Battle for the Airfield -
WWII Reenactment and Fall Open House, Stow MA

A Living History Event that will be "one for the books".
October 11th and 12th - Collings Foundation Headquarters

Picture this....
An undercover French Resistance Fighter met with the Allied Forces and showed the exact coordinates of the German encampment. The night before an elite German force over took a small grass airstrip just a few hundred feet away. The Allied Forces had to gain control of this airfield to fly in the much-needed supplies. ~ It was going to be a tough fight.

There were German machine gun nests set up all over the camp perimeter and the dreaded 88mm cannon was pointed to the sky waiting for the Allied bombers to fly overhead. Another menace was the German Stuka dive-bomber aircraft stationed nearby. The Allies knew they needed a lot of firepower. The commanding officer call in two tanks (a Sherman and Chaffee), troop carriers, jeeps, lots of ammo and a M16 half-track with quad mount .50 caliber machine guns. Over forty Allied troops made their way through the forest hoping to surprise the Germans. - Just when they were getting ready to attack - A German Fiesler Storch reconnaissance aircraft spotted the troops. They opened fire on the Storch, but it was too late! The plane made a quick turn from a practical standstill and landed at the German camp. The pilot alerted the German unit of the advancing Allies The Allied soldiers knew - it was now or never!
How will the battle end? Will the Allied troops be able to gain control of the airfield and further their advancement? You will have to be here to find out. To see a small clip from last year click here. You will be able to see authentic equipment from WWII in action. Everything from the cooking utensils to M1 rifles is original.

~ Entrance fee is $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 12 years and younger.
~ The WWII Reenactment will take place on October 11th and 12th.
~
There will be two reenactments per day - one at 11:00 AM and another at 3:30 PM. The situations and outcome could be different either day!
~ The Foundation's facility and incredible collection over 80 automobiles, racecars and aircraft will be open from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM on both days.
~ There will be a WWII Veterans roundtable discussion at 1:00 PM on both days. This is a unique opportunity to hear some incredible stories.
~ For a bird's eye view of the event: We will be offering flights in the PT-17 open cockpit bi-plane and T-6 Texan fighter trainer over the course of the day.
PT-17 Stearman flights: $230 for 1/2 hour
T-6 Texan flights: $450 for 45 minutes.
Call to reserve your flight.
~ Food and refreshments will be available.

Dana and Susan Robinson make music that is a perfect blend of old and new, bringing roots and tradition to contemporary songwriting.  In a Dana and Susan Robinson concert you'll hear two rich, intimate voices, intricate and powerful guitar and banjo playing with a handful of fiddle and mandolin thrown in.  Dana writes songs and tells stories about America, the land and its people.  They bring to their performances an understanding of America's musical heritage and convey its significance to our culture.  Dana and Susan Robinson sing dust-on-the-boots vignettes of rural America.  Dana delivers his lyrics with such poetic clarity as to take the audience along riding shotgun down the highway. Their stories reflect a deep affection for the landscape and a sense of place within it.  Dana and Susan are consummate multi-instrumentalists (guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin) integrating styles from the Appalachian, Celtic, and African traditions to create a fresh and contemporary sound that is uniquely their own.

Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band is becoming one the most sought after bands in New England.  With powerful three and four part harmonies and fast but tasteful picking, these musicians are blazing new ground throughout the Blackstone Valley and beyond.  If you want to hear some great bluegrass music, come on out and see Blackstone Valley Bluegrass.  You will not be disappointed!  The band consists of two of the finest bluegrass pickers, the Dick brothers from Sutton.  Renowned musicians and celebrated recording artists, this brother combo will WOW you with their award winning picking. The Taylor-Nowlan bass/mandolin combo has been together in numerous bands for over 10 years. With their own distinctive style, these two crank out solid rhythm, and like to have a little fun too!  Put these four longtime friends together and you have a group that has excellent musicianship, fine harmonies, high energy and a true love of the music. Breakdowns and Gospel. Fiddle tunes and a Waltz. This is bluegrass!

Sunset Line

October 8, 2008 - A CSX freight heads for Fayville across the Sudbury Reservoir at sunset yesterday.

Shapes and Angles

October 8, 2008 - The Southborough Town House is lit just after sunset last night.  A near perfect half moon appears just above the townhouse. 

Selectmen were kept busy last night with appointments to several committees and approving merit pay increases. The pay increases approved were to David Maida, Communications Officer, Jonathan Cornett, Communication Officer, Cindi Krawczyk, Administrative Secretary, Facilities and Maureen Colleary, Executive Secretary to the BOS. The MBTA Triangle committee gained a new member with long time Cordaville and an original member of the committee Susan Day Witzell. Donn Pushor was appointed to the Southborough Emergency Planning and Management Committee. Resignations were accepted from Dale Burgess from the Southborough Youth and Family Services and Catherine Weber from the Southborough Cultural Arts Council. Also approved was a contract to replace carpet at the Southborough Senior Center.

The Zoning Advisory Committee had two very qualified candidates. The Board of Selectmen had asked the Planning Board for their recommendation of the Candidate they wanted on the ZAC. The Selectmen had asked if there could be ten appointments to the committee rather than the nine presently appointed but the Planning Board held steadfast that it remain at the nine member committee. Kathleen Bartolini was appointed to the ZAC but the Selectmen encouraged the other candidate to apply for positions open on several other boards including the Southborough Housing Opportunity Partnership Committee and the Open Space Preservation Committee. The Board of Selectmen also approved the vendor Community Opportunity Group to conduct a comprehensive review of the Master Plan. COG was chosen as they were aware of the Master Plan and have a working knowledge of Southborough and the work that has been going into the Master plan.

Fire Chief John Mauro asked the Board of Selectmen to sign off on two grants for the fire department. One is be for the continued SAFE (Student Awareness of Fire Education) grant and the other was for replacement of aging fire equipment. The first grant requires no new equipment and will augment supplies, materials and cost of off duty personnel associated with the project to administer the program. The second grant will be replacement of a nozzle that currently requires four people to set up. The new nozzle for a ground gun will require just two people to set up.

The Fire Chief also requested that the Board of Selectmen consider sending a letter to the Zoning Board of Appeals. Several projects are in the works with some buildings four stories and possibly higher that the ZBA and the Southborough Fire Department would like to be able to negotiate for mitigation purposes monies toward the purchase of a replacement for the town’s aerial ladder truck. The truck was recently declared ineligible for service and the town is permanently without a ladder truck at the current time. With two private schools housing students, large homes and business complexes within town Chief Mauro said it is imperative to get the ladder replaced as soon as possible. With the economic crisis looming over the federal, state and local governments the selectmen did not give a likely chance to a warrant article passing at the town meeting. To replace the truck the estimated cost is $900,000. The Selectmen gave their go ahead to have mitigation talks come up for a replacement to the ladder truck. However, they will state in their letter that in no way does it endorse or put pressure on the ZBA for acceptance of a project. If the ZBA approves a project, then it may start negations relative to assisting with replacement of the ladder truck.

In other business, Fay School presented their next installment of plans to expand their campus. A new Pre-K and primary building will be housed behind the existing Goodnow structure on Middle Road. The building will carry on the architectural features of the Goodnow farmhouse of that era. Part of the building will be built in the design of an 1800’s barn with copula. A parking lot will be screened in with plantings of trees and shrubs. Lighting will be similar to what is on campus now and be facing down so as not to be obtrusive to neighbors on Middle Road. Construction is likely to start in spring of 2009 and be completed by the opening of school in 2010. It will house Pre-k, grades one and two. These will be day students not boarders. Residents in attendance wanted to make sure that the traffic pattern is changed from the summer program. Ms Maquire would like to see the drive lane exiting be moved a bit north of her driveway across the street. They have had trouble in the past with people driving on their lawn as they exit and nighttime lights from the cars directly into the house. Fay school will be holding further meetings with the neighbors and has a Conservation Commission and a Planning Board meeting coming up soon.

October 8, 2008 - The Southborough Recreation Committee picked up a new member with the Board of Selectmen’s appointment of resident Joseph Laning He will step into the vacancy left by Ann Marie Angus who recently resigned from the committee after serving for many years. Mr. Laning has had children go through the various recreation programs that Southborough has offered over the years and he would like to give back to the town as a volunteer on the committee. In other Recreation business brought before the Board of Selectmen, Recreation Director Doreen Ferguson went over the new policy of fee structuring for the local and out of town participating sports groups and the field schedule policy.  Discussion centered on in town programs vs out of town, out of town with Southborough residents, private schools in town and the Algonquin Regional School.  Mr. Boland stated if out of town groups are looking to our fields then they probably can't afford the fields in their hometown and advised Ms Ferguson to research what other towns are charging sports groups using town fields.  The BOS also questioned the practice of private groups coming into town to do Southborough Recreation programs and if the fee the town charges reflects the wear and tear of the fields, recreational department expenses and continues to provide a good program to the participant at the lowest cost possible.  They did not want to see for instance a professional soccer vendor coming to town profiting on participants and field use without some payback to the town.  Director Ferguson assured the Selectmen that before a vendor is hired the costs associated with the program are all taken into account.  Mrs. Phaneuf asked if there was a policy in place on how to select programs or how a person or organization would approach the Recreation department to initiate a program.  She would like to see a more specific policy toward developing programs offered by Recreation.  Currently the director replied that residents with an idea for a program come before the committee.  They have rarely had duplication of programs that have come before them and that they try to have programs that serve the entire community.

Jack began his career after attending Berkley College of Music, touring the world with the group “The Hues Corporation”, conducting at England’s Royal Albert Hall and riding the wave of one of their hits ‘Don’t Rock The Boat’. He then moved on to do studio work with “Mister, Mister” earning two platinum records. After spending time with Universal Studios in both special effects and sound effects on the Incredible Hulk, Brainstorm and Tron, he chose to start his own computer company and a software tax company, all while he was studying for a PhD degree in psychology.

Jack will always be remembered for his passion for music and his incredible Irish wit.

In addition to his mother he is survived by a daughter, Tanya of CA; a sister, Donna Healy and her husband Edward of Westborough; a nephew Jason Healy and his wife Shelena and their daughter Siena all of Wilmington, NC. He is pre-deceased by a brother Stephen Manning.

Funeral will be private and burial will be in the rural cemetery in Southborough.

Governor Cellucci Hosts Vigeant Event

October 7, 2008 - The Honorable A. Paul Cellucci, former Massachusetts Governor and Ambassador to Canada, recently hosted a campaign event for Arthur Vigeant, Candidate for State Representative for the 4th Middlesex District.   Governor Cellucci remarked that Arthur Vigeant is the perfect choice to represent the 4th Middlesex District because of his understanding of the issues and how they impact the average taxpayer.  The former governor praised Arthur’s longstanding service to the City of Marlborough stating that he has shown his ability to get the job done by reaching across the aisle to build consensus. 
 
Vigeant has held elective service on the Marlborough City Council for 15 years, and has a reputation for fiscal constraint.   In his private life, Arthur is a successful CPA with offices in the City’s downtown.  During these difficult and turbulent times for the State of Massachusetts, these are the qualifications needed in the next State Representative for the 4th Middlesex District.

Question #1 - Vote NO

The Alzheimer's Association is asking Mass voters to vote NO on Question #1, a proposal to eliminate the state income tax.
 
Social services are sure to be cut dramatically and ordinary families who have loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's will be severely affected. Mass Health services such as home health and state funded home care services, adult day health care, and nursing home care are all sure to be drastically curtailed. The income tax proposal would cost the Commonwealth billions in revenue and put health care and programs for seniors and people with dementia at serious risk.
