Trick or Tree?545 viewsThis spooky spectre of a gnarled tree is located at the corner of Mattapoisett Road and New Bedford Road in Rochester. Looking like something that walked right out of the twisted forest in The Wizard of Oz, the tree seems right at home during this haunted season of All Hallow’s Eve.

Ripe for the Picking548 viewsIt’s fall harvest time ... and in Rochester that means cranberries! Although not as prevalent as they once were, several family-owned cranberry bogs and farms are still maintained and thrive within the quaint farming community of Rochester. These ripe cranberries are now “ready for the picking” at the Fielding family farm in Rochester. (Photo by and courtesy of Greta Grundstrom).

Blues From Man in Blue1791 viewsRochester Police Officer Johnny Barnes, who is also the author of two self-published murder mysteries, poses with a copy of his new CD, Known Offenders, which collects both brand new and previously-released material from his heyday as an active member of the Boston music scene. The music can best be described as blues-flavored-rock, akin to The Rolling Stones and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
