Martins Pond: When it rains, it floods

On a bright summer day, North Reading's Martins Pond seems like the perfect place to paddle about in a canoe or maybe take a quick swim to cool off.

When I heard about this last night, I wondered if it was the water or something else that killed the guy!:-) Seriously, the Martins Pond watershed has been abused for years. For example, the loss of wetlands for a driving range (how did that ever get through?), and the continuing loss downstream. Instead of being the brunt of jokes, why not treat it for what it is, a town resource? Where are the ducks that swam there in my youth? The fishermen at the bridge? All gone.
