"just $31.50 a week, $4.50 a day, or $1.50 a meal"


Secretary John Polanowicz kicked off the SNAP Challenge this week with a shopping trip at Save-A-Lot in Springfield to highlight the importance of this benefit as a front line defense against hunger. The Secretary is joining his family, Congressman James McGovern, Department of Transitional Assistance Commissioner Stacey Monahan, Senator Jamie Eldridge and participants across the country in taking the challenge from June 13-19. Participants must live on a total food budget of $31.50 for the week, or the average, per-person federal SNAP benefit. 
“While living on a food stamp budget for just a week cannot come close to the struggles encountered by low income families week after week, and month after month, it does provide those who take the challenge with a new perspective and greater understanding,” said Secretary Polanowicz.

The Franklin Food Pantry is able to help those in our community receiving SNAP by supplementing with other food and non-food items. Your contributions help make this happen.  Whether you contribute time (by volunteering), goods (food and non-food items) or money, it goes to help your neighbors.


a "powerful experience"

Friday was Flag Day and the battlefield cross to honor one of Franklin's fallen was unveiled at theYMCA.

Jesse "The Machine" Green carved the battlefield cross as a gift for Cabino-Cipriano and her family. 
Before Thursday, Green - the chainsaw sculptor from Medway who starred in the National Geographic series "American Chainsaw" - and Cabino-Cipriano had never met in person. 
When the moment came, they embraced one another for what seemed like minutes, Green giving Cabino-Cipriano a bear hug.

Commuting on i495 was a mess on Friday

Two accidents, one during the morning commute and one during the evening commute left i495 something like a parking lot for hours. If you were caught in either or both sets of traffic, here are the stories on the accidents themselves.

A 4-year-old girl was killed in a single-vehicle crash on I-495 northbound in Bellingham around 6:30 Friday morning, according to the state police.

State police officers called Life Flight to transport one person after a single-car crash on I-495 in Bellingham on Friday afternoon, a state police spokesperson said.

What will future jobs look like?

In this TED Talk, Andrew McAfee talks about the jobs of the future and what it means for us.




Winston Churchill came to my home of MIT in 1949, and he said, "If we are to bring the broad masses of the people in every land to the table of abundance, it can only be by the tireless improvement of all of our means of technical production." 
Abraham Lincoln realized there was one other ingredient. He said, "I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to give them the plain facts." 
So the optimistic note, great point that I want to leave you with is that the plain facts of the machine age are becoming clear, and I have every confidence that we're going to use them to chart a good course into the challenging, abundant economy that we're creating.


Franklin Downtown Partnership’s annual Strawberry Stroll


"I am pleasantly surprised," said organizer Nicole Fortier of the large turnout. "It just goes to show you that the strawberry shortcakes really draw people in." 
Along with the partnership’s other seasonal events, the stroll shines a light on the downtown. Local businesses had tables set up throughout the plaza for people to stop by and find out what they’re all about. 
"It’s really a great community event," Fortier said.

Franklin School Calendar Survey


A message from FRANKLIN PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT

June 12, 2013

Dear Parents/Guardians/Faculty:

As the administration and School Committee collaborate to develop a school calendar, we need to balance the needs of students, parents and school professional. Additionally, we need to be mindful of federal, state and religious holidays and the contractual obligations necessitated in our bargaining agreements. With the addition of the challenges presented by inclement weather (snow, hurricanes that result in widespread power outages and tree damage) scheduling school days may present calendar challenges.

In an effort to seek feedback from our stakeholders we would like to collect data to inform the development of future school calendars. The last time we solicited feedback was in 2007 and we felt this might be an opportunity to seek your opinions. We are asking you to complete this brief survey and when the results are complete we will report them out at a School Committee meeting and on our web site. We will seek data from parents/guardians and from our faculty as well.

Thank you for taking the time to participate and we value your feedback.
To access the survey, follow this link:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/752GSL5

This survey will be open from June 12 through June 26, 2013.

Respectfully,

Maureen Sabolinski
Superintendent of Schools

Continuing the Tradition of Father’s Day at the Y

More than a century ago, Sonora Louis Smart Dodd aspired to create a holiday to honor fathers. Dodd, the daughter of a single father and Civil War veteran, was inspired by a Mother’s Day sermon and wondered why there was no holiday for fathers. After securing support from ministers in Spokane, Wash., her idea came to fruition with the first Father's Day celebration at the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910.

On Sunday, June 16, the Hockomock Area YMCA joins the nation in celebrating Father’s Day by recognizing the impact fathers and adult male role models make in children’s lives. Nationally, one out of three children lives in a home without their biological father, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And, societal factors such as unemployment, work-life balance or a lack of resources can affect fathers’ ability to seek support in strengthening their parenting skills and more fully engaging in the lives of their children. The Hockomock Area Y remains dedicated to providing resources and opportunities for fathers to further involve themselves in the well-being and development of their children.

“Father’s Day reminds us why it’s important to provide fathers with the support they need to be the best parents and caregivers they can be,” says Ed Hurley, president of the Hockomock Area YMCA.

YMCA Father's Day
Father and son duo Frank and Nathan enjoy a moment together at last year’s Hockomock Area YMCA Integration Initiative Golf Clinic hosted by TPC Boston.

Studies show that children with close relationships with their fathers and other adult male role models have more self-confidence and exhibit less depression, perform better academically and engage in significantly less drug and alcohol use.

The Hockomock Area YMCA offers a variety of programs that foster understanding and companionship between children and their caregivers such as parent-child aquatics, dance, enrichment, gymnastics, and sports classes as well as our community garden family share program in the town of Mansfield to name a few. We also offer a myriad of sports leagues and encourage parents/caregivers to volunteer as coaches to reinforce our core values – caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility – that unite us with a common cause of strengthening families and communities.

Yes, there are bricks!


This is the way we lay the bricks
To make the walls strong and thick
This is the way we lay the bricks
All day long.

Maybe the construction folks are not singing this nursery rhyme but the first bricks are being laid along the back right corner of the new high school.

FranklinHS_Bricks1
first bricks - Franklin High School

I stopped by on Sunday to grab these photos (making hay while the sun shines) to catch up on the progress.

first bricks - close view
I can imagine what it might be like to work the brick.

It would be interesting to watch to see how the platform moves and how the supports are adjusted as the bricks rise up the wall.

With floors and ceilings roughed in, there are lights now. I wonder how it looks at night. The darkness and just the individual lights.

As quiet as this place is on a Sunday, I can also imagine it must be pretty busy during the normal working day.

The building is impressive in its skeleton shell. Stay tuned for more photos next month as we mark the progress on the new high school.

Bill allows regionalization of dispatch services

In May, I was joined by Franklin Town Adminstrator and Fire Chief Gary McCaraher at the State House to testify in favor of House No. 2189, an Act establishing a district to operate a regional public safety communications and dispatch center for the Towns of Franklin, Norfolk, Plainville and Wrentham.  It would allow the Towns of Franklin, Norfolk, Plainville and Wrentham, through their respective town council and boards of selectmen, to enter into a written agreement for the purpose of establishing a district to construct, equip, operate and maintain a consolidated regional public safety communications and dispatch center. You can read the Milford Daily News report on the bill by clicking here.
  
Combining the dispatches for all of the towns will improve the response times, save taxpayer dollars, and make the citizens of the region safer. The bill would also give the towns quicker access through joint resources. Dispatchers at a regional center will have state-of-the-art tools and the latest technology. Rather than facing the numerous distractions in a typical police station, the dispatchers in the regional center can focus exclusively on taking calls and alerting first responders. The consolidation of resources and enhanced technology will allow dispatchers to stay on the line with a caller during an emergency—providing CPR instructions, for example—while another dispatcher follows through with lining up the response resources. And the dispatchers will receive training that will get them up to, and keep them at, professional standards set by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International. In short, the center will offer amenities that communities could not afford by going it alone.
The bill mirrors Chapter 156 of the Acts of 2010 which established a regional dispatch center for the towns of Cohasset, Hingham, Hull & Norwell. Regional dispatch centers have also been formed in Essex County. The state encourages communities to regionalize emergency dispatch centers because it allows cities and towns to cut the cost of providing those services to residents. It also is a more efficient way of providing the service.
Franklin, Norfolk, Plainville and Wrentham have already been provided with grant money through the State 911 Department Regional and Regional Secondary PSAP and Regional Emergency Communication Center Development Grant program to complete construction of the center and fund operations for three years, but they are unable to proceed without legislative approval of this bill. The State 911 Department  supports the development and startup of regional and regional secondary PSAPs and regional emergency communication centers, to maximize effective emergency 911 and dispatch services as well as regional interoperability.
As always, it is an honor and privilege to represent Franklin and Medway. Thank you for your support in the effort to make Massachusetts a great place to work and live.
Sincerely,

Medway forum on economic development

The Medway Economic Development Committee held its inaugural business workshop to discuss attracting new business to the area and help existing companies make the most of resources to keep them here and help them grow.

The emphasis was on how Massachusetts is working to keep businesses in Massachusetts while drawing in new industry. many of the area business and industry leaders described how they used some government resources to help them grow.

Franklin's BMAC makes top 3 for greatest job in the world

Brittany MacLeod (aka BMAC), a 2009 Franklin High School graduate wants to become Australia's first "Chief Funster," one of six new positions that the country's tourism department has sought to fill through the "Best Jobs in the World" contest.
MacLeod, a 2013 graduate of Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., has earned a place among the top 3 applicants for Funster in Chief. To get there, she had to beat out 600,000 people from 196 countries.
The job description opens with, "If you're the life of the party, always in search of the best events and coolest festivals, then why not do it for a living?" In her role as Chief Funster, she would be based in Sydney, the country's largest city, spending a year traveling across New South Wales to promote exclusive festivals and events via new media.
You can learn more about her campaign by clicking here. You can get a glimpse at all three finalists by clicking here. You can view video of Brittany being honored by the House of Representatives by clicking here, and Rep. Roy's endorsement by clicking here.

Gun forum sets civil tone

On May 30, Dean College hosted our gun violence forum featuring a panel of legislators, Franklin's police chief, two college professors, and the Executive Director of the Gun Owners Action League.. The event was well received in the community and was helpful in sorting through many of the issues surrounding this volatile topic.

The information and comments provided by the panel were thoughtful, engaging, and material to the discussion, highlighting the difficulties faced by legislators in this area. The forum also made it clear that by sticking to the facts and avoiding hyperbole, we can have a civil discussion on reducing gun violence.

You can read the Milford Daily News story on the forum by clicking here. The event was captured on video by Franklin TV and will be replayed over the next several weeks on local cable access in both Franklin and Medway. Click here for the latest program guide.

Passing the plate for charity
Our license plate bill was featured in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette last week. House Bill 3136 would reduce the number of initial applicants required to purchase specialty plates in advance, and those additional ones during the first two years from 1,500 to 500. So, instead of 3,000 applicants, 1,000 would be sufficient.

By lowering the initial threshold for specialty plates, we can help charitable groups who are finding it difficult to raise money and keep their programs going. It's a revenue-neutral bill and a way to help charities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And it has bipartisan support in the House.

Moving Wall a fitting tribute

Last week, Medway MA was the temporary home to the Moving Wall. Rep. Roy was given the honor to speak at the opening ceremony. As he noted, many Americans answered the call to duty on the battlefields of Vietnam. The Wall offered a time to extend tributes of thanks and share collective memories of these troops, to reflect on the valor of the fallen, and the bond of freedoms that unite Americans. As President John F. Kennedy once said: "A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers."

Franklin residents honored at HOPE breakfast

At a very special legislative breakfast focusing on people with differing abilities, Rep. Roy had the honor and privilege to present a citation to the Jim & Kathy Stoffel for their assistance with Karen Mackie and their heroic efforts to save her life on Christmas Day. 

Congratulations Jim & Kathy and thank you for the great contributions to our community.
