    Each year, the Bedford Rotary Club recognizes a member who has exemplified exceptional service work for the club and the community at large. Jim Hurst received the honor this year, not only for his service in 2014-2015, but for an accumulated record of service since joining Bedford Rotary in 1999.  As all club members recognize, being a part of Bedford Rotary means lots of time commitments and often a sharing of one’s resources to make the club viable. Jim has done this willingly for many years.

  • On the way to car rider a few days ago I decided to puzzle over something that was unnecessary but engaging. I spend a disturbing amount of time mulling over the unnecessary. Despite my awareness of this habit I continued to mull. With absolutely no warning, the term legally dead popped into my mind. To me dead is pretty clear. Why are we expected to legalize this condition? Does being legally dead offer one entrance into an exclusive club? Does membership grant the decedent all rights and privileges afforded to this particular state of being?
