Video Segment: Fire Station Open House

The Hopkinton Fire Station recently invited the public down for an open house. Children and Adults were allowed to check out the equipment and take a look inside the fire trucks. Children got to test out some of the equipment such as the fire hose and stokes basket. I caught up with the organizer of the event Bill Krauss of the Hopkinton Fire Department.

"Want to get to know the public, we want the public to get to know us. We coordinate this week with fire prevention week to raise awareness of fire safety such as smoke detectors, exit plans, stop drop and roll for the kids." "For activities we have fire truck rides, rope rescue demonstration, games with water and a band playing to create a warm atmosphere for their kids and families."

Fran Clark gave us a look at a stokes basket which is used for high and low confined space rescue. "There's 6 members of the Hopkinton Fire Department that are part of the search and rescue team." Clark mentioned that it does not take a whole lot of effort to pick someone up with the basket and many of the children at the open house enjoyed taking a ride in the basket.

The B.A.A. expresses our profound sadness at Mayor Menino's passing, together with our deep gratitude for the magnificent support to the Marathon, the B.A.A. and the hundreds of thousands of athletes who have run in Boston under his watchful eye. He was always one of the first spectators to arrive at the Marathon and the last to leave, including in 2014. He touched the event and the athletes in every way, every year. The race is diminished without him.

The Hopkinton Police Department requests that all motor vehicle operators use caution on Friday, October 31, 2014 during the afternoon and evening hours when children will be out trick or treating.

Please remember that children may be distracted going door to door or have limited vision due to their Halloween costumes. We urge all vehicle drivers to use extra caution during these hours. We also request parents accompany their children and to use flashlights or have reflective clothing on their costumes.

Please make this a safe and fun night for all.

Get Ready To Sleep In, Daylight Saving Time Ends Nov. 2

There's no need to hit the snooze button on Nov. 2, because the end of daylight saving time will give you that extra hour of sleep you've been craving -- if you live in an area that observes the time change, that is.

Clocks will fall back to standard time Sunday at 2 a.m. Smartphones with automatic date and time settings will make the change for users; but people with analog clocks and watches will have to manually set their timepieces back an hour. (We suggest making the adjustment before bed on Saturday night.)

That means that during the teen years, parents play a critical role. You have to help your teen plan ahead. You have to be the one who thinks about and brings up the risks he might meet.

Here are some tips:

Video Segment: Sarah Stoutamire "Nightlight" wins HCA Photo Award

Sarah Stoutamire's "Nightlight" was named the winner of the Photo Contest at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts. The image portrays someone waving around sparklers, highlighting the design the sparklers made. The judge of the contest described the photo: "For the mystery that it holds, in the way we see light graphing over time. "In the manner in which the subjects feet on the ground exist so ephemerally, it's speaks to the brevity of our human existence and it's touching in that sence." "This Photo embodies the mystery of the photographic process itself where writing with light in linear time creates a single frame allowing time to be compressed into an internal slot."

Sarah said she was in shock and had no idea that she was going to win the award and credited the other photos in the show stating "they were absolutely gorgeous." Sarah got the sparklers specifically for the photo shoot and took pictures of the various patterns she could create. Sarah used a Nikon d3-100 camera and set the camera timer for 10 seconds while she ran out to the spot with the sparklers to capture the image.

Sarah stated that she plans on studying illustration but plans on continuing practicing photography: "it's just a different way to express myself, but I will certainly be entering in future contests and I definitely want to experiment more with time exposure photography."
