Snow on the Fire Department Christmas Trees

Issued at: 12:26 PM EST 12/5/09, expires at: 8:30 PM EST 12/5/09

Winter weather advisory remains in effect until 7 am est sunday,
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 7 am est sunday.
This advisory covers much of northern Connecticut, western and central Massachusetts.
Rain and snow in the lower elevations of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and northern Connecticut is falling as all snow in the high terrain.
Precipitation will become periodically heavier this afternoon and change to all snow everywhere with accumulations on grassy areas spreading to all untreated pavements between 3 pm and 6 pm.
Snow may fall heavily with visibility briefly under one half mile this evening before tapering off and ending after midnight. Storm total snow accumulations are expected to range from 2 to 5 inches, except around 6 inches with locally higher amounts possible on the higher terrain of western hartford county, northern tolland county connecticut and the worcester hills.
Snow this evening may still be wet and this could allow for scattered power outages if accumulations of more than 4 inches occur on limbs and power lines in north central Connecticut. There is a low probability that a portion of this winter weather advisory may have to be upgraded to a winter storm warning at 4pm, if it looks as though snow amounts will be higher.
Precautionary/preparedness actions,
A winter weather advisory is issued when snow and/or ice is forecast to develop in the affected areas, but accumulations are expected to be light. Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult, but not impossible, on untreated roadways and sidewalks. When temperatures are below freezing, motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop.

 

WINTER PARKING BAN 2009/2010

No Parking is allowed on any public way in the Town of Southborough from 12 midnight until 6:00 am or during any snowstorm. This ban is in effect from December 1, 2009 through March 15, 2010.

Parent Technology Workshop

~ Jean Tower, Director of Technology - ARHS

December 8

7:00 PM

Algonquin HS Library

I am pleased to announce the first in a series of Parent Technology Workshops. All members of the community are welcome. Please see the agenda for December 8 below. I am very excited to have Dan DelVecchio, Senior Systems Engineer, Apple Inc presenting. I’m sure his session will be especially fascinating. At a recent conference, I saw and was amazed at some of the new features Dan is going to share with us. We also have three of our own teachers, all presenting stimulating and engaging projects. They will be showing projects and lessons that make instructional use of the interactive web.

In future sessions, we will also be offering hands-on workshops, where participants will experience technology in a classroom environment much the same way our students do.

All workshops will be publicized through newsletters and I will be posting them on our website. Please check

www.nsboro.k12.ma.us/technology/  to stay informed.

7:00 to 7:45

The iPod Touch and Mobility Applications for the Classroom

Presenter: Dan DelVecchio, Senior Systems Engineer, Apple Inc.

The learning landscape is changing in drastic and exciting ways. With the advent of mobility tools like the iPod Touch and a number of free applications from the iTunes App Store teachers can connect with students in class in unprecedented ways. Parents, your questions will be welcomed and we will be sure to show some applications you will find engaging.

7:45 to 8:00

Blogs and Teacher Websites Enhancing the Curriculum

Presenter: Matthew Querino, Algonquin Regional High School Teacher

Many Algonquin Regional High School teachers use technology with their students to expand and enhance the curriculum. Matt will share weblog assignments and his teacher website, where he can check homework online. He will demonstrate how he integrates multimedia with an example of a video of an author interview. Matt makes me wish I could get a “do over” for high school!

SHOW TIMES:December 2009
12/11 (8:00 pm)

 
DESCRIPTION:

National broadcasts of the Christmas edition of O’Donovan’s radio program, A Celtic Sojourn over the past 18 years have proven extraordinarily popular. Celtic Pagan and Christian traditions have a very strong link to the music of this season. 


The concert, called A Christmas Celtic Sojourn with Brian O’Donovan, was first launched in 2003 and reflected the easy, relaxed and diverse offerings of the yearly national radio program. 


Irish super group Solas, led by Seamus Egan who has taken on the role of Music Director for Christmas Celtic Sojourn, will be on stage. Singer Sean Keane will make a rare New England appearance.   Cara Dillon, one of the fastest rising stars in Irish traditional music, will be joined by her husband, pianist Sam Lakeman. Dance director,  Kieran Jordan is planning again what has become one of the most anticipated aspects of the show, its spectacular Irish dancing. And some additional artists will be announced in the Fall. 


Artistically directed again by Paula Plum, this promises to be one of the most exciting Christmas Celtic Sojourns concerts yet. 

Running time: TBA

Ticket Prices: $46-$58

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program

MISSION:
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

GOAL:
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

OBJECTIVES:
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

ACTIVITIES:
The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine toys for tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year,
which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

Governor Patrick is requesting both the American and Commonwealth flags be lowered to half staff from sunrise until sunset on December 2, 2009 in honor of Staff Sergeant Matthew Pucino killed in action.

Please be advised that Governor Patrick has ordered that the United States flag and the Commonwealth flag be lowered to half-staff at all state buildings from sunrise until sunset on Wednesday, December 2, 2009, in honor of Staff Sergeant Matthew Pucino of Plymouth, Massachusetts who was killed in action in Afghanistan on November 23, 2009.

This gubernatorial order applies to:

1.  The main or administration building of each public institution of the Commonwealth, e.g. town and city halls

2.  Other state-owned or state-controlled buildings

3.  All state military installations

December 1, 2009 - The Cedar Swamp Conservation Trust has received notification that CSCT’s project which has appealed the permits issued to the Town of Hopkinton for a proposed wastewater treatment facility has been selected for funding by the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund. CSCT has benefited from a multi-year history of grant funding from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund to support the organizations programs that protect the areas Outstanding Resource Waters.

            Outstanding Resource Waters (ORWs) are the highest classification of waters in the United States. ORWs are granted the most stringent level of protection by state and federal laws. The Federal Clean Water Act’s Anti-Degradation Policy for ORWs found in Part 40 of the federal Code of Regulations mandates that states maintain and protect the quality of waters classified as ORWs.

            To obtain the funding commitment from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund (NEGEF) CSCT supplied, for NEGEF’s consideration, copies of documents filed during the appeals and information from research conducted by a team of attorneys who have concluded that the federal laws support CSCT’s claims in these appeals.

            The funding from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund will be combined with donations CSCT has received to fund a state or federal court appeal of the Hopkinton permits should the Commissioner of the State’s Department of Environmental Protection rule against CSCT in the pending Final Decisions to be issued in the two active appeals.

Southborough Resident Completes JFK 50 Miler

Theodore Roosevelt wrote that “our country calls not for the life of ease but for the life of strenuous endeavor.” Roosevelt practiced what he preached – leading hikes and hunting expeditions while serving as the nation’s youngest President. As Commander-in-Chief, Roosevelt required that all military officers be able to cover 50 miles on foot in 20 hours to maintain their commissions.

Inspired by Roosevelt, President John F. Kennedy issued the same challenge to his military officers. Officers, non-commissioned officers and civilians responded to the challenge and participated in 50-mile events around the country. After Kennedy’s assassination, one of those events became the “JFK 50 Mile Memorial”. The race includes13 miles on the Appalachian Trail, 26 miles along the Ohio Chesapeake & Ohio Canal towpath, and over 8 miles along roads through farmland.

Southborough resident and former Army officer, Mark Fallon ran the 47th Annual JFK 50-Miler on November 21, 2009. Fallon completed the race in 9 hours, 37 minutes and 30 seconds, placing 311th out of 1030 finishers, and 87th out of 298 men in his age group.

You may see Mark running on the streets of Southborough this winter as he prepares for the 114th Boston Marathon on April 19, 2010.

When not running long distance races, Mark runs The Berkshire Company (www.berkshire-company.com), a consulting firm.

The Kids’ Shop allows area children to do their holiday shopping for their parents, siblings, grandparents and pets in a safe environment with prices that reflect their limited budgets. The children are personally escorted though the shop by members of the Troop while parents or other relatives wait outside the shopping area in a café-like setting where they may purchase coffee, breakfast or lunch.
