  • 10/19 11:59pm   *The Bridgewater Triangle* Screening at Norfolk Public Library
    Aaron Cadieux and Manny Famolare, co-directors of *The Bridgewater Triangle*, will screen their film at the Norfolk Public Library on Wednesday, Oct. 22 nd at 7:00 p.m. The 90-minute documentary will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the co-directors, and is free and open to the public.
    The Bridgewater Triangle documentary was a movie decades in the making. Each of the film's co-directors grew up near one of the triangle's most infamous locations. As a resident of East Bridgewater, Famolare had heard bizarre stories of cryptic animal sightings in the nearby Hockomock Swamp. Meanwhile, as a resident of North Dartmouth, Cadieux was well aware of the neighboring Freetown-Fall River State Forest's sinister reputation. Famolare and Cadieux each came to know the concept of the Bridgewater Triangle through reading publications from leading researchers.
    The Bridgewater Triangle sits within the Southeastern portion of Massachusetts, and includes a number of locations known for unexplained occurrences, the most prominent of which include the legendary Hockomock Swamp and the infamous Freetown/Fall River State Forest. The Triangle's traditional borders are revealed by connecting the dots between the town of Abington to the north, the town of Freetown to the southeast, and the town of Rehoboth to the southwest. The region hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange occurrences, unexplained mysteries and sinister activities. From ghostly hauntings and cryptic animal sightings, to UFO encounters and evidence of satanic ritual sacrifice, the Bridgewater Triangle serves as one of the world's most diverse hotspots for paranormal activity.
    In 2010, after years of researching many odd occurrences in the Bridgewater Triangle, Famolare, a passionate photographer and videographer, decided to begin the process of making his own documentary on the subject. Through the internet, Famolare and Cadieux stumbled across each other's plans, and eventually agreed to join forces and produce a single comprehensive piece. By 2011, production on *The Bridgewater Triangle *was well underway. After almost three years of filming, scriptwriting and researching, the documentary debuted on October 20, 2013 to a sell-out crowd of more than 750 people at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. It presents the reports of strange occurrences and unexplained mysteries from the region in a way which allows viewers to make their own determinations regarding the legitimacy of the Bridgewater Triangle's existence.
    The film features a number of local residents providing first-hand, eyewitness accounts of unexplained occurrences in the region. In addition, paranormal researchers, folklorists and authors provide expert analysis regarding the many mysteries of the Triangle. Loren Coleman, the author and world-renowned cryptozoologist dubbed the 200-square-mile region in southeastern Massachusetts, "The Bridgewater Triangle" in his 1983 work, Mysterious America.
    Since its debut a year ago, *The Bridgewater Triangle* has been screened at Bridgewater State University as well as several area libraries, and has an upcoming screening at Cinema Salem. Famolare and Cadieux have been interviewed on WCVB's Chronicle as well as WJAR in Providence. *The Bridgewater Triangle* will air on the cable channel, Destination America in November.

  • 10/19 11:46pm   Tickets Now On Sale for Un-Common's Fall Production of "Seussical"
    Tickets are now available for The Un-Common Theatre Company's Fall Production of "Seussical" being presented at the Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro on November 21-23, 2014! Tickets may be purchased by calling (800) 838-3006 or online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/878351. Join us as we bring together kids ages 7 through 17 together on stage for a truly family-oriented theatrical experience for all ages. "Seussical" brings to life many of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters.
    Narrated by the Cat in the Hat (Izzy Johnson, Canton, MA), the story tells the tale of Horton (Joe Spirito, North Smithfield, RI), an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo (Jackson Flaherty, Mansfield, MA), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge - not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Olivia Fonseca, Taunton, MA). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Camryn MacIver, North Attleboro, MA) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship,loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
    The talented cast of 45 is guided by Director and Choreographer Michael Hammond (Holbrook, MA), Music Director Paula Bishop (Foxboro, MA) and Assistant Choreographer Cailin Dyke (Mansfield, MA).

Games are played on Fridays, with kick-offs from 4-7 PM. SC Norfolk's Macro league teams are for 2nd grade girls to serve as a step towards the 6v6 format and to develop the abilities of our younger soccer players. A goalie position is introduced but still limits the number of field players to four to maximize each player's touches on the ball. Play will be on a special taraflex surfaced court with a special ball designed for this format.
    Uniform purchase not required, as we will use numbered pinnies, so only a tee shirt is required.

  • 10/5 1:22pm   Hello NorfolkNet! As a new resident to this lovely town, I would like to take a moment of your time and introduce myself and my business. My name is Stephanie, and I am the owner of Off the Wall Creative Design. I specialize in large scale paintings, custom murals and faux finshes for your home or office. I transform ordinary spaces into something totally unique.
    Maybe the basement calls for that ``man-cave'' you've always wanted. Or maybe your son or daughter would feel more at home in a room specially designed for them, their favorite sport team or princess on the wall. Perhaps you are expecting, or recent parents, who could use a cute theme in the nursery... all of these things we can help you achieve!
    If you are interested in discussing a potential project, or would like to talk more about what it is that I do, I would be happy to meet with you. Also, you can visit my website (listed below) to see my portfolio, and get a better idea of the breadth of work I am capable of doing.
    Thanks again!

  • 10/3 2:37pm   DP - I was wondering the same thing. I heard them in the middle of the night and was surprised at the frequency; I swear there was one going by every 5 minutes, and I live very close the street. In terms of speeding, I am not surprised at all.
    Along the same subject, a week ago Sunday I took my two daughters to the new playground and during the trip I had three separate vehicles blow by me while in the cross-walk with a double stroller! One was a kid in a jeep (at the playground heading in to town), the second was at the same location and was an elderly woman. She didn't even see me which is scary. At least the kid in the Jeep made eye-contact. The last was in front of the gas station; I was literally half-way across when an older guy and his wife went flying out of the rotary Down Main Street on a Harley. Frankly I am perplexed that the police aren't permanently situated somewhere near the new playground. I am afraid it is only a matter of time before something happens. I think the town should have put a blinking yellow light at that intersection when they built the playground.

  • 9/25 10:56pm   KMK cleaners, seriously? I have been in your "shop" 4 times in the last 5 weeks only to be disappointed by your poor performance. First time, I received no call back from the "manager" about how long an alteration would take. Ok, bad business, but no big deal. 2nd time, my shirts which were supposed to be done in 24 hours took 3 days, annoying but ok, whatever. Third time, I ask for an alteration and a clean. I get an alteration only, no clean. Getting kinda annoyed.
    Ahh and the final straw. I come to pick up my pants tonight, and they can't be located.
    Just a thought, but you guys might want to think about having someone working in the "shop" whose age doesn't end in "teen".

  • 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.

    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!
