Bridgewater is a small town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our town is home to Bridgewater College, varied industries and stores, and comfortable residential neighborhoods. bridgewaterva.com is a community website with an open discussion board, just below, called “Bridgewater Buzz.”
In the passing of Roscoe Burgess, our town has lost a true friend. He loved and served his community well. Roscoe was a member of North River Baptist Church, where he was a deacon and choir member. He served on the Bridgewater Town Council for 20 years and was active in the local food pantry and a variety of other ministries and community services. He will be missed. Here is a link to his obituary.
From your webmaster: Bridgewater College has begun work on the much-anticipated upgrade of Jopson Field, to include lights and artificial turf. Here’s a link to a webcam to follow the construction live.
I’ve heard a lot of discussion about the Tilted Kilt, the new restaurant in Harrisonburg that features waitresses in skimpy outfits. Much of the discussion reflects a basic misunderstanding of liberty. You may not like the restaurant’s concept, but they’re free to operate within the constraints of law — and no one is suggesting that those outfits are illegal. Equally well, you may not like the restaurant’s critics calling on the community not to go there. The point is that all of those speaking for and against the restaurant are engaged in constitutionally protected speech. It’s not polite to tell your opponents to shut up, but even that is constitutionally protected speech. So, have at it — I have confidence that the right outcome will happen in the end.
It’s bad when a desperate criminal is on the loose in a residential neighborhood. It will be still worse if anti-gun forces succeed in disarming you and your friends and neighbors. (See http://americamagazine.org/issue/repeal-second-amendment)
I was sorry to learn of the closing of Wild Woods Barbecue, as reported on social media sites. Does anyone have any particulars?
I see that Anita’s bakery is having a grand RE-opening. When did it close?
The new chiropractor has signs saying open for business but every time I drive by there’s a small sign on the door that says “closed”.
Wonder what’s going on?
Those guys are good! Apparently this winter’s lack of practice didn’t take them off their game. Clear streets all around our neighborhood.
this is a joke. did you hear that tv 3 had to cancel its 11 o clock newscast. the on air talent could not get parental permission to stay out that late.
I read in the newspaper that Argo won best picture of the year. I watched it and if it’s the best, then it must have been a slow movie year. Fails greatly in comparison to real great movies like Field of Dreams, Ghost, Shawshank Redemption,The Green Mile, Outlaw Josey Wales and arguable the best movie ever………Cool Hand Luke. Even the really old African Queen was better.
i notice there is a new chiropractic office set to open feb. 28 in the building at the southeast corner of college and main. former home of rust engineering edward jones etc. best wishes for the new practice.
