Today's Opinions

  • Republicans are the least of his problems

        Senate Republicans are the least of President Barack Obama’s problems as he seeks to negotiate what looks like a bad nuclear deal with Iran. A couple of weeks ago his own party demonstrated that they don’t trust him when “Democrats” joined Republicans to pass a bill, on a 98-1 vote, that will allow Congress to weigh in on any deal President Obama negotiates.

  • W.’s brother faces a rough campaign

        The brother of the swaggering little Texan – a term I proudly coined for our last and most hapless president – has yet to announce for his sibling’s old job, but it’s clear he’s running for it.
        We know a lot about Jeb Bush. He was governor of Florida, where he helped his brother “win” that state in the 2000 election, under very dubious circumstances.

  • Attend public hearing on rezoning

    Bedford

        This is my very first letter to the editor. I have lived in this lovely, safe, convenient Town of Bedford Virginia for 48 years, and up to now, “everything seemed to be pretty much in order.”    I cannot think of a better place in which to have lived with my husband Dave and our five children, David, Lee, Mark, Mary and Paul.  Moving to Bedford gave us a wonderful life.

  • Honoring our law enforcement officers

  • Spring swings into gear

        If you can’t find something to do in the Bedford area this weekend, you just aren’t looking.
        There is a lot to do!

  • Even his own party doesn’t trust him

        A bill that the Senate passed last week ought to provide a good dose of reality for liberal wing-nuts. They like to accuse critics of President Obama’s negotiations with Iran as being warmongers. But, look at who is among those critics.

  • Candidates riding in on donkeys

        The 2016 Republican presidential field now includes religious right candidates, for whom running for president is like riding their donkeys into Jerusalem.
        A significant part of the party base (perhaps as much as 25 percent) is still said to be “evangelical Christians.”

  • Elected officials can’t ‘play ostrich’

    Bedford County School Board
    District 6

        I would like to share a few thoughts of my last four years on the School Board as everyone prepares to vote on June 9.
        Kevin Willis and I joined the fight in Bedford County before we were ever elected to the board. Attending countless meetings, researching information becoming educated on the topics at hand.
