As a result of November's elec-
tion and the passage of Question
One abolishing the state census,
Wilmington and other Massachu-
setts' towns will be redrawing their
precincts based on the 1990 federal
Local census forms have just been
mailed out to all Wilmington
residents and should be returned to
Town Clerk Patty Ward no later
than February 1.
Ward told Wilmington selectmen
at their meeting Monday night, any
possible changes are on hold until
legislation is passed to spell out
how to go about redistricting'and
counting the number of citizens in
a community. The federal census is
typically done by blocks with
streets used as boundaries. Ward
said the federal government will
provide software to make the job
easier. For local rcdistrictidng
purposes, residents of institutions
like colleges, prisons, hospitals,
and military bases who are not
local registered voters will not be
included in the population.
Under present requirements, no
more than 4,000 inhabitants arc
allowed in each precinct. There is
room for a five percent leeway
either above or below the average.
Ward said the only one of
Wilmington's six precincts that
would be affected by the re-
districting would be Precinct
Three, which is over the limit. She
said about 435 people would be
affected. Some of those people
would have to be added to Precinct
Four, Ward said. She explained
the overflow is due to new
construction in subdivisions like
Patches Pond and Towpath Lane.
"We should be able to adjust the
whole town without any big
changes," Ward said.
Once the redistricting is complete
for use in the 1994 state elections,
there won't be anymore changes
until the next federal census in
2000, said Ward.
Desert Shield flag
Wilmington will soon be flying a
third flag on the town common in
honor of local servicemen sta-
tioned in the Persian Gulf.
Selectmen agreed Monday to
purchase and fly the flag below
American and POW flags already
on the flagpole.
Steve LaRivee provided the im-
petus to lake the action. LaRivee
suggested the town purchase the
flag from a police officer in
Reading or borrow his own flag to
run up the flagpole. The flag is
white with a yellow ribbon in the
middle and the words "We support
ourtroops. Come home soon."
As LaRivee petitioned the board,
he noted this was only a temporary
measure until the troops do indeed

In an irony of timing, this post card was found last Thursday in a suitcase of old photos. It is

With the Persian Gulf crisis foremost in everyone's mind, several Wilmington
residents attended a Vigil for Peace at the St. Elizabeth's Chapel on Forest Street.
Organized by the Wilmington Council of Churches, the 12-hour vigil included
services throughout the day led by clergy from various churches. The group
above is singing a hymn, concluding a prayer group led by Sister Catherine Lee
of St. Thomas Church. A brochure staled that the Vigil for Peace was not a
political statement but a statement of faith, praying for God's intervention.

A local bank last week set a
precedent by being the first bank to
offer to build affordable housing in
Everett Olsen, president of the
Commercial Bank and Trust Co,
approached members of the
Wilmington Housing Partnership
Thursday to get a consensus on a
proposal for property the bank
owns at 4IB Lake St. The bank had
foreclosed on the 21,800 square
foot lot last fall. There is currently
a vacant home and a garage on the
lot. But neighbors said, with
flooding problems,due to frozen
pipes, broken windows, and
break-ins by vandals, the property,
poses a danger to'area children and
ought to be condemned. Building
Inspector James Russo, who also
serves on the WHP, promised to
inspect the premises the next day
and make a recommendation.
Building affordable homes isn't
new to the Commercial Bank and
Trust Co. The bank also financed
the development of a low income
home on Everett Avenue, which
was built under the auspices of the
Wilmington Community Development
During discussion Thursday, Olsen
said the construction of one or
two affordable homes on the site
could prove beneficial to both the
town and his bank. Board members
agreed unanimously to act on the
proposal. However, they were

uncertain as to what the best
approach would be. Since the lot is
in an R10 zone, it would be big
enough for two homes. But
members noted that would be
nearly impossible with only 45 feet
of frontage. Russo asked why they
couldn't build a duplex on the site,
once they got a comprehensive i
permit from the board of appeals.
Bruce MacDonald suggested
building two dwellings off a
common driveway. Olsen said, if it
was feasible, he'd rather sec two
affordable homes instead of only
one and one market rate unit.
Chairman Carole Hamilton said
the best route would be toVhavc a
"marriage" between the bank and a
-developer rather than go through
town meeting to obtain funds to
buy the property.
"We don't really want to recom-
mend the town shell out money to
buy property," said Hamilton.
Several neighbors were present at
the meeting. They said they were
concerned that the lot would be
subdivided. They also asked that

communities to join NESWC. Ac-
cording to selectmen, the decision
to go with the group was made
when town officials realized that
landfills were closing and there
were few places left to dispose of
Selectmen were concerned Mon-
day with the potential increase in
tipping fees. They said one reason
they elected to go with NESWC
was to keep a set fee. According to
Chairman Bob Doucctte, the town
originally paid Sll a ton to
NESWC. Doucctte called current
costs "phenomenal" arid asked if
fees could reach Si00 a ton soon.
Hopcroft said yes but added
NESWC was looking into other
alternatives, such as rehnancing
some bonds, to keep costs down. He
explained that a legislative bill to
transfer ownership of the land
under the plant to NESWC was
pulled at the end of last year
because of a wording change. That
bill, however, has been refiled.
Selectmen noted the one bright
spot in the whole picture is the
savings being realized through
Wilmington's recycling efforts.
That savings came to about
S50,000 last year, said officials.
The change in leadership in the
Mass. House of Representatives has
resulted in a change of committee
assignments for many Democratic
legislators. The new speaker,
Charles Flaherty, announced the
new positions on Monday.
Among the many reps with new
committee assignments was Rep.
Jim Miceli, who has been re-
assigned to two committees. Public
Service and Election Laws. He had
previously served on the pres-
tigious Ways and Mean Committee.
His phone number at the Stale
House is still 617-722-2380.
Two other representatives for
Wilmington, freshmen Rob
Krckorian and Marianne Brcnton,
being Republicans, will receive
their committee assignments from
the minority leader.

Over 50 neighbors of a proposed
commercial subdivision off Ains-
worth Road in Wilmington
expressed frustration Tuesday with
potential impacts if the project is
approved by the town. Neighbors
asked so many questions at the
planning board's public hearing
that the original hour session
stretched to two as residents sought
.justification of the project being
developed by owner Robert Corey
and Sunshine Investment Realty
Ken Lcavitt seemed to sum it up
best. "This whole concept of a
development in this area is
ridiculous. This project really
shouldn't fly," he said, referring to
the probability of drainage.
problems, increased traffic in the
Andover Street area, possible
danger to neighborhood youth and
the town's water supply once the
lots are sold and fully built up.
Later, he asked the board if there
was any way to "kill" the project.
Planners told him anyone can build
anything as long as it's within the
town's zoning bylaws.
After reviewing two drafts of
covenants and restrictions restrict-
ing the use of the project site and
spelling out design restrictions, as
well as a recent decision by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, the board agreed to
continue the hearing yet again, this
time to February 5. Chairman
Dave Clark suggested the hearing
be continued to allow input from
the board of health and to give
planners time to research and
discuss six waiver requests and
possible tradeoffs in infrastructure
improvements. The applicant is
seeking waivers for such things as
sidewalks, roadway grade, and
Much of the evening's discussion
centered on a request for a waiver
to reduce the width of Ainsworth
Road from the required 42 feet to
32 feet. Area residents claimed the
waiver, along with traffic pro-
jections of approximately 420
vehicle trips per day during after-
noon rush hour into Ainsworth
Road would create safety prob-
lems. Planner Carole Hamilton
admitted the board was "between a
rock and a hard place" over the
roadway width. She explained a
wider road would be safer and go
along with subdivision regulations
but would have a more detrimental
affect on wetlands. She said her
board was now in the negotiation
process with proponents to
determine the best route to go.
Whatever the board's final
decision, both the developer and
abuttors have the right to appeal,
Hamilton said. Neighbors would
have 20 days from the filing date
with the town clerk to file an
Paul Lindholm, engineering
consultant for Corey, told the
board he would prefer a decision
on the waivers soon because that
decision would affect a decision by
the DEP. The DEP is currently .
looking at several drainage and
wetlands issues with the project.
All information furnished by DEP
centers on the 32 foot wide
roadway, which has yet to be
approved by the planning board,
and not on the regulation size road.
In a letter to the board, the
conservation administrator sugg-
ested planners postpone their de-
cision until information requested
by DEP is furnished by the ap-
plicant. The administrator said
DEP's decision will be "criti-
cal"since it could change such
things as the layout of the road.
Lindholm disagreed. He said only
the size of a culvert under
Ainsworth Road could impact the
Neighbors also spoke out on
drainage. Some homeowners, like
Mr. Judson, wondered where wa-
ter runoff will go once much of the
site is paved. Hamilton explained
once the road is in place, the lots
will be developed separately and
each lot will" be reviewed'by her
board and the. Conservation
Commission. By law, there can be
no increase in runoff on each lot,
During discussion, Lindholm
pointed out the water department
won't let proponents put in side-
walks by the water department land
by Ainsworth Road. Lindholm
added he suggested sidewalks there
to minimize impact to the wetlands.
Tom DcLctter of Pineridge Road, Wilmington
returned to his elementary school recently for a bit
of art work. Now a graduate of the Art Institute of
Boston, he painted several murals in the gymnasium
of the Woburn Street School. Tom works for a
silk-screen company in Salem.

The Wilmington Water & Sewer
Commissioners are pondering a"
change in record keeping. They
received, last week, a proposal for
a computer system from the firm
of Weston & Sampson.
The proposed computer system
has geographic information and
mapping capability which will
enable it to map every houselot,
eyejey business establishment and
every unused parcel of land in
Wilmington. Water mains and
sewer mains throughout the town
will be shown. The point at which
those mains enter the building will
also be delineated.
There arc about 6,000 water
connections (services) in
Wilmington. There arc about
3,000 parcels of land, some quite
large, without buildings. Walcr

The pros and cons of a proposal
to locate a Cellular One tower on
Lopez Road were aired at
Monday's board of selectmen's
According to Town Manager
Michael Caira, a request was made
to grant an exemption from- the
zoning bylaws in order to locate
the tower on Lopez Road off
Concord Street. The Wilmington
Board of Appeals denied the
request but it was granted by the
State Department of Public
Utilities. The town then appealed
the DPU decision, said Caira, and
cellular filed its own appeal. The
appeals are now at the Supreme

man David Burnett told selectmen,

from each other, as well as close to
1-93. He said the site on Lopez
Road was deemed the best spot for
the tower since it met all the

Shawsheen Tech awarded state funds
Shawsheen Tech has been awar-
ded $2,709,955 in state funds as
reimbursement for previously
approved bond issues. The SBAB
(School Building Assistance
Bureau) grant will provide 65
percent reimbursement for two
bond issues for recent building
renovations and a 1987 roof
repair. Under the terms of the
grant, Shawsheen Tech will receive
$286,841 per year from FY'92
through FY 96 and S255.150 per
year from FY 97 through FY
The grant will pare about
$43,000 from Wilmington's
assessment in FY 1992, according
to committee treasurer John Gillis.
The town's assessment, however
will rise due to other factors,
including a cut in slate aid and
changing enrollment figures.
Gillis told this paper die award is
the direct result of efforts by Supl/
Director Charles Lyons;-who met
with the state Department of
Education to free up SBAB funds
and change legislative language
allowing the awarding of funds
prior to January, 1991. The de-
partment approved the grant at its
December 18 meeting. Shawsheen

from 190 to 150 feet; to provide
the police and fire departments
with antenna and equipment space
and electrical and backup gen-

alternate locations proposed by the
town; and to construct a self
support tower without guy wires.
They also agreed to erect a testing
tower at 150 feet for visibility to
show how the tower would fit into
the chosen neighborhood.
Selectmen explained though the
tower would be in an industrial
zone, it could be seen by residents
living a few hundred yards away
across the railroad tracks. Bob
Cain said it might be worth the
effort to find a better location, such
as on the new water tower in the
town forest. That tower is by
conservation land and it would
reportedly require an act of

Selectman Dan Ballou was against
the whole proposal.
" I don't think this project
enhances the, town of Wilm-
ington...and I care about the way
our town looks," he said.
Selectmen Chairman J Bob Dou-
cette told fellow members he didn't
have a problem with it and he
preferred to settle the matter out of
court in the interest of saving
money. Burnett said he, too,
preferred to work cooperatively
with the town. He promised the
company would try to minimize
the tower's height by planting trees
■ around it. Afterward, Burnett told
this paper it would be difficult to
start over in anothcj location. He
said his company has a lease
agreement for the land and has
been paying -rent for the last year.
In addition, if they had to change
their plans, Cellular One could be
working on the project for another
two years.he said.
Selectmen asked Burnett to work
with Caira in erecting the
temporary tower so officials and
neighbors could visualize what it
woud look like. Area residents will
be notified of the exact date when
Ihe tower would be in place and
also the date of a later public
hearing on the whole issue.
A contract has been signed by the
Board, of Water & Sewer
Commissioners of Wilmington and
the engineering firm of Fay,
Spofford & Thorndikc, for the
repair of a sewer main in the
railroad right-of-way, near the
town farm bridge in Wilmington.-
The commissioners signed January
Engineers, some weeks ago
discovered that a "dip" existed in
the sewer. They had opened up the
sewer and floated a camera
"Quality Backed by a Desire to Please"
downstream IO discover the dip.
This led to a controversy with the
Conservation Administrator of
Wilmington who maintained that
there should have been a public
hearing before the sewer was
opened. Chairman Arthur Smith
then discussed the controversy wilh
a town manager.
There will probably be no
controversy in this repair job.
Engineers from Fay, Spofford &

Back before the days of World War 1 the Sultan of Turkey was an
ally of Germany and Austria. The Sultan of Turkey ruled from the
Black Sea to the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea, as well as what is
now Egypt, in North Africa. Before that the Turks had ruled
Greece, Mediterranean Islands, and what is now Yugoslavia.
Part of the lands ruled by Turkey included what is now Israel,
and Jerusalem. Three of the principal religions of the world would
meet in Jerusalem.
For many centuries differences of religion have led to wars. Such
was the case where Turkey ruled over Jewish and Christian holy
World War 1 to many people is a history of fighting in the

area at the head of (he Persian Gulf, by a British Army whose
name the wrier has forgotten.

Now ruled by Saddam Hussein, Iraq differs from other Muslem
countries. Saddam has poison gas, and is believed to have used it to
kill 10,000 of his subjects. He has pressed for development of
nuclear weapons, and the possibility of his having them frightens
many people. In other words, he is not a nice guy.

Saudi Arabia has a "thought police" organization. The women of
Saudi Arabia do not expose any parts of their bodies, other than
their eyes, to the ga'.c of mankind.
Oh, yes, the National Geographic has had nice stories, by
American female writers, of life for woman kind in Saudi Arabia.
Twice, during the past four or five weeks, this writer has read of
the Saudi "thought police" striking women with whips, and not
gently, because the heels of their shoes were visible.
That doesn't seem to be the rule in Iraq. Possibly it is because of

School consolidation: a
matter of dollars and sense
by Paul Sullivan
For the past two years we have been told by that we are in for
tough financial limes. These warnings have come from both the
leaders of Tewksbury and Wilmington. As a result of this, we have
heard the horror stories of how our educational system is going to
be devastated. During this time we have seen our elected officials
work within the present educational system and take steps that
would attempt to prioritize our programs and cut waste out of the
Their actions, though laudable, are simply not going lo be
enough. It is time that our elected officials take steps that are not
within the present system. Further, towns can not solve their
problems alone. It is time thai Tewksbury and Wilmington got
together and solved their budget problems together, and
consolidate certain educational programs.
The first program I would consolidate is the two high schools.
The present enrollment of both schools do not merit having two
full schools. Two full schools means two full administrators, two
cafeterias, two buildings to heat, two heads of each department and
so on. Now I know lhat there is going to be reluctance to break the
long standing tradition of parochial school systems. But isn't it
more important to have a first class system that to maintain a long
out-dated system of parochial education?
Just imagine for a minute taking all the monies that are saved and
putting them into teachers salaries and to direct services to the
students. There are some shining examples of successful regional
high schools in this area. Concord - Carlisle and Acton- Boxboro
come to mind. Both schools have been cited for excellence and are
very comfortable with their set up.
This idea could lead to other innovations within the school
system. The present high school that would be abandoned due the
consolidation could be leased to a private college. This would be
particularly attractive to one of the many Boston private colleges
seeking to move out of the city for both security reasons and an
opportunity to cash in on their property td expand their
endowment. A partnership with the consolidated school would
make great strides to promoting excellence in education.
Before you discard the idea as foolhardy remember that, based
on the financial projections, both Wilmington and Tewksbury are
facing possible layoffs of their work force. Wouldn't it be a shame
to have to Jay off some of the good young teachers that are in both
school system when there is a real alternative.
Another advantage lhat a regional high school would have is the
consolidation of both towns would give a great pool of talent which
could be called on for educational advocacy. Not to mention the
fact that the new regional school committee would most likely be
made up of members of the present school committees. Not to
sound mushy but I can't think of a better pool of people to call on
to initiate such an ambitious plan.
I hope someone takes this theory seriously, because there is one
sure way to have our education system go downhill and that is to
One thing I haven't figured out. What am I going to do
Thanksgiving morning? *"
by Kevin John Sowyrda
This is the week I declare war... on the Registry of Motor
My grief with them goes back to the early days when I would
watch Registrar McGlaughlin, Ed King's appointee and a
retired army general, lecture us through television ads about
some new registry requirements. But you couldn't really
understand'what the registrar was saying as his numerous
jowels prohibited his proper pronounciation of English.
I didn't have a car at the time so that was the only irratation
the Registry could provide me — dumb commericials.
Then came the punishments of adulthood, chief among them
dealing with the Registry.
When I voted for a new governor this year I had one mandate
in mind — abolish the Registry. The Registry doesn't work.
It bothers all of us. It stinks to high Heaven, actually.
This week I'm declaring war.
My registration expires at month's end and its time to pay
more cash to the registrar, now a rather amiable fellow named
Some say Hutchinson is the perfect guy for the Registry and
that he's instituted an array of reforms.
I disagree. Hutchinson is much too nice a guy to be working
at the Registry. He's not at all nasty enough and doesn't have
half the jowels of old General McGlaughlin.
Anyway, my new registration is roughly fifty bucks, plus
paying up on the parking tickets I own Ray Flynn.
First, I stand by my parking tickets in Boston and am proud
of them. In the true spirit of Gerry D'Amico I willingly
parked at meters without filling them with quarters. And even
if I did plug in a bucks worth the red arrow would reach zero
long before my business in town was done. But the meters are
made to do just that so that the Hub may extract a quick fifteen
bucks from your pocket.
And state law says that if you don't pay within 21 days a
fifteen dollar ticket can become a 35 dollar ticket.
In the North End they call that Mafiosa loansharking. ■
At the Registry one clerk called it, "General Law Chapter 90,
section such and such".
It's all part of the game. You bust people at every turn so
[that keeping a car on the road becomes prohibitive at best.
Anyway, my declaration of "war involved fighting with
pennies. To show my contempt for a state and Registry which
increasingly makes driving a car financially forboding, I
called to sec what would happen if I showed up at the Registry
office in nearby Reading and paid my registration fee in
"State law says we don't have to take them. People have tried
that before," said the clerk on the other end of the phone.
So much for that idea. I lost this battle.
But the continual headaches of the Registry of Motor
Vehicles should make us ask why we have one in the first
Why do we have to rc-rcgistcr our cars annually?
What gives this state government the right to rape me
annually of about fifty bucks to keep my car on the road?
Why do licenses expire every four years? Why is it so much
to get a new one? Why do we pay a "penalty" of five bucks
when we register our vehicles in person as.opposed to by
We all pay tolls, a prohibitive gas tax, obnoxious insurance
rates, and God knows what else.
It's all reached the breaking point for middle-class
While Governor Bill Weld is still in his reformer mode
(having just proposed abolishing the Metropolitian District
Commission) he might take a quick look at the Registry on
behalf of all of us.
It's time to abolish the Registry.
The entire concept of the Registry is bad because it's
bvercentralization at it's best. A better idea would be a
complete breakup and localization of all Registry services.
Licenses could be issued locally, and instead of renewal being
required once every four years the time should be extended to
something more like ten. As for registration, that should
occur once. Period. Until you sell it or get a new car your
registration business will be done.
The annual budget for the Registry is $300 million. This
money could be divided proportionally among the 351 cities
and towns to supplement the new administrative costs
accompanying localized motor vehicle registry services.
A plan to abolish the registry comes up on Beacon Hill each
year, usually from the desk of State Representative Peter
Blute. In past years it's been ignored as reactionary.
But in this year of reform a new proposal to get rid of
Registry headaches could have broad base political and
Briefly in politics ...
Rep. Jim Miceli's demise as the local member of the Ways
and Means Committee may be only half his woes. Miceli's new
committee chairman will be his long time foe on Beacon Hill
Rep. Kevin Blanchette (D - Lawrence). Blanchette chairs
the Committee on Public Service and first came to
loggerheads with Miceli over the special retirement bill for
Tewksbury Building Inspector George Nawn.
Ironically, House Speaker Charles Flaherty, who
stripped Miceli of his State House powers this week,
contributed $1,000 to the Miceli re-election campaign in 1990.
The freshmen Republican reps are still awaiting their
committee assignments from Minority Leader Peter Foreman.
Cheryl Layne Busch, a member of the Tewksbury
Planning Board, is said to be considering a run for selectman.
One Busch supporter said, "Cheryl is a known quantity and a
New Register of Probate Donna Lambert is taking on the
old boy network in Middlesex County, and the old boy
network is taking on Donna Lambert. No sooner did Lambert
take the oath of office that she received a terse memo that her
salary would be $49,266.54. Chief Admininistrative Justice
Arthur Mason has legal control over the payroll at
Lambert's office and axed her pay immediately. Lambert's
predecessor, Tom Larkin, had been paid $57,000 annually.
Said Lambert, "The old boy network in the county is going to

Warm winter so far
All of us should be very grateful
to Mother Nature for giving us a
very warm winter so far. We have
only had short spells of real cold
days. But on the whole the
temperature has cooperated in
keeping our heating bills low. For
those on the fuel program, it is a
God send. With the drastic cut in
the allotments this year many more
would have run out of money. That
was helped by not only the
unseasonably warm weather but
also the cut back in the price of oil

The Wilmington Council of
Churches, at its meeting of January
10, unanimously agreed to issue a
call for all in our community to
offer continual prayers for peace
in the Middle East, given die grave
international crisis and the
possibilities of a devastating war in
that part of the world.
The call was shared from many
Wilmington pulpits on Sunday,
January 13, along with an
announcement of the Council's
support of a 12 hour prayer vigil
for peace, which was being planned
by the congregation of St.
Elizabeth's Episcopal Chapel. The
vigil was held at St. Elizabeth's on .
Tuesday, Jan. 15, the day of the
United Nations and U.S. supported
deadline for Iraqi withdrawal fiom
Kuwait. To show their desire for
peace, and their support of the
vigil, clergy from many
Wilmington Churches participated
in the prayer vigil services along
with St. Elizabeth's vicar, the Rev.
Tansy Chapman. Members of the
other churches were also invited to
attend the prayer vigil.
Many at the Council meeting
where the call to prayer was
adopted expressed great concern
for me devastating consequences of
a Middle East war on our world.
Council members recalled Biblical
passages which call us to be
peacemakers, and to lilt our
prayers to God, as well as the
Prayer of St. Francis of Assissi
which begins "Lord nuke me an
instrument of they peace: Where
hate rules, let me bring love..."
A pamphlet given to worshipers
at the vigil expressed the views of
many who participated as well as
the position of the sponsors. It
read, "A vigil for peace is not a
political statement, but a statement
of faith. Wc conic to pray to our
God, the God of Abraham and
Sarahs Isaac aiuPRckk.-ih', Jacob
and Rachel: The God of the"
Hebrews, the" God of the
Christians, the God of the
Moslems. For all our roots return
to 'Abraham. In solidarity with
people everywhere who desire
peace, we* pray for God to
intervene in the current crisis in
the Middle Fast. We do not ask a
military victory, but a
reconciliation. God's victory.

A little bit of nostalgia
Last week a customer came in to
our store and recognized one of
our meat cutlers. She asked Bob if
he had worked in another store.
Bob said yes and he mentioned
where he had last worked and she
said no, that wasn't it. She asked if
he had ever worked at Stevens'
Market. Wc were both surprised
that she remembered, because it
was at least 25 years ago that Ste-
vens' Market closed. (For those of
you who arc new to town, Stevens'
Market was located across from
Silver Lake where the pharmacy is

Stevens since he was about 12

almost 47 years ago... Bob was
ahead of me at the old W.H.S....

Sixth grade art classes and the
Library/Media center are partici-
pating in a cooperative program
for sixth grade students. Mr. Ro-
berts and Mrs. Mott are directing
this project which includes seeking
information and using it in indivi-
dual creative projects.
The purpose of the program is to
give the students experience in
finding country information and
translating it into a travel poster
made by each student. The student
will ultimately have experience in
logo design and lettering, plus the
creative experience of illustrating a
popular symbol or scene from the
country of their choice.
Students must use the school
library first and seek information
on their individual countries by
using the card catalog to seek
books, the magazine indpft to find
magazine articles with illustra-
tions, and vertical file folders to
find consular material with pic-
tures from foreign lands.
The vertical file has been
developed in the library only
during the last few years. Its
availability will prepare the
students for high school as the high
school media center has an
extensive vertical file system.
New student volunteersjn the
library are Melissa Ings and
Stephanie Poloian. Stephanie is Ihe
periodical and serials clerk. She
keeps track of items that arrive
daily and need to be entered in the

steps and entire driveway were a
sheet of ice. I watched as my
mother ventured to her car to clean
it off. She looked like a
two-year-old, tip-toeing toward
her destination. It took her quite a
long time to actually reach the car.
Now my point is this If it takes an
adult a few minutes to reach a point
that is normally seconds away (and
they fear their own safety), can you
imagine sending.littlc children to a
bus stop that may be a quarter of a
mile away? Not. only is it
dangerous, but getting on the bus
and trusting it to get you to school
isn't easy cither. For all of the

I feel that anyone reading this
paper who can't see the
"backroom" politics being
promoted by Kevin Sowyrda and
his sidekick, Arlene Surprenant,
really has to be asleep. What really
bothered me during the last few
weeks were a couple of cheap shots
at exrSelectman McCoy.
First of all, Arlene's "cute"
remark during her wrapup stating
that Bob Cain should have spare
parts in case he runs into a former
Town Seleciman(guess who?) and,
secondly, in your 1990 year-end
review: "Charges dropped and then
reinstated." against McCoy. The
judge also found against Cain. In
other words, this new judge treated
Cain and McCoy in the same
fashion. She found sufficient facts
against both of them You
deliberately left this out. This is
fraudulent on the Crier's part.
This is the same Kevin Sowyrda
who told us that during his ill-fated
campaign for State Representative
that the Shawshccn Tech needed a
dress code, but neglected to tell us
that he answered candidate
questionnaires stating that he was
for gay rights and against limiting
sex and violence on cable T.V. This
wouldn't be important, except that
he made a big deal about the dress
I won't bother with Surprenant
because Firefighter Welsh did an
outstanding job relative to that
issue last week. In other words
Kevin^and Arlene: Don't use the
newspaper to do your personal
dirty work. Don't give McCoy any
special breaks, but give him the
same fair share you gave Cain.
Don't forget, a lot of people made
pre-judgements on the Stuart Case,
and look How that turned out.
p.s. I hear that Sowyrda is a
candidate for this April's election.
Why is he allowed to write on a

Bathing with soap may be an ac-
ceptable practice for people with
oily skin, but it is to be avoided by
those with normal, dry or sensitive
skin. The reason for this caution is
that soap usually has a high alka-
line pH which is more than likely to
strip away the skin's natural mois-
ture. As a result, skin can be left
feeling dry and irritated. A more
suitable bathing product for those
with normal, dry or sensitive skin
is a bath or shower gel. Far from
being a mere bar soap formulation
in liquid form, a bath gel usually
consists of surfacants (which lift
dirt) and skin softening agents.
Another advantage of a bath gel is
its ability to lather better and
longer than soap. It also docs not
leave a bathtub ring.
