    In need of CPR

        I do not normally watch CNN, in my opinion, their fact-free presentation is not worth the candle.
         I traveled last week and so I was subjected to the 24/7 anti-Trump slime-a-thon that CNN plays in airports.  Free speech gives them the right to broadcast whatever ignorant bile they choose, but their continuous slander of our president comes with a price.

    Kirkland for Sheriff

        I support Deputy James Kirkland as our next sheriff of Bedford County because of his 23 years of experience in law enforcement and his four years in the United States Army.
        He has been a K-9 Handler for 17 years, attended K-9 Explosives Detection School twice for a total of 22 weeks and Explosive Patrol School for two weeks.  Deputy Kirkland also served in Baghdad, Iraq at the Baghdad Diplomatic Support Center for five months as a K-9 Explosives Handler in 2012.

    Object to militarization of police

        What a pleasant evening last night, August 6, for the National Night Out designed to build trust between police and citizens.
        There was rockin’ music with people thoroughly enjoying themselves dancing. Bedford library was there engaging with young children and their parents.
        The Health Department had an informative display especially about important immunizations.

    Solar Power

        I love my $8 power bill!
        While my neighbors and co-workers are complaining about their power bills, we had solar panels installed on our roof last year, right on the carport. It feeds into the power grid and was set up to cover most of our power needs. The unit will pay for itself in a few years and then return $$$ on our investment.

        Sixty years ago the last coal fired steam locomotive on the N&W was put to rest.

    Sure Is quiet

        If you haven’t read Doug Mayhew’s letter of 2-13-19, you certainly should.  He made it clear as to how the inter-circle of the Sheriff’s office works.  This is only a small part of the operation.
