The Dangers of Popular Gel Fuels -by Ellen Oliver
Stop, drop and roll. Everyone knows the simple and usually-effective advice for a person whose clothes catch on fire. But stop, drop and roll isn’t an effective solution for flames ignited by the gel fuels so popular in fire pots, personal fireplaces and patio torches, as demonstrated at the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy last Thursday.

Help Make Decibels (Even More) Classy- by Ellen Oliver 
  The website for the Classy Awards says, “Hollywood has Oscar, Broadway has Tony, now Philanthropy has the Classy.” A fundraising activity for a local charity, The Decibels Foundation started by Stow residents Julia and Mark Dunning, is in the running for a prestigious Classy award. Voting is now open to select the final candidates and Decibels needs your help!
Needle at Large Pt.1; Off to Punta Cana
-Ann Needle
The year 2011 is a benchmark for some childhood friends and I, with the three of us turning 50. Every 5 years, we celebrate these landmark birthdays with a girls’ trip. Bermuda and Aruba were past destinations and last week, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, had the good fortune of winning our birthday lottery.
