Sorry for the double email.  In the mad scramble to fill the open slot and fill you in, I was a little hasty.  Some of the links were wrong and there was a typo in the subject line.  Also, I got an updated list from the Food Pantry this morning.  ~ Joe

 

Hello Friends!
 
Change of plans...

The original bill was Carolann Solebello and Chris O'Brien.  Chris was in Paris when the deal was sealed and something got lost in translation so Chris found himself double-booked.  No worries thought!  Friend of Steeple Coffeehouse Anthony da Costa will return and share the evening with Carolann!
 
You surely remember Carolann as one of the founding members of Red Molly.  We couldn't be more excited to welcome her back as a solo artist.

And Anthony has been with us before.  Last time it was with another "Molly" - Abbie Gardner.  He is phenomenal!  Anthony, among other awards and distinctions was the youngest winner at both Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festivals! 

Don't be surprised if there is a bit of collaboration (hint, hint).

 
Want to get out, but not sure if the kids will enjoy the show? We are offering affordable childcare along with the continued great dinner deal from Tomasso. 

Seriously - inexpensive date night with ridiculously good food and music!  Why wouldn't you take advantage of that?  Details below. 

 
Cheers,
Joe


 

Carolann A founding member of Red Molly - Carolann has ventured (back) off on her own and is embarking on a solo career that gives us more of what we loved, and some great stuff that we haven't seen recently. 

 

She and her family camped about 150 feet downhill from us at Falcon Ridge with our good friends at the Budgiedome, and we got to know them well by day, and enjoyed their music by night!

 

Since parting with the trio to better balance career and family responsibilities, Carolann continues to earn accolades from reviewers and presenters on her own, performing her New York-inflected brand of original and traditional music as a solo artist. She is currently touring primarily in the Northeast, and recording a new CD, due for release in spring 2011.

    

  

Anthony da Costa  

 Anthony 

"Seeing Anthony da Costa on stage is a perfect storm - talent, intensity, humor, passion, intelligence and charm - all bouncing off the walls of the room he is playing" (Court House Concerts). Anthony's music combines folk, rock, Americana and pop, plus what it's like to be "a very young man, with a very old soul" (legendary New York DJ, Pete Fornatale).

She is currently touring primarily in the Northeast, and recording a new CD, due for release in Spring 2011.

A New York City native, Carolann Solebello first fell in love with mountain music - and the bluegrass and country that grew out of that tradition - while working as an actor in East Tennessee and Kansas. Tunes and techniques she learned from musicians in both places fundamentally changed her approach to songwriting and guitar playing, and subsequently colored her work with Red Molly.

Back before she teamed up with Abbie Gardner and Laurie MacAllister to form Red Molly, Carolann embarked on her musical journey as a solo performer. In the late 1990s, she abandoned a comfortable theatrical career and leapt headlong into the teeming pool of singer-songwriters in her hometown. Armed with a powerful voice and percussive guitar style, she soon found herself swimming in the downtown club scene, recording her first solo album, Just Across the Water (2000), and establishing her own independent label, Elizabeth Records, to release it. In very short order, the soloist became one-fourth of a quartet, folk-pop group CC RAILROAD - and later, one-third of that celebrated trio, Red Molly.

Mass audubon's Focus on Feeders

We would like to thank the nearly 1,300 backyard bird feeding enthusiasts from across Massachusetts who took part in this year's Focus on Feeders.

Hermit Thrush, Copyright Mark RosensteinEach year the number of participants continues to climb, and as these numbers grow the data becomes more valuable and more interesting.

Focus on Feeders helps to raise conservation awareness and furthers Mass Audubon's efforts to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat throughout Massachusetts.

A few highlights from the 2011 Focus on Feeders:

  • More than 50 bird species were reported.
  • Species which were observed in the greatest numbers (with links to distribution maps):
  • There were only slight changes in numbers of birds per feeder and very little change in rank order from last year.  Some of these changes, such as the decline in the number of American Robins reported, may have been due to the heavy and deep snows that accumulated in the weeks prior to Focus on Feeders weekend.
  • Feeder activity was somewhat reduced at feeders this year. Both junco and  goldfinch numbers were down from previous years, but Black-capped Chickadee sightings were up. Common Redpoll sightings were up this year, but as fate would have it, the sightings became significantly more frequent after the Feeder weekend. For example, a flock of 100+ Common Redpolls was present at feeders in West Concord during the latter portion of February.
  • Some interesting patterns are beginning to emerge from the Focus on Feeders data, and we will continue to provide more detailed analysis of these results in upcoming posts on our web site. For instance, European Starlings appear to be experiencing a long-term decline in feeder numbers. We will be reviewing data for those participants who have been reporting since 2004 in an effort to focus our analysis on changes in those feeder reports.

View the map of number of species by town. (As always care should be taken before drawing conclusions from what may be short-term and minor fluctuations in numbers.)

Thanks to your participation, our winter feeder database continues to grow. The current Focus on Feeders program dates from 1997, and the updated rank order of birds visiting feeders since 1997 can be found in this table. (PDF 97K)

We would like to hear from you!

Please let us know how we can continue to improve this program and increase participation.

We set a record for participation in 2011, and we had 315 towns out of 351 Massachusetts towns and cities reporting. We would like to continue to grow the numbers of reports and get a record from every town in Massachusetts. Encourage your friends and neighbors to participate and help continue to grow participation in 2012. The more participants we have, the more valuable the data.

Our participants reported that they feed birds an average of 12 months of the year. The majority feed sunflower seed, followed by suet, thistle, and mixed seed. Most participants shop for bird food at grocery stores, but many also support our conservation efforts by purchasing bird feeding supplies and equipment at the Audubon Shop and our wildlife sanctuaries.

Of the nearly 1,300 people who took part in this event, more than 66% were Mass Audubon members — we'd like to thank our members for their support as well as their participation!

Did your community participate? How many different species were seen in your region and around the state? Find out by viewing our participation and species distribution maps.

Want to learn more about birds and birding?

A total of 450 participants, members and non-members alike, told us they had taken a Mass Audubon birding program — browse our upcoming birding programs at your local sanctuaries. If you are interested in other ways to get involved in Mass Audubon's bird conservation work there are many opportunities:

  • Coming May 13-14 is our annual statewide Bird-a-thon, a fun 24-hour search for species, which raises important funds for our statewide wildlife and habitat protection efforts.
  • Mass Audubon's Oriole Project is moving into Phase 2 of efforts to document the distribution and abundance of this beautiful bird. We continue to seek citizen scientists as we now focus on collecting direct evidence of nests or nesting behavior. Help us find American Kestrels and Whip-poor-wills, too!
  • Focus on Feeders takes place every February, but you can record your bird sightings throughout the year with Mass Audubon's eBird, our online birding tool.

Additionally, 85% of you reported that you had visited a Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuary. With spectacular sites from the Berkshires to Cape Cod and the Islands, Mass Audubon offers many wonderful opportunities for bird watching, hiking, paddling and other outdoor activities. Find a sanctuary in your part of the state.

Again, thank you all for your participation and enthusiasm!

Legislature Passes Bill Authorizing
Increased Funding for Road Repair

 

(BOSTON) – State Representative Carolyn Dykema is pleased to announce the passage of legislation today authorizing $200 million in funding for the maintenance and upkeep of municipal roads and bridges across the Commonwealth. The funding will be distributed directly to municipalities.

 

The $200 million will result in municipalities, including Holliston, Hopkinton, Medway, Southborough and Westborough, receiving a 29% increase in transportation funding over the last fiscal year. 

Rep. Dykema strongly supported the funding which will help maintain local roads and which recognizes the significant roadway repairs that will be necessary due to the harsh winter.

Essential Skills: It Starts with Communication

Friday, April 15, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.

Heywood Hospital, 242 Green Street, Gardner

Avoiding common communication problems can reduce caregiver stress and decrease frustration for the person with dementia. Strategies for more effective communication can make conversations, activities and daily tasks more successful and help the person you are caring for remain active and engaged. This informative workshop also addresses helpful ways to respond to difficult questions or behaviors. Specifically designed with family caregivers in mind. No professional caregivers please!

Could You Benefit from a Support Group?
Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia impacts every aspect of daily life. The task of caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease can be challenging. As the disease progresses, the caregiver often faces tests of problem solving, stamina and resiliency. Caregivers can fell isolated, alone and frustrated. Click to read more and connect to support groups near you.

Meet Volunteer Edward Cederholm, Jr.
Ed Cederholm

NOTE: Ed and our fabulous team will be running the Boston, Monday, April 18th. Turn out and cheer them on!

 

Hometown: Weymouth, MA

Why did you become a volunteer? After running the Boston Marathon with the Run for the Memory team in honor of my Mom and her caregiver, my Dad, I thought that running the marathon and doing my fundraising would satisfy my need to help families and individuals dealing with dementia. I found great satisfaction in being able to do something positive that would make a difference for those affected and help set an example of the role good health can play in preventing this disease. But, I also saw how much this program meant to its participants and their families. Not to mention the potential fundraising and awareness that could help so many more!

What do you do?  I serve as a Team Leader for the Run for the Memory team which has grown from a handful of Boston Marathon runners in 2002 to more than 300 active participants in marathons, half marathons, 5 mile races, triathlons and even two seasons of 200 Mile Relays. I am very proud to be a part of securing charity partnerships with the Reach the Beach Relay series, Boston's Run to Remember, Max Performance Triathlon Series, and the New Balance Falmouth Road Race.

How long have you been involved?  Since 2003.

What do you like best? It's been very rewarding to see the growth of the Run program because it has come at a time when I feel there is the greatest need. Not only are the requests for services at an all time high, but the financial situation of most individuals is at its lowest. With my involvement as a volunteer I can expand my contribution far beyond what I can offer financially.

SAVINGS AT EMS
UPDATE ON HABITAT RESTORATION

Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) at Solomon Pond Mall will be having its semi-annual Club Days on Friday, April 8th and Saturday, April 9th.  If you are a member of SOLF, you will receive a 25% discount on any EMS brand merchandise and a 20% discount on other merchandise by showing your SOLF membership card.  EMS and SOLF have partnered on two occasions to hold snow shoe clinics.  Employees of EMS have also volunteered on several occasions to help create hiking trails at Beals Preserve.
We want to thank EMS for their generosity in helping us and for extending this savings opportunity to our members.

We would also like to update you on the progress of the habitat restoration project at Beals Preserve. The main clearing has been completed, but works remains to be done. The large mechanical mower left behind considerable debris including some along the main farm lane. Several work days this spring are scheduled to try to clean the debris up.  Within the cleared areas, there are also stumps that could not be cut as low as desired due to the amount of snow in January. There will be a group of workers with chain saws and other tools, working to clean up the stumps and slash in the field on Thur. afternoon, April 7th.  We will keep you updated as other work is scheduled.

New Store in Town

April 5, 2011 - The new Stony brook store had their soft opening this week.  It is under new owners/management and they have completely transformed the store to fit into Southborough.  There is still much to do in the store according to owner Salim Kassouf.  Plans include a great selection of fine wines and beer within a few weeks and more convenience and food items.  Right now they are open with snacks, sundries, bread, soda, ice, breakfast items, chips and more.  They are a MA lottery outlet also.  Right now their special is one gallon of Hood 1% milk for $1.99.    A grand opening is scheduled at a later date.  

 

Setting Records

On April 3, 2011 fifteen St. Mark’s students led by St. Mark’s mathematics teacher Dr. James Tanton succeeded in setting a new paper folding record of 13 folds using 13,000 feet (almost 2 ½ miles!) of toilet paper and the 3rd floor of MIT’s famous Infinite Corridor. The attached video documents the event. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNgxmyGPZls

 

In 2002, then high-school student Britney Gallivan, broke the urban myth that it is impossible to fold a piece of paper in half (each fold from the same direction) only seven or eight times. With 2000 ft of toilet paper she managed to accomplish 12 folds.

 

Please let me know if you’d like more information or to speak with Dr. Tanton about the new record.

 

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 341 boarding and day students from 17 states and 17 countries. For more information, go to www.stmarksschool.org

Assabet Valley Mastersingers will focus on “A British Perspective”

in the concert scheduled for 8:00 PM on Saturday, May 7th at Evangelical Congregational Church, West Main Street (Route 30) and Church Street, Westborough.  Poetry infuses all of the three widely different selections on the program.  Henry Purcell’s Come Ye Sons of Art is a celebratory Birthday Ode for Queen Mary written in 1694.  Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice (1946) is a more solemn voicing of love and death by Gerald Finzi.  Finally, Benjamin Britten’s delightful and exuberant Rejoice in the Lamb (1943) proclaims the unique ways that each creature worships God.

  Artistic Director Robert Eaton will lead the ensemble, accompanied by organist Brett Maguire.  The four vocal soloists will be soprano Patrice Tiedemann, mezzo Jacque Wilson, tenor Stanley Wilson, and baritone Steven Small.

The location is accessible to the physically challenged.  Assistive listening systems, courtesy of Crossroads Community Foundation, are available at all concerts for use by hearing impaired audience members. Large print programs will be offered to those desiring enhanced readability.

            Concert tickets may be purchased at Robinson Music Company, Westborough; Shattuck Pharmacy, Northborough; Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, Shrewsbury; English Garden Florist, Southborough; Arts Alliance, Hudson; and Joy-Den Jewelers and Main Street Café in Marlborough.  Advance sale tickets are discounted $1 (one) from the regular price of $18 (eighteen) and $15 (fifteen) for students and senior citizens.

            For further information please call (978) 562-9838 or reference www.avmsingers.org. Partial funding for the Assabet Valley Mastersingers, a non-profit organization, has been provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council through local Arts Councils.

Hacked

 

IRVING, TEXAS – April 1, 2011 - On March 30th, an incident was detected where a subset* of Epsilon clients' customer data were exposed by an unauthorized entry into Epsilon's email system. The information that was obtained was limited to email addresses and/or customer names only. A rigorous assessment determined that no other personal identifiable information associated with those names was at risk. A full investigation is currently underway.

For Consumer Inquiries please contact Sarah Branam (303-410-5369, sbranam@epsilon.com)

* Updated April 4, 2011: The affected clients are approximately 2 percent of total clients and are a subset of clients for which Epsilon provides email services.

 

That was the press release on April Fool's day but it wasn't a joke.  The update April 4th makes it sound as though nothing happened.  Businesses include Best Buy, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citibank, Walgreens, Disney, Barclay's Bank, U.S. Bancorp, Marriott, Ritz Carlton, L.L. Bean, Home Shopping Network, TiVo, College Board,  Target, and more potentially to be added.
