  • Pandering to the Children of the Corn

         Hillary Clinton is still struggling to get former Bernie Sanders supporters excited about her candidacy. The feeling these folks have toward Clinton seems to be much like the feeling the Republican base had toward Mitt Romney back in 2012. They didn’t like him and didn’t trust him. While they weren’t about to vote for Barack Obama, a lot may have simply not voted.

  • Stop insurance company bailouts and help the American people

  • Our national security tactics must not undermine our safety

  • Justice for victims of terror

    September 11, 2001, is a day America will not forget. You probably know exactly where you were and what you were doing when tragedy struck at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in a field in western Pennsylvania. But even though 15 years have passed, for the families of those killed or injured on September 11th the memory of that day is all the more real.

     

  • Feral Cat Day and TNR

    By Karin Sherbin

        October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, and locally Bedford Cares will mark the day by organizing volunteers to conduct Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) around the town and county to sterilize feral cats and vaccinate them against rabies.
        TNR is a decades-old method of humanely managing feral cat colonies via sterilization. People care for the colonies until they die out.

  • Women shouldn’t be supporting Trump

        In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s clear and decisive victory over her shameful opponent last week, Donald Trump just couldn’t get over his obsession with the former Miss Universe title holder whom he had so insulted.
        Clinton was right to bring it up, because it’s one of the many examples of the contempt that this mean-spirited man holds for women. Unless a woman is suitable for a beauty pageant or a Playboy centerfold, she means nothing to Donald Trump.

  • No time for finger pointing

        Last week, Gary Hostutler, chairman of the school board, came before Bedford Town Council to talk about Liberty Lake Park again, and its use for the Liberty High School baseball team should it be needed.
        Hostutler spoke at a work session that preceded the regular meeting. This time, he’s looking at the ball field there as a Plan B in case the preferred plan—phasing the gym and middle school construction so that the Liberty High School baseball team won’t become a refugee and can use its own field.

  • Cash ransom payments to Iran endanger Americans

    You’ve heard the old phrase: if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. In this case, the Obama Administration secretly paid $400 million in cash to Iran on the same day Iran released several American hostages. I don’t know about you, but that looks an awful lot like a ransom payment to me.

     

  • Before we go Pink, let’s go Gold

        I think at this point we all know that October is breast cancer awareness month.  
        For a few weeks the world wears pink ribbons, the White House changes to pink, and the NFL covers their players in pink shoes and gloves.  Because of this amazing awareness campaign over the past 30 years the survival rates for this disease have increased dramatically.
