Concerned about protect-
ing wildlife near a proposed
housing development on Mon-
roe Street, Conservation Com-
mission members said Monday
night they would consider ap-
plying for Community Preser-
vation Act funding to purchase
a portion of the property.
Voters could see a Town
Meeting article as early as this
fall related to the purchase if
the commission can put to-
gether an application and re-
ceive Community Preserva-
tion Committee approval by
the deadline.
The fall special Town
Meeting is typically when res-
idents vote on CPA projects,
with funding available in three
categories: open space/recre-
ation, affordable housing and
historical building projects.
The topic came up at the
Conservation Commission’s
public hearing on the Kallio
Path project Monday night.
Developer Bob Gosselin is
seeking approval for a cul-de-
sac road off Monroe Street,
just south of Felicia Terrace,
with plans to sell up to 10 sin-
gle-family house lots around
it. The property abuts the
town-owned Tubbs Meadow
Preserve and contains an out-
of-service cranberry bog.
The commission’s envi-
ronmental consultants have
reported the presence of at
least one certifable vernal
pool (part-time wetland habi-
tat) on the property, though
neighbors have suggested
there may be more.

It’s been nine years since
she graduated from high
school, but Pembroke na-
tive Stacy Padula remembers
clearly what it felt like to be a
teenager.
“It was such a war zone,”
she said of high school. “You’d
have somebody say something
about you and you’d be like, ‘I
don’t even know where they
got that.’ […] Between the
rumors, the gossip, the fake
friendships and the drugs … it
was defnitely a war zone.”
A 2001 graduate of Silver
Lake Regional High School,
Padula has good memories,
too, and is still best friends
with people she went to school
with. But she also believes
kids may not get an honest pic-
ture of what high school is like
before they get there.
“I grew up reading a lot of
books and it kind of painted
a picture in my mind of what
high school was going to be
like, and then I stepped into
it and it wasn’t anything like
BACK TO SCHOOL: Pembroke
native Stacy Padula drew from
her own high school experi-
ence when writing her series
of teen books.

A visit with CJ and Nick
By Mike tropeano, express contriButor
T
he performing arts
program at Pem-
broke High School
has produced many award-
winning musicians over the
past few years. Two recent
graduates, CJ Gallopo and
Nick DiPrizio, have expanded
on this rapidly growing tradi-
tion in becoming a popular
acoustic duet. Mixing covers
of new and old classics with
some homegrown tunes, the
two have played to packed
houses in many different ven-
ues. This fall, the pair will take
a hiatus from performing as
CJ attends the University of
Pennsylvania and Nick studies
locally at Suffolk University.
When did you begin per-
forming? Nick: I think it was
in ffth grade. I took lessons
for three years and have been
playing on my own for the past
few.
CJ: I started singing and
playing at the same time. The
music appreciation class at the
high school opened my eyes to
it. It wasn’t until sophomore
year when I did it offcially.
When we got together to per-
form is when I picked up the
guitar so I could play backup
for Nick. I kept at it and played
a lot in my room. Nick showed
me a couple of things; I guess
I was ‘Nick taught.’
How did CJ and Nick get
its start? Nick: We were in
the music appreciation class
together and had guitar days
twice a week. We sat together
during those times; I played
and CJ sang. CJ lives down the
street from me, and we just got
together all the time.
It was through the school
that we started playing out in
front of audiences. We played
in the audition shows put on by
the school. The frst time was
our sophomore year when we
played in the solo/ensemble
concert in the fall.
CJ: Our frst bona fde
show was May of our junior
year. We played at the All Asia
bar in Cambridge. We had ter-
rible times like 4 p.m. on a
Sunday, but we packed it with
our friends and had a blast.
After that, we had a heavy
show schedule. We always
play Blakeman’s on Duxbury
Beach, which is owned by
Dana Batista, a teacher at the
high school. We went from not
playing out to playing out all
the time. It was really cool.
Nick: Once we got the ball
rolling last summer, we played
a bunch of other local events
— the Pembroke Arts Festi-
val, an arts festival at the high
school and the Oysterfest at
Blakeman’s.
What is your most mem-
orable performance? CJ: The
beneft show for Matt McClune
was probably our biggest audi-
ence; it was about 300 people.
We raised about $4,100, which
was great. I would say our
most memorable was our re-
cent farewell show. It was in
my backyard.
Nick: We had planned
about nine songs. It was our
own thing. We were not wor-
ried about sound.
CJ: It was really relaxed. It
was a good way to give back
to everyone who came to see
us play. We did about nine en-
cores.
Now that you are go-
ing to different colleges, are
there any plans to continue
doing this? CJ: We are doing
the fnal weekend at Blake-
man’s before we go to school.
We will be there the nights of
Aug. 27-29.
Nick: We have been friends
since the third grade at Hobo-
mock, so I would think we
will keep playing together. We
probably won’t have the same
amount of shows, but it will be
nice to get back to Blakeman’s
or some of the other shows
when we are home for vaca-
tions or for the summer.
How much original work
have you done? What are the
songs about? CJ: We have
probably done about 25 songs;
we end up not liking some and
just get rid of them.
Nick: We have about six
that we really like and have
released. CJ does most of the
writing. It is mostly his cre-
ativity.
CJ: It really isn’t inspired
by anything. It really comes in
a fash. The person listening is
who comes up with the mean-
ing, which can be different to
each person.
Nick: What I really like
and think is cool is when a
song can have different mean-
ings to each person. We have
songs where it is different for
CJ and me.
What is the song writing
process like? CJ: I just play
a melody on the guitar and
make up lyrics. When I show
Nick the song, he will play a
riff over it and make it more
dynamic playing something
over it.
Nick: He values my opin-
ion when we review the song.
It is a two-part process. The
base is his lyrics, and I will
add some lyrics, harmonica
solos or something else.

DiPrizio have been playing together as CJ and Nick since their
sophomore year. The duo will take a temporary hiatus this fall as
they go their separate ways for college, but they hope to reunite
for some shows during school vacations. Photo by Mike Tropeano

S
everal Pembroke
students recently
participated in South
Shore Conservatory’s 2010
Summer Music Festival. Un-
der the leadership of Music
Director Malcolm Rowell,
Program Directer Ed Sorren-
tino and guest instructors and
conductors, students from the
South Shore and beyond were
part of a program with a dual
goal: playing music for the joy
of playing while also learning
and perfecting technical skills.
“The culture of Summer
Music Festival is not typical
of a summer day program,”
Sorrentino said. “It is about
encouraging the complete stu-
dent. We work extensively on
technical skills, but we also
focus on playing what is emo-
tionally pleasing. It’s all about
playing from the heart. We
know our approach resonates
with the kids because we see it
every day in their commitment
to the music and in the camara-
derie of being with like-mind-
ed student musicians.”
Pembroke students who
participated in the 2010 two-
week program include Soumya
Karra, Corey Kilgarriff,
Charles Meyer, Dan Sullivan
and Jake Sullivan.
The Conservatory’s Sum-
mer Music Festival allows
woodwind, brass and percus-
sion students to participate in
up to three ensembles (by age
and ability) as well as master
classes. The program focuses
on group rehearsals and mu-
sicianship workshops that
expose students to improvisa-
tion, composition and creative
movement while allowing
them to enhance their listening
skills, technical abilities and
overall musical knowledge.

the South Shore Conservatory,

campus at 781-934-2731 or

The Pembroke Bees have
been as busy as ever.
The Council on Aging-
based quilting group recently
completed a colorful quilt to
be raffed off for the Friends
of the Council on Aging.
Entitled “Houses Galore,”
the quilt features different
types of houses, including a
log cabin, birdhouse, grass hut,
Asian-style home and church,
as well as a specially made
square featuring the Council
on Aging building in the cen-
ter of the design. Most of the
squares were picked up al-
ready sewn at a yard sale, and
the Bees teamed up to stitch
them all together.
Raffe tickets cost $2 each
or three for $5 and are avail-
able from Bees members or at
the senior center. The winning
ticket will be drawn at the COA
craft fair on Saturday, Oct. 23
at the senior center. The event
and the raffe are the Friends’
major fundraiser for the year
and will help them fund events
and activities at the senior cen-
ter.
The Bees meet every week
to work on various individual
and group quilting projects.
For more information, call
the senior center at 781-294-
8220.

POLICE & COURT BRIEFS
Police: Woman left
without paying for
$570 in groceries
A Marshfeld woman was arrested Saturday
after she allegedly faked swiping her debit card
for about $570 worth of groceries.
A loss prevention employee at Pembroke
Stop and Shop told police a female customer
had used the self-scanner as she walked through
the store but when she went to pay for a cart full
of groceries, only $14 worth of items had been
scanned (the actual value later was determined
to be $570.82). The employee then reportedly
observed the woman pretend to scan her debit
card and punch in her PIN, then leave without
really paying. The woman, Sherri Bohin, 48, of
Hartford Road, Marshfeld, was escorted back
into the store to wait for police.
Bohin was arrested and charged with larceny
over $250. She was later released on personal re-
cognizance and arraigned Monday in Plymouth
District Court, where she pled not guilty. She is
due back for a pretrial hearing on Oct. 5.
Copper piping removed
from vacant home
Police were called to a vacant home on
Mill Pond Road Monday afternoon on the re-
port that someone had broken in and removed
all the copper piping in the house. Pembroke
Police Lt. Mike Jenness said the individual en-
tered by kicking in the front door and then cut
into the baseboards, cupboards and elsewhere
in the two-story home to remove copper piping,
probably for its resale value. Jenness said inci-
dents similar to this have been occurring across
the South Shore ever since the price of copper
increased. Police are investigating.
Local man arrested
for 2008 break-in
A Pembroke man accused of breaking into
a Plympton home in March 2008 was arrested
last week on a default warrant after failing to
appear in court when summonsed.
Todd R. Robinson, 32, of Mattakeesett
Street was being held on $500 cash bail early
this week after Halifax Police arrested him on
Friday, Aug. 13. He faces one charge of felony
breaking and entering of a home.
The charge stems from a March 2008 inci-
dent in which residents of a Grove Street, Pl-
ympton home called police after discovering
someone had broken into their home and sto-
len a television, several pieces of jewelry and
cash. The individual appeared to have entered
through an unlocked kitchen window and left
through the basement door, which had been
kept locked, according to reports. Among the
items taken were $630 in cash, a 61-inch Sam-
sung TV and diamond and sapphire rings.
In November 2009, offcers with the Plym-
outh County Sheriff’s Department reported that
fngerprints taken at the scene matched those
of Robinson. Robinson was summonsed on the
charge and due to appear in court on Jan. 7, but
he failed to appear, according to court docu-
ments.
He is due back in Plymouth District Court
on Aug. 25 for a pretrial hearing.
BENCH PALS: Ashley Rose Zechello (third from left) and friends
Sadie Murphy, Hannah Dixon and Anna Delmonaco sit on the
bench that was dedicated to Ashley’s mother, Fionna, on Saturday,
Aug. 14. The bench is located at Birch Street Park, where Ashley
and her mother came to play.
Memorial gift dedicated ————————
F
amily and friends
of the late Fionna
Zechello gathered
at Birch Street Park on Sat-
urday morning to dedicate
a bench in her memory.
Fionna died after a severe
asthma attack in Septem-
ber, leaving husband Nick
and daughter Ashley. On
Saturday, Ashley and her
dad arrived in a stretch limo
and she cut the ribbon on
the bench and plaque dedi-
cated to her mother, located
across the street from the
Zechello home at the park
where Fionna and Ashley
spent many hours at play.

ot Spot of the Week: The 21 Can off Minot’s Light
— bass, blues, tuna.
Tip of the Week: Tube and worms for bass fsh-
ing has been hot. Try running a tube and worm on three to fve
colors of 45-pound lead core line at slow speeds.
Coastal Report: Tuna fshing has been red hot one day and
ice cold the next. Most of the tuna are coming
on live bait fshed from kites and next best is
live bait from a balloon fshed at about 10 to
12 feet deep. During the week when the boat
traffc is down and the waves are 1 to 3 feet,
squid bars have been working. The hot colors
are bars in all pink or root beer.
Guys fshing the Southwest Corner are doing OK on
medium giants, but on weekends fshing is tough. Over at the
Old Coast Guard Station on the backside of Provincetown,
bass fshing is OK but the bite can be very short lived. Fish are
mainly in the pot lines and will take dark jigs and umbrella rigs.
Tuna fshing at Peaked Hill Bar is still very slow, although
there are large schools of bait — but no fsh. Up at the Race at
Provincetown, fshing from the Rip to the Bath House is good
with some nice keeper bass and some 10-pound bluefsh. Again,
the bite doesn’t last long. Mostly black and purple or red jigs on
wire work well.
Back across the bay at Plymouth and Duxbury Bay, water
temperatures are warm and fsh are very fnicky. Best bet is
founder fshing in the Cordage Channel or at the Powder Point
Bridge, and there are some schools of bass and blues also. The
blues are the right size to save for tuna bait. Over at Brown’s
Beach, fshing tube and worms in the early morning or after
dusk is best (some nice keepers). Over at Duxbury Beach,
founder fshing is good. Sea worms are working well. There are
some bass and bluefsh at High Pines. Deep swimming plugs
and umbrella rigs are the trick here.
Off the jetties at Green Harbor, fshing after dark with plugs
or live bait has been okay. Some small keeper bass are being
landed. Tube and worms are working at Bluefsh Cove off the
trailer park at Brant Rock. At the mouth of the North and South
rivers, founder are still plentiful.
Outside at Third and Fourth Cliffs, tube and worm fshing
is your best bet to land a keeper bass. Umbrella rigs are also
working, and there are bass from 35 to 37 inches along with
some small blues. The same holds true for fshing off First and
Second Cliffs.
Up at Minot’s Light, bass and blues have been feeding in the
early morning. Also at the 21 Can, many nice size bass and large
bluefsh at 12 plus pounds can be found. It seems that the farther
north you go the more bait and fsh there are — also water
temps are a little cooler. There are lots of school size tuna from
Minot’s Light to the 21 Can.
Got a fsh tale to share? Send local fshing news, tidbits and
photos to Skip Cornell at skip@pembrokexpress.com.

A
few weeks ago, I was read-
ing after dinner and wishing
I had some yarn on hand and
a project to go along with it. How does
that old saying go — “Be careful what
you wish for,” or words to that effect?
The next day, I received some great
news that a cousin’s son and his wife
had delivered twins, a boy and a girl,
born prematurely, but doing just fne.
The day after that, I received the good
news from a friend that her daughter
and son-in-law had just given birth to
their frst child, a girl. Also, this same
friend’s son and his wife announced that they are expecting their
frst child in the fall. After digesting all the good news, I ran
right out to purchase several skeins of yarn in different colors.
By then, I was overwhelmed by the thought that I had more than
my share of projects to work on all at the same time — a baby
afghan for each of the three newborns and one for the baby that
is due in a few months. I am working madly and furiously to
complete all four afghans before the babies grow up and become
toddlers. Things usually work out, however, and I am happy and
relieved to report that at the present moment I have two of the
afghans almost completed and the other two already started.
And now let’s see what’s going on around town.

that,” Padula said. “It’s not
Baby-Sitters Club; it’s not
Sweet Valley High. I just felt
like kids really needed books
that were realistic to kind of
prepare them.”
Padula hopes to help fll
that gap with a series of nov-
els called “Montgomery Lake
High.” The frst in the series,
“The Right Person,” was re-
leased this month, published
by Connecticut-based Elo-
quent Books, part of Strategic
Publishing Group.
Padula started writing the
series when she was in high
school and rediscovered the
books after college.
“I read through them and
I was shocked that at such a
young age I knew what half the
stuff I wrote about was,” she
said. “I decided to edit them
and write additional books to
kind of connect them, to ex-
plain how one got to the other,
and added in bits of wisdom I
picked up along the way.”
She sent out query letters
to about 70 literary agencies,
found one interested in repre-
senting her and then shopped
the book around to publishers.
“I started sending out the
letters in January 2009 and
got an offer by October 2009
from a publisher. I felt like it
was forever, but evidently it
can take a lot longer than that.
I ended up signing with them
in November,” Padula said.
She is currently working
on the second book in the se-
ries and said in total she has
written fve — though she
doesn’t have plans to stop any-
time soon.
“I just want to keep writ-
ing. I want to know what hap-
pens next, because I don’t
know when I sit down what
I’m going to write but I know
my characters,” she said. “It’s
like watching a movie. You
can’t wait for the end.”
The frst book tells the story
of characters Chris Dunkin and
Courtney Angeletti (later books
center around other characters
at the fctional school).
“Chris is realizing he’s
kind of gotten in over his head
with partying at a young age
and it’s really affecting his
life. One day, he meets this
girl and he’s just drawn to
her, he just sees a light about
her. Something’s different and
he just wants to know what it
is,” Padula said. “Courtney,
the girl, had been raised as a
Christian and she’s very strong
in her faith and was able to not
get pulled into what Chris and
his friends are into. […] She’s
dealing with getting pulled
into high school and getting
to know Chris’ friends and
how all of a sudden she’s feel-
ing like she doesn’t ft in and
wanting to get accepted.”
Padula said the books do
follow a spiritual theme — the
author grew up attending St.
Thecla Church in Pembroke
and now attends New Hope
Church in Norwell — but that
it isn’t overwhelming.
“There’s a Christian mes-
sage to it, but not like a rig-
id, follow-the-law message
— more like the law of liberty
and love and pursuing a re-
lationship with Christ as op-
posed to following all these
rules thinking that’s going to
set you free,” she said.
Padula grew up in Pem-
broke, moving to Kingston her
sophomore year of high school.
After graduating from Silver
Lake, she attended Wentworth
Institute of Technology in
Boston where she studied ar-
chitecture and interior design,
temporarily putting her writing
on hold. After college, Padula
worked at an architecture frm
for several years but felt some-
thing was missing.
“I wanted to be doing
something that helped. I want-
ed to be more involved with
people and doing something
I felt was useful and utilizing
more of my talents and gifts,”
she said.
Padula got connected
with JBG Tutors, a company
that helps kids work on cer-
tain subjects and study for
tests like the SAT and ACT.
She recently was promoted
to program director when the
company expanded to JBG
Educational Group, now do-
ing career counseling and con-
sulting as well as tutoring. She
lives in Rockland and works
mainly in the Metro West area
of Boston, though the business
is starting to expand.
“I love my job. I literally
wake up every day and I can’t
believe I get paid to do this,”
Padula said. “It also leaves me
time to write.”
Padula’s frst book,
“Montgomery Lake High #1:
The Right Person,” is avail-
able now on amazon.com and
barnesandnoble.com. Even-
tually, it will be available in
whatever bookstores decide to
order it through the distributor,
Padula said.
She said she is open to the
idea of doing book signings
or speaking to kids at school
about her books.

THIS WEEK'S HINT
Q. Now that my pool water is clearing, I've noticed
some brownish stains on my pool surface, particu-
larly in the corners. What can I do?

A. These stains are caused by either iron or cop-
per in the water. Fortunately, there are products
available to help remove them. These products
will work on all surfaces - vinyl, fiberglass, plaster
and tile. One word of caution: you must follow
the usage directions for maximum effectiveness.

A visit with Sam Lathrop
go with my ‘Broadway roots’
and sing a musical theater piece
called ‘Larger Than Life’ from
‘My Favorite Year.’ I guess it
goes to show that you should
always be yourself.
How will the winner be
determined? On Saturday,
Aug. 28, Plymouth Idol will be
a part of the Downtown Plym-
outh Waterfront Festival. The
semifnals are from 12-2 p.m.,
where the judges will hear the
10 contestants sing and fve
will move on. Then the fnals
will be held from 2-4 p.m.,
where three contestants will
move on to see who will win.
I’ve heard that the judges’ de-
cision has a lot to do with the
audience, so I’m gonna need
crowd support!
How do you decide what
songs to sing in the competi-
tion? What kind of songs do
you like to sing best? I have
to choose three songs for this
competition. Since it’s on the
waterfront, I’ll probably choose
more upbeat songs to go along
with the fun atmosphere. At the
same time, I have to be com-
fortable with my choices. I’m
going to stick with the Groban
and Bublé style — it’s proven
to work in the past.
Where are the other fnal-
ists from? It’s funny because
I’m the only guy in the com-
petition, and the only one from
Pembroke. The other fnalists
are all from local towns. I
know one of them who goes
to Silver Lake Regional High
School and is going to be a se-
nior there this fall.
Was this the frst year
you participated in Plym-
outh Idol? Actually, it is not.
I tried out twice before, but I
guess something just clicked
this time — I went with my
gut instinct, after a lot of nag-
ging from Mama Lathrop, my
mom.
What does the winner
of Plymouth Idol receive?
What would it mean to you
to be named winner? Well,
the winner will receive 10
hours of professional studio
time at MDI and perform at
two events, the America’s
Hometown Thanksgiving Day
Parade and a 2010 Brockton
Rox Game on Sept. 1. It would
mean so much to win — I have
always wanted to record some
songs professionally, so this
is obviously a great opportu-
nity — and the winner also re-
ceives $500, which could help
pay for college books.
What are your post-
graduation plans? I will be
attending Bridgewater State
University with a major in mu-
sic, as well as juggling three
jobs, one of which includes
teaching acting classes at Boss
Academy in Hanson.
How did you frst get into
singing and performing? I
have been performing since I
was a little kid. It wasn’t un-
til sixth grade, when I started
attending Boss Academy of
Performing Arts, that I be-
came seriously interested in it
as a career. They gave me the
foundation and knowledge to
succeed in this crazy business.
Sam Lathrop, a 2010 Pembroke High School graduate and stu-
dent of Boss Academy of Performing Arts, will be singing for the
title of Plymouth Idol on Saturday, Aug. 28 during the Downtown
Plymouth Waterfront Festival. Lathrop recently was named one of
the top 10 finalists in the annual competition. Courtesy photo

Helping a friend in need
By Becca Manning, express staff
Becca@peMBrokexpress.coM
When her good friend was
diagnosed with aggressive
cancer early this year, Cher-
yl Grey knew she had to do
something to help.
Grey has known Alysa
Morrisette for about 30 years
and grew up just down the
street from Alysa’s husband
Bill, in the same neighbor-
hood where they all still live.
It was Grey who introduced
the couple, now married more
than 20 years, and now it’s
Grey — along with several
other friends — who is work-
ing to raise money to help the
Morrisettes through a diffcult
time.
“I just decided I wanted to
have a beneft for them,” Grey
said. “They’re the greatest
people. They’re the most giv-
ing people on earth. Now it’s
their turn to need.”
A beneft for Alysa and
Bill (known as BJ by many)
Morrisette will be held on Sat-
urday, Aug. 28 from 7 p.m. to
midnight at the Hanson AA,
171 Reed St., Hanson. The
event will feature food, kara-
oke and raffe items such as
gift certifcates to local restau-
rants and hair, nail and tanning
salons.
“It will be just a good time
with friends and family,” Grey
said.
Though she has posted fi-
ers around town, Grey said she
has not sold as many tickets as
she hoped and asks anyone in-
terested in helping the cause to
contact her.
Tickets cost $20 each and
are available in advance by
calling Grey or may be pur-
chased at the door.
Diagnosed in February
with an aggressive form of
breast cancer, Alysa has been
undergoing treatment locally.
She and her husband have
fve children, the youngest of
whom is 15, and have lived in
Pembroke for many years.
Alysa worked in retail
before her diagnosis but has
been unable to work recently,
Grey said. Bill works for the
Pembroke Housing Authority.
Money raised from the event
will help the Morrisettes with
medical expenses and other
needs.
“They’re just great peo-
ple,” Grey said of her friends.
“I think they deserve this.”
For tickets or more infor-
mation, call Grey at 781-831-
5849 or 781-293-5380.
Night out to benefit local woman battling cancer
Friends are planning a fundraiser to help Pembroke residents Bill
“BJ” Morrisette and his wife Alysa, who was diagnosed with an
aggressive form of cancer in February. Tickets cost $20 and are
available at the door or in advance by calling Cheryl Grey at 781-
831-5849 or 781-293-5380. Courtesy photo

Lifeguard
James Coner
makes a nice
save in the
water balloon
toss, part of
the 2010 Fun
Festival held
Saturday at the
Town Landing.
One of the pairs takes their balloon tossing seriously.
Bella Archambault, 2, teams up
with lifeguard Sarah Winn in the
water balloon toss.
Thirteen-month-old Leo
Cuscianna is not quite sure
about his role in the water bal-
loon toss.
Rachel Carlton, 7, competes in the paddle race.
American Legion Post 143 and friends have been offering up free
refreshments at the Fun Festival every year for about 30 years.
Those helping out Saturday included Legionnaires Dick Nickerson,
Lou Jordan, Don Kernan and incoming Post 143 Commander
Wayne Woodward as well as Ladies Auxiliary member Irma Wall
and volunteers Abby Hanson, Jess Wall and Victoria Proctor.
Teri Palma, 8 3/4, took first place overall and was
the top female swimmer in the Little Island race.
Jackson Saia, 10, took second place overall and
was the top male swimmer in the race.
Pembroke lifeguards Matt Merritt, Sarah Winn, Dana Rosner, Mellissa and
Samantha Collin and Sam and Cam Draper take a timeout from Fun Fest activi-
ties for a photo with Town Administrator Ed Thorne (that’s him in the wig and
Pirates cheerleader’s costume). This year’s Fun Fest was centered around a
sports theme.

Republican candidate for
State Auditor Mary Z. Con-
naughton was greeted by
an overfow crowd at “The
Grotto” at Orta’s Restaurant
in Pembroke on Thursday,
Aug. 6. The event was hosted
by Plymouth County Sherriff
Joseph McDonald Jr. and Dis-
trict Attorney Tim Cruz.
“Mary has our support,
and we want voters to know
that fnally we have a candi-
date that is actually a certifed
public accountant that is an
auditor running for the offce
of State Auditor,” Cruz said.
“People recognize the need to
have someone with qualifca-
tions looking after how their
hard-earned tax dollars are be-
ing spent.”
Connaughton is the only
CPA-trained auditor in the
race. She served as a toll pay-
er’s advocate while serving on
the Mass. Turnpike Authority
and is entering the race from
the private sector with the be-
lief that her credentials and
experience are the qualifca-
tions needed to ensure proper
oversight and accountability
to the taxpayer. The auditor
reports only to the people and
is responsible for assuring that
tax dollars are being spent ef-
fciently.
McDonald remarked: “We
have never had a CPA as our
state auditor, and I believe that
this independent offce will be
more productive in monitoring
abuse, advising on effcien-
cies and keeping the public in-
formed on government spend-
ing with a professional such as
Mary Z. Connaughton.”
For more information on
Connaughton or the auditor’s
role, visit maryforauditor.com.
Only Our Name Is Changing!

Now it’s time for us to take on the well-respected Columbia brand in Massachusetts. You will
soon be seeing Columbia Gas of Massachusetts replacing the Bay State Gas name. This proj-
ect should be completed by the end of the year.
Only our name is changing. Our employees, products, and services, and our commitment to
public safety and the safe, reliable delivery of natural gas to our 300,000 customers through-
out Massachusetts is unchanged. We’re confident that our customers and the public will very
quickly become as proud of our new name and logo as we are.
For more information about the name change, visit: www.ColumbiaGas.com
We’re proud to be part of the NiSource family of Columbia Gas companies

Pembroke Express – Your Hometown Newspaper!
q u e S T i O N O F T h e W e e k By vanessa phaM
What was your favorite book you read for the library’s summer program?
O
ver the past several weeks, I have seen several
articles from residents indicating concern and dis-
pleasure over the new center
plaza build-out. I have heard things
equating the new CVS to the size of the
Pyramids in Egypt. It is a monstrosity.
I have read about the destruction of the
historical nature of the center. While,
yes, the CVS is larger than we may have
expected, and this renovation means
change for the center, it also means
many jobs at a time when this commu-
nity and this area need them. These jobs
are important, and once completed the
new plaza will generate additional tax
revenue for the town. Yes, the new plaza
and especially the new CVS will take some getting used to, and
it will make our center look and even feel a bit different ini-
tially, but the town will be better off as a result of this change.
Seems to me, more than anything else, the renovation of
our town is creating a lot of aggravation, change and incon-
venience. It is like a major home renovation. That renovation
where your wife has no access to the kitchen or a bathroom for
about a month and is pulling her hair out and wanting to kill
you because it is taking far longer than it should (absolutely
no refection on this columnist’s wife, by the way). The plaza
is the renovation that makes the kids annoyed, whining and
grumpy, and no one in the house is happy. From this kitchen
nightmare comes new granite, more cabinet space, new ap-
pliances and a far more convenient lifestyle. Once done, the ag-
gravation of the past is forgotten and we all move on together.
Our town’s kitchen nightmare also will end, and the con-
venience of that behemoth CVS and new grocery will make
all our lives easier. But until then, the businesses down in the
plaza absolutely need your patronage. Far less beer, nails,
candy, fowers, pizza and manicures are being purchased down
there right now. These businesses are owned and employ our
neighbors. Each of these businesses will either need to close
or temporarily relocate for about two to three months in order
for the old plaza to be torn down. When this happens, they
will need to rely on the business done today in order to insure
they are viable going forward. Now is the time, Pembroke, to
patronize these businesses. Yes, the “organic” stone parking
spaces are a pain, but the Center Street entrance is back open
again and will make getting in and out far easier.
Let’s welcome the new center plaza with open arms.
Welcome the jobs, welcome the businesses, and welcome the
future conveniences. While I absolutely agree we need to pre-
serve our town character, this renovation is good for our town.
It is good economically both now and in the future. Whether
a supporter or not, please patronize these businesses. They are
our friends, neighbors and employers and the backbone of our
local economy.

W
hen we value
the individual,
racism doesn’t
work. In response to Mr.
Green’s letter [Opinion, Aug.
13], I must say that I cannot
agree more with his beliefs
about how pervasive racism is
in our lives and how it is an is-
sue that is promulgated in pol-
itics, news and entertainment.
However, where he goes awry
is when he uses his opinion
on racism to take a partisan
stance.
In classic political theory,
especially here in America,
racism is a tool used by both
sides of the political collec-
tive to demonize the other
side. That is without a doubt
true and, yes, both the left
and right are equally guilty of
these injustices. For the author
to write such a thoughtful let-
ter and then ruin his credibility
by not objectively pointing out
that racism is an affiction of
collectivism on both the right
and left is truly disheartening
The fact is, two wrongs do
not make a right and the solu-
tion to racism is not more rac-
ism. This is because we live in
a society where we demonize
the individual — and right-
fully so — for outward acts
of racism and bigotry toward
his or her common man. Yet
we respect institutional rac-
ism through government and
private charity that at its core
is nothing more than favorable
discrimination based on race.
Which by defnition is racism
This is because, at root,
racism is a form of collectiv-
ism, which is the belief that an
individual’s identity is deter-
mined by his un-chosen physi-
ological characteristics — and
not by his chosen values and
action. To this point, it does
not matter how the progres-
sives on the left ideologically
justify racism, because at its
core it is just as bad as the
individuals and organizations
on the right who use racism to
demonize that very same col-
lective.
The solution to racism in
America is to value the indi-
vidual and their rights over the
collective. The collective is
important because it helps us
as individuals understand our
shared history; however, the
moment we let our shared his-
tory defne us is when we be-
come divided. With that said, I
think my generation is begin-
ning to do just that: value the
individual.
I believe this shift will
take time, a long time, per-
haps maybe not even in my
own lifetime, but so long as
the established political sys-
tem and individuals such as
Mr. Green continue to use
racism as a tool for furthering
their agendas it only makes it
so much harder to move for-
ward. Because when we value
the individual over the collec-
tive, racism doesn’t work.

By karen proctor, express coluMnist
history@peMBrokexpress.coM
M
uch has been said
about the con-
struction going
on in Pembroke Center, posi-
tive and negative. This week’s
picture shows the area in earli-
er (and perhaps simpler) times.
It shows the corner of Center
and Mattakeesett streets. Note
the land surrounded by a stone
wall — today, this is the land
taken up by the shopping cen-
ter.
On the far right is the Jos-
selyn House, the present loca-
tion of the new CVS building.
It was built around 1836 by
Elisha Josselyn, son of El-
isha Keen Josselyn and Lydia
(Dwelley) Josselyn. The Jos-
selyn family had a proud and
long-time association with
the town of Pembroke as did
the Dwelley family. Elisha
Jr. married Abigail Standish
(from another family of some
note) in 1835. It was fairly
common in those days for the
new husband to build a house
for his wife and their new life
together or even for the par-
ents of a newlywed couple to
build a house for their children
and the future generations they
expected would follow.
According to Pembroke
Vital Records, Elisha Jr., who
was a mason by trade, and Abby
(as she liked to be known) had
four children, twins Edwin and
Adelaide and daughters Emma
and Delia. Delia died in 1849
of dysentery, at the age of one
year. Edwin married Helen Al-
len of Maine and had a son,
Fred, and two daughters, Fan-
ny and Rose. Adelaide never
married. Both Edwin and Ad-
elaide died in 1917. Emma
married William Bent and had
three daughters, Addie, Etta
and Lura.
True to the old tradition,
the house was home to sev-
eral generations of Josselyns.
In 1966, the property was sold
to the Henrich Company and
moved to its present location
at the corner of Center Street
and Erickson Road. The ac-
companying barn was moved
to Oldham Street to make way
for the new shopping plaza.
Across Center Street
from the Josselyn place was a
country or general store, frst
opened by Isaac Jennings and
called the Union Store. It was
later owned by Joseph Shep-
herd and James Wilkenson
and then by Ira Porter and then
Kenneth Henrich. The build-
ing burned in 1974.
Not seen in this photo is the
area known historically as the
old Burton Homestead, across
Mattakeesett Street from the
Josselyn place. The oldest part
of the homestead, which was
torn down to make way for the
new bank addition, was built
by Thomas Burton. The struc-
ture that remains today is said
to have been built about 1808
by Elisha Keen Josselyn, pa-
triarch of the above mentioned
families.
Perhaps the new shopping
center should be called Josse-
lyn Corners.

director for the Historical So-
ciety. For details about these

Congratulations to Samantha Lane (age 12), Fred Doyle, Brooks
Kelly and Chuck Crossley for correctly identifying this week’s mys-
tery picture as the corner of Center and Mattakeesett streets. In
the photograph, the old Josselyn House stands where the new
CVS building is being built. The house was moved to the corner
of Center and Erickson Way in the 1960s to make room for the
Pembroke Plaza. Photo courtesy of Pembroke historical Society

The commission had con-
tinued the hearing from Aug. 2
to allow project engineer Rick
Grady to prepare an alternate
design that moved the road fur-
ther away from the bog.
Grady showed the commis-
sion the new arrangement but
said it was not acceptable to
the developer because it would
mean losing one home lot.
Both Grady and wetlands
consultant John Zimmer said
the proposed design also would
better protect the wetland be-
cause it left more of a buffer
between the bog and any house
lots and provided a continuous
area of habitat.
“We do believe the road-
way in the presently proposed
location is the best location,”
Grady said.
The commission agreed.
Grady also agreed to the
commission’s request to in-
clude a 10-foot natural walk-
ing path along one of the lot
lines connecting the cul-de-sac
to Tubbs Meadow. The path
would be maintained by the
commission.
The idea of having the town
purchase the back two or three
lots along Tubbs Meadow with
CPA funds was brought up dur-
ing a discussion of conditions
for commission approval.
Commissioner Carey Day
said the commission would
like to be given frst refusal
on the back lots — giving the
town the option to buy the land
at a fair market price before of-
fering it up to potential home-
buyers.
Gosselin, who attended the
meeting Monday, said he was
not against the idea but that
the two sides would have to
sit down to consider what that
cost would be. He was not sure
about having the item be a con-
dition of approval but said he
would keep the option open.
He said having the town
purchase the land could “elim-
inate a lot of headaches” when
it comes to getting permits for
building homes there.
However, Gosselin also
said he had signed agreements
with potential buyers for at
least two of the back lots.
Conservation commission-
er Mark Ames said the CPA
process could take until the
spring Town Meeting but that
the board would try to get the
proposal in by fall.
“We can’t promise this is
going to happen, but it’s some-
thing we’d be willing to try,”
he told the developer.
The Conservation Com-
mission and environmental
consultants from Nover-Arm-
strong Associates also recom-
mended other conditions for
road approval, including:
• That the developer com-
plete paperwork and submit
information about three poten-
tial vernal pools — one on the
property and two on the edge
of the town-owned property
bordering the site — for cer-
tifcation through the Natural
Heritage and Endangered Spe-
cies Program;
• That there be no herbi-
cides, pesticides or road salt
used on and around the road-
way to prevent runoff into the
wetlands habitat;
• That the developer plant a
dense, 50-foot wide vegetative
barrier around the bog to keep
people out;
• That the developer limit
curbing with a steep vertical
drop within 100 feet of the bog
to allow free movement of ani-
mals such as turtles and frogs
across the property;
• And that the developer in-
stall a speed bump or wildlife
crossing signs at either end of
the cul-de-sac to remind resi-
dents to slow down.
Nover-Armstrong also rec-
ommended that the developer
consult a qualifed wildlife bi-
ologist for design, construction
and land management plans to
minimize the project’s envi-
ronmental impact.
Grady said he did not think
this was necessary and that he
would prefer to answer specifc
recommendations rather than
pay someone to further study
the site.
“I don’t think this is some-
thing the commission has ever
required of any other project,”
Grady said of the condition.
“It’s very vague and it could
be a black hole. […] Let’s be
specifc about what it is you’re
asking of us so we can respond
in a fair manner.”
He gave as example the
commission’s request that
they plant a vegetative buf-
fer around the bog, saying the
developer could “burn through
a few thousand dollars” doing
plantings or doing more re-
search and paperwork.
Grady also said he would
be willing to submit informa-
tion to certify the vernal pools
but said they would plan to do
so after permitting the individ-
ual house lots.
Residents who attended
the hearing Monday said they
appreciated the commission’s
efforts to protect local habitat,
though they did not want the
development to go forward.
“I don’t want to see any-
thing happen back there.
There’s too much wetlands.
The whole back half of that
property is littered with vernal
pools, bogs, ponds, wildlife,”
said Chris Newton, a Felicia
Terrace resident. “I think if
they can eliminate those three
back lots that border Tubbs
Meadow, that’s a great com-
promise.”
Edward Drive residents
Kevin and Beth McQuaid said
they weren’t expecting the
commission to recommend the
developer offer selling part of
the property to the town.
“It was a nice surprise,”
Beth McQuaid said after the
meeting.
The public hearing was
closed Monday, and an order
of conditions will be sent to
the developer to be signed.

Most elementary school
students wouldn’t relish the
chance to head back to school
during the summer months.
But campers at the Building
Character Through Sports pro-
gram at Bryantville Elemen-
tary School are not only hav-
ing fun, they are helping camp
leader Kevin Weldon raise
money for a good cause.
Weldon, a physical edu-
cation teacher at Bryantville,
started the four-week camp
as a nonproft program to
raise money for research into
macular degeneration, a dis-
ease that results in the loss
of central vision. There is no
treatment for the disease, and
Weldon said it is prominent in
his family, which caused him
to take action.
Weldon has run four Chi-
cago Marathons to raise money
for macular degeneration re-
search at Tufts Medical center,
and he is training for his ffth.
He got the idea for starting the
BCTS camp after running an
after-school program at Bry-
antville this year, and said it
has turned out better than he
expected for a frst attempt.
“I’ve been raising money
for about fve years now,”
Weldon said. “But I knew I
always wanted to run a camp.
I’ve been lucky and I’m thank-
ful to everyone who helped me
get this started and get non-
proft status, and I’m happy to
say we’re going to be sending
a nice check to Tufts.”
The camp consisted of two
Building Character Through
Sports camps and two Build-
ing Character Through Basket-
ball camps, each running for
one week. Weldon, a 17-year
basketball coach, devoted the
two basketball camps to teach-
ing the camp fundamentals
and the sports-themed weeks
to basic sport skills and team
games.
The overreaching goal of
both camps, Weldon said, was
to teach team-building, cama-
raderie and confdence.
“I saw it as a way to cre-
ate a program that focuses on
skills, but more on how to co-
operate and be a good team-
mate,” he said. “When they
recognize someone they didn’t
know three hours ago [for
their accomplishments during
the day], it creates comfort
and builds their confdence.
We usually have one girl ev-
ery week, and there has never
been a problem; the boys are
all respectful.”
While the camp took place
at Bryantville, Weldon said el-
ementary school students from
across town showed up to take
part in the camp over the dif-
ferent weeks, with some com-
ing back for more after their
week of camp was over.
“One guy has been here
all four weeks,” Weldon said.
“I’d like to think he is having
a good time.”
Weldon thanked Bry-
antville Elementary for let-
ting him run the camp out of
the school’s gymnasium and
also thanked the parents who
spread the word about his
camp across Pembroke. Wel-
don didn’t do much advertis-
ing this year because he was
focused on getting things up
and running, but he said he got
a good turnout based largely
on word of mouth.
“Parents have been happy
with the camp, and they have
really talked it up and sup-
ported it,” he said. “[Bryant-
ville principal] Dr. Catherine
Glaude and the staff also have
all been great and very accom-
modating.”
Weldon plans to keep a
buzz for the camp going dur-
ing the school year by continu-
ing to run his after-school pro-
gram. He hopes the camp will
be back at Bryantville next year
not only to raise more money
to fght macular degeneration,
but also because he said it was
just as enjoyable for him as it
was for the campers.
“I’m having more fun do-
ing this than I ever have,” he
said. “I’m hoping to continue
working throughout the school
year, and it would be great if it
grows next summer.”

Seventeen-year-old Pem-
broke skateboarder Nora Vas-
concellos has only been skat-
ing competitively for a little
over two years, but already she
is making a name for herself
in the biggest skateboarding
competition in the country.
Vasconcellos placed sixth
in the women’s vert compe-
tition at the 16th Summer X
Games in Los Angeles, Calif.
on July 30.
It Vasconcellos’ frst ap-
pearance in the X Games —an
achievement she said is the goal
for any professional skater.
“This is probably the most
talked-about event in skate-
boarding,” Vasconcellos said.
“I didn’t think it was attain-
able, then in the last year I saw
it as a real possibility. It was so
much fun. As a skateboarder,
it is a dream come true.”
Vasconcellos put together
a string of good performances
on her way to Los Angeles, in-
cluding fnishing second in the
2009 World Cup bowl rank-
ings and taking ffth in the vert
at this year’s Dew Tour Cham-
pionship at the TD Garden in
Boston.
At the X Games, howev-
er, Vasconcellos had to fght
through a little adversity after
taking a spill two days before
the fnals and bruising the heel
of her foot.
“I’ve never really had an
injury, so dealing with that
was very different for me,” she
said. “I felt like I skated OK,
but I had fun.”
Vasconcellos also thanked
the many Pembroke business-
es and residents that donated
to her cause and helped her
get to California, including
the Friends of the Pembroke
Skate Park, Peter Brown and
Tiny & Sons Glass.
“Everyone who pitched
in was amazing,” she said. “I
didn’t realize how many peo-
ple were interested in helping
me. It was unreal and I am so
thankful.”
Vasconcellos didn’t slow
down after the X Games, in-
stead spending the last week
at an action sports camp in
Pennsylvania. She plans to
skate in one more event before
winter, either the Vans Bowl in
Orange, Calif. or the Johnny
Romano classic in Houston,
Texas that helps the Make-A-
Wish Foundation.
