EDITORIAL

A resolution brings relief

The sense of relief and pride that followed the Bedford Town Board’s adoption on March 7 of a resolution declaring its commitment to upholding principles of inclusiveness and the safety of all residents, regardless of immigration or other status, was almost palpable last week. In the face of mounting pressure to take a stand against rising incidents of bigotry and hate, the board also used the occasion to put to rest fears over how local police might follow the new, more aggressive federal immigration policy enforcement guidelines. It issued a reasonable, thorough and specific statement, which did not please everyone but seemed to reflect a consensus position on the main issues of tolerance, inclusiveness and public safety.

‘Everyone’s friend.’ Remembering Harry Whitman

Harry Whitman during his days at the Bedford Sportsman.

Mr. Whitman, who died Feb. 27 at the age of 85, is remembered as the beloved husband of Aimee, devoted father of two, and a man who had no enemies. 

After beginning his career on Wall Street, Mr. Whitman started the Bedford Sportsman, a fishing supply store then located in Bedford Hills, with his childhood friends Larry Kennedy and Bill Gutelius. 

Mr. Whitman held court at the Sportsman for 38 years before selling the store in 2008. Those who knew him said Mr. Whitman’s customers became his friends and his friends became his family — so almost everyone got the “family discount.”  Read more >

Warming up at Sugarfest

Guests braved frigid temperatures last Saturday, March 11, to attend Westmoreland Sanctuary’s annual Sugarfest, now in its 12th year. They were treated to a warm breakfast of homemade pancakes with 100 percent New York maple syrup and sausage. The Nanny Hagen Creek bluegrass band provided live music.
