  • The little things

        Cards, candy and flowers will be sent or handed to loved ones across this country next Tuesday, February 14, as gestures of love, adoration and consideration.
    The tradition of Valentine’s Day is celebrated in some form on nearly every continent, but is this really necessary?

  • Muslim ban an outrageous immorality

        The disaster promised by The Great Stupidity of 2016 is now in full form, and decent Americans everywhere are disgusted and outraged by the extreme actions of our illegitimate and accidental president.
        The notion of Donald Trump in the Oval Office was always a nightmare, and now that bad dream has arms and legs. The ban on Muslims from seven countries – only the ones where Trump doesn’t have business interests – is immoral and unconstitutional.

  • Rally around the Trump

        I wonder if Rick Howell, of Liberal Agenda fame, ever reads The Economist? If he doesn’t, then he really should try to get a copy of last week’s edition and read the magazine’s Lexington column. The column provides an excellent description of why “Democrats’” current approach to opposing President Donald Trump is going to fail.

  • Sheriff’s Corner

    By Sheriff Mike Brown

        Bedford County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Mike Brown want everyone to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday whether you’re throwing a party or attending one.
        The most important part of your game plan for the big game: a shutdown defense that prevents drunk driving.  Drunk driving kills. It takes a life every 51 minutes in America.

  • The start of something new

        Here I am, the new intern at the Bedford Bulletin,  Emily Scruggs.
        For this first column, I’d like to simply introduce myself. I grew up just north of Bedford in Botetourt County and graduated from James River High School what seems like an eternity ago.

  • Short session reviews biennial budget

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        We have now completed the third week of the seven-week session of the 2017 Virginia General Assembly.  There is much work to be done between now and February 25, when the session is adjourned.

  • Everything cost somebody something

    By Delegate Scott Garett

        I joined you in watching the 45th President of the United States take the oath of office this week. Nowhere in the world does the transition of power happen so peacefully and beautifully. Please join me and Whitney in praying for our nation and our new leaders in the days ahead.

  • Budget is General Assembly’s responsibility

    By Senator Steve Newman

        This has been a very busy week in Richmond.   We’ve been setting some unusual and surprising records this session.  The number of visitors to the General Assembly Building, where all our offices are located and where most of the committee hearings are held, has reached numbers not seen in nearly 30 years.

  • General Assembly saw record number of visitors

    By Delegate Kathy Byron

        The second full week of the 2017 General Assembly session was busy, with bills and resolutions being considered by committees at a quick pace.  And, we broke some records for the number of visitors to Capitol Square, too.

  • History will vindicate Barack Obama

         Now that he’s out of office, attention turns away from our 44th president to this new creature installed by angry white people, Russian election tampering, and the ridiculous, much in need of abolishment, Electoral College.
        It won’t take long for Americans to notice the difference in the transition from a good and decent man, highly intelligent and articulate, to this billionaire rabble-rouser with botched language skills and a teen-aged Twitter obsession.
