Wanted: A Crossing Guard

Back in 2002, Marylouise Burke played a crossing guard in a commercial for the anti-anemia drug Procrit. It was a memorable ad. It gave the actress's career a boost and was followed by roles in the movies Sideways (2004) and A Prairie Home Companion (2006). 

But being a crossing guard in real life has no such magic--at least not in Hudson. Mayor Tiffany Martin Hamilton announced at the Police Committee meeting last night that the City needs to hire a new crossing guard to work at John L. Edwards Primary School, because the person who had been working in the job resigned because of harassment--not by the kids but by adults, both in person and online.
