    When I moved to Dublin 25 years ago, my assimilation wasn't as straightforward as you might think. Even though I enjoyed an extensive network of Cork relations thanks to my emigrant grandparents Madge and Bill Reardon, who settled in Cambridge as newlyweds around 1930, this counted for little.For starters, I had trouble finding work. In the summer of 1992, Ireland's celebrated Celtic Tiger economy had yet to roar, and with unemployment at 14 percent there wasn’t much call [...]

    Green Day's intentions were obvious from the start Monday night, as the Oakland trio played a warm and festive two-and-a-half hour concert to cap off the summer season at The Xfinity Center in Mansfield, before an all-ages crowd of close to 20,000 fans of all ages.The night's purpose was hinted at by the three recorded songs that have been starting every show on this 'Revolution Radio Tour,' as the iconic rocker "Bohemian Rhapsody" had the crowd up and moving immediately, and a [...]

    When your birthday falls on the day your country officially recognized women’s right to vote, you feel a particular pull to the 19th Amendment. And this year, I felt a pull to spend my birthday visiting Seneca Falls, New York, where the first convention for women’s rights was held in 1848.The beautiful town is just an hour from our house, and I had never seen the Women’s Rights National Historical Park or the National Women’s Hall of Fame.I knew the boys might [...]

    DUBLIN – A couple of weekends back I got buried in a blizzard of snowflake indignation.The human weather front responsible for my discomfort came in the form of my son, who's 19 but resembles a snowflake about as much as I resemble George Clooney. It's a trait he's picked up from his mother's side of the family and developed on the hurling pitch.Anyway, we were driving to a match and a radio item came on detailing the latest college protest by a group of students [...]

    To the Editor: If you see him, please express your thanks to Stoughton's Representative Louis Kafka for co-sponsoring H.1926, a bill "for the adoption of resolutions memorializing the Congress of the United States to convene a Constitutional Convention to consider amendments to the Constitution to limit the influence of money in our political system". This "We the People" act will elevate the issue of campaign finance reform and seeks to overturn the idea that [...]

    To the Editor:As 2017 comes to an end, I wanted to write about a special lady who became my dear friend. I first met Mrs. Denneno nearly 50 years ago when I was 12. My grandfather Peter Caradonna took me to her pizza shop and introduced me to this kind woman. He told me that he had been going there for several years to pick up pizzas on Sunday afternoons. He said that the owner was a sweetheart and that the pizza was very good. He was so right, and as the years went [...]

    To the Editor:Thanks to Senator Walter Timilty for standing with We the People to keep teeth in State Senate Bill 2243 toward eliminating "pay to play" in what's left of our democracy. S.2243 was intended to push us ahead in stopping the influence of big money on our elections. The bill's key differentiator, from past and other similar bills, was support of an amendment convention since calls to legislators, to fix what the Supreme Court broke, have fallen on deaf [...]

    (This letter is in response to, "Timilty backs clean energy bill," on Canton Wicked Local.)To the Editor:Bravo for Senator Timilty, who joined the unanimous Senate approval of Senator Pacheco’s Clean Energy bill. This bill could make Massachusetts a true leader in dealing with climate change. But prospects in the House are more difficult. Speaker Robert DeLeo, a recipient of many donations from fossil fuel companies, has been [...]

    To the Editor:As a social work student, I am troubled by the fact that Public Schools do not give off major Jewish holidays.Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter are always given off for the students to observe. However, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, two of Judaism’s largest and most important holidays are not given off.According to Stoughton attendance policy students may be excused temporarily from school attendance for [...]

     Cooperation leads to registrationTo the Editor:A cooperative effort of our High School, Town Clerk's office, League of Women Voters and Democratic Town Committee resulted in the registration of 93 new, young voters! (We, also, enlisted the Republican Town Committee and Alpha Kappa Alpha to join us but, ultimately, they were unable to do so.) This effort was started, in the Spring, and came together when it was learned that [...]

     To the Editor:Last Thursday, John Kavin dropped off over 3,000 stickers at the Stoughton Town Hall. If you were one of the many voters to receive an "I voted" American Flag sticker after voting, the Stoughton Democratic Town Committee would like to say, that is our way of saying, "Thank You For Voting!"Regardless of which candidates you supported, we believe every citizen should vote. The better our collective voice is heard, the better our future. [...]
