    My perspective on the sheriff

        As a retired DC cop, living at the lake, I would like to comment on some comments I read in your paper last week.
         I am a fairly new resident to the county but my wife’s family has lived here for approximately 20 years. My remarks are in reference to, and support of, another ‘alumni’ of the Metro Police Department, Sheriff Brown.

    Same sex marriage

        The Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage will be discussed for years to come. That pronouncement will not alter deeply held religious beliefs grounded in a biblical worldview. It determines how authentic biblical Christians perceive life and provides the best explanation for life.

    Bashing
    conservatives

        In his June 3 article Mr. Howell must have reached the level of all those Liberals and other  Democrats he so dearly loves. His column seems to have deteriorated in nothing   more than a “bash all Republicans/Conservatives” swill chart.

    Thanks for help

        The Bedford International Alliance thanks those who helped with the Bedford Boys Cemetery Ceremony on Memorial Day.
        The flowers were donated by Frederic’s Flowers and Rapid Printing. We thank American Legion Post 54, the Rev. Jack Davis, Mrs. Lisa Butler and the members of the BIA who participated in the ceremony

    Problems with article
     
        I have a new bone to pick with John Barnhart regarding his article about Appalachian Vapors.

  • Fifth district veterans deserve better

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    This past week, as our nation came together on Memorial Day to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, I traveled across the Fifth District and met with many veterans from Henry County to Brunswick County and from Fauquier County to Danville.

    Innocence lost

        This week a “little bit of innocence” was lost from Bedford.
        As the nice, quiet evening progressed something was taken from Bedford. Yes, it was only two Rocking Chairs that disappeared from the Welcome Center but it was a whole lot of trust and pride that was the largest loss.

    Inaccuracies in argument

        So now Mr. Donald M. Campbell wants to join the tit for tat and I find myself defending the Museum again against inaccuracies.
        The Museum is not a charity, it is a non-profit corporation that employees 5 tax-paying Bedford County residents and also provides employment for a large number of retired volunteers. I wish our funding was automatic, it is not.
