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.

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.

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.

SALISBURY — On Friday, Aug. 19, a small army of volunteers from Habitat for Humanity will descend on the small green house at 25 Academy St. (across from the LaBonne’s parking lot) to make repairs and renovations and generally make it suitable for affordable housing.
