Devlin Patton Aijin Ih

Patti Hartigan and Bennet Ih of Cross Street announce the arrival of their son, Devlin Patton Aijin Ih, who was born kicking on July 21 at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. Devlin was welcomed warmly by his brother, Aidan, and his sister, Marisa.

Tom Guyer, Sr. of Acton Street was thrilled when he was picked as one of the monthly winners in the Aircraft and Pilot's Association's (AOPA's) Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes. He told everyone at his home airport about it. Unfortunately, he passed away on February 22 before he could take his flight. But AOPA made special arrangements for his son and fellow AOPA member, Tom, Jr., to take his father's dream flight.

Guyer traveled from his home in Bolton, Massachusetts, to Sedona, Arizona, home of Red Rock Biplanes, for a chance to experience the wind-in-your-hair sensation of open-cockpit biplane flying first hand.

"It was a fantastic trip," said Guyer. "My dad loved to fly. He started back in the '50s when he was a teenager. He retired from Delta Airlines several years ago and told me that he was a very fortunate man. He was able to do something that he loved to do and even got paid for it!"

Brendon Hedblom of Maple Street, catcher for Lightning Baseball of New England, recently returned from the under-13 AAU National Tournament held in Kinston, North Carolina. The team advanced to the top 24 seeded team bracket and were one game away from advancing to the top 12 in the tournament.

As the starting catcher, Hedblom caught all five games to help Lightning win the under-13 AAU State Championship to qualify for the nationals and caught five of the six games in Kinston.

The team started working together in October, training throughout the winter at Extra Innings, an indoor facility in Middleton. Training sessions, Thursday through Sunday, included indoor training, clinics, outdoor practices, and games with regional teams. The team finished first with a 15-1 record during the regular season. Hedblom ended the season by competing in the first NEAAU Baseball All Star Tournament at Johnston Memorial Park, in Johnston, Rhode Island.

Katrina Przjemski of Bedford Road, a senior at Vassar College, was one of 80 students nationwide to receive the Morris K. Udall Scholarship.

The Udall Scholars were selected on the basis of academic merit and were nominated by the faculties of colleges and universities nationwide. Seventy-four scholars are in fields related to the environment, four in health care, and two in tribal public policy.

The one-year scholarship will help to cover the cost of tuition, fees, books and room and board up to a maximum of $5,000. As part of the scholarship, all 80 students were obligated to attend the Udall Scholar Orientation in August in Tucson, Arizon.

Katrina's sister, Karina, earned a place on the dean's list of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, of Johns Hopkins University for the spring 2003 term.

Kylie Duff of North Road and Mary Roberts of North Road were featured in a Boston Globe Northwest article on August 21 entitled "Freshman elective: dorm room feng shui." Globe staff reporter, Erica Noonan called Mary when she saw a flyer for the Dorm Chi classes at the Gleason Library in early August. Dorm Chi helps high school and college students reach their goals through the design and arrangement of their living spaces.

CCHS freshmen Dan Canina of Martin Street and Alex Van Leer of Hutchins Road were chosen as co-captains of the freshman football team.

Enio, Julio and Stacy Velazco of Woodland Road will be raising funds for cancer research when they walk in the 15th Annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk on Sunday, September 21.
