Quake’s shock felt in Duxbury
Local Episcopalian order of sisters has a Haitian connection
The deadly quake in Haiti has send reverberations around the world, even reaching Duxbury, where an Episcopal order worried about their sisters thousands of miles away. The Sisters of St. Margaret came to this country in 1873 and is headquartered in Boston, but they have a complex in Duxbury near the Town Green where they hold retreats and training. The order has also had a presence in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince since 1927.
By Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

Three sisters and several sisters-in-training were at that facility on Tuesday, Jan. 12, when a massive earthquake struck the island nation. The sisters in Duxbury, Superior Sr. Carolyn Darr and Assistant Superior Sr. Adele Marie Ryan, frantically reached out to Haiti to make sure their fellow sisters were OK. The three women, Sr. Marjorie Raphael, Sr. Marie Margaret and Sr. Marie Therese, are alive, but only minimal phone conversations have taken place.

A fresh approach to beer
ny brewer will tell you, a good stout is the sum of its parts. A good dark beer can have hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and ... oyster? It seems an unlikely pairing, but the brewers at Harpoon and the growers at Island Creek Oysters are hoping the unique craft beer catches on. Although the beer, part of Harpoons’s limited 100 barrel series, Skip Bennett of Island Creek and Katie Tame of Harpoon Brewery share a glass of the new Island Creek Stout. Courtesy photo.

Board of Selectmen race and the School Committee contest. James Taylor of Surplus Street took out papers to run for selectman, and Mary Lou Buell of Mayflower Street withdrew papers to run for School Committee.

Both of these races were thrown wide open when, late last year, the incumbent selectman Jon Witten and both sitting School Committee members, George Cipolletti and Karen Wong said they would not run. There are currently three people seeking Witten’s seat and three candidates for the two school slots. Candidates for office must sign out nomination papers from the town clerk. They then have until Feb. 8 to obtain 50 signatures from registered Duxbury voters and return the papers. Annual Town Meeting is March 13. The spring town

The $4,000 figure quoted in last week’s story about the search for the next school superintendent was actually the amount the committee spent on advertising the position, not the cost of the entire search. The total cost of the 2007 superintendent search was closer to $30,000, according to School Committee members.

Making music in Duxbury
Open house showcases Ellison Center
The doors of the Ellison Center for the Arts opened to the public this weekend, and children of all ages got to explore the world of music. The occasion was the South Shore Conservatory’s Family Arts Festival. Although the Conservatory has done family-themed events before, it was the first time classes were combined with an open house for the center. Visting children and their families were treated to a play called “Are You My Instrument Family?,” a take-off on the popular children’s book “Are You My Mother?” In the play, said Anne Smith Briggs of the Conservatory, a baby violin travels throughout Massachusetts, meeting other instruments and searching for her mother. “It introduces kids to all the different kinds of instruments – woodwinds, percussion, brass,” she said. The play was also interactive, with audience participation and singing. Over 200 people attended the free open house. “The hall was full, they seemed to have a really good time,” said Briggs. After the play, the children and their families fanned out across the building for a host of activities and classes. The event was designed to promote the Conservatory’s morning classes, which are set to begin the first week in February. One room held a drumming and singing class, and in another, dancers from the Jose Mateo company led a movement seminar, another a drama performance. The day also included an “instrument petting zoo,”

where students could try different instruments and meet the Conservatory’s faculty. “The kids had a great time honking away,” Briggs said. She hoped the petting zoo would give students a chance to explore different musical choices. In Duxbury, students at Alden can take instrument lessons starting in fifth grade, and the number of students who do play something is high. In addition to the Conservatory’s showcase, the Duxbury Art Association, which is also housed at the Ellison center, ran classes on the upper floor. The DAA also created “passports,” which children could have stamped at each activity. “It was a real joint effort,” said Briggs. “One of the things were really wanted to do was to get people into the Ellison

Center ... it could be the cultural heart of Duxbury.”

n Friday, Jan. 10, a select group of Duxbury students were excused from school to attend the 52nd Annual Southeastern Senior District High School Music Festival at Oliver Ames High School in Easton. All the students who attended this two day festival auditioned last October in a very competitive process with approximately 100 schools participating. Students prepared the music over the past few months and rehearsed as a group on Friday and Saturday morning for the concert. The students are fortunate to work with conductors from colleges and other professional venues during the entire festival. The concert program consisted of the chorus, the jazz band, orchestra, and the concert band. The choral selections displayed an interesting ranging from MuSiC notES contrast in tastes, the Harp” andJosef Haydn’s “Awake finished with Paul Simon’s “Bridge Over Troubled Waters.” The stirring arrangement of the famous Simon and Garfunkel piece earned a standing ovation and thunderous applause. Next in the program was the jazz band. After the conclusion of the jazz band, the orchestra took the stage. The orchestra provided a lively performance. The individual sections of the ensemble blended well to form a moving performance. Duxbury violinist Michelle Puopolo said, “It was an exciting experience as a freshman to be exposed to so many excellent players. It was a great environment for learning.” As always, the orchestra is accompanied by a select few leading wind players. Duxbury is honored to have four of these highly talented individuals: Trevor Barrington on snare drum, Connor Inglis on trumpet, Alex Kosharek on clarinet, and Nora Serres on oboe. The final group to perform was the concert band. The band performed a piece composed by the band’s director, Andrew Boysen. Being able to work with a new conductor is an excellent experience for these young musicians as well as being able to work with the composer. “Working under a new conductor is always a beneficial experience for any musician,” said Duncan Edgar, a clarinetist in the concert band. “Mr. Boysen was no exception. His ideas on tone and intonation were a great lesson for me.” All students were privileged to perform with such a high caliber group of dedicated students. The town of Duxbury should be proud of these students as well as the music program as a whole. Duxbury musicians consistently have a strong representation at this prestigious music festival. Congratulations to Duxbury High School Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Ric Madru and Jill Noerenberg, for their acceptance in the Massachusetts Music Educators’ Association All State Concert which will be held on March 19 in Boston. Additional details will be provided later. Four Duxbury High School musicians auditioned and were selected to perform in the Massachusetts Music Educators’ Conference concert to be held in a Boston hotel on March 19 and at Boston Symphony Hall. Congratulations to the following outstanding musicians: Connor Inglis- trumpet; Alex Kosharek- clarinet; Nora Serres- oboe; and Phil Della Noce tenor, chorus. The Duxbury High School music department’s honors band and orchestra, the Wind Ensemble and String Ensemble, have been selected to play in New York City’s world renowned Carnegie Hall. Both groups sent recordings last fall to the Field Studies International organization and were among the few groups accepted to play in the prestigious performance facility this spring. Students sold holiday raffle tickets for two chances to win big. Two lucky Duxbury High School students were the raffle winners. Maria Varonko won the grand prize, a HD television, generously donated by the Jernigan-Smith family. Mike Koulopolos won second prize which is a weekend time share on Martha’s Vineyard, graciously given by the Startzell family.

Duxbury resident saves bystander at hockey game
Former Hingham police chief Joe McCracken is alive and well this week due to the quick thinking of a handful of strangers at a hockey game. On Sunday, Jan. 10, McCracken was playing hockey at the Pilgrim Skating Arena in Hingham when he collapsed after coming off the ice. Several bystanders immediately knew that he was having a heart attack. Among them was Milton Hospital ICU nurse Sharon Demio. She and three others went into instant action to save McCracken’s life. While CPR was immediately administered, a quick thinking rink employee

scrambled to locate the nearest electronic defibrillator (AED) machine at a nearby nursing home. Demio worked with an off-duty Duxbury off-duty firefighter to resuscitate him using the AED. “I was happy to be in the right place at the right time,” said Demio. The Duxbury native and mother of three has been a registered nurse in the ICU of Milton Hospital for nearly 15 years. Demio has reached out to Pilgrim Skating Arena in Hingham and they assured her that an AED will definitely be purchased for the facility in the very near future.

A Tufankjian Family Dealership

➢ For Lily Macaulay’s eighth birthday she asked that, in lieu of gifts, friends bring a small donation to the Save-ADog shelter in Sudbury. She was able to raise $205, and presented it to director Shirley Moore this past weekend, where she got to meet and make friends with “Rebel,” a rat terrier. Ms. Moore said, “I was so touched by (Lily”s) gift that I decided to make her Rebel’s sponsor. The adopters will send regular updates about Rebel via e-mail. She is a very special girl.” ➢ Eli and Heather Allen announce the birth of their son, Knox Blynne Allen, born Jan. 12, 2010. He will join his brother Lukas.

It was an amazing event and the girls did an outstanding job.

Cutler, 39, is a former selectman, legislative aide and newspaper editor. He currently serves on the Duxbury Planning Board. “We need to change the way we do things on Beacon Hill. I’ve seen government from the inside and the outside and I can bring a fresh approach to the problems we face,” he said. “For the past ten years I’ve run a small business, so I know what it’s like to live within a budget and make tough spending decisions.” Cutler, a Democrat, said his focus is protecting the quality of life on the South Shore and cited issues of school funding, economic development, budget reform and alternative energy among his priorities. In addition to working with town and school leaders to manage the current budget climate, Cutler said his priorities in Duxbury include reforming Chapter 40B, increasing awareness for Lyme disease

Water concerns prompt town Meeting warrant article
Washington Street resident Nancy Landgren wants Duxbury residents to start thinking about the water they drink and how the town manages its water system, so she is bringing forth a citizen’s petition article to the annual Town Meeting in March. Landgren’s article stems from her concern that the town may one day privatize its water service to save money. Her article states that since water is “a basic human right” Duxbury’s water system should be held “in public trust for the benefit and use by the residents … and should be operated by the Town of Duxbury for the greater good.” The article also seeks to prohibit privatizing or outsourcing how the town’s water is maintained or delivered. Landgren told Selectmen Monday that she has a motion for Town Meeting that will ask that there be no change in how Duxbury operates its water system. “I’m mostly interested in opening up a conversation,” said Landgren. “I’m asking that we keep it operating the same way it is now.” Town Manager Richard MacDonald said he felt Landgren’s article was prompted by comments he made at last year’s Town Meeting. At that time, he said he would be investigating ways to save the town money, including looking into privatizing the town’s water department. However, there are no plans to go forward with this idea. Instead, MacDonald asked the Duxbury water advisory board to research that option. The board is in the process of preparing a report on the issue

Protecting Assets During Challenging Business Times
Small businesses are the engine of the economy, and when the economy sputters they often feel it first. In the current climate of uncertainty, many small businesses have cut expenses to the bone and tried to make their operations as lean and efficient as possible. But even if a small business owner can’t control the marketplace, he or she can take steps to protect their key assets: the people the business relies upon. Details Matter To Customers A recession tests customer loyalty, as people cut back on spending and carefully weigh their options for even necessary purchases. For businesses that are strapped themselves, it may be easy to let attention to the details of customer service David W. Shea, slip. But this is the time that details matter most, Financial Services Professional whether it’s taking the trouble to send a holiday New York Life note to your mailing list or offering special deals Insurance Company to prize patrons. The key to their loyalty is to let them know they matter to you. Appreciate Your Employees Of course, you want your employees to know they’re important, too. You need their knowledge and experience to navigate the uncertain times. The recession might mean sacrifices for everyone, but it is also a time to make sure valued workers know how much they are appreciated. Even small gestures, like movie tickets or a night at a local restaurant, can keep morale steady. Supplement Benefits, Not Costs You may want to consider “beefing up” your employee benefits package. A “Voluntary Payroll Deduction” (VPD) program is one of the most popular ways employees can purchase additional, personally-owned life insurance. A VPD program can usually be set up using your existing procedures for payroll deduction. A life insurance agent would then meet individually with each employee to explain the benefits of life insurance and the ease with which it can be purchased. All products purchased through VPD are employee-owned and paid for, with no direct out-of-pocket cost to you except the cost of administration. The VPD offerings can be a smart way to supplement your overall benefits package, without draining your budget. Note: Employee participation in a payroll deduction insurance program is completely voluntary. Since this program is not intended to be subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), employers cannot contribute to, or endorse, this program. Protect Yourself As the owner of a business, you are the most important piece of the puzzle. And especially during difficult times, it is important to think about how the business would function without you. One thing that can provide a greater sense of security is a comprehensive life insurance policy. It can be tailored to fit your needs and ensure that those who rely on you every day would be provided for. So when you think about protecting your assets in this economy, consider your human assets first.

that will be ready soon, said committee member George Wadsworth. Selectman Jon Witten said Duxbury has no plans to privatize the water department, especially considering the investment the town has made in its wells and infrastructure. “We’d never sell our wells,” said Witten. “That’s out of the question.” Wadsworth said it is “not uncommon” for cities and towns to have private companies run their water departments. Cohasset has this type of arrangement, he said. There are benefits and negatives to it, he added. While the water advisory board’s report is not finished yet, Wadsworth said: “I don’t

think this report will say privatizing is something we should do.” Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan said she could not support the article as it was written because it was “too inclusive” regarding what type of water department work could be outsourced. Wadsworth said that leak detection and pipe cleaning as well as major construction projects are often contracted out to private companies. “The language needs refining,” said Sullivan. “I can’t support it.” Selectmen plan to discuss Landgren’s article at an upcoming meeting.

New rates at transfer station

“You never know when you’re going to get through,” said Darr. “We feared the worst,” said Ryan. “We still don’t know how they ended up being unharmed.” For several days after the quake, the Haitian sisters were stuck in the ruins of their former convent only a few blocks from the presidential palace. They run a home for homeless women, and during the day the women all lived in tents outside the complex. While they waited for aid, they made do with simple supplies like water, rice, and small cooking pots. Before the quake, the sisters also taught religious education.

The DPW would like to remind residents that effective Feb. 2, the rates for disposal of construction and demolition materials at the Transfer Station will change.

Both Ryan and Darr have spent time at the Haitian convent. Darr lived there for several years during the political upheaval when the former dictator, known as Papa Doc, left. She said the political violence has now been replaced by criminal violence from street gangs. Both described the poverty that pervaded Haiti even before the recent natural disaster struck. Darr said that she ran a youth choir at the convent, and remembers one young boy who lost his eye to a knife attack. He lived with his parents, six brothers and sisters, and a grandfather –– and they all took turns sleeping in a single bed. “It’s the poorest of the poor,” said Ryan. “The last time I was down there, the garbage was piled in the street. I cannot imagine what it’s like now with the dead bodies.” Despite the poverty, both Ryan and Darr came away

from their visits with a positive impression of the Haitian people. “The Haitian people are resilient and hopeful,” said Ryan. “They are really, joyous, gentle people,” added Darr. Other members of the order who live in the United States are still looking for missing relatives in Haiti. For the contingent on the island, everyone is working together. The local bishop, whose wife was injured in the quake, is living in tents with everyone else –– the cathedral is totally destroyed. “They’re all just helping each other,” said Darr. “They’re living minute to minute.” Other religious organizations in Duxbury have been helping Haiti in their own way. At the First Parish Church, Rev. Catherine Cullen, shared the pulpit with a special speaker, Martha Thompson, the program manager for humanitarian crises at the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, the Sunday after the earthquake. “Martha worked all that week with Haitian UUSC partners, targeting groups that might be marginalized in relief efforts (especially children and HIV positive folks),” said Cullen. “When she came to join us that Sunday, she did indeed

move all of us. We collected $4,400 in a special collection for Haiti that morning!” For their part, Pilgrim Church has had a special offering on the past two Sundays that has raised around $9,000, according to Rev. Todd Vetter. That money will be sent to the United Church of Christ’s One Great Hour of Sharing offering for Haiti. The UCC has also had a long-standing relationship with the ecumenical National Spiritual Council of Churches in Haiti and the House of Hope orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Vetter said. The Journey Community of Faith has also had a relationship with a charity called The Haiti Mission, whose director, David Paulson, grew up in Duxbury. The community recently raised funds to install a solar-powered artesian well in a rural village and have contributed partial support for a pastor’s family there when the man perished in the quake along with his entire family, said Pastor David Woods, who went on two mission trips to Haiti with the charity. “I’ve seen first hand the commitment they have to the people of Haiti,” Woods said.

Camera club to spotlight travel photography
The Feb. 3 meeting of the Duxbury Camera Club will feature two Duxbury photographers, Kathy Dixon and Joan Collins, who will discuss their travel photography philosophy and techniques. This program is intended to inspire those who may be planning vacations and also to show that one does not need to be an expert to take memorable pictures. In lieu of a critique, members who wish to participate are asked to bring one matted or mounted photograph, taken while traveling, and be prepared to spend one minute explaining what they saw that motivated them to take the picture.

Garvey and Kravitz led the Alden students in a series of games that children in Uganda play, including a sack race. Participating in the game were Max Najarian, Eli Catanzarti and Ryan Tierney.

Uganda connection with Duxbury grows
They may be on opposite sides of the world, but the connection between Duxbury and Uganda is growing ever stronger as more residents donate their time and effort to help children in the impoverished African country. Duxbury High School juniors Kirsten Garvey and Leyla Kravitz first became interested in Africa when they joined the African Service Project, a club at the high school that grew out of Susan Sullivan’s class on the Holocaust and other genocides. This year, they were looking for an independent study and wanted to do something for the children of Uganda they’d heard so much about. “We were looking for a focus,” said Kravitz. They connected with Chris Blake and Dan Hall, two Duxbury residents who journeyed to Africa with a program called the Ugandan Rural Fund and helped raise money to build an orphanage dorm there. The head of the URF in America, John Mary Lugemwa, also came to speak at Pilgrim Church. The girls eventually decided to raise money to help Ugandan children attend a local school, Hope Integrated Academy. “This is a more personal thing,” said Garvey. The Academy, founded in 2008, has about 120 full-time students. The Ugandan school year runs from February to December. Students range in age from eighth to twelfth grade. Tuition for each child costs about $300, $100 for each of three trimesters. The money covers tuition, uniforms, books, lunch fee, school requirements, and othBy Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

DHS students Kirsten Garvey and Leyla Kravitz led an assembly at the Performing Arts Center last week. The two girls are trying to raise money for tuitions for a school in Uganda.

er basic supplies like pens and pencils, geometry sets, shoes, etc. for one year. Just getting to school can be a challenge for the students in the Masaka region of Uganda. The rate of AIDS is higher than in the country as a whole, and one in six households have experienced at least one death from the disease. As a result, there are many child-led households, where school-age children are responsible for taking care of other children. Garvey and Kravitz decided to target Alden students for the fundraising efforts. “Alden kids were a lot more excited about it,” said Garvey. They hoped that the plight of the Ugandan children would resonate with elementary students in Duxbury. “They learn the same subjects, play the same games,” said Kravitz. During an assembly last

week at the Performing Arts Center, Garvey and Kravitz showed the younger students slides of Uganda. They also played games, such as a traditional jump rope game called “bulada.” “They don’t have video games, this is what they have to play with,” said Garvey. The DHS students are hoping that each class at Alden will be able to sponsor a child at the Academy, and that there will be letters back and forth between the two countries. Collections will eventually be set up in the classrooms and in the lunchroom. Garvey and Kravitz hope that their work will make a difference. “We’re helping [the students] help themselves ... they love education,” said Kravitz.

is trying to capture the freshness of the ocean mollusk, it’s not quite as strong as first impressions might imply. “It dosen’t taste exactly like oysters,” said Island Creek’s Shore Gregory. “There are very subtle hints. It’s not like taking a drink of oyster.” “The roasted notes of the stout blend beautifully with the briny, mineral flavors of Island Creek Oysters, which were added to the brew moments after being harvested in Duxbury Bay,” proclaims a press release from Harpoon. “An addition of hops adds a hint of bitterness and aroma to balance the sweetness from the malt combination.” The brewer suggests, naturally, that the beer is best enjoyed with a plate of fresh Island Creek Oysters. Gregory said the brewing was the natural next step in a business relationship between

the two companies. Harpoon is a major sponsor of Island Creek’s annual oyster festival. “For us it’s really the opportunity to partner with a company that is like-minded and has similar values, and to bring something to the market that highlights that,” he said. The idea for the beer was germinated in a meeting around a year ago, Gregory said, when the oyster growers and representatives from Harpoon were, well, sharing a beer. “They brew really great beers and we’re fortunate to grow really great oysters,” he said. “It was kind of a logical step.” Although the nature of the beer may seem an odd pairing at first, it actually goes back to the Victorian era in Ireland. There are several other brewers in the United States that offer some variety of oyster stout. “It is exciting to work

with the people at Island Creek who, like us, are enthusiastic and passionate about the freshness and quality of their product,” said Harpoon’s Katie Tame. “This beer is not only a merging of two great New England offerings, it is also a merging of history. Stouts have long been paired with oysters, though seldom brewed with them. This is our contemporary twist on an age-old tradition. We hope beer and oyster lovers have as much fun drinking it as we had brewing it.” Gregory said he and some of his fellow growers were at the Harpoon Brewery last week, shucking oysters to go into the brewing kettles. Locally, the beer will be available at Foodie’s, Osborn’s and other local stores. Gregory said he’s working with restaurants that he hopes will offer it on draft. “It’s really great, we’re really excited,” he said. 35 Depot Street Duxbury Marketplace

This fundraiser is open to all, and 100 percent of the profits will go to the mission trip. We welcome the support of everyone in the community. All pans of lasagna are freshly prepared in time for

the Super Bowl, and can be picked up at Pilgrim Church on Feb. 6-7 or the pans can be delivered (within Duxbury only). They come in a choice of meatless or with meat, and with instructions for heating. And if this doesn’t fit into your Super Bowl plans, the pans come ready for freezing to enjoy at a later date! All orders must be received by Wednesday, Feb. 3 and can be dropped off at the Pilgrim Church Office or by calling 781-934-6591, ext. 101.

IN OTHER BUSINESS, SELECTMEN: • Granted an all alcohol liquor license to Bramblebush Eats, Ltd., owned by Larry Friedman, for the Sun Tavern. Selectmen had to issue a new license because they could not transfer the existing license for the Congress Street restaurant as it expired at the end of last year. Friedman hopes to open by mid-March. • Allowed Verizon to install a new utility pole at 237 Washington Street.

hire a police detail for the first month. The board and the police chief will then review the operation and decide whether the detail should be continued. Battista requested the liquor license for Thursday through Sunday nights from 5-9 p.m. for diners in the screened porch restaurant area. He said he would not serve alcohol to anyone who did not purchase food and that the last dinner seating is at 8 p.m. “There is no bar,” said Battista. “You need to have dinner with your drink.” Acting Duxbury Police Chief Stephen Doherty suggested the month of police details. “Introducing alcohol into a resort area changes the tenor of the area,” said Doherty. “You will get a different clientele.” He added that the last place that served alcohol near the beach had a “robust disturbance history.” He was talking about the Ranch House bar and dance hall on Canal Street Marshfield, which is currently closed and for sale. In 2005, then-police chief Mark DeLuca opposed a liquor license for Duxbury Beach Park. Doherty worried about how Battista planned to prevent patrons from taking alcohol on to the beach, which is illegal. Battista said he promised to make sure no alcohol ends up on the beach. “There is no alcohol allowed outside the building,” said Battista. “It’s served on the premises. You can’t bring it to the beach. We will actively police that.” Gurnet Road resident John Mann said granting a liquor license to Battista was like “closing the barn door after the horse has gone out,” because he claimed there has been an unofficial bring-your-ownbeer policy at Duxbury Beach Park during dinner for the past few years. “Mr. Battista has been in violation of allowing people to drink alcohol there,” said Mann. “There has long been a known BYOB policy.” Mann said he and the Duxbury Beach Residents Association, which represents 90 families, were opposed to the liquor license. “We don’t have the infrastructure on Gurnet Road to

• Granted a one-day liquor license to the Duxbury Art Association for their Winter Juried Show reception on Feb. 6 at the Art ComplexMarkella1_2x2.indd Museum. • Decided they may pull an article from the Town Meeting warrant that seeks to prohibit town employees from making charitable solicitations. Selectmen felt this could be better dealt with as an administrative policy and they instructed Town Manager Richard MacDonald to create one and get back to them. • Discussed deleting another article from the town meeting warrant. This one involves dissolving the Duxbury Youth Commission. Selectmen feel this committee is no longer necessary as the Student Union is now set up to handle youth affairs. However, neither selectmen or town meeting can get rid of the youth commission because was created by Town Meeting when it adopted a state law that allowed it to be set up. It would take an act of the state legislature to dissolve the youth commission and selectmen don’t want to pursue this at the state level.

meet the increase in traffic or deal with erratic drivers,” said Mann, adding that the cones placed on crosswalks on Gurnet Road are destroyed annually by beach traffic. Battista said that “98 percent” of people who come to dinner at his restaurant get there by coming over the Powder Point Bridge and not via Gurnet Road. He said he has never had any issues that required the police and that there were no OUIs on Gurnet Road in the years he had been serving dinner. Selectmen Chairman Betsy Sullivan said granting the license was a way for Battista to better control the consumption of alcohol at the property. Selectman Chris Donato said he favored the idea but could not support it unless the residents backed it. Mann said he approved of the police detail. Owners of the beach, the Duxbury Beach Reservation, Inc., voted to support Battista’s request for the liquor license. The Reservation contracts with Battista to run the bathhouse. The town’s Beach Committee also voted to support the liquor license. However, Harbormaster Don Beers was concerned about the security of the liquor at the restaurant. Battista said he lives above the bathhouse and that this should not be an issue. Selectmen agreed to review Battista’s liquor license

after the month of police details and said that if there were problems, they could modify or rescind the license. Battista said the weekend dinners will begin after Father’s Day in June.

The brass tacks of letters
e’d like to take a moment to remind readers of our letters to the editor policies. The Clipper welcomes letters to the editors on all subjects and from all perspectives. However, we do have some polices and guidelines, as follows: • All letters must include the letter writer’s full name (no initials please), address and phone number. Only the street name (not the number) will be printed, and the phone number is for verification purposes only. Unsigned or anonymous letters will not be considered.

‘The Blue Bag Saga’



live out in West Duxbury. A horse and a wagon is luxury. No fumes as I pass Bessie doesn’t need gas But I might as well live in Sudbury.

Blue bags for trash now required Town regs. and procedures inspired Only four stores supply These bags I must buy, I have suggestions on this, but I’m tired. – C. Rogerson

• Letters should be no more than 350 words. Longer pieces (max. 600 words) may be considered as op/ed pieces at the editor’s discretion, but length may delay publication. All letters may be edited for clarity and length. • While all subjects are welcome, priority will be given to letters about local issues. • Disparaging letters about local businesses will not be printed. • Disparaging letters about private citizens will not be considered.

• Thank you letters will be considered if brief. Letters that are merely long lists of sponsors are considered advertising and will not be printed. • Letters previously printed in another publication –– print or Web –– will not be considered.

• Political letters will not be printed in the two weeks prior to local elections. The Clipper considers a “local election” to be town elections (selectmen, Planning Board, etc.) up to state representative and state senator. Letters about state-wide (U.S. Senator, governor, etc.) or national races may be considered at any time but will be given a lower priority in accordance with our other policies.

• There is no explicit rule prohibiting the same person from submitting a letter in successive weeks, however, if space is at a premium repeat writers –– especially if their letter is about the same subject –– may not be printed. • All of our letters may be republished to the Web. Timely letters that do not make the paper for space reasons may be printed on the Web only. • Publication of all letters is at the editor’s discretion.

–– J. Graeber

Clipper election policy
The local election season is in full swing. Here’s a reminded of the Clipper’s policy for elections: The Clipper invites candidates for public office to submit an announcement of your candidacy with a photo. Entries should be 400 words or less and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the election. Other forms of publicity should be handled through the Clipper election supplement or as advertisements. Details on the supplement and the Clipper’s annual election forum will be mailed to all candidates after the filing deadline. Questions?

fter reading the articles about the blue trash bag decision, I feel that perhaps we are ready for representative government for different parts of town. Duxbury is spread over 28 square miles, and dictating that residents will drive to Hall’s Corner or thereabout is just plain wrong. It appears that this decision is based on promoting the business of a few (four to be exact) while negatively impacting the majority. Many residents do not go to Hall’s Corner to shop for many reasons. Convenience is one of those reasons. Forcing people to these stores is only going to engender anger, (which it always has) and a refusal to shop at the stores at all. And it will encourage more people to hire the trash hauling companies, which creates barrels rolling though the streets, more trucks on the roads impacting traffic flow and most importantly destruction of the recycling program which makes money for the town. Yet, this decision is voted for the benefit of four businesses. Something is wrong with this picture. Since this news appeared in the local papers, I have had people clearly express to me that they will not frequent these stores at all if this decision stands. No doubt a trash hauler will be employed vs. forced shopping in Duxbury at four stores. The president of the Business Association may find this a wonderful decision, however, I believe this decision will only serve to undermine the businesses of the community, because most people don’t take kindly to being told where to

Bag decision ‘just plain wrong’ ——————



spend their money and where they will shop. This is not a winning solution at all, it is detrimental to the stores. Our community has nearly 1,800 families making less than $75,000 a year, and this additional cost for these families is unnecessary and uncalled for. We all are busy and don’t need to make special trips to buy bags for rubbish when they are now conveniently located at Supermarkets in both Marshfield and Kingston, as was originally promised by the town. This p r o gram has worked well as it was originally set up to do, and now with this decision you have created anger, determination not to purchase anything in these stores other than bags. It is never a good idea to have a committee focus on one problem without considering the impact of solving that problem on the larger community. Any suggestion should have been followed by lengthy discussion with the public, as is usually done with thorough

hearings and forethought. Why was this done without that approach? The head of the DPW was absolutely correct in his assessment that this program was always billed as being convenient to the residents, yet no one listened to him and he is in charge of the program. While we all want business to survive in Duxbury, no one should be issued an edict that states you will shop in these four stores. This was a decision made in haste without thorough vetting before voting. Please change your decision back to the original decision of 2008 and find other ways to help the businesses in Duxbury and not burden the families of Duxbury. This certainly isn’t a winning strategy! Diane Bartlett Franklin Streer

Burning season begins
s you may know burning season has begun. The season runs until May 1. I recommend you get your burning done early as conditions may change and force us to cancel burning due to dry weather conditions. As always, please be sure to have burning done in a safe manner. The permit you receive has guidelines. Annually we have a few fires that get out of control. Property gets damaged and people get hurt. Another consideration is what you are burning and how that effects your health and atmosphere. Open burning might be the first thing that comes to your mind when getting ready for Spring. While it is still allowed in most Massachusetts towns and cities, open burning has

its distinct disadvantages. The combustion process releases large amounts of carbon dioxide, other gases, and solid substances directly into the air for people to breathe. My research shows that Massachusetts has one of the highest rates of asthma. And, of course, disposal of materials is never as good for the environment as using them again in a different form. Natural debris can be chipped or composted into landscaping material. There are times when open burning is the best or only option. Even then, there are limits on what can be burned and when, as well as important public health and safety requirements. There are no circumstances under which it is legal to burn grass, hay, leaves, stumps or tires or building debris. They simply do not burn as “cleanly” as materials that

may legally be burned. All of them produce acrid smoke that causes nuisance conditions that threatens people’s health. When tires are burned, they produce noxious gases and petroleum residue, both of which can be harmful to people and the environment. Clean air according to the E.P.A. contains less than fifteen micrograms of fine particles per cubic meter. Five times that amount will set off a smoke detector. Three hundred times as much, roughly what an open fire produces, will kill you. Wood smoke, as sweet as it smells, sets off a caustic swirl of chemical agents, including benzene, butadiene, styrene, formaldehyde, dioxin and methylene chloride. Please burn safely and efficiently and remember your neighbors.

good drama/bad drama —————————
his past Friday and Saturday the DMS Drama Club presented the “Princess Plays.” Congratulations to all the students who participated for a job well done. The plays were really funny and the kids all looked like they had a great time on stage. Months of work and rehearsal go into preparing for the annual play, and the kids should be complimented for their work and commitment. Credit and praise should go to anyone who can get up on stage and perform in front of an audience. Congratulations also to Ms. Lewin who ran the Drama


Duxbury’s best kept secret? You betcha!
just finished reading an opinion sent in titled “the best kept secret.” The writer supplied us with some facts about how the town only spends a fraction of what other towns spend to educate students on a per capita basis. The article in the Clipper’s Jan. 20 edition was revealing, but I didn’t see where the writer included where this information was garnered from. [Editor’s note, it was the DOE Web site. That information was removed from the letter for space reasons.] What I do see is that the writer consistently submits a lament about the Duxbury school system to the opinion section. This leads me to believe that everything the school system does is perused and scrutinized, although I suspect with a jaundiced eye. Considering that, I’m inclined to believe the facts stated are accurate, but lacking germane information. The information made me feel good about how our tax dollars are being spent. Her facts revealed that our education system here in Duxbury spends less per pupil than 273 other school districts in the state. Can you imagine that Duxbury is not in the top 10 of any statistic when it comes to our school system? I wonder where the problem is. I guess

Club for the first time this year and Mr. Corbin and his back stage crew. My son, Ian McCourt (a freshman at DHS), student directed the plays. On Saturday, he brought his video camera to the shows to film behind the scenes. While cleaning up after the last show on Saturday, he discovered the camera was missing. An hour long search of the stage, surrounding school areas and the classrooms used for dressing rooms turned up nothing. Ian bought the Sony Handycam with money he saved from gifts and babysit-

ting. He realizes he should not have left the camera unattended, but this is a hard lesson learned after having donated four months of his time to help with the production. If anyone has any information about his camera, please contact Ms. Shannon, DMS vice principal. We are hopeful someone accidentally cleaned it up with their belongings and will turn it in. We don’t want anyone to get in trouble, we just want the camera returned. Suzanne McCourt Tinkers Ledge Road


I’m guilty of not staying current with what other towns are spending; I’m just interested in the results in my town. From my standpoint, I see that our students are very successful with MCAS, over 90 percent of graduates go on to higher education in colleges of their choice. The sports program in its entirety is competitive and very successful. Each week the Clipper is full of stories of the many extra curricula activities provided to our students. I also notice the numerous success stories of our past graduates. I submit that the school system is working as it was designed to do and kudos to the folks down at Town Hall and the School Committee for keeping watch over our tax rate. Another interesting factoid that the writer brought forward was that the system doesn’t spend enough on professional development for teachers and staff. Coming from a lengthy tenure as a high school teacher and administrator, I know that teachers are required by their contract and by the state to meet the professional development mandates. Most teachers satisfy these requirements by attending school sponsored professional development programs provided by the school system and by taking degree

courses. I know that some of the course work costs are reimbursed by contract, but not all. I suggest that there is a correlation between the number of degrees our teachers are pursuing and the low dollar amount spent on professional development. I also suggest that our teachers have an over abundance of degrees, probably more than in most districts. It should also be noted as a supporting fact that teacher compensation is based on longevity and education. The writer also goes on to claim that there are vernal pools on the roofs of our schools. I suspect that this research is faulty. I agree that most schools in the state are in need of update, even ours. I have confidence in our current management team to do what’s best for the infrastructure and when that goes away, I’ll vote for others. The only thing that “The Best Kept Secret” article has done is increase the traffic flow to our Town Hall and our schools. Two hundred seventy three school systems are going to send teams to see how we are able to produce a top notch product with the money we spend. Richard Brennen Myrtle Street

here is a famous story about two men from the same country. One is a religious scholar and the other is a teacher. The scholar asks “What can I do to get eternal life?” The teacher answers, “Love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” The scholar asks “Who is my neighbor?” And the teacher tells him a short story about a man from their country who went on a trip and was robbed. Thieves beat him, took his clothes, stole everything he had, and left him to die. Soon after, a religious leader from their country walked by, saw the victim and didn’t want to get involved, so he crossed the road and kept walking. Later a fellow countryman with a good job found the man who LighTs of faiTh had been robbed and he too walked by. Lastly, a man from a different country found the victim and even though he was a foreigner, he had compassion on him. He gave the man a ride to an inn, bandaged his wounds, fed him, paid for the man’s room, and paid the owner something extra to look after him. After telling this, the teacher asks the scholar “Which of the three travelers acted like a neighbor to the man who was robbed?” The scholar wisely answered “The man who showed mercy to him.” I had an opportunity to show mercy to a stranger one summer when I had an internship in Boston. A friend and I were walking along the Charles River when we came upon a man who was bleeding badly. I tore a shirt into bandages while my friend called 911. The man asked why I was helping him. I told him that even though we had never met, I felt he was my neighbor. I said that he could see this as proof that God loved him and had provided me to care for him just when he needed someone‘s help. After the paramedics put him in the ambulance they told us that we saved the man’s life. That was the only opportunity I’ve ever had to be a neighbor like the one in the teacher’s story. But right now, there are millions of people that need us all to be good neighbors. Whether they live in Haiti and are victims of an earthquake, or live in some other part of the world and are victims of some form of social, political, or economic injustice, they can all use a good neighbor. If you are able to make a donation to meet needs in Haiti or Africa, please do it. If you can help meet the needs of families in Duxbury, please do so through the Interfaith Council. If you can volunteer time, make a commitment and do it. And if none of those is an option you can still be a good influence. Even if you can’t give dollars or time, you can still be a good neighbor by praying and affirming that even in the face of depravation and fear, a divine power is in operation that can alleviate suffering and provide comfort in a crisis. Often my best prayer is to think back on a time when my needs were unexpectedly or miraculously met and affirm that the same source of goodness that met my need can meet anyone’s need. I often think of this quote in my prayer for others. “Divine Love always has met, and always will meet every human need.” – Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy. Whether your are a scholar, teacher or fellow citizen, the world needs you to be a good neighbor. This column is devoted to perspectives and ideas on spiritual subjects from members of the Duxbury Interfaith Council. The ideas expressed here reflect the views of the individual authors and not necessarily the Council as a whole.

Lady Dragons vault into first
Donovan’s two third-period goals beat Barnstable
The Duxbury girls’ hockey team (10-1-1) atoned for the one blemish on its record on Saturday afternoon at The Bog, when it came back from a 2-1 deficit in the third period to defeat Barnstable, 3-2.

The victory gives the Lady Dragons a half-game lead over the Red Raiders in the battle for the top spot in the southern division of the SEMGHL. Barnstable is the only team to have defeated Duxbury and they did it in the second game of the season on the Cape, 2-1.

STORMING THE NET: Duxbury’s Briana Connolly tries to jam the puck past Barnstable goaltender Ali Photos by Mike Halloran Talerman during Saturday’s 3-2 win.

Saturday night’s game closely resembled the December contest for most of the first two periods, but only after the

KEEP AWAY: Duxbury’s Molly O’Sullivan moves the puck around a Barnstable defender.

Red Raiders took a 1-0 lead 18 seconds into the game on a sky-high shot from defenseman Shannon Cleary that landed in front of Duxbury goaltender Julia Hannon and was deflected past the senior netminder for a 1-0 lead. While Duxbury seemed to be carrying the action, they also appeared to be putting themselves in a hole by going to the penalty box three times in the final seven minutes of the period. Knowing that a win would vault them into first place, Duxbury came out for the second period and tied the game less than two minutes into the action when freshman Hannah Murphy made it 1-1 when she poked home a loose puck from a scramble in front. Energized by the goal, Duxbury picked up the pace,

but once again ended up in the penalty box with 8:48 to go in the middle period. The call seemed to slow the Lady Dragons’ cause, as Barnstable made one of its few rushes two minutes later. Jessica Penney broke in from the right wing and barely beat Hannon for the go-ahead goal with 6:32 to go. Barnstable goalie Ali Talerman was immense in net, as her standup style frustrated the Duxbury offense on every rush, including one with 3:37 on the clock that resulted in an Olivia McCarthy shot that deflected off a defenseman and found its way right to the Barnstable netminder. The tide was now clearly in Duxbury’s favor, as Molly O’Sullivan, Kaitlin Sullivan, and Mary Donovan were

ate Cameron’s voice rang out, and her face lit up the room. She sang a brilliant descant, and captured the senses of joy and triumph – freedom – that bubbled up from the music, from her heart. She was gone before I could talk to her. She sang at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day service at the High Street Methodist Church, the Duxbury Interfaith Council and No Place for Hate Committee service I wrote about

last week, co-hosted by the High Street Church and the Duxbury Church of Christ (Scientist). I spoke to Duxbury High School Chamber Singers Director James Donovan after the service. Their songs, “Freedom is Coming,”


and a splendid medley, “The Storm is Passing Over,” were selected from songs collected in South Africa by Swedish composer Anders Nyberg. The medley included the song Siyahamba, a Zulu song (according to Wikipedia) that means “We are marching,” translated from Afrikaans by Mkize Thabo. Nyberg recorded Siyahamba at a girls’ school in Applesbosch, Natal. The song was originally composed (it is said) circa 1950 by Andries van Tonder, in Afrikaans, the language that

Singing alone together
emerged from the Dutch settlers (the Boers) in wide swathes of South Africa and Namibia. You may remember the Boer Wars, fought by the British at turn of the last century to suppress the Boers, where the term “concentration camp” was first used. Winston Churchill’s early career as a soldier and war correspondent included this war, as did the early career of Jan Christian Smuts, Boer guerrilla and later British General and Prime Minister of South Africa, and even later, founder of holistic theory (from his observations of the inextricably interconnected web of the natural world). About 26,000 Boer women and children perished in these camps from starvation and disease. They were originally set up as refugee camps, but later used by the British Commander Lord Kitchener as part of a “scorched earth” policy to break the will of the Boer guerrilla fighters. They got the idea, it would seem, from the United States, which used similar tactics to control Cherokee and other Native American groups (from the 1830s onward), in Cuba (1868-1878), and in the Philippines (1898-1901). In other words, the descendants of Boer South Africans, where “apartheid” is an Afrikaans word, have as much moral right to composing songs of freedom and triumph as the Zulus who translated the song and love it just as well. Back here in Duxbury, the DHS Chamber Singers sang beautifully. They performed a cappella (with no instrumental accompaniment), and their pitch, tone, and balance were flawless. For this performance, Mr. Donovan arranged the ensemble with the boys lined up in front. Thus, their base and tenor lines carried easily to the audience, joined (but not silenced) by the treble voices over their shoulders. It’s harder this way. “The higher voices rely on the basses behind them to help keep them in pitch,” Mr. Donovan explained. But I heard no drift at all, and even the chords with sudden attacks and key changes sparkled. Most of all, the group’s spirit shone out over their audience. They brought youthful force to the claims, if you will, of their songs: that freedom is possible and victory is glorious in a cause that lifts people from oppression, especially when the songs sing with the voice of those oppressed. Which brings me back to Kate Cameron. Her story, I suspect, may be very different from that of Zulu girls caught under apartheid in Natal, South Africa, but her singing drew from all her imagination and musical experience. Gospel, African-American, or European-American like her, Kate’s music came from her heart. Her descant – that musical celebration that soared above – was all improvised. Note a note was written in Nyberg’s score. It was all Kate.

buzzing the Barnstable end, keeping the puck deep, and rarely allowing it to cross the blue line. The pressure paid off, as the Lady Dragons went on the power-play, only to see their most dangerous shot sail through a screen and hit Talerman in the skate as the period ended. There was no looking back for the Lady Dragons with 15 minutes to play, as a loss would pretty much concede the league title to Barnstable. “When a team has a lead you know they are going to play it close to the vest and I knew we just had to keep cycling the puck and moving around in the offensive zone if we were going to score,” said Weiler. Out hustling the Red Raiders for most of the first five minutes, the Lady Dragons got their just reward when Mary Donovan picked up a loose puck to the left of Talerman and spun around to fire a shot between her legs that tied the game at 2-2 with 10:01 remaining.

staff could sense they were in trouble and called a timeout with 8:09 showing on the clock. Less than two minutes later Donovan was at it again, as she took a pass from freshman Lily Connolly to beat Talerman for what proved to be the winning goal. Despite dominating play in the final period, the Lady Dragons weren’t home free yet, as the Red Raiders broke out of their zone with less than 15 seconds remaining, only to have Abby Woods rattle a shot off the post with nine seconds to go that squelched their chance at a tie. “I’m so proud of these girls,” said Coach Friend Weiler. “We lost to this team, 2-1, the first time around and our kids dug down deep, played hard, and they communicated. They really worked for this one and got everything they deserved.” On Wednesday night the Lady Dragons go head-to-head with Division 1 foe Hingham at 8 p.m. at the South Shore Recreation Center in Hingham.

Dragons win fifth straight
The week lay-off had the Dragons looking a bit rusty on Friday night in Duxbury. However, when the buzzer sounded, the Dragons walked off the court with their fifth straight win in a 60-47 win over Middleboro, raising their record to 8-3.

Coming off a 25-point win against Hanover, Duxbury looked like it would duplicate that feat against the Sachems,

as they ran out to a 23-14 firstquarter lead. Middleboro attacked the Dragons early with a series of three-pointers and had the game tied at 6-6 before a 7-0 Duxbury run put the Dragons ahead for good. Senior Mike Sullivan had a big first quarter with 10 points, as he led his team to a nine-point lead. Middleboro is normally an automatic win for the Dragons, and it looked like it would be another one, as Coach Gordon Cushing went deep into his bench in the second quarter with senior Greg O’Neal, junior Connor Kindregan, and

senior Jon Frye aiding senior captain Brian Grossman for a 36-20 halftime lead. Duxbury came out for the third quarter and seemed to have everything under control at 40-24. Nevertheless, Middleboro began to chip away, as a 7-0 Sachem run made it 40-31 with two minutes left in the quarter.

chems kept them in the game, as a three-pointer by Andrew Card and three points from senior captain Zach Maddigan had the visitors within striking distance at 43-37 with eight minutes left in the game. Middleboro wouldn’t go away, as three-pointers by Luke and Jake Szulak cut the lead to 47-44 with five minutes remaining, and Card had the deficit down to a point at 47-46 with 4:10 to go. Free throws by senior Aaron Kramer (3) and Grossman put the lead back up to five

(51-46), forcing Middleboro Coach Andy Dizel to call a timeout. Whatever strategy Dizel called for backfired, as Grossman scored eight points in the final two minutes to put the game away. Grossman’s last minute surge was half of his teamhigh 16 points, while Sullivan finished with 13. Curtis Owen and Billy Curley chipped in with eight apiece. On Friday night the boys will tangle with Pembroke at 6:30 p.m. in Duxbury.

The Duxbury wrestling team had another tough weekend on the road, dropping two close league matches to Hingham and Hanover.
Duxbury Hingham

Weekend woes continue for wrestlers
Hingham’s Noah Sneath. While neither grappler could get a takedown in the first period, Genereux chose bottom to start the second and earned a one-point escape to go ahead 1-0. The score would remain 1-0 heading into the third period, but Genereux (15-4 on the season with 8 pins) proved to be too tough on top, pinning Sneath halfway through the third period and tying the match at 6-6. The Dragons would go up 12-6 when senior captain Tim Donoghue made quick work of Hingham’s Tyler Mason in the 119 lbs. weight class, pinning him early in the first period. Donoghue sports a 16-5 record with a team-leading nine pins. Next up for Duxbury was senior captain Robert Kates (125), who faced off against Hingham’s Jeff Ditullio. Kates worked hard to get the first takedown, and extended his lead to 4-0 heading into the third period. Ditullio chose bottom, and got a 2-point reversal, cutting the lead in half. In a stunning turn of events, the Hingham wrestler had Kates in a near fall, giving him three back points. Ditullio went on to win the match with a 6-4 decision. The come-from-behind victory closed the gap to 12-9, and gave the Harbormen the momentum heading into the 130 lbs. match-up. However, Duxbury sophomore Mikkel Linskey silenced the Hingham bench when he pinned Nathan Morse after taking a 5-1 lead into the second period. With the Duxbury lead now 18-9, junior Jamie Auer took the mat in the 135 lbs. weight class against Hingham junior Max Goldstein. Auer got the first takedown and worked for the arm bar to put Goldstein on his back. However, the near fall was disallowed by the referee, who said that the Hingham grappler was out of bounds. The hometown call gave the Hingham junior life and a reversal, but Auer would later get an escape and a reversal of his own to extend his lead to 6-2. With time running out in the match, Auer got a warning for stalling and inexplicably rolled to his hip from the top position. Goldstein took full advantage of the rookie mistake, pinning the Duxbury junior with two seconds left in the match. The stunning loss and turn of events would have taken the wind out of Duxbury’s sails if it wasn’t for junior Pat Donovan, who took it to Hingham senior captain Keith Caruso by pinning him after taking a 6-0 lead into the third period. Unfortunately for the visitors, Duxbury had to take a forfeit in the 145 lbs. weight class, and things went from bad to worse in the 152 lbs. contest when senior Conor

The Dragons got off to a tough start in the 103 lbs. contest when Hingham’s star wrestler, Mike Mui (second in MA), took the mat against freshman Nick Kates. Mui used his signature ankle-pick takedown to go up 2-0, and quickly worked a cradle to a pin, giving the hosts an early 6-0 lead. Duxbury answered in the 112 lbs. match-up between freshman Jake Genereux and

Clark took the mat against Hingham senior captain Nolan Connors. The Hingham captain dominated the match from the start, but as long as Clark could avoid the pin it would be a “win” for Duxbury. It appeared that Connors was on his way to a 14-5 major decision when disaster struck again, and Hingham would earn another last second pin. With Hingham leading, 27-24, Duxbury senior captain John McGeady stopped the bleeding in his 160 lbs. matchup with Hingham’s Tim Wood. McGeady wasted little time taking the Hingham grappler to the mat, and subsequently earned a critical pin for the Dragons, giving the visitors a 30-27 lead. Duxbury sophomore Bobby Boyle made his varsity debut at 171 lbs. when he took the mat against Brandon Kim.

It was an auspicious start for Kim, who got the first takedown and had the underclassman in an early cradle. Boyle refused to give up and earned his first points with a reversal while down 7-0 in the second period. With Kim on bottom to start the third period, Boyle did everything but pin Kim, who hung on for the victory. With the match now tied at 30-30, Duxbury answered in the 189 lbs. match-up between Alec McKenzie and Hingham’s Joe Centurelli. McKenzie has really come into his own this season, winning by pin after taking a 2-0 lead into the second period. McKenzie’s pin gave Duxbury a 3630 lead with two matches to go. Unfortunately for the visitors, head coach Kyle McCarthy had a tough decision to make. Without a heavyweight

for the match, McCarthy opted not to send freshman Owen Grey out at 215 lbs. against

Hingham’s Griffin Veldran. Instead, McCarthy liked Grey’s chances against Hing-

ham heavyweight Matt Constantine. The Duxbury forfeit meant that the match would

come down to the heavyweight contest with the size advantage clearly in Hingham’s corner. The inexperienced Duxbury freshman worked hard not to give up a first period takedown. Unfortunately, Grey started the second period on bottom, and Constantine was able to turn him, giving Hingham the pin and a 42-36 see-saw win. Duxbury dropped their second match 39-34 to Hanover in similar fashion. Earning pins for Duxbury were Jake Genereux (112 lbs.), Tim Donoghue (119 lbs.), and Jamie Auer (135 lbs.). Nick Kates (103 lbs.) earned a major decision, while Conor Clark (152 lbs.) and John McGeady (160 lbs.) won by decision. The Duxbury wrestling team looks to get back on track in league play when it hosts North Quincy on Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

Hingham hockey too much for Dragons
It sure looked promising when Duxbury (5-7-1) jumped out to a 1-0 lead over Hingham on Saturday night at The Bog. However, just two minutes later the Harbormen were back in the game and worked their way to a 5-2 win over the Dragons.

NOSE DIVE: Duxbury goaltender Derek Williams tries to corral a loose puck during Saturday night’s 5-2 loss to Hingham.

Coming into the game at 11-1-1, their only loss being to Catholic Memorial, the Harbormen proved to be a notch above the Dragons in every phase of their game. Moving the puck at will on the power play and keeping the Dragons from advancing the puck effectively from their defensive end, Hingham eventually wore Duxbury down before Tim Driscoll’s emptynet goal pinned the hosts with their sixth loss in their last seven games. It was a big night for the junior forward, as he pumped in four goals in leading the Harbormen to their 12th win of the season. With both teams a man down in the first two minutes, senior Pat Charland got the Duxbury crowd warmed up when he took a pass on the left wing from sophomore Connor Doyle and ripped off a shot to the upper right corner to beat Hingham goalie Kevin Granatino. Being behind didn’t sit well with the Harbormen, as they took less than two minutes to tie the game at 1-1 on the first of Driscoll’s goals: an unmolested shot as he walked through the slot and went in alone on sophomore goalie

Derek Williams. Williams was now on notice, as he rose to the occasion twice in the next several minutes with a sprawling save on the power play and a bouncing puck that almost eluded him. With 4:39 to go in the period, the Duxbury defense misfired on a clearing shot, allowing Driscoll to walk in from the right side and blast a shot past Williams for a 2-1 lead. Momentum was now clearly on Hingham’s side, as they dominated play the rest of the period. Things looked good when the Dragons went on the power play just two minutes into the second period with a strong power-play effort from Doyle, Charland, and Bryan Barry. Unfortunately, Granatino was up to the task and kept Duxbury off the board. The Dragons were still in the game until 4:06 remained in the second period when Driscoll notched his hat trick on a beautiful move out of the corner, lifting his shot up and under the crossbar for a 3-1 lead. The third period started with Williams robbing Tim Jones on a break-away and the Dragons going on the powerplay: both events triggering

some Duxbury momentum. Just 1:34 later defense-

man Mitch Barrington had the crowd on its feet when he buried a shot into the top right corner past Granatino to cut the deficit to 3-2 with visions of a tie in view. The euphoria was shortlived when the Harbormen went on the power play with 6:02 to go in the game. Senior captain Eric Sherman was perfectly positioned outside the crease, knocking home the rebound of a shot from the point for a comfortable 4-2 lead with 4:52 to go. Driscoll’s final goal of the night into an empty net with 22 seconds on the clock iced the game for Hingham.

“There isn’t a huge dropoff from forward #1 to forward #12 on that team,” said Duxbury Coach John Blake. “They keep sending them over the boards and they just keep coming at you. We knew we were going to get the pressure and we tried to move the puck to the weak side as quick as we could. I thought our guys battled and I was happy with the effort today. Hopefully we can continue that as we move forward.” On Wednesday night the team will travel to Bridgewater to take on Bridgewater-Raynham at 8 p.m.

A pair of three-pointers by ND’s Kate McCarthy had the Cougars out to a quick 6-0 lead. However, junior captain Devon Tsinzo and freshman forward Michela North matched McCarthy’s marksmanship to tie the game at 6-6. The Lady Dragons were staying close and actually went ahead when junior captain Maggie Norton scored for an 11-10 lead, prompting Notre Dame Coach Mike Barrett to put on the press and turn the game around. What had begun to look like a turning point in the young Dragons’ season suddenly became a disaster as the Cougars smothered the Duxbury offense and kept them from making any serious ad-

with six-foot senior captain Lauren McClelland and senior captain Kara Stefaniak pouring in six points each. The hosts opened the second half with eight straight points for a 37-12 lead, and were finally cooled off by sophomore Shannon McLaughlin, who scored six points before the third quarter ended with a 41-20 Notre Dame lead. Coach Mark Dunn went to his bench in the fourth quarter, as ND substituted freely, and watched as senior Maggie Dunn, junior Jenna Cusick, and junior Lauren Grady got on the scoreboard in the 53-28 loss to the Cougars, who had just beaten top-ranked Andover earlier in the week. The girls will travel to Pembroke on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. to take on the Titans.

Fourth Friday Film Series
The Duxbury Free Library’s next film in the Fourth Friday Film series, “Volver,” directed by Pedro Almodóvar will screen on Friday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Merry Room, library lower level. Led by James Mandrell, library trustee and professor of film at Brandeis University, the series is designed for the over-18 crowd and meets every fourth Friday.

Film screenings are preceded and followed by lively discussion led by Prof. Mandrell. Admission is free and refreshments are available. For further information, 781-934-2721 x100 or go to duxburyfreelibrary.org. Feb. 26: Volver (Spain 2006) dir. Pedro Almodóvar. 121 mins. Rated R. Anyone with questions about Pené-

lope Cruz’s talent as an actor will have all the answers after watching this film. Almodóvar treads familiar ground and works with some of his favorite actresses—including Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, and Chus Lampreave—to create a film of genuine emotional resonance. March 26: Songcatcher (USA 2000) dir. Maggie

Greenwald. 109 mins. PG-13. Although somewhat anachronistic, the music and Janet McTeer’s pitch-perfect performance more than make up for whatever is less than apt for the period. With Pat Carrol and Aidan Quinn, as well as a surprisingly affecting Emmy Rossum in her first feature film. April 23: Ma vie en rose / My Life in Pink (France 1997)

dir. Alain Berliner 88 mins. Rated R. A family with a secret that it tries desperately to keep under wraps. Eventually, everything comes out—doesn’t it always?—and everyone has to make a choice about what is important to them and why. A subtle and sweet film with 13year-old Georges Du Fresne in a remarkable debut performance.
