    Profits over
    protection

        “Abortion clinics in Virginia are ‘beautiful, immaculate, clean facilities” declared NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Executive Director Tarina Keene in a January 17, 2013, interview, with HuffPost Live. 
        Perhaps Ms. Keene was being led through the facilities blindfolded; how else could she ignore the unsanitary conditions, the blood splattered doorways, bloody surgical scrubs, untrained assistants or unlicensed abortionists?  

  • A renewed opportunity to forge a brighter future

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    It is a great honor to represent Fifth District Virginians in Congress, and I am grateful for and humbled by the opportunity to continue serving you for the next two years. Tuesday’s election significantly changed the dynamics in Washington, and with that change comes renewed opportunities to advance policies that will address the most pressing issues facing our country.

    Stakes too high

        When I was on line for our last election, two women behind me were talking. One said, “Who are we even voting for?” Her friend answered, “Oh, I don’t know - I just always vote for the Republican!” The stakes are too high for us to have this view.

    Supports Gillespie

        After checking with the city library the following information was provided.  Noticing that Robert C. Sarvis, is again, running as a third-party I am very concerned that he is going to spoil another election.
        Records indicate that in 2011 Robert C. Sarvis ran, unopposed, in the 35th District as a Republican in the senate race against Democrat Dick Saslaw, and lost.

        Kudos to Bedford Parks and Rec.
        Many times it is easy to complain about things, but this letter is to praise the new Parks and Rec administration.
        Since they recently took over, there have been more activities such as bus trips, cards, bingo and classes and new activities and events also like a picnic in the park.    
        Come on people, it only works if y’all take advantage of what’s offered.
        Call Parks and Rec for more info.
