  • 1/28 12:03am   The Norfolk Community Preservation Committee is hosting a public hearing on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 7:30 PM at Town Hall in order to receive public input on Norfolk's draft updated Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP). The plan includes among its primary elements a statement of goals and objectives, an environmental inventory and analysis, an inventory of existing and potential conservation and recreation lands and an action plan to implement the goals and objectives.
    Completing an OSRP that gains approval from the Massachusetts Division of Conservation Services (DCS) provides two primary benefits:
    (1) It provides a document to guide future Town decisions pertaining to open space and recreation, and
    (2) It makes the Town eligible for grants that can be used to purchase open space and develop recreation facilities.
    The last DCS-approved OSRP for Norfolk was prepared in 1996. That plan resulted in a state grant that helped purchase the Lind Farm Conservation Land.
    Public participation is a key component of preparing a plan. Town boards and committees will also have an opportunity for input, but the forum is an opportunity for all residents to comment on any aspect of the draft plan as well as to present their ideas about future efforts to meet open space and recreation needs in Norfolk.

  • 1/27 11:18pm   I have some questions about the proposed debt exclusion of a new public safety building. After reading the vote announcement I am concerned about the substantial tax increase we will all face.
    How many debt exclusions are we currently paying for?
    When do the current debt exclusions end?
    How are we going to pay for maintenance on a new building?
    Obviously there was not much effort put into maintaining the current facility. I am sure there are plenty of homes in the town that were built on or before 1966 that are in perfectly good condition.

Also the State D.E.P. ran out of fact packets for Kingsbury Pond (Miller St) area residents as they find out again that Franklin is knowingly, documented as drawing down pond level to lethan lows with operation of well #4 Miller St. Residents have been ignored and snubbed in the name of cheap drinking water there and battling quietly since 1964.

  • 1/20 6:01pm   Dear owner, your remote controller is not safe. I am mad at you and have been so since the yard became cold for a consitant and protracted time: roughly since Christmas. I also am suspecting that you are actively ignoring my irritated mood with a new tactic of: looking mostly at your screens, both lap held and the big one on the wall.
    My recent campaign of waiting till u leave the room and then shi**ing in the corner because that infuriates you and I laugh inside because you get so animated and it reminds me of fetch and chasing tails, has failed to produce an admission by you that I am unhappy.
    Consider today's mauling of your magical "screen-turning-on" device as a WARNING bcause I have tasted it and carried it around and I'm now pretty confident I could eat its brain out if I don't get scared when the batteries roll out like last time.
    If you want to make me happy: turn up the thermostat on the outside yard, because it looks warm enough from inside, but you trick me every day and boot me out when I hesitate at the chilly doorway.
    - Your former friend Sparky.

  • 1/20 5:43pm   Performance at Onset School of Music Wakefield, MA After School Guitar lessons
    I am a senior at King Philip High School and self-taught guitar player. Once I had taught myself guitar for a year to learn the basics I took lessons in order to take my playing to the next level. I know how costly guitar lessons can be, especially when you just want to start playing. I am now giving lessons to those who show an interest in learning how to play guitar. It is a great way to start learning guitar in the comfort of your own home. I suggest owning your own guitar but if needed I can provide a quality guitar to get started.

  • 1/5/2015 9:20pm   The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for the East Coast Premiere of "School of Rock" on Sunday, January 10th, 2016, from 11:00am to 2:00pm. The production will feature a cast of 6th through 12th graders and will be performed April 8-10, 2016. This production will be lead by the creative team of Director Maggie Dowd (Brighton, MA) and Music Director Danielle Clougher (Canton, MA).
    "School of Rock" is a brand new, high-energy musical with an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Based on the famous Paramount film written by Mike White, which starred Jack Black, the musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. With 14 new songs "School of Rock" also includes all of the original songs from the movie. This production features a sensational on-stage kids' rock band and is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the spirit of rock be with you!
    Schedule your audition today and be a part of bringing this brand new musical to the East Coast Community Theatre stage for the very first time!
    Auditions will be held at the Orpheum Theater in Foxboro, MA for students in Grades 6 through 12 on Sunday, January 10, from 11:00am to 2:00pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Callbacks will be held at 3:00pm. All roles are available. To make an appointment, email uncommontheatre@verizon.net. Please provide your name, grade, age, e-mail address and telephone number.

  • 1/5/2015 9:00pm   Please excuse me, but I have to vent for a minute here. My daughter is a middle school student at KPMS. She is very responsible and studious, and her grades definitely reflect her efforts. I am SO proud of her! I have a huge problem though. She is so inundated with homework and studying, that she chooses NOT take extra dance classes, or, as of today, attend a much looked forward to dance Christmas party, because she is so concerned with meeting her school responsibilities. The amount of homework she has is disgusting, not only tonight, but most other nights as well. It is nearly impossible for her to have a friend come over after school too. She rarely says a word about her school obligations, and goes straight to her homework as soon as she comes home...for HOURS. She has NO TIME to do anything else. She has cut back the number of days she takes dance classes (her favorite thing), because of the amount of homework she gets. Not only does homework upset the quality of our home/family time, but it is also upsetting the extracurricular activities that she should be a part of. Why on Earth is anyone wondering why we have issues with childhood obesity, anxiety, and depression?? Thankfully, my daughter does not suffer from these things (thus far), but it is so clear to me why so many children do. I am angry, it's true. I do not mean to judge every KPMS teacher at all, because (I hope!) many of them are very good at recognizing that KIDS SHOULD BE KIDS. But, as a whole, shame on you KPMS school system. Shame on you. How many of you start your day at 7:30 am and finish it at 9:00ish, if you're lucky? Not many, I'm sure. Check with the children. I'm sure most of them do! Signed, Aggravated Mom.

  • 12/20 12:59pm   To K.M. I agree the January voting makes no sense. That's true what if there is a snowstorm and the wonderful workers that work the voting stations can't even get there. Then what? Why can't the town save some money and hold 2 elections on the same day in march. Makes sense to me.

  • 12/20 12:57pm   I am posting in hopes of dispelling some of the misconceptions surrounding the timing of the Special Town Election for the funding of the Public Safety Project.
    The Town Clerk is responsible for running all elections, and in that position please let me share with you the timetable that Massachusetts General Law requires us to follow regarding Special Elections.
    The Fall Town Meeting is traditionally held in November and was scheduled for November 17th. The meeting was moved back to December 1 due to a posting conflict with Veterans Day. Once the voters at Town Meeting approved the public safety project, the Selectmen and the Town Clerk must follow a specific process. The Town Clerk must receive written notice of the referendum from the Selectmen at least 35 days before the date of the election. (MGL C54 S42C) The Special Election is required to be held within 90 days after the close of Town Meeting (MGL C59 S21c.m). The selectmen met on December 8th and established the date of January 19th for the Special Election. The March 1st Primary date falls outside the 90 day window that is allowed by law.
    While it would have been good on a cost saving basis to have run the two elections on the same day, some significant costs, such as creating the ballots and programming the machines, would be the same whether on primary day or a different day.
    Some people have mentioned a concern over voter turnout. In looking back over more than a few of the past State and Federal Primary Elections, they are traditionally some of the smallest turnout elections that we hold.
    I know many of you have voiced concerns about the weather, and living in New England the weather is unpredictable from December through March. The reality is, we could have a bad day in January or March, hopefully both days will be clear.
    The Selectmen have informed my office that they will be holding an open meeting in the library on January 7th to discuss the financials of this project and I encourage all interested parties to attend. Additionally an informational package will be mailed to every household. I hope this helps to address some of your concerns, and please feel free to contact my office, or the Selectmen's Office, if you have an specific questions or concerns.

  • 12/7 12:41am   SPECIAL VOTE TO APPROVE $12.2 MILLION DOLLAR PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT: At last evening's town meeting a member of the board was quoted as saying 'unfortunately this vote would probably occur during a snowstorm'. One member of the audience raised a point - could this vote coincide with the election planned for March, in order to increase voter turnout (assuming the weather would be better in March, let's hope!). The response by the board member was that interest rates may be going up, and the loan would be more costly as a result. Questioned further, the board member could not produce evidence that interest rates would be going up, could not quantify the effect of any such increase, and said the board would "discuss" deferring until March. Apparently all discussions are already complete as the Town Moderator has indicated here that the vote will be no later than early February. Absent any info to the contrary, a January/February vote sounds to me like the board is hoping for a snowstorm and, in turn, lower voter turnout. I respect and appreciate the guidance of those we have entrusted to manage our town, as well as the hard work and dedication of our police and fire departments. Having said that, I hope we can appeal to those in charge to defer the vote until such a time as turnout will not be hampered by inclement weather. No matter your view on this issue, we as a community should want the highest voter turnout and broadest participation in our government as possible.

  • 12/7 12:32am   Un-Common's Fall Production of "Shrek The Musical" Opens December 4th
    Don't miss The Un-Common Theatre Company's Fall Production of "Shrek The Musical" being presented at the Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro on Friday, December 4th at 7:30pm, Saturday, December 5th at 3:00pm and 7:30pm and Sunday, December 6th at 2:00pm. Pre-Sale Tickets are $22 for Adults and $17 for Students, Seniors and all Balcony Tickets and may be purchased by calling (800) 838-3006 or on line at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2419976. Tickets purchased at the door are $25 for Adults and $20 for Students, Seniors and all Balcony Tickets. For Un-Common Members, groups of 10 or larger, or handicapped seating please email uncommontheatre@verizon.net. Join us as we bring kids ages 7 through 17 together on stage for a truly family-oriented theatrical experience for all ages. Shrek The Musical brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.
    "Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek (Ben Reingold, Sharon, MA)..." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey (Ashley Tsimtsos, Mansfield, MA) and a feisty princess Fiona (Cara DiPietro, Norfolk, MA) who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy (Matthew Corbett, Attleboro, MA), a cookie with an attitude (Brooke Leifer, Mansfield, MA), and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.
