To the Editor: It’s called a “micro burst” when the sudden storm hit at 8:24 p.m. [July 22] and we lost electricity here. Even the emergency lights didn’t work so I was grateful for my flashlight even though it was flickering. I was safe in my bed just listening and talking with God and letting […]

Letter to editor: Shrewsbury bag ban is anti-business

May 25th, 2016

The Shrewsbury town meeting members who voted with glee for Article 13 to ban traditional plastic bags should be ashamed they were led like lemmings to impose one of the worst anti-business by-laws in the history of the town by progressives with a personal agenda. Next they will seek to ban all plastic bags, plastic water and juice bottles, and once they make the town The People’s Republic of Shrewsbury, like Cambridge and Concord, they’ll likely push for Sanctuary Status.
