    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

        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.

    Time for a Change

        Citizens of Bedford, we finally have the opportunity to change the direction of the county on June 9.
        After 50 years of having no voice in the funding of the school system residents of the Town of Bedford, along with those in the county, can vote for members of the Board of Supervisors. Democrats, Independents, and Republicans in districts 5, 6 and 7 - you can all vote in this Republican Primary. It is vital to do so.

  • Our veterans deserve better from the VA

    Last month marked one year since we learned of the gross mismanagement at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that resulted in tragic outcomes for those who have made countless sacrifices to protect our nation’s freedoms. The problems within the VA are the result of a broken system, and though our work is far from over, the House has worked to implement meaningful, structural reforms to ensure our veterans have the care they deserve.

    The town we need

        We apparently now have an increase in our Town real estate taxes for the coming fiscal year.    The Town may need this increase, but how can we keep increasing taxes and at the same time cutting needed access to our Landfill and other services. The cuts started some years ago by cutting the hours of operation.
