Medfield over Easton in Walpole Tourney Championship.
The following ran in the Easton Patch on Feb. 21, 2013. The Oliver Ames girls' basketball team went into Wednesday night's Walpole Tournament championship game facing one final test before the Massachusetts State Tournament. They were certainly tested in more ways than one. A scrappy and relentless Medfield squad stood in the way of Oliver Ames heading into the state tournament unbeaten. The Warriors won the back-and-forth game, 61-55. The Tigers dropped to 18-1 overall. "It’s really too bad that somebody had to lose this game," Oliver Ames coach Elaine Clement-Holbrook said. "That’s just the way it goes. It’s not one of those things where everyone gets a trophy and everyone is smiling." The game was a rematch of last year's Walpole …

A weekly column by Town Historian Richard DeSorgher. This week focuses on the closing of Lords and its colorful 73 year history in Medfield.
It is a landmark that is clearly identified with Medfield. It has been a part of the town’s heart and soul for just shy of 73 years. It is one of the last remaining Mom and Pop holdouts in this age of the big box stores. It is testimony to a family business that loved their hometown, operated on loyalty and the handshake, and taught their employees the values of hard work by example. It is, of course, Lord's Department Store and it is about to be sold and become a colorful part of Medfield’s very rich history. While the name of the store is Lord's, it is clearly the Kelly family that has made the store the institution that it is.
