Region Roundup: Center School Principal Retires, Route 123 Driver Pronounced Dead, Brown Joins Fox [And More..]
A look at what is happening around the region.
Center School Principal Debbie Dicenso will retire after this year.
The announcement came at a school committee meeting last week in which Committee Chair Jane Martin read a letter from Dicenso to the rest of the committee.

Dicenso has been the principal of Center School for the past nine years. Prior to that, she spent 27 years as a teacher in the Stoughton school system.
The Mansfield Board of Selectmen voted 5-0 last night to have a public hearing and accept a report by animal control concerning a complaint filed about a vicious dog attack.
The public hearing will take place on February 27 as recommended by Town Manager William Ross to leave time to give notice and advertise the hearing.
Filed by the lawyer of Dawn Herbert-Miller, the complaint from January 3 stems from a dog attack on Herber-Miller’s six year old son.
The bites from the dog reportedly left the child in such sever damage that he needed over 400 stitches, surgery, and ongoing treatment.

William Lozeau, of Norton, was pronounced dead at Sturdy Memorial Hospital Tuesday following an accident on Route 123.
The 50-year-old W. Main Street resident hit a town plow truck head on near St. Mary's Church. The driver of the plow, Rhode Island resident George Guptill, was travelling in the eastbound lane when Lozeau came from the opposite direction into that lane.
The accident caused the road to be closed for an hour and a half. The cause of the collision is under investigation.
