Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. John Dewey

Cable competition still looms despite pullback in other townsAlthough Verizon is breaking off contract talks in other communities around Massachusetts, Duxbury is still scheduled to get FiOS Internet service, according to the chairman of the Duxbury Cable Advisory Committee. The issue had been a hot topic around town in recent months as negotiations with Comcast over a new cable contract have dragged on. Having FiOS cable TV and Internet would give Duxbury residents an option. Bill Kearney, chairman of the Cable Advisory Committee, said that Verizon had indeed gone through a list of communities where they wereBy Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

scheduled to install the fiber optic cables necessary to bring in the service. Despite the fact that the company is still in negotiations with Verizon, Duxbury was not cut, Kearney said. Although the town does not have an agreement yet with Verizon, Kearney believes that the company has already done too much work installing cables and other infrastructure in Duxbury to pull out.

Some legislators bring in sixfigures away from Beacon HillBy Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

In the Massachusetts legislature, lawmakers are paid what many would consider full-time wages $61,439.76 for the 2009-2010 legislative year, according to Beacon Hill Roll Call yet senators and representatives are not prevented from having jobs away from Beacon Hill. In fact, some Duxbury legislators earn six-figure salaries in their

other jobs. Some say outside work can detract from time spent on state business. Others say that having a career away from Beacon Hill can provide perspective. Duxburys lawmakers were split on the issue. Representative Tom Calter, whose district includes Duxbury, said he believes in legislators having careers away from Beacon Hill as long ascontinued on page 4
