Fireworks come early
Personnel issues continue to sharply divide selectmen, as a request to investigate the town manager sparked harsh words. At Monday’s meeting, Selectman Christopher Donato proposed hiring a human resources consulting company to conduct an independent performance evaluation on Town Manager Richard MacDonald. However, the other two selectmen did not approve of this idea, with Chairwoman Betsy Sullivan accusing DoBy susanna sheehan, Clipper staff susanna@duxBuryClipper.CoM

Donato made a motion Monday night to hire the company Cape HR Partners, LLC of West Falmouth for $4,500 to perform an evaluation of MacDonald. Donato said that the outside consultant was needed to look into “morale problems” within town government and investigate the

Music for the masses
nce again, the air around Duxbury will be filled with music as the Duxbury Music Festival returns to town. The festival, organized by the South Shore Conservatory, is in its fourth year. It started, according to Festival Director Steven Deitz, when one of Deitz’s teachers visited the Conservatory’s Duxbury campus at the Ellison center. “Wouldn’t it be great to have a summer festival here,” she told Deitz. Later, at a meeting a Barbara Clifford’s house,

Island Creek changes again
Commercial space reduced; height reduced
At this point in the hearing process for a proposed expansion of Island Creek, there are no need for formalities. “I’ve got my tie loosened,” said Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman Dennis Murphy at the beginning of last Thursday’s meeting. “Let’s get some work done.” The proposed expansion of the 40B project known as Island Creek North has undergone more substantial changes as the town and the developer get closer to a final decision. Out of three commercial buildings originally proposed (for a total of 28,000 square feet,) only one remains. Eight twostory, three bedroom townhouse units will be built in place of the commercial buildings. “Because we’ve eliminated 75 percent of the commercial space, we’ve created room for the townhouses,” said Ed Marchant, a 40B consultant working with the developer, Keith Properties. The design of the large apartment buildings in the rear of the proposed development has also changed. Architect Andrew Zaleski said the gutter line of the building has been lowered, reducing its height and making it look more like a three story than a four story building. He said the frontal view of the buildings would be reduced by almost 25 percent. “Physically, it’s giving a whole different approach,” Zaleski said. However, ZBA members were still skeptical of the height of the buildings setting a precedent, because four story buildings have traditionally not been allowed in Duxbury. “It’s a big step for this town, aesthetically,” said ZBA member Michael Gill. There will also be three covered garages on the property, for a total of 14 spaces. Marchant said the garages are merely a sales incentive and won’t have a major impact on Island Creek’s bottom line. A drainage basin near the property line Island Creek shares with the First Baptist Church was also redesigned, and a proposed “tot lot” was split into three separate playgrounds. Although Zoning Board of Appeals members praised the new design, there are still some questions about the projects, mostly revolving around traffic. At the last hearing, the board and Island Creek’s traffic engineer Jeffrey Dirk discussed a potential traffic light somewhere near the intersection of Tremont Street and Route 3. At the time, there was some question as to how much of a traffic light project

Parade day reminders: Floats need to line up along Bay Road at noon; judges will be by at 1 p.m. to see your float up close and personal. Don’t forget to go the middle school for the awards ceremony after the parade to find out who has won the different prizes. Parents and kids, the committee wants to remind you of

the importance of safe practices during the parade. Kids have a tendency to run out into the road for candy or when playing with their friends; parents please supervise your children so they stay on the side of the road so they will not get injured. Please do not allow your children to use supersoakers, silly string or poppers as the floats and vehicles go by; they can cause damage to the vehicles and cause injury.

Please recommend a favorite book or movie: My favorite book is “Love Story,” and my favorite movie is “The Sound of Music.” Please tell why you nominated this person as Unsung Duxbury contributor: I am fortunate to be surrounded with a staff that is both caring and passionate about the work they do. Each staff member at the Senior Center stands out for their uniqueness, but I’d like to recognize Peter Dewey for all that he does to make the food service program at the Senior Center a success. Each morning Peter is the first to arrive at the center. He makes the coffee and serves up treats so we are able to welcome our earliest of guests. Then he begins the process of cooking a hot meal for seniors who are homebound. Typically he prepares between 25-35 meals to be delivered each day. After he has completed that task, he begins the next round of cooking—he prepares approximately 40 fresh meals for the seniors who join on site for lunch Monday through Thursday. What amazes me is that Peter does all this in 19 hours a week! In addition to preparing the meals, Peter orders all the food and food service supplies for the meal program. This includes making extra trips to the grocery store to buy fresh fruit and “the little extras” so we have the needed supplies to make lunches every day. When he goes on vacation or takes a day off—it takes four of us to perform his job and we have a true understanding and appreciation of how much he does during the hours he works. –– Senior Center Director Joanne Moore

My pool water test kit was new last year. Do I need new bottles?? (You know, the red and white dropper things!)


ug. 1 will be a special day in the history of the town of Duxbury, the Alden House and Museum, and the 1632 First Site located beside the athletic fields of Duxbury High School. Representatives from the US Department of the Interior will be here to award the National Historic Landmark Plaques at both sites. The ceremonies will begin at the Alden House and Museum at 105 Alden Street, at 3 p.m. In conjunction with this honor, which is conferred on only 2,500 sites throughout the United States, the Alden Kindred of America is inviting Duxbury residents to attend and support this event. A letter inviting interested residents is in the mail and offers reserved seating and a special listing in the Landmark Ceremony Program for $100 for an individual, couple, or family. According to Pauline Ryder Kezer, member of the Executive Board, who is spearheading this effort, “This recognition as a major national historic site is the only one in Duxbury and we want to make certain that Duxbury folks have the opportunity to join in, be a part of history, and help us preserve this precious piece of history for years to come.” To receive an invitation to be a Duxbury Supporter of the Alden Historic Landmark Commissioning, call 871-934-9092 or e-mail or visit the Document Vault at duxburyclipper. com.

years working toward this goal. Contributing to this successful process were: Dr. Robin Winks, Chair of the History Department at Yale University, Will Gwilliam, Kindred Member and Restoration Architect and Construction Analyst, James W. Baker, Curator of the Alden Museum, and Alicia Crane Williams, Alden Genealogist. In addition to recognizing that no other historic site was so prominently associated with Mayflower passengers, the National Historic Landmarks subcommittee of the National Park System Advisory Board endorsed four specific claims to historical significance. First, the national cultural impact of Alden descendant Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1858 poem “The Courtship of Miles Standish” made the surviving Alden House the most important physical site associated with John and Priscilla Alden and a focus of on-going national interest, especially since descendants continued to live in and own the house. Second, the sites are the most prominent associated with John Alden, a person of na-

tional significance in the U.S. colonial period. Alden held positions of high economic and political importance for almost the entire seventy-one year history of the Plymouth Colony (1620-1691), a span of public service unrivaled in seventeenth-century colonial America and perhaps in the entire colonial period. Third, the Original Alden Homestead Site, the c. 1630 Duxbury home of John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden and their children, yielded information when partially excavated in 1960 that made a major contribution to the archaeological literature on early seventeenth-century English settlement sites in North America. Fourth, this archaeological site was the location of important fieldwork and analysis by Roland Wells Robbins (1908-1987), a pioneer in the field of historical archaeology. The overarching theme of the nomination was that no site in America better represented the multi-generational efforts of one family to interpret the historical significance of their heritage for themselves and their contemporaries.

Beach closing an hour earlier
Duxbury Beach is closing one hour earlier this summer due to budget cuts. On Monday, selectmen voted unanimously to amend the beach rules and regulations to reduce the number of hours that cars can park at the beach. The oversand area will close at 10 p.m. instead of 11 p.m. and the ungated south lot to the right of the harbormaster’s station will close at 10:30 p.m. instead of 11:30 p.m. The changes were necessary because the harbormaster’s fiscal year 2010 budget was cut by 11 percent, or $24,300 at Town Meeting in March. The fiscal year begins July 1. A reduction of $18,000 in salaries in the harbormaster’s budget means that beach and harbor officers must end their shifts earlier during the peak season, which runs from June to mid-September. It also means there will be fewer officers on the beach and fewer harbormaster boats regulating water sports and activity this summer. According to Harbormaster Don Beers, the largest salary cut of $8,235 will reduce the number of officers on duty from five to four on weekends and from three employees to two on weekdays. Beers also had to eliminate one officer in a boat during weekends. He normally has two boats patrolling the harbor and beach during

selectmen and recommended that they approve the license change as long as Foodie’s provides a plan “which visually establishes the perimeters of the licensed areas requested.” Robert Allen, Leon’s attorney, showed selectmen the plan for the wine kiosks. It shows two three-case displays of wine located near the deli section and one ten-case display on the edge of the produce area. Four displays will be positioned near the cheese and appetizer aisle and one more will be near the butcher’s area. Allen said Leon felt placing wine near different items with which it can be paired would help his business. “He wanted to do crosspromotional advertising,” said Allen, who added that Leon was out of state and could not attend the public hearing. Allen said that Foodie’s could use the extra business that the displays may bring because he said “it’s been a challenge” for Leon to run the store during these uncertain economic times. Allen added that Leon does have small wine displays in different locations at his South Boston store. Witten said he had no problems amending Foodie’s liquor license now that the issue of enforceability of the 522 square feet of liquor display space was solved with the plan on the wall. “I’m good with it,” Witten said.


Foodie’s granted liquor license change
The owner of Foodie’s received permission from the town this week to place displays of wine in various locations around his store instead of one designated area. Selectmen Christopher Donato and Jon Witten voted unanimously to amend Foodie’s liquor license to allow owner Victor Leon to showcase bottles of wine in different parts of his store, providing that he hangs a plan showing the layout of the store with the locations of the displays on a store wall where a town inspector can see it. Selectmen required the plan to be stamped by an engineer. Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan recused herself on this issue and left the meeting room because the bank she works for has done business with Leon. The selectmen’s action was a reversal of a vote they took last October. Then, selectmen felt that having displays of wine scattered throughout the store would be difficult for an inspector to measure to make sure Foodie’s was complying with the 522 square feet of liquor display area it was allowed. Foodie’s owners appealed the selectmen’s denial to the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, which remanded the issue back to

charges behind the recent letters of no confidence sent to MacDonald by two police unions, as well as allegations of “intimidation,” including a Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination complaint filed against MacDonald by an employee. As a selectman, Donato said he has been approached by people who have concerns about the management of Duxbury’s government. “I am aware of these issues,” said Donato. “We need someone with independent knowledge … We have to figure out a way to deal with these issues.” Donato said he wanted an “outside person” to come into town hall over a two week period to look over the policies and procedures connected with the town manager and to interview employees. The consultant would then issue a

report, he said. Donato said the basis for his request was Duxbury’s Town Manager Act, which allows selectmen “to investigate the affairs of the town and the conduct of any town department, office, or agency, including any doubtful claims against the town.” He said this type of study was less costly than the recent review of the Department of Public Works by former DPW director Wally Tonazsuck. He pointed out that selectmen did not perform an evaluation of MacDonald last year as they should have as spelled out by the town manager’s act. Sullivan and Selectman Jon Witten did not support Donato’s motion. Sullivan felt there was no need to bring in an outside consultant since it is the selectmen’s responsibility to evaluate the town manager. She said the evaluation process was spelled out in the Town Man-

ager’s Act, and added that the town had a personnel board made up of human resources professionals who could perform the task Donato was referring to for free. Sullivan felt the internal study of the entire DPW with its four divisions and 40 employees could not be compared to conducting a study of just one position such as the town manager. She also took issue with the company Donato suggested saying it had “no work experience with municipal government” and pointed out that according to a resume, the company owner’s last job was “owning a bagel shop.” “How is it you felt comfortable interviewing someone to work for the town on your own?” Sullivan asked Donato. “You don’t get to hire people for the town ... This is not how

the board of selectmen’s open meeting was not the proper forum in which to discuss those issues. Donato said that’s why he wanted an independent re-

view of MacDonald. “What are we afraid of?” asked Donato. “You have a thinly veiled agenda that you want to bring forward,” said Sullivan. “We have rules and regulations that we follow. We color within the lines.” Donato replied: “Am I crazy to ask why we have issues and allegations and letters of no confidence that I feel we ment structure,” said Witten. “But I think it should be generalized … I do not think hiring an outside firm is a good idea. I think your motion is too specific.” Witten said as the former chairman of the board, it was his fault last year for not performing an evaluation on MacDonald. He said he began collecting information from the other two selectmen for the evaluation but never finalized a report. Witten said selectmen should begin MacDonald’s evaluation and complete it by its July due date. He said the selectmen “needed to be careful about the process” and “deal with personnel matters under the cloak of executive session” and that they should have Town Counsel Robert Troy present. “I am still naively optimistic things can get sorted out,” said Witten.

you can find me hanging out at Zahmats with Bob.

There was no discussion of the contract of Police Chief Mark DeLuca at Monday’s Board of Selectm e n ’s meeting. The board did meet briefly in executive session at the end of the meeting, but the purpose was to discuss bargaining with union personnel (Chief DeLuca is not part of a union.) Only Personnel Administrator Jeannie Horne was present; neither DeLuca or his attorney were seen at the meeting. DeLuca was informed, by a letter on June 4 from Town


Manager Richard MacDonald, that his contract would not be renewed when it expires on Nov. 20. At a Board of Selectmen’s meeting June 15, the selectmen voted 2-1 to overrule MacDonald’s letter –– although the effect of that vote on the chief’s contract status remains unclear. Also this week, Horne, in response to a public records request, disclosed that Selectman Christopher Donato had formally requested the personnel file of the police chief. She said he was not given the file, which is not public record, because DeLuca did not file a written release form.

The idea for the market came from Laura Doherty, the president of the market. In January, Doherty placed an ad looking for any interest in town for a market. There were 25 people at the first meeting, Linda Collari said. A nine-member board of volunteers was soon established and worked to gain town approval. “Without the dedication [from the board], the market would have never happened,” Collari said. The group had to gain support within the town, then get liability insurance and establish a set of bylaws before getting the green light from town government. The market is also a non-profit organization, and must follow the state guidelines. “We have an amazing board of great people who have helped to get [the market] together,” Estabrooks said. There is an application process for vendors to get a spot at the market. Applications are approved for a spot by a selection committee, appointed by the board. “We wanted a representation of local farmers and artists,” Estabrooks said of keeping the market related to produce, but also supporting local artists as well.

The board worked with Duxbury Youth Baseball to determine a time for the market to be held. The market ends at 4:30 p.m. and vendors will be off the property by 5 p.m., just in time for the games to start, Pelletier said. Estabrooks expressed disappointment with the current time, as it makes it harder to involve customers who may commute to and from work. “We’re starting with this and hopefully in the future we will be able to have a longer time,” Estabrooks said. “For now it will be the time it is.” However, having an earlier start time will allow working customers to go to the market on their lunch break. The market will offer prepared foods, making it a great place for people who are looking to get out and get something fresh for lunch, Collari said. The market will be officially opened with the ringing of the bell by Jack Williams. Williams has worked to preserve the Tarklin Community Center “for eons,” Pelletier said. The board wanted to commemorate his hard work by allowing him to officially open the market for the season. After the first week, children can enter a raffle to get the honor of ringing the bell the following week. Winners of the raffle will be announced

at the end of the day. The board wanted to get children involved in the market, and also raise money through the raffle. There will be certain events throughout the season at the market, such as face painting and interactive storytelling, which will get children involved. In an effort to give all local growers a place to sell their crops, there will be a shared space set aside for backyard growers. This space is strictly reserved for vendors selling homegrown things, Collari said. Vendors can call ahead to reserve a small space. “We’re trying to do everything we can to support local growers and support people to make use of their land,” Pelletier said. “I think a lot of people are looking forward to coming and becoming a routine customer,” Estabrooks said.
WHERE ‘TARKILN’ COMES FROM Probably most us from Duxbury, when we hear the name of Tarkiln, think of The Tarkiln Twin School House (1871 and 1908). The name originated, not from natural tar pits (mentioned as early as 1677), but from tar resulting from beginning charcoal at kilns at the peat bogs where bog iron ore was being smelted at the forge. The bogs were along the Old Bay Path on Route 53, fairly near the old Tree of Knowledge. The left over tar was a valuable by-product of iron ore smelting that became essential for Duxbury’s successful ship building industry. It was used for, lengthening the life span of help rope; treating canvas fabric ‘tarpaulin’; waterproofing canvas boat hatch covers; for sailor’s clothes, for coating wooden barrels, and to tar the hulls of ships for maintaining water tightness, and to repel sea wood borer’s infestation.

the idea was planted for a summer festival that would bring students and teachers from all over the globe to Duxbury for three weeks of classical music. “After that meeting, it was a force that could not be stopped,” said Development Director Laura Carleton. “We’d never done anything like this,” said Conservatory President Kathy Czerny. “It was about finding a way to get the community involved around music.” The Duxbury Music Festival is a 17-day intensive program for the study and performance of solo and chamber repertoire for piano, violin, cello, flute, bassoon and voice for undergraduate and postgraduate students and adult professionals, according to the conservatory’s Web site. There will be between 18-19 students, some of whom come with the faculty, and some of whom audition for slots at the festival. Students are told to come with three or four pieces of music prepared, said Deitz, and they perform at student recitals almost daily. The students are housed in Bertram House near the town green, and faculty board with local families. These arrangements create a bond between the musicians and the community that festival organizers say is at the heart of the Duxbury Music Festival. “This festival couldn’t survive without the community,” Deitz said. Czerny said the interaction between the students and the audiences is one of the most

A chamber music group plays at last year’s festival. South Shore Conservatory President Kathy Czerny said that the festival has expanded in its four years to include other types of classical music.

rewarding parts of the festival. “That’s the piece that mixes with the conservatory’s mission ... it mixes the professional performances with the educational components,” she said. The faculty for the festival includes musicians from South Shore Conservatory as well as international music stars from around the world. As well as the professionals, the festival depends on over 100 volunteers to host parties, sell tickets and work backstage at the various concerts. Although the festival started as purely chamber music, the music program has been getting more diverse over the years. “We’ve been bringing in some different styles,” said Czerny She pointed to the variety of the concerts slated for this year’s festival, including the Black Sea Salsa Band, which will perform on the Town Green July 18. Among the other concerts are the opening

event, which is billed as more of a Pops-style performance, and the children’s opera “Little Red Riding Hood.” Deitz said that last year, he tried to program music that involved European-style composers influenced by American Jazz, and some of that has carried over to this year’s selection of music. “I’ve taken pains not to program traditional Boston Symphony music,” he said. “We’re trying to program music that you rarely hear.” The festival organizers hope that they are creating new classical music fans as well as creating a community of music appreciators through the festival. “There’s a relationship building that happens between the residents of Duxbury, the students and the faculty,” said Czerny. “We wanted to be able to share what we do inside the building to a larger community ... to see young people perform at that level .. it’s really inspiring to see these kids.” than to point out that the more serious charges against his client had been dropped. The charges stemmed from a May 11, 2008 crash on East Street. According to a police report, Newcomb was the driver of a Land Rover that veered off the road and struck a tree near the intersection of East Street and Mayflower Street, ejecting two people. He told police at the scene that he had consumed “four or five” alcoholic beverages, although he later denied, in a phone interview, that alcohol was involved. He was originally charged with operating while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury, driving to endanger, transportation of alcohol to minors and leaving the scene of a crash after causing bodily injury. Newcomb was sentenced to a year of probation and fined a total of $350 for the negligent operation charge and was ordered to pay a $50 fine for the underage possession charge, according to the court.

A Duxbury man involved in a crash that seriously injured a Hanson man pled guilty to negligent operation and underage possession of liquor this week. Grant L. Newcomb, 19, of Summer Street, Duxbury pled guilty to the two charges in Plymouth District Court on Monday, June 29. The judge in the case dismissed a charge of leaving the

scene of personal injury per the defendant’s request, citing lack of evidence, according to court documents. Earlier this year, a charge of OUI with injury was dismissed by request of the commonwealth on March 5. He was also found not responsible for charges of failure to drive in the right line and speeding. Newcomb’s attorney, Charles Kindregan, declined to comment on the case, other

The garlic you’ve never tasted
itting innocently in the bin at the farmers market, garlic scapes look like scallions gone wild! In fact, these twisty, turning swirls of heavenly garlicness are turning heads in farmer’s markets, farm stands and local stores. Garlic bulbs, like onions, grow below the surface and send up a tender flower shoot that roller-coasters towards the sun. The scape is this whimsical piece of the garlic plant, plucked while still in it’s teenyears before it has a chance to toughen up; they are as fun to cook with as they are to behold. Scapes have all the mellow goodness of a great clove of garlic without the usual snappy bite. Their vibrant green hues add summery goodness to any dish that calls for garlic and, when eaten raw in a salad, are fresh and crunchy with a satisfying, but not overwhelming garlic flavor. Scapes can chopped into one inch pieces and added to just about anything: vegetables, scrambled eggs, pastas, dips and more; the possibilities are limitless. Grill them whole and use them as a pizza garnish, on a salad or tuck them into a veggie panini. But don’t hesitate – the scape season is fleeting and soon they will be gone. Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for Scape Pesto captures the early summer goodness of scapes in a delightful twist on a classic pesto recipe. The pesto can be frozen and then tossed with pasta to liven up a dull winter’s night. Dorie Greenspan’s Garlic Scape and Almond Pesto Makes 1 cup 10 garlic scapes, finely chopped 1/3 – 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese 1/3 cup almonds 1/2 cup olive oil Sea salt Put the scapes, 1/3 cup of the Parmesan, almonds and half the olive oil in a food processor. Process to mix the ingredients and add the remainder of the olive and oil and the cheese (to taste). Lay a thin layer of plastic directly on the pesto, then cover to store.

Registry employee feted for 50 years on the job
Past and present employees of the Plymouth County Registry of Deeds gathered recently in celebration of Vija Berzins 50th anniversary as a Land Court employee. Berzkins began working at the Registry on June 17, 1959, two days after graduating from Duxbury High School. “I graduated on a Friday, and came to work the next Monday,” Berzins said. While Berzins has kept the same hours –– 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. –– and the same desk for the past 50 years, there have been a few changes. Berzins showed off the first pay stub she ever received, at a gross total of $106.16.When asked about how she adapted to the changing technology, she replied with a grin that it hasn’t been hard to get used to the change at all. Berzins has worked under five different registers of deeds and in two different registry buildings. “Vija’s a whole lot of fun,” said Wendy McPherson, who has worked with Berzins for 20 years. “She’s a hot ticket.”

“This is a very historic event,” John R.

Celebrate the real reasons for the 4th of July
he 4th of July is often thought of as a vacation. A time to break out the grill, put on your flip-flops, and just relax and watch the fireworks. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with putting your feet up and enjoying a day with family, friends and good food, we can’t help feeling a little sad that the day’s origins are often lost amid the commercialism. The 4th of July represents not only the birth of our country, but the launch of a truly unique form of government. We sometimes think of men like George Washington, John Adams and Ben Franklin as the guys with the funny wigs whom reenactors play on the Freedom Trail in Boston, but they were truly extraordinary men, whose convergence in one country, at a particular time in history was a singular event that spawned “the Great Experiment.” Think of where this country would be without the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. One only needs to look across the world at Iran, in many ways a relatively modern country, to see that the freedom to speak our mind that we enjoy is not the norm elsewhere in the world. We have, of course, a particular fondness for the freedom of the press –– without which the people would not have a voice against government corruption and greed. So while you’re at the bonfire this Friday, or jamming to one of the many rolling bands in Saturday’s parade, take a moment to contemplate what the 4th of July really represents. And how lucky we really are. –– J. Graeber

Happy 4th of July!


read an article last week about the police not being “legally” able to volunteer their services for the 4th of July Parade. So, here we have a country where much of the community and humanistic services are provided by volunteers: senior services, school assistants, boy/girl scouts, youth sports, misc fund raising events for many charitable services, civic and non-profit organizations, disabled support, veterans support, hospital helpers, Red Cross, soup kitchens, and on and on and on. The list is endless. Even most municipal government political boards and committees are filled by elected and appointed volunteers as most people live in

relatively small towns throughout the nation. One or more of the vertebrae that make up the backbone of the American human/political landscape. Now comes the 4th of July, where certainly one of the underlying American traits we celebrate is how that very same volunteer spirit is such an institutionalized piece of everyday community life. Isn’t the whole parade organized and run by volunteers including some who work for the town? It is part of our history. In spite of our competitive national persona, so many folks help each other in many ways without compensation. However, one of the most significant paid bodies of civil manage-

ment, law enforcement, is now being told they “cannot volunteer” back to the very community that pays them, to help with our national celebration for no compensation other than perhaps some goodwill PR at most? Just a show of appreciation? You have to be kidding. How can they be not allowed to volunteer for the American 4th of July Parade? Is this different than giving tours of the police station to school classes, or Girl/Boy Scouts? How can this be? This has to qualify for one of the most ridiculous technicalities imaginable.

y mother passed away in 2004, and was interred in a family grave at Mayflower Cemetery. After a year passed, I installed a five-foot Shepherds Crook plant hanger at the grave site positioned so the plant hung directly over the middle of the grave stone. When installed properly this hanger stands four feet tall. I noticed that in the first winter someone from the cemetery was discarding the dead plants and leaving the crooks. This went on for a number of years until this past Memorial Day. When I arrived there with a plant for the hanger I noted it was gone. I left the plant sitting on the grave, a trip hazard, figuring that perhaps for this Memorial Day something special was planned and that the crook would be returned soon. After a couple of weeks passed and no crook, I went to the cemetery manager to inquire where and why regarding the crook. I was informed that there was a near miss accident in the cemetery where someone had almost walked into one, so all crooks taller than four feet were removed, and


By hook or by crook ————

won’t be allowed to return. When I asked if they had ever heard the statement “Watch where you’re going stupid” it was instantly disregarded. I was then informed that all the crooks were in the rear of the cemetery office and I could look for mine. The manager took me to the storage location and spent about ten minutes with me looking as they were all marked with name and location, however mine was not there. The manager stated that others had been in also looking for crooks and perhaps had taken mine. As a consolation she reached into the pile and pulled out a nice wrought iron one with the name Edwards on it, the location marking is somewhat illegible, and placed it in my hand saying “take this one, no one is looking for it now.” It is a nice one and might meet the height restriction if I put it in deep enough. Like a dope I still have it, but I refuse to place it on Mom’s grave. I am hoping that you will publish this letter and perhaps the Edwards family will read it, and it can be properly returned. I don’t understand why the cemetery officials did not notify the owners providing sufficient time to remove them. When I asked this question I was told they did not have to. So there it is, by hook or by crook, I think this deserves some answers. Robert Fitzgerald Flint Locke Drive

n Nov. 20, the town of Duxbury through its town manager executed an employment contract with Mark Deluca for the position of chief of police. The term of the contract was three years beginning Nov. 20, 2006 and expiring Nov. 20, 2009. There is no provision for renewal stated in the contract. On June 4, 2009 the town manager indicated through written correspondence that the contract with the chief of police would expire in November of this year. It further stated that the town of Duxbury, acting through the town manager would not be renewing the contract. Members of the police force and a member of the board of selectmen raised the issue of whether this letter and the decision not to renew the contract was the same as terminating the contract (and if so, did the town manager have the requisite authority to do so.) The answer to the first question is governed by the language of the contract. In the absence of explicit language, a contract for a specified term dies a natural death at the end of the term. If the contract is ended prior to the end of the term it may be considered “terminated.” If the contract runs its course and is not renewed it will have “expired;” it will not have been not terminated. In the case under discussion, this particular employment contract for a specified term of years for the police chief was scheduled to expire. The letter stated that another contract would not be offered; i.e. the existing contract would not be renewed. The existing contract has not been terminated; it will continue to be in existence until it expires. However it may be advanced that as far as the po-

lice chief is concerned, it does not matter if the contract is terminated or not renewed, the result is the same, his employment will end in November. In addressing these questions the police certainly have a right to support their chief, however in raising these issues publicly (and I would submit prematurely as the chief still has a valid contract) or asking for the town to state its reason for the decision not to renew the contract they may in fact hurt him more than help him. In the absence of this public discussion the parties would presumably indicate that the decision not to renew was mutual; a result that would presumably have little impact on the chief’s future employment possibilities. As to the selectmen, they certainly have a right to discuss the issue, but if they have legally given authority to the town manager (which it appears they have, through making the town manager the appointing authority for the position of police chief under the Town Manager Act) they are walking a fine line questioning his authority and publicly debating the matter. Such a situation, especially in light of the many other ethical issues that have been raised is usually reserved for executive

session to maintain privacy and a sense of decorum. Such private discussions, provided that they do not violate the Open Meeting Law provide an opportunity to resolve differences and seek a compromise before the debate becomes public and the parties entrench, unless the goal is to somehow impact the town manager’s authority or his decision with a public debate. Whether a majority of our citizens support the town manager’s decision or support the police chief is an open question. What does not appear to be open for discussion is that most people in town believe that Duxbury deserves better than the present political environment on Tremont Street. It would seem that people that we have elected could find a less contentious avenue for resolution of the issue such as considering the town manager’s letter merely a notice of expiration (which is what it is) and not a termination and allow the chief to be considered along with the other qualified candidates when the time comes for the town manager to make a decision on this position.

Take a breath before spending ——————
here are several adages that come to mind these days; among them are “haste makes waste” and “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” We had to have an $780,000,000,000 stimulus bill immediately or the country would not survive, ditto for a $800,000,000,000 TARP rescue for the financial industry, a


$2,200,000,000,000 “budget,” a buy-out of the U.S. automobile industry—all within a few months and with little or no oversight or transparency. Can we now sit back, take some deep breaths and contemplate what has transpired—the good and the bad—before even considering a mammoth health care overhaul and cap-and-

trade energy legislation. We need to demand time to understand, review and question all such legislation. Remember when “billion” was a lot of money? Now we have “trillion.” Let’s not tell Washington what the next big number is! Jane Krahmer Fort Hill Lane

Nor should soap be brown. You see, brown and black is what I’m trying to get rid of with soap. It’s actually one of the prime reasons I bother to bathe. Some other colors soap should not be include green and purple. Green and purple is also something I could be trying to remove with soap. Another thing …soap should not have the consistency of congealed grease leftover in the frying pan. Nor should soap appear to be growing hairy little soapettes on its surface, because it was deemed to be organic or botanical or herbal. Soap is not organic or botanical or herbal. Real soap is fat! Animal fat! Soap should not be translucent. I don’t need to read through my soap while taking a shower. Soap should not be square or round or rectangular. Soap should not have the size, shape and weight of a brick with sharp edges. I don’t want to shave with my soap nor do I plan to use it as a first line of defense against home invaders. I simply want to wash with it. Soap should not come in a liquid dispenser except in the communal showers of gyms or prisons or fraternity houses. Unless you know something I don’t, I know who has been using my soap and whose hairs those are on the bar. Soap should not come on a rope unless one plans to spend a great deal of time showering in the woods with bears and things. Or is extraordinarily clumsy and probably shouldn’t be allowed in showers in the first place. Soap should not be bought in any store with the word “au” or “eau” in its name. It should not be bought in a store that doesn’t know how to spell perfume. Soap should not come wrapped in designer paper best suited for the inside of wedding invitation envelopes or packaged in cute little boxes printed with scenes of Paris or London or Florence and tied with cute little hemp strings. It should not smell like perfume or “parfum.” Now, here is what soap should be. Soap should be white. All white. Not off-white, not mostly white, not white with flecks of color, but white white. And it should smell like soap. Sort of like an open box of Tide. But not as strong. It should fit naturally in the hand … rounded at the edges … not too big, not too small … about half-way between a brick and a motel give-away. And it should sting like heck when it gets in your eyes. And it should float. When you read this memo, I hope you don’t think I’m being unreasonable and recognize that this is not some childish whim on my part, but rather a simple request from your adult husband regarding his need for real soap. We can talk about the fake butter another time.

Whose line is it Duxbury?
Improv Asylum cast will put on two shows July 2 at the PAC
Ok, ladies and gentlemen, we need a setting. You in the back, with the tweed sports coat. The Performing Arts Center in Duxbury? Ok, very meta-theatrical, we can work with that. Now we need a situation. The 4th of July Parade? Nice, very patriotic. And ... scene. That’s the kind of conversation one might find at the PAC on Thursday, July 2, as a troupe from the Improv Asylum theater in Boston comes to Duxbury for an evening of improvisation comedy. Norm Laviolette, co-owner of Improv Asylum and a Duxbury resident, said he’d always want to do something in his home community since moving to town three years ago. To PAC General Manager Tony Kelso, it sounded like a great idea. “It’s always been in the back of my mind that we should hook into the 4th of July hoopla,” Kelso said. A portion of the proceeds from the day, between 15-20 percent, will be going to support the 4th of July Committee. The event will be split into two shows, a family-oriented performance outside (weather permitting) beginning at 7 p.m, where popcorn and hotdogs will be served. A performance for adults will take place at 9 p.m. inside the Performing Arts Center. Laviolette’s career in comedy started at UMass Amherst in the Mission Improvable

ike a lot of men who never actually served in the military, I like to swagger a little at national holidays. Neither did I wear the rags of the radical left as well as some in my college days. Around here the voices from the right ring more often, but that may be a feature of my day job. I’m usually out in public when the older folks are loose.

political comments float by without response. I am, after all, selling groceries for someone else. But here comes Independence Day! Obama’s first as President!

Independence on the 4th
continued from page one

people having “no idea” of the real meaning of the Fourth of July. It wasn’t a hostile note. It was a gentle sadness that the holiday has been lost behind fireworks, lavish cook-outs and time off from work. We chatted briefly at the loss of a sense of history in which a few facts – times, dates, people and places – can give historical events new life in our thoughts and memories. We agreed that our childhoods were richer for having played Revolutionary War games along with cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians. Even in the latter, I remember nuanced elements of correction, with Apaches or Comanches played with tragic drama, brilliant guerrilla skills, or an urge for lasting peace. No kidding. We really played like that. My childhood friends are now NPR correspondents, brilliant working anthropologists, and other such geeks, and we lived in Falls Church, Virginia where the nation’s capital is a stone’s throw away, and the tides of forces North and South, Union and Confederacy, slave and free, patriot and loyalist have always surged even among the children. I grieve the loss of history. I reject the other customer comment, heard often enough to show its underlayment in our community. I’ve heard it from several over the years, always in a form like this: “Why can’t they learn English?” My favored response is prohibited at work, but I share it for you now: “They do, you toad, if they live here. We’re selling groceries to tourists! How can you sleep on a pillow where you’ve laid that fouled head of yours?” I can’t capture the visceral side of these comments when they spill out, or the look of revulsion these customers express when they see French and Spanish available on the cash register’s display screen. Nor can I capture their selfimportance. Depending on how frazzled I feel I may offer as a retort, “Actually, Portuguese would help more around here; so many of our customers are Brazilian.” Meanwhile, we as a nation wonder why we can’t find soldiers or investigators who speak Arabic, or Persian, or Dari, or Pashto. Foreign language training is hard for anyone, but Americans seem especially phobic, as if the simple act of pronouncing a foreign city’s name correctly is somehow foppish, worthy of the revulsion of a patriot. Independence Day marks the signing of one of the world’s most subversive documents, a polemic that declared once and for all that power is to be shaped and limited by the governed, and can be thrown off forever. How do suppose Ben Franklin pronounced “Paris?” Do you suppose he hated the sight of French?

Improvising laughs at PAC
es and the company employs around 45 people, Laviolette said. When he first moved to Duxbury, Laviolette started to make connections with the community, teaching improv classes at the South Shore Conservatory before connecting with the Performing Arts Center. “I’m always interested in being part of the community I’m in,” he said. For Kelso, Laviolette’s suggestion was part of a natural extension of the PAC from school-related functions to a more all-inclusive, adult-oriented slate of activities. “The PAC is an opportunity for Duxbury ... it should be for the whole community,” he said. “There’s such an op-

started dreaming of a place in town improv comics could call home. “We looked at Boston and said, there’s not professional improv theater here,” he said. When the group started to look around at spaces, they lucked into a theater on Hanover Street in the North End –– recently foreclosed upon because the buildings owner had illegally hooked into a neighbor’s electrical grid. “I think it had more to do with good timing and someone stealing electricity than anything,” he said with a laugh. Years later, the space is a thriving comedy club, with an in-house cast as well as a touring company. The 180-seat theater, has classrooms, offic-

portunity in the space to do more” Laviolette believes that the time is ripe for his type of show, as economic worries are keeping many people from traveling into Boston for entertainment. “Comedy is incredibly cathartic,” he said. “People want to talk about it, they want to make fun of the economy imploding ... that’s what comedians do.” He added that improv comedy is “incredibly accessible to everybody in the room.” Tickets are available the day of the event starting at 3 p.m. On Wednesday, tickets will be sold from 12-3 p.m. Call the PAC box office at 781-934-7612 for more information.

Pitching carries Legion
Duxbury’s arms stifle Pembroke bats in a 4-1 victory
Post 223 climbed over the .500 mark Friday on the backs of pitchers Richard Upson and Tyler Genereux, who combined for a 4-1 win over Pembroke Post 143 in Duxbury. Upson got the win, going five innings and striking out two. He pitched out of trouble by stranding Pembroke runners at third base in the first, second and fourth innings before Post 143 got to him for their lone run in the fifth. Genereux took over and pitched a perfect sixth inning and surrendered one hit in the seventh before slamming the door on Pembroke. “It was an awesome job by our pitching,” head coach Ryan Kane said. “I can’t say enough about Upson, he really battled and gave us an opportunity to win and Genereux came in in relief and just flooded the strike zone. that’s how you win ball games.” Post 223 took advantage of poor play in the field by Pembroke to score three unearned runs in the game. Genereux led off the bottom of the first by reaching on a fielding error by Pembroke third baseman Matt Sheehan and scored three batters later on a wild pitch. In the third, Danny Findley singled with one out and

for the win. Joe Coyne pitched two innings and struck out three for the save. The Dragons spread the offense around, as Duxbury catcher Danny Findley was a home run short of the cycle –– going 3-3 with 5 RBI. Left fielder Pat McWilliams was 2-3, with a solo home run, and 2 RBI. Third baseman Tyler Genereux was 2-4 and first baseman Colin Woods was 1-2, both added 3 runs. Right fielder Pat Garrity also chipped in with a double and 2 RBI.

Mike Russell to make it 3-0 Dragons. Duxbury’s other run came in the bottom of fifth when Joseph Coyne came off the bench to single, steal second and score on a single by Matt Savard. “That was a big hit by Savard,” Kane said. “As a whole,

it was a good team win. We did a better job of putting the ball in play and putting the pressure on them.” Post 223 continued their winning ways on Sunday, topping Hawkeye 12-7. Duxbury starter Jeff Blout went five innings, gave up five runs (one unearned) and stuck out eight
