Smart About Money: U.S. Secret Service

Usually when people have a visit from the U.S. Secret Service, it’s not a positive thing. But when the Secret Service came to see us at Canton Co-operative Bank a few weeks ago, it was at our invitation and I think it’s fair to say it was one of the most fascinating presentations I have […]

Guest Column: Marijuana Sales in Canton

I am your neighbor. I am middle-aged, white, educated, articulate. I own a home, pay taxes, and even license my dog. I work a full-time job that I’ve had for 17 years. I haven’t had a traffic ticket in over 20 years — not even a parking ticket. My FICO score is in the top […]

The Village Shoppes issued the following statement concerning the recent robbery and assault that occurred in the Shaw’s parking lot on July 14. The statement does not appear in the July 20 edition of the Canton Citizen because it was received after we had already gone to press. We, of course, are very concerned about […]

Four-Legged Friends: Goodbye Ming

Two weeks ago, my dear cat Ming reached the end of his journey. It wasn’t sudden, and it wasn’t a shock. After all, he was 16 years old. The inevitability of his passing doesn’t mean it was less painful for me. I had him put to “sleep” by a house-call veterinarian, Pawsitively Mobile Veterinary Services. […]

As You Like It: Lost Art of Letter Writing

It’s summer so I have more time to do things that I neglect during the school year. Like dusting. I hate dusting. I would rather get my teeth cleaned. At least there you know it will last six months. But dusting is something that only Sisyphus could have invented. But after reaching for a book […]
