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.

Week February 22-28, 2021
This Week, MCTV is featuring the work of Bret Leighton, former longtime editor and producer at MCTV, who has regretfully passed suddenly. We want to honor him for his years of dedication to the TV station and our community. Three episodes of "The Madison Show", which was produced by Leighton in 2015, are linked to the MCTV Facebook page. The show is hosted by local art legend, Rodney Madison, who tours the camera around the village of Turners Falls, as he visits friends on the street and in his shop, "Madison on the Ave". The Ave looks different these days. Now, "Texture Hair Salon" occupies 100 Avenue A, where next door a new MCTV original is being filmed. Now on it's 5th Episode, "Fabric'sCool", the instructional and anecdotal series by "Swanson's Fabric" owner, Kathryn Swanson, airs on Channel 17 on Fridays at 11:30 am.

In sports, the Turners Falls Girls play basketball against Mahar, and the Boys take on Pioneer. The past three Selectboard Meetings from Gill are now available, as is the most recent video meeting from The Police Equity and Use of Force Advisory Group. All community members are welcome to submit their videos to be aired on Channel 17, as well as featured on the MCTV Vimeo page. MCTV is always available to assist in local video production as well. Cameras, tripods, and lighting equipment are available for checkout, and filming and editing assistance can be provided.

Rest in Peace, Bret Leighton. FAT DETECTIVE LIVES!
Just wondering how other town meeting members feel after the two "practice" meetings we had to learn the technology for a remote town meeting. I'm feeling fairly confident that I'll be okay, but there seemed to be a range of abilities, largely based on differences in equipment and internet connections (I was using a Windows 10 laptop with Comcast internet). And a related question: should the goal be to get through the meeting if at all possible, or to make sure that as many members can participate as possible, even if that means postponing the meeting if too many people have problems?

I thought we voted to hold the meeting on a warm beach? ?? Seriously, I thought it went pretty well and I think we’ll be fine.

If people don’t have the connectivity or technology, you can always go to Town Hall (call, first) and use one of the Chrome laptops they have.
Got to love it. In the last couple weeks there were articles in the Greenfield Distorter how local business's have donated goodies to the hospital. They told me I COULDN"T bring in boxes of goodies for my nurses in Oncolgy. I suppose I'm not important enough. I am only a lowly patient. Stay well....

Snow Day
due to snow trash schedule will be off by a day for rest of week. Also kids get a snow day. I guess if it is not safe for some essential people to get to the physical school then kids still get a snow day even though still in remote learning.
