Clippings: Family in no hurry to empty the nest

Posted on May 19, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

It seems like eons ago, but I can remember my parents talking about the prospect of being empty nesters with a sense of wonderment and (gasp) anticipation. My dad spoke of converting my room into storage for his gargantuan stamp collection, while mom talked about being able to travel with less baggage (could she really have been talking about me?).

Bristol commission wrestles with language in town plan

Posted on May 19, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



 

BRISTOL — In its continuing effort to update the town plan, the Bristol Planning Commission on Tuesday dove into the “Resource Extraction” section of the proposed town plan and tore out a wide range of definitions from ensuing sections of the 120-page draft.
