Reminds me of the water in concord. This is just going to take business from Westford and send itRead Moreto the surrounding towns. This will do nothing to curb cigarette smoking.

Thank you, Don, I emailed you my question.
Don Siriani April 15, 2014 at 01:26 AM
Cori - I sent you an email a short while ago. In short, I do have a plan for 40B and you now haveRead Moret he details. I didn't realize that you are a candidate for office yourself until after I emailed you. Cheers-

FYI: So far, no comment from either Olsen or the WEA.
Hans Moleman April 12, 2014 at 08:34 AM
Ask Olsen about withholding "exemplary rating" for 2 years so Westford has zero exemplary Read Moreteachers but sure as heck unsatisfactory and needs improvement rating being doled out!

Rashida, Thank you very much for your support. You and your family have been involved in so manyRead Morei mportant projects to make Westford a great place to live. Your support means a lot.

I don't have your exact answer, but since there were no responses, I can suggest that I recall inRead Moreth e past that George Fletcher had done something similar for the Boy Scouts I think with his tractor. He was or is the custodian of the property. Congratulations and many happy returns.

So what do people think... should this flag replace the POW/MIA flag on the Town Common on EarthRead MoreDay ? Oh yeah, also EVERYDAY at the Crisafulli School? It cannot replace the American flag at the school, United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1, Section 6g says the US flag is to be flown at every school. I have yet to find the copyright document of the flag. United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1, Section 8i says "Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown."

Peeing behind the occasional tree on a long trip or when camping "away from thing things ofRead Moreman " is permissible...I get it. Nature calls me a lot. I don't figure it's good manners to "make water" where others are going to be... People who have dogs they treat like spoiled children and do not clean up after is very rude....being that many dogs yield a very large amount of scat, I cannot see how leaving behind large steaming dog turds is ANY different than pulling a diaper off your child and leaving it on a park bench or sidewalk for someone else to "deal" with. It says plenty about people too inconsiderate, self-entitled, and ill-bred to clean up after their furry friends. Your dog; your mess. (BTW before the haters start, I am fond of dogs and cats and other critters in general...my contempt is for the sub-humans that believe it is acceptable to behave like some sort of sick Bieber/Kardashian slime bag hybrid jerkface.) To Leavers of dog poo: You are NOT special snowflakes, and neither are your beasts...Next time we see you allowing your dog to crap all over city areas, we will carefully bag it up and return it to you IN or ON your overpriced luxury pimp/sleeze car. You are welcome.

You know this problem is pretty easily solved by sitting near the "Poo area" and takingRead Morepi ctures of people letting their dogs doo this... (see what I did there? Doo? HAHAHAHHAAAA.) People do not like to be held accountable...Shame them and name them.
WestfordMom March 12, 2014 at 03:47 PM
We frequently walk our dog on the Emmet Conservation Land starting at the trailhead at the end ofRead MoreT exas Road. The trail is COVERED with dog poop, very disgusting. Since you can get an general sense of the size of the dog based on the size of their poo, there are lots of small dog owners who fail to pick up after their pet. I guess many people in this area feel they are "above" having to do what is right.

Steven Sadowski March 03, 2014 at 09:14 AM
B&D: The town's website is an excellent source of material for local issues regarding theRead Moreprojec ts you mention as well as future projects in the pipeline. Going to meetings is tough as they tend to be 5-8 p.m. on work nights, but all the minutes are recorded and you can email people on those committees (the chairmen at least) and everyone's phone number is listed so there's that avenue if you want to voice your comments or concerns.
Tony Schinella (Editor) March 03, 2014 at 09:25 AM
Thanks for the comments. First, @Bonnie, I'm sorry about the problems with the blank screen. If you Read Moreemail me with a link on which post you had a problem accessing, I'd be happy to get someone to look into that for you to see what the problem was/is. As far as story ideas, news tips, and other things, people can reach me directly at tony.schinella-at-patch.com and I'll do my best to get to them. As far as the Market Basket project in Littleton goes, this isn't something I would write about even though it's right next door. I did a Google search for you though and here's the press statement from the construction company that landed the job: http://torphyconstruction.createsend.com/t/ViewEmailArchive/t/1E7EDE26B01EAD9E/C67FD2F38AC4859C/

Keep in mind that NFL has a personal thing with Rochon. That is fine NFL (as stated before we allRead Moreh ave our thing...) but lets be honest about that. Do you have any clue as to how many people in the work force today do not like their boss. Typically in these cases they find another job or live with it. There are always two sides to any story. When the union bandwagon starts down a hill it is hard to stop..

ALICE training from what I hear, teach kids to barricade doors, jump from windows, and disarmRead Moreshoote r in the event of an armed intruder rather than passively lockdown and wait. Approved by school committee for WPS. Allows staff to make their own decisions rather than follow policy in danger situations

A.L.i.C.E. stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.
