IF YOU'RE POOR MOVE TO MA!! - 11/14/2013

Great state to live in??? Anyone reviewing this state as a great place to live proves ignorance of people living here. Cost of housing totally out of control. Try to hire someone in this state for any services. Good luck if anything's done right!! Guess people out here are accustomed to accept poor workmanship on anything done. If something done to perfection, I always ask what state their from. So funny - NEVER from Massachusetts. State highways' median never groomed. Carolinas you see beautiful flowing flowers on your highways. As far as hospitality??? MA residents don't know the meaning of the word. Most rudest people out of any state I've lived in or visited. Great schools? For everyones info, yes, Harvard and MIT rated tops. Maybe because more than 50% applicants accepted not from MA. Know this for a fact - worked for a Harvard/MIT attorney who conducted the interviews. Grade schools and High Schools below par. Even in private schools - good luck. Teaching children how to tell time in 1st and 2nd grade?? Give me a break. If you are a working class person this is not the state for you. On the other hand, if you have nothing, this is the state for you. Free housing, foodstamps, medical, everything!!! Don't even have to be a citizen!! MA truly supports the whole MEDICAID system!! Come and get it - ordinary working person can't afford dental procedure but noncitizen can! State pays for it! As for someone mentioning Everett as a wonderful place to live??? Ah, is that why it's one of the most desirable places to put a casino? Doesn't that, in itself, tell it like it really is?? MA lovers - try a normal state. You wouldn't survive with you're great hospitality!! By the way, regarding private schools in MA, our great President Bush, George W., attended PHILLIPS ACADEMY in town next to me. Remember the Bushisms??? Ha, ha!!

Home Schooling Laws in Massachusetts - 11/5/2012

Can anyone answer: How favorable are the home-schooling laws in Massachux? I'm considering moving into the state, but not if they are hostile to homeschooling. Anyone have any experience with this matter? - Jimianiz

Health Care - 6/5/2012

It's expensive but top notch. Universal health care made it much easier for me to decide start a business because I didn't have to worry about whether whether my family could actually get access to health insurance.

Just too much - 4/1/2012

Love Mas and the Berkshires. Culture, scenery, proximity to so many great things but a two person income here of $80,000 is almost poverty. Housing, utilities and lack of good paying jobs are crushing this state. Lived here my whole life but getting too expensive to stay. Sad!

Clinton MA - 10/3/2011

Clinton MA is a terrific New England town bordered by Lancaster to the north, Bolton to the northeast, Berlin to the east, Boylston to the south, and Sterling to the west. It was named after the DeWitt Clinton Hotel in New York, a favorite place of the town's founders, Erastus Brigham Bigelow and his brother Horatio.The population in 2010 was 13,606. If you enjoy the historical appeal of a former mill town you may like Clinton. Clinton became a small industrialized mill town, using the Nashua River as a source for water power. Railroads came to the town to serve this industry, including the Boston, Clinton, Fitchburg and New Bedford Railroad (Fitchburg Branch of the Old Colony Railroad), the Central Massachusetts Railroad, and the Worcester, Nashua and Rochester Railroad (the last two later merged into the Boston and Maine Railroad). By 1890, Clinton was noted for its manufacturing of carpets and woven wire. The average income here is between 40 and 50,000. Clinton MA offers a simple way of life and is the first town west of 495 to offer a more affordable standard of living. It has a country feel in some places, good access to major highways 495 and 190, grocery stores, CVS, Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts, Gas stations and even a Russian Icon museum. The Wachusette Dam is an interesting feat of mankind and worth exploring. The town common has got to be award-winning because it is beautiful and on par with the Public Gardens of Boston. There is great hiking at the Nashua River Walk or any of the fire roads around the reservoir Overall, the down town area has everything you need and the people here really pull together to help each other out. Kimball Farm on Route 70 offers delicious ice-cream, antique car shows and a gift shop full of goodies. The car shows in summer are a huge draw.

Housing Expensive - 7/14/2011

For anyone who rents, the average rent is over $1,000 for just a one bedroom apartment. Utilities are not bad but its best if you can find a rental that includes heat and hot water. That will help. Boston is a great walking town.
