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

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.
