You Recognize These Kids?
These lovely kids have been ringing my bell and running for quite some time now. Unfortunately I’m the victim of a vicious rape and having someone ring my bell sends shockwaves of terror through me and nightmares for days. They live somewhere down by FL Roberts. Thank you.

Need Reliable Carpenter
Hi, Everyone~
I hope you each are well, and feeling well, too.

I am seeking recommendations and contact info for anyone you would trust to do good carpentry -- a small job repairing or replacing a couple of porch stairs in Greenfield, which needs to be done ASAP; and after that, several small and larger jobs in Greenfield and in the Montague Center area that could happen anytime this summer or fall.

Need someone reliable! Affordability will help too, but I will be grateful to speak with anyone that someone on this list recommends.

Thanks so much for any leads!

Experienced Gardener Here For The Summer
5 years of experience gardening on Martha's Vineyard's most beautiful flower gardens. I am trained to have a sharp eye, which enables me to keep flower gardens pristine, if that is your desired look. However, I love to see the flower gardens fill up, giving it a more natural, wild look and would love to assist you in achieving that look if that is more what you are looking for. Furthermore, I also have experience in vegetable and herb gardens. Any other landscaping maintenance such as planting, mulching, fertilizing, deadheading, watering, and any other gardening requests are all things I am willing to help with.
Weather you need help for a day or for the full summer, contact me and we can discuss your gardening needs, scheduling, pricing, and any other concerns.

Thank you

Driveway Scrapedown Gravel Leveling
Winter plowing has left my small parking area ringed with mounds of gravel & dead leaves.

I'm looking for someone who has the right kind of blade on your truck or landscaping equipment to pull the mounds back across the ground and modestly level the surface.

It doesn't matter that leaves will be left mixed with the stones; they will decay & disappear over time.

Turners Falls Road, about 1/2 mile north of Montague Center.

Thanks!

I need a non-smoker, who also is willing to use low-odor cleaning products, and no air freshener. Someone patient enough to scrub out every crack, and clean the carpet & upholstery twice if needed, to get the interior as close to brand-new as possible.

Simple stuff: hemming, repairing ripped seams, patching holes. Someone who can darn holes in sweaters is a plus--but not essential.

Looking For Real Estate Lawyer
I'm considering doing (what I think is) a simple real estate transaction: namely, selling a strip of my land to an abutter. I'm assuming that it's always a good idea to have a lawyer, but I'd like to avoid paying an arm and a leg if possible. I will be working with a land surveyor to prepare an ANR plan and site description, and I can file whatever is necessary at the registry, so (again, I think) this would just be a case of preparing documents that seem like they should be straightforward.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated -- feel free to email me privately if you like.

Handy Man Needed Jump Into Project This Week
My contractor/friend has a helper who's 23-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident this week.

A unimaginable tragedy for him and his family. Obviously he is unable to continue working right now.

That means my contractor/friend could use an extra hand at my house in Millers Falls for the next 2 maybe -- 3 days.

Mostly installing trim and thresholds -- but if you have carpentry skills and can help build two linen closets that would be a big plus.

We're on a deadline to finish the house for tenants so even if you just have 3 hours a day that would still be a huge help.

Thank you in advance for my referrals. And cherish every day.

Valerie

p.s. The notice here says not to put in your email address so I guess I need you to give me your phone number and hourly rate and I will keep checking back here for any replies.

Seeking Scrap Metal Dealer
Anyone can take metal to WTE in Turners. They have a pile you can throw stuff if it is not enough to get weighted and paid.

Hi All,

Does anyone have contact info for the fellow who collects and deals in scrap metal? I've got some I'm hoping he'll be interested in.

Thanks!

Seeking Electrician For Small(?) Job
Electrician showed up today, problem solved. Looks like Comcast tech _could_ have handled it (it didn't actually require running a new line from the street), but didn't take the time to investigate. OTOH, the line from the street is old wire, so we're having a new one pulled just in case.

Thanks to everyone for their help on this!

John -- we're trying to coordinate the hordes, but you know how it goes with contractors! :-) As for broadband, we're still using DSL -- Comcast is wooing us mightily, but I'm still leery of putting all of our eggs in one basket . . . .

Concerning Mike N's electrical opportunity: given the responses, I can imagine four or five electricians descending simultaneously on Millers Falls and overwhelming a defenseless power-line. I wonder if they do broadband on the side ...?

Mark2 - Thanks! Actually, Tom Wyman is the first person I called -- I'm right around the corner from him, so I thought it might be an easy gig for him -- but he never called back. :-(

hubert252 & john h - Thanks also. I ended up getting another lead from someone else, who has promised to come over on Monday and take a look. Keeping my fingers crossed . . . .

We've discovered that we need to replace the cable TV cable that runs in a pipe from the street into our basement. The electric service (and phone?) also run through the same pipe. The Comcast tech recommended that we find an electrician; I have called a couple of local ones, but so far no response. If you know of someone, or if you're an electrician looking for work, we'd appreciate hearing from you. Private email replies are just fine. Thanks very much!

Can You Recommend Well-water Testing Lab?
I don't know where that question mark came from, it is definitely Environmental Labs.

Can You Recommend Well-water Testing Lab?
I have used the lab off of French King Highway in Greenfield.
Environmental Labs ?
Water Testing Service
5 Adams Rd, Greenfield, MA 01301
(413) 774-4757

You can pick up a kit 24/7 and drop it off as well. There are kits for various levels of testing and it explains how much it costs and how to do it.
If the water is seriously bad, they call you, otherwise the results come in the mail.
It can cost as little as $40 and sometimes they have an ad with a coupon for only $25.

Can You Recommend Well-water Testing Lab?
Hey Montagueans,

We get our water from a private well and want to test the water for...things that you test water for. It hasn't been tested in several years (though I think it's supposed to be tested yearly to make sure it doesn't have specific bacteria).

Mass DEP has a page with certified labs, but there are a million of them. Any suggestions for who to use?

Also -- I'm researching which analytes to ask them to test for using MA.gov pages. If you have any insight there, I'd appreciate that, too. You can test for about a million different things.

thanks!
Nico

Looking for a person with pick-up truck to help me load, haul, & unload two loads of brush (maybe 3) about one mile to bonfire site. About 1-1/2 hours work total.

Needs to happen today (Friday) afternoon or evening, Saturday afternoon, or Sunday afternoon.

Sooner is better!

Would prefer to pay no more than $25 an hour for truck + helper.

Need Someone Bring Dog Springfield For Spaying.
Hi Liz, Thank you for the response. I had to cancel. Rescheduled for May 17th. Still need transport and a pet carrier for that date.. I believe if you email me, it will remain private. Hope to hear from you. Also, I am looking for someone as a backup who would take my pug if the woman who wants her, says her landlord won't let her have her.
