Thinking of updating or using that basement for a finished room but think it's too dark and dreary? How about cutting in new windows or doors? Give Fred Mabardy a call for concrete cutting.

February 5, 2008 - The snow began February 6th and was forever known as the blizzard of "78".  Hundreds of people were stranded on Route 9 in Southborough.  Emergency shelters had to be set up at the former Commonwealth Gas, Fay School, St. Marks and the town's schools.  Roads were clogged with tractor trailer trucks and private vehicles until the National Guard, State and local plows were able to free the cars and bring them to varied lots around town. Walking was about the only way to get places. If you were in town in 1978 and have photos and would like to share one or two with readers of Southborough News send them along to the editor@southboroughnews.com

Darryl Purpose has led a diverse and interesting life. Lured as a teenager to the world of casino gambling, Purpose went from betting dollars on the graveyard shifts in downtown Las Vegas, to being one of the best blackjack players in the world by his mid twenties. In his late twenties, Purpose left Blackjack to walk across the country (L.A. to DC) with the ‘Great Peace March.’ Writing and playing music as a member of the ‘house band’ of the GPM—his first performing experience— was a watershed event for Purpose, leaving him with a permanent thirst for the connection possible through music. This led to another march in the (then) Soviet Union and the first-ever, outdoor stadium rock concert there, featuring Bonnie Raitt, Santana, James Taylor, and Darryl's band, Collective Vision.

Purpose moved into music fulltime in 1996. A thousand shows, and 20,000 CD’s later, Purpose has “finally realized his calling as a dramatist for the dispossessed, a chronicler of those Americans who, by choice or by chance, live on the heart's back streets, rising up through the crooked lines like leaves of grass" writes Michael Tisserand in the liner notes from his album A Crooked Line .

From unrequited love in a bicycle repair shop in Mr. Schwinn to spurned to ramblings of a disaffected Angelino in “A Crooked Line,” we recognize that the often dark characters presented in those story songs live all around us. With his distinctive baritone voice, a smoothly proficient finger-style guitar technique which has earned him an endorsement with Taylor Guitars and a sense of drama and storytelling in his lyrics and music, Purpose delivers a charismatic performance that captures coffeehouse and theater audiences alike, including a huge supply of interesting stories from his activities as a peace activist, professional gambler and modern troubadour.
