Malloy recommends joining Shrewsbury, Grafton and Northborough to 'fully comply' with a state law.
Westborough should join the veterans services district being discussed by Shrewsbury, Northborough and Grafton, Town Manager Jim Malloy recommended to selectmen Tuesday night. Attorney General Martha Coakley wants communities to “fully comply” with the state law requiring “every community over 12,000 to have a full-time veterans agent,” Malloy said. Communities in veterans services districts share a full-time veterans agent. “Westborough, even though we have two part-time veterans agents, doesn’t really comply with the law,” Malloy said. Selectmen Denny Drewry and Timothy Dodd said they’d like to discuss the idea further. “I support the concept. But to rush to make a decision that doesn’t have to be made for several months, in my humble …

Wait, is that the freshmen team or the JV team?
When the freshman football team from Algonquin Regional High School arrived in Westborough on Saturday, the players were prepared to take on the Westborough High School freshman team. About halfway through the 10 a.m. game, a little problem was discovered. The team was playing the Westborough High School junior varsity players, not the freshmen. Whoops! The compromise was to have the two junior varsity teams play a game and then have the two freshmen teams pair up to play a half game. Westborough Patch photojournalist Sue Wambolt captured the mix-up in photos. Have photos from the games? Add them to this collection!

Many Northborough area residents walk, hike and bring their dogs to Lake Chauncy, bringing concern recently when the lake was considered unsafe. The Westborough Board of Health (BOH) issued a statement on Wednesday, Oct. 12, saying that the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) lifted a public health advisory for cyanobacteria (blue-green algae bloom) in Lake Chauncy. “Two consecutive weeks of water samples taken by the Department of Public Health showed cyanobacteria levels to be below state guideline levels,” the statement read.

Don't drink the water, health officials say. Northborough resident worried about the many dogs who visit the lake area.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) issued a public health advisory for cyanobacteria in Lake Chauncy. “The algae bloom has the appearance of pea soup and is capable of producing toxins that can be dangerous to humans and pets,” read a statement from the Westborough Board of Health (BOH). According to the Centers for Disease Control, cyanobacteria is also known as blue-green algae. They are usually too small to be seen, but can sometimes form visible colonies. When that happens, the water becomes cloudy, the algae usually floats to the surface and can be many inches thick. People and pets should avoid contact with the algae. Avoid swallowing the water. Rinse off after any contact. Northborough Patch reader and town …
