Edge Sports Center to Add 2 Full Size Outdoor Lighted Synthetic Turf Fields

Last month The Edge Sports Center got approval to replace one of their existing indoor turf fields with a second hockey rink. The Edge has also reached an agreement with Massport to lease 7 adjacent acres of land to build 2 full size outdoor lighted turf fields. One of these fields will be enclosed during the winter months. These fields will be available for rental by local sports teams. Construction is expected to begin in May.

The Additional Lighted Fields are a welcome addition to Bedford. The question is does it now make financial sense for the town to move forward in converting Sabourin Field to a synthetic turf field. While final bids for the project are expected by March 22nd. The presentation made by Gale Associates on January 3rd, projected costs for the project at $1.087 Million.

Verizon Wireless Store Has Closed

The Verizon Wireless Store next to the Post Office in Bedford Marketplace has closed. The store was run by Zcom Wireless which had operated about 120 stores. It appears that all the Zcom wireless stores have closed including the one in Lexington. Back in December, The New York Post reported Zcom Wireless had sued Verizon for $1 Billion dollars alleging fraud. Verizon responded by filing a suit to terminate Zcom's license to sell any Verizon products. It's likely that Verizon was successful and that's why the Zcom stores have been shut down.
