The Lamp Post

‘Tis the season: Although the city has no preliminary election this year (leaving only the November final vote), campaign signs are starting to pop up on lawns in neighborhoods across the city. Campaign literature from candidates is also beginning to show up in mailboxes. As we get closer to the November vote, look for many more signs and mailings to appear.

:It’s also their season: As temperatures drop and we edge closer to winter, the first groups of Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Colorgeese are heading to warmer climates. Lately, the Lamplighter has noticed the birds honking in the distance as theyText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Color fly south.

About time: It’s good to see the parking lot at the the Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Colorold Friends Landing nightclub finally getting cleaned up. For years after the club was torn down, the lot has been dotted with cracked pavement, Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Colorpiles of debris and overgrown shrubs. But now that the owner of the property plans a Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Colorcondo development there, workers are cleaning up the site, a prime location along the Merrimack River.

Never to be forgotten: Schools across Haverhill had events to mark the recent Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Coloranniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, but one in particular stood out — probably because it was in clear view of the public. Students at Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText ColorNettle Middle School used small U.S. flags to spell out Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText Color“9-1-1’’ on the grassy hill in front of their school. The display caught the eyes of many passersby on Text ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/SolidText ColorSwatch/NoneStrokeStyle/$ID/Solid$ID/NothingText ColorText Color$ID/NothingText ColorText ColorBoardman Street.
