TROPICAL STORM DANNY
CONTINUES TO APPROACH AREA
Rain, Rough Surf & High, Dangerous Seas Present Issues
FRAMINGHAM, MA – The latest forecasts from National Weather Service indicate
that Tropical Storm Danny remains very disorganized. Danny continues to
travel toward Massachusetts, expecting to pass east of Nantucket, impacting
the area throughout the day on Saturday. State and local officials continue
to monitor events very closely, as the storm still could strengthen or
change its path. It remains important that everyone continue to carefully
monitor the storm’s progress.
Regardless of what path Danny takes, three issues will impact the entire
weekend. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) advises
swimmers, regardless of their abilities to stay out of the ocean waters, as
rough surf and the threat of life-threatening rip currents will again impact
our coast from Friday afternoon through Sunday along the entire
Massachusetts coast. Pleasure boaters are asked to be in port by Friday
evening with securely moored craft. If not, high seas and strong offshore
winds will place boaters in harms way. They must closely follow the U.S.
Coast Guard’s warning and directives. In addition, Danny and an unrelated
front will be bringing serious rain beginning Friday, lasting until Saturday
night. All of Southern New England can anticipate 1-3”, with Southeastern
Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands receiving 3-6” with some isolated
areas experiencing even higher amounts. Small stream and urban street
flooding can become an issue, so must be closely monitored.

Public School SAT Results Show Continued Improvement
Participating States, MA Students First in Math, Second in
Reading and Writing
Commonwealth's public high school students once more
scored near the top in performance and participation
nationally on the 2009 SAT exam while making gains in
performance on the reading and math exams, according to
results released by the College Board on Tuesday.
Overall, Massachusetts' public high school results
increased since 2008 by one point on the Critical
Reading exam (from 507 to 508), by two points in Math
(from 520 to 522), but decreased by one point in Writing
(from 505 to 504). Among states with participation rates
of 60 percent or higher, Massachusetts ranked first in
Math, second behind New Hampshire in Critical reading
(513), and second behind Connecticut in Writing (506).
students make me so proud,” said Governor Deval Patrick.
“This achievement is a credit to their hard work and the
commitment of their teachers and families. We owe it to
them to sharpen our focus on closing the achievement gap
and giving all students access to the best education
Governor Patrick recently filed legislation that will
allow for more rapid turnaround of underperforming
schools and promote innovative educational practices
with the main goal of preparing all students for success
in college and beyond.
Nationwide, public school students showed a decrease on
two of the three exams: in Critical Reading students
averaged 496, down from 497 in 2008; in Math students
averaged 510, the same as in 2008; and in Writing
students averaged 487, down from 488 in 2008.
results reaffirm that our high school students are
continuing to achieve at high levels, and are graduating
more prepared for college than ever before," said
Education Commissioner Mitchell Chester. "I congratulate
our students for their hard work and dedication, and
their teachers for their commitment to providing all
students with the tools, skills and supports they need
to succeed academically in high school and beyond."
increasingly important that our students not only
succeed in high school but continue their education past
12th grade,” said Education Secretary Paul
Reville. “The challenge is to continuously push the
education system to ensure that all students graduate
high school with the education and skills they need to
succeed in college and beyond.”
72 percent of Massachusetts public high school students
in the class of 2009 participated, the third highest
participation rate in the country behind Maine (100
percent) and New York (76 percent). The average
participation rate across the nation was 36 percent.
all ethnic groups, the biggest increase in participation
was among Hispanic students: 3,296 Hispanic students
participated in the testing this year, up from 3070 in
2008 and 2,159 in 2004. Similarly, AP participation
overall increased by 5 percent over 2008, with Hispanic
students increasing at the highest rate. In all 1,800
Hispanic students took at least one AP exam in 2009, up
from 1,478 in 2008.
results broken down by ethnic group show that minority
students continue to be outscored by their White and
Asian students made the greatest gains and showed
improvement on every test: up nine points to 519 on
Critical Reading, up nine points to 584 on Math, and
up eight points to 521 in Writing.
White students went up three points in Critical
Reading to 526; up four points in Math to 538 and
scored 522 in Writing, the same as last year.
African American students showed a decline in Math
(down two points to 422), Critical Reading (down
four points to 416) and Writing (down eight points
Hispanic students averaged 427 in Writing, up from
426 in 2008, and decreased in Critical Reading (433,
down from 434) and Math (440, down from 444).
Male students outscored females in Critical Reading
(510 to 506) and Math (538 to 507), while female
students outscored their male classmates in Writing
(511 to 496).
persistent achievement gaps in performance are evident
across all state and national assessments, and are very
troubling to me," Commissioner Chester said. "We face no
greater challenge in American education today than in
finding ways to narrow and eventually close the
achievement disparities between students from different
racial/ethnic backgrounds. All students – regardless of
race, income or zip code – deserve the skills, support
and tools necessary to achieve at high levels."

Chiefs Walk Boston Marathon route in Memory of Southborough Chief of
Police Lost to Cancer
Jimmy Fund Walk is Sept. 13
September 13, more than 50 police chiefs from across the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts will walk together on the historic course of the Boston
Marathon® to raise money for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber
Walk carries a particularly important meaning for the chiefs as they
will walk in honor of Chief Bill Webber, the Southborough chief of
police who lost his life to pancreatic cancer in October 2008. Webber
was a dedicated supporter of the Jimmy Fund for many years, walking
annually since 2003, and even participating as a Virtual Walker in last
September’s Walk, just a month before he passed away.
only 53 when pancreatic cancer claimed his life. He battled the disease
for 18 months. His wife, Kathleen, and two children, Kevin Webber and
Kathleen Barry, will walk 26.2 miles as a part of Team Police Chiefs.
“A lot of
chiefs were walking before me, and a lot of chiefs will walk after me,”
says team co-captain John Creighton, retired Uxbridge Chief of Police.
“Coming in contact with the patients and their families, we see their
hope and optimism. To be a part of that is an honor.”
Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk has been important to the Chiefs for 21 years.
Some years, the chiefs have held an across-the-state relay run leading
up to the Walk and then walked the last three miles from the Jimmy Fund
Clinic with patients and their families. Over the years, the Chiefs have
collectively raised $100,000 for cancer research and treatment by
September13, the chiefs will lace up their sneakers along with 8,000
other walkers from Massachusetts and 28 states across the country who
will walk with the goal of raising $6 million for cancer research at
Dana-Farber. Over the past 20 years, the Walk has raised more than $60
million for Dana-Farber.
Chiefs of Police chose the Jimmy Fund as their official charity in 1953.
The chiefs also show their support through the Hall of Badges, which
showcases 200 police badges from across the Commonwealth and is on
display at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Southborough Medical Expands
August 24, 2009 - Work moves along at Southborough Medical
Center on Newton Street. Tree removal has been taking place for the last
several weeks. The following was from a press release from
Southborough Medical this past January.
SOUTHBOROUGH - Southboro Medical Group (SMG), and
Marlborough Hospital and its parent organization, UMass Memorial
Health Care (UMass Memorial), jointly announced today an agreement
that will provide increased access to health care services for the
Route 495/MetroWest corridor.
Central to the collaboration is the development of an existing
building at 28 Newton Street, Southborough, attached to the existing
SMG facility. Work begins next month to build out the shell space to
be operational in fall 2009 with specialty physician practices and
diagnostic services. Physically connected to SMG, it will provide
easy access for the patients of the 75-member SMG physician group.
Services will also be provided for patients of referring physicians
throughout the region.
While final plans remain in the developmental phase, SMG,
Marlborough Hospital and UMass Memorial officials expect services at
28 Newton Street to include women's imaging including digital
mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, occupational medicine, and
specialty care such as medical oncology, orthopedics and neurology.
These services will be provided under the Marlborough Hospital/UMass
Memorial Health Care umbrella, as well as by local area physicians
and other partners. In addition, SMG will enhance its current
"For the convenience of our patients and to free up space to
serve the growing number of people seeking care at Marlborough
Hospital, we will move selected ambulatory services to this modern,
new facility in Southborough," said Marlborough Hospital President
and CEO John Polanowicz. "Plus, we expect some medical staff members
from both Marlborough Hospital and UMass Memorial Medical Group to
see patients in this building."
According to Joseph Nunes, SMG administrator, this collaboration
will complement services now available at his group practice, which
focuses on primary care for adults and children. "We are working
closely with Marlborough Hospital, UMass Memorial Health Care and
local physicians to make access to additional specialty health care
services readily available to our current patients and the community
at large," he said. "This collaboration builds on both the primary
and specialty care services now at SMG." Mr. Nunes also noted that
included in the plans is work to enhance SMG's current radiology
services to an advanced digital platform and purchase of a
multi-slice CT scanner.
Comprehensive women's imaging, including digital mammography,
stereotactic breast biopsy, bone density testing and ultrasound, is
expected to be the first program at 28 Newton Street. "Our patients
recognize that digital mammography is the most advanced technology
available," Mr. Nunes said. "We are excited to partner with
Marlborough Hospital immediately to make it available." On a
temporary basis, SMG will refer its patients to the digital
mammography service at nearby Marlborough Hospital. To accommodate
these patients, Marlborough Hospital is adding an additional digital
When the 28 Newton Street building opens this fall, Marlborough
Hospital plans to move all its screening and diagnostic mammography
along with its other women's imaging services to this location.
A focus of the 28 Newton Street facility will be care provided by
a range of physician specialists, including care for cancer
patients. As of fall 2009, the site will provide a comfortable new
home for the medical oncology services that continue to be available
until that time at Marlborough Hospital in conjunction with the
UMass Memorial Cancer Center. In addition to care delivered by
medical oncologists, hematologists and certified oncology nurses,
services include onsite testing, chemotherapy treatments,
patient/family education, nutritional support and therapeutic
Also slated to move is the Marlborough Hospital MedWorks
Occupational Health Services. MedWorks is the region's leading
provider of a broad range of job-related medical services to help
employers meet regulatory requirements and to keep their workers
safe, healthy and productive. Marlborough Hospital officials note
that moving the MedWorks program to the Southborough location will
make it easier for area workers to access employment screenings and
evaluations, along with treatment for workplace injuries.
The move of these Marlborough Hospital services to 28 Newton
Street has an added benefit for our community, noted Mr. Polanowicz.
"We look forward to using the vacated space at Marlborough Hospital
to support expansion of our emergency room facilities to better
serve our patients," he said.
"UMass Memorial Health Care is excited to collaborate with the
highly regarded physicians of Southboro Medical Group in a program
that will directly impact the lives of tens of thousands of patients
and their families," said UMass Memorial President and CEO John
O'Brien. UMass Memorial is the region's leading health care system
and clinical partner of UMass Medical School.
