Today's Opinions

  • An appalling world view

      
        Rick Howell certainly did an outstanding job, in last week’s The Liberal Agenda, of proving my contention that liberals loath our armed forces.
        Apparently, in Liberal World, American soldiers don’t have legal rights. Mr. Howell is quite perturbed that Staff Sergeant Robert Bales’ trial on multiple murder charges is going to take a long time.
        “We’re just not in a rush to convict American soldiers of much of anything, are we?” Mr. Howell wrote.

  • Growing the economy by cutting spending

  • Veterans can prevent overpayment

        In the past year, a number of veterans or widows residing in the area served by this newspaper and receiving VA pensions were notified their benefits were to be stopped until an over payment they received had been paid.

  • Volunteers receive training

    By Marci L. Stone, MBA, EFO
    Deputy Chief
    Bedford County Department of Fire & Rescue

        On Saturday March 24, 2012, Bedford County Department of Fire & Rescue hosted a Leadership Roundtable at the Bedford Columns. 

  • Yes, a U.S. atrocity, like it or not

    Since the massacre of 17 Afghan civilians, Army sergeant Robert Bales has now “lawyered up” and said he doesn’t remember anything. How convenient.
        News reports have indicated that his trial on those charges will likely take a long time. We’re just not in a rush to convict American soldiers of much of anything, are we?

  • Be careful when you cut


        It appears that there is a push from both extremes of the political spectrum to cut the defense budget.
