Shots Fired at Millis Cruiser - Vehicle Crashes, Catches Fire

According to a Tweet by the Massachusetts State Police, two shots were fired at a Millis Police cruiser, which caught fire afterward. The police are looking for a white male in a maroon F-150 pickup.

Chatter on the Millis Police scanner revealed they evacuated students from the grounds of a nearby school, locked the building down and cordoned off an area around the incident.

Millis Police also called for a rehab unit to refresh firefighters and police with water, etc.


State Police Release:
Shots Fired at Millis Cruiser; Search for Suspect Underway
September 2, 2015


Massachusetts State Police and several local police departments are investigating shots fired into a Millis Police Department cruiser at approximately 3 p.m. on Forest Road in that town. The cruiser was struck by gunfire, then crashed and caught on fire.

State Police are not aware of any injuries at this time. If that changes we will update this post.

Preliminary investigation indicates the shots were fired from a dark colored — possibly maroon — pickup truck. The suspect vehicle fled the scene after the shooting. Preliminary reports describe the suspect as a white male.

State Police patrols from Troops H and C have responded to assist in the search for the suspect, as has a helicopter from our Air Wing (HopNews file photo). Additionally, State Police detectives, K9 units, crime scene technicians, ballistics technicians, and fire investigators are en route to the scene to assist.

Part of the 300th Anniversary Celebration
Lumberjack/Woodsman Show
October 18, 2015 at Noon
Field # 12, Loop Road

Above., a trophy awaits a winner and a nameplate. The "H" is finished from an American Chestnut, a tough New England hardwood tree that fell victim to a blight that killed an estimated three billion of them beginning in 1904.

 

September 1, 2015 — On October 18, 2015 at noon, The Friends of Hopkinton 300th Committee will be hosting a competitive Lumberjack Demonstration and contest at field #12 off the loop road. The first hour will be dedicated to showing the various tools that men working in the woods would have used to ply their trade, such as axes, cross-cut saws, bow-saws, and peaveys.

The men and women in this show travel all of New England, Canada, and as far south as Virginia to participate in contests and take home some prize money.

The rest of the show will focus on you, the people of Hopkinton - your participation will be encouraged (with some help from us) in events such as men and women's axe throw, 2 person cross-cut saw (Jack & Jack, Jack & Jill, Jill & Jill), and men's and women's bow-saw.

Young people are not to be left out; log-rolling for boys and girls 8-10 years old; and disk-stacking for boys and girls, 8 years and under..

Trophies will be awarded to 1st place finishers only. Hopkinton residents will have unique awards that are hand-made from storm damaged trees taken here in town. Non-residents are encouraged to try their luck (bring your out-of-town friends) they will win more traditional 1st place trophies.

On a personal note, I have been involved with this sport for 50 years, beginning in college as part of a 6-man team. After school, I discovered there were competitions at various locations during the summer and fall Fair season, Many of the friends I made back then are still competing (thank you master's classes), putting on contests, announcing, and head judging. It is a sport that never let's go of you. I hope you will come to our show, and allow us to share our love of this unique competition.

For more information and possible practice times for these events, feel free to call us at 508-435-4976.

Nolle Prosequi Filed In Case Of Irish Nanny Aisling Brady McCarthy
Prosecution will not go forward on charge of murder following amended M.E. Ruling of "undetermined"

WOBURN - August 31, 2015 - Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has announced the Commonwealth filed a Nolle Prosequi today in the case of Aisling Brady McCarthy, 37, of Quincy who was indicted by a Middlesex County Grand Jury on a charge of murder in connection with the death of an infant in Cambridge in 2013.

"Based on an assessment of the present state of the evidence, including the amended ruling from the Medical Examiner who performed the autopsy, the Commonwealth cannot meet its burden of proof,” said District Attorney Ryan.

On January 14, 2013, at approximately 4:41 p.m., the Cambridge Police Department responded to Ash Street regarding an unresponsive infant, whereupon a one year old child was found to be breathing but unconscious. The child, who was with her nanny at the time, Aisling Brady Mc Carthy, was transported to Children's Hospital in Boston where she was found to be suffering from subdural and retinal hemorrhaging, and cerebral swelling.

On January 16, 2013, the child, Rehma Sabir, was declared brain dead.

The Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and ruled that the cause of death was complicatiions of blunt force head injuries, and the manner of death was homicide.

On April 12, 2013 an indictment was handed down by a Middlesex County Grand Jury charging Aisling Brady Mc Carthy with the death of the child and on April 18, Mc Carthy was arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court.

On August 27, 2015, the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office was informed that the Medical Examiner who conducted the autopsy was issuing an amended ruling changing the cause and manner of death. The Medical Examiner has amended the cause of death on the death certificate to “complications of subdural hemorrhage of uncertain etiology” and has amended the manner of death to “undetermined.”

The Medical Examiner’s amended ruling states:
“After review of additional materials including expert witness reports from the defense and prosecution, additional transcripts of police interviews, transcripts of grand jury testimony, additional medical records, DCF reports, and additional laboratory testing related to the death of Rehma Sabir (OCME 2013-878), a decision has been made to change the cause and manner of death.

These additional materials put forth several different and often conflicting opinions about the cause of Rehma's death. While I do not agree with all of the conclusions that are drawn by the various experts they do present a significant amount of additional information that was not available to me prior to reaching my original conclusion about the cause and manner of death in this case. In particular the overall state of Rehma’s health and her past medical issues raise the possibility that she had some type of disorder that was not able to be completely diagnosed prior to her death. Review of Rehma’s coagulation and hematology testing, her history of bruising, the NIH guidelines for diagnosis of von Willebrand disease, and literature on the subject suggest to me that Rehma’s low von Willebrand factor could have made her prone to easy bleeding with relatively minor trauma. Given these uncertainties, I am no longer convinced that the subdural hemorrhage in this case could only have been caused by abusive/inflicted head trauma, and I can no longer rule the manner of death as a homicide. I believe that enough evidence has been presented to raise the possibility that the bleeding could have been related to an accidental injury in a child with a bleeding risk or possibly could have even been a result of an undefined natural disease. As such I am amending the cause and manner of death to reflect this uncertainty.”

Snappy Dogs/Kenny Chesney fan Renee Bond took this photo of the Snappy Dog trailer in Kenny Chesney's backstage compound from one of the Gillette Stadium ramps. Chesney was shooting hoops next to Snappy Dogs just before this photo was taken, we are told. For those late to the story, Snappy Dogs was chosen to feed the hot dog cravings of the Chesney entourage during their Gillette Stadium performances.

Definitely not Blue

Like so many of his blue brethren, this bird flew off when he saw the camera, as evidenced below. NOTE: Christine Navez writes to say this bird is a Great Egret as identified here.

FD Open House

The Hopkinton Fire Department will open their station to the public on October 4th for their Annual Open House. The event at Fire Headquarters will be from 11am to 2pm. Residents and children will have the opportunity to view demonstrations, learn about fire safety, and tour the station. Refreshments will be provided and Sparky the dog is expected to make an appearance.

The Open House provides an opportunity for firefighters to focus on the educational theme of Fire Prevention week. This year’s theme is “Hear the beep where you sleep: Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm”.  Because fires can happen when people are sleeping, having working smoke alarms in bedrooms, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home is a critical element of home fire safety.

Ripple Effect

August 26, 2015 - Vehicles were  backed up on Cedar Street from the lights at Main all the way to Hopkinton State Park headquarters this afternoon. Some of the vehicles will want to turn right onto Main Street, but the storage lane for a right turn is difficult to reach because of the bottleneck at the Post Office, where a huge sidewalk to nowhere blocks the path where a lane needs to go. In fact, in the overhead view below, the sidewalk is clearly the width of a driving lane. And before the sidewalk was built as a part of the Post Office renovation, the space was a soft shoulder that was used as a travel lane to get to the storage lane at the lights, which made the backup less severe.

       The worst part of this situation is that none of the plans currently showing the remaking of the Downtown have taken this need into consideration. None!

The All New and Improved Town Talk

Please register and post your opinions, etc.


by Robert Falcione

August 25, 2015 - The HopNews "Town Talk," our fabled discussion page, has gone through several iterations over the years. In the olden days, for the geeks reading, it was housed on a Windows, as opposed to a Linux, server, which had  a propriety way of allowing communication between the user and the website. The replies to posts were indented under the one before, constructing a chronological cascade of titles. Another feature was the automatic posting of the IP address of the individual posting, as well as a screen name of their choosing, which was usually a pen name.

 

 If the poster had something nasty to say, it was often an inspiration to myself and others to look up the IP and see where they were posting from, which sometimes inferred their identity. Most people posting from home only had a dynamic IP that linked to a major hosting company, like Comcast or Verizon. But some had vanity IP addresses, which revealed the company, facility, school, or government building they were posting from. An individual no longer with the town used the initials of his title for his screen name, and then railed against the school department, and at the same time revealed requests that he made of the school department office for specific documents. Was that super-smart, or was that the opposite of smart?

 

 There were the Obama-haters, who cited specific examples of the ACA that called for death squads, examples that were apparently fabricated. And we know that George Bush caused all of our financial problems, as some others would tell it.

 

One or more posters, one or more who are sadly no longer with us, ascribed nefarious motives to my every move, and even went so far as to document interactions I supposedly had with posters in real life, even told people how I felt, and what I was thinking. It often took a vigilant eye to keep up with being able to delete the posts fast enough all day, each day. You see, although the Windows Server claimed to have built-in security features that could ban misbehaving users, we could never get them to work. Some of the posts were downright creepy, stalking type of creepy.

 

 One poster with whom I never agreed wanted to bury the hatchet over coffee at a specific location, but refused to identify himself first. Was he going to wear a red boutonniere, a suede jacket to the creepy meeting? I never agreed to go. My Mom would have been proud of me.

 

 Another one told me on more than one occasion that he saw me at the Sunday concert, and detailed my behavior. He told me that again, but refused to identify himself. Creepy.

 

 An anonymous poster detailed a car chase I had with his friend, another anonymous, but very prolific poster, with whom I was allegedly trying to catch up in my vehicle. He was supposedly very scared, because there was "no telling" what I would do. "He's a good man," he said of my allegedly intended victim, who terrorized me verbally every day on the discussion page. How did I know he was the anonymous poster all of a sudden? There is a simple explanation. As most people know, I am inclined to read the minds of people in passing cars who disagree with me, do a spinning, screeching U-turn, chase them down, drag them out of their vehicles, beat them to a bloody pulp in front of their cowering and frightened loved ones, and then scream maniacally to the heavens, "That was easy," followed by a heaving, hearty laugh. Right.

 

The Windows server has been gone for a while now. PHP has been the choice of the market for interactive website features for a few years, and so we use it again on this new page, which will look familiar to many people who used the most recent one. When we moved the websites to a new server a few months ago, we lost the database with the hundreds of registered users, as well as the hundreds of posts that had been read thousands of times each. And people have been asking us to put it up again, which Eric did yesterday. But we are still working out the kinks; kindly bear with us.

 

So, please sign up to be able to post. The bar for veracity is not the strict rule we use on the front of HopNews, but we (the editorial "we") prefer that defamatory things are not said about people; as well as an individual's low esteem of someone else should be kept to themselves, which was not always the case before.

 

Let' have fun with the New and Improved Town Talk.  BTW, the new page does not know your IP, and does not detail any private information.

 

NOTE: People who violate normal decorum can be banned with this system.

John Devereux "Dev" deGozzaldi, 89

 

 John Devereux "Dev" deGozzaldi, 89, died Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at home after an extended illness.

He is survived by his children, Lucy deGozzaldi of Northfield, Mary deGozzaldi of Westmoreland, NH, John deGozzaldi, Jr. of Fall River, Samuel deGozzaldi of Little Deer Isle, ME, and by one grandchild, Lydia deGozzaldi of Westmoreland, NH. He was predeceased by his wife of nearly fifty years, Susan Merriam deGozzaldi.

The son of Alfred James and Mary Schuyler deGozzaldi of Framingham, Dev attended Framingham public schools and Governor Dummer Academy, served in the Navy during World War II, and graduated from Harvard University in 1949.

He was a capable businessman with a 30-year career as an advertising sales manager for Newsweek Magazine. After his retirement in the mid-1980s, he applied his business acumen to restoring, buying and selling antique cars, old car literature and other collectibles at flea markets and other venues, well into his senior years. He also secured part-time employment as a member of the Board of Directors of Charter Bank (later Chart Bank of Waltham and Newton).

An accomplished sailor, Dev belonged to the Buck's Harbor Yacht Club in Brooksville, ME, serving a term as Commodore during his membership. He was an active member of the Speckled Band of Boston (a club devoted to the study of Sherlock Holmes), the Boston Harvard Club, Fox Club of Cambridge, and the LLL Club of Framingham. He served his hometown of Hopkinton on the Zoning Board of Appeals for many years. Dev was an easy-going and personable individual of sharp wit and keen intelligence, well-respected and liked by those who knew him.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Mark's Episcopal Church, 27 Main Street, Southborough. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Hopkinton Area Land Trust, PO Box 56, Woodville, MA 01784 or to the Island Heritage Trust, 420 Sunset Road, Deer Isle, ME 04627.

The Shadow Knows

   

I took off on Sunday, yesterday, from Thayer Heights and Blueberry Lane, and now I am lost. I have a blue collar with a bell that might or might not be ringing. I don't even notice it anymore.

A little about me: My name is Shadow. I like to chase mice and red laser lights. I enjoy investigating the contents of garages and the interiors of vehicles.

I am actually quite friendly, and would enjoy a meal if you find me, that is, before you turn me in as a runaway.

 


If you find me, or see me in the area, and even if I run in front of your path, please call my captor , Maria, at  817-690-7466.
