UNEXPECTED SOLAR ACTIVITY:  The sun produced an unexpected burst of activity on April 23rd when an enormous prominence rose over the northeastern limb and erupted. A coronal mass ejection (CME) billowed away from the blast site, but the billion-ton cloud is not heading toward Earth. Visit http://spaceweather.com for movies of the event.

Lake House

April 21, 2009 - Linda Hubley - Selectmen heard again tonight from Lakeside productions about their plans to film a movie in Essex and Southborough next month. The plot of the movie is several friends come together after about thirty years at a funeral for one of their friends. The movie will be filmed on St. Mark’s Street between the cemetery and Pilgrim Church. Pilgrim Church will also be used for interior shots. Ted’s Towing on Park Street, St. Mark’s School, St. Mark’s Church, property near Parkerville Road and Route 9, Woodward School and several other locations in town have been selected or are in the works for hosting a variety of equipment trucks, catering services and Extra’s vehicles. Sod will be laid out over St. Mark’s Street which will be left that way for Southborough’s traditional Memorial Day observances.

Town Counsel is looking over the contract for the final wording and Selectmen were pretty agreeable to most of the issues. The production company will be hiring police officers to assist with traffic during the filming sequences. They also will ask the Veterans if the flags could be put out in the cemetery earlier for the shoot and continuity of the filming. The movie takes place around a July 4th holiday. Prep work for the movie will begin the week of the eleventh and filming will take place the week of the 18th. They hope to be back for one more day of shooting on the 26th of May. The movie will star Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, David Spade, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello and Colin Quinn. Click here for the IMDB info on the film.

Cleanup Time

April 21, 2009 - On Wednesday, April 15, members of Southborough Girl Scout Troop 2787 launched their own clean up crusade near Woodward School and the Sudbury Reservoir Trail.  The girls volunteered two hours of their day to pick up litter.  Donning gloves and chanting their own anti-littering slogans, the girls collected more than trash bags full of litter.  Much of the trash consisted of coffee cups, bottles and 100's of cigarette butts.  The girls were dismayed at how much litter they found right outside their old school and along the otherwise pristine conservation trails.  But they were excited to see how much they were able to accomplish in just one afternoon of pitching in.

April 21, 2009 - Linda Hubley - Controversy at tonight’s selectmen’s meeting centered around two committees charged with town buildings but different objectives. The Southborough Municipal Facilities committee seeks to review town buildings and space and recommend improvements or like the police station a new public safety facility. The Southborough Historical Commission seeks to preserve Southborough’s past and if there is a way to preserve an historic building to find a solution to do so. However, the two committees sparred tonight in front of the Selectmen over the controversial Southborough Police station. Points from both committees pro and con for tearing the old station down and building a new public safety facility behind the fire station or to do an addition/renovation to the existing police station were discussed.

The police station as it stands now is in poor shape with limited capabilities for today’s police work and technology. All three selectmen agreed that we need a new police station. Whether or not that is through a new building or an addition/renovation project will eventually be determined when proposals are brought to the citizens of Southborough at a future town meeting. Michael Hartnett and his committee has proposed to go with a new public safety building even as Selectmen asked how they would address working on the add/renovation proposal. They also would like permission to continue talks with St. Mark’s about the possibility of purchasing some St. Marks School property to help with a new traffic flow if the building is built. The committee gave the figure of 7.27 million for a new station that included plumbing, heating and other associated costs. The committee also suggested slowing the project down until a new permanent police chief is chosen. They thanked Interim Police Chief Jane Moran for all her input and look ahead to more if she is eventually

The Historical Commission is pushing to have the current police station preserved possibly with an addition and renovation to accommodate a new police station or for other use. Committee member Nancy Vargas has spent considerable time on a schematic design for the building and has had her drawings copyrighted. David Falconi said that it has been hard to work with the Municipal Facilities Committee as their minds seemed to have been made up from the getgo.

Both Michael and Tom McCarthy of the Municipal facilities committee responded by saying that was the direction that the Selectmen had told them to go after preliminary meetings and plans that had looked at two proposals for new vs. the add/ren. Selectmen Phaneuf asked the committees to work together to bring both proposals to a future town meeting to let residents decide which way to go. Selectmen Giorlandino took both committees to task telling them there was a lot of expertise on both committees and that he feels both committees can work together to come up with the best plans for the town to choose from.

In other business Selectmen voted to continue until September 7, 2009 the new Town House Hours. Hours for the town house will continue as Monday, Wednesday and Thursday will remain from 8 AM to 5 PM; Tuesday the Town house is open from 8 AM to 7 PM and Friday 8 AM to 12 Noon. Several town employees told selectmen to give the new program hours a little longer for people to find out about the Tuesday night hours. Selectmen were hesitant to continue the program noting several residents had stopped or called on them about the hours. Only one town house employee in attendance would like to see the hours go back to a regular five day work week. Mr. Jim Colleary voiced his opinion on the subject, saying several area towns currently run a 4 ½ day work week with one late night open extra hours.

Selectmen also awarded the contract for Animal Control officer to the current ACO Leslie Boardman.

An artist's reception for collagist Kathleen Hendrick will be held at The Gallery at Second Stage Studio on Sunday, May 3, from 1:00p to 4:00p.

Kathleen Hendrick, an artist residing in Southborough, Massachusetts, works in collage and mixed media.

Kathleen says of her work, "In collage I have found a medium that allows me to express a wide range of emotions through images both traditional and abstract using found and created materials."

She is a process-oriented artist that explores various techniques and materials and lets the artwork result from that process. Currently she is exploring the use of wax paper and rice paper and uses these materials to create wonderful textures and bases for paint and ink. She seeks to convey a sense of mood, emotion or place within her art in order to touch her audience and infuses much of her art with textures that create an aged or distressed patina.

Kathleen has exhibited in numerous juried shows across New England including the Attleboro Art Museum, the DeCordova Museum, and Goddard House. She has exhibited in online exhibitions and is a member of the online Caladan Gallery. She received first prize for Mixed Media in the 2008 Fall Juried Art Exhibit curated by the Hudson Arts Alliance. Most recently, Kathleen curated and exhibited in the show Collage: Process and Product at the Southborough Arts Center.

The artist’s solo show will continue through May 23 at The Gallery at Second Stage Studio, 1 Angell Road, Cumberland, RI. Regular gallery hours at Monday through Friday 1:00p to 8:00p, Saturday 9:00a to 6:00p, and Sunday 1:00p to 4:00p. Other hours are available by appointment.

Celebrating the creative arts, Second Stage Studio offers a wide variety of performances, classes and exhibits to children, youth and adults. Conveniently located on Angell Road, in Cumberland, Rhode Island, the facility is about one mile south of interstate route 295 and includes a performance space with professional sound and lighting, an art studio, conference room, and a multipurpose room and gallery. Ample off-street parking is available.

MORNING METEORS:  Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher, the source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower.  Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Wednesday, April 22nd, with a display of 10 to 20 meteors per hour over the northern hemisphere.  Occasionally, Earth passes through a dense region of the comet's tail and rates surge five- to ten-fold.  In 1982, for instance, observers were surprised by an outburst of 90 Lyrids per hour. Because Thatcher's tail has never been mapped in detail, the outbursts are unpredictable and could happen again at any time.  The best time to look, no matter where you live, is during the dark hours before dawn on Wednesday morning April 22nd.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for full coverage.

LUNAR OCCULTATION OF VENUS:  Even if the Lyrids fizzle, there is still something wonderful to see on Wednesday morning, April 22nd. The crescent Moon and Venus are going to have a close encounter of jaw-dropping beauty.  Look low and to the east just before sunrise.  Observers in western parts of North America will see a lunar occultation: Venus will disappear behind the Moon's limb just after 5 am PDT and reappear again an hour or so later.  Details may be found in this Science@NASA story: http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2009/17apr_lyrids.htm
