  • 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.

  • 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.
