SALISBURY – Tonya Roussis is the new director of the Housatonic Child Care Center (HCCC).

Actually, she’s not that new, having started the job on Nov. 28, 2016.

Roussis ran a home day care in North Canaan for 10 years, and then was the head teacher at the Canaan Child Care Center for nine years.

When the HCCC job opened up, she decided it would be the next logical step in her career.

Roussis said she plans to have more community involvement with HCCC.

“We’re going to get the community in here and the kids out there.”...

SALISBURY — Time is running out, but procrastinating holiday shoppers can find some nifty items in Salisbury at stores such as Joie Maison on Main Street.
Remember backgammon? It was all the rage in college dorm rooms in the mid-1980s. The store has two backgammon sets, one fancy at $214 and one probably better suited to the rough-and-tumble of undergraduate life at $84.

It was here that the Rev. Jonathan Lee became the first pastor for a small, pious New England community.
