Community pulls together to deal with snowstorm aftermath

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — Town officials and business owners scrambled to provide services after an unusual autumn snowstorm dumped well over a foot of heavy, wet snow and knocked power out for the entire town Saturday, Oct. 29.
LaBonne’s Market was ready for the storm, with a rented generator arriving just in time on Saturday. Store director Rich Stomski said the diesel generator was in place Saturday evening, and the store was open for business as usual — including the use of debit and credit cards.
The store also had an urn of free, hot coffee at the entrance, for warming-up purposes.

Movies in a Halloween spirit on Oct. 30

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — Fans of classic horror films have a terrific double bill Sunday, Oct. 30, at the Scoville Memorial Library, with “The Thing from Another World” (1951) and “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” (1954).
In “The Thing,” a flying saucer crashes in the Arctic not too far from an American station, and it turns out that the pilot is a large, bulletproof, bloodsucking alien fiend.
It’s sometimes instructive to go back to contemporary reviews, and Bosley Crowther of The New York Times perhaps stumbled on the essential subtext of “the Thing” when he wrote:

SALISBURY — Ariana Castagna, winner of the Superintendent Award this year for Salisbury Central School, spent a large part of last summer in the clouds.

Well, almost. Thanks to the John Austin Cheley Foundation, Ariana was able to achieve the summits of not one but two Colorado peaks: Democrat and Columbia.

The latter took a week from the start at the base to the top.

Ariana, 13, is an avid reader, preferring science fiction. She plays soccer, basketball, softball and swims for Salisbury Central.

She also plays the clarinet.

Salisbury Forum Nov. 4: God is dead? Maybe not

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Forum speaker series continues Friday, Nov. 4, with Anthony T. Kronman, a former dean of the Yale Law School, on “The Humanities in the Age of Disenchantment.”
In a phone interview this week, Kronman said his talk would be provocative.
American colleges and universities used to have a religious affiliation. Until relatively recently, “There was a close connection between the ideals of liberal education in America as traditionally understood and a presumed religious background in higher education.”

Created by designers Robert Bristow and Pilar Proffitt for themselves and their three young children, the kitchen is an inviting mix of very intellectual and cool — and very accessible. This is a kitchen that tempts you to touch all the surfaces.
