WILMINGTON, MA — At Monday night’s Board of Selectmen Meeting, Town Manager Jeff Hull provided an update on the town’s search for its next Finance Director/Town Accountant.The search has faced some challenges as one of the two original finalists withdrew her name. The screening committee then decided to re-advertise the position to seek additional applicants.“It’s a real struggle in Massachusetts to get individuals who are qualified in municipal finance positions,” began Hull. “The fact that we had only 11 applicants during the first go around and 9 applicants the second time, many having no experience, just goes to show you the challenge we face in replacing some of these key positions.”The screening committee — which consist of the soon-to-be-retiring Town Account Mike Morris, Town Manager Jeff Hull, Assistant Town Manager Kerry Colburn-Dion, and Selectman Jonathan Eaton — identified two finalists.The two finalists are Jennifer Finnegan — who currently serves as the Town Treasurer/Collector for the Town of Tyngsboro — and Bryan Perry — who currently serves as the City Auditor for Lowell.Selectmen will interview both candidates on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, beginning at 6:15pm, in Town Hall’s Room 9. The interviews are open to the public. The interviews will be telecast live by Wilmington Community Television on Channel 9 on Comcast and Channel 37 on Verizon. The meeting will also be streamed on WCTV’s website HERE.Selectmen will then hold a special meeting on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7pm at Town Hall to make the appointment.“Mike Morris’s last day is July 12. He has agreed to provide some assistsance on a limited basis thereafter,” said Hull. “Clearly, we want to have someone on board as soon as possible. Being able to speak with him and have his help during the transition is going to be key. The applicant is likely going to have to give 3-4 weeks notice to their employer.”“It’s imperative that we move as quickly as we can add,” added Selectman Jonathan Eaton. “The two finalists we have are both very capable of the position.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

The game, which is the sixth best-selling PS4 title, came out in September, so it’s cool that developer Insomniac Games is still adding stuff.You can swap costumes once you get to the point where Spidey starts wearing the Advanced Suit, the one with the white spider. Tuesday’s update then lets you swing around virtual Manhattan in the Upgraded Suit or the Stealth Suit.So you can see the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, read our postcredits scene explainer, consider how it all impacts MCU’s upcoming Phase 4 and check out the costumes in the game. The game, by the way, takes place in a separate continuity to the MCU.You also get the Stealth Suit as part of the free download. Sony “While we’re busy working away here at Insomniac Games, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to once again team up with Sony Interactive Entertainment, Marvel, and Sony Pictures Entertainment to celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home,” James Stevenson, Insomniac community director, said Tuesday in a blog post.These aren’t the first movie costumes we’ve seen in the game: The Homemade and Stark suits (seen in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming) and the Iron Spider armor (from Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame) were in the game at launch. The suit Peter Parker wore in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was added since then, as was the one from the Sam Raimi trilogy.
REISTERSTOWN, Md. — The Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) continues to monitor Hurricane Irma and additional tropical weather systems in the Atlantic. While it is still too early to know what impacts, if any, that Irma may have on Maryland next week, residents should prepare now.In this geocolor GOES-16 satellite image taken Thursday, Sep. 7, 2017, at 11;15 a.m. EDT, shows the eye Hurricane Irma just north of the island of Hispaniola.

As always, Maryland stands ready to support our friends and neighbors in states that will be dealing with the impacts from this major hurricane first.”In addition to continuous communication with the National Weather Service, MEMA is coordinating with local emergency management offices and state partners to ensure that they have the information and resources they need to respond.“Hurricane tracks can shift quickly,” said Russ Strickland, Executive Director of MEMA. “Everyone in our area should regularly check forecasts, build an emergency kit, and always listen to the directions of local officials.”Before a storm, residents and visitors in Maryland can:Prepare an emergency kit and create a family communications plan. Good supplies to have on hand include bottled water and non-perishable food, a battery-operated radio, flashlight, extra batteries, toiletries, and copies of important documents.Check to see if you are in a flood-prone area on our website: mema.maryland.gov.Communicate with friends, family members, and neighbors and make sure that they are up to date with the latest information and weather forecast.
