  • 2016? Legislative elections come first

        Perhaps, in the “Summer of Donald Trump,” people can be forgiven if they think presidential politics is the only thing happening now. But they would be mistaken.
        This fall, Virginians will vote on all 140 seats in the General Assembly. The winners of the 40 seats in the Senate, and the 100 seats in the House, will make laws that affect us before the next president is sworn into office.

  • House takes first step to end dangerous sanctuary city policies
  • Sanctuary cities violate the law and endanger public safety 

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Immigrants who have come to America over the last two centuries refresh, enrich, and restore the promise of American liberty.  The ‎many immigrants who have traversed the path to becoming American citizens – oftentimes through much hardship – have made this country great.  Indeed, we are a nation of immigrants.

    Jesus
    was a
    carpenter

        The retired D. C. cop who tried to respond to my recent letter starts by praising Sheriff Brown for the great job he’s doing and that both of them had worked for the D. C. Police Dept. I wonder if this is why D. C. has such a violent crime record.
        I’m convinced he and Sheriff Brown have a lot in common--neither know how to tell the truth.

    The sky’s not falling

        The editorial of John Barnhart in the 08 July 2015 Bedford Bulletin missed the mark on several key points.   Mr. Barnhart apparently believes he knows absolute truth.  Yet he makes erroneous historical comparisons and is unable to distinguish Supreme Court cases.

    My perspective on the sheriff

        As a retired DC cop, living at the lake, I would like to comment on some comments I read in your paper last week.
         I am a fairly new resident to the county but my wife’s family has lived here for approximately 20 years. My remarks are in reference to, and support of, another ‘alumni’ of the Metro Police Department, Sheriff Brown.

    Same sex marriage

        The Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage will be discussed for years to come. That pronouncement will not alter deeply held religious beliefs grounded in a biblical worldview. It determines how authentic biblical Christians perceive life and provides the best explanation for life.

    Bashing
    conservatives

        In his June 3 article Mr. Howell must have reached the level of all those Liberals and other  Democrats he so dearly loves. His column seems to have deteriorated in nothing   more than a “bash all Republicans/Conservatives” swill chart.
