  • 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.

  • 6/15 11:15pm   I drove around the Route 115 roundabout by the Town Common and library at 11:38 A.M. on Sunday, 6/14. It was very hot with full sun. Can someone tell me why the Common was being irrigated with sprinklers at high noon, when it's against the DPW rules to water except by hand, and at a time of day when they're losing 40% of it through evaporation? Don't your timers work for 4 A.M.?

  • 6/15 11:13pm   Family in Norfolk looking to secure a part time/permanent caretaker to help out with our family. We have some needs during the summer but more as the new school year begins in the fall. Specifically, we would be interested in someone who has a car and can watch our 2nd grader in the early mornings everyday (7-8:30) until he gets on the bus, after school 3 days a week from (3:30-5;30/6). We also would prefer someone who has some flexibility to care for him during no school days and that can pitch in and help take him to sporting events from time to time. Finally, it would be helpful if you have had some experience with toddlers as we have twin boys (2.5 year olds) that we may need some back-up care on rare occasions.
    If you are interested and live in town or nearby Norfolk please call me at 617-913-9233

  • 6/15 11:06pm   I would like to thank the members of the Grange for doing a fabulous job of painting the Grange Hall and restoring this beautiful building. Now we can all be proud of this treasure to our town. It has been a long effort getting the structure ready for paint. BRAVO for all your work and perseverance.
    They had lots of help but several of the members themselves were out there priming and painting along with many many volunteers. Many businesses donated materials and professional painters donated materials, their skill and managerial skills to get the job done. I am not the person to thank them by name as I'm just a bystander. I do know the businesses who donated food to feed the volunteers during the week and a half it took to get the job done. So I'm asking you to go into these places buy food and thank them for supporting our community and our historic and now beautiful Grange Hall.

We were very happy with both pricing and quality of his body work on one of our cars, and he went above and beyond to help out when we jammed the hood when replacing the latch on another occasion. Only thing is that he's always busy, but with good reason. Tell him you were sent by the Norfolk guy whose BMW hood was jammed shut - he'll remember that one!

  • 6/15 5:58pm   I strongly recommend Ivy Music Academy for any parent considering private music lessons for their child. My son has been attending Ivy for the past two years for guitar lessons. At 12 years old, he is quickly falling in love with guitar and has greatly enjoyed his lessons. We are moving out of state and I can only hope to find an instructor half as good as his current instructor at Ivy. He has an excellent foundation for what will hopefully be a lifetime of music.

  • 6/2 5:56pm   I am a Norfolk resident and have paid taxes in this town for 20 years. I was completely shocked how KP High School handled the 2015 Graduation today [Sunday, 5/31]. The weather forecast did not make an outdoor graduation seem doable. KPHS administration literally put people at risk today. You had elderly, families literally running around in downpours not knowing what to do. I am disgusted. We can do better - the adminstration should be held accountable.

  • 5/27 12:17am   Norfolk Community Day, Saturday June 6
    The Norfolk Lions in conjunction with a number of local organizations are in the final planning stages for the 23rd annual Norfolk Community Day to be held on June 6th at the Holmes Complex on 22 Myrtle Street in Norfolk. Community Day events officially start at 11:00 AM, however the day will be kicked off at 9:00 AM with the annual Norfolk Community League 5K Run/Walk.
    Events at this year's Community Day include a children's art contest, touch a DPW truck, golf ball drop 50/50 raffle and many new and old favorite amusements including the Circus Obstacle Course, Knights & Dragons Bounce and Slide, Soccer Shoot, The Joust and the Bungee Bull Ride.
    The black top entertainment will include a number of local groups who have participated for the last 22 years. Also for the first time this year a new group, Johnny Fireseed and the Junkyard Dogs, will perform music on instruments made entirely of recycled material. This year's schedule of events is:
    On the Main Stage:
    King Philip World Percussion/Steel Drums 11:00 AM
    Kathy Ryan Dance Studio 12:00 PM
    Henry the Juggler 12:40 PM

    Did you know that food pantry supplies are at their lowest during the summer months, especially toward the end of the summer? To help alleviate this problem, the Lions are running a food drive at Community Day. Our goal is to Stuff-A-Truck full of food to be shared between the Norfolk and Franklin food pantries. Some items that are always needed are cereal, baked beans, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, laundry detergent and toiletries. Please help us to reach our goal by bringing your donation to Community Day so we can fill that truck!
    The Norfolk Lions could not undertake this fun event without the wide-spread assistance of all those who volunteer their funds, materials and time. The Lions would like to thank the Norfolk Fire, Police and Highway Departments and the Norfolk Recreation Department for their ongoing support. We are also pleased to acknowledge our platinum, gold and silver sponsors for this year's Community Day. Platinum: Holmes Transportation, 1776 Financial Services, Dedham Savings Bank, Foxboro Federal Savings Bank, Zolli Enterprises; Gold: Carpentry by Tom Antonellis, George T. Cronin & Sons, Dover Trucking, Dunkin Donuts, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Environmental Partners Group, Federated Church of Norfolk, Minuteman Press of West Newton, Norfolk Community League, Norfolk Cultural Council, Peter Conte, Roche Brothers, Rodman Ford, RJ Ross Funeral Home, Snead Retirement Consulting, Stop & Shop; Silver: Berkshire Hathaway Page Realty, ECO Structures Inc., Elite Foods, Printmaster Tee Shirts & More, St. Jude's Church and Taylor Rental of Norfolk.
    The Lions are a non-profit organization known for working to end preventable blindness. Norfolk Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to our community and proceeds of Community Day are donated back into local charities or to meet community needs.

  • 5/26 10:32pm   6th Annual Norfolk Community Day Youth Art Show; Promoting Our Community through the Arts
    For the 6th year the Norfolk Lions are sponsoring a youth art show open to all Norfolk residents in grades 1 through 6. The art work submitted should represent a 'Scene around Norfolk/Your Community'. The Youth Art Show, where all the art work will be displayed, will be held at Norfolk Community Day on June 6, 2015 at the Holmes Complex, 22 Myrtle St., Norfolk. In addition, all art work will become a part of a slide show that will be broadcast on Norfolk Cable TV.
    This show is free to all participants, with one entry per person. Artwork submitted on paper may be no larger than 11-inches by 17-inches. This year we will also accept art work of other mediums. Each entry must include an entry form taped to the backside of the art. Entry forms are given to all children in the Norfolk public schools. Additional forms are also available in the main lobby of the Norfolk Public Library.
    Entries will also be judged by a panel appointed by the Norfolk Lions in three age groups: grades 1 and 2, grades 3 and 4, and grades 5 and 6. Winners will be selected based on artistic creativity, neatness and originality. All entries will receive an award and winners in each age group will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and honorable mention ribbons. But that's not all - the 1st place winners in each age group and one Grand Prize winner will also each receive gift certificates! These winning entries will be displayed at the Norfolk Library, for all to see, for two weeks after Community Day.
    The contest entry deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29. Entries can be placed in the collection boxes at the Freeman Kennedy or HOD schools, or mailed or dropped off in person to:

  • 5/3 10:06pm   I didn't realize there are two different versions of the Country Gazette. The one I received at home on May 1 did not have the article on page A-2 that my friend's paper had. The article headline is ``Questions Raised over Candidates Record''. One might think it was referring to a candidate's voting record, but if you have a chance to see the article, you'll realize it is his behavior record that is in question including a recent arrest (December). The article is about Kevin Doolin, a current Recreation Commissioner. I think a person that has had ``at least a half a dozen incidents where the police have had to intervene'' as this article states based on information from the Norfolk Police, should not hold any elected or appointed position and he should certainly not be elected to the position of Selectman. Mr. Doolin, please withdraw and please resign.

    Political Experience: Recreation commission 2010-2013; Board of selectmen 2012-present.

    Party Affiliation: Republican.

    Top Priority: ``I want to continue what I have started on many fronts. I want to continue the expansion of the commercial tax base which means continuing to work on bringing appropriate commercial expansion to our downtown area as well as in the town's other commercial areas. I want to continue the possible regionalizing of certain town services to provide the most efficient and cost effective services for our town. I want to continue to work with the other committees and boards that work so diligently to serve Norfolk.''

    Position on Issue 1: What needs to be improved in town?

    ``Obviously we need to continue to work on improving our roads. This is a high-profile concern especially after the extreme weather we had this winter. I believe our schools and public safety departments are operating well but we are always looking to make improvements to better serve the residents of Norfolk.''

    Position on Issue 2: How would you help maintain town services and hold down taxes?

    ``I think that it is vital to expand the town's commercial tax base but it is equally important to maintain Norfolk's small town charm. We have not had an operating budget override since 2005. During this time we have had to make budget cuts and staff reductions, but we have been able to avoid making cuts in services to our residents. I am director of sales at Investment Metrics in Norfolk and have also worked as an investment adviser for over 10 years so I feel that my financial background is an asset during the budgetary process.''

    Favorite book or movie: Movie ``It's a Wonderful Life.''

    Who would you most like to have dinner with and why? ``Honestly I want to have dinner with both of my children and wife, all four of us together.''

    Quote: ``9/11 Never Forget.''

    Kevin Doolin Age: 54.

    Address: 13 Sweetland Farm Road

    Family: Married to Angie Doolin and children Erin and Conor.

    Education: Suffolk University, bachelor of science in journalism

    Occupation: Owner of K.D. Cleaning Co.

    Political Experience: Currently serving a three-year-term on recreation commission.

    Party Affiliation: Unenrolled

    Top Priority: Addressing high taxes and improving town roads.

    Position on Issue 1: What needs to be improved in town?

    ``The escalating Norfolk residential tax rate to $17.66 per $1,000. This is burdening our senior citizens and middle class wage earners. Norfolk residents and taxpayers deserve great public roads in addition to our great schools and public safety. If elected, I would propose a warrant article spring or fall during my term and earmark the $250,000 town savings/earnings from Norfolk's Recycling/Transfer Station's two solar arrays'' for roadwork.

    Position on Issue 2: How would you help maintain town services and hold down taxes?

    ``Norfolk needs line-item budgeting so residents and taxpayers are given a clear picture and ability to make personal town financial judgments. We need to unbundle the budget. One of my first year goals would be to reduce Norfolk's $30,000,000 budget by $1,000,000. We need to substantially reduce Norfolk's litigation costs. Let's broker compromise and support residents, business owners, developers and land owners.''

    Favorite book or movie: Movie ``Inside Llewyn Davis.''

    Who would you most like to have dinner with and why: ``Pat Metheny. My inspiration through life. Music nurtures the soul.''

    Quote: ``Stay involved. Speak up for the children. And no matter what, shoot straight.''

  • 5/3 9:19pm   Today I attended the funeral of Jim Foley. For those of you that do not know Mr. Foley, he was a firefighter / EMT, former Deputy Fire Chief and former head of the highway department for the town of Norfolk. Today while driving through town I noticed that the flag on the Town Hill and at the Town Hall were at half staff, however the flag at the fire department was not. I'm not sure if the town had the flags at half staff for Mr. Foley or not but I do know that if the town ordered the flags at half staff then ALL town facilities must follow. I am a 10 year veteran of the Air Force and I find this to be disrespectful. The fire department should be ashamed of itself for its lack of respect for the death of a person who dedicated years to serving the town. I demand the fire department post an apology to not only the Foley family but also the town for such a display.
    Justin Snow - former Norfolk resident and also step son to the deputy fire chief of Norfolk.

  • 4/21 7:07pm   Opening of Fales Memorial Park on Sunday, April 26, 2015
    The Ceremony for Opening the Fales Memorial Park Preserve will be conducted at 2:00 P.M. at 24 Campbell Street, Norfolk, by the Arch Bridge. This location will serve as the main entrance to the Park. The land that has been designated as Fales Park at Highland Lake in 2008 was purchased with Community Preservation funds. This tract on the east side of Highland Lake replaces the original 13 Acres of Fales land that Bertha Fales donated to the Town of Norfolk in 1943. The original parcel was located north of Campbell Street on the west side of the Stop River. This land was taken by eminet domain in 1980 and became part of the Chales River Valley Natural Storage Area under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Norfolk Historical Commission has spearheaded the effort to establish this park commerorating the contributions of the Fales Family to the Town of Norfolk. Finally 72 years after Bertha donated land for a Memorial Park it will become a reality on April 26, 2015. The Norfolk Historical Commission and the Walpole Historical Society invite you all to join us to mark this occasion.

  • 4/21 7:02pm   Norfolk Lions Community Day, Saturday June 6, 2015
    Save the date! June may seem like a long way off, but the Norfolk Lions Community Day team is already planning this annual event. This years event resurrects the original Old Tyme Day theme from years past when times were a little slower and more affordable. Community Day 2015 will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 11:00 until 4:00. Once again the Holmes Family has graciously agreed to host the event at their property at 22 Myrtle Street, Norfolk.
    This will be the Lions' 23rd year bringing a day of family fun and entertainment. The Lions goal is to provide a country fair type environment including music, dancing, games, petting animals, hayrides, train rides, pie eating contest , foam for kids to play in, food and historical displays. This is an event for the entire Norfolk Community to come out, celebrate and get to know neighbors. The Lions welcome your participation and invite any Norfolk business, organization, neighborhood or group to participate in Community Day. Groups and organizations (including corporations) can take part in a number of ways, whether by setting up a booth or tent, sponsoring an activity or entertainment, or simply by becoming a sponsor. There is no set fee to participate, but we do ask that you provide something in return. For example, if your company wants to have a booth, then you should have something to offer that will add to the fun such as a game or activity, or provide financial support that will be used towards other expenses. You can also sponsor an event or entertainment. We are flexible; just tell us what you have in mind.
    Help make Norfolk Community Day 2015 one of the best and join the fun. You may contact the Norfolk Lions Club at norfolkcommunityday@gmail.com or call Frank Z. @ 508-520-0203 or Patti M. @ 508-520-0540.
