I’m glad Bobby Daniels didn’t get upset at being honored Saturday with a street named in his honor. Bobby has never sought fanfare or recognition -- in fact, he has shunned the spotlight -- which makes Saturday morning’s surprise even more fitting. ‘Bobby Daniels Lane’ has a nice ring to it. It was a nice gesture by Town Council, and I’m glad everyone kept it a surprise. Who says Blackstone folks can’t keep a good secret?


The Town eventually will install its ‘Tech Triumph’ state historical marker outside the house where it was written -- back in the Summer of 1919 -- at 1020 South Main Street. Kyle Houts owns the property and is planning renovations. Meanwhile, I hope Town Council will approve large, visible, attractive signage for Rt. 460 and perhaps the Town Square, directing visitors to the historic location.
