    Information questioned

        I just had the opportunity to watch the Young Republican’s Forum from last week and want to know where the Candidate Captain Miller is getting his information.
        God blessed me with three sons and two of them, thanks to the drugs in our Bedford County Public Schools, two of them have been jailed or in detention because as a working mother I just can’t watch them every second of the day. Parents have to trust the school system and the sheriff’s department.

    Supports Miller for Sheriff

        It is both a privilege and an honor for me to endorse Captain Mike Miller for Bedford County Sheriff. I have known Mike and his family for over 30 years, since serving as his pastor back in the mid 80’s. I have found him to be a loving husband and father and a man of sincere faith in God.

        I read our lovely landfill will be full sooner than expected and it will cost many millions to expand it and possibly not in time.
        At the same time today, I saw a new show my 4-year-old wanted to watch on PBS in which they had a trash problem and solved it by 90% reduction of garbage. Using recycling, reuse and reduction and more. The show is called Cyberchase I think in case you also have a 4-year-old who thinks it’s age appropriate for them to watch.

        As I approach my retirement, having served 40 years with the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, I want to express my sincere appreciation to the citizens of our county for their continued support of the law enforcement community.
        A change of leadership at the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office is imminent at the end of this year, thus I ask for your support of candidate Mike Miller.

    Disgracing their

        I read the article “Bedford PD to carry mags honoring ‘Bedford Boy’” in the 13 March 2019 (vol. 58, no. 51) edition of “The Bedford Bulletin”.  I was horrified, repulsed and shocked.

    fundamentalist Islam

        Now that the Democrats have decided to embrace the flagrant anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar, it’s time to discuss the connection between anti-Semitism and fundamentalist Islam. This connection is almost never mentioned because of fear of being labeled Islamophobic, a term coined by the Islamist group CAIR to cut off criticism of Islam.

    Leaning signs

        In Bedford at the top of the ramp from E. Main St up to Rt 460 W is a Yield sign that is leaning about 45 degrees away from the road.
        It has been gradually leaning over the past year or more, but now is leaning so much that motorists are running out into much faster traffic. A vehicle travelling at 45-50 mph  on Rt 460 W should not be forced to yield to a vehicle going 25-30 as they come up the ramp. Who has jurisdiction of this sign - VDOT or the Town of Bedford?

    Tax heroes return to Bedford

        Each year a small but dedicated band of AARP volunteers show up in Bedford to help seniors navigate the frequently illogical and always mind-numbing document we all know as the tax return.  These men and women begin in early February and show up twice a week until the 12th hour for returns in April.

    Tempest in a Teapot

        The Spirit Week controversy at JFHS is a “Tempest in a Teapot.” The students did nothing wrong, the school officials did nothing wrong, and the superintendent did nothing wrong. There was no disruption in the normal school day.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome

        Do all village idiots have an arrogant grin when they are lying?   Or is that a characteristic unique to  lying liberals?
        Rick Howell’s column (Real Christians wouldn’t support Trump) is a real hoot.
    True Christians would not judge others like Rickie did.  And they would not be lying like some village idiot who is too dumb to know better.
