What Can Your Mortgage Do for You?

Up until about the mid 1980s, a homeowner who wanted to borrow against the equity in their home had to take out what was known as a “second mortgage.” And there was a stigma against second mortgages. Then some enlightened bankers started thinking about homeowners and their equity differently. And so two of the most […]

Praise for two Canton citizens

Dear Editor: Canton is a village that raises good citizens, as per recent events regarding our state police and another involving the dam at Reservoir Pond. Ryan Sceviour, the state trooper featured in the November 16 edition of the Canton Citizen, was on the wrestling team at CHS coached by Tom Bartosek, as were two […]

Praise for local state trooper and coverage

Dear Editor: Thank you for your recent article on State Trooper Ryan Sceviour. When I read the initial Boston Globe blurb reporting on the federal lawsuit by Trooper Ryan Sceviour against Colonel Richard McKeon (former superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police), I thought that the “powers-that-be” would likely make all this ugliness go away. (Any word on former State […]

Man About Canton: ‘Fake News’

Did you know … Collins Dictionary has made the term “fake news” the Collins Word of the Year for 2017.

Four Legged Friends: Giving Thanks

This year, no one came for Thanksgiving with my mother except me. So I was a little down. She recently moved into a new place, and I thought it would have been nice to have some additional family, but everyone had other plans. So be it. After our meal, she went to take a nap, […]

Resident seeks answers after paving nightmare

Dear Editor: On Monday, November 13, someone made the decision to pave Messinger and Walnut streets. Okay, but what explains the decision to pave Rockland and Mechanic streets at the same time, making it physically impossible for any resident to get home or for school buses, mail deliveries, UPS, etc. to get through. This was a huge mistake […]

Bridge over troubled waters?

Dear Editor: Given the connection between Napleton Co. and Canton Holdings, does Canton really think it wise to buy a bridge from this outfit? (The zoning board has approved a new road and bridge through the Plymouth Rubber redevelopment site that will connect Revere and Neponset streets.) Ever since the million-dollar expenditure approved at town […]

Each year, MAC publishes some facts, figures, and trivia from the Canton/Stoughton rivalry that started in 1926. Here we go for this year: The rivalry is 91 […]

Thank you to Canton Youth Hockey

Dear Editor: My younger son recently played his final game in a Canton Youth Hockey uniform. I would like to thank the program for the many wonderful experiences my two boys have had over the last 15 seasons and acknowledge the wonderful volunteers, both coaches and administrators, who make this program possible. With over 500 kids registered, […]

Margin Notes: Girl, Traveling Alone

On one of our last nights in Bologna, my American friend and I went to a wine bar that we heard was the oldest in the city and, perhaps, in all of Italy. Turning off of an alleyway into an even smaller alleyway, we walked back and forth a few times before recognizing the nondescript […]
