I got an email on Halloween inviting me not to a costume party but to behold the strange and rare sight of sockeye salmon trying to spawn in a tiny little brook that runs through Ed and Betty Tyburski’s property on East Twin Lake in Salisbury.

The Tyburskis have owned the house for more than 50 years and they’ve never seen anything like it.

The brook is seasonal. When it rains, it runs.

And it rained buckets a couple days earlier.

When I got there, I saw what was probably 200 bright red fish in the 12-inch range, practically on top of each other...

SWSA Jumpfest 2011

A weekend dominated by Bliss

SALISBURY — Each February, the town of Salisbury gears up for a weekend of ski jumping at Satre Hill, often the biggest event of the winter season.

In the winter months, snow blankets the grass field while the bleachers, quiet and empty, keep vigil over the 40,000-capacity stadium.
