    Battle provides for less fortunate


        The weeks leading into Christmas were so very busy and exciting for the 1st ever Battle of the Stockyards. Even though we only had a few short weeks to achieve our goals, all three of the stockyards did a wonderful job. Each stockyard was to raise 200 cans of food for RAM house and 200 toys for Toys for Tots. While each stockyard did not quite meet their individual goal, collectively we did a great job of helping these two organizations during their greater times of need.

        Thanks to Rick Howell
        
        Rick Howell you are a gem in this sea of far right conservatism and religious fundamentalism.  You keep a finger in the dike of truthfulness while all around you Republican (R) falsehoods abound.

    Forgiveness: A great gift


        After leaving Vista Foods onto Washington Street, going west, I was stopped at the stoplight.
        As I wanted to turn right on Bridge Street, I knew a moment of contemplation was ahead for me (no right turn without a green light). I gazed at Bedford Hardware and saw something that sort of took me by surprise. The sign/banner simply said, “Christmas, a time for forgiveness.”

    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.

        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.
