Great points Grommit!! This is the time we MUST get our State and Federal lawmakers on board, to be sure all is done properly. The next meeting of the BOS should have all these people there, or their representatives to answer all the residents questions and concerns. View Comment
I for one, as all of you, am not crazy about paying more, but harpoon has it correct. New High School, Fire Station, Police Station, Elementary school and hopefully a new DPW facility. The time to bi.... is not now but at the finance committee meetings where they pick apart the budget line by line. The extra .45 will certainly go to other necessary expenditures in the town.

John: I really feel sorry for you that your childhood was so difficult. When I was 13 we didn't know what minority was, poor people lived in other countries and we gave extra money in the basket for them (what little we had). Women were our moms, our teachers and the Nuns and their was no controlling them, unless you meant your school girl friends, and there was no controlling them either! Thump our chest for a big military..Yea I guess you might be right on that one. Hope all turned out for ya little fella! View Comment
I would somewhat agree that we should be a little more selective on what we litigate. The fact that gypsies did your work in a shoddy manner is your own fault!! You went and hired the cheapest out of towners! You got what you deserved and paid for. View Comment
Firstly Lamp boy I will never trust you! Secondly it is a wonderful thing that the selectman can bring together so many committees and rally whatever voters show up! I remember a citizen petition that was brought up, maybe two town meetings ago, that certain person tried to replace boilers at the schools if I remember correctly. The measure received conservativly about two votes, because that person had their both hands up!! I think I'll go with the Selectman.
I have confidence in this system because its what we have, and it works well. The only thing misplaced is borish rantings. View Comment
