  • Biosolids editorial fails to tell both sides

    While last week’s editorial on biosolids allowed that there are “two sides to this story,” the writer then proceeded to tell only one side—the one opposed to the recycling of biosolids as a fertilizer and soil amendment for farms and forestlands.

    The editorial cited only sections of a recent Associated Press story to raise alarm about the land application of biosolids, while ignoring other sections, other court decisions and years of scientific research and experience that demonstrate the safety and benefits of biosolids recycling.

  • Letters

    Work with system

    I would like to respond to the article written by Pattie Davidson in the Bedford Bulletin in which she stated Big Island responded to an emergency call in the Bedford area and that we need a more modern paid first responder system. Personally, I don't think anyone would argue with her statement. Until that time comes we need to work with the system we now have in place.

  • Overdue immigration reform

    Bedford Dept. of Corrections and Social Services

    This letter will never be able to convey how thankful I am as a family member for the understanding guidance that your local Dept. of Corrections and Social Services provided to my son.

    Problems with alcohol were nothing new to my son's lifestyle. For years this addiction had taken a toll on him in many ways, loss of family, friends and self worth.

  • A fiscally irresponsible budget

    Just last week the House Majority unveiled their proposed budget resolution for fiscal year 2009, which calls for the largest tax increase in American history: $683 billion over the next 5 years. This proposal significantly increases the tax burden on the middle class to pay for new wasteful government spending. Facing a slowing economy and an increased cost of living, Americans have to tighten their belts and carefully budget their hard-earned money. It?s time the Federal government did the same.

    The health care of America’s veterans is one of the important issues we must address.
