Video Segment: Board of Selectmen Discuss Naming Public Assets

The Board of Selectmen discussed a proposed policy for naming public assets such as buildings, parks, squares, streets and other forms of community property. Town Manager Norman Khumalo mentioned that naming Public Assets will only be done sparingly and for good cause. "The consideration for the town will be does the name serve the interest of the town and does it ensure a worthy and enduring legacy for the towns public assets."

The policy lists specific guidelines such as giving priority to names that have a geographic, historical or cultural significance to the town or have a civic or financial contribution to the town. Much of the discussion on the topic was about if names should be approved by a majority or super majority but the Selectmen approved the policy as amended.

The holidays are here, and with them comes good cheer. And lots of food. But it's important to remember that what we eat and drink has an enormous impact on our health and well-being. So understanding how food affects our health is important. That doesn’t mean occasional comfort food or a hearty meal are entirely taboo. But food does have great influence our health, and in two ways.
