Marlborough – Ken Torris first saw curling in 1998 while watching the winter Olympics that year. Nearly 20 years later, he and a group of Metrowest-area curlers have partnered to create the Marlboro Curling Club.

Based at the New England Sports Center, the Marlboro Curling Club aims to further the sport of curling in a part of Massachusetts that currently lacks a local club. Torris hopes to build a community of curlers that will ultimately help expand the sport and bring high level competition to the area.

A friend and advocate is remembered in Marlborough

August 11th, 2016

Patti Foti’s sons, Christopher (l) and Anthony, stand next to gazebo dedicated to their mother.

Marlborough – Patti Foti, her friends agreed, knew how to get things done. As a proud Marlborough resident, home health aide and caregiver, she was an advocate for those who needed assistance, especially senior citizens in the community. In a firm but gentle way, she let city officials know what needed to be done and held them accountable. When she passed away unexpectedly at age 63 in March, her death left a huge hole in the hearts of many.

On Aug. 10, her family, along with her friends and neighbors in the Bolton Street apartments where she lived for the past year, gathered to not mourn, they said, but to celebrate her life. The ceremony was also a dedication for a special gazebo and recreational area on the property named in her honor.

Marlborough – When the Marlborough City Council meets for their bi-weekly meetings, they can have at times up to 200 pages of written documentation for review. That can result in almost 2,000 pages being printed out for each meeting.

To help reduce that cost, City Councilor Matt Elder has suggested that the council use electronic technology such as smartphones and tablets and websites such as Google Drive and Dropbox instead.
