Article from the Worcester Telegram and Gazette Monday, June 9, 2014 Federal grants a boon for Auburn firefighters By Ellie Oleson CORRESPONDENT AUBURN — Monday's selectmen meeting was an evening of celebration and a reminder of past loss, as grants were announced that could save lives and reduce flooding. Fire Chief Stephen M. Coleman said the town had received one of its largest ever non-public works grants, a $344,000 Assistance to Firefighters grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The grant will be used to replace 38 self-contained breathing apparatus units, each with a spare air bottle, new facepiece and voice amplifier. Each unit will also have the capability to provide in-line buddy breathing. "Currently none of our SCBA's has that safety feature," Chief Coleman said. The grant will also fund a new air compressor and two rapid intervention packs with one-hour air bottles, "so if something goes wrong, we can perform a rescue," Cheif Coleman said. "The SCBA is the most important equip ...

My letter to the editor of the Worcester Telegram: Unfortunately, both Republicans and Democrats are to blame for the U.S. borrowing limit being raised to $17.1 trillion. This is shameful of any elected official currently in Washington. Our nation is borrowing money we don't have and can't pay back. One of the purposes of elected officials, whether Democrats, Republicans, or independents, is to find ways to save taxpayer dollars, not to create unnecessary spending. How long can the American people stand this? I say, no more. Our Founding Fathers wanted debate in this country. They would be rolling in their graves to know how partisan and bloated government is. People think debate is bad for the government. It is not. Debate shows that the government can function. Some elected officials promised to lower the debt, but voted to raise the debt. This has taken an extreme toll on the average Joe taxpayer, especially the middle class. Yet, the officials we elect to go down to Washington, D.C., continue to raise ...

I had some earlier exposure through a beloved aunt, nine years my elder, who played harp and hung around with the Paul Butterfield band. Boston had a vibrant blues scene at that time, and I began seeing great shows at some now infamous, but long gone clubs such as Club 47, and the Tea Party. I had to sneak in with my aunt at first, as I was under age by a few years. I saw most of the greats: Muddy, Jimmy Rogers, Otis Rush, Hubert Sumlin, Howlin’ Wolf, Sunnyland Slim, and J.B. Hutto, who was a favorite. ...

Those of us that had the pleasure of knowing Ben Masterman will appreciate this moving tribute from the Worcester Telegram. Ben never retired from helping others Tuesday, July 2, 2013 Ben never retired from helping others Ben Masterman always said he had no plans to retire, because he had no hobbies. "I don't play golf," he told me in 2011. "I don't work in the garden. I get my exercise by walking around and saying hi to everybody. That's what I love." Ben never did retire, and his employees at Masterman's adored him with a devotion more suited to a father figure than factory owner. That's because Ben's hobby was people. It sounds corny, but he spent his time on this earth caring about others and quietly improving their lives. Monday, Ben's employees arrived at work to learn that their beloved 76-year-old boss had died the day before, in Bermuda, after suffering a heart attack during a cruise with his family. When I texted his son, Todd, who was still in Bermuda, to say I wanted to write about his dad, he ...

Driver of bus that hit Massachusetts house was new to job. Posted: 06/27/13 at 7:20 am. AUBURN, Massachusetts -- The man driving a regional transit bus that crashed into an Auburn house earlier this week was on his first day of service. The Telegram & Gazette reports that the driver of the bus was 27-year-old Worcester resident Francis Artey. Worcester Regional Transit Authority official John Carney says that Artey went through a rigorous, eight-week training program before "driving in service" for the first time Monday. Carney says Artey was an experienced school bus driver with a stellar driving record. Police say it appears the brakes weren't applied before the bus smashed into the house. They say Artey may have had a medical problem, or there may have been a mechanical problem. The crash remains under investigation. Artey was hospitalized with fractures and facial lacerations, but no other serious injuries were reported.
They named him Philbert, and it seemed the long-haired, black-and-white stray knew they were trying to help him.
