Today's Opinions

  • An important conversation is underway

    Right now, an important national conversation is underway in our communities. We’ve all seen the reports of deadly attacks on police officers and excessive use of force by some law enforcement officers. These events have strained race relations and heightened tensions as well as further added to feelings of mistrust between communities and law enforcement. The loss of these lives is tragic, and, like you, I want to see an end to this violence.

     

  • The Affordable Care Act: more costly than ever

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Our democracy’s death will be our own fault

        There has been a great deal of hyperventilating in British tabloids about Russia and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. To see some of their stuff on the Internet, you would think World War III was about to start. Recently I was on a Trump vs Clinton Facebook debate and one person posted an article from one of these publications, I think it was the Dailey Mail, that had him convinced Russia is massing for an attack.

  • Hillary doesn’t deserve the hatred

        In this presidential election year, one party’s nominee is plainly unqualified, immature despite advanced age, bigoted, explosive, and running as a “brilliant” businessman despite several bankruptcies and a history of mountainous debt.
        The other nominee is supremely qualified, with a proven track record of public service going back decades, devoted both to family and people at large, and has made history as the first woman chosen by a major party for president.

  • A lack of competition in Obamacare hurts patients

    It’s a crazy system.” That’s what Bill Clinton had to say about Obamacare recently. It’s not often that we agree on something, but I feel the same way as President Clinton and so do the millions of Americans facing higher health care costs and reduced access as a result of this seriously flawed law.

    A suggestion

        It’s been inspiring to follow the Bulletin’s coverage of the developing story of “Teens with a Dream”, to be involved by financial contribution, and to see this Bedford-based organization serve as a pilot program for towns and cities in other states, and also receive recognition for their work. 

  • Letters 12/21/16

        For generously supporting the “Dare to Care” TLC (toys for local Children) “A Child’s Christmas” program!
        We were worried about the Toy Count, with us not having the Flotilla this year but, the SML community pulled through for the children! This year, we’ve collected around 2500 toys, for our local children of need!
        We would like to thank Westlake Auto for all they do for our toy drive!
