In response to some strong words by the Marlborough mayor at a city council meeting, Northborough Town Administrator John Coderre issues a letter.
In response to statements made at a recent Marlborough city council meeting, Northborough Town Administrator John Coderre stresses that the town is not late with its $190,000 payment for a sewage bill. Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant and DPW Commissioner Ronald LaFreniere addressed the issue at the meeting, Vigeant stating, “Hopefully we can stir things up and get a check to us." In a letter sent to Vigeant, Coderre indicated it is hardly the case, pointing to an invoice for FY2012 was received on Nov. 15, with a payment due date of Dec. 14.

Dr. Julie Silver needed to recover and rehabilitate after she had breast cancer. She realized others need this, too.
About a year after Julie Silver, M.D., finished treatment for breast cancer, she was talking to one of her best friends, and started crying. The friend remarked, "I didn't realize this was still so hard for you. I thought you were all done. You always walk around with a smile on your face." While the smile was sincere, Silver admits that most of the world didn't know how sick she really was. "They didn't realize how long it was to recover," said Silver. "I thought a lot about how your outward appearance can look restored, but physically you can be tired, be in pain, and have problems with endurance. I thought, 'If I fooled one of my best friends, what must the rest of the world be thinking?'" When Silver was in recovery from breast cancer…

Sometimes people don't know what to do with their old tires, or don't care. Do you know of any tire piles in Marlborough? There is someone you can call.
Perhaps the most defining image of pollution over the years has been one of a pile of old tires sitting down by the once-clean river. We've all seen them. Sometimes stacks sit on property, or they are tossed down an embankment, destined to rest there until the end of time. You may not be aware that the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), which has its headquarters in neighboring Northborough, is making efforts to clean up discarded tires. Not only do these tires pollute the environment and look ugly, they are ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Thousands of them. "Used tire casings left out in the environment and allowed to hold water provide suitable areas for larval mosquito development, including those species …
