Mass Most Wanted Sex Offender Arrested in CT

    

December 2, 2006 —  At about 12:50 p.m. today, following the investigative efforts of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (VFAS), one of Massachusetts Most Wanted Sex Offenders was apprehended in Connecticut.    

      VFAS developed information in their search for 38-year-old Juan Silvestre of Lawrence that led them to believe that he was residing in New London, CT.  This information was forwarded to the Connecticut State Police, who worked with the New London Police Department in an effort to locate Silvestre.  At about 12:50 p.m., New London Police Officer Laurey spotted Silvestre in a vehicle on Trument Street.  He stopped the vehicle and arrested Silvestre without incident on a Fugitive from Justice Warrant. 

      Silvestre was transported to the New London Police Department for booking and held without bond. He will be arraigned on Monday in New London Superior Court. When returned to Massachusetts, Silvestre will face charges of Indecent Assault & Battery on a Person over 14 years, two counts of Violation of Abuse Prevention Order and Failure to Register as Sex Offender.

      VFAS announced its third release of the Most Wanted Sex Offender list one week ago on November 25, 2006. On Tuesday, November 28, 2006 VFAS announced the arrest of John Manning in Maine.  Silvestre was the second arrest from this most recent Most Wanted Sex Offender list.

Tragedy Strengthens

Dear Editor,

 

Having been a Hopkinton resident for the majority of my life, I am acutely aware of the goodness of its townspeople.  Many times I’ve witnessed Hopkintonians coming to the aid of a family in need or offering support to a worthy cause.  And even though I moved to Upton with my own family three years ago, my children and I recently became the recipients of Hopkinton’s extreme generosity and support.

 

The unexpected death of my husband this past May was a devastating blow.  But with the help of my family, co-workers, former neighbors, and friends, this tragedy has strengthened, rather than broken us. FULL LETTER

Hopkinton's First Town Manager Pens Contract

Contingent on December 21 Special Town Meeting funding

by Robert Falcione

November 28, 2006 — Hopkinton's new Town Manager, Anthony Troiano, signed a contract this evening, the result of a long process, detailed by Selectman Ron Clark tonight.

       "It started 8 years ago in 1998 when Selectmen appointed a study committee," said Mr. Clark.

       "In November 1999 the report was delivered — it suggested a Charter Commission," he said.

       "The May, 2004 election approved a Charter Commission and elected nine members, " he said.

       The Charter, as delivered by that Commission was approved overwhelmingly at the May, 2006 election, and as a result, a Town Manager Search Committee was formed, which resulted in the approval of four finalists. Mr. Troiano was the favorite of the group, and was chosen by a unanimous vote of the Selectmen.

        This evening, all parties signed the contract that becomes effective when the Special Town Meeting planned for December 21, 2006 at the Middle School Auditorium, is expected to approve the funding. The time, either 7:00 pm or 7:30 pm, has yet to be specified.

       Mr. Troiano spent the day meeting people in Hopkinton, and plans to be a guest, according to Chairman Muriel Kramer, of the Chamber of Commerce at an event to be announced.

Harveys

     Jim Harvey appeared before Selectmen to get them to sign off on an accelerated land swap with the State, a land swap made  necessary by the Harvey landfill encroaching onto DCR land. The swap will give the State the advantage in acreage, and of land that is uncontaminated. the Board of Appeals Chairman Tom Garabedian was on hand as was the Board of Health Chair Nancy Peters, who both expressed concerns about the land swap somehow affecting the monitoring wells and tests established by the DEP and mandated by the Town of Hopkinton.

     The exchange became a bit heated when Mrs. Kramer said...FULL STORY   [Correction in continuance of story]      

Hopkinton Drug Offers Affordable Fixed Price Drug Plan

 

November 28, 2006 — Americans everywhere face continuing pressure to meet the rising cost of healthcare, and for too many that remain uninsured or underinsured, access to affordable and reliable healthcare options are very limited.  The Hopkinton Drug Store is working to fill the gap.  Hopkinton Drug is now offering an affordable Fixed Price Prescription Drug Plan that makes many commonly prescribed generic medications available at an affordable price and in more convenient quantities as well.

            “I see this as a great way to connect to and better serve our customers,” says Dennis Katz (Photo), President of Hopkinton Drug.  “We will cut our profit margin for the medications offered on this plan, but at the same time, we can reduce our overhead expenses with larger quantities dispensed at each fill.

            Drugs on the formulary will be available to dispense in quantities of 100, 200, 300 or 400 tablets/capsules at a time; the cost will be a flat $18, $34, $48, or $60 respectively.  Members will need their physicians to prescribe the medications in the specific quantities for the larger fills.

            Katz sees this as a win-win situation.  Customers will be able to access many commonly prescribed generics for a lower cost and with increased convenience.  The store will be able to fill more prescriptions with less overhead and hopefully attract new customers at the same time.

            The plan should prove to be very beneficial to customers without insurance or with insufficient insurance.  Many with reliable insurance coverage may find that the Hopkinton Drug’s Fixed Price Prescription Drug Plan is still more affordable for the common generics included on the list.

            As an example, Atenolol, a generic commonly prescribed for high blood pressure and currently available at the cash price of $30 to $50 per #30 tablets depending on brand and strength, would be available to members at the flat rate of $18.00 per 100 tablets.  Over time the potential savings to customers is substantial.  The larger the number dispensed at a time (in increments of 100), the greater the savings.    

            The Fixed Price Prescription Drug Plan is available to all customers who register and pay the annual enrollment fee of $36.00.  The plan offers an extensive list of commonly prescribed generics on the formulary.

            The goal of the program is to address the sky-rocketing costs of prescription drugs to better serve customers by providing many drugs at an affordable price and in convenient quantities, all while building a more diverse customer base for the Hopkinton Drug Store.

"No Comment"

~ Planning Board

 

November 27, 2006 — The Planning Board declined to send a formal comment that the Conservation Commission requested after hearing from DPW Director J.T. Gaucher (Photo) and Earth Tech engineer, Tom Parece, regarding a Notice of Intent filed with the Commission on the construction of the Fruit Street Waste Water Treatment Facility (WWTF).

     The Waste Water Treatment Facility will have to have a 16' wide gravel road built, some of it through a Conservation Restriction, and some of it, according to Mr. Parece, with side-slopes of 25' to 40'. The road will follow existing disturbed areas, he said. There are two main gravel roads through the Fruit Street property where the WWTF will be constructed.

    "As a town at Town Meeting, we voted for this to bring new business into town," said Planning Board Vice-chair and Chamber of Commerce member, RJ Dourney (Photo, left). "We have to follow the rules and regulations," he said.

    "I don't want to see a 40' roadway going into the wetlands," said Planning Board member, John Coolidge, who also doubles as a member of the Fruit Street Development Committee.

    "I've been in an argument with those people for three years now," he said. It was unclear who the subject was.

    "I'm not going to fast-track it without dotting the I's and crossing the T's," he said.

    "We have to stop having conversations about plans we haven't seen," said Chairman mark Abate.

    The Board voted to continue the discussion until January 8, 2007. Mr. Gaucher said that June 6, 2007 will be the groundbreaking for construction.

 

Trails

     The Planning Board, at the behest of Mr. Dourney and member Joe Markey, played host to members of the Trails Club. Mr. Dourney suggested that a member of the Trails Club attend meetings for feedback. The members of the Board discussed having a quid pro quo with developers to be able to bear pressure to keep existing trails on a property that is up for development.

    "Many Hopkinton private property owners have been very generous in allowing the use of their trails," said one member.

    Vice-chair of the Hopkinton Trails Club, Beth Rohlfs, said many members have GPS and would really enjoy delineating the existing trails.

    Mr. Dourney said, "My point is not to encourage restrictions on property owners.

    "Let's make trails part of the process," he said.

Winter Water Tips

 

       The Water Department responds to numerous frozen water pipe calls each winter with the majority of them located inside the home. There are several measures that homeowners can take to prevent their water pipes from freezing. The water department would like to offer the following tips.

     First locate your main water shut off valve and meter. You need to check your valve and make sure it works in case of an emergency. It is usually located in your basement on the side facing the street. Insure that the area immediately surrounding the valve and meter is warm enough to prevent freezing. In older homes with fieldstone and rock foundations make sure there are no direct drafts from the holes in the walls or gaps in the windows and doors. If these areas remain cold constantly you should insulate your pipes or wrap them in heating tape.  Both of these items can be found in any home improvement store. Remember, even if the room temperature is warm, a direct cold draft on your water pipes, can cause them to freeze! READ FULL STORY
