Crash with summons, 62 Norfolk; car versus pole. Eddy Perez of RI for negligent operation and an unregistered car (saves a little money for the insurance company).

Traffic complaint, Green; caller stuck at the light in RED mode (look on bright side: it's GREEN for everyone else)..

Complaint, Pinecrest; water ponding on front lawn. Determined not to be sewage or oil. Water Dept shut off service.

I am in love with a donkey named Ernest but he lives too far away from Winter st to be him. I am so glad he would be home safe and sound. Life is good in Holliston except for the drivers who come to town to mess with the good people. Jealousy will get you nowhere. Sorry out of towers.
