Barrowsville Station in Norton a Family Tradition Albert Brazao has had a long time in the food industry, even before he was born you might say. Brazao said his father was his inspiration, as he was a chef all of Brazao’s life and beyond. He took over the Barrowsville Station in 2007, after moving in and changing around what was at the time strictly a liquor store. “I drove around the neighborhood and I thought that if we put in food it would attract a lot more people,” Brazao said. “When we bought this place in May of 2007, a year later the kitchen was open and ready to go.” Click here for the full story. ----------------------------------- New Deal Close For Nearby Casino, Governor Says Governor Deval Patrick and the Mashpee Womponoag …

State Senator James E. Timilty stops by to talk about the MBTA bailout, First Settlers Cemetery.
“It’s like giving a child an allowance for a week on Monday and they spend it all and come back on Thursday saying they need it again,” Timilty said.
