Orange dinosaur

Wicked Local Saugus breaks the news that a developer is buying a miniature golf course and ice-cream stand so he can build a hotel and luxury apartments.

Left open is what he plans to do with the perfectly-toothed dinosaur that is as much a part of the Rte. 1 ambiance as the Ship, the leaning tower of pizza and the Hilltop cactus.

"The fate of the iconic orange dinosaur in Saugus is uncertain," Wicked Local sighs.

We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean by spreading the word about the Yes on Question 2 campaign.

The Bottle Bill is the most effective recycling tool we have. Eighty percent of bottles covered by the Bottle Bill’s 5-cent deposit are recycled. Yes on Question 2 would add a bottle deposit to water, sports drinks, tea, juices, and other drinks that were not included in the original bill because they were not popular when the law was passed in 1982.

We need your vote on November 4 to update the Bottle Bill.
