Southborough, MA  – St. Mark’s School announced that Jack Dewey of Southborough, MA (Class of 2012) was named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. Dewey will now compete to become a National Merit Finalists, with the ultimate goal of receiving a National Merit Scholarship award in the spring of 2012.

Dewey also earned the highest score on the national Spanish exam and was recognized as an AP Scholar.

AUTUMN OUTDOOR SAFETY TIPS 

                                       

Fall is a wonderful time to be outdoors with its dazzling colors, crisp air, and wildlife activity galore. Whether your passion is hiking, hunting, fishing, birding, or just taking in the scenery, a few common sense safety reminders will add to your enjoyment during a day in the field.

  • Know your limits. Don't take off on a long hike, hunt, or bike ride if you're not physically ready.

  • Always tell someone where you're going and when you expect to return.

  • Watch the weather. New England weather is notorious changeable. Be ready with extra clothing.

  • Expect the unexpected. Carrying a fanny pack with a few first aid items, matches, water, pocket knife, cell phone, map, compass, whistle, extra food, and flashlight can help prevent small problems from becoming big ones.

  • Wear blaze orange for visibility. Whether you're a hunter, hiker, birder or dog walker in rural areas, it's a good idea to wear a cap or vest of highly visible blaze orange clothing while you're enjoying the great outdoors.

  • Respect the water. Canoeists and kayakers are required to wear life jackets from September 15 to May 15, but all water enthusiasts, especially anglers who wade in larger rivers, would be wise to wear floatation devices now that water and air temperatures are cooling.

  • Respect other outdoor users. Mountain biking, horseback riding, wildlife watching, hunting, and hiking need not be and are not mutually exclusive activities. Know the hunting seasons and who is likely to be sharing the woods and waters with you. Keep dogs under direct control and respect other outdoor users' rights to enjoy our open spaces.

  • Finally, licensed hunters are reminded to take the basics of hunter safety to heart. Treat every firearm as it were loaded, keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction at all times. Positively identify your target and what lies beyond it.

For other wildlife and outdoor safety information and tips, visit the DFW Outdoor Safety web page at www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/safety/recreation_safety.htm.

 

DRIVERS, BRAKE FOR MOOSE AND DEER THIS FALL!

 

Because fall is the breeding season for both moose and white-tailed deer, the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) reminds motorists to be mindful of increased deer and moose activity, especially during early morning and evening hours. September and October is the peak of the breeding season for Massachusetts' small but expanding moose population in central and western Massachusetts. The breeding season (also known as "the rut") for white-tailed deer closely follows the moose breeding season from late October through early December. Because moose have no natural predators in Massachusetts and are protected by law from hunting, these large (500-1,000 lbs) members of the deer family are unconcerned as they move through populated areas. During the mating season this indifference is magnified by the "tunnel-vision" created by the urge to reproduce.

 

Be aware and heed "Moose and Deer Crossing" signs erected by highway departments. Motorists are advised to slow down and drive defensively should a moose or deer be spotted on or by the road. Moose are less likely to move from the road than deer; braking for moose is your best policy! Police and other departments involved in moose or deer/car collisions are reminded that while drivers are allowed by law to keep white-tailed deer they have hit, only the DFW or the Environmental Police can make decisions regarding the disposition of moose involved in vehicle collisions. All moose or deer/vehicle collisions should be reported to the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife District offices. The Environmental Police Radio Room can be reached at 1-800-632-8075.

Robert A. Regan Named Urban College PresidentEntrepreneurial, Visionary Educator/Executive To Lead

Non-traditional College Serving Low-income Boston-area StudentsThe Board of Trustees of the Urban College of Boston has appointed Robert A. Regan, former President & CEO of  New England College of Finance, as President of Urban College of Boston. UCB is the unique, non-traditional college recognized worldwide for its success in providing educational and professional opportunities for diverse and under-represented individuals in our community.

Regan’s decades-long track record building innovative educational institutions and creating access to higher education for under-served students make him a natural for Urban College. He is recognized as an award-winning, visionary leader with a lengthy history of entrepreneurial accomplishments and a passionate commitment to inner-city families and students.

Under his 21-year leadership, New England College of Finance grew from a local training institute, primarily for banks, to a global provider of undergraduate and graduate programs for all segments of the financial services industry. During Regan’s tenure, enrollments at NECF grew from1,500 to more than 10,000 annually. In addition, win-win strategic alliances were formed with prominent colleges, universities and major trade associations in the U.S and abroad, enabling access to industry-focused degree programs online and on-ground.

Since leaving NECF in 2006, he has held several high-profile positions administering creative, cutting-edge education initiatives that enhance higher education access and success for at-risk students. In 2006, he was selected for membership in The Registry for College and University Presidents. 

“Urban College is very fortunate to have Bob Regan’s leadership as we move into a challenging decade calling for creative program development and fundraising for the college,” said Peter L. Ebb, Esq., Chair, Urban College Board of Trustees and Partner, Ropes & Gray. “Increasing numbers of students from low-income backgrounds are turning to Urban College for the educational and career development opportunities that will give them a footing in this unstable economy. We need to meet their needs. Bob has a track record as a visionary, committed leader growing mission-critical programs and raising sustainable funds.”

Regan said he feels privileged to have this opportunity to make a difference. “The mission of the Urban College has never been more vital or urgent,” he said. I am honored and thrilled to serve as president of this storied institution, and am confident its best  days are yet to come.”

Creating opportunities for at-risk students

After his 21-year presidency at New England College of Finance, Regan founded the innovative Office of College & Career Connections in the Boston Public Schools and led that initiative until 2008. In that position, he engaged the corporate and higher education communities in creating college-ready and career-ready pathways for urban youth and raised all necessary funds to support those initiatives.

He also held the position of Director, Corporate & School Relations, at Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies, creating the new Center for Career & Industry Initiatives to provide college access for under-represented populations while addressing unmet workforce development needs. He created the exceptional new first year of college program for Boston Public School graduates called Foundation Year at Northeastern.

In addition, Regan created and served as Executive Director of the Institutional Advancement Office at Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies, aligning strategies and resources of existing functions including Annual Giving; Major Gifts; Corporate, Community & Foundation Relations; Co-operative Education and Experiential Learning; and Alumni Relations.

Regan is a former member of the editorial board for Banker & Tradesman, a founding trustee and board chair of the Dorchester Collegiate Academy, an inner-city charter school for grades 4-8, and former member of Mayor Menino’s College Success Task Force.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Economics from University of Massachusetts Boston, a Master’s degree in English from the University of New Hampshire, and attended Columbia University Graduate School of Business, the Breadloaf Writer’s Conference at Middlebury College and Harvard University Graduate School of Education

Regan replaces Dr. Linda Edmonds Turner who served as UCB President since 2002 and leaves an enormous legacy of contributions to the college

Local Company Helps Out

Capstone General Contracting, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with N. Riley Construction of Chicopee for an upcoming episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

Sunday, September 11 was the “door knock” date for the Walker family of Springfield who lost their 11-year-old son Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover in 2009 to suicide after constant bullying at school.
http://www.joinextreme.com/massfamily

“Capstone and our team of volunteers are looking forward to working with N.Riley to build a new home for the Walker family,” said Capstone CEO Charbel Najem. “It’s shows like Extreme Makeover that demonstrate what is possible when people work together for a great cause.”

The Emmy award winning reality program “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” entering its 9th season, is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It’s executive-produced by Brady Connell and George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. Episodes air Sunday from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.

Founded in 2008, Capstone General Contracting specializes in fire restoration, new additions, bathroom renovation, remodeling and new home construction.

Capstone General Contracting and their participation last week on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in Springfield.

 

Based in Worcester (with an additional new office in Northboro), Capstone is a locally owned firm that specializes in fire restoration, new additions, bathroom renovation, remodeling and new home construction http://www.gccapstone.com/.

 

The producers of Extreme Makeover contacted Capstone to assist in the building of a new home for the Walker family. With the call to action, owners Charbel and Christine Najem didn’t just assist with a couple of dozen volunteers, but secured over 100 volunteer tradesmen to build a new home in one week. Giving back to communities and families in need is one of Capstone’s hallmarks and wonderfully deserving of coverage.

 STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY:  New sunspot 1302 is crackling with strong solar flares.  This morning it unleashed an X2-class flare--its second X-flare in two days--quickly followed by an M7-class eruption.  So far the blasts have not been Earth-directed, but this could change in the days ahead as the sunspot turns toward our planet.  The sunspot is growing and there is no sign that it will quiet down soon.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for movies and updates.
 
 DON'T MISS THE NEXT FLARE: Would you like a call when X-flares are in progress? Realtime solar activity alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).
