Right direction

I know Mayor Zanni runs his campaign with transparency. As a member of the sons of Italy when I see him he looks right through me like I’m not even there — not even a hello. The other night he showed up on my doorstep like a long-lost friend smiling and reminding me to get and vote. Well, thank you, I am. It’s for Jennifer Kannan. She will take Methuen in the right direction, not some phony looking for votes.

Need limits

Are you kidding me? Trick or treating until 11 p.m. like in the olden days? In the area I live, which is the Methuen-Lawrence line, I would have to take out a loan to buy the amount of candy I give out to the large number of groups knocking on my door on Halloween. Today, the regulated two hours the towns suggest is the best for the safety of all.


We drove down Main Street in Andover Sunday and enjoyed looking at the Halloween art decorating the street. I glanced at a sign and it seems that students at Doherty Middle School — I did not see other schools named but others may have contributed to this display — created the Halloween stuffed, life-sized, scary, funny and amusing decorations. Great job, students! Thank you for adding some Halloween personality to the look of Main Street. You made us smile!
