For those who need snow removed this winter, Charlie and Jamie Haggerty can help if you live in the Mt. Hood Terrace/Slayton Road neighborhood.

With another winter storm probably coming Thursday, the Weekly News announces their availability as a public service.

Charlie is 15 and Jamie is 13. They can be reached at 617-230-3420.

A long time ago, it was common for kids to make some money shoveling in the aftermath of a snowstorm. It provided exercise, generated some cash and — most importantly to our parents — got us out of the house.

For the past dozen or so winters we have been compiling a list of those who want to shovel as a service to senior citizens or those unable to dig themselves out for whatever reason. If your son or daughter wants to be included as a willing snow remover, send us an email ( On the subject line write “snow shoveling.” Include a daytime phone number and the neighborhood where your children are willing to work.

The paper will list your children’s names, contact information and the areas in town they can work.

We are happy to do this, but we have one request: The customer and snow remover decide on the cost of the work, not us.

Winter is here. Let’s work together to make sure everyone who needs help — and some pocket money — gets it this season.
