Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo and video of the day.
In this week’s Independent Thoughts, as we put the cap on 2022, we present 10 stories from the past 12 months that qualified as “Yikes” moments — from a loose bull to Main Street construction traffic.
Hopkinton resident Sharon Carter was re-sentenced Tuesday to 5 months in prison and a year of supervised release for conspiring to defraud the Food and Drug Administration, based on her work at the New England Compounding Center, which was blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak 10 years ago.
The latest Police Log includes one arrest following a vehicle crashing on West Main Street, along with reports of a car striking a deer and a parent locking himself out his home with his 2-year-old inside.
This fall, a trio of students at Hopkinton High School launched a composting program to address the problem of food waste in the school cafeteria. Now others are hoping it could be the impetus toward more town-wide awareness.
Hopkinton High School girls basketball fans will notice quite a few new faces on the floor this season. The team graduated six seniors who played the lion’s share of the minutes last winter. What this year’s team lacks in experience, so far it has made up in effort.
This week’s Hiller’s Thrillers Athlete Spotlight shines on cheerleader Sophia Dellacioppa, who never stopped supporting her teammates after suffering a season-ending injury.
Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30), Community Preservation Committee (7) and School Committee (7).
