Editor's Corner

We are very pleased that the Ashland School Committee voted in January to name the new baseball field behind Ashland High in honor of SGT Joseph A. Seaman, a graduate in the class of 1965 who made the ultimate sacrifice for his Nation in Viet Nam in July 1970. Members of the community, some of whom were classmates, are planning to support the dedication ceremony over the Memorial Day weekend. Funds are being collected in order to possibly place a monument at the site, as well as a kiosk containing information about SGT Seaman.

The Snow is the Story

As with most stories, there are two sides. Some would see the new snowfall as (cold) beauty, while others see a nuisance to be endured.

At some point, many people understand it as a fact of life, sometimes mild, at other times dangerous.
