Our County’s Law Library has a Newsletter.

Fighting and exposing the corruption at our town hall, I made countless trips to the Hampden Law Library at 50 State Street in Springfield. Not only is everybody as friendly as can be there, they are helpful beyond their duty. Besides updated books and treatises covering the fast spectrum of law, it is a place that offers free “Lexis” and “Westlaw” access to do research.
Lexis and Westlaw are corporate organizations which do collect published as well as unpublished opinions for their huge online databases. Subscribers to their services utilize these huge databases to find cases they use to support their legal argument. Powerful search engines provided by Lexis and Westlaw are helpful to find that case to the point needed to win an argument.
Law firms pay thousands of dollars every month for their subscriptions. Whether their attorneys practice in state, federal, or Supreme Court, the service is imperative to write complaints, motions, briefs, or prepare oral arguments.
If you do want to be taken serious, you can’t do without, believe me! At the Hampden Law Library you get this service for free... To make the best use of the time at the library, cases of interest can be e-mailed to your home to be read in the privacy of your home at your convenience.
What ever your legal needs are; you may want to fight an unjustified citation, you are going through divorce, you want to file a patent for your million dollar idea, or you have an issue with your landlord; you will be amazed what you can do if you just believe in yourself. The folks at the law library will help you along the jorney. The latest service the Hampden Law Library offers is a free online newsletter. Click here to read the first edition, to subscribe to the newsletter, click on the link included in their newsletter.

Lake Siog closed

The rain over the weekend washed out many septic systems and as a cause the Small-sign-with-BACTERIA-warning bacteria count performed on lake Siog (often called Holland Pond) was to high. The Board of Health closed the lake “Until Further Notice.” The little sign at the public beach located on Pond-Bridge-Road went unnoticed. At the time I took the picture shown here, four individuals were swimming at the public beach and only realized that the beach was closed when I told them. They immediately came to shore and voiced their concern about the size of the sign.

500 Club Roast Beef Diner

Super-Special-500-Drawing-TicketFortunately, the weather will cooperate with the planned “500 Club Roast Beef Diner” organized every year by the Holland Rod and Gun club. The event that will take place tomorrow, Saturday July 25, is the biggest event organized by the club every year. There will be country music played by the Stone Canyon Band, a band that made it into the Country Hall of Fame. The band will play from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. The dinner will be served at 1 p.m., half an hour earlier than last year.
As every year, the club will sell 500 tickets for $15.00.
The drawing will be at 4 p.m. The first prize will be $1200, 2nd prize $600, 3rd prize $300, 4th prize $200, 5th Prize $175, 6th prize $150, 7th prize $100, and 8th prize $50.
There will also be drawings of attendance prizes of $25 each. The times of the drawings will be: 2.30 p.m., 3 p.m., 3.30 p.m., and 4 p.m.
There will be horseshoe pitching and time to catch-up on local gossip at the bar inside. I was there last year and had fun meeting new people. You don’t need to be a member to attend.
