She calls them “towers.” They are blocks of wood placed on tree stumps and adorned in various ways.

New units replace 86-year-old Salisbury Central windows

SALISBURY — New windows are being put into the lower building and cafeteria of Salisbury Central School. The windows on the lower building were installed when it was built, in 1925.
The windows are being replaced because of air leakage, lead paint and asbestos. A total of 88 windows are to be replaced.
The new windows are made from aluminum and wood and are double paned for energy efficiency. The windows are to be finished by mid-August, before school starts.

LIME ROCK — Carloads of people from all over the Tri-state region converged at Lime Rock Park Saturday, July 2, to see and hear the fireworks display. Sponsored by The Salisbury Rotary Club, any profits from the proceeds benefit the club’s scholarship fund.

“It is amazing that we have this faithful crowd that comes out to support us regardless,” said Louise Lindenmeyr, executive director of Project Troubador, the organization behind the festival.
