    Let the new board make the choice

        The lame duck coalition of County Supervisors--namely Arrington, Parker  and Pollard, along with incumbent Sharp-- seem to be intent on naming a new County Administrator before leaving office in January. Wouldn’t you think the professional and courteous thing to do would be to hand off that decision to the new Board?

    What’s the rush?

    Masking the inhumane industry

        Shipping and other associated costs which can be reimbursed: Was this the discussion around the table at your local business?  It could have been, however “they” are not shipping paper or food products, they are shipping human beings!

    The issue of
    our time

        After reading Mr. Howell’s “Liberal Agenda” on June 29, I have to question his definition of morality.
        He supports a candidate who views Medicaid as “a moral imperative” and as the “issue of our time” but slams his opponent because she is against abortion. 55 million. That is the conservative number for the number of legal abortions since Roe v. Wade. But Medicaid is the “issue of our time” in the mind of someone like Mr. Howell.

    Jesus
    was a
    carpenter

        The retired D. C. cop who tried to respond to my recent letter starts by praising Sheriff Brown for the great job he’s doing and that both of them had worked for the D. C. Police Dept. I wonder if this is why D. C. has such a violent crime record.
        I’m convinced he and Sheriff Brown have a lot in common--neither know how to tell the truth.

    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.
