Today's Opinions

  • County should adopt TNR

    By Diane Novak
    Founder & Past President
    Barn Cat Buddies, Inc.

        Thank you for the wonderful article on feral cats last week. 
        Trap Neuter Return or T.N.R has been the subject of many heated discussions in the last several years. To understand the subject more clearly we need to understand how the feral cat phenomenon began.

  • Working organized labor’s political program

        Thus ends another political campaign, and we can only hope that the real winners were Virginia’s working families and the deserving poor who so need Medicaid expansion.
        For my part, it was a pleasure to again work with the Virginia AFL-CIO’s political campaign program, designated by year, of course, as “Labor 2015.”

  • A more muscular foreign policy?

        Recent news stories are making me wonder if President Barack Obama is finally starting to use some sense when it comes to foreign policy. I’ve entertained that thought before only to realize that I was wrong.
        This president’s foreign policy has ranged from incoherent to incompetent.

  • For your sake, watch out for the deer

        Bedford area residents know all too well the tragedy that can come from hitting a deer with a vehicle.
        Last year, county residents were involved in 128 deer-related accidents, among the leaders throughout the commonwealth.
        The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) notes that November is the most dangerous month for deer-related crashes in Virginia and is urging motorists to buckle up, slow down and be observant.

    Endorses Dooley

        Having known Andy Dooley for over 25 years and working with him as a Commissioner, Bedford County Department of Parks and Recreation, I feel he is the most qualified candidate for District 6 Supervisor. Please vote for Andy Dooley November 3, 2015.

  • Partisan committee harangues Hillary Clinton

        In 1983, President Ronald Reagan and the rest of the country was stunned by the terrorist bomb that killed 300 U.S. Marines in Beirut, Lebanon.
        Although Republicans had long preached about not withdrawing from foreign entanglements – calling it “cut and run” – that’s precisely what Reagan did next. He pulled all U.S. troops out.

  • Barack the Magnificent can do no wrong

            Last week I read about naval exercises our Navy conducted with India and Japan in the Bay of Bengal.  This was a good idea. Both Japan an India have substantial, modern navies. They are much smaller than ours, and neither of them have anything that matches our Nimitz class aircraft carriers. However, they are competent navies and Japan, in particular has a long navy tradition.

  • Vote on Tuesday

        With all the letters flooding into our office, it’s no secret people have opinions on this year’s races.
        Just remember, your vote counts too.
        It’s important all town and county citizens who are registered to vote exercise their privilege to vote.
        The 2015 General Election will be held this Tuesday, Nov. 3, and there are some important races to be decided. . Voting polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
