Bigger, Better, but Still Has a Ways to Go New Design for Planned Millis Playground Better Meets Needs, but Could Go Further By J.D. O’Gara The Millis Playground Committee has a new design for it’s playground, and it looks a lot different from the first.

Event to Take Place April 27, Volunteers Needed

“With feedback from the school and Extended Day program, we realized that our original design was too modest and we needed to expanded the scope to accommodate the volume of children that will use the playground everyday,” says Jennifer Farrar, member of the Millis Playground Committee. Essentially, says Farrar, this meant making it bigger. “We couldn’t put in a structure for 10 kids, when there were 40 at recess,” says Farrar, who adds, “With the overwhelming support from the community, we were able to fundraise beyond our original goal and create this new proposal.” The proposal includes elements for accessible equipment, thanks to a $15,000 grant won with the help of Mr. Phelps, the Principal at Clyde Brown. “We are proud to say that the proposed design exceeds ADA standards and is very safe and in-

CommunityWide Cleanup Planned for Medway By J.D. O’Gara The town of Medway is going to get a clean sweep this April, that is, if lots of volunteers turn out for what is hoped to be the first annual Medway Clean Sweep 2013, scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 27th, from 8-11 a.m., rain or shine.

Shown is the new design of the planned playground outside Clyde F. Brown Elementary. Based on feedback from school professionals, the Millis Playground Committee expanded the original design for safety and for maximum accessibility. There are still items recommended, such as a balance beam and an imaginative play structure, not shown, for which funds need to be raised. The Millis Playground Committee will hold an information night on March 21st.

In addition, the Medway Lions Club will provide clear bags for recyclables.

Happy Anniversary Encore Music Academy! Encore Music Academy and Recording Studios celebrates one year in business at their 3 Bent Street location in Franklin, Mass.. Encore was conceived in the summer of 2011, by long-time friends, Lisa Ostrow and Patrick Dreier, both of Franklin. Pat and Lisa had been giving private instruction in voice, piano and guitar from their homes for many years, and realized that they could better serve the community by combining their re-

sources under one roof. Pat had recently collaborated with Lisa on her debut solo CD, Unconditional, and were excited about merging their lesson studios and recording facilities under one roof. After an extensive build-out of the 2,750 square foot space on Bent Street, Encore opened for business on February 13, 2012. From modest beginnings, Encore now boasts a faculty of 11 instructors, two state-of-the-art audio recording studios, and has be-

Arrow of Light Badge Presented to Five Webelo Scouts By anne Parker On February 10, five Webelo scouts received a very special award. They earned the Arrow of Light. It is the highest award a Cub Scout receives before he crosses over to become a Boy Scout. The recipients from Pack 115 of Millis were: Paul Bolton, Gerry Shields, Liam Murphy, Nick Solomon, Alaaeddine Ferrimy and Jack Mullen. Their Den Leader Beth Murphy was also recognized for her time and dedication to their Den.

achievements. Now at grade 5, they graduate to Boy Scouts.

To earn the Arrow of Light scouts must learn and know the boy scout oath, promise and motto. In addition to the knowledge and experience they gain being a Cub Scout, the badge is the only item that a scout takes with him into Boy Scouts. They have been working since first grade on various badges and

Scouts also must be active in their pack. They must earn three activity badges and the Webelo badge. They must memorize and explain, in their own words, the Scout Oath or Promise and the 12 points of the Scout Law. They must earn at least five badges, visit a Boy Scout troop and participate in a Boy Scout

activity. They must do a day hike or camp overnight. And they must complete the Honesty Character Connection. State Rep. Dan Winslow and Mass. State Senator Richard Ross also attended the ceremony. Senator Ross spoke to the families and scouts. Congratulations, scouts!

Medway Girl Scouts Visit State House

Local Cultural Grants Awarded for Millis

Fourteen Girl Scouts from Troop 74922 in Medway visited the State House as part of their government badge program. They toured the building with Representative Jeffrey Roy (D – Franklin) and were hosted by Senator Karen Spilka (D – Ashland) for a roundtable discussion. The attached photo was taken inside the House of Representatives Chamber.

Jodie Garzon, chair of the Millis Cultural Council, has announced the award of 10 grants totaling $4,465 for cultural programs in Millis. The MCC received 27 grant applications this year, with 10 applicants from the town of Millis. Of the awarded grants, 70% were for Millis applicants and 50% were for new applicants who had not submitted previous grant applications.

“We were excited to meet the Girl Scouts,” noted Representative Jeffrey Roy (D – Franklin. “They were well engaged during the tour and asked pointed questions about life on Beacon Hill. They also demonstrated considerable knowledge about Massachusetts history.”

“It was a pleasure to welcome the Medway Girl Scouts to the State House,” said Senator Karen Spilka (D – Ashland). “These young ladies are tomorrow’s leaders, and we are committed to supporting their interest in public service and participation in the workings of government.” The photo includes leaders: Tracey Twamley, Eileen McGonigle, Pat Davis, and Kathy MacDougall.

Community Donations Add Fine Details to New Library By J.D. O’Gara In early February, the building Millis residents have watched grow on the corner of Exchange and Main, the new library, has emerged from the ground, thanks to a constant flurry of builders, but inside those walls, a transformation is taking place. Painters have painted the walls, electricians have wired, plumbers have plumbed, but what is truly creating the character of the new library has been fueled by the Friends of the Library’s Capital Campaign, a campaign truly funded by friends – the people and businesses whom this small town has touched. Nancy Sitta, Chair of the Capital Campaign for the Friends of the Millis Public Library, says, “This is the new community building for the town,” says Sitta. “The Roche Family community room will hold 80, and nowhere in this town do we have a room like it to rent or that nonprofits can use for free.” The library, says Sitta, will become a center of the community.” “We want people to know what’s been going here to get this new library filled,” says Library Trustee Diane Jurmain. “We’re really excited about what we’ve so far been able to do with the raised funds.” So far, just about half of the Capital Campaign’s goal of $200,000 has been reached, with over half of the

areas of the new building sponsored by local residents, businesses and foundations. Local businesses, including Roche Bros., North East Signature Properties LLC, and Main Street Dental have all been large sponsors of the library’s Capital Campaign, and the library friends have also received grants from the Iorio Charitable Foundation (for the children’s room), Best Buy and Middlesex Bank (for adult technology), Foundation of Metro West (for senior programming) and Milford National Bank & Trust (for circulation desk furniture). Private citizens have made many smaller contributions, as well. Thanks to members of the former Oak Tree League, the new library will have some echoes of the past, with a Wind in the Willows niche. This area will sport the panels painted and soon to be refurbished by local artist Martha Worthington that currently hang in the Auburn Street library. “These women have had children, raised children in Millis,” says Sitta, “and they donated $1,000 to this one particular room, the first room children will enter.” Sitta explains that the ladies of the form initiated the Friends of the Millis Public Library as well as pretty much had their own garden club. The Children’s Reading Alcove is being sponsored by the family of a

Millis resident who taught pre-school here for many years. The Fireplace Reading Alcove is being sponsored by Honey Waldman, of New York, formerly of Millis, and will be named, as was “Dora’s Room,” in the current library, for her mother, Dora Winiker Waldman. The new Courtyard Garden, designed by Millis resident Jeanne Maier, is being generously sponsored by the Millis Lions Club ($12,000 pledge) and the Millis Garden Club ($5,000 pledge plus installation and on-going maintenance support.) With the many contributions, including money from the 200+ tiles painted by local residents and soon to be installed, the Friends have been able to purchase 10 computers for adults, three for the children, and three for the young adults – all with wireless access. Young adults are one group that only has a tiny spot in the current library. At the new one, they have a place to call their own, with bright colors, carefully chosen, says Sitta. “Everything is so much alive,” she says. “When you see how large the young adult room is... they actually have a room that’s a good size. Young adults will have their own computing stations. The young group, TAB (Teen Advisory Board) shared with Tricia what they wanted to see for furniture. They picked loungy things, ottomans, a lot of white laminate stuff—trendy, but durable.”

Durable with a capital “D!” says Jurmain, who explains that the trustees were careful to consider the longevity of all of the furnishings they’ve chosen for the building. “We don’t want to have to furnish this building in another 10 years.” They chose wooden furniture, she says, from “a company that gave us 20-year guarantee on joints. It was more expensive, but we raised funds so we could do that.” The new library will feature a history room, two dedicated study rooms and five individual study carrels, as well. What’s more, the Roche Family Community room will be equipped with audio/visual equipment. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Says Sitta, sponsoring a room means “committing to a legacy in your name, or in someone else’s name, or it could be a line from a poem. The name or dedication will be mounted to the wall, to honor the person or family, for many years to come.” Book Stacks, for example, have been sponsored for $250, (but there’s still one adult stack—the large print, and a children’s stack, available.) Computing Clusters are available for $1,000 each, and currently there are four available. Donations of $250 or more will be displayed on a donor wall in the library, while donations under that level will be added to a special donor book to be displayed in the library.

Jurmain and Sitta say the trustees, the Friends and the library director, Tricia Perry, are all very excited about what has taken place thus far, although there are still a few items on the wish list. “Probably more furnishings, and more special things for the children’s area,” says Jurmain, and we will also be looking to add to the collections.” Sitta adds that furnishings in the garden, such as benches and tables where people could go sit outside would also be a wonderful addition, still a little bit out of reach. Still, every little bit helps, from the big sponsorships right down to the children who’ve donated some of their own crumpled dollars to the cause. For more information on the Friends of Millis Public Library’s Capital Campaign and ways to become involved, please contact Nancy Sitta, Friends’ Fundraising Chair at (508) 376-2676 or email friendsofmillispubliclibrary@ gmail.com.

CLEANUP continued from page 1

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to plan a communitywide event that will also be integrated with Medway 300. We hope and expect it will be able to continue,” says Medway Town Administrator Suzanne Kennedy. Selectman John Foresto notes that the effort is hoped to become “something the town could use on a year-to-year basis. It’s a good opportunity to get the town together. We’re gotten a very good response from the town so far, I feel really good about it. I think it’s going to be a great day.” Tom Holder adds, “We’ve been considering doing something for a couple of years. Some of our neighboring towns do it. I think a lot of interest has come about with Medway’s 300th, with all the events we’ve having, and having wanted to do it, this seemed like a decent year.” The event is being planned to coincide with the efforts of a parent cleanup crew that has been sprucing up school grounds for years. Holder says that the effort will include five neighborhoods, Fisher/Granite/Alder streets, Coffee/Ellis Streets, Highland/Oak Streets, Lovering/Adams Streets and Oakland/North Streets, as well as the cleaning up of school grounds already being planned. In addition, he says, the town has

Local Town Pages www.millismedwaynews.com

sent letters asking for businesses in town to take charge of making sure the area around their businesses is in good shape. Holder also notes that the town sent letters to various organizations in town such as church groups, scout groups, school groups and neighborhood leaders, inviting them to attend two meetings. “We had quite a turnout,” he says, excitedly. “A dozen to 20 different representatives from different groups.” That news will be heartening to Kathy McSweeney. McSweeney is the chairperson for what, she says, is unofficially called the “Beautification Committee,” at the public schools. “It’s been a good nine or 10 years now,” says McSweeney, who says that the effort began with some parents cleaning up the entrances to the schools at the lower level, planting, doing flowerpots and generally sprucing up grounds. The need for cleanup grew, however, and now the committee works to clean up all five schools, and has done such extensive work as taking down trees. “It’s mainly made up of parents,” says McSweeney, “and not many of them. There’s a core of about five of us.” McSweeney is hoping the out-

reach to sports teams and local groups yield more involvement from students, and hopefully, parents as well. Last year, she says, the group worked with a Girl Scout troop, and since her husband and brother in law coach football, with members of the football team. “Without the football team, it wouldn’t have gotten done,” she says, connoting the same old sentiment that many hands make light work. Still, McSweeney is positive regarding this year’s group outreach. “We’re working with a couple of teachers on green team at Middle School and again on elementary levels…children and their parents, and I think we’ll get a lot of participation from the high school level. Rather than just get the football team, we’re hoping to get more. It’s just a couple of hours,” says McSweeney, who says she likes the moniker “Clean Sweep,” and hopes it sticks. With enough people, it can get done. It would be nice to have everyone out helping.” If you would like to help beautify your area of town in Medway for Medway’s Clean Sweep, please contact the Town Administrator’s office at (508) 533-3264 or CleanSweep@townofmedway.org to volunteer.

As we look forward to moving into a new library facility, the Library Trustees and staff are also looking ahead at the future of the Millis Public Library and are working on developing a new Strategic Plan. Libraries exist to serve the needs of their community, and we believe that residents have insights and opinions that would be valuable to hear. It is only with your input and assistance that we can ensure that we are growing in the best possible direction.

We hope that residents of all ages will assist us in this effort by completing the online survey. Print copies of the survey will also be available at the Library and at the Town Clerk’s Office. Thank you for assisting us in defining the new future of the Millis Public Library.

The season of allergy-induced sniffles and other complications is right around the corner. If you are one of the millions of people affected by seasonal allergies that lead to nasal swelling, sneezing, watery eyes, and a scratchy throat, you may not be eagerly anticipating the warmer weather as much as others. Allergy research is ongoing, and in the future doctors may be able to prevent allergic reactions from occurring rather than treating the symptoms that ensue. Until then, you will have to work with the remedies that currently exist. These remedies include antihistamines, which can cause dangerous interactions with other medications and may cause drowsiness. These side effects can

be dangerous for use in seniors. Consider these other options instead. • Drink plenty of fluids. Although liquids can't wash the allergens out of your system, water, juice and clear broths can help loosen congestion. Hot liquids can soothe inflamed membranes in the nose and throat. • Avoid allergens as much as possible. Check weather reports for the levels of particulates in the air and stay indoors if they are high. Keep away from tall grasses and places with a lot of foliage. • Use the air conditioning. Rather than keeping the windows wide open, use an air conditioner and dehumidifier to filter the air coming inside of the house and

ensuring it is cool and dry. • Head to the beach. If you want to spend time outdoors, areas by the ocean will have pollen counts that are much lower than in mountainous areas. • Dry clothes indoors. Linedried clothes may smell fresh, but they can bring molds and pollens indoors and exacerbate allergies. • Shower frequently. After being outdoors, take a shower to rinse off any allergens clinging to hair and skin. • Check with a doctor. Before mixing allergy medications with any prescriptions you are taking, ensure that they are safe to mix. If your doctor is unavailable, consult with a pharmacist about drug interactions.

Making the changes you desire is relaxing and fun.

Expert answers to your health and wellness questions By ChristOPher CharrOn Question: What are your thoughts on cheat meals, especially for those that are diligent with their daily eating? answer: It’s an interesting question, but the answer really depends on how you define diligent. For those that follow consistent patterns of clean eating—meaning they follow a regimented diet of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats—I have no problem with a cheat meal here and there. Again, it just comes down to frequency. I happen to think that having a cheat meal or splurging a bit is just part of living a healthy and happy life. But you also have to realize that it doesn’t take much to throw you off track if your focus is on attaining or maintaining a healthy weight. Therefore, it may be wise to increase your physical activity for a day or two before and after the meal. This will help to compensate for the calorie load and may make you more at ease with your decision. And be mindful of your other meals as well, so that your one cheat meal doesn’t turn into two or three. Enjoy!!

Question: I see a bunch of guys wearing weight belts in the gym. Should I be wearing one too? answer: Generally speaking, there’s no need to wear a weight belt when strength training. This practice became quite popular in the 80’s and 90’s, and now you can find plenty of people that simply won’t lift without them. In actuality, lifting consistently with a weight belt can weaken your lower back and abdominal muscles over time, so most of us should be leaving it at home. There are certain instances when a weight belt may be useful however, including maximal lifts for things like squats, deadlifts, and overhead presses. But when you move on to exercises like rowing, bench presses, and other more standard lifts, take it off and toss it aside! Question: What should I eat or drink if I only have an hour before I work out? answer: What you eat before a practice or game should be largely determined by timing and personal preference. Generally speaking, a large meal takes 4-5 hours to digest, a smaller meal takes 2-3 hours and a large snack takes 1-2 hours.

If you don’t digest food well enough prior to an activity, you can end up with a stomachache and cramping. This often occurs because blood (which plays a key role in digestion) is shunted to your arms and legs during activity, thereby slowing down the digestive process. Therefore, if you only have an hour to fuel yourself, it would probably be best to stick with a liquid carbohydrate/ protein shake. Liquids are processed faster than solid foods and will provide the energy you need in a shorter timeframe. Keep in mind, we’re not talking about those ice creambased shakes from fast food restaurants. We’re talking about a sports nutrition shake that is designed for active individuals and athletes. If you want something lighter, a traditional sports drink would be a viable option as well. There are a number of products on the market in each category, so do some tastetesting to see which ones work best for you. Chris Charron is the club owner at Anytime Fitness in Medway.

Excellence in Cataract Surgery: What you should expect in 2013 By rOGer m. kaLDawy, m.D. miLfOrD frankLin eye Center Cataract surgery is by far the most common surgery performed in the United States. With advanced technology and highly skilled surgeons, modern cataract surgery should be a rather quick, outpatient and minimal risk procedure. Your expectations should not only be to improve your vision, reduce glare at night, achieve brighter and more vivid colors and an overall improvement of your day to day activities, but you should also have an opportunity to reduce your dependence on glasses or contacts and in many cases eliminate this need. In 2013, how to know you are getting the best resources, experience, skills and outcomes? Here is what you should be asking your surgeon about:

• What type of anesthesia am I going to get? With modern cataract surgery, most surgeries should be completed under topical anesthesia and local sedation. Local sedation means that the anesthesiologist will give you minimal sedation, allowing you to recover your activities after surgery almost immediately with little or no risk on your health. Topical anesthesia means that the surgery eye becomes numb with drops. No need for injections and shots around the eye. No shots translates into less risk of bleeding and side effects from the shots. Ask your surgeon about his techniques and how your procedure will be performed. • What are the risks? One of the most dreaded risk of cataract surgery is accidental damage to

the posterior capsule, which is the back wall of the bag holding your lens. This complication should happen in less than 5% of the cases and the source of this information should be credible. Ask your surgeon about his/ her complication rate.

• What type of implant am I going to get? Different lens implants can be used during cataract surgery with different materials, quality and ability to reduce your need for glasses. Ask your surgeon what type of implants he/ she uses and why.

• Where will the surgery be performed? Different centers have different equipment and resources. For instance, Massachusetts has only one center offering bladeless cataract surgery located in Waltham, MA and offering free door to door transportation service. Bladeless laser assisted surgery should be an option if you want to reduce dependence on glasses at the same time as your cataract surgery is being performed. This technology can also soften the cataract if

• Will my need to wear glasses be reduced? Cataract surgery is a wonderful opportunity to limit or eliminate your need for glasses. As the surgeon removes the cataract, there is an opportunity to replace the cloudy lens with a special high tech implant able to achieve this goal. The new bladeless laser assisted surgery offers the opportunity to correct astigmatism at the same time as the surgery, allowing the lens implants to correct for distance, near and everything

in between. Ask your surgeon if he/ she is able to achieve this goal. â&#x20AC;˘ What will be my vision on day 1 after the surgery? One of the measurements defining outcomes of cataract surgery is the quality of vision on day 1 after the surgery. Surgeons should strive to make the vision correct to as close to normal as possible on day 1. Ask your surgeon how often is he/ she achieving that. Cataract surgery is all about better precision, more safety and excellent outcomes. At Milford Franklin Eye Center, Dr. Kaldawy is proud to be the first surgeon in the area and among the first in Massachusetts to offer bladeless laser assisted cataract surgery. We are happy to bring this technology to the area. We implant high quality premium lenses, with correction for distance, near and everything in between. Many cases of astigmatism are no longer a problem as these implants can now be offered even if you have astigmatism thanks to bladeless laser surgery. Imagine having the entire procedure performed with no blades! We are now the only surgeons in the area able to offer bladeless surgery. Our percentage of posterior capsule complication is one of the lowest in the Nation and is measured by independent sources. We operate in a state-ofthe â&#x20AC;&#x201C;art surgery center in Waltham offering door to door complimentary concierge service and is the only center in Massachusetts offering bladeless cataract surgery. 100% of the surgeries are performed under topical anesthesia, so only drops, no need for shots and their risks and no need for stitches. Yes we are in 2013, and we are proud to offer 2013 world class outcomes closer to home. For more details, see our ad on the next page.

Medway Residents, Sign Up for a Rainbarrel According to Tom Holder, Director of Public Services for Medway, the town will once again be distributing rain barrels this year, on the same day as the Medway Clean Sweep, April 27th. Although there may be a cost, as grant monies have not been secured at the time of this printing, Holder explains that, starting in March, Medway residents will be able to go to the town’s website to sign up to receive a barrel. “On the signup, we ask them to give us their email, and as it gets closer, we’ll let them know how much they’ll need to commit. They actually pay when they come to collect them,” says Holder.

Millis Teen to Hold Fundraiser for Medfield Animal Shelter By J.D. O’Gara When Danielle Burgess thought about what she wanted to do for her Millis High School Senior Project, she knew it would have something to do with animals. “I’ve known what I wanted to do since this summer,” says the senior, who says her mother had brought her a news article about a dog that had been discarded in a river. “That brought my attention to it,” says the teen. “I’ve always had a love for animals.” She decided to aim her resources at aiding a local cause for animals. “I want to raise awareness on animal homelessness and abuse by raising money for the Medfield Animal Shelter,” says Burgess. Danielle has drummed up support from local businesses, asking them

to donate toward gift baskets that she will offer at a fundraiser on April 7th. The event will take place at Sluggers Academy, at 120 N. Meadows Road, in Medfield, from 12-5 p.m. “People can win baskets and raise money,” she says. Burgess has had an outpouring of support from businesses. “I’ve had about 20 donations,” she says. “Gift certificates from hair salons, restaurants, things from other local shelters, grooming things. I’ve also got supplies such as dog food and dog bones, all that fun stuff,” she says. “At this point, I’m just hoping for a good turnout.” What’s more, Burgess plans to direct visitors’ attention to her cause. “I will have information boards about animal homelessness and an-

imal abuse,” says Burgess, who adds respectfully that pets are not allowed at the event, and that parents of young children be aware that some of the animal abuse photos may be disturbing to very young children. Burgess has been working with mentor Jackie Walters, who works at the Medfield Animal Shelter (www.medwayshelter.com), a primarily volunteer organization that takes in strays from Medfield, Dover and surrounding towns. The civic project is something that she will have to present to teachers and the town. The senior project, says Burgess, will “get us ready for the real world, job applications, everything,” she says.

“Times are Changing” Say Two MBC Upcoming Speakers Medway Business Council is proud to present Claire O’Neill, Economic Development Director for the town of Medway and Roger Calarese the commercial real estate developer who will be constructing Tri Valley Commons which will be located on Route 109 between the Charles River Bank and Papa Gino’s. Claire was appointed to her position in October 2012. This signifies an important commitment by the town to encourage commercial and industrial tax base expansion.

Claire has worked for more than fourteen years with Massachusetts communities on economic development matters with significant experience in redevelopment, business incentives and project financing. Most recently Claire was the Director of the Commonwealth’s Economic Assistance Coordinating Council (EACC) that works with more than 200 communities across the state. She received a B.A. in History, Politics and Economic History from the University of London,

UK and a Masters in Regional Planning from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Since arriving in Medway, Claire has engaged with state and regional organizations to solicit their input and support for Medway’s development efforts. She has met several times with the town’s Economic Development Committee to further their goals and together they have reached out to over 300 Medway businesses seeking their input on doing business in Medway.

think Fiske’s first

At MBC’s March 21st meeting, Claire plans on providing an overview of the economic development efforts in the town including marketing, property development and regulations. Roger will be presenting an overview of the new 35,000 square foot plaza which is currently in the in the permit and approval stage and being marketed by American Commercial Real Estate (ACRE). Roger Calarese is commercial real estate developer from Franklin Mass. He has developed retail and office space in Franklin, Milford, and Uxbridge. After completing his Bachelors Degree in Accounting from Bentley University he continued working in the family supermarket business. During the early 1980’s opportunities were made available for development of office condominiums and retail space. During 1986 the construction of Franklin Village started and when completed was over 330,000 square

feet of retail and office space located at the corner of Route 140 and 495 in Franklin Mass. Over the past 30 years he has developed over 500,000 square feet of retail and office space in Franklin, Milford and Uxbridge. Currently Mr. Calarese owns two properties. Digital Federal Credit Union located along Route 140 in Franklin, and Charles River Bank located along Route 140 in Bellingham. Lighting and landscaping are very important and help make the properties attractive and inviting to consumers. While learning the development business it became very clear that in developing property it is very important to maintain the facilities with very high standards. The program will be held at the Charles River Bank in Medway at 5:00 p.m. All local businesses are welcome. $15/pp Refreshments included. Please RSVP to info@medwaybusinesscouncil.org by March 15th.

Clyde F. Brown School South Pacific Comes to Millis! Meets HealthierUS School Challenge Clyde F. Brown School is making national news by working to support and improve the health of our children and our community. As part of their effort, healthy items are featured on their menus and physical education and activity emphasized. Their efforts are part of the HealthierUS School Challenge. The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. It supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign by recognizing schools that are creating healthier school environments through their promotion of good nutrition and physical activity. Sponsored by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the initiative encourages all schools take a leadership role in helping students to make healthier eating and physical activity choices that will last a lifetime. Schools, such as Clyde F. Brown School that champion the HUSSC work hard to make changes to their school nutrition environment in order to (1) improve the quality of the foods served, (2) provide students with nutrition education, and (3) provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.

To qualify for an award, a school must submit a formal application and meet basic criteria set forth by the FNS. The HUSSC criteria reflect the recommendations of the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published recommendations (April 2007) for foods that should be served in schools, outside of the organized school lunch meals. HealthierUS Schools must also have a local school wellness policy, as mandated by Congress. Schools receiving a HUSSC award commit to meeting the criteria throughout their four year certification period. The Clyde F. Brown School qualified for the USDA’s Bronze Award. The HUSSC application process was led by Eli Norris, Director, Chartwell Food Services. A team of school professionals and a representative of the parent organization reviewed the application and included Diane Danehy, School Nurse, and members of the Millis Health and Wellness Committee Special recognition is also due to the school nutrition staff for their efforts in achieving school lunch menu changes leading to a HUSSC Bronze award.

Meet "Myles," an older kitten who is curious, and fun-loving and a friend to all the volunteers. He was left on the doorstep of a local Animal Control Office and it was discovered that this young kitten had a wound on his paw that would require a six month quarantine. PCS was called because Animal Control did not want to euthanize this kitten. He has completed his quarantine and is now ready to find a loving home. Myles is a very cute black and white, domestic shorthair that loves playtime and would be a great companion. He would also do well in a home with another cat. If you are interested in meeting Myles

or any of the other cats available for adoption at PCS visit our website www.purrfectcatshelter.org or call the message center at (508) 533-5855 for more information and adoption applications. All cats and kittens are examined by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, tested for feline leukemia and FIV, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption. The Purr-fect Cat Shelter is a non-profit, nokill, all volunteer organization providing care and shelter to homeless cats and kittens with the ultimate goal of finding permanent loving homes for each cat.

Sports With Narducci at the Net, Medway Mustang's Aim for State Tourney Again By ChristOPher tremBLay Medway’s Mike Narducci began playing hockey when he was five years old, but it was his father who later changed his mind some seven years later as to which position on the ice as to where he would make a name for himself. “I skated out until I was 12 years old; it was then that I first thought about playing goalie like my father. My dad, who was the first ever goalie at Medway when the hockey program began in 1987, was a big influence on me,” said Narducci. “I looked up to my dad and wanted to be just like him that’s why I tried goalie. I knew that I’d have his support as well as

“I felt that I was held back on the junior varsity team,” he said. “When I got my first varsity start it was great, the skill level was different and the players were more talented, but I was motivated to show I belonged.” That season Narducci showed that he surely belonged between the pipes for Medway, back boning the Mustangs all the way to the Division 3 State Championship game. The Mustangs captured the Division 3 South Title behind the brilliant play of Narducci, as the senior captain virtually shut the door as his teammates were able to beat the opposing goalie. During the run

how long it’ll remain as number one, so I’m enjoying it now,” the Medway goalie said. “It was the best month ever. Not only was I playing a game that I loved with all my friends, but the rest of the school as well as the community got to get behind us and enjoy it as well.” With all the success the Mustang hockey team secured last year, the team has had a bull’s-eye on its back this winter, and despite being a marked team the squad has given the Medway faithful yet another year to remember. The Mustangs have posted a 12-1-3 record so far with its only loss coming to Medfield, which will most likely capture the Tri-Valley League once again. Medway defeated Medfield the first time the two league foes meet up, 6-2. Medway may not win the TVL, but the team is primed to make another run through the tournament this year with Narducci anchoring the defense. “Mike is a very competitive kid that seems to come to play that much more in the big games,” Ross said. “That’s why I gave him the nickname ‘Rock Star’, he’s got nerves of steel and nothing seems to rattle him out there.”

Mike Narducci has come into his own in varsity hockey. He's got hockey in his blood.

his knowledge in the position.” The elder Narducci was a Mustang captain, as is his son, and was the first to shutout rival Westwood. The younger goalie has also blanked Westwood, but it wasn’t as big a deal as his father’s shutout, so he thought. “It really wasn’t a big deal until my dad congratulated me on the feat. It was then that I realized what it really meant to him,” Narducci said. His first two years Narducci was the main goalie for the Mustang’s junior varsity team, while also acting as the varsity’s backup keeper. It wasn’t until his junior campaign when he earned the right to start for the Medway varsity squad, feeling like the monkey had been lifted off his back.

Medway, the #10 seed with a 136-1 record, took outscored their opponents 15-3 while knocking off three top 10 teams. “It was an unbelievable run and we rode him all the way to the State Championship game where we fell to Hudson 5-1,” Medway Coach Chris Ross said. “Mike was a big part of that run and posted a 0.50 goals against average. Outside of allowing Hudson to beat him for five goals he didn’t allow any other team to score more than one goal.” Reaching the State Championship in his first varsity season is something that Narducci will remember for a long time to come. “To make it all the way to the (Boston) Garden was spectacular, honestly, it’s the number one memory of my life. I don’t know

As Narducci has risen from obscurity in the Medway JV program to one of the top Division 3 goalies he doesn’t let the pressure bother him. “Our goal, as a team, was to get back to that point (State Championship) again. There is a lot of pressure on us to succeed, but we’re very confident,” the senior captain said. “We’re playing better hockey than last year and the chemistry amongst the ‘Brothers’ is unbelievable. We’re a close knit group that does everything together. No other Medway team has done things they way we have.” As the season winds down Narducci and his band of ‘Brothers’ are looking to grab a higher seed in the Division 3 South Tournament and work their magic once again. This time they’re hoping to take home the State Title, instead of leaving it on the ice in Boston.

Ozzella A Classy All-around Star For Medway Hoop Squad By ken hamwey

Matt Ozzella’s basketball career at Medway has been a study in allaround excellence. The senior guard, who averaged 20 points and 14 rebounds a game during the regular season, can shoot threes, rebound, drive to the basket, distribute the ball and elevate his teammates’ talent. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound tri-captain was a Tri Valley League all-star as a junior and his efforts this season have attracted small-college recruiters to many of the Mustangs’ games. “Matt can play point guard or on the wing,’’ Medway coach Jason Rojee said. “He’s drawn interest from colleges because he’s such an all-around player. He’s got great body control and he can explode to the hoop. He can also pass and shoot. He shot 45 percent from the three-point line.’’ Ozzella is looking at either Pfeiffer College in North Carolina or Keane State in New Hampshire as potential venues when he graduates. A good student, he plans to continue playing basketball in college. “I’ve played AAU ball since eighth grade,’’ Ozzella said. “That includes the spring and summer and traveling all around New England. Even New York and Florida. I learned about Pfeiffer at a camp when I met Steve Enright, an assistant coach at the school, which plays in Division 2. I’ll be making a decision in the not too distant future.’’ “When I was a sophomore, we got to the sectional final and lost to Cardinal Spellman,’’ he recalled. “Last year, we lost to Norwell early. I’d like to see us get back to the final and win it. That would make us the first team in Medway history to advance that far.’’ Ozzella’s strengths include controlling tempo, ball-handling, shooting, and court vision. But, he’s acutely aware there are areas where he can improve. “I can get better at being more instinctive,’’ Ozzella said. “I can make smarter decisions in different situations and not force shots or passes.’’ The combo guard’s career is coming to a close at Medway but he’s got fond memories of some games in the past. He enjoyed defeating Norton and Holliston as a junior, when he averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds. “The Holliston game was my career high of 32 points,’’ he noted. “I

a l s o grabbed 20 rebound in t h a t matchup. It was a good win because it gave us momentum in our All-around great final game player Matt Ozzella a g a i n s t has brought excelN o r t o n . lence, with a touch of We beat humility, to Medway them and Basketball. qualified for the tourney.’’ Ozzella, who calls himself a “leader by example’’ referring to his role as a captain, no doubt liked his team’s outcomes against Holliston and Norton but his top thrill sheds light on his modest demeanor. “Going deep in the tourney as a sophomore was fun but just playing for Medway has been a good experience,’’ he said. “I like giving our fans a quality effort and I enjoy representing our school.’’ Ozzella, who will major in business in college, has admired the play of Medway’s other captains — Wes Jursek and Mike Barry — and the dedication of his head coach. “Coach Rojee has been a big help,’’ Ozzella said. “He knows how to motivate us, he focuses on our mechanics, and keeps us aware of good conditioning. He’s always stressing strong defense. Wes and Mike have been solid. Wes can rebound and score and Mike is quick in transition and strong on defense.’’ Calling Brandon Jennings of the Bucks and John Wall of the Wizards his favorite pros because of their ability to control tempo and handle the ball smoothly, Ozzella is cut from the same mold. But, the way he rebounds makes him a special kind of guard. “I work hard at going for the ball,’’ Ozzella said. “I’ve got an urge to rebound and mix it up going to the boards.’ Rojee not only labels Ozzella as an all-around player, but he’s also quick to pay him the ultimate compliment. “There really are no weaknesses in his game,’’ Rojee insists. “And, he’s a good kid and a good student. He’s very humble.’’ Matt Ozzella’s ability and style no doubt will make him an all-star once again.

Sports Tri-County's Lauren Laflamme Proves Spirit, not Size, Wins Games By ChristOPher tremBLay

This season the Tri-County girls basketball team has started a relatively young squad under Coach Ryan Hippert. The first year coach didn’t want to come in and appoint a senior as captain, just because they were a senior.

“It was this year that I realized that I was good. I never really considered myself to be a shooter, but Coach Hippert thought otherwise,” she said.

“Lauren is not the tallest player (she’s only 5’ 8”), but she continues to hold her own down low,” the Tri-County coach said. “I don’t need her to score a lot, I just want her to rebound and play solid defense. If you play good defense that translates into offense.” The senior agreed with her coach in regards to her defensive play, but also believes that her shooting has gotten increasingly better this winter.

“I really didn’t want to pick a captain right away, I wanted to see what we had before I made any decision,” the coach said. “Lauren (Laflamme) was an extremely hard worker in practice as well as in games. I picked her as our captain because she deserved it.” Laflamme, a Medway resident, has been playing basketball since the second grade and played all four years on the varsity team. Although she had been playing the sport for about a decade, it wasn’t until this season that she considered herself an elite basketball player.

“In the past scoring was not a big deal with me. I tried to focus my energy on one thing at a time and that was defense,” Laflamme said. “Now I’m becoming more

confident with my shooting and that has translated into more scoring.” Despite her size, Laflamme has continued to battle the much larger girls night in and night out. “I’d say almost every girl I go up against is bigger than me, but motivation and execution like boxing out, jumping at the right time and positioning have helped me,” she said. “They don’t expect a little girl to outplay them. It was a little intimidating at first, but it pushed me to work harder at becoming a better defensive player.” Laflamme likes the fast paced sports. In addition to basketball, she also likes soccer and track.

Historic Straw Braiding Workshop at Medway Library, March 14 Rye straw bonnets were a big part of Medway's early industry. Join Medway artist Becky Atwood to learn the history of Medway's straw braiding cottage industry and to create your own braided straw project. Workshop participants will learn to prepare and braid straw to make a small decorative item. The workshop will be held Thursday March 14, 7 - 9 p.m., at the Medway Public Library. Limited to 15 attendees, this two-hour program is open to adults and to children Grade 6 and up for a small

fee to cover some of the materials cost. Sign up in advance and pay $5 at the Library Desk. Participants should bring a pair of small, sharp scissors (approximately 4" blade) to the workshop. This program is funded in part through the Medway 300 Tercentennial celebration budget. The Medway Library is at 26 High Street, Medway MA. For more information, visit the Library's website medwaylib.org or call the Library at (508) 533-3217.

Will Raise $, Bike Across Country and Build Homes By J.D. O’Gara Locally-grown Madalyn “Laini” Cassis is young, and she’s ready to help. The 21-year-old Millis High School graduate, now a Simmons College student, has joined the cause “Bike & Build” this summer. www.bikeandbuild.org. The nonprofit has donated $4 million and its young volunteers have built for 120,000 hours and pedaled over 6 million miles, according to its website, in spreading the word about the affordable housing crisis in America. Laini will join 30 other members of her team to each raise $4,500 for the cause, and in May, they’ll gather in South Carolina to pedal all the way to Santa Cruz. The riders will have a mission in addition to raising funds; stopping 16 different times along the way to work with affordable housing organizations in each area to build homes for people in need. “I found out about Bike & Build my first month at Simmons, over 2 years ago, says Cassis. “I had heard about an upper classman who had just returned, but the idea to bike across county for charity stuck in my head. If I’m ever going to do it, I’m going to do it now.” Cassis has spent her free time helping others in a similar fashion. One year, she chose to go on “Alternative Spring Break,” in which, rather than go party, college students travel to a Habitat for Humanity worksite during their spring break. “We stayed at a church, the whole week, working for Habitat for Humanity,” says Cassis. “That really got me interested in continuing to work to benefit affordable housing.” Cassis’ training has been ongoing, she says. This year, she joined her college crew team, practicing six days a week, in the hopes it will help get her in shape. Bike and Build will also send her one of their bikes, so that she can train. She expects it in about a month. “I leave on my tour on May 22nd,” says the student, who says her daily mileage will reach from 30 miles to a little over 100 miles a day. Cassis still has a ways to go to reach that $4,500 mark, as by mid-

February she had reached just over $1,200. Her attitude remained hopeful, however. “Middlesex Savings Bank just gave me grant of $500, and I’m really grateful,” says the student, who just turned 21.

For more information on how Madalyn Cassis is doing, or to donate to her cause, visit her donation page at http://bikeandbuild.org/rider/6598.

with care and accuracy. “READ AND UNDERSTAND,” before signing. If you do not have a complete understanding, ask your attorney for guidance. When you are selling, you will be asked to fill out a “Seller’s Disclosure,” which is a detailed report on the property and a review of what you know about the property. If you are unsure of the answer, do some research, or answer “unknown.” If you are inaccurate, you may be held responsible even after the sale.

So Many Buyers - So Little Inventory! Are you or someone you know interested in Selling?

Page 23

Ashley & Jack ask: When buying and selling real estate there are so many papers and forms to fill out and sign, which are the really important ones? First off, let’s call a “spade a spade.” For the most part, these are not papers and forms, they are “contract.’ When you fill them out and sign, you are very much responsible for their content. So let’s fill them out

Once a buyer has decided they would like to make an offer, an offer “Contract” is written and signed, stating the terms, conditions, price, and timing. A “good-faith” check, and a pre-approval letter accompany this “Contract.” Then it is presented to the seller for review and signature. Also attached should be any addendums, such as inspections, and financing.

If both parties agree on the above, then usually within 7 to 10 days a more lengthy “Contract” (Purchase and Sales Agreement) is signed by buyer and then by seller. Although the “Purchase and Sales Agreement” is lengthier than the “Offer,” please do not assume that the “Offer” is less important. It is a “Contract”. Buying and selling is a “BIG DEAL,” so read and understand everything. Have your attorney review and approve before signing. Please contact me if you would like sample copies of these “Contracts.” Mr. Capozzoli has been a Massachusetts real estate broker for 35 years. You are invited to submit your real estate questions by e-mail cappy@erakey.com or by phone 508-596-2600.
