The flags didn't meet Town Bylaws, but do you think they should have stayed?
If things look differently driving down Chelmsford Street, one possible explanation might be the removal of the flags in front of Moonstone (pictured). Last week the Chelmsford Planning Board discussed the issues of the bylaws (fast forward to approximately the 50:00 mark), but today we want to hear what you think. Should the sign bylaws be changed in this case? Or does it help the aesthetics of the area? Tell us what you think in the comments!

We want to know what you think. Tell us in the comment section.
Today we remember those who died in the September 11 attacks and their families. In the past 11 years much has changed, but are we any safer? The attacks served as the starting point for the War on Terror which sent millions of men and women into battle, drastic changes in security, economic affects, cultural and foreign policy changes. The day also marked the start of a manhunt, the arrests of several al Quaeda members, and eventual capture of Osama bin Laden. Today, we reflect on what happened on that horrific morning and all that has happened since. We want to know what you think: Is America a safer place today?

One restaurant in L.A. is offering a 5 percent discount to patrons who ditch their phones during their meal. Would you like to see this around here?
Face it, if there were a way to grow a third arm specifically to hold your cell phone, many of us would jump at the chance. But running counter to the "can't live without a connection" population is one restaurant in Los Angeles that is paying customers to keep their phones away from their meal, according to the Los Angeles Times. Eva Restaurant in L.A. is offering diners a 5 percent discount on their bill if they dump their digital devices before being seated, according the L.A. Times. Is this something that you'd like to see happen at any of the nice restaurants around here? Or does the idea of ditching your phone during dinner start to make you twitch?

Should happy hour come back to Massachusetts?
Is happy hour coming back to the Bay State? The 28-year-old “happy hour law” now banning bars and restaurants from pouring free, discounted or two-for-one alcoholic beverages in area restaurants may be updated so restaurants can compete with casinos that may one day be in the state. As part of the ban, cities and towns now rule that a beverage must be priced the same for each calendar week and two drinks can only be served per person at a restaurant. In addition, pitchers of alcohol can only be served to two or more people, according to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission. The ABCC will hold a hearing in Boston on Aug. 21. Four other hearings will be held throughout the state to gain public feedback. According to an article in the …
