Organize your home, find sheets and storage tubs on sale, and get a BOGO deal at Boston Market.
The holidays have passed and Marlborough families are taking back their homes by putting away decorations, cleaning closets, and getting organized. Think twice before you pack things away and store them in the basement. If you haven’t used something in a year, you probably won’t use it again. Get it into the hands of someone who can use it. 1. Donate items to the Marlborough Community Cupboard: Carol Phipps, manager of the Marlborough Community Cupboard, would be pleased to receive your donations of children's and adult clothing, baby equipment, games and toys, paperback books, videos, small household items (no large equipment or furniture please) as well as non-perishable food items.

Just about everyday Marlborough Patch will highlight an interesting story from the Marlborough Daily Enterprise published on that date 100 years ago.
Oct. 14, 1911: Ready to Hunt Game: Law Off in Massachusetts from Monday till Nov. 1 The hunting season will open Monday and from that day until Nov. 1 it will be legal to kill partridge, woodcock and quail as well as the other game allowed by law. According to law, every person hunting game must be a registered hunter and must pay $1 for that privilege at the office of City Clerk Murphy. Thus far 91 people have been granted the privileges.

This is the first in a series of articles that will take a look at some of those mysterious, often vague terms used in the Marlborough police log.
Editor's Note: Due to the Columbus Day holiday, there will be no police log today. Check back tomorrow midday for the Oct. 7-10 log. Several times a week on average readers will see an item in the Marlborough police log that they might not understand completely. This is often due to a single term covering a small range of incidents. This week we take a look at "missing persons." "It could mean a few things," said Detective Martha Shea, of the Marlborough Police Department. "But the majority of them represent parents reporting runaway children. That statement is not meant to diminish the serious nature of these reports, however, as sometimes these reports do represent the beginning of an actual missing persons case, said Shea. Beside …

Area nonprofit thanks community for participation and contributions.
Thanks to strong community support and beautiful weather, the 25th Annual Assabet River Cleanup was an outstanding success! We are very happy to say that on Saturday, Sept. 17, over 130 volunteers came out to clean up the Assabet, Sudbury, and Concord rivers and their tributaries. Despite high water remaining after hurricane Irene, volunteers in towns throughout the watershed pulled out piles of trash, including bicycles, tires, bottles, car parts, bags of bottles and cans — even a kitchen sink! More than 40 volunteers worked to clean up the Assabet River in Stow, Hudson, and Marlborough. Volunteers combed the banks and waded in the river, pulling out a substantial amount of debris. In addition to the volunteers who did the wet, dirty work…
