  • 9/17 1:34pm   AB-G Yes a car did crash into the bushes and cemetery wall, dislodging the top stone. How it happened is a mystery as the car hit the wall head on. Did not see another vehicle as I passed by when they were towing the car away.

  • 9/17 1:27pm   All are cordially invited to an Auction Fun-Night at the Norfolk Senior Center on Friday, October 3rd (5 p. m. to 8 p. m.). Admittance is free and Norfolk's very own Moderator and Council on Aging Chairman, Jay Talerman, will be donning an auctioneer's hat for the occasion as he describes a variety of interesting items submitted for bids. Articles to be auctioned (may be antiques but are not restricted to timeworn items) will include attic treasures and basement finds, knick-knacks, collectibles, memorabilia, nostalgia, signed and unsigned sports and entertainment items, as well as the strange, the artistic, and the not-so-artistic. Due to the generous support of the Friends of the Norfolk Council on Aging, complimentary soft drinks, wine, appetizers, and a variety of snacks and refreshments will also be available to add to the evening's fun and camaraderie.
    Attention All Submitters: To submit an item for the auction, participants must sign-up at the front desk of the Senior Center on or before September 30th. Bidders, observers, or guests do not have to register. Come one, come all! All proceeds will revert to the owners of the submitted items and submissions should include a brief description of the item or items for bid, must be accompanied by the owners on the night of the event, are limited to two items, and they must be removed promptly if unsold. No heavy items or heavy furniture. The rule of thumb is that if you can carry it in, it is eligible. If you have a question regarding your submission, please call (508) 528-4430. Submitters are encouraged to register early as there will be space limitations restricting the total number of submissions permitted for the event.
    Do you have a friend, neighbor, or relative residing in Norfolk who has yet to visit the Senior Center? This event can also provide an ideal introduction to Norfolk's beautiful Senior Center, its staff, its volunteers, and the many services available to the community.
    To receive a schedule of all Senior Center activities, call (508) 528-4430 or visit the Council on Aging site at bit.ly/XR2e2c The Norfolk Senior Center is located at 28 Medway Branch Road and is open to all Norfolk residents from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m.

  • 9/14 10:22pm   The Norfolk Department of Public Works has installed the second historic information panel in the park by the Mill Pond on Main Street in City Mills. Designed by members of the Norfolk Historical Commission, the layout and digital master was completed by students at the Tri-County RVT High School and the fiber glass panel and stand fabricated by Pannier of Pennsylvania. This is the second of five panels in the series being funded by Community Preservation Funds. The first panel was completed and installed on Town Hill last summer on the site of the First Meeting House and traces the History of Town Hill and the area around it.
    The City Mills panel traces the history of this western section of Norfolk which was annexed from Franklin when Norfolk was incorporated in1870 and made up almost one fifth of the new town. Two other panels have been completed and will be installed soon. The first, Highland Lake Grove Park will be located on Fales Park Road which was the access road from Main Street to Highland Lake and tells the story of the Railroad Excursion Park that operated on the Lake from 1875 - 1900. The third will be sited at 24 Campbell Street at the entry to Fales Memorial Park Preserve and is titled : Settlement a Stop River Falls. The fifth panel is scheduled to start the process of digitalizing the layout at Tri-County shortly and should be ready for installation early in 2015. This one will depict the History of Pondville and will be located at on the green at the intersection of Valley Street and Old Pond Road.

  • 9/14 9:55pm   The Preamble to the U.S. constitution is "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
    Lincoln's Gettysburg Address closes with "... that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
    Many people feel that "we the people" have lost control of our government - that the policies and practices of our government are set by, and are for the benefit of, large organizations (domestic, foreign, and multinational) - not the citizens of the United States. This concern is shared by people across the political spectrum - Tea Party people, conservative Republicans, conservative Democrats, moderate Republicans, moderate Democrats, liberal Republicans, liberal Democrats, Libertarians, Liberals, etc.
    There is a non-partisan effort to wrest control of the government from the large organizations and return it to the citizens, as the founders intended. There are several different groups committed to this effort.
    The author Jeffrey Clements is on a book tour for the new edition of his book "Corporations Are Not People". His last stop in Massachusetts is at the new Franklin High School at 218 Oak Street in Franklin, MA on Monday, 22-Sep-2014 at 7:30 PM. All are welcome at this free forum. The format will be a talk by Jeff Clements followed by a public question and answer session. In his presentation, Clements will offer both a bipartisan and non-partisan argument that "individuals need to join the historic work to overcome partisan divides and re-engage in self-government by all Americans - community by community, state by state, and ultimately, in Washington itself." Clements will discuss the types of actions that "ordinary citizens" can take.
    If you are concerned that "we the people" are not being well served by our government and our voices have little influence in comparison with the voices of large organizations, consider coming to hear Jeff talk about the problem and how we might approach solving it.

  • 9/14 9:47pm   Howdy Neighbors,
    Does anyone know where to buy K1 Kerosene? I just got a kerosene heater for my outdoor garage to take the edge off while working out there during the winter. The instructions caution to only use K1 grade (clear) kerosene, not the "red-dye" kerosene. Apparently, most fuel oil suppliers sell the red-dye type, indicating that it is not taxed for transportation use. From what I have been reading on the net, the red-dye kerosene smells and leaves deposits in the heater. Any assist?
    Thanks.

  • 9/14 9:01pm   VS - I am a Town resident and also a taxpayer as you are. I am also not pleased about having to spend two years replacing the brick that was previously installed in the round-abouts and crosswalks in the downtown area. However, the contractor did not choose the product that they installed. The bricks were made of concrete and were eaten by road salt. Some combination of the Town and State (I believe there was State funding for part of this project) approved the bricks and it falls on them as the Owner to pay for repairs. There is only one town near us that spent the extra money up front for granite. Everyone else has replaced what they did or dealt with the deterioration. Like it or not, we're on the hook.

  • 9/14 8:57pm   Does anyone know the correct address of the Norfolk Public Library?
    In 1951 it was on Main Street and the entrance was through the Old School House.
    In 1985 the entrance was moved to the new expansion on North Street on the back side of Town Hill.
    Today we enter the library parking lot from Liberty Lane with the entrance facing Liberty Lane.
    The current address is still listed as Main Street.

  • 9/6 11:23pm   Here is a recommendation from a very satisfied customer of EcoFriendly Roof Cleaning. My roof was in good shape but had so much lichen and black mold that my wife was convinced that we needed a new roof. I did some research and contracted Charles at Eco and $675.00 later my problem was solved and guaranteed for two years! I have no financial interest in this company other than wanting to promote his exceptional work.

  • 9/1 8:26pm   Halfway to St. Paddy's Day Bash
    While the calendar will soon say September, for a few hours next month it will feel like March 17. The first Halfway to St. Paddy's Day Bash will be held at Lake Pearl Luciano's to support the Massachusetts Chapter of The Cure Stars Now. The fundraising event, to benefit efforts to find a cure for brain stem tumor (DIPG), will provide a complimentary beer and wine happy hour from 7-8 p.m., followed by an Irish-themed buffet dinner and dessert. There will be live music by the local group, Band MLC, and an Irish step dance presentation, along with an impressive silent auction.
    The driving forces behind the event are John and Lisa Mackintosh whose 9-year-old daughter Nicole died from DIPG in 2011. DIPG is also the same cancer that affects Danny Nickerson, the young boy from Foxboro who received hundreds of thousands of birthday cards. ``Because there is little industry investment in childhood cancers,'' explains John Mackintosh, ``most do not garner the media attention that Danny has. Many children have died from DIPG in our area. The disease typically strikes children in the 5-10 year age group. It's the worst disease I've encountered. There has been VERY little investment in understanding the disease so the news to parents at diagnosis is the same today as it was 30 or 40 years ago. No cure. No known cause. This is simply unacceptable and this is why we are committed to funding research that will make a difference for children in the future.''
    All proceeds benefit The Cure Starts Now Foundation to fund vital pediatric cancer research in honor of Nicole. It is in her memory that her parents continue to raise money to help other children who face a similar battle. ``With over $2 million in research already funded through The Cure Starts Now, we hope this event will allow us to take one more step towards the cure,'' Mackintosh says.
    To register for the event visit the Halfway to St. Paddy's Day web page. Registration will close on Sept. 8th and there will be no tickets at the door.
    There will be many exciting auction items including:
    a. Patriots Tickets
    b. Red Sox Tickets in the State Street Pavilion (including a Fenway parking pass and Sox caps) for the Fenway ``Halfway to St. Paddy's Day'' night.
    c. Limo night on the town
    d. Ski lift tickets
    e. Golf passes
    f. Spa items and designer jewelry
    g. Fine art
    h. Family portraits by professional photographers
    i. Catered meal for 6 in your home.
    j. ``Steak & Clay'' BBQ and sport shooting event passes
    k. Gift cards to local restaurants
    l. Autographed sports memorabilia by Dustin Pedroia, Joe Andruzzi, and Jordyn Wieber

Admittance is free and Norfolk's very own Moderator and Council on Aging Chairman, Jay Talerman, will be donning an auctioneer's hat for the occasion as he describes a variety of interesting items submitted for bids. Articles to be auctioned (may be antiques but are not restricted to timeworn items) will include attic treasures and basement finds, knick-knacks, collectibles, memorabilia, nostalgia, signed and unsigned sports and entertainment items, as well as the strange, the artistic, and the not-so-artistic. Due to the generous support of the Friends of the Norfolk Council on Aging, complimentary soft drinks, wine, appetizers, and a variety of snacks and refreshments will also be available to add to the evening's fun and camaraderie.
    Attention All Submitters: To submit an item for the auction, participants must sign-up at the front desk of the Senior Center on or before September 30th. Bidders, observers, or guests do not have to register. Come one, come all! All proceeds will revert to the owners of the submitted items and submissions should include a brief description of the item or items for bid, must be accompanied by the owners on the night of the event, are limited to two items, and they must be removed promptly if unsold. No heavy items or heavy furniture. The rule of thumb is that if you can carry it in, it is eligible. If you have a question regarding your submission, please call (508) 528-4430. Submitters are encouraged to register early as there will be space limitations restricting the total number of submissions permitted for the event.

    My Little Preschool

    My name is Laurie Hayes and I am the owner and teacher at My Little preschool. I have always wanted to have my own preschool business, and after many years of working in all facets of childcare, in 2008, I finally made my dream come true. After remodeling my home with a classroom and play yard, My Little Preschool was born. The program is designed for children 2.5 to 4 years of age. Children do not need to be potty trained. The hours are Tuesday thru Friday from 9:00-1:00, following the school year calendar. Parents have the option of choosing their child's schedule in terms of how many days, and which days they want their child to attend. I provide the children's snack and lunch, and have created a fun, age appropriate curriculum. The daily activities may include: art, cooking, science, sensory play, songs and stories, music, and outside gross motor play, to name a few. Please contact me for more information! Excellent references provided upon request.

    Facebook page at (https://www.facebook.com/mylittlepreschoolnorfolk). I can also be contacted at (508) 528-7373 or send an email to littlepreschool@aol.com for more information!

    Babysitting Available, August and September

    Babysitting available in August and September by a lifelong Norfolk resident and 2013 graduate of Elon University.

    I spent much of high school and college babysitting regularly for a few families in town and volunteered and worked for Norfolk Recreation's children's camps for years. I absolutely love being with children, spending time outside, swimming, and organizing games. Most recently, I served as a health educator, teaching middle and high school students about health. I have two months off before I start my new job with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Michigan.

    If interested, I would love to meet your family! I can be reached via e-mail, jennieproto@gmail.com, and phone, (774) 571-1565. Thank you!
