Flashback Friday

Northborough - With so much talk over the last month or so about the dangers of mosquitoes, it's interesting to see how generations before us handled the problem. In this photo, members of the Northborough Department of Public Works (circa 1915) are spraying the town's trees. As the book, Images of America – Northborough – (in which this photo appears), indicates, the dangers of long-term pesticide use were not yet known.

Westborough officials appeal to dog owners to clean –up at park

Westborough - The town's Veterans Freedom Park, with its 22-acres off of West Main Street, and which abuts the Mill Pond, has become a favorite recreational destination for many residents, including those who enjoy walking their dogs. But a few owners, who don's pick up after their pets, are ruining the experience for everyone, the Westborough Board of Selectmen said at its April 10 meeting. But rather than employ strict measures to penalize owners or restrict the park's usage, Town Manager Jim Malloy suggested using another way – "emotionally intelligent signage."
