2009 - An Orwellian Play
It all began in 2008...

Falmouth Residents Share Views on Local Issues
During the intense lead-up to the recent election, local TV producer Kevin Lynch and I spent some time at the post offices and athletic fields around town soliciting comments on the High School construction. What I found was that citizens are more than willing to share their thoughts. I went back out over the last couple of weeks and asked our friends and neighbors what they think about things in general.
Some old and some new things I'd like to do and see in Falmouth this Summer...
- I'd like to see what all the buzz (or hum) is about with these cicadas (or is it cicadae?). When they come around again, I'll be 56 and far less adventurous. So while they are abundant and an easy find, I'm going to enjoy a few with some chocolate sauce. I'll let you know how it turns (stomach included) out.
When I bought my commercial shellfishing license towards the end of the May 31 deadline, the number of my license caught my attention. It was low. In years past, if I waited this late to fork over the $200 to the town, the number was close to six hundred. Instead this year, it was about half of that.
Where else would you rather be on a Wednesday night in June?

The memories and images are legendary in Falmouth lore. Hundreds - no thousands - of beer-soaked patrons leaving the two mainstays of the Falmouth Heights night scene at closing time - The Casino and the Brothers Four - sprinkling laughs, smiles, and plenty else on the neighborhood. Putting up with the revelers was seen as an annual cost of doing business, a raison d'etre for the tourism industry in Falmouth.
