                           St. Mark’s To Install New Holder of Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities

January 22, 2010 (Southborough, MA) This evening at St. Mark’s School, Rev. James LaMacchia will be installed as the new holder of the Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities.  Rev. LaMacchia is the second St. Mark’s faculty member to hold this distinguished endowed chair that was founded by the family and friends of Martin Fenton Sr. in the spring of 1999 to celebrate Martin’s life and recognize his belief in the importance of a strong humanities education.

Martin Fenton Sr. graduated from St. Mark’s School in 1925.  He was a founding partner of Laird & Company, an investment banking and brokerage firm.  Martin Fenton Sr. passed away in 1982.  His son, Wendell Fenton of Wilmington, DE, will be speaking on behalf of the Fenton family at the installation.

The income from the Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities is used to support a faculty member in one of several departments who exemplifies a strong commitment to academic excellence within this broad area of study.  Whether in literature, religion, history, or the classics; the existence of the Fenton Chair helps attract and retain the finest teachers, who are the critical link in St. Mark’s ability to fulfill its mission of educating young people for lives of leadership and service.

The Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities was first awarded in June 1999 to Gilbert O. Stanley, a passionate history teacher who later served as Chair of the History Department.  Mr. Stanley, who joined the St. Mark’s community in 1978, touched the lives of countless students and held the Fenton Chair until his retirement in 2009.

Rev. LaMacchia, the new holder of the Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities, joined the St. Mark’s faculty in 1998 and now serves as Associate Chaplain and teacher of religious studies.  He has traveled extensively in Palestine/Israel on many occasions, and is deeply engaged in the effort to find a peaceful settlement to the continuing crisis there.  Rev. LaMacchia is also an accomplished writer with many published articles in the area of Christian ethics and a book entitled The Riches of the Word of God: Homilies of an American Priest.

“I have dedicated my life, my skill, and my passion to this profession and I am so grateful to the Fenton Family for endowing the Martin Fenton Sr. Chair in Humanities to support the work of St. Mark’s teachers like me,” commented Rev. James LaMacchia.

The installation will take place at Class of ’45 Hall and will be attended by all St. Mark’s faculty and students, Trustees, members of the Fenton Family, friends and family of Rev. LaMacchia, and other friends of the School.  A celebratory dinner will follow the installation event in Taft Hall.

Attorney General Martha Coakley Encourages Consumers to Redeem Ski Market Gift Cards by January 24

BOSTON – Ski Market Ltd., (Ski Market) will honor 50 percent of the face value of any unused gift cards under an agreement negotiated by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley’s Office, and the Offices of Attorney Generals for Connecticut and Rhode Island. The company initially refused to redeem any gift cards after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on December 29, 2009. Under the agreement, which must still be approved by the bankruptcy court, consumers holding Ski Market gift cards can use them for up to 50 percent of the card’s face value at any Ski Market store, for the period from Saturday, January 16, 2010, through Sunday, January 24, 2010. The Attorney General’s Office cautions consumers that they must use the gift cards during a single visit and that because the store has filed for bankruptcy, merchandise cannot be returned.

Ski Market’s Massachusetts stores are located in Boston, Wellesley, Woburn, Framingham, and Pembroke.

The Attorney General’s Office advises consumers that used a credit card to purchase gift cards to contact their credit card company to inquire whether any unredeemed portion may be credited to the credit card. If it cannot, consumers may file a Proof of Claim in the bankruptcy court for the unredeemed sum. The validity of a claim and the amount of any dividend will be determined by the Bankruptcy Court.

Consumers who have questions about this agreement or who need assistance with the Proof of Claim Process should contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Hotline at 617-727-8400.

Lady Aztecs Host Spirit Event with Free Admission

“Let’s rock the house, with everyone in white or grey t-shirts,” exclaims Frank Ferreer, the head coach of the Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School Lady Aztecs basketball team. On January 22nd, anyone wearing a white or grey t-shirt will be given free admission to watch the girls take on Worcester Tech. The game is at 6:30 PM in the Assabet gymnasium at 215 Fitchburg Street in Marlborough. Ferreer is optimistic about his team this year, coming off of a 21-3 season in 2009, and making it to the second round of District play-offs. “We have solid returning talent, particularly in Chelsea Joubert, her sister Vanessa Joubert (both girls are from Westborough), Nicole Soto from Marlborough, and Ashley Salem from Clinton, and we also have some very athletic freshmen on the team, so we’re anticipating a strong showing,” says Ferreer. He would like to see a sea of white and grey shirts in the stands as support for the team. “We are planning another such event in February if this goes well. We’ll even be selling t-shirts! I’d like to see a lot of the local 8th grade students who are planning to apply to Assabet come out and feel the spirit, too,” adds Ferreer.”It’s a good way to be introduced to our athletic programs.”

Quarterly print publication targeting MetroWest

businesses set for springtime debut

January 18, 2009: The publishers of the Worcester Business Journal are excited to announce the launch of the quarterly print publication of MetroWest495 Biz to serve the vibrant business community in the growing I-495 corridor.  The publication will hit newsstands and mail rooms in March. It will capitalize on the readership developing around the MetroWest495 Biz email newsletter, which debuted in 2009, and is currently delivered to the inboxes of several thousand regional executives on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

“We really see this as a natural next step for our brand,” said Peter Stanton, publisher of MetroWest495 Biz and the Worcester Business Journal. “At the WBJ, we already cover the MetroWest area, but the importance of the region really demands its own publication. In combination with our existing e-mail, our new print publication will further connect businesspeople to local market intelligence they can put to use.” The quarterly publication will include stories about the people and companies that make the MetroWest/495 region hum. It will also include regular features such as a guide to the top networking events, key demographics on the communities within the region and an analysis of regional and statewide news.

“We’ve designed MetroWest495 Biz as a colorful and dynamic magazine-style publication. We’ll deliver fun, informative, engaging features, and colorful, high-quality photographs and artwork with each and every issue,” said Matthew L. Brown, project editor for the quarterly publication. “The first Page 2 issue will feature ‘10 To Watch,’ which will profile ten of the movers and shakers making an impact on the MetroWest/495 scene.” The publication will be direct mailed to company presidents, CEOs and senior managers at firms located within our coverage area, which extends from Shrewsbury in the west to Natick in the east, Wrentham in the south and Westford/Chelmsford in the north.

Winter storm warning in effect until 10 am est. Monday.
The NWS in taunton has issued a winter storm warning for snow, which is in effect until 10 am est. Monday. The winter storm watch is no longer in effect.
The winter storm warning area includes locations along the mass turnpike from the western suburbs of Boston to the Berkshires and northward into southern New Hampshire. The warning does not include the greater Boston or Springfield areas.
Rain, sleet, and snow will overspread the warning area this evening. After coming down hard for a few hours, it may lighten up and mix with freezing rain for a time in some areas. Then, between midnight and 6 am, a period of heavy snow is expected to develop. The snow will taper to flurries and end by late Monday morning.
Total storm accumulations of 5 to 9 inches are forecast in the warning area. However these amounts could change depending on the amount of sleet or freezing rain that mixes in. The highest accumulations should be across the higher terrain, especially the Worcester hills and east slopes of the Berkshires, extending into northeast Massachusetts and Hillsborough county New Hampshire.
If more than 5 inches of snow at temperatures of 32 degrees accumulates on trees and wires, power outages could develop after midnight.
The cause of the wintry weather is low pressure located across Virginia and North Carolina late this afternoon. It is forecast to intensify into a strong gale as it passes just south of Nantucket Monday morning.
Precautionary/preparedness actions,
A winter storm warning is issued when an average of 6 or more inches of snow is expected in a 12 hour period, or for 8 or more inches in a 24 hour period. Travel will be slow at best on well treated surfaces, and quite difficult on any unplowed or untreated surfaces.


Snow Buildup & Subsequent Heavy Rain Can Present Dangers

FRAMINGHAM, MA – “If not cleared off, dry, fluffy snow piled on roofs can act as a sponge, absorbing any additional sleet and rain, adding weight and stress to structures.” states Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) Director Don Boyce.  “Flat, commercial roofs are most susceptible if they are not draining properly.  Additionally, MEMA encourages citizens to clear storm drains in their neighborhoods to minimize local flooding problems from this run-off.”


In many cases, roof ice dams can form causing water build-up, leading to interior damage. To minimize the risk of over-stressing a building roof due to accumulated or drifting snow:


·         Be on the alert for large accumulating snow build-up or snowdrifts on your roofs.


·         If roof snow can be removed, from the ground, with the use of a snow rake (available at most hardware stores), do so. Use caution, as metal snow rakes conduct electricity if they come into contact with a power line.


·         Try to avoid working from ladders, as ladder rungs tend to ice up.  Snow and ice collect on boot soles, and metal ladders.


·         Flat roofs can be shoveled clear, but only if it is determined that the roof is safe to stand upon. Exercise care when on the roof to avoid potentially dangerous falls.


·         Flat roof drainage systems should be kept clear to minimize the risk of excess roof ponding in the event of subsequent heavy rainfall or melting.


·         Large icicles can form on roof overhangs, but do not necessarily mean ice damming is occurring. Icicles overhanging doorways and walkways can be dangerous and should be carefully removed.


·         All of the mentioned actions should only be performed by able-bodied adults, as the snow is heavy, and roofs and other surfaces may be slippery. Protective headgear and eye protection is recommended.


This roof collapse alert is issued by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), in conjunction with the State Board of Building Regulations and Standards.


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.

Ski Everest Movie Screening

1/28/2010 7:00 PM

Many consider the world?s toughest physical challenge to be climbing 8,000-meter peaks - in the notorious ?death zone? - without the aid of bottled oxygen. Yet it?s a challenge willingly undertaken by a small fraternity of ski mountaineers who tackle the highest peaks in this pure Alpine style. They then lock into their skis and descend the most dangerous slopes on Earth, navigating hidden crevasses, sheer 10,000-foot drops, and perilous weather. In this freshly edited, fast-paced profile of this elite group, filmmaker Mike Marolt, his brothers Steve and Roger, and their intrepid friends passionately push the limits of skiing to its highest frontier. Fourth generation Aspenites whose father was on the 1960 Olympic ski team, the Marolts take us for thrilling rides on various peaks in south America, as well as Himalayan giants, Shishapangma, Cho Oyu, and Everest.
