State and Federal Officials Expand Quarantine Zone into Town of

Auburn Due to the Discovery of Additional Trees in Worcester

County Infested with Asian Longhorned Beetles

Boston – The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the U.S.  Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) today announced the  expansion of the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) regulated area in Worcester County after the discovery of three infested trees near Holy Cross College in Worcester. Because of this discovery, DCR and APHIS will expand the current central Massachusetts regulated area by four square miles. The federal and state quarantine zone for the area will now be 98 square

miles.

An arborist working for a local tree care company reported a suspicious tree to the Massachusetts ALB cooperative eradication program. Further inspections by eradication program staff identified two additional infested trees within the southern edge of the regulated area boundary line in Worcester. “The expansion of the regulated area is necessary to safeguard communities from the further spread of this invasive insect,” said DCR Commissioner Ed Lambert. “We appreciate the patience and understanding of local communities as we continue to work hard to contain and eliminate ALB infestation within the Worcester County Regulated Area.”

What an infested tree will look like.  This tree is not the Electric Ave tree but one in the Burncoat Street area.

 

Although the expanded regulated area now extends into Auburn, as of today, no infested trees

have been discovered in the town. APHIS ALB Eradication protocols require that the regulated

boundary be at least 1.5 miles from an infested tree.

 

State and federal officials will hold a public meeting to provide information and answer questions on Thursday, May 12 at 6 p.m. Pakachoag Church, 203 Pakachoag Street, Auburn. Subsequent public meetings will be determined at a later date.

The beetle, native to Asia, is a destructive pest of hardwood trees, including maple, horse chestnut,

birch, poplar, willow, and elm. The golden rain tree (Koelreuteria paniculata) has recently been added to the Federal Order of host genera for the Asian longhorned beetle. This order officially lists the golden rain tree as a regulated species in Massachusetts.

 

ALB was first discovered in Massachusetts in 2008. The regulated area includes the Worcester, West Boylston and Boylston, as well as portions of Holden, Shrewsbury and Auburn. To view the current Worcester County quarantine map, please visit:

http://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant_health/plant_pest_info/asian_lhb/alb_maps.shtml

The public can assist the eradication effort by allowing program officials access to their property to evaluate susceptible trees for signs of ALB infestation, and by reporting sightings of the beetle or any signs of infestation.

 

For more information and to report signs or symptoms of ALB go to www.BeetleBusters.info  or

http://massnrc.org/pests/alb , and for answers about program activities please call the Massachusetts

ALB Cooperative Eradication Program at (508) 799-8330 or toll-free at (866) 702-9938.

Hello Music Lovers,
 
This Saturday we welcome back our friends The Kennedys.  The first time I saw the Kennedy's was the first time we camped at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival about 10 years ago.  We were blown away by their energy and their honesty.  As FRFF regulars (them and us), we love seeing them most years. 
 
Don't forget: 
  •  Bring stuff for the Southborough Food Pantry.  You are coming anyway, so it's easy, but it's also very important.
  • Select dinner and a meal when you purchase your tickets and make a reservation at Tomasso for a 3 course meal for only $20 ($25 if not paid in advance).
  • We have very affordable childcare at the venue! 

It's going to be fun.  Can't wait to see you.
 
Cheers,
Joe

Light a Candle!
  Light a Candle! Virtual Rally
Light a candle to illuminate the fight against Alzheimer's

Dear Linda,

Light a CandleFour days from now, advocates from across the country will descend on Washington, D.C. for the 2011 Alzheimer's Association 2011 Advocacy Forum. They come with a single purpose: to tell Congress to make Alzheimer's disease a national priority. On Sunday night, they'll gather in the shadow of the Capitol to show their support of the fight against Alzheimer's at the Candlelight Tribute Rally.

Help to amplify their voice by participating in the rally from home. Light a candle at the Alzheimer's Association Virtual Candlelight Rally to tell your story and take action against this devastating disease that affects millions of Americans. When you light a candle, you can post a message to honor or remember an individual and help spread awareness about Alzheimer's disease.

Our advocates will gather to let our nation know that time is of the essence; that we cannot wait; that we must do all we can right now to change the course of Alzheimer's. And you can join them by being a virtual participant in the rally.

We'll be in touch after the Forum with additional updates, information and ways you can take action in the fight against Alzheimer's.

Sincerely,

Robert Egge
Vice President
Public Policy Division

Claude Monet's Garden Flowers

The opportunity to visit Claude Monet's garden in Giverny, France is a chance of a lifetime for plant lovers.  I was able to visit several years ago and wanted to share with you what I discovered.  Strolling through his many gardens, one feels like you are walking in his paintings; it's incredible.  I realized something wonderful while I was there: that you too can grow almost everything Monet did in your own back yard!  That's correct; he really didn't grow anything that different. 

Gulbankian Farms will be growing some of Monet's favorites for 2011:

  • Giant Dahlias-SEE PHOTOS BELOW(come early)
  • Cosmos
  • Salvia
  • Marigolds
  • Nasturtiums
  • Geraniums-he loved red!  (See above photo)
  • Pansies and violas
  • Nicotiana (tobacco plant)

Worcester Firefighters Memorial 6K Race
THIS YEAR'S RACE IS ALSO IN MEMORY OF FF KEVIN TURNER ON LINE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
ON REGISTRATION PAGE

Let me start by telling you a little bit about our race. It was started after the loss of our six brothers in the Worcester Cold Storage Fire back in December 3, 1999 and has evolved into Worcester's biggest community and family event. The proceeds from the event have changed since its conception; at first the race was formed to raise money for the permanent Memorial Fund being built in the memory of our fallen brothers. After the first year (in which all of the proceeds were donated to the Memorial Fund) we decided we had to give back to the community, our way of saying thank you for all the support that was given to us during the tragedy. Each year we pick different charities, all non profits and to date we have donated over $275,000. The 11th Memorial race charities have not been determined yet but will be soon.

The race averages over 1,000 walkers / runners and well over 2000 people present at the park on the day of the event.

The race is unlike any other race around. The focus of our race is not on the race itself, nor is its focus on donating to the charities; it is more about the community and bringing the city and surrounding towns together in a city block party. At the event we have a free barbecue, beverages, clowns, and moonwalk, free massages, a live DJ, a post race party (location TBA), a silent sports auction at the park, prizes and much much more. This year we are also having a performance by the Worcester Firefighters Pipes and Drums.


The bonus part of all this is that we raise money for those in need. The other unique thing is you don't have to be a runner / walker to enjoy all of these things, just come to the park and take it all in. The race itself starts at Institute Park running under two aerial ladder trucks draping the American Flag and ends at Institute Park. The course is a figure eight that run by the Gove St Fire Station and through Worcester's downtown.

The race not only has the area's best runners competing but also has those who enjoy walking and reflecting on the moment. The memory of our fallen brothers will never die as long as we keep this event going, and with the help of our sponsors and people like you getting the word out, it will continue to live on. Please help the Worcester Fire Department help support local non-profit charities.

The WFD 6K has quickly become one of Worcester's biggest community and family oriented charitable events and we touched more lives than we ever felt possible. Our Committee is overwhelmed by the continued support of the Worcester Fire Department by our sponsors that have become part of our team and all the runners in the past 10 years. This year's event will not only pay tribute to Jay, Joe, Jerry, Paul, Tim and Tom, but also to Kevin Turner, an active Firefighter we lost last year.


As always, we thank you for your consideration in joining us. For more information and details about this year's race and other ways you can help our efforts, please feel free to contact Lt. John Franco at 508-829-1968 for additional assistance.

Presentation of the Elaine Beals Conservation Award

to Richard Upjohn

 

SOLF has chosen Richard V. Upjohn to receive the Elaine Beals Conservation Award.  Dick, who grew up in New York City, developed a love of the outdoors at his family's summer place in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire.  His passion for hiking, birding, and mountain climbing was honed at a summer camp in the High Peaks area of the Adirondacks where he worked at a summer camp, and later bought a home.  He and his wife Sabra moved to Southborough with their family in 1960 when he came to Fay School.  He has shared his love of nature with students.  To emphasize the need to conserve resources Dick started the recyling program at Fay.  He later helped establish the recycling program for the town, serving on the Southborough Recycling Committee. Dick has served the town of Southborough in several other capacities, serving as a longtime member of the Conservation Commission and on the Community Preservation Commission. Practicing what he preaches, he is often seen bicycling about town and continues to stay in shape by running.  SOLF is pleased to recognize a person who has quietly served the cause of conservation.   Please join us in honoring Dick.

25th Annual APDA MA Chapter Parkinson Walkathon

 

Get Ready to “Walk the Walk” on Sunday, June 5th  

 

The Massachusetts Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is in high gear as it readies for its 25th Annual Massachusetts Chapter Parkinson Walkathon on Sunday, June 5th, 2011.    The Sunday, June 5h event will be held at the Reebok International Headquarters’ track in Canton, MA (1895 J.W. Foster Blvd.) with a start time of 12:00 noon (registration at 11:15am). The location offers a safe environment with plenty of parking and ample facilities for everyone.  The walk total is 3 miles (1 lap = 1/4 mile); however, walkers can walk any part of this or choose to enjoy the beautiful day and the many other activities. (Reebok policy requests no pets at the event.)
 

 KISS 108 FM’s Matt Siegel of Matty in the Morning will be there to lead the festive atmosphere. 

Come alone or bring a team to help support this fundraising endeavor.  One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards vital Parkinson’s disease research approved by the APDA Scientific Advisory Board.  Last year over 1,500 people participated in the Walkathon and the event raised $100.000.  With everyone’s help, we can make this year’s Walkathon even greater.  Whether you walk solo, walk with a team, or come to cheer the walkers on, you can make all the difference in the world to the Parkinson’s disease community.  Come and be proud of yourself for doing something wonderful to help fight Parkinson’s disease!

 

 For further information about the Walkathon please contact the Walk Coordinator, Denyse Turpin at the APDA Information and Referral Center at Boston University Medical Campus: (800) 651-8466 or information@apdama.org     Donations can be mailed to the APDA Massachusetts Chapter - 72 East Concord St, C3 - Boston, MA 02118 (Checks made payable to the APDA MA Chapter) or processed online. Please visit the MA Chapter website at www.apdama.org and the Walkathon event page at apdaparkinson.donordrive.com/event/mawalk2011     We invite you to join us to help make steady strides for Parkinson’s disease research by funding the road to “Ease the Burden - Find a Cure.” We look forward to seeing you there!

 "The Adding Machine" -  by Elmer Rice

Directed by Tom Alera


This darkly comical play tells the story of Mr. Zero, who after 25 years of service to his company is replaced by a mechanical adding machine. Shocked and distraught from this unexpected incident, Mr. Zero takes matters into his own hands. This classic American Expressionistic play follows Mr. Zero’s journey through life, death, romance, and redemption. A landmark piece of theater in 1923 that explored the powerful effects of the rising machine age as well as the search for an understanding about what it means to be human.

Wednesday, May 18 @ 6:00pm (preview performance)
Thursday, May 19 @ 7:00pm
Friday, May 20 @ 7:00pm

Leader Simon Vos (blue pfd and orange shirt relaxes with the attendees) 

Saturday, April 30, Sudbury Valley Trustees volunteers Simon Vos and Jim Lagerbom led a paddle to Cedar Swamp Pond, the headwaters of the Sudbury River.  The paddle began at Fruit Street in Hopkinton on its way to Cedar Swamp Pond in Westborough.  Only when the water level is high is it accessible to the pond.  SVT hosts this program every year in late April or early May.  Pictures taken by leader Jim Lagerbom. 

Leader Simon Vos blazes the trail ahead. It’s a narrow stretch of river with lots of twists and turns

Not only did they see swans along the way, but they also found a swans nest with five eggs, pictured here

MURTHA CULLINA EARNS SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD IN

GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK’S LEGAL FOOD FRENZY

BOSTON, MA … Attorneys and staff of Murtha Cullina LLP participated in the 2011 Greater Boston Food Bank’s Legal Food Frenzy from March 28 through April 8.  Through a combination of monetary donations, food collection, fundraisers, walks, a raffle, and friendly interoffice competitions, Murtha Cullina collected the equivalent of over 37,000 pounds of food towards the Greater Boston Food Bank’s mission to end hunger in the Commonwealth.  At the award ceremony on May 2nd, Attorney General Martha Coakley presented Murtha Cullina with a Special Recognition Award for the Most Actual Food Collected by a Medium Firm. Murtha Cullina’s efforts placed them 4th in the overall competition amongst over 70 participating organizations. 

During the two-week period, Murtha Cullina organized activities including a pot luck luncheon where attorneys and staff made contributions in order to eat a homemade, in-office lunch cooked by Firm employees; a raffle of donated prizes such as restaurant certificates, coffee makers, and Red Sox tickets; walkathons in which participants solicited sponsorships from co-workers, friends and relatives; and theme food contribution days where employees brought in items in the key food categories as identified by the Greater Boston Food Bank website.  Several partners enhanced Firm donation efforts by the use of matching challenges.    

“Murtha Cullina chose the Legal Food Frenzy as a community service project to support the Firm’s community impact as it celebrates its 75th anniversary, and through a Firm-wide effort, collected more than 18 tons of food for needy families” said Robert J. Munnelly, Jr., the Boston office Partner-in-Charge.  “I’m appreciative of the efforts of attorneys and staff in all offices to achieve this marvelous result” said Munnelly.

"Marlboro Senior Panthers Softball opened up their 2011 season this week with the Jr. Panthers traveling to Tewksbury and the Sr. Panthers playing Wayland “A” Team..    The Panthers didn’t start the season on a high note dropping all 3 of the 4 games.

            The Sr. Panthers opened the season with the Wayland “A” Team dropping both ends of the doubleheader.  Sr. Panthers dropped the 1st game 17 - 7 and the 2nd 14 - 10.  Leading the Marlboro offense were Chet Setterlund  7 for 8  and Paul Starek 5 for 7.  Mgr. Scerra said they had a few new players this year and will take a couple of games to come together.  He expects a good season from this team this year.

            The Jr. Panthers travel to their arch rivals in Tewksbury to play an always tough Tewksbury team and split their  doubleheader winning the first game with their offense in high gear 23 – 9 but ran out of gas in 2nd dropping that game 18 – 8..  The Jr. Panthers also had some new players that will help strengthen this team.   The Panther offense was led by Dennis Naylor going 6 for 8 and going for the cycle in the first game and Stephen Bober 6 for 7 including a triple. 

             We are still looking for players 55+ for Sr Panthers team.  Anyone interested should contact Fred Scerra at 774-249-0143 or marlsrsoftball@verizon.net as soon as possible as our season has just started..

LITTLE EAST CONFERENCE MEN’S LACROSSE CHAMPIONSHIP

OWLS DEFEAT WARRIORS 14-9 FOR SECOND STRAIGHT TITLE

            KEENE, N.H.  5/7/11 – The Keene State College men’s lacrosse team used an opportunistic offense and a stingy second half defense to defeat Eastern Conn. State University 14-9 in the championship game of the Little East Conference Championship held at Owl Athletic Complex on Saturday.

            It’s the fourth conference crown for the Owls (14-2) who also captured the title in 2005, 2007 and last season.   Tying a school record with its 11th straight win, Keene State earns the conference’s automatic NCAA Division III Championship berth and awaits the pairings that will be announced on Sunday night. 

            It’s the first time the Owls have won back-t0-back titles. “That was one of goals this year,” said KSC Coach Mark Theriault. 

            Senior Griffin Meehan (Simsbury, Conn.) tallied six goals and two assists to lead the Owls offense while the Keene State defense put the clamps on the Warriors, limiting ECSU to just two second half goals.

Like they did in their regular season meeting, a 19-17 come-from-behind, win, the Owls overcame an early deficit.  Falling behind 3-0, Keene State responded with eight unanswered goals to take an 8-3 lead.  Meehan, scored KSC’s first goal with a crowd-pleasing behind-the-back shot, led the comeback, scoring or assisting on the five of the Owls first six goals.  “We knew they can put a few goals in, but it’s a long game and we weren’t too worried about it,” said Meehan. 

“We were thinking instead of playing,” said Theriault. “Once you get one everyone starts to relax and play our game.”

Senior Grant Albertson got the Warriors back in the game, scoring three of the team’s next four goals, including one with 11 seconds to play in the half, to cut the Owls lead to 9-7 at the break.

Meehan, who was blanketed all game by the Warriors’ defense, and senior Mike Araujo (Southboro, Mass.) scored the only goals in the third quarter as KSC extended its lead to 11-7.

In attempt to clear the ball, KSC sophomore goalie Jason Leser (Brewster, N.Y) accidently lost control of the ball that ended up in the Owls net to make it 11-8.  But Owls shook it off scoring the next three goals to make it a 14-8 game. 

Leser and the Owls defense took over for there.  Lesser stopped a couple of point-blank shots by Salieu Bolivar and a pestering KSC defense managed to keep the Warriors form getting a good shot on net.  “I was seeing the ball well and really felt sharp in goal,” said Leser, who gave his defense a lot of credit for the win.

“We really had to step it up because they have a high-powered defense,” said senior defensive midfielder Warren Dill (Yorktown, N.Y.). 

“We just bucked down in the second half,” said senior defenseman Colin Barnett (Cheshire, Conn.) “We had too good of a season to lose this game. We stayed calm and didn’t celebrate until the game was over.”

Junior Matthews Crimmins scored the final goal of the game for the Owls, putting the ball in the net as he was checked to the ground.

Using his speed to get around Warrior defenders, sophomore Ian Hart (Richmond, N.H.) had a solid game for the Owls, finishing with three goals and two assists.  Araujo and Crimmins each had two goals.

Albertson finished with four goals for the Warriors (12-6).

Both goalies had their share of terrific stops.  Leser finished with 17 saves for the Owls while sophomore Donald Berube stopped 12 shots for ECSU.

KSC won the game despite losing the face-off battle.  Warrior All-American won 21 of 24 face-offs, but the Owls took advantage of several Eastern Conn. turnovers while attempting to clear the ball.

Theriault and the Owls are looking forward to a nice run in the NCAA tournament. “I’m not satisfied with this,” he said.  “We’re looking for a good seed and do some damage in the NCAA tournament.  We’re not just happy to be there anymore.”
