12/9 1:03am I'm wondering if any folks have switched their electric
supplier. I have heard from 2 different companies but am reluctant to

Why do assert that "I doubt many teens read the NN (nor should they)"?
It seems to me that many Norfolk teens follow NorfolkNet, to the
benefit of all of us. These local teens offer to babysit, do yard work,
and provide many other services. Sometimes it is for high school
spending money, and other times it is for college. Either way, the teen
and the ``employer'' both generally benefit. One of the other
positive outcomes of Norfolk Net is the facilitation of these types of
opportunities for community interaction. How better to get to know your
neighbors then to do chores for them at a reasonable rate? I'd like
to think our kids can handle the G/PG content hosted here.
Local Norfolk citizens and Tritown neighbors, the King Philip Music
Association still has about 25 fresh Christmas wreaths for sale. Only $14.00
each with a red bow. Why buy at a commercial store when you can help out a
worthy cause?? Please won't you support our local music students and staff
who give back to our communities at various concerts on common, Frosty
Parade, Pan Mass Challenge, etc... If you are interested you can contact me

Many kudos and heartfelt thanks belong to the young person or persons
who dropped a dime on the ( alleged) perpetrator of animal cruelty on
Grove St. Obviously, in addition to being more than despicable this
miscreant was a poor judge of character. It's a good thing a video
was made, because we might never have known what was going on. What an
embarrassment for the town had these teens not come forward to seek
justice for that dog. I hope the defendants don't land in front of
some silly judge who lets them off because they're "just
juveniles". I hope they are punished to the full extent of the law.
Fortunately the animal cruelty laws were stiffened after that poor dog,
who had to be euthanized, was found in Quincy. Richard Ross was
involved in that legislation. I doubt many teens read the NN ( nor
should they) so if any of you happen to know the brave young defenders
of that dog, please thank them for me. The town should honor them in
some special way.
It's that time of year again!! Dog tags in the town of Norfolk all expire
December 31st so if you want to get ahead of the process, dog registration
is beginning on December 15th. You can register by mail, in person, or on
the Town Clerk's website. If you renew by mail, please include a self
addressed, stamped, return envelope.
Registration forms will also be included with your census for your
The cost is $10.00 per dog if they are spayed/neutered, $15.00 each if
they are not. Please make checks payable to Town of Norfolk and send them
to the Town Clerk's office - 1 Liberty Lane.
New this year - the town voted to accept a Mass General Law that
waives the dog registration fee for our residents 70 years of age and
over, so if you are in that age group, we are going to need proof of age
at the time of registration.

Hello, fellow Norfolkians. I was expecting a package last Friday and
according to FedEx it was delivered to my front door (except it wasn't).
The sender shipped with no-signature required. Anyway, it was a nice 35
day chiming wall clock valued at around $70. I don't suspect someone
took it from my front porch because my Wife and I were home all day and
the dog never barked. Anyway, I figure it was delivered to the wrong
address. If you happen to know someone that received a nice clock that
they didn't order (or pay for ;)), I would appreciate the courtesy of
them contacting FedEx or me. I am sure it's a simple mistake. I know
it's not as easy leaving out a wrongly delivered parcel from the USPS,
but it would be much appreciated.
We live on North Street. I did open a claim with FedEx, but who knows how that will turn out.

host of groups will turn out to celebrate his arrival with a variety
Santa and his entourage will be ushered into town by the highly
acclaimed King Philip High School Marching Band under the direction
of Mr. Joshua Wolloff. The band recently achieved status as the
National Champions in the US National Bands Division 3 competition,
so come on out to congratulate them on their achievements while
getting in the holiday spirit!
Prior to the parade, Santa stops in at Hillcrest Village to hand
out cookies and treats and receive hugs and kisses from the residents.
Shhhhh don't tell Mrs. Claus!
Santa's parade will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Hillcrest Village on
Rockwood Road. Santa's elves, Frosty the Snowman, the Grinch,
Norfolk Police and Fire Departments, area Scouts, and others will
join Santa along Route 115, through the center of town, turning
right onto Liberty Lane and ending at the Norfolk library.
At 4:00 p.m. residents are invited to visit with Santa in the Meeting
Room of the library and have their pictures taken. Santa's elves
will be bustling around the room assisting all. This year, Santa
is going digital and you can download your photos after the parade.
Refreshments will be provided by the Norfolk Recreation Department.
Children are invited to bring their homemade ornaments to help the
adults decorate the town Christmas tree, which will be lit for the
first time to mark the beginning of the season.
The Santa Parade and festivities are sponsored by the Norfolk Lions
Club and the Norfolk Recreation Department, with the cooperation

Has anyone noticed a new noise in the town? Tonight a smaller plow was doing our road. It
had a extremely loud beeper. This is the first year they have had them. He
spent 20 minutes creating a lot of noise at 9pm. No one is around. No one is on
the road. No one goes near a working
plow in the middle of the night.
There are broad band
devices which use white noise instead and maintain a local warning field
instead of waking everyone up in a 2 block radius.

white noise beepers to be installed.

Two male guinea pigs with cage are looking for a forever home. We are
fostering two 1 year old guinea pigs for a friend and are looking for a
forever home for these sweet boys, Smudge and Caramel. We are asking a
small rehoming fee of $50 as we do not want them to become snake food, and
are looking for a good home where they will get lots of love. Guinea pigs
require a decent amount of space to run, and so we are including their cage
setup. The setup will include the cage, the pan, water bottle, hay rack,
and hidey houses. The cage, as is, will require a minimum of 28"x 56" of
floor or table space, but if needed, the cage can be reduced to 28" x 42".
To see what kind of cage they have you can google

way, if you have never had a guinea pig,
is an excellent
resource to learn about proper guinea pig care. Please contact me with

Thanksgiving, on November 28, and continue until all trees are gone. We
hope to see you down at the lot early for best selection.
As has been its tradition in the past six years, the Norfolk Lions Christmas
Tree Sale is located on the lot next to the Dunkin Donuts on Main Street in
downtown Norfolk. We thank the owners of our local Dunkin Donuts for their
continued support of the Norfolk Lions.
Selling hours are weekdays from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM and weekends from 9:00 AM
to 9:00 PM. The Lions will be happy to trim the bottom of your tree, wrap
it and secure it to your car, although pickup trucks are very much
appreciated. We accept cash and checks to the Norfolk Lions Club; sorry no
Did you know that it takes 10 to 12 years of growing time and professional
care to bring a Christmas tree to harvest? Our trees come from northern
Maine and they are fresh and beautiful! We have both Balsam and Frazier Fir
trees, as well as wreaths. We also have tree bags and tree life
preservative to promote needle retention and help keep your tree fresh.
All of the proceeds from the sales of the trees go right back into the local
Norfolk community and to various Lions charities. "Monies that the Lions
generate go to seed such research as blindness prevention, diabetes
prevention and numerous other causes", says Ed Melanson, this year's
President and King Lion. "Norfolk Lions has donated over $250,000 in it's
over 50 years of service to the community".
This year we will have a collection bin at the tree lot for Coats 4 Kids.
We will be collecting coats for men, women and children to be given to
families in need in our community. Any and all coats in good condition are
needed and all will be dry-cleaned courtesy of Anton's Cleaners.
We will also be collecting non-perishable food donations for the benefit of
the Norfolk Food Pantry. Like many of us, the food pantry has been hit hard
during these economic times and we would like to help out. Bill Hawkins,
co-chairman of the Christmas Tree Sale, further comments, "Your
contributions to the Norfolk Food Pantry would be appreciated and could not
come at a better time of year."
Again this year, the Boy Scouts of Norfolk will be offering a tree pick up
service after the holidays. For $10, the Scouts will pick up a tree at any
house in Norfolk and bring it to the transfer station for recycling. You
can register for this service at the lot when you buy your tree.
The Norfolk Lions Club currently has 82 men and women members and is
growing! We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the
Novatos Bar and Grill at 218 Dedham St (Rt. 1A) in Norfolk, MA. For more
information or to get involved with the Norfolk Lions Club, please visit
or send email to norfolk

Lions member you may know.

KP - ask DESE, MCAS is only mandatory to graduate not to take every
year. And just like the SATs there is no studying for it just
practice and if the teachers have done a decent job at teaching
reading, writing, math and science then any student should be able
to walk in and take the test and pass. It is not authentic and
again, just like the SATs, (which is why many of the top colleges
don't put much credit to them) any student who can sit for three
hours straight with a decent enough education should be able to
pass without 7 years of taking it! And students can take it several
times in high school as needed. I've also been told even students
on IEPs rarely fail after the second or third try. It's not authentic,
it's not cumulative and the stress and anxiety of these poor kids
is palpable in the schools during MCAS time. Btw, I don't work in
Norfolk and telling the teachers and the Superintendent about your
dismay is preaching to the choir. It starts at the top.

Looking to get my hardwood floors sanded and refinished. Any suggestions? Thanks
AMG; I had two different companies tell me not to install a humidifier

We are looking to re-home our two beautiful Goldendoodles. These two dogs
are litter-mates, (brother and sister) and were born in August, 2013. They
are lively, loving, and full of energy. We are asking that these siblings
be taken AS A PAIR. We are not willing to separate them, as they are very
bonded to each other. They have been raised in a family with 2 young
children (4 and 6), as well as guinea pigs. These two dogs require
attention, love, and exercise. A fully fenced (conventional or electric) is
highly recommended, as they love to explore. Both dogs have been fully
vetted, and are spayed, neutered, and microchipped. Please contact me with

I want to thank all the first-time Republicans for making a valiant

11/02 7:20pm Hello. I sure would appreciate the thoughts of you
construction experts out there. I want to install 2 new storm doors on a
modular home I own in Barrington, New Hampshire. The house is in excellent
condition as are the door frames. I have been researching Home Depot and
Lowe's products, went out to view them, but when I read about them online, I
can't get a good sense of which to buy. There are a lot of negative posts
out there regarding Anderson storm doors (even the 400 series that I am
considering) and the "Tradewinds" name by Larson. I am trying to find 1 full
view and 1 highview with built in screen and I don't want to have to replace
them in 2 or 3 years. My budget is mid $200's per door plus installation.
Can you experts share your opinions, please? Your thoughts would be very

Thanks so much.
You requested feedback from construction experts so I thought I would reply
to your post regarding storm doors (Complete Builders, LLC of Norfolk: Your
Professional MA Residential Builders & Design Specialists
I am not familiar with the Tradewinds/Larson brand you mentioned so I will
direct the info to the Anderson/EMCO series that HD offers.
Probably the number one feature to look for as you are making
choices/comparisons is whether or not the storm door has a wood core. This
is common in the EMCO series found at Home Depot (which is actually an
Anderson brand). The downside to the wood core is that if moisture
penetrates that wood core it will affect the lifespan of the door (thus
counterproductive to your comment that you want it to last longer than a few
Although these doors are within the price range you mentioned it is best to
find out if the 400 series that you are considering has that wood core; you
may be spending it all again within a few short years. The Anderson 2000
series and 2500 series offer full view and also a foldaway screen option for
about $250. Home Depot charges $127 for install. This includes the $30 to
come out and measure and see if your door opening needs any other work done
to accommodate the storm door; such as a repairs to existing door jam or a
"build out". Those types of things would add cost to the install but are
evaluated and priced out beforehand. If you should decide after the
measuring that it just doesn't work for you, my understanding is that HD
will only charge the $30 for the time their installer spent coming out to
measure and evaluate. Not sure if you are an avid DIY'er but storm doors
tend to be a very challenging install; "some assembly required" is an
understatement and the $127 install fee is worth every penny. I hope you
find this info helpful in making your storm door selection for your NH home.

AMG... Both Andersen and Larson are good choices. When a vendor sells
lots and lots of storm doors, they will generate some negative press as
there will always be those who can never be happy. Try to look at the
positive press too. Choices are somewhat limited and I have installed a
lot of both doors over the years. Andersen will immediately back up
their door if there is a problem plus they have a great installation
guidance phone line as well. Hope this helps.

I would be careful with your words. MCAS is a mandatory exam for all
students. PARCC is not, yet. I surely hope that your child's Principal,
and probably my child's too, didn't tell you that you can opt out of
That said, you are 100% right that they teach to the exam. It
is totally wrong that the standard daily learning activities are altered
for this prior to the exam period. I bet the Principal didn't admit to
that though. All it does is get the kids worked up about a test that
they should be able to pass regardless. Parent/teacher conferences are
this week in Norfolk. Every parent should tell their child's teacher
that they oppose the 'cram session' before the upcoming exams. If enough
parents voice a concern it might make the Superintendent realize that
something is wrong; or at least make her comment on it.
