Salisbury

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...

jenniferk@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — The scents of sunblock and charcoal vied for dominance Monday, July 4, at the town Grove. Cars spilled out of the parking lot and anyone arriving after noon found themselves forced to walk a couple of blocks from the nearest parking space.
“The head count is 1,400,” said Stacey Dodge, Grove manager. “This is the biggest year I’ve seen in more than 20 years.”

Park fireworks a hit

publisher@lakevillejournal.com

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.
This year, the weather cooperated with warm but comfortable temperatures and only a few clouds in the sky, making the “rain check” tickets handed out by volunteers to attendees superfluous.

Rain? What rain? It’s Project Troubador after all

SALISBURY — The 22nd annual Grove Festival proved that there was nothing that could deter loyal fans from a prompt start — not even heavy rains throughout the day before the 5 p.m. kickoff of the June 25 concert.
“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.
The clouds cleared, and by 6:25 p.m., the umbrellas closed and the picnic blankets unfurled.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The Board of Selectmen voted at a special meeting Friday, June 17, to apply for a $400,000 state grant on behalf of the Scoville Memorial Library.
The selectmen unanimously supported the library’s request to apply for a Small Town Economic Assistance Program grant. The plans are to put an addition on the rear of the building and change the entrance. “They want to get people off Route 44,” said First Selectman Curtis Rand.

A small crowd but fat, sassy trout

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The weekly Saturday hikes, sponsored by Peter Becks Village Store, got off to a modest start June 24, with hike leader George Rand leading a team of, well, no one except this reporter up the Race Brook trail in nearby Sheffield, Mass.
Rand, 29, has just completed his EMT training and works as a technician in the emergency room at Sharon Hospital.
A native of Salisbury, he said he took a National Outdoor Leadership School course a few years ago.
“But I’ve never really done anything with it.”

Lake dispute leads to talk of ending special permits

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The zoning text amendment prohibiting vertical expansion of nonconforming structures in the Lake Overlay Protection Zones was rejected by the Planning and Zoning Commission in a somewhat surprising meeting Tuesday, June 21.
The zoning text amendment, which began life last year as a petition from the Lake Wononscopomuc Association, would prohibit expansion of nonconforming homes in the Lake Protection Overlay Zone (which extends to 300 feet from the water) and eliminate the special permit process that currently governs such properties.

Turkey Watch

Thanksgiving is months away — which is perhaps the reason why so many families of turkeys are wandering area roads and fields. This group was spotted on Salmon Kill Road on Friday, June 24.
