Today's Opinions

  • Centerfest Corner

        As each week passes we are that much closer to the 33rd annual Centerfest! This year’s festival will take place Saturday, Sept. 27 and will encompass almost the entirety of the downtown Bedford area.

  • What have conservative Republicans done?

        Who, exactly, is not working with whom?
        During these fierce ideological battles that have so long divided Washington, people really ought to ask themselves a fundamental question.
        What have conservative Republicans ever really done for anybody? Can anyone tell me?
        I’m not talking about starting wars or supporting policies that protect them and their wealth, such as tax cuts for the rich, which have proven to be disastrous.

  • Leading the way — to destruction

  • The broiling politics of summer

    Summer is to be endured.
        I know most people have very romantic notions about it. It’s supposed to be this pristine time of beautiful, clear weather, vacations to the beach, etc., etc.
        Kids, of course, don’t have to go to school, so that makes it magical for them (pretty magical for teachers, too, I’d say). But for some of us, there’s nothing but bugs, flies, storms, and vicious heat to escape.

        It has been an interesting session in Richmond with respect to boating legislation.

  • Centerfest Corner

    By Amanda Adams
    Bedford Main Street Executive director

        Would you believe it’s been 33 years since Bedford hosted its first Centerfest? Thirty-three years and this amazing festival is still the Bedford event of the year that draws thousands of people into Centertown!

  • Un) intended consequences

    He’s at it again.
        As if the current crisis wasn’t enough, President Obama is going for more.
        When the President penned the “Dream Act” by executive fiat, the consequences went far beyond what the action was intended.
        By using the executive order to suspend deportations of illegal immigrants who came here as children, word went out throughout Mexico and Central America that it was open house for children to illegally enter the United States.

  • Our national death wish

        After 51 percent of us fell for Barack Obaloney’s hot air for the second time, and reelected him in 2012, I felt that we had committed national suicide. I’m even more convinced of that now that we are halfway through the second year of his second term.
