CUMBERLAND â€” Now that he's decided where he will attend college, Cumberland High senior pitcher Justin Patrick â€“ a 6-5, 205-pound righty â€“ just wants to focus on the next task at hand: Helping the Clippers to an outstanding Division I-North campaign and securing a playoff berth later this spring.
â€śI personally think we can get to states this year,â€ť Patrick stated Thursday afternoon as he relaxed inside the school's Wellness Center. â€śThe last couple of years, we played OK as a team, but I don't feel we reached our potential.
CUMBERLAND â€” The firm hired by the town last year to consult on a fire department merger study revealed some of its findings to the Town Council Wednesday as well as a glimpse of what it plans to eventually recommend when it submits its final report to the council in the fall.
Donald I. Jacobs, of Holden-based D.I. Jacobs Management Consulting Services, gave the council a 30-minute update on the progress of a comprehensive feasibility planning assessment for the purpose of consolidating the town's fire services as either an independent, municipal or regional department.
