Town snubs its own taxi company

Welcome to the 1970s. Here come the drugs, right on schedule.

Selectmen snubbed Burlington’s own Brentwood Taxi and chose Hudson Bus Lines to shuttle Burlington residents to Logan. Brentwood owner John Salvato collected letters of support from Burlington residents, to no avail. He survived the snub, and his son still operates Burlington Center Taxi.

  1. 17 oz of pot valued at $1,100.00? That’s about $65 an oz! That seems pretty steep for 50 years ago – 40 years ago it was about $40 if memory serves.
