The Rural Boros
August 15, 2009 - The "Boro" towns still have several
operating farms within their town bounds. This morning on the way to
buy hay I encountered this Westborough Hereford herd crossing route 30.
The connection between land and farms and the need they provide us
with - fruits, meats and vegetables sometimes gets lost when we just go to
the market to pick up our groceries. Unfortunately, farming is also one of
the top ten dangerous jobs in America as attested by the recent farming
accident that killed Mr. Charles Hanson.
Charles D. Hanson
FRAMINGHAM Charles D. Hanson, age 76, a lifelong resident of
Framingham, died Tuesday August 11, 2009 at UMASS Medical Center in

then began work on the family farm with his father in 1960. Mr.
Hanson was a member of the Massachusetts Farm Bureau for over 40
years, serving on the County Committee at various times. He also
served on the Farm Service Agency, Board of Directors, and was

of the Phil Ernst Sr. Golf League at Millwood Golf Course and was an
avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. He also enjoyed spending

EREMICH, PAULINE V., 89
Ocala - Pauline V. Eremich, 89, passed away during the early morning hours
of August 11, 2009 at the Ocala Legacy Hospice House after a short illness.
She was born January 13, 1920 in Cambridge, Massachusetts and graduated from
Cambridge High & Latin and Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School. In August
1941 she married her best friend Walter with whom she spent 67 wonderful
years. She spent her time as a dedicated homemaker and mother raising four
children while living in both Dedham and Southborough, MA. Pauline and
Walter moved to On Top of the World in February 1987. With a heart of gold
and remarkable spirit Pauline became a matriarchal wonder to her family
while still finding time to dabble in activities and travel to exciting
areas. She enjoyed playing cards with a knack for cribbage and hand & foot
canasta. Pauline was an active member of numerous clubs at OTOW including
the Shuffleboard, New England, Cribbage and Friendship Clubs. Pauline was a
site to see even in her older years. If she wasn't found in the kitchen
preparing something special for her family it was easy to predict she was
walking the bustling streets of an amusement park with her grandchildren or
roughing it at the campground in her motorhome. Pauline is predeceased by
her loving husband Walter and will be greatly missed by her children Pauline
Kalen of Ocala, FL, Walter Eremich Jr. of Midlothian, VA, Susan Nugent of
Waldorf, MD, Carol Remillard of Whitinsville, MA, six grandchildren and ten
great- grandchildren. A funeral mass will be held at the Queen of Peace
Church, SR 200 at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, August 14, 2009. In lieu of flowers
donations may be made to Hospice of Marion County c/o Legacy House, P.O. Box

Perseid meteor shower is about to peak. The show begins after sunset on
Tuesday, August 11th, and continues until the sun rises on Wednesday, August
12th. A time of particular interest is 0800-0900 GMT (1-2 a.m. PDT) on the
12th. That's when Earth is expected to pass through a denser-than-usual
filament of dust from Perseid parent Comet Swift-Tuttle. Forecasters are
unsure what will happen, but some have speculated that meteor rates could
surge as high as 200 per hour. Bright moonlight will blot out many of those
Perseids, but even a fraction of 200 is a good show.
Visit http://spaceweather.com for full
coverage of the Perseids.
If it's dark
where you live, go outside and look for meteors. Earth is still inside the
debris stream of Comet Swift-Tuttle and, as a result, the Perseid meteor
shower is still active. Worldwide meteor counts raise the possibility that
the show could be better tonight, Aug. 12th, than it was last night, Aug.
11th. Be alert for meteors after sunset.

From waking to the rooster’s crow to
catching the 8 am train, how Americans judge
and value time has changed over the
centuries. “For All Time: Clocks and Watches
from the National Heritage Museum” is a new
exhibition, opening August 15, 2009, that
explores the story of timekeeping through
spectacular objects drawn from the Museum’s
own collection. The Museum is pleased to
present a focused look at this part of our
holdings, which has long been popular with
visitors. The 95 clocks and 22 watches in
the exhibition—including some clocks that
chime and tick—range in dates from the 1500s
to the early 1900s. Every clock in the
exhibition is a complicated machine with its
own story to tell about who used, made or
marketed it and, most interestingly, how it
fit into Americans’ relationship with time.
The exhibition is on view through February

PROTONEX AND ULTRACELL
PARTNER TO DEVELOP AND
MARKET NEW PORTABLE POWER SOLUTIONS
DATELINE: SOUTHBOROUGH, MA;
Protonex Technology Corporation (LSE: AIM: PTX and PTXU), a
leading provider of
advanced fuel cell power systems, today announces that it has partnered with
UltraCell Corporation, a
producer of portable fuel cell products, to cooperate in the development,
commercialization, and sale of advanced fuel cell power solutions and fuels
the U.S. Military.
Under the terms of the
agreement, the companies plan to focus on three distinct types of
efforts: 1) collaboration
on existing military hardware, 2) development of a common fuel, and 3) joint
and marketing efforts. On
the hardware side, the companies will integrate and test power solutions
UltraCell’s XX25 and XX55
fuel cell power sources with Protonex’ Soldier Power Manager (SPM) and
Battlefield Power Manager (BPM)
products. Both companies will further develop and promote a new
plug-and-play standard for the U.S. Military. The resulting power solutions
to add significant customer
advantages to deliver specific portable power capabilities that are
unavailable to the market.
On the fuel side, Protonex
and UltraCell share a common methanol/water fuel mixture in their portable
power systems as both
systems are based on Reformed Methanol Fuel Cell (RMFC) technology. A joint
goal for both companies,
and one of significant value to military customers, will be to achieve a
universal fuel for both
Protonex and UltraCell portable power systems through common specifications,
extensive testing, and supplier qualification.
Finally, both companies
intend to support each other in joint marketing and sales for these specific
solutions. UltraCell’s fuel
cell products currently provide power below the 100 watt range while
series of products output
between 100 to 1,000 watts of power, making UltraCell’s XX25 and XX55 watt
complementary with Protonex’ M250-CX fuel cell system operating at 250 watts
Protonex’ SPM and BPM
series of power managers are compatible with a wide range of fuel cells and
military hardware above and
below 100 watts. These Protonex power management products dramatically
reduce a soldier’s
logistics burden by minimizing the number and type of batteries and other
sources a soldier must
carry. Both Protonex and UltraCell offer advanced power solutions that are
designed to meet the
stringent, rugged power needs of demanding military and commercial
“We are very pleased to be
partnering with UltraCell to combine our robust power solutions and to
accelerate our sales and
marketing efforts,” stated Greg Cipriano, Vice President, Military
Marketing for Protonex. “We
expect that our combined complementary product platforms to result in
portable power solutions
that offer significantly enhanced capabilities for our military customers.
Military has been searching
for a universal portable power solution and fuel for a long time, and we now
have the combined team and
work effort that can deliver on that vision.”
In July and in partial
support of this effort, the United States Army awarded Protonex an
$345,000 contract. The
purpose of this contract is to continue work on advanced intelligent soldier
portable power solutions,
including extensive interoperability testing between the UltraCell XX25 fuel
and the Protonex SPM and
BPM power managers for a wide variety of field applications.

for the third consecutive year. The LIFT² program offers middle school and
high school science, math, and technology teachers an opportunity to
participate in a professional development program that combines
graduate-level course work with a relevant, technology-based externship.
This summer, VHB welcomed our third extern, Carol Miller, a Physics and AP
Physics teacher at St. Mark’s College Prepatory School in Southborough,
LIFT² is designed to raise student awareness and interest in science,
technology, engineering, and math, in an effort to increase the pipeline of
students motivated to pursue these college majors and careers. The
externship provides teachers with the opportunity to meet with various
professionals and learn ways to effectively bring real world experience into
their math and science classes.
“From the moment I decided to become a teacher I became dedicated to not
only teaching my students physics but showing them how physics directly
relates to their lives,” says Miller. “I’m very excited to have this
opportunity at VHB to reconnect with engineers and scientists and gather new
and exciting information to bring back to the classroom.”
By hosting science and math teachers VHB is sharing valuable information
about the engineering profession, and in turn, the teachers increase student
awareness and interest in science, technology, engineering and math. Carol
met with VHB staff in offices throughout New England.
WANNON WATER SELECTS
VIRYANET'S FIELD SERVICE MANAGEMENT PRODUCT TO AUTOMATE ACTIVITIES OF FIELD
CREWS AND CALL CENTRE STAFF
Australian Water Utility
decides that working with ViryaNet will provide extensive benefits to their
operations, and facilitate improvements in customer service.
Southborough, MA - August
11, 2009 - ViryaNet Limited (VRYAF.PK), a leading provider of software
applications that optimize business processes for field service management,
today announced that Wannon Water has selected the ViryaNet product for call
taking, dispatch, and case management in its systems maintenance branch.
Wannon Water selected the
ViryaNet product to facilitate their strategic plan to achieve operational
excellence by improving customer service, accuracy of reporting, and
improvements in data collection. The project, as a whole, will benefit field
crews by providing access to corporate systems and information as well as
improve safety, while crew managers will benefit from the ability to
schedule and track work progress.
Another important benefit
of ViryaNet's solution to Wannon Water will be the ability to capture asset
related data which will inform the asset management system, allowing better
planning for maintenance and replacement programs.
The ViryaNet solution is a
holistic, integrated, and customer-focused solution for optimizing field
service operations. The solution consists of several components, including
call center functions, work order management, scheduling and dispatch
functionality, workflow, mobility, real-time monitoring capabilities, a full
suite of business intelligence tools, and powerful integration capabilities.
The solution's value is the agility it has to manage business process
exceptions, in addition to the routine processes that are experienced by
Wannon Water will roll the
initial implementation out to field crews and call centre staff. The initial
implementation will focus on the Wannon Water systems maintenance branch.
These crews are primarily involved with sewer and water network maintenance,
responding to customer enquiries and performing programmed maintenance on
Wannon Water network assets.
At Wannon Water, the
ViryaNet solution will be interfaced to their existing Customer Relationship
Management system, asset management system, Geographic Information System,
and SCADA telemetry systems.
"Wannon Water is pleased to
be working with ViryaNet to provide mobile information systems to its asset
maintenance crews. The crews are looking forward to having access to up to
date information in the field which will assist Wannon Water in providing
excellent service to its customers," stated Andrew Jeffers, General Manager
Service Delivery at Wannon Water. "The ViryaNet product is widely used in
the Victorian water industry and has brought many benefits to its users. It
closely matches our requirements for call taking, dispatch and case
management. It also has a flexible and customizable interface which is
intuitive to use and will easily allow for expansion as we identify further
opportunities for its use."
"We are pleased to welcome
Wannon Water into the ViryaNet family," stated Memy Ish-Shalom, President &
Chief Executive Officer, ViryaNet. "We look forward to a successful
implementation and to supporting Wannon Water in its pursuit of service
excellence to their customers."

Re-Connect with Friends at Summer Nights, August 30
– Due to the popularity and success of last year’s August date, Summer
Nights 2009 will again be held at the summer’s end. Last year’s festival
was held on its rain date in August and was the largest turn out yet. The
Southborough Summer Nights Committee estimates that over 2000 residents and
friends came out to enjoy the free entertainment and fireworks, and to catch
up with friends. It was decided that it is better to hold the event just
before school is about to start rather than try to squeeze in one more end
of the year party in June. “Last year people really seemed to enjoy
themselves and the chance to visit with friends and neighbors after the
summer vacation. Rather than a kick-off for summer it was really more like
a celebration to the end of summer, and a kick off for the upcoming school
year.” said Doreen Ferguson, Director of Recreation.
The festival is a partnership between the Summer Nights
volunteer committee and the Southborough Recreation Department and begins
Sunday, August 30th at 5:30 pm at the Neary School on Parkerville
Road. Fireworks will be set off around 8:15pm. Admission is free and
parking is available at the Neary School parking lot with overflow parking
available at Trottier Middle School via the Deerfoot Road entrance. A rain
date of Monday, August 31st has been set.
Activities for children include the popular fire truck slide
and “Bubble Romp”, pony rides, moonwalk, obstacle course and rock climbing
wall. Back this year by popular demand is the dunk tank, where folks can
attempt to dunk their friends and family members into a 500 gallon tank of
water. It is recommended that parents pack towels or a change of clothes for
children who want to go in the Bubble Romp or for anyone being dunked in the
dunk tank. All areas will be blocked off from traffic so that people and
children can roam safely from one activity to the next.
The Infractions will provide live entertainment. Their
repertoire includes a variety of popular hits from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s
and is enjoyed by all age groups. The live music is being sponsored by
Walgreen’s Pharmacy of Southborough. A varied menu of finger foods and
treats will be available for purchase from local establishments including
pizza from Domino’s, sandwiches from Quizno’s, ice cream from The Creamery
and sushi and chicken wings fromYama Zakura of Northboro.
As in years past, the evening will end with a spectacular
fireworks display over the Neary Field at dusk. Again this year, Bill
Depietri of Capitol Group Properties will co-sponsor the fireworks display
along with a new sponsor; the non-profit organization Friends of
Southborough Recreation. Other new Southborough sponsors include Choice Car
Wash and Long Cadillac Hummer Saab. Annual supporters of the event include
Southborough House of Pizza, Tomasso Trattoria and Italian Market, The Fay
School, Brendon Properties, Yama Zakura, Middlesex Saving Bank, Wellen
Construction and St. Mary’s Credit Union.
To make a donation or to sponsor an event, contact Robin
Martin at 508-333-1221. For all other information about the event contact
Southborough Recreation at 508-229-4452.

MEMA ADVISES CAUTION
DURING EXTREMELY HOT WEATHER
FRAMINGHAM, MA – With the
extremely hot weather the Commonwealth is presently experiencing, the
Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is advising people to be
cautious during this period of extreme heat, and is offering some tips to
help keep cool and safe.
“A few common sense measures can reduce heat-related problems, especially
for the elderly, the very young and people with respiratory ailments, who
are more susceptible to the effects of high temperatures,” said MEMA
Director Don Boyce. “As this extreme weather continues, many communities are
setting up cooling centers to assist those seeking relief from the
Here are some tips to follow during hot, humid weather:
Slow down, avoid strenuous activity. Do not try to do too
much on a hot day.
Wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing.
Light colors will reflect heat and sunlight and help maintain normal body
temperature. Protect your face with a wide-brimmed hat.
Drink plenty of water regularly and often, even if you do not
Limit intake of alcoholic beverages. They can actually
dehydrate your body.
Eat well-balanced, light, regular meals. Avoid high protein
foods that increase metabolic heat.
Stay indoors as much as possible.
If you do not have air conditioning, stay on your lowest
floor, out of the sun. Electric fans do not cool the air, but they do help
evaporate perspiration, which cools your body.
Go to a place where you can get relief from the heat, such as
air conditioned schools, libraries, theaters and other community facilities
that may offer refuge during the warmest times of the day.
Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun with
drapes, shades, awnings or louvers. Outdoor awnings or louvers can reduce
the heat that enters a home by up to 80%.
Avoid too much sunshine. Sunburn slows the skin’s ability to
cool itself. If you are outside, use sunscreen lotion with a high SPF (Sun
Protection Factor) rating.
Never leave children or pets alone in a closed vehicle.
Check on family, friends and neighbors.
In normal weather, the body’s internal thermostat produces perspiration that
evaporates and cools the body. However, in extreme heat and high humidity,
evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain normal
temperature. Following these recommendations can prevent heat cramps, heat
exhaustion and heat stroke.
Heat Cramps are muscular pains and spasms due to heavy
exertion. They usually involve the abdominal muscles or legs and are caused
by loss of water due to heavy sweating. Treatment includes getting the
person to a cooler place to rest in a comfortable position. Give the person
a half glass of cool water every fifteen minutes.
Heat Exhaustion typically occurs when people over-exert
themselves in a warm, humid place where body fluids are lost through heavy
sweating. Blood flow to the skin increases, causing blood flow to vital
organs to decrease, resulting in a form of mild shock. The skin will be
cool and moist, appearing either pale or flushed. The victim may have
headache and/or experience nausea. There may also be dizziness. It is
important to treat the victim promptly, so the condition does not intensify
into Heat Stroke. Get the person to a cooler place. Remove or loosen tight
clothing and apply cool, wet cloths, such as towels or sheets. If the
person is conscious, supply a half glass of cool water every fifteen
minutes, making sure the person drinks slowly. Let the person rest in a
comfortable position, and watch carefully for changes in his or her
Heat Stroke is the most serious heat emergency. It is life
threatening. The victim’s temperature control system, which produces
sweating to cool the body, shuts down. The body temperature can rise so
high that brain damage and death may result if the body is not cooled
quickly. The victim will have hot, red skin, with changes of
consciousness. Their pulse will be rapid, but weak and they will experience
rapid, shallow breathing. Body temperature can rise to 105F. If the person
was sweating from heavy work or exercise, skin may be wet; otherwise it will
feel dry. A person suffering from Heat Stroke needs immediate assistance.
Call 911 and move the person to a cooler place. Immerse in a cool bath or
wrap in wet sheets. Watch for breathing problems. Keep the person lying
down and continue to cool the body any way you can. If the victim refuses
water, is vomiting, or there are changes in the level of consciousness, do
not give anything to eat or drink.
The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is
the state agency responsible for coordinating federal, state, local,
voluntary and private resources during emergencies and disasters in the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MEMA provides leadership to: develop plans
for effective response to all hazards, disasters or threats; train emergency
personnel to protect the public; provide information to the citizenry; and
assist individuals, families, businesses and communities to mitigate
against, prepare for, and respond to and recover from emergencies, both
natural and man made. For additional information about MEMA go to

Tomato and Potato problem
August 9, 2009 - An Tomato blight disease which is a relative of the
1800's potato famine has affected several tomato plants around town. The
state of MA Department of Agriculture has issued the following information.
blight, a destructive disease caused
by Phytophthora infestans, is a
pathogen of tomato and potato plants
that has recently been found in
several states in the Northeast,
including Maine, New York and
Pennsylvania. The late blight has
been identified on tomato
transplants sold in big box stores
and other garden centers under the
brand name Bonnie Plants, and has
also been found in a potato field in
Pennsylvania. Because a few
instances of late blight have now
been detected on tomato plants in
our state, the Massachusetts
Department of Agricultural Resources
(MDAR) is asking anyone growing
tomatoes or potatoes to monitor them
for signs of the disease, in order
to prevent its further spread.
Late blight, the disease that was
responsible for the Irish potato
famine in the mid-19th century, is
caused by a fungus-like pathogen
that spreads through splashing rain
or wind currents. Spores can
disperse from one to several miles
from the point of origin, with the
infection spreading most efficiently
in conditions of high moisture and
temperatures ranging from 60° to
Symptoms of late blight include
small olive green or brown lesions
on the upper surface of the foliage
or the stems. Under moist
conditions, there is a white, fuzzy
growth on the underside of the
leaves where the lesions occur, but
the absence of this growth does not
rule out late blight. Eventually the
lesions turn black, leaves start to
die, and then the entire plant dies.
This is a serious, destructive
disease that can spread quite
rapidly when conditions are right,
infecting an entire field within
days. Any gardeners who suspect they
have tomato or potato plants
infected with late blight should dig
them up, place them in plastic bags,
and dispose of them in the trash.
Commercial growers wishing to
control late blight should begin
spraying fungicide immediately, even
before symptoms are spotted.
Spraying must continue regularly,
using a product containing
chlorothalonil, a state restricted
fungicide which requires
certification to use. Growers should
be prepared to destroy the plants if
the late blight starts to become

blight of potato and tomato,
