New Emergency Notification system for Hopkinton


Hopkinton, MA – 05 January 2010 - The Town of Hopkinton has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Hopkinton officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire town.


Fire Chief Ken Clark, Hopkinton’s Emergency Management Director, cautioned that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database; this is an extremely important feature.


“No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Chief Clark said urging all individuals and businesses to click on the graphic and follow the link to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page. Those without Internet access may call the Hopkinton Fire Department at (508)-435-0555 or fax your information to (508)435-0554, Monday through Friday, (8AM – 3:30PM) to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well.


All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, those who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.


Chief Clark explained, "CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages."


Chief Clark stated, "CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes." Questions should be directed to Chief Clark at 508-497-2325.


Although the voice messages provided through the system are a fast and effective way to provide notice. We encourage you to also complete the e-mail option to provide additional notification.

About Emergency Communications Network; Emergency Communications Network Inc. (ECN) provides affordable high-speed notification solutions capable of reaching millions of citizens in minutes. ECN’s sophisticated network supports a web-based product suite featuring CodeRED® which enables local government officials to communicate time-sensitive, personalized messages via voice, email and text

Planning Board Approves Minor Site Plan Review for Colella's Expansion

Accepts Downtown parking study

January 5, 2010— Among several items on the Planning Board's plate on Monday evening was a review of the exterior changes Colella's Supermarket will be making during their expansion into the former Strata Bank space that became available following its purchase and closure by Middlesex Savings Bank.

       Company CEO Dale Danahy explained that on the interior wall behind the facade of the Main Street side of the building will be a wall of frozen food cases, and that the existing door replaced with suitable material.

       The front door will be moved to where the former Strata Bank front door was.

       The Board approved the changes.

Downtown Parking

       Member Joe Markey, liaison to Downtown Revitalization Committee, said he would be memorializing the input of people from over several years regarding changes to parking Downtown, and being sure that it was given to the Conway School of Landscape Design, which will begin a study of the Downtown landscaping and traffic this month. The Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as some members of the business community, gave a total of $6,000 to pay for the study.

      On a related note, they accepted the conclusions of the study they did of Downtown Parking, which stated in a nutshell, "There appears to be sufficient parking for the current uses and buildings within the Downtown area at this time."

Legacy Farms

      The Planning Board and Legacy Farms representatives got hung up for longer than they had planned, because of differences between the town's engineer and Legacy's proposed street angle limit.

       Legacy proposed a 12% grade in one instance, while the town's engineer recommended a 9% grade.

      The Board recommended that they get together and resolve all points of disagreements that they could.

      "And then bring it back to us, and we will be the arbiters," said Chairman Mark Abate.

Fugitive Manson Brown Captured in Georgia


January 4, 2010 — Escaped fugitive MANSON BROWN was taken into custody late last night in DeKalb County, Georgia.


BROWN, 51, was apprehended by DeKalb County police officers after they received information that a man wanted in Massachusetts was at a gas station at approximately 11:15 p.m. Sunday. BROWN allegedly provided an alias to the officers. The false name allegedly used by BROWN had been identified by the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section as an alias that BROWN may try to use, and was listed on the warrant for his arrest. Armed with information, DeKalb police charged BROWN with using a false name and took him into custody.


BROWN escaped from the Old Colony Minimum Correction Center on Nov. 27, 2009. Since that time, investigators from the Massachusetts State Police, Department of Correction and United States Marshals Service have conducted an intensive search for him in Massachusetts and several other states.


“The State Police fugitive unit, along with its partners in law enforcement, has worked tirelessly to find this dangerous fugitive since his escape,” said Colonel Marian J. McGovern, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police.


BROWN was serving a sentence for home invasion and armed robbery. He was recently indicted by the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office for a 1996 rape in Cambridge and for being a habitual offender.


“I am pleased to learn that Manson Brown has been apprehended without incident and is in custody in Georgia. Mr. Brown will be returned to the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Correction,” said Massachusetts Department of Correction Commissioner Harold W. Clarke.


Plans are underway by authorities in Massachusetts to rendite BROWN to answer to charges related to his escape and the 1996 rape.


“Manson Brown is a dangerous, career criminal who will now face the very serious charges that we have indicted him for,” District Attorney Leone said. “We remain ready to prosecute Manson Brown on the habitual offender and rape charges we indicted him on and Brown will now face additional charges for escape due to the commendable work of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and members of the DOC Criminal Investigations Division in apprehending him.”

Colella's catches 6 liquor thieves in December alone

Above, a photo of a TV screen shot from one of many surveillance cameras trained on the liquor department in Colella's. In addition to the liquor department, the supermarket has cameras throughout the store.

by Robert Falcione

January 4, 2010 — Lamenting that it was some of their own customers who have ripped them off — at least the six who were caught in December alone — the owners of Colella's Supermarket, a 65 year-old family business, want to make it clear that they have adopted a zero-tolerance policy.

       "You steal, we will prosecute," is the theme that the owners and managers repeated in an interview last week. They did not identify anyone, because their aim is not to embarrass people, but to see that justice is done and to deter anyone who would consider shoplifting by letting them know they will be caught, and they will be prosecuted.

       Sandy (Colella) Varnum said, "They'll pay for a high-priced lawyer instead of paying for the alcohol. Some are still in he prosecution stage, and we want to see justice done.

       "Eric [Madson] does inventory every day, and knows when something is missing. So, if we don't see them walk out the door with it that day, which we often do, Eric rewinds the tape and watches the culprit taking the missing bottle," she said.

        "Diane [(Colella) McGrath] goes around and shows the photo to employees, and in every case, someone knows who the person is," he said.

        Mrs. Varnum said, "When we discover a theft has happened, everybody gets involved, employees and customers.

        "Nick [Danahy, family member] almost tackled one guy in the parking lot.

        "One guy came in on a bicycle, got caught stealing liquor, and begged for us not turn him in," she said. "We felt so bad."

        "It hasn't been the kids lately, it has been regular adult customers."

       "These people take the liquor and a candy bar and walk through the store, and by the time they reach the register, the liquor is nowhere in sight, and they end up paying for the candy bar. They are known to the employees and the community," said Marketing Director, Jen Shults.

        Mrs. Varnum said, "It isn't the kids — the word of our policy has spread among them — it is the well-dressed people with expensive clothes and cars. One woman made a dash toward her BMW SUV."

         "One woman who stole expensive vodka, bought some small canned goods. But while she browsed the aisles, she also helped herself to some cherry tomatoes, a banana and an apple," said Mrs.. Varnum.

       "These are professional, white collar people who know how to steal," said Mrs. Shults. "And they aren't strangers, they are people in the community."

        Mrs. McGrath said, "One guy came in like clockwork, so we waited for him."

       General Manger Dale (Colella) Danahy summed it up.

      "Theft increases the cost of doing business.

      "We paid $100,000 in debit and credit card fees alone last year," she said.  

      Her sister Diane added, "We try very hard to keep prices down."

Odor on East Main, Clinton Street, Phipps Street, Frankland Road, Wilson Street NOT natural gas - it is the odor chemical itself.

January 2, 2010  — At 5:35 pm Hopkinton Police received a report of a very strong odor of natural gas on Frankland Road, which is downhill from the natural gas facility on Wilson Street. After driving as far as Clinton Street, a police sergeant reported it to be widespread.

       While police and fire investigated, Air Products, which is one of the companies that has a role in the natural gas handling in that facility, phoned police to report that there was a leak of the chemical that they add to natural gas so that humans can smell it, but that there was no gas leaking. Natural gas in its untouched state is odorless.

The Senior Center is Not Just for Seniors

Senior Newsletter (left) is always above


A Note From The Director’s Desk:

It seems each year goes faster and faster. I can’t believe we have been in the new Senior Center more than three years. It has been a blessing to so many.


If you haven’t stopped in or made use of our programs and services, we encourage you to give it a try. We have much to offer. You can exercise both your mind and body, fill your heart with newly made friends and fill your belly with wonderful home cooked lunches.


You will find Hopkinton’s Senior Center is welcoming to all and not one bit cliquish. There are people of all ages. Spread the word - you don’t need to be a senior to come in or join a program as long as space allows. We’ve not run into a problem accommodating anyone yet. You may see children with their grandparents or teenagers volunteering as wait staff. We often hear folks don’t think they’re old enough to come here. The staff is starting to understand that reasoning; most of us are seniors now ourselves. But knowing what we know, you will find us enjoying the senior center when retirement strikes.


Happy New Year to all and here’s hoping it’s filled with good health and good friends.


Cindy Chesmore,


Did Someone Resolve to Quit Smoking

as a New Year's Resolution?

If so, how have the past 15 hours been?

HopNews will pay one person to quit



by Robert Falcione

January 1, 2010 - 3:00 p.m. — Yefim Shubentsov, often referred to as "The Russian" or  "The Mad Russian," has helped thousands of people quit smoking with a treatment he guarantees will work, or the subject may see him again at no extra charge — for life.

     This writer, following a visit with him many years ago after hearing testimonials from friends, left  his treatment without the urge to smoke after trying to quit for years. As many smokers know, there are a multitude of reasons (excuses) for not quitting, among them is the greatest one, procrastination.

      "I am going to quit tomorrow," is a favorite of many smokers.

      Then why are you going out at midnight to buy more?

      "Because, by 'tomorrow' I mean 'tomorrow when I get up'." So much for that good intention.

      "I am going to quit for New Year's."

      Well, how have the last 15 hours been?

      "I am going to cut down first to avoid the withdrawal. I will begin by limiting myself to 1 cigarette per hour."

      I have two things to say:

      Sure you are. How is that pipe dream — pun intended — working out?

      Secondly, what withdrawal?

      Please correct me if I am wrong on this, but the addictive part of nicotine affects the brain. There are behavioral things that go along with quitting, such as people wondering  why they feel like they are forgetting to take something with them when they put their keys in their pockets to leave the house. Some people become irritable; and many eat more food, as a way to fulfill the oral craving that cigarettes had previously satisfied. Some people don't know what to do with their hands. But never has anyone reported throwing up or getting a fever after quitting. If they did, it was coincidental.

      The addiction comes from nicotine telling the brain that the smoker is doing a good thing. Outside of twelve step programs everywhere, people who have kicked heroin, cocaine and alcohol, gather for a smoke. It is by far, one of the most addictive substances on the planet. Smokers everywhere can attest to that. There's much more.

     The nicotine in cigarettes coats the red blood corpuscles, restricting their ability to absorb oxygen, and making the body believe it needs to increase the heart rate, as well as produce more blood. It can actually burn out the blood-producing organs and cause hardening of the arteries and blood clots, according to the American Heart Association. Secondary Polycythemia Vera is a cancer of the blood that can be caused by smoking, due to the body's overproduction of red blood cells resulting from the lack of oxygen.

     Is there anyone who has not heard of some lung cancers being caused by smoking? No need to pursue that discussion.

    For people who sincerely would like to quit, I recommend Yefim Shubentsov. His card is displayed above at no charge, because it is a public service to testify to the positive results he achieves. Right-mouse click and choose to print. Then put it on the fridge as a reminder to call for an appointment at the next opportunity.



    And for those who really want to quit, but would like someone else to pay, please send an email  to detailing why you think it is important for you to quit smoking, and what steps you have taken so far. HopNews will pick the best one and cut a check to Yefim Shubentsov for the winner's treatment. We need at least 10 emails for the contest.

    The winner must go to the session alone. The only failures I have heard of are those who tie their fortunes together by going with another person and reporting their progress in frequent intervals to that person. Quitting is personal.

    And for those who do not care to write an essay, but would still like to quit smoking, please make a record of the name and number above and give his office a call.

    Some say it is the best $65 they ever spent.
