Medway Community

Farm to Celebrate

10 th Anniversary

Newest Initiatives Include Hoedown

Fundraiser & Food Pantry Program

By J.D. O’Gara

Medway Community Farm

is approaching its 10-year mark,

and with that milestone, as things

age, “we are in dire need for

some capital improvement,” says

volunteer Tina Wright.

What better way to raise some

funds than a party? Get ready

for some fun to benefit Medway

Community Farm! A fundraiser

Hoedown will take place at the

Thayer House on Saturday, November

9, 2019, from 7 p.m. until

11 p.m.

“There will be music, some

line dancing, a silent auction, and

an overall fun time!” says Tina

Wright, volunteer for the farm.

She adds that music will include

country favorites but also 70’s,

80’s and 90’s dance tunes by Al

Kennedy of KTK Sound, so the

night will include something for

everyone.

The 21+ event will also feature

light appetizers from locally

grown food from the farm. Proceeds

from the sale of tickets,

which will be $35, will help pay

for a new water pump for irrigating

the fields, a washing station,

greenhouses, as well as a new

tractor.

“We have two vintage tractors

to weed the rows, now,” says

Wright, “probably from 1955.”

The 10 th anniversary of the

Medway Community Farm

comes with nearly a complete

changeover of board leadership.

“There are a lot of new mem-

to students for the first time on

Tuesday, September 4. This was

a day of celebration but also a

day to reflect upon the gratitude

felt towards the citizenry of Millis

for their support in making

this dream happen for the CFB

school community.

Ground breaking for the new

building was held in December

2017, and construction commenced

soon after. The CFB

school community and the town

watched with interest as the

site was cleared and preparations

made to begin pouring the

building foundation. Over the

winter and into the spring, we

watched the skeletal framework

of the building take shape and

gradually acquire an internal

framework for walls and other

structures. When students and

staff returned at the start of the

2018-2019 school year, the shape

of the building was in place, and

excitement was electric when we

all returned from Thanksgiving

break to find walls completed

and window frames in place!

Over the winter and into the

spring construction continued

internally, and CFB teachers

and staff were given a “sneak

preview” escorted tour by the

project team Compass Management

and Agostini-Bacon Construction.

The school was now

feeling less conceptual and more

real, and Diane Jurmain of the

Elementary School Building

Committee shared out information

about building progress to

the community on Facebook. By

the time school ended in June,

classrooms were packed to move

and events were held to honor

the memory of the 1954 Clyde

F. Brown school, including the

creation of a 2019 time capsule

interred within the new building

and open house “farewell” tours

at the old building.

Over the summer, prior to

the start of school, CFB held

“Find Your Way Days,” with

student leaders assisting students

and families as they completed a

scavenger hunt of places to find

around the new school. This

was helpful to the school community

as school opened and

students and families adjusted to

new routines and procedures. A

major highlight of the opening

include an official ribbon cutting

ceremony, held on September 7,

with the citizens of Millis and invited

to attend and speakers Jack

McCarthy (Deputy CEO/Ex-

Elementary School Building

Committee), Superintendent of

School Nancy Gustafson, and

Principal Jason Phelps participating.

Clyde F. Brown Student

Leaders, who also served as tour

guides later, were on hand to provide

a musical selection as they

sang the unofficial school song

“Sweet Clyde F. Brown.”

As the new school year gets

underway, teachers and staff

reflect upon the curriculum and

programming planning that we

have done to prepare us for educating

children in a state-of-the

art, 21 st Century school. In the

younger grades, students will

find more opportunites to personalize

their learning through

adaptive learning platforms, accessed

by Chromebooks, as well

FSPA Celebrates 35th Anniversary

In 1985, lifetime Franklin resident

Raye Lynn Mercer, director,

pianist, and educator, departed

from her private studio of 35

piano students with a vision and

opened the doors of the Franklin

School for the Performing

Arts (FSPA) at 38 Main Street

in Franklin. Offering the region

a one-of-a-kind performing arts

education program that includes

music, dance, and drama under

one roof, FSPA Celebrates its

35th Anniversary Season this

year.

The anniversary celebrations

began with a back-to-school toast

at 38 Main Street for faculty and

FSPA families past and present.

The year’s festivities will include

an anniversary alumni concert

and celebration at THE BLACK

BOX over Thanksgiving weekend,

a special February cabaret

featuring current students,

faculty, alumni, and Broadway

friends of FSPA at one of NYC’s

most prestigious cabaret venues,

the 35th Spring Concert in May,

and more.

Through the years, FSPA has

cultivated relationships with performers

and guest teachers who

are currently dominating their

artistic fields. These artists are

able to mentor FSPA students

through the school’s annual NYC

master class weekend as well as

special workshops held at the

school. “I wish I had a Franklin

School for the Performing Arts in

my life when I was growing up,”

says Tony Award winner Beth

Franklin School for the

Performing Arts Director Raye

Lynn Mercer

Leavel. “It’s invaluable.”

FSPA’s alumni have a long

track record of success. Students

have gone on to appear on Broadway,

in national tours, regional

theater, professional ballet companies,

TV, feature film, opera,

cruise ships, concert dance, and

more. Alum Dan Gleason, currently

in Wicked on Broadway,

says of his FSPA beginnings, “ I

owe a lot of my consistent vocal

health and technique to my years

at FSPA. Healthy singing habits

were ingrained in my body and

now are second nature. FSPA set

me up for success in life and I am

so thankful for my years of training

in my hometown.”

FSPA founder Raye Lynn

Mercer believes that an education

in the performing arts,

whether or not pursued for a professional

career, provides young

people with lasting life skills.

Students of the arts develop personal

attributes including focus,

discipline, self-esteem, and an

understanding of teamwork. Superior

communication and social

skills become attributes of students

who pursue music, dance,

and drama. Conservatory and

career bound students, as well as

those who attend classes for fun,

gain a sense of accomplishment

and the confidence they need to

succeed in all endeavors. FSPA

violin instructor Irina Fainkichen

says of the school’s environment,

“I see FSPA as a second home for

many students. Besides all the opportunities

this school provides,

and believe me, there are so

many, I love that everybody has

so much fun together. We are like

p.m. The community is invited

to tour the facilities, observe

drama, whether for recreational

enjoyment or serious study.

a curriculum coordinator, an assistant

principal, and an elementary

school principal in Douglas,

Mass. and Webster, Mass. prior

to coming to Millis. He has been

principal at Clyde Brown for the

past eight years, and has greatly

enjoyed the “small town, big family”

relationships formed in Millis,

especially with the students, their

families and staff. He is grateful to

the town of Millis, Millis Public

Schools, and the Clyde F. Brown

School community for their partnership.

Millis Select Board Grants Millis Plastic

Reduction Initiative a Warrant Article

By J.D. O’Gara

Members of the Millis Plastic

Reduction Initiative (MPRI)

presented their environmentally-friendly

case for a change

to Millis bylaws to the Millis

Select Board on Monday, September

16 th . The citizens’ group

hopes to reduce the use of plastics

and plastic waste in town by

becoming the 123 rd municipality

in Massachusetts to ban thinfilmed,

single-use plastic bags at

checkout at retail locations in

town.

Presenting members of the

group noted that:

• the town of Millis uses an

estimated 4.3 million plastic

bags a year

• plastic bags are not biodegradable

and only with the

presence of light take 200 to

1,000 years to break down

in the environment

• plastic breaks up into tiny

particles that infiltrate every

step in the food chain

• eliminating this waste will

aid the town’s effort to

create a cleaner recycling

stream, possibly saving

money

The town’s Select Board

voted unanimously to place

MPRI’s proposed bylaw as an

article on the November 4 town

meeting warrant. The Millis Select

Board explained that it was

neither recommending nor opposing

the actual measure, but

allowing the article to move forward.

The group will present its

case to the Millis Finance Committee

on October 2 nd .

In April, the Millis Plastic

Reduction Initiative showed the

movie Bag It at the Millis Public

Library and plans to show

this film there again on October

29 th , at 2 p.m. For updates,

Dean College Students Participate in Banner

Ceremony at the New England Patriots Home Opener

Close to 200 Dean College

students projected enthusiasm as

they participated in the banner

ceremony at New England Patriots’

home opener at Gillette

Stadium.

The students, composed of

Arts and Entertainment Management,

Business, Communications,

Dance, Sports Broadcasting

and Sport Management majors,

assisted in rolling out a 50-yardlong

banner that would eventually

become a projection screen

with a Patriots highlight reel for

the crowd to enjoy, as the six-time

Super Bowl champions revealed

their latest banner.

This was not a job for the

weak; students were split into

two groups and tasked as a team

to carry two banners that would

eventually become one to the

center of the field … as quick as

lightening. They then assembled

the banner, holding the edges

in place to create a blank canvas

and set the stage for Patriots

legends Drew Bledsoe, Ty Law,

Willie McGinest, Rob Ninkovich

and Rob Gronkowski and the

CEO of the New England Patriots,

Robert Kraft, who each held

a trophy representing the team’s

past Super Bowl victories.

St. Michael’s Celebrates 60 Years

To Celebrate Applefest and Blessing of the

Animals this Month

By J.D. O’Gara

St. Michael’s Episcopal

Church, which has welcomed a

number of congregants from the

former St. Paul’s Church of Millis

(as well as stained glass windows

from the latter), celebrated

its 60 th anniversary on Sunday,

September 29 th , 2019, the Feast

of St. Michael’s and All Angels,

and it’s got more planned for its

anniversary week.

On Saturday, October 5 th ,

St. Michael’s will hold its annual

rain or shine Applefest

Fair on Saturday October 5 th

at 1162 Highland Street, Holliston,

from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The fair will feature a bake sale,

basket raffle, children’s activities

(including face painting, pumpkin

painting, cookie decorating

and a bouncy house (weather

permitting)), homemade jams,

jellies and pickles at a Country

Store, food and beverages from

“Bob’s Grill,” homemade apple

crisp, and an indoor tag sale

from “Aunt Stella’s Attic” with

hundreds of items at spectacular

prices.

The day after Applefest, on

October 6 th , St. Michael’s will

honor St. Francis of Assisi with

its Blessing of the Animals service

at 10 a.m. Folks are invited

to bring their suitably leashed

or caged animal friends to the

service.

“The Blessing of the Animals

is one of the most favorite services

of the entire year,” says St.

Michael’s Reverend Sarah Robbins-Cole.

“It’s a cacophony of

meows and barks and sometimes

chickens and bunnies. I think in

the past there may have been a

goat or two. It’s just a lot of fun.

It’s very noisy, and a lot of fun.”

Robbins-Cole has been pastor

at St. Michael’s for five years.

The church officially began on

Sunday, September 20, 1959,

with the Rt. Rev. Anson Stokes,

Bishop of Massachusetts, conducted

the commissioning service

for the new mission. For

over a year, service would be

held at Holliston Town Hall

by The Rev. George L. Packard,

Priest-in-Charge, before it

moved to a space above Harold

Youngling’s hardware store

on Washington Street, where

Fiske’s now operates. The parishioners

held many fundraisers

to be able to build a church

building on the three acres of

property at 1162 Highland St. in

Holliston, which the diocese had

purchased for $8,000 in 1960.

There, it built a strong congregation.

“St. Michael’s is just filled

with warm and wonderful people.

They’re very welcoming –

that’s what we hear most,” says

Robbins-Cole. “Clergy who fill

in here on a Sunday if I’m away

will ask me if the congregation is

as warm and wonderful as they

seem. It’s filled with lots of interesting

people, and I think a distinctive

feature of the church is

how much they love to help the

community around them.”

Congregants have helped

Habitat for Humanity, have

made lunches for building project

volunteers and for area shelters

and food pantries, and have

gone to Appalachia to help repair

houses with their bi-yearly,

intergenerational Appalachia

Service Project.

Robbins-Cole says the group

is committed to Christian formation,

with a strong Sunday

School program and an opportunity

for adults to learn more

in its Sunday morning forum at

9 a.m. On Tuesdays, the church

features a Bible study, and it

even boasts a book group. Leading

up to Christmas, during Advent,

adults can also take part in

Companions in Christ for more

learning and fellowship, she

says.

“Another distinctive feature

of our church is we have a really

committed choir, with a choir

director and organist who are

really fun to work with and have

really great music to sup our services,”

says Robbins-Cole.

As with any anniversary, says

Robbins-Cole, a time for reflection

arises.

“It’s a reminder to turn where

God is calling us at any particular

time as the culture around us

may change, and it’s an opportunity

to grow on our strengths.

We have a mission statement

which I think stands the test of

time – that we are a Christian

Community whose vision is to

strengthen our relationship with

God and one another, and to

spread God’s love. I think that at

the 60 th anniversary, we will give

thanks for all the ways that we

did that in the past and continue

that mission and understand

that calling in changing circumstances

and context.”

Things, she says, aren’t really

that different from Biblical

times.

“When you study the Bible,

you see the kind of issues that

we’re dealing with and facing

are the same issues going on

M.E.R.I.T. Haunted Hayride October 19th

By J.D. O’Gara

Come dig up a few friends

and drag them over to Tangerini’s

Farm on October 19th

where M.E.R.I.T. (Millis Educational

Resource Initiatives

Team) is brewing up a hairraising

Halloween haunt for its

Annual Haunted Hayride. The

event will take place beginning

at 4:30, with a less creepy adventure

from 4:30-6:30 and the

more devilishly dreadful antics

taking place from 6:30-10 p.m.

Refreshments, such as cookies,

water, hot chocolate and popcorn,

will be available for $1.

Tickets are $10.

“I always like to point out

that spooky is still spooky, so use

your judgment when it comes

to young children,” says Theresa

Mahoney, President of the

M.E.R.I.T. Board of Directors.

According to Mahoney, the

annual affair is generally planned

with a skeleton crew. “We’re always

looking for fresh blood,”

she muses. “We could always

use more volunteers, as with

any nonprofit organization. We

do appreciate the volunteers we

have running the scare stations.

We couldn’t do it without

them.”

This is the biggest fundraiser

of the year for the all-volunteer

organization that funds educational

initiatives in the Millis

Public Schools, although it will

also host a scarecrow decorating

contest at the Millis Middle

School this year, in which classrooms

will take turns creating the

creepy characters, and families

purchase tickets to vote for their

favorites. The tickets later act as

a raffle of sorts, with the winning

family collecting the scarecrow

for their home.

Unlike previous years, the

Haunted Hayride will have an

alternate date, in case of catastrophic

weather.

“Last year we had to cancel it

in the first time ever in the history

of the hayride, because safety

was a concern, which was hard

for us,” says Mahoney. “This

year, for the first time, we do have

a nor’easter date – still rain or

shine—but in case of imminent

death—it’s October 26th.”

Mahoney says the group

hopes to sell 700 tickets to the

Haunted Hayride. Tickets will be

available for sale starting October

first at Roche Bros. and Tangerini’s,

and two ticket sales, on

October 5th and October 12th,

will be held from 10 a.m. until 3

p.m. at the Millis Public Library.

Mahoney would also like to

scare up a few corporate sponsors

both for the event and to

increase fund the group has for

grants. MERIT has given back

to the schools over $300,000

since 1991, welcoming applications

from teachers, administrators

and residents for proposals

that address curriculum-related

learning projects. Projects should

enhance and improve the educational

services of the Millis Public

School system.

Last year, for example, grants

M.E.R.I.T. (Millis Educational

Resource Initiatives Team) will

hold its annual Haunted Hayride

at Tangerini’s Spring Street

Farm on October 19th, rain or

shine. (N’oreaster date: Oct. 26)

M.E.R.I.T.

funded such initiatives as a field

trip to the international WWII

Museum, a Vocational Office

Skills Project for special education,

a research initiative by the MS/

HS librarian, Project Safe Space

by a school adjustment counselor,

STEM projects, a wellness program,

a program on creating a

multi-sensory, multi-movement

classroom, a biome building project

and more. M.E.R.I.T. is currently

accepting grant proposals,

and the grant application can be

found on its website.

MERIT would not be able

to provide these grant awards

without community support.

donations, volunteers, and corporate

sponsors. For more information,

Cataract Surgery: Time to be Panoptimistic!

By Roger M. Kaldawy, M.D.,

Milford Franklin Eye Center

The U.S. Food and Drug

Administration has recently

approved the first cataract intraocular

lens implant that provides

cataract patients with an

extended depth-of-focus, which

helps improve their sharpness

of vision (visual acuity) at near,

intermediate and far distances.

The PanOptix Lens is here, a

masterpiece in design and function

and a real advancement in

cataract surgery implants.

Cataracts are a common eye

condition where the natural lens

becomes clouded, impairing a

patient’s vision. According to the

National Eye Institute, more than

20% of Americans will have cataracts

by the age of 65, and the

prevalence increases with age.

In cataract surgery, the clouded

natural lens is removed and replaced

with an intraocular lens

implant. While intraocular lenses

have been the mainstay of cataract

treatment for many years,

we continue to see advances in

this technology. The PanOptix

Lens implant provides a new option

for patients that may result

in better vision across a broader

range of distances.

Traditional monofocal implants

have been limited to improving

distance vision. With

those traditional implants, only

one distance is corrected, so if

you choose to correct for distance

only, close-up vision is blurry…

and vice versa…The PanOptix

Lens implant improves visual

acuity at close, intermediate and

far ranges and, therefore, will

reduce the need for patients to

wear contact lenses or glasses

after cataract surgery.

At the time of cataract surgery,

you have the opportunity

to enhance your vision with the

PanOptix Lens. Through a tiny

incision, the surgeon removes

your clouded lens. The surgeon

replaces your original lens with

96% Patient satisfaction.

the PanOptix Lens. The PanOptix

Lens enhances your vision for

clear, complete focus. With the

PanOptix Lens, you can seize

every day. Without cataracts.

Without hesitation. Without

holding back.

PanOptix is clinically shown

to deliver an exceptional combination

of near, intermediate,

and distance vision while

reducing the need for glasses

after surgery. PanOptix is one

of the leading presbyopiacorrecting

IOLs in more than

70 countries and is now available

in the US after FDA approval.

In a clinical study, 129

patients were asked about their

experience with the PanOptix

Lens: 99% of people with the

PanOptix Lens would choose

the same lens again. 98% of

people with the PanOptix Lens

would recommend it to family

and friends. PanOptix patients

demonstrated exceptional, uninterrupted

vision. The results

showed high patient satisfaction.

Imagine how you could use

clear, complete vision. Spot a familiar

face, drive a car, watch TV,

see at arm’s length with enhanced

intermediate vision, read a menu,

see the mirror, use a computer,

read a book, take up crafting, use

a cell phone. Do all of those tasks

with no or little dependence on

glasses. The PanOptix Lens is a

once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

that opens up a million more.

The PanOptix lens implant is

also available in four toric models,

which are indicated for the

reduction of residual refractive

astigmatism or imperfections

in the curvature of the

eye. This availability means

that distance, intermediate and

close vision are all corrected

in addition and at the same

time as correcting astigmatism.

Cataract surgery is all about

better precision, more safety

and excellent outcomes. At Milford

Franklin Eye Center, Dr.

Kaldawy is proud to have been

the first surgeon in the area and

among the first in Massachusetts

to offer bladeless laser assisted

cataract surgery and the first surgeon

in the greater Boston area

to implant the new PanOptix

lens implant. We are happy to

bring this technology to the area.

The top five teaching hospitals

in the nation offer bladeless laser

cataract surgery. We offer the

same. We implant high quality

premium lenses only, with correction

for distance, near and everything

in between. Many cases

of astigmatism are no longer a

problem as these implants can

now be offered even if you have

astigmatism. Our percentage of

posterior capsule complications

and infections is one of the lowest

in the nation. No more need

to travel hours for your cataract

surgery! We operate in a state-ofthe-art

surgery center in Milford

offering bladeless laser cataract

surgery. 100% of the surgeries

are performed under topical anesthesia,

so only drops, no need

for shots around or behind the

eye and their risks and no need

for stitches. No knife, no shots, no

stitch surgery.

Cataract surgery results second

to none here, closer to home,

in Milford and now with the new

Panoptic implant, it is time to

be Panoptimistic!

Dean College

Presents:

Radium Girls,

October 17-20, 2019

The School of the Arts at

Dean College will perform Radium

Girls, beginning Thursday,

October 17 through Sunday,

October 20, 2019.

In 1926, radium was a miracle

cure, Madame Curie an international

celebrity, and luminous

watches the latest rage—until the

girls who painted them began to

fall ill with a mysterious disease.

Inspired by a true story, Radium

Girls traces the efforts of Grace

Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights

for her day in court. Written

with warmth and humor, and

envisioned by guest director

Aaron Andrade, Radium Girls is a

fast-moving, highly theatrical ensemble

piece. Called a «powerful»

and «engrossing» drama by

critics, it offers a wry, unflinching

look at the peculiarly American

obsessions with health, wealth,

and the commercialization of

science.

Radium Girls is presented by

Dean College Ranks

Among the Top Best

Regional Colleges

Dean College, a private, residential

college located in Franklin,

Massachusetts, has been

ranked 25th in the 2020 U.S.

News & World Report Best Colleges

rankings for the Best Regional

Colleges, North category.

This is the ninth consecutive

year that Dean College has received

the Best College honor.

“We are thrilled to be recognized

by U.S. News and our

peer institutions once again

this year,” said Dr. Paula M.

Rooney, Dean College President.

“It signals the overall

strength of Dean’s academic

experience and the emphasis

we place on student success.”

U.S. News & World Report is

a multi-platform, publisher of

news and information. The U.S.

News ranking system for the

Best Regional Colleges rests on

two pillars. The formula uses

quantitative measures that education

experts have proposed as

reliable indicators of academic

quality, and it is based on research

of what matters in education,

including: graduation

rate performance, academic

reputation, and financial selectivity

among others.

This year’s ranking is a testament

to The Dean Difference –

the hands-on and engaging

faculty & staff, strong academic

support, valuable internships,

and real-life workforce preparation

that Dean College provides.

Theatre Group of Millis to Stage Ken Ludwig’s

Baskerville Oct. 18, 19

Just in time for Halloween,

the Theatre Group of Millis

performs Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville:

A Sherlock Holmes Mystery/Comedy.

Performance

dates are Friday, October 18 at

7:30 pm, and Saturday, October

19 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

The world’s most famous

detective and his trusty sidekick

Watson face down their

most notorious case of all in this

madcap retelling of the ultimate

Victorian whodunit from the

mastermind of mayhem, Ken

Ludwig.

A stunningly nimble cast of

five takes on nearly 40 characters,

coming on and off stage almost

as quickly as the twists and

turns of this delightfully complex

plot, as Holmes and Watson

race against time to crack

the mystery of The Hound of

Medway Police Chase 5K

Rescheduled to Oct. 19

the Baskervilles before a family

curse dooms its newest heir.

The intrepid investigators’

search for the (anything but) elementary

truth comes complete

with a dizzying web of clues,

outlandish accents, disguises and

deceit. Does a wild hellhound

prowl the moors of Devonshire?

Can our heroes discover

the truth in time? Can costume

changes really be that fast?

The play will thrill

you with suspense,

danger or comedy!

Baskerville will

take place October

18 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday,

October 19

at 2 p.m. and 7:30

p.m., at Millis High

School theater, 245

Medway Public Schools Host Ribbon Cutting

Ceremony for New Playground at McGovern School

On September 19th, 2019,

Medway Public Schools held a

ribbon cutting ceremony for a

brand-new playground at Mc-

Govern Elementary at 9 Lovering

Street in Medway.

“Recess is an important part

of the school day where kids can

interact with one another outside

of a classroom setting and spend

some time outdoors. Having

this brand-new equipment with

lots of different activities to do

will help to enhance recess and

also provide a great space for

the community to come out and

play after school, Superintendent

Pires said.

On September 19th, 2019,

Medway Public Schools held a

ribbon cutting ceremony for a

brand-new playground at Mc-

Govern Elementary at 9 Lovering

Street in Medway.

“Recess is an important part

of the school day where kids can

of a classroom setting and spend

some time outdoors. Having

this brand-new equipment with

lots of different activities to do

will help to enhance recess and

also provide a great space for

the community to come out and

play after school, Superintendent

Pires said.

Medway Public Schools have

now opened two brand-new

playgrounds at the McGovern

School and Francis Burke-Memorial

Elementary School.

Funding for both playgrounds

was paid for in part by generous

donations from the Medway Elementary

Parent Teacher Organization

(MEPTO) and Medway

Extended Day (MEDI). The rest

of the funds were approved at

Town Meeting in May.

The playgrounds were designed

and built by Medwaybased

outdoor equipment

supplier M.E. O’Brien and Sons,

Inc. Construction on both playgrounds

began over the summer

and was completed on the week

of Aug. 26, before the start of the

new school year.

Both playgrounds are compliant

with the Americans With

Disabilities Act (ADA) and will be

used by about 500 students at the

Burke-Memorial School and 350

students at the McGovern School

each day.

“The previous playgrounds

were both over 15 years old and

this is a project that has been in

the works for the past few years,”

Superintendent Pires said. “The

new equipment is age-appropriate

for our elementary school

students and allows for a more

spread out feel with several different

elements for the kids to play

and interact with.”

Kane’s Versatility Key Asset for Millis Football Squad

By KEN HAMWEY,

Staff Sports Writer

Pictures sometimes accompany

words in a dictionary to

emphasize definitions. When

it comes to defining versatility,

it wouldn’t be surprising to see

Bryan Kane’s photo next to the

word.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound

Kane plays football for Millis

High and the junior captain personifies

versatility. He can play

linebacker or safety on defense,

and on offense he can be used as

a running back, wide receiver or

quarterback.

“Versatility is an asset,’’ he

said. “I don’t mind playing any

of the five positions. It presents a

lot of different opportunities and

it helps to better understand the

game. Sacrificing for the welfare

of the team is important.’’

Head coach Brian Kraby is

counting on Kane to contribute

in a variety of ways to help the

Mohawks improve on last year’s

4-6 record that prevented them

from qualifying for a playoff

berth. Now in his second year as

Millis’ head coach, Kraby is delighted

Kane has overcome an

elbow injury and very pleased

Kane was selected by his teammates

to be a captain.

“Bryan should be able to take

advantage of having a solid offensive

line,’’ Kraby said. “He’ll

be effective running the ball because

he’s a grinder. He’ll gain

four or five yards and if he gets

to the outside, he can break it

for long runs. On defense, he’s

tough as nails, and we expect

him to make lots of tackles.’’

Bryan Kane is only a junior, but he’s a captain whose versatility, mature

approach, and classy style make him a breed apart.

Kraby also is bullish on

Kane as a captain. “We’re a

young team and Bryan will be

extremely important in establishing

our chemistry,’’ Kraby

added. “He’ll help keep the

players positive and optimistic.’’

Kane, who also has experience

as a varsity basketball and

baseball player, says football is

his favorite sport, and he wants

play it in college. The odds are

high that college ball is in his future,

especially after attending a

summer camp in Ohio in June.

I went to a USA Football regional

camp at Bryant University,’’

Kane noted. “I started as a

receiver, but finished up at safety.

When it ended, I was selected to

attend the national USA camp

in Ohio. I was one of 260 to be

chosen, truly an honor. The four

days were so valuable. It was intense

and the instruction was

great. I learned a lot at safety,

and I’ve shared that knowledge

with teammates.’’

Besides his versatile nature,

Kane has other assets. “Bryan

has a high football IQ, he’s passionate

about football, he’s athletic

and coachable, and he’s got

size and strength,’’ Kraby said.

Those plusses were on display

in the Mohawks first two games

— a victory over Randolph

and a loss to Shawsheen Tech.

After the two games, Kane had

178 yards rushing and 63 yards

receiving. He recorded 17 tackles

and 2 interceptions playing

safety.

“My team goals for the season

are to get to the playoffs,

beat Medway and defeat Dover-

Sherborn,’’ Kane emphasized.

“We’ve got the talent and the

dedication to qualify for the

tourney. I’d like to defeat Medway,

our top rival, and Dover-

Sherborn games are always

intense and fun. I also want to

promote team chemistry. Personally,

if I continue at running

back, I’d like to gain 1,000 yards

and be selected as a Tri Valley

League all-star.’’

A native of Millis, Kane has

been hampered by torn ligaments

in his elbow for the last two

years. He was injured as a freshman

catcher in baseball trying to

throw out a runner stealing.

“I heard a pop,’’ Kane recalled.

“I didn’t have surgery but

I spent five months in rehab. I

missed half of the baseball season

as a freshman and missed

two games in football as a sophomore.

I skipped baseball last

spring to make sure I’d be fully

healthy as a junior.’’

Not only is Kane healthy, but

he’s also a captain who’s eager

to be a leader. “It’s a big honor

to be a captain as a junior,’’ he

said. “I’ll lead by example, by

being vocal, and I’ll also be supportive.’’

Kane is quick to laud three

teammates he expects to be

major contributors this season.

Two are captains — junior Tally

Smith and senior Johnny Pateuk

— and junior Ernesto Olivieri.

Smith is a linebacker and defensive

end, Pateuk plays linebacker,

tackle and fullback and

Olivieri plays tackle and nose

guard.

“Tally is a junior who’s a

quality leader,’’ Kane said.

“He’s respected, and he plays

aggressively. Johnny is also respected,

and he’s a hard hitter.

Ernesto is energetic, aggressive

and pursues very well.’’

Kane also appreciates Kraby,

admiring his coach on three

fronts. “Coach Kraby treats us

like a family,’’ Kane stressed.

“He knows the game, and he’s a

strong motivator.’’

Kane’s style on both sides

of the ball is easy to classify —

he’s aggressive, likes to hit and

he thrives on pursuit. A starter

in eight games last year, he had

45 tackles, 6 tackles for losses, 2

fumble recoveries and 2 interceptions.

“My two best games were

against Dover-Sherborn as a

freshman and against Hull last

year,’’ he said. “Both were victories.

My first start was as a

freshman against D-S and I had

10 tackles and forced a fumble.

Against Hull, I had 10 tackles, 2

sacks, 1 fumble recovery and 1

forced fumble.’’

An honor-roll student, Kane

plans on majoring in business

administration in college. He’s

not sure yet what school he’ll attend,

but he wants to continue

playing football, a sport that has

sharpened his athletic philosophy

and helped him learn valuable

life lessons.

“My competitive philosophy

is to win, to reach my potential

and to enjoy sports,’’ he emphasized.

“Some of the life lessons

I’ve learned are how to overcome

adversity and obstacles,

how to deal with losing, and how

to become a strong leader.’’

Mia Ferzoco Moves Up as Mentor in Millis Volleyball

By Christopher Tremblay,

Staff Sports Writer

Growing up Millis’ Mia Ferzoco

had been involved in gymnastics

since the early age of

three, but by the seventh grade,

she would find a new sport, and

gymnastics would soon become

a thing of the past. Thanks to her

friend, Hailey Chilsolm, Ferzoco

would be introduced to volleyball.

“Gymnastics was an individual

sport, where volleyball is all

about the team atmosphere,” the

Millis senior said. “After finding

volleyball, I decided to stop

gymnastics in ninth grade as it

was very time consuming and my

school work was getting harder.”

Soon after she found volleyball,

Ferzoco joined the Blast, a

club team out of Lincoln, Rhode

Island. Taking part with the Blast

as well as playing on the high

school team helped the newly

found volleyball player improve

her skills.

During her freshman and

sophomore seasons, Ferzoco

saw the majority of her playing

time with the junior varsity team

with a handful of games coming

here and there on the varsity

level. By her junior year, she

was starting for the Mohawks

as the team’s setter in addition

to being named a captain for the

first time. Being named a captain

was something totally new

and very strange to her.

“Being named captain my junior

year was a great honor, but

it was something that was totally

out of my comfort zone, and I had

to become a leader to the rest of

the team,” the now two-time senior

captain said. “It was very

nerve racking at first, but I eventually

felt comfortable with the

girls on the hand, especially when

they were helping me through it.”

Ferzoco, who had already played

four seasons with the Mohawk

volleyball program, had seen how

the upper classmen were enjoying

the sport and that was something

that she wanted to do as well. The

now senior setter originally found

her position to be somewhat challenging.

“Again, being a setter for the

team took me out of my comfort

zone as I had to be one of the

loudest players on the court and

pushing the other girls,” she said.

Mia Ferzoco has had a chance to

grow as an athlete and as a leader

in her time with Millis Volleyball.

“While it was not easy at first,

I believe it was for the best as I

am now a totally different person

when I step onto the court.”

Although Ferzoco didn’t see

herself as a team leader, her coach

certainly did.

“What can I say about a kid

who just gets it, she is a born

leader but that doesn’t stop her

from pushing to learn and achieve

more,” Millis Volleyball Coach

Lisa Farese said. “She works each

moment of each day to better not

only herself, but those around her

as well. She may not be the oldest

or most experienced athlete in

the gym, but she bridged the gap

between all of our teams.”

Now as a senior, Ferzoco has

to remember what it was like

when she was an underclassmen

and wants to use that to her advantage

in preparing the younger

girls on this year’s team.

“I need to stay loud and positive,

even if I’m not playing at my

best,” she said. “It can be tough at

times, but I have to remember that

the younger girls look up to me so

I need to stay positive and keep

the energy high.”

Once she steps onto the court,

Ferzoco may seem to be all in and

serious, but at times she wipes the

seriousness away and is all smiles.

“I often find myself thinking

how do I coach the philosophy of

working hard, while being willing

to take risks. We are always

looking for progression and not

perfection,” the Mohawk Coach

said. “But then because of Mia I

am reminded that we just need to

have fun. She puts in the work on

and off the court, but makes sure

she opens her arms to silliness and

that makes our team a family.”

Last fall Millis finished the regular

season with a 10-10 record

and found themselves playing in

the Division 3 Central Volleyball

Tournament. The Mohawks were

able to defeat Bellingham 3-0 in

the round, but unfortunately meet

up with Whitinsville-Christian,

the eventual Sectional Champions,

in the next round.

With the volleyball team advancing

into the post-season Ferzoco

was not only excited about

the opportunity that the team had

but with her own play.

“I felt that I had played really

well last year,” she said. “But

being the setter my success is because

of those around you, you

need the whole team to do well.”

As the season gets underway

the senior setter knows that it’s

not going to be an easy campaign

this fall.

“We’re in a rebuilding year,

and I don’t want the younger girls

to get discouraged,” she said. “I

want the younger girls to learn,

but also keep volleyball fun.”

Despite being her only varsity

returner this season the Coach is

anxious to get things started and

see what her setter brings to the

table this year.

“I am super excited to see what

she can do with our team,” Farese

said. “Now that she is not only

the oldest, but most experienced

player on the court.”

In addition to keeping volleyball

fun, Ferzoco is hoping to play

a competitive game while also enjoying

her senior year. Once the

season ends, the senior would

like to continue playing the sport

on the collegiate level, but most

likely on a club level.

Comparing Ultra-Safe Investment Options

With savings account rates at

historic lows, many retirees and

other savers are uncertain where

to go to stretch their dollars,

while keeping their assets as safe

as possible.

Options include certificates of

deposit (CDs), money market accounts,

U.S. Treasury securities

and fixed-deferred annuities.

How do they compare? Here’s

an overview:

Certificates of deposits (CDs):

Issued primarily by banks, a certificate

of deposit (CD) is a savings

vehicle with a fixed maturity

date and a fixed interest rate that

is insured by the Federal Deposit

Insurance Corporation (FDIC)

for up to $250,000 per CD

holder. CDs are typically used

for short- to medium-term savings

needs. They typically offer

a higher investment return than

traditional savings accounts, but

lower rates of return than fixeddeferred

annuities.1

Route 16, Mendon • 508-473-5079

www.nesteakandseafood.com

Money market accounts: A

money market account usually

combines the flexibility of a traditional

savings account with a

higher interest rate and the ability

to write a limited number of

checks. Money market accounts

seek to maintain a stable $1 unit

value and because of their stability

are often used as “parking

places” for liquid assets. These

accounts also are backed by the

FDIC, and typically require a

larger minimum balance than a

savings account.2

Treasury securities: Treasury

securities are essentially loans

to the federal government, and

come in three forms. T-Bills offer

the shortest terms—four, 13, 26,

and 52 weeks. T-Notes occupy

the middle, maturing in two,

three, five, seven, or 10 years,

while T-Bonds, known as “long

bonds,” offer a 30-year maturity

date and will pay interest on a

semiannual basis. Treasury securities

rank among the safest

investments, because they have

the backing of the “full faith and

credit” of the U.S. government

as to the timely payment of interest

and principal. However,

they are subject to inflation and

their values fluctuate in response

to changes in interest rates.3

Fixed-deferred annuities: A

fixed-deferred annuity offers

some of the benefits of a CD,

including the ability to generate

interest safely, while also giving

the holder the ability to delay

the payment of income taxes

on money earned on the annuity.

Their aim is to return your

principal investment to you with

interest.

Fixed-deferred annuities are

typically used for long-term funding

needs related to retirement.

However, access to the funds in

an annuity is limited, and fixeddeferred

annuities involve insurance-

related fees and charges.

They are issued by insurance

companies and are not backed

by the FDIC. Therefore, the financial

stability of the issuing insurance

company is key. You can

evaluate the financial strength of

an insurance company by checking

its ratings by independent

sources, which include Moody’s,

A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s,

and Fitch.4

Medway Police

Department Promotes

Derek Harrington to

Sergeant

On Wednesday, August 28,

2019, Patrol Officer Derek

Harrington was promoted to

Sergeant in a ceremony at the

Medway Police Department.

Family, friends and colleagues

gathered to watch Selectmen and

Town Clerk, Mary Jane White

swear in Sergeant Harrington,

which included a very special

moment when retired officer

and mentor, David McRoberts

pinned the badge on Sergeant

Harrington. Chief Allen Tingley

and Town Administrator,

Michael Boynton both shared a

few words during the ceremony

about Sergeant Harrington’s

commitment and dedication not

only to the police department

but to the community itself.

“It is very fitting that Sergeant

Harrington is being pinned today

by his mentor, Officer McRoberts.

We

are certainly

getting

a very

solid mentor

t o

our newer officers in Sergeant

Harrington,” said Town Administrator,

Michael Boynton.

Sergeant Harrington’s career

started in 1997 as a dispatcher

for the Medway Police

Department. He moved up the

ladder to patrol officer in 2002

and has served as a police investigator

for the last year and a

half. In addition to his commitment

to the Medway Police Department

he is also a dedicated

member of the Medway community,

currently serving in the

role as the Men’s High School

Varsity Hockey Coach. Derek

and his wife, Courtney, have four

children.
