I love me some smooth pavement.
Occasionally I point out that our DPW is very good. Lately they
seem everywhere: Park St. got repaired, Miller patched. Sightlines
project at corner on Myrtle is underway. They did Leland inc new
lines and they brush-hogged the first 6ft of roadside slop. It is
noticed. We walk alot too and although we dont walk by Main & Canterberry,
its nice to see sidewalk connections. Paying higher taxes isnt much
fun but these touches make me happy. P.s. We need some more sports
fields: Pond St. is always too busy, needs at least some rest/alt
What an awful story, and what [gall] to have an unfriendly dog
unleashed in an area where other peole walk their dogs and then to be so
low as to run off before you could find out to whom to send the vet
bills. Thank God your kids weren't hurt and the dog will be alright.
This is why you see people walking their dog with a stick: It's to ward
off the other dog.

I live close to the Freeman Kennedy School and enjoy the opportunity to
walk the grounds with my dog. He is always on his leash and we are very
diligent about cleaning up after him. This past Friday evening my dog
was viciously attacked by another dog who was not on a leash. While my
son and his friend were fending this dog off, the female owner ran at
them screaming that her dog was not a "friendly" dog. She then
proceeded to grab her dog, jump in her car, and leave without ever
checking on the condition of my dog.
My dog has had two vet visits as a
result of this attack and thankfully he is OK and will not need surgery.
If your dog is not friendly, keep it at home and away other dogs and
people. And certainly don't come back to the Freeman because I'm
looking for you!

him, contact the Animal Control officer for additional details.
AB ~ I thought I was the king conservative (but really moderate)
curmudgeon !! You make me look like an amateur.
I agree the roads are awful but is it only ``young and rich'' people
driving nice cars that bother you? I say this only because you did
not mention Ford Focus's, Honda Accords, etc. Did you ever think
maybe you had maybe crossed the center line?
I kind of agree about the landscapers but it bothers me more when
they prune my neighbors shrubs for 2 weekdays with gas powered
trimmers on my weekday off.
The round-a-bouts. I have given up because most people do not
have a clue about traffic rules. In too much of a hurry and on the
phone. I prefer to remember my driver education instructor always
telling us to look out for the other guy. Good advice. Has worked
for 46 years. I never go into the round-about with my eyes not
wide open. Are the cars that bother you also Audi's and Land Rover's?
However, on the serious side, if we put a part time police officer,
yes, on a detail, at both round-a-bouts writing tickets we could
pay the officer and have $$ to fix the roads !!
Have no problem with dogs. My neighbors all walk around the
neighborhood with bags of doggie poop! Does anyone else think pets
are in charge !!!
Pond Street ~ Sounds to me that the Rec. Dept. should monitor this
and call the highway garage and provide more trash barrels and
more frequent pickups. Would you rather people throw it out their
car window on the way home?
Finally ~ the new Kids Place playground. Did it ever occur to you,
since RI is a 15 minute ride from here, that grandparents, aunts,
uncles, cousins, friends , etc. could be visiting or watching childen
in Norfolk? I would only be upset about this if I saw RI plates at
the dump. Oh. Pardon me. The Transfer / Recycling Station.
One curmudgeon to another. Lighten up and go with the flow. There
are bigger battles to fight.

BF: Getting together to discuss it won't do a thing. I have a noise
issue from a business on my end of Seekonk, that is ridulous. I have
held off going officially to Bob Bullock (I spoke to him informally,
already) because it has been quieter over there. I don't know if he
went and spoke to them or not. I was supposed to get back to him and I
personally don't want to play this card until I need to. However, if
you want to get a group together (I'm in to support you), and go to Bob
Bullock, in town hall, that is your only recourse, in my opinion, IF
the noise is coming from businesses.. I can tell you if someone is
working on their residential property, or has workmen doing something,
then the 7-7 Mon-Sat will apply. At least check this yourself with the
police to see if my information is correct, though I am pretty sure it
is. Get my email from Andras if you wish. I totally agree: We didn't
sign up for this by moving to Norfolk.
Well, AB, let your complaint flag fly... I couldn't agree more (perhaps
we are kindred spirits)... just be braced for anger and indignation from
the loyalists. You HAVE to tell your story to Town Hall to possibly GET
RESULTS re the sightlines, the roads and the hanging bushes. I don't
understand why people think posting here will do them any good re
town-management issues, though all are free to do so, of course.
Trimming the bushes SURELY cannot be too expensive to do. I've also
been meaning to say something about the bush by the corner house @
Seekonk and Main, but I wonder if that bush is on private property. (I
don't see HOW a house can be historic covered with vinyl, but let that
go. The truly old house is the one diagonally across the street with
the [...] assortment of refuse in the yard.) There's also the
matter of the flowering trees near the cemetery sign, but they will soon
lose their flowers and you can mostly see through them. However, I have
a tall vehicle.
AB, Your concerns are pretty serious. You should consider a citizens
arrest of those out-of-staters using our new playground. These immigration
issues are just so complex, would we have to arrest the children too and
deport them back to RI? Perhaps the police could do a strip search of all
those driving cars with out of state plates as they cross our
Norfolk borders. I have to go see my dad in RI this afternoon and I am
ready for anything. You keep worrying so we don't have to!
It's that time of year again... If you're looking for small personal
home daycare for your child starting now or September, email me! Have a
lot to offer, great experience with children and great references!
Contact ASAP ....Ktdemarzo@gmail.com
Happy 4th of July!
