Published the First Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, MA -- January 5, 2001


OVERVIEW: It's what a crow sees of our town -- at least it's what he sees from the sixth floor of the Cochrane House on Grove Street, looking north from Bill Jodrey's living room. Bill is the elder statesman of the SilverStringers, and one of our more prolific writers -- at age 88. This week he got together with Editor Don Norris to produce an unusal picture of Melrose, spiced with comments on what's where and why.
