Starting The Updates
Hey,

I'm gonna go though today and tomorrow and change the layout and styling a bit for the site. If you see something broken or just looking weird, it'll end up being fixed shortly after. We are finally getting to the comments not working too. Hopefully we can get the site back to 100% in the next couple days.

Thanks

Pet Sitting 11/26-11/27
Hi,
This is my first post, so I hope I'm posting to the right place. I am looking for someone to host my small pet dog from Saturday morning, 11/26 to Sunday afternoon, 11/27. He is a very loving, small, people-oriented, Cavachon (King Charles Spaniel/Bichon Frise mix). I will, of course, drop off and pick up, supply meals and treats, and a stipend.
I can be reached at 413-367-6911.
Thanks,
Rob

Looking For Specific Book From B.f. Miner From The Early 1900’s
I am working on an article on former Montague Center, and later, Greenfield resident Benjamin Franklin Miner (often written as B. F. Miner), who wrote a book with formulas and a method he developed for extracting vanilla.
The book was promised through subscription only, and likely started selling in 1902. Miner lived in Montague Center from the late 1800's until early or mid-1900's.
He wrote a 16-page prospectus pamphlet containing endorsements from local banks and others who had worked with him and vouched for his upstanding reputation.
I am wondering if anyone from the area has that book in their family's library or keepsakes, which is likely a slim volume.
I spoke with Ed Gregory from the Montague Historical Society, and he found a chemist's letter describing the chemical break down of true vanilla, but it did not contain Miner's formula, nor was it written by Miner.
You can reply here, or care of editor@montaguereporter.org
Thank you so much for any information,
Jerri Higgins

Website Update
Hey all, we're finally getting back to working on this corkboard software platform. Should see some updates in the next few weeks, including less errors starting today. Contact me directly via this website if you encounter anything weird. We'll get on it.

Thanks for sticking around these 22+ plus years. The site turns 23 years old in October!

Problems With The Website
Yeah, I'm not surprised. At some point we'll take a closer look at the site software again, but we had to let staff go back in December 2020 and I've been flat out with website projects, so, no time to noodle around with the corkboard software. I'm pretty sure what the issue is (that petition was actually from another website running this software) and can fix it at some point, likely in April. Sorry folks!

Problems With This Website?
Is it just me, or has this website become kind of buggy recently? I've tried to comment on Mike Henry's announcement a few times; sometimes nothing happens, sometimes it seems to go through but then it's not there, sometimes I get an error page with "CFCATCH" at the top and then a bunch of error data. Sometimes I get the same (I think?) page when I try to log on, but then when I go back I'm logged on. Today I noticed a link in the blue box on the left to an "Impeach Bush Cheney Petition". However one feels about those guys, IMHO it's a little late now. Then I got the error again trying to log on, and now that link isn't there. Maybe it's something on my end (?). Just wondering if others are experiencing the same things.

Magpie Toby Friends
MAGPIE - Saturday – March 19 - 7:30 pm
Mount Toby Concerts - 194 Long Plain Rd. (Rte. 63), Leverett, MA

With a career that has spanned forty years, Magpie has traveled the globe, bringing its unique sound and breathtaking versatility to audiences everywhere. Award-winning recording artists, songwriters, musical historians and social justice activists, Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino always promise a presentation that is highly entertaining as well as provocative and deeply moving.

Magpie's songs touch on historical, cultural and social interests with a large selection focusing on Civil Rights and the environment. Terry and Greg's sound is that of two very strong voices, one female, one male, in powerful leads and two-part harmony, embellished by Terry's guitar, harmonica, mandolin and dulcimer. Theirs is a powerful sound, full of passion and fire.

The duo has appeared in national and international demonstrations and protest marches and rallies, sung in jails, on picket lines and churches. Their songs are used today in modern Civil Rights and environmental protection movements, especially Give Light and We Belong to the Earth, which are included in the new group singing songbook, Rise Again, along with six other of their songs.

Turners Falls -gfld
Any folks on here know of the time line for the repave job. A job that SHOULD have been done before the bridge by the Farren was closed. I took my old dude to an appt. last friday and got hung for over 25 mins. Thank goodness a call to his doctor held his appt. And Gfld wonders why people go north, south or east to shop. At least you can get there and PARK without paying. Thanks, ED

Rest Peace, John Aubry
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Montague Center resident, and our local mayor, John Aubry. When I lived there he was always around on his bicycle keeping me and others up to date on what was going on in the village, though you never heard it from him. If the basement light was on at the Grange, he would bike over and let me know. If a fire truck went by, he would dismount and salute. He was kind and gentle, a real patriot, and will be missed. I’m glad I knew you, John.

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.
