  • Sheriff seeks to enhance plans to deal with gang activity

        Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown said more than five years ago gang activity could filter into this county because of its location between Lynchburg and Roanoke.
        Last Monday, his worst fears were realized. That came when the body of a 17-year-old Lynchburg teen was found on Roaring Run Road in Bedford County, having been allegedly murdered by three undocumented illegal aliens with ties to the MS-13 gang.

        The Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce packed the Boonsboro Country Club on Thursday,  March 23, for its annual awards dinner. The main dining room was filled as well as an overflow room. The Chamber is now 78 years old and has 740 members.

        Could the terrorist attack on British Parliament be a cultural canary-in-the-coal-mine for us?  Will the London attacker who repeatedly plunged a knife into a policeman guarding Westminster be celebrated by some Brits as a modern-day Guy Fawkes?

  • Trump clobbered on health care bill

        For a man who imagines himself to be as “tough” as Donald Trump, he sure caved real fast on health care, didn’t he? What was that all about?
        Republicans spent nearly eight years demonizing the Affordable Care Act, obsessing over repealing “The Great Evil Of Our Time,” as I suggest they think of it. There had been no greater priority than beating back the horrors of this awful, communistic law.

  • Reliable allies
