    Posted 08/21/2011 03:21:11 EDT

    Let me give you a personal example of the "No Child Left Behind" rules at work. I received my BS in ED from Brigewater State College (now University). Before I retired ten years ago, I worked for twen more »

  • Comment on: 'Beverly Beckham: Hey, GQ, mocking the disabled not fashionable'

    Posted 08/02/2011 01:49:41 EDT

    If GQ really has a conscience, it will select a number of young men with Down Syndrom, give them complete makeovers, and then photograph them for a future issue. Just because people are disabled, or d more »

    Posted 08/02/2011 01:35:50 EDT

    Reading this I have to wonder, where in 'ell is the Union here? Are the teachers in South Hadley even allowed to have union representation? A union representative should have been there in Deb Caldier more »

    Posted 08/01/2011 04:41:28 EDT

    I don't have $11K worth of jewelry, but I make damned sure what I have is in my carry-on luggage with me, and under my control, on the plane. How stupid to pack it in checked luggage! more »

  • Comment on: Extraterrestrials: N.H., phone home - The Boston Globe

    Posted 08/01/2011 03:38:46 EDT

    I always find references to Betty and Barney Hill annoying. I worked with Betty Hill, briefly, at the N.H. Dept. of Welfare, in Portsmouth, NH, in 1975-1976. Betty was NOT an uneducated woman. She hel more »

  • Comment on: 'In Norwood, an old school on the hill makes way for a new one'

    Posted 07/30/2011 02:13:28 EDT

    Although I grew up in and graduated from rival Walpole, I have fond memories of Norwood High School. It was there that I took my PSATs and SATs. But that was about fifty years ago! more »

  • Comment on: 'Search widens for missing N.H. girl'

    Posted 07/30/2011 01:39:02 EDT

    Forty years ago, when I lived in Northern NH, there was a LOT of smuggling going on in the area from which Celina Cass is missing, as it was relatively easy to go through the woods across the border. more »

    Posted 07/19/2011 03:49:57 EDT

    I remember this fire house from the early fifties, when my best friend lived in Oak Square. So glad to know it's history, find out that it is still in use, and has been restored. Way to go! more »

  • Comment on: 'Sept. 21 marks New England hurricane anniversary'

    Posted 09/22/2010 12:46:52 EDT

    I grew up with stories of the 1938 Hurricane. It was my mother's 23rd birthday, and she was dating the man who became her husband and my father. He canceled their date because of the storm and she was more »

    I aadore chocolate, and I love Hazelnuts. However, while in Europe in 1972, I was introduced to Nutella on toast, at breakfast in Germany. OMG! It was gawd-awful sweet!!! My stomach was upset for the more »

  • Comment on: 'No banner'

    Posted 06/18/2010 04:48:55 EDT

    I still love the CELTICS! They did a fantastic job, but it hurts horribly to blow a thirteen point lead, and come up four short at the final buzzer. However, thanks to a fantastic team for a fantastic more »

  • Comment on: 'A bruising victory and a shot at banner 18'

    Posted 05/29/2010 04:20:13 EDT

    As a native Bostonian, I have always been extremely proud that the Celtics are exactly one day older than I am. The legal paperwork creating the Celtics was signed on June 6, 1946. As a child who didn more »

  • Comment on: 'Granite State lacks clear icon, survey finds'

    Posted 05/08/2010 02:06:33 EDT

    I always thought, and I lived there for six years and still own a historic home there, that the NH "icon" was the Old Man of the Mountain. Just look at NH highway signs, license plates, etc. He's ever more »

    Posted 05/03/2010 05:51:11 EDT

    I spent my thirteenth birthday in the Joslin Clinic in Boston. In fact I shared my birthday with Dr. Elliot Joslin for whom the clinic is named. That was in June 1959. My life expectancy was 25 years more »

    Rebecca Riley was supposedly diagnosed around age two with Bi-Polar Disorder, and or ADD? I spent thirty years in education, twenty of them in Special Education. I have yet to see a two year old, or e more »

  • Comment on: 'Tip leads owner to missing tortoise'

    Posted 04/24/2010 11:18:18 EDT

    Most of the species of Tortoises of which I know require a hot, dry climate. What is this tortoise doing in a (probably) unheated barn in Vermont? Maybe the local Humane Society should look into that more »

    Posted 04/24/2010 11:02:21 EDT

    In the 1950s, my best friend, Mary Beth Haley, lived in Oak Square. We lived on Com.Ave. in Brighton, before moving to Walpole. I loved visiting Oak Square. We could walk to OLP School, at which Mary more »

    Posted 12/23/2009 03:15:04 EST

    Maybe all those "guardian angels" who aided Maria and her children this Christmas could each pledge a small monthly donation for her when the funds from state assistance run out. A lot of people, each more »

    Posted 12/12/2009 03:31:04 EST

    I have been a Type I Diabetic for over fifty years. When I was diagnosed in June 1959, the life expectancy for a Type I Diabetic was twenty-five years after diagnosis. Well, I've lived that twice over more »

    Posted 12/07/2009 10:13:03 EST

    It brings back chilling memories of the Station Fire in West Warwick, Rhode Island; and the Coconut Grove fire in Boston, in the early nineteen forties. As I recall, "decorative ceilings" such as the more »

    Posted 11/24/2009 04:22:56 EST

    As a native Bostonian who lived in Sunnyvale for 27 years, I can say, weather, weather! My husband and I are both retired, and neither one of us worked in "high tech." (I was an educato more »
