contribute's picture

HOPKINTON, MA (May 27, 2014) – Staff at Baypath Humane Society received a call last week about a pair of dogs who appeared to have been dumped nearby. They were able to find the male, a sweet young dog they named Mush—but his mate proved elusive. She was hiding in a far away field, scared and alone—until a staff member brought Mush to the scene. Mush saved the day, giving his girl Blush the confidence to come running to safety.

The Planning Board voted to approve the site plan for the Verizon building at 35 Hayden Rowe Street during their June 2 meeting. A new generator is required at the site because the current generator is running at 100% capacity. Everything in the building has to be connected to the generator in the event of a power outage, and currently the building cannot be expanded because of this. Present at the meeting were architect Dennis Gray, consultants Lawrence Copley and Sandra Lake, and Verizon representative Scott Robinson.
