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...

...seems to be working so far

Second Update Regarding "The Question"

This afternoon I received the second response to the question I posted to the candidates for selectman. As I mentioned in that first post, I will wait 24 hours before posting the responses in order to give the last two candidates a chance to respond, and then I will post the two responses I have, and not post any other submissions.

Fair is fair. The whole idea is to obtain an "uncanned" response without each of the candidates "looking over " their opponents shoulder.

I really believe that the answers to the question will give more insight to just how the candidates think. Speeches, and signs, and campaign literature only tell us what they want us to know. Which, is perfectly acceptable, otherwise it would not be politics.

'til tomorrow.
