If you are bringing material to the bonfire pile, please do not drive onto the ballfield. Tire ruts create a hazard for players in our Adult Softball League........thank you.

roundup
Several towns on Cape Cod have negotiated with the utilites to stop using round up under powerlines for the rest of this year and possibly into 2012 because of concerns about health risks.

roundup on plains
Roundup is a product manufactured by Monsanto, a company that has produced many useful products over the years but I have issues with several of these products. A quick, cursory search of the web has yielded lots of results of the benefits and cons of using Roundup. I personally would never use it on my property because we have well water and the last thing I want is for a product like Roundup to be seeping into the aquifer. I don't have any professional, scientific studies at-hand to support my decision however.

Here's an interesting article: http://motherjones.c...erbicide-soil-damage

And another: http://www.huffingto...efects_n_883578.html

Best,
Jonathan

Round-Up is a common around the yard defoliant spray that YOU can get at the local hardware store in Turners Falls [Aubonschon]---

roundup on plains
It is legal and it is not similar to Agent Orange. Not at all.

roundup on plains
I was walking my dogs along the powerlines at the plains today and discovered that the utility company is spraying roundup ( I think this is similar to agent orange ) under the powerlines. I am not sure if it is legal for them to do so.

SAWMILL RIVER 10K RUN
There were 108 finishers, I think. Last year, it was about 10 degrees and windy, while this year was probably 35 with no wind at all.

For the record, I saw no one make use of the porta-potties.

Patrick, do you know how many people showed up? I think the record was 220, though last year only about 87 showed up.

Mass Wildlife website has a listing and maps of the state reservations. The one for the plains is a topo and shows the roads.. Hope this gives you a starting point. Not sure where locally you can get topo maps.

I don't have a copy in my archives, but I believe the 1936 survey of the US Geodetic maps did have all those roads in the largest pitch pine forest and blueberry haven, not to mention the turtles..., many of which I travelled on maybe 50 years ago. You can go on line and download those and other maps.
