LOOK OUT FOR LOONS!

 The haunting wail of the common loon (Gavia immer) evokes a sense of wild and remote areas which may be why some people are surprised to learn Massachusetts is home to a small, but growing number of nesting loons. MassWildlife Biologist Bridgett McAlice compiled common loon nesting activity for 2007 and will be working with other cooperators this spring to document loon nesting sites across the state. In 2007, 20 territorial pairs on 8 waterbodies were documented. A total of 5 chicks were produced and presumed fledged. "The Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs are home to the majority of Massachusetts' nesting loons," said McAlice. "Other nests have been documented in relatively quiet water supplies and private ponds in Worcester County, but it's entirely possible there are nests in other parts of the state which haven't been reported to us." McAlice noted that cooperators and volunteers play a vital role in gathering field data for MassWildlife.

Project Smile Song Recorded
 

Excitement is building for the Project Smile song as it nears completion. Songwriter and vocalist Lisa Winner along with singer Krysta Youngs were hard at work this month recording the duet. The duo worked together at Lisa’s Sharon music studio to record the song.

Project Smile’s executive director, Catherine Pisacane attended the recording session. “It was a great experience watching Krysta and Lisa work so hard on our song,” said Catherine. “The first time I heard them sing our song it almost took my breath away. Not only is it a great song, it is particularly special because it is about our work. I never would have imagined five years ago- or even one year ago, that we would have a Project Smile song.”
 

    The Project Smile song will be debuted with a live performance at the organization’s 5th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 3, 2008, 6:30pm at the Sheraton Hotel, Milford, MA.

Resor Supports Funding for Mass. Family Network

BOSTON (May 29, 2008)– After being eliminated from the State Senate Budget which was released May 14th, parents and teachers flooded the State House with phone calls to support funding the Mass. Family Networks program.

“This import network provides families with young children the support they need in the early development stages,” said Sen. Pam Resor (D-Acton). “I received many heartfelt phone calls from parents about the wonderful experiences they have had through this program.”

This vital program, which provides family support services, was rescued in the budget after Sen. Susan Fargo (D-Lincoln) and Sen. Pam Resor (D-Acton), among others, supported a budget amendment to reinstate funding for the $5.4 million state wide program.

The Massachusetts Family Network program supports families with young children, prenatal through three years of age. The Family Network program provides a variety of high quality family support services and programs that are free of charge including access to family centers, home visits; child development information; health and developmental screenings; family literacy activities; and training to enhance parenting skills to enhance their children’s development.

Sen. Resor Says ‘Yes’ to Landmark Oceans Management Bill

 

Senate, House agree on protections and development plan for state waters

 

(Boston, MA) – The Senate on Thursday took final action on its landmark “oceans bill” that will allow Massachusetts to establish a management plan for its territorial waters and ensure a public voice in future ocean development projects. The House of Representatives concurred on the Senate’s action, which means the bill is headed to Governor Deval Patrick’s desk and expected to become law.

 

Senator Resor, a member of the conference committee that hammered out a compromise version of the House and Senate bills, said “It is about time that we take our ocean and shorelines as seriously as we take the protection of our other natural resources. The Commonwealth has always worked hard to protect its fishing industry and now is the time to take the next step and protect the ocean’s other important resources. This bill will establish a plan, much like a community development plan, so that we have a process to assess and regulate any proposed projects. I thank the other members of the conference committee for showing such a passionate interest in protecting our oceans.”

 

“This is a significant piece of legislation for the Commonwealth that provides safeguards for the health and oversight of our oceans and specific guidelines for development projects,” Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) said. “Just as we have well-established laws for the use of our land, it’s about time that we have a framework and process in place to protect one of the Commonwealth’s greatest assets.”

 

The compromise bill is a balanced, comprehensive piece of legislation that represents the best interests of both the Senate and the House. The highlights of the compromise bill include:

 

  • The use of an ocean management plan incorporating the best available scientific understandings of marine and ocean resources, mapping, monitoring, and other data.

 

  • Under the authority of the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, the management plan would be developed by a 16-member commission, which will include state agency representatives, legislators, municipal officials, and environmental, fishing and industry stakeholders.

 

  • The final plan will guide how state environmental agencies interpret, monitor and enforce the environmental laws of the Commonwealth and set a standard framework to judge future ocean development proposals for state-owned waters which encompass approximately three nautical miles from the coastline.

 

  • The legislation permits the development of appropriately-scaled renewable energy sources in areas identified in, and in a manner consistent with, the ocean management plan.

 

The legislation also provides safeguards for the treatment of fisheries, recognizing the central role that commercial and recreational fishing plays in our economy.

 

The bill sets up an ocean science advisory council of marine scientists, non-profits, government agencies and fishing interests to assist the Executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs in analyzing Massachusetts’ ocean resources.

Steeple Coffeehouse

June 14, 7:30 PM

Ellis is a rising star on the folk music circuit, creating a buzz after being voted “Most Wanted to Return” and performing on the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival preview tour. This talented singer, songwriter and guitarist has since been invited back to several premičre listening rooms including Club Passim, Outpost in the Burbs, Caffe Lena, and P.A.C.E. as well as a formal showcase at the 2007 NERFA conference. She has also been asked to open for several established artists such as Patty Larkin, Richard Shindell, Cheryl Wheeler, and Todd Snider.

Ellis has a wealth of accomplishments including songwriting and performance awards, but even more outstanding is her sincere graciousness and ability to remain down to earth while her career is riding high. Known for her vibrant and open-hearted nature and contagious sense of humor, Ellis’ music is described as joyful, unpretentious modern folk with a slight hint of country inspired by her southern roots.

Drawn from her own experiences and the stories of those around her, Edie Carey's poetic lyrics are the focal point of her songs. Touring internationally since 1999, Edie has shared stages with Norah Jones, Leo Kottke, Ani DiFranco, Jonatha Brooke, Catie Curtis, Lucy Kaplansky, and Sandra Bernhard. She was asked to perform at The Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and on Ed McMahon's "Next Big Star" ("Star Search"), and has had her songs featured on The WB's "Charmed" and MTV's "Road Rules. She was recently a featured act on Public Radio International’s “Mountain Stage,” and When I Was Made  was a finalist for Album of the Year in the 2003 Independent Music Awards.

More photos from Memorial Day Observances

Letters to the editor

Linda –

I’d like to extend a sincere Thank You very much - for your coverage of the Memorial Day Observance. For some reason – the local newspapers just don’t find it newsworthy enough to cover the observance in Southborough or other towns for that matter. We certainly appreciate and enjoy the photos you take and post to this terrific web site.

I would like to clear up some things though. During the ceremony on Monday – I neglected to acknowledge some people who deserve recognition for their contributions. So…

To Tom Lowell and his helpers from Troop 92 who moved our PA system and cooler of water from location to location –THANK YOU very much.

 To Dean Lewis at Fay School – who once again provided the collation at the Legion Post following our observances – THANK YOU. I can truly state that the Veterans enjoy the sandwiches.

 To Dick Varney and Charlie Hamel who helped placed the flags at the All Wars Memorial and Revolutionary War Cemetery – THANKS again. You two are the extra hands every time I’ve asked… I certainly appreciate you rising early to get the job done.

 To Lisa Braccio, family and friends – Who orchestrated the seventh Care Package Drive for the Troops recently.  Nearly 400 packages – totaling over 8200 pounds of well received and much appreciated items for those serving  in Iraq and Afghanistan. Another job WELL DONE… Thank You for caring so much for our men and women.

There are many more – but these fine folks deserve a little extra thanks for all they do.

Finally – To the citizens who joined us Monday on Memorial Day to remember those who have served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice. THANK YOU.  Many have forgotten the true meaning of this day – It’s nice to see that there are still those who understand its significance. THANK YOU all.

Letters to the editor

Linda:

I would like to add Steve Whynot's name to the list of people that make these observances possible:  Steve Whynot, himself, deserves enormous credit for all of his work during the year and particularly on the Memorial Day and Veterans' Day observances.  Steve organizes and directs the placing of the flags at the cemeteries and on the flag poles on Main Street.  Additionally, he organizes and arranges for the weapons, the ammunition, the the firing squad, the Militia company, many of the refreshments and many of the countless other details that make the observances go smoothly. 

The main thing is the planning that is necessary and Steve does most of the planning flawlessly and without fanfare.

All the Vets owe him a tribute and a large measure of thanks. 

John Wilson, Commander, American Legion

Join the Birthday Cake Search

Congratulations to Emma on being the first to find the b'day cake located on the Naturally Southborough Outdoors section she wins a $25 gift card to Stop and Shop

My apologies for the Saturday Search for the cake which would have had a free oil change for your vehicle.  I had put it on the fire page but for some reason it did not show up.  So today I have spread two birthday cakes around and both are for a free oil change for your vehicle.   If you win today's search (and yesterdays) you win a free oil change for your vehicle at Auto Tech on route 30, Southborough.

Because of the inconvenience of having several people spend the day looking for the cake that wasn't there. I'll add another gift card tomorrow.
