Consigli Construction and Hillview Equipment, both based in Milford, have contributed $15,000 to Milford High School for new weight machines.
The weight training room at Milford High School has five new machines and 30 new plates, thanks to the generosity of two construction related companies based in Milford. Consigli Construction and Hillview Equipment paired up to present $15,000 to the high school for the weight machines, a gift accepted last week by the Milford School Committee. The equipment purchased includes five new weight machines, which will create 10 work stations for student athletes, 20 45-pound weight discs and 10 25-pound weight discs. The new equipment replaces a smaller number of dated machines, and will allow more athletes to use the facility at the same time, said Chris LeBlanc, the strength and conditioning coach for the high school.

Thankful at news of an arrest, a Milford runner who has run repeated Boston Marathons said he will return.
Ken Poole, 72, has run 17 Boston Marathons, including on Monday, when he was stopped less than a mile from the finish when authorities stopped the race. On Saturday, thankful that authorities had arrested the second of two accused bombers, Poole said he would run Boston again next year. And he expects the crowds will be bigger, in a show of support for the race. In 2001, he ran the Chicago Marathon four weeks after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He had run that race eight times before, and expected a small crowd. Instead, it was the biggest one he'd seen. The same thing will happen in Boston in 2014. "I think you're going to see the biggest marathon yet."

Georgeann Compagnone, one of 19 runners from Milford in this year's Boston Marathon, was a mile from the finish line when the first of two bombs exploded. She didn't hear the explosions, because she had her earphones on. What she saw stopped her: up from behind her, several Boston Police and FBI cruisers racing toward the finish, and then "a wall of cops" running across the road, stopping the runners coming up behind and beside her. Then everyone was scattered. "It was like the end of the world for a moment," she said. The explosions killed three people and injured more than 100 others near the finish line in the Back Bay neighborhood, according to Boston.com. Compagnone was running in her 9th Boston Marathon. It was one of her fastest, …
