  • 7/27 11:33pm   Norfolk is a wonderful town full of friendly neighbors and quite streets making it a perfect place to go for a run or enjoy a bike ride. Usually there is hardly any traffic and most cars when they pass a runner or biker provide ample room. However lately I have had more than 1 close call where I have been pushed off the road because a driver does not want to share the road. If you are driving please move over, way over for others on the road. There is no law that says you cannot cross the yellow line provided you do it safely. You may think giving a runner 18 inches of room is plenty but if you are running and 3 ton SUV wizzes by at 40MPH less than an elbow's length away it makes your life flash before your eyes. If the situation comes up where there is oncoming traffic just slow down let that traffic pass then give pedestrian a little extra room. You can speed back up after you pass and trust me you won't be late for your appointment that is almost certainly not important enough to force me into the patch of poison ivy on the shoulder of the road. Thanks Norfolk.

    A misfit at school, Carrie White (Katie Fidler, Coventry, RI) is bullied by popular kids Chris (Olivia Losiewicz, Mansfield, MA) and Billy (Joe Spirito, North Smithfield, RI) and invisible to everyone else. Her only allies are Miss Gardner (Alexa Lieberthal, Wrentham, MA), Sue (Katie Armstrong, Mansfield, MA) and Tommy (Charlie Lowiewicz, Mansfield, MA). Terrorized by her holier-than-thou mother (Madeline Canfield, Foxboro, MA) at home, Carrie discovers she possesses a powerful secret. When a prank at the high school prom goes horribly wrong, they all find out just how scary a secret can be...
    Based on the acclaimed horror novel by Stephen King, and featuring a book by Lawrence D.Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose), Carrie the musical has been completely reworked since its legendary 1988 Broadway production to create a fully re-imagined adaptation of this gripping tale of torment and revenge.
    "CARRIE the musical" continues Un-Common's Young Adult Company's mission to present unique opportunities for cast and audiences alike to experience provocative, cutting-edge theatre in our community. Past shows have included the Moss Hart Award winning "Rent - School Edition", the national non-equity premieres of "American Idiot" and "Spring Awakening" as well as edgy dramas such as "Assassins", "Tommy", "Bat Boy" and "Anyone Can Whistle".
    Un-Common's production brings together the talents of Un-Common veteran Director Christa Crewdson (Arlington, MA) and Music Director Linda Barbieri (Attleboro, MA). The cast of twenty-one includes: From Franklin, MA: Casey Capobianco (Chris' Posse), Ian Simpson (Freddy/Sue's Interrogator) From Foxboro, MA: Madeline Canfield (Margaret White) From Holliston, MA: Mai Hartwich (Norma) From Mansfield, MA: Sara Alfaro (Ensemble), Katie Armstrong (Sue Snell), Maria Capece (Sue's Interrogator/ Ensemble), Patrick Driscoll (George), Charlie Losiewicz (Tommy Ross), Olivia Losiewicz (Chris Hargensen), Derek Lynch (Reverend Bliss/Ensemble), Catherine Sapovits (Ensemble) From Milton, MA: Jenna Corcoran (Frieda) From Norton, MA: Amanda Flicop (Mrs. Stephens), Abby Sitte (Helen) From Taunton, MA: Olivia Fonseca (Chris' Posse) From Weymouth, MA: Nate Pacheco (Stokes) From Wrentham, MA: Alexa Lieberthal (Miss Gardner), Maddy Teixeira (Ensemble) From Coventry, RI: Katie Fidler (Carrie White) From North Smithfield, RI: Joe Spirito (Billy Nolan)
    Because of the mature subject matter, this show is recommended for ages 15 and above.
    The Un-Common Theatre Co. is currently in its 35th season of providing a creative place for children, adolescents and adults to develop life skills through exposure to the professional theatrical experience. For more information about the Un-Common Theatre Co. and "CARRIE the musical" please visit their website at www.uncommontheatre.org.

  • 7/12 2:20pm   Norfolk preschool has limited openings, offers extended hours, flexible days for ages 2.5 to 4
    Norfolk -- My Little Preschool, an in-home, state certified preschool located in a quiet Norfolk cul-de-sac, invites parents to register their children ages 2.5-4 years old for the upcoming school year. This quality program provides an age-appropriate learning environment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9AM to 1PM. Parents have the option of choosing how often and which days they would like their child to attend. Space is limited.
    On a typical day, children may engage in open-ended play using a diverse set of materials, including paints, sand and water table, writing and coloring supplies, and imaginative play toys. Children enjoy story time together, and may also explore books throughout the day from the collection in the reading corner. The daily activities may include: art, cooking, science, songs, stories, and music. Weather permitting, the children play outside every day in the fenced-in play yard for fresh air and to exercise their gross motor skills.
    My Little Preschool practices a solely positive approach to children, encouraging them to learn to socialize through play. In addition to a morning snack,
    My Little Preschool offers children a nutritious lunch. The school follows a peanut/nut free diet. Parents may provide food for children with very specific dietary needs.
    My Little Preschool welcomes children who are not yet toilet trained.
    Director Laurie Hayes, also known as ``Ms. Laurie,'' worked in all facets of childcare before founding My Little Preschool in 2008. She is pleased to offer the community a small class size and low teacher-to-student ratio in a play-rich environment that's ideally suited to a child's first school experience.
    For more information or to schedule a visit, call (508) 528-7373 or email littlepreschool@aol.com. You can also visit My Little Preschool on facebook at www.facebook.com/mylittlepreschoolnorfolk.

Tickets may be purchased by calling (800) 838-3006 or online at www.unco-carrie.brownpapertickets.com.

  • 7/6 9:24pm   BF(2) just a quick note on your experience: At the time you complained, I would have offered you some credit for the work already done, and a price to replace the micro-perforated sheet metal on your truck bed. Micro-perforation is not always easily detected. It's inadvisable to patch it, since it would only break out next to the patch. It's quite expensive to replace a whole bed side, and it would have been understandable if you declined (I don't remember) based on the value of the truck, and/or your finances. There really is no other option. I'm truly sorry you had a bad experience, and I invite you to call me and discuss this with me further.

  • 6/28 11:17am   I guess if reviews are going out for business' in our area then, in fairness, the not so good experiences have to be mentioned too. Some years back, I hired Rocky's to handle some body work on my Ford pick-up truck which involved some rear quarter rot repair as well as the replacement of the rear chrome bumper. In less than one year, the bumper developed dozens of pin-hole rust spots and the body work, which involve the use of filler began to bump out and crack. It was breaking away from the original metal of the truck. I brought the truck back to them and asked about these problems. I was pleased when they said they would replace the bumper (more loss of use of the truck though) but, the lifting body work... I was told that this is what happens when filler is put upon a rotted body and that if they took an ice pick, it would go all the way through! They would not fix the rot I paid to have fixed, they just covered over it. I thought to myself... that would be like me putting roof shingles over rotted plywood. It just would not hold up. In the end, I did get a new bumper but was forced to live with the degrading body work I paid for... I was over-all unhappy and do not recommend them.

  • 6/25 8:13pm   On Monday, June 1, Norfolk Grange at 28 Rockwood Road, began the process of being power washed, scraped, primed and painted after several years of a structural and interior restoration process. At long last, we were able to secure a volunteer paint team and saw exterior restoration become a reality. Norfolk Grange #135, the Historical Commission, the Community Preservation Commission and the community at large are now able to look at this historic building (built in 1863) with pride.
    We would like to thank all of the volunteers involved and would also like to recognize the following vendors both in Norfolk as well as surrounding towns: John Primpas, owner of Dunkin' Donuts, Norfolk: for lots and lots of boxes of ``joe'' and donuts, daily; Camger Coatings, Norfolk, for their many donated gallons of primer; Sherwin-Williams of Franklin, also for many donated gallons of paint; Tom Terpstra of Terpstra Painting, Norfolk, for his hours of consultation; Aqua ~Barriers, Norfolk, for donating the use of their aerial lift without which we could never have reached the really high places much less the steeple. Norfolk Pizza, Papa Gino's (Medfield), Shaws (Medfield), Roche Bros.(Millis), Burger King (Medway) and Whole Foods (Bellingham) also donated huge, delicious lunches and drinks for our hungry, thirsty workers whose boots were on the ground every day--and on staging, ladders and lifts--to work diligently amid sunshine and showers. We urge the public to patronize these vendors and thank them when you can, for helping our historic restoration program which concluded on Thursday, June 11.
    Thank you, all, and enjoy our building at 28 Rockwood Road, home of Norfolk Grange #135.

  • 6/25 7:56pm   CS: It is you who have a [...] problem or you cannot read. Normally, I ignore you but I must answer your comment about me. I did not say anything remotely like what you allege, and wouldn't, and you know it. You raise the question of his/her [medical] condition. Why? Are you going to reach out to him/her? What is behind this preposterous, baseless interpretation? I am astonished your comment was not censored.
