Two Easton teens were arrested for the alleged incident. Easton Chief says more arrests are likely.
Two teens were arrested by Easton Police Monday after allegedly robbing and assaulting another teen. Michael Bunce-Grenon, 19, of 19 Dennison Court in Stoughton was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and robbery. A 15-year-old Easton resident was arrested on the same charges. Police Chief Allen Krajcik said the incident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. near Frothingham Park. "Easton Police Officer Beverley McRoberts was on patrol when she was flagged down by a 15 year old male who stated he had just been beaten and robbed at Frothingham Park in North Easton," Krajcik said. "He stated that he was with a group of males at the park when he was attacked by several of them. Money was taken and one of the suspects pulled …

These Easton stories are out in front of Halloween
Opinion You know I have to do some sort of ghost and freaky weird column for Halloween. But I can't just leave it alone with one column. I need to do a couple this year. So, alas, we have today's column – and there will be Monday's column – two days prior to Halloween – which will also deal with spookiness. And of course all of this little bit of supernatural will have an Easton angle. So yesterday morning, I threw out on Facebook an invitation for some of my Facebook friends to share stories of things that they experienced that didn't quite jibe with what they know of the natural world. Very interesting responses. Here are some: Exhibit A – as related to me by MaryAnne (Nixon) Kondracki, my long-time friend and fellow member of the Oliver…

It Could Be The Best Time Of The Year In These Parts
This being Labor Day, and it being a big transition in the year, I figured it appropriate to write as I did last year, another September and autumn cometh column. Yet, we have about three more weeks of summer, unless you don't know. Then again, soon enough the first frost will be upon us. Today sunset here is 7:14 p.m. On the final day of this month it will be 6:27 p.m. September is a great month, one of — as I frequently tout — warm days and cool nights. And it does seem that the planet is going through a warming phase, for whatever reason. Call me selfish, but if you live in New England, I don't know if this is all a bad thing. School is back in session, and at the secondary and post-secondary level, Easton has three schools: Oliver …

Easton — What Would Our “Games” Look Like?
Yes, London can put on an Olympics. Wow!! That was just great. Absolutely great. And how about the performances of the sons and daughters of America in these games? Standout. Inspiring. Awesome. Now, of course, every Olympic Games has an individual stamp on it of the city hosting the event. The opening and closing ceremonies, the competition venues, the signage, the medals themselves, all contain something of the history, culture, and identity of the host location. Okay, so I’m thinking here — let’s say that Easton hosted some sort of international athletic competition. I mean, really, we could do it. We could scare up the dough. Get the volunteers in place. Put the Easton Lions Club on this project. What would our Easton Sports …

And a Sighting that Should Have Happened but Didn't
It was about one o’clock in the afternoon on Tuesday, and I had just walked out of the Tedeschi’s at Correira’s Plaza on Washington Street/Rte. 138. It was a sunny and warm day. And what do I spy in full gallop heading north on the sidewalk on the plaza side of the highway but a woman – yes, sprinting – while pushing a baby carriage. Now, I wouldn’t have considered that exceptional, except the woman was not in workout gear – and not wearing running shoes. After all, many parents combine workouts with pushing their children in the stroller. No, this woman, perhaps in her mid 40s, had on casual baggy shorts, and I’m not sure what type of top exactly – but on her feet she was wearing, as best I could tell, thin souled slip-on shoes…

They Are Starting To Bloom – Along With The Bushes
As I do now and then, I called an audible on this column. I was thinking for today to post the second of two parts of the tiny fiction short story that ran here last Monday. I was pleasantly surprised and appreciated very much that the story got so much attention – and I enjoyed and am thankful for the comments and reaction. I think we are looking at Thursday for part two of two. But as for today I am on the subject of trees and bushes and flowering. Last fall I did a story on foliage – and some of the best places in Easton to see the autumn foliage. Well now the buds are on the trees and the bushes – and we are going to be getting some green. This column isn’t so much about flowers, but more heavy on the trees and bushes. I’ve …
