Marlborough – The City Council has asked Mayor Arthur Vigeant to move forward with the proposal to equip local police and firefighters with Narcan, a drug commonly used to help counter the effects of heroin overdoses. At the recommendation of the Human Services Committee, presented at the March 24 meeting, councilors requested the mayor to act immediately to acquire the necessary funding to begin training.

In making a plea to the council at the February 24 meeting, Councilor-at-Large Mark Oram introduced the idea of first responders administering Narcan to those having a drug overdose while waiting for paramedics to arrive at the scene. Oram said that heroin overdoses have increased throughout the area and this action can help prevent many possible deaths.

Marlborough – Marlborough resident Debbie Whitmore is proof that life can change in an instant. In 2011, she was working as a nurse, raising four boys, and starting a new exercise program. Within a few months, she was diagnosed with incurable Stage IV colorectal cancer.

Whitmore, at 44, noticed she was finding herself more tired and out of breath than she thought normal. She also had an unusual craving for ice.

“My friends and I joked about it,” Whitmore recalled. “I was always eating popsicles.”
