Editorial: Main Street Alliance Delivers Citizens Petition to the Office of Hopkinton Town Manager regarding Main Street Corridor Project

Today, members of the Main Street Alliance delivered our original citizens' petition to the office of the Hopkinton Town Manager, with a copy also hand delivered to the office of the Town Clerk. The petition has over 350 signatures. We will continue collecting signatures.

The purpose of the petition is to address the Main Street Corridor Project by having a Special Town Meeting. Our group, the Main Street Alliance, does not support the project as it is presently designed.

We look forward to the town scheduling a special town meeting as required by law.

The Main Street Alliance extends its thanks to the community for the overwhelming support we have received on this very important issue. If you would like to sign the petition, or contact us about other matters, we can be reached at

New Show: Toon Time

If you're of a certain age, you remember spending Saturday mornings in your pajamas, eating cereal and watching cartoons on TV while Mom & Dad slept in. It was wonderful, and it's back! John Ritz is the producer for a new show on HCAM, Toon Time! He found a ton of public domain cartoons (mostly from the 30s & 40s), then we assembled them into one hour shows.

Toon Time airs Saturday mornings at 8:00. Please spread the word, then tune in (with a big bowl of cereal!) and enjoy the show.
