Southborough is approximately 15.7 square miles and as of 2010, had a population of 9,767. It is part of Worcester County and its form of government is Open Town Meeting. The town’s administration is comprised of a Town Administrator and an elected Board of Selectmen. First a part of Marlborough, Southborough was settled in 1660 and then formally incorporated as its own town in 1727. It was formerly a farming and then a light industrial town. Although it is now primarily considered a bedroom community, it does have some businesses, especially along Route 9.

It shares a public high school with Northborough and is also home to two private schools, St. Mark’s School and the Fay School.

Paul Ferguson coaches fifth-grader Logan Matthews as he skateboards around an obstacle course of cones.

Southborough – Students from Neary Elementary and Trottier Middle schools are learning a new skill while enjoying a fun workout by attending a five-week skateboarding class.

Offered by Southborough Recreation, the after-school program began Sept. 23 and will run through Oct. 21. Equally thrilled is its skateboarding instructor, Paul Ferguson, a 2012 Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) graduate.

S- Epilepsy Fundraiser cr

Southborough – According to the Epilepsy Foundation, absence seizures are caused by abnormal activity in a person’s brain and are characterized by a short period of “blanking out” or staring into space. This type of seizure is most common in children ages 4 to 14.

When Andrew and Melanie Harmon noticed their 6-year-old daughter Emily “spacing out” for a few seconds several times a day, they assumed that she was just thinking about something because she would return to the conversation or activity as if nothing happened. In August 2013, an EEG confirmed that Emily was experiencing absence seizures.
