Mayor Rob Dolan presented the MHS Lady Red Raiders basketball team with a special street sign -- and there's a move afoot to change the name of plain old Main Street --- to "Lady Red Raider Dynasty Drive". If so, the Mirror heartily endorses the mayor's brilliant idea, for the team has captured the Middlesex League eight years in a row.

INNER SANCTUM: The SilverStringers made a raid on MIT's Media Lab in Cambridge two weeks ago, making off with three "new" computers with matching monitors. Mirror editors Jim Driscoll and Don Norris met with magician/technicians Jon Ferguson, Will Gleaney and Peter Pflanz -- the team that keeps the Media Lab network operating -- to arrange for the transfer of the modified computers. Such visits are "awe-inspiring", Norris said. "That place is fascinating, the faculty and students are in some other world -- yet they seem to value our down-to-earth contribution," Driscoll commented. Now in the twelfth year of publication, the Melrose Mirror survives on its support from both the Media Lab and the Council on Aging in Melrose.
