SPOTLIGHT

When did diversity become a
dirty word?

While we’ve been the first to hold public officials feet to the fire on any number of issues, we’re a bit confused by the furor regarding the cancellation of a proposed diversity conference for the community and community leaders in the Bedford Central School District. We’re also surprised that superintendent Jere Hochman so readily cancelled the conference, stating that the district was “not ready” for that type of training. While we’re not convinced this conference was the right answer for our community, diversity training should be a primary goal for students, administration and community members alike.

The conference, “Equity, Expectations, and Excellence: Institute on Leadership and Racism,” would have taken place Nov. 3 and Nov. 4, but was canceled by the superintendent on Oct. 8, after some residents said that the district did not need additional education in diversity, and that the plan was an “insult” to the Bedford Central public.

Many were against the use of words like “internalized racism” and “white privilege,” as well as how they said the administration seems to favor the Hispanic population, even at the expense of other students.

Board uses ‘incremental’ approach to slow Cherry Street traffic

By ANTHONY R. MANCINI

Katonah residents fell into a heated debate on Nov. 18 about whether recommended traffic changes along Cherry Street should be adopted. Bedford’s town board approved changes to line painting along the street during the public town board meeting.

The town board voted to paint narrower lane lines on Cherry Street, paint crosswalks at Cherry’s intersection with Valley Road and install signs to warn motorists of it. These changes came after the town approved a traffic study at the intersections of Quicks Lane and Cherry Street and Valley Road and Cherry Street, due to complaints from neighbors that drivers were speeding along the town road, which has a speed limit of 30 miles per hour.

Many area residents who attended the Nov. 18 public meeting did not agree with the changes. Some said that the road would become ugly, too urban in character or begin to resemble a highway if additional traffic calming measures were installed. Some also said that Cherry Street has had problems with speeding cars for years and called for no changes.  Read more >
