After hearing from youth advocates about the dangers of legalizing marijuana as medicine and how it will affect Medfield's youth, one selectman urges the other to take a public stand on the issue.
The Board of Selectmen had a heated discussion Tuesday night about the marijuana-as-medicine issue that is on next month's voting ballot. Youth advocates told the board Tuesday night that, if Ballot Question No. 3 passes at the ballot box next month and access to marijuana becomes legal, it would pose a great risk to Medfield youth. After being presented with information from Superintendent of Medfield Schools Robert Maguire, Medfield Chief of Police Robert Meaney Jr., and substance abuse counselor Carol Read, selectman Osler "Pete" Peterson proposed a motion that said the town of Medfield opposes Question No. 3, however, selectman Ann Thompson would not second the motion.

Medfield Board of Selectmen chair Osler Peterson posted on his blog, Medfield 02052, the town was reimbursed $64,386.90 for winter storm costs by FEMA.
The town of Medfield received $64,386.90 from FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Monday, per Mike Sullivan. It represents reimbursement of 75 percent of eligible costs for the winter snowstorm. We have not heard yet whether Norfolk County qualifies for reimbursement for Tropical Storm Irene. The money to fund FEMA is being held up by a fight in Congress over how to fund it, so we probably won’t hear for some time. Donna Cimeno and Joy Ricciuto put a lot of time into this and did a great job in gathering the required information, per Sullivan. Kudos and thanks to Donna and Joy.

Medfield resident Jerry Cianciolo shows town selectman chair Osler "Pete" Peterson support for "monitoring the way the town spends its money" in a Letter to the Editor.
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Editor's Note: This Letter to the Editor was directed to Medfield Selectman chair Osler "Pete" Peterson. Dear Mr. Peterson, As one resident of Medfield, I appreciate and applaud your monitoring the way our town spends its money. Your evaluation of the recent town garage override struck me as solid. The same with your questioning the merits of MEMO receiving town services for free, especially when it appears the group has the money to reimburse the town. No doubt you’ll get your share of flak for calling it as you see it – you already have. But with you as a selectman, my level of confidence is considerably raised and I not only feel you’ll guard against excesses but you’ll be reasonable and open along the way. If all of those in town …
