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

A Reader Writes

In addition to the comments each post receives, I also get emails.  These emails usually offer more information about a particular situation.  Most always, the writer asks to remain anonymous, but is offering the information to fill in the blanks.  I received one such email this week from a reputable source, and I've posted the email below.  I've also removed any identifying information at the writers request.

I am also very interested in the condition of the fire department and would to suggest to you an interesting piece that was touched on last night but not quantified. The letter that Mr. Creamer referred to from some time ago was from 2007 and outlined the exact issues being addressed here. It was part of an totally ignored exit interview by Jim Malloy and the BOS. They refused to even speak to the person about his concerns and due to the fact that an exit interview is confidential, it was buried. Two week later they were each delivered a letter  ... with most of the same information in it, it became a public document. This was also ignored...
