Today's Opinions

  • Thankful to be a Minuteman

    By Foster Garrett

    Student Intern

        It’s an unwritten tradition in my family to name something you are truly grateful for before digging into the Thanksgiving spread, and it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint precisely one thing in my life that I have a deep appreciation for.

  • Education Sec. Betsy DeVos should resign

        Donald Trump’s Cabinet selections were easily the worst in American political history. He either chose people who, like him, were unqualified for their posts, or ideological extremists opposed to the very task their agencies are assigned.

  • Hypocrites!

        Since the news about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment lifestyle broke, not a day has gone by without news of new allegations against different men. Many (why is this not surprising?) have been against politicians.

  • Looking ahead

        It has been years since the town of Bedford has been looking at what could be done with the Old Yellow building that sits next to Bedford Middle School. Now with BMS set to be vacated at the end of this school year, the town has two buildings to deal with.

  • Letters 11/22/17

    ‘It’s Alabama isn’t it?’

        I write to take exception to Rick Howell’s article concerning Roy Moore of Alabama (Nov. 8, 2017). His comment, “it’s Alabama isn’t it?” paint all the people of that state with the same brush.
        How can a person treat all the people from any given area or state the same? Perhaps Mr. Howell has carried out his own opinion poll of Alabama. Who knew?

  • On being thankful

    By James F. Burns
    Retired professor
    University of Florida

        Some surviving family writings from the 1800s provide perspective on being thankful for a wide variety of things.  Thus we may be thankful:

    For natural beauty—Cumberland Gap, 1895  

  • Shame on ‘Christians’ supporting Roy Moore

        National Republicans are horrified that their party has to go to the polls in Alabama Dec. 12 with Roy Moore on the ballot in a U.S. Senate race.
        Perhaps by now he’s been removed or has stepped down. But the real subject here is the way “Christian conservatives” will support any moral wretch out there as long as he’s allegedly “God-fearing” and against the only two things that matter: abortion rights and gay marriage.

  • Filling Jim Vest’s shoes

        Early last month, I wrote about how much Town Council will miss Jim Vest. I also mentioned my hope that Council would choose somebody who could fill Jim’s shoes.
        I’m glad to say Council has done that. Their decision, last week, to appoint Bob Carson to fill the vacant seat was a wise one.
