Local lawyer committed to supporting work of the Red Cross

0
Shrewsbury – According to Jeffrey E. Swaim, a member of the American Red Cross of Central Massachusetts Board of Directors, between July 2015 and April, the Red Cross responded to home fires affecting 174 central Massachusetts families. He said it also trained 9,901 area residents in preparedness and health and safety classes. But these are just some of the services that fuel the Shrewsbury resident’s dedication to the nonprofit. A partner at the Mirick O’Connell law firm and a single dad to three children, he’s serving as a board member for the third year in a three-year term. But his admiration for the Red Cross developed years ago.

Burns Bridge on schedule with minimal impact so far to businesses

0
Shrewsbury – As the new year approaches, the Lakeway Business District Association (LBDA) is looking forward to 2013 with an optimistic but cautious eye. That is because, on top of normal economic concerns, there is also one large project in their midst – replacing the bridge that connects Shrewsbury to Worcester via Route 9. Taking down the existing Kenneth F. Burns Bridge and replacing it with a new one is a massive and expensive undertaking. But it must be done, as the current bridge, which spans Lake Quinsigamond, is nearly 100 years old. Although the public is not in any danger now, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) stresses, the bridge is not structurally sound enough to meet the demands of future generations. A proposal for a replacement was approved in 2008 as part of the Patrick-Murray administration's Accelerated Bridge Program. Taking down the existing Kenneth F.
