Today's Opinions

  • The farmer

        They are the heart and soul of what makes this country great.
        They till the ground, raise the cattle and provide food for our plates.
        They are the American farmers.
        They come in all sizes; all genders; and all ages. Young and old spend their days out in the fields doing what needs to be done—mending fences, raising the crops, tending to their orchards and livestock.

    The bridge
    problem
     
        Thank you for your article on the truck problem on Wolf Creek Bridge on Dickerson Mill Rd, (March 8, 2018).  After living ½ mile from the bridge for the last 4 years now, I believe there is no easy fix for the issue discussed in the article, and there are other risks on this section of road that must also be addressed.   

  • Agreement on budget elusive

    By Senator David Suetterlein

        The 2018 Regular Session of the General Assembly adjourned on Saturday. Consensus was achieved on several important issues in the final days of session, but bicameral agreement on the Commonwealth’s two year budget continued to prove elusive.

  • Session ends as scheduled

    By Delegate Kathy Byron
                            The 2018 General Assembly session ended as scheduled on Saturday.  Of the 2,606 bills submitted by legislators, 874 were approved.  One very important bill, the state budget, was not.  Consequently, we’ll be returning to Richmond soon to approve a two-year spending plan.

  • Budget adoption: The sooner the better

    By Delegate Terry Austin

  • Cynthia Dunbar’s extreme, fanatical candidacy

        Of all the candidates who want the Republican nomination for Congress in the Sixth Congressional District, there is one who stands out from the crowd for harsh extremism and sheer lunacy.
        Cynthia Dunbar is a right-wing import from Texas (there’s some immigration I’d like to stop). She was notorious for being one of the religious fanatics who gained control of the state board of education. 

  • Do you trust the government? ?

        Last week Rick Howell in his Liberal Agenda, typical of the left wing extremists who dominate the “Democratic” Party, blamed the problem of mass shootings in the United States on the presence of guns  in America. At the beginning of of his column, he identified Columbine High School as the scene of America’s first mass shooting in a high school. He correctly gave the year of that mass shooting as 1999.

    Regrets moving here

        Living in Bedford County is like in a third world country—no law and order as Mike Brown sits and ignores public safety issues.
