  • Rand reflects on Sept. 11

    There are only a handful of days in which a whole country collectively remembers what it was doing.  Some have been high points in our history, like V-E and V-J Day at the end of World War II and Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.  And some have been moments we wish had never occurred, like Pearl Harbor, President Kennedy’s assassination, and the tragedies of September 11, 2001.

    Other than that I had free reign — and I love to reign.

     W.R. Abbott, Bedford postmaster, presented Coleman Sibley and Glenn Allen Fisher pins representing at least 25 years of service for the Federal government not only as postal service but military service and other federal civilian service.

  • A decade later a time to remember and continue the fight

    The acts of terror perpetrated on the United States a decade ago (has it really been 10 years?) were an unconscionable effort by people who hate our way of life to bring America to her knees. But the way America went to her knees was not quite in the manner the merchants of evil had envisioned.
