Hood Blimp Goes Down in Manchester-by-the-Sea

 

September 26, 2006 — At about 12:30 p.m. today, Local Police, State Police and Fire Departments from six towns responded to a report of a blimp that had gone down in a wooded area off of Route 127, by the Brookwood School, in Manchester-by-the-Sea. 

     Preliminary investigation by the Manchester-by-the-Sea Police and State Police indicates that at about 12:30 p.m., emergency services dispatch received a call from someone reporting that a Hood Blimp had gone down in a wooded area off of Route 127.  Contact was made with the pilot and sole occupant, Leigh Bradbury, who reported that he had experienced mechanical problems when he left Beverly Airport that caused the blimp to drift out of control.  The blimp ultimately landed on the tree tops of a thickly wooded area about 2 miles in from Route 127.  Bradbury was uninjured and had to be lowered from the blimp’s gondola by the Manchester-by-the-Sea Fire Department. 

     This incident remains under investigation with the assistance of the Federal Aviation Administration and Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission.  Beverly Police, Beverly Fire, Nahant Fire, Merrimac Fire, Essex Fire and Saugus Fire all assisted at the scene. 

     The blimp will remain in place until a plan for its removal is established.

Some Planning Board members unhappy with Maspenock Woods traffic

"I am hard-pressed how that can be possible to make that a safe place" ~ R. J. Dourney

 

by Robert Falcione

September 26, 2006 — At last night's public hearing, Planning Board members were asked by KSS Realty's attorney, Doug Resnick, "What points are important," regarding a host of objections or questions surrounding the proposed Maspenock Woods development on West Elm Street.

     And they answered with a resounding, "Traffic."

    The Engineering firm reporting to the town, FS&T (Faye, Spofford & Thorndike), sent a commentary to the Planning Board members just last Friday, a timing that concerned not only them, but the applicant's attorney, Mr. Resnick as well.

     "I think traffic at the site and egress," said member Evan Ballantyne, referring to his major concern about the proposed Garden Apartment Site Plan.

     "The existence of the vernal pool and that we can't get the driveway into the site moved," he added.

     One of the proposed entrance plans was to place the driveway into the complex on the part of West Elm Street that is flat, with a line of sight that is believed safer, but according to pundits in attendance last night, the Conservation Commission has declared the existence of a vernal pool at that former proposed entrance, taking its use out of consideration. In fact, the Planning Board had previously asked the proponents to meet with the Conservation Commission to request approval for the alternate entrance. The proposed entrance will have an improved line of sight after a widening of the road and the taking down of some interior elements, in an area that even the proponent's engineer said does not currently meet standards.

September 26, 2006 — This spotted Bengal cat was found in the Indian Brook complex and wants to be reunited with its family. The cat is NOT up for adoption, according to the staff at Bay Path Humane Society on Rafferty Road, where it is currently sheltered. And if it is yours, be prepared to be armed with paperwork to wrest it from its protectors at Baypath. A theory is that its owners are on vacation, and the cat-sitter lost this precious animal.

      If this clean, well mannered, loving animal is yours, please call Contact Baypath Humane Society at 508-435-6938,  or Ann at 508-435-2121 or Kathleen at 508-497-0917. If you know the owner, please have them call.

Road to Opening the Hopkinton Senior Center a bumpy one

Ribbon Cutting on Thursday

By Jennifer Prentiss

 

September 26, 2006 – When the ribbon is cut at the Senior Center at 10:00 a.m. on September 28, it will mark the end of a long and difficult process, and a significant effort by those involved with having it built.  Former Selectman Chairman Eric Sonnett knows the story, chapter and verse.

     “In the year 2000, the Senior Center Building Committee came up with a design with a budget of $2 million, based on the idea that the State of Massachusetts would donate a part of their land as a site for the Center,” said Mr. Sonnett.  “The Housing Authority agreed to work toward that goal.”

     The plan for that particular plot of land behind Davis Road was to accommodate  high-rise, low income elderly housing, from 500 to 1000 units.  As the Senior Center would be complementary to the elderly housing, the State agreed to consider donating part of the parcel of the land to hold the Senior Center.  As a water supply would be needed for the Senior Center, the water mains were extended in a loop in that area, a necessary safeguard that was not charged to the Senior Center.  Unfortunately, the State refused to provide the land.

     “Hopkinton’s reputation was so bad, permit-wise,  that the State didn’t trust us to use part of the land and then allow them to use the rest as they planned,”  stated Mr. Sonnett.

     At that point Sonnett and State Representative Paul Loscocco met with the State and assured them that they would be able to use the rest of the property as they had planned.   Because Mr. Sonnett was a Water and Sewer Commissioner, the State agreed to grant use of the land. FULL STORY

Crash on Route 95/128 north in Waltham

One fatality, one seriously injured ~ No one wearing seatbelts 

 

 September 25, 2006 — Today at approximately 6:22 a.m. State Police personnel assigned to the Framingham Barracks responded to a one-car crash on Route 95/128 north bound at Route 20 in Waltham. The crash resulted in one fatality.

      The preliminary investigation by Trooper Robert Dateo indicates that Nicole M. Helms a 24 year-old from Newton, Ma was operating a 1995 Honda civic on Route 95/128 north when she lost control of her vehicle. The vehicle rolled over and came to rest on its roof in the breakdown lane. Nicole M. Helms was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, and at some point during the crash she was ejected from the vehicle. She sustained fatal injuries and was declared deceased at the scene. The passenger, Thodore G. Helms a 36 year-old from Newton, Ma, was not wearing his seatbelt, and sustained minor injuries during the crash. He was transported by the Waltham Fire Department to Lahey Clinic in Burlington for treatment.

      Members of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, the State Police Crime Scene Services Section, the Waltham Police Department, the Waltham Fire Department, the Weston Fire Department, and the Massachusetts Highway Department assisted troopers at the scene. The two right travel lanes were closed at the time of the crash, and remained closed for approximately 2 ½ hours.

     The cause of this crash remains under investigation by members of the State Police and the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section

Whitehall Deal Doesn't Add Up

To the Editor:

     The primary reason I voted no on Town Meeting Article 46 following the motion made by John Coolidge (who serves as the Chairman of both the Open Space Preservation Commission [OSPC], Community Preservation Committee, as well as, a member of the Planning Board), for the town of Hopkinton to spend $2,750,000 to purchase 20.06 acres near Whitehall Lake was the same reason the Appropriations Chair, Stuart Cowart, said his couldn’t recommend it: The purchase price was $1,000,000 more than  the value of the property. Why didn’t that sound a loud alarm to the few other people in attendance?

Greyhound Friends to Host Its Annual Open House and Reunion September 30 & October 1, 2006

 

September 25, 2006 – Greyhound Friends annual Open House and Reunion will prove to be more than just an ordinary pet adoption awareness event.  Held on the kennel grounds at 167 Saddle Hill Road, Hopkinton September 30 & October 1, owners of greyhounds young and old are encouraged to come down to this event with their beloved canines to have them spoiled on location.  From 12pm-5pm, activities have been planned for both days including pet pampering events such as Dog Massage, Pet Photography and the Not Quite Westminster Dog Show. 

     Four tracks will soon be closing for the season, making this a busy time for Greyhound Friends in finding placements for retired dogs.  This is the perfect chance for potential dog owners thinking about greyhound adoption to come visit dogs in of need loving homes.  The Open House will have food available, raffles, a silent auction, and of course, merchandise for the four-legged companion.

     Dog owners will be able to take their dogs into a volunteer staffed fenced field where greyhounds can be found frolicking and making new friends in what is to be one big doggie play date. Vendors will include Classic Hound, Greyhound Friends Homeward Bound Hound Boutique, and Gallery 55-an art gallery featuring an exhibit of greyhound paintings.

WOODVILLE ROD AND GUN CLUB

 

September 25, 2006 – “Live from Hopkinton --- It’s ESL Live!”   With those words the second annual performances of  ESL Live! will begin at the Woodville Rod and Gun Club at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13 and Saturday, October 14.   Presented by Enter Stage Left Theater Workshop, Inc., ESL Live! will feature comedy skits, live music, and fake commercials in a format borrowed from the popular Saturday Night Live comedy show.  Last year’s ESL Live! show was so successful that the cast was asked to do an encore performance in front of another sold-out crowd. 

 

ESL Live! pokes fun at current events and local personalities, and because we don’t have those pesky FCC censors we are free to do anything we want,” said Kelly Grill, co-founder of ESL. “This is the show that the Saturday Night Live folks wish they could air!”

 

Tickets for the adult show, which also includes dancing after the performance, are $15.00 for Senior Citizens, $18.00 in advance or $20.00 at the door.  Tickets are available at the ESL Booth at the Polyarts Festival (Hopkinton Common, September 30 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) or by calling 508-435-2114.  Judging from last year’s success, both shows are expected to sell-out, so people interested in attending are encouraged to purchase their tickets early.  The Woodville Rod and Gun Club is located at 252 Wood Street (Rte. 135) in Hopkinton. File photos.

To My Gardening Angel...

September 24, 2006 — The clouds parted and the sun shone through just as Jeff Doherty, right, stepped up to lead the ceremony to commemorate his mother, Angel Doherty, who died February 1, 2005, with the dedication of an arbor on the family's homestead at Angel's Garden Center today.  Fr. Larry Brault of the Holy Angel's Church in Upton, above, read from scripture and blessed the arbor while family, workers, and friends gathered for a catered dinner and listened to testimonials to Angel Doherty's work ethic and love of beauty. Son, Steve Doherty, is in the background, sunglasses on head.

Polyarts next Saturday

Some retro-art featured

by Elizabeth Eidlitz

From Apple Crisp, benefiting the Hopkinton Public Library, to quilled note cards made by three generations of the Zanini family to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, there’s art, food, crafts, and entertainment to attract more than 2,000 visitors to the annual Polyarts festival on the Hopkinton Common. This year’s date is Saturday, September 30 from 9-4, rain or shine.

Approximately 80 exhibitors include Michelle Banton, formerly of Hopkinton, now of Lunenberg, MA. To quilt-related items, which she exhibited at Polyarts in the mid-90s, she is adding Marshmallow Shooters.  “They are actually very simple,” Banton explains.” I use PVC tubing and connectors.  The key to creating one of my "weapons of Marsh destruction" is the purchase of a PVC pipe cutter. When I sell a shooter, I always include a bag of "ammo" (mini marshmallows).  One of the great things about these "weapons" is that if you get hungry, you can always eat the "ammunition.”

Three booths will feature first time exhibitors intent on reclaiming lost arts. Inez M. Gornall of Uxbridge, and her students Diane Mercier, Azra Fazelbhoy, Terry George and Pam Benoit, will exhibit examples of the fine art of porcelain painting: A powdered form of an overglaze china paint is mixed with oil and used to paint a design on a blank piece of white porcelain. After kiln firing at a high temperature to melt the glaze on the porcelain and allow the paint design to "melt" in to the glaze and become permanent, more paint is added to deepen the design.  The piece is then refired.  This process can be repeated as many times as necessary until the desired detail is achieved.

Just set me free...

September 23, 2006 — Dan Boucher caught the lunker, the largest fish at 3.91 lbs., at Lake Whitehall during the American Bass Anglers District 36 tournament today. Director Ken King, right rear, said that the interest in this tournament has grown from two participants when he took over five years ago, to twenty-nine entries today, out of over one-hundred members. Mr. King said that the group donates to the Woodville Rod and Gun Children's Fishing Derby.

     Each man keeps the fish he catches in a hold on his boat until it is time to weigh them for the prizes, which totaled around $1500 today. The participants are anglers, and do not catch the fish for eating, but for sport. They must keep them alive until the weigh-in, after which time they set them free for another day.

School Committee Reviews Financial Items and New Policies

More discussion of Budget timeline being affected by new Town Charter

By David Hamacher

 

September 21, 2006 — Given the Hillers football game and curriculum night, it was a busy night at the Middle School as the school committee started their meeting at 8:00 and dealt primarily with all financial issues.

     Under new business, Superintendent Dr. Phelan presented 13 new stipend positions that had been negotiated between former Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kevin Lyons and the teacher’s union representative, Ellenore Porter. Allocations for all positions ran from $500 to $4,500 for the year with the event manager/game administrator receiving the highest amount. Increases were given to the Unite Advisor, Robotics Advisor, 8th Grade Celebration Advisor, and the Pre-School Coordinator. The total amount of all stipends was $17,050.00.

     The 2nd reading of the School Committee Governance Policy was reviewed by Ms. Lyn Branscomb, which included the edits discussed during the September 7th committee meeting. Following the review, member Phil Totino asked for clarification as to whether the document was to be looked at as guidelines or as policy. After discussion, it was agreed that the adoption would fall under policy. Chair Rebecca Robak indicated her concern that the new school committee orientation was an addition to the policy. Dr. Phelan inquired as to some missing references to Mass General Laws that would make it easier for people to reference certain aspects. It was agreed that Ms. Branscomb would perform the requisite research, insert the proper references, and forward the document to the Superintendent’s office next week for posting on the district web site for public review over the next two weeks. Following the public review, further revisions (if any) would be made before the committee officially adopts the policy. Look for that policy to be published by the end of next week. FULL STORY

Hillers lose thriller to Medfield 26 - 21

by Peter Marso

September 21, 2006 — The Hopkinton Hillers lost a Tri-Valley league football thriller to The Medfield Warriors tonight in a game played in Hopkinton, 26-21.

      The Hillers were tied at the half 7-7, but had to play catch up football and put on a last minute scramble including an onside kick only to bow out 26-21. The Hopkinton scoring was done by Anthony Tomasz, Paul Ostrander and Kevin Cassata.

      The Hillers moved the ball well but had a tough assignment holding the Warrior offense. The loss puts them at 1-2 and they will be traveling to Norton next Friday to meet the lancers. Paul Ostrander made a few terrific catches as he kept the Hillers close all the way through. The Hillers should be at full strength against Norton as injuries have hurt the chance against Medfield. The team is good and has a lot of depth and should have no problem rebounding .

      It was a great football game !!

September 21, 2006 — Above, Anthony Tomasz brings it home against Medfield this evening, adding the first six points for the Hillers.

State Police STOP  Team Makes 2 Arrests

(File Photo/Graphic on left for illustration only*)

 

September 21, 2006 — Today at about 5:40 p.m. members of the State Police STOP Team and Leominster Police Department conducted a raid at the Litchfield Apartments on Central Street in Leominster that resulted in the arrest of two males who were wanted on warrants for weapons related charges. 

      The charges in the warrants stemmed from a lengthy investigation that was conducted by Trooper Michael Fitzgerald of the State Police Leominster Barracks, and assisted by Leominster Police after an initial incident that occurred on September 2, 2006 on Merriam Avenue in Leominster that resulted in the State Police seizing one loaded H & K 40 caliber semi-automatic pistol and one loaded Ruger 9mm caliber semi-automatic pistol from a motor vehicle after a motor vehicle stop. 

     Today’s raid resulted in the arrest of Casin Davila, age 20 of 101 Third Street, Floor 1, Leominster on a Leominster District Court warrant for1) Possession of a stolen handgun. 2) Unlawful possession of firearm without a license. 3) Possession of a high capacity weapon. 4) Possession of ammunition without an F.I.D. card.  5)  Disorderly conduct. 6) Possession of a class D substance.

      Today’s raid also resulted in the arrest of Taino Rodriquez, age 20 of an unknown address.  He was arrested on a Leominster District Court warrant that lists the following 5 charges: 1) Possession of a stolen handgun. 2) Unlawful possession of firearm without a license. 3) Possession of a high capacity weapon. 4) Possession of ammunition without an F.I.D. card and 5) Disorderly conduct. 

     Both subjects were arrested and transported to the State Police Leominster Barracks where they were booked and are currently being held on $10,000 bail.  They are scheduled to appear at Leominster District Court tomorrow. 

 

*HopNews photo above illustrates a textbook example of the work of the State Police STOP team that occurred on Route 495 on  April 15, 2006, after Trooper Dowd said he witnessed the driver he stopped get out of the car with a handgun in his belt. Trooper Dowd said the driver refused to follow his orders. The STOP Team came in, bottom center, and ended up using a less-than-lethal weapon, a bean bag projectile, to force the subject to submit to arrest. Simultaneously, a "flash/bang" weapon was used to further disorient the suspect, top left inset.

Calling all Volunteers - Opportunity is Knocking

Above, Amy Wilson Kent arrives at the new Senior Center with a wall decoration.

September 21, 2006 — We've had a tremendous response from individuals to act as volunteers at the fast paced front desk at the new senior center as well as several other high profile areas. Thank you, everyone, for the interest you've shown. We will do our best to accommodate our volunteer’s requests yet we hope you will all be flexible. And for those of you who may be looking for something a little more laid-back and also enjoy meeting people there are many other volunteer opportunities for you to consider including today's featured position.

 

Dining Room Hosts/Servers

The senior center is excited to announce that it will begin offering nutritious, home cooked meals Monday through Friday midday in its bright new dining room for a reasonable cost. Many seniors have responded enthusiastically stating they are tired of cooking for one or eating alone. We're happy to oblige. Dining room hosts/servers are needed to help out once or twice a month specifically between 11:00am and 1:00 pm. Irene Salvucci, the center's faithful lunch coordinator, and a small group of dedicated volunteers have been serving lunch for years on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the former site. With their limited numbers they will not be able to provide adequate coverage for the expanding lunch program without additional help. For those of you who are able and willing the opportunity awaits for you to volunteer in a friendly, relaxed setting. Just bring your smile! Call Amy Wilson Kent at 508/497-9730for more information or to request an application. ~ Amy Wilson Kent
