In federal budget

Boosts for
conservation
By Tim Abbott

The federal budget passed
by Congress in December and
signed into law the week before
Christmas by President Obama
contains significant conservation tax incentives and increased
funding for important land
protection and renewable energy
programs.
“The spending package we
passed last month was about as
big a win for Connecticut land
conservation as we can get,” said
Sen. Chris Murphy (D). “As part
of the deal, we permanently extended a critical tax incentive that
encourages people to preserve
and protect their land from overdevelopment, and we secured
$10 million — more than three
times the amount we got last
year — for the conservation of
our highlands.
“We also renewed the chronically underfunded Land and
Water Conservation Fund for
three years, giving the program
some certainty as we make new
investments to safeguard our
nation’s irreplaceable natural
resources.”
Incentives to donate
The new budget extended or
made permanent more than 50
tax incentives, including several
incentives for charitable giving.
Among these is the enhanced tax
incentive for donated conser-

vation easements that was first
enacted as a temporary provision
in 2006 and is now permanent.
Such easements are private,
voluntary agreements, typically
between private landowners and
land trusts that permanently
limit the uses of these properties
in order to protect their conservation values. Before becoming a
permanent part of the tax code,
this incentive was subject to
regular renewal and it sometimes

its leaves had long ago mushed

But it was a large tree, easily 3

The fee for not having health

two different ways: as a percentage of household income

Coincidentally I came across
an article by Rebecca Heisman in
the winter 2015 issue of Northern
Woodlands in which she began
to answer my question based on
a U.S. Forest Service and University of Minnesota survey of
thousands of fallen trees. They
tallied how long it takes 36 tree
species to break down.
This scholarly study/computer model yielded estimates
of what they call “range of
residence,” that is, how long it

will take a tree to completely
decompose.
“Conifer species,” Heisman
reported,“range from 57 to 124
years, while hardwood species
are typically around on the
forest floor for 46 to 71 years.
Warmer, more humid environments promote faster decay
than cooler, drier climates.”
Of course, a hung-up tree
will take longer to decompose
than branches or shorter logs
lying on the forest floor will.
On the other hand, not far
away stands the remnants of

at the effects of climate change.
I was just speculating on how
much more my prone tree
would add to the environment
the longer it took to rot. It will
provide habitat. It will provide
a home for moss and lichen and
microorganisms. It will provide
food for grubs. It will provide a

a roost for birds and a scouting
site for chipmunks.
Its useful life goes on.

Before the Kardashians,
there was the Gibson Girl
By Patrick L. Sullivan

SALISBURY — It would be
difficult to pick a universally acknowledged standard for female
beauty in today’s United States,
what with twerkers and tattoos
all competing for the shrinking
American attention span.
But illustrator Charles Dana
Gibson’s “Gibson Girl” fit the
bill for the better part of two
decades, from 1898 to the end
of World War I.
Tom Hayes explained the
rise in public esteem of the
Gibson Girl in a talk at Salisbury
Town Hall on Saturday, Jan. 9.
(The talk was sponsored by the
Salisbury Association Historical
Society and the Scoville Memorial Library.)
The Gibson Girl represented
the new wealth of the Gilded Age
and predated Hollywood.
She was also a wholly imaginary celebrity — although
clearly modeled after Gibson’s
wife, the irrepressible Irene
Langhorne, the daughter of
Virginia railroad and tobacco
baron Chiswell Langhorne.
Gibson was born in Roxbury, Mass., in 1867. In 1875,
the family moved to Flushing,
N.Y. Gibson’s father was in the
habit of illustrating his letters,
and young Gibson showed early
talent.
Gibson’s professional career
began in 1886, when he sold a
drawing to Life magazine for $4.
“Pen and ink was his forte,”
said Hayes. Printing technology
had progressed to the point
where pen-and-ink drawings
could be quickly and efficiently
reproduced, and magazines
proliferated.
Gibson was very successful,
“drawing anything or anybody”
for a wide variety of publications, including Scribner’s,
the Century and Harper’s.
He provided illustrations for
books, too.
And he prospered, earning
the equivalent of $100,000 in
2015 dollars — enough to maintain a studio in New York City
and to finance a trip to Paris to
study painting.

In the late 1880s Life magazine
featured a gently satirical series
from Gibson, called “Delicious
Moments,” for which Gibson
also wrote the captions.
By the 1890s, his style had
changed, becoming less dense
and dark. Hayes said it was because Gibson learned to use his
shoulders and elbows, creating
long strokes.
The public responded positively, and Gibson tripled his
income.
At age 26, he was sitting pretty
— except for one thing.
Enter Irene Langhorne.
Gibson met her at Delmonico’s restaurant in 1894. Hayes
said she was a true Southern
belle, with legions of discarded
beaus in her wake.
Gibson, on the other hand,
was “shy, modest and humble.”
The Langhorne family was
intimidating, too. Irene had four
sisters, all considered beautiful.
(One of them became the first
female Member of Parliament
in the United Kingdom.)
Hayes said the Langhorne
girls had all been “groomed by
their parents for wealth and
society,” although the effort was
not always successful.
The couple married in Richmond in 1895, and Irene “became Dana’s muse as an artist.”
Gibson had created a predecessor to the Gibson Girl, called
the American Girl.
“The American Girl was cold,”
Hayes said, speculating that the
artist’s status as shy, diffident
bachelor meant he wasn’t very
familiar with the ways of young
women.
But as Gibson’s “admiration,
devotion and love” for Irene
developed, “for the first time he
began to draw with feeling.”

Gibson never publicly acknowledged the influence of
Irene on the Gibson Girl, Hayes
said.
He also “saw no need to make
her perfect — because Irene
wasn’t perfect.”
The Gibson Girl was an
enormous commercial success.
Her image adorned pillows,
wallpaper, inspired songs, and a
Gibson girl series was featured
on a set of dinner plates.
The Gibsons had two children
and a home on Manhattan’s
Upper East Side. In 1905, Gibson
decided to drop illustration and
went to Europe to study painting.
In 1907, calamity ensued
when Gibson lost most of his
money in a stock market crash,
forcing him to start over as an
illustrator.
In 1918, Life magazine’s art
editor, John Ames Mitchell,
died, and Gibson took over. He
eventually became the owner of
the magazine.
He wasn’t much of a businessman, Hayes said, only taking the
job because he felt he should.
“He was a victim of his own
sense of duty and responsibility.”
And in the meantime the
Gibson Girl (and the Gilded
Age) succumbed to the Flapper
and the Jazz Age.
Irene Gibson became active
in Democratic party politics,
supporting first Al Smith and
then Franklin Roosevelt.
And in 1931 Gibson resigned
as president of Life, which was
bought by Henry Luce and developed into the picture magazine
people think of today.
He died in 1944, on 700 Acre
Island on the Maine coast.
Irene returned to western
Virginia, and died in 1956, impressive to the end.

TACONIC — A hardy group
of parishioners accompanied the
Rev. John Kreta from All Saints
Orthodox Church down Twin
Lakes Road to O’Hara’s Landing
on East Twin Lake on Sunday,
Jan. 10, for the annual Blessing
of the Lake.
It was unseasonably warm at
about 50 degrees, but the relative
warmth was accompanied by
steady rain and a persistent wind.
This didn’t seem to bother
anyone, as the group hove into
view, singing under their umbrellas.
Kreta, dressed in his priestly
garb and hiking boots, led the
singing ceremony.
At the climax, he tossed a
crucifix (with twine attached)
into the water, and hauled it back
out again, three times.
Later on, at the small church,
he was asked why the cross was
thrown in three times.
“Because we do everything in

Kreta said the ceremony reminds worshippers of Christ’s

and symbolizes “Christ coming

Lime Rock was an Eden for fun, even boasting its own casino, from the 1880s to the early 1900s.

Casino meant wild times in
Lime Rock in the early 1900s
LIME ROCK — In the latter
part of the 1800s and early 1900s,
Lime Rock was the heart of Barnum and Richardson country
— a small dynasty that rose and
fell within 100 years.
The casino, built about 1885
by Barnum and Richardson for
the enjoyment of their workers,
was the cultural and recreational
hub of the town, with pool and
billiards, Saturday night dances,
a stage and a movie theater.
Downstairs was one large
room. The second floor was the

performance area with a stage.
The Ladies Sewing Circle used
the kitchen for their dinners at 25
cents per person and the church
had suppers there costing as little
as a dime.

length of Main Street from the

Library will close —
briefly — from Jan. 25
SALISBURY — Patrons of the Scoville Memorial Library will
have to change their library habits to some extent starting Jan. 25,
when the renovation work on the library’s main floor begins, and
the library will be closed.
The goal is to establish temporary quarters in the library’s lower
level by Feb. 15, with new adult titles, DVD and audio titles and a
selection of children’s books.
There will also be computers, printers, newspapers and magazines,
and places to sit and work.
During this period, patrons who make a request for an item from
another library should choose a pickup location other than Scoville.
Any local library is fine; choose from the pulldown menu on the
library website, www.scovillelibrary.org.
Patrons are welcome to stock up on items from the stacks. Books
checked out after Jan. 11 will be due Feb. 16. Readers who are done
with items by Jan. 25 are asked to return them. After Jan. 25, items
should be kept until Feb. 16 (or when the library reopens). There
will be no late fees.
The children’s story hour will continue at the Congregational
Church across Library Street from the library.
All the library’s digital content, ebooks, eaudios, movies and
music will be available throughout the renovation.

church to the casino, and Main
Street was illuminated by gas
lamps as early as the 1860s.
Lakeville didn’t have street
lights until 1904, Salisbury not
until 1947.
In addition to the casino,
Barnum and Richardson built a
bandstand in 1906 as a place for
the company’s 18-piece company
band to give weekly performances during the summer. They
built workers houses, a baseball
field, the clubhouse casino, the
bicycle track and a race track for
horses where the Barnums and
Richardsons could train their
high-stepping trotters for big
races at the Falls Village track
across the river or on Wells Hill
in Lakeville and for the races at
Saratoga Springs. In the 1880s
they built the Golden Rod Cycle
Race Track for bicycle racing in
the field between Trinity Church
and the Ensign house.
By 1907 Lime Rock had a
population of between 500 and
700. A 1908 newspaper story
called Lime Rock “an industrial
Eden” — “it is a no-license village. There is not a policeman or
a constable in the place as there
is no occasion for arrests.”
In 1923 all of this came to
an end with the demise of the
Barnum and Richardson Co.,
then known as the Salisbury
Iron Works; and Lime Rock , the
company town, was left virtually
deserted.

SALISBURY — At the Jan.
4 meeting of the Board of Selectmen, First Selectman Curtis
Rand held out the possibility of
some traffic being allowed on
the Amesville bridge before its
targeted opening in May.
Rand said the mild December
weather allowed for more work
to be done on the bridge than
expected.
“We’ll make every effort to
open it for some traffic this
winter, prior to May.”
If that does happen, Rand said
the traffic will be one way, with
stop signs at either end.
He also said that no road salt
can be allowed on the concrete
deck. Untreated sand would be
acceptable, but anyone using
the bridge, especially on icy
days, would do so at their own
risk.
Rand said the state Department of Transportation was
reviewing — again — the plans
for the intersection of Routes 41
and 44 in Lakeville.
“We’re pushing to get this out
to bid,” he said.
He said the priorities are the
sidewalk up to Deano’s Pizzeria;
the stone wall by the park; and
the crosswalk across Route 41.
On the new transfer station
proposal, Rand said the Transfer
Station Building Committee “has
made it clear that this is the plan
they want.
“They reviewed some 11th-

chairman and Roger Crain will
be the new vice chairman.
Selectman Jim Dresser, a
member of the AHC, said Riva’s
business schedule had become
too demanding to allow him
to devote the time to the commission.
Ayer, he continued, was the
coordinator for the commission
and has a good knowledge of
the topic.
The selectmen agreed on
a resolution thanking George
Kiefer for his 40-plus years on the
Housatonic River Commission.

‘Green’ guidelines
for Historic District
By Cynthia Hochswender

SHARON — The Sharon
Historic District Commission
has created a set of guidelines
relating to the use of solar
panels and other energy-saving
building options on homes in
the center of town.
Sharon is one of the first
small towns in the state to
create the “green” guidelines
for a historic district, according
to commission Chairman John
Baroody.
As electric rates continue to
rise in Connecticut, Baroody
said, property owners are
looking for cost-saving alternatives. In the historic district
alone (which includes about
100 buildings) there were a
half dozen requests last year
for permission to try the green
alternatives.
The guidelines, in a nutshell,
acknowledge the increased interest in the green options and
suggest the best ways for property owners to add solar panels,
heat collectors, photovoltaic
systems and other devices to
buildings on the Green and in
other historic areas of town.
The goal is for them to be as
inconspicuous as possible from
the road and nearby walkways.
It is noted in the guidelines
that historic buildings are often already environmentally
designed.
“Historic building construction methods and materials often maximized natural
sources of heating, lighting and
ventilation to respond to local

climactic conditions.…
“The most sustainable
building may be one that
already exists … good preservation is often synonymous
with sustainability.”
Baroody said the guidelines
are meant to “serve two laudable tasks: historic preservation
and energy efficiency and
sustainability.”
The commission would
like more than anything for
property owners to think about
what they’re doing before they
do it, and to discuss it with the
commission. The guidelines
also remind property owners
that the technology is changing
all the time and that no one
should do anything that can’t
be undone relatively easily.
The new guidelines can be
found at the town of Sharon
website, www.sharonct.org;
and at Town Hall, in the Building and Land Use office on the
second floor.
The Historic District includes, roughly, properties that
border Calkinstown Road (to
the intersection with Jewett Hill
Road), Gay Street, North Main
Street, Upper Main Street,
South Main Street, Amenia
Union Road (to the intersection with Boland Road),
Boland Road and West Woods
Road No. 1 (to the intersection
with Boland Road).
The commission meets on
the fourth Monday of every
month at 6 p.m. at Town Hall.

SHARON — Sam Posey is
certainly one of Sharon’s most
accomplished residents, having
gained fame as a race car driver
and TV commentator for sports
events including the Tour de
France (and of course lots of car
races); as the designer of notable
buildings (including, naturally,
several at Lime Rock Park); as
the designer and builder of an
envy-inspiring model railroad;
and as a painter.
Though he continues to
produce work of his own (he expressed delight and satisfaction
with a recently completed work
during the telephone interview
for this article), he has added
another item to his CV: the
successful organization of art
competitions.
It was Posey who managed the
popular fundraising art contest
for the Sharon Land Trust. Artists
were invited to capture the view
of Mudge Pond from Route 41
and Long Pond Road several
years ago.
The new contest that he has
taken charge of (and made a
success of, as is his tendency)
is the annual one sponsored by
the Indian Mountain School in
Lakeville.
The deadline for this year’s
competition is midnight on
Monday, Jan. 18. This year, all
artists in the area (over the age of
18) have been invited to submit
work. In the past, the competition has been by invitation only;
some of the best-known artists
in the area took part, creating
paintings, photos and work in
other media on specific themes.

Septic system vital in West Cornwall
By Karen Bartomioli

PHOTO BY KAREN BARTOMIOLI

Jane Muir Sellery, left, and Jill Gibbons, the current and
former Cornwall social services directors, shared a smile at
a farewell party for Gibbons at Town Hall Jan. 10.

Fond memories as
Jill Gibbons retires
CORNWALL — A smooth
transition is underway in the
town social services office.
Jane Muir Sellery of Salisbury has been hired to replace
Jill Gibbons, who, 32 years ago,
became the first and only social
services director the town has
had. She is leaving to take a
position elsewhere, working in
fiber arts.
Gibbons has stayed on to
show the ropes to Sellery, who
attended Sunday afternoon’s
farewell party for her predecessor at Town Hall.
Gibbons gave her assurances the town would be in good
hands. She described Sellery
as kind, compassionate and
capable.
“I know she will be good at
it,” Gibbons said, remembering
the simple assurances given to
her all those years ago.
Back then, there was no
social worker. Residents’ needs
were handled by the selectmen’s
office.
It was Patsy Van Doren behind that desk then. Gibbons
recalled how Van Doren called
her about taking over the files
that were piling up.
With a background in fine
arts, Gibbons was surprised, but
with Van Doren’s confidence in
her compassion and abilities,
she was quickly trained and
was soon traveling to Sharon
and Falls Village to help folks
there as well.
Gibbons has had a hand
in everything that has been
established here since, from
Halloween parties, playgroups,
holiday gift and back-to-school
programs and the food and fuel
bank, in addition to helping
residents get needed services
and aid.
She served on the board of
the child center and other town
entities, worked in the probate
court with Judge Maggie Cooley
and was one of the founders of
the Housatonic Youth Service
Bureau. Co-founder Cynthia
Bianchi sent a lengthy email
praising Gibbons for never
approaching it as a 9 to 5 job,
calling her a true social services
advocate for all she has done for
the region.
Her dedication was noted time and again. Gibbons’
husband, Ed Thorney, spoke
of her holding office hours on
Fridays, when the Town Hall was
closed, to preserve the dignity
and anonymity of her clients.
She brought her job home with
her, which he respected greatly,
as “our home became the base
to keep other homes together.”
Client Robin Forbes was

overwhelmed by emotions when
she rose to speak, but needed
to express her admiration for
Gibbons’ “totally selfless care
for Cornwall residents.” What
she received from Gibbons went
above and beyond.
“She became my confidant
and my friend. She had my back
when no one else would listen.
She believed in me,” Forbes said.
“In the end, all you have are
your memories, and I am just
thrilled that you came into my
life and you will be one of my
memories.”
Gibbons offered lots of
thanks to co-workers and the
community.
“We shared the greatest joys
and the greatest sadnesses humans can feel,” she said. “I am
very grateful to have been part
of the Cornwall tribe.”
Gibbons was given, on behalf
of the town, a wrapped gift
that Ridgway described only
as “made in Cornwall,” and
symbolic of the way Gibbons
lightened the lives of many
Cornwall residents.

Mohawk ski
area starts
making snow
CORNWALL — That persistent hum in the air is the
distant roar of lots of Super
PoleCats throwing real, albeit
man-made, snow onto the
slopes of Mohawk Mountain.
The ski area finally opened
on Jan. 2 after weeks of not
only a lack of snow, but also of
temperatures far above normal
— too warm for the snowmaking that typically has the slopes
covered well before now.
By last weekend, eight trails
and six lifts were running, about
60 percent of the mountain.
There was night skiing and Mohawk was able to participate in
what was hoped to be world record-setting ski and snowboard
lessons held simultaneously at
at least 164 ski areas across the
country.
With rain and warmer temperatures on Sunday, the mountain was closed to preserve the
hard-won snow base. Plans were
to reopen Monday with a full
schedule and freshly groomed
conditions.

CORNWALL — The West
Cornwall Septic Study Group
met for the first time, on Jan. 7.
The nine members took a step
toward fulfilling their charge of
seeking potential solutions for
community-wide waste water
removal and/or a municipal
water supply.
The goal is to revitalize the
village adjoining the Covered
Bridge. Density of land use and
retrofitted septic systems that
often overlap setbacks for wells
have left it without options for
expansions, such as a private
home conversion to a bed and
breakfast. Even existing businesses, such as restaurants, are
severely limited.
The meeting was held in Ian
Ingersoll’s retail shop. Ingersoll
has helped lead the charge for a
solution. He said he will continue
to speak with village residents
about their needs and compile
an email list to keep everyone
informed. He is finding the

at 5 p.m. in the shop.
Piker was elected chairman.
Libby Mitchell is the vice chair.
Joanne Wojtusiak is secretary.
Remaining members are David Dolinsky, Richard Griggs,
Priscilla Pavel, Jack Preston and
Josh Tyson.
The study group proceeded
to lay out the issues it needs to
address.
A preliminary study by engineer Steve Dietzko of Milone
& MacBroom (presented at a
public forum in December)
was discussed, as was the role of
Goman & York, the economic
development consultant working under a regional grant.
Dolinsky proposed moving
ahead with the engineering proposal, but there was a consensus
among the rest of the group to
seek additional proposals from
other firms.
A map devised by the Torrington Area Health District
(TAHD) needs to be fine-tuned
for a true assessment of need. It
shows many of the more-than-50

septic systems to be questionable,
but some residents questioned
the information when it was
presented at the forum. Mitchell
brought to the meeting a site plan
for her Bridge House property
(formerly known as the Pink
House) that shows an approved
system, despite TAHD claiming
to not have that information.
Piker called for a visionary
study to be done alongside the exploration of engineered options.
That could be where Goman &
York comes in.
“We need professional help
to show us what vibrancy looks
like here,” Piker said.
Members will also look into
what other towns are doing in the
way of septic, sewer and water.
Meanwhile, the Board of
Selectmen will explore possible
funding. The U.S. Department of
Agriculture routinely funds such
projects with low-interest loans.
An application will be submitted to
the new $2.5 million state Responsible Growth & Transit Oriented
Development grant program.

Landmark status on horizon for Bridge House
By Karen Bartomioli

CORNWALL — The designation of the Bridge House as a
national historic landmark has
come a step closer to reality.
The nomination was approved by the State Historic
Preservation Office board on
Dec. 7. It goes on to the National
Park Service for consideration,
but at this point is believed to
be almost a sure thing.
Arts and social center
Libby Mitchell, who owns the
West Cornwall property with her
husband, Jim Herity, forwarded
emailed information from the
state as to the procedure. A staff
person at the federal agency will
review the nomination, mainly
for any needed technical edits,
but initial word is that no issues
are expected. A 45-day noticing
period is required.
The result would be voluntary restrictions that allow the
property to remain privately
owned, stay on town tax rolls
and continue to serve useful
purposes while also contributing
to the historic character of the
community.
The designation will open
the door to tax credits and grant
funding for continued improvements at the landmark in the
center of West Cornwall. It is
commonly known as the pink
house for the pastel paint job
given it by the last owner.
Mitchell and Herity completed an overhaul of the facade,
front porch and lawn of the 1859
Italianate-style home. The front
is now a creamy yellow. Trim details were uncovered and a white
picket fence installed.
The rest of the house can’t
be changed yet because of

An interesting discovery was
that the property is officially the

Its association with her husband, Stephen Foster, who predeceased her, makes it historically
significant.

expected division of support
between those with working

look like.
“Most people don’t want to
see any changes to the landscape,”
Ingersoll said. “But in 20 years,
we’re not going to recognize the
town, because there will always
be change.”
Todd Piker agreed, picking up
Ingersoll’s point that the town
needs to choose the direction
of change.
It was acknowledged that
public perception and inclusion
are important. The overriding
concern appears to be the inevitable high cost of any solution,
which would eventually have to be
approved by a town meeting vote.
First Selectman Gordon
Ridgway advised that while the
study group is advisory only, all
of its business needs to be conducted in public and meetings
properly posted.
Meetings will be held the
second Thursday of each month

ing the railroad and economic
prosperity to Cornwall. The
New York City merchant created
markets in the city for Cornwall
farmers’ surplus dairy products.
About that time, Litchfield
County residents petitioned the
state Legislature for a rail line
along the Housatonic River to
spur the economy. Construction
soon began and by early 1840,
the railroad from Bridgeport
had reached New Milford. There
it stopped, as funds dwindled
and the terrain became more
difficult.
Nine months later, Stephen
Foster was hired as a contractor
willing to tackle “Deep Rock Cut”
near West Cornwall, which was
literally the doorway to the north
and the state line.
Contemporary documents
describe Foster as a pleasant,
energetic man who was shrewd
about business. Along the West
Cornwall railroad tracks, he and
his brother-in-law, Russell Pratt,
opened a business that initially
shipped lumber, butter and
cheese to points south.
They soon bought out the
established Lyman and Porter
lumberyard, and began shipping to Cornwall “exotic” items
such as plaster, coffee, lemons,
gin, annatto (a South American
condiment) and clams.
It became a model for businesses in the Housatonic River
valley.
Between 1842 and 1845, the
Fosters built the two-story Greek
revival home on the Sharon-Goshen Turnpike, the village’s main
road. Its facade included an
offset entryway, frieze windows
and end pilasters, with a porch

House is close to earning landmark status.
in the back.
There may have been a
front porch, but in 1858-59 the
Italianate addition was built to
the east, with its boxy shape,
wide frieze, overhanging eaves,
decorative double brackets and
hipped roof. The pitch of the
gable roof on the Greek Revival
section was altered in order to
incorporate the wider Italianate
eaves.

It is the earliest known Italianate home in Cornwall, adding
to its historical profile.
In the early 1870s, an ell was
added on the house’s western
elevation, and in the early 1930s,
the hipped roof was renovated
and three dormer windows were
incorporated into the design.
Foster died in 1863, at the
age of 45; Helen Foster died
in 1875.

Preview of welcome center plans Jan. 21
By Cynthia Hochswender

KENT — Architect John
Milnes Baker has conceived a
very handsome design for the
public restroom and visitors
center near the railroad station
in the center of town.
Town residents will get a
chance to see the plans at a
town meeting at Town Hall
on Thursday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m.
First Selectman Bruce Adams said that the purchase of
the property from attorney
Bill Manasse was completed
on Tuesday, Jan. 5. The purchase price was $190,000 for
the half-acre parcel. Funds for
the purchase will come from
a $500,000 state Small Town
Economic Assistance Program
grant the town received in the
summer of 2014.
At a meeting in October,
town residents had asked
that a study committee be
formed to create the design
for the project. The committe
includes Baker, Mike Everett,
Mike VanValkenburg and
Merle Koblenz; they have met
three times, and they presented
their proposed design to the
selectmen on Jan. 5.
Baker did the drawings and
came up with the concept for
the building, which measures
20 by 24 feet. It has columns in
front, and a small step up from
street level into the building
(there are ramps on either side
of the step). There is a men’s
room, a women’s room, two
ADA-compliant gender neutral bathrooms and a utility
room for the heater and pump.
“In the front is a welcoming
porch,” Baker said. “I think on
the wall there might be a bulletin board that can be closed,

PLANS ANDDRAWING COURTESY JOHN MILNES BAKER

Kent resident and architect John Milnes Baker will share the
plan for the new Kent Welcome Center at the town meeting
on Jan. 21.
for people to put announcements
and fliers and things.”
There will also be two benches
on the porch, “so there’s room
for hikers to put down their
backpacks and gear. A lot of this
project is for the Appalachian
Trail thru-hikers.”
Also for the hikers: a small
outdoor shower at the back of
the building.
On the outside, the building
is meant to look “welcoming
and unpretentious,” Baker said.
It will have wood clapboards and
will probably be a gray/taupe
color that will blend in with its
surroundings.
Inside, the design is sturdy and

practical, since the space is likely
to see a lot of hard use.
“The surface we hope to use
on the walls is graffiti-proof, for
example,” Baker said.
The floors will probably be
terrazzo, a kind of decorative but
dense concrete.
“The floor can be pitched
toward a drain so that, if necessary, the whole space can be
hosed down.”
Having said that, the interiors
will be attractive and, depending
on the paint color, cheerful.
“I’ve owned property in
Kent for the past 15 years and
have lived here for 10,” Baker
said. “I’m a proud member of

the Kent community, and if I
ever had occasion to use this
public restroom, I wanted it
to be something I could feel
proud of.”
Baker is also on the town’s
Architectural Review Board,
which helps protect the rural,
New England character that
many people love about Kent.
Suggested guidelines include
pitched roofs, clapboards, eaves.
“I’m very conscious as
an architect of details and
proportions,” Baker said.
In addition to his work for
clients, he is also the author
of “American House Styles: A
Concise Guide.”
The other members of
the Visitor Center/Restroom
Committee were enthusiastic
about Baker’s design, as were
the selectmen. But Baker is
a seasoned veteran of town
meetings and of the desire of
clients to make adjustments.
“I don’t think I could have
survived for 30 years as an
architect doing mostly residential work, and going before
boards,” without being able to
compromise, he said.
He came to Kent a decade
ago from Bedford, N.Y., another town that fiercely protects the beauty and esthetics
of its village.
“I’m still a consultant for
the Town of Bedford Historic
Building Preservation Committee,” he said.
As with all public projects,
taxpayers are encouraged to
come see the plans and make
their comments — preferably
before construction begins.
The design, if approved,
will be put out for bids. The
estimated cost of construction
is $180,000.

KENT — The winners of the
2015 Gingerbread Festival were

KENT — There usually isn’t
much drama and conflict at the
annual town meeting, a quiet
affair at which “housekeeping”
matters are voted on for the
coming year.
But anyone truly interested
in the little details that make
the town tick knows that one
of the highlights of the annual
gathering (to be held this year
at Town Hall on Thursday, Jan.
21, at 7 p.m.) is the presentation
of the town report.
The report is produced by the
Board of Finance, and one of the
most important parts of it is the
audit of town finances.
Those numbers on their own
are already interesting; with a
little careful thought, they give a
picture of what happened in Kent
in 2015 and what the priorities of
the town’s taxpayers were.
But for those who don’t read
numbers fluently, there are also
narratives in the report that
present a picture of the past year.
One of the most interesting
statistics in this year’s draft report (it’s not official until voters
approve it at the town meeting)
comes from the building department and Building Official
William T. P. Jenks.
His report includes a chart
that shows the pace of construction over the past five years
— and the pace is dwindling
substantially. That not only is
an indicator of how the face of
town is changing (or not), it also
impacts revenue to the town.
Building permits hit a peak
in 2012/13 (the fiscal year begins
July 1), when 541 permits were
issued, bringing in $141,915; a
close second was 2010/11, when
488 permits were issued, bringing in $141,131.
It’s interesting to note that
only two buildings were built in
2013/14. In 2010/11, there were
eight dwellings built.
In 2014/15 only a single
dwelling was built, although 452
permits were issued (bringing the
town $60,924 in fees).
“Construction in Kent remains sluggish with only one
new dwelling unit (a one-bedroom apartment),” Jenks said
in his report. “This is indicated
by the 50 percent drop in total
construction from last fiscal year.
“I expect this trend to continue into the 2015-16 fiscal year.”
He also noted an increase
in “roof-mounted solar voltaic
systems being installed.”

North Canaan

New CFC Chief Allyn invites one and all to join force
By Karen Bartomioli

NORTH CANAAN — Just shy of 30 years ago,
Brian Allyn was “bugged” by a friend to join the
Canaan Fire Company (CFC).
“He said it would be fun,” Allyn recalled. “That
was before the state mandated firefighter training.”
Not long after, he was in the second class ever
to earn Firefighter 1 certification.
And nearly three decades later, in December
2015, he became the new CFC fire chief.
For Allyn, fun remains part of the equation.
He is a good-natured, unpretentious guy with a
good grasp of what CFC has and will continue to
struggle with: a shortage of volunteers.
“It’s not as bad as in a lot of other towns. We’re
in pretty good shape, numbers wise, but we’re not
getting any younger. We need to bring in new members and keep it interesting for the ones we have.
“We’re not making light of the seriousness of
firefighting, but we do a lot of training to keep
up with requirements that seem to change daily.
We’re here every Tuesday night training. We look
for ways to have a little fun at the same time. There
has to be a sense of being a team and sort of a club.
These guys come down on their days off and do a
lot of things that need doing.”
He will lead the charge by CFC officers to
attract more members. They will start at the elementary school level. Letters are going home to
families, inviting them to a Jan. 26 open house at
the firehouse, where junior department members
will show what they do. That includes helping at
the annual fire prevention day at North Canaan

“There are lots of things people can do if they
don’t want to be an interior firefighter. They can
do exterior support or fire police. They can bring
expertise. We just got a used utility truck donated by
Aquarion [Water Company], and guys are working
on converting it when they can.”
Need people with flexible time
The struggle is mainly about finding people
who are flexible, especially those who can leave
their jobs in the middle of the day to respond to
emergency calls.
Allyn is a co-owner of Allyndale Limestone.
That makes him flexible, but it’s still a sacrifice. It
takes family support, which he finds in his wife,
Tracy. Their 7-year-old son, Wesley, loves to come
to the firehouse with dad, too.
Does he want to be a firefighter?
“He wants to be everything,” Allyn said.
He is modest about his election to chief.
“I was a little nervous about my capabilities,
but we have good officers and the vote was a vote
of confidence. There is no specific training. You
go on what you’ve learned to that point. That’s
been a lot, and the training never stops. The big
thing about being chief is being able to work well
with people.”
Allyn has been an officer for nearly all of the
last 25 years, helping to guide the department to
meet North Canaan’s needs.
Prospective members are invited to come to the
firehouse any Tuesday at 7 p.m., where they can
observe and ask questions.

Rules for parking in snowstorms
NORTH CANAAN — On-street parking restrictions during
snowstorms are bound to be enforceable at some point this winter.
Drivers are reminded by the Board of Selectmen that parking is
suspended on town and state roads when plow trucks are out. That
also applies to periods in between storms, when snowbanks need
to be pushed back.
Vehicles will be towed when necessary. The state levies a $65 fine.
Any towed vehicles will incur a towing fee and possibly a storage
charge.
The best bet is to always use off-street parking. The municipal
parking lot west of Railroad Street/Route 7 is always available for
long-term and overnight parking.

Town’s website is now more interactive
NORTH CANAAN — The town website is
becoming more interactive and comprehensive,
with an events calendar added and plans underway to post minutes from town board and
commission meetings.
The www.northcanaan.org site went live
four years ago. It initially provided basic town
information, including its history, contact information for town offices and links to other
pertinent websites.
It has grown to provide online access to
documents that include permit applications,
town finances and zoning regulations. One
can now look up and pay both town and fire
district taxes online.
More recently, residents have come to se-

Putting land to new use
Plans are underway for uses for the 35 acres behind the elementary school purchased by
North Canaan. First up is likely a new playground and a soccer field. For more on this, see
a story next week.

First bids, then maybe auction,
for foreclosed house on Route 44
NORTH CANAAN — A house seized by the
town for substantial back taxes will be offered
to adjoining property owners first, and possibly
offered at a public sale after that.
The Tudor-style single-family home at 53 East
Main St./Route 44, just east of the town center, will
be offered with a minimum price of just under
$50,000, the amount owed.
First Selectman Douglas Humes said he does
not know what other liens there might be against
the property, but the town is only interested in
getting the tax lien. Any sale proceeds above owed
taxes would go first to satisfy any other debts. But
the town could realize a profit.
Humes said that an article in The Lakeville
Journal in December brought significant interest

in the property. Its market value, per the town
assessor’s records, is nearly $200,000.
There is minor damage to the home’s interior.
Humes estimated about $25,000 is needed to bring
it back to good condition.
Adjoining property owners were sent registered
letters by the Jan. 27 deadline to register their interest in buying the property. If there is more than
one bid from that mailing, Humes said sealed bids
will be sought.
If the property goes to public auction, it will be
a live bidding process.
The house was built in 1930 and has three bedrooms, two baths and 2,073 square feet of living
space on .33 acres. It has town water and sewer.

THE LAKEVILLE JOURNAL, Thursday, January 14, 2016

Diverse points of
entry into education
By Patrick L. Sullivan

FALLS VILLAGE — Jose Martinez, principal at Housatonic
Valley Regional High School,
gave a summary on Jan. 5 of
major events and activities at the
school in 2015. They included:
• A 1:1 computer-to-student
Chromebook program was
initiated.
• Dual-enrollment opportunities were increased for students
through additional connections
with the University of Connecticut (Early College Experience
program) and with Northwestern Connecticut Community
College in Winsted.
• Increased mental health services and support for students.
This year the school began a
partnership with Housatonic
Youth Service Bureau (HYSB)
to provide counseling services
on campus during the school day.
• Congresswoman Elizabeth
Esty (D-5) visited the school on
Oct. 14. One of her top priorities
is STEM (Science Technology
Engineering Math) education.
She visited the Agricultural
Education Center and the Mahoney-Hewat Science and Technology Center, and addressed
student government members,
American Politics students and
FFA officers.
• The FFA National Convention Louisville, Ky., was attended
by 11 students. Mari Cullerton
placed sixth in the nation in
the Environmental/Natural Re-

sources category.
• Parent Partnership meetings
continued this year. The purpose
of these meetings is to have an
open dialogue with parents and
community members about
HVRHS and to address concerns
about the school.
• The Mahoney-Hewat Science and Technology Center
continues to be a hub of activity,
Martinez said. This summer,
groups of elementary and middle
school children were invited to
participate in science learning
activities. Housatonic students
and adult volunteers worked
with the youngsters on science
projects.
• The 21st Century Fund took
the Civic Life Project one step
further by creating a forum for
students. Now, instead of simply
presenting their films to the community, they are also encouraged
to promote public discussion of
their films’ content.
“Since becoming principal in
2014, the administration, faculty
and I have committed ourselves
to fostering a ‘community of
learners,’” Martinez said.
“We are seeking out innovative programs that will further
the educational experience of
all who attend HVRHS — be
it through the regular curriculum, FFA, the Mahoney-Hewat
Science and Technology Center
for hands-on-learning, or after-school clubs like robotics,
Envirothon, electric car, theater,
sports and artgarage.”

BOE holiday wrap-up
FALLS VILLAGE — The
FFA Holiday Store sold about
$64,000 worth of products in
December 2015, FFA Treasurer
Kevin Massey reported to the
Region One Board of Education
on Monday, Jan. 4, at Housatonic
Valley Regional High School
(HVRHS).
Massey said the store sold
669 trees, 613 poinsettias, and
652 wreaths made in-house
— plus another 347 wreaths
“brought in.”
FFA Secretary Molly Benack
said the holiday store, which
was open Dec. 3 to 23, is part
of a sales and marketing unit
for the students.
Patrick Kennedy, FFA reporter, thanked the community for

HVRHS Principal Jose Martinez said in introducing the
students that the holiday store
was “an awesome display of skills
and competencies we expect.”
He said the students had
to plan, solve problems, think

community.
The board moved into executive session at 8 p.m. to discuss
a request for an early retirement

The executive session ended
at 8:50 p.m. with the board declining to take any action.
The following statement was
read into the record:
“We appreciate our staff and
seriously considered their early
retirement proposal but with a
large building project in front of
us, we felt that all money spent at
this time should directly benefit
our students.”

White-knuckle finish to LHK Geo Bee
FALLS VILLAGE — Jessy
Haggard, grade eight, is the Geography Bee champion at the Lee
H. Kellogg School.
Jessy won a grueling 11-question tiebreaker with runner-up
Natalie Wadsworth (grade seven).
Elaine Dekker (grade seven)

finished in third place.
These competitions cover a lot
of territory, so to speak. It’s not
just reading maps.
Subjects that came up included white sturgeon (which grow
up to 20 feet long); berries that
grow in bogs; the islands of the

Caribbean; wolves; and Harry
Potter’s itinerary.
Questioner and social studies
teacher Amy Lake praised the
contestants and the audience for
their perseverance during the
long, tense tiebreaker.

Something new for the Historical Society
FALLS VILLAGE — On Jan.
7, third- and fourth-graders
from the Lee H. Kellogg School
presented the Falls Village-Canaan Historical Society with a
set of 20 handy laminated cards,
each addressing an aspect of oldtime education at the Beebe Hill
Schoolhouse (which remains
open to the public in summer as
a mini museum).
Teacher Eileen Gargan said the
students visited the schoolhouse
twice, researched artifacts and
read many texts about schools
in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Each child had different topics
and wrote, conferred, revised and
typed the information.
Gargan said the children wanted to do something that would be
helpful for the Historical Society,
so after looking at different project formats they voted to create
“discovery cards” for the schoolhouse museum. Each card has at
least one photograph, a “Did You
Notice” section, a main sentence
in bold print and a paragraph
with details. These can be used
for self-guided tours when the
schoolhouse is open.
The set of 20 cards was presented to Lillian Lovett and Judy Jacobs
of the Historical Society. One set
is still at the school, and the other
set was on the counter at Jacobs’
Garage on Friday morning, Jan.
8, when a reporter stopped in to
discuss matters automotive.
Jacobs said she and Lovett
were very pleased and grateful
for the cards.

FALLS VILLAGE — At the
regular monthly meeting Monday,
Jan. 11, the Board of Selectmen
voted to appoint Susan Kelsey as
the Republican registrar of voters,
to finish the term of the late Louise Tyndall. First Selectman Pat
Mechare said, “We are thrilled she
is willing to do this.”
The selectmen voted to authorize Mechare to cooperate with the
Housatonic Valley Association,
which is doing a survey of bridges
and culverts. The town will assist
with letters to property owners,
asking their permission to enter.
And the selectmen signed off
on a permit to facilitate the Source
to Sound paddle trip this spring —
a 10-day, 149-mile trip by canoe
and kayak on the Housatonic
River. The trip is scheduled for
April 22 to May 1.
Reporting to the Board of
Finance prior to the selectmen’s
meeting, Mechare said that she
had read Salisbury First Selectman
Curtis Rand’s comments last week
that the Water Street bridge could
possibly be opened before the May
deadline.
Mechare said she had not spoken to Rand but said she would
insist that any bridge opening be
approved by the state Department
of Transportation and would not
involve assuming any additional
liability by the town.
Mechare told both boards that
the Northwest Hills Council of
Governments is advertising for
a regional elections monitor in
response to a state requirement.
“I have no idea how this will
work,” said Mechare.
The selectmen will hold a
special meeting Wednesday, Jan.
27, 10 a.m. at Town Hall, in which
they will take their first look at
the proposed spending plan for
2016-17.

OBITUARIES

Marion Ann Donovan

NORFOLK — Marion Ann
Donovan, a career foreign service officer and world
traveler, died peacefully at her home on Dec.
22, 2015. She was 95.
Miss Donovan
was born on Oct. 13,
1920, and grew up in
Brooklyn, N.Y., where
she played the violin
and piano and read
voraciously. Her love
of travel began early,
when, with her father at the
wheel, the Donovan family traveled across the country in a 1928
Buick to visit historic and natural
sites during summer vacations.
Miss Donovan majored in

CORNWALL — Einar Lindholm, 85, died on Jan. 5, 2015, at
the Sharon Hospital after a short
illness. He was the very loving
husband of Patience Lindholm.
Einar was born Feb. 8, 1930, in

Martha Ann Riva
NORTH CANAAN — Martha
Ann Riva, 57, of East Canaan
Road, died Jan. 5, 2016, after being
stricken at her home.
Martha was born Oct. 25, 1958,
in Sharon, the daughter of the late
Mabel (Karlson) Johnsen and Paul
P. Riva.
She graduated from Housatonic Valley Regional High School
and then worked for many years
for Elyse Harney and the late John
Harney Sr. of Salisbury.
Martha was a wonderful homemaker.
She provided care for her
mother and the many farm animals that were on the property
over the years.
She is survived by her daughter,

She was attracted to Norfolk’s
natural beauty and the Yale
School of Music’s
summer program,
but her decision
was cinched when
she walked into the
Norfolk Public Library and found a
fire burning in the
fireplace. The setting
was so comfortable
and inviting that she
decided that Norfolk
was the town where she wanted
to settle.
Miss Donovan lived happily
as a Norfolk resident for more
than 30 years, where she closely followed local politics and
events, loved the opera and the
many arts the area has to offer,
and enjoyed Norfolk’s changing
seasons — especially the bold
colors of autumn — while building a reputation as a gracious
hostess who spoiled her family
and friends with big meals and
many wonderful weekends at
her home.
A lifelong animal lover, Miss
Donovan was also a devoted
supporter of the Little Guild
of St. Francis, a shelter for cats
and dogs in West Cornwall, and
attended many of its blessings of
the animals over the years.
Miss Donovan is survived by
a sister, six nieces and a nephew.
She received superlative care
around the clock during her
long illness, and the family is
deeply grateful to her wonderful
caregivers: Tina Prigge, Madeline Falk, Theresa Kochiss-Padua, Marcella Jencikova-Sadlon,
Mary Yard, Katie Hester and
Stacey Roberts. The family
would also like to express our
appreciation to the other members of the Norfolk community
who looked out for our aunt
over the years.
A Mass will be celebrated for
Miss Donovan at Immaculate
Conception Church in Norfolk
on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, those who
wish are invited to make a donation in Miss Donovan’s memory
to the Norfolk Library, the Little Guild of St. Francis (www.
littleguild.org), or a charity of
your choice.
The Kenny Funeral Home in
Norfolk has charge of arrangements.

Look for a Girl Scout (and cookies) this month
By Karen Bartomioli

Move over Oreos. From January to March each year, Girl
Scout cookies bump the classic
off the top of the bestseller list
with a total of about two million
boxes sold.
Can’t guess which are the favorite? Here’s a hint: an unknown
percentage are eaten frozen, and
some are eaten after having been
forgotten about, stashed in a
hidden freezer corner.
The answer is Thin Mints,
which account for a quarter of
sales and are baked at a rate of
up to 4.5 million per day to meet
demand.
In the Northwest Corner,
there are eight varieties to choose
from, including Rah Rah Raisins,
Toffee-tastic, Samoas, Trefoils,
Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles.
Local troops sell them for $4
per box, or $5 for the gluten free
Toffee-tastic. Orders are taken
until the end of this month, with
cookies delivered to troops at the
end of February.
Those who must talk about
nutrition will be happy to know
the recipes have changed over
the years to exclude trans fats
and preservatives. In this region,
Thin Mints and Peanut Butter
Patties are also vegan.
For the diet conscious who
find it hard to stop at a handful,

the Thin Mints and peanut buttery Tagalongs are a good choice.
They don’t have fewer calories,
but in 2009, in response to rising
costs, the number of cookies in
each box was reduced.
Be grateful it’s not 1942, when
baking supplies were in short
supply due to the war and Girl
Scouts sold calendars instead.
But then again, if it was 1933,
a box of 44 cookies would be only
23 cents (or six boxes for $1.24).
Of note is that, as of last year,
Girl Scout cookies were available
at www.amazon.com, along with
a lot of knockoffs, such as Mint
Thin cookies and others that
claim to taste just like the “real”
thing. But be warned of sticker
shock. Prices are high and so is
shipping. They can easily cost
$10 per box.
And while it might be fun to
someday get cookies delivered by
drone, it still won’t beat a smiling
Girl Scout face, or support a
local troop.
Can’t find a cookie-selling
Girl Scout?
They don’t go door-to-door
anymore, but cookie shoppers
can be put in touch with a troop
leader in their area by contacting
productsales@gsofct.org or 800922-2770 ext. 3305.
Cookies are sold online at
www.gsofct.org, with all sales
done in connection with a troop,
which will receive credit.

New work by Ross on Jan. 16
SALISBURY — Salisbury
resident Helen Klein Ross will
read from her new novel, “What
Was Mine,” at The White Hart on
Saturday, Jan. 16, at 4 p.m.
This new work is the tale of
a woman who kidnaps a baby
in a superstore—and gets away
with it for 21 years. It is a tale of
motherhood and loss, of grief
and hope and the life-shattering
effects of a single, irrevocable

moment.
Ross is a poet and novelist
whose work has appeared in The
New Yorker, New York Times, Los
Angeles Times and Iowa Review.
She is on the board of the Scoville
Memorial Library.

Nappi sinks 1,000th point
Danielle Nappi, a senior at The Marvelwood School in
Kent and lifelong resident of Wingdale, N.Y., scored
her 1,000th career point in the girls varsity basketball
game on Dec. 12 against The Darrow School. With the
milestone, Nappi became the first player in Marvelwood
girls basketball history to accomplish the feat. Nappi has
verbally committed to play basketball at Western New
England College in 2016.

Happy victory despite
sad loss of star Kearns
FALLS VILLAGE — The
Housatonic Valley Regional High
School girls defeated The Gilbert
School team from Winsted on
Jan. 5, 49-26, at home.
“Housatonic evened its record at 3-3 after a long Christmas
break,” coach Frank Hadsell
reported.
The team was led by Hannah
McGuire with 18 points and
three assists. Chloe Dakers had
15 points, four rebounds and
three assists.
Olivia Forstmann scored 6
points and had five rebounds in
her first start of the year.
“Jacquier had four points
and three steals and played great
defense,” Hadsell said.

Mara Dorsey scored two
points and freshman Caroline
Hurlburt had one point.
Kailyn Riley, Christina Winburn and Emily Geyselaers all
played but did not score.
“Emily played a great defensive game,” Hadsell said.
The team sorely missed senior
Chelsea Kearns, who broke her
wrist during the winter vacation.
“Chelsea was and always will
be a special teammate to all of
us,” Hadsell said. “She always
gave 100 percent, not only in
games but also in practice. She
was a coach’s dream. Her team
mates and I will miss her; she is
loved by us all.”

ith nothing else to do
except watch meaningless college football on TV, I went fishing on
Saturday, Jan. 2.
“Wait, what?” you exclaim.
“Isn’t it cold and snowy? Aren’t
the streams iced over?”
The answers: Yes, a bit; not
really; and no.
We had a minor snow storm a
couple weeks ago that dumped at
most a couple of inches of slushy
stuff, and it is pretty much gone.
The Housatonic is running
high, but the feeder streams are
in nice shape.
And of course the Farmington is a year-round river with a
regulated flow.
However, I chose to clamber
up Sage’s Ravine and throw little
streamers at brook trout.
And in the eternal quest to do
things in an unorthodox manner,
I rigged up a three-fly cast with
a Madame X at the top and two
bead head size 12 Wooly Buggers
(olive and black) beneath.
That wouldn’t be remarkable except I was using a 7-foot

TANGLED LINES
PATRICK L. SULLIVAN
4-weight rod in an itty-bitty
mountain brook for itty-bitty
wild trout.
It worked.
I caught a dozen brookies,
including one that was about
the length of the first joint of
my thumb. And with a bigger
streamer, I hooked (but did not
land) a substantial fish for this
water — maybe 10 or 12 inches.
Soon enough it will get cold
and snowy, which will make this
sort of thing impractical.
But it sure was fun to get out
on the second day of the year
and catch fish.
Unless otherwise noted, trout
season ends the third Saturday in
February and resumes the second
Saturday in April.
The Housatonic and Farmington rivers are mostly yearround fisheries, so it all depends
on conditions and the willing-

So … studded boots, a wading
staff and a wading belt are critical.
And it is a good idea to keep a
change of clothing in the car, as
well as a blanket.
It would probably be a good
idea to go with someone else, too,
in case the worst happens and
immediate assistance is required.
Or you can just be sensible
and wait for spring.

ness of the angler to endure
continual discomfort.
A good rule of thumb is this:
if there are large chunks of ice
floating down the river, don’t
bother.
And extreme caution is necessary. A dunking in winter is
a much more serious situation
than taking an unplanned bath
in August.

Preparing the high school
for a solid future

S

peaking of large municipal projects (see last week’s
editorial), the largest and the one that will affect every
town in Region One is the proposed renovation at
Housatonic Valley Regional High School. The project is
slated for completion in 2018, but of course that’s only after
all the presentations of the plans are made to the regional
boards of education and the towns, and then the vote on a
referendum in May of this year. The amount that will need
to be borrowed, as opposed to funded by grants, is currently being presented as about $4.3 million. For details of the
proposal, and his description of a walk through the school
with administrators, see Patrick Sullivan’s article this week
(see Page A1).
There are those in the region who, whether or not they
have ties to the school through having graduated from it or
having children who did so, still question the need for such
a seemingly all-encompassing refreshing of the school’s
plant. After all, the population of the Northwest Corner is
aging, and the school census dwindling. So why upgrade at
such a high cost?
While those families who do find a way to live in this
rural area may do so for many reasons, providing their
children with a good education is often at the top of the
list. Region One schools may have their problems, as one
could have read about over the years in the pages of this
newspaper, but the small class sizes and commitment to a
well-rounded educational and athletic experience for all its
students has not waned.
Evidence of that can be seen in Sullivan’s article last week
on a presentation by former HVRHS students who came
back after a year or two and gave their own descriptions of
the way they were prepared for college. All had good advice
for the high school students who came to listen to them,
and all had good words about the study habits and abilities
they brought with them from Housy.
Parts of the school’s facilities date back to 1962 and are
essentially non-functional. Two boilers were installed in
1989 and need to be replaced, and two buried oil tanks must
be removed by 2017 according to state law. The ability to
concentrate and learn is diminished if classrooms are not at
least comfortable and science labs have nonworking equipment and too little space. Athletics are an important part of
high school interaction and development, and locker rooms
with nonfunctional showers and outdated facilities have to
make it tough to run a full program.
Maybe it would benefit all Region One residents to walk
through the high school as Sullivan did, especially with one
of the current students who uses these facilities, to get a real
sense of the challenges they all face in trying to function
day-to-day.
Nobody can say our Region One students are spoiled,
nor will the new renovations create an unduly luxurious
environment. But it will bring the high school up to a better
position as a competitive educational center, making it more
attractive to students who might also be able to consider
attending one of the numerous well-funded private schools
in the region.
Thanks are due to the nine-member building committee, which includes representatives from each Region One
town. Their work to come to this point has been extensive,
and they are now putting it all out there for the Region One
public to evaluate.
For any taxpayer, alumni of the high school or reasonable
person who values having a high standard of public education available to all residents, attending an informational
meeting leading into the May referendum will be extremely
important. Don’t wait until the referendum is happening to
become informed about the details of this critical proposal.

Letter from Peaks Island, after a rough year

D

ear friends,
Am not in Greece.
Beginning of January
and am on Peaks Island in
Maine. The sunlight cleans the
landscape — all clarity — nothing can hide from it. The cold
(barely 9 degrees this morning)
stings. This is not the August sun
of Greece that lulled me into
complacency. Nor the Greek sun
that makes ugliness disappear
in its glow.
It has been a rough lumpy
time since July when a bad
fracture of my wrist required
surgery and all kinds of screws
and metal plates. Then a horrific flu in spite of the flu shot
and I finished December with
pneumonia.
All events probably expected
as part of life as I age. What I
did not expect was the sense of
fragility and dislocation: a new
transition into aging that I had
to try to understand, accept and
internalize. I have long-time
accepted mortality. Accepting
that I could break would now
become my Buddhist practice.
With breaking, we need help.

Adrienne the first 1966 baby here,
but she is the first baby born at
home in the township since her
sister, Alexandra, arrived on April
11, 1962.

THE CHALLENGE
OF CHANGE
ISABELLA S. BICK
The arrogance of self sufficiency
must give way to the acceptance
of support. The hard part is the
change in what I can do. I must
find, not a better or worse way
to do things, but a different way.
No comparisons to the past. In
the reality of my new now, how
can I do what I need to do? I
want to continue to live alone.
And as I find new ways, always
trying to be aware to ask for help
with gratitude.
How does that bring me to
Maine in January, rather than
the Caribbean? I have come
here because here I have three
important people in my life with
whom I can explore questions
of Being: yes, Being, not Doing.
My friend, my soul-mate
and support, the writer Eleanor
Morse (see her book, “White
Dog Fell from the Sky”). I sit in
her warm living room looking
out on the water and feel the
calm of being cared about and
encouraged.
In Portland, just a 10-minute
ferry ride from Peaks Island,
there lives my Buddhist teacher Dosho Port and Tetsugan
Zummach, both of Great Tides
Zen (on Google). With them, I
explore how to live in this difficult world with full connection
and awareness — no matter how
painful. And to still be open to
all that is kind, awesome and
ephemeral.
Gertrude Stein on her death
bed asked Alice B. Toklas, “What
is the answer?” And Gertrude
(perhaps not exactly true but
worthy of repetition and as the
Italians say, “si non e vera e ben
trovato” — if not true still a good
find), having silence as her reply
from Alice, said, “In that case,
what is the question?”
I feel in good company asking
my questions — unoriginal,
that have been asked forever.
But now for me, urgent. I will
be 84 this summer. How do I
want to live these last years,
since I want them to be full of
the passion for life? How shall
I be sure that I accept all that I
see, that I do, that I experience
— with love or with trepidation
or with anger — but always
with mindfulness. Embracing
each moment each day with the
passion fueled by the awareness
that all is ephemeral, transitory,
fleeting, changing, there and

then gone. The things that give
us momentary relief or fun or
pleasure are truly momentary.
To know that I am part of my
community, my loving friends,
the neighbors that check up
on me, my children’s morning
phone calls, my dog Max close
to my heels aging with me, even
the bear that visits my bird
feeders and the singing coyotes
at night — all this is my self, my
true self. Walt Whitman said
he contained multitudes. The
Buddha said we are all that is
our world and our action in it.
And I say how magical is the
cold in Maine that it can freeze
my cheek and open my heart.
As I shared Greece with you,
I am now sharing my Maine
sojourn — a time for introspection, renewal and hot tea. Please
join me.

a Ph.D. and MFA, works as
a therapist from her home in

Sherman Schneider, designed for

Gratitude
for holiday
generosity
The Kent community
— individuals, families and
businesses — shared their
generosity this holiday season in many ways. We are
grateful for the numerous
acts of kindness that enabled
us to help families in need
during Christmas.
From the Kent Volunteer
Fire Department’s Stuff-aTruck, State Police at Troop
L’s toy drive, Community
Foundation of Northwest
Connecticut to the individual elves, Kent School, the
House of Books’ Angel Tree,
Kent Quilters and those who
dropped off gifts and monetary donations at Town Hall,
we thank each of you.
This outpouring enabled
us to provide Christmas gifts
to 25 children and dozens of
senior citizens.
We wish to share the appreciation of these families
and individuals with the
community and publicly
thank all who worked together to make a difference
in the lives of others across
the community. Kent is fortunate to have many caring
residents who come forward
selflessly year after year to
help others, and we appreciate your continued support.
Best wishes for 2016!

Viewpoint
Here we go again. When will we learn?

THE LAKEVILLE JOURNAL, Thursday, January 14, 2016

I

n March 2012, I wrote a column titled “The real path to
triumph over terrorists.” The
essay spoke of the unanimous
verdict of Obama’s key counterterrorism players (some of whom
started their vital work during
the Bush years): We would be hit
again by terrorists in our homeland. As Herman Kahn wrote in
his famous, “On Thermonuclear
War” in 1960: “The aggressor has
to find only one crucial weakness;
the defender has to find them all,
and in advance.”
I cited examples to support
this thesis: the Underwear
Bomber and the Times Square
Bomber, both of whom failed
in their attacks only through
ineptitude. Since then, we have
witnessed the Boston Marathon
attack by the Tsarnaev brothers,
and now the terrible San Bernardino shootings. We live in
chaotic times, dangerous times,
in which worldwide media outlets ensure that we will know
every scary detail nearly in real
time. Resilience — among all
our citizenry, and throughout
our government — is our best
defense, not the panic and
reckless (and not infrequently
unlawful) actions we took after
9/11, such as: creating secret CIA
black sites to interrogate with
torture; broad-based detention
without end of not just enemies,
but of people who never harmed
us, for whom we often paid
bounties; military commissions
to mete out inferior justice, if it
can be called justice at all. The
list goes on.
If one were to judge which
path we will take — resilience,
or the opposite way — after this
latest attack and based on what
certain Republican presidential
candidates have been telling
our country, then she/he must
believe that, once again, we may
yield to our fears and our basest

instincts. (I single out the Republican candidates because I think
they are smart, high achievers
who very shrewdly calculate
that voters are frightened, so
they want to hear tough talk to
ease their apprehensions. And
for those not frightened enough,
the candidates stoke their fears.
Yet, should the toughest talker be
elected and keep her/his promises, then we must expect a rerun
of the Bush-Cheney excesses).
The candidates’ statements
clinch the point, while sowing
fear along the way:
• “The other thing with the
terrorists is you have to take
out their families. ... When they
say they don’t care about their
lives, you have to take out their
families.” (Trump).
• “[T]his whole concept of
boots on the ground ... we’ve
got a phobia about boots on the
ground. ...” (Carson). (Whenever
I hear this notion being bandied

FIELD NOTES
FROM A
BATTLEGROUND
CHARLES R. CHURCH
If one were to judge
which path we will
take — resilience, or
the opposite way —
after this latest attack
and based on what
certain Republican
presidential candidates
have been telling our
country, then she/he
must believe that, once
again, we may yield
to our fears and our
basest instincts.
that the Middle East was more
secure “when Gaddafi and Hussein were dictators” of Iraq and
Libya. (Cruz).
• We need to “[p]ut Putin
back in his little box where he
belongs.” (Carson)
• “[T]he front line with ISIS
isn’t just in Iraq and Syria, it’s in
Kennedy Airport and the Rio
Grande. ...” (Cruz).
• “I do want a wall. Walls do
work, you just have to speak to
the folks in Israel. ...” (Trump).
• “[I]n terms of leadership
(Vladimir Putin) is getting an ‘A.’”
(Trump). (Gail Collins reported
in the New York Times on Jan.
2, 2016, that Trump defended
his admiration on a talk show

by stating: “Our country does
plenty of killing.”)
• Promising to subject America’s enemies to harsh interrogation practices, namely torture,
a candidate added this big talk:
“These terrorists get a one-way
ticket to Guantanamo, where
we’re going to find out everything
they know.” (Rubio).
For those who care about
our traditions and values, these
are indeed terrifying times, but
for reasons quite apart from the
armed conflicts blossoming in
the world. It’s the chance that
one of these tough talkers might
become president which truly
frightens us. We’ve been down
this road before. Let’s not go
there again.
Salisbury’s Charles R. Church
is a human rights lawyer who,
as a senior fellow at the Center
for Policy and  Research, Seton
Hall Law, recently spent a week
at Guantanamo, serving as an
observer/journalist at pretrial
proceedings for the 9/11 case.

lec,
Forgive me for typing
this. I would usually want
to hand write a letter to a fresh
recruit going through camp, but I
have grown lazy. Apologies. I just
wanted to say how proud I am
of you. You have decided to join
the few. You make up 1 percent
of our country’s population who
is willing to drop everything and
fight. No matter the cause, no
matter the enemy, no matter the
mission, we will answer the call
without hesitation. You have adopted the warrior spirit. I honor
your strength and selflessness.
It’s a shame we don’t see each
other as much. I still remember
you as a silly little kid running
around the lake house in Vermont with that crazy father of
yours. We have such a great
family and good times were always a constant when everyone
came together. I hear about you
through my dad mostly and
occasional emails from your
mom. I hate to say it, but I see
a lot of myself in you. We both
took relatively similar paths in
our journey to join the service.
I’m not too sure about your dad’s
side, but as far as I’m concerned
we don’t come from a long lineage

We’re not like Lieutenant
Dan in Forrest Gump where his
Papi and his Grandpapi’s Papi
fought and died in every major
American conflict. No one told
us to do this. We just did. We
were always told by our families
to go to college, get a degree, find
a respectable job with decent pay,
and then raise a family. Military
service was never considered an
option, yet we felt this burning
desire to serve that we could never accurately explain to anyone.
I felt it coming out of high
school and into my first year of
college. I thought I wanted to
go to Marine Officer Candidate
School. I did my research and
when I sought advice from
friends and family I always got
the same answer. “Why would

hen I was a teenager
in the election year
of 1948, my elders
assured me this was the big one,
the year I would witness the
first election of a Republican
president in my 15-year lifetime. Thomas E. Dewey would
definitely replace the accidental
and terribly unpopular — at least
in our comfortable New Jersey
suburbs — Harry Truman.
On election night, I was earning a quarter an hour babysitting
the kids next door while their
parents and my parents and
virtually everyone else in the

up on the idea. I proceeded
throughout my second year of
college with no direction. I partied too much, grades started to
slack, I ran into the law a couple
times, and then one day I just had
enough of myself. I wanted more.
I dropped out and was ready to
enlist into the Army.
Then my cousin from my
mom’s side, an Iraq War veteran, convinced me to go another
route. He mentioned going
through officer training while
getting my degree. It sounded
good. Go back to school. Get it
paid for. Do the training. Graduate. Become an officer. Be able to
lead soldiers and fulfill my desire
to serve. Too easy, right? Wrong.
Next thing you know I’m filing
off a bus in Fort Knox, Ky., with a
handful of Drill Sergeants ready
to welcome me with “open arms.”
“What the hell did I get myself

during camp and is one I’m sure
you have said a couple of times
already during your brief stay at
the Great Lakes.

he mission of the Salisbury Housing Trust is
to promote affordable
home ownership in the Salisbury
towns. In the past 14 years, the
Housing Trust has built or renovated 12 homes, now owned
and occupied. We use a threefold
strategy: raising funds, primarily
through local donors; seeking
sites on which to build or homes
to renovate; and seeking qualified
applicants. The Housing Trust
subsidizes the homes, making
them affordable, and enters into a
contract with buyers to maintain
affordability when the homes
are resold.
We have been successful in
our mission to increase home
ownership. But we also recognize
the importance and need for additional affordable rental units in
Salisbury. Some individuals and

I would like to share a letter
written by my nephew, 2nd Lt.
Colin Crawford (age 24, U.S.
Army, home town — Houston,
Texas) to his cousin, Alec Lockhart (age 20, U.S. Navy, home
town — Newtown, Conn.) who
just recently began his military
career in October 2015 in Great
Lakes, Ill. Many family members
wrote letters of encouragement
and support during Alec’s boot
camp experience but none could
top what 2nd Lt. Colin Crawford had to share with his new
recruit cousin. I hope you find it
a worthwhile and inspirational
read. It speaks on many levels:
growth, maturity, persistence and
perseverance, attitude, and above
all, commitment no matter what
path one embarks on — some very
wise words.
We in their family are very
proud of these two and wholeheartedly thank all the men
and women serving to protect
this country and others in such
nefarious times. (Note: Alec excelled in his basic training and is
now stationed in South Carolina.
Congratulations, Alec!)

IF YOU ASK ME
DICK AHLES
neighborhood were attending a
Dewey victory party.
When the celebrants came
home, apparently too early to
hear Mr. Truman’s concession
speech, I was assured that the
farm vote was slow coming in and
Dewey would soon be declared
the winner.
Seven years later, working at
my first newspaper, I found the
elders in my new profession were
still wary, after 1948, of taking
anything in presidential politics
for granted.
We’re relearning that in 2016.
So before the year gets much
older, I must join many of my
fellow opinion expressers in
confessing what I got wrong so
far in the current election cycle.
It’s quite enough to fill a column.
Early on, there was my lonely
enthusiasm for the candidacy of
James Webb, as an alternative to
the impending coronation of Hillary Clinton. It was and still is the
result of my displeasure that the
Democrats would rig the nomination for Clinton by seeming to
limit the opposition to an elderly
Democratic candidate, who will
be 75 on Inauguration Day, just
happens to be a socialist, not the
brightest winning combo.
In December 2014, I wrote
glowingly of Webb, the former
Democratic senator, Reagan
cabinet member and talented
novelist:
“Seven months before the
second Iraq war began in 2003,
Webb warned we could be in
the region for 30 years and presciently noted, ‘The Iraqis are a
multiethnic people with competing factions who in many cases
would view a U.S. occupation as
infidels invading the cradle of
Islam. In Japan, American occupation forces quickly became
50,000 friends. In Iraq, they
would quickly become 50,000
terrorist targets.’”
As we approach the halfway
point in our 30-year Middle East
war, what in that statement has
been proven wrong and who

else — from either party — has
even broached it?
I still have a bit of hope for
the other long shot I praised in
that column, the not so successful end man on the Republican
debate stage, John Kasich.
Unlike the inexperienced
senatorial contenders, Cruz
and Rubio, Kasich has actually
governed a large and important
state and did so successfully amid
economic turmoil. After helping
President Clinton I balance the
budget in 1997, he retired from
Congress, worked on Wall Street
(nobody’s perfect) and became
governor in the 2008 election
as Bush prosperity was crashing
down. In his first term, all he did
was turn an $8 billion deficit
into a $1.5 billion surplus while
cutting the state income tax by
10 percent and taxes on small
businesses by 50 percent.
I did mention Kasich has had
two wives but only because my
other favorite, Webb, has been
married for 44 years — to three
wives. That, of course, only ties
a presidential candidate record
with Donald Trump, also married to three wives, but two thirds
of them were immigrants, and
Trump will eventually take credit
for that act of kindness.
But before we get to my
Trump mistake, I must confess
that before Trump’s debut, I erroneously wrote that Chris Christie’s gruff, Jersey Boy attitude and
style would never play south and
west of his side of the Hudson.
Christie has, of course, been a
stylistic Little Lord Fauntleroy
next to the boorish Trump.
As to Trump, I shared the conventional view that no sensible
American would consider a man
who offered bluster in the place
of serious discussion or offered
boasts like “We’re going to make
our military really, really strong”
without deigning to tell us how.
Maybe we’re suffering from a
shortage of sensible Americans,
but I still hope we’re not about
to confirm the old saw that “the
common people know what they
want and deserve to get it good
and hard.”

HIGH SCHOOL

Continued from Page A1

Continued from Page A1

PHOTO BY PATRICK L. SULLIVAN

The locker rooms at Housatonic Valley Regional High School will be upgraded this year.
They are no longer functional; the showers in the boys locker room are used as a meeting
space for the basketball team.
The breakdown, in order of
priority (highest to lowest)
• Boiler replacement, $300,000
(not eligible for grant money).
Herrick said the two boilers,
installed in 1989, have reached
the end of their useful life, and
emergency repairs were needed
prior to opening the school on
Monday, Jan. 4, after the winter
break.
• Oil tanks replacement
(state-mandated), $109,280.
This is not negotiable, Herrick
said. State law requires the tanks
be removed after 30 years, which
is 2017. There is a 10,000 gallon
tank by the Mahoney-Hewat
Science and Technology Center,
and a 20,000 gallon tank by the
loading dock.
• Roof, $591,580: The area to
be redone is 36,000 square feet
over the library’s media wing,
the Agricultural Education
department, the science wing,
the barn and the maintenance
garage. Herrick said the fauxslate shingles are “just sliding off
and breaking.” The company that
installed them in 1999 has since
gone out of business.
They will be replaced by
asphalt shingles that will match
the rest of the building.
• Science wing renovations,
$1,652,323.
The labs were built in 1962;
two were renovated in 1999.
These rooms have non-working
sinks, some of which are covered
up, and things like cabinets
need to be reconfigured per the
Americans with Disabilities Act
requirements. WiFi is inconsistent in the science lab, as are
heating and cooling.
In teacher Larry Peck’s room,
the temperature was comfortable, even a bit on the cool side.
But that had not always been the
case. A custodian had found an
overlooked valve and managed
to turn down the heat.
Peck said for the first time
in 18 years he was teaching in

long-sleeved shirts.
The final layout will be five
labs and one multi-use classroom.
• Fitness center and locker
room renovation, $1,639,329.
The locker rooms date to 1962
and — frankly — they look it.
In the girls locker room, the
shower room has curtains but the
showers don’t work. The students
use it as a changing room.
On the boys side, even the
shower curtains have been dispensed with. There are a couple
of whiteboards mounted on the
wall, and the basketball team uses
it as a meeting room.
In the tiny trainer’s office and
adjacent storage room behind the
gym, a visitors locker room will
be created.
To comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, an
elevator to the locker rooms
will be installed. A visitors locker room will be created in the
back of the gym, in the existing
trainer’s office and adjacent
storage room. (Earlier versions
of the plan envisioned adding
an addition to the gym, but that
was abandoned as a tough sell in
an era of declining enrollment.)
The football locker room and
office (which are 76 years old)
contain, in addition to elderly
lockers, still more non-functional shower heads, non-working laundry machines (an ice
machine conked out and was
removed) and innovative insect
control measures (a fly strip
attached to an improvised hook
made from a wire coat hanger).
The building committee’s initial plan also included renovating
the football locker room, but
the idea was scrapped because it
would add another $1 million to
the overall cost. (It would require
a second elevator, for starters.)
The current plan envisions using
the space for storage.
The fitness center’s machines,
though dated, are still functional,

but the space is tight and ventilation mostly theoretical. Macneil
said the atmosphere gets a little
close, especially on rain days
when teams can’t practice and
opt for weight training instead.
The plan calls for taking out
a wall and adding an adjacent
storage area to the fitness room,
for an extra 352 square feet, plus
ventilation measures.
Herrick will be meeting with
town school and finance boards
in the next few months to explain
the project in detail. He, along
with members of the building

predict that the percentage of

Paying out promised funds
The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) provides
funding for nearly every federal
land protection program outside
the Farm Bill. Instead of using
taxpayer dollars, the LWCF receives a portion of the revenues
collected on offshore oil and gas
installations and was intended as
a conservation offset for those
activities.
Authorized for a maximum
of $900 million, the LWCF has
rarely received more than a
fraction of that amount, which
in turn impacts funding for
the Forest Legacy Program and
Highlands Conservation Act,
both of which are critical sources of land protection funding
in northwest Connecticut. A
three-year reauthorization of
the LWCF, funded in fiscal 2016
at $450 million, represents an
increase of $144 million over the
previous appropriation.
A boost for Highlands Act
The 2004 Highlands Conservation Act (HCA) provides
funding for land protection
within portions of four adjacent
states, including 26 communities
in northwest Connecticut. Connecticut’s Department of Energy
and Environmental Protection
has received about $3 million
during the life of the HCA, leveraging more than $12 million
in matching state, municipal and
private funds to accomplish six
land protection projects with
partner land trusts during that
same period.
The HCA had been autho-

rized for a maximum of $10 million annually, but never before
this federal budget did it receive
the full appropriation. Connecticut’s share of those funds could
approach $3 million, equal to all
the Highlands funding received
in the previous decade.
What was lost
As with any large piece of
legislation, passage of the fiscal
2016 Omnibus Appropriations
Act required compromise and
concessions. Along with its
investments in land protection
and renewable energy, the new
budget also cleared the way for
American oil producers to export
on the world market. The current
worldwide oil glut reduces the
strategic imperative to restrict
U.S. oil for domestic use only,
and low demand also affects its
impact on atmospheric carbon;
but allowing oil exports proved
an environmental trade-off
necessary to get the final budget
passed.
“While far from perfect, the
year-end omnibus budget and
tax package was a win for environmental conservation in Connecticut and nationwide,” said
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D).
“The dedicated conservationists of Connecticut’s Northwest
Corner have done tremendous
work to protect the pristine
landscapes of the region, and
reauthorization of the Land and
Water Conservation Fund and
the permanent extension of the
conservation easement tax credits — two crucial and powerful
tools for conservation — will
greatly enhance and support
these vital ongoing efforts.”

THEATER: MARSDEN EPWORTH
‘The Music Man’

All It Takes Is Music, a Man and a Miracle

W

e learn from the
start that Professor Harold Hill is
a scoundrel. He gives traveling salesmen a bad name,
one of that tribe aboard a
train rattling through the
state of Iowa complains. Hill
comes to a town, creates
a boys’ band, sells instruments and uniforms and
skips before anyone discovers he knows nothing about
music.
And so Meredith Willson’s 1957 Tony Award-winning musical (beating out
the ground-breaking and
powerful “West Side Story”
for heaven’s sake) about
midwestern, small-town life
opens with the memorable
talk-song, “Rock Island,”
and a coach-full of salesmen
bouncing across the landscape, wondering where
their next dollar is coming
from.
Professor Hill knows,
of course. He’s heading for
River City, a town with lots
of kids.
This is terrain that director Michael Berkeley has
mined many times before.
A few years back, Berkeley,

a founder of TriArts and its
onetime artistic and music
director, was asked at an
audition how many children he planned to cast. “As
many as we can fit on the
stage,” he said. And once
again, Berkeley, along with
fellow director and choreographer Lori J. Belter, founder
of the Housatonic Musical
Theatre Society, has done
a great job casting a lot of
very well-rehearsed and tremendously engaged young
people (and concomitantly
filling the theater with lots
of parents and friends) for
this spirited and sometimes
touching production.
True to form, the professor, played, alas, by a rather
listless and disheveled
Christopher Gilbert, hits
town, gets word of the new
billiard parlor and arouses
anxieties about wayward
boys shooting pool, and
taking to using words like
“swell” and phrases like “so’s
your old man.”
Stirred by Hill’s promise
of “shimmering trumpets,”
various other instruments
such as euphoniums and
bassoons, as well as braided

uniforms and well-mannered youth, the parents of
River City buy in.
But oh, if only life were
that simple. The town’s
librarian and piano teacher
Marian Paroo, a spinster,
is suspicious. She is also
beautiful. And Amy LeBlanc
performs Willson’s gorgeous, sometimes wistful,
songs like an angel.
So Harold Hill is in
trouble. He may not know
a thing about music, but he
is a master manipulator of
human beings. He knows he
can divert trouble by turning school board members
into a barbershop quartet.
One note on the pitch pipe
and they are off and singing,
wonderfully in this case. But
Marian is another matter.
She has no time for this
fellow, and so the professor
must settle, in song at least,
for “the sadder but wiser
girl,” a Hester seeking “to
win just one more A.”
This is the thing about
“The Music Man.” It is wonderful in every way. Willson
wrote a witty, touching,
funny, clever musical (with,
incidentally, the most

unusual rhyme around:
Marian and carrion), and
the Centerstage production
at Rhinebeck’s Center for
Performing Arts has done
it right. The musical direction by Paul and Joanne
Schubert is spot on. The
sets are simple and charming, the costumes, lovely,
the dancing, good; and the
performances are wry when
they’re supposed to be and
open-hearted when it matters. Jamison Fountain is
fine as 8-year-old Winthrop,
the boy mourning the loss
of his dad; and Cindy Kubik
as Mrs. Paroo, his mother, is
spirited and touching. Most
everyone has done right
by this lovely show about
human nature and miracles
and, of course, romance.
“The Music Man,” based
on a story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey, with
book, music and lyrics by
Willson, runs at The Center
for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck through Jan. 31. For
tickets and information, go

ART SCENE: MARSDEN EPWORTH

A Varied and
Entertaining Show

I

t’s called a Winter
Warmer, The White
Gallery’s annual exhibit
of varied —very varied
— pieces by 17 artists. It
opened this week with
works by photographers
and painters.
It’s an unusual show.
“Every two weeks it’s
recurated, gallery owner Tino Galluzzo says. “I
add new pieces and move
them around to change it
up. And in a show like this
without a point of view,

you can mix abstract and
traditional work.”
And mix he does.
Most prominent on entering the gallery is Avery
Danziger’s very large and
starlit photograph of Jockey’s Ridge in North Carolina in the middle of the
night. The star streaks and
the glowing horizon speak
of a lengthy and expert
exposure. It’s a beautiful
scene.

THE OLDEST LIVING THINGS IN THE WORLD

Peter Landesman and Will Smith in Concussion.

MOVIE: PATRICK L. SULLIVAN
‘Concussion’

A Serious Matter
Needing Better
Treatment

J

ust in time for the
pro football playoffs
comes Peter Landesman’s “Concussion,”
starring Will Smith as Dr.
Bennet Omalu, a pathologist who identified
what is now known as
chronic traumatic encephalopathy in National
Football League players.
Omalu, a Nigerian,
has an uphill battle
with his coworkers and
colleagues, with the immensely powerful NFL
and with resentful fans.
The film starts promisingly enough, with
David Morse playing the
increasingly disturbed
Mike Webster, center for
the legendary Pittsburgh
Steelers teams of the
1970s. 
Webster is living in his
pickup truck, and is so
out of it he is yanking his
own teeth and glueing
them back in his mouth.
He dies, officially, of a
heart attack.
But Omalu orders a
full autopsy and eventually concludes that years
of collisions incurred
playing football had
damaged Webster’s
brain. He finds other
players with similar
conditions, publishes a
paper and that’s when
the trouble starts.
Along the way he
meets a young woman
from Kenya, falls in love,
gets married and starts
to build a house.
And the NFL pushes
back. 
Omalu’s boss is indicted on federal charges for
misusing his office. His
wife is stalked and loses

their first child. Omalu
loses his faith in the
American Dream, and
eventually takes a job in
California.
Only when another
ex-player, Dave Duerson, kills himself and
leaves a note asking that
his brain be examined
for CTE, does the dam
break to some extent,
and Omalu is somewhat
vindicated.
This is all good
material, and should
make for a compelling
film. But “Concussion”
is lifeless. Loose ends
abound. Is Prema OMalu
(Gugu Mbatha-Raw)
really being stalked by a
mysterious car, or is she
being paranoid? And
is that really enough to
cause problems with her
pregnancy?
Are the Feds acting
as proxies for the NFL?
Are the nasty phone calls
Omalu receives the work
of conspirators or of
individual nut cases? We
don’t know — and if
the film moved faster it
wouldn’t matter. But if a
film has a slow, deliberate pace, it better explain
everything — because
the audience has the
leisure time to wonder.
The net effect is,
ultimately, a dull and
somewhat preachy film.
The issue of concussions is a serious one. It
deserves a more forceful
treatment than this.
“Concussion” is rated
PG-13 for thematic
material including some
disturbing images, and
language.

A16 THE LAKEVILLE JOURNAL, Thursday, January 14, 2016

TELEVISION: DARRYL GANGLOFF
‘Making a Murderer’

TRI-CORNER CALENDAR
THE LAKEVILLE JOURNAL • THE MILLERTON NEWS • THE WINSTED JOURNAL

Hubris and a Flawed
Auditions
Justice System

I

spent New Year’s Day
binge-watching “Making
a Murderer” on Netflix.
Every time the credits rolled
on an episode of the 10part documentary series,
I watched the next one. By
the time it was over, I was
overwhelmed by anger,
frustration, sadness and the
desire to share this series
with others.
The documentary follows
Steven Avery, a Wisconsin
man who spent 18 years
in prison for a rape he did
not commit. DNA evidence
led to his exoneration in
2003, when he became a
free man. In 2005, while
filing a $36 million lawsuit
against Manitowoc County
for wrongful imprisonment,
he was charged with the
murder of Teresa Halbach,
a photographer who visited
the Avery family’s salvage
yard to photograph a minivan for Auto Trader magazine. Avery’s 16-year-old
nephew, Brendan Dassey,
was also charged with participating in the murder.
“Making a Murderer,”
which was filmed over a
period of 10 years, is filled
with courtroom footage,
recorded phone calls from
prison and intimate interviews with the Avery family.
Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos read
about Avery’s case in The
New York Times in November 2005 and headed out
to Wisconsin to attend his
preliminary hearing. They
ultimately moved there to
follow every development
as it occurred in real time.
They followed the trials of
Avery and Dassey, as well
as the aftermath of the
verdicts. Even though the
verdicts are a decade old, I
will avoid stating them here.
For those of you who don’t
know how the story unfolds,
hearing the juries reach
their decisions is incredibly
powerful.
If there wasn’t undeniable proof that these trials
occurred, I would swear
that “Making a Murderer”
was a scripted, serialized
courtroom drama. There are
shocking and heartbreaking

“Our question
going in was
never about guilt
or innocence or
about trying to
solve this crime.”
twists and turns throughout
every hour-long episode
that will leave viewers
asking countless questions:
Why did the Manitowoc
County sheriff ’s department
participate in the murder
investigation, despite the
clear conflict of interest?
Did the police plant evidence to frame Avery? Was
Dassey’s confession coerced?
“Our question going in
was never about guilt or
innocence or about trying
to solve this crime. It was really an exploration into the
system,” Demos told CBS
News. This is an important
distinction to make. As you
watch “Making a Murderer,”
you’ll likely find yourself
attempting to assign guilt
or innocence to Avery and
Dassey. Perhaps you’ll question whether the series is
biased toward Avery, since
it focuses so much on his
family. Former Wisconsin
state prosecutor Ken Kratz
told People magazine that
the series left out key pieces
of evidence;  in response,
Ricciardi made a statement
to The Wrap, a website, that
“we stand by the project
we did. It is thorough. It is
accurate. It is fair. That is
why it took us 10 years to
produce it.”
In any case, “Making a
Murderer” shows a flawed
legal system. Dean Strang,
a sensible defense lawyer
for Avery, says it best: “Most
of what ails our criminal
justice system lies in unwarranted certitude on the part
of police officers and prosecutors and defense lawyers
and judges and jurors that
they’re getting it right. That
they are simply right. Just a
tragic lack of humility of everyone who participates in
our criminal justice system.”

Photographer Tom
Zetterstrom is a newcomer
to the gallery and his trees
in black and white are very
fine.
Nearby hangs a lovely
painted abstract by Sarah
Martinez: patches of lime
and purple and pink on a
white back.
And further, “Mount
Pleasant,” a traditional red
barn in the snow painted
by Janet Iffland. “We like
her barns and landscapes,”
Galluzzo said, referring to
himself and his wife Susan,
co-owner of the gallery.
For simplicity and serenity, Francis Ashforth’s
“Tidal Inlet 5” in sand and
pale blue is arresting. And
Deborah Losada’s “Provisional Visibility,” a sleakly
defined red bar dissolving
into smoke always impresses viewers, Galluzzo said.
One year, shortly after
opening the gallery, Galluzzo said, he closed it for the
winter. “It bothered me,” he
said. “Never again. This is a

community gallery. People
come in to get warm. They
give me feedback. It’s good.”

Post Office on Main Street, is
