1. Half-Staff Notice... the U.S. flag and the Commonwealth flag will be lowered to half-staff on all government buildings from sunrise to sunset on Thursday, Jan. 2 in honor of Marine Sgt. Daniel Vasselian of Abington, who died on Dec. 2013. 

2. Skating at the Crooked Spring Reservation... Thanks to Karen McHenry for these great photos! For more, head to facebook.com/CrookedSpring

3. Happy New Year From The Chelmsford Dog Association... they've got their next meeting on Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Chelmsford Police Station community room. 

4. Update on the Methadone Clinic Near the Chelmsford Border... the Middlesex Land Court has approved a deal between the city of Lowell and Habit OpCo, proprietors of a methadone clinic wanting to move just a few hundred feet from the Chelmsford border that would supercede a decision made by the Lowell Zoning Board of Appeals last year.

A new Zoning Board of Appeals hearing will be held on Jan. 13, which may also have implications on a federal lawsuit Habit OpCo had against the City of Lowell.

5. This Sunday... the Chelmsford Girls Softball Winter Clinics will take place at 5 p.m. at the Chelmsford High School main gym.

Crooked Spring pond is a beauty of a place that has not had any dam work done in years except emergency repairs. Its time to re invest in the unique open space like we did with the Town Halls. If we can invest to keep buildings we can invest to keep our open spaces. I think this pond ranks up there with Turf Fields and the Town halls as a quality of life issue. When you vote for your reps or selectman in the spring ask them how they feel about this open space issue. Join friends of Crooked Springs or COSS on facebook as they are two groups working hard to save this open space from just being a photo in a history book like so many other open spaces in town have become.
