Elizabeth Cook, Tim Carroll opens

In 2011, Elizabeth Cook was asked to participate in Strawberry Music Festival's Sunday morning gospel show. She reluctantly agreed, but by the time she was halfway through her set, she was surprised by how much she was moved by this music. Perhaps she shouldn't have been; it reconnected her with music that was central to her Florida upbringing. She was moved enough to record a seven song EP of some of her favorite Southern Gospel songs (well, six Gospel songs and a cover of Velvet Underground's "Jesus"). The EP, titled Gospel Plow, was released on June 12th.

This is my Blog….ain’t it great.

With the opening of a 40,000-square-foot Price Chopper this month, a commercial and retail development in Hopkinton originally approved not long before the 2008 recession took another step toward fruition.

Hopkinton Square, located just off Interstate 495 on West Main Street, was approved in 2007 to contain four buildings and 100,000 square feet of leasable retail, restaurant and commercial space.

But meeting minutes show that Joseph returned to the Planning Board in 2010 with an amended plan for a smaller development – 70,000 square feet and two buildings.
