Selectmen waive right of first refusal on Corbin Road land
Officials: Process not in best interest of the town contentious debate that has now gained national attention as the local residents have fought to see the project prevented for numerous reasons, while members of the Islamic Society and their legal representation have cried foul and even presented accusations that some of those against the project may be driven by a negative perspective on the religion itself. The most recent hearings before the Board of Selectmen were held following the Dudley Zoning

DUDLEY — After five hearings and more than a month of discussion, the Board of Selectmen in Dudley has chosen to waive the town’s right of first refusal on the 55-acre parcel on Corbin Road that has been the center of controversy for the duration of 2016. As the target land for an Islamic cemetery project by the Islamic Society of Greater Worcester, the land has been at the center of a
Board of Appeals’ denial of a special permit for the project several months ago. Immediately, town officials began the process of examining whether or not Dudley would buy the land itself with a matching offer through its perceived right of first refusal under the land’s designation through Chapter 61A on the state level. Under Chapter 61A, the land was preserved as agricultural land with tax benefits offered to the landowner as part of the designa-
tion. In order to be used otherwise, the Islamic Society needed approvals from the town, according to Dudley’s Town Counsel Gary Brackett, while representatives of the Islamic Society have contested these facts. The Islamic Society’s attorney, Jay Talerman, has challenged whether or not permits are even needed for such a project due to its religious subtext, and has challenges whether or not the town really even has the right of first refusal in an ongo-

Significant changes are coming to the Massachusetts Turnpike this fall, but several residents and officials in Worcester County feel the new electronic tolling system creates a fast lane to confusion and inequity. If you have traveled the Mass Pike over the last several months, you’ve surely noticed the massive overhead gantries straddling the
highway. When the new system is launched on Oct. 28, the surveillance equipment affixed to those gantries will electronically register toll charges as vehicles pass under them. Drivers will no longer have to go through toll plazas when entering and exiting the highway — they will be able to maintain their speeds while crossing beneath the gantries.

WEBSTER — The Webster Police Department is showing its gratitude after the Fels Family Foundation announced the department will be receiving a $120,000 grant which selectmen approved to accept, with “extreme gratitude,” on Aug. 22. Earlier this year, Webster’s Police Department made a request to the taxpayers of Webster to approve an override budget item that would have allowed for the addition of two new police officers to the force at the cost of $112,000. After voters turned down the override item in a vote of 1,116426, Gerald Fels and his wife Marilyn, the founders of the Fels Family Foundation, saw it fitting that they step up to the plate and offer the police department a chance to expand its forces without having to put the burden on the taxpayers of Webster, awarding the department a $120,000 grant to supplement the fiscal year 2017 town budget. Acting Town Administrator Pam Leduc said this grant is just the latest act from an organization with a long history of support and commitment to the community of Webster, and gave her thanks to the Fels Family Foundation for helping the Webster Police accomplish their goal of adding two new officers to their fleet. “The Fels Foundation is wonderful to the town of Webster and we are fortunate to have these people in our community. They care about the community and this grant is because of the failed attempt at [a budget] override for the two additional police officers,” Leduc said. “We met with Mr. Fels
and he feels strongly about public safety. Everyone is aware of that based on [the new police department] and he just feels it’s very important that the chief has said that he needs two additional police officers and he wants to provide him with the resources so that he can do that.” Webster Police Chief Timothy Bent had stated that the request for more manpower earlier this year was meant to help increase officer patrols on Main Street, which has been an area of concern for some citizens in recent years. He also stated at the time that there was a discrepancy between the amount of calls coming in for response and the number of available officers in the department to manage those calls and that when compared to other communities that deal with similar call volumes Webster was relatively undermanned. While the chief fully respected the decision of the taxpayers, he told selectmen he is more than thrilled to have the support of the Fels Family Foundation to help see his plans of increasing the on-duty force in Webster a reality. “I don’t think I have to tell the [selectmen] how gracious Mr. and Mrs. Fels are and what they mean to the town,” said the chief. “They both feel very strongly about public safety. They’re both very aware of the needs that we have and the manpower issues that we have. As that override had failed they felt strongly that going forward is the right thing to do. Mr. Fels approached me and asked me if we would accept that we wrote out a grant and we have decided to go forward with that.” The chief and selectmen agreed to send a letter of thanks from all parties to the Fels Family Foundation for their support of the Webster Police Department with the generous grant award.

NEWS STAFF WRITER
DUDLEY — The Town of Dudley is expected to launch a brand new website later this month that officials say will bring the town into the modern age, with new features an a more streamlined and organized format than the one currently utilized to get information out to citizens and visitors. Dudley Economic Development Committee Chairman John Briare presented a layout of the new site last months explaining that the new website is the culmination of the efforts of several parties with the goal of allowing each department to upload its own content onto the web page at will. This is one of the first major project by the town’s newly revitalized Economic Development Commission and has receive universal acclaim from selectmen who go a preview of the new site set to be launched in mid-September. Briare told selectmen that a lot of time and effort and planning went into organizing and formatting the new website which already contains phone numbers and department pages with much of the information from the current website already worked into the layout. “We went to work at it and we’ve got a lot of time invested in this already,” Briare told selectmen. “The site is responsive. It’s designed for mobile devices and it will allow each department to be as involved or as uninvolved as they want with their own page.” He called the website very “secure and modern” with video archives and other features being updated for the more modern audience as well. Briare said the website will basically ring in a new era for communication within the town of Dudley. “We already set up an official YouTube channel for the town. That will prevent the town from spending tens of thousands of dollars in the future archiving terabytes of information on their video,” Briare said. “Each department will have their own play list so you can simply click on the Board of Selectmen and pull up all the meetings. It will help Dudley Cable Access because right now they basically take the video in a certain format and convert it to another format to fit on the website and then people’s players sometimes don’t play it.” Briare said the new website will cut costs to the town by about half of what they pay today for the current website. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter will be incorporated into the site along with official documents, minutes, agendas, notifications and articles each having their own place with a more organized and available presentation. The website will also include a advertising module giving the town

Dudley’s selectmen accepted the website as a donation from Briare and the Economic Development Committee unanimously with several selectmen lauding the new layout and praising Briare and all involved for a job well done. “This brings us into the 20th century.

Community meal serves up food and fellowship SOUTHBRIDGE — For more than seven years, St. Michael’s Orthodox Church has been hosting free community meals as a way to bring the community together. The community meal on Sept. 1 was no exception. People from all over the area came together to bond, socialize and reconnect over a home-cooked meal. “We found out that a lot of people eat alone all week,” said Laura DeAngelis, a church council member and one of the people to organize the first community meal. “It helps a lot of seniors meet people their own age and have a fun time. We have found out that a lot of the people who have met here end up hanging out throughout the week. It’s great.”

OHS unveils new tardiness policies
BY JASON BLEAU
NEWS STAFF WRITER
OXFORD — With the new school year now underway in Oxford, school officials at Oxford High School are cracking down on chronic tardiness for the school day with changes announced to the school’s policy during a School Committee meeting at the end of August. Principal Ross Thibault presented the School Committee with a series of changes to the high schools policies including assign a senior privilege, changing summer school course options from two to three courses for any given student, solidifying a policy for guests attending school dances and perfecting language relevant to advisory meetings. However the biggest item of discussion proved to be the polishing of the policy regarding chronic tardiness, specifically when it comes to students late for the start of the school day. With respect to students who have an expected or excused late arrival for the first class of the day at OHS, Thibault said this is an issue that applies to a select group of students from the overall student population, and while only a handful of repeat offenders exist in the OHS system, he and his fellow administrators feel a new,
more streamlined policy needed to be adopted to lay out a curse of action. “This issue of being tardy to class was in the handbook, but this spells out more clear terms the progressive action that might be taken for students who are tardy. In particular we are looking at chronic tardiness to school. This is in part response to concerns that were raised by faculty members over the school year,” Thibault told members of the School Committee during their Aug. 24 meeting. “I want to be clear that we’re talking about 24 students on average a day. I don’t want anyone to think that we have an excessive amount of students who are tardy. That’s not the case at all. What we have though are some students that are chronically tardy and that’s what we want to try to change so that they’re hear on time.” Considering that Oxford High School has no homeroom programs at the beginning of the day, a tardy student is not only late for the start of school but also for the first actual class of the day as well. This setup means that any chronically tardy student continuously misses a portion of their first classes in the rotating schedule. With that in mind
Thibault said that the previous disciplinary policies in some ways contradicted the goal of getting the students into the classroom for the full educational experience, so a change had to be made. “In the handbook it referenced a range of consequences including having conversations with students and parents, which we certainly did. It referenced office detention as well. What we didn’t do, which we had done in years past, is we did not assign in school suspension for students who were tardy and the reason for that is because the state is very much on top of suspensions, including in school suspensions. The issue with tardiness is the kids aren’t in class. So to pull them out of class and put them in in-school suspension doesn’t make a whole lot of sense,” Thibault said. “We had the conversations with kids. This coming school year what we feel is by having specific numbers attached and by having it black and white and spelled out it strengthens our conversations with the parents to say ‘look the expectations are clear these are the numbers’ and trying to work on that.” Assistant Principal Scott Connery laid out exactly what the punishments or conse-

quences for tardiness will entail. While one, two or even three instances of tardiness may be understandable to some extent, the policy makes a clear statement that chronic tardiness will, in fact, not be tolerated. “You show up tardy ten times then your 10th one will instigate a detention and a call home,” Connery told the School Committee. “Any beyond that will have to have progressive disciplinary actions.” Connery stated that leading up to that 10th tardy a fifth tardy situation will result in a call home, while an eighth tardy will also result in a detention and call home before the 10th tardy alerts the school that further action may be needed. According to the policy handbook students who accrue more than nine unexcused absences could also forfeit credit for all semester-long courses and defined a chronically absent student as one that attends school “less than 90 percent of the time” while also laying out circumstances in which tardiness may be acceptable. Thibault specified that this policy does not apply to tardiness to class during the day, but rather tardiness for the start of the day. He said if a student is late to a particular class

after the first period of the day then it’s at the teacher’s discretion to reprimand the student. “When they come in late for the day they will get a pass from the office but once it gets numerous the office will address it, not the teacher,” Thibault said noting students will also be able to do any work missed during that class. “This is talking specifically first thing in the morning. Lets say it’s period four and the student is late to class without an authorized tardy. The teacher is expected to hold the students accountable in some way. Some teachers have a policy where students have to sign in if they don’t have a pass and after the third tardy to class they’re issued a teacher detention, but that’s the penalty. It’s not you’re given a zero or you can’t start your assignment or anything like that.” The Oxford High School student handbook is available online through the OHS website where parents and students can access any information on this and other policy changes made prior to the new school year.

Nichols named ‘Best in the Northeast’ DUDLEY — Nichols College is one of the best colleges in the Northeast, according to The Princeton Review. The nationally known education services company lists Nichols among its “Best in the Northeast”recommended schools in its “2017 Best Colleges: Region by Region” website feature that posted Aug. 30, 2016. The list includes 228 colleges in the 11-state northeast region that stand out as academically excellent and that have strong regional reputations. “We are pleased to recommend Nichols College to students as one of the best schools
in the Northeast to earn their undergraduate degree,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president and publisher. “We chose Nichols primarily for its excellent academics.” Nichols College President Susan West Engelkemeyer, Ph.D., noted that Nichols is proud to be named among the best in the Northeast. “Nichols is honored to be named to The Princeton Review’s ‘Best in the Northeast’ colleges list,” she said. “This recognition is a testament to the dedication our supportive faculty and staff have to
Nichols students, as they are shaped into tomorrow’s leaders through a dynamic, career-focused business and professional education.” The Princeton Review editors made their selections based on data the company collected from its survey of administrators at several hundred colleges in each region, as well as its staff visits to schools over the years, and the perspectives of college counselors and advisors whose opinions the company solicits. “We also gave careful consideration to what students enrolled at the schools reported
to us about their campus experiences on our student survey for this project,” Franek said. “We designed our 80-question survey to include questions that prospective applicants might ask on a campus visit. Only schools that permit us independently to survey their students are eligible to be considered for our regional ‘best’ lists, and only schools at which we see a strong level of satisfaction among their enrolled students — whom we consider their customers — make it to our final slate of regional ‘best’ college selections.” The Princeton Review sur-
vey asks students to rate their colleges on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to the quality of their science lab facilities — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students, and their campus life. The Princeton Review recognition comes on the heels of Nichols being named a “College of Distinction” for providing innovative, teacher-centered undergraduate education and preparing its graduates for realworld success. Nichols is one of only two specialty business schools in the United States on the Colleges of Distinction list.

Spencer Fair celebrates the end of summer season SPENCER — In a yearly farewell to summer, another massive crowd from throughout the area attended the Spencer Fair over Labor Day weekend. A strong lineup of musical performers once again took the stage, and several old and new programs combined to keep guests of all ages entertained. The truck pull and demolition derby are always very popular, as well as agricultural exhibits and vendors, contests, kids activities, and of course the carnival. And despite a tropical storm looming off to the south, guests enjoyed great weather throughout the weekend.

Michael does well playing with his peers and in groups. He is currently placed in a group home where he has developed some positive relationships with the staff. Michael has responded well to the structure of his therapeutic classroom and he has formed some positive, trusting bonds with teachers and staff. He is a creative writer who enjoys writing his own stories and making books. Michael would do best in a two-parent home, or with a resilient and vigilant single parent, that could provide him with structure and calm limits while also being able to offer him warmth and affection. Michael would like a family with whom he could “share a lot of laughs” with and who would also protect him. He also needs to remain in contact with his younger sister. Who are the Children Waiting for Adoption? There are approximately 2,400 children in Massachusetts foster care with the goal of adoption. Through no fault of their own, they cannot be raised by their birth parents. Many will be adopted by a relative or foster parent, but more than 600 have no one to adopt them yet. These waiting children are usually between the ages of 1-18. Many are sibling groups who belong together, children of color of all ages, and children with intellectual, physical or emotional difficulties or disabilities. These children have experienced many losses and changes in their lives, and need patient and dependable adoptive parents who can help them grow and thrive in their new family. Free post-adoption support services are available to help. To learn more about Michael, and about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at 617-54-ADOPT (617542-3678) or visit www.mareinc.org. The sooner you call, the sooner a waiting child will have “a permanent place to call HOME.”

Restrictions on junior operators
Frank G. Chilinski
Stonebridge Press President and Publisher
Adam Minor Editor The Webster Times
How they see us You may notice this week that I look a bit…different. I often joke with my friends that someday I would get to a point that I have one of those professional sketch artists do a sketch of my face to run with my columns. There may or may not be some stuff in the works there…stay tuned. But for now, whenever I have the chance to switch things up, I will. Sometimes, you’ll see a different picture in my headshot box, or I might even add a photo to the The column to add Minor e f f e c t . In this Details case, the photo ADAM y o u MINOR see is a drawing of myself sketched out by my son last weekend. Now, there are a couple things I have to point out here. First, the eyes. It might seem like I am sporting some fashionable eyeliner, but in fact, those are racing goggles to go with my sleek racing uniform (that’s a number 5 on my chest there…). Secondly, what may seem like a normal mustache is something much different, and a lot more hilarious. When he drew this picture during his Sunday School class last weekend, his teachers giggled when I arrived and he gave me the picture and saw my confused look. “It’s your nose hairs, Daddy,” he said, smiling innocently, and causing an eruption of laughter in the room. I laughed hard, as did my wife … as did everyone I’ve showed it to since. It got me thinking about how our young kids see us parents. I often think that my son sees me as this big, Incredible-Hulk like figure that can lift cars up singlehandedly and throw them across a parking lot. He’ll marvel (see what I did there?) as I lift him with one hand and let him hang on my arm like a jungle gym. Maybe it’s that view from beneath that gives him a unique perspective of what is apparently a forest full of brush in my nose… It’s the imagination that maybe blows me away the most, not that I have no imagination. Quite the contrary…I think I have to have a healthy imagination to be in a creative field such as this one. It’s just funny to see the results of his. Followers of this column will recall an entry in which I marveled at his thirst for stories and how we would often make them up on the spot. Recently, he has taken to making them up on his own and telling me the stories instead, complete with locations, names, descriptions and backgrounds. Simple stories often turn into minutes of character setup, leading to a lot of “to be continued” moments just because it’s time to go to bed. It’s a fun to hear his storytelling skills develop. Today, I’m a larger-than-life character that he looks up to. I know this phase of our relationship is destined to change as he grows older. Soon, he’ll be a young man, and how he sees me will change. It’s part of life, but for now, I’ll enjoy being the Incredible Hulk racecar driver with unruly nose hair.

School is back in session in Dudley and most other places. Last week, I provided some information on pedestrian safety. This time is also a good opportunity to emphasize hief s the benefits of good driving behaviors, orner especially for new drivers. One item I STEVE wanted to address WOJNAR was the restrictions on junior operators. A junior operator in Massachusetts is anyone licensed who is under age 18. The major restriction on these individuals is they are not allowed to drive between the hours of 12:30 am and 5 am, unless they are accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. For those people who obtain their license while under age 18, a restriction is in place which limits the presence of passengers in their vehicle. Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90 Section 8 states in part, “ No person holding a junior operator’s license shall operate a motor vehicle during the first six months of licensure while a person under 18 years of age, other than the operator or an immediate family member of the operator, is present in such vehicle unless also accompanied by an operator, duly licensed by his state of residence, who is 21 years of age or over, who has had at least one year of driving experience and who is occupying a seat beside the driver…” Immediate family members can be considered as mother, father, brother, or sister. The intent of this law is to limit distractions to inexperienced drivers and prevent accidents. To further limit distractions, all junior operators are prohibited from using cell phones while driving. Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90 Section 8M prohibits the use of these and other electronic devices by junior operators. Texting and driving is banned for all operators in the state, however, the further restriction applies to these new drivers. Unfortunately, there have been too many tragic accidents and injures involving young, inexperienced drivers. We hope to prevent these incidents from occurring in the future and educating young drivers is a move in a positive direction. Our officers will be out in areas focusing on traffic violators in order to prevent accidents and encourage voluntary compliance with the traffic laws.

A change in the air as fall season looms
September is the transition from summer to fall for most outdoors sportsmen, and it is none to soon. Even my dogs are feeling the change in the air and have a bit more energy on our daily walks. Both of our dogs have put on a few pounds during the summer months, but they will be shed quickly as they burn up calories chasing pheasant and retrieving ducks and geese over the next few months. I hope I will shed a few pounds also in the coming weeks, but age is not on my side. Both of our dogs are in the prime of their lives, and will not be easy to keep up with as they trail scent of upland birds. At least goose hunting does not require a lot of walking, but waiting patiently in my goose blind, and looking back on many memorable moments with my previous hunting dogs makes me realize how lucky I have been over the years. A lot has changed for hunters from years past, some for the better and some for the worse. The loss of much of the prime habitat for upland birds has been lost to development. Hunting for woodcock with my English Pointer “Sue” left me with some great memories of years past. She was dropped off at my home by Elias Richardson one summer day. My wife told me to check out my dog pen as someone had delivered a new pup for me to hunt with. It was love at first sight, but the problem was that I knew nothing about training a bird dog. I always had beagles, which I used for rabbit hunting but training a bird dog was new for me. After a few days of becoming acquainted with the pointer, it was time to start her training. Heading to a local field to let her run, I immediately realized that there was something wrong with her. When I arrived home I placed a call to Elias to tell him of my concerns. He laughed when I tried to explain the problem that I was having with her. I stated that she was pointing every little tweety bird in the woods and
she would not leave until I flushed the The Great birds from the bushes. Is she supposed Outdoors to only hunt and point game birds? Elias explained that RALPH if the pointer was TRUE pointing every bird in the woods she had a great nose and should make a great hunting dog. She would soon become one of the best hunting dogs I had ever owned and the memories of her steady style holding point on birds were like something I had only seen in hunting magazines or at field trials. Little did I realize that I would ever own such a dog. Elias Richardson was a breeder of pointers and English setters back then and I should have realized he had some of the best hunting dogs on the planet. I received a black Labrador from Dave Chabot a few years before and he turned out to be a very good dog also. Flushing pheasant and grouse was his expertise, but also did very well on ducks and geese. As the lab got older I would let Sue point the birds, and after they were shot, the Lab “Max” would do the retrieving. Talk about having the best of both worlds. I later used the late Charles “Chuck” Miedema’s dog “Ace” for breeding one of my Labradors and kept a pup for myself. Again, I lucked out and had a dog with unbelievable qualities, which I named “Sue”! She retrieved her first goose from the Mumford River one early morning in October that I will never forget. Because the bird only had a broken wing the goose started swimming down river. With “Sue” in hot pursuit and closing in on the bird the goose instinct to dive under water to avoid predators kicked in. As the goose dove underwater “Sue” did the same and in a matter of seconds she surfaced with the bird in her mouth. From that day on I knew I had a great Labrador retriever and hunting buddy. She did not stop there! She also
became a pointing Lab that was the talk of the town among my hunting buddies. One hunter at the club wanted to hunt alone because he had a very good English Setter and did not want her flushing birds.. I assured him that my Lab would not flush the bird, but would also honor his dogs point if she found it first. His dog found the first bird and was holding point when “Sue” also picked up the scent. “Sue” sure made a believer out of him honoring his dog’s point. Now I have another Lab for hunting birds. I always wanted a yellow Lab. So I bought one from a breeder in Salisbury! He was a big duck hunter and his dogs were supposed to have a great blood line. “Twig” has a great nose, but she is not the hunting dogs that I have previously owned, but I would not change her for another. The joy she brings my family is fantastic and her temperament is great. She finds and retrieves birds, so what more can you ask for? My wife’s beagle “Molly” and “Twig” play well together and are best of friends. If you buy a dog from a breeder that has a good blood line for your hunting partner, the chances of owning a super hunting dog are great but not guaranteed. If the dog ends up having great hunting qualities, it is because of the bloodline and breeding by the owners dogs that have been carefully selected. All you need to do is train the dog basic commands like heel, sit, stay and come! The rest is all bred into the dog. The sad part of owning numerous dogs over the years is when there life has come full circle and they need to be put down. Some dog owners are lucky to have there dogs die of natural causes, but all of my dogs needed to be euthanized causing me a lot of anxiety and emotion. My last dog “Sue” was more than I could handle and I needed to call my son Ralph to take her to the veterinarian. He brought her home and she now rests at the top of the hill in my back yard with the other six dogs. As I mow the grass at the top of the hill
This week’s picture shows Geoffrey English with one of his Labrador retriever pups that he raises and sells. He was featured at the Springfield Sportsmen’s Show a few years ago.
I often find myself shutting the riding mower off to reflect on all of the joy they have brought me. Please pass me a tissue! Saltwater fishing had exploded with action on all fronts prior to the recent tropical storms, but things should have returned to normal by the time to read this article. Don’t forget to attend the Wallum Lake Rod & Gun Club’s Annual Field Day Sept. 11. It is a big event geared to entertain the whole family. Great food will also be available. The event is open to the public with plenty of free parking. Take a kid fishing and keep them rods bending!
Readers share favorite tips and tricks Take the
Hint KAREN TRAINOR Summer might be winding down, but readers are gearing up with another round of tips and tricks to make life a little easier. Read on for the latest contributions from area readers. *** This reader shares her family secret for light, airy cakes: Helpful hint: do not attempt to bake a cake on a cloudy or rain day! The cake will not rise properly! This I learned from my Polish grandmothers. My many years of baking have proven them to be correct! Judith Heasley Sturbridge, Mass.
ing your carrots when they are ready, cover them with a heavy layer of hay - about 10” to 12” thick. This keeps the ground, and your carrots, from freezing and provides perfect storage for the carrots. I have picked fresh carrots on Jan 1st - when they ran out! (Not sure how long they would keep, I guess it would depend on how cold it got and for how long.) We think they actually taste a bit sweeter kept this way - perhaps due to increased sugar content. Bob Perreault Brookfield, Mass. *** This reader’s tip infuses new life into limp leftovers! To reheat fried seafood or any fried food, put in a Teflon frying pan on medium heat, no butter or oil, occasionally flipping over until heated through, about 10 minutes, and it will stay crisp, unlike microwaving it where it becomes soggy. Betty Bliss West Brookfield, Mass.
*** Patience is a virtue – especially when it comes to harvesting carrots!
*** This reader’s “handy” solution eliminates corn silk hassles!
This works better if you sow your carrots later - late June or early July. Instead of pick-
It’s corn-shucking time and how many of us dislike the silk hairs that stay on the corn? I thought I had the answer last
year, when I used the plastic jar opener pads, I just rubbed it up and down a couple times and all the silkies were gone. This year, I discovered that a wet cloth or hand, does the same trick. I keep a wet cloth whenever I am shucking corn, and after removing the husks, just dampen your cloth/hand, and move it along the ear of corn and voila - silk hairs are gone! And, just as a follow-up to your lavender column: Friends from Canada shared their secret to avoid bug bites, especially mosquitos. Put a little lavender lotion (or make your own), on your exposed skin and the bugs feast on your neighbors. Renee Boutin-Tsanjoures Pomfret Center, Conn. *** A pickle a day … keeps the cramps away? I suffered every night with leg and foot cramps until I did some research and tried this following remedy; eat one dill pickle spear or drink 1-2 tablespoon of dill pickle juice right at bed time as a preventative measure or during the day at onset of muscle cramping. I haven’t had a single cramp since! Heidi Graff Charlton, Mass.
*** Saving money is a trademark of this clever contributor and once again she doesn’t disappoint! Garden Tip: I recycled old yoga matts in the garden as moisture and vegetative control fabrics. I covered them with mulch. They cut easily and fit around odd-shaped areas. Also, one can of large tomatoes and a package of ground turkey browned with onion equals three packed lunches of Tex-Mex, Pasta Sauce and Honey Barbecue. One quick cooking session yields three quick meals for office or home. Here’s how I do it: Brown one package of ground turkey with diced onions; separate into three equal parts. Add one third of a can diced tomatoes and seasoning for pasta sauce for a quick pasta lunch. Add honey, apple cider vinegar and tomato sauce to another third of the turkey mixture to make a sweet barbecue sandwich lunch. Lastly, add taco or other Tex-Mex seasoning and pan grill some tortillas and add your fixings. Viola Bramel Northbridge, Mass. *** Prize Winner Congratulations to

Things to think about when deciding to renovate your home We are just finishing a renovation at my personal home, so I thought I would shed some light on my decision-making process I went through which can be beneficial for most people doing a renovation. When we were deciding to renovate our kitchen and bathroom and also make some structural changes we had to look at the cost and see if these improvements would increase the value of our home and by how much. We had to look at whether it would be cheaper to sell our home and just buy a home that is setup better for our needs. Lastly, we had to decide how long we really thought we would be living in the home after the work was done. The reason we looked at whether to
renovate or buy something else is rather obvious, however the timeframe we plan on living here was extremely important and can sometimes be overlooked. We personally made a decision that we were not planning on moving possibly ever but at least for 10 years or more. This made it easy for us to decide to make changes that may not have the highest return but would work for our family. Had we decided we were only going to stay a few years or maybe just do a renovation to sell the home then we would have been looking for
the best quality items on sale and avoiding realtor s several of the structural changes which drove up report the cost. Some of them would not have resulted in a huge return on JAMES investment. This is a BLACK process you should go through every time you do any sort of renovation. If you decide you need to make this upgrade or repair and you may be selling in a short timeframe or even a long timeframe and you want to make a sound investment, then speak to an experienced Realtor so they can let you know how you should make the improvements to get the most money
back and attract the most buyers when you do sell. Remember very soon it will not be your home, so you want to do the work that will be well received by the most potential buyers. Another reason to speak to an experienced realtor first is because you may decide to do a renovation that will over-improve the home for the neighborhood and thus push its true value into a price range that nobody would pay in that location or for that style of home.

Stonebridge Press Sports Summer in Review
With high school classes back in session and with it the return of the fall sports season, let’s take one last look back at the summer that was throughout the Stonebridge Press circulation area. In Little League baseball, the Oxford Senior Division team (ages 15-16), which included athletes from Leicester, won the state championship and advanced to Eastern Regionals. Switching to American Legion play, where athletes can be up to 19 years old, Northbridge Post 343 finished its regular season with a 20-4 mark, good for a tie for first place. Northbridge advanced all the way to the Zone 4 championship series before falling to Shrewsbury Post 397. In the Central New England Baseball Association (ages 18 and up), the Blackstone Valley Cats of Douglas secured the No. 4 playoff seed and reached the championship series in only their second year of existence. In softball, Charlton Little League (including athletes from Webster and Dudley) was well represented in the Junior Division (ages 13-14) and the Senior Division (ages 15-16). The Juniors won their state championship and advanced to the Eastern Regionals for the second straight summer, while the Seniors reached their respective state championship series. Switching over to basketball, the Tantasqua Regional boys’ varsity team reached the Auburn Summer League final, while Millbury High took home the Auburn Girls’ Summer League championship for the third straight season. In the Trinity Basketball Association of Southbridge, the high school girls’ champion came from Southbridge High. Finally, Oxford High hosted the inaugural Summertime Volleyball Clinic, where athletes from five schools partook in refining their skills before the fall season began. — Nick Ethier

Legislators question DOT officials on Mass Pike changes PIKE
continued from page
officials have lauded the new system as a tool for increasing safety and efficiency. By tolling motorists on the highway, the system eliminates the dramatic speed reductions and congestion that often occur at toll plazas, officials said. According to the Mass. Department of Transportation (DOT), studies indicate that electronic tolling will save motorists more than 280,000 hours of travel time per year, as well as 875,000 gallons of gasoline. Several states like New Hampshire have been using open road tolling for years. “The system will improve driver convenience and safety, and reduce greenhouse gas-causing vehicle emissions,” said MassDOT highway administrator Thomas Tinlin. Ostensibly, the system seems like a great benefit to drivers – but a closer examination reveals many concerns, local leaders said. Sen. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer) recently joined Sen. Karen Spilka and other officials in sending a letter to Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack. The letter seeks clarification on several items pertaining to the new tolling system. Most notably, the legislators are concerned about inconsistency in toll rates throughout the state. Under the DOT’s current plan, travelers of many central
and eastern stretches of the Mass Pike will end up paying more in tolls, while motorists in certain western portions of the state will enjoy extended toll-free travel. “I am concerned about the impact of any toll increases, either overall or individually, for my constituents,” Gobi said. “The 2013 transportation finance law included language to prohibit revenue collected from toll increases from counting toward the DOT’s own source revenue benchmarks, unless an equitable system is established to place tolls on other non-tolled roads.” In central and eastern Massachusetts, toll gantries have been installed in the following towns: Warren, Charlton, Hopkinton, Southborough, Framingham, Weston, Newton, Brighton, and Allston. But in western Massachusetts, meanwhile, drivers can travel continuously through several cities – including Springfield, the state’s third largest city – without paying a cent in tolls. Gobi and other senators would like to see that inequity addressed by transportation leaders. Their letter to Secretary Pollack also sought more information about grace periods to obtain transponders, proposed assessment policies for people without transponders, and the method by which new toll rates will be conveyed to drivers, among others. State officials have already announced that drivers without EZ Pass transpon-
ders will be paying more than those who have the devices. Photos of their vehicles’ license plates will be taken as they pass beneath the toll gantries, and an invoice will be mailed to the registered owner. For drivers like Northbridge’s Carl Albert, the new system is not being welcomed warmly. “I think it’s ridiculous that, based on where you live, some people have to pay while others get a free ride,” said Albert, who used to commute to Boston for his previous job. “Luckily, I don’t have to hop on the Pike much anymore, but I think this system is going to cause a lot of problems for people. Drivers who don’t use the highway often might not even know they’re being charged extra for not having a transponder. Hopefully they’ll make some changes before this takes effect.” MassDOT officials encourage all residents who use the Mass. Pike to obtain a free EZ Pass transponder. MassDOT will be distributing transponders this fall in many communities, and the devices are also available at Registry of Motor Vehicles branches and at American Automobile Association offices. In yet another concern, residents throughout the area remain uneasy about the new tolling system’s “Hot List” feature, which notifies law enforcement officials when a certain license plate passes through a gantry. The feature would only be employed in
specific instances, officials said, such as Amber Alerts or public emergencies. The gantries will not be used to assist police in traffic enforcement actions, such as speeding or distracted driving patrols. Construction delays are also a concern. As soon as the new system goes live, work will begin to demolish the toll plazas and reconstruct portions of the roadway. In towns with large toll plazas like Auburn and Sturbridge, this work will be extensive and may cause delays during periods of peak travel, officials said. All work is expected to be finished by the end of 2017. For more information about the new system, as well as how to obtain a transponder, visit www.mass.gov/ezpassma. Gobi, meanwhile, has been working with the DOT to make it easier for her constituents to get transponders. She has arranged for a DOT van to visit the Monson Senior Center on Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please bring your photo ID, vehicle registration, and check or credit card information to establish an account. Residents from throughout the area are welcome to attend the event – or you can visit your local RMV branch.

Favorite jobs: Part 1 I was speaking to a friend recently, and we got on to the topic of careers, and how unfortunate it is that many people spend most of their lives in a medial job or career that they can’t stand, and before they know it they have wasted years doing something they regret. On the other end of the spectrum I was pumping gas the other day, and while standing there I heard a conversation similar to this from the car next to me; “This place is hiring, how about looking into that?” to her female peer, “I don’t think you understand, I cannot get a job right now, if I do I will lose all my food stamps, housing, free day care, and benefits!” I was both sad and angry at that comment. And while typically I would be able to go into a political/socio-economical rant, my thought process went in the other direction. I went from frustration that someone like me is putting my measly change into my gas tank (waiting for payday) to be able to get to work, so I can have benefits; into sympathy and pity. We all know that in order to excel in life most of us will have to work hard, many will go to school to develop a trade or work on a career field, and

trying… So I recently asked what some people’s favorite jobs were and if there was any advice to lend someone who may be stuck in the premise of the endless assistance cycle.

Investors can learn much from workers This past week, we observed Labor Day, a celebration of the American worker. And there’s a lot to celebrate, because our workers have accomplished great things and, in the process, demonstrated a variety of impressive character traits – many of which also can be useful to investors. For example: Perseverance – Have you ever read about an inventor who failed dozens of times before finally hitting on a winner? Or a scientist who studied the same problem for decades before discovering a revolutionary solution? All kinds of workers display this type of perseverance, in one form or another. As an investor, you, too, will need this “stick-to-itiveness” because you will face challenges. Markets will drop, individual investments may disappoint, tax laws may change, and so on. But if you’re patient, and you follow a long-term strategy that’s based on your needs, risk tolerance and time horizon, you can overcome those obstacles that
may be blocking progress toward your goals. Inquisitiveness – During your own work, you’ve probably found that you can improve your effectiveness simply by asking a few questions or otherwise learning a little more about your tasks at hand. As an investor, you’ll also find that knowledge is power – because the more you know about investing and investments, the better prepared you can be when making decisions. Sometimes, this knowledge can help you look past the so-called experts who are touting the “next hot stock.” Other times, your curiosity may lead you to find new opportunities. In any case, learn as much as you can, and if you work with a financial professional, ask questions – as many as necessary. The investment world is fascinating, and it can be complex – but it is also understandable to those who make the effort. Flexibility – When something isn’t
working, you may need Financial to try another approach. Successful workers know Focus this – and so do successful investors. Suppose, for JEFF example, you have been BURDICK trying to boost your overall return by buying and selling investments. After a while, you may realize that such behavior is costly – in more ways than one. You will likely rack up fees and commissions, you may incur the highest rate of capital gains taxes (assessed on investments held less than one year), and you will be disrupting any cohesive investment strategy you’ve established. Upon recognizing these problems, you could decide to “switch gears” and follow a long-term, “buyand-hold” strategy. That’s flexibility – and that’s a great attribute for investors. Vision – Good workers have a clear picture of what they want to accomplish – and they know what they must

do reach their goal. As an investor, you also need to establish a vision of where you want to go and how you can get there. So when contemplating your retirement, try to foresee the lifestyle you hope to lead – will you travel the world or stay close to home, pursuing your hobbies? Then, use this vision to help guide your actions, such as increasing your contributions to your 401(k) or IRA, or changing the investment mix within these accounts. Transferring what you learn from the working world to the investment arena can help make investing a less laborious – and potentially more enjoyable – process. So put that knowledge to good use.

Selectmen end right of first refusal process CEMETERY
continued from page
ing Land Court case. All the same, the town decided to undergo the right of first refusal process, which officially ended with the unanimous vote not to buy the land on Aug. 29. Dudley will not be going forward with plans to match the Islamic Society’s $297,000 price tag, leaving the land open for anyone, including the Islamic Society, to purchase without intervention from the town outside of the permitting process from here on out. While some outside of the Dudley community have challenged the town’s actions as “bigoted” and driven by an urge to prevent the cemetery from happening purely because of the religion associated with it, many in Dudley have brought forward credible concerns, such as water quality issues and agricultural preservation, as arguments behind purchasing the land, with no statements being made outright in an official town public meeting to date that their reasons for wanting to prevent the cemetery from happening were based on religious bias. While the concerns presented at numerous hearings dating back to February of this year have certainly not fallen on deaf ears, in the end, selectmen had to make a decision they felt was logical and fair to the town itself, especially given the large price tag on the land and the lack of real plans in place for how that land would be used. Town Administrator Greg Balukonis said he received written responses from numerous departments, including the police and fire chiefs, the schools and the Highway Department, with no indication that Dudley would really need that land for future projects. The town administrator also said that he could find no justification for the land purchase by the town and that the price tag would be too much to ask the taxpayers
to bear without a plan for the land in place. “The documents and reports I read include the Land Use Priority Plan and the Central Thirteen Prioritization Project, both prepared by the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission with significant impact from Dudley official,” Balukonis said. “I also had the opportunity to review the Dudley reconnaissance plan which similarly found no references to the Corbin Road land or it being listed as a preservation priority related to the town’s long-term planning for open space in our community. The Corbin Road land also does not appear to be suitable for farming. The front portion of the site is dedicated for other uses. The rear portion of the property has a high groundwater table, making it largely unsuitable for farming.” With an assessed value of $199,800 on the land, Balukonis also noted matching the offer by the Islamic Society of Greater Worcester would mean a 44-percent markup from face value and that any such purchase could be very irresponsible of the town. He also challenged whether or not the town could use that land as a water source, something that had been a driving argument by supporters of the land purchase at recent hearings. “There was considerable discussion during the public meetings and public hearings about the land being used as a municipal water source. The water commissioners had previously reported to the Board of Selectmen that the land was abandoned as a potential water source in the early 1990’s after a feasibility study was conducted and radon was discovered during the water quality tests,” Balukonis said. “The land remains abandoned by the commissioners to this day as a result of the high cost of remediation of the contamination and there are no plans to reestablish it as a municipal water supply at this time
and into the future.” Brackett noted that the purpose of the Chapter 61A right of first refusal hearing in Dudley was to examine the possible public uses for the land. After some discussion Brackett told selectmen that he agreed with the town administrator and that when considering the lack of a plan for the land and the significant price tag going forward with the right of first refusal process to a town meeting would not be the best course of action. “There’s an absence of a public purpose,” Brackett said. “Even if a public purpose had been proposed, which it has not, (the selectmen) would still have the ability to balance the public purpose versus the cost. This property it just too expensive for the acquisition for a particular purpose.” Brackett criticized the Islamic Society, its representation and current landowner Annabelle Moninski for creating a delay in the process and some confusion over the town’s right of first refusal. Brackett said this whole process would have been completed months ago if the paperwork and application for the sale of the property had been handled correctly. “When I spoke with Ms. Moninski back in March, it was her understanding back in January when they signed the purchase and sale agreement that the 61A issue was going to be addressed by her representatives. The application for special permit was filed with the zoning board. The 61A notice of intent and right of first refusal was not filed with the Board of Selectmen. So there was a delay in that. While the Zoning Board hearings were continuing the notice of intent proceedings were essentially stalled because we can not act on a statute until we receive a notice of intent,” said Brackett. “In my experience if a party is seeking zoning relief before a Zoning Board and everyone knows there is a 61A issue the responsibility is on the owner and the proposed
purchaser to address the 61A issue to the Town Administrator and Board of Selectmen in a timely fashion and several attempts were made to try to reach out to (the applicants and representatives).” The Board of Selectmen and the town had 120 days from the official receipt of the application on July 1 to make a decision on the right of first refusal, which would have included a town hearing and ballot vote if the Board of Selectmen had approved it. Despite statements from Talerman to the contrary, Brackett defended the town’s ability to practice its rights under the Chapter 61A right of first refusal policy and undergo the hearings that the Board of Selectmen have held over the past few months. While some members of the public were clearly disappointed with the decision not to bring the right of first refusal item to a town meeting and vote, they noted that they understood the Board of Selectmen’s decision and why they felt turning down an opportunity to buy the land with a matching bid was in the best interest of the town in the long run. Concerns were still brought to the table about the impacts the project would have on nearby wells and other issues that remain unaddressed at this time. Town officials said concerned citizens can be confident that should the Islamic Society go forward with the application process, as it was invited to do by the Zoning Board after it’s denial of the special permit once the right of first refusal hearing was complete, then several potential approval processes would need to take place. It’s the hope of the citizens and selectmen than any further questions will be answered in full at those hearings. Jason Bleau may be reached at 508-9094129, or by e-mail at [email protected]

There’s actually two posted there now, but they’re the older style,” Pizzetti told selectmen. “We feel that should really help for what the neighborhood had for concerns in that area.” The second area of concern was Ray Street, an offshoot road from Park Avenue that leads to Robinson and Lincoln Streets. Pizzetti said a change was proposed to make parking on that street a bit more uniform.
“One side of Ray Street from Dresser Street down is already posted one side parking only,” Pizzetti said. “They were asking the same, if that was possible (for Ray Street) towards Robinson on the non-sidewalk side. It complies with the rest of the street which was done maybe a year ago.” The third request actually applied to Robinson and Lincoln Streets where the roads intersect with Ray Street. Pizzetti noted that this intersection is covered by only one stop sign, but local residents wanted that area to become a three way stop instead of just having traffic from one road stop at any given time. Selectmen agreed this would be the best course of action. “Right now there is a stop
sign on Robinson Street and we’ve had a couple of these letters just asking about this one as far as making that a three-way stop,” Pizzetti said. “There’s a lot of traffic with the school and softball so after further looking at some things and a couple measurements in that area we came to the conclusion that we would ask to make that a three-way stop.” The fourth and final approved changed by the Board of Selectmen applied to a little known area of the town called Fire Court, which selectmen noted was formerly McQuaid Street behind a local Dunkin’ Donut. Pizzetti said residents in the area had concerns about parking and that a sign would be erected limiting the parking to two hours at the request of

of cancer death in the U.S. What compounds this tragedy is that it’s one of the most preventable forms of cancer,” she explained. “Many, many private insurances have eliminated at-cost sharing for colonoscopies and the like. If you find a growth and it gets removed, it’s no longer a screening and it becomes a procedure. Most insurance companies have eliminated that cost of the procedure but because of a glitch in the law, Medicare patients still get hit with a bill if something is found during a colonoscopy. That surgery is the very action that saves their lives.” Because many people are aware that there’s a possibility they’ll be hit with a big bill if they get a lump removed, it’s caused many people to avoid the screening. Channell knows this first-hand. “My mom wouldn’t go for a colonoscopy. She lives in senior housing and they all talk. She was told she would get a huge bill for the removal. They’re on fixed income. Now they’re all scared. I could not get her to go. Finally she got very, very sick and landed in the ER. Low and behold she had a tumor in her colon that was the size of a grapefruit. It was removed and she spent three whole months in the hospital, one in ICU. You can imagine the bills. This all could have been eliminated if she was comfortable with getting a screening in the first place.” According to the Cancer Action Network, 137,000 Americans will be
diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and 50,000 of them will die. Channell hopes she can get Neal and other congressmen to support the act and avoid some of these “needless” deaths. The American Cancer Society will also be asking for increased funding for cancer research at the National Cancer Institute by $680 million. As a cancer survivor, Channell said she knows the importance of this funding. “There’s no better way for Congress to demonstrate their fight against cancer than funding advancements in research,” she said. “Every dollar they put into the NCI budget brings us one step closer to offering hope. Right now we are at a point where advancements and research are saving more lives than ever before. We’re beginning to win this fight. It’s critical at this point to keep the momentum going.” The palliative care act deals with treatment that patients receive during survivorship. According to Channell, studies have shown that people who receive help from a team of specialists who coordinate their care and management of treatment have a better quality of life. They live longer and save money because of less emergency room visits and hospital stays. If you believe that Neal should support the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act, Channell urges you to call Neal’s office at 413-785-0325 before he heads for D.C. on Sept. 12.

the tenants. Selectmen were presented with a fifth item discussed by the Safety Committee that led to no changes but has some connection to a previous issues the selectmen had addressed during a public hearing. Readers may recall a hearing in July concerning complaints about parking at Waterfront Mary’s in the Birch Island and Cedar Drive area of Webster. While that hearing led to an understanding of the limitations and usage of the nearby lots for parking for local bar, but as a result of the hearing the Webster Safety Committee had considered making adjustments to drive home the limitations of motorcycle parking in that area. However, according to Pizzetti, the Safety
Committee decided the current signage was enough. “We did a lot of research on that and basically came down to the assumption that we felt that the signage was in a good, proper, safe perspective so we just voted to leave it the way it was,” Pizzetti said. While these sign changes may not be immediately visible the approval of the Board of Selectmen gave the Highway Department the go ahead to make these changes in a timely manner, meaning the new signage should be erected sooner rather than later.
