Crowd of politicians, including governor hopefuls, lead parade
One of the hallmarks of being an American citizen is the right to vote. It’s one of the things we remember every summer during the 4th of July, when we celebrate the country’s independence. It was also certainly on the mind of Duxbury residents as wave after wave of politicians passed by during the 4th of July parade.

Local author explores ancestor’s journal
The story of “Annie Ricketson’s Journal” chronicles the journey of a whaling boat captain’s wife as she follows her husband around the world on his ship. But for Laura Doherty, Ricketson’s ancestor, writing the book was a journey of her own. Doherty has experience as a journalist and non-fiction writer, and she’s always known about her nautical ancestors on her father’s side, although she didn’t know what particular industry they were involved in. She remembers going to the New Bedford Whaling Museum and seeing the Ricketson name hanging on many walls. Eventually she learned of Annie Ricketson, a woman who defied the Victorian norms and accompanied her husband on his whaling ship. (Many sailors of the time believed a woman on a ship was bad luck.) “I have wanted to write this book for years and years,” she said. Doherty learned of the existence of a journal Ricketson kept on one of her voyages (she believes there may have been more than one) and eventually tracked the book down at a whaling museum in Sharon, of all places, that was being closed down. She also did research at a library in New Bedford that is attached to the Whaling Museum. She said she thought of the work like a job, getting up in the morning and working until night. Daniel Ricketson, Annie’s husband, was a sailor who eventually worked his way up from being a hired boy on a ship to a captain. The journal captures a trip the couple took in 1871, at a time when New Bedford was still the whaling capital of the world, but its influence was starting to wane.
By Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

A woman whaler’s tale

The non-fiction book “Annie Ricketson’s Journal” by Laura Ricketson Doherty is available at Westwinds Bookshop and online at heritagebooks.com

“It was very unusual,” Doherty said of Annie Ricketson accompanying her husband. “Women did it, but it wasn’t exactly accepted.” The journey took 3 1/2 years, and the reader follows it all through the eyes of Annie as she deals with heartache (she was pregnant on the trip, but once the baby was born it only lived a few days), joy (dancing with native people in faraway lands) and the boredom that could accompany long days at sea with little human contact. “She was always very much in demand,” Doherty said of Ricketson’s popularity on the ship and with other captains. “I’ve got a feeling she was a very attractive personality.” Doherty, who admitted she didn’t know much about whaling before she started work on the book, dug into the research with aplomb. About four years ago, she brought the work to a writers group at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, where she works. “Everybody in the group thought it was such a wonderful love story,” she said. The other writers in the group con-

vinced her to try reworking the novel as a historical fiction. Fiction was a bit outside Doherty’s comfort zone as a writer, but she gave it a try. “It was very difficult for me, but I did it,” she said. Once finished, she started shopping the manuscript to publishers, only to receive a string of rejections. One of the publishers, however, Heritage Books, showed some interest in the manuscript –– but as a work of non-fiction. So once again, Doherty dove into her story to rework it. The book emerged in its final form, and it was recently published for the first time. Doherty used the journal and Ricketson’s own words as the spine of her book, then used her research to fill in the details. She says Ricketson’s writing isn’t always personal, rather a narrative of the events at sea. However, there are moments in the journal when Ricketson’s personality shines through. “Even in the ugliness of trying out the whales, she finds beauty in it ... she loved what she was doing, she was a very optimistic person,” said Doherty. The only time Ricketson really seemed fearful, Doherty said, was when she was writing about the boat being surrounded by hostile natives while the captain was away hunting a whale. She learned to fire a gun after that –– something few Victorian women likely knew how to do. “I’ve always thought of Victorian ladies as sitting around on overstuffed chairs, drinking tea,” Doherty said. “But she was an adventurer, really ... I think it shows an era in history that people should know about. Women didn’t always sit and wait. “Annie Ricketson’s Journal” by Laura Doherty is available at Westwinds Bookshop, amazon.com and heritagebooks.com.

Petey 1986-2010
It is with great sadness that Dr. Bruce Berridge and the entire staff at Duxbury Animal Hospital announce the passing of our beloved hospital mascot, Petey, to multiple myeloma. Petey came into our lives 14 years ago, after being hit by a car. His broken leg was repaired, but his owner chose to abandon him, and the rest is history. Petey quickly won over everyone’s hearts. He proved to be quite a character - jumping into the open doors of clients’ cars when they were coming in to purchase pet foods, rubbing himself up against dogs that were sitting in our waiting room (of course, the bigger the dog, the more challenging it was for Petey), and numerous other events. Petey’s handsome face will continue to grace our website, and his wonderful spirit will remain with us forever.

Because chiropractors are experienced in treating musculoskeletal problems, they are quite familiar with the injuries that afflict runners. Chief among these are knee injuries, which are often mechanical in nature. Chiropractors assess everything from the wear on a runner’s shoes to leg-length discrepancies when seeking to uncover the source of these problems and correct them. When the common problem of plantar fasciitis (acute pain in the middle and rear of the heel) arises, the chiropractor is likely to undertake an imagery study to determine if tendons have calcified to cause heel spurs. Runners may also turn to chiropractic for treatment of Achilles tendonitis, abnormal pronation, sciatica, stress fractures, and iliotibial band syndrome. Chiropractic offers many benefits for one’s general health and well-being. Call LALONDE CHIROPRACTIC SPINE CENTER OF NEW ENGLAND at (781) 934-0943, or visit us at 42 Tremont St., Suite 10B (Rt 3A at Rt 3). Our clinic stresses maintenance and prevention as well as treatment. Come to us for auto accident and work-related injuries. Find relief from chronic pain, sports injuries, or stress, and improve your overall health with Cox® Technic that works with the body’s natural design to aid it in healing. P.S. Because it shares many of the same symptoms, iliotibial band syndrome is often mistaken for sciatica.

The parade always has its fair share of politicians, who are usually at the back of the parade pack. But this year being an election year, and with contested races for governor, Congress, state senator and state representative, 18 politicians and their camps marched at the parade’s head, handing out candy, balloons and stickers to the crowd while sweating through their suits. Parade Committee CoChairman Rich Potash said he thought the number of politicians was the most the parade has seen in a while, although there are always more during an election year. “There’s a lot of uncertainty,” Potash said, referring to the number of contested races and the rocky political landscape in the state. With so many tight races, once one candidate committed to the parade, others followed suit. He also said the prestige of the Duxbury parade may have helped attract candidates for the bigger offices like governor and U.S. Congress. “It’s the second longest running parade in the United States,” he said. With all the candidates reaching into the crowd to shake hands and schmooze, some parade volunteers were worried about the pace of the longer-than-usual parade slowing to a crawl. But committee members on bikes and rollerblades kept things moving. “We had requested that they limit the number of people they bring,” Potash said. The 4th of July parade has a strict hierarchy that is closely followed every year. Retired and active servicemen and woman always go first, and when it comes to the politicians, incumbents lead the way, followed by candidates in order of importance of office. “You need to respect that order,” Potash said. This year, the parade was led by Lt. Governor Tim Murray, acting as a stand-in for Governor Deval Patrick. Murray, who participated in multiple parades in the 90-plus degree heat over the weekend, was actually briefly hospitalized after all that marching, according to The Boston Globe. Following him were other gubernatorial candidates Tim Cahill, the current state treasurer running as an independent, and Republican hopeful Charlie Baker. Following them were Duxbury current State Senator Robert Hedlund and State Representative Daniel Webster, as well as their respective challengers, Paul Robert Kearney and Duxbury native Josh Cutler.

3rd: Interfaith Council Margery Parcher Cup The Mutkoski family: For their spirit of the 4th, we thank them for their many years of family participation in the parade.

The recent decision by longtime Congressman Bill Delahunt not to seek re-election opened up the 10th district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, and candidates Bill Keating, Jeff Perry, Ray Kasperowicz, Rob O’Leary and Joe Malone all came to Duxbury. Malone was the last of the politicians marching and eschewed the shirt and tie of many of his fellow candidates for a more relaxed looking polo and shorts. When an onlooker asked him where his shirt and tie was, Malone jokingly shot back: “When in Duxbury, do as the Duxburians!” Overall, Potash was happy with the flow of the parade, as well as the high turnout of crowds lining Washington Street from Hall’s Corner to St. George Street. Twelve floats participated

in the parade under the theme of “American Pastimes,” which Potash believes afforded more creativity than past themes. “It really opened things up,” he said. The parade’s highest award, the Margery Parcher Cup, went to the Mutkoski family. The Mutkoski’s float was a tribute to the American tradition of a family road trip, but they also have participated in the parade for many years.

o, I’m not trying to alienate animal rights advocates with this headline. My objective is to call your attention to a straightforward and achievable proposal which could reduce greenhouse gases and provide needed temporary employment. My proposal is to use bicycles for short-distance commuting and daily trips instead of cars, and for the Federal Government to jump start this change by providing funding for bike lanes. Every gallon of gas you burn in your car discharges 19.6 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air. So, if you drive an average passenger car (which gets 22.4 miles per gallon) you are dumping almost a pound of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every mile you travel. By leaving your car in the driveway and riding your bike you can reduce that carbon dioxide discharge to zero. When you hop on your bike you’ll slash your use of and dependence on oil. You will also be getting the exercise you need to become healthier, without mind numbing time on a treadmill or (yikes) a stationary bicycle. Have I closed the sale yet? Changing from a car to a bicycle for short trips is not another pie in the sky scheme. Take note that the average round trip length is only 9.94 miles (per the most recent NHTS Survey of Travel Trends). That makes the average one way distance less than five miles, an easy 20-30 minute bike ride. While converting from cars to bicycles for brief trips to daily destinations seems like a slam dunk decision, there is one improvement, easily accomplished, which would make the transition easier, safer and more pleasant. It is a network of bike lanes on town and city streets and secondary roads. Secondary roads which have relatively low auto traffic volume already connect most of the places we want to go to and from. Often these are old state roads which have been supplanted for high speed travel by highways, thruways and turnpikes. Striped bike lanes identified by stenciled bike symbols on the shoulder pavement, and occasional signs, could provide an additional level of safety and confidence for bicyclists. Bike lanes should be five feet wide but they can be as narrow as four feet and still work effectively. Where existing roads are wide enough, bike lanes can be created my merely adding the striping at the outside of car traffic lanes. On slightly narrower roads it may be necessary to slim down the car traffic lanes to gain the needed width. Narrowing car lanes brings the immediate benefit to residential districts of “calming” trafficslowing it down. In other situations where the existing pavement is too narrow to accommodate both bikes and cars, it may be necessary to widen the road. Fortunately, on many existing state and municipal roads and streets the existing right-of-way is wide enough to accomplish this without incursion on to abutting property. The cost of striping and marking bike lanes and adding signs is modest, typically no more than 50-60 cents a foot or less than $3,000 a mile. Another easy, quick and relatively inexpensive safety improvement is the installation of bike racks at frequented destinations. Racks for five to nine bikes typically cost only $80 to $150 each. The tools to cut our oil dependency, reduce our carbon imprint and improve our health are clearly at hand. What we need now is a modest federal program to provide financial incentive to states, cities and towns to stripe bike lanes and provide bike lane signs and bike racks. Such a program could quickly provide short term employment for some who are waiting to be reemployed in the slowly recovering economy. This proposal is practical and doable, but it will need your support to get done. It will take less than 10 minutes to send one line e-mails to your congressmen urging them to appropriate funds for bike lanes with signs and bike racks to reduce oil dependency, reduce greenhouse gases and improve health. Send your e-mails to: Senator John Kerry: http://kerry.senate.gov/contact Senator Scott Brown: http://scottbrown.senate.gov/public/ index.cfm/contactme Representative Bill Delahunt: http://delahunt.house.gov/ contact/email-me.shtml And, when you’re with friends and new acquaintances, talk it up! There is nothing as infectious as a good idea whose time has come.

Q. I backwashed my sand filter daily, but my water is still hazy. Any suggestions? A. First of all, you should not backwash daily. A sand filter needs a tight sand bed to filter properly. Backwashing too often keeps the sand bed too loose. In addition, you can use a filter aid (like our "Sparkle Up") occasionally to help remove the tiny particles of dust, pollen, dirt, algae, etc.

A magical night of scholarship winners
e need to share our good news with you! Our Duxbury Thrift Shop has broken all of our past records of DHS scholarships. Our volunteers are excited and proud to have exceeded our wildest dreams. Our awards total this year was $52,000, which was presented to 40 graduates on DuxBurY THriFT SHoP NeWS June 2. Enthusiasm, hard work, and commitment from our wonderful volunteers made the 2010 Awards Night a memorable evening. We often were faced with sickness, family needs and vacations (planned or not) that slowed down our streamlined work force but, thankfully, there were willing ladies who rose to the cause and volunteered two (and sometimes three) extra days during the week to fill in the gaps. We owe them our grateful appreciation. Below are the names of all the recipients, known only to us throughout the process by identification numbers. On Awards Night, we finally met them by name ... a complete surprise to both us and them: Adam Alzaim, Michael Bernard, Michael Clacherty, Nicholas Cline, Arielle Clough, Connor Croteau, Micaela Crowley (in memory of June Wyman), Brendan Davidson, Krista Devellis, Geoffrey DeWolf, Jonathan Dixon (in memory of Julie Duffy),William Dixon, Brady Doyle, Michael Doyle, Timothy Donoghue, Amber Driscoll, Nicholas Garofalo, Morgan Gould, Rima Hecker, William Holt, Benjamin Kimball, Christopher Kimball, Darci Lake, Caroline Listernick (in memory of Beatrice Chase), Patrick Miller, Carter Miller (also in memory of Donald Moors), Nicholas Mulone, Erin Nelson, Meghan Nelson, Lance O’Donovan, Christina Padule (Larry Cantwell Scholarship), Emma Segalla, Allyson Shamma, Michelle Simons, Christian Strand, Anthony Umbrianna, Danielle Walsh (in memory of Marge LeGrande), Laura Walter, and Benjamin White. Our racks are brimming with summer clothing for ladies, men, and children, as well as bric-a-brac, accessories, books and jewelry. We would like to highlight our children’s section of newborn sizes up to juniors, full of a stylish assortment of name brands and colors. We invite mothers and grandmothers to come in and look them over.

4th of July parade goes off with a bang

girls toss candy out to the crowd as the group of floats and politicans wind their way down Washington Street.

The judges carefully examine each band, float and marching group from their post on Washington Street, near the mid-point of the parade route.

This crew from Washington Street had a clever contraption on their clambake-themed float, a giant clam that shot candy into the crowd.

Flag bearers from the Duxbury Police Department march down Washington Street at the head of the 4th of July parade.

Bagpipe players with the Colonial Pipers play as they march past the town green.

Pat Flynn paddles a kayak behind the DhS Drama float. Selectmen Christopher Donato, Shawn Dahlen (blowing a kiss to the crowd) and Betsy Sullivan walk away from hall’s Corner during the start of the parade.

This unicycle juggler was impressing the onlookers near Water Street.

It was a beach party (complete with faux-bonfire) on the Duxbury high School Drama float.

The Duxbury Free Library’s Bookmarks club focused on the theme of American Pastimes and chose to represent the classic American road trip.

The York Lions Steel Drum Band, all the way from Ontario, Canada, was a fun addition to this year’s parade.

A girl tosses candy out the window of a fire engine at the start of the parade. The Mutkoski family, shown here in their road trip-themed float, were honored by the judges with the Margery Parcher Cup for their consistent participation in the parade.

The South Shore Bay Band performs as their flatbed float cruises down the street. Mike Doyle, Kaley Rudicus, Jane Dudley and Rachel Myette wave to the crowd from the Duxbury Youth hockey float.

The folks at the Ride Phat/Duxbury Student Union float had the right idea on the 90-plus degree day, handing out slushies to a parched crowd.

The Tarkiln Community Center’s float contained a replica of the iconic two-room schoolhouse on Route 58.

ow that the barbecue grills are cooling, the neighbors have all left and the 4th of July parties are over, it’s time to take a moment to reflect on the real reasons behind the holiday. If you haven’t already read them, head down to Westwinds and pick up a copy of one of David McCullough’s fine books about the founding fathers. McCullough has penned many a page about these men, but it’s because they, and in turn the story of our country’s founding, is so fascinating. Americans have the market cornered on taking things for granted. It’s easy to forget how fragile the founding of this country really was. It was only the convergence of great minds like Franklin, Adams and Jefferson that led to “the great experiment,” a truly unique republic that’s set the standard for personal freedom and liberty for over two hundred years. And apologies to the seemingly dozens of candidates marching in Sunday’s parade, but today’s politicians just don’t seem up to snuff. We can only hope that somewhere out there, there’s another Jefferson or Adams, someone with the intelligence, courage and patriotism to take this country to new heights. Soapbox statements aside, however, this past weekend really was a fun party. From the music on Friday and Saturday, to the parade on Sunday, it’s always a classic Duxbury weekend and one of the highlights of the year. That kind of planning doesn’t happen by accident. So if you see Rich Potash, Katy Gaenicke, Maggie Kearney, Bill Kearney, Barbara Munsey, Dave Robinson, Sue Lawrence, Don Reed, Joan Edgar, Stuart Ruggles, Connie Dennis, Nancy Reed, Rob Ali, Linda Robinson, Amy Hill, Janet Ritch, Walter Osborne, Jeff Goldman, Terry Reiber, Jamie MacNab, Terri Woodward or Brian Hill around town, please stop and thank them for the tremendous amount of work they do behind the scenes to make Duxbury’s 4th of July weekend a success. –– J. Graeber


Thanks for a fabulous 4th

his was the easiest and driest Newport to Bermuda race in my last six trips,” said Shawn Dahlen, owner and skipper of “Attitude,” a Beneteau 423. The Newport to Bermuda Race is a biennial yacht competition from Newport to Bermuda covering 635 miles of open ocean, if you’re able or want to go in a straight line from the start to Bermuda. Often, boats travel 750 miles or more in search of the fastest way to Bermuda. This year 185 boats of all types participated in 16 classes. Attitude’s Duxbury team consisted of Andre Martecchini, Keith Fotta, Ed Mayo, Terry Watson and Sandy von Stackelberg. The crew was broken into three groups of two each who stood 3 1/2 hour watches with seven hours off. There were three other Duxbury participants in the race on other boats: Richard Blatterman, Chris Decollibus and Bill Walker. The shortest distance between the start and finish is called the rhumb line and basically that is what Attitude’s strategy was this year, based on the estimated position of Gulf Stream’s eddies. The Gulf Stream is the body of warmer water that flows basically southwest to northeast, bisecting the course to Bermuda. There are also warm water and cold water eddies that spin off the Gulf Stream and “me-

anders” that temporary alter the traditional flow of the Gulf Stream. The challenge in sailing to Bermuda is to use the positive currents and eddies of the Gulf Stream to your advantage, which can some times add as much as four knots to your speed, while avoiding the negative ones. Outside paid services provide both the weather and forecasted locations of where to pick up these currents and where to exit them. However no paid services, only public domain information, can be used after the start of the race.

We later learned that if our course to the entry is off by just a few miles, right or left of your track, one can be set by a two-knot current, where a competitor may be gaining a two-knot advantage. More on this later. The starting gun for our class was in the afternoon of Friday June 18 where we sailed for the “entry point” of a warm water eddy that should have given us an additional 1 1/2 knots of speed. We arrived at that Gulf Stream entry point on Saturday and rode the eddy. After three days with 14-16

knot winds on Monday morning we exited the Gulf Stream and redirected our course of 230 miles to Bermuda. We arrived on Wednesday at midday. Provisioning for our race was done by one of the crew’s wives, who after doing it for a few years, knows what is easy to prepare en route. We ate frozen dinners, sandwiches, fruit, lots of water, salsa and chips and even frozen Twix! Part of the fun of arriving in Bermuda is to discuss with one’s competitors the

interactive displays, rare books, and maps. You just can’t imagine.” I asked what her favorite thing was about the trip. “I really don’t do favorites,” she charmingly replied. “All of it was my favorite.” At 16, she’ll be a junior at Duxbury High School, with primary interests in art and writing. Writing sounds right to me. Good writers love to read. Her mom told me that this was actually Alex’s second trip away from home. She went to Italy last year with the DHS group, so this was relatively easy. Chris Kimball, 18, graduated from DHS this year, and will go to UMass Amherst this fall, where he’ll major in English. He also visited the Library of Congress. “It was beautiful,” he said. “It captured the ideal of the preservation and the cherishing of knowledge. It was like a palace.” English major sounds right to me. Chris speaks well. Both kids said the presentation made by Ellen and the group was very well received. Two other programs shared the 8 a.m. workshop, with an audience of about 40, but ours was the only one that brought a contingent of kids along. The last two Clippers have covered the Bookmarks already, including Clipper Intern Luke Cronin’s in-depth piece last week about Ellen’s extension of the program to a middle school age group. I won’t pretend that I read the book Ellen lent me (Socrates Café, by Christopher Philips, Ellen’s inspiration for the group). I did cast sufficient counter-spells on my reluctant laptop to watch the Youtube videos posted by the group. Look for “Duxbury teen book club ALA pres 1,” then surf to the second and third videos. Your kids, like mine, can show you how. You can watch Chris, Alex and the others in action, along with Ellen’s Socratic questioning. It’s a powerful thing that Ellen and chaperone Sue Clark (Bookmark member Maddy Clark’s mother) brought 14 young people to the conference, and not just a PowerPoint presentation, though Alex explained that Ellen had that, too. Reading for pleasure, without scholastic pressure, may be the highest form of education. The Bookmarks and the new middle school-aged Philosophy Club add venues where kids can share those joys with others – like-minded or different-minded – based on their own fertile interests. Alex laughed when I asked her about the head count at the end of the trip (it matched). “They counted us all the time,” she said. “We each had a number, but sometimes we’d switch, so they got all confused.” Smart alecks, but in true Bookmarks style, no one was left behind.

Marion to Bermuda on a boat

many strategies used and, of course, having a few “dark and stormies,” which originated on the island. Note they are a well-deserved treat after 4-5 days of serious sailing, when attention to detail would prohibit any alcoholic consumption aboard. Though Attitude did not encounter any rain, some of our competitors ran into 30 knot squalls, which helped them on their way. Over our entire trip the winds ranged from 3 to 26 knots, seas were glassy to eight foot swells. Some comments by the

crew were as follows: Ed Mayo – (his third Bermuda race,) each race is different, sometimes it takes two days to get to the Gulf Stream, previously only 12 hours; Andre Martecchini – (his fourth) this has been the most uneventful trip, but he saw many pods of dolphins and whales; Keith Fotta – (five trips) this was one of the fastest trips he ever made in great sailing conditions; Terry Watson – amazingly calm and smooth to the point where seven-knot speed felt like five! Attitude was able to hold

off four larger boats over the very last 15 miles to the finish line. We finished sixth out of seven in our class, but all of the boats in our class were so close that if we had just shaved an hour off our finish time in roughly 80 hours, we would have landed in the top three. That is why planning a course to use the Gulf Stream and eddies to your advantage is so important. On corrected time, Attitude finished 24 of 38 boats in the cruising class. We obviously aim to do better next year in the 2011 Marion Bermuda Race.

SHARING THE PODIUM: Duxbury’s Jimmy Bunnell won his age group at the Cohasset Triathalon on June 27, with Senator Scott Brown (pictured at left) taking third place.

Art workshop for teens

Registration is required at 781-934-6634.

Ryan Stuhr, a 7th grader at Duxbury Middle School, won the 42nd Annual Trusted Choice Big “I” Junior Classic Golf Tournament for the 12-13 years Boys category. The tournament was held at the Thorny Lea Golf Club on June 23. The 18-hole course was originally designed by Donald Ross.

Nick Kale (DHS ‘05) recently competed in the Asian Grand Prix Archery Tournament in Taipei, Taiwan, as a member of the USA Archery Team. The tournament is organized by the Chinese Taipei Archery Association and has over 25 countries attending the event competing for world ranking. Kale is a resident athlete at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif.

Grant Inglis, DHS 2007, pictured at left, placed second in the Madeira Centennial Criterium Category 4/5 race. He and another rider broke early on in the 40 minute race and held a two man break the remainder of the race. A third rider bridged up to them and, after sitting in for five laps, went over the top to solo the victory. Grant had the legs to outsprint his break-mate for second on the line.

This section applies to all Community-Scale Wind Facilities proposed to be constructed after the effective date of this section. It shall apply to any size turbines, regardless of rated nameplate capacity. Any new Community-Scale Wind Facility or physical modifications to existing Community-Scale Wind Facilities that materially alters the type or increases the size of such facilities or other equipment shall require a special permit processed in accordance with this section. Community-Scale Wind Facilities shall be constructed only in the Publicly Owned Land Overlay District (POLOD) and exclusive of the Dunes Protection District and the Wetlands Protection Overlay District. 616.2 Definitions Community-Scale Wind Facility: A Community-Scale Wind Facility is a Wind Facility where the primary use of the facility is to generate electrical power for use by the Town, inclusive of all equipment, machinery and structures utilized in connection with the conversion of wind energy to electricity. This includes, but is not limited to, transmission, storage, collection and supply equipment, substations, transformers, service and access roads, and one or more Wind Facility. Height: When referring to

Legal Notices
a Community-Scale Wind Facility, the height of a Wind Facility will be measured from natural grade to the tip of the rotor blade at its highest point. Nacelle: The housing around the electrical generator and other systems such as gearboxes and blade controls on a wind turbine. The rotor blades are typically connected to the nacelle. Rated Nameplate Capacity: The maximum rated output of electric power production equipment. This output is typically specified by the manufacturer with a “nameplate” on the equipment. Setback: The distance from the base of the Community-Scale Wind Facility tower, measured from the centerline of the Community-Scale Wind Facility tower, to the nearest property line. Special Permit Granting Authority: The Special Permit Granting Authority shall be the Planning Board. Wind Monitoring or Meteorological Tower: A temporary tower (Met. Tower) equipped with devices to measure wind speeds and direction used to determine how much wind power a site can be expected to generate. Wind Facility: A wind turbine device that converts kinetic wind energy into rotational energy that drives an electrical generator. A Wind Facility typically consists of a tower, nacelle body at the top of the tower, and a rotor with two or more blades, also known as a HorizontalAxis Wind Turbine configuration. However, a Wind Facility could also consist of a Vertical-Axis Wind Turbine configuration. (Refer to Wind Turbine Configurations diagram 616.2a below.) Diagram 616.2a
