Paul Baldassari initially needed some coaxing from his wife Janice Parisi to explore the possibility of joining New England Fat Loss (NEFL). As many people experience, past efforts with weight loss programs were unsuccessful. He had tried Jennie Craig, Weight Watchers and the South Beach Diet, all with disappointing results. But Baldassari was open to a solution. Weighing 250 pounds and entering pre-diabetic stage, he needed a change that would help his overall health. The answer came with NEFL.
Sarah Hope has some definite goals for her sophomore season at Boston University.
The 5-foot-7 Hope, who finished her basketball career at Medway High as its all-time leading scorer with 1,228 points, wants the Terriers to be Patriot League champions and she’s eager to be more of a scoring threat whether she plays off-guard or at the point. As a freshman last year, Hope became a starter after nine games, averaged 6.4 points and led BU in three-point baskets (60).

I’m sure you will like her.

Franklin resident Albert Goodrow was a pharmacist mate in the Navy during World War II. He’s also a veteran of the Korean War, and this year, accompanied by his son, Fr. David Goodrow, of Millis, he got the chance to fly to Washington, D.C. to see “his” memorials. Thanks to Honor Flight New England, Goodrow is one of the nearly 1,100 WWII veterans, the oldest being 101 years old, who have been flown free of charge to the nation’s capitol.
Prior to each school year, Thanks To Yanks assists Operation Home Front with their Back to School Brigade by collecting items that have been donated at various Dollar Tree stores.
These items are then delivered to military bases and family readiness groups for distribution to children of our military.

Medway High School football players broke new ground for their season opener against Stoneham on Friday, September 19, playing on the newly installed synthetic turf, under lights at the Medway High School’s Joseph P. Hanlon Field. The finished field, one part of a three-part Athletic Field project the town approved in May, was rededicated at the game’s half-time, with Medway officials, school administrators and honored guest Joseph P. Hanlon and his family in attendance.
Medway’s Brett Marcinkiewicz has the right mindset to be a Tri-Valley League all-star in football this fall.
Marcinkiewicz, who will be starting his second season at cornerback for coach Dave McSweeney’s Mustangs, also plays on special teams, and he’s a good bet to see action as a wide receiver. The 5-foot-8, 165-pound senior may not be the biggest or fastest player on Medway’s roster, but his approach to the game is what makes him a breed apart.
