SALISBURY — The Scoville Memorial Library celebrated the Chinese New Year on Saturday, Feb. 17, a day after the official beginning of the Year of the Dog. 

It may have been a day late, but the library made up for it with lots of color — specifically red, the color of good fortune and a decorative mainstay of the festivities for the new year. 

China’s New Year is based on what’s called the lunisolar calendar. It marks the passage of time by the phases of the moon, beginning each new month with the new, or dark, moon. The first day of the new...

Ice is out. Honest

Lake Wononscopomuc’s Official Ice Watcher

LAKEVILLE — Finally! The surface of Lake Wononscopomuc was completely ice-free as of the evening of Tuesday, April 5.
A month ago the ice began to soften, but the recent cold weather, especially the nights, caused the ice to hang on — despite some heavy winds.
However, the slightly warmer temperatures and rain this past week finally did the trick.
Ice in was Dec. 30, so the number of days the lake was completely covered in ice comes to 96. This is somewhat more than the average of the last decade.
The latest date for ice out that I am aware of is April 13, about eight years ago.

Town considers trash service switch

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The time to make a decision on whether to enter into a contract with the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA) is drawing near and other options are being discussed. CRRA takes the town’s garbage from the transfer station the town pays a fee per pound.
As part of that process, the Transfer Station and Recycling Advisory Committee (which oversees the current Salisbury-Sharon transfer station) is now looking at how the two towns stack up in recycling compared to other municipalities.

‘It’s amazing how much we do online now’

The day the Internet konked out
patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — Businesses, town government offices and just plain folks all scrambled to find ways to make do without the worldwide web when a Comcast failure last Tuesday caused the loss of Internet and Comcast telephone service in Salisbury, Sharon, Falls Village, North Canaan and Norfolk from roughly 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Cellphone service was unaffected, and that was ultimately what David Maffucci of Lake-ville’s Visionary Computer had to resort to.
“I was standing in the back of my office where I can get a signal, trying to answer email with my phone,” he said.

SALISBURY — The Board of Selectmen gave First Selectman Curtis Rand the go-ahead to draft a letter of support for Lime Rock Park’s application for National Historic Landmark status from the U.S. Park Service at the regular monthly meeting Monday, April 4.
In response to a concern raised by the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z), the selectmen agreed the the letter should contain language that makes the selectmen’s endorsement conditional on the ability of a future owner of the property to have the designation dropped.

Kelsey, currently a visiting professor at Williams College, is the Shirley Carter Burden Professor of Photography in Harvard’s Department of History of Art and Architecture. Yet Kelsey followed an unusual, almost eccentric path to obtain that august title.
