  • Session will feature some 2000 pieces of legislation

        The General Assembly is back in session, ready for another year.  A lot has changed since we last met.  November’s elections have not only affected policy in our nation’s capitol, they have already changed the dynamic in Richmond.

    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.

        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!

    An educated idiot

        Recently Rick Howell wrote an article in your paper trying to make the case that college educated people voted in waves for Hillary Clinton in the last election -- trying to make the point that uneducated Trump voters were stupid. The only thing it proves to me is that when you educate an idiot -- all you get is an educated idiot.

    Source of
    comfort

        As a new resident in Bedford County, I have taken note of the significant number of young people that have lost their lives in auto accidents. As a parent that has lost a child, I would like to share a source of comfort, especially during this time of year. (My youngest son was an Iraq War veteran - a victim of PTSD)

  • The Year of Your Youth

    By Brandi Mitchell
    JF Intern

        If you looked on my phone right now, you would find a playlist entitled “The Year of My Youth.” Thirty-two songs, all written about being 17. No coincidence, I am 17. And I can personally attest that this is a year unlike any other.

  • Pay study results anticipated in advance

    By Steve Wilkerson
    Chairman
    Bedford County Board of Supervisors

        It has come to my attention that there are some questions regarding the timing of the implementation of Bedford County’s pay and classification study. I wanted to take a moment to discuss the timeline of events regarding the eighteen month process that led to the adoption of a new pay plan for the County’s employees.

  • Trump conned a lot of Christians

        During the election, there was a stupid sign in Bedford County along U.S. 460 East that claimed to quote Donald Trump. It read “No one reads the Bible more than I do.”
        Sounds like him, doesn’t it? We know how he brags about himself. No one knows more, or does anything better, than him. But if people really believe that he’s some sort of private holy man, reading the Bible all the time, well, they’re easy to fool.
