Working with Mothers Out Front, a grassroots organization of mothers and other caregivers, I have seen the hard legislative struggle to put just laws and policies into place that will help us swiftly combat climate change and still protect consumers. In the past, many hopeful bills have not made it through both the Massachusetts Senate and the House of Representatives.

School’s Out, and Springs Brook Park is Open ~ Summer? Summer!

Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

School’s out, and Springs Brook Park was in full operation this afternoon! Friday’s mild temperatures drew a small crowd to the park, and most of them were in the water. A family brought out-of-town cousins, strollers were parked along the water’s edge, families picnicked in the grove, the spray park was in use, and kids were playing miniature golf and basketball.
