Well at least here i can not be moderated by Art. What a bunch of malarky. This is not reporting this is plain harrassment and I hope everyone else sees this. This has been a set up from the start and it gets opened up again once he has nothing to report about. How stupid does would the TM be to send something to here that he knows can be tracked? HELLO!!! This is still stinking of degan, who by the way, everyone is waiting for you to quit like you said he would. I would really like to know who is leading who here, Deagan leading Art or Art leading Degan to sell his paper. Oh Art seemed to forget to mention that one of his data tracking experts is Megans boy friend.

Okay, in response to your diatribe - FIRST, Art had the information verified by a prestgious firm who do forensics re: computers - SECOND, the TM apparently didn't know he could be tracked. THIRD, this has NOTHING to do with Josh Degen - this has to do with harassment by "somebody" in Grafton - Art obviously was very careful to have all facets checked before he wrote a word. You just seemed to have a mean mouth and haven't got the thought process to "follow the dots" and think things through. OR, are the the TM???

If I recall this issue is about Haddad and not about Degen. I just read the Lowell Sun archives and he was quoted as saying that he would consider resigning, not that he would resign.

Why should he go when it was Haddad that admitted to the bad behavior. I hope he stays. He may be a loose cannon at times but is usually right with an unconventional delivery. Haddad on the other hand is a self serving piece of work. The selectmen should take a hard look at this new information. If indeed they ignored it when it was brought forward then shame on them. They really must follow up on this now. If the new set of emails did come from Haddad then it is time for him to be shown the door.

The actual emails are on thegrotonline now...clearly the messages were from someone in Grafton who had inside information, but by what I read in the investigator's report of the facts, the person lied over and over again What was the point? to make Ms. Volpe stop talking to the investigator? I'm not sure but it would seem pretty bad to be harassing someone in the middle of an investigation, whether it was the TM or his wife. According to the facts, it wouldn't be anyone else. I also read that Bob Leland is only a friend. From earlier emails, they were obviously broken up but must still be friends. "Bill" (MH) your info is so sketchy and self-serving lol

Before anybody gets caught up in SICK OF IT's ravings and rantings, let me follow up with what COUNTRY STOIC has posted. When SOI posts on the Groton Line, he is "Bill Walsh, long-time resident of Groton" - nobody knows who Bill is nor is he a registered voter. His email has been traced - and it is one more alias of a sick man. Have you noticed on the Groton Line how he deliberately misspells words?? He does a few in his postings here - he knows how to spell Degen. Josh is a good man who has tried very hard to correct "the problem". Could "Bill" be afraid of him??

Why would anyone be afraid of Josh Degen. He is nothing more than a pompous ass blow hard.

I agree with Throne Hill. Either that or "Bill Walsh" is a ventriloquist dummy. Ah, "dummy" does fit. You are so presumably outraged that Meghan and Pat should speak out against the TM - I should think everybody would be outraged about an admittedly morally challenged man who was emotionally unfaithful to his new and second wife (she should have expected it, repeat history)- unsolicited risque comments to Meghan. It's time to close your laptop, Mr. Haddad.

I see that "Bill Walsh" has visited this page again and judged me.

The truth must be painful - desparate men use desparate means and try not to hear the truth. As the saying goes "the truth will out" - but at what price??

Emily,

You can't even spell the word you're accusing someone of. Who is ignorant? The only people who support Mark Haddad are either idiots or must be Haddad himself.

You're saying something about a lack of education in Pepperell...AND YOU SPELLED THE FIRST WORD IN THIS REPLY WRONG. Look up the definition of the word "ignorant." While you're (YOU'RE!) at it, look up the different between "your" and "you're" BTW, I'm from Pepperell, and if my dirty, smelly old drug addicted ass with no education just called this, I'd hate to know where you went to college.

*Look up the difference between "your" and "you're" is what I meant to type. I figured I'd probably have to spell that out for you because you don't seem like the type that could figure that out on your own.

Emily, you continue to embarrass yourself. The towns shown under people's names don't necessarily indicate where they live. For instance, I don't live in Pepperell, and jio doesn't seem to live in Worcester, either. Do you live in the town of AOL? Where is that, exactly? Is it anywhere near the Cahulawassee River?

You're correct, I live in Pepperell. Dirty old smelly Pepperell. Dirty old smelly Pepperell where I assumed that people on Topix knew how location determination worked on here...

Clearly, though, since Pepperell pops up as your location, you're not educated. Also, since you live there according to her view on how cyber space and the real world mingle, you must be very good with your hands to be tying off a tourniquet and typing at the same time. I learned that at an early age growing up in these here dirty, smelly parts.(That and when to use "your" and "you're" appropriately.)

What's going on in Groton is crazy... to get back on topic. People like Emilie will exist wherever there's conflict and wherever they feel they need to resort to cheap insults (well, kinda like I did. More than once) I just think if you're going to start throwing out insults you need to fact check. It should be goal number one in politics to know what you're talking about and not make yourself a fool by saying things like "Your stupid." This whole Groton fiasco is so fustrating because it seems as though all the means to fact check and either rule someone in or out are RIGHT THERE! Think it's stupid? Maybe it is. But if a name gets cleared, we move on. Think it's legit? Maybe it is. Then justice will -hopefully- be served, and we move on. I guess I just don't understand why nothing's been ruled out. I'm not 100% on how much some of this costs, but I know the more people dick around the more it costs the tax payers, the more it distracts from taking on projects that could positively benefit the town... for what? So more and more time can be spent talking about all this town drama... it seems like by this not being settled, it's as if the powers to be are saying they'd rather not be proactive and squash this and move onto focusing that energy on the citizens. This sort of thing is just disheartening and it happens everywhere.

And, yes, I'll 'fess up to my immaturity with Emily. I just can't stand when people have to take it to elementary school levels. So much so that I even stooped down... but to stoop even further, since I'm an ignorant, drug addicted, dirty, smelly citizen of P Town with no education I guess that's... well is that what's expected?

Pepperell is actually a very nice town- quaint and quiet. I've never heard anything about any drugs there, or whatever - for someone to think one town removed is the ghetto is just ludicrous. There are more than a few kids from Groton who school choice to Nissitissit because it's an excellent school. And have to point out the obvious - Pepperell isn't in the papers for all the sordid, horrible behaviors going on in Groton by its leaders. I'd think anyone from Groton must feel ashamed to live there - I'd gladly live in Pepperell over Groton right now! Since hiring a town manager, the place seems to have gone to hell in a hand basket and no one knows what they're doing. Or seems to care. It's a shame.

What this really all "boils down to" is whether or not Mark Haddad has been truthful - NO.

Whether or not the Groton Board of Selectmen will
admit that they made a mistake in hiring him - and then not following through when they learned he lied (again) and used town equipment to harass Meghan Volpe - HE DID.

Whether or not the Board of Selectmen will request that Haddad replace the $7,000 of taxpayer money spent to investigate his lies and what he did - after all, the taxpayers didn't do it - HE DID.

And whether or not the Board of Selectmen will apologize to Meghan Volpe for what has happened to her and her family because of the Selectmen's erroneous choice to hire Mark Haddad - and then back him up in his lies.

Not simple, I know. Sure would clear the slate for everybody.

One last thought - how come the Selectmen are so quiet? Have they thrown in the towel since The Groton Line story exposing the additional harassing calls Meghan Volpe received during the investigation - the ones from Haddad's home town of Grafton? They aren't releasing easily obtained free evidence to clear the town manager. Answer - THEY CAN'T CLEAR HIM.
