EEA Seeks Ideas for Reorganization, Public-Private Partnerships, and Regulatory Models

Budget challenges prompt search for new ways to meet environmental goals

BOSTON - The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) has scheduled six “listening sessions” to take public input on options for changes in administrative structures and programs to meet environmental goals in light of budget challenges.  

After four rounds of spending reductions over the past two fiscal years and in anticipation of an equally challenging budget for next year, Governor Deval Patrick has instructed his Cabinet Secretaries to present him with options for departmental reorganization and consolidation, streamlined operations and procedures, and new models for doing the public’s business. In response to this directive, EEA Secretary Ian Bowles has named teams of EEA and department officials to explore three areas:

·                       Public-Private Partnerships – Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Commissioner Rick Sullivan and EEA Senior Advisor and Counsel Christian Scorzoni

o                                    Is there potential for greater sharing of responsibility for the management and operation of DCR properties with other public and private entities in a way that preserves and enhances opportunity for active, outdoor recreation by the public?

·                       New Regulatory Models – Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Laurie Burt and EEA General Counsel Ken Kimmell

o                                    DEP has had great success with its 21E hazardous waste program, which relies on private waste site clean-up by licensed professionals, with DEP audits ensuring quality of results. Are there other ways to achieve environmental results by innovative means?

·                       Reorganization/Consolidation of State Agencies – EEA Undersecretary for Environment Philip Griffiths and Assistant Secretary for Policy David Cash

o                                    Could EEA and its agencies be reconfigured to consolidate resources, clarify missions, and reduce duplication of effort?

“Governor Patrick and I have worked hard with EEA agencies to manage our budgetary challenges to date so as to have the least impact on our environmental mission,” said Secretary Bowles. “But the time has come to think bigger. In that, we need the help of everyone who cares about our parks, beaches, rivers, streams, and forests.”

The EEA teams responsible for developing options for Secretary Bowles and Governor Patrick to consider in each of these areas are soliciting ideas and input from the public over the coming month. The schedule for public listening sessions is as follows:

Public Private Partnerships

·                       Tues., Nov. 17, 4-6 p.m., 100 Cambridge St., Boston, 2nd floor Conference Room A-B-C

·                       Wed., Nov. 18, 4-6 p.m., Governor’s Western Mass. Office, 436 Dwight St., Springfield, Hearing Room

New Regulatory Models

·                       Tues., Nov. 17, 4-6 p.m., DEP office, 617 Main Street, Worcester

·                       Fri., Nov. 20, 12 noon-2 p.m., DEP Office, 1 Winter Street, Boston, Washington Street Conference Room 2nd floor

Reorganization/Consolidation

·                       Mon., Nov. 16, 4-6 p.m., DAR Amherst Office, 101 University Drive, Amherst, Main Conference Room

·                       Thurs., Nov. 19, 4-6 p.m., 100 Cambridge Street, Boston, 2nd floor, Conference Room B

In addition, written comments may be submitted by mail to EEA Budget Reform Teams, 100 Cambridge St. Suite 900, Boston, MA 02114 or by email to the following addresses:

A Day to Thank Our Veterans

Whether your schedule finds you working, doing errands or enjoying a day with family, please make the time to thank a veteran on Veteran’s Day. 

This Veteran’s Day, take a moment to reflect on our daily freedoms and remember the men and women willing sacrifice everything to protect them. Today we’re reminded that the American ideals we celebrate on the 4th of July are only possible because of those who risk all to defend them.  

One of the most important ways to thank our veterans is by providing support and opportunity when they return home.  As a member of the Joint Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs, I was proud to represent our district and join my colleagues last week to pass legislation to do just that. The legislation will create opportunity for returning veterans by giving disabled veteran-owned businesses a leg up in competing for state contracts. It will make some military training transferable for state certification requirements. The legislation also creates a Commonwealth Medal of Liberty to honor Massachusetts service members killed in action. There is plenty of work to be done to fulfill our duty to veterans, but this legislation is an important step forward.  Its passage honors Massachusetts veterans of every generation.

From the war of our independence to today’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Commonwealth’s soldiers have answered the call to protect us and our liberties. They and their families continue to make enormous sacrifices on our behalf and today we express our gratitude and our thanks.

State Representative Carolyn Dykema represents the towns of Holliston, Hopkinton, Medway (pct. 1), Southborough (pct. 2 & 3) and Westborough (pct. 2).

Sudbury Valley Trustees and the Friends of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge host a Nature Artists Reception

On Sunday November, SVT and FARNWR hosted a reception entitled “Discovering Echoes of a Place: Studies in Landscape and Still Life Painting” of artists from the Metrowest area.  These nature inspired watercolor paintings were on display at the barn at SVT’s Wolbach Farm.  Cecilia Sharma of Sudbury is the teacher of all the students, running workshops is Sudbury, Wayland, and Wellesley.  With over 50 watercolor paintings on display, guests were shown a number of artistic views of the beauty of this region.  The beautiful weather brought out a great number of people.  All the food and beverage were provided by the artists. 

Sudbury Valley Trustees is a regional land trust that conserves land and protects wildlife habitat.  Currently, SVT is responsible for the protection and care of over 100 properties totaling 3,600 acres of diverse conservation lands that include wetlands, sensitive habitats, trails and other open spaces including major sanctuaries.

The Friends of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge is a non-profit organization established to work with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service to protect the refuge's valuable resources for future generations of wildlife and humans through stewardship and education.

November 8, 2009 -

Recently I questioned myself why it was necessary to put my thoughts about Veterans Day in writing and did it really make any difference whether or not I sent my message.

Then I stepped back to put it all back into perspective.

Two young pilots from Massachusetts and their crews killed in the air over Afghanistan.

Thirteen soldiers and civilians at Ft. Hood whose lives were taken on their home soil.

Seven members of a Coast Guard helicopter lost off the coast of California during a training evolution.

The commissioning crew of the USS New York ( LPD-21) who have the honor to serve aboard and feel the bow cut through the waves – A bow made of the steel from the Twin Towers.

Those who wear the uniform of our country put their lives on the line 24-7-365.

Those who wear the uniform of our country carry on the tradition, honor and pride of the men and women who went before.

Make note, those serving today were not drafted. They volunteered. They entered the service of their choice in order to better themselves and this world and they swore the same allegiance to this country to “defend it – against all enemies – foreign and domestic” as those who have gone before them.

So as I have in the past, I ask each of you to take time on this Wednesday November 11th 2009, to remember our Veterans and to thank a Veteran for their service.

Keep in your thoughts, those serving at this very moment. Feel in your heart the pain of those families that have lost a loved one.

Remember those who are recovering from their wounds physically and emotionally at home and at Veteran Hospitals around this nation or sadly even in the streets of our nation.

This day isn’t about half price sales; advertisements announcing special video game releases or a buy one get one free slogan. It isn’t just about a day off from school..

It is about honoring the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - The end of the War to end all Wars. Sadly, we know all to well that hasn’t happened.

It is about honoring the sacrifices of those who have defended this country in our past and those who serve our country today.

Thank a Veteran. Shake their hand. Welcome them home.

Express your appreciation for a job well done with a simple “Thank you for your service”

Remember this Veterans Day

The ability to perceive relationships between objects (visuospatial skills) may decline years before a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests.  Click to read about it in HealthDay.

Martha Jackson
Name:  Martha Jackson
Town:  Stratham, NH
Career: Higher education administration and teaching, retired.  
Alzheimer's touched my life in a very personal way when my dad, John Foley,  was diagnosed with the disease almost 30 years ago at the age of 59. He died 10 years later. My mother cared for him at home for about four years, and with the support of me and my three siblings, she placed him in nursing home care for the last six years of his life.  
What would I want to tell people about Alzheimer's?  Well, I'm not able to sugarcoat it in all honesty. It's a horrible disease.  We all do the best we can to deal with it. But it's very important not to lose hope. If it happens in your family, there is help. There are resources and people available to answer your questions. here is help for those of you who care for someone with Alzheimer's at home: adult daycare, visiting nurses, etc.  When my dad had Alzheimer's, there were no treatments available.For me there is hope through research, and that's why I volunteer at the Alzheimer's Association. Through helping the staff in their efforts and by donating money annually, I feel in some small way part of the effort that will one day eradicate this devastating disease.  
Help Your Children Understand Alzheimer's
If you have a parent or other family member who has Alzheimer's, it is important to remember that the diagnosis not only affects you, but your children as well.  Adults have the ability and capacity to understand the disease process and what to expect. This knowledge needs to be passed along to the children of the family. Children may not understand what exactly is happening with their loved one, but they notice the changes.  It is important to talk to your kids and help them understand Alzheimer's disease in an age appropriate way.
