Although only one candidate will appear on the ballot, the town must still hold a special election on Tuesday, Dec. 16, to fill the open council seat.
The seat has sat vacant since a councilor's surprise resignation during the first meeting of October.
And state law mandates that the town hold an election to fill the vacancy even with the absence of a contested race. Not surprisingly, Town Clerk Deborah Pellegri does not expect a large turnout.
Polls will be open at the high school, 218 Oak St., from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Absentee ballots are available at the town clerk’s office in the Municipal Building, 355 East Central St. until noon on Dec. 15.Continue reading the article in the Milford Daily News here (subscription may be required)
Franklin TV has begun broadcasting from its new Hutchinson Street studio, a larger space where it plans to produce more programs and add a second outlet for local news and sports: radio.
The 3,500-square-foot building at 23 Hutchinson St., more than five times the size of the cable company's Depot Street studio, includes the addition of a community meeting space for other nonprofits and a kitchen to host cooking shows.
Since 2011, the number of locally produced shows on Franklin TV's airwaves has more than doubled. As of last year, the station produced 423 such programs.Continue reading the article in the Milford Daily News here (subscription may be required)

Franklin senior midfielder Tim LaRowe has been named the third annual HockomockSports.com Boys Soccer Player of the year. LaRowe was also selected as a Hockomock League All Star, EMass All Star and named an All-State player by the EMSCA.
LaRowe was a big reason why the Panthers were able to claim their fourth straight Hockomock League Kelley-Rex Division title. He scored four goals and had four assists on the season, but his affect on the game went far beyond the stat sheet.
"Statistics don't really tell the story of how valuable Tim was to our team," Franklin head coach Fran Bositis said. "He was clearly an outstanding leader, someone who his teammates looked up to and responded to. He was like having a coach on the field, he was our organizer offensively and defensively.
