• Kathy Coyle of Maple Street was given a special recognition at a meeting of the Third Middlesex Area Democrats on Saturday, March 12, in Lexington. She was cited for her creative "Burma Shave"-type signs supporting John Kerry in the 2004 election as well as her courage in maintaining them. Several examples of the signs and pictures of them along the road decorated the room. About 70 people, including Representative Cory Atkins, Senator Susan Fargo and U.S. Representative John Tierney, braved the snow storm to attend the brunch. The Third Middlesex Area Democrats is a coalition of Democrats in all the towns of Senator Fargo's district.
