  • More than snowmen

        You probably noticed the orange orangutan leaning on a lamp post next to Town Kitchen Provisions. The sculpture, made entirely of snow, is the work of Bobby Fuller, owner of Bartertown Art. His art studio is in transition, at present, and is slated to reopen near the Millstone Tea Room this summer.

        Fuller’s normal art medium is stuff people throw away.
        “Everything I make is out of 100 percent recycled,” Fuller said.

  • Springer Spaniel from Bedford County takes honors at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

    Wynmoor Sweetgrass White Diamonds, a Springer Spaniel who grew up in Bedford County, won top honors in the Sporting Group category at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Her registered name — she normally goes by Liz — reflects her rather complicated background.

        The Wynmoor part of her registered name comes from Wynmoor English Springers, the Bedford County Kennel where she grew up.
        “My parents are the ones who started off with it,” said Dr. Erin Kerfoot.

  • Read the fine print

        Clerk of the Circuit Court Cathy Hogan said she has had a number of property owners — three in one morning — come to her with a mailing from a company called Record Transfer Services promising to provide the property owner with a copy of his deed and property assessment profile for an $83 fee.

        The Bedford International Alliance was formed to cultivate a relationship between Bedford communities in England and France.

        The organization has a relationship with Ivybridge, England, the small town near the place where the Bedford Boys trained. The BIA also has a relationship with Bedfordshire, Bedford County’s English namesake. On one of the Alliance’s regular overseas trips, members were hosted by the 15th Duke of Bedford at his ancestral home.

  • Miller steps down from NAACP presidency

        Ronnie Miller is stepping down as president of the Bedford Branch of the NAACP.

        “I took over four years ago with the intent of getting the chapter started again,” Miller said.
        The chapter had virtually ceased functioning and was in danger of losing its charter. Miller said he was asked to take over because he is a businessman. Miller owns Bedford Funeral home, which was founded by his parents Frank and Frances Miller in 1962.

  • Candidates to be chosen by primary

        Two storm systems got together to bring the Bedford area its first significant snowfall of the winter.
        And for some town of Bedford workers, expecting a day off for President’s Day, it turned into a work day. And work night.
        And there may be more problems on the way.
