Today's Opinions

  • We let them get away with it

        Last week I mentioned my concern that President Barack Obama’s executive overreach, aided and abetted by the “Democratic” Party, poses a threat to our republic. The Man Who Would Be King, and his political party, aren’t the only problem. The folks in Congress who have been bought and paid for by some special interest are also a serious problem.

    Bedford Museum Question

        I have a concern about the relationship that Annie Pollard has with the museum and her position as a Supervisor. From what I see, Ms. Pollard pretty much runs everything day to day at that Museum and sets on the Board for the nonprofit that operates the Museum. She has been doing this for several years and I believe the City, well now the Town and County of Bedford support the Museum as a Charity. I personally like the Museum, good to have something to pull the people off of Route 460 into Town.

  • Working with Israel to prevent a nuclear Iran

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Last Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint meeting of Congress.  It was a great honor to have Prime Minister Netanyahu come to the United States and speak to both Houses of Congress.

     

  • Standing with Israel

    The United States and Israel share a strong bond. Since Israel declared its independence in 1948, the U.S. has developed a positive relationship with Israel based on shared democratic values and common security interests. Israel has proven to be a valuable American ally since.

  • BOS wrapping up the budget

    By Steve Wilkerson
    Bedford County District 3 Supervisor

        Greetings to all, and a happy upcoming spring.

  • Sorry, Bibi; no war with Iran

        Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brought his case against Iran, and its apparent plans for a nuclear weapon, to the Congress last week, in a speech sponsored by America’s new foreign policy chief, John Boehner.
        Actually, Boehner, the Speaker of the House, has no authority whatsoever in foreign policy, but he acted like it when he invited “Bibi,” as he is known, without informing the White House in any way.

  • The form of a republic without the substance

        As regular readers of this column know, I always put democrat and democratic in quotes when I’m referring to a particular political party. That’s because I’m convinced the modern “Democratic” Party is anything but democratic. This party has become dominated by its extreme left wing and has increasingly authoritarian leanings.

  • Take time to thank a farmer!

        Agriculture is vital to Bedford County.
        The county boasts some 200,000 acres of farmland and 1,400 farms, with more than $23.6 million in annual farm sales. More than 40 percent of all of Bedford County’s land is used for farming.
        And there are almost 3,000 agriculturally-based jobs in the county.
