  • 5/3 10:08pm   A pair of glasses were found at the Pond Street Recreational Complex (soccer field) on Tuesday, April 28. If you think they may be yours, please call or email Norfolk Recreation. Our number is 508-520-1315 and our email is recreation@virtualnorfolk.org. Thank you,
    - AP, Recreation Director

  • 5/3 10:07pm   Any mulch deliveries in the area that are avordable?
    - BR (#1)

  • 5/3 10:06pm   I didn't realize there are two different versions of the Country Gazette. The one I received at home on May 1 did not have the article on page A-2 that my friend's paper had. The article headline is ``Questions Raised over Candidates Record''. One might think it was referring to a candidate's voting record, but if you have a chance to see the article, you'll realize it is his behavior record that is in question including a recent arrest (December). The article is about Kevin Doolin, a current Recreation Commissioner. I think a person that has had ``at least a half a dozen incidents where the police have had to intervene'' as this article states based on information from the Norfolk Police, should not hold any elected or appointed position and he should certainly not be elected to the position of Selectman. Mr. Doolin, please withdraw and please resign.
    - RP

  • 5/3 10:03pm   There is an election on Tuesday, May 5th [...]. I pulled it from The Sun Chronicle.
    NORFOLK -- As is usually the case for a town election, there is a race for board of selectmen in Tuesday's annual town election.

    Recreation commission member Kevin Doolin looks to unseat one-term Selectman Scott Bugbee, the board's current chairman who previously served on the recreation commission.

    Voters will cast their ballots at Freeman-Kennedy School on Boardman Street from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    CANDIDATES:

    Scott Bugbee Age: 51.

    Family: Wife Liz. Two children, Tucker and Emily.

    Education: Bachelor of science in business administration with concentration in finance from the University of Vermont.

    Occupation: Director of sales, Investment Metrics

    Political Experience: Recreation commission 2010-2013; Board of selectmen 2012-present.

    Party Affiliation: Republican.

    Top Priority: ``I want to continue what I have started on many fronts. I want to continue the expansion of the commercial tax base which means continuing to work on bringing appropriate commercial expansion to our downtown area as well as in the town's other commercial areas. I want to continue the possible regionalizing of certain town services to provide the most efficient and cost effective services for our town. I want to continue to work with the other committees and boards that work so diligently to serve Norfolk.''

    Position on Issue 1: What needs to be improved in town?

    ``Obviously we need to continue to work on improving our roads. This is a high-profile concern especially after the extreme weather we had this winter. I believe our schools and public safety departments are operating well but we are always looking to make improvements to better serve the residents of Norfolk.''

    Position on Issue 2: How would you help maintain town services and hold down taxes?

    ``I think that it is vital to expand the town's commercial tax base but it is equally important to maintain Norfolk's small town charm. We have not had an operating budget override since 2005. During this time we have had to make budget cuts and staff reductions, but we have been able to avoid making cuts in services to our residents. I am director of sales at Investment Metrics in Norfolk and have also worked as an investment adviser for over 10 years so I feel that my financial background is an asset during the budgetary process.''

    Favorite book or movie: Movie ``It's a Wonderful Life.''

    Who would you most like to have dinner with and why? ``Honestly I want to have dinner with both of my children and wife, all four of us together.''

    Quote: ``9/11 Never Forget.''

    Kevin Doolin Age: 54.

    Address: 13 Sweetland Farm Road

    Family: Married to Angie Doolin and children Erin and Conor.

    Education: Suffolk University, bachelor of science in journalism

    Occupation: Owner of K.D. Cleaning Co.

    Political Experience: Currently serving a three-year-term on recreation commission.

    Party Affiliation: Unenrolled

    Top Priority: Addressing high taxes and improving town roads.

    Position on Issue 1: What needs to be improved in town?

    ``The escalating Norfolk residential tax rate to $17.66 per $1,000. This is burdening our senior citizens and middle class wage earners. Norfolk residents and taxpayers deserve great public roads in addition to our great schools and public safety. If elected, I would propose a warrant article spring or fall during my term and earmark the $250,000 town savings/earnings from Norfolk's Recycling/Transfer Station's two solar arrays'' for roadwork.

    Position on Issue 2: How would you help maintain town services and hold down taxes?

    ``Norfolk needs line-item budgeting so residents and taxpayers are given a clear picture and ability to make personal town financial judgments. We need to unbundle the budget. One of my first year goals would be to reduce Norfolk's $30,000,000 budget by $1,000,000. We need to substantially reduce Norfolk's litigation costs. Let's broker compromise and support residents, business owners, developers and land owners.''

    Favorite book or movie: Movie ``Inside Llewyn Davis.''

    Who would you most like to have dinner with and why: ``Pat Metheny. My inspiration through life. Music nurtures the soul.''

    Quote: ``Stay involved. Speak up for the children. And no matter what, shoot straight.''

  • 5/3 9:19pm   Today I attended the funeral of Jim Foley. For those of you that do not know Mr. Foley, he was a firefighter / EMT, former Deputy Fire Chief and former head of the highway department for the town of Norfolk. Today while driving through town I noticed that the flag on the Town Hill and at the Town Hall were at half staff, however the flag at the fire department was not. I'm not sure if the town had the flags at half staff for Mr. Foley or not but I do know that if the town ordered the flags at half staff then ALL town facilities must follow. I am a 10 year veteran of the Air Force and I find this to be disrespectful. The fire department should be ashamed of itself for its lack of respect for the death of a person who dedicated years to serving the town. I demand the fire department post an apology to not only the Foley family but also the town for such a display.
    Justin Snow - former Norfolk resident and also step son to the deputy fire chief of Norfolk.

    [Update for my previous post. The town has told me that they have reached out to the Foley family and have apologized. - JS]

  • 4/21 7:07pm   Opening of Fales Memorial Park on Sunday, April 26, 2015
    The Ceremony for Opening the Fales Memorial Park Preserve will be conducted at 2:00 P.M. at 24 Campbell Street, Norfolk, by the Arch Bridge. This location will serve as the main entrance to the Park. The land that has been designated as Fales Park at Highland Lake in 2008 was purchased with Community Preservation funds. This tract on the east side of Highland Lake replaces the original 13 Acres of Fales land that Bertha Fales donated to the Town of Norfolk in 1943. The original parcel was located north of Campbell Street on the west side of the Stop River. This land was taken by eminet domain in 1980 and became part of the Chales River Valley Natural Storage Area under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Norfolk Historical Commission has spearheaded the effort to establish this park commerorating the contributions of the Fales Family to the Town of Norfolk. Finally 72 years after Bertha donated land for a Memorial Park it will become a reality on April 26, 2015. The Norfolk Historical Commission and the Walpole Historical Society invite you all to join us to mark this occasion.

  • 4/21 7:02pm   Norfolk Lions Community Day, Saturday June 6, 2015
    Save the date! June may seem like a long way off, but the Norfolk Lions Community Day team is already planning this annual event. This years event resurrects the original Old Tyme Day theme from years past when times were a little slower and more affordable. Community Day 2015 will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 11:00 until 4:00. Once again the Holmes Family has graciously agreed to host the event at their property at 22 Myrtle Street, Norfolk.
    This will be the Lions' 23rd year bringing a day of family fun and entertainment. The Lions goal is to provide a country fair type environment including music, dancing, games, petting animals, hayrides, train rides, pie eating contest , foam for kids to play in, food and historical displays. This is an event for the entire Norfolk Community to come out, celebrate and get to know neighbors. The Lions welcome your participation and invite any Norfolk business, organization, neighborhood or group to participate in Community Day. Groups and organizations (including corporations) can take part in a number of ways, whether by setting up a booth or tent, sponsoring an activity or entertainment, or simply by becoming a sponsor. There is no set fee to participate, but we do ask that you provide something in return. For example, if your company wants to have a booth, then you should have something to offer that will add to the fun such as a game or activity, or provide financial support that will be used towards other expenses. You can also sponsor an event or entertainment. We are flexible; just tell us what you have in mind.
    Help make Norfolk Community Day 2015 one of the best and join the fun. You may contact the Norfolk Lions Club at norfolkcommunityday@gmail.com or call Frank Z. @ 508-520-0203 or Patti M. @ 508-520-0540.

  • 4/9 7:15pm   My husband [was] away in the service and it has been a very hard winter to be alone. Not to mention being 6 months pregnant. This is the first winter in our house and had no idea about ice dams that form under these extreme conditions. With water starting to leak into the house I was in panic! Luckily a friend was able to point me in the direction of the company Robert Roofing and Gutters. On the same day they were able to come out clear my roof and treat the ice. Robert was extremely professional and was very knowledgeable. I could not be happier with the service they provided. If you are suffering from ice dams or just need the snow removed from your roof I highly suggest calling Robert at (857) 247-8709.

It won't be soon, as it's largly in shade. The fields themselves are washing loads of streams along the loop. It is beautiful and quiet. Soon, some day after tax time, It will be melted off & dry again.

    From: David A. Lawson, Director
    Date: March 26, 2015
    Re: Aerial Larval Control Application

    Please be advised that the Norfolk County Mosquito Control District will be conducting aerial larval control helicopter applications for 2 to 4 days; some time between April 13 and April 24, 2015 . These applications are not sprays, but instead are granular applications of a biological larvicide applied to wetlands only. As always, the weather in the spring is unpredictable, and for this reason the District cannot pin down these dates with any more accuracy at this time. As the time approaches, the District will narrow down application dates, and will notify you via e-mail, fax or phone. Please inform your Fire and Police Departments of this scheduled application. The District will contact, each morning, those public safety departments in whose towns the application will be taking place. We receive very few complaints from residents regarding these applications. Many residents who live near the wetlands we treat are familiar with the application. Nevertheless a general notification to the public is appropriate (Town Website, local newspapers, cable, and message boards). Thank you for your assistance.

  • 3/29 8:17pm   All Norfolk Parents, I have one question to ask, do you really have 100% confidence in your KP school district and how it treats your kids? Are they getting the education you are paying for? Would you like to? I am writing today to tell you about an extraordinary individual that lives in Norfolk, and who is currently running for school committee and who deserves your vote for this important position.
    Patrick Touhey is a man of strong character, a Patriot who understands much about politics, local and otherwise, and who has dedicated his personal time and efforts to a variety of town offices and who is now running for the KP school district Board position.
    A vote for Patrick would mean that information will be forthcoming and transparent, that the Board would continue to make positive changes for the sake of the children, and that organization and management of the schools would be as progressive as it has to be.
    So please Vote for Patrick Touhey- your children deserve it.

The right of way is the same area through which the NSTAR (now Eversource) high-tension wires run in town. As for the "open house", there were roughly 25 Spectra representatives standing at tables and alongside aerial photos, explaining the project and their point of view as to why it is good.
    Representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission were also in attendance, to explain where in the application process Spectra now is positioned.

  • 3/29 7:49pm   RE Spectra Energy was at the Town Library. And this is what I learned. The new 24 inch diameter pipe has 1 inch thick walls. Is always buried at least 3 ft. below the surface. It will mostly be under or adjacent to the power lines. Also follow the old rail bed. Spectra owns the pipe and not the gas. They make money by letting gas suppliers use their pipe. They will drill at an angle under the Charles River and the send the pipe through, never disturbing the river. The old existing small gas pipe was installed in 1966. It is said to be in good shape and should continue being in service 30 years or more. New pipe project should start in 2017, completed in 10 months.
    I'm glad to see the investment being made to help the supply of energy flowing smoothly.

  • 3/22 12:27pm   KD, thanks for the heads up about Spectra's library meeting. It's great that more energy choices are being made available to oil. The collective benefit of the disruptive technology has been helping all of our residents this cold heating season. Will there be a separate pipe for the "fracked" gas or does it just transport through some political conduit?
    Thank god for the utility rate break this year - yet it barely offsets the $17.66 tax rate - this is much more damaging to Norfolk than fracking ever will be!
    - PC

  • 3/22 11:43am   KD: In the spirit of full disclosure ~ I don't work for Spectra, I don't even have natural gas at my home in Norfolk. But your post is lacking. The the new line that Spectra is installing is in addition to an existing line that is already in place and has been there for over 30 years. I really don't think you can say that any of this gas is fracked ~ (a bit misleading). If you haven't noticed that your electric bill has gone up ~ any idea why?. The overall demand for natural gas by consumers (most of our electricity is produced from natural gas) has taxed the infrastructure. There isn't a natural gas shortage, the system can't deliver the amount that is needed to met the demands. So unless you are willing to conserve energy...

They plan to put a 24 inch pipeline of fracked natural gas from New York to Hingham, passing through Norfolk. This has generated opposition in several towns in Massachusetts. Residents may want to come out to this and see where the pipeline will be placed in Norfolk and what safety concerns may arise.

  • 3/13 9:26pm   To LD regarding why Healthy Pet Supply has been closed so often in the last few weeks, we have also heard this concern from others and would like to pass along some information to all our customers.
    As you know in this extreme winter weather, we were asked to stay off the roads multiple times by state and town officials. My plow broke down with a transmission problem after the January storm, and there were multiple times after that when we could not even get out of our own 130 yard driveway, until someone else could plow us out and this got fairly expensive. One time the snow was so heavy that the plow truck that came to our rescue, also got stuck halfway up our driveway and we had to help dig him out so he could back up, but came back with a different vehicle to finish the job.
    Add to this that I have health issues including extremely painful gout, and a very cranky back that gets severely aggravated by snow shoveling. Due to our dead plow issue, I ended up having to shovel by hand more then any other time in memory. This has been the Winter From Hell but hopefully we can now get back to our normal work schedule, which is Monday and Friday 10am to 6pm, Tues-Weds-Thurs from 9:30am to 7pm, and Saturday 10am to 2pm. Call ahead to check that we are open, the store number is 508-541-7387.
    We also had some problems with deliveries, receiving products from our suppliers, and heating issues at the store. We had to deal with roof snow removal and ice dams at home. Our mailbox was hit and taken down so we have been receiving our personal mail at the store since, please be sure to thank our post office workers for their hard work in dealing with all these problems.
    We apologize for any inconvenience but hope you will understand how difficult it has been. Please continue to support our store because we barely make enough to pay the bills never mind profit, and cannot survive without our customers.
    Thank you for reading, stop by anytime and we will try to work with you to accommodate your pet needs.

  • 3/5 7:57pm   Norfolk Lions Community Day is June 6, 2015
    Save the date! June may seem like a long way off, but the Norfolk Lions Community Day team is already planning this annual event.
    This year's event resurrects the original ``Old Tyme Day'' theme from years past when times were a little slower and more affordable. Community Day 2015 will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 11:00 until 4:00. Once again the Holmes Family has graciously agreed to host the event at their property at 22 Myrtle Street, Norfolk.
    This will be the Lions' 23rd year bringing a day of family fun and entertainment. The Lions' goal is to provide a country fair type environment including music, dancing, games, petting animals, hayrides, train rides, pie eating contest, foam for kids to play in, food and historical displays. This is an event for the entire Norfolk Community to come out, celebrate and get to know neighbors.
    The Lions welcome your participation and invite any Norfolk business, organization, neighborhood or group to participate in Community Day. Groups and organizations (including corporations) can take part in a number of ways, whether by setting up a booth or tent, sponsoring an activity or entertainment, or simply by becoming a sponsor.
    There is no set fee to participate, but we do ask that you provide something in return. For example, if your company wants to have a booth, then you should have something to offer that will add to the fun such as a game or activity, or provide financial support that will be used towards other expenses. You can also sponsor an event or entertainment. We are flexible; just tell us what you have in mind.
    Help make Norfolk Community Day 2015 one of the best and join the fun. You may contact the Norfolk Lions Club at norfolkcommunityday@gmail.com or call Patti M. @ 508-520-0540 or Frank Z. @ 508-520-0203.

    • 3/1 2:00am   Hi readers of Norfolknet... With all the talk of ice dams, snow rakes and the hiring of person's to clear off roofs and to handle the destruction of ice dams, I am providing a few images of what a properly snow raked roof and ice dam breaking should look like. A lot of guys are clearing roofs then applying large amounts of salt and other ice melt chemicals which may or may not work but, what definitely does work is to cut channels through the ice at the gutter line every 3 ~ 4 feet as shown. The channels cut have been created very carefully using a hatchet... If one is careful, the roof shingles and gutter are not damaged.
      Hope this information proves helpful.

    • 3/1 1:59am   The PC Handyman is pleased to announce:
      ``Computer Safety'' class ~ Thursday March 26, 7:00 PM
      The threat to your privacy and security that comes with your use of your computer and the internet worsens every day. Malware like the Conficker worm gained national recognition, and people are becoming more and more aware of the increasing risks that online activity poses, although they don't fully understand them. But, we need our computers, so we need to be aware of what's going onout there, and we need to stay protected.
      Virus writing used to be a competitive thing--the most widespread viruses gained attention and bragging rights for the developer. Today, things are different--it's now all about taking your money or stealing your personal information or even your identity.
      So, I have developed a seminar designed to teach you about the various threats that you and your children may encounter through the use of your computer, and how to protect yourself and your PC from them. Some topics to be included:
      -Downloading ``free'' software, music, and games--the risks to your computer and privacy
      -Updates ~ should I or shouldn't I?
      -Protecting your personal information
      -Phishing--what it is and how it can hurt you
      -Online shopping--is it safe?
      -The dangers of social networking sites and how to use them safely
      -Virus protection and other security software--how much do you need, and which are the good ones?
      -Malware (viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, etc.) - what's out there, how do you get infected, and how do you get rid of it
      And much more.
      When: Thursday March 26, at 7:00 PM. About 1 1/2 hours, unless we need to go longer.
      Location: First Universalist Church, 262 Chestnut St., Franklin. Plenty of parking.
      Cost: $30 - prepayment requested because I have to commit to the rental space
      To register: Call 508 346 3502 or email: info@pchman.com
      If you would be interested in other computer courses, I'd like to know that too.

    • 2/10 9:28pm   I'm thinking about developing a seminar designed to teach you about the various threats that you and your children may encounter through the use of your computer, and how to protect yourself and your PC from them. Some topics to be included:
      - Downloading ``free'' software, music, and games--the risks to your computer and privacy
      - Protecting your personal information
      - Phishing--what it is and how it can hurt you
      - Online shopping--is it safe?
      - The dangers of social networking sites (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.) and how to use them safely
      - Virus protection and other security software--how much do you need, and which are the good ones?
      - Malware (viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, etc.) - what's out there, how do you get infected, and how do you get rid of it
      And much more.
      I'm looking to see if there's any interest in a class like this. It would likely run 1 to 1 1/2 hours, and cost around 30 dollars. It would be held at a local hall most likely on a weekday evening. Additional classes may follow.
      If you would be interested in a course like this, please email info@pchman.com and let me know. If you would be interested in other computer courses, I'd like to know that too.

    • 2/5 10:50am   There is a lot of junk mail being sent to addresses that have appared on Norfolknet, so I've turned off all box###@norfolknet relays. It's hitting all the norfolknet.com post-to addresses, too. Turning off the realays won't help those being spammed directly because they've already harvested the addresses from the pages. The emails are coming from machines all over the world, so I suspect they've been infected by a virus that turns them into spammer bots. The "From" senders are just as much a victim as the recipients.
      Needless to say this is all very frustrating, and I apologize to everyone. One more nail in the coffin of email, I guess.

    FREE Gordon Laughead Upright Piano

    Piano needs tuning but is otherwise in great shape. This is a very well built piano from a top-of-the-line manufacturer. Piano must be picked up at residence.

    A Google search revealed the following:

    "The G. Laughhead brand has been compared to some of the finest spinet-style pianos; very reliable and durable.

    The Gordon Laughead Piano Co. was established in Michigan, in 1948. They entered the piano manufacturing business much later than others; however, the instruments are of a very high caliber. This piano has a very pleasant tone quality and the key/action mechanism is as smooth as virtually any other 36" scale piano.
