In the News…

Today- Woman injured by a vehicle near Parker Road and Manchaug Road yesterday morning – Well that explains what all the sirens were about.

Yesterday-Mass Environmental Police announce increase in patrols on selected lakes across the state after recent jetski accidents.
Remember when operating a jetski that you must wear a life jacket, cannot operate between sunset and sunrise, cannot operate within 150 feet of a beach, cannot tow anything, and cannot operate if under 16 years old.

– In N.H. a woman pinned down a fox and held it there for 10 minutes waiting for police after it bit her daughter. Glad it wasn’t our foxes from Manchaug Pond!.. You know I haven’t seen a fox this year in Area 3. Wonder were the little ones who sat on my porch last year went to live.

Thursday – Two black bears eating at a bird feeder on a deck at a home on Coes Pond in Worester. Wasn’t it just a few years ago a black bear was spotted here on Manchaug Pond in Area 5 eating seeds from a bird feeder! Take those feeders in early in the season!

– In Douglas, an article titled “Decision on watershed district near” hits home! Selectman in Douglas have been hard at work with legal counsel and the lake associations to craft a document they can fully support which would create a municipal district for Whitin Reservoir. Douglas consulted their legal counsel, having him review the document and make recommendations which they felt would protect both the interests of the town and the towns people. The lake associations’ attorney incorporated the changes into the document addressing the board’s concern over the flow into the Mumford River for the wastewater treatment plant downstream, as well as concerns over the powers of eminent domain and that the town appointed member of the district have voting rights. Progress!

I wonder what will be in the Sunday paper! 🙂
