In the June 2020 Print Edition

Jun 01, 2020 03:00AM ● By Pamela Johnson
June has arrived. Best wishes for a safe and Happy Father's Day!

Businesses are reopening, some more slowly than others, but the threat from Covid-19 is far from over. Hopefully people keep observing the novel coronavirus guidelines such as wearing masks, social distancing and frequent handwashing, so that we don't end up right back where we were in mid- to late-March.

Our June issue features Ken Hamwey's Municipal Spotlight, which is a question and answer session with Bellingham School Superintendent Peter Marano about possible scenarios for school reopening in September. 

We've also got a look at the pros and cons of the proposed proposition 2-1/2 override being sought by the school department. This question will be on the ballot for the June 9 town election.

We have profiles submitted by each of the three candidates for Selectman (Bob Biagi, Kelly Grant and Don Martinis). This is the only contested race in the election.

The Bellingham Bulletin does not charge a subscription fee, so advertising generates 100% of our operating revenue.  At this time when so many businesses are struggling, I would implore you to please support our advertisers, and indeed shop locally, whenever possible. (It would literally be impossible for us to produce, print and mail the Bulletin to you without their support, nor could we maintain our website or post the digital edition there.)

Below are some highlights from the June print issue. Feel free to browse through them or scroll below to the box containing our digital edition. (Click in the center of the newspaper icon to enlarge to full screen; press Escape key to exit). Thanks!
