    Two special called meetings and the regularly scheduled meeting of the Bedford City Commission took place within eight days.
    The first special meeting was called for Tuesday, April 11 to have the second reading of the amended budget read moving funds around in order to pay the newly hired ABC Administrator at $500 per month. As it is the end of the fiscal year, they approved to move $1,000.00 for May and June.
    Mayor Todd Pollock and Commissioner Tammy Scott will be working on the Budget for FY 2017-2018.

  • My home has somehow spawned a new, hybrid, highly toxic variety of dust. I’m not entirely sure if it’s a new permutation or a ghastly amalgamation brewed by the contributions of each individual dust-producer in my home.
    The dust producers are, in no particular order, cats, dogs, dust mites, my family, and stuff tracked in from the yard. Stuff tracked in from the yard are, in no particular order, cats, dogs, birds, horses, squirrels, trees, grass, hay and the entire complement of every plant I’m raising or were blown there by a errant breeze.

    All throughout high school, my helping hand has always been Brigette Kunselman, my school’s guidance counsellor—however, it wouldn’t do her justice to describe her simply as a guidance counsellor as she is so much more. Throughout the last four years she has acted as my college advisor, scheduling confidant, testing administrator, and a personal friend.

  • Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.
