Marlborough Hospital Participates in 21st Annual Diabetes Alert® Day
Tuesday, March 24
Marlborough, MA – March 13, 2009 -- Marlborough Hospital will be conducting free diabetes risk screenings as part of the 21st Annual Diabetes Alert® Day on Tuesday, March 24. The screenings will be 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on the ground floor of the hospital near the cafeteria.
The diabetes risk test requires users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The test will show users whether they are at low, moderate, or high risk for pre-diabetes or diabetes. On American Diabetes Alert Day, held annually on the fourth Tuesday in March, the American Diabetes Association encourages people who are overweight, physically inactive, and over the age of 45 years to take the diabetes risk test.
“The test is a simple questionnaire and takes less than ten minutes to complete,” explains Marlborough Hospital Outpatient Diabetes Coordinator, Corinne Hetzler. “If someone has a high score on the test, we will make recommendations about what the person should do next.”
Nearly six million Americans have diabetes, but are unaware they have the disease. Another 57 million Americans have pre-diabetes, placing them at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Among the primary risk factors for type 2 diabetes are being overweight, sedentary, over the age of 45 and having a family history of diabetes. African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are at an increased risk, as are women who have had babies weighing more than nine pounds at birth.
People with type 2 diabetes can exhibit noticeable symptoms, such as frequent urination, blurred vision and excessive thirst, most people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes do not show these overt warning signs at the time that they develop the disease. Often, type 2 diabetes only becomes evident when people develop one or more of its serious complications, such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye damage, or nerve damage that can lead to amputations.

Ten Broeck Farm & NEDA Welcome Frenk Jespers
Frenk Jespers is famous throughout Europe and his native Holland as an accomplished rider, trainer, breeder and judge. Recently, Jespers left his position after serving nine years as a member of the Royal Warmblood Studbook of the Netherlands (KWPN) Stallion Selection Committee to focus more on training.
Jespers is a KWPN judge, rider, trainer and coach to Grand Prix rider Kirsten Beckers who rides the approved KWPN stallion Jazz. Frenk is also the coach of the Turkish Olympic team. He teaches classical dressage and stresses the need to take time and prepare the horses so they can be their best.
The audience and auditors always enjoy a highly interactive session when he evaluates the conformation and movement of each horse using the KWPN linear scoring. Last year the crowd touted Jespers as a “wealth of knowledge”, well respected by riders and auditors alike.
Jespers has described growing up in an area surrounded by jumping, yet says his heart has always been in dressage. Frenk brings a unique combination of knowledge to the arena. His astute eye for conformation and breeding experience is transferred under saddle where riders can benefit from his profound feedback. Frenk also spends a great deal of time evaluating each horse for confirmation, explains as he goes, and helps everyone understand what’s important to a judge.
Frenk Jespers has a very calming style that riders enjoy, he is appreciated for his international perspective, provides specific direction and he says that even with a quieter state of mind you can still get results.
Advance registration is required to guarantee your entry. Auditors are welcome, discounts available.
Join us for dinner and cocktails! Guests experience a more intimate gathering, a great opportunity to socialize and visit with Frenk during a wonderful evening. Reservations required - $25 per person.

2010 WILDLIFE STAMP COMPETITIONS NOW OPEN
The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) is asking interested wildlife artists to consider entering one or more of its three 2010 wildlife stamp competitions. Each year, MassWildlife issues three wildlife recreation-related stamps: an archery stamp, a primitive firearms stamp, and a waterfowl stamp. Income from the sale of these stamps supports wildlife research as well as the acquisition and management of key habitat areas. All three of the stamps feature artwork selected through competitions open to artists anywhere in the country. There is no cost to submit entries. Rules and regulations for the competitions are posted at www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/licensing/stamps/stamp_info.htm The deadline for entries to the archery and primitive firearms stamp competition is May 31, 2009; deadline for the waterfowl stamp is June 1, 2009.
Wildlife stamps play an important wildlife management role in Massachusetts, generating about $300,000 annually. These funds are used to enhance critical wildlife habitat. All of the stamps are issued both in full-color hard copy and in a black-and-white stamped version for those who opt to purchase their licenses online. The stamps are required of licensed hunters who hunt deer during the archery or primitive firearms season or hunters pursuing migratory birds. Highly collectible for many hunters, these stamps are also sought by other conservationists and stamp collectors.
Through these competitions, the MassWildlife obtains the right to produce the designated stamp featuring the winning artwork. The artist retains ownership of the artwork and the right to sell prints, which are of specific interest to members of conservation organizations such as the Massachusetts Bowhunters' Association, Ducks Unlimited, and beyond.
Complete sets of all three stamps are on display at MassWildlife's Field Headquarters in Westborough. Collectors wishing to purchase stamps from past years should call Mary Cavaliere in the MassWildlife Boston office at (617) 626-1577. The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem has a limited quantity of waterfowl stamps and stamp sets available for collectors. The Massachusetts Waterfowl Stamps and Prints, a loose-leaf binder with a detailed history of the waterfowl stamp program from its inception to the present was published by the Peabody Essex Museum and is available for purchase. Contact the Museum at www.pem.org or call (978) 744-3390.
Information and regulations governing the three stamp competitions can be found at www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/recreation/licensing/stamps/stamp_info.htm or by calling Jill Durand at (508) 389-6301. For more details on the stamp competitions, contact Ellie Horwitz at email@example.com or call (508) 389-6305.

"Next Train" Technology Underway On Commuter Rail
While waiting at train platforms, MBTA Commuter Rail customers will soon be provided with real-time information about the status of their trains. At North Station today, Transportation Secretary James Aloisi and MBTA General Manager Daniel Grabauskas introduced “Next Train” technology that will provide customers with on board announcements and information on LED signs in stations.
“Commuter rail serves thousands of commuters a day looking for an economical, convenient and environmental responsible travel choice,” said Secretary James A. Aloisi, Jr. “With this new investment the guessing game on when the next train will arrive is over – our goal is to continue improving the customer experience to attract and retain riders.”
The current MBTA system relies on several train signaling systems and radio reports to locate trains and estimate train delays. The new Passenger and Train Information System (PTIS) includes the following elements:
Ability to precisely locate each train using GPS (Automatic Vehicle Location or AVL system)
The “Next Train” system operation shall be fully automatic with no human input required.
Calculate minute-accurate train arrival times to LED signs at all stations
Automatically announce via the train PA system approach to and arrival at individual stations for each individual train
Seamless integration of “Next Train” enhancements with existing system
Simplicity, high reliability and low maintenance
System design shall support later expansion of the system
Visual displays for by Train Dispatchers/Operations personnel showing real time train locations on the complete MBTA Commuter rail system
Provide interface with new Solari and platform video displays at North and South Stations.
To increase message visibility at stations, this project will include the following:
Installation of approximately twenty-five (25) additional signs at twelve (12) commuter rail stations and,
Replacement of one hundred and ten (110) outdated existing LED signs with new Adaptive PDS signs.
“This new system will immediately improve the customer’s experience,” said MBTA General Manager Grabauskas. “Specifically, on time performance. The GPS system will update the LED station signs at each station and inform customers as to train arrival. Also, with GPS capability we can measure schedule adherence allowing us to pinpoint where the delays are and make adjustments where necessary.”
Testing of the new equipment is underway on the Haverhill Line as well as other lines on both the North and South sides. Upon completion, installation of equipment will begin throughout the system, with a complete roll out by the end of summer.
Cat in the Hat
March 10, 2009 - Late last week students at Woodward School celebrated Dr. Suess day.
Southborough Recreation sponsored "How to pay for college without sacrificing your retirement
Parents had the opportunity to listen to a dynamic and energetic Certified Financial Planner, Tim Higgins discuss the various ways to pay for college. Thinking outside the box Mr. Higgins presented the program in sections dealing with financial aid, knowing your college’s financial aid history, tips for those who DO qualify for financial assistance and for those who DO NOT qualify for financial assistance. Other topics covered were appealing a financial package, shopping for a college and calculating your expected financial contribution. Several parents asked questions along the way especially when dealing with what colleges consider assets verses non assets and how they would be applied to the financial assistance colleges would offer. A very interesting and timely topic and one that every parent of at least a junior should attend. Hopefully, Southborough Recreation will offer the program again.
First Community Church
March 10, 2009 - Worshipers at the First Community Church of Southborough use their fairly new sign along Southville Road to display their messages. Late last fall the sign went up replacing a much older and smaller sign.

The Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) warns taxpayers to be aware of check overpayment scams involving fraudulent checks identified as Commonwealth of Massachusetts/Department of Revenue. Check overpayment scams are often in response to ads or online auction postings. Sellers are contacted by an alleged buyer, who offers to pay for an item with a cashier's, personal, government or corporate check. At the last minute, the buyer will often present a reason for having to write the check for more than the purchase price, and request the seller to send or wire back the difference to a Post Office box after the check has been deposited.
