Brian Johnson’s (former) “Super Lawyer” Tani Sapirstein tried to dupe the Court.

Clint-Eastwood-as-“Dirty-Harry”
Tani Sapirstein of Sapirstein & Sapirstein, P.C., Attorneys at Law, is a familiar name since the last attempt by James Wettlaufer to prove that the Lamountain’s are not involved in farming failed miserably and the taxpayer had to pickup the tab for Wettlaufer’s personal vendetta against the LaMountain's.
Sapirstein is now representing defendant Brian Johnson, our elected Highway Surveyor, in an attempt to keep Brian’s criminal record untarnished. Honorable Justice Poehler from the Palmer District Court will decide at the end of the hearing whether a “Criminal Harassment Prevention Order” should issue against Brian Johnson, read more»

Spring time; watch out for Motorcycles!

Motorcycle-accident-at-Exit-2-off-I84-on-Eastern-Sunday It is that time of the year when Motorcycle enthusiasts take their two wheels out of the garage. It happens once in a while that some car driver just overlooks a motorcycle as it happened today at Exit 2 of I 84. A driver in a silver colored four door sedan was taking a left turn onto Haynes Road at the intersection with River Road in Sturbridge. It is the intersection where the Hebert Candies store was years ago. The driver had two passengers in his car and was on his way to the Public House to meet with his sister who was waiting there for him. The heavy touring motorcycle tried to avoid the collision but couldn’t and crashed into the silver colored sedan around 13:48 hours. The driver of the motorcycle had some injuries to his shoulder and his passenger was more seriously hurt.
Pictured above: EMTs called from Sturbridge attending the injured passenger of the motorcycle.

Don‘t Forget the Special Town Meeting this Tuesday, April 19!

There are two articles about bylaw changes which do not need to be on the Warrant for the Special Town Meeting slated for next Tuesday, April 19.
There is a third article, Article #7, nicely hidden in-between others, and I bet you don't know about it! Is there a reason why they are not on the Warrant for the Annual Town Meeting?
Also, read about interesting history and facts in connection with two (hypocritical ?) individuals roaming our Town Hall...

Accident at the Four Corners.

Accident-at-the-four-cornersToday, around 14:15 hours, a white Lincoln Sedan was traveling eastbound on Stafford Road. The black Honda CRV was traveling on Mashapaug Road towards Brimfield. It is not clear whether the white Lincoln failed to stop at the stop sign or if he stopped and thought that there is a fourway stop at the intersection and expected the other driver to stop.
Brimfield Ambulance, the Holland Fire Department, and the State Police were at the scene.

And You Think You Have It Bad.

Tax-Bill-of-Elisha-Washington-Marcy-property-of-1880
I thought some of the readers of the Holland Blog might enjoying seeing what their tax bill in Holland might have looked like back in 1880, (a 131 years ago), since our present tax bills were recently mailed out to us.
The tax rate was actually higher than it is now, $17.00 per thousand as opposed to our present rate of $14.58.
This is the real estate tax bill for Elisha Washington Marcy's property, he was the son of David Marcy who built the Holland Inn at the corner of Brimfield and Stafford Road in 1812. Below is familiar picture of the Inn to many of our Holland residents. Holland-Hotel-and-Church.
