Caring for your carpet is similar to taking care of yourself. Annual visits to your doctor, a proper diet, exercise, all lead to good health and hopefully, an extended life.

The same is true for your carpet. An annual professional cleaning, vacuuming, spot cleaning, and catching dirt before it enters you home, all helps to keep your carpet and home healthy, and extend the life of your carpet.


Catching dirt

Most dry soils, approximately 70 percent, that are brought into a home are deposited within the first 10-15 feet. Using mats outside and inside, help reduce the amount of soils brought further into the home. Removing shoes upon entering the house also helps. Change filters in your

Title problems have delayed plans to turn these former mill worker homes into a museum.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Plans for the Hodge Mill Museum on Houghton Street have hit a wall.

The four buildings, dating to between 1840 and 1870, were facing the wrecking ball until Alan Horbal pushed to turn them into a walk-up museum of mill-worker housing.

But legal obstacles have prevented the newly created Hodge Mill House Museum Inc. from entering or taking possession of the property.

"We're in a quagmire," Horbal, an officer of the museum and Historical Commission member, told the commission at its meeting Friday.

The two-unit dwellings, and an adjacent storefront at the

Many of these conversations are focused around

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Blindfolded, our heroine is saved from a sadomasochistic viewing of her own movie. Alas, the audience must decide if the pain outweighs the pleasure.

The only film I ever walked out on was "In Cold Blood" (1967), about the gruesome murder of four members of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, circa 1959.
