It’s Moby-Dick week! What a cool thing that is. We caught up with a couple of Fairhaven residents at the annual marathon reading of the whale of a tale (yeah…I went there, it’s late okay?). See page 12 for that.
I usually go late at night and catch people sleeping in the corners. This year I went earlier and I was able to catch Culture*Park performing chapter 40, knife fight and all.
We have some meeting coverage this week, too. See page 4 for the Select Board meeting.
Paul Heroux was sworn in as Bristol County Sheriff. Finally. Only waited 25 years for it to happen (see page 6). Let’s hope we will, at the very least, not be a national embarrassment anymore.
This weekend is Martin Luther King Jr. day. See page 3 for a program commemorating him. And see page 19 for our own local Black History Trail.
Acushnet is having a meeting to talk about the Department of Environmental Protection’s proposed Title 5 regulations, which is to say: septic systems. If they have their way, there’s a possibility that individual homeowners with septic systems will be forced to replace or upgrade their systems, even if they are new.
The comment period has been extended (see page 17), and there are a couple of virtual meetings and webinars coming up. Meanwhile, in Acushnet this week, 1/12, there is an open meeting for residents to give their opinions to the Selectboard and get their questions answered (see page 16). The meeting is at 6 p.m. at the Senior Center in Acushnet.
This is going to be a battle for all the towns, so get informed
There’s other stuff in here of course. As you look through, be sure to tell our advertisers you saw their ads in the Neighb News. And if you frequent a place that does not advertise with us, give ‘em a copy and maybe they will!
Until next week then… see ya,
Glory to Ukraine!
Glory to the Heroes!
