    What’s wrong


        This is to address the letter by Bill Isaac, published in last week’s Bulletin.
        His second sentence of the third paragraph states: “I didn`t vote for Sheriff Brown simply because he has the R beside his name and I`m a transplant from Detroit and a union worker for the past 25 years.”  I submit that he is a prime example of what`s wrong with this country today.

    Steamroller

    politics

        Congratulations to all of our elect Bedford County Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Mike Brown. Although I do not live in District One I did help campaign for Bill Thomasson, as well as for Sheriff Mike Brown.

    The search for Robbie Wood


        On Tuesday Oct 26 as I was studying for the Air Force Association’s Cyberpatriot competition, I got a phone call. It was from an officer at my local Civil Air Patrol squadron, of which I am the Cadet Commander, calling to see if I could get a search team together for a missing person search. With the help of the other cadets with me, I activated the phone tree and was able to get a search team together in less than an hour.

    Good intentions, unintended

    consequences

        The purpose of this letter is to inform Bedford County citizens that the Board of Supervisors are proposing changes to the Zoning Ordinance that have numerous  unintended consequences that could adversely impact citizens while changing the appearance of much of the County.

    Saddened by news


        As a supporter of law enforcement, and as a public school teacher, I was saddened to hear of the deputy in Bedford being arrested this week for sexual activity with a minor.
        I live in Bedford County and am a fan of Sheriff Brown for many reasons, mainly because of his department’s battle against sexual predators. That being said, I did want to assure myself that the department does everything possible to weed people like Mr. Grubbs out in the initial hiring process.

    Getting the facts


        Ward Armstrong has made a lot of statements recently in the political campaign about Applachian Electric and his opponent, Charles Poindexter.

    Is death an advertisement opportunity?

     
        Is anyone else offended by the funeral home logos that now appear in the obituaries? 
        I think that it is very sad when something that is supposed to honor our deceased is either turned into a revenue opportunity by the paper or a marketing opportunity by the funeral homes or both.  Granted, if one funeral home does it, the others will have to follow.  But, really?

    Do your

    homework
    and vote

        Please remember as we go into the elections, the School system gets the biggest chunk of your
    tax dollars, whether you have children or not.
        It is time to get educated about who has the best ideas about how that money should be allocated. All the Board of Supervisors can do is decide how much. Once it’s on South Bridge, we need competent fiscal management—vote according to those who have the taxpayers and children of Bedford County in mind.

    Why reversion?


        As a Bedford County resident and business owner, I appreciate the recent article, “Common questions about reversion.” (9/21/11)
        The article was somewhat informative, but I am still confused as to exactly why the decision is being made for Bedford City to revert back to a town. It would be great to read a story that would state, in layman terms, what the positive and negative aspects of this merger between city and county would be.

    BCM addresses local need


        The fact that over 3,300 children in Bedford City and County are at risk of hunger came as no surprise.  The figure was cited in a recent article that focused on The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank’s recent survey.
