Shameless Self Promotion-September Edition

The September edition of the Sturbridge Times Magazine has been mailed out and there are contributions by yours truly.

The country is going through a bad patch economically. On Page 4 Alex Pifer and Brenda Higgins discuss what Sturbridge merchants, office holders, and residents are doing about it. Read about the new Merchants of Sturbridge organization.

On Page 9 It's book review time. On the silver screen there were many pirates portrayed. Not all the Tinsel Town Jack Sparrows were on film. Joseph P. Kennedy Presents: His Hollywood Years by Cari Beauchamp Is the story of a swashbuckling innovator who came to Hollywood a rich man and left a very rich man.

Page 15 highlights a birthday celebration and fundraiser. Audrey, a "shorkie" dog celebrated her special day by raising funds for the Second Chance Animal Shelter. Enjoy Audrey's Big Bash.

Sturbridge has a wealth of trails. That's a good thing, but there is no complete handle on what is owned and what we are doing about it. In the article Are we ready to implement a master plan for our trails? on Page 18, Tom Chamberland was kind enough to discuss the matter of a master plan for trails.

Page 22 has my column, In Law, Less is More... More or Less. It is a discussion and solution to the problem of wordiness in law.

There are many other great articles this month. If you do not get it delivered you can read it online here or pick it up at any of the locations listed below. Just click on the graphic.
