Governor Vows to Amend Passed Casino/Racino Bill


BOSTON – Sunday, August 1, 2010 – The following is a statement from Governor Deval Patrick:

“I want to congratulate the Senate President, the Speaker and the members of the Senate and House for a very successful and productive legislative session. In this session, the Legislature enacted sweeping pension, ethics and lobbying, transportation and education reform bills; addressed health insurance for people with autism, texting while driving and bullying in schools; widened the buffer zone around women’s health clinics and improved nutrition for school kids.

“And in just the last few days and hours, they enacted significant tools to help small businesses lower their health insurance premiums and gain access to capital, passed CORI reform and moved forward a measure to make siting wind turbines more straightforward. They have delivered responsible, balanced and on-time budgets, all in the midst of the worst economy in living memory. We even have a sales tax holiday to look forward to in a couple of weeks.

“I mention these measures because this legislative work will make a lasting difference in the lives of Commonwealth residents. By any measure, this has been a productive session. Some of that gets lost in all the attention paid to the gaming debate, but I thank the Legislature for all their good work.

“We have not resolved the gaming issue. Our positions are well stated and understood. I still believe that we are best served by no more than three destination resort casinos, where we get more jobs and more revenue, and not by racinos or slot parlors that bring more social harm than they do benefits. I also believe it is wrong to favor the interests of track owners over those of the Commonwealth as a whole.

“When I receive the final bill enacted by the Legislature, I will send it back with an amendment to address these problems. I call on the Legislature to accept the amendment promptly so that we can provide the good jobs at better wages and benefits that we all agree are available in destination resort casinos. Had they done so two years ago, when I first proposed it, thousands of workers in the building trades and in other fields would be working today. Let’s not let any more time pass without action.”

Drowning at Hopkinton State Park

July 31, 2010 — According to Ashland Police Department public Information Officer, Lt. Richard Briggs, a thirty-five year-old Westford man was pronounced deceased after being rushed to MetroWest Medical Center, after drowning in the main beach at the park, which is in Ashland. Ashland Fire Department received a 911 call at 5:41 pm, according to Ashland Fire Lt. Morghan.

       "The lifeguards found the man in six feet of water and used CPR until our officers arrived," Lt. Briggs said. "They also used a defibrillator they had on hand."

       Ashland and Hopkinton Fire Department personnel in the Ashland ambulance tried to revive the man before leaving for the hospital. At one point, a Hopkinton firefighter came out of the side door shaking his head side to side, as the hundreds of beachgoers waiting for news were told by a DCR employee that the park was closed.

       According to witnesses at the Main Beach where the tragedy occurred, the man's father-in-law called from the water for help in finding his daughter's husband. The lifeguards cleared the water, and after the passing of several minutes, according to witnesses at the scene, formed a chain and searched for the man.

      According to witnesses, after finding the man, who the witnesses described as Hindu, the lifeguards brought him to shore and performed lifesaving measures, while being crowded by curious beachgoers until public safety personnel arrived.

       Ashland and Hopkinton Fire and Police, as well as State Police, Environmental Police and DCR responded to the call for help.

      This is the second drowning at Hopkinton State Park this year. The first one occurred on May 23 at the Upper Beach. Both beaches are located in the Ashland part of the park, where the bulk of the land mass is situated.

Framingham Doctor Sentenced On Rape And Indecent Assault And Battery Charges


WOBURNA Framingham man has been sentenced after a jury found him guilty of rape, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone informed the public today.

           Manuel Raagas, 63, of Framingham was found guilty by a jury on charges of rape, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 (2 counts) and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 (2 counts).

           Middlesex Superior Court Judge Leila Kern sentenced the defendant to 5 to 7 years in state prison followed by 5 years probation with the conditions that he register as a sex offender, participate in sex offender evaluations and follow requirements, has no contact with the victim or witnesses, provide a DNA sample, and comply with GPS monitoring device.  

“The defendant's crimes are disturbing especially since he held a position of trust within the community given his position as a medical physician,” District Attorney Leone said. “While we don’t have any indication that any of the defendant’s patients were assaulted, the Jury’s just verdict ensures that he will not be in a position with access to any child under the age of 18.  We thank the victim for bravely coming forward to reveal the defendant’s criminal actions.”

According the authorities, the defendant began sexually assaulting the victim in 1997.  Initially, the sexual assaults involved groping the victim and this pattern of sexual abuse continued to occur through a period of years.  In 2001, the defendant’s actions escalated to raping the victim.

            The defendant was indicted by a Middlesex Grand Jury on June 26, 2008. He was arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on September 18, 2008, where he was released on personal recognizance with the conditions that he has no contact with the victim.

The prosecutor assigned to this case is Assistant District Attorney Katelyn Draper.  The victim witness advocate is Susan Marshall.

Volunteer drivers needed for the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery®

(Weston, MA) - July 29, 2010 — The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program is in great need of volunteers to drive local cancer patients to and from their chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments, especially in need are patients receiving treatment in Boston. An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure cancer patients receive their treatments, but many find making transportation arrangements is a challenge. The American Cancer Society provided more than 8,100 rides to cancer patients in Massachusetts last year, but needs new volunteer drivers to keep up with the demand for transportation.

“Due to the increasing amount of transportation requests, we have a genuine need for Road to Recovery drivers, especially those willing to drive to Boston hospitals,” said Lynn Basilio, Area Director for Health Initiatives. “We are hoping that local communities will continue to support this valuable program by volunteering their time to help increase the number of rides we are able to provide.”

You too can make a difference in the fight against cancer is by becoming a driver for the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery. Drivers use their own vehicle to drive patients to and from their treatments. The schedule for volunteers is flexible, treatment appointments take place weekdays, primarily during business hours. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a volunteer driver for Road to Recovery, please contact your American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit


TAPS VIGIL AT Mount Auburn Cemetery

THIS SUNDAY, 1 August 2010

       Please join the Hopkinton Veteran’s Celebration Committee this Sunday at the flagpole in front of the Mount Auburn Cemetery as we join thousands of communities across America for a remembrance ceremony. The Committee is hosting a “Sunday Taps Vigil” starting at 7pm. The ceremony will consist of a short tribute to American soldiers, veterans and their families and is expected to last 15 minutes. The ceremony will include the sounding of the 24 hauntingly beautiful notes of “Taps”.

      “Taps” traditionally serves two important purposes. At military outposts around the world it is played in the evening to signal time for quiet, rest and reflection after a day of duty. It is also mandated by the Department of Defense to be sounded live by a bugler, if possible, at the funeral of each and every American veteran as a final tribute to that veteran’s honorable time of service to his or her country.

       Hopkinton has held this ceremony, on the first Sunday each month, since it was initiated in March 2004 by the national non-profit organization Bugles Across America. Since the Ceremony was first proposed over 1,500 communities across America as well as in Canada and several other countries now participate.

       Please share the date, time and location of our next Taps Vigil with anyone you feel would like to honor the service that veterans have and are giving for all of us.

New Approach to Alzheimer’s


July 28, 2010 — Senior Living Residences (SLR), a Massachusetts-based assisted living company, has announced the opening of Compass at Golden Pond in Hopkinton offering research-based treatment for the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in a residential-style assisted living setting. Compass at Golden Pond is located within the well-established Golden Pond Assisted Living campus in Hopkinton on West Main Street just off Routes 495. Compass at Golden Pond will serve seniors throughout the metro west area of Massachusetts, including the towns of Hopkinton, Marlboro, Framingham, Southborough, Westborough, Northborough, Ashland, Upton, Milford, Shrewsbury, as well as the Worcester area.


SLR’s Compass Memory Support takes a completely new approach in the assisted living industry by treating the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Compass at Golden Pond serves individuals with diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease and other memory related disorders, as well as those individuals exhibiting the early symptoms of memory loss – often diagnosed as Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). MCI is marked by memory loss and mild confusion, and is often described as the stage between forgetfulness associated with normal aging and Alzheimer’s disease. Attentive family members may notice the early warning signs of memory loss or dementia: repeating questions; unnecessary worrying about small matters; difficulty following medication instructions; misplacing or not paying bills; and reduced interest in socializing and hobbies. SLR’s innovative research-based programs are designed to treat this group of seniors, and potentially delay the progression of their dementia. ~ Contributed content

Selectmen Approve Fees Increase

Library Contract Signed

by Derek Dobachesky

July 28, 2010 — The Hopkinton Board of Selectmen approved a fee increase for the Town Clerk’s office and announced that a contract had been signed transferring ownership of the library property to the town at its Tuesday meeting.

                During the brief meeting—which began 30 minutes late at 7 p.m. and ended at 8:33 p.m.—the Board of Selectmen also heard from Town Manager Norman Khumalo and Board of Selectmen Chairman RJ Dourney on the status of ongoing work in the Massachusetts General Court on proposed casino gambling legislation.

                Town Clerk Ann Click and Khumalo described the process they used to arrive at the decision to increase fees at the Town Clerk’s office. The process, according to them, involved determining the full cost of a service using a formula approved by the Massachusetts state government, which Khumalo developed. The fees for a service are then compared to those in surrounding towns, as well as the more specific aspects of each service — how it is delivered, the quality of the service, etc.

                “Any fee is not an income stream — rather, it is a direct reflection of the cost to the town of that service,” Dourney said, summarizing Khumalo’s description of the process.

                Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Todd Cestari questioned why it appeared had been relatively high over the last two fiscal years. Khumalo explained that many fees had not been raised to reflect costs since 2004 and that, moving forward, fees would be raised annually so that each increase would not be as large.

                Following the Board of Selectmen’s pledge to communicate with the state’s General Court concerning proposed casino legislation and a possible resort casino development in Milford at its last meeting, Dourney and Khumalo met with town managers and selectmen chairs from Holliston and Ashland to discuss the issue. Following this meeting, Holliston submitted a letter on the towns’ behalf to members of a committee developing finalized legislation.

The Hopkinton Board of Selectmen also submitted its own letter urging the legislature to put geographic restrictions on any legislation which would prevent casinos from being built within 40 miles of one another. Considering the likelihood of casinos being built in Boston or Fall River, this would likely prevent a casino from being built in Milford.

The Board of Selectmen reconsidered its appointment of Joe Karner and Ron Eldridge to one-year terms on the Appropriation Committee, since the town’s bylaws only allow for three-year appointments. Both Karner and Eldridge want to retire after serving one more year. Since no new members were appointed, Karner and Eldridge will serve in the interim, while the Board of Selectmen seeks out new candidates for the Committee.

The Board of Selectmen will meet next on Tuesday, August 3 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 215 at the Town Hall.

My Summer Vacation...

July 27, 2010 — It's been an epic summer for the Barnes family.  They recently returned from a 3 week trip to Greece, where they travelled the length of the country by car and ferry. The highlight for the family, Robert Barnes and oldest son, J.R. was the hike they took up Mt. Olympus.  The elevation is approximately 9,600 feet  (Higher than Mt. Washington).  The rest of the group, 10 in all, made it to the Refuge at 6,500 feet where they spent the night.

       "This was definitely an event we will never forget," writes Karen Barnes

Golden Pond, Planning Board Dispute Responsibility Over Sidewalks

Owner frustrated over length of review process



by Muriel Kramer

July 27, 2010 — The Planning Board continued its Public Hearing on the expansion planned by Golden Pond. The issues discussed are largely the same issues that were entertained at the last meeting held July 12th.

Joe Marquedant, engineer for the applicant, introduced a draft of a new lighting plan, acknowledging during the presentation that vacation schedules had kept them from being able to present a finalized plan. The Board agreed to look at the information that was available, even though not finalized. The plan addressed the Planning Board’s request to minimize the lighting while considering the safety needs of the site. The most recent plan reduces the foot candle power across the site to no more than 2.4 in spots and most at under 2 by reducing the number of poles, changing pole locations and also lowering the pole heights from 22 feet to 15 feet. (File photos)

Planning Board member Carol DeVeuve asked if the new plan took into account the lighting on the building, a question that was discussed at the last meeting. Mr. Marquedant responded that their lighting engineer had assured them that the lighting on the buildings was negligible.

Planning Board member Claire Wright advocated for an even more conservative approach noting that the plan shows lighting along West Main Street and bordering the detention area that was higher than in the actual parking lot; on the whole however, she noted being pleased with the progress made with much of the lighting on site being reduced. Mrs. Wright advocated for a maximum of 1 foot candle across the site, noting that Liberty Mutual was adequately lit at ½ a foot candle across the site.

Kerry Kunst, owner of Golden Pond, made the point that their clients are elderly and need more light; he said that safety has to be the paramount consideration.

Attorney Davies asserted on behalf of the applicant that comparisons to other uses might not be appropriate. “This is a situation where people might not be comfortable with a dimly lit lot. If the lighting is not offensive, I would ask that you respect the applicant’s desire to provide lighting they feel adequate for their clients.”

John Coutinho, Planning Board member, supported the plan as submitted, noting that the plan responded to the Board’s request to reduce the foot candle power to the 2 foot range. “I don’t believe that ½ to 1 is suitable for this site. Concerns about vandalism and safety should be what we are looking for.”

Hopkinton Town Counsel, Ray Miyares, suggested the applicant provide technical rationale and documentation to support the lighting needs of the site agreeing that the town needs to be sensitive to the applicant’s desire to provide adequate lighting.

The discussion then centered on whether the applicant would agree to include a sidewalk along the property boundary and connecting the site to Lumber street Extension.

Acting as Chair for the meeting, Mark Abate asked , ”Is there any Board member that doesn’t believe that the applicant should provide the sidewalk connecting to the Lumber Street intersection.”

Richard MacDonald asked to what degree the Board could require an applicant to make improvements to adjacent properties with respect to the sidewalk.

Town Attorney Miyares said the Board could address issues regarding the convenience and safety of vehicular and pedestrian movement within the site and related to adjacent areas, as well as issues that are consistent with the Master Plan. Clarifying, he stated “When I say it’s alright, things have to be reasonably in proportion to the project. Sidewalks are within your authority as long as you are not requiring an unreasonable distance.” He went on to assert that reasonableness depends on whether the Board of Public Works is willing to contribute and support the process.

Citing the difficulties and expense associated with permitting, the necessity for a new ConCom filing, and his position that the applicant should not be responsible for a municipal project, Attorney Davies insisted that the issue of sidewalks on adjacent sites should not be a part of site plan review. “This is a small business trying to expand in a time of recession; this is not a time for a town that wants to be business friendly to come down hard on a business that wants to make an investment in expansion. Please do not hamper a business that wants to expand in Hopkinton with onerous requirements.”

Summarizing the issue for the Board and the Applicant, Attorney Miyares clarified that for the section of sidewalk heading west from the original property entrance that it would 1) behoove the Board to get some clarity on what the Board of Public Works is willing or able to contribute to support the sidewalk project and 2) be important to then understand if the applicant is willing to make the additional investment to make this happen. For the portion of the sidewalk heading east across the property, Miyares stated that this appeared to be close to an intractable problem. According to Miyares, the site plan review process is intended to approve with conditions unless there is an intractable problem; the applicant for their part needs to suggest a solution or present the issue as one essentially without a solution.

At the conclusion of the discussion, the applicant requested a quick continuance; unfortunately the Planning Board will not have 2 members at the August 9th meeting and won’t hold a meeting on August 23rd in order to accommodate vacation opportunities. The Public Hearing was continued to September 13th at 7:45 PM.

After the meeting, Mr. Kunst expressed frustration at the length of time the Public Hearing is taking with the Planning Board. The Applicant filed for Site Plan review on March 8th and has been before the Planning Board just three times having been bumped in June after being scheduled so the Board could expedite the process for Legacy Farms. Kunst had been hoping to wrap up the approval process over the summer and then work to arrange financing in the fall. He is additionally frustrated at the requirements being suggested for off-site work. “If you do all the work on the third lane [West Main St.] and the sidewalks off-site on property we don’t own, we’ll spend more money off site than on the property we do own.”

‘Lightning’ Strikes Thrice

Third Weekend of Extra OUI Enforcement Nets Dozen More Drunk Drivers; Weekly Saturation Patrols Also Busy With OUI Arrests


July 26, 2010 — Massachusetts State Police saturation patrols assigned to “Operation Lightning,” the department’s ongoing crack down of drunk and erratic drivers, arrested 12 impaired drivers this past weekend. The Lightning units – additional patrols that roll on Friday and Saturday nights on the department’s overnight shift – also made 11 misdemeanor arrests, issued eight criminal summonses, and wrote 270 citations for traffic violations.


The past weekend’s extra patrols were the third weekend of Operation Lightning, which consists of four additional patrols on the midnight shift in each of the department’s four geographic troops. Last week, Colonel Marian J. McGovern, commander of the Massachusetts State Police, announced that Operation Lightning will run at least through the summer.


The overall totals for the three weekends of Operation Lightning patrols, including those from this past weekend, are 36 impaired driving arrests, 25 other arrests, 23 summonses issued, and 533 traffic violation citations.


The State Police launched Operation Lightning earlier this month as part of its overall summer road safety strategy. The Lightning patrols, which complement regularly assigned field patrols, resume Friday night. MSP Photo. Contributed content.

Splash Down

July 26, 2010 — This cormorant, a diving bird, has an inelegant landing on Hopkinton Reservoir today. It's takeoff is more remarkable in that it "walks on water" to gain the speed it needs for flight. It dives incessantly, making it difficult to keep the needed oils on its feathers, necessitating the need for the bird to extend them to dry before flight, and to use the surface to overcome inertia.
