Well, that’s embarrassing. In my editorial last week I blamed the Senate for holding up the Sunshine Act, which would make Daylight Saving Time permanent. It’s the House. Alas, that’s what happens when it gets late and I trust my memory instead of Google.
Thank you to the reader who called to let me know.
Well, the big storm still hasn’t developed for us this week, at least not yet. We go to print on Tuesday nights, so there’s still a chance you’ll see snow before you see this paper, but…it doesn’t look good. We are getting mostly rain. However, as much as I like a good white blanket on the landscape, when I see what happened just an hour or so west and north of us, I feel lucky. Losing power on a Tuesday for more than an hour or so means the paper will be late.
Beyond that, though, this storm really walloped our fellow Bay Staters. A barn in Dracut collapsed, killing some animals, tens of thousands have no power, and Colrain got a whopping 36 inches of snow, and it was still falling at press time.
Wow…March can be an a$$hole in New England.
We have some meeting coverage in here. A little more on the Select Board meeting from last week on page 3. And a budget update on page 17. Yeah, we still have a deficit….I’d gladly pay you on Tuesday for a hamburger today…hee hee. Except, it’s not so funny. Our taxpayer dollars are not stretching far enough.
Acushnet’s looking for a new tanker truck. The one they have is 37 years old. Might be time, huh? See page 13 for that.
We also have a couple of candidate statements on page 12. Hopefully, we’ll have Planning candidates next week.
