November 28, 2008 - Students from ARHS get
ready to participate in the Second Annual Gobble Wobble Race.

Department wishes to thank the Friends of Recreation, all the volunteers and
all the runners and walkers that came out for the second annual Gobble
November 28, 2008 - A flock of Canada geese

28, 2008 - Tuesday night the Board of Selectmen voted to continue a transfer
station violation hearing until their December 2 meeting when all parties
could be in attendance. Nancy Vargas was appointed to the Municipal
Facilities Committee. Selectmen also heard from Dr. Fazen and Dr. Seder,
both members of the Board of Health on future plans in which the Board of
Health would prefer to move. Dr. Fazen emphasized that since the 9/11 event
occurred that the Board of Health has moved in directions other than what
used to be. They still do the mandated regulations such as septic,
anti-cigarette campaigns, water, pool, camp and restaurant inspections.
The current Board of Health members are all
professionals in the medical field according to Dr. Fazen. This year they
participated in emergency tabletop exercises, expanded the flu clinic to
include all citizens of Southborough that wanted to participate, are
planning for a pandemic flu outbreak, joined with Region 4a for planning and
potential sharing of resources, and have recruited volunteers for the
Medical Reserve Corps to be used for emergency preparedness.
The Board of Health would like to see in the
future more disease prevention programs, sharing of resources with area
towns and personnel health and fitness programs for town employees and
residents. Currently staff on hand are part time nurses, administration,
health agent and a contracting engineer that is licensed and certified for
inspections and review of septic system and environmental plans.
The Southborough Cable Committee were up next.
The Cable committee presented their draft policy plan to the Selectmen. It
is strongly based on one from Stow, MA. Selectmen Boland questioned the
committee on several issues with the largest being local production of shows
and how the committee would regulate offensive material. The Cable committee
said in the policy that there are checkpoints that could help to reduce or
eliminate that problem such as scheduling and having the producer of a show
sign a form making them responsible for the contents and any repercussions.
The cable regulations are not as stringent when it comes to some shows such
as main channel television. Advertising will not be allowed on Southborough
cable but the Cable committee said some producers will wear clothing or have
product placement in circumventing the advertising ban. This is done in
several shows on Marlborough cable.
Currently the Cable committee is located at
Fayville Hall but the town does not have a studio. They are hoping to get
mobile equipment and go shoot at a site. They also think that within a few
months meetings held at the Town house will be recorded. The Cable Committee
is awaiting a vendor to fix the audio. They are also working with Charter
and Verizon to hook up with Algonquin Regional High School. (Many people
that have switched to Verizon in the last year and a half have been excluded
from watching the educational channel with the school committee meetings).
Lastly, there was a discussion on if deposits should be required before
people borrow the equipment If they are going to produce shows. The Cable
Committee said they don’t know any town that requires a deposit but they
will look into it.
Verizon was present at the meeting to ask
permission from the selectmen to remove four poles and replace them with
four poles on the opposite side of the road. These poles currently are
interfering with the new location of the main entrance to Fay School which
is going through major renovation and new construction. Karen Galligan of
the DPW said they had no problems with the placement of the poles, however
she said when National Grid comes in to do their lines they may request tree
hearings for removal of several trees. Selectmen eventually approved the
plan on condition that the old poles be removed on a timely basis.
Karen Galligan next explained to Selectmen that
money had become available through MA highway to do sidewalks on Southville
Road from Liberty westerly to the MBTA sidewalks. Plans had also been made
to make sidewalks southerly into Hopkinton across the Sudbury River. In
talks with MA Highway, Ms Galligan was able to get the State to agree to
adding a sidewalk to the new replacement bridge scheduled to be built over
the river. Discussion of use of the sidewalks on Southville Road followed.
Since Avalon has been built on Flanders Road at the Southborough line and
the parking fees have gone up at the MBTAt pedistrian traffic along the
sidewalk from Westborough to the train station has increased. Karen Galligan
acknowledged that the sidewalks on Southville Road are in poor shape.
Parking has started to become a problem near Route 85 and Southville Road as
people try to avoid the extra money for the parking spaces. Selectman Boland
will have Town Administrator Jean Kitchen speak to the Southborough police
to monitor the situation. Selectmen signed the contract for the Southville
Road sidewalks east of Route 85.
In other business, Selectmen also signed
paperwork for the Southborough Historical Commission to go ahead and submit
for nomination to the National Register the South Union School. The
designation once made will help with funding through grants.
The Selectmen will take up at their December 2
meeting the possibility of naming current Sergeant in charge, Jane Moran to
interim police chief for the Town of Southborough.

DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International
Space Station this morning, and the two spacecraft are now orbiting Earth in
tandem. Endeavour is scheduled to land in Florida on Sunday, Nov. 30th.
Between now and then, many sky watchers (especially those in Europe) will be
able to see the shuttle and the space station cutting across the night sky
together--a rare and beautiful "double flyby." Get predictions for your

SPECTACULAR CONJUNCTION: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and
look southwest. You'll see something very pretty: Venus and Jupiter beaming
together through the twilight. The two closely-spaced planets are about to
be joined by the slender crescent Moon for a spectacular three-way
conjunction that arguably ranks as the best sky show of 2008. Check
