2. Quote Of The Day: "It's very impressive, to say the least," THMS Senior Nick Hamilton, talking about the new Tewksbury Memorial High School, which opened this week.
3. Reader Comment of the Day: "I don't have a problem with a Code Red telling me that the phones are down for the emergency services. That makes sense. Be grateful - Billerica sends them out a number of times a day from the DPW telling when water may be interrupted or when construction is going on at a school on a Sunday. I get code red's on my phone for a 5 mile radius from where I am at the time - I get them every time I drive through Billerica. THAT is a waste." Reader named "Comment," commenting on the story, "Fire Causes Thousands of Verizon Customers To Lose Phone, Internet Service."
