Today's Opinions

  • Time for a cease fire

        It’s been over a year now since Dr. William McIntosh, the former director of the National D-Day Memorial, stirred up all sorts of anger and discontent by putting up a bust of Uncle Joe at the National D-Day Memorial. I’m not talking about Joe Biden, I’m talking about another bolshevik, Joe Stalin.

    Bedford County Family Farm Tour a successß

        Approximately 300 visitors came out for the 2011 Family Farm Tour held at Lil Docs Llamas and Alpacas in Huddleston on August 20. 

  • Back to school

  • Problems at Bedford Middle School

    By Patricia Robertson


        So much has been said about the possible closing of Bedford Primary and/or Body Camp Schools this year. I’d like to draw parents’ attention to what the school administrator’s “strategic plan” has done and wants to do to Bedford Middle School.

  • King’s vision included economic justice

        Hurricane Irene caused the official Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Dedication ceremony to be postponed to either September or October.

        Whenever it happens, American citizens will gather to remember the struggles and the achievements of our country’s greatest civil rights leader.

  • Could be a good year for Republicans

        2012 could be a good year for Republicans to take the White House.

  • Reversion appears to be coming soon

        “The study is underway.”

        That’s how a story in the Bulletin started some three -and-a-half years ago, noting that Bedford and Bedford County were well underway with talks about the city reverting to town status.
        Now, apparently, an agreement may be near. At least that’s word on the street.
        The public has been given little additional information in the 42 months since a possible reversion plan was first announced.
