The year of Melrose's own Big Dig
On mailboxes, memories and raucous parties
This is the second time Don Murray's photo has appeared in this column, the first when he provided the Stringers with a poignant lesson on writing about life. This time, unfortunately, it is to report his sudden passing. Advisor Jack Driscoll wrote the story. It is linked here.

A bright, shiny, new look appears on the Council on Aging's 165 year old carriage house, thanks to Sheriff James DePaolo and his crew of prisoners from the Middlesex House of Correction. The COA made a contract to paint our Milano Senior Center using volunteer inmates in the Sheriff's early release program. The seniors met a nice crew of men who were polite, upbeat, personable and good workers, while the Council saved about $40,000.
