Capstone Announces the Winner of an $8,900 Value

 Bathroom Give-Away Contest

It’s no secret that many people continue to struggle with the depressed economy.   At the same time, families are trying to make the best of what they do have at home.  For all those people that desperately need home renovations, what do they do if they just cannot afford them?  More likely than not, now is a time that many homeowners are putting that to-do list aside.

Charbel and Christine Najem, co-owners of Capstone General Contracting, Inc. in Worcester, wanted to give homeowners an opportunity they couldn’t afford to miss out on.

On April 20th, 2011, Capstone launched their “Help!  I Need a New Bathroom” Contest on their Facebook Page.  Through July 5th, 2011, Facebook fans of the Capstone Page could enter a photo of their current bathroom – proving just how desperately they needed renovations – for the chance to win a free bathroom makeover package valued at $8,900.  A voting phase then began on July 5th, when all participants could invite their friends and family to vote for their bathroom photo on the Capstone Facebook wall. 

The ultimate goal of this contest was to drive more fans to the Capstone Facebook Page.

On Thursday, July 28th, Capstone announced the winner of the “Help!  I Need a New Bathroom” Contest; the participant with the highest number of votes for their bathroom would win.  Andrea Morais, a local West Boylston resident, received a very welcomed phone call from Christine and Charbel on Thursday.   Welcomed, because she learned that she had won that free bathroom makeover she otherwise may not have been able to afford. 

Charbel and Christine Najem have built their business based on the notion that lasting relationships with the people they serve are invaluable.  As they continue to cultivate a stronger Facebook presence for Capstone, their hope is that their desire to help people will become more widespread.

This is why Capstone is so successful.  Whether it’s getting involved in the local community or giving away an $8,900 bathroom package to a deserving homeowner, Christine and Charbel share a simple yet powerful belief: helping others is the most rewarding part of business and life.

Capstone General Contracting, Inc. is located at 51 Union Street, Suite 118 in Worcester, Ma.  More information can be found on their website, www.gccapstone.com, their Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/gccapstone, or by calling 508-799-4463.

 State Officials to Lead 11 Public Tours of Forest and Wildlife Lands

Focus on State Forestry and Habitat Management Practices

Professional foresters and wildlife biologists from the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will host a series of 11 tours this summer and fall to discuss state forestry and wildlife habitat management practices. DFG’s Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) will host eight public tours on the Commonwealth’s Wildlife Management Areas (WMA). DCR will host three public tours.

The MassWildlife tours will occur across the entire state and will focus on abandoned agricultural lands that have been reclaimed into shrubland and grassland habitat to support both rare species and other native wildlife species of conservation concern.

“Both grassland and shrubland habitats have declined dramatically throughout the Commonwealth over the past century, and native plants and animals associated with these open habitats have declined as well, sometimes at alarming rates,” said DFG Commissioner Mary Griffin. “We encourage people to attend one or more of these events to learn how active habitat management bolsters native wildlife populations.”

Two DCR tours will take participants through forested areas harvested for the purposes of watershed management, timber production as well as forest and wildlife habitat diversity. A third DCR tour will feature a small sawmill that produces rough lumber for local home and agricultural uses.

“The Patrick-Murray Administration is interested in engaging the public on issues related to forests and welcomes people to share their thoughts, questions and concerns while enjoying a walk in the woods,” said DCR Commissioner Edward M. Lambert, Jr.

The state lands tours will be conducted rain or shine. Participants should wear sturdy footwear and bring bug repellant. Directions to meeting places and descriptions of each site are listed below.

Peter J. Nicholas was born December 29th, 1934 in the village of Palopaniagia ,Sparta, Greece. He died at home in Southborough, MA, surrounded by his loving family on June 24, 2011, at the age of 76. He was the proud father and best friend to his son Ilya P. Nicholas and his wife Lucy and beloved grandfather to his favorite girls, Natasha and Elyssa. Peter was predeceased by his parents, Arete and John Nikolakakos(Sparta, Greece). He leaves his three loving and dedicated sisters and their respective spouses , Angeleki and John Tselekis of Marlboro, MA., Penelope and Takis Michailos of Tarpon Springs, FL., and Kanella and Anargyros Skantzaris of Burlington, MA. He was also the Uncle and Great Uncle to 17 adoring nieces and nephews. Peter was a charismatic and compassionate man with an endearing smile, who easily made friends from all walks of life. Peter's self-written motto was, " The world belongs to those who dream and dare take that step beyond", and that was how he lived his life, always on his own terms. By the age of 12 Peter had lost both his Father and Grandfather. Peter and his eldest sister, Angeleki, became the primary caregivers for their Mother and sisters in war-torn Greece. He worked numerous jobs (construction, waiter, etc.) over the next 10 years to help support his family and eventually help them immigrate to the United States. Peter served in the Greek military, and after completing his service, he attended and graduated from the Dolianites Beauty Academy of Greece. Immediately thereafter he opened up his own salon which quickly became an attraction for top models in Greece. Peter then followed his family and immigrated to Lynn, MA in 1962. For the next 10 years, he worked as a successful stylist in top salons in Harvard Sq. Cambridge and on Newbury St. Boston. Being true to his entrepreneurial spirit, Peter was always his own boss. He went on to design and run two of his own salons in Marlboro, MA. Over the next two decades, in addition to his beauty salons, he bought and renovated numerous real estate properties throughout Massachusetts. Peter's real passion was his art, his photography and abstract painting. He worked as a photographer in exclusive clubs and events in the Boston area, and he photographed numerous entertainers, celebrities, and public figures. As an artist, he painted until the last months of his life. His abstract paintings decorate the walls of numerous public and private institutions and businesses around the country. He loved sharing his passion for art. True to his Greek heritage, he strived for a balance between mind and body. He was a philosopher /writer of many self help positive quotations. He kept abreast on local/world politics and always looked forward to a good debate. He was a master builder who created beautiful and unique additions to his homes and business'. But most of all he loved to garden. He gained great pleasure in sharing the fruits of his labor with his family and friends. Peter took the greatest pride in his son who was the focal point of his life. They shared an unbreakable bond of friendship, loyalty and love for each other. He will be tremendously missed by his son, family, and friends. At Peter's request he was cremated and all services will be private. Contributions in his memory can be made out to Peter Nicholas Art Institute at PO Box 692, Southborough, MA, for support in art education.

 SOLAR ACTIVITY: For the third day in a row, sunspot 1261 has unleashed a significant M-class solar flare.  The latest blast at 0357 UT on August 4th registered M9.3 on the Richter Scale of Flares, almost crossing the threshold into X-territory (X-flares are the most powerful kind). Also, at least two coronal mass ejections are en route to Earth, and they could provoke mild to moderate geomagnetic storms when they arrive on August 4th through 6th.  High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.  Check http://spaceweather.com for details and updates.
 
 DON'T MISS THE STORM: Would you like a call when geomagnetic storms are in progress? Space weather alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).

The Southboro 11 District Team enjoyed a very successful summer season.  The goal of the team this summer was to compete in highly competitive tournaments and win the District 5 11 year old tournament.  The boys accomplished every one of their 2011 summer goals.  Overall, the team ended the season 20-3 in games played, winning three championships in three different tournaments (Easton, Mansfield, and District 5) and making it to the semi-finals of the Milford 12 year old tournament.

The boys played very consistently all summer with great defense, very effective pitching from a deep staff, and strong & timely hitting.  The team hit over .500 for the season and had a combination of clutch hitters, OBP machines and power hitters. This combination of hitting prowess made it very difficult for teams to pitch around the entire line-up. The pitching staff was excellent all season and was backed by an excellent defense that made clutch plays when it counted.  The final few games of the season were exciting with a close win over Northboro in the District semi-finals and a see-saw win in a game versus Shrewsbury in the District 5 finals game …a nice way to end the season.  Congrats go out to all of the boys on the Southboro Distict 11 Summer team and their coaches.

Sales tax holiday set for August 13-14; Governor will sign

Taking quick action, the Legislature has approved a bill authorizing a sales tax holiday for the weekend of August 13-14. The Governor's office has already said he will sign the bill, probably early next week.

The terms and conditions for the holiday will be identical to those of previous holidays; Technical Information Release 10-10 from last year's holiday will get a quick rewrite to make it work for this year.

DOR's preliminary estimate is that taxpayers will save about $20.5 million over the two days.

The holiday began as a one-day event 2004, and has been held annually since then with the exception of the summer of 2009, which was the same time the sales tax increased from 5 percent to the current 6.25 percent. The savings to taxpayers have been estimated as follows: 2004, $10.1 million; 2005, $15.4 million; 2006, $16.9 million; 2007, $15.9 million; 2008, $14.9 million; and 2010, $19.9 million (first time holiday was held with sales tax rate set at 6.25 percent).

First EEE Positive Mosquito Sample in Massachusetts
 Cover up or wear bug spray to avoid getting bitten

 BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced today that Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus has been detected in mosquitoes in Massachusetts for the first time this year. EEE infection was confirmed by the William A. Hinton State Laboratory Institute today. The mosquito sample was collected on July 19th in the town of Bridgewater in Plymouth County. There have been no human cases of reported West Nile virus (WNV) infection or EEE so far this year in Massachusetts.
 There was one case of EEE in a Massachusetts resident in 2010, as well as in a Rhode Island resident who was probably exposed to the virus in Massachusetts. Indicators of significant risk for human infection with EEE last year led to a large scale aerial spray to control populations of mosquitoes in Bristol and Plymouth Counties. EEE is usually spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. EEE is a serious disease in all ages and can be deadly.
 
 “Today is our first reminder that EEE virus is circulating in our environment,” said DPH State Epidemiologist, Dr. Al DeMaria. “Southeastern Massachusetts has historically borne the brunt of EEE, although the Northeast along the New Hampshire border has emerged as a concern more recently. It isn’t exclusive to those areas, however, and avoiding mosquito bites should be a priority wherever you are.”
 
 All WNV and EEE positive results from 2011 can be found on the Arbovirus Surveillance Information web page at www.mass.gov/dph/wnv.
 
 People have an important role to play in protecting themselves and their loved ones from illnesses caused by mosquitoes.
 
 Avoid Mosquito Bites
 •Apply Insect Repellent when Outdoors. Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), oil of lemon eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] or IR3535 according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30% or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age.
 
 •Be Aware of Peak Mosquito Hours. The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes. Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that occur during evening or early morning.
 
 •Clothing Can Help Reduce Mosquito Bites. Wearing long-sleeves, long pants and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.
 
 Mosquito-Proof Your Home
 •Drain Standing Water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or discarding items that hold water. Check rain gutters and drains. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change water in birdbaths frequently.
 
 •Install or Repair Screens. Keep mosquitoes outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors.
 
 More information is available on the DPH website: www.mass.gov/dph/wnv  Information about WNV and Eastern Equine Encephalitis is also available by calling the DPH recorded information line at 1-866-MASS-WNV (1-866-627-7968), or the Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800

College: Saint Anselm College
Future Job: Public Relations & Communications/Company Event Planner

Why did you become an intern? I thought that this would be a great opportunity for me to gain experience. Also, I enjoy helping people and this internship  enables me to work with other volunteers and employees for an important cause.

What's your primary role? I am one of the special events interns.My work includes a wide range of PR tasks, research and helping support the events.

What do you like best? The feeling that I have at the end of the day, knowing that my dedication and hard work will benefit a large group of people living with this disease. This is certainly an extraordinary feeling and the associated rewards of the internship become apparent to me each day.

For information on internships and other volunteer opportunities in Mass and NH, contact Laura.Bombrun or call 617.868.718.

What is the Difference?

"Early-Stage"   "Early-Onset"    "Younger-Onset" 

 

Early-stage Alzheimer's refers to a stage of the disease progression.

Younger-onset Alzheimer's, also known as Early-Onset Alzheimer's, refers to individuals younger than age 65 who have a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. It does not refer to a specific stage of the disease progression. People with younger-onset dementia can be in any stage, early through late. In addition, younger-onset Alzheimer's is commonly used in international communities, & there is value in seeking not only to be consistent but also in using this as a better descriptor of the person with the disease. (Note: Avoid shortening to "young-onset Alzheimer's," as that term has been used by the Mayo Clinic to refer to a very small population aged 17 to 45 that have an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

Introduction to the Use of Compasses and Maps for Land Navigation

 

Through classroom instruction and hands-on practice, learn to read topographic maps, use geographic location systems, compasses and clinometers, and global positioning systems. During a field excursion, practice navigating in small groups to several points using a map and compass. All participants should be prepared for classroom lecture and field time in the woods at a local state park. Bring a note pad, mechanical pencil, cell phone, calculator, lunch, drinking water, insect repellent, sunscreen, and dress appropriately for the weather (rain or shine). Bring a compass, clinometer, GPS, protractor, or UTM plotter if you have them; otherwise they are provided. It is strongly recommended that participants either wait to purchase any of these items until after the training or contact the instructor prior to purchasing anything.
