Mural comes to life at SCS

SALISBURY — Salisbury Central School eighth-graders are working on a mural of a Japanese landscape.
On Thursday, Jan. 17, the students were busy either drawing outlines of their scenes in pencil on  5.5-by-10-inch pieces of thin birch, or starting to paint them.

LAKEVILLE — On Sunday, Jan. 13, prior to the cold snap of Sunday, Jan. 20, and Monday, Jan. 21, lake watcher Don Mayland declared “ice-in” on Lake Wononscopomuc in Lakeville.

Hoo me?

Compass Arts And Entertainment Editor Anne Day spied this barred owl as she drove up her road in Salisbury on Saturday, Jan. 19. The owl sat calmly and waited as Day pulled out a long-lensed camera and took multiple photos.
