Beachgoers respite at Herring Cove in Provincetown (Source: Flickr/Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism/William DeSousa-Mauk)

We have been shopping at Demoulas in Burlington for years and were thrilled when they opened theRead More store in Tilton, NH so we could stock our summer home as well. ALWAYS good and cheerful service with employees strolling the aisles to serve customers and checking for items not on the shelves. Even at busy times there are workers at the registers shifting customers into shorter lines and apologies from the cashiers for any delays in checking out. MOST IMPORTANT - the produce is FRESH and bountiful. In earlier times we sometimes had to shop elsewhere but the new larger Demoulas stores have GREAT PRODUCE selections. What more could you want? Good Luck to all the employees during this difficult time. IF they remain faithful to Demoulas they will be rewarded. H. Chmela, Lexington, MA

Ya John you tell um! While their at it, no kites either! Or footballs or frisbee's or children underRead More age 10! No eating food either because someone might be allergic nearby! No swimming either, someone might get splashed!

We all might be safer and happier if they close the beach's all together!! Sounds to me like JohnRead More should just stay in his tub at home. Remember to close the door.

John, the FAA has not made any rulings yet on these remote controlled toys. As long as they don't goRead More above 400 ft agl you can pretty much fly them anywhere legally. This "law" will get thrown out when the first ticket is brought to court. You don't want kids toys on the beach? Then you better stay away from the beach. Last time I was at a beach there were plenty of kids toys everywhere. They don't want cameras in the air, too bad, you have zero expectation of privacy on a public beach. If you are worried about the crappy pictures somebody might take of you with the $400 toy in the air, how about the pictures somebody could take walking past you with a cell phone or with a $300 Nikon with the mega zoom lens?

Humanity has no room for vile scum like this young man. Every Massachusetts resident with a heartRead More and a conscience should be ashamed that they allow this state to coddle its most heinous criminals. He should be unceremoniously executed, but here the best we can hope for is some prison justice.

Apparently goats don't react to poison ivy. If they do this is a very bad idea.
Bryant Hopkins July 24, 2014 at 10:06 am
Goats LOVE poison ivy! They chew the stuff all day long, then later on leave "fertilizer"Read More behind so that more desirable plants can grow where the poison ivy grew. It is great for the goats and for those of us (roughly 1 in 7 people) who are extra sensitive to the "leaves of three". Just don't pet goats working over a poison ivy patch, as the urushiol oils (the "poison" in poison ivy) that come in contact with the goats will not harm the goats but will get onto whomever comes in contact with the goats. Sadly, poison ivy is one plant that will benefit from climate change in the coming years, so here one issue that tree huggers and climate change deniers who hate poison ivy can agree upon - WE NEED MORE GOATS!

Chelmsford should rent some goats to take care of invasive plants growing up the telephone poles andRead More around the fire hydrants. Concord has used goats very successfully. There is a lot of inch by inch plants in Chelmsford. Chop the plant close to roots and pour a couple drops of vinegar. Pull down the rest of vine.

Be wary. Some of these places give to inmates. The reason I took myself off the donors list.
SPH July 24, 2014 at 08:54 pm
lol...I was wondering same thing, Keith Lucy; why would anyone care who gets their blood, as long asRead More they NEED it. Here's one for you on-the-fencers; a veteran nurse once told me that one pint of blood can service up to FIVE (5) premature babies. That should be enough fodder to push you into a Red Cross blood drive.
David July 24, 2014 at 09:05 pm
The point...Keith and sph...is that this patch crap posts the same stuff regional. RI gets its bloodRead More from the RI Blood Center and when Red Cross swoops in the blood goes anywhere. RI ends up with shortages and the needs here get tight. I don't care who gets the blood and encourage any able bodied person to donate. That was an FYI for anyone from RI reading this post that may think that they are helping in RI when they are not. And yes...when Mass calls for blood from the RI Blood Center and they are able to they send it. Same goes for when people donate after a tragedy thinking they are directly helping. They are not. A lot of the blood ends up going bad because they get too much. If called they will always ask you to donate year round and avoid the urge to 'help' during a tragedy. Just call and ask and they will tell you that...ANY blood center.

We can expect that our ranking will go down a little thanks to our cowardly leaders voting cutRead More funding for charter schools.

MoonBeamWatcher July 19, 2014 at 12:41 pm
Where was the Great and General Court on this? Took a "NO ACTION VOTE" without roll-callRead More so fingers couldn't be pointed. MAJORITY are Democrats, ehough for me! Then we have that Oxmorn of a group: ACLU! Nothing from them! To think that a Judge would make a Medical Choice favoring one hospital over another without a independent medical review proves that Judicial Activism rains in MA and that Harvard University trumps all in Massachusetts! Today we have Harvard Professor and MAUS Sen. Warren speaking about OUTRAGEOUS interest charged on school loans while SAYING NOTHING ABOUT THE TAX FREE UNIVERSITIES TUITION!

Whoooops . . . and the MA AG was tongue-tied as well but did bring criminal charges against theRead More father who beat the snot out of his sons molester!

Our Governor, his DCF Dept, and Democratically controlled state legislature failed our most needy ofRead More our population in this case. They all should be ashamed of themselves including Rep.

"Justina's Law." We can understand why Professor Warren wasn't a co-signer but the ACLURead More and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation!? On June 26, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) introduced House Resolution 4989, nicknamed "Justina's Law." The bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Reps. Karen Bass (D-CA), Tom Marino (R-PA), and Jim McDermott (D-WA) seeks to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used for medical and psychological experimentation on wards of any state. "Justina's Law" is a federal legislative response to the kidnapping, imprisonment, and forced psychological treatments of Connecticut teenager Justina Pelletier. The "behavior modification" she was forced to endure at the hands of Boston Children's Hospital and the state of Massachusetts for more than a year led to a serious decline in her health and wellbeing.

This made morning radio too...to set the record straight, this "gas" (hydrogen sulfide) isRead More produced in microscopic amounts inside of cells after a precursor drug is used on the cells. This has been shown previously to help cells fight stress-related death; the advance here is that the drug is linked to a fat for better delivery. No sniffing needed.
