At Bristol TV station, community is one long movie

BRISTOL — Mary Arbuckle found her voice on the side of a Bristol mountain.

In the 1970s, after graduating from Boston University with a degree in philosophy and religion, she moved north to build a cabin in the woods. It wasn’t philosophizing from the dooryard of her new mountain home that changed her life, however — it was a simple gift.

“Someone gave me a camera for my birthday,” Arbuckle said. “When I started exploring with it, it was like a light bulb went off for me.”

BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Department is one step closer to getting a new rec center, next door to property owned by the Bristol Recreation Club.

The town of Bristol on Aug. 20 signed a deal to buy a home on 0.59 acre at 76 West St. for $166,500, the assessed value of the property. The fate of the house there remains unclear.

Voters must approve the purchase at next year’s annual town meeting.

In the long run, the move could save Bristol money by consolidating programs in one location, according to officials.
