SALISBURY — The Salisbury Central School (SCS) production of “The Wizard of Oz” played to large crowds over the weekend.

That it played at all was the result of student initiative.

SCS students asked Principal Lisa Carter if the school would sponsor a dramatic event, and Carter agreed.

Plays and similar activities have come under the auspices of SOAR, the after-school enrichment program, in recent years.

At the final show, on Sunday afternoon, May 21, Ayla Hill as Dorothy escaped from Miss Gulch, only to encounter the Wicked Witch of the...

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.

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.
