  • A moral victory on Medicaid expansion

        It certainly took long enough, but Virginia will now see about 400,000 of its neediest people access health care through an expansion of the federal Medicaid program.
        In a historic action May 30, both houses of the General Assembly passed budgets that included the long-sought expansion. It was a victory for Governor Ralph Northam, who has signed the law, and for the freshmen class of Democratic lawmakers who nearly flipped the House in 2017.

  • Government does something right

        I have a very skeptical view of the government’s ability to do anything efficiently. However, I have to compliment the Bedford’s town government on doing a couple of things right.
        One of these things concerns the former Bedford Middle School building and Old Yellow. Town Council and Town Manager Bart Warner and his staff seem to be moving promptly to respond to a developer proposal to renovate and repurpose both buildings.

    Despite retiring the final 14 batters during Friday’s 3A State Semifinal game against Cave Spring, Liberty’s magical playoff run came to an end in a 3-0 loss.

     

    With the Liberty fans that traveled nearly an hour looking on from right outside the fence, Head Coach Mike Thompson and the Liberty softball team huddled up and embraced one final time in the 2018 season.

     

  • Politics makes strange bedfellows

    By Lee Walker

        On Saturday, I attended the 5th District GOP meeting in Nelson County.  37 members of Republican “Leadership” were picking the GOP Nominee for Congress to replace Congressman Tom Garett, who due to personal reasons, “an alcohol problem,” had decided to retire.

  • The GOP’s truly awful Senate candidates

        Virginia Republicans will go to the polls next week to pick a challenger to the popular, talented U.S. Senator Tim Kaine. They have a choice of three candidates, at least two of whom are ridiculous options.
         Even as a proud and partisan Democrat, I miss the days in Virginia when we could count on Republican candidates to have integrity, experience and good judgment. We knew they were qualified, and we knew the state wouldn’t be embarrassed if they were elected.

  • Remembering D-Day

        I hope I remembered to bring my sunscreen and a hat. Today is the National D-Day Memorial’s annual commemoration of D-Day and I’ll be up at the Memorial covering it. Hopefully, the weather will be bright and sunny, and as long as I remembered the aforementioned items, I’ll be OK. If not, I will get fried.
        I also hope all of you will head up to our hilltop memorial for the commemoration. We are truly blessed to have a world class memorial right in our backyard.
