LAKEVILLE — The Salisbury Republican Town Committee (RTC) honored organizations that serve Salisbury, at a corn roast at the Grove on Sunday, Sept. 15.

Salisbury RTC Chairman Tom Morrison said the committee tried to make a comprehensive list. “I suspect we didn’t get everyone.”

The RTC has five candidates on the November ballot, and they were among the presenters. However, the politicking was kept to a minimum, the better to concentrate on the awards and the corn.

The corn was roasted on the spot by Ken Beneke of Willowbrook Farm in Millerton...

Hoo me?

Compass Arts And Entertainment Editor Anne Day spied this barred owl as she drove up her road in Salisbury on Saturday, Jan. 19. The owl sat calmly and waited as Day pulled out a long-lensed camera and took multiple photos. Even though her dog, Lola, was barking fiercely from the back seat, the owl maintained its calm demeanor, and didn’t move even after she got out of the car to get closer.
