On March 29,
2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people
around the world in making a statement about
climate change by turning off your lights for
Earth Hour, an event created by the
World Wildlife Fund.
Earth Hour was
created by WWF in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and
in one year has grown from an event in one city
to a global movement. In 2008, millions of
people, businesses, governments and civic
organizations in nearly 200 cities around the
globe will turn out for Earth Hour. More than
100 cities across North America will
participate, including the US flagships–Atlanta,
Chicago, Phoenix and San Francisco and
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
View cities involved around the world.
We invite everyone
throughout North America and around the world to
turn off the lights for an hour starting at 8
p.m. (your own local time)–whether at home or at
work, with friends and family or solo, in a big
city or a small town.
What will you do
when the lights are off?
We have lots of ideas.
Join people all
around the world in showing that you care about
our planet and want to play a part in helping to
fight climate change. Don’t forget to sign up
and let us know you want to join Earth Hour.
One hour, America.

Warren S. Earhart
EARHART Warren S. Earhart, 90, of
Southbororugh, MA and formerly of Ironton, passed away peacefully on
March 27, 2008. He was the husband of Lois (Johnson) Earhart of
Southborough for the past 62 years. Born in Columbus, the youngest
child of Robert and Darlene (Scofield) Earhart. A graduate of Ohio
State University School of Law, class of 1939, he went into the FBI
and was stationed in North Carolina and New York City. It was while
stationed in New York that he met his beloved Lois. Later he served
in the US Army JAG Corps during World War II and was in the European
Theater of Operations. After his tour of duty he married the love of
his life, shortly there after they moved to Ironton, where he served
as Common Pleas Judge of Lawrence County for 20 years. From his
experiences on the bench, he amassed a vast store of funny stories
about human nature that he loved to share with others. Judge Earhart
continued in public service to the people of Ohio after finishing
his time as judge, and he received recognition from the Ohio
legislature for his over 50 years of service to the state. Among his
many awards, he was proud to have been appointed a Kentucky Colonel.
In 1992 he and his wife moved to Southborough. He will be remembered
for many reasons, but certainly his integrity, kindness, his love of
his family, his faith in Christ, his passionate political opinions,
and his avid support of Ohio State football are high on the list of
reasons. He will be dearly missed by his family and those whose
lives he has touched. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his
children, John Earhart of Fairfax, VT, Ralph Earhart and his wife,
Susan of Charleston, SC, Marty Coleman and her husband, Ross of
Southborough, MA, Mark Earhart and his wife, Wendi of Fredericktown,
Nancy Smith and her husband, Rick of Hilliard; 11 grandchildren; 8
great-grandchildren; and a number of nieces and nephews. There are
no visiting hours. A memorial service will be held Saturday, March
29, at Trinity Church, 14 Wattaquadock Hill Rd., Bolton, MA at 11
a.m. In lieu of flowers, Warren would have wanted contributions to

ALGONQUIN ATHLETIC BOOSTERS’ CLUB HOSTS FOURTH
ANNUAL FACULTY-STUDENT BASKETBALL GAME
The Algonquin Athletic Boosters’ Club will host
the Fourth Annual Faculty-Student Basketball Game on March 27, 2008. The
game, which is the Boosters’ major fundraiser, will take place in the
Algonquin Gym at 6:30 PM. All proceeds from the event help support the
Algonquin Athletic Programs.
“The Athletic Department at Algonquin greatly
appreciates the support it receives from the Booster Club, not only in terms
of the funds raised, but also the ‘spirit’ within the community” states Fran
Whitten, the Algonquin Athletic Director. “The Booster Club enables coaches
to pursue professional development opportunities, supplements the athletics’
budget by purchasing training equipment for the weight room and always
serves as a wonderful fan base at athletic contests” continued Whitten.
Boys and Girls Varsity players will be coached
by Whitten and will play against faculty members representing various skill
levels and academic disciplines. “I feel it is important to participate as
it gives me an opportunity to showcase my mad skills”, joked English teacher
and Boys’ Varsity Soccer coach, John Frederick. “Although I am a teacher and
a coach, I still have the ability to dominate both the male and female
student athletes at ARHS in any sport, never mind a sport that I dominated
when I was a student here” quipped Frederick. Faculty player and Lower
School Assistant Principal Paul DiDomenico plays for a different reason.
“Students love to see teachers step out of the normal routine in order to
have fun. In this case, no only do we have fun, but we promote Tomahawk
pride and benefit the Boosters, an organization that works tirelessly on
behalf of our students. It is a pleasure working at a school that has such
an active spirit and giving community.”
The night is filled with other special events.
Three Algonquin teams, the 2007 Boys’ Baseball Team and the 2007 Boys’
Lacrosse Team will be honored at half-time for their league and post-season
performances as well as the 2007 District League Champion Girls’ Spring
Track Team. The Gymnastics’ Team will perform routines and wonderful gift
baskets donated by the various athletic teams will be raffled off. A 50/50
Raffle for a cash prize will round out the evening’s fundraising efforts.
“We hope to exceed last year’s total of $4,800”
says Booster President, Alice Edman. “It’s a fun night for everyone—the
teachers really “get into it” with faculty teachers cheering, trash talking
and playing as if they were still students themselves. The students enjoy
playing against their teachers and the crowd cheers for both teams. We want
to thank additional sponsors such as Polar Beverages, TeamWorks and the new
Pantry Gourmet for their generous support.”
Tickets are $2.00 for students with a student
ID and $5 for adults. ARHS students who attend are eligible to enter a free
drawing for some great prizes.
“I look forward to the competition, although, I
doubt it will be much of one,” says the ever competitive Frederick. Wanting
to get the last word, Whitten replied, “I am looking forward to coaching the
students’ team and shutting down the so called dominant Mr. Frederick!”
All are welcome to come to the game, root for
the students or the staff and support a worthwhile cause.
Spelling Bee Nets Over $12,000 to Community Schools
March 27, 2008 - (contributed photos by Tony
Martins) People are still abuzz about the recent Southborough Education
Foundation’s Spelling Bee -- and for good reason. It took over 40 words such
as “pharmacopoeia” and “septuagenarian” for a team of Trottier school
teachers and administrators to claim the title over seventeen other
Southborough squads. Linda Murdock, Darlene Scorzelli and Kim Barton of the
“Trottier Rambunctions” held off the tough competition of parents, town
officials, local businesses, and students, successfully capturing the crown
by spelling “objurgate”. Besides each team member bringing home a Bose Wave
Radio, they will also have their names put on a spelling bee plaque that
will be displayed at the Southborough Library.
The Trottier team prevailed over three other
teams in the finals: The Ides of March (from Woodward), Spellbound, and the
Rotary Club. Winners of the Team Spirit award went to the Finn Credibles,
who entertained the kids in the crowd with their superhero antics. Winners
of the Best Costume award went to the Woodwords team, who were cleverly
dressed as scrabble boards with matching earrings made of game pieces.
The contestants were not the only winners at
the event. Spectators were entertained by the Master of Ceremonies Bruce
Werner and by the teams themselves. While some of the younger spectators
cheered for their favorite teams, others tried their hand at spelling the
words themselves with cards and pencils that had been provided. A variety of
raffle prizes such as signed Red Sox baseballs, a Bose Wave Radio, and gift
certificates to Tomasso Trattoria, Panzano Market and the spa A Beautiful
You also made winners out of people who were not on stage.
big winners for the night, however, were all the Southborough schools as the
Southborough Education Foundation (SEF) raised over $12,000 with the fun,
educational event. All the money goes directly to support innovative
educational programs for Southborough students through grants that are
awarded each spring. Past programs supported by SEF include Exploring Our
World through Music (Finn), WaNNa Walk and Weather Watchers (Woodward),
Literacy Centers (Woodward and Neary), Mobile Publishing Centers (Neary);
Worms are Wonderful composting center, 8th Grade Electives, and RM Math
(Trottier), and Health Fair (Algonquin). Last year, SEF contributed over
$20,000 to these and other programs. SEF is presently accepting proposals
for this year’s grants and will make announcements of winners in June.
The Spelling Bee, which SEF plans to make an
annual event, was made possible by the support of many local businesses.
Overall sponsors were The Capital Group and the Crossings at Whites Corner.
Team sponsors included Boston Private Bank, Eaton Apothecary, F.W. Webb,
Mockingbird Partners LLC, Pandetix LLC, SCS Financial, The Fusion Group, and
Wellen Construction. Other business donors included Domino’s Pizza, the Bose
Corporation, The Boston Red Sox, Heisler & Mattson Properties, Marlborough
Savings Bank, Southborough Jewelers, Polar Beverages, Roche Brothers and
BJ’s Wholesale Club.
Accepting the responsibility of judging were
long time Southborough resident Donna McDaniel from the Northborough
Southborough Villager, Ken Powers from the Community Advocate, and Dr.
Charles Gobron, the Superintendent of Northborough Southborough Schools.
The Southborough Education Foundation and both
the contestants and spectators look forward to conducting the Spelling Bee
again next year.
27, 2008 - At this week’s Board of Selectmen’s meeting Selectmen heard from
the last Conservation Commission candidate, Karen Muggeridge. She was asked
the same questions as the other three candidates were asked at the previous
meeting. However, due to concerns of Ms Muggeridge’s dealings with previous
Conservation Commission hearings pertaining to developments in her
neighborhood and future developments by one of the same developers,
Selectmen had concerns of placing her on the current board. All three
selectmen then appointed John Maciolek to the Conservation Commission citing
his prior strong experience with Conservation Commissions. All candidates
were encouraged to entertain the idea of sitting on one of the other
committees that have openings such as Open Space, Storm Water Committee and
the Community Preservation Committee. As of Tuesday’s meeting those
candidates in attendance had declined the offer.
The Planning Board and the Board of Selectmen
than moved into a joint meeting to hear from DPW Superintendent Karen
Galligan, SEA representatives and Town Engineer John Woodsmall discuss
changes made to the Main Street Reconstruction Project. Several residents
and business owners had met for several hours on March 20th at
the DPW building to discuss the implications of the project and hammer out
alternatives. The result is what is being called the Alternate number four
plan. Under this plan there will be some available parking for the Morris
Funeral Home and the Stone business. There will be a six foot shoulder east
of the route 85/30 intersection. There will be no parking across from the
public safety facility. There will be replanting of trees for the “avenue of
trees” and new bumpouts and crosswalks. The left hand turn lanes have been
shortened to stack only three vehicles at a time. Raymond Hokinson a
resident of Main Street whose property will be affected questioned the
daytime meeting before the Easter Holiday for input on the plan at the 11th
hour. He could not make that meeting but had been involved in the Main
Street Reconstruction projects that have come up since 2004. After all
presentations and questions from the audience both the Board of Selectmen
and the Planning Board voted to move the project on to the MA Highway for
David Parry who has worked tirelessly on this
project on behalf of Main Street residents then presented the proposed
warrant article to seek funds for a feasibility study of putting the
utilities underground when the Main Street Project begins (estimated time
frame 2012). Mr. Parry introduced Tim McHugh who will be leading this
project. The objectives would be to remove all overhead utilities and place
them underground during the construction phase while the road is opened to a
good depth of 18” to do this. The area that is proposed would begin at East
Main, Newton Street and Boston Road and the western end will be at the
proposed main entrance to Fay School near the admissions building. The idea
of the warrant article would be to study the feasibility of putting the
utilities underground, then if found it is feasible go for a design and look
for funding methods to fund the entire project either by grants, town
expense or asking for donations. An affirmative vote was taken to support
putting the article on the warrant.

Letter to the Editor
We Must Do A Better Job Protecting Our Water
You may have found the recent articles about
pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan
areas throughout the United States disturbing or shocking and wondered how
safe your water is. The major way for drugs to get into our drinking water
is from wastewater flowing into the source. While the watersheds of the
reservoirs supplying the MWRA communities are not impacted by wastewater
treatment plant discharges, little is really known about smaller municipal
systems with local wells. The findings of the various pharmaceuticals being
in the range of parts-per-billion are not believed to be harmful to humans
while fish and wildlife are already showing adverse effects from drug
contamination in the waterways.
The region of the Upper Sudbury River, whose
waters eventually flow through a number of towns, has remained free of
effluent discharges from wastewater treatment plants. This may change over
the next few years if appeals of the permits issued by the Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) to the Town of Hopkinton fail and the
wastewater treatment plant is built on the edge of the Whitehall Brook,
which is classified as an Outstanding Resource Water of the Commonwealth,
and is a tributary to the Sudbury River. The Massachusetts DEP has
technically classified the treatment plant as a ground discharge facility
although the discharge will be less than 200 feet from the brook. Ironically
DEP funded studies done by the Unites States Geological Survey, which
describe the problems caused by siting ground discharge treatment plants
near water bodies while also pointing to the cost-benefits from properly
locating these facilities on more distant uplands reducing the costs of
With more than 70% of the state’s waters
impaired by some form of pollution properly sited and monitored ground
discharge facilities could help improve the quality of the state’s surface
waters. This benefit remains questionable however with the existing level of
oversight provided by the Department of Environmental Protection. The most
recent DEP statistics show that in 2007 47.8% of the permitted ground
discharge facilities in the state were in non-compliance with the terms of
their permits. Allowed to continue, this lack of historical regulatory
enforcement combined with a permit approval process managed with the goal to
eliminate public input, the potential benefit of ground discharge treatment
plants will be lost.
Why is this important?
Permits designed to protect public health and the environment are only
effective if the permittee complies with the limits imposed. Maintaining
compliance with these permits helps assure that drinking water and surface
waters are protected from pollution. Source-DEP website
Please join the Cedar Swamp Conservation Trust
and the Sudbury River Watershed Organization in urging DEP Commissioner
Laurie Burt to prioritize the implementation of the appropriate regulations
and procedures to correct these recurring agency problems and ensure the
protection of the Commonwealth’s water supplies.

State and Local Police Team Up to Reduce Aggressive and Distracted Driving
The Massachusetts State Police and local police
joined together today at the Natick District Court to raise awareness about
the dangers of aggressive and distracted driving. The event kicked-off the
Commonwealth’s 2008 “Road Respect” Mobilization, a statewide
coordinated effort involving additional directed traffic enforcement and
public information that runs through April 16, 2008.
“Reducing the level of aggressive and
distracted driving will keep our roadways safer,” said Massachusetts State
Police Colonel Mark Delaney. “We ask all drivers in Massachusetts to take a
moment to reflect on their own driving behavior, then work to improve on it
all year-long to help make the roadways of Massachusetts safer and less
stressful for everyone.”
The Executive Office of Public Safety and
Security is providing $1.2 million of federal grant funds for the Road
Registrar Anne Collins stated, “The Registry of
Motor Vehicles is happy to be part of the Road Respect team that is working
to save even more lives. The data is clear, to save lives we need drivers to
slow down and wear their seatbelts. These are not complicated solutions,
they do not require long term financing and high tech solutions. They
just require respect.”
James Butcher, an assistant chief probation
officer in Westborough District Court, spoke to attendees about how
aggressive driving ended the life of his 18-year-old daughter Courtney. She
was killed while riding as a passenger in a speed-related crash in Leicester
in the spring of 2007.
