Look Who's 70 ...1048 viewsWho just turned 70 years young, you ask? We have it from reliable sources that none other than Rochester Town Administrator and longtime Mattapoisett resident James Huntoon (seen here keeping busy at work) commemorated the big 7-0 milestone on Wednesday, August 31. And we didn’t think Mr. Huntoon looked a day over 69! The Wanderer would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr. Huntoon a very Happy 70th Birthday and many more! (Photo by Kenneth J. Souza).
