Mr. Frei-
Please post this urgent message:

There has recently been a series of break ins in Sturbridge and Brimfield. In Brimfield chain saws were taken from a residence on 5 Bridges Road during the day. Also in Brimfield 5 chainsaws were taken from a locked shed on the Freeman Farm. Only the good ones were taken... And this theft likely occurred at night. Other area homes have also had items stolen. The thieves seem to target snow blowers generators and chain saws, however I heard of at least one person who had expensive jewelry stolen. Please if anyone has seen anything contact the police! Keep your eyes open and report any suspicious cars in your neighborhood. Secure your belongings.... Although they travel with bolt cutters.... So it is important to be diligent and keep your eyes open. This economy is tough enough. No one wants to have to replace large ticket items. Let's catch these thieves!

Holland Pizza isn't Holland Pizza anymore! I heard Mike the Greek is now leasing the business. We went there tonight for dinner. It was FANTASTIC!!! The pizza was thin crust, and REALLY GOOD! one of my kids ordered a cheeseburger and was given a choice of mashed with gravy or french fries, the clam chowder was superb and came out steaming. It is restaurant style so they come to your table to wait on you. It looks different inside with all the tablecloths and vases on the tables. We even treated ourselves to homemade cheesecake for dessert! I highly recommend checking out the new pizza in town, it's excellent! (my kids even got a charge out of watching them toss the dough to make our pizza!) -DMK
