9/11 Deja vu

Sorry this is a tad long and slightly rambling, but I knew acting Select Board Chair Alisa Brewer would allow me pretty much free reign. Had 'His Lordship' been there I would have honed it down to only three minutes.

Amherst Taxpayers underwrite Hadley's very own Tiger Woods in waiting

Fledgling fairway fanatic:
Hadley boy, 9, 'just crazy about golf'

AMHERST - By just about any measure, playing more than 50 rounds of golf in one summer is a noteworthy achievement. For someone who has yet to celebrate his 10th birthday, though, the accomplishment of going through the nine holes and more than 2,300 yards at Cherry Hill Golf Course so often may be all the more remarkable.

A bad trend even in Democratic circles...

Tired of lawsuits over its secret meetings, City Council to look at barring the public from its meetings

The Herald reports that the Boston City Council, which keeps wasting taxpayer money losing court cases over private meetings, will consider asking the state Legislature to exempt it from the state's open-meeting law:

An exemption would mean citizens have no legally guaranteed right to attend council meetings, or even receive meeting minutes.

Larry, it looks like the Town Manager was there that night.

I still say that (a) Alisa Brewer is the peacemaker on the Selectboard and (b) there is a reason why she was left in charge that night.

Somebody, somewhere, decided that you were going to win. The question is who/where....

(a)Alisa and Stephanie are the voices of reason.
(b)it was her turn.
(c)it was about time that they, partially, did the right thing!
