Rochester Residents Vote “NO”

Residents vote down Rochester Town Hall Annex study

By Tanner Harding | Oct 17, 2016

Photo by: Tanner HardingResidents vote on an article at Fall Town Meeting.

ROCHESTER — As voters walked into Rochester Memorial School for Monday night’s Fall Town Meeting, they were handed a green sheet of paper urging them to “vote no on article 4.” And that’s what they did.

The fourth article on the agenda asked voters to transfer $20,000 to study options for the Town Hall and Town Hall Annex space issue.

The town’s departments have long outgrown the aged Town Hall and when it became too crowded, some departments moved into the Town Hall Annex. The annex, which is actually the Rochester Woman’s Club, costs the town $30,000 a year to lease.

To try and fix the space issue for town employees, the Town Hall Annex Committee has explored options such as renovating the current Town Hall, building an annex building, or building a bigger building that could function as both.

At a meeting in May, the committee decided the best course of action was to construct a new building on Dexter Lane that would fit all the departments. However, after a lot of pushback from residents about the cost, Chair of the Town Annex Committee Richard Cutler said at Monday’s Town Meeting that the committee isn’t endorsing any particular option anymore, and that members are willing to keep an open mind.

“Based on forums we’ve held, we are not making any recommendation tonight,” Cutler said. “That’s why we want to hire a professional. We’re not one hundred percent sure what the best option is.”

Resident Ben Bailey spoke up first and in favor of the project, saying he knows taxes are already high but that the working conditions for employees in both buildings are unsatisfactory.

He also said that spending the $20,000 for the study didn’t commit the town to continue moving forward, but could help the town get outside grants and funding.

“If we don’t have this study done when a grant comes up, we won’t get the grant,” he said. “This study is good for ten years. It’s nothing but something that opens doors for us.”

Other residents were not so optimistic.

“I think it’s a pipe dream to think we would get funding on any level,” resident David Eckert said. “This seems like an enormous waste of money, and the people advocating it need to go back to the drawing board. There are cheaper ways to deal with the problems.”

A couple of residents suggested building an annex to save money; however, Facilities Manager Andrew Daniel said that Town Hall still needs improvements.

“Just an annex is fine, but we need to make modifications to the present building for handicap accessibilities,” he said. “There’s no handicap bathroom. There’s a handicap ramp to nowhere. You get inside and can’t go anywhere, the doors aren’t wide enough.”

Cutler added that even if the town decided just to build an annex, it would still need to spend the $20,000 for the study due to state requirements.

Kristian Stoltenberg, chair of the Finance Committee, said that he thinks the Finance Committee should work with the Annex Committee to make a more detailed presentation for Annual Town Meeting.

“At the spring meeting we’ll have a better idea of where our budget will be,” he said. “I’d like to flesh out some issues from the financial side of it and get more input from the Finance Committee in the planning.”

Ultimately, residents voted 106-26 against the article.

Marion Police Department

Clown Sighting in Marion

Kids report clown lingering near Sippican School in Marion

By Georgia Sparling | Oct 13, 2016

MARION — Creepy clowns sightings are happening all over the country, and now they’ve made it to Marion.

On Wednesday afternoon, two Sippican School kids reported to police that they saw a clown in the ball field behind the Town House. Both children were on the same bus, and the reports were made after they got home.

“Whether they thought they saw something or they actually saw something somebody playing a prank, it is cause for concern,” said Lt. John Garcia of the Marion Police Department.

Police spoke with construction workers at the Marion Art Center who were working outside as well as others in the area, but none of them saw a clown. A search of streets in Marion Village also turned up nothing.

Garcia said this is the first report of anyone dressed as a clown in town, and that police will be in the Sippican School area over the next few days to keep an eye out.

He also said it’s not illegal to dress as a clown, unless it’s done with the intent of causing alarm.

“I suspect throughout the region it’s probably going to get a little worse between now and Halloween,” Garcia said of the clown sightings.

Buzzards Bay Coalition

Buzzards Bay Coalition Watershed Ride

Young Rochester cyclist pedals for Buzzards Bay

ROCHESTER — Fresh off completing her first 35-mile ride with the Buzzards Bay Coalition, 15-year-old Emma Keeler is already planning to come back next year – with friends.

The Rochester resident and Falmouth Academy sophomore participated in the annual Watershed Ride on Sunday to raise money for the Coalition’s efforts to protect the bay.

“I thought it would be great to raise awareness at my school, then next year more and more people will think, ‘maybe I should do it.’”” said Keeler.

Her parents, Russ and Wendy Keeler, have done the ride for many years, and it inspired their daughter.

“I thought there must be something really nice about it if they kept doing it,” Keeler said.

Over the summer Keeler trained with her parents in the Rochester area as well as on the Falmouth bike path, but she never did the full 35 miles.

Keeler also had to prepare by raising funds for the ride. Every rider must raise $300, which she admitted was a tough part of the preparation.

“My dad’s really up front and blunt about asking people. I don’t like doing that,” Keeler said.

She did get up the gumption to announce her ride during a school assembly and put out a box so the school community could donate to her ride. Her dad also sent out an email asking family, friends and acquaintances to donate to his daughter’s first ride.

“The health of this watershed is very important to us,” said Russ Keeler.

Their efforts paid off with Keeler in sixth place among individual fundraisers and a total of $2,004 in donations.

On Sunday, she finally took to the road for the Watershed Ride with her mom, cousin and uncle, while her dad did the 75-mile route.

Keeler said the ride went quickly, since she had family to chat with along the way.

Now that the ride is complete, Keeler is working on her peers at Falmouth Academy to have their own team next fall.

Keeler wasn’t the only top fundraiser from the tri-town. Gary Johnson of Mattapoisett was the ninth highest fundraiser with $1,725 in donations.

Overall, more than 150 cyclists rode in the event, which ended with a party at Wood’s Hole and raised almost $100,000.
