Rev. Howard Haywood has another thought-provoking TAB column  today that aims straight at those who, in his words, believe “applying the term ‘urban’ to any part of Newton is an unspeakable five-letter word.”
Haywood reminds us that even the Newton Free Library building once faced fierce opposition from those opposed to changing the character of our city.  And he wonders why  this is the case, given the quality of the individuals who live here…
What is so puzzling is that Newton is home to so many dedicated, civic-minded people who continue to volunteer and work to make the city the community it should be and not hide behind the myth that has been created.

Be sure and read the entire column and then let’s talk about it.
