The sad last face to be posted and remembered as the last PERP to be strung up by the short hair's. Good job and congratulations on a life time of court, and probation --- Wow, here is what SHS grads do. View Comment
SELCO is beginning to start running scared. The last few moves shows this.
IMO getting ready to decrease the payments in Lew of taxes in the next few years. If homeowners/renters start dropping cable tv in lew of just high speed cable, they have a excuse to decrease of stop the payments to town. Thus, this will also leave a back door for other cable companies to come in to town. Besides Dish network - already here, and free over the air 20 stations, with on roof antenna and DTV converter box. View Comment
I bought my home 10 yrs ago in Shrewsbury for location, and lower costs than other towns, not the school system.....no kids for me. (not worried about the protection of my race.) I know kids are very expensive and did not mind paying for my education 20 yrs ago, now....but not at these kinds of rate increases each year, after year.
Oh, BTW the 2 Shrines construction costs, for which I have toured, are not even in the operational budget that the School Dept are looking to increase at a 7%-8%. Just this year. The Shrines construction costs, are a 20 yr tax increase, albeit decreasing as we go. So, add that to the Opp costs too.
When will there be a School Dept Operation decrease? Yes, half of the whole pie is a huge chunk of my tax monies. One would think, with all the new technology, IPADS, and Apple Computers...we would start to see a Tech dividend relating to a decrease in the amount of total teachers needed.
But, no, no, no........Schools need lower class sizes.....that is a bunch of BULL-HOCKEY...School class size should be irreverent with new technology!
Any chance to sell the old Sherwood School to a town like Worc, or any town that needs a decent school. There are many towns with much worse schools than that, with no talk of replacement, in fact they would love a school like that. It really was not that bad to justify a new Shrine.
Or even a night school....or how about our own in-town Sped school, where we can take out-of town placements and charge then an arm and a leg. View Comment
Gee, what will happen if "the other half" puts their 2 person, non kid, homes up for sale, with a handicapped ramp, 4 bedrooms, with a view... up for sale to Far East families that want to move close to "Patel's".
Ok, I get a 15% premium for my house sale, and Shrewsbury gets a nice, non- English or SPEDbury tax bill.......to go.
Don't even try to tell me that, we have a better School District than other towns in the area...especially east of us, albeit at 1/4 less of their costs. Trust me, the costs are hidden for us. Just financed out for many years. Dan M. and the school district are very creative.
Don't tell Selco...been using this for free for years.
Got all the equipment off CraigsList at a very low or free cost.
6 TV's in my house all getting 20 channels.....and on-demand tv such as Hulu for the rest if I want to use my computer as a TV. View Comment

I respect Lisa's point of view as a nurse practitioner with a law degree.
It is the kind of knowldge one would need to understand the full aspect of the new proposed law. However, some times I wish it would be available for some who need it the most, and to save our health care system some much need funds going foward for society. View Comment
