Rev. Fr. John Francis Burke John Francis Burke, the only child of Patrick and Nora (Kilcoyne) Burke, was born on September 15, 1929 in Clinton, Massachusetts. John was educated at St. John's Elementary School and Clinton High School As an altar server, he became attracted to the liturgy of the Church and began considering a vocation to the Priesthood. John attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester for two years and then transferred to the Seminaire de Philosophie and The Grande Seminaire in Montreal. Fr. Burke was ordained a priest by then Bishop John Wright on May 19, 1955.

Fr. Burke served as associate pastor at St. Ann, Southboro; Our Lady of the Rosary, Spencer; Sacred Heart and St. Bernard in Worcester; and Our Lady of the Lake in the Whalom district of Leominster. He also ministered in St. Andrew, Immaculate Conception and St. Peter Parish, all in Worcester. From 1960 to 1968 he served as Newman Chaplain at Clark University.

In 1970, Fr Burke was named pastor and rector of St. Paul's Cathedral in Worcester. For nine years his ministry there touched the poor, the elderly and the homeless of the inner city. There, with a dedicated staff of priests and sisters, he worked hard to bring the Church's ministry to those caught in a cycle of poverty, and addiction. During this time he was the first chairman of the Downtown Clergy Association and encouraged the newly created Diocesan Ministry to the Latino Community which was headquartered at St. Paul's rectory.

His appointment as pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel, West Boylston, in November, 1978, was a dramatic change in his life. From a staff of four associate priests and six women religious at the Cathedral, he found himself in a suburban parish of two priests. Always confident of his faith, he was overwhelmed when the parishioners responded so generously to his ministry among them.

Fr. John holds the distinction of being the first chairman of the Diocesan Ecumenical Commission and was the first chairman of the Massachusetts Commission on Christian Unity. He also served the Diocesan Senate of Priests and as the first secretary and steering committee member of the New England Consultation of Church Leaders. He was also the recipient in 2000 of the first John XXIII Ecumenical medal. Fr. John was a dynamic preacher of the Word of God and a counselor and friend to numerous clergy.

In his twenty six years as Pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel, he touched the lives of thousands of people by his wisdom, knowledge of scripture and lively wit. Since his retirement in 2004, he has assisted at many parishes in the Diocese.

He will be dearly missed by his cousins, the Trainor, Grady, Potts, Donnelley, Potter, Donovan and Sincuk families, as well as his many friends. A special word of gratitude to Sister Mary Ann Bartell, CSE, for the great care and kindness she showed to Fr. John over the past few years. Thank you as well to the staff of Life Care Center of Auburn for their professional and caring treatment of Fr. John.

Fr. Burke's funeral will take place on Tuesday, November 8 at 11:00 AM in Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, 111 Worcester St., West Boylston, with interment to follow at St. John's Cemetery in Lancaster. Calling hours will be from 4 to 7 PM on Monday evening, November 7 in Our Lady of Good Counsel Church with a vigil service at 7:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Fr. Burke's name to the Clergy Benefit Plan, 49 Elm St. Worcester, MA 01609.

Arrangements in the care of Fay Brothers Funeral Home, 1 West Boylston, West Boylston.

MEMA Will Coordinate Commonwealth’s EAS Test Effort

FRAMINGHAM, MA - The United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be conducting the first-ever national test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) on Wednesday November 9th at 2:00 p.m. EST.

The EAS is a national alert and warning system established to enable the President of the United States to address the American public during emergencies. The National Weather Service, governors, and state and local officials also utilize parts of the system to issue more localized emergency alerts.

The purpose of the test is to determine the reliability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers nationally and regionally.  Similar to the frequently conducted statewide EAS tests, the nationwide test will involve broadcast radio and television services, cable television, satellite radio and television services and wireline video service providers across all states and the territories of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa.

On November 9th, the public will hear a message indicating, “This is a test.” The audio message will be the same for all EAS participants, however, due to the limitations in the EAS the video test message scroll may not be the same or indicate that “This is a test.” The text at the top of the screen may indicate that an “Emergency Alert Notification has been issued.”  This notification is used to disseminate a national alert and in this case, the test.  In addition, the background image that appears on video screens during an alert may indicate that “This is a test,” but in some instances there might not be an image at all. The test is expected to last approximately 30-60 seconds.

Through the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), the Commonwealth has the capability of alerting the public through the EAS system.  MEMA serves as the state coordinating agency for disseminating local, regional and state initiated emergency alerts via the EAS.  MEMA, in consultation with the Governor’s Office, used the EAS to provide emergency messages to the public as recently as June 1, 2011 when tornadoes hit areas of the state, and as Tropical Storm Irene impacted the state in late August.

MEMA, from its Communication Center, will coordinate with key state public safety partners on November 9th to also test the Commonwealth’s redundant systems for pushing emergency messages to local and state public officials, including police, fire, emergency management and public health.  MEMA coordinates a system that includes VHF, UHF and 800 MHz radio communications that link all municipalities; text, email and cellular phone alerting systems for public safety, public health and municipal officials; dedicated direct phone lines with regional fire control centers; and links to law enforcement through the Criminal Justice information System (CJIS). 

This event should also serve as a reminder for all citizens to make an emergency preparedness kit for their family and business, develop a strong emergency plan and become better informed about the natural and technological threats to their community.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is the state agency responsible for coordinating federal, state, local, voluntary and private resources during emergencies and disasters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MEMA provides leadership to: develop plans for effective response to all hazards, disasters or threats; train emergency personnel to protect the public; provide information to the citizenry; and assist individuals, families, businesses and communities to mitigate against, prepare for, and respond to and recover from emergencies, both natural and man made. For additional information about MEMA and Flooding Issues, go to www.mass.gov/mema. Also, follow MEMA updates on Facebook and Twitter.

National Alzheimer's Input Report Released

Today, the Alzheimer's Association held a briefing on Capitol Hill releasing a groundbreaking new report that shows the depth and breadth of the Alzheimer's crisis in America.

This new report, titled Alzheimer's from the Frontlines: Challenges a National Alzheimer's Plan Must Address, offers the insights of people living with the disease, their caregivers, relatives and other stakeholders from across the country who participated in the Alzheimer's Association's public input process.

You played an integral role in this process by helping us pass the National Alzheimer's Project Act and by giving us valuable input along the way. We now want you to download your own personal copy of the report from www.alz.org/napa and use it to help spread awareness about what our nation needs to do to combat Alzheimer's disease, and to advocate for those advances.

From July to October 2011, the Alzheimer's Association gathered public input through online submissions, a national Telephone Town Hall and 132 public input sessions throughout the country.

CHAIN SAW SAFETY TIPS

view detailsAs homeowners begin the clean-up and recovery from the October 29-30 Nor’easter, it is important to understand what you are doing if you are going to safely use a chainsaw. Operating a chain saw is inherently hazardous. As downed trees and debris are being removed, potential injuries can be minimized by using proper personal protective equipment and safe operating procedures.

Before Starting a Chain Saw

·         Read the instruction manual that came with your saw. Your manual describes how to mount the guide and chain, how to mix the fuel and lubricate the saw, and how to start it.

·         Check controls, chain tension, and all bolts and handles to ensure that they are functioning properly and that they are adjusted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

·         Make sure that the chain is always sharp and the lubrication reservoir is full.

·         Start the saw on the ground or on another firm support. Drop starting is never allowed.

·         Start the saw at least 10 feet from the fueling area, with the chain’s brake engaged.

Fueling a Chain Saw

·         Use approved containers for transporting fuel to the saw.

·         Dispense fuel at least 10 feet away from any sources of ignition when performing construction activities. No smoking during fueling.

·         Use a funnel or a flexible hose when pouring fuel into the saw.

·         Never attempt to fuel a running or HOT saw.

Chain Saw Safety

·         Clear away dirt, debris, small tree limbs and rocks from the saw’s chain path. Look for nails, spikes or other metal in the tree before cutting.

·         Shut off the saw or engage its chain brake when carrying the saw on rough or uneven terrain.

·         Keep your hands on the saw’s handles, and maintain secure footing while operating the saw.

·         Proper personal protective equipment must be worn when operating the saw, which includes hand, foot, leg, eye, face, hearing and head protection.

·         Do not wear loose-fitting clothing.

·         Be careful that the trunk or tree limbs will not bind against the saw.

·         Watch for branches under tension, they may spring out when cut.

·         Gasoline-powered chain saws must be equipped with a protective device that minimizes chain saw kickback.

·         Be cautious of saw kick-back. To avoid kick-back, do not saw with the tip. If equipped, keep tip guard in place.

Space Weather News for Nov. 7, 2011
http://spaceweather.com


ASTEROID FLYBY: NASA radars are monitoring 2005 YU55, an asteroid the size of an aircraft carrier, as it heads for a Nov. 8th flyby of the Earth-Moon system. There is no danger to our planet. At closest approach on Tuesday at 3:28 pm PST (23:28 UT), the space rock will be 324,600 kilometers away. Nevertheless, professional astronomers are eagerly anticipating the flyby as the asteroid presents an exceptionally strong radar target.  Even amateur astronomers might be able to photograph it during the hours around closest approach.  Check
http://spaceweather.com for observing tips and more information.

OWN YOUR OWN SPACE ROCK: They came from outer space--and you can have one. Genuine meteorites are now on sale in the Space Weather Store:

LIFE OUTDOORS, Wolbach Farm, Sudbury                                              Thursday, November 10, 7:00-8:30pm

Speaker:  Scientist and Maynard Beacon-Villager Columnist David Mark

David’s new book, “Life Outdoors” is a fact-populated collection of nearly fifty essays gathered into twelve theme-linked chapters.  It mixes local history, observations on nature, and outdoor recreational and exploration activities to anyone willing to get away from too much time looking at screens and not enough time spent seeing, hearing, touching, and smelling the life going on outside.  History starts with eighteenth century stone walls, then carries forward to twenty-first century river clean-ups and farmers’ markets.  Nature spans skunks to skunk cabbage, deer to deer ticks, and birds to bird food.  Essays on recreational sports range from describing the feel of snow shoeing to how to avoid overhydrating – the deadly opposite of dehydrating.  Advanced registration preferred. Members: Free, Non-Members: $10  

For additional information and registration, visit www.svtweb.org or call 978-443-5588.
