Work Crew

Important Meeting for Southborough Residents Coming Up

Should the Town of Southborough have a Town Manager and a five person Board of Selectmen?  On Monday, October 24 the Drafting Committee for Town Manager Legislation is inviting all Town Officials, Town Employees and residents to a forum at Cordaville Hall at 7 pm.  The Forum will feature Shrewsbury’s Town Manager Daniel J. Morgado and a member of Shrewsbury’s five person Board of Selectmen.  The Town Manager/5 person Board of Selectmen has been in place in Shrewsbury since 1953.  Dan Morgado is a graduate of Bridgewater State College and holds a Masters of Public Administration from Clark University.  He has been the Town Manager of Shrewsbury since 1997.   Prior to 1997, he served as Town Administrator in the Towns of Easton and Blackstone.   For several years, Mr. Morgado has been an instructor in the Clark University MPA Program specializing in the area of Policy Analysis and Local Government Management.  Southborough’s Town Administrator Jean Kitchen and Southborough’s three person Board of Selectmen have also been invited.

 

What are the strengths and weaknesses of this proposed form of government?  Will it improve the efficiency of delivering services?  Will it make the government more or less transparent?  Will it facilitate the budget process?  Will it entice more folks to run for office, volunteer for a committee?  Our guests will attempt to answers these and any other questions that those attending might pose.  

 

BOSTON, MA (October 11, 2011)… On Sunday, September 11, 2011, a team of employees, friends, family from the Boston office of Murtha Cullina LLP, along with their pets, participated in the 2011 MSPCA-Angell Walk for Animals on Boston Common.  Team Murtha was the number one corporate sponsor of the Boston MSPCA Walk for Animals, raising over $4,000 in monetary and in-kind donations.

 

Over the summer, the Firm organized fundraising efforts above and beyond walker registrations and sponsorships which included individual donations, firm-wide in-kind donations of shelter supplies, bake sales, a pet picture contest, and more.

 

“The rate of participation in the Boston office was extraordinary and a testament to the remarkable community spirit we are lucky to have,” said associate Lauren MacLellan, Team Captain and active member of the MSPCA. “Thanks to our Community Service Committee and to everyone who baked, cleaned closets, hauled blankets, contributed and walked.”

National Grid to Hold Meeting

 

The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) today announced it will conduct a series of eight public meetings to gather public comments on storm preparation and power restoration efforts by two of the state’s investor-owned electric utilities in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, which made landfall on August 28, 2011.

The DPU will hold four meetings in each company’s service territory and will collect written public comment until 5 p.m. on November 23, 2011. The DPU is holding hearings in the hardest hit regions of each company’s service territory and encourages customers to attend any of the four meetings as well as submit written comments.

The DPU is reviewing each company’s 30-day post-storm report, which was due on October 3. In response to customer and municipal concerns, the DPU also opened investigations on September 15 into National Grid and NSTAR’s storm response focusing on the companies’ efforts to restore electric power, including their communications with affected communities. The investigations will determine whether the companies complied with DPU regulations and fully implemented their Emergency Response Plans, which were last filed in May 2011.

The DPU’s investigations are focused on compliance with DPU’s performance standards for emergency preparation and restoration of service, including: (1) preparation for and management of the restoration efforts with respect to Tropical Storm Irene; (2) allocation of company resources in the affected communities; (3) communications with state, local municipal and public safety officials, and with the department; (4) dissemination of timely information to the public; and (5) identification of company practices requiring improvement, if any.

*Armed Robbery*
On Thursday 10/13/11 at approximately 2011 hrs, the owner of Southborough Auto Body at 355 Turnpike Road, Southborough, reported to police that he was robbed at gunpoint by two black males. One of the suspects was alleged to have shown a small, black handgun, and demanded money from the owner of the business. An undisclosed amount of money was taken, and the two suspects fled the area on foot.  Massachusetts State Police and Westborough Police officers assisted Southborough police in attempting to locate the two suspects.  It is believed that the suspects may have possibly had a vehicle waiting for them as they left the business.

 

The two suspects were described as:

Black Male: 6’1” wearing black pants, a black sweatshirt and sunglasses.

Black male: 5’7” wearing blue jean shorts and a white t-shirt.  A tattoo of a male in an electric chair with the words

 

 “Death Row” was tattooed on his left arm.  (This is the individual that displayed the firearm).  If you have any

 

information regarding this incident or these two suspects, please contact the Southborough Police Department at

508 – 485 – 2121.

The First Community Church is hosting an indoor Flea Market on Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 9am to 1pm.  There will be a variety of vendors, a baked goods table, and food available for purchase (coffee, soda, lunch items).

Get the Facts - Who Needs Flood Insurance?

 

WESTFIELD, Mass. – Destructive flooding regularly occurs throughout Massachusetts, yet only about two percent of the state’s residents and business owners have flood insurance. Some may not be purchasing insurance due to a number of myths about the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

 

“Sometimes people are given wrong information, such as their property isn’t eligible for flood

insurance when it is,” says Mark H. Landry, Federal Coordinating Officer with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.  “I urge everyone to visit www.floodsmart.gov for current information on the National Flood Insurance Program.”

 

“Flood insurance helps Massachusetts residents protect their personal assets and their families’ overall financial security in the event of floods,” said Kurt Schwartz, Director of the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).  “I urge people to educate themselves about their flood risk, flood insurance and make wise choices to protect their family’s financial health.”

Myth:  You can't buy flood insurance if you are located in a high risk flood area.

 

Fact:  You can buy flood insurance in Massachusetts through the NFIP no matter where you live, with a few exceptions, as long as your community participates in the NFIP.  The NFIP is a voluntary program and not all communities choose to participate. 

 

Myth:  You can't buy flood insurance immediately before or during a flood.

 

Fact:  You can purchase flood insurance at any time. There is, however, a 30-day waiting period after you've applied and paid the premium before the policy is effective. 

 

Myth:  Flood insurance is not available to renters.

 

Fact:  Flood insurance can provide up to $100,000 of coverage for the contents of any residential building; this includes the contents of a renter’s apartment or home. 

 

Myth:  You can't buy flood insurance if your property has been flooded.

 

Fact:  It doesn't matter if your home, apartment or business has flooded. You may still be eligible to purchase flood insurance for property in Massachusetts except in a non-participating community.

 

Myth: Homeowners insurance will pay to repair and replace property that is damaged by flooding.

 

Fact:  Unfortunately, many homeowners do not find out until it is too late that their standard homeowners policy does not cover damage due to rising or standing water from flooding.

 

Myth:  Only residents of high risk flood zones need to insure their property.

 

Fact:  More than 20 percent of claims are made from areas outside of mapped high risk flood zones.  Even if you live in an area which is not flood-prone, it's advisable to have flood insurance. 

 

Flooding can be caused by snow and ice melt, dam breach, extremely heavy rain fall or a hurricane. The NFIP’s Preferred Risk Policy, available for about $400 a year for full coverage, is designed for residential properties located in low-to-moderate flood risk zones.

 

Myth: Federal disaster assistance will pay for flood damage.

 

Fact:  Before a community is eligible for disaster assistance, it must receive a federal disaster declaration. Declarations occur in less than 50 percent of flooding incidents.  Even if federal disaster assistance is available, not everyone is eligible; when FEMA assistance is available, the amount may be less than needed to complete repairs and replace property. 

 

The annual premium on an NFIP insurance policy will generally be far less expensive than repaying a disaster loan.  Furthermore, if you are uninsured and receive federal disaster assistance after a flood, you must purchase flood insurance to be eligible for any future federal disaster aid.

 

Myth:  Flood insurance is too expensive

 

Fact:  As with any type of property insurance, the premium depends on the degree of risk for the particular property and the amount of insurance coverage needed.  To find out what your premium for flood insurance would be, go to the www.FloodSmart.gov  Web site and enter the address of your property.

 

NFIP provides a solid cushion of financial support that far outweighs assistance that may be received during a disaster declaration; NFIP assistance is applicable even without a federal disaster declaration.

Space Weather News for Oct. 14, 2011
 
http://spaceweather.com

 
 ROSAT RE-ENTRY: The ROSAT X-ray observatory, launched in 1990 by NASA and managed for years by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), will return to Earth within the next two weeks. Current best estimates place the re-entry between Oct. 22nd and 24th over an unknown part of Earth. ROSAT will produce a spectacular fireball when it re-enters, but not all of the satellite will disintegrate.  According to the DLR, heat-resistant fragments as massive as 1.7 tons could reach Earth's surface.  Check http://spaceweather.com for more information.
 
 LAST-CHANCE SIGHTINGS:  As ROSAT slowly descends it is growing brighter. During favorable passes, the satellite can now be seen shining as brightly as a first magnitude star in the night sky.  Local flyby times may be found using SpaceWeather's Satellite Tracker: http://spaceweather.com/flybys .   Or turn your smartphone into a ROSAT tracker using our Simple Flybys app: http://simpleflybys.com .

"Turtle's New Home"

 

 

A New Work by Award-Winning Puppeteer

Deborah Costine 

  

"Blanding" the turtle is on a journey in search of a new, safe wetland habitat. The little pond where she has lived for forty years is no longer safe!  A road has been built between her pond and the high sandy hill where she goes every spring to lay her eggs. Blanding knows what happens when a turtle tries to cross a road! When she meets young Castor the Beaver, who is eager to build a dam and create a new pond, she sees that her problems might be solved. We also meet her friend the Blue Spotted Salamander as well as a little boy named Edward and his nature-loving babysitter Rachel, who teaches him how to look closely at nature for signs of animals and their activities.

Hopkinton, MA - Compass Memory Support Assisted Living at Hopkinton is hosting a book signing and reading with a popular author whose book about her family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease topped the charts on Amazon.com. The public is invited to attend the event on Monday, November 7th at 2:00 pm at the Hopkinton Senior Center located at 28 Mayhew Street in Hopkinton. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by November 4th to Eric Varin, Compass at Hopkinton, 508-435-1011.

 

Susan Rava calls her book “Swimming Solo” a “support-group-in-a-book” and one reader described it as a “life­line.” Her personal story about her family’s journey through Alzheimer’s disease is grip­ping, sad and funny all at once. In the words of a geriatric physician who reviewed the book: “Swimming Solo honors and celebrates the resilience of character and the unique traits that survive over the course of the illness. Rava provides guidance regarding supportive services, the importance of family education, and caregiver respite.”

 

Eric Varin, Community Relations Director at Compass at Hopkinton, said Compass at Hopkinton is delighted to host this special event at the Hopkinton Senior Center. “We are interested in providing solid information and guidance to people in our community who are dealing with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in their family. We also want to convey the important positive message that people with dementia can continue to learn, adjust to their illness, play a role in their own care, and live meaningful lives when supported properly. We believe in this concept wholeheartedly – we see it every day in the people we care for here at Compass Memory Support and it is at the very core of the programming we offer through our affiliation with the Boston University School of Medicine’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center.”

 

 According to Susan Rava, the story of her book “Swimming Solo” begins when her elderly father-in-law set out alone, contrary to family rules, to swim straight across Lake Michigan to Milwaukee. Soon after, he was diagnosed with probable Alzheimer's disease. Susan Rava went on to describe her other family members who developed Alzheimer’s. She said, “Later my father showed me a slip of paper. It said, "D-O-R-O-T-H-Y." He said to me, ‘Your mother's name. So I don't forget it.’ He too was in the grip of Alzheimer's. Then followed both my mother-in-law and my mother. My husband, John, and I were the primary caregivers and point people over 14 years. Swimming Solo recreates all four parents in their heydays: they were colorful and productive too. It also shows their declines into Alzheimer's disease. Readers tell me that they laugh and cry.”  

 

Compass at Hopkinton’s innovative memory care approach, developed in affiliation with the Boston University School of Medicine’s Alzheimer’s Disease Center, treats the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Mild Cognitive Impairment (early memory loss) in a comfortable dignified residential setting. The community, serving the Metrowest and Worcester County area, features 40 apartments as well as sun-filled living and dining areas. Innovative programs include a curriculum-based adult learning program, specialized brain-healthy diet, and individual resident case review. The community offers a day-guest program, holistic hospital rehabilitation program, and respite stays so that family caregivers can travel for business or vacation. For tours and information call 508-435-1011.

Stack of books

The annual Friends Book Sale on Heritage Day, this Monday, October 10, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Promises books of all types at very reasonable prices. This year, the teen have taken over the cookie sale. If you are baking cookies, please try to have them delivered to the Library by Saturday at 5:00 p.m., so they can be sorted and marked up for Monday. Local authors will be at the Library on Monday, selling their works, with parts of the proceeds to benefit the Library.

Book and cookie sales are a great source of funding for the Friends of the Library who help supplement programs for people of all ages, author visits, craft nights, and our robust museum pass program. See you on Heritage Day!
