Kristin LaPlante: “I’M SO EXITED..”

Town clerk Kristin LaPlante’s efforts paid out. She tirelessly submitted repeatedly grant applications for different programs to save the town some money. Last year she received a grant for the recently installed security light in front of the Holland Elementary School.
Today she got the good news; the Patrick-Murray Administration Announced that Holland will receive $500,000.00 in Grant money. “I’m really glad that I was able to save the taxpayers so much money,” said Kristin LaPlante. The funds will be used to improve Sturbridge Road at the intersection of East Brimfield Road and Sand Hill Road.
Holland and Ashby are the two only towns in Massachusetts who got a $500,000.00 grant.

Just one of Earl Johnson‘s corrupt actions will cost the community $21,870 every year, indefinitely!

The quotation “The power to tax is the power to destroy,” comes from the words of DANIEL WEBSTER and those of JOHN MARSHALL, Justice of the Supreme Court.
In the landmark case, McCulloch v. Maryland, Justice Marshall opined: “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy.”
This is what Earl Johnson is trying to do; the Board of Assessors under Earl Johnson increased my taxes from $6,828.99 (FY2009) to $11,532.34 (FY2010)! What would you do in my situation? Unfortunately, I‘m not the only one who looses, read more»

Nightly Search from the Sky.

Around 21:30 hours tonight, two residents called 911 and reported screams and the sound of breaking ice coming from the frozen lake down by the dam. Members-of-the-Holland-Fire-and-Rescue-Department-arriving-on-the-sceene First on the scene was a state Trooper followed by several members of the Holland Volunteer Fire Rescue Department only minutes later. Brimfield Ambulance and Holland Police followed.
The response time for all the emergency personnel that were called-in was impressive, and is actually all the time very short!
If someone would fall through the ice, seconds could make the difference between life and death. Immediately after their arrival, the mostly young men and women ventured out on the ice into the darkness in an attempt to locate the person(s) in need. However, nobody was found.
About half an hour later, a helicopter — I believe stationed in Westfield — arrived and scanned the north end of Hamilton Reservoir near the dam with its powerfull search light. As far is I could tell, nothing was found and the possibility that someone could have pretended to be in a life threatening situation was an upsetting thought.

Just three days ago, the emergency personnel were called to rescue a large dog.

Holland’s Ice Not Safe Right Now.

Kyle-and-his-parents-Michael-and-Holly-Rutkowski-to-the-right-of-the-trailer-loading-rescue-equipment-after-the-rescue Above normal temperatures and rain is making the ice cover of our lakes unsafe.
Today, shortly after noon, a large Bullmastiff dog fell through the ice on Lake Siog, also called Holland Pond.
Holland Police and Holland Fire Rescue were called. The dog and his owner are fine.
