YOUTH ARTISTS WANTED FOR 2011 JUNIOR DUCK STAMP PROGRAM AND CONTEST--Registration information is now available for the 2011 Junior Duck Stamp (JDS) Program. Connecting children with nature through science and art, this dynamic conservation and design program is designed to teach wetland habitat and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. Using scientific and wildlife observation principles, the program helps students communicate visually what they have learned by creating an entry for the Junior Duck Stamp Program art contest. This non-traditional pairing of subjects brings new interest to both science and the arts and teaches greater awareness of our natural resources. The art is judged in four age group categories in a statewide competition, and the entry judged Best of Show moves on to represent Massachusetts in the national JDS competition. Artwork submissions must be postmarked by March 15, 2011. For official entry information visit www.fws.gov/juniorduck. In Massachusetts the Junior Duck Stamp Program is sponsored by MassWildlife, Massachusetts Wildlife Federation,  and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. For questions about JDS, or to receive publicity flyers or posters contact Education Coordinator Pam Landry at (508) 389-6310 or Pam.Landry@state.ma.us.

Local Relay For Life Seeks Volunteers


The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Northborough-Southborough seeks volunteers from the community- walkers, cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders, anyone wanting to make a difference - to organize and recruit teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, seek refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2011 event.

The first volunteer open house meeting takes place November 15 at 6:30p.m at the Algonquin High School Cafeteria. The open house will begin the planning process and provide information for the Relay For Life of  Northborough-Southborough which supports the American Cancer Society's mission of saving lives by helping people stay well and get well, and by finding cures and fighting back against the disease. The public is invited to stop by anytime during the open house to get more information about the event and the ways to get involved.

Relay For Life brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups, people from all walks of life - all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost and fighting back against the disease.

"Relay For Life is all about our community uniting with the American Cancer Society, and supporting its efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays," said Katie Hafner American Cancer Society staff partner. "Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let people know that cancer can be defeated."

The Spring 2011 event takes place overnight as individuals and teams camp out at with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout the event, signifying that cancer never sleeps. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during the relay.

Rep. Dykema Brings Veterans Healthcare Hearing to Holliston

Boston— Representative Carolyn Dykema is pleased to announce her appointment to the Sub-committee on Veterans Access to Healthcare and to announce that the sub-committee will be holding their upcoming hearing in Holliston.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010, 10am
Holliston Town Hall
703 Washington Street, Holliston MA 01746

The hearing is one of four scheduled across the state from the Cape to Western Massachusetts.  The focus of the hearings is on improving access to healthcare for veterans who live a considerable distance from a Veteran’s Administration (VA) hospital. It will be an opportunity to hear from veterans, local hospitals, elected officials and others interested in improving healthcare access for  veterans.  

“Accessing healthcare through the VA system is particularly challenging for veterans who live a distance from a VA facility. These hearings are an opportunity for my colleagues and me to hear directly from local veterans so we can identify opportunities to improve access,” said Dykema. “I’m thrilled that our sub-committee will be coming to Holliston, and I’m hopeful that we’ll hear from veterans of all generations so that we get a complete picture of the needs.”

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Night Road: Photographs of Diners
by John D. Woolf
Opens November 6, 2010

Drawn to diners and other twentieth-century roadside architecture, photographer John Woolf embarked on a project of capturing images of these buildings—especially those in the Northeast industrial corridor from New Jersey to Maine. Twenty of these compelling photographs can be seen in the exhibition "Night Road."

Most of these structures combine signage—both lettered and neon-designed—to attract the attention of nocturnal travelers. As Woolf describes, "At night, with a mixture of the road's various artificial light sources, interior lights shining through highly visible windows, and eye-catching, garish neon signs, these buildings and their surroundings suggest a film-noir movie set photographed in Technicolor."

Using a digital camera and making multiple exposures for each light source and then combining them together in software, Woolf has tried to recreate the lurid color and dramatic lighting of these roadside structures. Digital photography enables this process, which would not be possible with a traditional film camera.

The popular architectural treasures highlighted in the photos date from an era when commercial buildings were more playful and symbolic than they are today. In the mid-1900s, builders constructed even common structures with a high level of craftsmanship and imagination. Some of these relics remain, and Woolf has captured them before they fade away.

FARSIDE SOLAR FLARES: An active region just over the sun's eastern horizon is crackling with solar flares and hurling material high above the stellar surface.  One of today's flares, a C4-class event, created a wave of ionization in Earth's upper atmosphere despite the fact that the blast site was not directly visible from Earth.  The source of this activity appears to be old sunspot 1112, which has spent the last ~12 days transiting the far side of the sun, and is now about to turn back toward our planet.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for movies of today's activity and updates.

COMET HARTLEY UPDATE:  NASA's Deep Impact (EPOXI) probe is closing in on Comet Hartley 2 for a daring flyby on Nov. 4th.  The small but active comet is full of surprises, with spinning jets, geysers of cyanide gas, and a strangely pickle-shaped core.  Mission scientists expect to reveal first images from the flyby during a press conference on Thursday afternoon, around 4 pm EDT. Tune into NASA TV to follow events live, and meanwhile read this story for a preview:

Dear Friends

 A couple "day after" requests.

Lawn signs have been planted throughout the district. Please make an effort to harvest signs you see in or on any public property. As a campaign we want to save the cities and towns the expense of clean up. Although I will be stepping forward again in the political arena, I have not yet decided if it will be a Congressional run. That said, please feel free to hold onto any signs you may have.

I appreciated all the financial support that all of you have given the campaign. Bills are still coming in for our final weeks of campaigning. Contributions are still needed and appreciated in order to wrap up this campaign and start moving forward on the next battle. Please help me keep fighting by CLICKING HERE to contribute.

Thank you again.

AVOID INVASIVE PLANTS FOR HOLIDAY DECORATING

American Bittersweet,Celastrus scandens,flowers,nature,plantsAs part of the upcoming holiday season, many people are using plant material to decorate their houses or businesses. The Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) and the Department of Agricultural Resources (DAR) highly recommends that people avoid using certain exotic, invasive plants such as Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) and Multiflora rose (Rosa multiflora) in holiday decorations. Though these plants are attractive, it is best to refrain from using them. Birds eat and carry away the fruits from wreaths and garlands and the digested but still-viable seeds sprout where deposited. Exotic, invasive plants create severe environmental damage, invading open fields, forests, wetlands, meadows, and backyards, and crowding out native plants. Bittersweet can even kill mature trees through strangling. Both plants are extremely difficult to control: when cut off, the remaining plant segment in the ground will re-sprout. It is illegal to import or sell bittersweet and multiflora rose in any form (plants or cuttings) in the state of Massachusetts.

Backyard gardeners, nursery staff, landscapers and conservationists can learn more about invasive plants from the DFW A Guide To Invasive Plants. In the Guide, each invasive plant description includes a photograph, the plant's regulatory status, key identification characteristics, habitats where the plant is likely to be found, type of threat the plant poses to native species and habitats, and its current distribution and place of origin. Similar plant species are also briefly described to aid in plant identification. The Guide includes definitions of three categories of invasiveness, brief explanations of how invasive plants are introduced and spread, why invasives are a problem, how to learn more about controlling invasive plants, and the state agricultural regulations regarding their importation, sale and propagation. Useful invasive plant websites are also referenced.

To purchase a guide from DFW, stop in the Westborough office during business hours or send a request to “Invasive Plant Guide,” MassWildlife Field HQ, NHESP, 1 Rabbit Hill Rd, Westborough, MA, 01581, and include a check for $5 (per copy) payable to: Comm. of Mass.--NHESP. Sorry, but credit cards are not accepted.  For more information visit the DFW web page at: www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/nhesp/conservation/invasives/invasive_species.htm, the DAR website of prohibited plants at: http://www.mass.gov/agr/farmproducts/Prohibited_Plant_Index2.htm  or visit the New England Wild Flower Society website at http://www.newfs.org/protect/invasive-plants.

"Fuel for Thought"
Greetings!  
November is upon us! With that comes the busy holiday season! We would like to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving and we would like to remind you that with the holidays comes a lot of travel and car trips. Make sure your car is ready to go and doesnt fail you during the hectic holiday season!

Tire Pressure and Cold Weather
When the weather changes from warm to cold it can affect many parts of your car, the tires being one of the most important. Tires need to have proper grip to the pavement so that you, as the driver, can control the vehicle. Temperatures that rapidly decrease can cause the air inside of your tires to change which can cause problems with your tire pressure which will then affect your tire performance and your safety.
 You should check your tire pressure more often in the winter months. The shorter days, thus less warming sunlight and colder temperature will give you tire pressure issues. For every 10 degrees Fahrenheit change in the outside temperature, the tires' air pressure will change by about 1 pound per square inch (psi). This falls with colder temperatures and rises with higher temperatures.
 
The different in temperature between summertime and wintertime is nearly fifty degrees Fahrenheit. As the outside temperature changes it results in a gain or loss of around 5 psi. If the tires are not properly taken care of and air pressure maintained the tires performance will plummet.

Sparkles Goes to Boston Children’s Book Wins Four Prestigious National Awards

 

Firehouse Dog Publishing Announces Sparkles Goes to Boston as a multi-award winner in the 7th Annual “Best Books” Awards by USA Book News

 

CLARKSVILLE, AR Sparkles Goes to Boston, a children’s fire safety book by Firefighter Dayna Hilton, has won four national awards in the 7th Annual “Best Book Awards presented by USA Book News.

 

The book has been selected as the Winner in the Children's Picture Book: Softcover Non-Fiction category and a Finalist in the Children’s Book Series, Children’s Non-Fiction category and Animals/Pets: General categories.

 

Winners and finalists traversed the publishing landscape: Simon & Schuster, Penguin/Putnam, Rodale, McGraw-Hill, John Wiley & Sons, Moody Publishers, American Cancer Society, Sourcebooks, and hundreds of independent houses contributed to this year’s competition.

 

Southborough Fire Department (MA) is the location of Author Dayna Hilton’s second in a series of children’s books, Sparkles Goes to Boston. The book, which chronicles Sparkles’ big trip to visit Firefighter Jim at the fire station, includes age appropriate fire safety tips which are based on Oklahoma State University Fire Protection Publication’s comprehensive preschool curriculum project for young children. Firefighter Jim, Sparkles, and her two-legged friend, Firefighter Dayna, are the main characters of the book. Chief Mauro and firefighters from the department are also featured in the fun and educationally sound fire safety book. Colorful pictures complement this story about Sparkles.

 

Hilton stated, “Children under the age of five are at much greater risk of fire-related deaths than others. The group accounts for 11% of fire-related deaths in the United States ~ the highest population for any age group. I was inspired by my work as a firefighter and by my four-legged friend, Sparkles, to create this fun and educationally sound book. What an honor that the book has been selected from such a broad field of children’s book authors and publishers.”

 

For almost a decade, Hilton and her fire safety dogs have made it their mission to save lives, reduce injuries and decrease property losses from fire. In recent years, she and her fire safety dogs have concentrated their fire safety efforts on pre-schoolers, kindergartners, first graders and their caregivers.

Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of USABookNews.com, noted that this year’s contest yielded an unprecedented number of entries. Keen says of the awards, now in their eighth year, “The 2010 results represent a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array of publishers throughout the United States.”

This brings the total to six national awards for Hilton’s children’s fire safety books. The books are available at Amazon.com and at book stores.

 

A complete list of the winners and finalists may be found at www.usabooknews.com.

LOCAL STUDENTS’ RECYCLING EFFORTS HELP KEEP 50 MILLION DRINK POUCHES FROM LANDFILLS

Woodward Memorial School Students Learn the Power of Numbers

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA, August 20 – The teachers at the Woodward Memorial School used to see a lot of Capri Sun drink pouches get thrown away.  Once they signed up to recycle them through a company called TerraCycle, the school began earning two cents for every one of those pouches and became part of a nationwide effort that has just reached an impressive milestone of keeping 50 million pouches out of landfills.  In addition, TerraCycle, which makes affordable, eco-friendly products from packaging waste, and Capri Sun have paid one million dollars to schools and non-profits in return for the recycled drink pouches. 

In more visual terms, 50 million drink pouches are the weight of 20 school buses or, if laid side by side, would cover 480 football fields or cover the Grand Canyon nine times!  Instead of going to landfill those pouches are now reborn as tote bags, backpack, lunch boxes and more!

“Just this past December our school started a recycling program in the cafeteria. After learning about TerraCycle, we started collecting the drink pouches in January,” explained Mary Ellen Duggan, the Woodward School nurse and coordinator for the Drink Pouch Brigade.  “In two months we have collected about 800 drink pouches and cut our trash disposal from the cafeteria in half!  We are very grateful for this opportunity to help us become more responsible citizens while earning money for our school.”

The school is part of the Capri Sun Drink Pouch Brigade a free program that pays schools and non-profits to collect non-recyclable waste that would otherwise go to a landfill.  The program is beneficial in so many ways: kids and adults are educated about recycling and resource conservation and inspired to make a difference in their own community; much needed funding is provided to schools and charities and millions of pieces of packaging are saved from landfills every week!

More than 70,000 schools and community groups around the country have signed up to help collect almost 30 different kinds of products and packaging TerraCycle accepts.  The participating organizations will collectively earn over 2 million dollars this year.

Any interested organizations can learn more or sign up for free today at www.terracycle.net.

THE TERRACYCLE STORY

In nature, waste does not exist.  All materials are reused or recycled through natural processes.  However, modern human society and technology has created a massive waste issue.  The creation of complex plastic polymers during and after the Industrial Revolution broke the closed-loop, sustainable system that had existed on Planet Earth for billions of years.  Now the irrepressible demand for safe, conveniently packaged consumer goods is annually creating billions of tons of non-recyclable or difficult to recycle waste.

 

Enter TerraCycle, the ambitious dream of a college freshman turned sustainable business pioneer, a company that makes eco-friendly, affordable consumer products from waste.  By using the trillions of pieces of packaging that go to landfill every year to build high quality consumer goods, TerraCycle hopes to replace the need to create virgin materials, like new plastics and textiles, by showing the world it is more sustainable and more profitable to use waste as a raw material.

 

TerraCycle started in 2001 as a simple organic fertilizer company.  Two college students fed the leftovers from their cafeteria to an army of worms.  Lucky for those industrious, penniless students, the cafeterias on their campus discarded plenty of food and the worms gladly worked for a good meal.  They harvested the worm compost, or Worm Poop as it became fondly known, and liquefied it into a completely organic, ultra-effective fertilizer.  However, with no money they could not buy the packaging they needed to start selling their fertilizer.  Undiscouraged, they began to bottle their liquid fertilizer in used soda bottles they collected from recycling bins, unwittingly creating the world’s first product made from AND packaged entirely in waste!

 

Nine years later TerraCycle has grown from a two-man, dorm room operation to an international leader in the field of ‘eco-capitalism’ and ‘upcycling’ and is starting to prove to the world that you can make a difference and a profit at the same time.  However, it takes more than an army of worms to change the world.  TerraCycle’s founders realized the revolutionary idea they discovered was not Worm Poop, but using waste materials which have no value to make products that are both sustainable and affordable.

 

Today, TerraCycle partners with major consumer goods manufacturers such as Kraft Foods, Frito-Lay, Mars, Kashi, Kimberly-Clark and many more to run a massive network of individuals, schools and organizations who get paid to help collect and upcycled non-recyclable packaging.  From drink pouches to chip bags to candy wrappers to diaper packaging, TerraCycle and its partners pay two cents per unit of returned packaging and the collected material is combined with other waste streams and upcycled into a wide range of consumer products.

 

These collection fundraisers are called Brigades and have been running since 2007, when the first was launched with organic beverage manufacturer, Honest Tea.  In only three years, over 60,000 locations and 10 million people have got involved and are helping to collect, not discard, their trash.  Almost 2 billion pieces of pre- and post-consumer packaging have been collected and more than one million dollars has been donated to schools and non-profits. To learn more or get involved today, simply go to www.terracycle.net.

 

In 2009, TerraCycle began to take its successful Brigade programs overseas, launching in the UK, Canada and Mexico with Kraft Foods and in Brazil in with PepsiCo and Frito-Lay.   During 2010, the company expanded into the Middle East and mainland Europe, and TerraCycle aims to extend its upcycling programs to as many countries as possible.

Inc. Magazine’s annual ranking of the fastest growing private companies in America listed TerraCycle in the top 200 in 2010, moving from the 288th spot and in the top 10 of consumer goods companies in 2009.  Retailers carrying TerraCycle products include: The Home Depot, Walmart, Target, Whole Foods Market, OfficeMax, Petco, Urban Outfitters, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Toys ‘R Us and many more. Many of TerraCycle’s products can also be found online at www.shoponlygreen.com
