    Driven to
    distraction

        Just as sure as the sun rises in the east, two or three times a year Billy Hackworth writes to the Bedford Bulletin complaining about Sheriff Mike Brown. Why is that? He may have some good points, but they are obscured by his obsession with and vendetta for Sheriff Brown.

    National Dog Bite Prevention Week

        In April, the United States Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week.
        I am writing to ask our customers to extend their efforts and help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”
        Pet owners’ efforts are critical when you consider the number of Postal Service employees attacked by dogs last year reached 6,755 - more than 200 higher than the year before.

    Supports  Johannessen

        We are most fortunate to have several highly qualified candidates running for positions on Bedford’s Town Council this November.
        The two incumbents, Tim Black and Stacy Hailey, have both proven themselves to be dedicated to our community through their participation in assorted committees and organizations, such as Bedford Main Street, the Farmers Market, etc.; their regular appearances at community-wide events; and their active participation in Council meetings and functions.

    Businesses help make program
    a success

        On behalf of Bedford County Public Schools I’m writing to express gratitude to area businesses that helped make this year’s Teacher of the Year program a success. This program rewards our top educators each year and would be impossible without the support we’re provided from business owners throughout the community.

    Is sheriff a
    relative?

        I have not renewed my Bulletin subscription for several reasons.
        I was born in Bedford in 1932 and apparently have outlived most of my friends and family to the point I do not recognize names in The Bulletin anymore.
