Watch Out World!

by Chris Cain
December 31, 2018

I have set up a Facebook page.  This may not strike everyone as news, but in my world this is a big step (not quite as big as the first step on the moon)!

Since the beginning of the social media movement, Yvette and I have stayed 'off the grid' in this ever-growing space.  We didn't think our lives were noteworthy. We also understand that things posted 'out there' stay out there forever.

This approach to adopting social media was steeped in our family's DNA.  As a teenager, my family was the last to get a color TV.  Dad said he'd wait until all the kinks were worked out in this new technology.  When Apple and Tandy/Radio Shack produced the first desktop computers, I was convinced it was just a passing fad (don't come to me for investment advice).  When we finally did get a family computer, it came in a cowhide box.

Fast forward to 2018.  Now we're responsible for the care and feeding of the Holliston Reporter.  I have come to learn that Facebook is an important pathway onto the Holliston Reporter site. 

So I have created a Facebook page that Yvette and I both can visit.  Since joining the Holliston Reporter, Bobby Blair has been my Facebook mole, keeping us updated on the number of Likes and Comments our news items received.  Thanks to his encouragement, we will now directly view comments and respond as appropriate - assuming our daughter can coach us successfully.

We are not going for a record number of friends or anything else that Facebook might be able to do. We want to use this personal page as another communication tool. We encourage you to contact us via the page with feedback, story ideas, or your offer of time and talent to the Holliston Reporter.  

We're taking our first steps onto the Facebook platform.  Please accept our invitation to communicate with us on a regular basis.  The only bad idea is one that is never shared.

Don't PANIC readers. Holliston Reporter will still be producing new stories on their website every day. The platform is NOT switching to FB. It will just be another way to meet the Cains and get to know them better. We all need to check our news daily - just as we always did - at HollistonReporter.com

Please, please, PLEASE, don't start relying more on facebook. We may be in the minority but there are some of us that refuse to sell out to them. I am, admittedly, less informed about Holliston because of that. I rely on the Holliston Reporter for almost all of my town news!

It would be easier for people to connect with you on Facebook if you included the link in your article

I tried to find you on fb but couldn't

OK! I now need to know how to reach you on Facebook. Not too good with the computer. I do have a facebook account.

Police Log for Week of June 9 - 15, 2019

by Paul Saulnier

Last week's lowlights include a rock party on Washington, a parade of one on Gretchen and one frustrated and creative driver solves the rush hour traffic problem down town (no he didn't shoot out the lights). Officers are taught to place a hand on the car as they approach. Why? Because if in the course of the stop the officer is murdered and the driver takes off, the officer's finger prints on the car will prove that he stopped the car.
