A Wrentham resident and local culinary legend is facing a daunting medical battle and his friends are trying to help. Richard DiNozzi, a.k.a. “Diz” or “Dino," might be best known in these parts for being an early partner in the Eagle Brook Saloon, but for others he is known as a close friend with a big heart. A man whose table, either at home or in his restaurant, was open to everyone. Now he is faced with a diagnosis of stage IV colon cancer. The diagnosis has brought seven months of chemo treatments and added financial stress.
On November 4, 2014, Massachusetts will conduct its General Election. Within that election, Wrentham will conduct a Special Election where voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballot to adopt or reject a town charter for Wrentham.
Bringing a town charter to a ballot question for Wrentham has been more than a two year effort. In the spring of 2012 the Wrentham Board of Selectmen (BOS) formed a Town Government Study Committee (TGSC) and gave them the charge to “evaluate the effectiveness of the town’s organizational structure, management systems and processes”.
