    What about
    Otter River?

        As the Bedford County School Board moves to make cuts in it's budget, again   more schools are facing the real probability of closing next year.  This time it will either be Thaxton Elementary or Bedford Primary that will be axed by the board.

    ‘The lessons of Ferguson, Missouri’

        I have been doing so well.
        I read the “Liberal Agenda”, take a deep breath, put the paper down, and go about my life without responding to it. But I can only take so many lies.

    Lift restrictions

        Since the Franklin County Board of Supervisors are the elected representatives for the Franklin County Districts, we feel it most important to bring a significant problem to their attention. Many of us, after enjoying many years on our 22,000-acre Resort Lake, find ourselves unable to sell our homes.

    Committed to recycling

        I noted in your August 6, 2014, edition a letter to the editor from Ellen Mackey concerning the action of the Town Council to discontinue curbside recycling.  Mrs. Mackey in her letter mentioned a July 24, 2014, meeting of Council at which many pro recycling citizens expressed their disappointment in the discontinuance of curbside recycling.

    25th Anniversary Extravaganza

        On behalf of the Board and Staff of The Sedalia Center, I write to share our deep appreciation of your coverage of the Center’s annual fundraiser, our 25th Anniversary Extravaganza held August 2. 
        In times when many private non-profit organizations have struggled to make ends meet, it is both humbling and a source of pride that we have been able to bring the art of living and the living arts to everyone in our region for a quarter century.

    Promoting
    recycling

        As of July 1, 2014, the Town of Bedford discontinued curbside recycling. 
        Many residents were discouraged and confused as to why this program ended. At the July 24 Council meeting, many pro- recycling citizens expressed their disappointment in the discontinuation of curbside recycling in Bedford. . Thanks to all who showed up and expressed concern for this important service.

    Doing nothing has
    consequences    

        The Bedford Bulletins editorial of July 2 on immigration reform stated,”in fact, the only reason Congress won’t take action on immigration reform now is because of the flood of illegal immigrants coming across the border right now-most of them children...the leadership was ready to act.”

    Clearing up the
    confusion

        Thank you for supporting Bower Center for the Arts and the Wharton Society by attending Dr. Bower’s Annual Crawfish Boil. As always, the food, music and ambiance were outstanding. Unfortunately, there was some confusion and misunderstanding at this year’s Crawfish Boil, which we want to clear up.

    The future of
    agriculture

        I write this out of deep concern for Bedford County’s agricultural future.
        Our family owns a 594 acre farm in the Big Island area; this land has been in our family and farmed for more than 150 years. We love Bedford County, its beauty and its rich history. Zoning regulations should not be changed in order to allow these industrial farming operations to move into the county.
