  • Keep the two-term limit for presidents

  • Shop local first

    This season Centertown businesses will be staying open late as part of the Christmas holiday festivities. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: If you haven’t already shopped locally, this is a good time to start.     

        Buying local is more than a nice slogan.

    Unwarranted attack


        There are some things a man just shouldn’t do in life, like spit in the wind or tug on Superman’s cape.

    Unsung heroes


        Another election has been conducted successfully in the City of Bedford.  And there a group of civic minded citizens who made it possible. 
        I would like to publicly acknowledge the election officials who worked to make this election run so smoothly.  As a recent article in a State Board of Election publication put it  “working Election Day brings a whole new meaning to dog tired!”
