On the ‘Clock’ 18 viewsNow you can literally watch your speed as you (hopefully) watch your speed on Route 6 with the two new permanent traffic speed indicators both east and west of the Little Neck Village entrance in East Marion. Rep. William Straus joined Police Chief John Garcia, MassDOT workers, and the Board of Selectmen early on Tuesday, June 12, for the unveiling and installation of the signs. Seen here, a State Trooper chats while Chief Garcia watches the sign flash a prompt to drivers who exceed 60 mph. Photo Jean Perry

Bloom (and Gloom) 33 viewsThe “bloom is off” the $7.9 million Marion Town House renovation article, which was defeated 214-120 on Monday night during the Annual Town Meeting.

We especially liked the message on this leaf: “When life gives you lemons, make orange juice. Be unique.” Right on, young sassy poet… Stop by and post a poem of your own before April is over.

Weed is the Word 68 viewsWe visited BASK, the 10,000 square-foot medicinal marijuana cultivation operation and dispensary in Fairhaven that recently opened on Pequod Way, and toured the facility with Mattapoisett resident and BASK CEO Chapman “Chappy” Dickerson.
