The heart of protecting free speech

SALISBURY — Law professor Nadine Strossen and federal Judge William F. Kuntz covered free speech, censorship and related issues in a freewheeling discussion at Noble Horizons on Sunday, Jan. 21.
Strossen was president of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1991 to 2008. Kuntz is a United States District Court judge, appointed in 2011.
And if the discussion seemed to be friendly and informal, it’s because the two met 40-odd years ago at Harvard Law School.

Saturday morning cartoons, Salisbury-style

SALISBURY — Donald Sosin and Joanna Seaton provided instruments and inspiration. A group of small children provided the enthusiasm. The result was highly entertaining.
It was Saturday morning, Jan. 13, at the Scoville Memorial Library. Sosin and Seaton, who make a specialty of providing musical accompaniment for silent movies, brought a wide variety of mostly percussion instruments for the children to use, plus Sosin’s electric piano.
