• It depends on who you ask

        I’ve been pondering Rick Howell’s “Liberal Agenda” column from the Bedford Bulletin’s March 20 edition. He took a break from the one-note symphony he has been playing for nearly two years now — telling us how much he hates President Donald Trump — to come to the defense of a fellow denizen of the “Democratic” Party’s extreme left swamp.

  • A life story

    By James F. Burns
    Retired professor
    University of Florida

        March is the month of my 80th birthday.  I grew up in a hilly and woodsy section of semi-rural Ohio.  A neighbor’s car rolled down one of those hills and into a lake.  When retrieved by a wrecker, the car was full of fish.  A wag called out, “That’s a heck of a way to go fishing.”

  • Destination Bedford!

        Tourism is a dynamic and competitive industry that requires consistent engagement and investment. 

  • Is Trump’s mental illness getting worse?

        In a remarkable weekend of anger, mental instability, and childlike petulance, this ridiculous excuse for a president we’re enduring appears to have crashed and burned mentally in a single 48 hours, tweeting and re-tweeting crazy stuff at least 52 times.
        At a time when most people were thinking about the victims in the world’s latest act of gun violence in New Zealand, well, it was a subject far from Donald Trump’s disturbed mind.

  • War over war powers

        While the media has been obsessed over President Donald Trump’s war with the ghost of John McCain, Congress has been fussing over U. S. aid to Saudi Arabia in that country’s war against Houthi rebels in Yemen.

  • Omar’s remarks weren’t ‘anti-Semitic’

        U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar is a freshman Democrat from Minnesota who won office last year in the anti-Trump wave that put the House of Representatives back in Democratic hands.
        She’s 37, a mother of three, and was born in Somalia, which makes her the first African-born member of Congress in our history. There’s something else about her that disturbs far too many people in this country, especially “Christian conservatives:” she’s a Muslim.

  • Trump foreign policy mostly good

        Midway through his first term, President Donald Trump’s foreign policy has been mostly good.

  • Supporting our military families with safe housing

    By Sen. Tim Kaine
        There has been recent attention on the national scope of dangerous conditions in military base housing, including children poisoned by lead and lapses in oversight that have put military families at risk.

  • Preparing the way for impeachment

        With the request from the House Judiciary Committee for relevant documents from more than 80 people or organizations regarding Donald Trump’s likely obstruction of justice, it’s clear House Democrats aren’t waiting around for the Mueller report.
        The committee chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler, of New York, has already stated that he believes Trump has obstructed justice, and it’s a fairly easy argument to make.
