Space Weather News for June 16, 2010

HUBBLE SEEKS DEBRIS, FINDS NONE: Even the Hubble Space Telescope cannot find any debris where a meteoroid apparently hit Jupiter on June 3rd. Today, researchers released new HST images of the impact site, which show nothing but uninterrupted clouds. The non-detection is consistent with a relatively small asteroid or comet fragment making a shallow strike in Jupiter's high atmosphere. Links to photos and more information may be found at http://spaceweather.com

NOCTILUCENT CLOUDS:  Observers in Europe are reporting brightening displays of noctilucent clouds (NLCs).  That's to be expected.  Late spring and early summer often bring the strongest displays of these electric-blue clouds wafting across the top of Earth's atmosphere.  Visit today's edition of http://spaceweather.com for photos, observing tips--and a possible connection between NLCs and sunspots.

Summer Solstice Ride

Saturday - June 19

http://www.crw.org/images/rides/wachusette-view.jpg

Charles River Wheelers

Ride Type: Cue Sheet
Times and Routes: 5:08 AM for 125
Leaders: Charles Huizenga (781-266-7658)
Description: June 19 is near the Summer Solstice (June 21 this year), when the sun reaches its northernmost extremes, and the time between sunrise and sunset is at maximum. What could be more fitting than a 125-mile sunrise to sunset ride to take advantage of all that daylight. The ride start is at sunrise @ 5:08 AM near Emerson Hospital in Concord. The ride takes advantage of fine roads in the W's (Wayland, Weston, Wellesley), Dover, Holliston, Mendon, and Uxbridge to Purgatory Chasm, and then onwards to Grafton, Sterling and Mt. Wachusett. The return is on traditional terrain to Concord. At Sterling town center, riders can opt out of the 22 mile loop to Mt Wachusett by turning towards Concord. The ride is unsupported, but there is a lengthy cue sheet listing food stops where riders may congregate. You must maintain an overall 12 mph pace to complete this ride safely at Sunset: 8:25 PM. .
Notes: Heavy rain cancels.
Start: Emerson Hospital(Overflow Lot), 59 ORNAC, Concord (map)
Directions: From Boston and Route 128: Follow Route 2 West to Concord. Route 2 takes a sharp turn to the left at the intersection of Route 2A (at the bottom of the hill). Stay on Route 2 past two more intersections, Walden Pond/Route 126 and Sudbury Road. Make your next right (Emerson Hospital is on the left). Immediately off Rt. 2, make the first right into the overflow parking at 59 ORNAC, the Concord Health Center medical office building parking lot.

Nokona USA Baseball wins 10u New England AAU Championship!

Championship Southboro team members include: L-R Ryan Courtwright, Zach Zides, Alex Pappas, Kyle Henderson, Drew Courtwright  (contributed photo)

June 16, 2010 -  Nokona USA Baseball’s 10u Team won the New England AAU Championship that took place June 10th through June 13th  in Lawrence, MA.

 The top 16 teams from 4 states qualified to take part in the NEAAU Championship tournament. Nokona qualified by going 27-4 overall and 10-0 in divisional play during the regular season. The Nokona 10u team went 6-0 during the tournament to capture the Championship and finish with a phenomenal 33-4 overall record.  The Southboro boys were an integral part of the team this year. 

Over the weekend, Ryan and Drew Courtwright contributed with strong defense and key hitting each game.  Kyle Henderson pitched and won the first game of the weekend and played solid defense throughout.  Alex Pappas was one of the team’s hottest hitters with a .600 + batting average, while playing strong defense too.  Zach Zides set the table for the team all weekend as the leadoff batter with a .700 + on base percentage.  Zach also pitched very well all weekend, and started the championship game to get the win.

Nokona USA Baseball plays in Ashland, MA and has won 3 New England Championships in their first 6 seasons.

The Championship Team was skillfully coached by Jim Venuto and assistant coaches Jeff Paulson and John Pappas.

Congratulations to all team members on a great 2010 season!  For more info & team stats, check out:  http://www.neaau.org/BaseballStatistics.aspx?aid=11

STATEMENT OF KARYN POLITO ON GOVERNOR PATRICK'S PLAN FOR SPENDING CUTS
"The U.S. Senate is considering legislation that will provide additional federal financial aid to state governments.

Until the Senate acts, this potential relief is merely speculative. As a contingency, Governor Patrick has proposed a three and one-half percent cut to this year's state budget, exempting local aid and debt service payments. My advice to the Governor is to go ahead and make the budget cut whether or not additional federal funding is forthcoming. I make this recommendation because next year's budget is going to be the worst we've seen in recent memory, with an opening deficit of more than $2 billion. It will make our current budget difficulties seem like a walk in the park. Making cuts now will prepare us for the necessary and hard decisions that are sure to follow."

MWRA Mails Annual Water Quality Report

Annual Water Quality Reports Archive

Monthly Water Quality Test Results

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has begun mailing its Annual Water Quality Report to every household in its service area. The report is required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and updates consumers on last year’s water quality test results.

MWRA has great confidence in the water delivered to your home and wants its customers to have the same confidence. MWRA and the local water departments test thousands of samples each week. The results for 2009 were excellent: for the 120 contaminants tested for, every standard was met.

“Over the last 25 years, MWRA has made major improvements to the water system that will ensure the delivery of great water to your tap for decades to come,” said MWRA executive director Fred Laskey.

“The major water main break in May really emphasized the importance of this work – and the work that is still left to do.”

In the latest round of testing, the MWRA system was again below the Lead Action Level with the lowest levels ever. And tests have also shown that there are no traces of pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplied by MWRA.

MWRA distributes the report to over 800,000 homes in 41 cities and towns. Community-specific inserts also provide information about municipal water systems. The reports are being mailed between now and the end of June. Look for it in your mailbox.

The report is also available on-line at http://www.mwra.com/water/html/awqr.htm. A large print version is available upon request and a Spanish version will also be available soon.

The Marlboro Senior Softball teams were in action this week splitting their 4 games.  The Sr. Panthers split their doubleheader with the Milford Woodies taking the 1st game 9 – 6 and dropping the 2nd 3 – 2.  This was a first for the Marlboro team going back to the days of the wooden bats as the Milford Woodies are a wooden bat team.  Marlboro’s offense was led by Stephen Goldstein 4 for 5 and Paul Starek 3 for 5 with both players hitting triples.  Mgr Scerra says that everyone enjoyed playing with wooden bats for a change.  The Sr Panthers have 3 more games with the Woodies and we are all looking forward to them.

The Jr Panthers traveled to Tewksbury and split a doubleheader losing the 1st game 16 – 10 and winning the 2nd 8 – 5.  Marlboro’s offense was led by John Gavin, Paul Avakian and Bob Maquire all going 4 for 5.

Team Records are the Sr. Panthers 2 and 7 with 1 Tie and the Jr. Panthers are 3 and 5.
