Medway Community Book

Read Looks at Impact of

Technology on Wellness

By J.D. O’Gara

Medway T.H.R.I.V.E.

(Tools: Health, Resiliency, Inclusiveness,

Vitality, Empowerment)

has come up with a new

way to address and promote

wellness not only among parents,

but among all community

members.

“Up until this point,

what our group was

really focused

on was applied

through events or

speakers and presentations.

We’ve

done films and that

sort of thing,” says

Ryan Sherman, Medway

Schools’ Health and Wellness

Director, but the T.H.R.I.V.E.

committee wanted to engage

those parents and others who

prefer not to necessarily participate

in live events.

The result? A community

book read. Members of the

Medway and surrounding

communities are encouraged

to read the first four chapters

and conclusion of IGen:

Why Today’s Super-Connected

Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious,

More Tolerant, Less Happy

– and Completely Unprepared

for Adulthood,

by Jean M.

Twenge, Ph.D.,

sometime from

February 1st to

March 31st. At

the time of Local

Town Pages’ deadline,

two facilitated

community in April were

planned:

• April 2, 2019 at TC Scoops

6:30 start

• April 3, 2019 at Medway

As parents and educators,

we see large shifts in the rise

Millis Fund to Launch

Annual Fund Drive

By J.D. O’Gara

What does it mean to help

your neighbor?

Organizers of the Millis Fund

know it as being there to help your

neighbors in their time of need.

In fact, that’s just why the Millis

Fund was created. The small nonprofit

has helped over 400 families

out of critical financial crises, due

to such issues as illness, accidents,

and family issues, since it was

begun 25 years ago, says Brooks

Corl, who is entering his 19th year

as treasurer for the organization.

Established in 1994, the Millis

Fund was created by volunteers

from four houses of worship in

Millis –St. Thomas the Apostle

Parish, Ael Chunon Congregation,

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

(which is now closed) and the

Church of Christ, Congregational.

The fund is supported through

private donations to provide

emergency financial aid to Millis

residents, for such items as rent,

utilities, medical costs, fuel, clothing

and other emergency needs.

“The Millis Fund helps Millis

families with financial emergencies

- usually arising from

something unexpected and shortterm,”

says Corl.” It’s everything;

it’s rent, it’s medical, it’s utilities –

when utilities become futilities.”

Corl adds that many events can

contribute to a sudden emergency

need.

“It’s not hard for an illness,

an accident, or some other sort

of financial emergency or family

problem, things that are generally

very much unforeseeable, to tip

the scales,” he says.

Corl points out that some

founding principles of the Millis

Fund are complete confidentiality

for the family needing help,

that the fund pays the creditor

owed, that it does not help any

family more than once per year,

(and rarely would it support any

one family more than three times

New Tuition-Free Full-Day

Kindergarten Program a

Success at Medway Schools

Superintendent Armand

Pires is pleased to announce

that the Medway Public School

District’s newly implemented

tuition-free full-day kindergarten

program has been a success

so far this school year.

Prior to offering full-day kindergarten

tuition-free - which

began in the fall - parents who

wanted their children to attend

classes for the full-day had to

pay a tuition of $2,500. Halfday

kindergarten was offered at

no cost under the old system.

All students now attend the

full-day program and the halfday

program has been dissolved.

There are currently 147 students

enrolled in kindergarten this

school year.

“We wanted to remove that

barrier to make sure that all students

receive the same education

and class time as their peers,”

Superintendent Pires said. “Historically,

we’ve had about 85 percent

of the students enrolled in

the full-day K program. Meaning

that all but a small amount

of parents were electing to pay

to have their child in kindergarten

for the whole day. We believe

that all students should have

the ability to attend the full-day

program while taking away the

financial burden from parents.”

In March last year, the Medway

Board of Selectmen approved

allocating an additional

$500,000 into the school district’s

budget to pay for the cost

of offering tuition-free kindergarten.

The funds were made

available by an increase in the

Exelon power plant’s paymentin-lieu-of-taxes

(PILOT) agreement

with the town.

Superintendent Pires said that

the new program is here to stay

and the cost will be built into the

district’s operating budget in future

years.

“We’ve gotten tremendous

feedback from parents and

teachers who are happy about

the change in the program,”

Superintendent Pires said. “For

the district, this was about more

than just dollars and cents. This

was about building equity in our

education system. We as educators

truly want all of our students

to be on even footing with their

classmates from the get go. Now,

all of our kindergartners are

starting in the same place and

learning at the same pace.”

A portion of the $500,000

added to the district budget went

toward ensuring that staffing and

material levels were adequate to

meet the needs of all kindergarten

students throughout the day.

Church of Christ to Hold

overall,) and that The Millis

Fund is designed to relieve temporary

financial emergencies

only, not chronic needs.

The nine members of the

Board of Directors meet about

four or five times a year to plan

the fund drive, create the materials

and review the applications.

The annual mailing is

also donated, so just about all of

the funds donated to The Millis

Fund benefit Millis residents.

Board members take care to personally

contact each applicant.

”The average need has continued

to rise a bit year to year.

Living in general has gotten

more expensive, even for a small

town like Millis,” says Corl.

This month, the Millis Fund

holds its annual drive throughout

Millis, traditionally centering

John’s

family owned and operated for 45 years

around the NFL’s Super Bowl

Sunday – this year on February

3rd. Contributions are welcomed

at any time, however.

(Originally, a soup bowl was literally

passed through places of

worship to gather contributions

for the fund.)

Millis residents can apply for

assistance with a simple, onepage

application, up to once

a year. These are available at

the Millis Senior Center or the

Church of Christ (Congregational)

at 142 Exchange St., says

Corl, neither of which is affiliated

with the organization.

If you would like to help your

fellow residents in need, you can

send your donation to:

The Millis Fund, 142 Exchange

Street, Millis, MA 02054.

The fund is a 501 (c3) organization

of thanks, which could serve as

a receipt.

You can borrow a copy of IGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected

Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy –

and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood, by Jean M. Twenge,

Ph.D at the following locations in Medway.*

feeling anxious or isolated in a

way that no other generation

has been exposed to,” says Sherman,

who points to the fact that

Medway has seen a rise in adolescent

mental health concerns

over the last ten years, including

a 48% increase in high school

students who felt “very” stressed

over the past 30 days. This rise in

student stress has correlated with

a steady increase in the percentage

of Medway middle and high

school students who spend three

or more hours online during an

average school day. Despite this

increase in childhood mental

health concerns a lack of understanding

regarding the connection

between screen time and

adolescent mental health issues

still exists as 63% of parents of

Medway High School students

do not have household rules

around social media use.

The book discussions will be

facilitated by parent volunteers.

Kirsten DeSorbo, a parent in

Medway, is one of those volunteers.

“I feel so lucky to live in a

community that is addressing

these issues of parenting, how to

connect more with your children

how to really be a better parent.

For me personally, I’m always

striving to be good at this job of

parenting - I’m constantly learning

and questioning myself am I

doing right by my children,” says

DeSorbo, who is listening to the

book on Audible right now. “I

have heard of the concern that

all of this technology is having

an effect on the way our children

operate in this world. You walk

into any restaurant now and they

have 20 TV’s gong. How do we

work well in this framework of

constantly digitized culture?”

The book chosen addresses

this very topic.

IGen, says Sherman, “puts a

frame around the kind of issues

we’re dealing with in ways many

of us haven’t thought of. When

you look at generations, Baby

Boomers, Gen X, Millennials –

there’s a sub-category of millennials

people born from 1994 on

(the author) labels ‘IGen.’

Basically, they’ve lived their

whole lives with Internet access,

grew up with cell phones more

than any other generation. She

looked at how this has affected

this sub generation, how they interact

socially, their mental health

and how technology has affected

both of those things.”

Ryan says the book is backed

up with data and shows how

some teen issues, such as drinking

and teen pregnancy, have

gone down.

“(The author) does a good

job illustrating how these kinds

of shifts not only relate to technology,

but things that have happened

in this generation, 9/11

and a shift in parenting that led

them to grow up much slower

and more protected. They’re

staying home more, not learning

to drive as early, are more likely

to stay home and watch Netflix

with their parents than interact

socially. We have much more

fears for our children than our

parents did for us,” says Sherman.

Sherman says the T.H.R.I.V.E.

committee hopes the community

book read might encourage “informal

discussions while you’re

standing at the sidelines of that

basketball or soccer game, or

outside your child’s musical. ‘Hey,

did you read this book?’ Maybe

discussion could take place outside

the event,” he says.

Medway Public Library

*These locations were

confirmed at Local Town

Pages’ deadline. Check the

Medway T.H.R.I.V.E. Facebook

page for additional participating

locations.

Books will be available to borrow

at various locations around

Medway.

“We have several businesses

in Medway that have agreed to

let us put up a description of the

book read and have the book at

their businesses,” says Sherman.

The books were purchased with

funding from a grant from the

Medway Foundation for Education.

People can borrow the

book and even highlight what

they find important for the next

readers when they bring the

book back. “Hopefully, each

copy gets read three or four

times,” says Sherman.

The event, he says, is not just

for parents and not just for Medway

residents, but for anyone interested.

Are You from Millis?

Can You Help Solve a Mystery?

“In June 1993, my husband’s

grandmother went to her sister’s

burial in Millis. Sometime later I

was given a small photo album of

pictures taken at the burial and

of course, none of the pictures

were labeled …

I would like to know who the

woman is in (the first picture).

She is also in a group in (the second

picture), sitting on the right

behind and beside a younger

woman. The only woman I

know in (the second picture) is

Edna Mae (Smith) Congdon who

is sitting in the center. She grew

up in Millis, and I am hoping

that the other women are from

Millis Residents Look to Help

Sometimes we all need a hand

-- a ride, a cooked meal, a hand in

chores, something to help get us

through those pesky bumps in the

road. Following a recent conversation

about how we might help

furloughed government workers

in our town, begun by Danielle

Simoneau Wainwright, a number

of Millis residents have begun

exploring the possibility of beginning

a Millis Neighbor Brigade.

The group held meeting’s on

January 17th and 29th and are

planning another meeting in

February. Visit the “Millis Neighbor

Brigade” page on Facebook

to learn about upcoming events

and to join in the conversation

of neighbors banding together

to help other neighbors through

a crisis.

Say hello

to highlights

time to a critical event at a school

and addresses the communication

barrier which exists during

active shooting situations.

The software application

empowers school staff with

the means to launch an alert

in 12-seconds or less from their

desktop or mobile device, rather

than minutes, with the current

911 system. The alert will be sent

directly to the dispatch center,

police cruisers and cell phones of

officers with specific information,

including the room of origin.

Additionally, it opens a two-way

chat dialogue, in real-time, allowing

staff to communicate details

of the threat to first responders.

Moreover, first responders are

provided access to Floor Plans,

IP-based camera feeds and other

emergency detailed information

to help them plan the best course

of action.

The product’s presence spans

the Commonwealth, exceeding

60 communities and maintains a

presence nationally in 13 states,

including New Hampshire and,

most notably, the New Hampshire

State Police. Several communities

in the metro-Boston

area have also signed up, including

most recently Arlington. To

date, the city of Worcester has

deployed the technology in most

of its public schools, with the

intentions of adding more next

year. IN FORCE911 has already

been featured on news outlets

such as WBZ Boston, 7 News

Boston, Fox 25 Boston, Boston

Herald Radio, ABC Portland

Maine, Delmarva Now, Western

Mass News, South Coast Today,

as well as other local news outlets

in Maine and Virginia.

one-of-a-kind technology works

to significantly aid in the school

shooting epidemic this country is

increasingly experiencing. There

is a need to be preemptive and

proactive in our approach to

school safety.

“We recognize the need to

law enforcement can dramatically

shorten the duration of the

Through implementing this

school safety software in their

public school district and police

hopes to empower its school

faculty and students while working

to save lives during an act of

violence. After all, time equals

lives, and every second counts

during an emergency situation.

February 28- March 3, 2019

The School of the Arts at

Dean College will perform Our

Town, beginning Thursday, February

28 through Sunday, March

3, 2019.

Eighty years after the first performances

of Thornton Wilder’s

Our Town, the play remains one

of the most beloved and performed

theatrical works of the

last century. The well-known

story of life, love, and death still



appeals to audiences of all ages

and cultures. Wilder believed

that that our true lives are lived in

the imagination and the memory

and although today’s society is

radically different, his minimalist

play has remained relevant

through its ability to capture “the

universal experience of being

alive.”

The Dean College production

of Our Town will take place in the

Main Stage in the Campus Center

at Dean College, 109 West

Central Street, Franklin at 7:30

p.m. Thursday – Saturday and

2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

General admission is $22, Seniors

$12 and Children $7.

Time for Cataract Surgery? Ask the Smart Questions

By: Roger M. Kaldawy, M.D.

Milford Franklin Eye Center

Cataract surgery is by far

the most common surgery performed

in the United States.

With advanced technology and

if you choose an experienced

and highly skilled surgeon, modern

cataract surgery should be

a rather quick outpatient and a

minimal risk procedure. If you

are considering cataract surgery,

your expectations should not

only be to improve your vision,

reduce glare at night, see brighter

and more vivid colors and improve

your day to day activities,

but you should also be given an

opportunity to reduce your dependence

on glasses or contacts

and in many cases eliminate this

need. Nowadays, many choices

exist on where to have the surgery

and by whom. Here are the

specific questions to ask when

you are trying to select the ideal

surgical centers, resources, experience,

skills and outcomes as

you make the critical decision of

who will perform your cataract

surgery.

1. Why are you referring me

to this surgeon? Many eye

care providers and more specifically

optometrists will want

you to travel miles or hours

away from home to have

your surgery with a particular

surgeon of their choice. Of

course, they may claim that

the surgeon they are sending

you to is the best or the equipment

used is the best. You

may wonder why they are

doing this when you have an

experienced surgeon within

minutes from where you live

and when this top-notch surgeon

with excellent nationwide

reputation will perform

your surgery in a state-of-theart

surgery center in the same

area where you live. In fact,

this center has better equipment

that may not even exist

in the center your optometrist

wants you to go to. Beware referral

bias: Ask this provider

if there is a business relationship

linking him/ her as an

optometrist with the surgeon

and more specifically if that

provider will benefit from a

financial agreement linked to

his referral to that far away

surgeon he/ she wants you to

go to.

2. What type of anesthesia am

I going to get? With modern

cataract surgery, most surgeries

should be completed

under topical anesthesia and

local sedation. Local sedation

means that the anesthesiologist

will give you minimal

sedation, allowing you to

recover your activities after

surgery almost immediately

with little or no health risk.

Topical anesthesia means

that the surgery eye becomes

numb with drops. No need

for injections or shots around

or behind your eye. No shots

will reduce the risk of bleeding

and serious complications

from the shots. Also, shots require

deeper anesthesia, and

this can leave you at risk from

the same. Ask your referring

optometrist about the techniques

of the surgeon he/ she

wants to send you to and how

your procedure will be performed.

If or not a shot will

be done around or behind

your eye and who will do it

should be discussed with you

before the procedure and you

should be able to consent to

it, and not just assume that is

part of the surgery.

3. What are the risks? One of

the most dreaded risks of

cataract surgery is accidental

damage to the posterior

capsule, which is the back

wall of the bag holding your

lens. The best practices have

a rupture rate of 2 to 4 per

thousand cases. The source

of this information should

be credible, and ideally made

available by an independent

review committee in a surgery

center. Ask your referring

optometrist about his/

her surgeon of choice complication

rate and how this is

monitored. Does the surgeon

have an independent review

committee in his/ her center

to validate this rate?

4. What is the rate of infections

in your center? Another

potentially devastating

risk of cataract surgery is an

infection inside the eye called

“endophthalmitis”. Ask your

referring optometrist about

his/her surgeon of choice

percentage of patients getting

this infection in the center

they send you to for your

operation. The source of this

information, again, should

be credible, and ideally made

available by an independent

Life Needs Flexibility

review committee inside the

surgery center.

5. Where will the surgery be

performed? Different centers

have different equipment

and resources. For instance,

Massachusetts has only few

centers offering bladeless cataract

surgery. Bladeless laser

assisted surgery should be an

option if you want to reduce

dependence on glasses and

treat low grades of astigmatism

at the same time as your

cataract surgery. This technology

can also soften the cataract

if it is dense and thick,

allowing a safer and better

outcome as it is the case in

a specific eye disease called

Fuch’s dystrophy. Ask your referring

optometrist about his/

her surgeon of choice ability

to offer this technology.

6. What type of advanced technology

is available at the

center? A state-of-the-art surgery

center should offer better

technology. For instance, a

technology called ORA can

allow the surgeon to adjust

the power of the lens implant

placed in the eye while you

are having the surgery. This is

critical if you had LASIK before.

This technology has the

added benefit to reduce errors

in the implant power calculations

and improve chances of

reducing your need for glasses

after surgery. Ask your referring

optometrist about his/

her surgeon of choice ability

to offer this technology and if

it is available in his/ her center.

7. What type of implant am I

going to get? Different lens

implants can be used during

cataract surgery with different

materials, quality and ability

to reduce your need for

glasses. A lower cost does not

always translate into savings

as cost depends not only on

the implant used, but also the

technology used to measure

your eye before the surgery.

Ask your referring optometrist

about his/her surgeon choice

of implants he/ she uses and

what technology is used to accurately

measure your eye.

8. Will my need to wear glasses

be reduced? Cataract surgery

is a wonderful opportunity

to limit or eliminate

your need for glasses. As the

surgeon removes the cataract,

there is an opportunity to replace

the cloudy lens with a

special high tech implant able

to achieve this goal. The new

bladeless laser assisted surgery

offers the opportunity to correct

astigmatism at the same

time as the surgery, allowing

the lens implants to correct

for distance, near and everything

in between. This is now

even easier to achieve with the

new state-of-the-art Symfony

Toric implants. Ask your referring

optometrist about his/

her surgeon of choice ability

to access those implants,

achieve this goal and how

often is this achieved.

9. Will I have stitches? It is

• Preventive and

restorative treatment

• Conscious Sedation/Laughing

Gas for children and adults

• Orthodontics – Braces and

Invisalign

• Laser Dentistry (gum therapy,

tongue ties, & Frenctomies)

Tri-County Regional Awarded

$123,115 in Mass. Skills Capital Grant

Tri-County Regional Vocational

Technical High School is

pleased to announce it has been

awarded $123,115 from the

2019 Massachusetts Skills Capital

Grant to expand its Metal

Fabrication program. The grant

will allow integration opportunities

between the Engineering and

Metal Fabrication career programs.

The Skills Capital Grant Program

awards grants to support

vocational/technical training, upgrades

and expansion of career

technical education, and training

of high-quality career pathway

programs that are aligned with

regional economic and workforce

development priorities for

in-demand industries.

Tri-County was among 31

educational institutions in Massachusetts

that were recently

awarded workforce skills capital

grants enabling the schools to

acquire the newest technologies

to educate students and expand

programs. Skills Capital Grants,

which are administered through

Gov. Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn

Polito’s office, are designed to

help high schools, colleges and

other educational institutions

invest in the most up-to-date

training equipment to give their

students an advantage when they

continue in their chosen field

or particular area of study. The

awards cover a broad range of

fields, from construction and engineering

to healthcare and hospitality.

Tri-County will boost enrollment

capacity in its Metal Fabrication

program and enhance

hands-on technical instruction to

provide students with the knowledge

needed for manufacturing

jobs in the region. Funding will

upgrade the training facilities

with industry-standard equipment

and give students access to

a power roll, an ironworker, an

industrial sanding belt, and two

virtual welders. The program will

support adult students enrolled in

evening training courses, offered

in collaboration with the region’s

MassHire board.

“Skills Capital Grants impact

the education of thousands of

young people across the Commonwealth

and give them new

opportunities and skills for a successful

future,” Baker said. “We

are proud of the 10,000 new seats

that have been added to these

programs across Massachusetts

and we look forward to continuing

our work with schools and

teachers to give more students

the experience and knowledge

that employers demand.”

“The funding we have received

from this Skills Capital

Grant will be vital to expanding

our Metal Fabrication program

and will give more students the

experience and skill set that employers

demand,” said Superintendent

Stephen Dockray. “We

are grateful and honored to have

been awarded this grant by the

Baker-Polito administration and

are looking forward to seeing our

students graduate with the competitive

edge needed to compete

for exciting career opportunities.”

Millis’ Clark Aiming for State Crown in Girls’ Basketball

By KEN HAMWEY,

Staff Sports Writer

Abby Clark came close on two

occasions to being part of a State

championship basketball team.

Now, she’s eager to return to the

finals and finish the job.

The Millis High senior captain,

who led the Mohawks’ in

scoring and rebounding last year,

has set some lofty goals for her

final season and one of them is to

win the Division 3 State crown.

“First, we want to try to win

the Tri Valley League Small Division

title,’’ Clark said. “Then we

want to qualify for the tourney

and win the State playoffs. The

goals are realistic, even though

we’re a young team. We’ve got

talent, and if we play solid defense

and compete with a sense of

urgency, we can go all the way.’’

As a freshman, Clark was

called up to the varsity as the

Mohawks aimed for their third

straight State title. Unfortunately,

Cathedral won the

crown. A year later, in Clark’s

sophomore season, Millis bowed

out again, this time in the State

semifinals to Quaboag. And,

last season, the Mohawks were

eliminated in the first round of

the Sectional playoffs.

So, it’s not surprising that the

17-year-old power forward, who’s

been a TVL all-star in basketball

and volleyball, would like to turn

her past disappointments into a

more euphoric ending. Winning

two Sectional hoop championships

isn’t exactly chopped liver,

but when those two seasons concluded

with losses in the States, it

left Clark feeling empty.

“I wish we could have persevered

a bit harder in the State

semifinals my sophomore season,’’

she said. “We were a bit nervous,

but if we pushed ourselves

to the limit, maybe we could have

prevailed. But, this is a new season

and we can aim high.’’

Coach Dave Fallon is bullish

on his 5-foot-11 star, who

averaged 11 points and nine rebounds

a game last year. This

season she’s averaging 13 points,

8 rebounds and 3 steals. “Abby

has a great work ethic, she’s athletic,

can shoot outside and also

handle the ball,’’ he emphasized.

“She’s a threat down low because

of her size, and she can shoot

outside. A tri-captain, she leads

by example.’’

Clark is relying on a variety of

strengths to elevate Millis, which

has a 9-0 record so far. She’s mentally

tough, has excellent court

awareness, communicates well,

can shoot threes and she plays

strong defense. “I can improve my

quickness,’’ she noted. “My footwork

and hands can be faster.’’

Aggressive under the basket

when she’s battling for position,

Clark is more deliberate when

shooting.

Her best game was against

Douglas in the Sectional championship

game when she was a

sophomore. “I had a career high

of 21 points,’’ she recalled. “It

was an amazing experience and

playing at Worcester Polytech’s

arena made it all the more enjoyable.

My top thrill in basketball

was being named a captain. The

team has great chemistry, and

I’m excited to have the chance to

provide leadership and support

to a great group of talented players.

We had a difficult season last

year, particularly in the playoffs,

in our first season ever in Division

3. This year, we’re ready to

tackle Division 3.

Clark has high praise for Millis

other senior captains — shooting

guard Riley Donovan and

forward Meg Cullen. “Riley has

great court vision, and she’s strong

on offense,’’ Clark said. “A quality

leader, she’s very positive. Meg is

aggressive at the basket, and she’s

a strong rebounder. An effective

defensive player, she averages

close to four steals a game.’’

Clark’s style as a captain is “to

lead by example but be vocal in

a supportive way.’’ She’s often

vocal about her coach, lauding

his ability to motivate. “Coach

Fallon pushes us to our limit and

gets up prepared,’’ she said. “His

practices are intense, and he’s

very effective in challenging us.’’

An honor-roll student, Clark

is planning to major in nursing

or psychology in college. She’s

considering UMass-Amherst and

possibly Rhode Island College, a

Division 3 school. “If I choose

Rhode Island College, I’d consider

playing both volleyball and

basketball there.’’

Clark not only was a TVL

all-star in volleyball, but she also

was chosen as one of 16 players

for the Massachusetts All-State

Team last fall. That selection was

made by the Mass. Volleyball

Coaches Association.

Millis Students at Home on Medway-

Ashland Girls’ Hockey Team

By Christopher Tremblay,

Staff Sports Writer

For the past ten years, the

Medway-Ashland coop has given

girls the chance to play ice hockey

for a high school. Some five years

ago, Millis joined under the Medway-Ashland

banner, so their girls

could also continue to play a sport

they had a passion for. This year,

two girls Emma Rice and Marina

Yasuna, are skating for the Medway-Ashland

team.

Both athletes have shown

Coach Karl Infanger that they

belong on the team and can contribute

to the team’s success. Rice

is a junior third line center, while

BASKETBALL

continued from page 20

A superb middle hitter,

Clark’s best game was a fiveset

triumph over Holliston

last fall when she had 18 kills.

“My top thrill, however, was

when we beat Westwood and

Ashland back-to-back,’’ Clark

said. “The win over Westwood

was our first over them in 10

years, and the victory over

Ashland was our first against

them in seven years.’’

Whichever sport Clark’s

playing, her competitive philosophy

never changes. She

wants to win, improve daily

and enjoy the experiences that

athletics offer. “I’ve learned

some great life lessons in

sports,’’ she said. “Athletics

teach teamwork, time management,

how to overcome adversity,

how to be responsible, and

how to improve one’s leadership

ability.’’

A fan of Jason Tatum of the

Celtics because “he competes

hard and takes responsibility,’’

Clark is focusing intensely on

how the Mohawks finish the

season. She’s hoping they’re

at a high-compete mode and

peaking at the right time.

Those two elements could

make the difference and fulfill

Abby Clark’s ultimate goal

— to finally capture a State

championship.

Yasuna is a senior blue liner.

“Emma knows that she is on

the third line, but wants to move

up. She’s a hard working individual

and is making the adjustments

that we need her to make

as center and has a high hockey

IQ,” Infanger said. “Marina

plays a tenacious defense and has

drastically improved in her making

the right decisions while on

the ice. She knows what she has

to work on and has done so every

drill she takes part in.”

Both girls have been playing

the sport for some time; Yasuna

picked up the sport while at Dover-Sherborn

before transferring

to Millis, and Rice has been playing

for about seven years since

her friend got her interested.

“A friend of mine from elementary

school in Norfolk took

me to the ice rink to take part in

a ‘learn to play hockey’ program.

I fell in love with the sport,” Rice

Said. “Immediately joined the

KP/Walpole club team as a center,

because I wanted to play a

forward position so that I could

skate a lot and score.”

Yasuna also plays for a club

team, the Natick Comets, where

she has been one of the team’s

forwards for the past three years

before she was asked to help them

out on defense. She liked the position

so much that she continued

to play it in high school.

Prior to her playing hockey,

Yasuna didn’t have a sport to

participate in during the winter

season. She started looking for

something to keep busy during

the winter time frame and came

upon hockey. She borrowed

some equipment to try out for

the team and found it to her

liking and has been playing the

sport since. Although she had

Millis students Emma Rice and Marina Yasuna have found the Medway-

Ashland girls’ hockey team to be a welcoming group, despite the

challenge of traveling to practice in Marlboro.

played forward, she likes defense

much better.

“As a soccer defender you

get to see the entire field, it’s the

same with hockey,” Yasuna said.

“I get to watch everything from

the backline and see things developing,

it gives me more control

of the game.”

Both girls found that the welcoming

that they received from

their new teammates was great,

and that they had their backs,

Rice also noted that her new

teammates would give constructive

criticism to help them with

their game.

The only downfall to being

members on the Medway-Ashland

girl’s hockey team is the

practicing. The team has ice time

in Marlboro at the New England

Sports Club, usually later in the

evening, and with only a small

bus, Medway can only bring

their own athletes. The Millis

girls need to carpool.

“The ride situation is very

tough,” Rice said. “Living in

Norfolk and getting to Marlboro

late at night is too much.”

Yasuna agreed.

“The hard part about playing

for Medway-Ashland is getting

to and from practices,” she said.

“The other girls have the Mustang

mini bus or one another

to car pool with; we’ve only got

each other.”

Prior to this year, Rive had

been sitting on the bench for

most of the game seeing some ice

time near the end of the game.

This year, as the team’s third line

center she was able to notch her

first varsity goal against Norwood.

Trailing 2-1 late in the

game Rice tallied her first goal at

an opportune time giving Medway-Ashland

a tie.

Register O’Donnell Reports on 2018 Norfolk County

Real Estate Activity

While the eastern Massachusetts

economy remained strong

during 2018, the Norfolk County

real estate market continued to

experience mixed results when it

came to sales and mortgage lending

activity.

Register of Deeds William P.

O’Donnell noted, “A yearly review

of 2018 real estate activity

in Norfolk County showed a total

of 18,124 residential and commercial

real estate sales transactions.

This represented a 2%

decrease from 2017. However,

the volume of residential and

commercial total dollar sales increased

by 19% last year. The average

sales, again both residential

and commercial, was $841,414,

an increase of 22% from the previous

year.”

The Register noted that there

was an 8% reduction in the number

of land documents recorded

at the Registry in 2018 with a

total of 141,159 compared to

152,927 in 2017. “A key factor

in the overall decrease in land

documents recorded,” noted

O’Donnell, “stemmed from the

reduced number of mortgages

filed at the Registry. A total of

24,503 mortgages were recorded

in 2018, representing an 11%

decrease from 2017. Also, total

mortgage financing closed at

$17.7 billion, a 6% decrease from

the previous year.”

In 2018 on the consumer

front, Norfolk County residents

continued to avail themselves

of the protections provided by

the Homestead Act. A total

of 12,102 Homesteads were

recorded, resulting in a 4%

decrease from 2017. A Homestead

provides limited protection

against the forced sale of an

individual’s primary residence

to satisfy unsecured debt up to

$500,000.

Foreclosure activity saw some

improving signs. A total of 221

foreclosure deeds were filed in

Norfolk County during 2018

compared to 268 in the previous

year, an 18% decrease. Additionally,

Notice to Foreclose

Mortgage, the first step in the

foreclosure process, also decreased

by 10.9% during the

same time period.

To help those experiencing

challenges paying their mortgage,

the Registry continues to

work in partnership with Quincy

Community Action Programs,

(617) 479-8181 x376, and NeighborWorks

Southern Mass, (508)

587-0950. These organizations

are equipped to help homeowners

who have received a Notice to

Foreclose Mortgage document.

A third option is to contact the

Massachusetts Attorney General’s

Consumer Advocacy and

Response Division (CARD) at

(617) 727-8400.

Client Testimonial to Robin & Mark Spangenberg:

“Robin and Mark are truly the perfect team when it comes to buying an selling real estate in Millis! They helped us from start to

finish with selling our home and buying a new one (at the same time!). When we hit some bumps in the road they were there by

our side to help ease our nerves and get us through the process. They were available to talk night and day and really attended

to every detail. Their knowledge of the area and real estate in general combined with their dedication and incredible work ethic

make them an impossible team to beat.” – A. Stub itS, MilliS
