No lake access this Thursday!

During the selectboard meeting last night, the Board informed the viewers that another chemical treatment will take place this Thursday, September 9th. The chemicals used this time will attack the aquatic plants on the water surface and the operation of power boats is not allowed for this reason. Swimming, irrigation of plants, and letting pets drinking lake water should be avoided for 48 hours. Who is going to inform our wildlife?

Live streaming video showing BPís work on the bottom of the ocean in the Mexican Gulf.

Even so the BP oil spill is not local news, it will sooner or later affect us all. The scale of the catastrophic oil spill in the Mexican Gulf is beyond anybodyís comprehension.

Live video link from the ROVs monitoring the work 5,200 feet below the ocean.
Enterprise ROV2 (showing the leak between the 19” riser and the top hat cap, the best capture rate with this setup is about 17% at best): Please be aware, these are live streams and may freeze or are unavailable from time to time.

Welcome Back!

Archive-picture-of-Officer-Duggan Archive-picture-of-Officer-Duggan

Herb Duggan is back! During tonight’s meeting of the Board of Selectmen, acting chief of the Holland Police Department Brian Haughey made a request to have Herb Duggan appointed to serve on the force as part time Police Officer.
Herb Duggan served the HPD before but unfortunately resigned last year to take a full time position serving the Police Department of West Brookfield. The selectboard of West Brookfield appointed Herb Duggan back on June 15, 2009 to serve on the West Brookfield Police Department.

I'm glad you are back in Holland, welcome back Officer Duggan.
