SALISBURY — In a speech that was as moving as a poem, Sandy Dennis of Salisbury evoked the beauty of every moment of life when seen through the eyes of one who might soon lose it.

She offered thoughts, memories, encouragement and exhortations at a National Cancer Survivors Day event at the Grove in Lakeville on Tuesday, June 4, hosted by the Salisbury Visiting Nurse Association.

Entering new worlds through the Hotchkiss portal

LAKEVILLE — Walking into The Hotchkiss School’s main building at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24, was a little like a trip to another world. It was the first annual St. Luke’s Cultural Fair, presented by Hotchkiss students.

Big plans for Salisbury’s sewer system

SALISBURY — The Salisbury sewer system will get major upgrades this spring — and there won’t be a lot of digging.
Don Mayland, a selectman and the chair of the town’s Water Pollution Control Authority, said in a phone interview Tuesday, Feb. 12, that the project has three components.
The first is complying with state-mandated phosphorus control regulations. This will require new construction at the sewer facility, located along the Rail Trail in Lakeville.

SALISBURY — Immigration, religious strife, boycotts, political machinations, and national press coverage all contributed to the Lakeville Crucifix controversy of last fall, according to Geoffrey Brown.
Oh, wait — make that the fall of 1882.
The elements of the story of how the installation of a 12-foot tall, realistic crucifix in front of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Lakeville became a national news story have an unmistakably contemporary ring, Brown told a standing-room only audience at the Scoville Memorial Library on Saturday, Feb. 16.

State trash regulations will impact both Salisbury and Sharon

SALISBURY — It was garbage and recycling day at the Salisbury Board of Selectmen’s meeting Monday, Feb. 4.
A group of residents asked the selectmen to consider a ban on single-use plastic bags in town. This would affect, primarily, LaBonne’s grocery store.
The group said the bags are wasteful, contribute to litter, are rarely recycled and get caught up in the machinery used for single-stream recycling.
They pointed to other towns that have enacted bans as examples to follow.
