        As a native of El Paso and a current resident of Bedford, I am deeply disturbed by Mike Forster’s column in the 12/25/13 edition of the Bedford Bulletin.

    Time to retake
    Government 101

        I am an OTR driver and away from home for long periods of time...my wife saves me the papers so that I can catch up on whats happening around the county when I return. I have just returned and have been reading up on ‘happenings’ and I am always amazed at the rantings of one particular person when it come to the Sheriff.

        With Thanksgiving  shortly behind and the constant and continual bombardment of “gotta do this, gotta do that,” I find comfort and joy that I can just pause and reflect a few moments on "Christmas As I Remember It.”
        Perhaps others of my generation who were privileged to grow up in the 1960s-70s era or maybe someone just a little bit older can relate to some of my memories.

  • 2013’s highlight: Painting Virginia Blue!

    Virginia is a blue state now
    It’s glorious for Democrats to be able to state that as simply as noting the color of the sky or the sea.
        Yes, with the Democratic sweep of the 2013 statewide elections, the “Old Dominion” is officially transformed. As I’ve said previously, this isn’t your grandaddy’s Virginia.
