NopFarmFire1365.jpg

SALISBURY — Work was returning to normal at the Nop Brothers and Sons Farm in Salisbury this week after a big fire claimed the equipment barn off Route 7 this past Friday night. The new normal, that is, in which the family and their farm workers must take hours of extra time feeding the more than 600 cows they milk each day.

WALTHAM — One key reason for the dramatic growth of Waltham’s Victory Baptist Church was probably already in place when Pastor Tim Taylor and his wife, Sandy, arrived in 1988.

A few years before, the members of the 19-year-old church had bought an antique shop and several acres on top of Woodman Hill, right on Route 7.

Services at the former shop were drawing about 30 to a church that was founded in 1969 and earlier had gathered in the Bixby Library, the Weeks School chapel and in Ferrisburgh’s Union Meeting Hall before buying its new home.
