Today's Opinions

  • Rally around the Trump

        I wonder if Rick Howell, of Liberal Agenda fame, ever reads The Economist? If he doesn’t, then he really should try to get a copy of last week’s edition and read the magazine’s Lexington column. The column provides an excellent description of why “Democrats’” current approach to opposing President Donald Trump is going to fail.

  • He’s surprised us before

        Former Fifth District Congressman Tom Perriello has entered Virginia’s gubernatorial race, seeking the Democratic nomination for governor for the November 2017 election.
        Perriello’s entrance into the race, challenging current Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam for the nomination, was a surprise to many in the Party, but then Perriello has provided political surprises before.

  • Letter 02/01/17

    Payback time

        The recent editorial entitled “The Height of Hypocrisy” by John Barnhart was excellent.
        The Obama administration and the DNC was appalled by the Russians interfering in our recent election as if  this has never occurred in human history. The fact of the matter is that many countries are engaged in hacking, cyber attacks and open espionage. 

  • Sheriff’s Corner

    By Sheriff Mike Brown

        Bedford County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Mike Brown want everyone to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday whether you’re throwing a party or attending one.
        The most important part of your game plan for the big game: a shutdown defense that prevents drunk driving.  Drunk driving kills. It takes a life every 51 minutes in America.

  • The start of something new

        Here I am, the new intern at the Bedford Bulletin,  Emily Scruggs.
        For this first column, I’d like to simply introduce myself. I grew up just north of Bedford in Botetourt County and graduated from James River High School what seems like an eternity ago.

  • Short session reviews biennial budget

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        We have now completed the third week of the seven-week session of the 2017 Virginia General Assembly.  There is much work to be done between now and February 25, when the session is adjourned.

  • Everything cost somebody something

    By Delegate Scott Garett

        I joined you in watching the 45th President of the United States take the oath of office this week. Nowhere in the world does the transition of power happen so peacefully and beautifully. Please join me and Whitney in praying for our nation and our new leaders in the days ahead.

  • Budget is General Assembly’s responsibility

    By Senator Steve Newman

        This has been a very busy week in Richmond.   We’ve been setting some unusual and surprising records this session.  The number of visitors to the General Assembly Building, where all our offices are located and where most of the committee hearings are held, has reached numbers not seen in nearly 30 years.
