        I've been hoping someone from Pioneer Valley in Amherst, MA, would
respond because I really loved their pathway lighting.  At first, during the
day, I thought the lights were mailboxes until I realized all mail was in a
central location (in or near the common house).  As you walk along the path,
you push a switch on one light and a bank of 3 or 4 lights turn on ahead of
you;  they're on a timer and after some minutes go off.  It seemed like a
great idea for a country setting.  Wonder how the Pioneer Valley folks feel
about them, now that they've lived with them for several years.

        Here in Cambridge, MA, we know we will have lighting at all
appropriate places (no dark nooks and crannies) as we have been encouraged
to do by the Police Dept Safety Officer.  I'm not sure about exactly what
and where the lights will be placed.  I believe that is probably going to be
decided soon by the Landscape Task Force.
