    Respect
    pedestrians

        The Town of Bedford has so many things of which to be proud: our beautiful natural scenery, our friendly people,  our small-town style, and our noble D-Day heritage.
        Unfortunately, our treatment of pedestrians who attempt to cross our streets does not fit with the rest of our profile. Drivers all but mow people down!

    A little too far

        Last week Cheryl Evans went out a little too far on a limb to postulate that the perpetrator that tore down Kaine’s sign was a white male with very little formal education whose feelings of impotence were greatly exacerbated by the election of Obama twice.

    Practice the Golden Rule

        At 4:45AM on Election Day, November 6, I put campaign signs for Jennifer Lewis and Tim Kaine beside the drive leading to our local polling place. Someone so offended by this First Amendment exercise mowed them down.

    Support
    Bedford Cares

        Bedford Cares would like to sincerely thank the residents of Bedford County and County Shelter Staff for your commitment to humanely managing the feral county population.
        Because of you, Bedford Cares has helped residents sterilize more than 700 feral cats so far this year. That means 700 cats and untold number of kittens kept out of the county shelter.  
        We’re saving lives and saving taxpayer dollars!

    What to do with the schools

        What to do with the Old Middle, Elementary, High School?
        Look no farther than the Jefferson Center in Roanoke or the Harvester in Rocky Mount to answer that question.  Bedford is sitting on a treasure.

    The price of
    integrity

        A dollar is not enough.
        A big arms purchase price is enough. So we can end the philosophical debate on the subject and proceed with certainty toward a known exacting price.

    It’s been a
    wonderful life

        With the passing of Calvin Woodford this week, our community has lost a visionary and servant whose efforts have shaped the Moneta area for over five decades.

    Kaine will fight for low health care costs

        As politics are an integral part of our lives, on election day we are given the opportunity to elect candidates  who best reflect our concerns. Mine is affordable health care. I suspect it is for most. 
        Corey Stewart has expressed little concern for this troubling issue, while Senator Tim Kaine has made it clear he will continue to fight ever-increasing health care costs. I believe him.
