It’s time for another open thread.

What’s on your mind this week, Southborough?

For those of you new to it, the open discussion thread is your place to ask questions, sound off on town issues, or share information with other readers. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Ask questions about programs in town or the town itself
  • Post a note about things that you’re selling or giving away, or things that you want
  • Share notices about upcoming events (Southborough or otherwise)
  • Register your thoughts on town issues or news stories
  • Point out interesting or helpful resources

You can add comments to the thread throughout the week. Check back often to see new comments. (If you read the blog via email or RSS, you might want to check the site from time to time for new comments.)

While driving around town, I noticed how many residents (transfer station stickers give them away) drive on our narrow streets with reckless abandon. Middle Road, Mt. Vickery, Breakneck Hill, just to name a few. When I was a young kid living on Parkerville south, people drove slowly, knowing that kids were near or in the street. Now everyone just flies around. I spent 28 years on the Southborough Fire Department. I helped pull people, dead and alive from countless wrecks. My son now does the same thing. PLEASE SLOW DOWN!
