    Very nice to see an article that reflects the true version of who the people of Charlestown really were. During a time when the people of this town were looked down upon as thugs, etc., the reality was and is that the residents of Charlestown or of “The Town” produced several well educated and talented atheletes that went on to become professional NHL and NFL players. The fact of the matter is that the town as a majority was comprised of very decent people and the “thugs” were minimal at best. It is sad that a certain few make the rest look bad and that a great community is stereotyped and is made to look bad by a certain few.
