    The Bedford Rotary Club welcomed both current District Governor Stuart Alexander and Assistant Governor JoAnn Hepperman to our club meeting on Dec. 6.  This is an annual event our club looks forward to and prepares for. The meeting was very upbeat and, like governors before, Alexander was aware of Bedford Rotary’s important involvement in many service activities for our community. We seem to be ahead of the many clubs in our district in this regard, as Alexander noted.

    The Milton City Commission met for its regularly scheduled meeting last Thursday night at the municipal building in Milton. Mayor Denny Jackson opened the meeting with a discussion about the sidewalk project on Ferry Street near the boat dock. No action was taken but the commission is still working on the project that includes a small grant to help fund it.

  • Just as soon as I thought that I had finally taken my most humiliating picture, along came the passport photo requirement. I went to the post office to apply for this document with that familiar, sinking sensation I experience whenever a camera is pointed in my direction.

  • There’s a group of people in North Carolina who call themselves People of the Second Chance (POSC).
    One of the things they do is throw parties -- for people just out of prison, for recovering drug addicts, for misfits, for the discouraged, for the uncelebrated and forgotten, for the overlooked and hurting, for those bowed down with guilt and shame.
    What they do is backwards and upside down. The parties aren’t for the straight A student, the athlete of the year, the one who does things right most of the time.
