How the Grinch closed Glavin

Shrewsbury – Just weeks before Christmas, residents of the Irving A. Glavin Regional Center in Shrewsbury, and their families, were notified that the center will close by June 2013. The center, which is home to 55 intellectually impaired patients, is one of four state facilities slated for closure. In a plan presented by the Governor's Office, the displaced residents would be relocated either to community group homes or to one of two similar facilities that will not close: Wrentham Developmental Center and the Hogan Regional Center in Hathorne.

Oftentimes the deepest pain of an economic downturn cannot be measured by Wall Street.
