  • 8/24 3:28pm   Norfolk Recreation is offering a hands-on College Application Workshop for High School Seniors starting September 10. This program is taught by Gwynne Sawtelle, a Norfolk resident and experienced high school English teacher.
    The fall of senior year is a stressful time for high school students, especially if college application essays are on the to-do list. Wouldn't it be great to get a head start on the writing before sports practices and science homework start to fill your calendar? If so, consider signing up for this workshop taught by Gwynne Sawtelle, a Norfolk resident and high school English teacher heading into her 20th year. The class meets for three 90 minute sessions, and you'll have access to the teacher via email in between. The first will involve looking at sample essays and questions, brainstorming, and outline writing. During the second we'll edit and revise. During the last we'll fine-tune and look at some supplemental essay questions so you can get a head start on those, too! Register at www.virtualnorfolk.org/rec starting August 27. Class dates: Wednesdays, September 10, 17, 24 from 7:00-8:30pm. Location: Rec. Office, ground floor of Town Hall. Maximum participants: 10, Fee: $95. Any questions may be directed to Norfolk Recreation at 508-520-1315 or recreation@virtualnorfolk.org

  • 8/3 3:46pm   Jane & Paul's Farm has some beautiful corn right now, as JV said. Stop for a shop.
    Corn season brings up something I've been noticing over the past 10-15 yrs - the peeling back of husks and full de-husking of ears right at the market or farm. Growing up, we would never have done this. It was common knowledge that corn stays fresher in husks. And it was rude to peel n' throw back. Like the kid asking for the big pizza slice, leaving the smaller slice for his pal. Really?
    When, and how, did this shucking trend start? Roachies and Shaw's provide "husk buckets." Or they pre-shuck and shrink wrap. I don't understand it at all. The customer is paying for an inferior product by not buying the whole product which is sold by piece, not by pound.
    From "Good Eats", Season 2, Episode 14
    July 19, 2000
    Alton Brown

    Now, take sweet corn for instance. The endosperm is mostly made up of sugar. But when the ear is picked, the ear senses that something is seriously wrong and it deploys this enzyme which starts rapidly converting the sugar to a more easily metabolized starch.

    How fast does this happen? Well, let me put it this way. I know corn connoisseurs out there who actually put a pot of water on to boil before they go down to their market for their corn. In other words, once a again we're facing one of these. ... a culinary time bomb that is.

    You can also buy yourself some time by only choosing really fresh corn. When you pick up an ear take a really good look at it. Is it plump? Is the husk bright and moist? Is the cut end bright and moist? Shouldn't be any dark splotches there. And look at the tassel, important things, tassels. Should be slightly sticky and brown not matted and black. A black tassel signifies a mature ear and that means more starch than sugar.

    From shelflifeadvice.com Susan Brewer, Ph.D., University of Illinois, Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition
    Jun 03, 2009
    Courtesy John Gregerson

    Store sweet corn in the refrigerator. Its sugar and vitamin C content will diminish in warm temperatures, diminishing both flavor and nutritional value. Keep the husk attached during storage as it helps corn retain its moisture content. If the husk has been removed, the refrigerated fresh corn should be loosely wrapped or put in a lightly perforated plastic bag so that air can circulate around it. That will prevent Clostridium botulinim from growing and producing botulism toxin.

    Any thoughts on the development of this de-husk trend? The client is ensuring themselves an inferior product.

  • 8/3 3:42pm   It's not to late to sign your little one up for preschool! There are still a few spaces available!
    Hello, my name is Laurie Hayes and I am the owner and teacher at My Little preschool. My program is designed for children 2.5 to 4 years of age. Children do not need to be potty trained to attend! The hours are Tuesday thru Friday from 9:00-1:00, following the school year calendar. Parents have the option to choose 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 an age appropriate curriculum. The daily activities may include: art, cooking, science, songs and stories, music, and outside gross motor play, to name a few.

  • 8/3 3:39pm   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!

  • 7/27 6:41pm   I love me some smooth pavement.
    Occasionally I point out that our DPW is very good. Lately they seem everywhere: Park St. got repaired, Miller patched. Sightlines project at corner on Myrtle is underway. They did Leland inc new lines and they brush-hogged the first 6ft of roadside slop. It is noticed. We walk alot too and although we dont walk by Main & Canterberry, its nice to see sidewalk connections. Paying higher taxes isnt much fun but these touches make me happy. P.s. We need some more sports fields: Pond St. is always too busy, needs at least some rest/alt fields.

Thank God your kids weren't hurt and the dog will be alright. This is why you see people walking their dog with a stick: It's to ward off the other dog.

  • 7/21 12:09pm   I live close to the Freeman Kennedy School and enjoy the opportunity to walk the grounds with my dog. He is always on his leash and we are very diligent about cleaning up after him. This past Friday evening my dog was viciously attacked by another dog who was not on a leash. While my son and his friend were fending this dog off, the female owner ran at them screaming that her dog was not a "friendly" dog. She then proceeded to grab her dog, jump in her car, and leave without ever checking on the condition of my dog.
    My dog has had two vet visits as a result of this attack and thankfully he is OK and will not need surgery.
    If your dog is not friendly, keep it at home and away other dogs and people. And certainly don't come back to the Freeman because I'm looking for you!

    I kind of agree about the landscapers but it bothers me more when they prune my neighbors shrubs for 2 weekdays with gas powered trimmers on my weekday off.
    The round-a-bouts. I have given up because most people do not have a clue about traffic rules. In too much of a hurry and on the phone. I prefer to remember my driver education instructor always telling us to look out for the other guy. Good advice. Has worked for 46 years. I never go into the round-about with my eyes not wide open. Are the cars that bother you also Audi's and Land Rover's? However, on the serious side, if we put a part time police officer, yes, on a detail, at both round-a-bouts writing tickets we could pay the officer and have $$ to fix the roads !!
    Have no problem with dogs. My neighbors all walk around the neighborhood with bags of doggie poop! Does anyone else think pets are in charge !!!
    Pond Street ~ Sounds to me that the Rec. Dept. should monitor this and call the highway garage and provide more trash barrels and more frequent pickups. Would you rather people throw it out their car window on the way home?
    Finally ~ the new Kids Place playground. Did it ever occur to you, since RI is a 15 minute ride from here, that grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends , etc. could be visiting or watching childen in Norfolk? I would only be upset about this if I saw RI plates at the dump. Oh. Pardon me. The Transfer / Recycling Station.
    One curmudgeon to another. Lighten up and go with the flow. There are bigger battles to fight.

  • 7/5 6:11pm   BF: Getting together to discuss it won't do a thing. I have a noise issue from a business on my end of Seekonk, that is ridulous. I have held off going officially to Bob Bullock (I spoke to him informally, already) because it has been quieter over there. I don't know if he went and spoke to them or not. I was supposed to get back to him and I personally don't want to play this card until I need to. However, if you want to get a group together (I'm in to support you), and go to Bob Bullock, in town hall, that is your only recourse, in my opinion, IF the noise is coming from businesses.. I can tell you if someone is working on their residential property, or has workmen doing something, then the 7-7 Mon-Sat will apply. At least check this yourself with the police to see if my information is correct, though I am pretty sure it is. Get my email from Andras if you wish. I totally agree: We didn't sign up for this by moving to Norfolk.

  • 7/5 6:10pm   Well, AB, let your complaint flag fly... I couldn't agree more (perhaps we are kindred spirits)... just be braced for anger and indignation from the loyalists. You HAVE to tell your story to Town Hall to possibly GET RESULTS re the sightlines, the roads and the hanging bushes. I don't understand why people think posting here will do them any good re town-management issues, though all are free to do so, of course. Trimming the bushes SURELY cannot be too expensive to do. I've also been meaning to say something about the bush by the corner house @ Seekonk and Main, but I wonder if that bush is on private property. (I don't see HOW a house can be historic covered with vinyl, but let that go. The truly old house is the one diagonally across the street with the [...] assortment of refuse in the yard.) There's also the matter of the flowering trees near the cemetery sign, but they will soon lose their flowers and you can mostly see through them. However, I have a tall vehicle.
    - AB-G

  • 7/5 6:09pm   AB, Your concerns are pretty serious. You should consider a citizens arrest of those out-of-staters using our new playground. These immigration issues are just so complex, would we have to arrest the children too and deport them back to RI? Perhaps the police could do a strip search of all those driving cars with out of state plates as they cross our Norfolk borders. I have to go see my dad in RI this afternoon and I am ready for anything. You keep worrying so we don't have to!

    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.

    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!
