I was going to do Zoom, so we could see one another, but I do not know how to make Zoom private to just one person at a time, so I opted to do calls instead.

Good question

“Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?”

“The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?”

“Were you alone or by yourself?”

“Was it you or your younger brother who was killed in the war?”

“Were you present when your picture was taken?”

“Did he kill you?”

“How far apart were the vehicles at the time of collision?”

“You were there until the time you left, is that true?”

“How many times have you committed suicide?”

No confirmed COVID-19 cases in town



Town Administrator, Kristine Trierweiler, responded to a resident’s query this morning to report that “As of this am at 10:15 there are no confirmed cases.”

My guess would be that we have cases, but that they just have not been diagnosed or confirmed.

An appreciation of our town employees

town seal

An appreciation for a job well done

I have been thinking this morning about the Town of Medfield employees who provide we residents with the services that allow our lives to continue with as much semblance of normalcy as possible at all times, but most especially in these truly unsettling circumstances we are currently experiencing. Our water goes on, public safety continues to serve us, the Transfer Station even added Sunday openings, and all the town government systems continue to function, if behind a digital curtain, all so that we residents can continue our lives.

The town employees are providing essential services, so while they likely share the same unease that envelopes us all, they continue to work their jobs.  I wanted to publicly share with the Town of Medfield employees my sincere appreciation for their efforts  and to thank them.

I am extremely appreciative of what all the town employees are doing now, working under difficult circumstances – I want to let them all know just how much this one resident, one who tries hard to observe closely the functioning of the town government so as to understand it as well as possible, truly appreciates what our team of town employees are accomplishing for we residents.
