Selectmen to Receive Bylaw Proposal Banning Hours for Business Between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am
$300 fine per violation/day

 

March 7, 2014 — The Planning Board, having received a recommendation from the Zoning Advisory Committee, is advancing a proposal of that Committee to the Selectmen, that would ban hours of retail operation in Hopkinton from 11:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The proposed "general bylaw" would give the Selectmen the authority to fine violators $300/per day for breaking that bylaw.

       The correspondence from the Town Manager's office to the Selectmen lists several businesses that could be affected: Zio's Quattro, Woodville Rod & Gun Club, Hopkinton Country Club, Dynasty, Cornell's, Carbone's, Marathon Restaurant, Pan Thai Restaurant, and Price Chopper.

       Conspicuously absent from the list of affected businesses is Cumberland Farms on West Main Street, which is open 24 hours.

      The Chapters of the bylaw appear to give the Selectmen a set of criteria similar to what the Planning Board considers when considering a site design review application. It also appears that the law would exempt those with common victualar licenses issued by the board, which would include ALL of those on the list.

      Another thing at odds with common practice and the proposal itself, is that the documents assert the law as a general bylaw, which usually takes effect immediately, such as a noise ordinance, or leash law. However, the law exempts those in operation at the time of the enactment of the law, something called grandfathering, a practice of zoning bylaws, not usually general bylaws.

      A similar proposal went down in flames at Town Meeting several years ago.

      It is on next Tuesday's Selectmen's agenda for discussion at 7:10 pm, March 11, 2014. 

      Also on the agenda is the consideration of appointing Arthur Schofield as a new Police Officer upon completion of training. 

      The board will also consider supporting an initiative from the Town of Dartmouth that would increase the small business tax credit from 10% to 20% while increasing  the size of a business that qualifies, from 10 or fewer employees to 20 or fewer employees.

       The entire agenda can be read here

 

 

After Minor Crash, Medford Driver Attacks Responding Trooper

 

 

March 7, 2014 — A Woburn man was arrested this morning after he attacked a state trooper who responded to the scene of a minor crash between the man and another driver on Route 93 southbound in Medford.
 
NASSIVE PALMER, 30, became uncooperative with Trooper Nicolo Falco and attempted to drive away from the crash scene. Trooper Falco, who had conducted a routine check and learned that PALMER was the subject of an outstanding warrant, prevented him from doing so. PALMER then became combative. The suspect tried to pull and push himself away when the trooper initially attempted to handcuff him, and subsequently began flailing his arms and striking the trooper with his elbows. While continuing to resist, the suspect caused himself and the trooper to fall onto the hood of the suspect’s van and then onto a guardrail.
 
After Trooper Paul O’Connor responded to the scene, both troopers were able to guide PALMER to the ground and secure him in the back seat of a cruiser. PALMER then kicked out the cruiser’s passenger-side rear window. PALMER was then restrained on the ground outside the cruiser as he continued to struggle to get free, kick his legs, and throw his head back in the direction of the trooper. A third trooper who responded, Trooper Karl Johnson, was able to secure PALMER’s legs with restraints. The suspect was transported to the Medford Barracks, where he was charged with the following:
 
1.     Assault and Battery on a Police Officer (2 counts);
2.     Malicious Destruction of Property over $250; and
3.     Resisting Arrest.
 
PALMER was also charged on the warrant that the trooper had discovered during his routine check. That warrant, issued out of Boston on March 5, charged PALMER with assault and battery. He was additionally issued a warning for failure to use care in stopping for the minor crash that preceded his attack on the trooper.
 
PALMER sustained minor cuts to his face when he came in contact with broken glass that was on the ground from the window he kicked out. He was treated by EMS at the scene and refused further medical attention. Two of the troopers will seek medical attention on their own for potential injuries.
 
The chain of events began at 7:28 a.m. when Trooper Falco witnessed PALMER and another driver, a 25-year-old Peabody man, pulled over into the breakdown lane for a minor accident. Both drivers refused medical attention. Brief investigation by the trooper indicated that PALMER’s 2003 Dodge Caravan rear-ended the Peabody man’s 2012 Audi A4 sedan when the latter driver slowed down in response to slowing traffic ahead of him. Shortly after the trooper asked each driver for their license and registration, PALMER began to become uncooperative.

Please expect delays and seek alternate routes when possible.

 

The reconstruction of the Bridge Street bridge will be completed by MassDOT on Wednesday, March 12th so that may be a viable, alternate route.

25 Years and Counting

Our thank you to you

 

Photographic Images got its Sales and Use Tax Registration in June of 1989 while doing wedding photography from my Hayward Street home.  Wow! Twenty-five years ago! I'll be sharing more of the details of that story at another time soon, but for now, please be informed that we just added new (previously taken) images to our facebook page and would like our  subjects to have them. And seeing as  you liked us enough to let me photograph you, please like us when you visit our facebook. The blue facebook link is in the ad. Choose "Photos" and then "Albums" for an orderly visit.

 

It was just a couple of years ago that the facebook phenomenon burst upon the scene; and soon afterward we decided to let our clients have their images for that purpose as a value-add to their print or Instant Portrait purchases.  It saves them having to scan them and wonder about copyright issues. We have also consulted with other photographers in the area, and advised that they follow suit. Otherwise, a photographer is just trying to hold back the tide.

 

But getting to the point, we have been offering clients of the last couple of years an upload to our Photographic Images facebook page, which they can then save into their own computer and upload to their own facebook. But what about those who have come before?

 

We just uploaded a couple hundred images of clients who may have had their portraits taken during the digital age, but pre-facebook. In addition, Eric scanned a few images of youngsters we took with film, pre-digital, fun stuff with props, some custom made (star/Moon). It is our anniversary year gift to you.  Please like us if you visit.

 

Please take a look and see if you are there. If so, you are welcome to download the image for your facebook. And please like us on facebook. Even if you didn't use 24 Main Street for your portrait, check out your friends and neighbors. And if you agree they look great, please like us on facebook.

 

Note: Please visit our facebook main page, like us immediately, then choose "photos," and then choose "albums" to browse in an orderly fashion. We even put up a dozen or so from our film days. Happy Anniversary!

HHS presents Vietnam War drama

Appearing in “A Piece of My Heart” are, above, Cassandra Clark, Brent Leibowitz, Tristan Clark, Evelyn Oliver and Dan Taylor.

 

Hopkinton High School’s drama students on March 13 to 15 will present “A Piece of My Heart,” Shirley Lauro’s emotionally charged play depicting the experiences of nurses serving in Vietnam.

 

The play, which the Vietnam Vets Association calls “the most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” portrays the young nurses before, during, and after their tour and ends as each leaves a personal token at the Vietnam memorial wall in Washington.  It was adapted from Keith Walker’s 1986 book of the same name, which included oral histories from 26 women who served in Vietnam.  

 

To help the nine student actors prepare for their roles, director Valerie von Rosenvinge invited former Army nurse Maureen Adduci, who served in Vietnam, to speak with them.  Adduci’s candor helped the students understand the impact of that long-ago conflict on those who fought it. “All of the students recognized that this is more than a school play…it is an opportunity to recognize the sacrifices that a group of women made long ago,” von Rosenvinge said.

 

Performances of “A Piece of My Heart” are 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 13; and 7 p.m. on Friday, March 14, and Saturday, March 15 at the Hopkinton High School auditorium.  Tickets are $5 for students, seniors, and veterans and $10 for adults.  Please note the play contains harsh language and references to the atrocities of war. ~ Contributed by Cathy Buday
