  • Cafe on Depot is open in the Electric Company building

        Cafe on Depot officially opened on April 9.

        The cafe occupies the restaurant facility at the east end of the Electric Company building. The building once housed Bedford’s electric department and you can still see the conduits, just below the edge of the roof, that once carried power lines out to the town. The building housed a steam-powered generator 120 years ago.
        Cafe on Depot is owned and operated by Kim Laverty.
        “I love cooking,” she said.

  • Pack the bus

        A soggy Friday didn’t put a damper on the school division’s annual Pack-a-Bus event.

        “We packed it full,” commented Sara Staton, the school division’s director of special services.
        The event, held at Bedford’s Walmart, began at 1 p.m. and ran until 7 p.m. By 5 p.m., all the bus seats had school supplies on them and there was a stack in the back. Donations were still coming in.

  • Right place, right time

        To a certain extent, police officers are never really off duty.

        Even when they are officially off duty, they respond immediately if they see something happening in front of them. That’s what happened, Sunday, when Corporal Sonny Daniels, of the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, was enjoying some time off at Smith Mountain Lake at the state park’s beach.
        “I heard a lady scream,” he said.
