    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?

    Restoring Chesapeake Bay

        Thank you, Attorney General Mark Herring for stepping up to defend Virginia’s right to restore the Chesapeake Bay (“AG Herring defends Chesapeake Bay cleanup plan,” April 11).
        The American Farm Bureau Federation and 21 states are suing to stop bay cleanup, calling it an EPA overreach. Virginia has been engaged in cleaning up the Bay for decades, and we have a long way to go to achieve our goal.

  • Jobs remain our top priority

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • An unaffordable mandate

    It speaks volumes when one of the most vocal supporters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, says it will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class” if not fixed. But that is what James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters union, made clear last year in a letter to Democratic leadership in Congress.

  • Obama deserves health care victory lap

    Have you been waiting – because of “Obamacare” - for the United States to fall into the sea? For the mountains to collapse onto the flat-lands and smother us all?
        Or maybe you expected Marx and Lenin to rise from their graves, and cast us all into some Godless, communistic bondage?
