‘Read all about it’

Newspapers are done. That’s the story these days. And this message has been repeated year after year over the last two decades as more than 2,500 weekly publications in the United States either closed or merged with other papers as a way to survive.


There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow

The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye

And it looks like it’s climbing clear up to the sky

Oh! what a beautiful mornin’

Oh! what a beautiful day

The loss of an icon

Marshall Miles was many things to many people in our community. His name alone conjures so much meaning. There is no question that his death on Saturday, June 24, at age 70,  marked the end of an era when all of us in the Northwest Corner were lucky to have a “perfect local newscaster” with an unparalleled understanding of life in our towns.

Graduation time…

June is graduation month, the time to celebrate achievement. Students across the Northwest Corner are receiving diplomas and celebrating with their families and friends as they mark this rite of passage. Who can count how many photos are being snapped by iPhones clutched in the hands of proud parents and grandparents?

Spongy months again

It took eight months for the Entomological Society of America to come up with a new name for the invasive “spongy moth,” which is widespread in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada. It was introduced in  Massachusetts in the 1800s, according to the Society, and today racks up a damages in the millions of dollars.

Back to the Library

This week The Lakeville Journal is pleased to print a special section for readers that serves as a rich resource guide for our towns and villages. The supplement, included in this edition, comes with a special focus on libraries in our communities, but it also provides a valuable and convenient listing of other resources.
