NB Famers Go Green

Herald of Oct. 8 2009

An informational meeting at Northern Bedford High School outlining the state Clean and Green program has prompted additional Southern Cove farmers to apply for the preferential tax assessment program. Approximately 135 dairymen and spouses and woodlands owners turned out for the two-hour discussion led by Robert Roland, Clean and green coordinator with the Bedford County Tax Assessment Office. Last week’s public meeting was requested by Scott King and Teri Biddle, NB’s superintendent and business manager, respectively.

W. Gene Henry, life-long Martinsburg resident, presented council with an architect’s drawing of a new municipal building–his gift to the community. The five council members who were present wasted no time in accepting the offer of a one-story, colonial red brick building to be constructed on the site of the former Benson School. Construction is expected to start in the spring. The building will be located at Woodlawn Avenue between Walnut and Mulberry streets with garage space.
