An update on Mom

March 26, 2009 - Many of my readers have been following my mom’s fight with Alzheimer’s. Several of you have recently asked how she is doing. For our new readers just a quick explanation. Mom was diagnosed about two years ago with Alzheimer’s. At the time they thought she could handle it through assisted living. When that didn’t work out we had mom staying at my sister’s with an at home care agency while she worked. Unfortunately, the care giver locked mom in the house one very cold day last winter. Mom managed to get out and walked around the neighborhood with no jacket before someone noticed her and called the local police and fire.

As much as we tried to live with the disease and have mom stay at home with care, it didn’t work out. Mom is still alive and struggling with the disease each and every day. It may sound callous but we did try various methods of keeping mom out of a nursing home for as long as we could but we ended up surrendering her to a nursing home due to the severity of the Alzheimer’s. Mom is confined to a wheelchair (belted in as she no longer has her balance or strength to walk even a few steps.) About the only other activity she can do is to lie in bed and sleep.

Each week we have good days and bad days. The good days are when her eyes are open and she can talk. The bad days come often with her uncontrollable screaming and even swearing. This is from a mom who rarely yelled at us and NEVER swore in her whole life. She’d be mad at us for even saying damn. The disease affects the brain so differently that oftentimes she doesn’t even know we are there or who we are. She thinks of herself as a school age girl around twelve. Mostly she talks to people in her past that have died many years ago such as her siblings and her mom/dad.

For me, writing about my experience with mom and Alzheimer’s and publishing Alzheimer’s events and activities is my way of working through this horrible disease. Mom doesn’t know she is sick or why she is in the nursing home. But I and my siblings do and we know how much the disease can wrack a family. Someday we all hope for a cure.

                                                        Southborough Public Library Welcomes New Director
 Jane N. Cain, of Berlin, Mass., is the new Director of the Southborough Public Library. She took over her duties as Library Director on March 9. Kimberley Ivers, Director at the library since 2007, returned to her previous position as Children’s Librarian.
Cain is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, where she received a Bachelor's degree in Political Science, and of Simmons College of Library and Information Science in Boston, where she received a Master's degree. Librarianship is her second career, and Cain worked in marketing and communications for nearly 20 years -- in book publishing as a project manager, and for years had her own business in desktop publishing. She was a communications manager for Fidelity Investments.
While studying nights and weekends for her Library Master's degree, she worked in the Northborough Public Library and at the Berlin Public Library. She was Head of Technical Services for the Shrewsbury Public Library and most recently, was Library Director in Dudley, Massachusetts. She brings to the library a wide variety of knowledge and professional experience.
Jane is married to Rick Cain, Director of Music at Tahanto Regional High School in Boylston, Mass., and a freelance double bass player. They have two children, both in college.
Cain's selection as Library Director was based on her understanding of the significance of libraries in today's society, technological experience required in managing library services, and her leadership skills. "In these trying economic times, I know it will be a challenge, but we will have fun, too!"  Cain told the Library Trustees.
Among her responsibilities at the library, Cain is planning activities for teens and adults at the Library for the summer and fall. Come in to the library to meet our new director, introduce yourself, and help plan the library’s future.

THE UNITED PARISHES OF SOUTHBORO FOOD PANTRY: We have been informed that the Dept. of Transitional Assistance is anticipating placing 10 homeless families at the Red Roof Inn in Southborough. Many of these families will arrive at Red Roof with practically nothing. The Southborough Food Pantry is trying to assist them as much as possible. This will mean an increased need for donations of non-perishable food that can be microwaved and juice boxes. In addition, there are special needs— diapers, can openers, paper plates, plastic utensils, as well as extra laundry detergent and dish detergent. We are also trying to

provide these families with small dorm refrigerators and small microwaves. These are not available at the Red Roof Inn.

Thank you as always for your generosity. Contributions of all items are always accepted. As most food items are date sensitive, please be sure that your

donation is not out of date. Donations may be left in the foyer of the church or parish hall. If you would prefer to make a monetary contribution to the Southborough Food Pantry, please make out your check to the Southborough Food Pantry and send it to the

Southborough Food Pantry, P. O. Box 281, Southborough, MA 01772. All contributions are tax deductible. Thank you again for your

continued support. Pantry hours (located at Pilgrim Church) are Tuesdays from 7-8 pm and Fridays from 10-11 am.

Southborough to be a Movie Star Location?

March 24, 2009 by Linda Hubley -Selectmen, tonight, interviewed the four candidates for Southborough Building Inspector. Two of the candidates, Jon Metievier and David Gusmini currently hold jobs as building inspectors in the towns of Acton and Natick. Robert Lanciani has worked for a number of years as clerk of the works at several municipal building projects around Worcester County. All are certified building inspectors and many of them keep up to date by taking educational classes. Selectmen will discuss the interviews of the four candidates at their next meeting.

In other business Selectmen directed Phil Rinehart to gather two roofing bids for Cordaville Hall. One would be for removal of the back dormers and roofing the building while the other bid would be to take all the dormers off the building and get an estimate for the roofing.

Rumors are true that Southborough could be in a new movie Adam Sandler will be filming in Massachusetts this spring. It will be about several friends that get together again after the funeral of another friend. Rumor has it that some of the actors/actresses in the movie are Rob Schneider, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek and David Spade.

As presented to the Selectmen tonight, Charlie Harrington and Mark Fitzgerald both from Columbia pictures, spoke how they would be using Pilgrim Church. The film director would like to sod in St. Mark’s Road and put in a gazebo for the movie. They have already talked with the Southborough Police and Fire Chief about traffic and parking concerns. Mr. Harrington estimated that there would be about one hundred vehicles owned by the extras and crew and roughly fifteen eighteen wheelers loaded with equipment. These vehicles would be parked off site. However the generator truck and the camera truck they would like to see at the end of the Town House parking area during filming.

Set up for the movies would take place May 11th to the 15th to lay about one hundred feet of sod on St. Mark’s roadway. The actual shooting would take place May 18th through the 22nd. Cleanup would commence after that date from the 23rd to the 27th. However, they suggested they could leave it there for the Memorial Day activities with use of the Gazebo otherwise they would have to try for a quick breakdown on Saturday.

Selectmen raised the following concerns. They wanted a more definite time frame in writing along with what the movie company actually wants for road closures, times of day, police officers and several other items. They also had concerns about the flow of traffic around the movie site, especially through the route 85/30 intersection which would see higher usage due to the fact St. Mark’s Street would be closed. Concerns were also raised about the Morris Funeral home if there were to be a funeral. Selectmen also were concerned thinking that the $10,000 offered to the town for use of the road closed was a bit low. Mr. Harrington will be contacting the studio to see if that figure could be raised.

Mr. Harrington and Mr. Fitzgerald agreed to come back with more detailed information.

Don't forget the Pets when Donating to the Food Pantry

As the times get tougher, more and more families are going to the local food pantry located at Pilgrim Church. Barbara Jandrue who manages the food pantry in Southborough says they are always in need of canned food, cereals, crackers, backpack snacks, paper products, cleaning supplies and will accept financial donations. But now there is a new need. Many of you have probably read about how the mortgage crisis and economy are making more and more families drop off their beloved pets to animal shelters because they can’t afford to feed them. Southborough Police Officer Meredith Lobur has offered to help the Southborough Food Pantry by asking for donations to help families feed their pets. Donations can be dropped off at the Southborough Police Station or you can call Officer Lobur at the Southborough Police business line 508- 485 - 2147 and she will make arrangements to pick up the donations. Donated items can be unopened bags of dry pet food, canned pet food and unopened treats or you may want to consider a cash donation for the purchase of pet food supplies. At the present time there is no storage area at the Pilgrim Church closet that acts as the food pantry, Officer Lobur has offered to pickup, store and deliver the pet food for the food pantry. If you can help it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

State Officials, AAA and Trooper Struck on Roadway to Remind Drivers to “Move Over” Per New Law

The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, Massachusetts State Police, state transportation officials, emergency responders, roadway maintenance professionals and other concerned parties gathered today to raise awareness of the state’s new Move Over Law and promote safe driving across the Commonwealth. Joining them was State Trooper Dana Cresta, who was injured when he was struck by a driver last year while he was out of his cruiser on a prior motor vehicle stop.

The new Move Over Law, which takes effect March 22, aims to protect police, firefighters, paramedics, tow truck drivers, and all roadside emergency and maintenance workers.  The law requires all drivers approaching a stationary emergency or maintenance vehicle with flashing lights to move to the next adjacent lane if it is safe to do so, and, barring that, to reduce their speed. Drivers who violate the Move Over Law face a fine of up to $100.

“In just four days the Move Over Law will take effect, and we want to get the word out to all drivers to help protect our emergency and maintenance vehicle workers,” EOPSS Director of Highway Safety Sheila Burgess said at the event, held at State Police General Headquarters in Framingham. “Making it home safely can be as simple as slowing down and moving over when you are faced with vehicles on the side of the road. Not doing so can have serious or even fatal consequences.”

Every year, first responders across the country are injured or killed while providing emergency roadside help. In recent months, several Massachusetts state troopers have been injured on the job. According to the Merit Rating Board, in 2008 there were nearly 2,000 violations of Chapter 89 Sec. 7a which deals with obstructing emergency vehicles including failure to yield and following too closely.

“The Massachusetts State Police know all too dearly the consequences of drivers failing to use caution when approaching troopers, local police officers, firefighters, EMTs, tow drivers and highway workers who are performing their duties at the side of the road,” said Colonel Mark F. Delaney, superintendent of the State Police. “We are grateful to the Patrick Administration and the Legislature for making this much needed new law a priority, and helping protect those whose job is to protect the public.”

Added MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky: “Obeying the Move Over Law will help protect drivers, as well as officers and highway workers, from needless injury or even death. Highway safety is a top priority in Massachusetts thanks to a strong partnership among agencies who are dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roadways. This law is an important step in improving road safety.”

ALL NEW SOUTHBOROUGH FORUMS

A few months back when we reached our 100,000 visitor, the Southborough News created a forum and interactive calendar for our readers.  However, it was a forum that had many technical problems and our crew has searched for an easier to register and use forum/calendar option.  Today we  unveil the new southborough forums.  Click here for the forum.  Want to see what is going on in town or want to add an event? Click here for the Calendar.  All readers are welcome to update the calendar with your event. 

The forum and calendar will be monitored for inappropriate use and please do remember that this is an open forum so please be polite in responding to messages. Thank you very much and ENJOY AND HAVE FUN!
