  • Turning 102

    Virginia Robertson has always worked hard and though she turned 102 years old this past Sunday she’s not yet ready to slow down.

        “I do everything I want to do,” Virginia said this week about remaining active. “I worked hard all my life — from the time I was knee-high to a duck.”

  • New home makes room for more books

        Going from North Bridge to South Bridge Street isn’t a big move, geographically, but it made a big difference for the owners of Bella Books.

        Gary Guida and Kim Cashman had been operating a used book and antique shop for a year in a location that they shared with another business. Moving to a spot next to the Bedford Social Club, across the street from Still Waters Cafe, has tripled their space.

        “It looks more like a proper book store,” Guida said.

  • When making spending decisions, governments must now set aside rosy projections

  • Providing for our military and our veterans

    America’s veterans have engaged in one of the noblest forms of public service: defending our nation.  These brave, patriotic men and women have helped to liberate victims of oppression, spread democracy across the world and preserve the freedoms our nation was built upon.  They have served on aircraft carriers in distant oceans, kept the peace on volatile borders, and patrolled the skies of international hot spots.  Theirs is a service marked by humility and born of a love of country.  For these selfless actions, we in turn have a responsibility to ensure that our

  • Steamroll the GOP on health care

        President Barack Obama has bent over backwards to try and be “bipartisan” about health care reform. From the beginning of his administration, and on every single issue, this president has made what most consider a noble effort to get support for his policies from the other party.

  • ObamaCare supporters in deep panic

        President Barack Obama’s radical overhaul of America’s health care system is running into a serious problem. The problem is that most people don’t want it, and most of those who don’t want it have made sure that their congressmen and senators know of their opposition.
