  • Scandal swarms over McDonnell, Cuccinelli

    One thing we can always rely on about Republicans is their unbridled devotion to capital and business...in other words, to money and power.
        Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell appears to have let his attachment to “mammon” (the Biblical term for money) get the better of him, or, perhaps better described, of him and his wife, Maureen.

  • Maybe liberals are on to something

        I’ve often wondered why Rick Howell occasionally devotes a Liberal Agenda column to trying to convince readers that homosexuality and abortion, the two top social issues for left-wingers, aren’t incompatible with Christianity. Shortly after his most recent effort, I saw a column, entitled The Myth of Unreligious America,  in the Wall Street Journal that may explain why.

  • Saving the day!

    The Bedford Moose Lodge stepped up, when no one else would. Because of that, Bedford had fireworks after all to help area residents celebrate the Independence Day weekend.

  • Bedford County’s biggest yard sale is a year-long effort

        Members of Resurrection Catholic Church hold what is probably Bedford County’s biggest yard sale every year.

        Called Joyous Junque, the two-day sale is held on the first full weekend of June every year with 30 percent of the proceeds going to the church’s outreach programs and 70 percent going to local charities. This year, they passed out $48,000 to 25 charities, all but one of which are in either Franklin or Bedford County.
        That’s a pretty big yard sale!

  • Helping is still her passion

        Alzheimer’s slowly robs its victim of cognitive abilities but, in the case of Doris Juanita Burnette, her passion for helping others remains intact.

        Burnette began collecting aluminum soft drink can tabs for Ronald McDonald House in 1986 and, remains involved with it in spite of her illness.
