  • Honoring our veterans

    This week we celebrate Veterans Day to honor the brave men and women who have nobly served our country. For those who have served, we thank you for protecting our freedoms and for those continuing to serve all over the world and here at home, we appreciate your service and dedication to defending and protecting our nation. As journalist Elmer Davis once said, “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”

     

  • President Obama re-elected and vindicated

    Election 2012 is finally over. The American people have spoken, and I am quite confident that the correct choices for this country have been made.
        I am proud to be among those who cast our ballots for a good president who has survived vicious and mean-spirited assaults against him, a man whose religion and nationality has been subjected to the most scurrilous attacks, often by people who have acted only out of hatred and ignorance.

  • Fool me once, shame on you


        There is a saying: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Last week an incompetent, left-wing extremist managed to fool half of the American people for a second time gaining another four years in the White House — four more years to do his best to complete the destruction of the America that he hates.

  • Election 2012

    The election is over: If your candidate won, it’s time to celebrate; if your favorite lost, it’s not time to despair.
        That’s the great news about this country—there is always hope and there is always the opportunity to work for change.
        Local elections brought some of that change.

  • Helping our children learn about the Constitution

    On September 17, 1787, 39 delegates of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed their names to the United States Constitution.  In doing so, they laid the framework on which we have built our nation.

     

  • Medicare Part D Questions and Answers

    By Rev. Geoff Hubbard
    Chairman, Board of Directors
    Bedford Parish Nurse Ministry

        What is Medicare Part D? Medicare Part D is an addition to Medicare that helps seniors with the cost of their prescription drugs. Medicare Part A (hospitalization) and Medicare Part B (visits to the doctor) are both government run. However Medicare Part D is run by private insurance companies. Many companies offer different plans and it is up to each person to find the plan that offers the best coverage for their particular medical needs.

  • What the president and America must face

    This is one of those awkward moments when your heroic Bulletin columnists can’t write about the election’s conclusions because we don’t know it yet!
        Therefore, Id’ been thinking about issues that would have to be grappled with by either person who won the November 6 election.
        I’ve settled upon four matters I believe rank as the most important. Some of these weren’t even considered important issues in the election just concluded.

  • Now that it’s over...

    Hopefully, by the time you read this, a winner will have been named in this year’s presidential election.
        If not, Heaven help us. The last situation this nation needs is a closer look at more hanging chads. We’re in trouble if this nation has to relive the 2000 debacle again.
