  • A message to our graduates: It’s just the beginning
  • Money wasted

        Time is money.
        For a board of supervisors that prides itself on its thriftiness, the inability to get in tune with the school board and address the construction of a new middle school in the Liberty attendance zone makes little sense.
        This issue isn’t new.
        It’s been on the table for years and was a major player in the reversion agreement between the county and Bedford, prior to reverting to town status.
        So why the delay?

  • Obama slips in Greece

        You would think President Barack Obama would have enough on his foreign policy plate to keep him busy — and awake at night.

  • No coronation for Hillary Clinton

        Some months back it was fashionable to think that Hillary Clinton might not have even a single opponent on her way to the Democratic nomination for president.
        But now, the Democratic field – while not resembling the crowded subway train in the other party – is growing.

  • Don’t be scammed!

    By Sheriff Mike Brown

         As economic times get tougher for so many, there are always those who find creative ways to steal your money. Bedford County Sheriff’s Investigators have been receiving numerous reports about scams plaguing our county. Please protect yourself and your loved ones.

  • Reality vs. Reality TV

    By Mike Poff Big Island

        Critics, pundits, parents, Christians and everything in-between across the nations’ media, breakfast tables, and internet enabled tablets are fumbling and stumbling all around the sad revelations regarding the Duggar family, their TV show, their influence, their faith, and their failures. All old Duggar foes sense blood in the water and swarm for the kill. Old allies rally and circle the wagons and the ruckus just rolls on and on in a modern moral bi-polar free for all.

    Gratitude
    for Fair

        I would like to express my gratitude for the opportunity to be involved in the Bedford County Fair over this past weekend.
        This overwhelmingly positive event came at a time when the community needed it most. To me, the number of local public servants that stepped up to volunteer funding, time and energy for others effectively demonstrated the compassion I hope to always see from my home town.

    Let the new board make the choice

        The lame duck coalition of County Supervisors--namely Arrington, Parker  and Pollard, along with incumbent Sharp-- seem to be intent on naming a new County Administrator before leaving office in January. Wouldn’t you think the professional and courteous thing to do would be to hand off that decision to the new Board?
