Keystone XL Pipeline

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Holding the VA accountable

    More than 840,000 veterans call Virginia home and more than 20 million reside in the United States. They have served on battlefields across the globe, been stationed at bases both at home and abroad, and spent months, and even years, away from loved ones. They have sacrificed greatly to defend the freedoms you and I enjoy each day. In turn, it is our duty to ensure that they have access to the care needed when their military service is over.

     

  • Restoring the Chesapeake Bay

    By Donald E. Lewis
    Goode

        I agree with the lawsuit against the EPA.
        I am concerned they do not mention the chemical companies involvement in the Chesapeake Bay pollution of the nitrogen and phosphorus. The Monsantos and other big rich chemical companies have over load farmers for years. The cow manure is not the cause as our government is trying to make us believe.

  • Cliven Bundy: A true GOP voter

    You know, I didn’t want to spend a column on that backward Nevada rancher who has made such a fool out of himself trying to graze his cattle for free on government-owned land.
        But he’s so typical of many American conservatives these days that I just couldn’t resist. If they were to truly pay attention here, many Republicans could learn a lesson about how to get back into the good graces of the modern American voter and finally win some national elections.
