• Second class is first-class
      By Chappy Merritt Special correspondent English Meadows (formerly the Elks National Home) was the venue Saturday night for the second-annual Liberty High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction banquet. 
  • 'Tis the season
      By Mike Forster sports@bedfordbulletin.com   Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.   The above quotation, often directed in a description of mail carriers, was equally apt this past Saturday. Neither gloomy skies nor rainy conditions could prevent nearly 400 couriers from the swift completion of their appointed trip 'round Bedford's famous Loop.
  • Safety is recognized
      The non-profit Sea Tow Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting boating safety and education, is delighted to announce that Captains Rick and Nancy Ellett, co-owners of Sea Tow Smith Mountain Lake (Virginia), are the winners of the first-ever Sea Tow Foundation Hero Award. 
  • Don't go there
      Bedford County is famous for many things.  It has the D-Day Memorial, the Peaks of Otter and Poplar Forest, all national treasures. Bedford County has also earned a reputation as a mecca for deer hunting.  The county, by far, produces the richest harvest of deer in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Beloved coach to retire
      It changed his life. And he certainly changed many lives, in turn. This Saturday, Jefferson Forest Head Coach Jerome Loy will coach the final cross country event of his distinguished career.  The ol' coach is wrapping up his run at JF, hanging up his whistle and going out on top.  However the black and red perform, Loy will walk off the course at Great Meadow a winner.  Certainly, getting another State championship ring to go along with the eight he already has would be a nice parting gift.
  • Another bite at the apple
      Some folks wait their whole lives for that ship to come in. Others get one shot at the brass ring. There are those who only understand that they had a shot when said shot is well past them. Then there's Scott Sigmon. Better known as "Cujo" in these parts, the best boxer to ever come from this area seemed to get his one chance when he went toe-to-toe with former World Champion Kelly Pavlik in Las Vegas. That June, 2012, bout had Pavlik winning a technical knockout in the seventh round.
