Salisbury

SALISBURY — Horace Holley was mentioned in letters by U.S. presidents. He was a prominent clergyman in Boston, and he was the major figure in American higher education in the pre-Civil War American West.

“He was the most significantly insignificant person in American history,” declared James P. Cousins, professor of history at Western Michigan University and author of “Horace Holley: Transylvania University and the Making of Liberal Education in the Early American Republic.”

Cousins spoke at the Scoville Memorial Library on Saturday, April...

Lockup owners address claims

From the beginning, The Lockup was the subject of stories and speculation. The Main Street Salisbury restaurant was set to open in a space that had primarily been used as a clothing store, and its long renovation through a seemingly endless summer of 2016 was as public an affair as possible. 
Pedestrians peeked in through the windows, watched the workers, and by autumn, it seemed anyone inquisitive enough to fully stick their head in the door was happily given a full tour, weeks ahead of the Thanksgiving Day grand opening.

Funds needed for new SVAS ambulance

SALISBURY
The Salisbury Volunteer Ambulance Service (SVAS) has started a “Campaign for a New Ambulance.”
The SVAS volunteers want to buy a new ambulance on a Ford F-450 chassis. The price is steep: $250,000.
The ambulance that SVAS wishes to replace is 20 years old, does not meet new state standards, and lacks updated technology.
And, according to Pat Barton, the SVAS chief of service, the undercarriage is rusty.
“Nobody wants to be Fred Flintstone,” she said in an interview on Saturday, Feb. 11.

What to do with those pesky plastic bags

Salisbury-Sharon Transfer Station Manager Brian Bartram told the Salisbury Board of Selectmen that 14 large blue containers for recyclable materials will be placed in public locations in the two towns for “public recycling.”
Bartram came to the meeting Monday, Feb. 6, to talk about recycling.
First Selectman Curtis Rand, armed with a grocery bag full of garbage, lifted the items out one at a time and asked Bartram where they go at the transfer station.

What to wear to watch winter sports?

Who watches the ski jump watchers? And what do they wear to stay warm? While the young ski jumpers who risk life and limb to fling themselves through the air were the advertised draw at the Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s 91st annual Jumpfest at  Satre Hill, the social scene that spread out across the spectator section could not be overlooked.

Cooking up the perfect meal

Couple’s opting to stay in this Valentine’s Day and experiment in the kitchen might want to plan ahead with two different opportunities to expand their culinary repertoire.
On Saturday morning, Feb. 11, at 10 a.m. The Lockup’s executive chef, Kevin Daley, will be taking over the Scoville Memorial Library to show how to make knife-cut fettuccine with bolognese sauce.

Dark arts* *or how to make heart-healthy farro taste really, really good

Up until last week, I had successfully avoided eating the new “it” grain of the moment: farro.
There’s nothing wrong with farro, if you like crunchy, nutty foods (and I do). I just didn’t need to have it in a salad. 
The Lockup restaurant in Salisbury enticed me over into the farro camp with their new portmanteau dish, which Executive Chef Kevin Daley named “farrotto,” because it’s farro cooked in the style of risotto.

Art teacher is a first-prize artist

Indian Mountain School art competition organizer and curator Sam Posey had worried a few weeks ago that perhaps the show had outlived its once-fresh appeal, and that there would be little new interest in the 2017 show. 
On Thursday, Feb. 2, he was able to put those fears to rest. The opening for Indian Mountain’s “Main Street”show was the best-attended since the the Student Center art gallery was inaugurated with the first competition in 2014.
