Some Views of the Bedford Cemetery, Bedford, Ohio

Below are some photographs of gravetones taken on December 13, 2014 at the Bedford City Cemetery in Bedford, Ohio.  

Unfortunately, the very bright white marble gravestones seen in some of these photographs are examples of gravestones that were subjected to abrasive grinding by a Nyalox Brush wheel attached to a power drill.  The outer skin surface on these gravestones has been removed in order to make them appear so white. 

This aggrssive procedure it not endorsed or condoned by any nationally recognized preservation organization such as the Association for Gravestone Studies or the NCPTT of the National Park Service.   These gravestones were harmed by such an aggressive method of cleaning that was not necessary as there are other choices such as cleaning with a soft bristle brush and distilled water.

Meeting the Moores

Recently, I had the opportunity to tour the Lorain Historical Society’s Moore House Museum and meet the life-size replicas of the members of the Moore family that were created by local artist, Peggy Asensio.

Leonard Moore was Lorain’s 11th Mayor.
During his term [1916-1917], the city acquired the property which is now known as Lakeview Park.

This is Leonard’s wife, Caroline.
Mrs Moore

These are their daughters [not necessarily in this order]: Eleanor, Ruth and Helen.

This was my first time visiting and I will definitely go back. It is a beautiful house and there is a lot “Moore” here to be seen and learned about Lorain!

I had the pleasure of working with “Captain”
Carl Reese at WJW AM 850 Radio from February of 1981 to August of 1982.

Carl was a genuinely nice person to everyone and a greatly talented broadcaster whose golden voice was easily recognized by his radio audience during the decades he broadcasted on the Cleveland airwaves.
