Beginning in June 2016, the Marlborough Police Department began an investigation involving possible illegal sexual activities at the Relaxation Massage business located at 167 East Main Street Marlborough. Several complaints and anonymous tips were received by the department and as a result of this investigation, detectives acquired more specific information regarding these activities occurring at this establishment. On June 23, 2016 an undercover police officer entered the Relaxation Massage and was offered a sexual act in exchange for cash. As a result, detectives arrested 55 year old Rui Jiang and charged her with offering sexual conduct for a fee.
Investigations involving illegal sexual activities occurring in the City of Marlborough are important to the members of this department and the residents of the City. As a result, the Marlborough Police Department will continue to conduct compliance checks throughout the city at similar business which offer these services. The partnership which develops between the departments and the residents of the community is essential in successfully combating these types of illegal activities in our communities. The Marlborough Police Department welcomes any information residents can provide to assist in these efforts.
Shrewsbury – Kara Frankian, a first and second grade teacher at the Floral Street School, was recently named as the first recipient of the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society’s Champion of Environmental Literacy Award for her work in helping to utilize a nature trail behind the school into her students’ curriculum.
The half-mile loop of trail and boardwalk that meanders through the schoolyard’s wetland and woodland area was built over nearly two decades with the help of local Eagle Scouts and community volunteers.
Each week Frankian’s class spends time on the trail tracking changes and incorporating their findings into their studies in a variety of ways. The students even created QR codes to present their findings to fellow students and their families during the school’s recent annual environmental celebration, Floral Goes Green.

He completed his elementary and high school education in Flushing, N.Y. He went on to the Institution of Applied Arts and Sciences at the State University of New York, where he earned a two-year Electrical Technology diploma. During college, he enlisted in the Navy Reserve.
After graduating from college, Donald was self-employed as a radio and TV repair technician. With a 1-A Selective Service rating, no one would hire him. In 1950, he enlisted in the USN and did his Boot Camp and ET Training in NAVSTA Great Lakes, Il. He finished ET Training number 2 of 41 in his class.
His sea duty assignment was on the USS Chilton, APA-38 out of Norfolk, Va. with operations in the Mediterranean. He served as an ET maintaining the comm. equipment required to coordinate the fleet activities during amphibious assaults.
After Don’s sea duty, he finished out his Navy career on shore duty in Morocco, Africa as a Petty Officer 1st Class, responsible for installing RADAR and Missile Guidance Systems. In 1954, the USN’s participation in the Korean Conflict was waning and the USN was looking for volunteers to retire. He was honorably discharged in 1954 with recommendation to re-enlist, giving him a period of time to return to the USN at the same rank as he left.
He continued on as a RADAR and Missile Guidance Technician in the private sector with Sperry and GE. He started in the Bahamas, then Fairbanks and Anchorage, Alaska. They were followed by stints in Seattle, Wash.; Portland, Ore., and his very favorite location, Cheyenne, Wyo., where he met his wife, Kathleen. They married in Kathleen’s home town of Syracuse, N.Y. in 1960. His last missile guidance installation was in Lompoc, Calif.
He transferred within GE to the Computer Field Engineering Division, which had him moving everywhere, including; Syracuse, N.Y.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Fort Poke, La., and Phoenix, Ariz. In 1971, Honeywell purchased the Field Engineering Division from GE which settled him and his family in Hudson, and where he and Kathleen raised Gerard, Michele, and Michael. He finished his career at Honeywell and took early retirement. To keep himself busy, he worked for Waters as an electronics engineer and machinist.
He shared his wisdom gained from his diverse life experiences with all four generations of family. Everyone he knew had heard every story at least once. His stories always had a different segue to hook one in, but always ended with a moral to it. Live by the “Golden Rule.”
Funeral services will be private.
In lieu of flowers, please donate in his name to Overlook VNA & Hospice, 88 Masonic Home Rd., Charlton, MA 01507.]]>
