Starting The Updates
Hey,

I'm gonna go though today and tomorrow and change the layout and styling a bit for the site. If you see something broken or just looking weird, it'll end up being fixed shortly after. We are finally getting to the comments not working too. Hopefully we can get the site back to 100% in the next couple days.

Thanks

Pet Sitting 11/26-11/27
Hi,
This is my first post, so I hope I'm posting to the right place. I am looking for someone to host my small pet dog from Saturday morning, 11/26 to Sunday afternoon, 11/27. He is a very loving, small, people-oriented, Cavachon (King Charles Spaniel/Bichon Frise mix). I will, of course, drop off and pick up, supply meals and treats, and a stipend.
I can be reached at 413-367-6911.
Thanks,
Rob

Looking For Specific Book From B.f. Miner From The Early 1900’s
I am working on an article on former Montague Center, and later, Greenfield resident Benjamin Franklin Miner (often written as B. F. Miner), who wrote a book with formulas and a method he developed for extracting vanilla.
The book was promised through subscription only, and likely started selling in 1902. Miner lived in Montague Center from the late 1800's until early or mid-1900's.
He wrote a 16-page prospectus pamphlet containing endorsements from local banks and others who had worked with him and vouched for his upstanding reputation.
I am wondering if anyone from the area has that book in their family's library or keepsakes, which is likely a slim volume.
I spoke with Ed Gregory from the Montague Historical Society, and he found a chemist's letter describing the chemical break down of true vanilla, but it did not contain Miner's formula, nor was it written by Miner.
You can reply here, or care of editor@montaguereporter.org
Thank you so much for any information,
Jerri Higgins

Hey, ED - wanna go for a friendly wager? You say 90% odds Montague will end up with the Farren building; I say it won't. I'll bet $10 to your $90. If Montague ends up with the building, I'll pay you; ....

We'll see. Past history may not be a good guide here -- so far, Trinity seems to want to do right by the town (within reason), unlike the owners of Strathmore and Railroad Salvage. Think good thoughts ....

Turners Falls -gfld
Any folks on here know of the time line for the repave job. A job that SHOULD have been done before the bridge by the Farren was closed. I took my old dude to an appt. last friday and got hung for over 25 mins. Thank goodness a call to his doctor held his appt. And Gfld wonders why people go north, south or east to shop. At least you can get there and PARK without paying. Thanks, ED

Summer Jobs For 14-year Olds?
Does anyone know if there are summer jobs around here for 14- year olds? I know years ago they could work tobacco (and buses even came by some places to pick them up), but that was a while ago. Wondering what the current situation is. Thanks in advance for any information.

Double Standard
Got to love it. In the last couple weeks there were articles in the Greenfield Distorter how local business's have donated goodies to the hospital. They told me I COULDN"T bring in boxes of goodies for my nurses in Oncolgy. I suppose I'm not important enough. I am only a lowly patient. Stay well....
