Smart About Money: How to Become Rich

A few weeks ago, there was a radio commercial for some sort of money-making opportunity. I don’t remember the company or what they were selling. I do remember very clearly hearing the commercial say, “You can’t get rich by saving.” What? Huh? The simple fact is that even if you win a monster lottery or […]

Four-Legged Friends: ID Tags

Whenever I see a “Do you know this dog?” (or cat) posting from Canton Animal Control on Facebook, it makes me wonder why so many folks seem to have a hard time keeping identification on their pets. It isn’t difficult at all to affix an ID tag to your pet’s collar, so why do so […]

Man About Canton: Canton Softball Issues

Did you know … MAC read with great interest the recent article by reporter Mike Berger in the Canton Citizen regarding the “dwindling softball interest” in the town of Canton. The Canton Men’s League was established in 1946 and the Slow Pitch League began in 1967. According to Berger, a combination of a lack of […]

Margin Notes: Good Books

This summer, I worked in a bookstore, a job I’ve wanted — and idealized — for a long time. “It doesn’t matter what work they’ll have me doing,” I told my mom insistently when she pointed out the other work that comes with the job. “I’ll be able to talk with people about books.” Then […]

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 […]

Man About Canton: Atty. John Dowd

Man About Canton: A Funicular

Did you know … The Boston Globe recently did a story in its business section on a proposal by Shelly Hoon-Keith and her husband, builder and former Cantonite John Keith, to access the Neponset River from their new hilltop home in Milton. The river is more than 45 feet down a steep bluff in their […]

Smart About Money: Credit Card Rewards?

As I recall, it was the late WBZ radio host Lovell Dyett who used to say, “Spend your time wisely. It’s the only money you’ve got.” I found myself thinking about that when reading a page 1 Wall Street Journal article about people who get credit cards to chase bonus points and credit card rewards.
