Salisbury

SALISBURY — Chris George, executive director of Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS) in New Haven, said that the U.S. government’s vetting process for refugees is the “most rigorous” in the world.

George spoke to an audience at the Scoville Memorial Library in Salisbury on Saturday, April 13.

Repairs and classic muscle cars

asherp@lakevillejournal.com

LIME ROCK — Northwest Classic Cars is not your typical used car shop. For starters, the showroom sits right across the street from Lime Rock Park, making it very convenient for race fans to stop by between heats.
“I may not get a lot of business from people who walk in from the track, but I get a lot of word of mouth referrals from it,” said owner Christopher Little. “People come in and see the type of operation we run, the mechanical skills Rick [the maintenance manager] has and all the equipment we have, the quality of cars we have, they spread the word.”

tarak@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — According to www.arabhorse.com, the Arabian Horse Network website, there are only two Arabian breeding farms in Connecticut, two in New York state and none in Massachusetts. In a region thick with equines this may seem a little surprising. But while the Arabian horse may be for many iconic — think flowing mane and tail, flared nostrils, high-stepping gait — its popularity as an all-round equine partner is still building.

40 Cows for Peace: bucolic artwork by Jo Ann O’Rear spired

LAKEVILLE — The Northwest Corner is often described as bucolic, with rolling pastures full of big-eyed cows.
Lakeville artist Jo Ann O’Rear, inspired by those gentle beasts, has set out to capture their peaceful essence.
The idea took hold of her in late April, when a few of O’Rear’s pieces were featured in an art show in New York City.

Trinity walks are sometimes chatty, sometimes quiet

LIME ROCK — Trinity Lime Rock’s website offers “Companionship Along the Way,” and last Friday Geoff Brown, Alexis Dorf and Vicar Heidi Truax met in the parking lot at 8 a.m. for their weekly Friday walk.
Jupiter the dog provided additional companionship, and the way was Dugway Road.
Truax explained, as the group moved out, that sometimes the group discusses church business on the walks. Other times it works out as a sort of walking meditation.
In any event, the idea is to keep moving. “We think better, talk better,” said Truax.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — A team of volunteers from Habitat for Humanity took three truckloads of old carpet and other detritus to the transfer station, preparing the little green house at 25 Academy St. for use as affordable housing.
The work began Friday, Aug. 19, under the supervision of contractor and landscape architect Rick Bette of Goshen.
Bette has been involved with Habitat for two years, he guessed. He joined up after meeting John Pogue, whom he referred to as “Mr. Habitat.”
“He has a way of finding people,” said Bette, an amiable man with a quick grin.

Reunion of old friends with Kennedy ties

LAKEVILLE— Nancy Tuckerman and Jack Walsh reconnected last Friday for the first time in 36 years.
The two had met in the White House during the Kennedy administration, when Tuckerman was the first lady’s social secretary and Walsh was the Secret Service agent assigned to care for John F. Kennedy Jr.
Tuckerman, a longtime Salisbury resident, was a childhood friend of Jacqueline Kennedy. Although she of course speaks with respect of the late Mrs. Onassis, Tuckerman also occasionally shares humorous anecdotes that show the former first lady’s mischievous side.
