    The sky’s not falling

        The editorial of John Barnhart in the 08 July 2015 Bedford Bulletin missed the mark on several key points.   Mr. Barnhart apparently believes he knows absolute truth.  Yet he makes erroneous historical comparisons and is unable to distinguish Supreme Court cases.

    My perspective on the sheriff

        As a retired DC cop, living at the lake, I would like to comment on some comments I read in your paper last week.
         I am a fairly new resident to the county but my wife’s family has lived here for approximately 20 years. My remarks are in reference to, and support of, another ‘alumni’ of the Metro Police Department, Sheriff Brown.

    Same sex marriage

        The Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage will be discussed for years to come. That pronouncement will not alter deeply held religious beliefs grounded in a biblical worldview. It determines how authentic biblical Christians perceive life and provides the best explanation for life.

    Bashing
    conservatives

        In his June 3 article Mr. Howell must have reached the level of all those Liberals and other  Democrats he so dearly loves. His column seems to have deteriorated in nothing   more than a “bash all Republicans/Conservatives” swill chart.

    Thanks for help

        The Bedford International Alliance thanks those who helped with the Bedford Boys Cemetery Ceremony on Memorial Day.
        The flowers were donated by Frederic’s Flowers and Rapid Printing. We thank American Legion Post 54, the Rev. Jack Davis, Mrs. Lisa Butler and the members of the BIA who participated in the ceremony

    Problems with article
     
        I have a new bone to pick with John Barnhart regarding his article about Appalachian Vapors.

    Innocence lost

        This week a “little bit of innocence” was lost from Bedford.
        As the nice, quiet evening progressed something was taken from Bedford. Yes, it was only two Rocking Chairs that disappeared from the Welcome Center but it was a whole lot of trust and pride that was the largest loss.

    Inaccuracies in argument

        So now Mr. Donald M. Campbell wants to join the tit for tat and I find myself defending the Museum again against inaccuracies.
        The Museum is not a charity, it is a non-profit corporation that employees 5 tax-paying Bedford County residents and also provides employment for a large number of retired volunteers. I wish our funding was automatic, it is not.

    Time for a Change

        Citizens of Bedford, we finally have the opportunity to change the direction of the county on June 9.
        After 50 years of having no voice in the funding of the school system residents of the Town of Bedford, along with those in the county, can vote for members of the Board of Supervisors. Democrats, Independents, and Republicans in districts 5, 6 and 7 - you can all vote in this Republican Primary. It is vital to do so.

    The town we need

        We apparently now have an increase in our Town real estate taxes for the coming fiscal year.    The Town may need this increase, but how can we keep increasing taxes and at the same time cutting needed access to our Landfill and other services. The cuts started some years ago by cutting the hours of operation.
