Town Talk: Vermont Street BBQ deal for Mass. location falls through; Berry Plastics project delayed but still moving forward; a new fee for city sidewalks?; artificial turf turned down

Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger has been one of the few elected Republican officials in the country to work to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Since Republicans have made repeal of the Act a primary goal, what should she do?

"what if all the dems switched to repubs "........

Gunshots, Fireworks, Marijuana and a Flaming Toilet

What about the idiocy of actually responding to a call about the smell of marijuana? Next time I smell a fart I'm calling in to report a pollution violation.

Injury Accident & Duplex Fire Overnight

" I don't like the idea of a guy with a laptop and a police radio supposedly reporting "news" on a newspaper's website."....
Then don't read it. Get a life and stop whining about a blog.
