Three candidates for two P&Z seats

SALISBURY — This election season, most candidates in most towns are running unopposed. One of the key races in Salisbury that is contested is Planning and Zoning, where three very experienced candidates are running for two seats. 
There are five elected members of the Planning and Zoning Commission and three elected alternates. The alternates are elected every two years, but the regular members have “staggered” four-year terms, so that the entire commission never turns over all at once.

SALISBURY — A mural, two years in the making, was unveiled at the Salisbury Congregational Church in the parish hall, after services on Sunday, Oct. 20.

Compass arts and entertainment Editor Anne Day was hiking in Lakeville near The Hotchkiss School last Monday, Oct. 14, when she spotted a beaver swimming across a small pond.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) notes that beavers can be seen as either beneficial or a nuisance. Humans object to them cutting down trees and creating floods.
