Contract of championship lacrosse coach not renewed
When the Dragons go for their seventh straight boys lacrosse championship next spring, head coach Chris Sweet may not be pacing the sidelines. School Committee members George Cipolletti and John Heinstadt confirmed Monday that school Superintendent Sue Skeiber informed the board that Sweet’s contract would not be renewed for next year. Sweet just completed his fourteenth year with the lacrosse program, which has won seven of the last eight Division I state championships.

Neither school committee member said they knew any information regarding the reason for Sweet’s dismissal. Skeiber and Assistant Superintendant Ed Walsh were both on vacation and could not be reached for comment. The news came as a surprise to Sweet, who said he Chris Sweet had his annual coaching evaluation with athletic director Thom Holdgate and principal Andrew Stephens without any indication his tenure was up.

Hansen returns to ACM Festival Yoga at the ACM
One of California’s most dynamic young pianists will return to The Art Complex Museum on Sunday, Aug. 2, to perform the music of some of the best-loved composers. Hansen grew up in Duxbury and began teaching himself piano at the age of four. His association with the museum began when, as a senior at Duxbury High School, he gave the first of many recitals at the museum. He continued his studies at the New England Conservatory and received a Bachelor of Music degree followed by a Master of Music from the University of Michigan. His principal teachers were Theordore Lettvin and Thomas La Ratta. Hansen has performed to critical acclaim in both the United States and abroad. The program begins at 4 p.m. It is free and supported by the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Family Charitable Trusts, and by gifts from friends of the museum. artcomplex.org

An exhibit full of delight and motion has just opened at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury. In “On the Patio: Than Smith, Dancing Branches”, the sculptor has created dynamic artwork that interacts each piece with the other and also with the viewer. Smith was raised in Duxbury and now lives and works in a studio on his property in Kingston. Trained as an arborist in the management and maintenance of ornamental trees and shrubs, he began to see other possibilities in the hardwood limbs of the trees he was working with – the human figure as it moves in the various motions of life. His work has been shown in several exhibitions including the Duxbury Art Association’s Annual Winter Juried Show at the museum as well as the Paradise City Arts festival held both in Marlboro and Northampton.

Myles Standish monument closed to the public for summer
Residents and visitors alike will not be able to visit the Myles Standish Monument this summer, as it will be closed due to a lack of state funding, according to a representative from the Pilgrim Memorial State Park.

Although farming in Duxbury is less common than it used to be, we do still have a number of small farms in town. We also have many horse owners and riders who travel our roadways. I would like to take this opportunity to inform motorists about the laws governing the passing of horses and draft animals on roadways. Many people are unaware that Mass. law requires motor vehicle operators to stop vehicles when approaching horses or draft animals on a roadway, if the animal appears frightened or if the person(s) in control of the animal signals to do so. The law requires that you remain stopped until such animal(s) pass (when in opposite directions) and that you must use reasonable caution to pass such an animal (when in the same direction). These provisions are contained in the same statute that governs the passing of school busses (MGL Ch. 90 Sec. 14). A violation is subject to a $250 fine and more importantly, poses a serious safety risk to motorists, the animals, and their owners. –– Chief Mark M. DeLuca
Safety advisory: Stay clear of draft horses
Department of Conservation and Recreation, which controls parks and historical sites across Massachusetts. Town Hall had no knowledge of the monument being closed. The park supervisor, Glen Homes, could not be reached for comment. The monument is dedicated to one of Duxbury’s founders, Captain Standish. It took 26 years to build and was completed in 1898. At 116 ft., the top of the monument offers views of Duxbury Beach, and Plymouth harbor. When the monument is open, it is a 125step climb to the top.

Conduct policy adopted
Document outlines expectations for town workers
Duxbury selectmen have adopted a professional conduct policy for town employees. The one-page professional conduct document was crafted by Personnel Administrator Jeannie Horne and first presented to selectmen last month. The policy outlines the town’s expectations for the performance and behavior of its employees. These expectations include showing up for work, following instructions and town policies and being efficient and competent. The policy also states that employBy susanna sheehan, Clipper staff susanna@duxBuryClipper.Com

ees must act “honestly, conscientiously, and reasonably” and in the best interest of the town and its residents. Selectmen voted unanimously to adopt the professional conduct policy. Despite approving the document, Selectman Jon Witten said he felt the policy was “generic and obvious” and didn’t feel that it could be enforced. Horne disagreed saying, “That’s not my understanding. It is an enforceable document.” “This policy is what any reasonable person would expect their work place to be,” said Horne. “It sets the stage.” Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan called the document “a mission statement for what we are, for what we are
looking for, and for what we expect.” Horne said that this policy will eventually become part of an employee handbook and will be part of a packet for new employees. She said it will also be distributed to all town workers. The professional conduct policy states that employees must respect the privacy of individuals and not abuse confidential information. The policy applies to all paid, appointed town employees, except those under the School Committee’s supervision. Those employees in unions are subject to the policy’s provisions that are not specifically regulated by their union contracts.

With weeks of cold and wet weather, the mosquitos in the area are the only ones around who seem to have thrived in the dismal conditions. “There’s definitely an increase [of mosquitos] this year,” Anthony Texeira, superintendent of the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project said. “We’ve had 2,500 more requests to be sprayed than last year.” The project is responsible for monitoring and controlling the mosquitos in Plymouth County. The abundance of rain during the spring combined with cooler temperatures has made it easier than ever for mosquitos to multiply, Texeira said. Bats have often been looked at as a way of naturally maintaining the mosquito population in certain areas. However, the bat population of the Northeast has been suffering due to the development of White Nose Syndrome, a disease which has been killing thousands of bats in the past three years. Duxbury resident Jamie MacNab has been building bat houses to try to help the dwindling bat population. MacNab became interested in bats after he and his wife watched a news report on White Nose Syndrome. This disease could potentially wipe out 80 to 90 percent of the bat population in the next few years, McNab said. This disease has been found in bats from Vermont to West Virginia. According to Mass-Wildlife, there is no known cause for the disease. Affected bats have a white fungus on their nose, and exhibit erratic behaviors, such as flying during the day and coming out of hibernation when it is still winter.
Jamie MacNab has been building bat houses to try to help the dwindling bat population. MacNab became interested in bats after he and his wife watched a news report on White Nose Syndrome. This disease could potentially wipe out 80 to 90 percent of the bat population in the next few years, MacNab said.
Bat houses can help rejuvenate the bat population by providing them with a safe place to nest and nurse their young. Bats typically only have one or two pups a year, MacNab said, so it takes a while for the population to recover from disease. While MacNab hasn’t been building bat houses for long, he has already made headway in distributing them around Duxbury. In May, he sold 30 houses at the Duxbury Student Union yard sale (which raised almost $2,800 for the student union). The houses are still for sale through D.S.U., and all profits will benefit the student union. The houses are made of scrap wood, and have black roofs to collect heat and create an ideal living condition for the bats.
“It’s a win-win situation,” McNab said of helping the bats. “Bats aren’t that bad, they have a purpose in life.” Texeira said that while bats could help control mosquitoes, he cautions against relying on them as the sole method of prevention. “Bats fly 20 feet off the ground. Most of the mosquitoes that bite you are only 3 feet off the ground,” Texeira said. Texeira recommends that limiting the mosquitoes habitat within your own backyard is the most effective method of mosquito control. Mosquitoes breed in water, so it is important to get rid of any standing water in your yard and to clean out bird baths regularly. “We have to do self protection,” Texeira said. It is important to wear long sleeves and bug spray when outside.
Take an historic trip to Clark’s Island
The Duxbury Rural and Historical Society’s annual Clark’s Island Picnic will take place Sunday, July 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Cedarfield on the east side of the island. The sermon at Pulpit Rock will be given this year by the Reverend Todd Vetter, Senior Pastor of Pilgrim Church. The society’s annual picnic on Clark’s Island is an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the historic surroundings of Cedarfield, the second oldest house on the island. The house was last owned by poet and scholar Sarah Wingate Taylor and donated to the society nearly 40 years ago by her heirs. Clark’s Island in Plymouth Bay was the spot where the first exploring party from the Mayflower washed ashore in 1620. The group, including William Bradford, Myles Standish, and William Brewster, had been sent out to determine a satisfactory spot for settlement while the Mayflower was anchored off the tip of Cape Cod. A storm forced them to take shelter on Clark’s Island. On the morning of the next day they walked to the top of the island where stands an enormous glacial boulder. As it was Sunday, they there celebrated their first Sabbath ashore in the New World. It was also on this spot that they elected to establish their plantation at Plymouth Bay. For these reasons, the out-
Clark’s Island in Plymouth Bay was the spot where the first exploring party from the Mayflower washed ashore in 1620. cropping on Clark’s Island is known both as Pulpit Rock and Election Rock. To commemorate this event, a sermon reflecting on the history of the location and its meaning to current generations has traditionally been given during the Society’s picnic. All are invited to pack a lunch, head to the Island, and join us for an afternoon of history and fun. For more information about the event, contact the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society at 781-9346106 or visit their website at duxburyhistory.org.

With eye on future, study group looks to the past
Historic district effort meets with early resistance
The Local Historic District Study Committee met with resistance last week as members worked on a course of action for the upcoming year. The group has just begun its work in determining if there should be a historic district in Duxbury and, if so, where the district would be. This process will take at least 18 months. “This is not a process you rush,” said Georgia Taft Pye, a member of the committee. At the meeting, the committee member discussed different areas of town in which a historic district might be needed. While the committee has a great deal of information about High Street from when it was first proposed in 1991, it is by no means the only area under consideration. “If the committee simply looked at High Street, it would be like starting with an end in mind,” Pye said. The committee is studying the town as a whole and is far from deciding on one single area. Area resident Ray MacBy Colleen moore, Clipper intern
Farlene spoke out against the idea of a historic district. MacFarlene said the High Street neighborhood had already decided that it did not want a district in 1991, when the town voted against it. MacFarlene collected signatures against a historic district in the early 1990s. “If you want to preserve something, you don’t need someone telling you what to do,” MacFarlene said. “I would like to see [the committee] look at the fact that you don’t need a historic district anywhere.” Dennis Murphy of High Street collected signatures around the neighborhood in support of a historic district. His actions helped spark the creation of the study committee. “I think there is a consensus for moving forward with High Street,” Murphy said. “Times, and neighbors, have changed since the district was not approved in 1991, and it is worth revisiting the idea of having a district on High
Thursday’s King Caesar lecture offers pearls of wisdom
The “King Caesar Morning Lectures,” presented by the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society continues on Thursday, July 23 with Skip Bennett, founder of Island Creek Oysters. Bennett will tell the remarkable story of this local business that began as a risky idea in the 1990s and is now a nation-wide phenomenon. The event begins with refreshments at 10 a.m. and the lecture commences at 10:30. All lectures take place at the King Caesar Barn on 120 King Caesar Road. Tickets are $5 person and may be purchased at the door. For information about the lecture series, visit the Society’s Web site at duxburyhistory.org or phone 781-934-6106.
Street,” he said. Chairman James Hartford stressed that the committee is not focusing on one particular neighborhood. The committee is a study group that was established to determine if there was a need for a historic district in town, and if so, where the district would be. “As of now, the group is in it’s very early stages of research and planning, and is not limiting itself to one area in town. There is simply a wealth of information about High Street from when it was last proposed in 1991,” Hartford said. The group focused on creating a feasible timeline for completion of the study. While the group originally focused on the 2010 Town Meeting, after reviewing where it was now and what is left to do, they decided that the 2011 Town Meeting was more appropriate. The committee wants to be 100 percent prepared for the meeting, Hartford said. The main focus of the group now is to educate and listen to the public. In late August, the committee will hold a public meeting with Chris Skelly, a representative from the Mass. Historical Commission. From there, the committee is looking forward to hosting coffee sessions, in which some members of the committee will invite residents of historic areas to discuss the establishment of a historic district in their neighborhood. “We need to engage the public and see where they want to have a district,” Terry Vose, a member of the committee, said.

Survey says parking, process are main gripes
continued from page one
Town Meeting and online by the Clipper, the results from the businesses were more disappointing. Out of 300 names compiled from the assessor’s list of businesses and business permit holders, only 19 surveys were returned. “This is not a quantifiable survey, but some things popped out,” said committee member John Bear. The biggest complaint in the survey of business owners was the lack of parking, notably in the Snug Harbor and Hall’s Corner areas. The second biggest problem, according to the survey, is restrictions on signage. “A number of people mentioned a place to sit [in Hall’s Corner,]” said Bear.

The survey indicated an interest in places to eat, both casual and fine dining, as well as a desire for a local hardware store. “That would be kind of fighting a trend of the big box stores, with neighborhood stores,” he said.

Snug Harbor Community Chorus at the Wang Center
It’s not often that a community chorus has a chance to sing at the Wang Center, but that’s exactly what happened recently to Duxbury’s own Snug Harbor Community Chorus. Members of the group were chosen to perform for theater-goers waiting to attend Oprah Winfrey’s musical, “The Color Purple,” now on national tour. “It was like an American Idol but for Boston area community choruses,” says chorus president, Pam Smith, of the internet competition where a video of the choral group was shown and then voted on as a part of the contest to choose participants. Everyone was delighted when we were among those who placed but, she explains, since the quality of sound on the internet was limited, the audition which followed was crucial. “Originally, we had to sing a cappella (without accompaniment) but, once we were selected, we were able to use a keyboard for some of our program,” she notes. Area residents who attended the chorus’ popular spring concert have heard much of the music which was performed during that special evening at the Wang. It included works by Al Gershwin, Mel Brooks, Thomas “Fats” Waller and Marvin Hamlisch. Meg Brady, the member of the chorus who spearheaded the event, was most impressed by the cooperation of everyone involved. “It was a true testament to what community chorus is all about,” she says. It was also a fun occasion for which members carpooled into Boston, met for dinner, and very much enjoyed working with the

Wang staff. As a matter of fact, they were told by staff that they were definitely the best dressed chorus to perform. In addition to their all black formal dress, the female members wore large purple silk flowers in honor of the play. Roy Kelley, artistic director for the chorus, also commented on the cooperation from members who helped with all the ‘road’ work including lugging various pieces of the keyboard into Boston. It was well worth it in the end, he added, “we sang for over half an hour and were very well received.”

Town counsel: vote by selectmen has ‘no effect’
continued from page one
At their June 15 meeting, selectmen reviewed MacDonald’s decision not to renew the police chief’s contract and weighed whether or not the non-renewal was to be considered a termination or “removal” from employment. Selectman also had to decide whether or not they would “ratify,” or formally approve, MacDonald’s decision, if it was deemed a removal. The Town Manager Act of 1987 gives Selectmen the ability to “act upon each appointment and removal made by the town manager within fifteen days following notification.” Selectmen Christopher Donato and Jonathan Witten voted in favor of the interpretation that MacDonald’s decision not to renew the contract equaled a removal. They also voted in favor of a motion not to ratify the town manager’s decision to let the contract lapse. Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan voted against both motions. In Friday’s memo, Troy wrote that he gave the matter “careful review” because “the issue is complicated and poses substantial consequences to a public employee.” He concluded that the failure to renew the police chief’s contract does not constitute a “removal” from employment and, because of this, the selectmen’s powers of ratification under the Town Manager Act do not apply. “It appears that the ramifications of the Board’s vote were subject to misinterpretation,” wrote Troy. “The board’s vote was intended to preserve the town’s ability to subject the town manager’s action to the ratification process.....The board was advised that subsequent legal analysis of all the elements of the police chief’s employment status could render the board’s vote…without any ultimate effect. In light of this legal analysis, the board’s vote, while a valid exercise of the board’s then discretionary authority, is now deemed to have no legal significance.” One reason behind Troy’s decision is the fact that DeLuca entered into a contract with the town and knew of the contract’s provisions, including that it had an ending date and no language related to reappointment. Troy stated that it was incumbent upon the police chief to approve a contract for himself that included specifics favorable to his term of employment. Troy researched Massachusetts state laws and appeals court cases. One such case involves a police union in a suit against the town of Northborough. According to Troy, the appeals court made it clear in this case that a town’s decision not to reappoint a police officer is “a non-delegable managerial prerogative” and that a failure
Failure to renew the police chief’s contract does not constitute a “removal” from employment and, because of this, the selectmen’s powers of ratification do not apply, according to Town Counsel robert Troy.
to re-appoint an officer is not considered a “removal” nor does it require a hearing and a reason showing just cause. Troy also cited another appeals case in which it was determined that “a dismissal is not the same as a non-renewal of a contract.” Troy concluded that “barring other circumstances, the consequences of this action necessarily import that the Police Chief will cease to exercise the powers of his office on the date of expiration of the contract [Nov. 20, 2009]...” When reached for reaction Monday, MacDonald said he did not want to elaborate on Troy’s memo, saying: “I’m not going to comment other than to say the opinion speaks for itself.” Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan said Troy’s conclusions support her views on the issue. “His opinion bears out what I’ve believed to be true from the beginning of this discussion,” said Sullivan. When asked why Troy did
not give selectmen this information before their June 15 vote, Sullivan responded that the board had asked him for it and had received a legal opinion with information on taking a vote of ratification but that “he told us it was a very complex issue and he needed more time to research it.” As to next steps, Sullivan said: “The town manager will move forward with his plans for the police department. I’m hopeful this can get resolved and we can all move on.” When asked for his reaction to Troy’s memo, Selectman Jon Witten said: “I think the opinion clarifies the earlier opinion and it speaks for itself.” Witten said he still feels that the non-renewal notice given to the police chief was “tantamount to a termination” and added that he stands by his vote of June 15 because his opinion was based on the information supplied to him by
Troy at that meeting. “It doesn’t change my mind in terms of the vote taken at the time,” said Witten. “Did the selectmen overstep their authority on June 15? The answer is no. The question was never whether the selectmen have the power to order the contract renewed and tell the town manager what to do.” When asked what the town’s next steps are for this issue, Witten said: “That is up to the police chief’s counsel, the chief and town counsel. If the contract isn’t renewed, then the contract isn’t renewed. I expect at this point, there really aren’t any next steps.” Selectman Christopher Donato said Troy’s memo doesn’t really change his feelings on the issue. He said the town has a good police chief who manages the department very well and shouldn’t be let go. “I don’t know if I completely agree with it,” he said about Troy’s decision, but he
acknowledged that “there is no real impact of the vote other than two out of three selectmen expressed their opinion that the decision wasn’t necessarily in the town’s best interest.” Donato said he doesn’t agree with Troy’s conclusion that a removal from employment is not a termination, “It is the equivalent of a termination,” said Donato. “Look, we have a good chief. Please tell me why it is necessary to get rid of this guy. The only reason I’ve heard so far is ‘Because I can.’ That’s not how I treat people. “I am still hoping we can work this out,” Donato continued. “I’m not going to give up hope until the last second. I truly believe that retaining the chief is in the best interest of the town.” Deluca’s attorney, Gerard McAuliffe of Quincy, did not return calls seeking comment.

hat bird eats up to 200 percent of its body weight in food a day giving it the highest metabolism of any animal on earth, flaps its wings up to 90 times per second depending on the species, spends nearly 80 percent of its time digesting food, can slow down its metabolism at night and enter a hibernation-like state, can have a heart rate as high as 1260 beats per minute, rotates its wings when flapping, is among the smallest birds in the world, is found only in the Americas and can fly backwards? The hummingbird! A tiny collection of colors like shattered glass, whirling wings, saber-like bill and pugnacious personality! When a female Rubythroated Hummingbird visited my yard earlier this week I was interested that it found my pale purple flowering Hosta plant inviting. Hummingbirds will not attempt to take nectar from a plant that is not properly constructed with deep-throated, tubular flowers nor will it eat from flowers that have less than 10% sugar in their nectar! (Did you know that hummingbirds coevolved along with tubular flowered plants?) The flowers that are pollinated by hummingbirds are mostly red, orange or yellow although the birds will eat from plants with other colored flowers, like my Hosta. Since insects pollinate plants of other colors more readily, the competition for pollen is reduced. Hosta flowers are tubular and must be very sweet! Here in the east, we have only one species of hummingbird that breeds, the Ruby-throated. Recently, a western species, the Rufous has been drifting over from the west along the Gulf coast to spend its winters with us in the northeast. If your goal is to see the full glory of this bird you need to head west. You can sit under a cottonwood tree in Arizona near a feeder and rack up about 18 species in a day! Costa’s, Black-throated, Magnificent, Anna’s, Rufous, Broad-billed, Broad-tailed, Buffbellied, Calliope, Violet-crowned and so many more. Buzzing around your head, performing balletic moves no crow can imagine, feigning a deadly battle with a rival one minute, gone the next. If you cannot make it to the southwest just now, buy a cheap plastic hummingbird feeder and hang it near your window. Make a nectar according to the instructions that come with the feeder and hope these amazing, most American birds visit you. For lots of information on hummers, check out hummingbirdworld.com. and watch out, becoming a hummingbird fan can make all the other birds seem drab and uninteresting.

Five ways to a more businessfriendly Duxbury
t’s unfortunate that more people (especially business owners) didn’t respond to the Economic Advisory Committee’s survey about how to improve the climate for business owners in Duxbury. It’s certainly a worthy issue, and one that invites meticulous study and careful discussion. Duxbury is a town that wants to support local business, but also wants to preserve the rural and residential nature of the town. Those aren’t mutually exclusive things, and we feel the town can do both. Here are five suggestions for making Duxbury more business-friendly: Listen, listen listen: Nineteen survey responses are simply not enough to determine how the business community feels about Duxbury. Maybe filling out a survey isn’t the best way to gauge the pulse of the community. We suggest holding a series of community meetings in the business neighborhoods around town. This could also help narrow the focus as to the specific needs of each zone. Hall’s Corner may not face the same problems as Millbrook, or as Snug Harbor, and so on and so on. Getting out into the community may get a better response than mailing a survey. Encourage mixed use: Nobody seems to like cul-de-sacs filled with McMansions, and residents seem to have the same distaste for large commercial developments or box stores. But mixed use buildings –– retail on the first floor, office space on the second, apartments on the third, for example –– may be a way to satisfy the needs of both residents and merchants without making things looks too –– well, commercial. The Millbrook development, if it goes through, might be a good template for future mixed-use projects in town. Streamline the permitting process: Whether it’s fair or not, certain boards around town have a reputation as being anti-business. To some extent, such resistance to development has keep Duxbury the unique looking town that it is, and the move to purchase open space will protect the rural character of the town in the future. But such a reputation may keep the good businesses away, and make things difficult for the folks already in town. Making the process fair and clear, dependent on a structured system rather than the whim of board members, would go a long way toward encouraging good business in town. Update the parking bylaw: Although a recent move to change the town’s parking and lot coverage requirements failed at town meeting, people on all sides of the debate seem to agree that the rules need updating. And everyone is in agreement that parking is the biggest challenge local businesses face. We suggest that representatives from the business community sit down with the town planner or other town representatives to work out a compromise. –– J. Graeber What do you think would make Duxbury a more business friendly community? Send your thoughts to editor@ duxburyclipper.com and we’ll print the results in a future issue.
s much as we may find solicitations annoying, saying a personal “No” is far better than saying “No” for the entire town of Duxbury. Finding donation requests tiresome is a small price to pay for being able to help children and adults with Muscular Dystrophy and ALS (Fill the Boot), for example. How annoying is it to spend your life in a wheelchair? In this case, I understand that Duxbury has been among the highest donors for three years in a row. That is certainly something to be proud of. I believe we (including employees) have a right to ask for charitable do-

nations; a right to help people in need and a right to say “Yes” or “No” to a request. (no high pressure, please!) Do we shrink from giving to the town high school football team, our college alumni fund, our churches (10% of income), the Cancer Society, the Republicans, the Democrats, or how about the Jimmy Fund, the Fourth of July Parade, Sierra Club, Humane Society, Jordan Hospital, Razia’s appeal to collect sneakers for Afghanistan youngsters or even the Red Cross appeal for blood donations, just to name a few. Just different packaging! There are grave needs and some have the
passion to do something about it. For some it comes in the form of money, sneakers, or serving, but we are doing (giving) something to help people in need, those less fortunate than ourselves, and for research, aid and support. Or could it be an appeal is only acceptable if it comes in the form of a cocktail party? Don’t take the privilege away from those who want the opportunity to give. We don’t want to be known as Duxbury, the town with the mean and stingy spirit. Abigail R. Forrest Standish Street
was so happy to read in the July 8th issue of the Duxbury Clipper that the Coolidge Corner Theater will be showing films in the PAC. I have been a patron of the Coolidge Corner Theater for years. However, I thought it should be known that the state-
Independent cinema lives on the South Shore ––
ment in the article that “There’s nothing on the South Shore that’s showing the independent non-mall plex type movies” is not accurate. The Plimoth Cinema located at the Plimoth Plantation has been showing foreign and independent films on a weekly basis year round.
They are going into their third season. I think it’s wonderful that the Coolidge Corner Theater and the Plimoth Plantation are bringing such a wonderful variety of films to the South Shore. Ellen Goodman Church Street
Thank you to Officer Friend Weiler ––––––––
his past week our sons had the opportunity to spend a week at the Jr. Police Academy here in Duxbury. This five day program, which is part of the DARE program, is offered free of charge to students who may have an interest in law enforcement. What they take away is much more than an overview of how the law works. The students in the program got a behind the scenes look at how the police station operates, how to write up offenses and issue tickets, as well as how to use
a radar gun on potential fast drivers. Time was also spent on water safety, first aid and a dramatization of hypothermia. The students also engaged in team building activities at the ropes course at the high school and had an enlightening trip to the Plymouth County Correctional Facility where they listened to convicted inmates tell their stories of decisions made that landed them there. The final day involved gun safety and archery with a lunchtime cookout. How fortunate we are to have this program available
to our children and to have our school resource officer, Friend Weiler, responsible for coordinating it. It was a worthwhile week that combined great information and fun. Donations to the DARE program keep this program running and keep our children engaged in a very worthwhile effort. Our heartfelt thanks for all your time and dedication to Duxbury youth, Friend, and for a great week for our boys. Fran Horgan, Donna Ryan and Elena Zongrone

dear friend has passed away. Paul Arsenian died on July 6, 2009 after taking ill while vacationing in New Jersey. Paul will be remembered for his intellect, gentle heart, ferocious defense of those he loved, and unparalleled devotion to the Town of Duxbury. Many of you have said that no one could conceive of all he has done for our town, and honestly I think that would please him. He quietly worked to make Duxbury, and especially our schools, a better than they were before he
A dear friend will be missed ––––––––––––––
got involved. As a result, many of us can honestly say that having had the privilege of being considered worth his time and effort, we are better people for knowing him. Paul challenged us to think with an open mind, not a closed heart; commit our energy to building up, not tearing down; and to always look toward the future by finding new people “with a little common sense” and encouraging them to make a difference. We can never replace his particular brand of brilliance, but only hope to honor him by making Duxbury a bit better
than how we found it. It is my understanding that Paul’s philosophy will continue on as a scholarship is being formed in his memory. As more details become known I will do my best to let people know. In the interim, I suggest inquiries be directed to the administration at the Duxbury schools. I cannot begin to know all of the people he has touched, but feeling this loss I wanted to share just a few thoughts in memory of Paul. He will be missed. Betsy Sullivan Board of Selectmen

Name: Rob Reardon How long have you worked for the town: I was hired in 2002 and will be on the department for seven years this August. What did you do before working here: I worked for Fox 25 News as a videographer and live truck operator covering news events all over New England. My main job was chasing breaking new stories in the Boston area but also covered general news and sports. Before working at Fox, I worked as a photographer/videographer at New England Cable News, The Boston Globe and The Boston Herald. What do you like most about your job: I remember when I grew up, my Dad would bring me to our neighborhood firehouse. Every time we went there we were welcomed and the firemen would give us tours, answer all our questions and let us climb on the rigs. Now that I am a firefighter, I enjoy doing those same things for kids who are interested in firefighting! We have children who come to the firehouse on a regular basis and it is great to be able teach them about firefighting in Duxbury. One of the other things I like about being a firefighter is Rob helping people when they really need it. ReaRdon We can show up on a person’s worst day and UnsUng DUxbUry we do our best to help JUly 2009 in any way we can. It is very rewarding to be able to help people when they need it. What’s the biggest challenge: I think the biggest challenge as a firefighter/paramedic is keeping up with added responsibilities, new technology and training. Many years ago a firefighter fought fires and that was their only job. Today most departments like Duxbury run an ambulance service in addition to our firefighting duties. All new firefighters in Duxbury are dual trained paramedic/firefighters. All of Duxbury’s firefighters are either EMT’s or paramedics. We must constantly keep up with training on both the fire and medical jobs to keep our skills sharp. What town do you live in currently: I live in Carver. What do you like to do in your free time: I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and two boys and, when I am not doing that, I also love photography. I started with photography 25+ years ago and have never put the camera down. I recently started a website to showcase some of my published photos from the last 20 years. You can see these photos at AllCompaniesWorking.com Please recommend a favorite book or movie: One of my favorite books is “Firefighting Reflections” by retired Boston Fire Commissioner Leo Stapleton. In this book Stapleton writes about his experiences in all his ranks starting with firefighter and ending with commissioner. Growing up in the city I saw Commissioner Stapleton at all the big fires and always looked up to him.

FROM THE ARCHIVES
Twenty Years Ago June/July 1989 (Summary of a Duxbury Clipper two-part article, “Hollywood Comes to Duxbury” by Paula Maxwell) The opening scenes of a Steven Spielberg feature film, “Dad” was shot in Duxbury in June of 1989. The Duxbury location, a historic home on Standish Street, was to represent a New Jersey 1940’s farm scene. The film starred Jack Lemmon, Olympia Dukakis, Ted Dansen, and Kathy Baker, although none of these actors were on location for the shoot in Duxbury. The scene depicted a dream sequence of Lemmon’s character in earlier years, and starred Lemmon’s son, Christopher, and his wife Gina, portraying Jack
Lemmon’s character and wife in their younger days. About seven scenes were
shot in Duxbury, or about 20 minutes worth of film, in the course of two days.
Assistant production manager Tom Burke radios Harbormaster Don Beers to assure the cove will be clear for filming on the Photo by Chris Bernstein Standish Street set of 1989’s “Dad.”
ohn Alden was alleged to be the first man to step onto Plymouth Rock. It was fitting therefore that one of his descendants, Willard F. Rockwell, Jr. (1914-1992), made it possible for another momentous first step. When Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the Moon on July 21, 1969, and uttered the historic phase “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, this new “Plymouth Rock” moment was accomplished through the efforts of the massive Saturn V rocket engines manufactured by the North American Rockwell Company, of which Col. Willard “Al” Rockwell, Jr. was CEO. Mr. Rockwell was a descendant of the Aldens though his mother Clara Whitcomb Thayer, who traced her ancestry back to John and Priscilla’s second son, Joseph.
Alden Root and Branch: Willard F. Rockwell, Jr.
Rockwell grew up in the manufacturing business. In 1919, his father Willard F. Rockwell, Sr., reorganized a small axle company as Wisconsin Parts Company, and then took over Timken Detroit Axle and Standard Steel Spring Company. In 1953, these three companies merged to form Rockwell Spring and Axle Company, which became Rockwell-Standard in 1958. The company developed the first computer modem in 1955, which was as large as a refrigerator and weighed 700 pounds. Willard Rockwell, Jr. received a degree in engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and served as a captain in the U. S. Army during World War II. He succeeded his father in 1967, and became president of both Rockwell Standard and Rockwell Manufacturing. It was on his watch that the company developed the Apollo Command/ Service Module that first brought men onto the moon. Following a series of mergers, the company changed its name to Rockwell International in 1973, and developed the new Space Shuttles. He stepped down from the company’s head in 1979 and retired in 1989. This article is part of an ongoing series highlighting famous Alden descendants. Ed.

Aldens to host golf tournament
The eighth annual golf tournament to benefit The Alden House Historic Site is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28 at the Duxbury Yacht Club Golf Course. Tee off for the scramble format tournament will commence with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., with registration beginning at 12 p.m. Greens fee, cart, lunch, beverages, snacks, mulligans, an awards banquet and tournament gifts are included in the registration fee of $150. Cocktails, featuring a raw bar, donated by Schucks Seafood Catering of Marshfield, buffet, raffle and an awards ceremony will take place at the “19th Hole Reception” immediately following the tournament at the Duxbury Senior Center. Proceeds from the event, sponsored in part by Innate Swing Chiropractic and Fitness, will further the organization’s mission of developing a major museum, family attraction and educational center in Duxbury, featuring the Alden House as its centerpiece. The Alden House Historic Site and the adjacent “1627 First Site” are now officially recognized as a National Historic Landmark, reflecting the deep significance in American culture of the heritage of John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, the archaeological importance of their ancestral home site, and the influence of their inspiring story through Longfellow’s beloved saga, The Courtship of Miles Standish. The Alden House, one of very few remaining homes in the country inhabited by
the same family for over 350 years, gives the Alden Kindred a unique opportunity to bring history alive through the lives and livelihoods of an average American family. Registration forms available at The Alden House Museum Gift Shop, alden.org or by calling 781-934-9092. For more information call “Rink” Ringquist at 781-934-2879, Bonnie Conant at 781-8378666 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Teen car thief picked up on hot tractor
A New Hampshire teen trying to get to Texas allegedly dumped a stolen car in Duxbury before being arrested shortly after on a tractor taken from a Pembroke home last Friday. The 14-year-old male from Loudon, N.H. also was found with two BB guns and an ammunition clip from a .25-caliber pistol, according to police reports. State police began chasing the teen on Route 3 around 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 17 after discovering the youth was driving a vehicle he allegedly stole in Laconia, N.H. State police lost sight of the teen when he pulled off onto Route 14 and later found the vehicle, a Ford Taurus, abandoned on Route 14 near the Duxbury/ Pembroke town line, according to reports. About an hour later, around 9:30 p.m., Pembroke police came across a teen driving a John Deere tractor down Taylor Street and, after pulling him over, found the driver to be the alleged car thief sought by state police. Police believe the boy took off on foot after abandoning the car and broke into a barn and shed behind a Taylor Street home, where he took a container of gasoline, started up the tractor and then drove off. Both the Ford and the tractor were damaged. The teen was arrested and charged with larceny of a motor vehicle (tractor), two counts of felony breaking and entering at the Taylor Street home, malicious destruction of property over $250, improper possession of ammunition and two counts of minor possession of a BB gun. He could face other charges from state police. The teen allegedly told police he had been on his way to a relative’s home in Texas. Police said there was no evidence the boy was intoxicated. He was later released to his parents and was to be arraigned in juvenile court on Monday.

Duxbury Art Association encourages skaters to paint their boards
Sometimes, art isn’t about a canvas and brushes. The artists involved in the Duxbury Art Associaton’s most recent gallery showing, the Skateboard Art Challenge, use things like spray paint and computers to create some of the pieces on display at the Ellison Center. Their medium isn’t a stretched piece of white canvas, but the wood of a skateboard itself. The exhibit opened Wednesday, July 15 and will run through July 31. At the opening reception, young artists who think Rembrandt is that guy who wrote the Friends theme song mingled with residents whose idea of a night out is a gallery reception at the Museum of Fine Arts.

swirling, sometimes roiling music of fully mature impressionist music. Unlike the popular, almost humorous exercise of “Bolero,” Ravel’s concerto reminded me of Debussy’s “La Mer” or his “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun.” Lu’s performance was crisp and fluid, and made full use of the PAC’s beautiful Steinway piano. In typical Pops fashion, the concert included works from around the world. Palmer and his orchestra played Johann Strauss’s waltz “On the Beautiful Blue Danube” as if they were born to the famous Vienna “Lilt.” The cadence is hard to describe, but easy to hear – nearly syncopation that lifts the ¾ time of a waltz out of the realm of beer drinking song and into a floating spin for dancers, musicians, and audience members alike. The orchestra’s rendition of a medley from Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story” reminded us of the depth, power, and interest of Tian Lu, winner of South Shore Bernstein’s musical, Conservatory’s 2008 Duxbury Music composed at a time when a hit Broadway Festival Solo Competition. show might have four or five smash melodies, not just one. It was easy to understand why the show has been revived in New York. The performance of John Williams’ “E.T., Adventures on Earth” earned a well deserved spot in the show. Program music at its best, Williams’ work brought all the images from the film back to life – I could nearly hear the laughter of the flying children in the family science fiction film. Free concerts – student recitals – remain as the Festival winds up today, July 22 at 4:30 pm at the Ellison Center for the Arts on St George Street, tomorrow at the same place and time, and again next Wednesday and Thursday at the same place. The Festival’s Faculty Concert ($25) is scheduled for 7:30 Friday, July 24 at the Ellison Center and the Winners Concert ($45) the following Friday at the same place and time. Contact the South Shore Conservatory at 781-749-7565, extension 14 for ticketing information, or go online at www. duxburymusicfestival.org. Meanwhile, the Southeast Alumni Symphony Orchestra prepares for its PAC concert on August 5. I’ll write about it again in a week or two, but for now I want to point out that Duxbury music lovers are blessed with an embarrassment of riches in the summer. And speaking of links, webs, strings and connections – you may be in for a treat at the SASO concert. A percussionist (me!) has threatened to come out of retirement to play, for the first time before an audience, with a symphony orchestra. I’ve played with brass bands, but never with an orchestra, never with strings. I look forward to the chance. But don’t worry. Someone else will handle the mighty and well-timed cymbal crashes.

Street artists plied their wares outside the door of the Ellison Center. And the folks at the DAA couldn’t have been happier. “We thought it would be a fun, fresh event to cast our net a little wider,” said Mary Beth Brown of the DAA. She said the idea for the skateboard showing first came about in the spring, and that it was really the first event of its kind for the association. She pointed to the rising popularity of street artists like Shepard Fairey, who garnered national attention when he painted the iconic “Hope” poster for then presidentialhopeful Barack Obama. He recently had a popular exhibit at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Boston. “It’s a growing field,” she said.“Maybe it isn’t condoned in school, or their parents aren’t crazy about it ... but they’re enthusiastic and crazy about their art. Some of the artists at the opening reception seemed tickled that their work would be hanging on the walls of such an established art gallery. Many hadn’t really considered their work “art” before this. “I’m always drawing,” said Christian Fuda, pausing in front of his work. “Now that they’re doing this, I decided to buy a board and put the design on it.” For Brown, the influx of new blood is just what the DAA is hoping for. “Our mission statement is ‘for the artist in everyone,’” she said. “I want to focus on that.”

Mini-documentary recreates Powder Point estate in the days of King Caesar T
he King Caesar House, owned and operated by the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society as a museum, is celebrating its bicentennial this year. The house on Powder Point belonged to Ezra Weston II (1772-1842), known as “King Caesar” due to his success in shipbuilding and mercantile trade. Weston owned the leading shipping firm on the South Shore and one of the largest in New England. 200 years ago, his home was the center of Duxbury’s largest industry. The Society has several projects in the works to mark the bicentennial of one of Duxbury’s most historic houses. On Aug. 22, from 7-9 p.m., the Society will host an evening reception celebrating the 200th birthday of the King Caesar House. The event will be held at scenic Bumpus Park, once King Caesar’s wharf. Tickets are $35 per person and may be obtained by contacting the Society at 781-934-6106. The reception will feature music, food by Crazy Chefs Catering, and a silent auction. A key component of the evening will be the debut of a new mini-documentary titled, “In the Days of King Caesar: The Weston Estate on Powder Point.” The video will be screened for the first time at the King Caesar House on August 22 during the reception. Produced by Duxbury resident Bryan Felty of Good Bones Productions, the short video is a computer animated simulation depicting the evolution of the Weston Estate in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Included in the “virtual tour” are the first Weston shipyard, the Eliphas Weston House, the Ezra Weston I House, the wharf with its commercial buildings, the Ropewalk and the King Caesar House, as originally built and as modified c. 1840. Felty also produced the recreation of Duxbury’s World War I Memorial, currently under reconstruction, that was shown at this year’s Town Meeting. Thanks to an 1840s architectural plan book assembled by Alden Bradford Weston (King Caesar’s son who came to inherit the King Caesar House), all the data necessary for a 3-D re-creation of the estate was already documented. According to Patrick Browne, Executive Director of the Society, “We’ve long wanted to use the architectural drawings to create a simulation of the property, but the technology has only recently become readily accessible. Also, without Bryan’s involvement, this simply would have been impossible.” Viewers of the video may be surprised to learn that A dockside-view of the King Caesar estate, part of a computer-generated documentary that shows Bumpus Park once contained what the estate would have looked like during the height of Duxbury’s ship building days. five large wharf buildings, including a counting house, a sail loft and warehouses. The Ropewalk, where the Westons manufactured most of the cordage for Duxbury’s shipyards, has, according to tour guides at the King Caesar House, always been a difficult structure for visitors to imagine. It was 1,000 feet long, stretching from King Caesar Road to Powder Point Avenue. The video provides an accurate sense of the tremendous size of the industrial building. Those with questions about the video project or the evening reception on August 22 may contact the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society at 781-934-6106 or visit the Society’s website at www.duxburyhistory.org.
A dock in front of the King Caesar house contained five structures used in the shipbuilding industry.
