    Is it true?

         Thank God they’ve finally abolished the no texting while driving law! What an inconvenience that’s been.
        And also, the old law about coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. What a couple of silly laws to have. I figured there was just not enough money in it to enforce those two laws, let alone the other stupid laws like headlights on when it is raining or no loud music within 50 feet of a business.

  • Bathrooms? You gotta be kidding me

        Many years ago, I read a book called “Second Serve,” written by a former doctor and tennis professional named Renee Richards.
        This wasn’t your standard autobiography of a self-obsessed athlete interested in telling her story to make even more money. By today’s standards, it was a ground-breaking introduction to what we now know as being “transgender.”

  • Becoming more lethal
  • It’s no fad

        Personalized learning isn’t a Bedford County idea; it’s the way the world is now operating.
        Check out most college and university academic programs and you will find students being offered, and many compelled, to take online courses as part of their studies. Many students opt to spend their entire college career in an online program. Even the smallest colleges are utilizing this type of learning model.
