  • Women shouldn’t be supporting Trump

        In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s clear and decisive victory over her shameful opponent last week, Donald Trump just couldn’t get over his obsession with the former Miss Universe title holder whom he had so insulted.
        Clinton was right to bring it up, because it’s one of the many examples of the contempt that this mean-spirited man holds for women. Unless a woman is suitable for a beauty pageant or a Playboy centerfold, she means nothing to Donald Trump.

  • Feral Cat Day and TNR

    By Karin Sherbin

        October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, and locally Bedford Cares will mark the day by organizing volunteers to conduct Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) around the town and county to sterilize feral cats and vaccinate them against rabies.

  • Trump supporters ‘deplorable?’ Oh, yeah

        The big news in the presidential race last week was Donald Trump’s admission that, yes, Barack Obama, our 44th president, duly elected twice by the American people, was actually born in this country.
        Apparently, Trump is now willing to let Obama and his family stay in the country, since he’s determined, once and for all, the president’s origins. It remains a mystery how and why he thinks this holy mission fell upon him, but, you know, we’re dealing with Donald Trump here, so who knows?
