    Liberty was in desperate need of a big play. Aladdin Elroumy was chased out of the pocket by Heritage defenders. Antonio Dumire locked eyes with his quarterback and sprinted towards the end zone.
        

    Elroumy put the ball on a rope and connected with Dumire for a 24-yard touchdown to cut Heritage’s lead to 23-20 with 2:08 to play. Liberty was back in the game.

  • Trump’s policies don’t justify him

        There’s a mentality on the right these days – expressed on this page recently – that, yes, we know what an awful person Donald Trump is, but his policies are good and worthy of support. No, they’re not.
        Where do I start? Well, it’s illegal immigration that has generated the most heat from this awful regime. But as a serious issue, it’s extremely over-rated.

  • Decisive action

        I want to compliment the Bedford County School Board on taking such decisive action two weeks ago. 
        The school board had listened to a presentation by Kenneth Thacker, of VMDO Architects, the firm handling the renovation/expansion project for Forest Middle School. Thacker’s firm has estimated the cost at $28 million, a price Thacker said also included soft costs. This is much higher than the estimate the school board got from another firm last year.

  • BCSO warns of scam

        Over the last couple days, the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office has received a large number of calls from the public reporting they had received a threatening call for a person who claims they are with the IRS.
        The imposter threatens that if they don’t pay their unpaid taxes or return their call, law enforcement will get involved. This is a scam, the Sheriff’s Office warns.

  • Rain Saturday night causes some flooding in area

    Nobody saw a man with a large boat full of animals float by, but people in the Bedford area certainly saw massive amounts of rain over the weekend.
        According to Ben Gruver, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Blacksburg office, the Stewartsville and Chamblissburg sections of the county got the heaviest rainfall Saturday night. Stewartsville received six inches of rain and Chambilssburg saw 5.25 inches. Five inches of rain fell in Bedford.

  • Land use issues

        Land use issues dominated the Bedford County Board of Supervisors meeting Monday night.
        The first was a request  by Everett Road Investments to rezone 52 acres of a 92 acre tract on Everett Road, in Forest, from AR (agricultural residential) to R-1 (single family residential). According to Jordan Mitchell, the county planner who presented the request, the developer intends to build 50 single family houses on the land.

  • Centerfest ‘18

        The weather was great and the crowd even better as thousands showed up Saturday to Bedford for its annual Centerfest celebration.
        Several new attractions helped keep the event fresh for festival-goers and reviews from those attending were good.
        This is the first year Centerfest has been run by the Retail Merchants Association and it didn’t miss a beat.
