Everybody concerned citizen could get on FB or a Google or Yahoo group and be alerted immediately. (Jan 20, 2011 | post #38)
It won't halt debate or appearances,howeve r informal they may be,it'll serve to propagate in fact. Our second ammendment rights will not falter in anyway on a national level,though AZ may take a step back. Maybe it's time for public officials to be required,with legislation,to protect constituents by protecting themselves with at least one or more trained military personnel avec firearms.

I'm confident it'll continue,due to citizen watchdogs freely giving of their time and effort to protect their community...and resulting legislation like the "Unitil Bill". (Jan 19, 2011 | post #13)
The trucks appear unmarked because Unitil requests assistance from other IOUs,they are actually marked if one looks close enough.A valid point may be Unitil still refuses to acknowledge the need for adequate response materials.This is New England and we're going to experience many,many severe weather occurences.I think, and I could be very wrong,that in the long run purchasing rather than borrowing (equip & labor resources) may be more cost effective.The fact that the vehicles are not left unmanned should (IMHO) be due to the universal hatred of this company,though I think upper management may want laborers to also be present for potential photo-ops.

They must revive the nation's indomitable strengths weakened by the sloth of political self-interest and greed. I love this line,though to be accurate,I believe it might read "We" and not "They" for it is our greed,mine and yours.First don't we need to be the change that we'd like for all?

Sheesh,if I had 80 millions,I might do my best to give it away...as quickly as possible. Though parting shots of those attempting a one-party rule maybe we are witnessing? (Nov 29, 2010 | post #6)
I firmly believe without Dean's leadership holding this ship together,Lemon would've sunk to the level of the Burg long ago. I'm not disagreeing or agreeing with any of you,though if you really want change and you find yourself quieted by the election process and find your vote and first amendment rights to be an insufficient voice,than put your money where your mouth is and run for office!

Let's call it like it is,this bill will essentially socialize utilities the same way we've socialized health care here in The Commonwealth.Are we afraid of a little socialism?Does the current monopoly work better for everyone and not just an elite few?Are we decades behind other nations in how we utilize our gov't to care for each other?Will our partisan bickering leave US a third world nation in the not too distant future?Will we continue to look back to a time that is not now,when we lead the world in EVERYTHING?Only for a time that is,in which we fail our birthright to become a legislative playland for the top one percent of the world's economy?...really? What does it take to wake a sleeping giant? (There be dragons Cathy!once upon a time subtle, corporate dragons,that grow evermore so bold during the slumber of the rest of us.) The truth,it seems,is that it may require only one. (Mar 19, 2010 | post #33)
If everyone in our commonwealth subjected to unitil were to sign the petition,this would still not be enough signatures to put a question on any ballot,maybe it might be time to branch out further with hard copy petitions,that may attract the attention of local media,for residents in eastern and western MA to join in our cause.However,as is,the petition sends a strong message to our legislature in support of municipal choice.Locally,I believe our reps and Senators have acted accordingly in response to the will of the people,their constituency,on this popular issue.A seemingly not to difficult maneuver on their part.Reps outside of our area hold this legislation up,specifically Finegold and Morrissey,who remain in the pocket of I.O.U.s far more monetarily influential than unitil,nstar.They, conveniently, chair and co-chair the committee DiNatale and Benson serve on.Will it take an ice storm in Quincy to move their constituency to demand the same?

So...about making mistakes... http://www.bbb.org /central-western-m assachusetts/busin ess-reviews/electr ic-companies/uniti l-fitchburg-gas-an d-electric-light-i n-fitchburg-ma-100 503 Unitil's rating has diminished significantly actually,to a D-! It is not a BBB accredited business however. Very interesting to see only 6 complaints for Unitil in the last 36 months...in any case,I'd give CBI another season to improve,it's a small business and in any business there's always an element of human and mechanical error.Big opportunity here for Shawn to turn negative attention into positive,though I'd be careful of fanning the flames. (Jan 26, 2010 | post #23)
Unitil's rating has not been diminished by the BBB,actually I think it may have improved.So much for credibility... We all make mistakes and it seems Shawn is eager to correct his, so as to not allow it to become his company's behavior.I bet his reputation improves.The Sentinel's doing what it can to serve and sell papers in a badly hurting industry.The folks there may be overworked and underpaid I'm afraid.Though you have to admit you all love it (or love to hate it)as much as I do or you wouldn't be reading this!

There are several used car dealerships in Ashby,one more could only aid the whole lot of 'em and the mechanic shops might see some business to business business.B&Z is a great example of the used car industries growth potential in Ashby.That corner of 119 & 31 is attractive,especia lly outside of the winter months with all the traffic that the state park gets and it's tough to get pizza delivery in some parts of Ashby,several out of town places will deliver,thought there isn't one that covers the entire town.I think a pizza shop,location wise,might work closer to Ashburnham,serving all of Ashby,some of Ashburnham and parts of Southern NH.With Ashby's approx. one thousand households,it could not support a pizza shop alone.If the shop had a unique and outstanding product similar to Espresso's in Fitchburg or Pizza Depot in Pepperell though, I don't think it could fail...maybe a Papa John's franchise?

Rosa's the least of our worries and Flanagan said she gave last year's raise to local charities,I know because I asked her. I know most would be disgusted if they knew half the things that went on in our statehouse. If we knew,more folks might run for office so as to upset incumbents' chances for re-election. Regardless of party,voting in one that may **** up less might help. In NH legislators are paid $1 plus travel expenses. I'd like it if pols would give back more than just their raises,I'd also like a classless society...guess I'll have to settle for giant douches and turd sandwiches... (Jan 25, 2010 | post #16)
