    Amazing

    program

        On Monday, July 5, my daughter began a two week drama camp run by Mickey Vanderwerker and Margie Skalka at the Little Town Players Theater (in Bedford). I just want to give a shout out to this amazing program.

        In only three days, my daughter has learned so very much. It is all done in a fun and loving atmosphere and I have to tell you at $60 for two weeks of 2 1/2 hours each day, it is quite a deal!  I want to thank them for their hard work with our children.

  • Not distorted history, but a PR disaster

        Two things I’ve heard from two different people in the last few weeks mystify me.

        Actually, only one mystifies me — Robin Reed’s letter to the Bedford County Board of Supervisors. Rick Howell’s “The Liberal Agenda” column last week doesn’t really surprise me, considering the source.

  • We shouldn’t bank on bailouts

    The free flow of money is fundamental to our capitalist system and the entrepreneurial spirit that defines America.  Investors vote with their wallets and the best ideas prevail.  However, this only works when the government does not inject itself into otherwise private matters.

     

  • Even RNC chief doubts Afghanistan

        It’s not easy for anyone to be the head of either the Republican or Democratic national committee when your party is out of power at all levels in Washington. For Michael Steele, it’s always been a bumpy ride.

        Steele was battling a buzz saw last week after some less than enthusiastic comments about the war in Afghanistan, a war that conservative Republicans are required to support.

  • More concerns raised

    The pressure continues to build for the National D-Day Memorial Foundation to remove the bust of Josef Stalin from the Memorial grounds.

        Congressmen Bob Goodlatte and Tom Perriello weighed in on the issue last week as did the Bedford County Board of Supervisors. They all called for the bust to be removed.

  • Our country is going to have to take some big steps to reduce our debts
  • The Stalin bust has no place at the D-Day Memorial

    As we gather together in the midst of family BBQ's, parades and fireworks commemorating our nation’s independence, we also remember and honor our founding fathers and their vision of a great and free nation.  Nearly 170 years later, 35 boys from Bedford stormed the beaches of Normandy as part of the D-Day invasion with hundreds of thousands of allied forces.  These brave men answered the call to service and many paid the last full measure of devotion so that we can enjoy the freedoms and liberties envisioned by our founding fathers.
