HollistonReporter.com - Everything Holliston

by Paul Saulnier
January 6, 2017

This digital rag is all about informing residents, businesses and anyone else with an interest in Holliston about our daily activities.

Since our first edition streamed out into cyberspace back in May 2008, The Reporter has published over 12,000 articles (this one is number 12,607). More than 600 people have contributed articles on every topic of interest to residents and business owners. "Local Reporting by Local People" is not just a byline. HollistonReporter.com is totally independent of other newspapers, which have, for the most part, stopped competing against us. When was the last time the Holliston Tab showed up at your door or AOL's Holliston Patch appeared on your computer?

We cover the activities of town government, schools, police and fire, local lore, sports, the arts, business activities, local organizations, clubs, coming events and "coming and goings". This is the time of year when activity slows down in Holliston. Winter weather and the post holiday rush results in fewer planned events and less activity (which is why I'm filling the void with this bit of self-aggrandizement).

Holliston is a community of volunteers. The "Volunteer Summit" scheduled for January 19, 2017 (see article  http://www.hollistonreporter.com/article/12585/volunteer-summit-set-for-january.html )will bring together many organizations with the following goals:
- Allow representatives from every group to meet each other. Nothing facilitates cooperation & success like having personal contact.
- Learn the goals, plans, and events for each group. 
- Learn the resources and contributions of each group.
- Bring any questions or issues to the table.

HollistonReporter.com can help these volunteers get the word out about a planned activity, a service offered or a fund raising goal. But we can't be everywhere and cover everything that's happening in Holliston - especially during the Spring and Fall when organizations and clubs are the most active.

Let HollistonReporter.com help you get out the word. Of the 600 people who have published articles many are repeat writers. We will help you put your story together. There is no charge for this service thanks to our advertisers who pay for the cost of doing business. All we ask is that you return the favor and BUY LOCAL.

With an average of 5,000 unique visitors per day to our site HollistonReporter.com will spread the word for you and your organization. If you are doing business in Holliston for Holliston residents, consider advertising with us. Either way, just click on the "Contact us" button in the gray banner and tell us your needs.

Thanks for your continued support.

State House Update-Summer 2017

by Representative Carolyn Dykema

Dear Neighbor, Happy summer! I hope you are making the most of the warm weather and long days here in the 8th Middlesex District. Here in the State House, we have worked to finalize a fiscally stable FY18 state budget, continue to hold hearings for the 4,000+ bills that have been filed this session including major healthcare reforms, and are working to engage stakeholders on critical issues like climate impacts and immigration. This session I am the primary sponsor of 35 bills on issues ranging from veterans' preference in hiring to teen texting and driving. Two of my environmental priorities this session include H.2113, An Act to protect Massachusetts pollinators and H.2115, An Act relative to drought management. More information about all of the bills I've filed can be found on the legislative website. If you have questions about any of this legislation, I'd welcome the chance to discuss them. Input from you is essential to the work I do to represent you at the State House. Please stay in touch. Warmly, Carolyn Dykema
