Big shoes to fill

With this last week’s issue, The Record-Review closeds an important chapter in its 20-year history.    Long-time editor R.J. Marx is relocating with his wife, Eve, to take a new assignment as editor of two newspapers on the Oregon coast.  

He leaves a legacy of journalistic excellence, setting a high bar for his successors. His achievements are only partly reflected in the numerous awards he won individually and for the paper during his tenure.  They are also recognized in the flood of emails this
week from neighbors and news sources, expressing gratitude for his leadership and praising his contributions to community life.

Occupying the editor’s chair offers the means and the responsibility to foster community dialogue in the service of making life better for all who reside here.  That’s what inspired me to say “Yes” two weeks ago, when my -longtime friend and fellow jazz lover, known variously as Rick or simply R.J., asked me to consider filling in as editor on an interim basis until the publisher finds a permanent successor.

With Arbor Day arriving today, April 24, it’s especially fitting that long-time Bedford resident, Ken Kurzweil, won the New York State Arbor Day “Poster of the Year” contest for his timeless photograph of the Bedford Oak. The winning image was taken in the midsummer, with the oak in full bloom. Mr. Kurzweil has also photographed the majestic tree in all four seasons, from the same angle, and composed a framed collage of four photos representing the oak in each season, which sits above the fireplace at his Bedford home.

After taking many photographs of the Bedford Oak, a friend suggested that Mr. Kurzweil enter the Arbor Day competition. He won the 2015 “Poster of the Year” award for his summer photograph of the tree. As a winner, over 100,000 copies of the Bedford Oak poster will be printed and distributed at schools, fairs and other public happenings throughout the state.
