1. Update from Doug Lack: “Yesterday I saw my surgeon,(PA) actually, and I was given the go-ahead to do outpatient PT. (I start Friday morning.) Today I was released from VNA care!

A favorite among High School students, C&R Hot Dogs is set to shut down on Wednesday.
After almost 2 years of lunch specials, stuffed potatoes and a 50-topping menu, Holliston's C&R Hot Dogs is set to close its doors for good on Wednesday. Carl Damigella, owner of the popular lunch spot, said he will shut down amid personal health concerns, and an inability to stay on his feet throughout the work day. "I have had six back surgeries, and standing up for that length of time is not doing me any good," Damigella said. Featuring $5 lunch specials, C&R is known as a meeting ground for Holliston residents and a place for students to grab a quick lunch. A former selectman and current President of Holliston Pantry Shelf, Damigella said C&R was another way to serve his community. Doug Lack, a Holliston High art teacher in need …

On Opinion: Bullard Farm Grounds Are Irreplaceable Thomas Gilbert said: I read comments from people who ask what all the fuss is about or say grow up or change happens. What would you say to people who would want to destroy Paul Revere's house to construct an office tower or eliminate Old North Chruch because we need more parking. The Bullard Farm is Holliston's Paul Revere House and its Old North Church and it is an important part of its history as well as Sherborn, Millis, and Medway.
