Speaker: ‘We must be vigilant’
On the 81st anniversary of the birth of civil rights crusader Martin Luthar King, a storm was raging. While a literal storm whipped at the windows of the High Street Methodist Church, speakers reminded the audience of the recent devastation in Haiti, and two recent hate crimes as proof that as far as society has come since the 60’s, the Rev. King’s work is not yet complete. “We have a lot to celebrate about the path we have come,

but we have a lot of work to do,” keynote speaker Arthur Bernard told the packed chamber. “... Justice is where we are headed.” The event was co-sponsored by the Duxbury Interfaith Council and the Duxbury No Place for Hate Committee. “It’s just marvelous to have you all here today to celebrate the life and ideals of Martin Luther King,” said Peter Winterbottom from the First Church of Christ, Scientist in his introductory remarks.

Jim Chappuis of My Little Bakery recently returned to the world of baking after years at an office job. His shop in Millbrook offers fresh baked breads in several varities.

Blissful baking in Millbrook
People will often use the phrase “the greatest thing since sliced bread” to describe something amazing. But to a true baker, sliced bread is anything but great. “You lose the freshness when you slice it,” says Jim Chappuis of My Little Bakery. “That’s why they add a lot of chemicals.”
MY LITTLE BAKERY Address: 282 St. George St. Phone: 781-934-2352 Hours: Closed MondayTuesday. WednesdaySaturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Features: Freshly baked bread and cookies every day, all-natural ingredients
By Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

“What a privilege it is to belong to the DBA — a wonderful group of caring individuals who work shoulder to shoulder every day and care about our community.” - Donna Wood, Macdonald & Wood Sotheby’s International Realty

Bzzzzzzz....
The DEF Spelling Bee will soon BEE here!
Chappuis takes a few Rye loaves out of the oven. He doesn’t make every variety every day –– for example, Fridays are “Rye Fridays” –– but he does have some staples like multi-grain and sourdough.

Chappuis makes his bread the old-fashioned way in the small bakery tucked into the shops at Millbrook. Since October, he has been churning out about 100 loaves of bread a day, varieties such as sourdough, multi-grain, focaccia and rye. “There’s nothing you can’t pronounce here,” pointing to a list of ingredients. “I could make this bread in half the time if I wanted to use additives or machines, but it wouldn’t taste the same.” Chappuis first learned about good bread (and developed a disdain for the storebought, pre-sliced variety) from his father, who was from France. “He always complained he couldn’t get good bread here,” he said. When Chappuis was 14, he got his first job at a bakery across the street and was smitten with the world of yeast and flour. “I saw all that dough and machinery and just fell in love with it,” he said. In college, he would work at a bakery in the morning and then go on to classes. After culinary school, he got a job at the Four Seasons as a baker

and pastry chef. He actually left the world of food for a while to work an office job. But when the economy turned, the longtime Duxbury resident decided to return to his first love. For now, Chappuis is truly a one-man operation. He’ll start some of the dough the day before, and will arrive at the bakery at 4 a.m. to begin mixing ingredients for that day’s creations. His tools are simple: just a long wooden table, a massive oven imported from Italy, and an enormous stand mixer he obtained via craigslist from a bagel shop in New York City. Although the ingredients are simple, there are a lot of other things that go into a great loaf of bread. For example, he checks the weather every morning for things like humidity. “Today is warmer than yesterday, so the breads are coming out different,” he said. The loaves come out of the oven between 9:30-11 a.m. “That way it’s all fresh,” he said. He creates between seven and eight varieties of bread per day. Some are simple like a white pan bread, while others like the ciabatta or a special chocolate and cinnamon bread

he makes only on the weekend are more complicated. He is particularly proud of his sourdough breads –– the starter for which he has been feeding and cultivating for 14 years. For now, he’s keeping things simple and sticking to bread –– although he does offer a few other baked goods like cookies. Chappuis said he had a lot of support from his family while setting up the business, and praised his Millbrook neighbors. He said he’s happy to be part of a culinary revival in Duxbury. “It’s a nice little area. I think Duxbury now has great food,” he said. As for the office life? He doesn’t miss it one bit. “When I come in in the morning, it’s peaceful,” he said.

Stone Soup a hidden gem
ightly humming “over the river and through the woods” is unavoidable while driving down the well groomed, winding dirt road that is Old Sandwich Road. This historic tree-lined street located on the Pine Hills property in Plymouth just happens to lead to the wonderfully hidden-away gem that is Martha’s Stone Soup restaurant. Martha meanders through MARTHA’S STONE SOUP her kitchen mildly but with 517 Old Sandwich Road, purpose, stirring a stock pot Plymouth. full of simmering sauce. She casually lops off a bit of dough 508-224-8900. from a rising pile waiting marthasstonesoup.com to be shaped into baguettes. Popping the baguette into the oven, she tours the kitchen, carefully identifying the source of each ingredient; meat from Foxboro, Hannahbell’s cheese from Westport, vegetables from Web of Life Farm in Carver. She laments the dwindling supply of local storage produce such as celeriac and potatoes, but is eager to put these remaining ingredients and others to good use in veggie lasagna and hearty winter soups. Martha was the chef/ owner of the popular “Martha’s Galley” in Benny’s Plaza for many years, and two years ago moved to this new location, bringing her devoted clientele and staff with her. Her dishes are proudly made from scratch with fresh, local and (when quality and price allow) organic ingredients. Martha knows where each of her ingredients comes from. Shy Brothers Farm in Westport isn’t certified organic, she explains, but they have “120 lovingly raised cows creating high quality cheeses.” Martha’s love of fresh produce extends into her 30’x30’ garden located just behind the restaurant; this space is put to good use, but Martha dreams of larger plots and of becoming a farmer “when I grow up.” A mother and, yes a grandmother, Martha brings a warm maternal quality to her rustic outpost. It’s startling to think of this youthful and energetic woman as a grandmother, but the proof sits sweetly in a high chair in the dining room eating homemade baby food. Martha’s menus are influenced by her regular customers and even a casual request is met with serious attention. Loyal guests (as Martha calls them) requested the return of some of her Galley menu items, so each Wednesday night Martha offers home-style favorites such as barbecued spare ribs, roasted chicken and local clam chowder at the old Galley prices of $12 - $19 per entrée. Open for lunch, late afternoon tea, and dinner, Martha’s Stone Soup belongs to her guests. Cooking class topics and dates are influenced by diner requests; veal stew is served on a certain night for the customer who regularly proposes marriage after his first spoonful. Our visit comes to an end and a bag packed with baguette fresh from the oven and Martha’s beloved home-made chicken liver pâté is pressed into my hands; just as my grandmother used to send me to my car with slices of her homemade apple pie to hold me over until our next visit.
1 lb. of chicken livers (available in the meat section or on request) ½ lb of diced onion 4 tablespoons of fat (chicken fat, butter or oil) 1 lb. of unsalted butter, chunked into quarters 1 bay leaf, crumbled 1 tsp. salt ½ tsp. white pepper ½ tsp. ground cumin 3-4 tbsp. brandy

Martha’s Stone Soup Chicken Liver Pâté

Slowly cook the onions in the fat over medium to low heat until the onions are caramelized, browned and sweet. Add the chicken livers. Raise the heat to medium-medium high, toss the pan regularly to brown the livers. Cook them to medium rare to medium. Add the spices and toss to mix. Add the brandy and stir to scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Turn the heat to high to cook off the juices and remove from the heat. Move the cooked livers to a food processor and grind the livers for a minute and scrape the bowl. Repeat until smooth. Add the butter chunks one by one while the processor is running, allowing each chunk to work in. Scrape down the bowl in between butter chunks. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Best if served at room temperature. Serve with spicy mustard and capers on baguette or crackers.

The Friends believe there is plenty to say about our library and would love to hear from you. The winner chosen will receive a $50 gift certificate to Westwinds Bookshop.

Family Arts Festival provides winter relief
t’s cold outside. It’s dark by 5 p.m. The kids are bored. There’s nowhere to go, and nothing to do. Even playing in the snow has lost it appeal.

Join South Shore Conservatory and the Duxbury Art Association for an interactive afternoon of music, Conservatory student Madelyn movement, arts and crafts. Leary participates in a drum Sing! Paint! Dance! Explore! The afternoon starts class. at 1 p.m. with a performance of “Are You My Instrument Family,” the story of a baby violin, based on the beloved book by P.D. Eastman.

Children can join Su D’Ambrosio in a Drum and Sing singalong, spin and twirl in our Creative Dance Studio with José Mateo Ballet Theatre teacher Kathy Hassinger or play dramatic theatre games with Emily Arsenault. Upstairs, families can create a masterpiece with the Duxbury Art Association. A full stable of instruments will be waiting their turn to make music in our Instrument Petting Zoo where children can see what it’s like to toot a trumpet, strum a ukulele or lay down a beat on a drum set. There will be snacks and a chance to win tickets to Grammy Award-winning Bill Harley in concert. Bring your young children to see all the fun we have to offer at the Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 Saint George Street. It’s the perfect antidote for the winter blues! Admission is free.

The past is a blast at the library
Janis Duffy, Reference Supervisor at the Massachusetts State Archives in Dorchester, will lead a lively introduction to the range of materials available at our state archives on Monday, Jan. 25 at noon at the Duxbury Free Library. Duffy, a life-long genealogist, will explain how census records, passenger lists, naturalization records, military records, and probate records are a way of finding elusive family descendants. She will present actual documents highlighting historical Duxbury including colonial records, legislation, maps, and other fascinating items useful in researching family trees or just interesting in themselves. The program

will devote time for discussion and a question and answer period. Ms. Duffy is Past President of TIARA (The Irish Ancestral Research Association) and has been pursuing her roots for almost 20 years leading several research trips to Ireland. Led by Janis, a team of volunteers has spent the last 12 years transcribing the records to digital form. Over 550,000 are completed, out of a million total records. They hope to finish in another eight years. The program is free and open to the public. While registration is not required, we encourage you to phone 781934-2721 x108 if you plan to attend.

School boss search begins
continued from page one

School Committee is hoping some of that information can be used to facilitate this search. Anne Ward said the committee spent $4,000 on the search last time. “That’s probably gone up,” she said. In 2007, the school tapped the Massachusetts Association of School Committees and consultant Jim Hardy, a former school committee member himself, to lead the search. MASC is one of the options the committee is considering this time around, along with the New England School Development Council. Skeiber pointed out that because Duxbury pays dues to both these organizations, there would be some cost savings if either were hired as a consultant. Committee members agreed that a great deal of the information used during the last search can be revisited. “We don’t want to re-invent the wheel,” said Maureen Connolly. However, Connolly said she wanted to do due diligence on other search options. “Before we decide on one firm, I would like to listen to at least a couple of other firms and see what they have to say,” she said. “I would like to have a choice.” George Cipolletti said that he would be happy to have Skeiber prepare a request for proposal, but cautioned that firms more connected to education may be a better fit. “Private industry didn’t seem to have the network in place ... to get the pool we’re looking for,” he said of the last search. School Committee Vice Chairman John Heinstadt countered that a private firm might be more likely to find an outside the box candidate. He pointed to former Duxbury School Committee member John Tuffy, now the superintendent of Silver Lake, who came from a banking rather than an education background. “If the pool is shallow ... maybe you want to get some-

one who wouldn’t typically be considered in the pool,” Heinstadt said. Connolly pointed out that there are residents with corporate recruiting experience that may be able to aid the search process. However, she cautioned that the school board shouldn’t rely too heavily on the professionals. “It’s our responsibility to hire the superintendent,” she said. “I don’t want to abdicate it all to a search firm.” Cipolletti said no matter who conducts the search, many of the applicants will be the same. “The trick is going to be finding the best match and convincing the person we’re the best choice for them,” he said. The board also discussed the composition of the search committee that would aid the professionals in selecting the

next superintendent. There seemed to be consensus that in 2007, the group was too large. Connolly expressed a desire to keep the committee under 10 this time around, but stressed the importance of including residents. “In this community people value education,” she said. “I think it’s important they have a strong voice, that they can be constructively involved in the process.” Cipolletti talked about hosting at least one community forum to get input from the community at large, and Ward suggested an Internet-based survey. Whatever direction the school system takes, time is of the essence. The board said they would like to hear from potential search firms on Feb. 3.

Harry Katz, Interfaith Council president and chairman of the No Place for Hate Committee, reminded the audience that 10 years ago there was a hate crime within Duxbury’s borders. “The community responded immediately,” he said. “We were heard around the world, that there would be no place for hate in our community and I’m proud of that.” He also pointed out a hatemotivated killing spree in Brockton and and the desecration of a Jewish synagogue in Barnstable as examples of hate at work on the South Shore –– but noted the criminals were brought to justice in both situations. “We are getting the message out that hate will not be tolerated,” he said. Bernard, who is the chief of staff for governor Deval Patrick, told the crowd of his family’s humble roots in the South. His grandfather was a sugar cane sharecropper in Louisiana, and his father later moved his family to Weymouth. “My siblings and I were not immune from the hatred

Am I jogging or power-point-presenting on the 20th? And by the end of the month you have no idea where you’re supposed to be so you pack up the gym bag and quit. It’s clearly not your fault. The fault, Cassius notwithstanding, lies with Julius Caesar and his Julian Calendar, which saddled us with the seven-day week. (The later Gregorian calendar retained the seven-day week, but eliminated three leap years, which instantly killed sales of 2009.AH.ads: Gregorian Chants among single women, which gave us The AH.Event.ads 11/5/09 9:48 AM Page 12 Dark Ages, and Barry Manilow.) How did J. Caesar come to inherit a seven-day tradition? Because, people that go back even further than Larry King thought there were seven planets. So, here we are in the 21st century, capable of space travel, caller-ID, and 852 friends on Facebook, yet, still servile to a calendar designed by people who thought the moon was a planet and cats might make good pets! So, here’s my simple plan. A six-day week. This of course means that we have to eliminate a day. It’s obvious it can’t be Saturday or Sunday; no one is going to give up his or her weekends. Monday is out. How would you start the week? And, obviously, we need Tuesday to do work we should have done on Monday. We can’t eliminate Wednesday, that’s hump day. Thursday is questionable, but useful for regaling office mates with your golf round on Wednesday. That leaves Friday. And, let’s face it, when was the last time you really worked on Friday? The truth is Friday is archaic, antediluvian, disposable –– the appendix of the calendar body. With that settled, I’ll be starting my campaign, Lose Friday and Lose Weight, just as soon as I settle that pesky lawsuit by a certain restaurant chain.

Duxbury’s early Settlers: William Collier
Jr. At the time of the Colliers deeding the land to Benjamin and Sarah (1661) it was described as bounded by, “on the one side by land of Christopher Wadsworth. … sometimes the land of Jonathon Brewster (in the past) and on the other side by land of Christopher Wadsworth, which was the land of Job Cole.” Good clues for our research that Jonathon Brewster and Job Cole were granted the land west and east of the Collier property. Even though this deed was rewritten in 1666 (leaving out the Brewster and Cole references) to provide for William Collier and his wife Jane to live out their lives on the property, the early deed is significant. In 1724 Benjamin Bartlett, Jr. left the property to his seven daughters, five of whom had husbands. Rebekah Bradford, widow of John, and Abigail Bartlett were single at the time. The husband’s names were Josiah Thomas, John Samson, John Murdock, Jr., Israel Bradford and John Turner. Intermediate Owners The property was never totally “re-assembled” after 1724, but several owners accumulated large acreages, most notably the Oceanwoods development. Some of the owners over the years were George I. Winsor, pre 1845; Seth C.

ous a spirit, as not to be content with making profit by the enterprise of the pilgrims, unless he shared their hardships.” From all outward appearances he was truly a beloved man. He was also the wealthiest man in the colony. Almost upon his arrival he assumed important duties, such as assistant to Gov. Bradford in 1634. He was elected assistant 28 times (one-year terms). For many of these years he was the court magistrate. At one point, the colony leaders asked him to review all the colony’s existing laws as to their fairness and usefulness. In his later years (it’s believed that he was in his mid 80s at the time of his death in 1671), the court appointed the treasurer to procure a servant for him because of his failing health. Mr. Collier was, all in all, one of the most influential men in the colony. He was frequently granted land, and even more often served on committees to view and lay out (survey) land for others. Probably, the reason that William Collier is not better remembered is that the Collier name is not among the more prominent names in Duxbury today. Of his 12 children only four daughters survived to adulthood. His eldest daughter, Mary, married Gov. Thomas Prence her neighbor to the west; daughter Rebecca married Job Cole her neighbor to the east; daughter Sarah married Love Brewster, son of Elder William Brewster; and daughter Elizabeth married Constant Southworth, Gov. Bradford’s step-son. A thought here about Elder William Brewster’s son’s name “Love.” Elder Brewster had another son named Wrestling, and a daughter named Fear. Elder was a very religious man. My daughter thinks it may be that he was wrestling with God’s will or living in fear. My thought was that he only had five children, so it’s not like he ran out of names! Might he have picked more “normal” names out of the Bible? One of Fear’s descendents was our 12th president Zachary Taylor, “Old Rough and Ready.” Mr. Collier was granted land of 80 acres or more, which is comprised of the Oceanwoods development, which stretches easterly to the rear of lots on the west side of Bayridge Lane, as far north as the Milepost restaurant, and down to the shore at what was called Morton’s Hole. With four daughters and his wife, he could have been granted as much as 120 acres. Mr. Collier received several land grants, some of which may have been to make up for a shortage here. This property was granted to his granddaughter Sarah (Brewster) and her husband Benjamin Bartlett, and then it passed to their son Benjamin,

to Mildred A. Pierce w h o called it MA Pierce’s. “MA” because of Mildred A. and she was a mother of six children. She rented the property for several years before she bought it in June of 1945. Her bill of fare included fried clams, clam chowder, cakes, pies (lemon sponge was a local favorite), donuts, etc. She was quite successful and raised her six children alone. The current parking lot was a grove of pine trees with benches and picnic tables. There was even a movie screen (provided by a cigarette manufacturer) on which MA showed movies like the drive-in theaters of the day. I wonder if she showed the “Mildred Pierce” movie? Probably not! I also wonder if James M. Cain, the author of “Mildred Pierce,” ever visited Duxbury and heard the name. She sold the restaurant in November of 1946 to Walter and Bertha Schroeder, and retired shortly thereafter. Mildred A. Pierce died on May 9, 1951 and is buried in Mayflower Cemetery. The Schroeders only kept the restaurant for a short time and sold it to Vera K. Luttrop in 1947. Knute Luttrop named the restaurant the Corner Cupboard. Although the Luttropps owned the property for ten years, they rented it to Margaret Viall, Doris Viall and Thelma Snow who enjoyed some

success. The Luttropps sold the facility to the Carl Schaffer family in January of 1957 and they named it the Milepost. Greta Schaffer was the cook, and I guess a good one; her recipe for Milepost Pecan Pie is in Margery L. Macmillon’s “Stopping Places along Duxbury Roads,” which contains a more detailed account of the Milepost along with many other restaurants, inns, tea rooms, etc. I would like to think that the reason for the Milepost name was that there was a granite post with mileages on it at this strategic intersection. We won’t know until it shows up somewhere. Until then I’ll defer to Ms. Macmillon, who attributes the name to the location being a mile from Tinkertown, So. Duxbury, and Island Creek. The Schaffers sold the front half of the property to Robert A. and Ruby O. Simpson in 1963, and operated the restaurant as The Dory. In the later stages of their ownership they leased the restaurant to Paul and Bob Lundbaum who changed the name to The Brothers II, which lasted only a short time. The Simpsons sold the business to George F. and Helen Henderson in 1979 and they renamed it The Milepost. Here again there was a short ownership, as the Hendersons sold the restaurant to the current owners Bud and Trish Johnson in November of 1982. Since then it has steadily increased in popularity and seems to be more and more successful as the years go by.

Listening to the Past: Girl Scouts in grades 3-5 are invited to attend a special program being offered by the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society on Jan. 29 from 2:15-3:45 p.m. at the Wright Building. The girls will be walked to the Wright Building from Alden by adult volunteers for this event. Listening to the Past Try-it patches will be available at the end of the event for our Brownie Scouts, and light refreshments will be served. This promises to be a great program and there is no charge to attend, but remember you must register by Jan. 20 by calling Selden Tearse at 781-934-9452 or by e-mailing her at stearse@ comcast.net. It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time: Cookie booths are being held at Foodie’s every weekend this month, where our scouts have yummy Girl Scout cookies for you to purchase and enjoy with a cup of tea or a glass of milk. In addition, girls are going door to door in their neighborhoods taking orders for cookies that will arrive on Feb. 6. Cookie sale profits fund troop activities for the girls and also allow the council to run quality programs for our girls, provide Girl Scouting opportunities at our camps for those who would not otherwise be able to afford them, and allow for the maintenance of the many beautiful camps our council owns. So when a Girl Scout knocks on your door, or you see a cookie booth, please support our girl by purchasing a box of cookies. Cookies For Our Troops: Members of Cadette Troop 80331 are asking for support in their efforts to send 30 cases of cookies to our soldiers in the Mideast. Whether you can purchase 1 box or simply donate a dollar toward a box -- you will be helping to put a smile on a soldier’s face when he opens one of the boxes that are sent each month by the American Legion in Plymouth. A representative from the troop will be at Foodie’s on Sunday, Jan. 24. They ask that you stop by and made a donation to help them reach their goal of 30 cases. For more information on this endeavor, please call Joan at 781-934-5427. Leaders’ Meeting: The next meeting for all Duxbury Girl Scout leaders will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 7:30-9 p.m. at the Scout House. This important meeting will include information on two community service projects slated for this spring which will require troop sign-up. There will also be information on the Sweetheart Dance which will be held on March 6. This year we are going to offer our guests a special treat. Please be sure to send a representative from your troop to this important meeting.

t a recent public hearing before the Planning Board, a resident remarked that an influx of big box stores would kill off the local-owned and run mom-and-pop businesses in town. The sad truth, however, is that it appears forces within town are clamoring for the chance to deliver the death blow first. The public hearing included a redux of a local businessman’s proposal to change the town’s lot coverage rules, making them more business-friendly. The Planning Board shot down the change, saying it was too close to the proposal rejected at Town Meeting last year. While the board may have a point about this particular proposal, the discussion revealed an ugly truth about how businesses are treated in Duxbury. Many businesses that come before town boards, the Planning Board in particular, see their proposals not only rejected but belittled and peppered with caustic comments. Some have complained that the process itself is too onerous and boards overreach their authority in some of their demands on applicants. Perhaps it’s time to switch tactics, to a more collaborative –– rather than combative –– approach. Duxbury will likely never attract large-scale businesses to town, and that seems to be what residents want. We won’t be seeing a Target or a large industrial park come in and expand the tax base. But we can certainly do a better job supporting the businesses that are already here. Last year, during the selectman’s race, candidates at a Duxbury Business Association forum were asked a host of pointed questions about the town’s support of local businesses. It’s obvious that the business community feels neglected. It’s a snapshot of the challenge in front of us. How do we preserve the Duxbury we want without driving entrepreneurs away? It starts with a dialogue of respect. Duxbury’s land use boards should be able to do their jobs and protect the town without subjecting business owners to put-downs. The watchwords should be compromise and partnership, not denial and scorn. Last year, during Holly Days, there was a big turnout from townspeople who not only participated in the free activities, but browsed and shopped in local stores. It seems the community at large is willing to support local business. Now it’s time for town officials to catch up. – J. Graeber

Is Duxbury I ‘anti-business?’

Blue in the face about bags ———————
’m writing this letter out of frustration on two issues. First, I was extremely frustrated to learn in this week’s Clipper that the “Blue Trash Bags” will only be sold via in-town merchants as of April 1, 2010. While I am a big supporter of local businesses, this is a bad decision. The selectmen failed to consider how it will impact residents living close to alternative shopping venues in other towns. Not everyone in Duxbury lives within a mile of Halls Corner. My family lives on the western side of town, a close distance to the Kingsbury Plaza. We do all of our shopping at Hannaford out of convenience. When this decision goes into effect, my family will now have to make an extra stop on our already hectic errands route for no other reason than to buy town trash bags. I understand that you were trying to support the in-town shops. But, as the article points out, the bags are not a profitable product for them. Rather than supporting town businesses, how about the selectmen supporting town residents? Will the town reimburse my family for having to drive an extra six miles round trip to get to Foodie’s each week? I realize the hope is that people will purchase other things in the stores if they have to go there to buy their blue trash bags. But from my perspective, if this decision goes through, my family will be buying the bags and only the bags at town shops out of protest. If the selectmen make unilateral decisions that will have a negative cost, convenience, or environmental impact on my family, then I will ensure there is no upside for the town. Please reconsider this poor decision. It hurts the residents and won’t benefit the merchants as much as you think it will. Second, where is FIOS TV? A few months ago I started receiving

A

flyers in the mail advertising “FIOS Is Here!” That is true … FIOS Internet is here. FIOS TV is not. When I first heard FIOS was coming to town, I was under the impression that building the infrastructure would be the primary obstacle to getting service. I have since learned that the town is now almost fully wired. FIOS TV and Internet is here and on the pole. The infrastructure is complete. The reason we don’t yet have FIOS TV is because the town has not yet reached a TV contract agreement with Verizon. It is frustrating to learn that, technically, all of the wiring is done yet we can’t get the service because of long, drawn out negotiations between Verizon and Duxbury. Come on selectmen … let’s get the ball moving faster. People want an alternative to Comcast (and I want a multi-room DVR.) Brad Besse South Street

he Duxbury Business Association is pleased with, and endorses, the Board of Selectmen’s decision to make “Pay As You Throw” trash bags available exclusively at Duxbury business locations. The mission of the Duxbury Business Association is to partner with the community, to help businesses succeed and flourish by enhancing and publicizing the image, heritage and lifestyle of Duxbury. The decision made by the selectmen is a positive step in furthering that mission and is to be applauded. Currently local retail-

ear Duxbury business owners, stop holding my trash bags hostage! You should be able to stand or fall on your own merit and not force your customers through the doors.

I am the President of the Gallery who works with a Board of very dedicated Directors that run and operate the non-profit Gallery located in the Duxbury Free Library. Today Jan. 15, 2010 was a very sad day for our Gallery Library. Upon arriving at the Gallery to put out price lists for our newest exhibit by Jane Flavell Collins, a very talented and well known artist in Duxbury, I was informed that one of her small oil paintings had been stolen right off the

This painting was a small 14”x 17” oil painting in a lovely gold frame of a catboat in the Duxbury marshes, entitled “Sailboat.” Of course, I am shocked and saddened that this kind of occurrence could happen in our gallery, library and town. We are all the stewards of our town’s public sanctuaries and I believe we need to keep them safe for our children and for all who visit them each year. I urge all patrons who visit our sanctuaries to keep your eyes and ears open for there is a thief among us and we need to stop this kind of scourge dead in its tracks. I grew up in Duxbury and be-

Please join me in becoming more vigilant in your surroundings and notify authorities if you see something that does not seem right.

sues that matter most to them. I think everyone in the class took home a number of important lessons and new ideas, especially me. The Council on Aging is an invaluable asset to the town of Duxbury, and I enjoyed teaching this course each and every morning. The course itself covered a broad range of state and federal issues including balance in state government, immigration, health care reform, financial bailouts and the special election to fill the United States Senate vacancy. The structure of the class was generally a free-flowing forum for discussion, and my students offered suggestions for new topics to be covered each week. It’s always great to be able to meet with my constituents and discuss their issues of concern. Many students contributed brief anecdotes from their life experiences, both past and present, and I found that it brought a unique perspective to the course. Again, thank you to my class and the Duxbury Council on Aging for extending me the invitation to teach this course. I look forward to doing it again in the future. Rep. Daniel K.

Thanks for letting me teach Duxbury seniors––
his past week I concluded my Lifelong Learning Course held at the Duxbury Senior Center with a class luncheon. The luncheon capped a course I taught regarding state and federal political issues. That being said, I would like to offer a sincere “Thank You” to the senior citizens who enrolled in my class and the Duxbury Council on Aging staff. This was an incredibly rewarding experience for everyone involved, and I am truly grateful for being given the opportunity to meet with local seniors and discuss the is-

Silent majority speaks out––––––––––––––––
believe I am writing as a member of the silent majority. I have been attending and watching school committee meetings since before the zero tolerance issue raised its head, when the relationship between Eileen Williams and the School Committee was hunky-dory. However, those feelings changed. As a result, one current member and one former member rode the wave of parental discontent to get elected to the School Committee. When selecting Mrs. Skeiber for superintendent, these members voted against her selection in a 3-2 vote. Many naysayers claimed that she was an “Eileen clone,” which she is not. Nevertheless, she was doomed from the beginning. You don’t need to be a speech pathologist with experience in teaching nonverbal language skills like me to read the often mistrustful attitude in these members’ body language, their tone of voice, their discourse, and most importantly,

I

their votes. I am not saying committee members need to be a rubber stamp and agree on everything. And I am not saying that every administrative move or decision was made exactly as it should have been. But without a totally supportive school committee behind her, how could one expect Mrs. Skeiber to withstand the constant parental unhappiness or unrest? I have known Mrs. Skeiber for more than 14 years, since her time as vice principal at the Duxbury Elementary School. In all my interactions with her on various committees, meetings and on a one-to-one basis, she has always been respectful and shown herself to be interested in providing the best possible education to all of our students. While her detractors may be jumping for joy, they should be very careful. Our financially strapped district now has to allocate funds for a superintendent search, with no guarantee that a suitable candidate will apply, never mind be chosen.

Where will that money come from? And more importantly, will we be able to find anyone as dedicated to Duxbury’s children as she. I predict, with the current candidates for school committee, the time change will be reversed for sure. With these candidates alone, our schools will be regressing rather than progressing, and votes will be driven by singular agendas. The silent majority of parents may find many other changes that they are not happy with including an appointed superintendent from this very school committee. So, if you like the time change or want our schools to move forward to meet the challenges of a new era in education, then speak up. Throw your name into the hat for School Committee, write letters, and have your say in meetings. I thank our superintendent and departing school committee members for their service. Linda L. Garrity West Street

he Mass Department of Education recently posted school district per pupil expenditures for 2008 on their Web site. With 3397 students, Duxbury spent $10,169 per pupil in 2008. The average 2008 per pupil expenditure for Massachusetts school districts was $12,449 or $2,280 more per pupil than Duxbury spent. Between 2007 and 2008, the State average for per pupil expenditure increased by $591 per student while Duxbury’s average increased by only $240 per student. School district expenditures across the State ranged from a high (Minuteman) of $27,953 per pupil to a low (Georgetown) of $8,243 per pupil. Out of 328 school districts in Massachusetts, 83 percent or 273 school districts spent more per pupil than Duxbury spent in 2008. Duxbury was number 55 from the bottom for per pupil expenditure. Duxbury was in the bottom 32 percent in 2005, the bottom 24 percent in 2007 and dropped to the bottom 17 percent in 2008. Considering the budget that was

Duxbury’s best kept secret?–––––––––––––––

just approved by our school committee, Duxbury’s ranking will drop even further for 2009 and 2010. The outlook is even more horrifying considering that Duxbury also has outdated, poorly maintained middle school and high school buildings that are literally rotting from the vernal pools on the roofs down. It is no wonder that Duxbury can not attract qualified, competent administrators, teachers and staff. Duxbury spent below the state average for every function except “payments to out-ofdistrict schools” to which Duxbury paid almost three times the state average. Note that Duxbury spent way below the state average on professional development which also significantly influences our ability to attract and retain a “great,” competent staff. Some school districts that are comparable to Duxbury in terms of number of students and per pupil expenditure are Dighton-Rehoboth, Foxborough, Gardner, Groton-Dunstable, East Longmeadow, Ludlow, Middleboro, Pentucket, Quabbin, and Scituate. Duxbury is

not keeping good company with our peers on this list. Even communities where I would never choose to live spend significantly more money per student than Duxbury does: Boston $17,151 per student per year, Brockton $12,814 per student, Worcester $12,838 per student, and, surprisingly, Randolph $11,858 per student. Duxbury will never provide a “great” education for $10,169 per student per year. Duxbury will never provide a “great” education within the budgetary priorities and constraints set by our town leaders at Town Hall. This abysmal state of affairs existed long before the economy took its nosedive. It resulted from long term, inadequate planning for the future and poor management of Duxbury’s financial resources by our town leaders, School Committee, and school administrators. Parents have very justifiable reasons for their current “public outrage.” Sandy White Tremont Street

he recent (Jan. 13) Clipper editorial, “A Loss for Duxbury – and A Warning” touched me personally and professionally. I began my teaching career in Duxbury, serving as social studies teacher for fourteen years. I was most fortunate to be one of the first “in-house” people to become assistant principal at the Duxbury Intermediate School. Currently, I am a principal in another district. My family has enjoyed our 37 years living here and we are most appreciative of the fine education our son received in the Duxbury Public Schools. I write this document because I care deeply about our town and its schools and I hope it serves to make people more reflective about where we are as a community. Although I agree with the overall message in the Clipper editorial, imbedded within its message, and later in a letter to the editor, are some of the very causes of why it will be a challenge to attract effective school leaders to this community. One such worrisome pattern is that people are personally attacked for having different ideas and opinions. This kind of personal criticism occurred recently when a School Committee member was accused of not having the best interests of the schools in mind when he chose not to support a highly controversial political initiative by the federal government that requires schools to change in ways that will generate significant local controversy. It was also exemplified in the contentious dialogue regarding the police chief issue a few months ago. We should be able to sustain a debate about complex issues without implying someone does not have the best interests of the schools or the town in mind. Another challenge to Duxbury in attracting future school leaders is the long-standing disrespect shown to administrators by the way elected officials micromanage the work of educational leaders. Evidence of this can be observed with statements made by those running for School Committee seats. Candidates seem to be running for superintendent, instead for a position designed to set policy and manage the school department’s budget. Personnel and operational issues of the schools is the sole responsibility of the school leadership, but far too often they are challenged publicly by the policy setting board. This tendency to get involved in the details of what should be the responsibility of educators is not something that occurs in every community and it poses a serious obstacle to attracting quality educational leaders to Duxbury. Disrespect for our public leaders has been ongoing for many years in our town, but has recently surfaced again in the discussion about the time changes in the schools, and with the police chief issue. Too many citizens refuse to accept leadership decisions that are contrary to their point of view. Rather than disagree agreeably about a decision, they continue to talk negatively about decisions, camouflaged by politically correct terms like transparency and interest in the town to the point of harassment and personal attacks on the decision maker. Unfortunately, some of our elected officials have chosen to allow this rancorous and divisive debate rather than move on. Additionally, some of our elected officials have demonstrated disrespect for each other in their dialogue about difficult issues, as evidenced recently by our School Committee’s need to bring in a consultant to assist it in its deliberating process. School administrators have a broad network of professional communication. Our role is complex due to the pressures of federal legislation, unfunded mandates at the state level, limited resources at the state and local level, and the level of accountability for student achievement. Currently, the trend is a “buyer’s market” in that there is a greater need for school leaders than there are skilled practioners. We can choose where we work. Duxbury currently does not exhibit a spirit of respectful dialogue, collaborative team work, and pride in and appreciation for the many accomplishments and contributions of its public leaders. Rather, we seem to be more interested in blaming and taking over the work of those we hire to do the job. As a result, Duxbury is hardly viewed from the outside as an administrator’s dream job, but a community where it is very difficult to move a district forward in the interests of its children. It will take a community effort to change this perspective. The writer is a Tremont Street resident and the principal at the Wm. H. Galvin Middle School in Canton

After an ugly blowout loss to Archbishop Williams last Monday night, the Dragons (5-5-1) got back in the win column behind the goaltending of sophomore Derek Williams and the play of senior captain Pat Charland, who scored two goals and added a pair of assists in beating the Mustangs (5-4). It was Williams’ first varsity victory in his debut. The Dragons thought they

bury’s offense, as sophomore Connor Doyle had a pair of scoring bids stopped by Medford’s Mike Gendreau over the next couple of minutes. Williams had his first big save of the game with 8:23 to go, as he flicked his stick at a redirected shot to keep the game scoreless. The Dragons had their second power play with 4:05 left in the period, but Medford captain Nick Squillaciotti did an outstanding job of pinning the puck in the corner for close to 30 seconds and killing Duxbury’s momentum. Both teams played shorthanded to start the middle period. However, with the Mustangs on the power play, the hard work of Charland paid off. The senior forward stole the puck on the forecheck and beat Gendreau for a 1-0 lead. Williams made a spectacu-

lar save right off the faceoff to keep the lead intact. However, the Mustangs kept coming and scored at the 5:26 mark when Guy Leone finished off a two-on-one break to knot the game. Duxbury went on the power play in the first two minutes of the final period, but they gave the advantage back 22 seconds later with both teams playing even for 1:08. Sophomore Will Siefert finally got his team the lead for good when he found himself in the left faceoff circle where he blistered a shot past Gendreau’s stick side for a 2-1 lead with Charland and Doyle registering assists. The undisciplined Mustangs put themselves in a hole less than a minute later, when the Dragons went on the power play and broke the game

was spared, he said, from the blatant racism then prevalent in the deep South. He compared his experience to that of Governor Patrick’s. Patrick, he said, grew up in the tough South Side of Chicago, and was fortunate to be able to pursue his education here at Milton Academy. Both were beneficiaries of one of Martin Luther King’s goals for loosening the grip of racism: education. Arthur quoted from a 1967 speech of King’s which compared the 1967 status of African Americans to the 1789 American plan for establishing U.S. congressional representation: one slave (male) counted as 60 percent of a person. King then described how things went down hill from there, to only half a person. More specifically, 1967 African Americans had about half as much of the good things of life (income, jobs, homes, and so on) and twice as much of the bad things (poverty, illness, battlefield death in Viet Nam). Today, here in Massachusetts, we have elected the state’s first African-American governor, selected the first woman President of the State Senate (the first of either house of the legislature), arranged for health insurance for 97 percent of the population, and supported the full acceptance of the benefits of marriage to gay and lesbian couples. Meanwhile, we also selected our first African-American President. Obviously, we’ve made progress. In other words, Arthur’s message reached out from race to all forms of prejudice. Like King, Arthur spoke to “our common humanity,” and emphasized that the solution to hate cannot be superficial. “Being a member of a community,” he said, “is not just an intellectual exercise, not a rhetorical issue. It is a matter of how we behave, how we treat each other at all times.” It was a lesson he learned from his grandfather, who told him stories of poor blacks and whites joining together in the winter, when food was scarce and times were tough. Men hunted and fished together, and families shared their food. There were lines of race that were never crossed – African Americans “knew their place,” as Arthur put it – but they nevertheless lived in community with whites, as their actions showed. Arthur stressed including our children in all these efforts. Children marched with Martin Luther King, and faced the same police dogs, fire hoses, and arrests that their parents faced. Their courage must be remembered. Is the progress complete? By no means. Arthur shared King’s image that, like Moses, we may not reach the promised land of Canaan, but we can see it from the mountain top, and that “justice is where we are headed.” Arthur’s children, I’m sure, heard the message. I know I did.

Dragons corral Mustangs
open with Charland connecting for his second goal with assists to sophomore defenseman Mitch Barrington and junior captain Bryan Barry. Williams was at his best in the final seven minutes, stopping a point blank shot from the slot with 6:22 to go, and holding the Mustangs off the scoreboard while killing two power-plays back to back with less than four minutes left in the game. Medford would rattle two shots off the post after pulling their goalie in the final 1:30, allowing Barry to finish the scoring for the Dragons with 59 seconds remaining. “We felt comfortable out there and just wore them down,” said Blake. “We needed this game and I told the kids we needed to stay disciplined because Medford had a reputation as an undisciplined team.” Duxbury now gets it toughest test of the season this Saturday when it hosts its annual battle with Hingham at 4 p.m. at The Bog.

They were coming off their biggest win of the season with a 4-1 win over Sandwich and morale at a season high. However, the young Lady Dragons still need to learn that every opponent brings it A-game when it faces Duxbury.

That was the case on Saturday night at The Bog, as Marshfield battled back from a 3-1 deficit with less than

a loose puck, going in alone on Ram netminder Victoria Langrill to beat her with a backhander for a 1-0 lead. The Rams had a chance to tie the game with a powerplay effort with 3:28 to go in the first period and couldn’t connect, leaving the door open for the Lady Dragons to add to their lead as the period ended when freshman Hannah Murphy buried her shot as the buzzer went off for a 2-0 lead. The second period produced little for both sides until 2:16 remained. At that point, Murphy picked up a loose puck at center ice and took it over the blue line with some brilliant stickhandling. She moved through the slot at will and beat Langrill for

defenseman Katie Conlon blasted a shot from the left point to beat Hannon to make it 3-2 with 6:48 to go. Trying to hold on, the Lady Dragons did themselves no favors when they drew a penalty with 5:15 to go, and compounded it 17 seconds later with another. It took the Rams just 10 seconds to tie the match, as Sara Denton made it 3-3 on a tip-in past Hanlon. Duxbury was now in a dogfight for the remainder of the game, with Connolly showing her abilities all over the ice, as she was robbed twice in the final three minutes before the buzzer ended the game. It was not one of the Lady Dragons’ better games,

as their undisciplined style landed them in the penalty box seven times, while the Rams visited twice. Earlier in the week Duxbury took on Sandwich (8-1) and defeated the Blue Knights, 4-1, as Kaitlin Sullivan’s first-period goal stood up for two periods before the Lady Dragons exploded. Third period goals by Lily Connolly, Molly O’Sullivan, and Martha Findley put the hosts away. The Lady Dragons have a big game on the schedule this Saturday afternoon at 1:20 when they battle with Barnstable at The Bog. The Red Raiders are the only team to have beaten (2-1) Duxbury this year.

seven minutes to go in the game to tie the Lady Dragons, 3-3. A lethargic third-period effort by Duxbury allowed the Rams to get back in the game, as they sought to make up for a 3-0 season-opening loss to Coach Friend Weiler’s squad. “We gave that game away,” said Weiler, who was obviously frustrated with his team’s non-chalant attitude in the final 15 minutes. “We just can’t expect the same people to get it done all the time.” Duxbury was able to kill a Marshfield power play in the first five minutes, and then got on the board first at the 7:23 mark when junior Briana Connolly dashed into the offensive zone and picked up

what looked to be an insurmountable 3-0 lead. The Rams changed their goalie in hopes of shaking up the lineup for the final period, and they got results instantly. On the power play with just 38 seconds remaining, Marshfield’s Casandra Briffet was credited with a goal on a shot from the point that pin-balled off a couple of players in front before bouncing in off Duxbury goaltender Julia Hannon to cut the lead to 3-1. With renewed hope, the Rams came out flying in the third period, as they tested Hannon in the first two minutes on a partial break-in. While the lead appeared safe, it suddenly was in jeopardy, as Marshfield’s star
