MEREDITH - Kenneth Favor Clarke Jr., a longtime resident of Southborough, Mass., and Meredith, died Wednesday, July 28, 2010, in California, where he had lived for the past 10 years.

He was born May 18, 1927, in Lexington, Mass., to Kenneth Favor Clarke Sr. and Kathryn Chase (Collieson) Clarke. He served in the Navy from 1944 to 1946, attended radar electrical school and returned to his beloved New Hampshire after an honorable discharge.

A graduate of Kimball Union Academy in 1948, Ken was a member of the Ski Patrol (student leader), Outing Club, French Club (president), and the Senior Council, Class Secretary. During his senior year, he was voted: "Done Most for the School." As he would say, "the best years of my life."

He was surrounded by many friends as a vibrant, popular young man. He then attended Dartmouth College and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science in 1952. He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and the Dartmouth Outing Club. His most remembered stories are around skiing Tuckerman Ravine and the friendship with his SAE brothers.

As a resident of Southborough, Mass., and Meredith, he was the owner of Welder's Supply of Worcester, Mass., and Northeast Safety Products, Auburn, Mass. He served on local welding society boards. He was also an active member and Deacon of Pilgrim Congregational Church, Southborough. Mass.

He was an avid boater on Lake Winnipesaukee and began racing Garwood boats in 1948 with his Dad, Kenneth Clarke Sr. Wildcat IV was a 28-foot mahogany boat with a Liberty 12-cylinder, 550 horsepower and drove at the speed of 52 mph. His love of this sport carried on for 50 years. His first family boat in the 1960s was a wooden Pen Yan with a 25-horsepower Johnson outboard named the Honey Bees. He knew every square inch, every buoy and every island on "The Lake." His many friends still vacation and own homes in the Lakes Region.

Ken sold his business in early 1980 and moved full-time to New Hampshire. He worked as a part- time teacher in the Gilford School System until full retirement.

As a member of Meredith Lions Club from 1987 to 2000, he served as second vice-president for the 1987-88 year. He then served as the club's president for 1988-1990. He was awarded the Melvin Jones Fellow in 1996. His favorite activity and fundraiser was the annual July 4th Rubber Duckie Race. Thanks to his mentor and good friend Dick Fleming.

In 2000, Ken, moved to California to be near his daughters and grandson. In his last years, he was lovingly cared for at Britannia Lodge by Pat, Richard and Joanne Hounsell of Palm Desert, Calif. They are angels to our family.

Ken leaves two daughters, Wendy Clarke of La Quinta, Calif., and Julie Clarke of Palm Desert, Calif.; a grandson, Kenneth Clarke Lewis of Palm Desert, Calif.; cousins Rosemary Jackson Woodman and husband Arthur of Londonderry, Jonathan Tetherly and wife Kay, of Chicopee, Mass., and David "Babe" Jackson and wife Patty of Florida.

Ken's service and burial will be on Saturday, Aug. 7, at 11 a.m. at Monroe Cemetery, Rowland Avenue at Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington Mass., (behind the former Muzzey High/Condos), where Ken will be laid to rest with his parents, and grandparents.

St. Mark's Students were Selected for Elite  Chemistry Competition

 

July 29, 2010 (Southborough, MA) For the second year in a row, and for only the third time in the Chemistry Olympiad’s history, two students from the same school have been selected to compete among the nation's 20 best students of Chemistry. Geoff and Alex Smith, both class of 2011 at St. Mark’s School, were among the top 20 students in the nation selected to attend a two week study camp in June at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. From this elite group of 20 chemists, five were chosen to represent the US in the international competition later this summer in Tokyo. While the Smith brothers were not chosen to advance to the competition in Tokyo, Head of School John Warren expressed pleasure at the fact that his students have been chosen for two years in a row to compete at this elite level.

St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA is a co-educational, college preparatory boarding school affiliated with the Episcopal Church. The School was founded in 1865 and currently enrolls 335 boarding and day students from 21 states and 14 countries. For more information, go to www.stmarksschool.org

July 29, 2010 - by Linda Hubley - Last night the crowd flowed out into the hallway as supporters and those in opposition to the three businesses at Gulbankian Farms and Garden Center came on a hot summer night to discuss the issues.

A complaint was filed by a resident earlier in the year with the town, claiming that the businesses were being run without proper permits.  Most of this came to light after the Gulbankian family had signed a lease with North Reading bus company to host the parking of fourteen buses. In prior years up to 38 busses had been housed on the property.   An machine shop housed on site has also stirred controversy. A variance was issued for the machine shop in 1988 and they are seeking a modification to that variance to reflect working on antique car engines.  As the Gulbankian lawyers stated, the family had nothing to hide.  The shops are all in full view of commuters along Route 85 and the sign for the machine shop and the flower shop have been in existence at the corner of the lot for many many years.

The Gulbankian’s started their businesses on the site starting in 1965.  Mike Gulbankian had bus companies that served the local schools and a Southborough to Boston run along with other contracted services.  The machine shop was originally for the buses according to documents from the 80’s.  However the Gulbankian brothers have been working on antique auto parts for decades.  The florist shop and garden center have been a welcome sign of spring for even longer.

Building inspector had toured the facility and found the machine shop operating without proper permits and considered the flower shop illegally operating.  Shortly thereafter a cease and desist was issued in June.  Lawyers for the Gulbankian family took this to the District Court and won a decision that dismissed the cease and desist and accompanying fine per day.  The lawyers also stressed that the agricultural business was exempt from what Mr. Gusmini was referring to. 

The Gulbankian lawyers also specified that they have delivered the plans correctly under the Zoning Board of Appeals regulations and that it did not trigger a major review.  Town counsel Aldo Cipriano agreed that the ZBA was bound by not requiring an extensive plan but that it could require a plan showing conditions such as screening and drainage and that they could invoke several other conditions such as hours of operation and entrance/exit ways.

The ZBA opened the hearing to the public only for procedural matters on the discussion.  People on both sides of the issue pleaded to the ZBA to be heard.  Just a few that had made it to the meeting last night were able to speak their peace.  Several letters were entered into the record and those and the plans will be available for viewing at the Building department.

When it came time to the cease and desist hearing a huge disappointment to the crowd came when it was announced that the procedure of publishing the notice twice before the meeting had not taken place.  It had only been published once.  This hearing will be rescheduled for August 16.  The continuation of the variance is scheduled for August 25.  A decision must be filed by the board before September 22, 2010.

Dryer Fire

Southborough’s 9-1-1 center received a telephone call from a Richards Road resident at 2:15 PM on Saturday, July 24th reporting a smoke condition in the basement possibly caused by an electrical issue.

Engine 22 with two on-duty personnel immediately responded; Engine 23 was delayed as the other two on-duty personnel were returning from Framingham Hospital from a previous medical emergency.

Engine 22’s crew reported a smoke condition in the basement of the home. Off-duty and On-Call personnel were recalled with three responding to the request. Additional assistance was started to the scene from Ashland (Tower) and Hopkinton (Rescue for a rapid-intervention team), as well as station coverage from Westborough Fire Department.

Once sufficient personnel arrived to meet safety requirements, a search was started to find the origin of the smoke. A fire was discovered in a clothes dryer and the ventilation duct. The situation was declared under control at 2:38 PM. No injuries were reported. The fire was contained to the clothes dryer and ventilation duct, however smoke from the fire spread throughout the entire structure.

Hopkinton Fire

July 26, 2010 -

A lone occupant escaped a house fire early Saturday morning on Priscilla Road after being awaked by battery-powered smoke alarms. According to Lt. William Lukey, the fire started in the electrical service in the basement, knocking out power to the home. Hopkinton has required the installation of hard-wired smoke detectors in all new construction, upgrades, property transfers and refinancing, since a Town Meeting vote in 1988, according to the lieutenant. Lt. Lukey said it has worked out well; but he was unsure if this 1950's era ranch home had both battery-powered and hard-wired detectors.

      According to Fire Chief ken Clark, all new or upgraded construction requires hard-wired detectors as well as a battery backup.

      "Fortunately, no one was hurt. Unfortunately, he lost a couple of cats," Lt. Lukey said.

Southborough Firefighters also responded to this call on Mutual Aid.  It coming shortly after the 4 alarm Westborough blaze at Harvey's recycling center.  It was a busy weekend for local fire departments.

RAPPAPORT ENDORSES LAMB

 

Former Republican State Party Chairman Says Lamb Best Chance to Defeat Congressman McGovernment

 

Holliston, MA ...Today, Marty Lamb, Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts Third District, proudly announced that former Republican State Party Chairman Jim Rappaport has endorsed his candidacy.

 

"We need more business leaders serving in Congress.  That's why I am supporting Marty Lamb.  He is the only candidate, Republican or Democrat, running who has signed the front of a paycheck and created jobs.  Marty knows first-hand the burdens the federal government places on small businesses and how mandates are job killers," said Rappaport.

 

For over two decades Rappaport has been active in GOP politics.  He served at the Republican Party Chairman for 4 1/2 years.  Rappaport has run statewide twice and served on numerous steering committees.  He is also on the Board of Trustees for Dana Faber and the Board of Trustees for the Rappaport Family Foundation.

 

"I am honored to have Jim's support.  Once again we are showing great momentum in this race," said Lamb.

 

Lamb's campaign has a tremendous lead with friends on Facebook and last week he won an online poll for Massachusetts Republicans.

 

"Marty has also earned my support due to the comprehensive plans he has developed for dealing with illegal immigration and cutting government spending.  He is the only candidate who has done his due diligence," added Rappaport.

 

The Lamb Chop Plan on spending includes the following:

  1. Instituting a balanced budget amendment
  2. Passing a Line Item Veto
  3. Limiting government spending to rate of inflation (TABOR)
  4. Hiring freeze for all non-essential employees
  5. Paying off the national debt
  6. Moratorium on new entitlements
  7. Establishing a Sunset Committee
  8. Ending off-budget expenditures
  9. Prohibiting bailouts
  10. Taking back unspent TARP funds

 

"As a small business owner, I never sign a contract before knowing what is in it.  But yet Congress passed the national health care mandate without fully understand its costs or impact on our economy.  That's wrong," said Lamb.  "At a minimum taxpayer will have to fund $1 trillion to pay for Obamacare.  Where is the money gong to come from?  Taxpayers?  China?"

 

Mr. Lamb graduated from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in 1985 and received his Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College in 1982. He has an extensive background in real estate law, formerly with Adelson, Golden & Loria, P.C., Edward A. Sokoloff & Associates, and Lamb & Shaffer, P.C. and is currently with Lamb and Browne, P.C. He is a member of the Real Estate Bar Association of Massachusetts. An active participant in community affairs, Mr. Lamb sits on the Board of Directors of New England Region of United Synagogue and is a past president of Temple Beth Torah in Holliston. He has also served on the Holliston Elementary School Council and the Campaign for Holliston Schools. He resides in Holliston with Peri, his wife of 20 years, and his two teenage daughters Elissa and Simma.

 

For more information on Marty's candidacy, voters can visit his website www.MartyforCongress.com or follow him on Twitter at LambforCongress and Facebook at Marty Lamb for Congress.

Combine your crown visit into just one visit with CEREC at New England Dental in a comfortable room, television included!

CEREC: A Beautiful Crown in Just One Visit!

In an ideal world, everyone would boast a perfect, lifelong set of healthy teeth. Unfortunately, disease, accidents, and other factors can make this an impossibility.

Often, a crown is the perfect solution.

A crown covers a tooth, restoring its shape and size, as well as strengthening and improving the appearance of a tooth. While the benefits of a crown are numerous, the downside is that they can necessitate multiple dental visits and considerable expense.

Until now!

Thanks to an amazing technique employed by New England Dental Group, near-perfect tooth restoration is not only possible — it can be done in just one visit! It’s called “CEREC.”

What is “CEREC?”

“CEREC” stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

Chairside means our dentists can provide your treatment in just one visit. While you sit comfortably, an image of your tooth is scanned into a computer, specially designed for this purpose. Using advanced digital technology, your crown is designed to your tooth’s precise specifications.

Economical means just that! CEREC crowns are your most affordable way to an amazing smile.

Restoration means making your tooth the way it was before. We’re not talking about “false” or “faux” here — crowning your tooth brings it back to nearly its original state.

Esthetic means…simply beautiful!

Ceramics refers to the material used in the CEREC system. Not only are ceramics more attractive than other materials (such as metal); they are also extremely strong, making them the material of choice for attractive, long-lasting results.

How does the procedure work?

As indicated, you simply sit as comfortably as possible. Using advanced CAD-CAM technology, an image of your existing tooth is scanned into a computer created especially for this purpose.

Using the data contained in this image, your crown is designed on the screen.

While you relax, diamond coated instruments are used to mill a ceramic block, perfectly reproducing the computer-generated design.

The crown is polished and placed over your existing tooth. Since the design is reproduced exactly to specifications, a perfect fit is insured.

A unique light is used to harden the bonding material, uniting your crown with your tooth.

Finally, your new and greatly improved tooth is expertly polished, resulting in a smooth and natural look and feel.

That’s it! No messy impressions, no temporary crowns, no multiple appointments. In fact, the whole procedure will probably take no more than an hour.

Thanks to our mastery of the CEREC approach, many New England Dental group patients have saved a significant amount time and money while gaining a long-lasting, beautiful smile. Find out if you can achieve the same results. Contact our office today.
