Within about six weeks, town expects to be offering meeting minutes and agendas online.
The town expects to begin regularly posting minutes and agendas from its various board and committee meetings, reported Town Administrator Bill Gustus at Monday night's selectmen's meeting. Gustus told selectmen and others at the meeting that some of the minute-takers at the various meetings still have training to undergo in the coming days and that Lynnfield has been working with Virtual Town Hall on the task. In about 4 to 6 weeks, he added, around the time the new fiscal year begins, the meeting agendas and minutes are expected to start appearing consistently on the town website. At the outset, the focus will only be forward-moving, but in time, the project will also apparently include meeting minutes from prior years.

Former high school teacher Pat Conaway sees real hope in the young people who help him clean the area's trails, waterways and roadways.
Pat Conaway admits that he's "kind of a nut" about the environment, so when he retired from teaching in 2008, it didn't take long for him to find a number of productive ways to spend his time. "I wanted to get people fired up about the environment, to try to encourage citizens to get involved locally," said Conaway, founder of Big Hearts, Little Feet.

From beer cans to soda and coffee cups, trash tossed by the roadside washes into local rivers and, if left alone, eventually finds its way to the ocean, where scientists have found plastic…
