Paper or Plastic?

It turns out that, indeed, plastic is indestructible

I am so p***ed!

Like so many of you, I’m diligent about always having cloth bags in my car.  I put on a smug face when I buy something in a less-evolved city and am asked “paper or plastic?”  In such cases I bring out a nice, clean, foldable bag I keep in my purse for such occasions.  I whip it out and shake it open so my fellow shoppers can see how environmentally aware I am. 

It’s written all over my face:  “I’m from Cambridge.  We are civilized.”

Banking information

The buck stops here

One of the oldest professions is banking. I write about this to explain to High School Seniors in our fair city of Cambridge. I was fortunate to obtain an interview with Lisa Scopa of the East Cambridge Saving Bank. Lisa is the vice-president of this particular bank. Lisa as it turned out was an excellent choice for an interview. She was both eager and enthusiastic to share her knowledge with me. She has been in the banking business for a total of twenty-five years.

“My grandfather opened the location in 1962,” explained Chris Kotelly, current owner of the shop, formerly called Nini’s Corner. Kotelly began working for his grandfather in the mid- 1970s, and formally took over Crimson Corner in 2006.
