HALEY CALLS ON DYKEMA TO AGREE TO THREE "TRUE DEBATES"


HOLLISTON - Dan Haley, candidate to represent the Eighth Middlesex District in the state House of Representatives, today called on his opponent, Carolyn Dykema, to agree to three "true debates" prior to Election Day. "There are significant differences between Carolyn and me," said Haley.  "I think it is our responsibility to give the voters as many opportunities as
possible to hear and evaluate our positions on the important issues facing the District and the Commonwealth.  For that reason I am today calling on Carolyn to agree to participate in at least three true debates prior to
Election Day. "Candidate forums and round-tables are certainly worthwhile, but they limit candidate interaction. True debates, with unfiltered interaction between the candidates, give voters the best opportunity to evaluate the candidates and
make informed decisions in the voting booth," Haley continued.  "I hope that Carolyn will agree and we can get these debates scheduled as soon as possible."
     Haley also congratulated Dykema on her primary victory, and complimented her primary opponent, Ed Mills, on his campaign.  "Carolyn and Ed both ran excellent primary campaigns," said Haley.  "They are both hard-working
public servants who deserve a great deal of respect for their willingness to put themselves on the line.  I extend my congratulations to Carolyn, her family and her campaign on their victory yesterday. "I am confident that we will have a respectful, issues-based general election campaign.  I will work hard every day between now and November 4 to demonstrate that I am the candidate who will continue Paul Loscocco's tradition of bringing an independent voice to the Legislature.  Carolyn is running to join a Supermajority that has spent us into a billion dollar deficit in a time of record tax revenues.  Her perspective is already
over-represented on Beacon Hill. Mine is very different, and I look forward to convincing the voters that I will raise my voice against runaway spending, I will stand up for open, accountable government, and I will fight to keep our hard-earned tax dollars in the district, to fund true priorities like public education, transportation infrastructure and broad-based economic development."

Winter Heating Safety

Captain Joseph C. Mauro

Southborough Fire Department

        As the cold weather approaches and the cost of heating your home is stretching people to the financial limits, the need to keep warm and safe this winter should be a top priority, especially for the aging population.  A great number of people may have to choose between heating the home and other necessities and may try to find alternative sources of heat to save money and keep warm.  Some of these alternatives may be dangerous and can result in fires that cause serious injury or death.  To avoid the danger of a fire occurring there are several things that you can do to keep warm and keep safe.

        The first thing that people can do is ensure that there are working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed in all levels of the home.  If your home was not constructed with hardwire, electrically interconnected smoke detectors, then you must install battery operated detectors on all levels of the house.  All smoke detectors should be tested at least once a month and the batteries changed twice per year.        “Change your clock; change your smoke detector battery”. 

        Your home also is required to have working carbon monoxide detectors on all levels, one each on each level, and must be within ten feet of all the bedroom doors. These detectors can either be battery operated or a plug in type to a wall outlet with a 9 volt battery as a back-up.  Carbon monoxide detectors are only required for homes that have fossil fuel producing appliances or attached garage.  Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced from burning fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas, propane, wood and coal and is commonly referred to as the silent killer. 

        The most important item requiring attention after ensuring that you have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors is that the central heating unit is in good working order and is cleaned & serviced on an annual basis by a qualified technician.  Heating equipment in the home may consist of liquid fuel appliances such as an oil burner and gas fired appliances supplied from natural gas or propane.  Servicing these units will ensure that they are clean and running efficiently, the chimney connections and flues are intact, clean and not leaking gases back into the house, and the combustion chamber is not cracked causing fire or gas to escape.

        Another concern with central heating equipment is the storage of combustibles near the appliance.  If storing items in the area of the heating unit, you must keep all combustible items at least five feet from the unit in all directions.  You should also not use the heating unit to dry wet clothing or other items by placing the items onto the hot unit.

        While most people have oil fired or natural gas/propane heating units as the primary source of heat for the home, the cost of fuel has caused people to search for alternative sources of heat to save some money.  One of the most common heat sources is solid fuel equipment such as a fireplace, woodstove, pellet stove or coal stove.  If using these appliances, prior to the start of the cold weather season, you should have the chimney liner checked and cleaned by a professional to ensure that the liner is not damaged and any creosote build up is removed.  A dirty chimney with creosote build-up is the leading cause of chimney fires. Chimney fires burn very hot and can cause serious damage to the liner and may even ignite a fire in the house if the liner is already damaged or cracked.

        For anyone who has a woodstove, pellet stove or coal stove, you must obtain a building permit from the building inspector prior to having one of these appliances installed.  They must be inspected by the building inspector prior to use to ensure the proper installation as required by the Massachusetts State Building Code.  If you bought a house with a stove already installed, you can also contact the building department to ensure that the stove is installed correctly and is compliant with the building code.

 Additional safety requirements for wood, pellet and coal stoves is to allow a minimum of three (3) of clearance around the appliance to prevent combustibles from coming in contact with the heat source.  Also, the chimney flue can not be shared with the flue for other gas or liquid fuel equipment such as an oil burner or gas burner. 

        Prior to using a wood, pellet or coal stoves, make sure that the damper is open prior to lighting a fire,  never use flammable liquids to start the fire,  never leave small children unattended near the stove, and use a fireplace screen to prevent sparks and embers from flying out on to the floor.  Once the fire has burned down, remove the ashes into a metal bucket with metal lid and place the bucket on the ground outside away from the building.  Never place the ashes in a paper bag or in the trash. Ashes can stay hot for several days and ignite combustibles. 

        Aside from the above mentioned methods of heating the home, the most popular items used to supplement heat are space heaters.  Space heaters come in various sizes and types and are intended for temporary heat only.  While fires from space heaters are not frequent, they are the deadliest of all heating appliance fires.  When using a space heater you should ensure that there is a three (3) foot radius from combustibles such as drapes, furniture and other materials.  The heater must be placed on a firm level surface in an area where it can not be bumped or knocked over.  Never use a space heater when unattended and turn it off and unplug while you sleep.  If you must use an extension cord, make sure that it is a heavy duty cord with a power rating at least as high as that on the label of the heater. 

        There are other means that people will use to try and keep warm this winter that should never be used.  Never use the gas stove to heat your home.  Gas stoves will produce greater amounts of carbon monoxide and the open flame from gas stoves can ignite combustibles in the vicinity.  Never use unvented kerosene, diesel or propane heaters inside of a building.  These items are illegal for use in habitable buildings and also produce a large amount of carbon monoxide and heat that can ignite combustibles.  Do not use any other type of open flame or non-vented device within a building. 

        In order to ensure proper safe heating within your home this season, please only use properly installed and maintained appliances designed for heating your home.  Fireplaces, Wood, pellet or coal stoves and space heaters are acceptable means of supplemental heat but use them with care and per the manufactures recommendation. 

        If you have any questions about home heating safety you can call you local fire department for assistance.  The number for the Southborough Fire Department is (508) 485-3235.  You can also can also go to the U.S. Fire Administration web site for more information.  Anyone who may need fuel assistance can contact the Executive Office of Consumer Affairs or the Massachusetts Department of Energy, or call 1-800-351-0077.

Closer Than Ever Auditions

"Closer Than Ever" is a musical revue of 20-plus songs by Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire.

Each song is a vignette into a character's life, universal moments and themes all of us can relate to. It is like opening a box of tucked away mementoes.  Each one tugs at your heartstrings as you relive the events rooted in the souvenirs. All we ever have is the present and our memories as we travel on our journey through life.

The Players are looking for a small cast of men and women performers for this musical revue.

You must be able to sing close harmonies. Preference will be made for singers who look late 20's to early 50's.  "Closer Than Ever" will be directed by Teri Shea with musical direction by Debbie Martin.

Auditions: Will
be held Sunday September 14 at 3:00 pm  at the Trottier Middle School, 49 Parkerville Road, Southborough, MA 01772. 

Please come prepared to sing a song from the show.

Rehearsals/Performances:  Rehearsals will be Sundays from 3-7pm and one or two weeknights based on cast availability. Performances are November 7, 8 and 9.

If you have any questions, call (508) 485-4424 or email info@sbplayers.org.

 
Thank you for supporting the Southborough Players. We look forward to continuing the tradition of bringing live theater to Metrowest since 1969.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Linda

   It is a great suggestion to donate magazines as well as articles needed or wanted by those serving our country.

   I noticed the partial list of suggested magazines and wondered if "lady magazines" should also be included.                  

  Your landscape photos are very good!      

   Diane Beane        

From the editor: Yes, women's magazines can be included too.  Magazines can be many types such as fishing, outdoors, vacation, travel, food, readers digests, prevention magazine, house and grounds magazines, computer, games, puzzle mags etc. Although the magazines get sent in a box with a soldier's name on it, they are ultimately passed around for everyone's enjoyment.
