Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

Police seek help in burglary case

STURBRIDGE — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man sought in connection with a burglary at a Sturbridge home July 11. Police said the man is believed to be in the Worcester area and has associated with James Grzembski, who was arrested by Worcester police on a warrant pertaining to the burglary. Mr. Grzembski was living at 14 Oread St., fifth floor, in Worcester, when he was arrested.

Sturbridge police asked anyone with information to call Detective Mark Saloio at (508) 347-2525, ext 112."

OK, Selectmen, you know your duty, find this guy!! And, you guys in the DPW, get a loader and scour the backyards for evidence. Board of Health, swab everything for DNA. We'll need the Rec Department, too. Once the crook is captured, they can tie him up with a tether ball cord. Now, fan out!!

Oh, and you police people, try to look busy, we got it covered.


  1. Exactly this shows how ridiculous it was for Tom Creamer to go to the board of selectmen to ask them to investigate an alleged incident. I doubt he will ask them to investigate this burglary.

  2. TC posted a statement on his site about that is so evasive, and stupid. he took pieces of comment here, and then commented on each one, and when someone asked about the fireworks at the other ponds in town referring to why he wasn't going to do something like he wants to do with Walker pOnd, this is what he wrote, "...but what about the other fireworks that goes on on Leadmine, Cedar, S Pond, in backyards, at bbqs? (the commenter said, and TC said this, "(I love the logic here, hey everyone else is doing it, why shouldn't we. That will really set a good example for our children. Thus, when our children come home drunk or high on drugs, or simply refuse to go to school and tell us that, hey kids everywhere are doing it, why pick on me, we should have no problem accepting that answer.) " WTF?? He is so fragmented and off the wall!!!! Just his writing alone needs to be on medication. What the heck does his answer have to do with the original question??!! come on, tc, answer the stupid question! Why are you chasing the wlaker pond crowd when the big alum people did it too?? got too many friends on that part of town?

  3. He does that so well huh? Attemps to give an answer but misses the original question! By the way, What friends?
