Proceedings began with Article 9. Town Planner Jim Robbins explained that this will enable Westborough to enter into an arrangement with the state in which Westborough will grant permits for construction\, relevant to the Westborough State Hospital development site\, within 180 days of a complete application. The article passed 77 to 17. \nThe former hospital property is under agreement with Pulte Homes and this article will provide the town with an additional 2.5 percent of the net sale price in proceeds as part of the disposition formula. This amounts to an extra $172\,000. Pulte has already provided the town with a development plan. \nRelated to the Westborough State Hospital redevelopment project\, Article 13 would amend the Zoning Bylaws by modifying the 20 percent affordable housing requirement in the Senior Living Overlay to 10 to 20 percent. \nMark Silverberg\, chair of the Planning Board\, made a motion that Article 13 be referred back to the Planning Board for further study and that the Planning Board return to a future Town Meeting with a recommendation for the voters. Town Meeting voted 110 to 4 in favor of Silverberg’s motion. \nSelectman Ian Johnson spoke on behalf of the board who was in agreement and suggested they call a Special Town Meeting within the next few weeks for this specific issue. The Advisory Finance Committee shared their support. \nArticle 15 sought to create a Finance Department by modifying the town accountant’s title to finance director. He will be charged with coordinating the activities of the Treasurer/Collector\, Assessing and Accounting departments. The primary reason for this change is to address the needs of a municipality the size of Westborough. This Article passed 106 to 8 without discussion. \nArticle 16 sought funding for the new finance director’s position. This will be accomplished by the transfer of $9\,776 from the Treasurer/Collector Salary/Wages Account to Finance Director Salary/Wage Account. Again\, without discussion\, this passed 103 to 7. \nTown Meeting concluded deliberations and adjourned later in the evening.

Southborough artist Catherine M. Weber\, a force behind the exhibit\, commented\, “This four-month exhibition of site-specific art at Beal’s Preserve has attracted hundreds of people\, many who would otherwise not have known about this precious local resource.” \nA full color\, 5.5 by 8.5 inch catalogue of the exhibit’s art and poetry is available for $15\, plus tax and shipping. Proceeds will go towards future Art on the Trails in Southborough. \nWeber and Southborough’s Mary M. Tinti\, former curator of the Fitchburg Art Museum\, collaborated with the Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) to bring original art to the Elaine and Philip Beals Preserve\, from June 3 – Sept. 24. \nThe Beals Preserve is a 55-acre track owned by SOLF\, located on Main Street across from Chestnut Hill Road. \nA series of events were held\, including a closing ceremony\, “Poetry Walk\,” on Sept. 24\, during which authors read their ekphrastic poems\, which are reflections on the artwork. State Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) and Weber both also spoke at the event. \nAlgonquin senior Radek Jaster\, who lives in Northborough\, has created a moving 4 minute video of this closing event\, found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HV-C5PceytI. \n“Art On the Trails” featured 15 pieces by the following artists: Gregory Barry\, Crystal Blanchflower (Ashburnham)\, Freedom Baird (Cambridge)\, Linda Hoffman (Harvard)\, Bill Cohn (Lexington) Lydia Musco (Royalston)\, Lisa Barthelson ( Rutland)\, Chelsea Bradway\, Hadley Horner\, Catherine M. Weber (Southborough)\, and Aneliese Ruggles (West Newton). \nCohn installed four cairns\, created using rocks and ceramic castings of rocks\, threaded through lightning rods. While these works look natural at first\, on second glance\, their artistry is apparent. \n“Intention Port” by Baird is another natural-looking installation; on closer inspection\, the perfectly symmetrical entrance in the woods is visible. \nHung high up on a branch\, a curtain of little mirrors—moving and sparkling with sun and wind—is Bradway’s “All Things Sparkly.” \nWestborough poet Maura Snell and Hopkinton poet Cynthia Franca selected 24 original poems by 13 authors. According to a press release\, “Each poem speaks to the unique experience the poet has in connecting with the art and each art piece…” \nThe poets included: Carla Schwartz (Framingham)\, Cynthia Franca (Hopkinton)\, Trisha Knudsen\, Michele Mendelson (Northborough)\, Moira Linehan (Reading)\, Kiera Akus\, Chelsea Bradway\, Lawrence Spezzano\, Catherine M. Weber (Southborough)\, Lisa Breger (Wayland)\, Mary Pinard (Roslindale)\, Maura Snell (Westborough)\, and Brian Bogosian (Worcester). \nTo order the catalogue\, and for more information\, visit www.artonthetrails.com. \n URL:http://www.communityadvocate.com/2017/10/19/southboroughs-art-on-the-trails-finishes-successful-first-season/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://www.communityadvocate.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Art-on-the-trails-rsa.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTSTAMP:20171019T200619 CREATED:20171019T191634Z LAST-MODIFIED:20171019T191634Z UID:95148-1508429179-1508429179@www.communityadvocate.com SUMMARY:Home Instead Senior Care celebrates 20th anniversary DESCRIPTION:(l to r) Karen Chapman\, president\, Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce; John Coderre\, Northborough town administrator; Angela Bartlett\, general manager\, Home Instead Senior Care; and Home Instead Senior Care owners Bruce and Laurie Bender.

DESCRIPTION:Michelle Gillespie\, RealtorLeading Edge AgentDirect Line: 508-934-9818 michelle@michellegillespie.comwww.michellegillespie.comBerkshire Hathaway HomeServices N.E. Prime PropertiesIndependently owned and operated. \nAutumn in New England is the second best time of the year to sell a home. Moderate temperatures and the beauty of the season help everyone to relax. Families are back from summer vacations\, the kids have gone back to school\, football season has begun and the holidays are still a safe distance away. \nThe fall real estate market has arrived and the buyers are looking for homes to purchase. To prepare your home for sale this fall\, let me suggest some strategies to get the most out of your property. From cosmetic to strategic\, smart sellers can take advantage of a few simple tips to help close the deal. \n  \nCreate Autumn Curb Appeal \nLook and evaluate your home as if you were a buyer. This is possibly the most important step to ensure that your house sells for a reasonable price. Do as much as possible to improve the home’s appearance: touch up the paint\, fix leaks\, and make any necessary repairs. \nRake dead leaves and debris off of your lawn. Cut away summer vines and dead flowers. Plant some fall mums and marigolds; yellow is a home-selling color. Accent the flowers with pumpkins. Your windows need to sparkle. Wash windows inside and out and remove screens to let in the most light possible. \nStart to pack and de-clutter\, remember\, your goal is to sell your house and move onto your new home. \n  \nPricing for a Reasonable\, Profitable Listing \nThe greatest challenge for every home seller and one that I can help you meet is pricing your home. \nAs a seller\, strategic planning is essential for selling a home. A professional estimation of a selling price will be extremely valuable. For example\, a carefully prepared competitive market analysis can show how your house compares to others for sale in your area. \nWith many years of experience\, I can objectively evaluate your home’s location\, condition\, and size. Properly priced homes will sell quickly. As your Realtor I will work with you to determine what that price should be. In the end I will negotiate with a buyer on your behalf to ensure a good\, reasonable market price. \n  \nWhat are the Market Conditions? \nThe market conditions for this fall are fantastic! The inventory is low\, prices continue to increase and I am seeing multiple offers on my listings. People are relocating to this area\, couples are downsizing and families are buying up. With current interest rates remaining low\, financing is available for qualified buyers. Buyers are in a good position to purchase a home – why not yours? \n  \nLet My Marketing Plan Work for You \nNinety percent of homebuyers begin their search on the Internet. My state-of-the-art website will provide you with the information you need: you can view houses online\, receive updates via email\, and make use of the many links to helpful tools. To showcase your home online\, I will arrange to have professional photos of your home taken and then included on many other real estate websites. In addition to Internet marketing\, I provide my clients with print marketing and direct mailing to ensure as much coverage for their listing as possible. \n  \nMake the Most of the Fall Season \nThe inventory is low and buyers are out there looking for homes to purchase. Let’s maximize first impressions and attract the most buyers by following the tips in this article. \nIf you want to sell your home this fall\, let me help you stage\, prepare and sell your home. \n  \nCall me\, Michelle Gillespie\, at… 508-934-9818 or email… michelle@michellegillespie.com.

Whitcomb Middle School\, 25 Union St.\, Marlborough. The cost is $35 per car or truck load. \nSince the fall of 2011\, the Marlborough Rotary Club created a one-day project for folks to recycle all their unwanted computers\, electronics\, appliances\, and more. The event is open to all communities and is focused on recycling household items rather than adding these items in the landfills. \nAlmost everything that has been sitting around in your attic\, basement\, or garage can be recycled at this event. Items include electronics\, electrical equipment\, car batteries\, large appliances\, lawn equipment\, metal toys\, yard furniture\, and televisions. \nUnacceptable items include wood\, plastic\, tires\, mattresses\, textiles\, hoses\, glass\, or pool liners. \n“We have been so excited about this event!” remarked Elaine McDonald who started the event. “This project benefits everyone involved for a very low cost.

James E. Hazelwood (Photo/submitted) \nMarlborough -The Rev. James E. Hazelwood\, Bishop of the New England Synod\, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)\, will be the guest preacher at Saint Stephen Lutheran Church in Marlborough Oct. 22. The 9:30 a.m. Sunday communion service will celebrate the church’s 50th anniversary of becoming a congregation\, and takes place 50 years to the day after the organization service. Visitors are invited and welcome to attend. \nIn addition to the anniversary commemoration\, there will be a thanksgiving during the service for the retirement of a debt\, said Pastor Graumann. \n“Saint Stephen Lutheran Church has successfully paid off the mortgage on its fellowship hall\, and we are celebrating that as well\,” he explained. \nSpecial music will also characterize the service\, notes Stan Hanson\, music director.

The process began with an interest meeting attended by about a dozen people\, but the number swelled to 100 by the time the first worship service was held in October 1966. On Oct. 22\, 1967\, the church was officially organized with a rite of organization during a worship service\, and the acceptance of 135 baptized members into the new congregation.

(Photo/Norm Corbin) \nNorthborough – Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is being used at Northborough’s historic Brigham Street Burial Ground to identify the burial locations of Northborough’s ancestors. GPR has been successfully used by many communities for this purpose. The Brigham Street Burial Ground was used between 1727 and 1749\, when Northborough was still part of Westborough. There are currently only a few remaining gravestones that mark specific burial sites within the three-acre property. \nInitial GPR results reveal many more burial locations than currently identified with headstones. This is in agreement with the work of Beth Finch McCarthy\, a local genealogist\, who by using old town documents and diaries\, has documented that at least 40 citizens are buried there. The final GPR report is expected by Wednesday\, Nov. 1. \nThe GPR data collection is being conducted by Ground Penetrating Radar Systems\, Inc.\, as a subcontractor to Capital Environmental\, LLC. This project is funded by Northborough’s Community Preservation Act. \n URL:http://www.communityadvocate.com/2017/10/18/searching-for-northboroughs-ancestors/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://www.communityadvocate.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N-radar-rs.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTSTAMP:20171019T200619 CREATED:20171019T005156Z LAST-MODIFIED:20171019T005156Z UID:95047-1508429179-1508429179@www.communityadvocate.com SUMMARY:Rep. Kane supports effort to reimburse cities and towns for early voting costs DESCRIPTION:Region – State Representative Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury) is backing a proposal to reimburse cities and towns for the costs associated with the implementation of the state’s early voting law during the November 2016 state election cycle. \nThe proposal\, which was sponsored by the House Republican Leadership\, was adopted unanimously by the House of Representatives as an amendment to the $123.2 million final deficiency supplemental budget for Fiscal Year 2017. A vote by the state Senate is still required before the measure can be sent to Governor Charlie Baker for his signature. \n“The introduction of early voting in Massachusetts required a significant investment of time and resources by our cities and towns\,” Kane said. “I’m proud to support this effort to compensate the communities of the Eleventh Worcester District for all the work they did to ensure that the process ran smoothly\, and voters could more suitably and expediently participate in casting their ballot.” \nApproved by the Legislature in 2014\, the Massachusetts early voting law allows registered voters to cast a ballot as early as 11 business days prior to Election Day\, and up to two business days before the election\, every two years as part of the biennial state elections. The law was first implemented for the November 2016 statewide election\, when more than 1 million early votes were cast. \nIn February of 2017\, State Auditor Suzanne Bump ruled that some of the expenses incurred by municipalities to implement the early voting law constituted an unfunded mandate\, and suggested these costs should be borne by the commonwealth. \nThe language adopted by the House sets aside $485\,559 to reimburse cities and towns for costs that have previously been certified by the Division of Local Mandates within the state auditor’s office.  Municipalities will have until Sunday\, Dec. 31\, to apply for the funding. \nThe spending bill now moves to the Senate for further action. \n URL:http://www.communityadvocate.com/2017/10/18/rep-kane-supports-effort-to-reimburse-cities-and-towns-for-early-voting-costs/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTSTAMP:20171019T200619 CREATED:20171019T004506Z LAST-MODIFIED:20171019T004506Z UID:95043-1508429179-1508429179@www.communityadvocate.com SUMMARY:Breast cancer survivor commits to find the cause DESCRIPTION:By Ed Karvoski Jr.\, Contributing Writer \nDru Lindgren (Photo/submitted) \nSouthborough – Two-time breast cancer survivor Dru Lindgren of Southborough is committed to finding what causes the disease. She serves as assistant executive director of the Find the Cause Breast Cancer Foundation\, formerly known as Art beCAUSE. While the name recently changed\, its mission continues to fund scientific research on the environmental causes of breast cancer and educate the public on prevention. \nThe nonprofit organization based in Framingham was co-founded 17 years ago by Eleanor Anbinder and Joyce Crieger\, who formerly owned an art gallery. A portion of the gallery sales were donated to Art beCAUSE. The organization changed its name this past July to Find the Cause. Lindgren became aware of the organization soon after her second diagnosis. \n“I knew the right direction for me was everything that Ellie and the scientists they funded were doing\,” she said. “I wanted to be part of helping to create a safer world for my children.” \nLindgren was diagnosed with breast cancer when she went for her routine mammogram in 2009. She was treated with lumpectomy and radiation. Her 2011 mammogram resulted with a second breast cancer diagnosis. She underwent a mastectomy. \nThe diagnoses were a surprise to Lindgren because she had no family history of breast cancer. That common occurrence was the first lesson she learned while attending the organization’s fundraising gala. \n“The most impactful statement I heard the first time I went to an Art beCAUSE event was that 90 percent of all people diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history\,” she relayed. “You hear that statistic a lot. Now that I’m out there and advocating\, it’s the first question I ask and most of the time the answer is no family history.” \nAfter treatment\, Lindgren became involved with the organization and educated herself on the environmental causes of breast cancer. She joined the organization’s board of directors in 2014 and chaired its gala in 2015. She began as assistant executive director in 2016. \n“I did everything I could do under my control to figure out how to best become healthy by what I put in and on my body\,” she explained. \nLindgren is also sharing lessons learned with her husband and their three children. \n“I do everything in my power to have the same kind of impact on their bodies\,” she said. “They’ve been wonderfully receptive considering that I’ve completely changed the way they eat and all the products we use in our house. They get the message. I have two children that are out of the house now\, so they do their own shopping and complain how expensive organic is. They’re very aware of the impact that food has on them. Now\, my kids are educating their friends.” \nFind the Cause held a breakfast Oct. 3 at the Boston Marriott Newton. Lindgren appreciates the message of its guest speaker\, environmental activist Erin Brockovich. \nLindgren noted\, “Erin said that we can’t find a cure until we know the cause.” \nFor more information\, visit findthecausebcf.org and on Facebook at facebook.com/findthecausebcf. \n URL:http://www.communityadvocate.com/2017/10/18/breast-cancer-survivor-commits-to-find-the-cause/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://www.communityadvocate.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/S-Dru-Lindgren-rs.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTSTAMP:20171019T200619 CREATED:20171019T003504Z LAST-MODIFIED:20171019T003548Z UID:95037-1508429179-1508429179@www.communityadvocate.com SUMMARY:Marlborough students come together to help hurricane victims DESCRIPTION:Jessica Pereira (left) and Meaghan Douglas ready to hang donation posters \nMarlborough – In response to the recent Hurricane Harvey disaster\, 1Lt.

He has been playing the electric guitar – his favorite\, a Gibson Les Paul – for a mere two years and already he has mastered what many who have studied for years to achieve. In addition\, he plays a bit of piano\, bass\, drums and sings. \nA third-grader at the Raymond C. Richer Elementary School in Marlborough\, Lincoln is very well known and recognizable among his peers for his signature blue hair and musical talent. \nHe has played with a punk band called The Prozacs from western Mass.\, Maryland-based band All Time Low\, and this past August\, he was called up on the stage where Green Day was performing. Billie Joe Armstrong\, one of the lead singers\, encouraged Lincoln to join him in singing the song\, “Long View.” By the time the song had ended\, the crowd was shouting Lincoln’s name. He dove into the audience and was passed back to his seat. \n“I was so nervous and was just trying to listen to Billie Joe tell me what he wanted me to do on the stage. He even had me climb a few steps and then jump down. I remember hearing the crowd cheer my name\,” Lincoln recalled. \n“This is what he loves to do and he is really passionate about it. He would play music morning and night\,” said Tony Zinzola\, Lincoln’s father. \nLincoln loves going to concerts to get inspiration and most recently went to Providence to see The Descendents perform. \nLincoln met Marlborough students Matthew Hiltz and Nate Dalbec at a week-long summer camp program\, The School of Rock\, run by the Rock Institute in Marlborough. \nWhat formed out of their meeting was a band that they perform in together called\, Color Killer. \nMatthew plays the drums; Nate plays the bass guitar and sings. Lincoln also plays the guitar and sings. The boys practice twice on the weekends to hone their craft and get ready for upcoming performances. They have played at several venues\, including Ralph’s Diner in Worcester\, and will be performing at The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN) on Friday\, Oct. 20. The Berklee College of Music Summer Program sponsors the program\, Rock Off Main Street. \nNate’s uncle\, Aaron\, has been a touring musician for 25 years with the punk rock band\, Bane. \n“When the boys complain that a song is too hard\, we remind them to stick with it and typically\, this song ends up becoming one of their signature songs\,” said Nate’s father\, Jake Dalbec. \n“We practice really hard and love doing the shows for people. It’s not always easy to get along with each other especially if someone is offbeat\,” Matthew said. \nIn the future\, the boys would all like to continue with music and performing. \n“I am going to go to Berklee in Boston to study music and be a professional musician\,” Lincoln said. \nFor more information or to view the video of Lincoln with Green Day\, visit www.facebook.com/ColorKillerBand/; www.facebook.com/LincolnRocksMA/; or \nwww.youtube.com/c/LincolnRocks. \nLincoln Zinzola (center) with Nate Dalbec (left) and Matthew HiltzPhoto/Nance Ebert \n URL:http://www.communityadvocate.com/2017/10/18/eight-year-old-marlborough-musician-rocks-with-green-day/ ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://www.communityadvocate.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/M-Lincoln-rocks-2-rs.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20171019T160619 DTSTAMP:20171019T200619 CREATED:20171018T162051Z LAST-MODIFIED:20171018T162126Z UID:95017-1508429179-1508429179@www.communityadvocate.com SUMMARY:Vigil offers support for victims of domestic abuse DESCRIPTION:Joanne Tyndall and Michael Tozeski \nBy Jerry Callaghan\, Contributing Writer \nShrewsbury – Once again the bells rang. Once again candles were lit.  And once again\, the citizens of Shrewsbury came together to show support for victims of domestic violence at a candle light vigil sponsored by ADVISE. \nHeld Oct. 11 on the Shrewsbury Town Common\, the vigil sought to bring light to the problem of domestic violence. \nAs the organization states on its website\, “The goal of ADVISE is to break the cycle of domestic violence by working together with the community\, through education\, intervention\, and support. ADVISE works closely with the Shrewsbury Police Department\, Shrewsbury Community Services\, and other agencies and organizations.” \nSince January of this year\, 19 Massachusetts residents have lost their lives to domestic violence – the youngest victim only six years old. \nMultiple speakers at the vigil spoke of the help available for victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence. \nLt. Gov. Karyn Polito spoke of the Baker-Polito administration’s decision to look at the opioid problem in Massachusetts not as an addiction problem but as a health epidemic.  She said the same is needed when looking at the problem of domestic violence. \n“It is a health epidemic\,” she said. “We need to help individuals in these dark places.” \nRev. Andrew Heisen of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Shrewsbury spoke of “walking with those who need to find services.” \n“You will be believed\,” he added. “Victims don’t have to do that alone.” \nFor more information on ADVISE\, call 508-842-0056 or visit shrewsburyma.gov/438/ADVISE-Domestic-Violence-Education. \nJulie Nason and Joanne Tyndall \nMichael Tozeski \nLt.
