Northborough ??" Ask Rev. Cynthia Maybeck, the outgoing minister at Trinity Church in Northborough, what she means by Biblical Storytelling, and she's quick to come with an example: Recounting Mark 5:25, she tells the story of a woman healed by touching Christ's garment. At times, miming actions of the woman, gesturing with her arms outstretched, her voice flows naturally – speaking conversationally and dramatically, and ending the passage with a small and humble smile. It's easy to see how a listener could feel transported to a time 2,000 years ago.

Northborough – Shortly after Julie Booras, owner of Heart & Stone Jewelry, opened her studio in Northborough, she realized she had a problem. Although her store was located in the up-and-coming shopping district near the intersection of Route 20 and West Main Street, she found it cumbersome to explain where her store was located, as the area was lacking an identity of its own.

Northborough - After attending Loyola University for two years, 2010 Algonquin Regional High School graduate Daniel Polanowicz decided to forgo another year at the traditional college. Instead, he decided that being an officer in the military was his calling, and that West Point was the best place to pursue his goal. He gained admission to the elite academy, one of the most prestigious educational establishments in the nation, which boasts astronauts, generals, business leaders and even U.S. presidents as graduates. The United States Military Academy at West Point ranks fourth in the nation for its production of Rhodes scholars, so by any standard, it is a significant accomplishment to gain acceptance to the school.
