Here are the top stories today in Bedford:

  1. Bedford residents are rallying to save the “last historic district green space” next to the parking lot of the Bedford Public Library. Several residents are protesting a plan proposed by town officials to double parking next to the library on Meeting House Road by turning a green space into additional parking. Since early 1995, the library’s board of trustees has been pushing to double the parking, which they said is needed for library and town center events, but not everyone agrees.

  2. A shout out to Bedford college grad Ishaan Chatterjee surprising his parents not once, but twice, by giving the graduation speech. The first time was at his high school graduation. The second time around, he made sure he surprised his parents at the University of Miami ceremony. After he gave the speech, he posted their reaction on TikTok, where “it became a viral sensation.” Chatterjee decided he would audition for the college student commencement speech after he received “a little encouragement” from a friend. The video now has more than 20 million views, with more than 4 million likes and 8,000 comments. (WMUR Manchester)
