Now that Wellesley voters have approved a measure to allow retail sales of beer and wine, the Board of Selectmen will take on the yask of pinning down rules for the licenses it will dole out.
The regular board meeting starts at 7pm on Monday, March 10 at Town Hall, beginning with Citizen Speak. The board will have a public hearing on draft regulations about retail sales at 8pm. So if you have any special requests like seeing if Dunkin’ Donuts can sell beer-to-go with your treats or for local toy stores to sell wine-to-go with especially noisy toys, here’s your chance to have your voice heard.

The Wellesley Fire Department will be motoring to Rhode Island in its new Hummer — making its debut today — along with hundreds of other first responders to wish 7-year-old Tyler Seddon a happy birthday and to wish him good luck in his fight against a second case of leukemia. Wellesley Police sent a cruiser down for the event.
The boy’s mom had originally started a campaign to get first responders — of whom her son is a huge fan — to send her kid birthday cards. Things have taken off from there. More on Tyler’s cause.
Wellesley will soon gain a new hair salon, an outfit called Fulham Salon that already has a location in Newton on Beacon Street.
It looks like the Wellesley location will be called Fulham Salon Hair Workshop. It is setting up shop at 24 Grove St., a space that’s been vacant since late 2012, when vacuum cleaner business Aerus Electrolux was sucked out of town.
Fulham Salon in Newton is the brainchild of master stylist Igor Vasiljuk and William George, owner of James Joseph Salon on Newbury Street in Boston. Fulham Salon in Newton offers haircuts, root touch-ups, blow drying and you-name-it, with haircuts running from $35-$90 depending on what level of stylist you choose. Fulham also has locations in London and Belgrade.
Vasiljuk writes to us that the new salon “will be a different concept indeed. Interior-wise it will be very rustic wood and brick orientated. I noticed that salons in Wellesley look very alike, white, chrome and sterile. I wanted to bring a bit of my hometown of London UK to my new salon.”
He adds that this salon will be utilized as a spot for advanced training for hairdressers from around New England.
Wellesley has many beauty parlors, including Salon One, Lisa James Salon, Parlor Salon and more. Then again, it also has lots of heads of hair.

About 100 public and private middle and high school students from Wellesley earned regional prizes from the annual Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program. They will be honored at a ceremony this weekend in Boston orchestrated by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and winning works will be on display at City Hall in March.
National medals will be announced later this month.

We were honored to be invited to present about The Swellesley Report on Seminar Day this Wednesday at Wellesley High School. There were lots of great options for students to choose from, with topics including stories from a prison guard, how to tie a necktie and adventures at Mt. Everest base camp.
The students who attended our session asked excellent questions, so here’s hoping we got a glimpse at the next wave of good young journalists.
