Jim, lots of trouble getting on to the blog over the last few days. Actually, lots of trouble getting on the net, must be everyone trying to watch the Michael Jackson stuff. Anyway, thanks for posting the schedule. Nice to know this got saved. Great need for free family activities in times likes these, don’t you think?

Michael will be a news story for the next 6 months.. in the courts. Shame that he left so soon, but those doctors will be held
accountable I'll bet in the next few weeks.

Some stuff that Framingham is offering for kids through Park and Rec.

The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project will be spraying for mosquitoes in areas of Framingham on Wednesday, July 8th and Thursday, July 9th All spraying is done between between dusk and 11:30 PM.

On Wednesday, July 8th, spraying is scheduled for streets in the vicinity of Elm St., Griffin Rd., Pinewood Dr., Danforth St., Lake St., Old Connecticut Path, Summer St., Beacon St., Lockland Ave. and Prospect St.

On Thursday, July 9th, spraying is scheduled for areas of Framingham that are located in the vicinity of Hartford St., Gorman Rd., Guadalcanal Rd., Mt. Wayte Ave., Long Ave., Singletary Way, Old Worcester Rd., Temple St., Ellis St., Little Tree Lane, Irving St., Hollis St., Winthrop St. and Fay Rd.

The Project uses a spray formulation that contains the pesticide product, Anvil, to control mosquitoes. Anvil contains the pesticide sumithrin, which is a synthetic pryethroid that is classified as slightly toxic by the EPA. Mosquito control applications of sumithrin do not pose a significant risk to people or their pets due to the low toxicity of sumithrin and the small amount used to control mosquitoes. As with any pesticide, people should minimize their exposure. If residents see a spray truck approaching, they are advised to go indoors for a few minutes while the spray dissipates. Residents are also advised to close windows facing the street.

Information on the spray schedule is available via a recorded message at 781-893-5759 and at the Project web site at

If residents have any questions related to the spraying or any questions on mosquitoes, contact the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project at 781-899-5730.

I had trouble getting here also. Looks like maybe Pillsbury did too since nothing posted here in the last few days. I read somewhere that the net has been overloaded with people since Jackson died. I don’t get the interest in the guy myself, but I guess everyone else does. Got a question. What’s up with Cahil leaving the democratic party? Did anyone see that coming?

I've said for a while that Cahill would be there. He's been back dooring Deval for months now. but to drop out of the ruling party just to face Deval is not something I had guessed.

They are all, lining their pockets as we speak. Millions will be given by those who want a place at the table and bet, none of them will make a difference that helps any of us, not Deval, Cahill, Mihos or Baker, they are all in the same bed, all with the same old rhetoric and broken promises to us.

Perhaps there will be another independent to challenge Cahill, another Dem to challenge Deval and Baker and Mihos will have to have a run off as well. Next year, this State will spend a huge amount of money on primaries and be in worse financial shape than we are now in.

Not sure where to post this so I am just putting it here. Is anyone else starting to wonder where all the stimulus from this stimulus money is? Sure don't see much improvement in the unemployment numbers. Wasn't that one of the purposes of this money, to stimulate the economy by putting people back to work? If so it has failed miserably. What is the back-up plan. Jim what is your take on this. Is Obama tanking already.

Yeah we are all wondering what's up with the stimulus money and it's effect. Watching congress grill Obama's team seems to indicate that no one really figured how bad job loss would be. The administration is claiming it saved 150k jobs... but who really knows for sure.

I do know first hand that grant funding has not happened at all for anyone, including the big boys at NIH, DOE, etc. That money would definitely impact jobs now but for some unknown reason they haven't released a dime.

Mass got a good sum this year of stimulus money and is what has helped stave off even bigger budget cuts and is responsible for much of the major road and bridge work being done on State roads.

More business are cutting back as a hedge, more of employed people are saving instated of buying. Our whole world (at the bottom) is shrinking before our eyes, while some at the highest income levels are doing very well... like elected officials and those who financially support them. It's a great time to be a lobbyists or former elected official.

Look for another round of stimulus money later this year if things don't improve.

Hey Jim you on vacation or something? Haven't heard much from you hear in a few days. Hope you are enjoying the good weather. When are you back on line again?
