  • Give thanks for our nation’s blessings

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

     

  • Fixing a badly broken ethanol policy

  • Support growing for military spending cuts

    Lost in the hubbub of the presidential campaign was a brilliant op-ed in the New York Times that made a very convincing argument for finally reducing excessive military spending.
        There’s a specific type of American, a product of our militaristic culture, that supports any and every war no matter what, always believes that America is morally correct in an automatic way once we start dropping bombs or landing troops somewhere.

  • Weak candidates were key to losses


        Since Election Day, a number of people have been looking for explanations about why Republicans failed to evict Barack Obama from the White House.
        One explanation is that the Republicans’ efforts to rally their base and get them to the polls wasn’t as effective as the “Democrats’” efforts. This explanation appears to have some merit because there are some statistics to back it and, in such a close election, whose base turns out in force can be the deciding factor.

  • Don’t forget to shop local

    lot of folks set out this past week to begin marking off items from their Christmas lists.
        That’s good. It’s encouraging to see folks out and about and spending money.
        Just remember as you work your way through those Christmas lists to shop locally as you finish buying those packages for your family and friends this season.
         We owe it to our local merchants to show our support. Those businesses support us all year long.

    Appreciate response

        We are writing again to thank linesmen and crews from City of Bedford Electric for their prompt response to outages during recent storms.
        Over the years and through difficult circumstance they have always exhibited courage, skill and dedication to their customers. We are lucky to have such fine people working on our behalf.
        Thanks again for continued excellence. Keep up the good work.

    Top story?

        I’m baffled.
        On page one of the November 14 Bedford Bulletin, in the apparent top story of the week, Staff Writer John Barnhart reports on changes to the school board and the city council—interesting news.
         But in the same edition, buried on page six, the ubiquitous staff writer plainly informs us the sky is falling. 
        Isn’t that a bigger story? Doesn’t it deserve front-page coverage?

  • Demanding answers on the Benghazi attack

    It has now been two months since a group of hostile Islamic radicals attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, including two Navy SEALS. Unfortunately, today we know little more about the events leading up to that attack then we did two months ago.
