        Uxbridge Coalition has a heart on the Common
  UXBRIDGE — The Uxbridge Coalition for a
Community of Caring helped beautify the
Town Common on Monday Feb. 13. Hearts
were hung on the trees by Uxbridge youth full
of messages of kind acts they’ve performed
recently. For more information about the
Coalition, go to and click
The Coalition tab on the left.

                                                                                                                                                                    Passerby Daisy Everett, 4, put a message in a heart

                                                               A slew of Uxbridge High students attempted to beautify a rather tall tree.

                     Valley Tech has heart
                       ,              ,
  UPTON — On Friday Feb. 3, faculty staff, and students at Blackstone Valley Tech
donned red attire to raise awareness and inspire action as part of 9th Annual
National Go Red for Women Day     .
  An initiative of the American Heart Association, Go Red for Women Day raises
awareness about heart disease, which kills more women each year than all forms
of cancer combined.
  The effort was coordinated by the School Based Health Center (SBHC), the Health
Services program, and the Practical Nursing program led by school nutrition edu-
cator, Martha Leary Pellegrino, RD, LDN, Kathy Ashe, MSN, RN, CNE, Practical
Nursing Director, and Michele Dafonte, School Based Health Center office coordi-
nator. The School Based Health Center at Valley Tech is a program of Milford
Regional Medical Center (MRMC). It is a collaborative effort between the school
and MRMC supporting existing school services to provide convenient and easily
accessible school based health care for students.
  The event took place during lunch periods and all staff was invited. Attendees
were encouraged to make healthy choices in their lives. A heart healthy dessert
was given to everyone in attendance and everyone wearing red was given a free “Go
Red” dress pin. Practical Nursing students and instructors conducted blood pres-
sure screenings, and there were raffles for prizes including a gym membership,
pedometers, and more. Health Service students were on hand to discuss the risks of
heart disease and Milford Regional Medical Center donated free giveaways. The
Culinary Arts program offered heart healthy lunch menu options in the Three
Seasons restaurant in support of the event including lime seared fish tacos, turkey
chili, and blackened salmon with pineapple salsa.
  “Symptoms of a heart attack are much milder in women,” stated Martha
Pellegrino. “A woman could be having a heart attack, and simply feel shortness of                                                                                                                  Courtesy photo

               BY MICHAEL CORSO

basketball team found themselves down, play-
ing lackadaisical basketball and producing
more turnovers than points in the first half
against Nipmuc on Feb. 11. Rams head coach
Al Ratcliffe considered it the “ugliest first
half ” he had seen in his four-year tenure with

vided a spark that ignited her squad.
  Trailing 18-14 with only seconds left in the
second quarter, Boucher knocked down a 3-
pointer from half-court that beat the halftime
buzzer and initiated a second half rally for the
Rams on their way to a 45-31 victory at
Veterans Memorial Field House.
  Boucher finished with a game high 19
points, while twin sister Sarah added 11
  “Offensively and defensively those two did
great in that second half,” said Ratcliffe about
the twin tandem. “At halftime I told the team
that ‘I need someone to snap out of it or else                                                           Nick Ethier photos

       WWE Hall of Famer headlines NHS wrestling event
  NORTHBRIDGE — World Wrestling
Entertainment Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim
Duggan headlined Northbridge High School’s
Big Time Wrestling show on Friday Feb. 10.
  The event, which was sponsored by
Imperial Cars, raised money for the NHS
Class of 2013 and was started by junior Erik
  “I do between three to five shows like this a
month,” said Duggan before the match. “Just
last weekend, I was in Booneville, Ark., and
next weekend I’m in New Iberia, La. There
are still a lot of people who are interested in
traditional wrestling. [WWE owner] Vince
[McMahon]’s product is a great product. I was
just at the Royal Rumble and there were more
than 19,000 people there and you can’t argue
with that kind of success. There is still a huge
market for shows like this in North America.
That’s never going away   .”
