Historic district back on the table
By Colleen Moore Clipper intern
Preserve & protect
The newly formed Historical District Study Committee is working to determine if Duxbury will soon have a historic district of its own. The study group is composed of seven members with a diverse professional background, including realtors, architects, and a member of the Duxbury Historical Commission. The group was formed in May to determine if there is a need for a historic district in town, and where that district would be. The two main goals for the group right now is to research potential areas in town for a district and to also educate town residents

Ms. Comer is the sister of CWB founder Dr. George Whitelaw. • Seventh graders Meg Falcone and Eoin Robinson, as well as sixth-grader Sarah Holbrook, were listed as honor students by the school department when in fact they made high honors in the third quarter of the DMS honor roll posted last week. Missing from the list were Robert Kosharek, eighth grade high honors and Stephanie Sotir, eighth grade honors. • In last week’s photo spread of Elements Montessori, the headline incorrectly described the event as a visit from the Duxbury Fire Department.

Buddy ball ends season right
Bambino Buddy Ball wrapped up last weekend with a full schedule of games, awards, and the Brockton Rox. The league celebrated their season with one final game followed by an awards ceremony and pizza donated by Benchwarmers. On Sunday, members of the league were invited to the Brockton Rox game. The Rox are a member of the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball and play at Campanelli Stadium. Tickets were donated by Duxbury Youth Baseball for the players, and The Arc of Greater Plymouth donated the remainder of the tickets for coaches and buddies. The league was founded four years ago, in partnership with The Arc. Coaches and volunteers work with children who have many different disabilities to teach them to play baseball. The Arc works with families and caregivers of those with disabilities to provide information and support to those in need. The Arc helps to provide assisted living or jobs, as well as recreational opportunities, such as Buddy Ball. The Arc helped Duxbury Youth Baseball involve kids from surrounding towns to take part in Buddy Ball. This allowed the league to have enough members for two teams, said Mike Showstead, the Buddy Ball Director. The Arc “helps out where they need to help out,” Malissa Kenney, the Director of Family Support at The Arc, said. The Arc helps get enough participants, including buddies, and also takes care of registration. There are two teams in the league, both with several buddy volunteers on them. Each member of the team gets an at bat, with the final hitter hitting a home run, allowing every player to run the bases. “It’s a very simple version [of baseball],” Showstead said.

The buddies work with the kids on the field to teach them how to catch pop-flies and ground balls, as well as keeping everything fun. The buddies also allow the parents to enjoy the game.
The dirt line (sometimes called a Scum Line) is a result of dirt, pollen, body lotions, tanning lotions, etc. It is always best to use a heavy-duty, non-abrasive cleaner that is compatible with the pool surface. A good quality surface cleaner will give you amazing results.

While some parents participate, others choose to relax and watch their kids play baseball. “We have many different levels of disabilities [on the teams],” Showstead said. “But they all get so excited to play.” The Arc serves 10 towns on the South Shore and over 430 families. Duxbury is centrally located, allowing a lot of people to participate, Kenney said. “We’re lucky to have this connection [with Duxbury Youth Baseball and sponsor Padula Auto],” Kenney said. Many kids play until they age out of the program, and from there they often volunteer to continue helping out on the field. The teams have been wearing blue and white Red Sox jerseys this year, donated by Padula Auto. The teams have played every Saturday since May 2. “I did it to give back to youth baseball, but I seem to be getting more out of it than the kids,” Showstead added.

Keep an eye out for Green Herons
uly is a pretty quiet month for backyard birds. Most are busy raising a new batch of offspring. All that passionate singing and strutting around in new feathers is pretty much over. Only the American Goldfinches are still in perfect plumage. They are the last of our common songbirds to nest. But although the little woodland guys are pretty hard to find now, out on our marshes and beaches you can come up with a treasure trove of attractive birds. The herons and egrets that inhabit our shorelines and wetlands are among the most beautiful and easily spotted of our summer visitors. Regular wading birds to Duxbury include Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, American Bittern, those spooky night herons, the occasional Tricolored Heron and, of course, the Green Heron. The first time I saw a Green Heron I repeatedly paged through my bird book looking for something that resembled this squat brown bird sitting in the cattails at the Wellfleet Sanctuary on Cape Cod. I was new to all this birding stuff and had to start at the beginning. I couldn’t find anything that looked like this bird. It was moving in slow motion through the reeds picking up one foot and placing it on the ground before moving another muscle in its body. I was fascinated and frustrated at the same time. Eventually a smart person came along and gave me its name: Green-backed Heron (since changed to Green Heron). Of course two minutes later the bird stood straight up and extended its heron-like neck. As it moved into the sunlight I saw its glossy, greenish-black head and back. Green Herons are rather solitary and nearly as spooky as their cousins, the night herons. They seldom venture out into the light, preferring the dark corners of the marshes. After an elaborate courtship display they mate and build nests in trees (sometimes on the ground) near or over water. Both parents incubate the 2–5 eggs. Green Herons are among those birds that use tools! After years of being told by the experts that humans are the only animals that use tools, that theory got thrown under the bus when studies of monkeys, chimpanzees, dolphins and several birds showed that many animals employ sticks, bits of food even man-made objects to feed themselves. Green Herons can be seen dropping food or insects into the water to attract fish. And, they never lie about the size of their catch. So on a hot summer’s day, go find a nice buggy marsh and sit very still. You might just find a weird green-backed chunky bird called the Green Heron!

South Shore. As luck would have it, only the weekend before Kasell, who is new to the area, jumped in her car to explore the area and wound up in Duxbury. When Kelso described the PAC, it seemed
like a natural fit. “We went to look at the space and thought it was quite beautiful,” Kasell said. Kelso said he’s always wanted to bring professional movies to Duxbury, but didn’t have the technological know-

how. “I’ve always wanted to show movies in the PAC, but I knew nothing about how to do it professionally,” he said. “It just seemed like this summer was the perfect time to try this.” The PAC rented theatrical equipment such as a projector, a movie quality screen and sound system, said Kelso. If the movies prove to be successful, Kelso said he may look into installing more permanent movie-viewing instruments. “There’s nothing on the South Shore that’s showing the independent non-mall plex type movies,” he said. “I think people are looking for stuff that’s nontraditional, an interesting mix of stuff.” Kasell said that the theater has several other partnerships with groups outside Boston, the idea being that demand for independent film exists, but community groups like the PAC may not always have the connections with distributor networks to bring the films to town. “We thought, we should start sharing that with organizations that don’t have that asset,” she said. The first movie of the partnership will be “Throw Down Your Heart,” a documentary that follows banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck to Africa to research the roots of his instrument. Fleck will be in Duxbury, and will answer questions from the audience as well as perform after both the 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. screenings. (see sidebar.) Other films include “Food, Inc.,” a look inside the nation’s food industry, and “Every Little Step,” a film about the long-running Broadway show “A Chorus Line.” Kasell hopes the films at the PAC will spread awareness of indie cinema to a new community. “That’s part of our mission as an art house, to promote the independent film community,” she said. “It’s really all part of this collective experience.” Kelso said he saw Coolidge Corner as the perfect partner for the PAC. “I’ve always loved their selection of films,” he said. “The only way to do this is to partner up with someone who really knows the business.” As less people travel into Boston for entertainment due to the economic downturn, bringing quality movies to the South Shore could be a smart business decision as well as an artistic one. “It’s a very economical ticket, and even in hard times, people find that they can afford to go to the movie theater,” Kasell said. Kasell said Coolidge Corner would be open to the partnership expanding, although she said she’s not sure what
Bela Fleck to visit
The first movie shown as part of the Duxbury Performing Arts Center’s collaboration with the Coolidge Corner Theatre will be “Throw Down Your Heart,” a documentary about banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck’s journey to Africa to research the roots of his instruments. The screenings will be on Saturday, July 11 at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. After both screenings, Fleck will answers questions from the audience and perform a song. He will also introduce the movies. He took time this week to answer some questions from the Clipper via email. Q: You’ve been playing the banjo for many years. What was the impetus for returning to Africa to seek out the instrument’s roots now? A: I have wanted to do this for many years. I just needed the right time and situation. Gradually everything fell into place, as the time opened up and it was now! Q: What do you feel the greatest lesson you learned in Africa was, for you as a musician, and you as a person? A: My world view opened up quite a lot, and I learned to have more faith that things will work out. There were a lot of leaps taken on this trip, some leaps of faith and some intuitive leaps. Sometimes I just knew what to do, and couldn’t explain why, and sometimes things fell in our lap that we weren’t expecting. Musically, I soaked up

as much as I could and I certainly hope this will influence all my future music making. It already has altered me. Q: As someone whose normal medium is performance, how do you feel your music, and the music you encountered throughout this process, comes across in film? A: I think film is more like live performance than making records, for instance. Film and live performance are very forgiving in that, if you can see it happening in front of you, everything makes sense. When you close your eyes and hear just the recording, without seeing it, you can suddenly hear that something may not be perfectly in tune or time. But the musicians were so good and the project itself so interesting, that it seems to work on record just as well in this instance. I just love getting to watch players play, and you can understand the musical choices people make when you watch their faces. Q: What do you hope people in Duxbury take away from the film and from your appearance here? A: I know they will fall in love with this music, it is very hard to resist. Also for those who may have followed me over the years and never heard me say anything, the question/answer part of the showing provides a great opportunity for interaction. I actually can talk! I also expect to sign CDs and hang out afterwards.
Banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck travels to Africa on a magical musical journey in the film “Throw Down your Heart,” screening on Saturday, July 11 at the Duxbury Performing Arts Center. Fleck will make a special appearance at the screening to introduce the film, perform a song, and answer questions from the audience.
that means yet. Kelso said he’d like to continue to show films during the summer and at other times of the year as well, although the PAC’s schedule gets considerably tighter during the school year. Above all, both the leaders of the PAC and the theater have the overriding goal of
bringing entertainment to the masses. “We are in the business of entertaining and informing,” Kasell said. “We’re hoping they’ll stand up and give a round of applause ... and they’ll be able to say what a fabulous end to a summer day.”

Registry warns of deed scam
The Plymouth County Register of Deeds is warning residents about a scam involving certified copies of deeds. A Washington D.C. Company, National Deed Service Incorporated, is offering consumers certified copies of deeds for a fee of $59.50. Register of Deeds John Buckley reports that the issue has come to his office’s attention at various times over the past two years. “We contacted local media outlets and placed an advisory on our Web site after we were presented with multiple requests for certified copies of deeds from this company, which is giving people the false impression that they have an imminent need for a certified copy of their deed and charging them $58.50 more than they would have to pay if they simply went to the registry themselves,” Buckley said in a press release. A copy of a deed, typically about 1-2 pages, can be obtained directly from the Plymouth County Registry of Deeds for a fee of $1 per page at either the Plymouth, rockland or Brockton office, Buckley said. The Registry also accepts requests by mail,

Browne and Forgit will describe the process of selecting historic photographs and shooting the present-day views.

The Duxbury Rural and Historical Society announces the annual opening of its two museums—the King Caesar House (1809) and the Captain Gershom Bradford House (1808). Trained docents will guide visitors through these remarkable 19th century houses that accurately reflect the days of Duxbury ship builders and sea captains. The King Caesar House at 120 King Caesar road is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 1-4 p.m. until the end of August, as well as weekends in September. The house was built in 1809 for ezra Weston II, known as “King Caesar” for his worldwide preeminence as a shipbuilder and merchant. Weston’s enterprise dominated Duxbury in the early 19th century with a large portion of the population employed in the Weston shipyards, farms, wharves, mill, ropewalk, or aboard Weston’s fishing schooners and merchant fleet. The house is noted for its rare French scenic wallpapers, portraits of sea captains, and 19th century furnishings. The Potter Gallery at the King Caesar House features rotating exhibits. This summer’s exhibits are “Childhood” and “Needlework and the Sea.” Admission

to the King Caesar House is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors/ students. The Gershom Bradford House at 931 Tremont Street belonged to four generations of Bradfords before the last generation gave it to the Society in 1968. Captain Gershom Bradford (1774-1844), who built the house, commanded more than 10 merchant vessels before retiring in 1826 to lead an active life ashore. The Bradford family, out of respect for the Captain, changed almost nothing in the house. It was donated to the Society with
original furnishings, décor and personal objects. A fascinating time capsule, the house allows the visitor to observe the home of a successful Duxbury mariner much as he left it in 1844. The regular hours of the Gershom Bradford House are Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. through the end of August. Admission to the Bradford House is $3 for adults and $1 for seniors/students. Tours are also available by appointment. For more information, visit the Society’s Web site at www.duxburyhistory. org or call 781-934-6106.

about what a historic district is and what the limitations inside would be. In regards to where to put the historic district, the group is still looking at the town as a whole, James Hartford, a construction professional and president of the study group said. “The group is in the very early stages of research and planning to determine if there is an area in town that bears merit to pursue as a district,” Hartford said. The Massachusetts Historical Commission has detailed guidelines for proposing an area, Georgia Pye, a realtor and member of the committee said. “We’re starting from ground zero,” she said. “It won’t be people coming to tell you not to paint your house pink. It’s more to try and make sure that there’s some type of review process before something big is changed,” Pye said. If a historic district is established, a separate historical district commission will be formed, and residents of the district will have to adhere to district bylaws, she said. For example, if a homeowner wants to make an addition to their home, they must submit an application to a historical district committee for approval prior to building. The committee will then hold a public hearing to determine if the changes are appropriate or not. If the application is approved, the owner will receive a certificate allowing it to begin construction. If the application is denied, the homeowner will be given suggestions on how to get the project approved. If a historic district is ap-

Many parade organizers as well as participants pointed to The Air Force Band from Hanscom Air Force Base as a highlight of this year’s parade.

success despite a few bursts of rain and rising tides, and the weather for the parade on Saturday was perfect July sunshine. “I think everybody was happy to see the sun,” Kearney said. Large crowds gathered at the parade’s beginning and end, at Hall’s Corner and the high school, as well as all along the route. Several parade organizers said they believed the cancellation of parades in surrounding communities may have brought even more people to Duxbury. “The parade went really well this year. The weather held out, we had tons of bands and floats,” said parade cochairman Rich Potash. From other communities came not only spectators, but participants in the parade. The Plymouth High School Band marched, and parade organizers were particularly proud that the Air Force Marching Band from Hanscom Air Force Base marched, which several people called a highlight of the parade. “The parade was absolutely great,” said head judge Dave Johnson. Despite the large number of floats and marching groups, the parade seemed to flow smoothly from its origin at the Hall’s Corner rotary. Kearney said the last float headed down Washington Street at 2:50 p.m., excellent timing for such a large parade. Participants in the parade were happy to be taking part in a long-running Duxbury tradition. The Mutkoski family started making the parade an Independence Day tradition five years ago. Their red-whiteand-blue themed float took home first prize in the minifloat category. “It’s a nice family event, a way to celebrate patriotism,” said John Mutkoski. “It was long and hot but a lot of fun,” said Alexa Nielson, a first-time parade walker with Duxbury’s 4-H group.

Scenes from the 4th of July parade
The Bookmarks, a high school group that meets at the library, created a float that celebrated the country’s literary heritage. The side of the float reads: “Today’s banned book is tomorrow’s classic!”
The Duxbury 4H float featured livestock including sheep and cows. Emilie Peavey and “Tabasco” received an enthusiastic response from the crowd.
The Friends of the Percy Walker Pool created a float that highlighted the country’s Olympic swimming heroes. On the back of the float hung a photo of Michael Phelps with the words, “See you in 2012.” A Civil War reenactment group fired a volley of blanks, much to the delight of the crowd. As the theme was “Our American Heritage,” several historical marching groups participated in the parade.
Mariah MacFarlane and Rita Thompson belted out rock n’ roll tunes from a revolving stage on the DHS Drama Club’s float.
Parade Grand Marshals Gil and Roberta MacNab and Mary Barclay wave to the crowd as the parade begins near Hall’s Corner.

itnessing the 4th of July parade on Saturday made one proud to be American –– and from Duxbury. It seemed that the Massachusetts Monsoon ended just in time for the town’s Independence Day weekend-long celebration. Other than a few sunshowers at the beach party Friday night, the weekend’s weather was perfect. All in all, the parade was a resounding success, a highlight of the Duxbury summer if not the entire year, and the best 4th of July celebration on the South Shore. And it wouldn’t be possible without a small but extremely dedicated group of people on the 4th of July Committee. Planning the 4th of July festivities is a year-round job for these folks. On the holiday weekend, you see them in distinctive red shirts, patrolling the beach party or rollerblading alongside the parade to keep candy-seeking kids out from under the wheels of the floats. You see them on the judges stand or directing parade traffic out of Hall’s Corner. But what you don’t see are the endless meetings, the late nights spent working out event logistics. So thanks to Maggie Kearney, Rich Potash, Connie Dennis, Kathy Gaenicke, Jamie MacNab, Janet Ritch, Bob Dente, Dave Robinson, Linda Robinson, Terry Reiber, Joan Edgar, Nancy Reed, Jeff Goldman, Amy Hill, Brian Hill, Barbara Muncey, Walter Osborne, Sue Lawrence, Don Reed, and anyone else who helped make the parade a reality. Thanks also to the police officers working along the parade route and the beach, the DPW workers who set up and clean up the various events, and to all who participated. It was truly a day to be proud to be from Duxbury. And just to toot our own horn a bit, The Clipper was honored to be the recipient of this year’s Margery Parcher Cup. Just like newspapers have been an essential part of this country’s heritage, we at the Clipper feel deeply proud to have been a part of Duxbury’s heritage for over 50 years. The reception our float got during the parade was overwhelming and humbling. We are truly blessed to be a part of this town, and we hope to continue faithfully serving the citizens of Duxbury for many years to come. –– J. Graeber

Kind officer helped find daughter –––––––––––
his past Friday evening, my family and I were enjoying a wonderful pre-bonfire dinner party at Blakeman’s, hosted by several generous Duxbury families. The evening was fabulous, until both my husband and I realized that our 7-yearold daughter was missing. Within minutes many of the guests mobilized to look for her as my concern quickly turned to panic. As the search began, I was fortunate to run in to Officer Tommy Johnson, who acted quickly. His professionalism and concern were very comforting in a situation that is every parent’s worst nightmare. Immediately, he had a search underway. Not having my cell phone with me, he offered his own phone, as I needed to keep in touch with my husband as he too was frantically trying to find our daughter in the opposite direction. Not long after, a police officer found our daughter (who decided she wanted a front row seat for the bonfire, and so walked along the beach, and then the dirt road, to the other end of the beach, as she told me she did not want to disturb the piping plovers.) Offi-
cer Johnson allowed us to drive back to the parking lot, and we were reunited. I want to publicly thank Officer Johnson for his kindness. His quick response provided much needed comfort and reassurance. We are also very grateful for the kindness and caring of the Duxbury Police Department, friends, and strangers who joined in the search. It is times like this that make us feel so very blessed to live in a community like Duxbury. Aisling and Michael Eisner Congress Street
Questioning student sleep survey ––––––––––
Start Time Committee consisting of nine parents and seven administrators, with the Superintendent as chair, has been formed to implement and assess the new start time change. This committee reviewed a parent online survey, and parents were informed that the aggregate data results will be used by this committee. A student survey, not reviewed or approved by the committee, was to be completed by children in grades 2-5 in class during the week of June 8. Questions included how often the child drinks coffee/tea/ Pepsi/Coke/Mountain Dew, and whether a cell phone or computer or TV is in the child’s room. In addition, the child’s name was requested on the survey. I wondered why this type of information was being solicited from our children and questioned the accuracy of answers from 7-11 year olds. To find out more about this survey and assessment process I attended the June 15 Start Time Committee meeting. I learned that some committee members

had serious issues with the student survey and that the committee (and parents) are not allowed to see the raw data from either survey. It was the sleep researchers, not the committee, who wanted this information from the children. These are the same people who have advocated for a later start time for high school students nationally (see Amy Wolfson’s picture on our school Web site). The committee was informed that these researchers are the ones who will be interpreting the data and reporting their results in November – after four months of analysis, according to the project timeline. And they are doing all this “for free.” I find this concerning, and I especially question why the raw data is not being openly shared with the Start Time Committee and parents. If the new time change doesn’t work out so well, will the data be used to try and show that the children are negatively impacted not by the earlier start time, but due to the parents allowing too much TV watching and Pepsi drinking? I’m also concerned that
this could be another case of a process being manipulated and shrouded in secrecy to reach a pre-determined outcome. Hopefully the majority school committee will not condone this happening yet again, and the assessment process will drastically change course after tonight’s School Committee meeting (the next Start Time Committee meeting is July 9). Instead of funneling sensitive family information through sleep researchers who are predisposed to want this change to appear successful, and relying on them to tell us how this change is working for us, we could easily assess this start time change ourselves: next fall, simply survey the parents and the older students to ask if this schedule change has a positive or negative effect on the health, sleep, safety, and well being of each student and report all results. Let’s make this process straightforward and transparent. Then we can all get some sleep. Debbie Leppanen Harmony Hill Road

able through our unpredictable winters. Anyone with a sunny spot can grow this, and the result is far better than garlic bulbs from a supermarket. For next summer’s crop you would plant cloves this November around Thanksgiving. Use a good source for planting stock, such as FilareeFarm, WeGrowGarlic, and the Garlic Seed Foundation. However, don’t try to grow garlic from the supermarket – it’s the wrong variety for our locale, and treated chemically to prevent sprouting. So instead, seek out some hardneck stock from a commercial supplier. A couple of pounds will produce about 50 plants. Enough? Thomas Andrews Tremont Street

away – she never at any point slowed down at all – and continued on her way. A potentially very bad accident was luckily avoided. If she wasn’t texting, it must have been something else that was really interesting, and distracting. This morning I witnessed another example. Again heading toward route 3 on 14 a black SUV was travelling at a suspiciously slow speed. When the car stopped at the traffic circle and waited, even though there was no other car in the circle, I was fairly sure of the problem. The car then slowly merged unto route 3, and as I passed it, my suspicions were confirmed, as the man at the wheel busily texted, looking straight down at his beloved texting device. In my rear view mirror I watched his car zig zag over into the breakdown lane and then zig zag back into his own lane, completely oblivious to the fact that there was any one else on the road. Mindless cell phone gossiping while driving is bad enough, it is rampant and annoying, but text messaging is dangerous, smacks of neurotic behavior, and should be made a crime before more people are killed or seriously injured. Please let’s use our heads for something other than baseball cap racks – and stop the lunacy. Dick Johnson Goose Point Lane
Stop the texting madness ––––––––––––––––

Twice in the last couple of weeks I have witnessed people drive erratically, their minds far from their driving. About 2 weeks ago I sat in a line of 12-15 cars behind a school bus heading west on Route 14. I watched a grey SUV heading east cross the double yellow line and head straight toward several of the cars right in front of me. It was a close enough call that I started to try and drive to the right of the car in front of me as she headed toward us. At the last second she [a young woman] looked up and turned
Join the Friends of Tarkiln ––––––––––––––––
he Friends of Tarkiln are recruiting! Come join us on July 8th at Duxbury Town Hall. On June 17, the Friends met with the town’s Tarkiln Committee at the Senior Center to join forces. The Friends are energized and are laying plans to make good on the Tarkiln Committee’s proposal to reopen the Tarkiln Community Center. In March, Duxbury Town Meeting appropriated funds to partially restore the historic community center and twin schoolhouse on Summer Street. The Community Preservation Commission funds became available on July 1 for the partial restoration. The Tarkiln Committee is working with the Town to ensure that construction work on Tarkiln begins as soon as possible and is completed this year. The Friends of Tarkiln are working to make the rest of the story happen. At the June 17 meeting, the Friends unanimously elected Susanna Sheehan as the new Chairman of the Friends of Tarkiln. A past chairman of the Duxbury Historical Commission, Mrs. Sheehan has been
active on the Tarkiln Study Committee and has played a key role in advocating for Tarkiln, stressing its importance to the town not only as a unique historic landmark but also as a building that has been a tremendous asset to the town as a school and community center for nearly 140 years. Jack Williams, a longtime trustee and guardian of the Tarkiln Community Center for 50 years, was elected as the Friends of Tarkiln Historian. His half-century of commitment to Tarkiln has been invaluable to the town. In other news, the Friends held a volunteer work-day at Tarkiln on June 27 to prepare the site for the Farmer’s and Artisan’s Market on July 1 and to continue painting the exterior. Much progress was made. The Friends plan to hold additional volunteer work days through the summer and fall. At this time, we look forward to the reopening of Tarkiln before winter sets in. We will work with the community to ensure that Tarkiln reaches its full potential in service to the needs of Duxbury residents. The Tarkiln Twin Schoolhouses
are the centerpiece of the entire complex that includes historical ball fields and tennis courts. The Duxbury Farmers and Artisans’ Market is only the beginning of Tarkiln’s reintegration into the fabric of life in Duxbury. The Friends of Tarkiln are inviting new members, and welcome anyone interested in helping steer Tarkiln into the future to join us and participate. The next meeting will be held on July 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Duxbury Town Hall, downstairs in the kitchen meeting room. We are eager to share the mission and vision for the Friends with you, and to brainstorm about special events, fund-raising, and programs for Tarkiln when it re-opens. All are welcome to come and help us realize the goal of seeing Tarkiln once again open its doors to the people of Duxbury. The Friends of Tarkiln Susanna Sheehan, Chairwoman Ann Prince, Secretary Friends of Tarkiln R. T. Carpenter, Chairman Tarkiln Committee
Remembering helmets –––––– Thanks –––––
ear Editor and Parents of Duxbury: As we head into the summer season, I implore you to use any means necessary to make your kids wear bike helmets while biking, scootering, skateboarding, or in-line skating. Driving through town this past week, I have been stunned to see so many kids not wear-
ing helmets. A properly fitted and fastened helmet is the simplest, most cost-effective way to prevent wheel-related traumatic brain injury and can reduce the risk by as much as 88 percent. Please, let’s not wait for a tragic accident to prompt you and your kids, just do it. Selden Tearse Bay Road

he June 15 meeting of the Board of Selectmen has certainly raised interest, concern and questions about local government in our town. It is refreshing to read the different views of citizens and former elected officials. My thanks to the Clipper for encouraging people to speak out and printing their comments. However, it was the June 10 issue of the Clipper that told us about the town manager’s letter, dated June 4, informing the police chief his contract would not be extended when it expires in November. The article also reported the town manager’s statement that he would be appointing a new police chief in November. For the town manager to appoint a new police chief requires the removal of the current police chief. Now the fight is on. We are picking sides. The town is divided and the future is unclear. Perhaps a look at past actions might help in understanding our current government. In 1977 a group of citizens formed the Duxbury Taxpayers Association because we were concerned about the growing size of the town budget and questioning our management capability of the future. One of our projects was a study of other towns and how they managed their resources and served their residents. In 1986, as a result of our study, we submitted an article in the warrant of the 1986 annual Town Meeting asking voters to “authorize and approve the filing of a petition to the General Court an Act establishing a selectman-town manager form of government for the Town of Duxbury” (see 1986 town report). An amendment was offered, and accepted, “that the subject matter of Article 64 be referred to a committee of seven voters, appointed by the moderator, and that said committee be required to report back to the Board of Selectmen within six months of appointment, but no later than Dec. 1, 1986 and any recommendations of said committee, if any, be placed on the warrant of the 1987 Annual Town Meeting. The committee reviewed the proposal of the Duxbury Taxpayers Association, made revisions, deleted sections, added new sections and wrote a new proposal to be considered by the 1987 annual Town Meeting. The proposal was presented as Article 9 of the annual Town Meeting. Discussion and debate was conducted at the Saturday, March 14 session and the Monday, March 16 session. A total of 13 amendments were offered of which eight were approved and five failed. At 9:30 p.m. on Monday, March 16, 1987 Article 9, as amended, was adopted by a vote of Yes, 295, No, 24. The action of Town Meeting was forwarded to the General Court and Chapter 353 of the Acts of 1987 was enacted as an Act Providing for a Town Manager in the Town of Duxbury signed by the Governor Aug. 11, 1987. One of the important sections governing the power of the Town Manager to appoint and remove specific employees is Section 3 C (4) as follows: “Section 3 C (4) All appointments and removals by the town manager shall be subject to ratification by the board of selectmen which shall act upon each appointment and removal within fifteen days following notification thereof. Failure of the board to act within the fifteen day period shall constitute assent.” Chapter 353 of the Acts of 1987 “An Act Providing for a Town Manager in the Town of Duxbury” Section 1 states “Upon the effective date of this act, the town of Duxbury shall be governed by the provisions of this act ...” Both the town manager or the Board of Selectmen are required to follow the process established by Section 3 C (4) of the Chapter 353 of the Acts of 1987. Neither the town manager or the Board of Selectmen have the authority to do otherwise. Both owe the taxpayers of Duxbury a full and complete accounting of compliance with the provisions of Sec 3 C (4) over the past years. Their explanation should not be limited to only the police chief appointment but a full accounting of all appointments. The writer is a Washington Street resident.

Go Big ready for business
Youth rally around new skate and surf shop
With bright colors, open doors, and a big personality, Go Big Boarding Co. is sure to make a mark in the skating and surfing culture of Duxbury. The store, which opened June 13, was founded by Shannon Thompson. “I wanted to bring a little California here,” Thompson said of the store. She grew up in Oregon, and spent time in California before moving to Duxbury, where she now lives with her two kids. “I saw a need for the store,” she said. Thompson added that she saw no stores in town that focus solely on board sports, such as skim boarding, kite boarding, skateboarding, and snowboarding. Go Big Boarding Co. is located on the way to the beach, and allows kids to come in and even talk to others who might have used the same product. The store sells everything from rash-guards to sun dresses to sandals and long-boards. There are clothes for young adults and teenagers, but also has some items for children as well. The store also sells some drinks and snacks to pick up on the way to the beach. The main inspiration for the store has been Thompson’s kids, Austin, 15, and McKenzie, 14. Both attend Duxbury High School and are interested in the board sports that Go Big Boarding Co. supports. Thompson wanted to create an environment for kids to have fun and hang out, but to also be involved in the business and maybe even learn something in the process. Opening a new store isn’t always easy, and the kids involved are seeing first hand what it’s like to start a business and the hard work involved, Thompson said.

ble moments came before the store even opened. One afternoon while prepping the store, Thompson recalls about 30 teens showing up after school, all ready to help her. “Kids went to town, painting and cleaning,” Thompson said. “I wouldn’t have been able to open on time without them.” The inside of the store is full of bright colors which welcome customers and create a summery-beach feeling throughout the store. Customers will find hand painted graffiti done by Oliver Arana and Boomer Fagan. The two worked with Thompson to paint murals on some of the inside walls of the store. The bathroom, which doubles as a dressing room, has an ocean theme, complete with fish on the floor. Thompson, along with her children and friends, spent weeks going through catalogs from different brands trying to figure out which products to order. “I wanted to take the kids’ input for what to get, because they’re the ones buying the clothes,” Thompson said. Thompson is supporting local kids in more ways than one. The store will be selling EJ Thomas skateboards and will soon have clothing products by Mike Moore, both of whom are Duxbury High School graduates. “I wanted to bring in local talent and support Duxbury,”
Thompson said. While the store currently focuses on skateboarding, snowboarding, skim-boarding, and kite boarding, it is looking to expand to include surfing and freestyle skiing in the future.

“We’re going to be everchanging and adding new things,” Thompson said. Along with different products, the store is going to be sponsoring different events throughout the summer. There have already been multiple skateboard rail jams, but in the future there are plans for an art challenge (in association with the Duxbury Student Union and Art Association), a skate camp, and a potential trip to Rye, NH to go to the famous Rye Airfield skate park. One of Thompson’s goals is to work more with the Duxbury Student Union. “Not enough kids use the student union. We’re going to work hand in hand to get others to use it,” Thompson said. Go Big Boarding Co. is looking forward to hosting different events with the student union throughout the summer and fall. “It’s been an unbelievably fun experience,” Thompson said. Go Big Boarding Co. will be open year round, providing local kids with not only the gear needed to take part in their favorite sports, but with a place to hang out and meet other kids involved in those sports. The store is open and ready for new customers and friends.

ast weekend the Duxbury Bay Maritime School hosted the 2009 Duxbury Bay Junior 420 Regatta—the first major sailing event to be staged from DBMS’s spectacular new waterfront facility. This two day regatta on Duxbury Bay included 23 boats from yacht clubs and schools all throughout Massachusetts. Despite less than perfect weather all races were sailed and the event was deemed a success by all involved. The first day consisted of light winds from the northeast and heavy fog covering the race course. Sunday was less foggy and moderately windy, also from the northeast. Sean Golden and Doyle Calhoun of DBMS won the regatta with 8 points, followed by Katy Baker and Riley Calhoun of Cohasset. Allison Shane and Stephen Pellegrini of DBMS rounded out the top three. Mike Healy did a great job leading the P.R.O. while parent volunteers and the DBMS sailing staff also helped run this regatta and made it a great event to showcase the new campus. Other Duxbury sailors in the top ten were Aidan DiPrima and Liz Runci who placed sixth and Austin Schofield and Ian Willie who placed seventh. Thanks to the huge deck and ample boat staging area, DBMS’s ACCESSAIL program for disabled sailors was also in full swing for the day on Saturday.

the Paul and Mariclaire Glova’s minifarm on Tremont Street, and there’s another batch over at the O’Neill Farm on Winter Street and Autumn Avenue.
You may have bought some 4-H eggs at the Duxbury Farmer’s Market’s grand opening. I ran into Mariclaire at the market – but first, a bit of due diligence and disclosure. I volunteer at the fair, and this year I’m more involved than ever in 4-H and the Poultry House. I’ve been attending the monthly meetings at the fairgrounds, sucking up the pizza somebody brings, and adding very little to raise the level of discourse. Nothing new, but now I do it as a committee member, not as a journalist.

Fair will have a Duxbury flavor
continued from page one
So I ran into Mariclaire at the Farmers Market, chatted a little about the 4-H booth and the eggs they were selling. The eggs are from pastured hens. Mariclaire helped me sort out some of the differences in how eggs and hens are designated (some of this I knew already). “Cage-free” can mean very little. Hens may be hoarded in huge barns, de-beaked so they don’t peck each other to death, never see the light of the sun or restful darkness at night and still be called “cage-free.” It’s a step down, probably, from being “Born Free” and hiding the phase “From Caged Hens” in fine print on the side of the package. At the Glova Farm, 4-Hers are striving for something between “free-range” and “pastured.” Both designations require enough space and time for hens to forage, sun-bathe, graze and catch bugs without stripping the area clean from all its grass. “You can tell our hens get plenty of sun,” Mariclaire explained. “White feathers turn yellow in the sun. If you see a brilliant white hen, you know she never goes outside.” Jeff Chandler inherits a few hens now and then, but his farm between Lincoln and Franklin Streets raises beef. He’s tied in with Carl O’Neill’s dairy farm. Cows need to be bred to produce milk. Their calves get plenty, and the rest goes into bottles for a year or so. The heifers (females) might stay on to become dairy cows, but the bullocks need another plan, something like the extra roosters in a poultry operation. In a full-sized farm, all of these activities take place in one comprehensive operation. Giant roasters are often capons – castrated roosters that grow large and tender. Beef is often from steers – bullocks who find a fate similar to capons. It’s enough to make some folks into vegetarians, but for everyone a deeper look into farm life raises awareness. Indeed, there may be nothing more callous than scarfing down eggs and burgers without the slightest awareness of the lives and deaths of the animals involved. On a commercial farm, for example, hens may receive the best life possible as long as they lay eggs, but they are not kept on afterwards as pets. They finish their existence as soup. The closer people are to such cycles, the more likely they are to demand a healthy, humane life and death for the animals involved. You and your family can reconnect your roots to the past and present by making the fair a hands-on experience. This year’s exhibitors handbook is available online at www. marshfieldfair.org. Mind the entry dates; some are days before the Fair opens. You’ll need to plan. Others are then and there, like the Cow Flap Toss. Cow Flaps courtesy of Jeff Chandler, former Sea World visitor, and his steers.

Duxbury sailors take home yacht prize
ave Caso and his crew aboard his Cherubini 44, Silhouette, have again won their class in the grueling Marion Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race contested between June 19 and June 25. This was the 17th running of this classic, biennial ocean race sponsored jointly by the Beverly Yacht Club (of Marion, Massachusetts), the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club, and Blue Water Sailing. The 645 nautical mile race started just after noon on Friday, June 19, outside Marion’s Sippican Harbor amidst drizzle, fog, and some 12 to 15 knots of wind from the southwest. Because of weather and, presumably, the current economic crisis, the usual roaster of 75 to 80 boats in prior years was down to 50 boats competing in four classes, which divided boats by size and speed potential. Silhouette competed in Class D with 11 other boats.
By steve WoodWorth special to the clipper
In the 2007 race Caso and crew captured a variety of trophies, including Class winner and overall winner. The hope among all aboard, of course, was to repeat this admirable feat. Based upon weather predictions and projections as to gulf stream activity Caso and his navigator, Sam Lawson chose not to sail in a straight line directly to Bermuda but, rather, to go west of this “rumb line” in an effort to capitalize upon favorable currents. What Caso, and the rest of the fleet, saw on this westerly route is what some have described as a “mini perfect storm” as two low pressure systems converged to produce winds in excess of 40 knots (over 50 m.p.h.) and towering seas, sometimes reaching 25 feet in height. So significant was this weather system that only three of the 12 boats in Silhouette’s class actually finished the race. Overall, 19 of the boats that were originally scheduled to start either withdrew before the start or threw in the towel at some point dur-

ing the race. Ripped sails, broken halyards, and assorted hull damage was the order of the day. Perhaps the most significant damage was to a sailboat racing in A Fleet when the impact of a large wave caused the vessel’s fuel tank to rupture, filling the living quarters with some 50 gallons of diesel fuel and shorting out numerous onboard electronic components. In a post race moment, the skipper of a boat competing in Class B was seen to breakdown in uncontrollable sobs of relief simply to be ashore. With a combination of seamanship and tenacity Silhouette’s crew was able to get the boat through, mostly unscathed, and cross the finish line off Saint David’s Lighthouse in Bermuda Thursday morning, June 25. Once the calculations were done to ap-
ply the various boats’ handicaps Silhouette “corrected out” to first place in its class. In addition to Sam Lawson, Caso’s crew also included Sam’s daughter Eleanor, who at 23 has already completed 7 Bermuda races. Ned Lawson, Terry Watson, and Keith Pratt rounded out the Silhouette crew. Shawn Dahlen, and crew aboard the Beneteau 423, Attitude, finished sixth in class shortly after 5 p.m. on Thursday. Dahlen won the Beneteau Award for the best finish by a Beneteau brand boat. Six of the 13 boats in Class C were unable to endure the rigors of the weather system and retired from the race. Crewmember Keith Fotta commented “this isn’t sailboat racing – it’s surviving in the right direction.” Skipper Dahlen and his
navigator, Steve Woodworth, and weather specialist Mark Lindquist all concurred that the westerly route to the island made the most sense as it would facilitate the best entrance to and exit from the Gulf Stream. The weather encountered on this route, however, had foredeck crew Andre Martecchini and Steve Trehu frequently scrambling to the front of the boat and, on one occasion up the mast to repair broken lines and to repeatedly change sails. The weather conditions and the length of the race gave rise to many an on- board vow “this is my last race.” Ashore and two or three Dark ‘n Stormies later, however, plans were already being hatched for the next Bermuda race.
