Fall Brings Colors

September 24, 2010 - Some trees have begun to show their fall colors as others struggle to survive from the lack of rainfall.  A lot of the colors you will see in the swamps are changing early and are not so brilliant from the lack of water.  For more information on potential foliage routes click here.

Rep Dykema Welcomes

First Ever National Prescription Drug Take-Back

Boston— Representative Carolyn Dykema is pleased to announce that on Saturday September 25th from 10 am until 2pm the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is hosting its first ever national prescription drug take-back to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets.   The collaboration with state and local law enforcement agencies in Massachusetts has established more than 100 collection locations across the Commonwealth including the Holliston, Hopkinton and Westborough Police Stations within the 8th Middlesex District. 

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Abuse of prescription drugs is on the rise and studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends.  This take back is an opportunity to take medicines out of Massachusetts’ medicine cabinets and off the streets.  Many Americans, recognizing the potential for abuse discard their unused medicines, but flushing down the toilet or throwing out the trash are potential environmental hazards.

"This program addresses a vital need in keeping dangerous medicines out of the hands of kids and minimizing toxics getting into our water supply.” Dykema said.  “Unused prescriptions flushed down the toilet could end up back in our drinking water, and this program gives consumers a convenient and safe alternative."

The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. To find the collection site nearest your community visit www.dea.gov.

State Representative Carolyn Dykema serves on the Joint Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture.  She represents the towns of Holliston, Hopkinton, Medway (pct. 1), Southborough (pct. 2 & 3) and Westborough (pct. 2).

Space Weather News for Sept. 22, 2010

GLOBAL ERUPTION ON THE SUN: This morning between 0230 UT and 0600 UT, the northern hemisphere of the sun erupted in a tumult of activity.  There was a solar flare, a coronal mass ejection, and at least two dark magnetic filaments lifting off the stellar surface. The event appears to be a smaller-scale version of the global blast in early August that sparked auroras over some US states. As before, NASA spacecraft recorded the action in detail. Visit http://spaceweather.com for movies and updates.

: Last night, sky watchers in the southwestern United States witnessed a brilliant fireball. It was almost as bright as the full Harvest Moon and caused a loud sonic boom over parts of New Mexico.  A movie of the event is highlighted on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.

United States Senator Scott Brown Endorses

Lew Evangelidis   

WORCESTER - Worcester County Sheriff candidate Lew Evangelidis announced today that he has received the endorsement of United States Senator Scott Brown.  The endorsement was officially announced at an event for Evangelidis which Brown attended this past weekend.  (Pictures attached)


In his address to the overflowing crowd at Coral Seafood on Shrewsbury Street, Brown said, “It was my pleasure to serve with Lew Evangelidis in the legislature where he earned his reputation as a reformer.  It was important for me to come out to Worcester to support Lew’s campaign because I know the challenges he will face going up against the political machine.” 


Brown continued, “I spent a great amount of time in Worcester County during my campaign for Senate and I know the voters will be receptive to a new kind of sheriff who is professional and independent."


Evangelidis said, “Senator Brown’s election to the United States Senate this past January sent a clear message that folks are ready for new leadership that is independent and not part of the old political machine.  I truly appreciate Senator Brown’s endorsement and his support throughout the remainder of our campaign.”

Services : Outreach: Cynthia Henderson Beard    

Hours: M, T, W 7:30 – 3:30, Th 7:30-1:30

Outreach is a service provided to seniors and their adult children. Many seniors living in the community want nothing more than to live out their years in their own homes. In order to do so, some people may need additional supports or equipment, technology or services that will enable them to do so safely. Following an assessment or interview, Outreach services can connect you with the supports and services that may help you live independently as well as safely in your own home.

These supports may include, but are not limited to;

  • Home Healthcare
  • Homemaking services
  • Medication Management
  • Personal Emergency systems
  • Adult Day Health
  • Caregiver support groups
  • Transportation
  • Equipment Vendors
  • Veterans Agent
  • SHINE counseling
  • Aging Service Access Point
  • Elder Law Attorneys
  • Geriatric Care Managers
  • Mediation

Outreach can also give you information and refer you to programs that are designed to help make things a little easier in these difficult times, such as;

  • Fuel Assistance
  • Prescription Advantage
  • Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program and the local Food Pantry.

Many people find that their lives would be simplified by relocating to a Senior Community or an Assisted Living facility. Others may require skilled care and will need to move to a Nursing Home. There are many things to consider and it can be helpful to have someone to review the points of consideration or even have someone gather the information for you. Outreach can do this at a time when you may have other things on your mind.
