Two Car Accident Causes Jam


July 22, 2013 — A two-car accident on Route 495 northbound just before 1:00 pm this afternoon by virtue of its nature shut down the highway while the people were extricated from being entrapped. Three people, two females and one male, were transported to UMass Medical Trauma Center. Hopkinton Ambulance transported two patients, and Westborough transported one. HopNews photos are taken from the Fruit Street bridge.

Fun on the Common

July 21, 2013 — Schnauzer, above, was the first of two bands, the second was Plan C, that entertained the gathering on the common this evening.

A Little to the Left


July 21, 2013 — This handsome fellow clasps the branch of a shrub on the shore of Little Pond on the southern end of Lake Whitehall today. They use their legs like clamps when not in motion, because they have no real feet to support standing. When they fly, they are either attempting to mate or eat. The spiny hairs on the interior of its legs are brought close together to snare smaller insects as in a net when it hunts.

    
Wall of Rain

July 21, 2013 — A veritable wall of rain came from the hills to the west of Hopkinton Reservoir yesterday afternoon and burst over the surface while people were scurrying to shelter. In the photo above, the edge of the most intense part of the deluge can be hitting the surface. The two people caught in the middle of it, above, can  be seen in the photo below, the farthest away from the camera, nearest the island on the left.

         In the photo after that, people are leaving the Upper Beach of Hopkinton State Park, having been  ordered out of the water by an Environmental Police Officer after Doppler radar showed the fast-moving storm in Westborough heading toward Hopkinton. Their lackadaisical demeanor can only be from not understanding the speed at which the storm was moving. The boaters below are rushing to land after being ordered out of the water by employees of the boating facility, delivering their message  zipping around in a motor boat.



   

A Time to Reap

July 21, 2013 — A group of 15 students from St. John's Middle School Youth Group spent July 9-10-11 on 3 Days of Service.

Foxwoods Wastewater Treatment Plan Misleading Milford Residents

 

Hopkinton, MA  – July 20, 2013 — At its meeting Wednesday evening, Foxwoods Massachusetts (FCX Massachusetts, LLC) continued its sales pitch in spite of the facts.

 

The Foxwoods development team stated the Milford Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) is currently permitted to treat 12,000,000 gallons of wastewater per day.  The peer review engineers in attendance then took the floor, offering conflicting information.

 

The end result is the Milford WWTP is already at its official permitted capacity. The Plant is only authorized to treat 4,300,000 gpd.  To go beyond this limit would require a massive overhaul of the entire sewer system infrastructure, disrupting the Town of Milford for years.  Moreover, the Massachusetts DEP, the United States EPA and numerous other regulatory authorities would need to approve any changes to the Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan for Milford, further delaying the development of the casino.

 

MWACC Chairman Brian Herr (file photo) was in attendance and witnessed the debate amongst the engineers.  “I was shocked at the blatant disregard of the facts by the Foxwoods team.  As an engineer myself, the facts are the facts.  Why Foxwoods would spin the numbers to this degree is beyond logic and highly suspect.”

 

Herr concluded “The residents of Milford deserve better.  Foxwoods should give them the facts and let them make their decision based on the actual merits of the proposal.  Clearly they are grasping at the development-at-any-cost-straws in the hopes of winning votes in Milford and on Beacon Hill with the MGC.” ~ Press Release from Hopkinton Town manager's Office.

Medfield Tournament Champs!

July 20, 2013 — Congratulations to the Hopkinton 12U Summer Softball team for winning the Medfield Tournament, played on July 12-14.  The Hillers went unbeaten in the tournament outscoring their six opponents by a combined margin of 74-15.  They faced a strong Franklin Fusion team in the championship game, breaking a 4-4 tie in the top of the 6th with a clutch 3-run homer by Kristina Weldon.  Hopkinton turned a double play to end the game in the bottom of the 6th for the 7-5 victory and the championship.  Eliza Westbury and Allison Leeret each pitched 3 strong innings, and the Hiller defense was stellar all game and weekend long.    Front Row (L to R):  Anna Heavey, Meghan Sullivan, Emma Murphy, Lilly Morningstar, Andrea Bogan    Middle Row (L to R):  Eliza Westbury, Lisa Breton, Allison Leeret, Natalie Calkins, Elizabeth Liberta, Kendall Copley, Kristina Weldon, Halley Keefe    Back Row (L to R):  Coaches John Copley, Kevin Murphy, Karl Morningstar    Missing from photo:  Coach Doug Liberta.

Mass State Police Sgt. Sean Murphy Releases Photos without Authorization

July 19, 2013 — A State Police photographer, Sgt. Sean Murphy, who shadowed fellow law enforcement officers during the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and documented events photographically, unilaterally released State Police photos of the alleged Boston Marathon bomber's capture in response to a glamorous photo of him on the cover or Rolling Stone magazine.

 

 

Left, straddling the boat he was hiding in, the suspect raises his hands and reflects a sniper's infrared bead on his forehead.

 

Sgt. Murphy said in part, “Photography is very simple, it’s very basic. It brings us back to the cave. An image like this on the cover of Rolling Stone, we see it instantly as being wrong. What Rolling Stone did was wrong. This guy is evil. This is the real Boston bomber. Not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.” More quotes can be read and more photos can be seen on BostonMagazine.com

 

Last night, a spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police, David Procopio, released the following statement:

 

"Today's dissemination to Boston Magazine of photographs of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev and police activity related to his capture was not authorized by the Massachusetts State Police. The department will not release the photographs to media outlets. The State Police will have no further comment on this matter tonight."

 

US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said in a statement, "The release of these photos is completely unacceptable." News outlets are reporting that Sgt. Murphy will serve a one-day suspension, and an investigation is being initiated. Photo credit Sgt. Sean Murphy.

Six Alarms in Uxbridge

July 18, 2013 — A fire on South Main Street in Uxbridge grew to six alarms on an oppressively hot afternoon today. Companies from all surrounding towns, as  well as towns as far away as Webster and Sturbridge, contributed equipment and manpower to battle the blaze from all sides and provide relief to fellow firefighters. The three-story mixed use building, where a bridal boutique and sign shop populated the first floor, had residences on the second and third floors.

          The fire occurred across from Town Hall. Channel 7 reported that workers there helped the owner of the bridal boutique remove gowns, many that had been ordered for brides-to-be. The building was across the train tracks and the Mumford River from another famous conflagration that consumed the Bernat Mills in 2007.

           At 4:00 pm, there were no injuries reported of evacuees or firefighters, but it appeared at least two firefighters got some treatment by paramedics. Channel 4 has reported that the building will be demolished.

           Hopkinton Fire Department responded to calls for mutual aid by stationing equipment in Upton after that town sent aid to the fire. Choose a thumbnail to enlarge.

Property Passes Hands
Acquisition of properties is the beginning of ambitious plan
by Hopkinton entrepreneur

July 17, 2013 — Today's passing of papers and recording of the purchase with the Registry of Deeds is the first part of an ambitious plan by Hopkinton resident Gregory Mazur for a robust use of two properties in the Downtown Business District, a segment of which is noted in the overlay tone of the snapshot of the Town's property record above.

         Mr. Mazur acquired the first parcel today at 38-42 Main Street & 5 Walcott Street combined (outlined in red), for a total of $500,000, far above the assessed value for the combined parcel that measures just over 1/3 of an acre. He plans to add 7 Walcott Street (outlined in blue) to his portfolio for parking spaces needed for a robust use of the property, a 12,000 - 15,000 square foot three-story building featuring mixed use of retail, offices and residences.

         He said in a recent interview that he would like the front to be recessed with a level of retail on a walk-down, like Newbury Street in Boston and on the second level a walk-up.

          Downtown business owners are abuzz with positive feedback on the idea, including food purveyors expecting a fine restaurant will be built on the site, who believe in, "The more, the merrier."

          Mr. Mazur has said the first  thing he will do while the planning process moves forward is to clean up the lot.

  NOTE: The snapshot of the Downtown business district above is just an excerpt for scale and reference, and not the entire district . Nor is the pink area the whole of this developer's plans.

What type of retail would YOU like to see in that building? Restaurant, billiards, bowling, dress shop, theater, shoes? Discuss it here.
