Bald Eagle Sighting On Hamilton Reservoir.

It was a beautiful day on the lake, about 11:00 AM, before all the powerboats come out. Bald Eagle spotted looking out over the old public beach area. High up in a well guarded pine tree, he looked out over the lake. Incredible bird!
View is from the water as he was eye balling us as we floated on by.

CHEFS sought for Rib Festival Fundraiser.

My name is Deborah Williams, resident of Holland Ma, and President of a the new non-profit organization, the BACK OF THE PACK Productions, (www.botpp.org). I am hosting a Rib Festival Fundraiser August 14th 3-5pm in Wales Ma at OakHaven Campground. I am in serious need of chefs to cook ribs. I was thinking posting an article on this Blog may jump-start some help?
I attempted to contact the fire departments in the 13 towns our by-laws cover as well to donate their time to be “chefs” with no luck. Any suggestions!

Johnson’s “Entitlement Mentality” At Its Best.

SCARY...-the-real-BRIAN-J-JOHNSONDuring the still ongoing hearing on my request to the Palmer District Court to issue a “Criminal Harassment Prevention Order” for my protection against Brian Johnson, Brain’s “Super Liar” Tani Sapirstein failed with her request to suppress my audio-recording form going into evidence.
Together with upcoming testimony by Officer Jeffrey Forcier from the HPD, the recording will prove to the Court that Brian Johnson did not only lie to the police to stay out of trouble, he falsely accused me of having made a death threat towards him (a crime in Massachusetts)!
Just three days after honorable Justice Patricia Poehler heard the audio recording, Sapirstein filed a civil suit on behalf of Brian Johnson, claiming that Johnson suffered (unspecified) damages. In the process, Sapirstein, for the second time, tried to dupe the court and did so with an outright lie. She even wants ME to pay for her efforts. On July 15, 2011, I filed a request in Palmer District Court to have Tani Sapirstein sanctioned for violating her attorney's oath, read more»
