Southborough Student helps University of Michigan place second

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- The No. 4-ranked University of Michigan men's gymnastics team placed second at the NCAA Championships on Friday night (April 17) with a season-high score of 361.500 at the University of Minnesota's Sports Pavilion. The finish is the highest for U-M since the 2000 season, when it was also the national runner-up. Stanford was crowned the 2009 national champion (362.800), and Michigan beat out third-place Oklahoma by a mere three one-hundredths of a point (361.200).

Five Wolverines advanced to tomorrow's NCAA Individual Event Finals, including sophomore Chris Cameron (Winter Haven, Fla./Lake Region), who is competing on a team-best four events -- floor, pommel horse, rings, parallel bars. Also competing will be rookie Adam Hamers (Salem, Ore./South Salem) on pommel horse, senior co-captain Phil Goldberg (Dalton, Ga./McCallie) on rings, sophomore Thomas Kelley (Libertyville, Ill./Libertyville) on parallel bars and high bar, and senior Joe Catrambone (Deptford, N.J./Gloucester) on high bar.

In addition to the overall season-best mark of 361.500, Michigan registered season bests on still rings (60.750), vault (62.900), and floor (61.200). There were 16 individual scores that tied or set career or season bests in tonight's meet as well.

After a bye in the initial rotation, Michigan performed on pommel horse in the second. Paced by Cameron's team season best of 15.300, the Wolverines collected 59.150 points on the event. The second-highest score came from Hamers, who tabbed a 14.900 to equal his personal best -- a mark which he originally set in yesterday's qualifying round.

Big Ten still rings champion, Goldberg, notched a team season high of 15.400 on the event to give the Wolverines a campaign-best 60.750 rings score. Cameron added a 15.300 to the mix, while senior Ralph Rosso (Morganville, N.J./St. John Vianney) amassed a season-high 15.050 to give U-M a total of 119.900 after the third rotation.

Michigan moved to the vault for the fourth rotation, where it tallied a season-high 62.900. The highest mark came from junior co-captain David Chan (Singapore/New Hale School, Perth, Western Australia), who set a season-best 15.850. Rosso and junior Mel Anton Santander (Southborough, Mass./Algonquian Regional) both earned 15.700 -- a season high for Santander -- to give the Wolverines 182.800 points.

A score of 58.250 on parallel bars gave the Maize and Blue a total of 241.050 after the fifth rotation. Big Ten Gymnast of the Year, Kelley, gained a 14.750 on parallel bars to equal his career high for the second time this season, while Cameron led the Wolverines on the event with a 14.950.

On the sixth rotation, the Wolverines grabbed a 59.250 on high bar -- a mere five one-hundredths of a point away from its season best -- to give them a total of 300.300. Kelley was the highest achiever with a 15.450 on the apparatus, and Big Ten high bar champion, Catrambone, scored a 14.700 for the squad's second-best score on high bar.

U-M's season-best 61.200 on floor exercise in the seventh and final rotation led to its second-place finish and its season-high 361.500 point total. Cameron's team season best of 15.650 helped solidify Michigan's place in the standings.

Tomorrow night (Saturday, April 18), five Wolverines will compete in the NCAA Individual Event Finals at 7 p.m. CDT at the Sports Pavilion in Minneapolis, Minn.

Southborough Senior to receive Recognition

NEWTON, MA - The Bryant University women's lacrosse team dropped a 15-2 decision to Boston College Friday afternoon.  Delia Glover (Marston Mills, MA) and Mary Green (Merrick, NY) each had a goal to the pace the Bulldogs who travel to LIU Sunday for a 1 pm game.  

Bryant (3-11) trailed 6-0 at the half, though the game was scoreless for the first six minutes before BC's Lauren Costello beat Bryant freshman goalie Lauren Filippone (West Babylon, NY) at the 24:01 mark to make it 1-0.  Kristin Igoe added a goal of her own to make it 2-0 nearly three minutes later. 

Boston College (9-7) would stretch its lead to 13-0 before Glover put the Bulldogs on the board with an unassisted goal with 8:28 left.  Green would net the final tally of the day for the Bulldogs with 1:10 left on the clock.

The Bulldogs managed only seven shots on goal in the first frame while allowing 19 by the Eagles.  Costello would finish with four goals on the afternoon while Igoe and Maura Mahoney each had three. 

For the game, the Eagles out-shot the Bulldogs 39 to 13 and won 12 of 15 ground balls.  Filippone finished with 11 saves in net. 

Bryant will travel to Long Island University Sunday for a 1 pm game. It will be the final road game of the season for the Bulldogs who will return home next Saturday (April 25) to host Villanova in the season finale. The team will honor seniors Lauren Albert (South Windsor, CT), Glover and Victoria Russell (Southborough, MA) prior to the start of the Villanova game.

Letter to the Editor

Not that this is headline news or anything, but once again, early this afternoon (Thursday April 16th), a truck heading south on Route 85 hit the railroad bridge that goes over River Street near the T Commuter Rail Station.  Of course it was a box truck, just a little bit too tall to fit under the bridge.  And of course it made a hell of a bang when it hit (I can ALWAYS hear them when they hit).  The driver was lucky and was able to back the damaged truck out and pull into a nearby parking lot.  He did a lot of damage to the upper front of the box. This all happened without injuries, with very little insult to traffic, and with newly minted silver marks from his truck permanently embedded on the bridge.  Eventually the broken pieces were placed into the box, and the truck was towed off into the sunset.

The real point is that the bridge gets hit on a fairly regular basis.  Nobody has been severely injured that I know of, however when it happens, it typically messes traffic up as this is a busy area, and more importantly, it not only threatens the bridge structure, but the railroad tracks above.  One of these days, a real disaster is going to strike, and it is going to create some real problems for traffic, residents, and most importantly, could endanger trains passing over the bridge, especially passenger trains.

There is signage in the area stating the height of the bridge as 11 feet.  There also used to be protective barriers on each side of the bridge structure that were supposed to prevent vehicles from striking the actual bridge deck.  The barriers were ruined after several hits, and have since been removed.

I guess the question really is; "how long do we let this go before someone gets killed?" Seriously, it's going to happen someday because someone in a truck was moving right along on Route 85 and either didn't notice, or paid no attention to the signs, and slammed their too tall truck under the bridge.  I think it is way beyond time to look at the problem.  If you drive on Route 30 into Westborough, they have signage that starts at Lyman Street warning truckers of the low bridge that carries the railroad over Route 30 near Bay State Commons.  The signage was redesigned after numerous truck accidents.  They even have signs in the French language for truckers from Quebec.  

I think it is time that the Board of Selectmen get together with Interim Police Chief Jane Moran, Fire Chief John Mauro (a certified train buff by the way), DPW Superintendent Karen Galligan, Mass Highway, and CSX to develop a plan to alert truckers in a better way before they get to that bridge.  In my opinion, there have been too many truck accidents at the bridge, and something needs to be corrected in order to prevent a tragedy.

DCR’S NATIONAL MONUMENT TO THE FOREFATHERS

COMPETING FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION GRANT

Cast your vote for Faith!

The Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) National Monument to the

Forefathers in Plymouth is among 25 historic sites in the Boston area chosen to compete for a

national historic preservation grant.

In a press conference today at Faneuil Hall in Boston, the National Trust for Historic

Preservation and American Express announced their commitment to award a total of $1

million in preservation grants to 10 of those 25 projects. The National Monument to the

Forefathers will compete with the other projects for the grants, and funding will be awarded

based on the results of online voting by members of the public and other criteria.

The project with the most votes is guaranteed a grant. The remaining funding will be divided

among the grantees, with public support being one of the selection criteria.

Voting starts today at www.partnersinpreservation.com  and ends May 17.

When the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express launched their

Partners in Preservation program in 2006, American Express pledged $5.5 million over five

years to preserve historic places across the country. Each year, a different city has been chosen

to participate. Previous cities have been San Francisco, Chicago, and New Orleans.

“Historic preservation not only protects our heritage, it also stimulates the economy by

creating jobs in travel and tourism throughout the Commonwealth,” said Governor Deval L.

Patrick, cochairman of the Partners in Preservation Advisory Committee.

“We are delighted to have one of DCR’s historic monuments chosen for this program,” said

DCR Commissioner Richard K. Sullivan Jr. “I urge everyone to cast their vote for Faith.”

Faith is the main figure on the National Monument to the Forefathers. The 81-foot-tall

monument, built in the mid-1800s, also includes smaller representations of Morality, Liberty,

Education, and Law. Faith, the main figure, stands 36 feet tall on the 45-foot base.

2009 Annual Town Meeting

April 14, 2009 - First year moderator, David Coombs, opens up the Annual Town meeting last night at Trottier Middle School.

Town Meeting Completed Tonight

April 14, 2009 - Linda Hubley - What looked like another start to a stymied town meeting night eventually came together to a close for the  2009 Annual Town meeting. The meeting started off on Article seven which was to see if the Town will vote to amend the Northborough-Southborough Regional School Integrated Agreement by adding a new Section IV (h) as follows.. It was a compromised article that was submitted on behalf of the Regional School Committee. Well, that brought a series of voters to the mikes along with dissenting Regional School committee member Paul Butka and Martin Healy a former author of the agreement between the two towns (Northborough and Southborough). The original agreement between the two towns occurred in the 1950’s when the school was newly built. Anticipating a possible renovation/addition/new school project several years ago, a committee was formed to ensure that the two towns consider and share the agreement once again.

During the entire process of studies, presentations and the building and renovation of the Algonquin Regional High School the Regional Committee, the ARHS Building Committee, school and town officials always referred to the Northborough/Southborough agreement that was in place.

When it came down to the reimbursement issue last year, it was pointed out that under the reorganized chapter 70b, regional school systems may adopt either their agreement or the state statue for repayment. Several residents in Northborough thought that Southborough could pay more through the state statue vs. the agreed upon Regional agreement. Hence, there has been serious infighting between the two towns over the way the state reimburses the town for the ARHS building. Selectmen Boland and Giorlandino expressed their concerns over passage of the article. They stated they had been to many of the meetings in Northborough to talk about the situation and at times were not very welcomed at the meetings, at one time being called the “Evil people that want to steal our money”. Yet, Northborough wants Southborough to pay more than their share of the students that attend classes at ARHS.  (At Monday night's meeting after long discussion, voters approved funding for operational expenses that were above what Southborough felt they should have to pay.  The reasoning for the passage though was more town meetings and possible litigation would make the requested money figure miniscule in comparison to what a dragged out confrontation could cost.)

The Advisory Committee agreed with the Selectmen that as passed, the article would not deter the Town of Northborough from litigating for more money at a later date. It was made clear that one town cannot legally deny the other town from a future lawsuit either by wording in the agreement or a warrant article at a town meeting.   In the end, voters defiantly voted the article down.

Article eight then brought a flurry of speakers to the mikes once again, as Advisory Committee Member, John Butler, amended the article so that $27,000 would be raised and $223,00 would be transferred from the stabilization fund to help keep taxes down for the next fiscal year. Residents and Selectmen were concerned about taking money from the “rainy day” account and using it for an item that may or may not be a “rainy day” item. Discussion on the article went for about another thirty minutes before the vote was taken and it was passed with Mr. Butler’s amendment.

Article nine was split. The $40,000 for future risk assessment for the MCP compliance and close out of the DPW site remediation for PCE containments lasted several minutes. Ms Muggridge from Parmenter Road spoke in favor of getting this article through now and discovering how extensive the pollution is and how much it will cost to mitigate. The $40,000 was passed. The rest of the articles were bundled together and voters passed that article. Article ten passed for a total of $380,000 to make water tank improvements on Oak Hill Road and site improvements to Tara Road. These monies will come from the water department billing accounts.

Article eleven was reduced by the school committee to $30,000 to have the Trottier Fire Panel replaced and to have Finn School plumbing repairs made. Mr. James Denman spoke in favor of having the school department check on the availability of the students in the plumbing classes at Assabet Valley Regional High School do the work. Mr. White from the schools said that they would like to see this article pass for the full amount of $30,000 for work to be done but that he would definitely check in with the school about the students doing the work.

In another school article, voters questioned the expense of $67,000+ for new technology equipment. It was reported that school personnel in the technology department are looking to replace much older servers and switches. The article passed for a total of $132,158 with $64,991 going to pay for the last installment of a three year lease on computer equipment. Articles 13, 14, 25 and 26 all passed. Articles 15, 16, and 17 were postponed, most likely to come up at a special fall town meeting.

Articles eighteen through twenty-four were all related to the Community Preservation Act. The Committee through a series of presentations decided on the following items to present to town meeting: have the body of town meeting accept the report, appropriate money for the Housing reserve fund for future purchase or construction of affordable housing, historic fund restoration of South Union School, general fund for the town clerk to preserve more old town books and records, Southborough Historical Society to catalog and preserve historic items, pay for the open space at Chestnut Hill and place money in the account to assess any new properties for use as recreation fields for the Town of Southborough. All CPC articles passed.

The meeting ended shortly before 10:30 tonight.

Senior Center Note

The Minstrel Man Show at the Senior Center is for April 15th  --  it was listed wrong in the back of our newsletter but it was correct in the calendar portion. It's this Wednesday and not the 22nd.

RADIO STORMS ON JUPITER:  On April 11th, an amateur radio astronomer in New Mexico heard loud pops and crackles coming from the loudspeaker of his shortwave receiver.  The sounds resembled terrestrial lightning, but the source was not on Earth. It was a radio storm on Jupiter.  You can listen to the sounds on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com .

Astronomers have long known that Jupiter produces strong shortwave radio bursts detectable from Earth; the fact of Jupiter's "radio activity" is not news. However, now may be the best time in decades to listen to the giant planet.  The sun is in the pits of a century-level solar minimum. Low solar activity increases the transparency of Earth's atmosphere to shortwave radio waves, allowing signals from Jupiter to more easily and clearly reach the ground.  At the same time, terrestrial radio interference subsides (another side-effect of solar minimum), so Jupiter bursts are easier to identify.

2009 is going to be a good year for Jupiter.  The planet is moving away from the sun and may now be seen shining brightly in the eastern sky before dawn.  Students, teachers and amateur scientists who wish to try listening as well as watching should consider building their own radio telescope.  Kits are available from NASA's Radio JOVE program: http://radiojove.gsfc.nasa.gov/
