Senior Center and

Medway Cable Access

fact, “Good to Know,”

the new cable program

aired at 8 a.m. and 4

p.m. on Medway channels

8 Comcast and

Channel 36 Verizon focuses

on topics relevant

not only to seniors, but

to the Medway community

as a whole.

What is the Path

Forward on Millis

Retail Marijuana Sales?

By Herby Highman

At the May 14th Millis town

meeting, the zoning proposal for

marijuana sales in Millis did not

pass, leaving Millis residents wondering

what happens next in the

process.

James McCaffrey, a member

of the Board of Selectmen, says,

“The moratorium remains in effect

until the end of the year, but

it’s important for the town to develop

a general bylaw.”

The article carried a majority

vote of 99-75, but fell short of the

two-thirds majority required to

pass.

The towns of Holliston, Medway,

and Bellingham have already

voted to ban retail sales of recreational

marijuana. Discussions in

Millis center not around whether

cultivation and sales are allowed,

but rather the restrictions under

which cultivation and sales can

occur.

“There are two parallel tracks

we’re going to be heading down,”

says McCaffrey. “One is the development

of what we’re calling

general bylaws, nuisance bylaws.

These would apply with respect to

noise, odor, traffic, lighting, anything

you would have connected

with a commercial operation. And

then we do have the zoning rules

that we’re going to be working

on.”

An overlay zone creates a special

zoning district, placed over an

existing base zone, which identifies

special provisions in addition

to those in the underlying base

zone. In this case, the underlying

zone is an industrial zone (IP2),

and the overlay would add additional

setback stipulations.

Previous proposals have had

setbacks of 1500 feet from special

use locations such as schools, the

library, and places of worship.

Millis’s bylaws for medical marijuana

already stipulate a 1,000-

foot setback.

“Any zoning bylaw has to go

through the Planning Board as

well,” says McCaffrey. “Both

elected bodies will seek to address

the issue one way or the

other.”

Two businesses are currently

looking to establish locations in

Millis.

CommCan, Inc. has plans

to sell medical marijuana at a

facility on 1525 Main Street.

Businesses already involved in

medical marijuana usage have

priority status to transition to

adult recreational usage. At the

time being, they have a retail location

in Southborough, with a

cultivation facility in Medway.

617 Therapeutic Health

Center wants to have a medical

marijuana facility at 1073 Main

Street, hoping to later add nonmedical

manufacture and cultivation

to the site. 617’s initial

plans also included retail. This

property abuts Ryan’s Amusements

as well as residential property.

The Board of Selectmen will

be continuing discussion on the

matter when it meets in July. The

current moratorium on retail

marijuana sales remains in place

until the end of the year. In the

event that no new article passes,

the moratorium will expire, and

retail sales can take place under

current industrial and commercial

bylaws.

“If nothing passes,” McCaffrey

says, “we’ve got a problem.

The goal from the board’s point

of view would be to create a

bylaw proposal that people could

support at the town meeting.”

Town input is much appreciated

at further meetings, and will

be especially important come

November. The exact wording

of the question is not yet available.

At press time, there was another

Board of Selectmen meeting

scheduled for June 25th.

There will also be a Planning

Board meeting at Tuesday, July

10, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Veterans

Memorial Building.

“Our goal is to connect our

community with relevant resources

and information, to show

how diverse our senior center is,

and to become more inclusive

to everyone in the community,”

says Kate Fennyery, Licensed Social

Worker and Medway Senior

Center Outreach Worker.

In mid-June, “Good to Know”

filmed the Senior Center’s

monthly “Coffee and Conversation

with a Selectman,” which

takes place the second Tuesday

of each month and looks at topics

relevant to all Medway residents.

Past shows have focused

on the Norfolk County Registry

of Deeds, and another focused

on Compassionate Care Hospice.

The relationship between

the Medway Senior Center and

Medway Cable Access began a

couple years ago, says Marcia

Lombardo, Outreach worker

for the senior center. “We had

started an intergenerational veterans

project that matches vets

with high school students, and

Cable Access came and did a little

filming while it was going on.

Then we got a student to film the

actual event, and Medway Cable

had it on their station. It went

over really well and had a good

turnout, and they’ve run it many

times on cable.”

“That kind of started our relationship

and got Barry Schneier

and Amy Huff from Medway

Cable thinking about how we

can work together,” says Lombardo.

“They started taping the

lectures, and that’s what we’ve

been doing on a regular basis.”

Medway Cable Access has

been fabulous, loaning us equipment,

training us on how to use

their equipment, creating a program

for us and now they have

even created a specific ‘senior

hour’ (8 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily)

which can be seen on Medway’s

Cable Channel 8 (Comcast) and

Channel 36 (Verizon), and if

someone does not have cable, it

can be seen on Medway Cable

Access’s Facebook page under

‘videos,’” says Fennyery.

“This is definitely not programming

just for seniors,” says

Schneier. “The programming is

great for anyone who knows they

need content and will be making

decisions.”

Regarding training Medway

Senior Center staff on how to

use cameras and equipment, as

well as loaning equipment out,

Amy Huff, Studio Manager at

Medway Cable Access, says that

is something that has always been

available to Medway residents.

“We don’t just provide equipment,

but we also provide the

training. You are able to take out

equipment, and we offer a series

of classes to Medway residents at

no charge,” says Huff. The next

series of classes will be offered in

the fall.

“Part of my function as access

coordinator is to basically

introduce (residents) to cable,”

says Schneier. “We’re here as a

service to you, like a public library,

but instead of books, you

can check out equipment. People

often come by and say, ‘I didn’t

know this existed.’ Everyone contributes

to the fees through cable

bills, so the cost is nothing. If

people are really interested, they

have access to state-of-the-art

equipment. They can produce

good looking stuff they can be

proud of.” One Medway resident,

he explains, learned how to

use all the equipment to produce

a podcast on genealogy.

“It’s not ‘Wayne’s World,’”

says Huff, “and although you

can’t package it and sell it, people

can share it to their own

Facebook pages and websites.”

Both Huff and Schneier say

even Medway businesses can

take part, so long as they are producing

programming of value to

the community and not simply

advertising their products.

“We do have an acupuncturist

in Medway that produces a show

called ‘Health, Naturally,’ about

alternative care. Businesses can

create programs to raise awareness

about their industry,” says

Huff.

Huff says the relationship

with the senior center is symbiotic.

“Our job is to reach out as

a community resource, it’s just a

good partnership.”

Future “Good to Know”

subject matter will include an

overview of the Medway Senior

Center’s health fair participants,

and fall topics the senior center

is considering include Meals-on-

Wheels, Home Care, protective

services, and information on Tri-

Valley Elder Services or the Ombudsman

program.

Fennyery believes that airing

the programs will also be useful

for those who might be hesitant

to attend a talk on SNAP benefits,

for example. “Sometimes it’s

more private at home,” she says.

“Video is just so pervasive in

our society, on TV or online,”

says Schneier.

If you have an idea for a show

on Good to Know, contact Marcia

Lombardo at the Medway

Senior Center.

As Medway and Millis green

up for summer (finally!) we say

goodbye to the unwelcome cold

and hello to even more unwelcome

ticks.

Headlines are proclaiming

this year to be an especially bad

one for ticks, but in some ways,

it doesn’t matter. “Whether it’s

going to be a bad season for ticks

or not,” says Beth Hallal, Health

Director for the Town of Medway,

“it’s always really important

to check yourself for ticks.”

The CDC lists sixteen different

tick-borne diseases on CDC.

gov, but in this part of the country,

it’s Lyme disease that has our

attention. Mass.gov reports over

4500 cases of Lyme disease in

Massachusetts in 2016.

“You need to check yourself

all the time,” Hallal stresses.

“Lyme disease can take a very

healthy person down, and it can

really harm older people.”

While most of us have expect

a bulls-eye rash after a Lyme infection,

that only occurs in 70%

of the cases. The most common

early symptoms are fever, chills,

headache, fatigue, muscle and

joint aches, and swollen lymph

nodes. These symptoms are

easily-overlooked or mistaken

for other ailments. Later symptoms

can include headaches,

joint pain, dizziness, nerve pain,

inflammation of the brain and

spinal cord, and memory loss.

Because Lyme can cause such

devastating effects, prevention is

of utmost importance.

What You Can Do:

• When possible, avoid places

that harbor ticks. Wooded

and brushy areas, for example,

and tall stands of grass

are havens for ticks.

• Use insect repellants on your

clothing or on your skin. Follow

the product instructions

for best results, and always

avoid contact with hands,

eyes, and mouth.

• For hiking or other unavoidable

exposure to ticks, pretreated

clothing may offer

more protection for a longer

time.

• Perform tick checks whenever

you may have been

exposed to ticks. Use a handheld

mirror if necessary, and

pay special attention to waist

bands, skin folds, and hair.

• Bathe or shower within two

hours to wash off any ticks

that haven’t yet attached to

you.

• Examine your belongings.

Examine your pets. Ticks like

• Speaking of pets, ask your

• Ten minutes on high heat

checks. “It’s very important.”

The Bank on Campus

You visit prospective colleges, taking note of what bank is on or near campus.

But why?

Is it ATM access?

That bank may have a machine there, but what about when you’re off campus,

traveling, or home? They charge a fee on top of the ATM fee, all for the privilege of

accessing your money from another bank’s ATM.

But they have “Student Checking.”

Just because they name it after students, doesn’t make it the best option for

students.

There is a better, local option.

Even without “Student” in the name, NB Checking is ideal for those going off

to school. It’s free, pays interest and automatically reimburses every fee at every

ATM in the world; essentially making every ATM your ATM. And no need to visit

a branch with NB Mobile; easily deposit checks, transfer money, earn cash back

rewards and pay bills with your smartphone or tablet.

No 1-800 Numbers.

NB Checking comes with something their “Student Checking” can’t: Needham

Bank. With us, you receive concierge levels of service, regardless of your account

balance. If NB Checking is the right choice for you, it’s easier than you think to

open an account.

Start a conversation with Millis’s personal banker, Steve Walls, at 781-247-6881 or

SWalls@NeedhamBank.com. You can also visit Steve at 857 Main Street in Millis.

The Few. The Proud. The Marines.

By Bill Maguire, The Norfolk

County Marine Corps

League Detachment

You’ve seen the ads. You’ve

been called Devil Dog, Leatherneck

and even sometimes Jarhead.

All terms of endearment

for a Marine. From the moment

the Drill Instructor stepped on

that bus at 2 a.m. at Parris Island

or San Diego and “politely”

asked you to get off His bus and

you stepped on those Yellow

footprints, the transformation

began. Thirteen grueling weeks

later, you are marching across the

Parade Deck for the first time as

one of The Few, The Proud, a

Marine. You’ve earned it, The

Eagle, Globe and Anchor. You’ve

earned it and no one can take

that away from you. You now

have a bond between you and

other Marines unlike any other

branch of service.

A Rank, and Skills, to

Last a Lifetime

By J.D. O’Gara

Only four percent of Boy

Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle

Scout, but in the Arego family

of Medway, 100% of Boy

Scouts achieved this rank, as

of last year. Ryan, 24, Tim, 18,

and Nick Arego, 16, of Medway

Troop 367, all put in years of

work to earn 21 merit badges,

demonstrated that they lived by

the principles of Scout Oath and

Scout Law, showed leadership in

Scouting and their community,

and completed an Eagle Scout

service project.

“My sons got involved and got

invited to other court of honors

and saw how great it was, and

they helped their peers get to

Eagle rank,” says Frank Arego,

who helped serve as a Cub Scout

and Boy Scout leader, who points

out that the Medway troop has

turned out a good number of

Eagle Scouts. “It’s a great community

and a great structure –

sportsmanship, and fitness and

good citizenship.” Arego says he

appreciates that his sons, who

also have a sister, learned to “do

good as a citizen, to work as a citizen

not only in the community

but in the nation as a whole.

“They see themselves as

something larger,” says Beth

Arego, of her three sons. She

describes scouting as a type of

family. “They learn at an early

age that in scouting, there are

goals you have to achieve to advance,

steps they have to take to

move ahead. They’re moving at

their own pace, and people give

them the tools to be successful,

and they feel that, but how they

choose to get from point A to B

is up to them. When they finally

reach Eagle, they realize how

rare that is, and the commitment

is really long working toward

that.” Arego says that each of

her sons is unique, and that there

was something in scouting for

each of them. “They also have

some great memories of scouting

adventures, and they can really

appreciate nature. The skills

will stay with them for a lifetime.”

Ryan Arego was the first of

the three brothers to attain Eagle.

These days, he works as a Legislative

Aide to Rep. Jeff Roy, but

back at 17, he focused his attention

at giving back to the American

Legion in town.

“We used to have Boy Scouts

at the American Legion on Cottage

Street,” says Ryan. “They

were always so good to us. Another

scout redid the tank they

had there and did landscaping,

and there was a side yard, parallel

to the building. I decided to

make a bocce court for the members

of the Legion or Boy Scouts

Team-Building Day for Medway

Sophomores a School Tradition

On June 7th, Medway High

School sophomores took part in

the schools 12th annual IPEC

day. Interdisciplinary Physical

Education Curriculum, or

IPEC, has been the cornerstone

of the Wellness program for over

40 years. The course focuses on

team building, leadership, outdoor

survival skills and includes

a challenge course and rockclimbing

component.

Medway HS Wellness teacher

and IPEC coordinator Janet

Trottier said that “IPEC is a

Medway tradition. Every year

I have parents of current 10th

grade students who are MHS

alumni themselves share their

memories of when they participated

in IPEC.” MHS Wellness

teachers Dave Murphy and

Karl Infanger echo the impact

IPEC has on students. “It truly

changes a person, challenging

them both physically and mentally,”

said Infanger.

During this year’s IPEC Day,

the students put their newly fashioned

skills to the test. Throughout

the event, wearing a rainbow

of colors with names like “Vineyard

Climbs” and “Shackleton’s

Crew”( taking their name from

one of the most harrowing survival

stories of the HMS Endurance

that was studied during the

year.) each class took part in 11

different initiatives where they

had to work together to solve

and conquer to wear the crown

of IPEC day champions.

This summer, the IPEC program

will be featured in the

Medway

Wellness Walk (MWW). The

MWW starts between Lamson

field and North field at the HS.

The walk features 12 window

boxes that will feature the year

in IPEC and will be installed by

the Leaders Club. The IPEC

leaders club are upperclassman

who continue their leadership

training working closely with

the teachers and students. IPEC

leaders facilitate classes, help reinforce

skills, and motivate their

class.

E-mail Kevin Collins (kcollins@medwayschools.org)

if your

organization would like to take

part in a MWW installation.

Past President of Millis Lions Elected

Mass. Lions District 33K Governor

By J.D. O’Gara

Debbie Hayes can’t say

enough about Lions Club International.

The recently elected

Massachusetts District 33K

Lions Governor, who will step

into the role on July 3rd, lights up

when she talks about her experience

being a Lion.

“I’ve met a lot of people in

this organization,” says Hayes,

who joined the Millis Lions

Club in 2010, has served as that

club’s president from 2014-2016,

and was named Massachusetts

District 33K Lion of the Year

on June 4th. “The number one

thing that has kept me so engaged,

other than the mission, is

that the people that I’ve met are

the most dedicated, completely

loving, giving individuals, and

I have made friends with these

individuals. I can’t imagine them

now not in my life.”

Hayes will be joined by Medway

Lion’s Club member Dawn

Rice-Norton as the 1st Vice District

33K Governor, Dr. Deb

Wayne, of Malden Lion’s Club,

as the 2nd Vice District Governor,

and Donna Merrick, from

Plainville Lion’s Club, as the

Cabinet Secretary Treasurer for

the District.

Hayes points to the wealth of

time members put in to help others

in need. Many, she says, take

their own time and money to

travel to other countries to help

vaccinate those in need or distribute

eyeglasses.

“They’re so committed to the

mission and the act of service,

they sacrifice personally to help

those that have less than them,”

says Hayes. “Ultimately, that’s

the best form of a legacy anyone

and leave to someone else on this

planet, to make someone else’s

life better who cannot repay

you.”

In Millis, Hayes is part of

an executive board of about 15

people.

“The club receives requests

for suport and the board votes

on how much money we’re going

to send them,” says Hayes, who

adds that the group receives calls

from the schools for help for individuals

that need help such as

eye exam’s and/or eyeglasses or

hearing aids. When one young

man had an accident that left

him using a wheelchair, for example,

the Millis Lions donated

money and volunteer hours to

install a wheelchair ramp at his

home, and they also installed

one at St. Thomas Large Hall.,

revamped the town animal shelter

and rebuilt the porch for the

American Legion. “We love giving

back to the citizens of Millis,”

says Hayes. She sees her top

responsibility “to be the cheerleader

for all of the clubs and all

of our members. It’s easy – they

do such great things. They’re in

their communities, and they’re

helping people in need.”

Hayes expects to visit each of

the 48 clubs in her district, which

is one of five in the state, attending

their events and promoting

goodwill between the Lions and

their communities. She will also

take on the fiscal responsibility

of making sure money collected

by the Lions gets distributed to

various organizations it supports,

such as the Carroll Center for the

Blind, Mass Lions Eye Research,

Fidelco Dogs, and NEADS, to

name a few.

Hayes says that as a representative

of this group, she aims

to put her best foot forward to

deliver the message of the work

that the Lions Club does. “We try

to encourage members to join,”

says Hayes. “One of the misconceptions

is that all Lions do is vision

and blindness, when that is

only a fifth or sixth of what we

do. There’s a huge youth component.

We support a youth international

exchange camp, and

the Lions Quest, a workshop and

leadership skills development

program for kids. We support the

LEOS, and personally, for my

district, I’m leading Teddies for

Tots, collecting new stuffed animals

for kids who are inpatient or

at home undergoing chemotherapy.”

The Lions also sponsors an

annual Peace Poster and Speech

contest, says Hayes, and provides

vaccinations, health screenings

for blindness, and support in Diabetes

and youth cancer research.

On top of supporting various

children’s and health causes, the

group pushes environmental issues,

such as cleanups and tree

plantings. The Massachusetts

District also participates in Rise

against Hunger each spring,

packaging 12,000 meals in 2

hours to help feed hungry people.

Each Lions group also supports

charities and organizations

in their communities. Money collected

from bottle and can recycling

by Millis and Medway, for

example, supports causes in their

communities.

“People interested in Lions

Clubs can join to volunteer with

a program, or they can initiate a

new program,” says Hayes.

“The number one thing about

Lions is it offers leadership skills

by way of online programs and

educational training sessions so

that you can hone leadership

skills that you carry over into

your professional and personal

life. There’s an opportunity for

anyone who gets involved in

Lions to grow and develop.”

As for being a woman in leadership

of her district, Hayes takes

it in stride.

“Women weren’t allowed to

be Lions until 1986,” says Hayes,

“but Massachusetts has always

been at the forefront of women

in leadership in Lions. Of the

five governors coming in in Massachusetts,

two are women, and

there have been years where

there’s been three or four. I think

it’s been great in giving women

coming up role models. This

year, our 101st year, will have the

very first woman to lead Lions

International, ever. It’s quite on

achievement”

As of early June, the Millis

Lions had 56 members, and the

Medway Lions had 51 members,

with 1,850 Lions in District 33K,

says Hayes. If you would like to

owner Tina M. Stevens said, “but we’ve only

moved a short distance away to Quarry Plaza, so

we’re still conveniently located.”

The new Salon is more spacious and easily accommodates

service we’ve provided our clients for more than

three decades.”

Because trust and relationships are so important,

Tina and her staff treat their customers not

just as clients but as friends. “Everyone is part of

the Salon family,” Tina noted.

Staff have a long tenure, and each stylist is

proud to have his or her own long-time clientele,

many tipping the 20-year mark.

Tina’s daughter, Elisha Brayman, has worked

by her mom’s side for 18 years now, starting when

Tina opened her first business.

Both are nationally-certified and recognized

colorists with the highest level of knowledge in

chemistry and science, combined with art and

fashion. They are highly skilled in foil, highlights,

balayage, single-process and creative hair coloring

is one of the most basic strategies

to keep your vision healthy

throughout your life.

You may be somewhat aware

of the possible risks of eye injuries,

but are you taking the easiest

step of all to prevent 90 percent

of those injuries: wearing the

proper protective eyewear? If

you are not taking this step, you

are not alone. According to a

national survey by the American

Academy of Ophthalmology,

only 35 percent of respondents

said they always wear protective

eyewear when performing home

repairs or maintenance; even

fewer do so while playing sports.

Eye Injury Facts and Myths

Men are more likely to sustain

an eye injury than women.

Most people believe that eye injuries

are most common on the

job — especially in the course of

work at factories and construction

sites. But, in fact, nearly half

(44.7 percent) of all eye injuries

occurred in the home. More than

40 percent of eye injuries are

caused by projects and activities

such as home repairs, yard work,

cleaning and cooking. More than

a third (34.2 percent) of injuries

in the home occurred in living

areas such as the kitchen, bedroom,

bathroom, living or family

room. More than 40 percent

of eye injuries every year are related

to sports or recreational activities.

Eyes can be damaged by

sun exposure, not just chemicals,

dust or objects.

Among all eye injuries, more

than 78 percent were in people

not wearing eyewear at the time

of injury. Of those reported to

be wearing eyewear of some sort

at the time of injury (including

glasses or contact lenses), only

5.3 percent were wearing safety

or sports glasses.

You might think that the family

home is a fairly unthreatening

setting. However, medical statis-

tics tell a different story: nearly

half of all eye injuries each year

occur in and around the home,

and home-based injuries are increasing

each year.

This alarming trend is why

the American Academy of Ophthalmology

and the American

Society of Ocular Trauma now

recommend that every household

have at least one pair of

ANSI-approved protective eyewear

for use during projects and

activities that may present risk of

injury.

Eye injuries during Fourth

of July celebrations:

Happy 4th of July to all! It

will be a great day to celebrate

our nation’s Independence. Unfortunately,

along with the 4th of

July celebrations, come a lot of

injuries from personal fireworks.

Eye injuries from fireworks can

be especially debilitating. Public

fireworks displays are regarded

as safe, and have a lower incidence

of personal injuries. An

estimated 10,500 injuries occur

from fireworks each year. Children

are frequent victims, as 35

percent of individuals injured

by fireworks were age 15 and

under. Children under 5 years

old were most commonly injured

by sparklers. Roughly 1 in 5 of

those caused trauma to the eye.

The eye injuries were most commonly

caused by firecrackers.

Avoid firecrackers as they should

only be handled by professionals.

Common Eye Injury Risks in the

House:

1- Using hazardous products

and chemicals such as oven

cleaner and bleach for cleaning

and other chores (accidents

involving common

household products cause

125,000 eye injuries each

year).

2- Cooking foods can that can

splatter hot grease or oil.

3- Opening champagne bottles

during a celebration.

4- Drilling or hammering screws

or nails into walls or hard surfaces

like brick or cement; the

screws or nails can become

projectiles, or fragments can

come off the surface.

5- Using hot objects such as

curling irons around the face;

inadvertent contact with the

user’s eyes can cause serious

injury.

6- Loose rugs and railings or

other hazards that could

cause falls or slips.

Common Injury Risks in the

Yard:

1-Mowing the lawn.

2-Using a power trimmer or

edger.

3-Clipping hedges and bushes.

Common Eye Injury Risks in the

Garage or Workshop:

1-Using tools (power or hand).

2-Working with solvents or

other chemicals.

3-Any task that can produce

fragments, dust particles or

other eye irritants.

4-Securing equipment or loads

with bungee cords.

For all these activities, it’s

important to remember that

bystanders also face significant

risk and should take precautions

against eye injuries too. This is

particularly important for children

who watch their parents

perform routine chores in and

around the home. Bystanders

should wear eye protection too

or leave the area where the chore

is being done.

Preventing Eye Injuries at Home

Wearing protective eyewear

will prevent 90 percent of eye

injuries, so make sure that your

home has at least one approved

pair and that you and your family

members wear the eyewear when

risks come into play.

There will still be occasions

when accidents and injuries

happen. Consider taking some

of these safety steps around the

home to diminish the risks even

more:

1-Read the labels of chemicals

and cleaners carefully, and

don’t mix products.

4-Check the lawn or the outdoor

Ken Hamwey:

Over 50 Years of Writing, and Still Having Fun

By J.D. O’Gara

“Get in.”

Those are the words Ken

Hamwey, at age 24 in 1967 and

working the Celtics beat as a

sports writer for the Framingham

News, will never forget, coming

from legendary Celtics coach

Red Auerbach.

In a tumultuous time for the

country, on April 5, 1968, the

Celtics, featuring Bill Russell, and

the Philadelphia 76ers, with great

Wilt Chamberlain, had decided

to go ahead with the seventh

game of their series. The Celtics

had trailed the 76ers three games

to one in their Eastern Conference

playoff series, but had made

history in coming back to win the

following three games. The day

before that seventh game, on

April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther

King, Jr. was assassinated.

“Never before in the history

of pro basketball had a basketball

team trailed 3-1 and rallied

to win games five and six, and

seven” says Hamwey. Chamberlain,

he says, had not wanted to

play, but Russell had wanted to

play the game in King’s honor.

The game would be played, but

not without tension. In the end,

the Celtics won the nail-biter, but

Ken, one of several Celtics writers

who’d taken a charter flight to

Philly, ran into a snafu.

“You’ve got a telephone and

a notebook in front of you in

the press row, and there’s a row

of typewriters. I had to call the

story in to the Framingham

sports editor, but I couldn’t get a

line through.” After 45 minutes,

Hamwey finally got through,

but worried that he’d missed the

town car scheduled to take him

and the other writers back to the

airport. Convinced he would be

stranded for the night, he walked

out of the Spectrum to find Red

Auerbach pacing outside the

town car.

“Here I am, 24 years old, and

the greatest coach and executive

of all time is waiting,” says

Hamwey. “I turned to an oldtime

Globe writer and said, ‘it’s

unbelievable that he waited.’ Jack

Barry said to me, ‘Red is very

loyal. He said we’re not going

anywhere until the kid from

Framingham shows up.’”

Sports writer Ken Hamwey has

over half a century of experience.

HAMWEY

continued from page 16

Now 74, Hamwey has been a

journalist for over half a century,

if you count his semi-retirement

writing for seven Local Town Pages

papers, and acting as sports editor

for both The Bellingham Bulletin

and Blackstone Enlightener. He’s

tackled last minute stories with

impossible deadlines such as the

night the Boston Red Sox’s Carlton

Fisk hit a home run in the

1975 World Series and in 1976,

when the Boston Celtics played

the Phoenix Suns in a championship

game that went into

triple overtime. He even landed

the only exclusive interview with

Marvin Fishman, the new owner

of a new franchise, the Milwaukee

Bucks.

“Writing isn’t just a hobby,”

says Hamwey. “It’s a way of life.

I never felt like I was working at

all – it’s just fun to be surrounded

by sports stories.”

Born and raised in Natick,

Hamwey had set out to follow

in the footsteps of his father,

a successful businessman. He

graduated in 1964 from Babson

College in just three years with

a degree in Finance and Investments

and a minor in Marketing,

but soon realized he was not cut

out for that field.

A fan of sports, although he

had never tried out for varsity

teams, Hamwey decided he

needed to have a job that would

bring him close to his passion.

His father landed him an informational

interview with John

Taylor, then publisher of The

Boston Globe, who advised him to

either attend one of the big journalism

schools, or to “knock on

the doors of the suburban dailies”

to gain experience. Hamwey

chose the latter.

His first gig was as a news

correspondent at the Framingham

News for $5 a story. He interviewed

the Millis Coach Ernie

Richards, of Hopedale, for his

first story. A couple months and

10 stories in, he was hired full

time. “I’d write feature or preview

stories of Millis, Medway

or Medfield,” says Hamwey, who

learned on the job working different

sections of the Framingham

paper for six years. After flirting

with a couple of interviews and

job offers with the Worcester Telegram,

at 29, Ken decided to join

the then-Pulitzer-prize-winning

Providence Journal. He’d be there

for the next 35 years, working in

sports and finishing up as night

sports editor.

“Being able to write for 51

years, being able to do edit and

do page design, all three, I feel

blessed in that area,” says Ken,

who was honored at his retirement

in 2008, both for his journalism

and design.

The most rewarding part of

Hamwey’s career, he says, is not

meeting famous people or winning

awards, but it’s helping

people through his work. With

each story, the journalist says he

has striven to be accurate, ethical

and fair.

Hamwey is proud, for example,

of shedding light for the Milford

community on Rudy Fino,

for whom Fino Field is named.

As a part-time correspondent for

The Milford Daily News, he was

asked to write a Memorial Day

story. Ken found information

on Fino, the first Milford son to

give his life in World War II, to

be lacking. His research and subsequent

story led to a town-wide

celebration of Rudy Fino and

recognition of Ken’s contribution.

Ken’s stories on student athletes

have also helped many of

them secure scholarships to colleges

and universities.

“Boys and girls – if they’re

great leaders worthy of a story,

why not publicize them?” asks

Hamwey. The writer, recalls with

a chuckle, that one young man,

Jay Monaghan, the oldestt in a

family of five great male athletes

Ken would cover, added that

the writer also landed his brothers

a few dates. Ken’s coverage

of student athletes earned him

the MIAA Distinguished Friend

award in 2010. “Robert Kraft

got it the following year,” says

Hamwey.

Ken, who says timing is everything,

balanced his career with

raising his son as a single parent

after being widowed at 39. He

later married his son’s secondgrade

teacher, Pauline, with

whom he’ll celebrate 29 years of

marriage this month. Ken says

he lives by a quote attributed

to Calvin Coolidge, that begins,

“Nothing in the world can take

the place of persistence …”

And still, Ken Hamwey persists.

Tim Arego, who has just

Tim’s project, which took

the longest time to complete

among the three brothers.

Nick, the youngest Arego

Eagle Scout, had the benefit

of having his brother Tim as a

mentor.

“Scouts is a scout-run thing;

leaders sort of take a back seat

to things,” says Nick. “Older

scouts will teach the younger

scouts … And there are bonds

you make.” For his Eagle project,

Nick put together, advertised

and hosted a blood drive

at St. Joseph’s Parish Center. He

achieved Eagle a bit younger

than his brothers, and the

achievement is something he’ll

cherish, he says.

“We all saw it through to the

end, and they can’t take it away

from you,” says Ryan. “We’ll

always have the skills. Some of

those merit badges aren’t negotiable,

like first aid, swimming,

biking, hiking. It makes you go

into life a little bit better prepared.”

Sports

Bellingham-Millis Lacrosse Co-Op

a Dream Come True for Burgess

By Christopher Tremblay,

Staff Sports Writer

Millis High School senior

Colin Burgess grew up in Mendon

playing lacrosse for the town

youth league. Having joined the

program in the first grade, Burgess

continued to play lacrosse

up through the eighth grade.

However, once he got into high

school, he found that Millis did

not have a lacrosse program and

thus began to bother Athletic Director

Chuck Grant on a regular

basis hoping to secure a team.

“Once I got into high school, I

kept on Mr. Grant about putting

together a program, but there

just wasn’t all that much interest,

so I eventually gave up on the

idea of Millis having a lacrosse

team,” Burgess said. “When he

told me that we were going to

have a co-op team with Bellingham,

I was beyond thrilled, and

I immediately told my friends.

Originally, seven were interested,

but only three who had previous

lacrosse experience actually

signed up to play.”

Playing as the Bellingham-

Millis Hawks was a dream come

true for Burgess, even if it was

only for his senior season, but

having not picked up a stick since

the eighth grade showed that his

skills had diminished when practices

began.

“That first day I was pretty

rusty, having not played the sport

in about three years, but when

Coach (Steve) Linehan focused

on basic drills easing us back into

the sport I was relieved,” he said.

“He not only acclimated us back

into the game of lacrosse, but

was very patient with the Millis

kids.”

Prior to the merger with Millis,

Bellingham had an athlete

that was going to take on the goal

keeping responsibilities although

he’d really preferred not to.

“I had some previous experience

playing goalie on my youth

teams so I decided to take on the

position for the sake of the team,

Having played lacrosse

as a youth in a Mendon

program, Millis senior Colin

Burgess was thrilled when

the town joined a coop

with Bellingham. Although

he was rusty, he helped

contribute to six victories

for the Bellingham team,

more than any previous

teams.

besides the other kid was more

valuable to the team elsewhere,”

Burgess recalled.

Playing for the Mendon Youth

League, Burgess had previously

played attack before giving goalie

a shot, something that he was interested

in trying.

“I had shown interest, and our

youth team needed a goalie,” he

said. “There is not a lot of people

who want to put their body in

front of a hard little ball coming

at you fast – they’re afraid of getting

hurt.”

According to the Linehan,

Burgess was a standout player for

us, especially playing in his first

varsity season.

“I didn’t know what to expect

from him. In Bellingham, it has

always been a challenge to get

someone to play the goalie position,”

the Hawks Coach said.

“Although he hadn’t played the

position since his youth and was

away from the game, the last few

years he stepped in and played

fantastic. He never complained

about his work load and what he

had to do to help the team.”

Settling in as a first-year goalie

playing on a lower level team in

the Tri Valley League he took a

lot of shots stopping 199 shots or

an average of 12.5 a game.

Millis High Athletics on a Roll During the 2017-18 Campaign

By KEN HAMWEY, Staff

Sports Writer

Winning one state championship

would be considered dynamic

for a high school’s athletic

program, but capturing two state

crowns in one season to kick off

the year is about as good as it

gets.

At Millis High, athletic

achievement for the 2017-18

school year was a stunning chapter

in the Mohawks history. The

autumn season was filled with

success and championships. The

football squad won its second

straight Super Bowl by downing

Hoosac Valley, and the girls’ soccer

team downed Millbury for

another state title. Millis previously

had won a girls’ state soccer

title in 2009.

The Mohawks didn’t stop

with those two state titles. They

wreaked havoc in tourney play in

boys’ soccer and girls volleyball,

stunning a pair of top-notch

squads. The boys’ eliminated

Bourne in a huge opening-round

upset before bowing to Cohasset,

and the volleyball contingent

ousted top-seeded Worcester

Tech in the first round of the Division

4 playoffs.

“The fall season set a positive

tone for the entire year,’’ said

Millis Athletic Director Chuck

Grant. “The football team was

a special group — experienced

and poised. They were unbeaten

as freshmen, all together as jayvees

and aware that we had lost

in three straight Sectional finals.

BURGESS

continued from page 20

“I was not expecting much

from Colin. I was just glad to

have someone who was willing to

play the position,” Linehan said.

“He took a lot of shots, probably

around three times as many as

any other team.”

While the Millis athlete had

not played the game in some

time, he knew that he had to not

only improve his technique in the

next, but also needed to control

his emotions.

“I did improve my defensive

skills,” he said. “But with lacrosse

being a high scoring game, I

would get frustrated at times

The girls’ soccer team learned

how to lead and how to utilize

their leadership skills. The seniors

developed terrific team

chemistry with the underclassmen.

They had high aspirations,

and along the way they

discovered that to achieve their

objectives that it would take hard

work. They were determined and

they were skilled.’’

The autumn season was a

giant plus on another front for

the Mohawks. For the first time

in school history, three teams

competed at Gillette Stadium.

Besides the football team’s appearance

in the Super Bowl, the

boys and girls soccer teams faced

Ashland’s two squads in regularseason

games. The girls won, but

the boys lost.

“A lot of community pride

was on display that night,’’ said

Grant, who’s been the athletic

chief at Millis for 16 years. “As

the school’s A.D., I realized how

far we’ve come to be competing

at such a prominent facility. It

was a special night.’’

The winter season didn’t produce

any state accolades, but

there were tourney appearances

and a league championship.

The girls’ and boys’ basketball

teams qualified for tourney

play, but were eliminated early

— the girls bowing to Oakmont

Regional and the boys losing to

Assabet Valley. The ice-hockey

squad, which is a co-op venture

with Hopedale, finished 12-7

overall and captured the Dual

Valley Conference crown. Five

Sports

boys from Millis competed in

that program.

Elsewhere, there was success

in girls’ gymnastics, a sport in

which Millis co-ops with Medway

and Holliston. That contingent

finished sixth in the states,

and three of the girls were from

Millis. In indoor track, Bethany

Steiner qualified for national

competition in New York in the

two-mile event and finished 12th.

The spring campaign featured

the baseball and softball

teams in tourney play. The boys

lost to Archbishop Williams and

the girls were eliminated by West

Bridgewater. Four Millis boys got

a taste of varsity lacrosse, teaming

up in a co-op program with

Bellingham. That squad posted

a 6-12 record, which is the best

record in boys’ lacrosse at Bellingham.

In track, Katherine

Malewicz won the 200-meter

event at the Tri Valley League’s

championship meet and Lucy

Clayton finished third in the 800

and 4x400 relay at the Division 4

State Meet.

In another area, Millis has

been ultra successful in retaining

coaches. Turnover has been low,

and Grant views that as a major

plus in maintaining continuity.

“Brian Kraby will be replacing

Dana Olson as the football

coach,’’ Grant said. “Everyone

else will be back. Dana, and Dale

Olmsted before him, did a great

job in revitalizing football. Brian

was a player and an assistant

coach here, and I believe he’ll do

an excellent job. We may be the

when I was scored upon. I had

to leave that moment in the past,

shake it off and get my mind

back into the game.”

Last spring as the Bellingham

Blackhawks the lacrosse team

found themselves on the winning

side of the score only once. This

season with the three Millis players

the squad not only equaled its

win total in the first game of the

season (an 11-4 victory during a

rain storm at home), but finished

the year with a 6-12 record.

“Although not knowing fully

what they went through last year

getting that first win was a great

thrill for the program,” the Millis

High athlete said. “During preseason

our goal and total preparation

was to get that first win in

the first game of the season – we

accomplished that.”

Getting that win was the

team’s first goal, the second was

to go out and secure more wins

than any previous Bellingham

team and with those 6 victories,

the Hawks accomplished another

goal.

Individually, Burgess’ only

goal coming into the season was

to have fun, and he certainly did

that; he only wished that it had

happened earlier. Next fall he

will be heading to Norwich (Vermont)

University with the hopes

of continuing to play lacrosse

with a co-op team.

Millis’ size doesn’t hold it back

from success in sports, and this

past year was no exception, says

AD Chuck Grant, who says 72%

of Millis High’s students played

sports this past year.

smallest school in the Tri Valley

League but I’m convinced that

our success stems from the work

ethic of our athletes and the retention

of our coaches.’’

Grant’s vibes for the grid program

shouldn’t be taken lightly.

When he coached varsity football

at Walpole High during an eightyear

stretch, his squads competed

in three Super Bowls and won

two of them.

Athletic participation numbers

and facilities are other facets

that Grant noted. He’s pleased

with the gradual increase in participation

rates but mixed on his

feelings about the school’s athletic

venues.

“About 72 percent of our

student body plays at least one

sport,’’ he noted. “That’s up from

69 percent. And, we had six student-athletes

play three sports. As

for our facilities, the softball field

was upgraded, thanks to a fundraising

effort, and the baseball

field is now being upgraded. Our

football practice field, however,

is outdated and detached. We’re

a school that’s had lots of success

at the state level, and we’ve

shown that we do more with less.

Our athletes deserve first-class facilities.

Going back to the 1960s,

we’ve got the same football field

and the same gym.’’

Another drawback in terms of

facilities occurs in outdoor track.

Millis competes on the road for

every one of its meets. “We’re

one of five schools in the state

that has no outdoor track facility,’’

Grant said. “Yet, we’ve had

league and state champions and

even qualifiers for national competitions.’’

Will more success be in the

mix for Millis when the new

school year kicks off in September?

Grant is optimistic.

“Football should produce

some positive results,’’ he said,

“and the girls’ and boys’ soccer

teams have a lot of returnees.

Volleyball also returns some

key players. Kraby will have his

work cut out in football, because

we’ve lost 17 seniors, but we’ll

present ourselves well because

of our work ethic. Girls’ basketball,

which has won state titles,

will bounce back, and in softball,

we’ll have Abby Doyle back, one

of the league’s top pitchers.’’

Grant emphasized that he’s

encouraged to see student-athletes

inspired. “They recognize

what it means to enhance a program

and to build tradition,’’ he

said. “The kids know that if they

take the risk that goes with hard

work, there are no boundaries.’’

Millis always battles low

numbers, its facilities aren’t very

dynamic, and it is the smallest

school in enrollment in the

TVL. But, those drawbacks are

never excuses. The Mohawks

have been state champs in football,

girls’ soccer, girls’ basketball

and boys’ and girls’ volleyball.

And, they’ve had individual state

champs in track.

No one knows what the crystal

ball has in store for the 2018-19

school year at Millis, but it likely

will be another plus in athletics

for the Mohawks.

Ross Supports

Passage of Public

Safety Bill

Instills Protections for Law Abiding

Gun Owners

Senator Richard J. Ross (R-

Wrentham) joined a bipartisan

coalition of Senate colleagues to

pass H.4539, An Act Relative to

Firearms. The bill is also known

as the ‘red flag’ or ‘ERPO’ bill,

would allow a judge the ability

to order the suspension and surrender

of any licensed firearms

from an at-risk person when petitioned

by that person’s family or

household member. A so called

extreme risk protection order

(ERPO), could be subject to an

appeal as it is imperative that

all citizens have the right to due

process.

The legislation ensures law

abiding gun owners reserve their

rights to own a firearm. Individuals

will still preserve ownership

rights while firearms are

temporarily removed from their

custody by the judge pursuant to

an extreme risk protection order.

Wrongfully targeted persons

will not see their license status

changed. Additionally, the legislation

allows the gun owner to

exercise their right to an appeals

process.

The legislation supplements

Massachusetts’ extensive common-sense

gun control and public

safety regulations which have

led to the lowest rates of gun

deaths in the nation. The legislation

additionally amends the

statute regulating stun guns.

Ross co-sponsored several

successful amendments to the

original language that addressed

the need for due process for all

situations.

“This bill creates the infrastructure

for temporarily removing

a weapon from a person

who may do harm to themselves

or others,” said Senator Ross.

“While giving family members

the tools to help their loved ones,

this legislation puts in place necessary

safe guards for law abiding

gun owners to appeal any court

order if they feel they have been

unjustly targeted. As a supporter

of the 2nd Amendment, I believe

we have crafted legislation

that addresses this issue fairly

and appropriately.”

Mass Audubon Stony Brook Announces Its July Programming!

The Bog at Poutwater Pond:

Saturday, July 7th, from 10 a.m.

-12 p.m. Bogs are unusual places

that are much more common in

Maine than in Massachusetts.

Bogs are characterized by highly

acidic soils and waters which

set the stage for plants and animals

that adapt to these unusual

conditions. Poutwater Pond is a

National Natural Landmark and

Massachusetts’ first Nature Preserve,

home to stunted trees and

shrubs, unusual orchids, and insect

eating plants. Lots to see and

do in this exotic morning exploration.

Fee: $15m/ $18nm

Icky, Creepy and Just Plain

Gross: Saturday, July 7th, from 10

a.m. -12 p.m. Looking for some

Ewww! Then this is the program

for you. Explore the sanctuary in

search of creepy creatures. Join

us as we try to make fake snot

and bounce some pudding. It’s

science and it’s fun! Fee: $8m/

$10nm

Flickering Fireflies: Saturday,

July 7th, from 10 a.m. -12 p.m. Seeing

the flashes of fireflies turns a

warm summer night into a magical

light show. But what is all that

flashing really about? We’ll spend

some time inside making a craft,

exploring the science behind the

glow, and discovering the different

kinds of fireflies that live in

our area. Then we’ll head outside

to search for fireflies on the

sanctuary. Fee: $6m/ $8nm

Family Ponding: Saturday, July

14th, from 10:30 a.m. -12 p.m.

Ducks and geese are impressive

creatures, but if you really want

to find out what is living in the

wetlands you need to look under

the water. Join us as we collect

samples from below the surface,

carefully picking through leaves

and muck for the masters of the

underwater world. How do these

creatures live under the water?

You will be amazed by their adaptations.

Among the creatures

we may discover living below

and on the surface are dragonflies,

side-swimmers, clams, predaceous

diving beetles, water

scorpions and much, much more.

Of course, we will also get our

fingers dirty during the process!

Minimum age: 6. Fee: $6chm-

$9adm/ $7chnm-$11adnm

Getting the Most from Your

Smart Phone Camera: Sunday, July

15th, from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Most of us carry a “so called”

smart phone now days, and the

photographic capabilities of

these compact devices is quite

remarkable. These phone cameras

often provide opportunities

for us to compose, crop, edit and

share our photos. Want to know

how to get the most from your

phone camera? Join us for a short

photo tour and then we will head

out to put those camera phones

through their paces. Fee: $10m/

$12nm

Tiny Trekkers: Saturdays, July

21st, from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Start your weekend off right with

a fun and knowledgeable Stony

Brook teacher on the trails learning

about nature. Each day will

have a special topic created to excite

your child about the natural

world. There will be crafts, activities

and lots of laughter. This

month’s themes: Butterflies &

Moths/ Dragonflies & Damselflies.

Ages 2.9 to 6 with a parent.

Fee: $5m/$6nm per person per

session

Did You Know?

Prospective real estate investors

who hope to buy, hold and

rent out their investment properties

should first interview potential

property managers before

buying homes. While it’s possible

to find property managers

willing to manage single-family

homes or duplexes, the financial

resource Bankrate.com notes

that many property managers

prefer to manage large apartment

complexes instead. Managing

properties is hard work,

and without skilled property

managers on their side, real estate

investors may become overwhelmed

by the responsibilities

of taking care of their real estate

investments while simultaneously

trying to maintain their own

residences. Before buying investment

properties, prospective real

estate investors should interview

various local property managers

or property management firms,

inquiring about their fees and

what is included in those fees. If

the cost of hiring property managers

drastically cuts into the

profits investors hoped to make

off their investment properties,

they might be better off looking

to invest their money in areas

other than real estate. Prospective

investors can compare the

potential return on investment

after the cost of property managers

has been factored in to the

return they might get from more

traditional investments to determine

if investing in real estate is

a sound financial decision.
