Millis Supportive Day Participants Benefit from Each Other

During the interview, sounds of laughter bubble over from the next room, evidence of the indirect benefit participants receive from being part of the program. “They don’t get that at home,” say QuinlanKayo. “Most of these people, when they’re home, they sit in front of the TV. They don’t have the social interaction when their kids are at work. They end up creating bonds with each other.”

BY JUDY DORATO O’GARA Safe and in good hands – that’s what Patti Quinlan-Kayo, Director of Millis’ Supportive Day Program says caregivers want their loved ones to be. Four days a week, from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., people with varying stages of cognitive difficulties, such as Dementia or Alzheimer’s, gather at the Millis Senior Center as part of the program started back in 1993 by Elinor Harkins. According to Quinlan-Kayo, the program exists “to support individuals and their caretakers, so they can maintain their independence in the community. Usually the person who oversees their care is a child or spouse,” she says. Participant fees of $35 a day pay for the self-supporting program,

Medway Christmas Parade – A Community Tradition BY JUDY DORATO O’GARA

The holiday season evokes a tradition of people coming together in peace and giving of themselves. In Medway, nothing exemplifies this practice better than the Medway Christmas Parade. This 18year old local custom will continue on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 27, kicking off from Medway Middle School at

45 Holliston Street at 5 p.m. The parade will turn onto Main Street and end up at Choate Pond.

Once at the pond, children will be able to meet Santa and take a photo with him. The event will end with a bang with fireworks over Choate Pond at 6 p.m. Last year, over 6,000 people attended the event.

“It’s a wonderful tradition, says Richard Parrella, vice president of E. Parrella Company, Inc. (EPCO) in Medway, who is in his fourth year on the Medway Christmas Parade Committee. “The season’s supposed to be for peace, goodwill and joy, and I think that’s what it’s all about. We enjoy doing it,” he says. The informal committee, he says, is a small group of volunteers

who include Police Chief Alan Tingley, Scott Guyette of GF Electric, Town Clerk Maryjane White, Charlene Tingley and Becky Tingley.

The 60-year-old Medway father of two sons and grandfather to four granddaughters is a native of the town and resides here with his wife, Michele.

This year, the Medway Christ mas Parade honors Kevin Brennan as its Grand Marshall. Brennan re cently retired after serving as a pa trol sergeant for the Medway Police Department for 34 years.

“It’s a nice privilege to be asked to be the Grand Marshall of the Medway Christmas Parade,” says

Medway & Millis Senior Centers Keep Folks Active BY J.D. O’GARA

clude:

“These are not a bunch of old people walking around in walkers, these are vibrant, active people, “ says Missy Dzicik, Director of the Medway Council on Aging, when she talks about the people who use the Medway Senior Center, located at 76 Oakland Street. “You have to embrace that new phase of life,” she says. “Yes, you could watch TV for your whole life, but there’s so much out there.”

• November 10: Free luncheon for veterans at 11:30 a.m.

Both Medway and Millis senior centers have ongoing programs. Following are just a sample of them: Open hours at the Medway Senior center are Mondays, 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., Tuesdays, 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Wednesdays 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Thursdays 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., Fridays 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. Programs at the senior center do not have an age limit. The center is available free of charge, but exercise programs do cost $3. In addition, The Medway Friends of Elders produces a monthly newsletter available for subscription cost of $5/senior and $25/family. Samplings of upcoming and regular offerings in-

• November 16: $7 luncheon prepared and served at Tri-County Regional Vocational High School in Franklin. Sign up at the Senior Center. • Painting classes on Wednesdays, from 2-4 p.m. $5 per class • Beginner level Tai Chi on Tuesdays, from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. • Lunch, Mondays and Wednesdays, at 11:30, for $2 Each month, special programs are also offered. Recently, the Senior Center offered a retirement seminar, and it offers regular yoga and Zumba classes. Seniors, or anyone, looking to be more computer savvy are invited to come down on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays at 10 a.m. to receive computer help. What’s more, regular card games, including cribbage and Mah Jong, take place, as does a regular book group. In Millis, the Senior Center is located in the lower level of the Memorial building at 900 Main

Street. According to Patti Quinlan, Director of the Supported Day Program, last year saw 1,550 uses of the senior center, information that is tracked now by a coded card system. Six hundred of these visits were unduplicated. The Millis Senior Center is open from Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m.-1 pm., with occasional afternoon and evening programs. In a similar fashion to Medway, visitors can take part in regular Scrabble, Cribbage and Bingo, and they can take painting and exercise classes. They can also learn to use a computer at the center. A few of the upcoming and ongoing activities include: • Pool table with games four times a week. • Hairdressing at the center on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. • Painting with Pat on Tuesdays, from 1-2 p.m. • Painting with Bob, every other month, on Wednesdays. Next session will be in December.

Pegboard in the room displays pictures of one of the most recent trips, a day trip to Cape Cod for a seafood lunch, complete with beautiful scenery. “These are my people, and don’t we have a great time!” says Cassano. Quinlan-Kayo points out that

program participants often take part in all of the activities offered by the Millis Senior Center. “Per month, there’s usually one social and one educational event,” she says. In November, participants will have an early Thanksgiving dinner, making cards for the holiday. “I like it, “ says Norma Miccile, who lives with her son, his wife, and their two children. “It takes me time to go out, but otherwise I’d be in all the time.” “Just the companionship is priceless,” says Quinlan-Kayo. “Just listening to them talk is music to my ears. Otherwise, they’d just be sitting home alone.” For more information on the Millis Supportive Day Program, contact Patti Quinlan-Kayo at (508) 376-7051, or by email at pquinlan@millis.net.

Got Holiday Spirit? Medway Holiday House Tour Needs You! BY J.D. O’GARA Calling all homeowners with a penchant for Christmas style! Is your home historic or unique? Do you just love to decorate for the holidays? This year, why not share your flair and help the town of Medway raise needed funds for their annual Memorial Day and Christmas parades. This year’s tour will take place on December 12, from 3-6 p.m., and great houses are needed to make the tour a holiday smash. Last year, six Medway homeowners generously opened up their homes, says Town Clerk Maryjane White, who ran the Tour with Charlene and Becky Tingley.

“The people who did it had so much fun. They loved it,” says White. “And they found they could rest for Christmas. They were done (decorating).” The cost of the Holiday House Tour is $15 in advance or $20 on the day of the tour. Tickets are available at the Town Clerk’s office and in the Medway Senior Center. The Council on Aging will also provide a bus for those residents who would rather not drive. Anyone interested in opening up their Medway home for the Holiday House Tour is encouraged to contact the Town Clerk’s office as soon as possible, and no later than November 15. Stop in, or call (508) 533-3204.

The Medway Christmas Parade committee is working on gradually acquiring commercial-grade lights for the park’s trees. In fact, the Medway Pride Day Committee has made a generous donation this year toward that effort. Parrella says a committee is being formed to oversee this process, to make sure the lighting is safe and

The parade committee, says Parrella, tries to honor a civil servant or Medway resident each year. Although the town appoints the committee, Parrella emphasizes, the town does not fund the parade.

The holiday event also could not take place without volunteer efforts. Each year, says Parrella, almost all of the police and fire security are donated. The town’s firefighters even hang the lights.

PARADE

“The Christmas Parade is 100% privately funded,” says Parrella. “Our biggest challenge we have is raising money,” he says. “Up to this date, it has been the businesses and organizations of Medway who have funded this parade and this event.” Parrella notes that these economic times have really pressured businesses, and so this support means a great deal.

Curator Audrey Ritter has arranged a special exhibit of documents and articles highlighting the first hundred years of Medway history, 1713 – 1812. Maps, letters, documents from the French and Indian War and the American Revolution, household equipment and legal records are among the articles exhibited. In addition, there will be a small works well with the given power supply. The cost estimate to light just one tree in the park, he says, is about $1,250. Other funds for the parade come from the Medway Holiday House Tour, which supports both the town’s Christmas and Memorial Day Parades. The latter features the Kiltie Band from Worcester. This year’s Holiday House Tour will take place on December 12. This year’s Medway Christmas Parade include 14 different pieces of fire apparatus as well commercial, industrial and military vehicles, says Parrella. Although bands

Scanography & Photography at Medway Public Library

November Program Features Artist Lucy Hoag Peltier The Medway Public Library is featuring Fine Art Scanography and Photography, an exhibit by Wilbraham resident, Lucy Hoag Peltier, formerly of Medway. This runs from November 1 until December 5, and is open during library hours. A highlight of Peltier's exhibit is her scanner photography. Fine Art Scanner Photography (aka. Scanography) is the process of using a flatbed scanner instead of a camera to capture digital images

of three-dimensional objects to create printable art. Each final product takes hours to create. It starts with the search for creative subjects and the arrangement. Because the images are captured from underneath, usually some repositioning and rescanning are required. The last and most timeconsuming step requires touching up in the digital darkroom to remove dust and pollen. The final image is familiar, yet often surprising. Peltier is on the board of the Wilbraham Art League and partic-

Millis Students Put in Brain Training at “Gut Camp� A gallant group of middle and high school students participated in “Gut Camp for Academics� offered by the Millis Public Schools during the week of August 23. These students willingly gave up their last week of summer vacation to get a jump-start on the school year. The Gut Camp for Academics provided students with four days of concentrated work on executive function skills. Executive functions skills, such as organization, task initiation and goal setting are the skills that help one manage life tasks of all types. The program provided students with an opportunity to not only explore their unique learning style but also to prepare themselves for the upcoming school year. Students were particularly enthused with the use of

We learned about our optimal learning style, which helps with my learning abilities in school. We explored how to study optimally such as in a quiet room or while listening to music. The use of technology didn’t hurt, either. Ultimately, this workshop helped me drastically in and out of school. In my opinion, this workshop was fantastic and I hope it stays that

On September 15, the Millis School District staff participated in Professional Development focusing on bullying. Each school district in Massachusetts has been mandated by law to train their staff on this issue and restructure their policies to protect all children. Mr. Andrew Zitoli, Principal of the Middle School, and Mr. Charles Grant, Director of Student Affairs, facilitated. The objectives of the presentation included:

The first phase of the presentation focused on defining and recognizing bullying and how it has played a major role in several school shootings in other states. The staff engaged in a writing assignment that helped all of us realize the common misconceptions around bullying. The staff was also introduced to some of the most recent bullying research and the warning signs that a child is being bullied.

• how can staff recognize bullying,

Mr. Grant then addressed the new legislation and recent policy changes that must be implemented by the district to ensure the safety of each student. Each school has a legal obligation to develop a Bullying Plan that must include:

• educating all staff on the new bullying legislation, • providing teachers with strategies that support bullying prevention, • and understanding how building leadership capacity among students in our schools will sustain a positive culture.

• a reporting mechanism, • the school’s response,

tions that may be utilized when these infractions occur. Communication with parents, steps to protect the victim, and options for resolution were also addressed. Mr. Grant challenged the staff with typical “scenarios� that could occur at school and how we should address these issues. The last part of the presentation focused on the continued building of leadership capacity in our school district. We are very proud of the positive contributions of staff members and the accomplishments of each school, highlighted because they promote a high level of school spirit, student engagement, and more importantly, the building of positive relationships with our students necessary to promote a healthy school culture.

MOVIE REVIEWS JACKASS 3D (R) - Starring Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Jason Acuna ("Wee Man"), Ryan Dunn, Preston Lacy, Ehren McGheney, and Dave England are back to their side-splitting – sometimes literally – shenanigans in the third installment which brings their daredevil comic antics to life as never before. Whether they're covered in filth, excrement, or any other bodily or environmental fluids, the gang always seem to be having a good time. Even as bones are broken, bladders are ruptured, and vital organs are destroyed, the friendship between Johnny Knoxville and his slapstick brothers in (fractured) arms -- is absolutely addictive. Some of the best moments occur right at the beginning, when a pair of animated "guest stars" explain the 3D concept to viewers. Then the movie jumps right in with a stunning slow motion sequence that introduces the cast while making great use of the added optical splash. From then on, we witness

Knoxville take on a bull and some buffalo, watch Margera use Krazy Glue and his hands to do a bit of "extreme" body hair waxing, and grimace as McGhehey gets a tooth pulled via...a Lamborghini. Longtime collaborator and director Jeff Tremaine always shows the group's various reactions. He wants to make sure we understand that, aside from the clear commercial aspect involved, the Jackass guys more or less put themselves at risk for their own mutual amusement and admiration. I'm not a big fan of 3D movies, but here it's most effective. RATING: BRED (PG-13) - Starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, MaryLouise Parker, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban, William Cooper, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ernest Borgnine.

former CIA operative struggling to come to terms with retirement. Spending his days growing avocados and flirting with the woman who writes his pension checks, Willis misses the good old days. Which is a good thing as early on in proceedings a team of high-tech assassins attempt to take him out, with disastrous results. Suddenly on the run and seemingly at the center of a high-level government conspiracy, Willis picks up his pension lady and then sets about unraveling the mystery and re-assembling his former Black Ops team, all of whom are in similar danger. What makes the film work however is the quality of the cast and the standard of the gags. Willis is typically cool in the lead, believable as a cold-blooded killer while at the same time smart and self-effacing. That said, his assassin squad are the real stars of the show - Mirren is hilarious as a lethal weapons expert, Free-

man heartbreaking as a killer with terminal cancer, and Malkovich quite frankly bonkers as a former operative whose brain has melted thanks to daily doses of LSD. It's not often that Malkovich gets to flex his comedy muscles, but here he steals every scene in which he appears. RATING: B LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA'HOOLE (PG) - Starring the talented voices of Emily Barclay, Abbie Cornish, Essie Davis, Helen Mirrel, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, Ryan Kwanten, Anthony LaPaglia, Joel Edgerton, and Miriam Margolyes. The film opens with a loving family of owls -- mama, papa and three little ones, plus a snake nursemaid. Young Soren (Sturgess) will be our hero, we realize from the beginning. He dreams of the legendary Guardians of Ga'Hoole, warrior owls of lore, but his brother, the rather nasty Kludd (Kwanten), is something of a naysayer not just regarding the legends but life itself. There's also

a baby sister whose first order of business is to cough up a ball of mouse skin and bone, as owls do. So when, through a mishap that will probably prove pretty scary for the little ones in the audience, the brothers are separated from their family, it doesn't take long before the two set out on separate paths -- one all bright and shiny and good, the other dark and foreboding. Kidnapped by a feathered group called the Pure Ones, Soren and Kludd join scores of other captured young owls who are being groomed to join an army that will allow villains Nyra (Mirren) and Metal Beak (Edgerton) to attack the Guardians of Ga'Hoole. The visuals definitely carry the film, but it's tough to keep all of the owls straight as they all tend to look alike. Another problem is this 90minute film is apparently derived from the first three books in the series on which it is based. The result is that we're rushing from event to occurrence with little time to digest any of it. RATING: C+

Sharing Pride and Prayers Mothers of Deployed Find Solace, Strength in Each Other BY J.D. O’GARA “When you have a child deployed, it’s the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think of at night. If you wake up in the middle of the night, you wonder, ‘Why am I waking up?’

Robert Dicenzo, left, and Bud Shropshire, shown here outside Roche Bros., man a fall raffle table to raise funds for American Legion Post 208. Robert Dicenzo won the $300 Roche Bros. gift certificate.

Such is the experience of Lissa Haynes, a mother of two sons in the military, and a founding member of the Worcester chapter, Central Mass., Chapter 3, of the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. They are called Blue Star mothers, because they are among the few sanctioned by the U.S. government to fly service flags. Also known as blue star flags, they were patented and designed during WWI by an Army captain who had two sons serving on the front line. On the flag, stars sit prominently on a white background, surrounded by a border of red. Blue stars, the color of hope and pride, represent family members in active duty; gold symbolizes the sacrifice of loved ones who have fallen.

Blue Star Flags, or Service Flags are flown to indicate someone from a family or organization is in active military duty.

2009

Service flags recognize those who have someone in active duty. Haynes’ oldest, Collin, has been in the Coast Guard for six years, and her son, Daniel, joined the army out of college. He has twice been deployed to Iraq. “Complete panic goes through your mind, when your son’s going off,” says Haynes. “You have no idea what’s going to happen.” Haynes says that conversations with her son revealed little about his experience. Her son would tell her everything was fine. “Your friends and family, they’ll send your child packages, but they have no idea what you’re going through,” says Haynes. “At that time I knew nobody. There was no sup-

port around,” says Haynes. “I didn’t know anybody else who had a child being deployed.” Through Umass Medical Center, Haynes was eventually was connected to Blue Star Mothers in Pennsylvania, and she eventually helped begin the Worcester chapter. “I think when you are with a group of Moms who have dealt with the same situation you have, it’s a very empowering thing,” says fellow Worcester member Jo Ann Bauer, whose son Andrew is a Marine Corps. Captain. “You can live every day with friends and family saying they understand or are praying for your son and daughter, but they don’t understand.” Although support for each other is a large component of the Blue Star Mothers, the groups actively work to support deployed troops and the veterans coming back. “We take care of our children, each other and our veterans. That’s our mission,” says Haynes. The Worcester chapter, for instance, actively supports NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans, with its Canines for Combat Veterans program (http://neads.org/services_new/military_dog.shtml). Not only does the group sponsor the dogs, but while returning soldiers are training with the dogs in Princeton, Mass., Blue Star Mothers provide three meals a day. The day after Thanksgiving, they will also package up cookies to send to soldiers for the holiday season. Another Blue Star Mothers chapter local to Millis and Medway is the Braintree chapter. Mary Connolly, President of that Eastern Mass. Chapter, lists a number of causes in which her group is active. They do breakfasts for veterans, care packages, greet soldiers at Logan Airport

and are regularly meeting at InStitches to sew Christmas stockings for Operation Santa. Stockings will be sent to the troops by November 7th. About 44,000 were sent out through a base in Peoria, Illinois last year. The Eastern Mass. Blue Star Mothers also bring meals, birthday boxes and emergency stay kits to the Fisher House in West Roxbury, where the families of veterans receiving medical care can stay during hospitalizations. Last year, this branch also raised $17,000 for Homes for Our Troops (www.homesforourtroops.org), which provides accessible homes for severely injured veterans. The Braintree group generally meets the fourth Sunday of the month at 5 p.m. at the Braintree Armory. The Central Massachusetts branch of the Blue Star Mothers meets the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m., at Veteran’s Inc. (also known as the Old Calvalry Retreat Center) on South St. in Shrewsbury. Blue Star Mothers welcome new members and associate members. Members must be mothers, stepmothers or grandmothers and pay a fee of $20. Siblings, fathers, extended family and friends can also join as associate members. The easiest way to get information about the local Massachusetts chapters of Blue Star Mothers, Inc. is to visit the national website at www.bluestarmothers.org. “I always tell people, you don’t have to join, just come to one meeting and see what it’s like…you don’t have to tell everything if you don’t want to, but just listen,” says Connolly. “The only ones who know what you’re going through is another Mom.”

T H E P E T PA G E THE PURR-FECT CAT SHELTER

Pet of the Month Cuddly Kittens and Cats Looking for Forever Homes

Pet Pantry Aims to Keep Pets in the Family BY J.D. O’GARA What happens when Fido’s owners are out of work and out of money? According to Shelley Goes, the pooch often ends up in an animal shelter, and she’s looking to keep that from happening in the local area. Goes has been working in animal rescue for over 10 years. In September, she

opened the Metrowest Pet Pantry in Millis, with the express goal of keeping all family members, even the furry and feathered ones, fed and together in times of financial crisis. “As I watch the animals come in, a lot of them would be surrendered because the owners can’t afford them,” says Goes, who currently

508-528-6172 . . . while you are away Experienced It was a busy summer season for kittens and The Purr-fect Cat Shelter currently has many adorable kittens available for adoption with others that will be ready to find homes soon. If you’re interested in black, white, calico, orange, long hair, short hair, double paws, or any type in between, PCS may have the purr-fect kitten or cat for you! The Purr-fect Cat Shelter is accepting applications for all of our ready-for-adoption residents. All cats and kittens are examined by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, given age appropriate vaccines, de-wormed, and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adoption applications can be

downloaded at our website www.purrfectcatshelter.org or simply call the shelter and leave a message on our answering service at (508) 533-5855. We are also in need of volunteers to help with the care of our animals, either as a cat caregiver at the shelter or as a foster home for kittens and cats waiting to go to the shelter. More information on these opportunities can be found on our website. The Purr-fect Cat Shelter is a non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill organization providing shelter and care for homeless kittens and cats in the areas of Medway, Millis, Franklin, Norfolk, Bellingham, Walpole and surrounding communities.

volunters at The Boxer Rescue in Grafton. “’Do I pay oil or do I feed the dog?’ ” Goes has been fortunate to find others who support her mission. Randy Tucker, who owns Competitive Tile, has donated the pantry’s space, at 376 Village Street in Millis. Goes says that she has received donations both from individuals and local pet rescues, especially the Metrowest Humane Society. Even local animal control has added to the food stores. “I’ve got tons of dog food, a little bit of cat stuff…. a little bit of bird stuff, (people who need it) could use it for everything, any kind of domestic animal,” she says. Goes is hoping to get the word out to people, especially with winter and the holidays coming, that the Pet Pantry is there to help. Potential users of the pantry need to call or email and then fill out a quick application stating why they have the need to use the pantry and how long they expect to have the need. All information will be kept confidential. “It’s a very simple process,” says Goes. A craft fair to raise funds for the Metrowest Pet Pantry will be held on Saturday, December 11, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Church or Christ, 142 Exchange Street in Millis. Interested vendors may email help@metrowestpetpantry. org or visit http:// www.metrowestpetpantry.org/VendorFairReg. pdf for a space application. The space rental fee is $30 plus one raffle item, and vendors must provide tables. The Metrowest Pet Pantry is open on Sundays, from 10 a.m. until noon. Contact the pantry at (617) 719-9593 or visit www. metrowestpetpantry.org. Food and supplies may also be dropped off at The Dog Barn, 1363 Main Street in Millis Monday - Friday 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. “I don’t want people to be shy,” says Goes. “I think everybody deserves the chance. Pets are family to most people,” says Goes. “You wouldn’t give up your kid. Why should you give up your pet?”

Living Healthy Ask the Anytime Guy | Fitness Matters Expert answers to your health and wellness questions BY CHRISTOPHER CHARRON QUESTION: A friend of mine has been following a gluten-free diet, and is losing weight and feeling more energetic than she has in awhile. That said, she is not gluten intolerant and doesn’t have celiac disease. Is this diet recommended for weight loss and general health? ANSWER: This diet is not intended for presumably healthy individuals, and there isn’t any research to indicate that it helps with anything other than gluten intolerance or celiac disease. There are many so-called “experts” out there that attribute the inability to lose weight, or a lack of energy, to any number of dietary factors, including gluten. Unfortunately, they can’t point to any studies in-

dicating that gluten is the problem, and if that’s the case, a lack of gluten is unlikely to be the solution. Celiac disease is diagnosed with a blood test and an intestinal biopsy, and gluten intolerance is typically diagnosed if gastrointestinal symptoms persist in the absence of a clinical diagnosis. Your friend is likely experiencing weight loss as the result of following a more restrictive, lower calorie diet, and this probably explains her renewed energy level as well. If she wants to continue the diet, that’s completely fine, but it probably isn’t necessary to reach her health and wellness goals. QUESTION: I just started lifting weights and noticed that I have some significant muscular imbalances when it comes to strength. Is this normal, and if so, what can

I do about it? ANSWER: This is completely normal, and is something that most people deal with when they start a strength training program. Most of us have a dominant side that becomes stronger as we age, thanks to repetitive use. This leaves us with a weaker side that can make strength training more challenging. Luckily, these weaknesses can be overcome. If you engage in a regular lifting program, your weaker side will gradually catch up over time. You don’t even need to focus specifically on your weaker areas, though many people do, in order to balance things out a bit faster. Bottom line—consistent training and time will create a balanced and strong body, so just stick with it!

QUESTION: I heard that adding wrist and ankle weights while doing cardio will increase my calorie burn significantly. Sound like a good idea? ANSWER: In a word, no! Adding these types of weights can increase the calories burned during your exercise sessions, but only to a very modest degree. In addition, they can throw off the biomechanics of your movements, and potentially cause injuries to the shoulders, elbows, wrists, and ankles. They’re simply not worth

it. You can get a much more effective workout by simply increasing the intensity and/or duration of your cardiovascular exercise. Or better yet, throw in some occasional high-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions…that will really crank up the calorie burn! Chris Charron is the club owner at Anytime Fitness in Medway.

By J.D. O’Gara Dr. Steven Bornstein believes preventing illness starts with getting to know his patients. As a family doctor, that’s what he does well – and he’s taking that family practice back to Millis. His new practice, affiliated with Framingham’s MetroWest Physician Services (MWPS), will be located in a new office building at 969 Main Street. “It’s great to be able to see both parents, children, and grandparents and see patterns, behavior and genetic predisposition,” says Dr. Bornstein. “It’s really nice to have that to understand where they’re coming from, and where they may be going to.” As a D.O. or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Bornstein will provide traditional physician services, including physicals and urgent care, with a focus on preventive health care and a ‘whole person’ approach. “As a family medicine practitioner, I take the time to get to

Whole Family, Whole Health D.O. Returns to Millis to Provide Care know my patients and the areas of their life that can affect their health,” says Dr. Bornstein. “In caring for individuals from newborns to seniors, I teach wellness skills aimed at helping patients to enhance their health at all stages of life.” Bornstein’s philosophy focuses on achieving more wellness, rather than centering on sickness and illness. He explains a concept of a circle of wellness, which would include food and nutrition, physical activity, proper sleep, a sense of community, with supportive relationships and even spirituality. “Prevention starts from day one,” says Bornstein, “from the food we eat to the air we breathe to our physical activity, as well as providing time for reflection,” he says. Bornstein notes that, from the time he entered medical school, he has believed that pre-

ventative medicine is as important as early detection practices. Bornstein is returning to Millis from Tri-County Medical Associates in Medway, where he had served as a primary care physician since 2006. Prior to that, he worked as a physician for Millis Family Health. With a base of about 900 patients, he has established ties with a number of people in town. “I really have a commitment to the patients I’ve known for 10 years and a fondness for the people,” says Dr. Bornstein, “I think the people are friendly, receptive, respectful and compliant.” Bornstein, a native of the melting pot of Chelsea, Mass., feels he can identify with the working families of the town. “I feel a good rapport with them, a committed, mutually respectful relationship,” he says. Bornstein earned his Doctor of

Fabulous Fall Fashions...

Osteopathy and Surgery from Des Moines University of Osteopathic Medicine in Des Moines, Iowa and completed his residency in family medicine at the Botsford General Hospital in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He discusses the osteopathic approach to his practice. “There’s a philosophical part of it,” he says, “people aren’t just a symptom walking through the door. They are individuals working at a certain job with a certain family – a whole person. Their hobbies, interests, habits, all of that may influence why they have those particular symptoms. (The approach) is not just focusing on the diagnosis but on the person.” Osteopathy, says Bornstein, also incorporates the relationship between the musculoskeletal, immune and nervous systems all coming together. This hands-on medicine involves physical manipulation for the treatment of such problems as lower back or neck pain. “In order to treat the headache, the backache, you’ve got to touch

people,” says Bornstein. By the nature of being a family physician, I’m able to use those osteopathic skills along with traditional family medicine,” he says. Bornstein sees his role as a physician as one of a guide for his patients. “People generally come to the physician with a complaint or concern, or physical ailment, a worry about something and are looking for someone to understand them, guide them and not feel alone in their condition. As a physician, I’m here for them, to help them, to guide them and coordinate care.” Steven Bornstein lives in Sharon, with his wife, Suzanne and their son, now a senior in high school, and their golden retriever. About MetroWest Physician Services MetroWest Physician Services (MWPS) offers highly trained physicians in family medicine, internal medicine, OB/GYN, rheumatology, oncology, bariatric surgery and thoracic surgery at eight locations in Framingham, Millis, Natick, Milford and Franklin, Mass. All MWPS doctors are affiliated with MetroWest Medical Center, located at Framingham Union Hospital in Framingham, and Leonard Morse Hospital in Natick.

Just thinking… BY DAWNA SHACKLEY As the holidays approach I’ve been thinking what I could do this holiday season to make a difference. To give a bit more of myself than I have in the past, whether it be volunteering, donating, purchasing a gift for a deserving child or assisting an organization that needs help as so many do this time of year. With the economy not moving in the direction I'd hoped, it seems material items will not be a high priority on my list. This brought me to ponder what could I give this holiday season. I’m no different than most of you. I live in Millis, am married, have two kids, and both my spouse and I work full time to make ends meet. As difficult financially as it has been this year, it has also made me reflect on what I do have in my life and in my community and how blessed I am to live in a small town. I have noticed how my community has stuck together to help one

another out. Millis and Medway residents may not have the financial resources of some of its neighboring towns, but what it does have is heart and a lot of it. I don’t believe I have ever lived in a more caring community, where people with little means can give so generously. For example, a neighbor of mine fell seriously ill, and our neighborhood took shifts to be with him in the hospital, provided dinners, cut the lawn, took out the trash and provided company and friendship when he needed it most. Or when a small town rallies to support a little girl, Emily Malewicz, who was in a tragic camping accident, or to bring awareness to serious issues; like suicide with Ben Speaks and youth bicycle safety with Project Alex. Or the simple pleasure of seeing Holiday lights with your family driving through the Meehan’s Millis Wonderland. (www.milli wonderland.com)

Or the people who give of themselves every month of the year without asking for recognition, just because they have learned the lesson of giving. When you give, something happens inside you. You feel good. And who doesn’t want to feel good?

So this year, as you prepare to shop for the holidays, take a moment to see what you can give and be thankful for those in our community who are supporting you, your family, and neighborhood. Just think if we all could give just a little more of ourselves how truly more special our small towns of Millis and Medway can be.

Thank you all for choosing to live in our community. In closing, I’m listing some ordinary ways in which you could give this season along with some local organizations. • Babysit for a neighbor’s kids, giving the parents a night out • Shovel a driveway for an elderly neighbor • Cook a dinner for someone who just doesn’t have enough time • Donate to the food pantry • Provide supplies to a dog and cat shelter or pet pantry • Give to your local organizations • Purchase your Christmas tree from a local organization • Support your Church • Donate your time • Visit a nursing home or senior center • Visit a Children’s Hospital • Feed the homeless • Offer to decorate for someone

Fall 2010 Update from the Medway School Building Committee

The Medway School Building Committee was formed after Medway received approval of a “statement of interest” for repairing the Middle School. The approval was given by the Massachusetts School Building Authority or M.S.B.A. The M.S.B.A. decides what school building projects will get percentage of their costs reimbursed by the state. M.S.B.A. requirers the formation of the building committee.

Meeting since November, 2009, the committee is chaired by Robert Tucker, Vice Chair of the Planning Board, and members are Board of Selectmen Chair Dennis Crowley, Medway resident Larry Muench, former Finance Committee Chair Larry Ellsworth, Capital Improvement Committee Vice Chair Tom Anderson, Town Accountant Carol Pratt, Board of Selectman member

Andrew Espinosa, Town Administrator Suzanne Kennedy, Assistant Superintendant David Verdolino, Middle School Principal Armand Pires, Tina Wright, Superintendant Judith Evans, School Committee Chair Debora Trindade, and School Committee member Shelley Wieler.

The Medway School Building  Committee’s job is to oversee the  project for the  phases of the repair Middle School. It represents town and school interests while working  M.S.B.A.   reg with and following ulations. The School Building Committee has achieved the following milestones in the process: • Obtained funding at the November 2009 Town meeting for the initial phases of the project as required by the M.S.B.A.







Speech-Language & Hearing

Associates of Greater Boston, PC

A group practice of speech-language pathologists, audiologists and educational therapists, offering: • Complete audiological diagnostic and hearing aid services • Individualized intensive speech, language, literacy evaluations, and therapies • Auditory processing evaluations and treatments

• Compass Project Management (Compass) was selected as the Owner’s Project Manager in February of 2010 after a public procurement process following M.S.B.A. rules. The Owner’s Project Manager represents Medway’s interests during all phases of the project including meeting with the M.S.B.A. when required. • After another public procurement process the experienced school  project  architectural firm of Knight, Bagge and Anderson, Inc.  (K.B.A.) was retained in July. K.B.A. has developed the initial design schematics, repair recommendations and cost estimates for the repairs. • Compass, K.B.A., and the Building Committee have worked closely with the Mass. School Building Authority to obtain approval for each step in the process.

 • Metwith the M.S.B.A.   key at

points in the process and the project is on track to be voted on at the September 29th meeting of the M.S.B.A. The repairs to this more than 250,000 square foot building will consist of: • Making the building A.D.A. compliant for accessibility as required by building codes

• Addition of current Life- Safety code required sprinkler systems, upgrades and connection of the fire alarm systems which function separately for the 1960 and 1973 building. • Replacement of windows which are all original to the building’s construction to improve building energy efficiency and natural lighting • Upgrades to electrical panels and wiring which is nearly all original to the 1960 and ’73 construction – many classrooms have only 2 outlet boxes limiting the use of technology for teaching • Replacement of heating and air handling units for halls, gyms, main office and the cafeteria • Replacement of  floor  tiles and gymnasium flooring adhesives • Upgrades to plumbing for heating systems, accessible bathrooms and water fountains While the town would need to pass a debt exclusion for the full amount, the M.S.B.A. will reimburse Medway for more than fifty percent of the approved costs. Rather than having to wait until full completion of the project the M.S.B.A. now reimburses on a rolling basis allowing faster repayment of town debt. Why should the town repair the building, why not just build a new one? Building a new school would

November 1, 2010 cost in excess of $40 million, yield a building about the half the size and require demolition or mothballing of the current building. The M.S.B.A. would not support replacement of a viable, repairable building. Medway would foot the entire bill for a new building. The M.S.B.A. supports this project. We know the M.S.B.A. will reimburse Medway for more than fifty percent of the approved costs for this repair project. In addition by doing this project now we can take advantage of lower construction and bonding costs. As the economy improves it’s expected these costs will only increase. Since August, members of the committee have been meeting weekly to work on critical components of the project. It is reviewing the list of possible repairs, weighing the associated costs, benefits, and necessity of each repair. The impact of the repairs on the educational environment of the Middle School is being assessed. We are preparing for anticipated approval of the project at the September  29th M.S.B.A. meeting. When M.S.B.A. approval is received additional important work will remain to be done. The building committee must finalize the scope of the project. It must be presented to the Board of Selectman for placement on the warrant of the November 15th Town Meeting.

The play is a laugh-a-second, hilarious comedy about two English Shakespearean actors down and out on their luck, so down they are playing the Moose Lodge circuit in Pennsylvania, when they hear of an old lady in York about to die and who is leaving her fortune to long lost nephews in England. From there, romantic entanglements abound, and the ensuing situations in which they find themselves become increasingly hilarious as the play progresses.

BUILDING COMMITTEE continued from page 16

The funding proposal must be finalized before Town Meeting. The Town Meeting must vote on the project and voters need to be informed in order to make a decision. If a positive vote is achieved at Town Meeting a special election must be held on funding the project. The building committee will work with the Board of Selectman to determine the best date for the special election. Once funding is voted the building committee will continue to work with Compass, our project manager, to oversee the phases of construction and work with the M.S.B.A. to ensure we follow requirements to receive maximum possible reimbursement. Nearly all of the critical building systems and components in the Middle School are original to the 1960 and 1973 construction. These repairs will improve the safety and educational environment for its more than 800 students. It will enhance the building as a community space for continuing adult education, sports and cultural events. The town will benefit from the extension of the useful life of the Middle School building by 25 years.

Prudential Page Realty kicks off its Toys for Tots Drive MEDWAY – It’s that time of year again and Prudential Page Realty is gearing up for what they hope to be a successful season. This has nothing to do with sales, but everything to do with giving back to a wonderful community. Paul Rao, Medway resident and owner said, “Back in the early 90s one of our former agents, Stephanie Tocchi, suggested that we invite families to come to our office to drop off toys for tots and become a drop-off center for the

charity.” Toys for Tots is coordinated by the Unites States Marines Reserves, and was overseen locally by a former Marine who has since relocated. When Sergeant Bruce moved, Stephanie and her husband, Bob took over the task of stockpiling and distributing the toys. They distributed toys to over 9,000 children in 2008. While the Tocchis no longer run the local distribution, Prudential Page Realty continues to open their three offices as drop-off centers for Toys

for Tots. Rao stated, “We kick off the drive with what has become another tradition for our company. For the past 10 years we have shown appreciation for our past customers by inviting them to enjoy a movie at a local cinema on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This event has been so successful that, on occasion, we’ve filled two theatres with guests. There’s no cost to our past clients, but we ask them to consider bringing a toy to the

A Mortgage You Can Count On From The Bank You Can Bank On.

event. Some prefer to write a check to the foundation. Non-violent, unwrapped toys for all ages are accepted, as well as winter clothing such as mittens, gloves, and hats. This is a great cause that helps bring smiles to less fortunate children in the holiday season. The outpouring of generosity and goodwill from the community has been so wonderful over the years. We are very privileged to play a small part in this great endeavor.” Prudential Page Realty also hosts “Free Photos with Santa” at their Medway office as a way of giving

back to community. “When we started with Toys for Tots, we thought that this event would go well with the drive. We’ve had families coming back for photos for more than 15 years! While the photos are free, we again ask people to consider bringing a toy or making a nominal donation to Toys for Tots,” Rao added. Prudential Page Realty will start collecting toys at their three offices the week before Thanksgiving until December 17. They are located at 82 Holliston Street, Medway, 489 Main Street, Medfield and 26 Franklin Street, Wrentham.

Charles River Bank Gives Back Charles River Bank prides itself on being a good citizen in the holiday season. • Every year during the month of November, Charles River Bank holds a non-perishable food collection for the local food pantries including the Medway, Bellingham and Mendon Food Pantries as well as the Daily Bread Food Pantry in Milford. • In December we ‘adopt’ families for Christmas from the Sal-

vation Army. The employees adopt one of the families and buy gifts for them. For the other families we adopt, we create paper ornaments that list a family member on it (age, gender and gift request idea) and hang those ornaments on our Christmas trees in each of our branches for customers to take. Customers buy a gift and return it to the bank and we bring it back to the Salvation Army with the other gifts for that particular family.

Stop sitting on the fence! Mortgage rates have hit historic lows and now is the time to buy. Let me help you find that perfect home. Give me a call today for all your Real Estate needs.

Medway School News Millis School News Millis Athletic Fields Project Fall Update from the Medway School Holds Fundraiser Building Committee

A new fundraising effort, to revamp Millis Athletic Fields, kicked off in Millis on October 23 with a dinner dance at the Glen Ellen Country Club. The Millis Athletic Fields will be funded by private donations, corporate sponsorships, naming rights sponsors, grant monies and by the generosity of the Millis residents and businesses. More information follows: Are new athletic fields necessary? Yes. Currently, the amount of use demands new fields. Millis offers 17 sports and half take place outdoors. There is overlap in field use. Constant use prevents proper maintenance. New fields have not been added for over 30 years and since then, there has been a tremendous growth in youth sports. What exactly are we replacing? Football/Soccer/Lacrosse//Field Hockey field: By changing the field from grass to synthetic turf, the capacity of use on the field will double and will be lesscostly to maintain to an annual basis. Often the field appears “unused,” but this is necessary to preserve the grass. With turf, the field will be more available to all teams, and there is a market for renting the athletic complex for tournaments and camps. Track: Currently, the track is made of gravel and the track and field team can’t hold home meets. The new plan includes a new regulation all weather track (6-lanes) which would serve a dual purpose of accommodating a track meet, as well as a walking/running space for town residents when games and meets are not in session.

Lights: Currently, the lights cost $625 for a 3-hour period. New lights would cost $125 to run for the same time period and are better for the environment. Buildings: A new scoreboard; new press box complete with sound system as well as new concession stand Baseball Field: We will relocate the field and have a synthetic infield/outfield; new scoreboard; lighting ;irrigation, backstop, fencing and dugouts. With a new field and proper drainage, the field will be available on weekends for tournaments and for other Millis teams when the High School Team is not in session. Volleyball Court: We will relocate and reconstruct a new regulation court with lighting. Miscellaneous: In addition to the fields: new wells for irrigation; fencing, security gates; goal posts for practice field; accessible path from locker rooms to main gate; repair, repaint all outside buildings and vehicular access to practice field on school property. The Millis Athletic Fields Project Committee is a group of volunteers aimed at raising the estimated cost is $3.8 million dollars toward this effort, but the complex will develop into a self-sustaining, revenue-generating property, thereby increasing the value of what Millis can offer its residents and businesses. If you would like to help or join the committee, please send an email to info@millisfields.org, visit the website at www.millisfields.org, or find the project on Facebook. Donations can be sent to Millis Athletic Fields Project, P.O. Box 145, Millis, MA 02054.

The Medway School Building Committee was formed after Medway received approval of a “statement of interest” for repairing the Middle School. The approval was given by the Massachusetts School Building Authority or M.S.B.A. The M.S.B.A. decides what school building projects will get percentage of their costs reimbursed by the state. The formation of the building committee is required in a process that is governed at each at each phase by M.S.B.A. rules. The committee has been meeting since November of 2009. The membership of the building committee is based on M.S.B.A. rules and they must approve the appointments. The committee is chaired by Robert Tucker, Vice Chair of the Planning Board with construction management experience. The members are Board of Selectmen Chair Dennis Crowley, Medway resident Larry Muench who is a facilities manager for a private school, former Finance Committee Chair Larry Ellsworth, Capital Improvement Committee Vice Chair Tom Anderson, Town Accountant Carol Pratt, Board of Selectman member Andrew Espinosa, Town Administrator Suzanne Kennedy, Assistant Superintendant David Verdolino, Middle School Principal Armand Pires, Medway resident and former School Committee Vice Chair Tina Wright, Superintendant Judith Evans, School Committee Chair Debora Trindade, and School Committee member Shelley Wieler. The creation of a school building committee is required by the M.S.B.A. when a town applies for state reimbursement for a school renovation, building or repair project. The Medway School Building Committee’s job is to oversee the phases of the repair project for the Middle School. It represents town and school interests while working with and following M.S.B.A. regulations. The School Building Committee has achieved the following milestones in the process: • Obtained funding at the November 2009 Town meeting for the initial phases of the project as required by the M.S.B.A. • Compass Project Management (Compass) was selected as the Owner’s Project Manager in February of 2010 after a public procurement process following M.S.B.A. rules. The Owner’s Project Manager represents Medway’s interests during all phases of the project including meeting with the M.S.B.A. when

required. • After another public procurement process the experienced school project architectural firm of Knight, Bagge and Anderson, Inc. (K.B.A.) was retained in July. K.B.A. has developed the initial design schematics, repair recommendations and cost estimates for the repairs. • Compass, K.B.A., and the Building Committee have worked closely with the Mass. School Building Authority to obtain approval for each step in the process. • Met with the M.S.B.A. at key points in the process and the project is on track to be voted on at the September 29 meeting of the M.S.B.A. The repairs to this more than 250,000 square foot building will consist of: • Making the building A.D.A. compliant for accessibility as required by building codes • Addition of current Life- Safety code required sprinkler systems, upgrades and connection of the fire alarm systems which function separately for the 1960 and 1973 buildings • Replacement of windows which are all original to the building’s construction to improve building energy efficiency and natural lighting • Upgrades to electrical panels and wiring which is nearly all original to the 1960 and ’73 construction – many classrooms have only 2 outlet boxes limiting the use of technology for teaching • Replacement of heating and air handling units for halls, gyms, main office and the cafeteria • Replacement of floor tiles and gymnasium flooring adhesives • Upgrades to plumbing for heating systems, accessible bathrooms and water fountains While the town would need to pass a debt exclusion for the full amount, the M.S.B.A. will reimburse Medway for more than fifty percent of the approved costs. Rather than having to wait until full completion of the project the M.S.B.A. now reimburses on a rolling basis allowing faster repayment of town debt. Why should the town repair the building, why not just build a new one? Building a new school would cost in excess of 40 million dollars, yield a building about the half the size and require demolition or moth-

balling of the current building. The M.S.B.A. would not support replacement of a viable, repairable building. Medway would foot the entire bill for a new building. The M.S.B.A. supports this project. We know the M.S.B.A. will reimburse Medway for more than fifty percent of the approved costs for this repair project. In addition by doing this project now we can take advantage of lower construction and bonding costs. As the economy improves it’s expected these costs will only increase. Since August members of the committee have been meeting weekly to work on critical components of the project. It is reviewing the list of possible repairs, weighing the associated costs, benefits, and necessity of each repair. The impact of the repairs on the educational environment of the Middle School is being assessed. We are preparing for anticipated approval of the project at the September 29 M.S.B.A. meeting. When M.S.B.A. approval is received additional important work will remain to be done. The building committee must finalize the scope of the project. It must be presented to the Board of Selectman for placement on the warrant of the November 15 Town Meeting. The funding proposal must be finalized before Town Meeting. The Town Meeting must vote on the project and voters need to be informed in order to make a decision. If a positive vote is achieved at Town Meeting a special election must be held on funding the project. The building committee will work with the Board of Selectman to determine the best date for the special election. Once funding is voted the building committee will continue to work with Compass, our project manager, to oversee the phases of construction and work with the M.S.B.A. to ensure we follow requirements to receive maximum possible reimbursement. Nearly all of the critical building systems and components in the Middle School are original to the 1960 and 1973 construction. These repairs will improve the safety and educational environment for its more than 800 students. It will enhance the building as a community space for continuing adult education, sports and cultural events.

The town will benefit from the extension of the useful life of the Middle School building by 25 years.
