Honey takes patience

Howard Crawford puts together some great wildflower honey at the Akin-Bak Farm here in Franklin. The values of a good honey are multiple and well written about. I'll leave that for others to focus on. You can find some of that here and here. You can get a jar of honey at the Farmers Market. I like to add dribbles of it to good bread that has been lightly toasted. Hmm, good!

Honey takes patience. Working with the bees can be a challenge but the output is well worth it.

What else takes patience? Putting together a coordination among several communities to centralize the dispatch functions for public safety. This is one of the several items on the Town Council agenda coming up with the meeting on Wednesday, Jun 20. Franklin may get together with Norfolk, Plainville and Wrentham. The communities have spent time over the past year to work out the details and are now looking for each town board to request a home rule petition from the Legislature.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Town Council requests Representative Vallee to introduce the attached Home Rule Petition for prompt consideration by the State Legislature.
With Rep Vallee's announcement that he has stepped down from his House seat earlier than anticipated, it will be interesting to see if this needs to wait until the November election, or if it can move forward anyway

Either way, more patience and hard work remains!
