Watercolor Collage Workshop w/ artist Crist Filer
Sunday January 11th
10am-3pm at Arts Center, $50


Crist Filer collage

We are pleased to present artist Crist Filer who works mainly in watercolor and pencil. His sharp edged graphic artwork, using both wet-in-wet and dry brush techniques, provides and exhilarating experience of design and color. 

Over the past several years Filer has demonstrated for most of the art associations in eastern Massachusetts. His art, both abstract and representational has been juried into 206 national and regional arts shows and won over 100 awards.

This workshop will be engaging and useful to both those who have created collage before along with those who may have wanted to explore collage but lacked a creative "entry portal."

Expect to dive into the discovery and development of Filer's unique collage approach. Participants will take one of their own "failed" or disappointing watercolors and dissect it in order to rebuild it into a new work of art. Attendees, using the guidelines and suggestions will  plan and critically think about their collage. Filer will lead an informal critique through out the workshop. Most of the day will entail accomplishing the collage and broadening the creative scope of the collage process.


Photoshop Basics Workshop

Space Weather News

FIRST METEORS OF 2009:  The annual Quadrantid meteor shower peaks on Jan. 3rd when Earth enters a stream of debris from shattered comet 2003 EH1. The timing of the encounter favors observers in western North America and across the Pacific Ocean who could see dozens to hundreds of meteors during the dark hours before sunrise this Saturday morning. Visit http://spaceweather.com for a sky map and more information.

SOMETHING NEW: For the new year, Spaceweather.com is pleased to announce a new service: Space Weather Radio, broadcasting live "sounds from space" around the clock.  Today you can listen to the Air Force Space Surveillance Radar in Texas.  When a meteor passes over the facility--ping!--there is an audible echo. (Activity should be high during the Quadrantid meteor shower this weekend.)  In the near future we'll be adding broadcasts of solar radio bursts and VLF signals from the ionosphere. The streams are punctuated by Daily Space Weather Updates from Dr. Tony Phillips.  Click here to begin listening:  http://SpaceweatherRadio.com

Latisquama Road

January 1, 2009 - Wind blown snow blankets Latisquama Road.


This summer and fall, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) began conducting a research program to track the habits and flight patterns of gulls near the Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs, and is now asking the public’s help in reporting any sightings of tagged gulls. With funding from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority’s (MWRA) Water Supply Protection Trust, permit and capture assistance from the Division of Fisheries & Wildlife, and advice from the Massachusetts Audubon Society, DCR staff have already caught and tagged nearly 250 Ring-billed, Herring, and Greater black-backed gulls around the reservoirs in an effort to track their feeding habits and daily whereabouts.  Information from sightings will be used to help identify local food sources for the birds and determine the best way to try to prevent them from spending the night at the reservoirs. From fall through spring, thousands of gulls spend the night sitting in the water at the reservoirs. For almost 20 years, DCR has used various techniques to scare the birds away from the MWRA intake pipes and prevent their droppings from polluting the water. While those techniques – which involve setting off loud noises near the gulls, for example – have proven effective, DCR is looking for a more ecological and efficient approach.

Each gull species has its own tag color with a unique identification number for each tag. With help from the public, DCR has already been able to record the whereabouts of many of the birds at various times during the day, week, and season. Sightings have already been received from central Massachusetts to Maine, as well as from the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Newfoundland. Anyone who sees a wing-tagged bird is asked to try to obtain the alpha-numeric combination on the tag (e.g., A57) and report it using the contact information below. Be sure to include the time and place the bird was sighted. Contact Dan Clark at (508) 792-7423, ext. 215 or dan.clark@state.ma.us. Gull Study information can be found at www.mass.gov/dcr/waterSupply/watershed/study/index.htm.

December 31, 2008 - Southborough Firefighters extinguish a truck fire. (photos courtesy of Southborough Fire)

Firefighters responded at 7:58 AM to a call from the Massachusetts State Police for a vehicle fire on 495 southbound at Simarano Drive. Arriving firefighters found the engine compartment and cab of a truck fully involved in fire.  It took less than 10 minutes to contain the fire, and several more minutes to ensure the fire was completely extinguished. 

Traffic was slow through the area as two, then one travel lane was closed during fire extinguishment.

The truck, containing a snow plow and sander body, sustained significant damage. There were no injuries.

Fire apparatus cleared the highway at 8:57 AM, just before the snow started to accumulate.

Steve Lampedecchio roofed the third goal of the game. Beating the golaie over his left shoulder. Mark McCauley led the team with 2 points including a nice goal of the rebound from a Sean Diodato blast from the top of the circle. McCauley pushed the rebound past the Franklin goalie. Dan Feller also had a nice goal during the game. The other Triboro score was by Sam Voss. Voss played his best game of the season. He was all ove the ice, at times setting up the cycle around the net.

12/10/08 - Triboro Bantam 1 wins 4 - 2

Space Weather News for Dec. 29, 2008

NEW YEAR'S EVE: What a way to end the year. On Dec. 31st, Venus and the slender crescent Moon will gather together high in the southwestern sky for a beautiful conjunction visible for hours after sunset.  The two brightest objects in the night sky can be seen through city lights and even fireworks--so everyone can enjoy the show. Meanwhile, closer to the horizon, Mercury and Jupiter are converging for their own Dec. 31st conjunction. This one is not so easy to see, but rewarding for those who make the effort to find the two planets shining through the rosy glow of sunset.

Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps and photos of the converging planets.

BONUS: Is Venus really bright enough to cast shadows?  The answer is yes, and the proof may be found on today's edition of Spaceweather.com.  A French photographer has captured rare images of Venus casting a shadow and he has even made a movie of the shadow in motion.
