“You have to know the past to understand the present.” –– Carl Sagan


he Old Colony Model T Club’s cul-de-sac tour on Sunday concluded at Duxbury Beach with a trip across the Powder Point Bridge (left). The scene was reminiscent of this 1915 photo (above). Although more modern vehicles are usually seen on the bridge, the photos demonstrate how little has changed for the wooden bridge, first opened in 1892. Photos by Becca Manning, Clipper archives.


School start change stays
Times compressed 15 minutes; earliest Alden pick up 7 a.m.
After being asked, for the second meeting in a row, to reverse the decision to change Duxbury’s school start times, the School Committee again stuck by their vote. The topic of school start times has dominated the last three School Committee meetings. On Feb. 4, the committee voted to essentially “flip” the start times of the middle and high schools with Alden, so the teenage students could get more sleep. The move provoked outrage from parents, who said the decision was made too quickly,

result of an effort that started as far back as 2000, when a group of parents decided Duxbury’s students needed a place to go. The organization eventually found a home in the Wright Building, and has been hosting coffee houses, classes, an entrepreneur program and more, while providing a place for students to drop in between classes to work on homework, chat with peers or just relax.

The DSU is a non-profit organization. They charge membership fees, however, membership only covers 35 percent of the cost of running the facility. They pay rent to the town (the Wright building is owned by Duxbury) and pay their own utilities. “The economy has really affected us,” said Executive Director Sue Lawrence.

A college student from Duxbury was seriously injured trying to break up a fight in Oneonta, New York over the weekend. Greg Polcari, of Prior Farm Road, was hurt as he tried to separate two men fighting outside a bar early Saturday morning, according to Oneonta Police Chief Joe Redmond. Around 2:10 a.m., Peresse Jackson, 22, and an unidentified man were having an argument when Polcari tried to step in and calm things down. “Mr. Polcari may have tried to be the mediator,” Redmond said. After the two men were separated, Jackson circled around a few people and came back to Polcari, according to police. “He went up and punched Greg in the face, breaking his nose and knocking him down,” Redmond said. Polcari fell down a few steps and hit the back of his head on a landing, injuring his head. He was taken to a local hospital, A.O. Fox Memorial, before being flown to Albany

On Monday, Duxbury selectmen granted a liquor license to Johnson Turf and Golf Inc., the current managers of the town-owned North Hill golf course, but Chairman Betsy Sullivan said there “was no joy whatsoever” in doing so because Johnson is suing the town over not winning a new long term management contract. Selectmen voted unanimously to give Doug Johnson, owner of Johnson Turf and Golf Inc., of Weston, an all alcohol liquor license but added the following conditions: that the selectmen could rescind the liquor license if Johnson no longer had legal control of North Hill and that Johnson must pay all fees owed to the town including a payment in lieu of real estate taxes for fiscal year 2010. The license was also conditional upon Johnson undergoing alcohol server training and having all his employees have a background check. In December, selectmen did not renew the liquor license at North Hill because Johnson’s ten-year management contract expired on Dec. 31 and his company no longer had control of the property.

North Hill is a nine-hole public golf course with a clubhouse on Merry Avenue. A new five-year management contract was put out to bid twice by the town, in October and January. The first time, the town rejected all bids because Town Manager Richard MacDonald determined that the state’s bidding law had not been properly followed. After the second round of bidding in January, town officials chose Calm Golf of Rockland to run North Hill. Calm Golf’s bid of $512,500 over five years was higher than Johnson’s bid of $420,000, which was the lowest of all the bidders. The higher bid translates into more money for the town. Johnson sued Duxbury in Middlesex Superior Court claiming town officials had conspired against him. Citing their track record managing North Hill and other municipal golf courses around the state, Johnson challenged the bidding process and claimed the town’s choice was unqualified. Following a series of legal filings and a successful injunction in Middlesex County, Johnson remains in control of North Hill Country Club for the duration of the 2009 golf season. Duxbury Town Counsel Robert Troy said the court’s decision to keep Johnson as the manager for 2009 was not directly related to granting a liquor license. He said the selectmen “may issue” a license but were not obligated to do so. “It is separate and independent of the operation of the golf course,” said Troy, adding that it was “very important” to stipulate in the license that the manager had to be in “actual legal control of the premises.”

Granting the liquor license to Johnson didn’t sit well with selectmen, although they did it. “I have a great deal of difficulty in approving a license when we’re in litigation with someone,” said Sullivan. Selectman Jon Witten agreed. He said that while Johnson had done an “outstanding job” maintaining the golf course, he was “very uncomfortable” in granting the license while there were ongoing litigations. Johnson’s attorney, Stephen Follansbee, responded: “We are equally uncomfortable and we would love to work out the differences.” Witten said he was viewing the permitting process as more of a renewal than a new license, although Troy said it was to be considered new. According to Follansbee, Johnson had never had any problems or complaints regarding its liquor license in the 13 years it operated North Hill. Follansbee gave selectmen a check for $4,000, a payment in lieu of taxes for fiscal year 2009, which began last July. Troy said Johnson should pay the fiscal year 2010 payment before he got the license. “I think it is important that we get this money,” said Troy. The hours of operation under the liquor license remain the same. The bar can open from 8 am to 11 p.m. on weekdays and on Saturdays and from noon to 11 p.m. on Sunday. Selectmen also unanimously approved a common victualler’s license for Johnson to sell food at the clubhouse but made it subject to the same conditions as the liquor license.

Meet the DEF: The Duxbury Education Foundation is a community-based, all volunteer organization, whose mission is to provide alternative funding for innovative and enriching programs in the Duxbury Public Schools. The DEF receives, administers, and disburses funds for educational, scientific and charitable purposes to be used to develop, support and assist programs that benefit the students, teachers, and staff of the Duxbury public school system. Founded in 1989, after Proposition 2½ budget cutbacks had forced the school systems to cancel many fine arts and enrichment programs, the DEF is a private, not-for-profit organization. The DEF Board is comprised of between 15 and 17 trustees who volunteer their time to raise funds and review and administer grants. Any teacher or administrator in the Duxbury schools, or anyone with a program designed to enrich the Duxbury students, may apply in writing for a grant. Funds are made available for DEF grants through generous contributions donated by Duxbury families and local corporate sponsorship. Community events such as the Spelling Bee, Entertaining for Education, Divots for Duxbury and the DEF Annual Appeal are all ways in which the DEF raises funds. Over the past twenty years the DEF have funded almost $1,000,000 in grants to the Duxbury Public Schools. Visit www.duxburyeducationfoundation.org. for more information.

Selectmen approve farmers market
By susanna sheehan, Clipper staff susanna@duxBuryClipper.Com


Duxbury Clipper

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Organizers of the proposed Duxbury farmers market received the seal of approval from town officials to hold their event at the Tarkiln Community Center beginning this summer. The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously on Monday to allow the newly formed non-profit group, Duxbury Farmers and Artisan’s Regional Market, Inc., to use the parking lot at Tarkiln on Summer Street. The market will open in July and run until mid-October from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. It will offer fresh local produce

as well as arts and crafts from local artists. It would be similar to other successful farmers markets in Cohasset, Plymouth and Marshfield. The selectmen’s approval was contingent upon the market’s organizers showing an acceptable parking plan and it could be suspended if conflicts arose during the renovation of the Tarkiln Twin Schoolhouses. Town Meeting 2009 approved spending Community Preservation Act funds on repairs that will allow the historic building to re-open as a community center. Proponents said they felt they had satisfied all of the

selectmen’s most recent concerns including creating a registered non-profit organization and making sure there would be enough insurance if problems arose because Tarkiln Community Center is the town-owned. Paul Taberner of Church Street is a lawyer who helped the farmers/artisans market supporters organize into a registered non-profit. Doing so addressed selectmen Betsy Sullivan’s concerns from two weeks ago about how the organizers would handle the fees paid to them by vendors. He said that a farmers market was held in the past at Tarkiln and that it would be “a credit to the town” if it was brought back. Regarding Sullivan’s concerns about insurance, Barbara Ripley, assistant to the town manager, said she learned that the town is covered by its insurance if anything happens during the farmers market. She said that the market’s vendors must carry general liability coverage and should add the town as an additional insured party. Ripley agreed with market supporter Linda Collari that not many claims arise from farmers markets. Sullivan added that Health Agent Tracy Mayo will be attending a seminar on farmers markets and that she has been getting many calls from potential vendors. Town Manager Richard MacDonald wanted a plan showing traffic and parking and said the farmers market may have to pay for a police

in Other BUsiness, seLectmen: • Received an update on the Tarkiln project from Tag Carpenter, chairman of the Tarkiln Study Committee. Carpenter said the committee members felt they had fulfilled their charge of identifying preservation options for the Tarkiln Community Center. Selectmen asked Carpenter to submit names of volunteers who wanted to work on another Tarkiln committee adding that they would discuss a new committee at an upcoming meeting. • Approved four aquaculture licenses for existing shellfish grant holders. They approved a two-acre site for Mark Bouthillier for oyster grow-out to replace two of his three acres that can only contain oyster seed in nursery racks on the bottom. They approved a similar license for William “Skip” Bennett for a .78 acre site also for oysters to grow to maturity on the bottom of the bay. In addition, selectmen approved one new acre for Greg Morris for oyster grow out and one new acre for John Brawley also for oyster grow out. • Learned that the police department has been awarded a $26,596 grant to upgrade its emergency dispatch equipment. • Learned that the town has begun official discussions with Verizon for the communications company to bring FiOs to Duxbury and is continuing its negotiations with Comcast for a cable television contract. • Agreed to have a discussion at a future meeting about what to do next about the need for updated police and fire stations. • Accepted the resignation of Joe Maher from the Zoning Board of Appeals and of Jay Curran from the Open Space and Recreation Committee. There are currently three vacancies on the Open Space and Recreation Committee.

detail. He said that decision would be up to Police Chief Mark Deluca. Despite the organizers adjusting their schedule to end the market at 4:30 p.m. before baseball games at the Tarkiln fields begin at 5:30 p.m., Sullivan said she was still nervous about farmers market traffic interfering with vehicles arriving for the games. However, Selectman Christopher Donato pointed out that by July the youth baseball season is not as busy as it is during the spring and early summer. He

felt the market should be able to stay open until 6 p.m. to serve commuters. Sullivan said selectmen could revisit the hours during the summer if it was apparent there were no traffic conflicts. Tag Carpenter, chairman of the Tarkiln Study Committee, said he anticipated only a few weeks of disruption during the building’s renovation. He said the one project that would disrupt the farmers market would be the installation of a new septic system. Other projects, such as a new roof and new bathrooms, were more shortterm, he said.

School start time stays
mittee, urging them to reverse the vote. The committee said they’d pick up the subject again on April 1. At the April 1 meeting, the committee heard from parents again. However, they did not vote again on the start time issue –– although an alternate plan, proposed by member John Heinstadt, was voted down 3-2. Heinstadt’s plan would have had the high school students in class from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Chandler in session from 8:55 a.m. to 3:10 p.m., and Alden kids in school from 9:35 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. Superintendent Susan Skeiber said she did not recommend the plan because it would have the elementary kids getting out too late, and pointed to research that showed elementary school students don’t absorb as much information in the afternoon. “Educationally i don’t believe that is a viable alternative,” she said. There will be a slight change to the plan voted at the Feb. 4 meeting. Skeiber said that she looked into the bus schedules and was able to “compress” the bus times by 15 minutes. This will make the start time for the Alden students 7:45 a.m. instead of 7:30 a.m., and the earliest any student would be picked up would be 7 a.m. Skeiber said she hoped this would alleviate the fears of some parents that the younger students would be waiting in the dark for a bus in the early morning hours. Although some parents said the compression was a step in the right direction, the School Committee heard again from many parents opposed to the change. “If we don’t go back and go through this process, we’re potentially opening ourselves up to a liability,” said Debbie Leppannen. She referenced information put together by a group of parents, and said that the effects of the change on Alden students had not been fully considered. Echoing the sentiments expressed at earlier meeting, most parents said their main concern was the lack of information on how the change would effect the younger students. “There’s nothing in either camps of research that show the early start time will be a benefit to the Alden students,” said Christine McLaughlin. Other parents said the School Committee should reverse the vote because they did not follow their own policies in failing to solicit public opinion. “To say this is cost-neutral just means you haven’t got the kinks worked out yet,” said Jennifer Thorn. “You cannot give me one good reason why any of you should continue to support this initative.”

changing OF the gUarD: Outgoing school committee chairwoman anne Ward moves to let the new chairman, george cipolletti take over after the board reorganized Wednesday night.

Other parents defended the School Committee, and criticized the tactics of the parents opposed to the change. One parent said a sleep researcher she worked with was harassed over e-mail by a parent who disagreed with his findings. “Courtesy and respect must prevail,” said Mary Jane Noel, a former School Committee member who said she could see “both sides” of the issue. “Citiizen participation is so important ... but let’s not give it a bad name,” she said. School Committee members were blunt in their assessment of the communication breakdown. “I think we can admit that we should have handled that better ... I don’t there’s much to talk about there.” said School Committee Chairman George Cipolletti. “In the last three months we’ve been open to anybody and everybody.” said Karen Wong. “I’ve put my career on hold ... to be available to the community.” However, Wong said the fact that the process was flawed wasn’t enough of a reason to reverse the change. “I think delaying this, even spending a lot of time talking about this now, is just prolonging the agony,” she said. “This is supposed to help people, this is supposed to help families.” Heinstadt and Maureen Connolly, who voted against the original change, disagreed. “It has divided the com-

munity,” said Heinstadt. “we can say that we could have done things differently, but we still have the ability to do it correctly.” “We’ve done a lot of listening since the vote,” added Connolly. “I think we can all agree it should have been prior to the vote.” Connolly suggested delaying the change for a year, but her proposal was never formally voted upon. Heinstadt pointed out that lack of sleep, however backed up by science, is only one of many stresses affecting older students. “Sometimes we get into the mindset that we know better how to raise somebody else’s kids than the parents do,” he said. “None of us know what goes on in an individual family.” Skeiber said that she has been meeting with various groups to work out after school options for Alden students, including Before and After Dark, Duxbury’s Recreation Department, South Shore Conservatory, the Duxbury Student Union and more. She also said the district will be doing studies and collecting baseline data so they can study the change once it takes effect. “My responsibiltiy is to look at the needs of 3,400 children from preschool through grade 12,” said Skeiber. “we recognize that there are concerns and we are committeed to addressing those.”

The Student Union does some fundraising, but like many non-profits in a down economy, they took in less money than expected over the previous year. They are looking for more residents to donate –– both money and time –– to keep the DSU running. “We need more folks to be involved to keep this wonderful place alive,” said Laura Smith. In addition to the economic challenges, Lawrence said the DSU is also struggling with some misconceptions. Many people believe the organization is either part of the school district or is under the umbrella of the town. Although they use a town-owned building, they are completely separate –– meaning they’re on their own when it comes to closing the budget gap. The group has made efforts to cut costs, including

reducing staff hours. They have completely exhausted all capital and endowment money. Lawrence has even taken a pay cut to help make up the shortage. “i believe in this,” she said. “If that’s what it’s going to take, then that’s what it’s going to take.” Although the DSU’s location makes for a natural connection with the schools, the parents who are on the board and volunteer for events see it as more than just a place for kids to drop in after school. The people behind the Student Union’s creation saw it as taking an active role in developing Duxbury’s young students into leaders and creating connections with the community. “It’s that bridge between school and community,” said founding member Debby Jewell. “We are a community of children who can lead, we need to foster that. Our dream is that this is a place that they invent.”

“The big picture was to have it for kids, run by kids,” added Lawrence. “The options are endless here, of how to grow and foster our children here in this town.” “We are training that next generation,” said Jewell. Programs at the the Student Union foster responsibility and leadership, Lawrence said, such as the Blender, the smoothie bar at the DSU, which is run by students. DSU members also made Valentine’s Day cards for seniors at the Village, and are currently working on a project where potted plants will be placed around town. A recent book drive netted 2 1/2 tons of books that will be distributed to various groups around town. “We want to build on those kinds of mentorship programs,” said Smith. Other groups use the center, such as the Duxbury Police, who host their RAD selfdefense training in the Wright Building, and various sports boosters and clubs have met there as well. DSU supporters say they’ve been hearing a hue and cry from parents since they announced plans to close the center. “That’s been encouraging,” said Jewell. Others said the everyday occurrences at the Student Union give them the motivation to push for the organization’s success. Smith described a young student who came into the center depressed after a long day, but the ability to come to a room full of friends rather than an empty house cheered her up. “You know that’s a moment that could have gone either way,” she said. “That’s when you know this is the kind of place that works.” Anyone wishing to donate to the Duxbury Student Union or to learn more about the organization can visit duxburystudentunion.com.

This year, the marshals are Mary Barclay and and Gil and Roberta MacNab. “They do so much in our town, it’s just amazing,” Edgar said. “They have a lot to do with the heritage of our town.” Right now, the committee is looking for bands to play at the beach party. Bands will often play on the backs of flatbed trailers along the parade route, but picking the band for the beach party is a more selective process. Prospective musicians have to fill out an application and submit a CD of music. Applications are due by April 15. “We’d like it to be people who are from Duxbury or have a Duxbury connection,” said Edgar. “we also want it to be good beach music.” Edgar said her favorite thing about the parade is how

Anybody can come and have fun.” The Fourth of July Activities Committee consists of about 20 volunteers who coordinate the fundraising, parade and beach party planning, and overall logistics for the entire celebration.

School, parents need to get past trust issues
t the Feb. 4 School Committee meeting, after the vote was taken to change the school start times, a parent got up and let out a loud sigh. “Same old School Committee,” she said. “They didn’t listen.” Is that fair? No. You might disagree with the committee’s decision, but the School Committee members sincerely believe they are working in the best interest of Duxbury’s children. They gave parents fairly unfettered access to the microphone during three School Committee meetings, putting a lot of other business on hold. However, perception is reality. And that simple statement from a parent encapsulates the trust issues both school officials and parents are still struggling with. School Committee member John Heinstadt, who was against the change, put it even more succinctly: “Sometimes we get into the mindset that we know better how to raise somebody else’s kids than the parents do.” This statement goes to the heart of many of the problems that have surfaced over the years between the district and parents. Duxbury is filled with highly educated people who are extremely involved in their children’s education. If they perceive that decisions are being made over their heads, they’re not going to be happy. The School Committee made major mistakes here. They assumed current Alden parents would be familiar with a change that was first discussed six years ago. While national data clearly backs up the fact that teenagers benefit from more sleep, how the information would apply to Duxbury specifically didn’t get enough attention. And the one public forum held on the matter felt contrived and only reinforced the idea, in parents’ minds, that the change was inevitable. The parent group opposed to the change isn’t without blame here either. The tone of the opposition (from some, not all) has been overly hostile. There was far too much shouting from the audience, disingenuous applause, and interrupting during the School Committee meetings. Parents also seem to be hanging years of bad blood on the current School Committee and administration. If Duxbury is ever going to get past this atmosphere of distrust, people are going to have to stop holding the current administration responsible for the sins of the former. If you’ve ever spent a few moments talking to a Duxbury High School student, and see how bright and mature he or she is, you know both the school district and the parents have to be doing something right. There should be no reason this divide can’t be bridged, for the benefit of all students. –– J. Graeber


The Duxbury Student Union moved into the Wright building two years ago. Now they may close for good due to a lack of funding.

he Duxbury Student Union needs your help. For the past two years we have been the place for students to reconnect, the place to go between music and sports practices, the place to get a head start on homework, seek advice, even learn basic business skills through the Blender Café. In the evenings and on weekends we have been the place to work on a community service project, share music and drama talents, learn a defense course, take a yoga class, meet with a study group join a club or invent a club, meet with old friends or make new friends. The DSU has been the bridge from school to community, a place where students can apply school lessons to life lessons, a place kids connect, kids create, and kids call their own. Their experiences have been as varied as they are themselves. But now, the Student Union is at a crossroad. Most residents of the town are unaware that the Student Union receives no financial support from the town, nor are we part of the school budget. We are not a town entity but rather a volunteer driven, non-profit organization funded through memberships, ongoing fundraising activities and the generosity of local donors. magine a Duxbury where maintaining its natural beauty and character is paramount while providing affordable housing for its teachers, firefighters, veterans, peace officers and other town employees. A place where the Town’s children can return as young adults and have a real chance at buying their first home. A place where its residents become elderly and are provided quality choices so that they can continue to live in the town that they love, where

Therefore the DSU is responsible for everything from program expenses to utilities to cleaning. Raising money has always been a challenge. We have, over the years, tried to be creative in some of the fundraising events we have held. We have always offered memberships that are affordable and special events with inexpensive cover charges. And, of course, we are most grateful for the support of those parents and donors who have opened their hearts and their pocketbooks. But, the simple fact is that we face a serious financial problem and unless we find a solution within a short period of time the Student Union will be forced to close May 1, and cease operation. Financially, these are extraordinarily difficult times. We

Fifty Five Years ago this week: Cane Tradition. The 1954 edition of the Clipper reported on a Duxbury tradition that began in 1939 when the late Dr. Reuben Peterson of Powder Point gave the town an ebony walking cane to be presented to the oldest female citizen of Duxbury and passed down as such. The Clipper continued to report the names of the women who were in possession of the cane from the onset of this tradition until this issue in 1954, and even beyond. There is also a cane donated by the Boston Post for the oldest man. According to Town Clerk Nancy Oates, as the years went on, it was difficult to recover the canes after the holder died, so the canes are now held securely in the Duxbury Town Hall. Forty Years ago: The Art Complex Corporation of Duxbury announced the site of the Art Complex Museum to be built in June of 1969. The design of the building was created by architect Richard Owen Abbott of Boston.

was absolutely appalled at the blatant disregard our School Committee members (with exception to Mr. Heinstadt and Ms. Connolly) had relative to the parents who spoke against the time change last week at the School Committee meeting. The explanations, supposed “researched” data, misinformed and biased retorts the other committee members (all parents of children not in the Alden system or even in the school system any more for that matter) made were ridiculous. I cannot believe that the members, comprised of Mr. Cippoletti, Ms. Skeiber, Ms. Wong and Ms. Ward actually admitted to those in attendance, that they did not do the proper amount of research for this change. Mr. Cippoletti made this admission twice! Right there should have been the point that those committee members conceded to their original decision, made the fair decision to go back and indeed conduct research at a more detailed level, and re-visit this decision when they were fully educated on this matter. What most of the people who spoke were trying to convey is that you clearly failed to take into consideration the Alden children. If the high schoolaged child benefits from this, then so be it, but you failed to consider the other children. Why, too, when given all the information relative to the busing schedule, was Mr. Heinstadt able to figure out right there in front of him on a piece of paper a solution to the busing schedule – why was this not taken into consideration? Additionally, why were the people who took the time to put together a Power Point presentation to you, our elected School Committee members, denied time on the agenda? Instead we had to sit through a presentation about what the 21st century is going to bring us technologically and educationally? You don’t think we as a society are quite aware of the advances that will occur by simply looking at the current advancements our world has made in these areas? The committee dragged its feet on the approach to the topic of the school time change because they knew there was power in numbers in that room that night! You childishly chatted and joked and skirted the topic for as long as you could and then on the reciprocal side of the meeting, complained how is was going on well past midnight. Anne Ward made mention of “…I know several Alden families that are in favor of this change.” To this we ask “Where were they?” There was not one single family, spokesperson, representative in support for the time change at this meeting – not one and yet the majority who were present were simply ignored. Anne Ward also made mention to the “numerous after school programs” that are made available to the Alden students, but failed to mention that they are at a cost to the Alden families. And lastly – to those of you who are finding fault and saying that “These moms who are complaining and making mention of the affects on the working families – half of them don’t even work!” To you I say this – Thank goodness for them. Thank goodness, I can say, as a working mom that these women are taking the time to do this. I would love to conduct more extensive research myself and rally more folks together myself, but as a working mother, I do not have the time. So, thank goodness the few in the group that are indeed stay-athome moms are using their stay at home time in such a productive manner and doing the leg work, conducting the research, putting together factual and actual Power Point presentations (again, unfortunately only to be denied by the School Committee members), making the phone calls, sending out informative e-mails (not slanderous or accusatory e-mails like one School Committee member chose to do in a very biased and unprofessional manner the day of the meeting). Thank goodness for them taking their time that they have and using it to represent the families in this community. My last point will be what I mentioned when I was at the microphone that night. I can only hope, Ms. Skeiber, that you have, ready on deck, a study that shall be conducted as to the progress and/or failure of this time change next year. Not months into the school year, but right away – in September at the start of the school year. You could, at the very least, afford us that. One last observation I made and found to be beyond ironical – as I was departing the meeting at 12:13 a.m., there was a bus dropping off a group of High School students in front of the high school. What is Duxbury High School offering that dictates high school kids getting off a bus at thirteen minutes after midnight – oh…wait…but our high school kids are sleep deprived?

Author Brian Lies visits Chandler School
On Tuesday, Feb 24 and March 3, second graders and first graders respectively were excited to meet Duxbury author/illustrator Brian Lies. He read his new book, “Bats at the Library,” as well as his all-time favorite, “Bats at the Beach” to attentive audiences. Mr. Lies explained to the students how much time and practice goes into a completed, published book. He shared his many drafts and revisions, as well as his illustrating process. The students enjoyed seeing a copy of Mr. Lies’s own second grade drawings and saw how the author has developed into a successful illustrator and writer through practice and hard work. Mr. Lies explained how he develops his ideas for writing, as well as the stages of writing and illustrations of his work. He emphasized that writing and drawing takes a lot of time and that “practice makes better.” The students were totally engaged. This Duxbury author really understood the level of the audience he was addressing. In addition to Mr. Lies’s presentation, the second graders were then treated to a writer’s workshop lesson in which Brian Lies went into each second grade classroom. He taught the students how to “hook” their readers by baiting the hook with a solid topic sentence. The students practiced this skill under the direction of Mr. Lies. With a focus on our writing curriculum this year, Brian Lies’s visit provided a wonderful motivation for budding authors. Both unique experiences were provided through the generous funding of the Chandler PTA. Also, the first and second grade teachers are grateful to the PTA for purchasing “Bats at the Library” for each of their classroom libraries, as well as a copy for the Chandler Library.

A visit to the Art Complex
he Art Complex Museum is a hidden gem – literally. The building is set back from the parking lot’s entrance off Alden Street, so someone driving by might not even see the distinctive rolling curves of the museum’s roof (which were modeled after the waves at Duxbury Beach.) But those who do stop will discover a place where art, family, learning and community all intersect. The Art Complex Museum was founded in 1971 by Carl and Edith Weyerhaeuser. Carl Weyerhaeuser’s interest in art started at a young age; when he graduated from Harvard, he turned down his father’s offer of a car for a Rembrandt print.

Although Carl Weyerhaeuser had established quite a collection, especially of prints, by the 1970s, the idea for the museum itself came from Edith. “My mother had the idea of building a museum and doing something with Dad’s wonderful collection,” said the museum’s current director, Charles Weyerhaeuser. She also came up with the name for the museum. She had a vision of the place being more than just a collection of things hanging on the wall, but rather a place where the community could come learn about art, hear music, walk the grounds, or take a painting lesson. “It really is more than just a museum,” said Laura Doherty, who works at the museum. Weyerhaeuser pointed out Kathy Dowling and Hadley Wilson inspect a painting in the Bengtz Gallery during the Duxbury Art Association’s annual gallery show- that original plans for the muing. seum included a restaurant,

and things like the outdoor summer concerts that have become an annual tradition were always part of his parents’ vision. “My father and mother loved having music in their home,” he said. The Weyerhaeusers had spent summers in Duxbury and had fallen in love with the rural, seaside community. They bought the Judah Alden home (now a studio where many classes are taught) and built the museum on 11 acres of land that used to be part of John Alden’s farm. To help realize their dream, the Weyerhaeusers enlisted Ture Bengtz, a Scandinavian artist Carl Weyerhaeuser had met at the Museum School in Boston. Bengtz helped conceptualize the building itself

Thistles and roses

weavers agree to send all children in the family under 15 years of age to school full-time, and one additional woman in the family to school part-time. The program has a rich Web site – www.arzurugs. org – with loads of information, pictures, and a piercing seven-minute video to tell the story of the world’s poorest women weaving the world’s most beautiful rugs. Instead of exploitation, Arzu promises hope. “Arzu” means “hope” in Dari, one of the major languages of Afghanistan. Arzu (and Razia) will work with regional and local leaders, including traditional local councils before working in a particular locale. Arzu doesn’t go where they are not invited. Individual families are engaged, including agreements with a male head of the household (usually a husband or a brother.) Where it’s possible and needed, the Arzu program supports other community needs such as health care, and is even encouraging farmers to begin growing flowers for use in the perfume industry, an alternative to poppy cultivation. Many of the weavers are Hazaras, the ethnic group native to the fiercely rugged Hindu Kush, mountainous spine of Afghanistan, while others are Turkmen. Hazaras are historically the poorest, most downtrodden group in Afghanistan, often relegated to the most menial, objectionable forms of employment. Yet these groups have always produced the most beautiful, highest quality rugs. And while fair-deal policies help the safety, security, and health of the weavers and Azru’s staff, the traditional methods employed will already help the environment. Dyes and materials are all natural products grown locally, as they always have been. Wool is carded, spun, and dyed by hand. Many of the patterns are handed down through countless generations. These aren’t Job Lot rugs. I inquired about two that I loved, “Illumination” and “Hope.” They both ran just under $6,000. Both were around eight feet, one nearly square and the other five feet wide. My online inquiry was swiftly answered. Each pattern may not be available. These rugs can take as long as a year to weave. Most are traditional patterns, but there are two lines of contemporary designs as well. Weavers often use leftover wool to weave a modern pattern – bars of color, for example. “Hope” is the program’s signature pattern, a grand blend of geometric and representational art said to be the oldest (2,500 years) pile rug ever discovered. From the Pazyryk Valley in what is now Siberia, the pattern seems to me to cross national boundaries and cultural stereotypes, with horsemen, stags, and even a few griffons (or are they dragons?) The Taliban would hate the pattern, but if you tend tolerance like a rose, the thistle of destruction may blow away in the wind.

Baseball falls to the state champs
The Duxbury High School baseball team didn’t exactly pick an easy opener for its 2009 season.

Plymouth North Duxbury

7 2

Facing defending Division II state champion Plymouth North High School last Wednesday afternoon on the road, the Dragons faced the normally lousy spring weather, along with a talented squad that went 26-0 in 2008. When the afternoon was over, Duxbury absorbed a 7-2 non-league loss to the Eagles and pitching ace, Joe Flynn. Going against the Plymouth hurler is close to hopeless these days, as the righthander went 12-0 in 2008 and is 25-2 in his high school career. He proved it in the opener by striking out 13 Dragons, and twice had strings of five straight K’s. After mowing down the first 11 batters he faced, Flynn faced opposing pitcher Phil Sciretta, who doubled with two outs in the top of the fourth inning and came home on another double by senior

centerfielder Shane DiBona to cut the deficit to 4-1. Duxbury crept closer in the top of the sixth when senior shortstop Sean Cross reached on an infield hit and came home on a double by senior third baseman Tyler Genereux, who had replaced Sciretta in the fifth and retired all three batters. Any thought of ending Plymouth North’s winning streak came to an end in the bottom of the sixth when a double, a base on balls, an error, a wild pitch and two passed balls accounted for the final Eagle runs. It now appears that the weather will be presenting problems for Coach Barney Earle, as Friday’s game with Hingham was postponed due to rain, along with Monday’s game in Quincy. The Dragons are hoping to get in their game in Scituate on Wednesday afternoon at 3:30, followed by Thursday’s home opener against Silver Lake. Should the rain continue this week, scheduling makeups could become a problem, as the Dragons are already on the docket for three games a week until the last week of the regular season.

fell in his varsity debut after taking the second set (6-4) against junior Keegan Allhyarian to even the match. Norwell’s #2 singles player rallied for a 6-4 third-set win. Sophomore newcomer Alex Holopainen put in a superb performance at #3 singles, coming back from a firstset loss at 6-1. After shaking off some nerves in his varsity debut, Holopainen used some big shots and toughness to beat experienced senior Jon Anderson, 6-4/7-5, in the last two sets. The #1 doubles pairing went just the way Coach John Bunar hoped it would, as TJ Scholberg and Connor Dunphy dominated 6-2/6-1. The Dragons’ #2 doubles tandem wasn’t as crisp, but junior Stephen Day and senior TJ

Cameron won the big points when they needed it to win the clinching match for the Dragons over Tim Dalferno and Tim Healy, 7-6 (4)/ 6-4. ”This was a good start for us against a good team,” said Bunar. “I was especially pleased with our performances at #2 and #3 singles. Both of those kids loosened up after some early jitters and I saw what I needed to see from them. They will be very good for us this year.” The team returned to action on Wednesday and duplicated their first win with a 4-1 victory over Sandwich. Minahan suffered a tough loss at #1 singles when he lost to junior Luke Martin, 6-7/3-6, while Muncey continued his strong play with a 6-1/6-4 victory over Jeff Aiello at #2 singles. Holopainen had the marathon match of the afternoon at #3 singles where he came back from a first-set loss of 6-4 to defeat Pat Farrington, 6-4/6-2 for the victory. Scholberg and Dunphy cruised to a 6-3/6-3 over Kyle Clifford and Erik Dahl at #1 doubles in a match that was never in doubt, while Day and Cameron were the first players off the court with a 6-2/6-3 win over Ben Siranosian and Taylor Poloway. “We are beating teams comprised of more upperclassmen than our group,” said Bunar. “So far, our skill is besting our inexperience.”

Sophomore Michaela Dowd showed that the Lady Dragons are competitive once again at #1 singles, as she rallied from a first-set loss (4-6) with a pair of convincing wins at 6-2/6-0. Annie Gluskin was the first Lady Dragon off the court in singles, as she won her #3 singles match, 6-3/6-5. Liza Thomas put in extra time in her three-set match at #2 singles, winning the opening set 6-3. Exhaustion set, forcing the senior to lose her match with a pair of losses (5-7/2-6). Senior captain Jane Morgan and junior Cory Tucker played a strong game, and

Girls lacrosse wins big
Sophomore Siobhan McCarthy (6) and junior Katie Griffin (5) accounted for more than half of Duxbury’s goals in the Lady Dragons’ 20-3 opening game win over Hanover on Thursday in Duxbury. Senior Meghan Muncey also had a big game with four goals, while junior Caitlin Burke chipped in with three. The Lady Dragons are scheduled for a 4 p.m. game with Quincy on Wednesday afternoon, then travel to Hingham for a key Patriot League match-up with the Harborwomen starting at 3:30.

OFF TO A FAST START: Sophomore Alex Holopainen returns a forehand in the pre-season. The #3 singles player has had an outstanding start with victories over Norwell and Sandwich.

but time ran out during the overcast afternoon, as the Dragons had already wrapped up the meet. Skipper Andrew Sommer and crew Ian White sailed the first boat for the Dragons, while crew Addy White took over for Ian in the fourth race. Zach Runci teamed up with Alyssa Siefert, while Julia Leonard had Leo Connolly on board for the afternoon. Allison Shane skippered the #4 boat, with Chelsea Maguire and Mike Reney sharing the crew spot. On Saturday the Dragons sailed at Portsmouth Abbey where they took on the hosts first and were scheduled to take on St. George’s. With the forecast calling for 20 knot winds from the west, the protected area made for very puff and shifty winds ranging from 10-18 knots by the time the

races got rolling. Duxbury came out strong and won the first two races, but got a little too complacent and dropped the next two to even the match at 2-2. In the fifth and deciding race, Duxbury come through for a 3-2 win. St. George’s came out for round two and hit the water ready to go. But after one race, the winds picked up and forced cancellation of the rest of the afternoon, as cold and dangerous conditions took its toll.

Golfers start play on Thursday
The DHS girls’ golf team is the last varsity squad to start its season, and it gets underway on Thursday when the Lady Dragons take on Barnstable at the DYC course. Coach Jack Stoddard returns a host of players from last year, but lost two excellent captains in Meg Wyrtzen and Jen Geary, who led the squad to the southern division title with a 9-1 record. It’s a big hole for Stoddard to fill, and he is hoping that 2009 captains Emma Kellar, Colleen O’Connor, and Sophia Campanelli can lead a group of underclassmen and drive them toward another league title.

Stoddard and his girls have had little time to prepare for the season, as weather has played a major factor and the pins were just recently placed on the DYC greens. “At this point I really don’t know what to expect,” said Stoddard. “Last year we didn’t win that much at #1, but we had enough depth in #1-#6 to win most of our matches.” If Stoddard was to pick his starters right now he’d most likely go with sophomore Briana Connolly at #1. A familiar name in Duxbury girls’ golf, Connolly takes the slot once held by older sister, Kerri, a sophomore player at the University of Maryland. “I really think between

Briana, Kellar, and O’Connor we could have three of the top golfers in our division,” said the Duxbury coach. “Connolly has the best swing on the team, while Kellar has the ability to hit all her shots. O’Connor is the team’s biggest hitter and I think you’ll see her out-hit most of her opponents.” While the top three spots look secure, Stoddard says it is a wide open race for the remaining slots. Five returnees look like they are in the hunt for those slots and include sophomores Kara Falcone and Lorin Gerraughty, senior Sophia Campanelli, along with juniors Kendall Johnson and Maria Varonko.

“Falcone has really worked on her game since last year and I expect a big improvement, while Johnson is a very smart player who figures out her opponents’ weakness and tries to exploit them,” said Stoddard. “Campanelli is the best putter on the team, while Varonko and Gerraughty have worked on their game and seem to have moved up a notch in their competitiveness.” Another group of newcomers promises to push the returnees and they include sophomores Kelly Johnson, Molly O’Sullivan, Meghan Woomer, and junior Lila Haffey. “Kelly and Molly have really shown an interest in improving their games. They

have shown up for extra sessions after our regular practice and seem intent on making an impression and battling for one of those up-in-the-air spots.” Other players on the roster include senior Sam Sinclair, junior Rachel Mulrenin, sophomores Jenny Moore, Allie Martin, and Devan Tsinzo, along with freshman Sophie Fitzpatrick. “We have a lot of underclassmen this year, and last season we had strong leaders as our captains. I’m hoping that this year’s captains can get control and show the younger kids what it takes to win another title,” said Stoddard.

(the roof waves were his idea) and was the museums first director until his death in 1974. The Art Complex Museum’s main gallery is named after him. Today the museum has about 6,000 pieces, with a focus on American paintings, American and European prints, and Asian art, and is well-known for their collection of Shaker art. Shakers are an American religious community related to the Quakers, and they are known for their furniture which is plain, durable and functional. “Their motto was function first, but their work was really beautiful too,” said Doherty. Carl Weyerhaeuser was more than just a collector. When he became interested in Japanese art, he didn’t just buy pieces, he traveled to Japan, met the artists and experienced the culture. “He didn’t just collect the items, but sat down and

had tea,” said Charles Weyerhaeuser. “He really enjoyed talking with the artists.” In fact, on one of his trips to Japan Weyerhaeuser brought back one of the museum’s most distinctive features: the Japanese tea hut. The hut is protected inside a garage during the winter but in the summer months, tea ceremonies are held monthly, on Sunday afternoons. Residents are invited to come participate in the ritualistic Japanese tea ceremony. “It’s about hospitality and being gentle and nice to people,” said Craig Bloodgood, the museum’s contemporary curator. Bloodgood, who has worked with the museum in different capacities for 10 years, helps set up the exhibits, which change about every three months, and works with artists. He’s also something of an artist-in-resident himself, working with found objects in a studio in one of the museum’s outbuildings. (Readers

may have seen his Christmas tree, made out of discarded toys from the Duxbury transfer station, at the library in recent months.) The Art Complex Museum is about more than art. In addition to the tea ceremony being open to the public, third grade students from the Chandler school are invited to learn about the tea ceremony. Classes are held at the Judah Alden house, and the museum also works with the Crossroads for Kids program at Camp Wing. They also work in conjunction with the Duxbury Art Association, hosting their annual gallery showing. Most of the ACM’s programs are free or low cost. Weyerhaeuser said that he hopes that visitors to the museum get “a little flavor of what a museum is about.” “It feels good to see that the place is being used and enjoyed,” he said. “My parents’ dream is still here after 38 years.”

Why this ad for a real estate brokerage doesn’t show pictures of homes….
And other marketing revelations from the fastest growing real estate brokerage on the South Shore.
As a means of bringing clarity to how The Sobran Group will work for you, it’s best to start with what we’ve achieved* for others seller in this challenging market. The Sobran Group is home to the highest selling agent in Duxbury for 2008. As a matter of fact, 50% higher in dollar sales than the next best selling agent! The Sobran Group is home to the #2 selling agent for our entire market, which is Hingham to Duxbury. The fact that the highest selling agent for Duxbury works out of an office in Hingham should show you the importance of cross marketing and push marketing, two processes we’ve leveraged to achieve these results. In January of 2009,The Sobran Group brought in a buyer for a million dollar plus home in Duxbury that was not even on the market! That seller paid absolutely no commission and sold their home immediately. The Sobran Group offers pre-market analysis and recommendations which result in our listings selling closer to original list price than any other agency on the South Shore. Web appeal is the new curb appeal. Which is why all our sellers are offered complimentary professional photography and high definition narrated video tours. (We are the only company in all of Massachusetts that provides this for all of their listings.) And we leverage these videos everywhere from MLS to Realtor.com to Boston.com to Trulia, Zillow and YouTube. (Do a search for “Duxbury real estate” on YouTube and see the results.) Does this marketing work? The facts speak for themselves. The Sobran Group is not your typical real estate agency. We are a marketing firm that sells real estate. That makes us fundamentally different from our competition.

“Different Approach. Superior Results.” More than a slogan, a proven maxim for delivering solutions and success to our clients. Visit sobrangroup.com to view our listings and see more results, or call us at 749-3311 and learn what we can do for you.
