Log on to HopNews Friday, November 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm for a Live! on Main webcast featuring Michael Karlis, the Editor-in-Chief of the Hopkinton High School Press print version, which published its inaugural edition November 1, 2016

Q. What is black and white and read all over?

A. A newspaper!

        That was a pun, as I remember it, from a 1955 issue of My Weekly Reader, a news publication that offered world and national news of the day, scientific and medical breakthroughs, as well as educational and entertaining features, to students across the country.

        A third grade student in 1955 would have learned in My Weekly Reader about the development by Jonas Salk, of the world-changing polio vaccine that saved hundreds of thousands of children from the ravages of that paralyzing virus, before taking their place in the long line in the school gym, a line that snaked to the waiting school nurse for their own injection.

         Hopkinton students have had their own local news source, the online-only, Hopkinton High School Press ( www.HHSPress.org ), for a few years now.  But  the Journalism Class and Club have brought back the excitement from days of yore of opening and holding a printed paper with local news and stunning achievements about their friends and their school.

        The paper, online and print, is chock full of interesting stories about  school issues -- school start time, turf fields -- but also news leading up to the most historic election of a lifetime, too (save your ISSUE 1 copy in a warm, dry place).

        Please join HopNews Editor Robert Falcione and HHSPress student Editor Michael Karlis on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm for a live webcast we call Live! on Main on HopNews.com at the top of the page one content.

Milford Regional Announces Change in Pediatric Services

Milford, Mass. — Milford Regional Medical Center has filed notification to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health that it will no longer provide inpatient pediatric services. However, pediatric patients will continue to receive excellent care from pediatric physicians who are on the medical staffs of both Milford Regional and Boston Children's Hospital alongside our emergency medicine physicians in a designated pediatric section of the emergency department.

After much careful thought and deliberation, the decision to close inpatient pediatric services was based upon low patient admissions. Pediatric admissions accounted for approximately 1 percent of Milford Regional's total patient admissions in FY 2016. While Milford Regional has 10 licensed patient beds, most are generally not in service, and pediatric admissions have been declining for years. Based upon these low numbers, Milford Regional determined that it wasn't feasible to continue operating an inpatient pediatric unit.

However, parents can count on Milford Regional's collaborative arrangements with Boston Children's that ensures a continuation of the high quality care they have come to expect for their children at the Medical Center. Today, the majority of pediatric care offered at community hospitals is treated within a 24-hour period. Adapting to these changes in pediatric medicine, most of our pediatric patients will be cared for in a pediatric section of the newly constructed emergency department. The spacious rooms that are only one year old comfortably accommodate the child with his/her parents and are equipped with the most up-to-date medical systems. And as has always been the case, when specialized pediatric care is needed, transfers to tertiary care facilities in Boston or Worcester will continue to take place seamlessly.

As part of the notification to DPH, a public hearing will be held on the discontinuation of services plan.

"Through our collaborative arrangement with Boston Children's and other tertiary care facilities in our region, Milford Regional remains committed to providing the very best care to our pediatric patients," says Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional. "We are confident that the transition of care to the pediatric area of our new emergency department will allow us to continue to provide the highest quality care to our pediatric patients."

Troopers Pursue, Capture Suspects from Connecticut Stabbing and Carjacking

November 10, 2016 -- At approximately 10:20 a.m. the Massachusetts State Police Barracks in Sturbridge relayed a BOLO (Be On the Lookout alert) for a dark-colored Nissan Rogue wanted in connection with a crash, stabbing, and carjacking that had just occurred in Thompson, Connecticut.

Several minutes later, Massachusetts State Police Trooper Jeffrey Gilbert from the Troop C Community Action Team observed the suspect vehicle on Route 395. With the cruiser following, the suspect vehicle got off Route 395 and onto Route 20 in Auburn, where it came to a stop. As Trooper Gilbert pulled up, the operator of the Rogue tried to ram the cruiser, and then drove into an adjacent parking lot, tried to ram a second cruiser, and fled back onto Route 20 toward Worcester. Troop C Headquarters authorized a pursuit of the vehicle.

The pursuit continued through Worcester and ended on Papagin Terrace, a cul-de-sac, where the suspect vehicle tried to turn around in a driveway in his continuing efforts to elude capture. The suspect vehicle struck a cruiser and a car parked at one of the residences there. Troopers took two suspects, a male and a female, into custody without incident. There were no injuries to troopers or to suspects.

The suspects will be transported to the State Police Barracks in Holden for processing and further investigation. The scene on Papagin Terrace is currently being processed by troopers from the State Police Crime Scene Services Section. Connecticut State Police are on-scene as well, as are troopers from the State Police Detective Unit for Worcester County. The suspect vehicle is being towed to a secure State Police facility in furtherance of the investigation.

The victim of the stabbing and carjacking in Connecticut has reportedly suffered serious injuries. Any questions regarding that incident should be directed to Connecticut State Police.

No further information is being released at this time.
