courtney's picture

During their November 3 meeting, the Planning Board unanimously voted to remove three trees and an additional tree if necessary along Ash Street as well as alter two stone walls in order to allow a sidewalk to be installed on the scenic road. At the last Town Meeting, $1.5 million was granted for the installation of sidewalks in different areas of town. Although it was the Planning Board who recommended the sidewalk be installed and it is a town project, abutters agree that this will help to make Ash Street safer. Present to speak on the issue was DPW director John Westerling.

Managing Your Chronic Disease

Chronic diseases such as asthma, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes currently affect more than half of all American adults, with two out of three patients having multiple conditions. The incidence of these conditions is expected to increase, as members of the baby boom generation reach the ages when such diseases become more prevalent.

Traditional care for these chronic conditions has centered on the physician’s role, but a new model of care is emerging - one focusing on patient self-management.

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.
