Like Humpty Dumpty, Gooch's Corner Gazebo Back Together Again

by Bobby Blair
April 25, 2018

It didn't take all the king's horses and all the king's men, but rather a few able-bodied men, Saturday morning, to put the roof panels back on the gazebo at Gooch's corner. The gazebo, donated by the Downtown Marigold Project a number of years ago, has fallen apart once before from heavy snow. Greg Lewis, upon receiving a donation request from Holliston in Bloom, decided instead of a monetary donation his skills as a carpenter would be better served in fixing the gazebo which in its disrepair was an eyesore.

Above, Dave Boudreau, assists Lewis, which will make Holliston in Bloom member Bea Hait a happy camper. Hait, a Queens resident, has adopted the plantings at Gooch's Corner during the growing season.

Thank you Gegg Lewis for putting Holliston's Humpty Dumpty back together again.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
