  • Roast Turkey?

        An item that circulated on Facebook shortly before Thanksgiving shows a photo of President Barack Obama talking on a phone with text reading “What will you have for Thanksgiving dinner?” Below that is a photo of Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, also talking on a phone with text that reads “Turkey.”

  • National security is our greatest responsibility

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Last Friday, the nation of France – America’s first and enduring ally – suffered a devastating attack, and our hearts and prayers remain with her people in this time of mourning. We stand with them, resolute against these forces of evil that seek to destroy peace and prosperity in America and across the globe.

     

  • Drug disposal for a safer Bedford County

  • Trump’s supporters should be ashamed

        There have been two separate stories lately in the New York Times and the Boston Globe about the “near panic” that’s said to be gripping the national GOP over Donald Trump.
        Party leaders – the establishment, if you will – are very worried about the possibility that Trump could actually be the nominee. They know that would be political suicide, handing the Democrats the White House again without even a serious fight.

  • Bolsheviks

        I often refer to the left wing of the “Democratic” Party as its Bolshevik wing and Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda in last week’s Bedford Bulletin gave a good illustration as to why I do that.

I always urge people to read it and then consider whether they really want to vote for the candidates who these folks like.

  • Why we’re thankful

    By James F. Burns

        An Ohio farm girl’s 1895 ride over a mountain is a metaphor for why we’re thankful for being Americans.  In a letter back home to her parents, Mary tells the story of her trip—from ”trial and tribulation” to triumph—tracing out our nation’s own exceptional journey.
        Mary was traveling to Virginia to take up a new job as an art teacher.  Her train arrived at Cumberland Gap at 5 a.m., only to find the tunnel through the mountain had caved in.

  • The bloody results of religious fanaticism

        In the wake of the latest terrorist attacks, word came before press time about the death of the instigator of the events in Paris. One can’t help but wonder. Did death bring him what he expected?
        He had committed himself to a violent path of extremism in the name of Islam, but violated the real teachings of that religion by killing a lot of innocent people. He met his own death before the age of 30.
