  • Were the polls right this time?

        As of this writing, I don’t yet know how the election turned out. We haven’t had our own presses for over a decade and contract our printing out to others, so we have to have all our pages electronically transferred to the folks who print the Bulletin on their schedule. Their schedule dictates we have our pages finished and transmit them by late Tuesday afternoon. Therefore, there are not yet any election results for me to see.

  • Honoring our veterans

        Throughout every war our military personnel have sacrificially given of themselves to protect this country and the well-being of those who fought alongside them. The story below was recorded by one of those veterans who spent his final years at English Meadows, the Elks Home Campus, here in Bedford, before passing away earlier this year.

        Town Council authorized, last week after closed door meetings,  a public hearing on a proposal made by David McCormack to repurpose the empty school buildings of Bedford Middle School and Old Yellow. The hearing will be held in Council chambers on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m.
        According to Town Manager Bart Warner, Council felt they needed to gauge public feeling on the project. At present, there is no tentative agreement between McCormack and the town.
        “Neither party has agreed to anything,” Warner said.

        Last Friday  members of the Bedford community got the latest scoop on bringing an Amtrak passenger rail station to Bedford.  
        Brian McCrodden of the Bedford/Franklin Regional Rail Initiative (BFRRI) provided insight into where the effort stands and what is up next.
        “We want you to be on board with us,” noted Mary Zirkle, the town of Bedford’s economic development coordinator. “Get on board.”

  • Man lost three sons in three months in World War I

        Veterans Day was formerly called Armistice Day. That’s because Nov. 11 marked the day that the armistice that ended the Great War took effect.

        World War I was once known as the Great War before World War II, which was even bloodier, came along. Sunday marks the centennial of the end of that war.
