ICYMI: The Bedford Citizen ~ Week in Review ~ Sunday, August 4, 2019

In the News

Traffic is the topic of two stories this week: An informational neighborhood traffic meeting on July 22 drew residents experiencing increased traffic, in part because of changes at the Route 62/Old Billerica Road intersection. There are short takes about roads and traffic ~ a new occasional series to share bits of information The Citizen has gleaned. And The Scallion checked in from West Bedford when road work and paving operations left neighbors feeling isolated.

The Board of Health issued a summer reminder about bats and rabies prevention. The Council on Aging announced a new networking group for job seekers over 50.  The Volunteer Coordinating Committee has released a call for residents interested in having a say in Bedford’s boards and committees.

Rep. Ken Gordon was among the legislators voting to pass the $1.3B community climate resiliency projects bill in the Massachusetts House.


Wedgewood Swim and Tennis Club reports a successful season for the club’s dive team, and in a second article tallies the results of the Dual Meet at Westford.

Marty Renzhofer profiled the Mass Warriors, a semi-pro football team that is calling Bedford’s Sabourin Field its home turf this season.


The Bedford Citizen posted one obituary last week:

Do you have unused bicycles cluttering your cellar or garage? Bicycles for Humanity will transport them to Botswana, and all you need to do is deliver them right here in Bedford from August 20 through September 2, no matter their condition.
