Letter to the Editor, 23 May 2019: The Bedford Garden Club Thanks the Community for its Support

Submitted by Carol Amick, Bedford Garden Club sale chair

The Bedford Garden Club wishes to thank the community for its overwhelming response at our annual Geranium, Perennial and Floral Arrangement sale held May 11th.

We sold out almost all the beautiful geraniums, Gerbera daisies, verbena, and creeping phlox; hundreds and hundreds of perennials dug from the gardens of Garden Club members as well as non-Club members found new homes to beautify and please local gardeners.

Letter to the Editor, 3 March 2019 ~ Fighting Ticks and Tick-Borne Disease

By Sarah Legge

My 3-year-old son was bitten by a tick this week. We found the tick embedded in his head as we put him to bed on Tuesday, April 2. We had been a few hikes over the weekend in our neighborhood (including one at Fawn Lake in Bedford), which may have been where he picked up the tick. Or it may have come from our backyard, hopped off our dog, or from a walk at his daycare (also in Bedford) earlier in that day. We weren’t expecting to have to worry about ticks so early in the spring, but, sadly, that was a mistake. I’m writing to share this experience and to encourage you to reach out to your representatives to support an increase in funding for tick-borne diseases and Lyme disease prevention in Massachusetts.

Letter to the Editor, 19 March 2019: A Campaign Thank You from Emily Mitchell

By Emily Mitchell

It may be March, but it’s the season of thanksgiving around here—namely, to the voters and volunteers who helped elect me as Bedford’s newest Selectman on March 9. Since Election Day, life has been a whirlwind: I was sworn in and attended my first Selectman’s meeting (on the other side of the table, that is) on March 11, and I’m now gearing up for Town Meeting on March 25 (with a new start time of 7:00 pm!). I’m re-familiarizing myself with Open Meeting law, making sure I fully understand and can answer questions about the articles I’ll be presenting at Town Meeting, and discerning which committee liaison appointments I’d be best suited for.

Letter to the Editor, 17 March 2019: Thank you from Bill Moonan

By Bill Moonan

Thanks to all the Bedford residents who made my re-election to the position of Selectman possible: those who helped my campaign, and those who cast a vote for me on March 9.  Thanks to the many people who added their names to a letter supporting me which appeared in your publication.  Thanks to the many individuals who took the time to write personal letters supporting me.  The public support of all of you, both signers and letter-writers, was critical in my campaign.

Letter to the Editor, 16 March 2019: Chris Gittins ~ Reflections, Congratulations, and Thank You

By Chris Gittins

Town Election was one week ago today.  One week isn’t a great deal of time to reflect – particularly as much of my week has been spent catching up on things which took a backseat for the past two months!  I’m sure that I’ll have more thoughts as time passes, but allow me to share my initial thoughts. 

Congratulations to Emily and Bill on their election as Selectmen.   Emily’s commitment to accessibility, livability, and inclusivity will build community in ways that are important to me, my family, and to Bedford.   I value Bill’s commitment to creating a Bedford Museum and to establishing a Bedford Cultural District.  I appreciate his offer to work together on matters that I spoke to, including environmental issues.  I will take him up on that.
