Today's Opinions

  • Believest thou this?

    Matthew 27:50-54
    Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

    Is sheriff a
    relative?

        I have not renewed my Bulletin subscription for several reasons.
        I was born in Bedford in 1932 and apparently have outlived most of my friends and family to the point I do not recognize names in The Bulletin anymore.

  • Today’s students are tomorrow’s innovators 

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

We visited schools in Rocky Mount, Gretna, Chatham, Altavista, Brookneal, Cumberland, Palmyra, Farmville, Stanardsville, and Charlottesville discussing topics ranging from computer science to political science.

     

  • Protecting retirement savings Options

    Saving up for a rainy day – whether it’s a few quarters in your piggy bank as a child or investing in a retirement plan as an adult, many of us have heard from a young age about the importance of saving for the future. Saving is important to your financial security and independence. However, for many men and women who have worked their entire lives, every penny saved for retirement is a challenge.

     

  • Judge election authority rests solely with the General Assembly

    By Delegate Kathy Byron
        The 2016 session of the General Assembly ended a day early, with legislators approving a balanced budget and fulfilling their constitutional duty to appoint judges to the Commonwealth’s courts.  And for the second year in a row, it completed its work a day ahead of schedule.

  • Early finish saves taxpayers money

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        The 2016 Virginia General Assembly is now adjourned.  It is my belief that this year’s session was one of the most productive and successful in recent memory, not only for the Commonwealth at large, but more important, for our region in particular.

  • Budget provides significant money for public schools

    By Senator Steve Newman

        The 2016 session of the Virginia General Assembly has come to a close, ending one of the most productive sessions, and doing it ahead of schedule.  Legislators completed their work, passing over 800 bills, approving a balanced two-year biennial budget, and electing a new justice to the Supreme Court of Virginia.

  • Reagan’s example lost in today’s GOP

        The recent death of Nancy Reagan brought with it a heavy media concentration on politics and history from the 1980s, reliving the time when her husband was unbeatable at the polls and the Republican Party was a very different institution.
        Nancy, herself, probably set the example for the modern first lady, before Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama. She seldom got involved in policy, as Hillary did, but she was the most important person close to the president.
