Graves Decorated in Record Time

by Bobby Blair
May 26, 2018

Many hands make light work and so it was Thursday night when scores of scouts turned up at St. Mary's and Lake Grove Cemetery to help decorate veterans graves.

Above, Vietnam veteran Richard Finn places a new flag on the Mattscheck family grave.

Above, American Legion Commander Steve Bradford gives the younger set a history lesson on the history of taps.

 

Joe Cebotti plays taps before the old flags are burned in a fitting ceremony. Fire department personnel stood by with an engine truck just in case.

It is heartwarming to see the children getting a taste of history and see how to respect our flag and not set them on fire as a protest against our government.

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?
