Cranberry Capital[edit]

Where are the facts supporting the claim that Middleborough is the Cranberry Capital of the world? anonymously added 12/2006

---Middleborough is one of a half dozen towns in southeastern Massachusetts that claim the monniker of "Cranberry Capital of the world." It is the location of Ocean Spray's headquarters, the former location of one of its processing plants, and has significant acreage devoted to the bogs and associated facilities and lands. I would support changing the statement that "it is" to one that it "is referred to" or "calls itself" Purplemouse 20:57, 16 January 2007 (UTC)purplemouse

Casino?[edit]

Middleboro as the "ideal" location for a casino is an opinion. The citation provided is merely a link to an article about a contested Town Meeting.

Notable people section[edit]

Hi, I removed the foloowing people from this section because they do not have their own Wikipedia article which is required to establish notability per Wikipedia guidelines. The information I removed is: Lydia Cabot Dodge, Abolitionist. Founded Middleboro's Cabot Club in 1897, Tyler Horan, professional baseball player with the San Francisco Giants organization and Andrew Osborne, writer of Image Comics' "Blue Estate".

Education Section[edit]

  • this response is for an assignment in a college course*

-I believe this article has a lot of information to offer about Middleboro. The sources seem accurate, although I'm a little concerned about someone naming this the "Cranberry Capitol" of the world. We certainly do have a lot of cranberries and bogs but I don't know what qualifies us as a capitol.

-everything in the article is related and relevant to the topic, nothing was distracting.

-I think education was unrepresented for the following reasons:

Although the only main schools ran by Middleboro are the kindergarten, high school, elementary, and the middle school...I think its valuable to add how the elementary school recently developed into two separate categories based on where the child is from in the town. I also think its important to mention the special education program offered to mentally changed or disabled young adults at Middleboro high school. This program is very important to not only residents of the town but also all surrounding towns because its one of the only special education programs offered in south eastern Massachusetts. In addition, it could be valuable to mention the Chamberlain School. Although often overlooked, this school is a great idea to help others achieve their goals and pursue them to try their best. The Chamberlain School, located in North Middleboro, is "a a co-educational therapeutic boarding and day school, serving students ages 11-22 from Massachusetts, across the United States, and throughout the world."[1]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jencogan (talkcontribs) 16:00, 9 September 2016 (UTC) Jencogan (talk) Jencogan (talk) 16:06, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
