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 […]

Heartfelt thanks to a town that gave so much

Dear Editor: The sons of Karl and Frances Bischoff wish to thank so many of their wonderful neighbors, friends, first responders — simply put, too many people to count — who gave their lives as residents of Canton so much meaning. It’s easy to take for granted the things that make up normal everyday life. […]

Smart About Money: Banking Advice

This is not just about Canton Co-operative Bank, though that is obviously the bank I know best. From my previous career as a bank examiner, I know that what I am about to say is true of many, many community banks throughout New England and nationwide. Day-to-day money management is a huge part of people’s […]

Notes from the State Democratic Convention

Dear Editor: I recently attended the State Democratic Convention as a delegate from Canton. I participated in amending the platform with regard to protection of immigrants and protection of homeowners from arbitrary foreclosures, but an attempt to solve the Israel/Palestine problem didn’t work as the chair ruled that such matters were outside the purview of […]

Ticks: No Friend of Mine

When I was a kid, a tick was just a disgusting thing you had to occasionally pull off the dog. I vividly remember my dad deciding I was old enough to start doing it myself instead of running to him and telling him, “Dad, there’s a tick on the dog.” I didn’t want to touch […]
