"Opportunity is Knocking" - Support for the New School



Hopkinton has to make a choice regarding the proposed elementary school and shift to neighborhood schools.  It’s a subject of great debate in town prompting excellent dialogue regarding how we move forward educationally.  At the height of this debate is the subject of neighborhood schools, parity, expenses and dispute over the feasibility study.  These are certainly excellent topics to discern and dissect; however, absent from the core of this discussion are our children, the students themselves. What is in their best interest, not just short term but long term?


Because Hopkinton has been “doing fine” shouldn’t be the impetus to close the doors on proposed educational opportunities if it potentially cultivates a better landscape for the future.  I’d like to see the discussion return to what is in our children’s best educational interest, long term.  How can we provide them the best advantage so they are well prepared to be successful both emotionally and academically by the time they reach middle school?  We need to keep the doors open to the possibilities.


A substantial body of new research demonstrates that smaller schools with broader grade spans (K-5 neighborhood schools) provide a stronger educational platform for success.  The emotional and academic benefits of fewer transitions are indisputable.  There isn’t a study demonstrating that what we currently have in place is superior over what is being proposed.


Additionally, I look to the Strategic Plan’s Steering Committee laden with Hopkinton Principals and staff/teachers supporting its effort.  I look to the HESBC Member listing and see the same.  The Center School Forums have the support of our educational leaders.  What is being proposed is in a student’s best interest long term.  And, getting there is exceedingly opportunistic given the current relationship we have cultivated with MSBA, which cannot be undermined.


I personally respect both points of view because it only leads to better solutions.  I am also mindful that accepting the proposal means change evoking many real and heartfelt emotions.  However, I feel we are progressively getting off track in our discussions, missing the forest for the trees.


Hopkinton is who we are because of our great history, people and families residing here.  We extend ourselves beyond our schools because we are incredibly active within our community through places of worship, scouting, after school activities, philanthropy, the arts, town sports and summer programs.  Our values, sense of community and appreciation for one another are what sustain us. This goes beyond our schools because it’s at the core of our community.


I hope we strive to respectfully honor both points of view ensuring the focus of this discussion be the students, creating the best educational opportunities for their academic and emotional success, long term


If this truly remains the focus of our discussions, Hopkinton will yield the best solution for every student because we all value a strong educational system that will continue to strengthen and sustain our vibrant community. 

The opportunity is present and knocking...

Planning Board Hat Trick

• Zoning change gets green light

• Quarry permit approved

• New Hiller's Cleaners approved

February 28, 2011 — This evening, the Planning Board approved the endorsement of a plan to alter zoning in the Downtown to facilitate the expansion of the Hopkinton Public Library, which will occur if it gets public and private funding, as well as grant approval. The board voted to put the zoning change proposals on the warrant and recommend their passage at the May Town Meeting.

     Minutes after the Library proponents left the room, representatives of the former Fletcher Quarry site (Above) on Lumber Street, Granites of America, walked in, sat down and in the first few minutes of their pitch for a new permit said that if the Library ever wanted to expand, they would need the granite from their quarry.

      After the laughter died down and the board informed them of the irony, CFO Annemarie Ramos (Photo) explained that many of the building in the Downtown were constructed with the "Milford Pink" granite from the Hopkinton site.

     However, the greatest use of the granite, said Mrs. Ramos, would be in the renovations to take place at the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall.

     After hearing that the Director of Municipal Inspections had given his blessing, and after assuring abutter Joe Marquedant that a piece of equipment would be screened, as well as getting satisfactory answers from an engineer on their behalf, the board approved a new earth removal permit for the quarry. The owners said they are anxious to get started.

     Hiller's Cleaners owner George Vrahliotios, after having satisfied questions from the board and his attorney Doug Resnick agreeing to conditions, received a unanimous approval for his Major Site Plan Review. He said he would like to begin construction as soon as possible, using the same company that put together Bill's Pizza.

A Debt to Next Generation

To the Editor:

The proposed new Fruit Street elementary school is an emotionally charged topic and it is understandable that people are passionate about it. When we moved to Hopkinton it was in large part because the town believed in and supported education - Hopkins was new and the High School was about to open. Ten years later the town has a new need – to replace Center School. Center School has many physical and structural limitations that inhibit teaching and learning. The MSBA will pay 43% of the proposed Fruit Street school’s cost, thus making it the most cost-effective solution. According to six different elected Hopkinton School Committees, our Administrators and various committees, it is also the best educational model for our students.


We understand that the change to neighborhood K-5 schools makes some residents anxious and in our hearts we do not want Hopkinton to district our elementary schools. But times have changed – graduating classes have grown to almost 300, not the small groups of 80 they once were.


We are not educators. We cannot speak from professional experience on the pros and cons of neighborhood schools in a town like ours. However, Dr. Phelan recently said something that really struck a chord with us - to paraphrase; he said that since he’s been in Hopkinton decisions such as these have been made based on what we had the ability and capacity to do. This is an opportunity to make a decision based on what we believe is the best educational model.


We need to take advantage of the opportunity we have:

  • to give our children a smaller environment in which to forge friendships and gain confidence during those formative elementary school years

  • to give families time to get to know and be vested in their elementary school

  • to make scheduling logistics easier for families with multiple children

  • to shorten bus routes for everyone, start secondary schools later and save money by eliminating a bus run

  • to create the best educational model for our children

Parity is a legitimate concern but we have to solve one problem at a time. Resolve the problem with our neediest school first and then allocate funds to bring the other elementary schools up to comparable standards. It is up to the town to support each step of this process. For those of us who are concerned with our property values, continuing to invest in our future – our children and their education - is an excellent way to secure those property values.


We are amazed and grateful for the quality of education students receive at Center School, despite the physical hardships. We can only imagine how great things will be with a new building that eliminates those hardships. As adults, we owe our success to previous generations who believed in and invested in education. As a community we owe the same to the next generation.

Massachusetts State Police, FBI, Brockton Officers Seize Assault Rifle from Suspect


In Separate Case, Troopers Seize Loaded Large-Caliber Handgun in New Bedford


February 25, 2011 — Members of the Massachusetts State Police Gang Unit, an FBI agent and Brockton Police detectives last night arrested a marijuana dealer and seized an AK-style assault rifle with a round in its chamber and nine more rounds in its magazine. Police also seized hundreds of rifle bullets, several bags of marijuana, drug distribution paraphernalia and several hundred dollars.


The arrest and seizure followed execution of a search warrant just before 6 p.m. Thursday at 33 Custer St. in Brockton. The target, HAROLD V. WATSON, 21, was charged with possession of a large capacity firearm; possession of a large capacity feeding device; possession of ammunition; possession of a firearm without an FID card; and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.


In a separate case, this morning the State Police Gang Unit and the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section recovered a loaded large-caliber handgun from a man in New Bedford.


Last night’s arrest was the result of an investigation into a street-level drug dealer. When troopers went to the 33 Custer St. residence, a 12-year-old boy – a relative of the target – answered the door. Police entered the house and determined that WATSON was upstairs. State Police Gang Unit Trooper Erik Telford then observed WATSON at the top of the stairs leading to the second floor. Trooper Telford announced himself as a police officer and ordered WATSON to the ground. Instead, WATSON ran down a hallway with troopers, the agent and detectives behind him. Gang Unit Trooper Frank Walls kicked open a closed door and found WATSON standing beside a cushioned chair that was next to his bed.


Trooper Walls looked under the chair and found an assault rifle loaded with a banana clip magazine. The gun had a 7.62 mm round in its chamber and nine 7.62 mm rounds in the magazine. Police also found on the floor of the closet a green metal ammo case containing 345 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition. On a shelf, inside a zip lock bag, were three clear bags of a substance believed to be marijuana, while two large zip lock bags containing suspected marijuana were found in the closet and a small plastic bag of marijuana was in a backpack. Troopers also found $550 cash – most of it denominations of hundreds and twenties, a digital scale, and other items used in the distribution of narcotics. Police also seized the suspect’s Apple iphone.


 The approximately preliminary weight of all the suspected marijuana seized from WATSON was 513 grams – well over a pound.


Following his arrest, WATSON told the troopers, agent and officers that when he ran into the bedroom he was going for the gun because he initially thought he was being robbed. He said decided not to retrieve the gun because he realized he was being chased by police, not robbers. WATSON told troopers he bought the assault rifle for $1,000 last year from an unidentified person. He bought it for protection, he said, after he was robbed of marijuana by two masked men who were wielding an AK-47. He said he did not report the robbery because he did not want to alert police to his drug dealing.


WATSON was held without bail at the Brockton Police Department overnight and was expected to be arraigned today in the Brockton District Court.


In the other case, at 8 a.m. today Massachusetts State Troopers assigned to the Gang Unit and the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section went to a residence at 438 Bolton St., New Bedford looking for the subject of an outstanding warrant. They did not find that target, but found his brother, BRANDON MEDEIROS, 25, and a second man, PATRICK ALVES, 20, who was lying on a futon under a sheet.


Troopers observed ALVES, under the sheet, moving around and refusing to show his hands. Troopers removed the sheet and saw a .45 caliber handgun on the futon. Inspection of the gun revealed that it had an obliterated serial number and seven rounds in its magazine. A subsequent sweep of the apartment revealed a box of .380 caliber ammunition on the floor of MEDEIROS’s bedroom.


The gun and ammunition were seized and both men were arrested and transported to the State Police Barracks in Dartmouth for booking on weapons charges. ALVES is charged with a second offense for unlawful possession of a firearm. The men are expected to be arraigned in New Bedford District Court.

William Tetlow Withdraws Zoning Change Petition

February 24, 2011 — Hopkinton landowner William Tetlow, looking to expand his plaza at 25 Hayward Street, which currently includes Dunkin' Donuts, Marathon Restaurant, and a vacant Milford Federal Bank, brought a citizen's petition to rezone an adjacent group of lots from lakefront to rural business to the Zoning Advisory Committee last month. ZAC voted against recommending the change, a step, had it passed, could have brought Planning Board approval at Town Meeting in May. Nearby lake residents, mostly members of the Lake Maspenock Preservation Association, appeared at that meeting to stand against the proposal, as they had in 2008. The measure would have needed a 2/3 majority to pass. The vote at the 2008 Town Meeting failed to pass.

       Mr. Tetlow withdrew the petition article today in a letter personally delivered by him to Town Hall today. (File photo).

Assault on Downey?

February 23, 2011 — A Downey Street resident was asked to call for an individual who had allegedly been assaulted by a driver after she stopped to ask him why he was photographing her vehicle.



February 23, 2011 — “I am very pleased that the Department of Justice and President Obama have determined that the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional. This is a position that we have held and argued since we filed our lawsuit in July 2009. We brought our case based on a firm conviction that to achieve equality for all married couples in Massachusetts, we need to ensure that all citizens enjoy the same rights and protections under the Constitution. Today’s decision is another important victory for the civil rights of same-sex couples and their families, as it now means that DOMA has been declared discriminatory and unconstitutional by a federal judge, the Department of Justice, and the President of the United States. A letter sent today from Attorney General Eric Holder informed Congress that it has the ability to continue to defend these suits. Exactly what that means for our litigation pending in the First Circuit Court will become clear in the next few days.”

Trooper Fatally Shoots Fleeing Driver


ASHBY– February 22, 2011 - The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office and the Massachusetts State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are conducting an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding a police-involved fatal shooting in Ashby.

 According to authorities, at approximately 1:15pm this afternoon, a Massachusetts State Police Trooper assigned to the MSP Gang Unit was attempting to make a motor vehicle stop of a vehicle in Ashby.  Instead of stopping for the trooper, it is alleged that the decedent fled and a pursuit ensued.  The decedent subsequently went down a dead end road. The Trooper followed, became stuck, and then exited his vehicle, ordering the decedent to stop.  Instead of stopping, it is alleged that the decedent then drove his vehicle at the trooper.  In an attempt to avoid being hit by the decedent’s vehicle, the trooper discharged his firearm, striking him.

             The decedent, who has been identified as Roger Reyes Padilla, 21, of Fitchburg, was pronounced dead at the scene.

            Authorities have since discovered drugs at the scene.  The investigation into the circumstances of the shooting continues and further details, including the name of the officer involved, will be released upon completion of the investigation.
