The Salem Cross Inn-Happy 50th to a West Brookfield Institution

The Salem Cross Inn is an historical gem, and great beef. The summer Drover's roasts are justly famous. I used to try and convince people not from West Brookfield that the placid steers grazing outside were like a lobster tank. If you had enough people in your party, the chef would roast the steer you chose and serve it. few people were that gullible.

Below is my review from the March, 2008 issue of the Sturbridge Times. Magazine.

Sturbridge Times Magazine is out, Shameless Self Promotion-July edition

Let's hope July is less eventful than the previous month with the tornado!

Do the experts know what they are talking about, some do, some guess or fudge it. On Page 5 is a review of Wrong, by David H. Freedman. Experts got some splainin to do.

Put knowledge of wood and love of music together in one man and what do you get? Paul Girouard, Fine Lines craftsman, is now making guitars. Read about it on Page 13.

Politically, economically and environmentally, we have problems. The new, local Green Rainbow Party has ideas on Page 17.

My column on Page 18 is about the tornado. Hint, I thought I was going to have a Dorothy Gale moment.

There are many other writers with articles in the Sturbridge Magazine, so look for it on a newstand. If you don't find one, you can download a pdf at http://sturbridgetimes.com/
