Here are the top stories from Bedford today:

  1. That The City of Bedford announced ongoing roadworks at the junction of County Road and Back River Road. Construction work was scheduled for Wednesday 16 November from 7am to 5pm but may be postponed to Thursday 17 November due to weather conditions. The hard shoulder will be widened and a traffic control island will be erected. (Bedford patch)
  2. Do you have a home for a rabbit? How about a hedgehog? Find out how you can adopt these and other pets with the New Hampshire Animal Rescue League. See all “Bedford Area Pets Available for Adoption” here: (Bedford Patch)
  3. When 29-year-old Travis Janvrin suffered a stroke that required him to use a wheelchair, he found it difficult to find accessible accommodation. Janvrin ran three different T-Mobile stores, including the Bedford store, until a recent stroke left him in a wheelchair. He was forced to vacate his third-floor rental apartment, was told to call the fire department to help get him in and out of his upper-floor apartment, applied for apartment vouchers, and stayed in hotels (including The Hampton Inn in Bedford) until then. He finally found a barrier-free apartment on the first floor. See the full story here: (Manchester Ink Link)
  4. Granite State Bell Ringers will ring in the holiday season on November 27th at LaBelle Winery in Amherst. It’s one of many events planned at our favorite nearby winery. You can also walk through charming themed Christmas lights at LaBelle Lights at their Derry location. Find out more here: (Weingut LaBelle)
