What a Difference a Day Makes

August 1, 2009 - The Sudbury Reservoir  Parkerville Road during a stormy July 31 and below a Sunny Sudbury Reservoir White Bagley Road August 1.

Which Plan?

This past Tuesday night selectmen’s meeting had selectmen telling two committees to come together to look at each plan that would be submitted. The Municipal Facilities committee is charged with coming up with a plan to provide the police department with a new building while the Southborough historical commission would like to retain the original Peters Annex High School. Nancy Vargas has spent an enormous time and energy into preliminary plans for an annex off of the current police station to provide needed police department upgrades and save the historical building. Meanwhile the Municipal Facilities committee has spent moneys for study and preliminary architectural plans for replacement of the building with ultimate attachment to the Fire Department. They have been limited by the structure of the land that is owned by the town between the police and fire departments.

The Southborough Police Department is in serious need of updating to come into the 21st century. The current department has inadequate space for all of it’s’ functions at the current site. To top off the pros and cons of building or adding to a site at the current location that would limit future expansion is the potential for the “High Speed Video” site at 150 Cordaville road. That site could prove to be a welcome site for a public safety site that could include both fire and police at a reasonable cost for purchase and renovation and leave room for future expansion.  It would mean easy access to all sides of town from the nearby intersection of route 9 and 85.  It also could give the departments adequate space now and for future demands.  It would most likely be more cost effective in the long run for purchase, renovation and leaving options for the future vs being locked into a site currently at the police and fire site where expansion will be limited.

It was left by selectmen that the committees and town department heads come up with cooperative plans for the special town meeting in September. The plans should include what would be involved including looking into the 150 Cordaville Road and what the costs would be for purchase, renovation and taking the building off the current tax rolls. Selectmen Giordlandino suggested very strongly that all groups work cooperatively to come up with their plans.

Robert H. Cumming



Robert H. Cumming, 92 ,a long time resident of Southborough, passed away Thursday, July 30, 2009 at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, surrounded by family.

He was beloved husband of the late Evelyn (Schold) Cumming for 48 years.

Born in Shrewsbury, he was the son of the late George Hosmer and Isabel (MacGillivray) Cumming.

Bob grew up in the Lakeview section of Worcester and was a 1936 graduate of Worcester North High School. He was a WW II Army veteran serving in the Army Corp of Engineers. Bob worked his entire career at New England Power Service Co. in Boston and Westborough, retiring in 1978.

In his younger years he was active in the bicycle racing scene and in his later years he enjoyed his genealogy hobby. As a devoted father and grandfather, Bob’s greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially with his two grandsons. He was a kind and selfless man who will be dearly missed and will be held forever in the hearts of his family and friends.

The Cumming family wishes to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Summit Elder Care of Worcester, which played a key role in his life for the past few years.

Just Another Day in Paradise

August 1, 2009 Another Rainy day with storms bringing torrential rainfall and downbursts.

What's Up?

Some people have asked about the recent misses in updates of the Southborough News. First I would like to remind people that my full time job is working with the United States Department of Agriculture Animal Plant Health Inspection Services in Worcester with the Asian Long Horned Beetle program. (Hopefully the beetle will never visit Southborough). The Southborough News is a one person operation. I really enjoy coming home and updating the website nightly. I have a wonderful family that supports me in my endeavor covering Southborough. My husband was born here and our children are fourth generation Southborough. I basically attend as many meetings, activities and events as I can make (especially since we do not currently have many meetings covered by cable.) I then go home and update the website bringing the news, events and happenings from around town.

As many of you know, my mom suffers from Alzheimer’s and has been in a nursing home now for over two years. I try to make it up to Billerica to see her as often as permits. My brother and sisters and I have worked for the last year to make my mom’s property presentable for sale and have just recently sold it to have mom’s nursing home bills covered by Medicare. We now have to do the same for a New Hampshire condo campsite that dad bought for all of his children and grandchildren ten years ago. Unfortunately, mom and dad did not have a trust fund set up for their properties. This is a HUGE learning lesson for us and our property and inheritance  for our children.

I still have family commitments and most recently have taken up a battle on the insurance front. On Monday July 20th my daughter was driving her car north on route 85 north with a friend when they were struck by a distracted driver making a left turn right in front of her. Our daughter attempted to stop her vehicle in enough time to avoid the collision but was unable to. Luckily she avoided a head on collision.  The collision as some of you may know took place at Richards Road and Route 85. Her and her friend were injured and taken to the Marlborough Hospital.  Our daughter lost some time out of work due to a shoulder injury from the seat belt and her friend had a nice welt on her head from striking the post near the front windshield.  Her mom and family and our family spent about five hours in the ER that night.  It did knock out the traffic light system for about twenty-four hours. In over thirty years, we have paid insurance whether car or house, this was the first time we had to put in a claim.

The Southborough News has not been updated a few nights because of this. I had spent countless hours and visits to the insurance company. The adjuster had talked with the auto body shop about a price for repairs, and then with one full swoop of the button the car was totaled. Our daughter had bought the car herself with hard earned money. Now we find out because the adjuster totaled it beyond the repair bill that we if we want it repaired have to buy back the vehicle and lose out on prorated sales tax. The adjuster also forgot on his report many discrepancies about what the vehicle had for packages. We also looked within one hundred miles of Southborough for a similar car. Nothing under $6,000. It has been an uphill battle to get what we think is a fair amount for her vehicle to be repaired or replaced and it still hasn’t’ been resolved. Although our daughter did not cause the accident, going through the claims process practically makes us think as she was the operator in fault. It has been a tough situation that we hope we can make come to a suitable close ASAP.

So if I have been negligent in updating it has been for family situations and for that I apologize.

Tractor Accident Update

Route 9 Icon

August 1, 2009 - You just never know what is going to be on the "space" message board.

Selectmen's meeting - July 28, 2009 - Selectmen appointed Ms Kelly Rovendo to full time communications officer.  Kelly has worked for eight months for the Southborough police and came highly recommended by Acting Police Chief Jane Moran.  When asked by Selectmen why she applied for the job she quickly answered that she likes being a part of the team effort of the Police and Fire that they bring to the town.  She stated she looks forward to learning and growing with the department.  All of the selectmen commended her attitude and work ethic.  She will start in her new position on the next police full time rotation schedule.

The Southborough Fire Department Ladder Committee met with the selectmen and advisory committee to discuss a date for holding a special town meeting for the purchase of a new Quint (All in one vehicle for a ladder, pumper, water tank, fire hose and ground ladders).  In order to go to town meeting with a figure the committee and the town will have to prepare an RFP and bid.  Several sources have helped in hopes of defraying the cost of a new truck to replace the current defunct ladder truck.  A firemen's ball was held this past spring that raised over $83,000.  There has also been some private donations and donations from St. Mark's $10,000 per year for ten years, Fay School $10,000 a year for ten years and the New England Center for Children which has been one of the larger supporters for a new truck.  They will donate besides their $76,000 per year payment in lieu of taxes $6,000 twice a year for ten years making a $120,000 contribution.  Roughly there is a committed total of $350,000 for the new truck currently.  The estimated cost is in the vicinity of $900,000 +.  The question was asked why can't we share a ladder truck or depend on mutual aid.  Selectman Boland and Chief Mauro responded that those trucks could already be in use when we need them or that they could be in the shop making that decision not the best one for the Town of Southborough. 

Selectmen also considered several proposals from Police Chief Jane Moran about replacement of high mileage cruisers.  The department is looking to replace one cruiser with a Ford Explorer and are unsure if they should go for two as Ford will be discontinuing the Crown "Vics" police models.  Chief Moran said that the SUV most likely would have the higher value at the end of it's life vs. the cruisers that the department currently owns.  Southborough gets lots of snow and has several miles of dirt roads, hilly driveways and has always been in need of a 4 X 4 vehicle within the department. 

She also presented proposals to have three bylaws changed to come into compliance or to make them easier to enforce.  One would be to model the marijuana law after the town of Hudson for collection of fees which has already met the Attorney General's criteria.  Another would affect how the ACO collects fees and to change some of the current language on the bylaw especially addressing kennels.  She also brought up the Solicitor bylaw that the late police Chief William Webber had brought to the floor of Town meeting a few years ago.

The special town meeting warrant will be open until August 11, 2009.

PILOT Programs Discussed

(file photo Fay School Construction)

July 30, 2009 - Fairness When it came time to talk about support of the ladder truck and the town payment in lieu of taxes, Selectmen expressed dismay in the private boarding school Fay School and what they proposed.  The $10,000 per year for ten years is $5,000 more than what they have been paying per year.  Selectmen also interpreted their letter to say that there would be no other PILOT payment considered per year that the $10,000 would be solely for the fire truck.  St. Mark's plans to make the $10,000 per year for ten years in addition to their $20,000 PILOT.  The New England Center for Children has been a leader in supporting town services in Southborough.  They will donate $12,000 per year for ten years in addition to their $77,000 annual PILOT.  Selectmen Giorlandino was disappointed in Fay's move.  He stated he pays for a single family house over $6800 per year like many other residents in town.  For years now Fay School has only contributed $5,000 per year yet they are under major expansion right now and will be increasing their enrollment with the new primary wing. Fire ball committee chair Rebecca Waterfall made sure that the audience did notice that Fay School has at least matched the same amount as St. Mark's school (a private high school and boarding school).

Residents in the audience also expressed disappointment and reiterated all of the private homes that Fay school has bought up and taken off the tax roles in recent years.  The cost to send a child to Fay school (a private junior boarding school) runs from $19,000 for a grade 1 student to $25,200 for 6-9th grade day students.  On top of that boarding costs at the school run $42,750 to $50,000 per student. There are 380 students attending Fay School as listed on their website facts page.

Selectmen Boland who worked with the committee on approaching the non-profit schools also stated that they have not as yet heard back from the fourth which is the Harvard book depository and primate Center off Pine Hill Road.  Selectmen are in the process of developing a committee to study and report back on the PILOT program within the town of Southborough.  Mr. Boland also noted that the schools donate to the town in a non-monitory way by use of their fields and facilities for various things such as recreational skating.

In a statement from the Southborough Fire Chief: At 2:27 PM, the 9-1-1 communications center received a call for two men that were reported to have been run over by a tractor off of Chestnut Hill Road.

Police and fire personnel responded to find two people with injuries; a 76 year old male with serious and potentially life-threatening injuries, and a 23 year old with non-life threatening injuries.

Paramedics from the Southborough Fire Department attended to the injured. Life-Flight was called, but due it an extended estimated time of arrival, it was decided to transport the 76 year old male by ambulance to U-Mass Memorial University Campus. The 23 year old declined medical transport.

Caring For Your Pets in the Hot Weather

As the summer heat approaches, here are some preparedness tips to consider when caring for your pets:

• Never leave pets in a car, even with the windows down. The inside of a car can reach temperatures in excess of 150 degrees in a matter of minutes.

If possible, pets should be kept indoors during excessive heat.

• If keeping a pet outside, make sure that pets have adequate shelter from the sun and plenty of fresh water at all times.

Plan outside activities with your pets during the cooler parts of the day: early morning and evening. Limit the outside activity of your pets during the heat of the day.

• During hot weather sidewalks and pavement radiate excessive amounts of heat and can be too hot for the pads of your pet's paws. Consider that if the sidewalk is too hot for you to walk barefoot, it is too hot for your pet to walk on.

• Allow access to the coolest part of your home. If you don’t have air conditioning, or you turn it off while at work, make sure your pet can get to a cool place, such as a basement.

• Take extra precautions in hot weather for dogs that are elderly, overweight or snub-nosed.

• Always have a disaster plan in place for you, your family and your pets.

• Remember, WHEN YOU GO, THEY GO. DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM. If you are told to evacuate, take your pets with you. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PETS BEHIND.

Additional pet safety information can be accessed through the State of Massachusetts Animal Response Team website: www.smart-mass.org

Vandal Spree

July 26, 2009 - Over a dozen homes were hit by vandals this weekend in the Wildwood and Southwood Road area.  Mailboxes and light posts were completely smashed to the ground for no reason other than what someone may have thought was fun.  However, it wasn't fun and it was a costly night with many mailboxes pushed over and light posts left leaning or worse completely on the ground.  The lights themselves expensive energy saving bulbs smashed.  Some of which most likely according to residents contained mercury.  Vandalism is wasted energy that could be put to better use. If you have any information about this incident please contact the Southborough Police Department on their business line 508-485-2147.
