Smart About Money: Preventing Embezzlement

There are a couple of situations when a local business owner should absolutely take action to determine if someone is abusing your trust and embezzling from your business. If you have a nagging feeling that someone could be embezzling from you — that something is “off” somehow — chances are your intuition is correct. If […]

Enough with the Trump bashing

Dear Editor: Regarding several recent intense letters to the Canton Citizen by Alice Brown, my response is: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” (from William Shakespeare). And to use a much more common 21st century expression: “Enough already!” Her points have been made. I don’t think any more from her needs to be stated about (that is, against) President Trump. I did vote for […]

Four Legged Friends: Only the Lonely

Separation anxiety (SA) is a condition affecting both young and old dogs, newly purchased puppies, secondhand dogs from the shelter, or in my case, adopted ex-racing dogs. SA can range from mild to severe, and too many dogs are returned to shelters or adoption groups by overwhelmed owners who have no idea how to deal […]

Anti-pipeline study does disservice to local energy customers

Dear Editor: Your recent story about the proposed Access Northeast gas pipeline project, “New report questions costs, need for pipeline project” (Canton Citizen, 3/2/17), highlights a seriously flawed analysis of the need for additional pipeline infrastructure here in New England. While your balanced story included comments from Spectra Energy refuting the study, I feel compelled […]

Praise for CCTV’s Andrea Galvin

Dear Editor: I would like to thank Andrea Galvin of Canton Community TV for taking time out of her day to search for 20-year-old episodes of “School Days.” Andrea spent time converting old VHS tapes to digital files so we could show clips at our 20th class reunion. Her dedication to cataloging Canton’s happenings for […]

Project RISE: Big Changes Start Small

Submitted by Project RISE, a Canton High School Community Problem Solving Team “Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity,” were the wise words of the highly revered Pope Francis. These words hold true to the fact that refugees should not be regarded with indifference; these words imply that refugees are humans […]

Man About Canton: Marijuana Law

Did you know … Because Question 4 on the November 8 ballot passed, retail sales of recreational marijuana are likely to commence in Massachusetts this fall when the state plans to make licenses available. The ballot question included a provision that prohibits municipalities from banning or severely limiting sales except by referendum. Massachusetts became the […]

Margin Notes: Speak

On Mondays, I help teach English to Italian fourth graders. It’s not so much teaching as giving short vocabulary presentations then helping them write sentences — which turns into a Q&A. “Do you eat corn dogs in America?” one boy asks me. “Does Trump live in Massachusetts?” another asks. The 9 year olds all giggle […]

Jeremy Comeau will be a strong voice for Canton

Dear Editor: I am writing in support of Jeremy Comeau, who is running for selectman. Having recently met Mr. Comeau, I can attest that he is a bright and impassioned leader who advocates for tolerance, a value of particular importance at the local level given the uncertain political climate we currently face in this country. […]

As a member of the Playground and Recreation Commission, he has consistently demonstrated strong leadership skills and an exceptional ability to work with others. Tom is a person of integrity whose […]
