Same reason Portnoy would take $10M---because they're offering.

seems to be a bit of a problem around Gardner.

Also, the town of (North?) Brookfield apparently exists.

East Brookfield was the last town established in Massachusetts I believe. My brother lives in North Brookfield. Garner and the surrounding area have been losing jobs for decades.

I guess you are right. Growing up I had no idea they were in Worcester county. I thought Leicester, and the Brookfields were the only ones on that map.
