Looking For Bike Parts
Hey all. The Montague Soapbox Race is back on this coming September, and my buddy Ben Goldsher is entering a cart for Hawks & Reed. He has enlisted the help of Ben Mailloux of Half Pint Homes to build it, and we’re looking for a used bike. Willing to pay, but a donation would be accepted as well. Any kind of bike will do, though a kids bike with foot brakes would be higher up our wish list.

Also, if any one out there wants to enter a cart, too, or maybe be a sponsor of some kind (the race is a fundraiser for Parks & Rec), you can check out https://MontagueSoapboxRaces.com for more info.

There will also be a race in Greenfield the Sunday before. https://GreenfieldSoapboxRaces.com If you’re building a cart, you may as well race in both.

Or… give us you’re unused kids bike. :-)

New homeowners in Montague Center are hoping to remove a garage to open a view from the house. Garage itself is in good condition, and could be reassembled elsewhere or wood/etc from it could be used for other projects. One end is attached to what used to be an outside wall of the house. One corner on that wall has a complicated intersection of the garage roof and gable with the roof of a screen porch. Anyone with the expertise to do it would be welcome to decouple the garage from the house and remove the garage in exchange for taking it for themselves. (If appropriate, the same person could be hired to refinish the newly exposed sections of roof and add several windows.) Text 4136873088

Seeking to borrow or rent (at a modest price) a battery-powered weed whacker or brush cutter (hand-held type, not mower style). Needs to come with two batteries, so one can charge while the other is in use. I'll need it for 2 or 3 days.

Also interested in buying one of these used, if in excellent working condition!

Taylor Rental in Greenfield does not rent battery-operated versions of these tools.

Thanks for any leads!

I didn't know him well, but I remember him as someone who was willing to show up if something needed to be done. I enjoyed our chats when I'd pass him on his porch on my walks through town. I'm grateful to have known him.

I have been a Town Meeting member for over twenty years, and I am up for re-election this year. I thought I had done what was necessary for my name to appear on the ballot, but I guess there was a slip-up somewhere because my name is not there.

You can vote for seven people, and there are six names on the list. Please consider writing me in: Michael Naughton, 11 S Lyman St, Millers Falls. I would be grateful for the opportunity to continue to have a voice in the affairs of the town, and to represent the interests of Precinct 2 and the entire town to the best of my ability.

Thank you very much for your support.

Does anyone know if there are summer jobs around here for 14- year olds? I know years ago they could work tobacco (and buses even came by some places to pick them up), but that was a while ago. Wondering what the current situation is. Thanks in advance for any information.

These lovely kids have been ringing my bell and running for quite some time now. Unfortunately I’m the victim of a vicious rape and having someone ring my bell sends shockwaves of terror through me and nightmares for days. They live somewhere down by FL Roberts. Thank you.
