        I picked up a Bedford Paper last week and the headline read,  “The Valve is Turned: and the Water is Flowing.”

  • 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.

  • What does Russia have on Trump?

        I can’t help but wonder: Are a lot of people who voted for Donald Trump now beginning to figure out just how – here’s the “S” word again – stupid it was to do that?
         It could well be, now that we see the almost daily reminders of just how outrageous and regrettable it is that this man will be president. We can now pretty assuredly believe that the Russian regime of Vladimir Putin did everything it could to make him president.

  • The height of hypocrisy

            It’s been interesting to listen to President Barack Obama calling Russia’s alleged interference in our most recent election a “threat to democracy.”

    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. 

  • 2016 SML water safety council wrap up

    By Pat Massa
    WSC Chairman

        Each year the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VADGIF) collects data on deaths, injuries and property damage designated as reportable, though not all of these incidents are reported to authorities.  After enjoying a fatality-free 2015, we incurred one death, eight injuries and fifteen other recordable incidents in 2016.

  • The 7 Billion and you

    By Brandi Mitchell
    Intern

        There are 7 billion people on this planet. 7 billion different faces, 7 billion distinct minds with different senses of humor, different interests, different talents, different laughs.
        An earth populated with humans vastly different and incredible in 7 billion extraordinary ways, but who share the same moon, the same sun, the same ground, the same burdens of humanity. All of these people wandering the same earth.

  • Join the Resistance on Jan. 19!

        We are bearing down upon Inauguration Day, when the tragic results of The Great Stupidity of 2016 come to fruition.
        For the angry whites who did so much to make this happen, it will be a day of vengeful triumph against eight years of the black Muslim socialist they’ve painfully endured. (This is what they believe, whether they’d admit it or not.)
