SALISBURY — “Earthbound Buddha,” a show of new art by Karl Saliter, opens at Noble Horizons in Salisbury on Friday, Oct. 18, with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m.

In an interview at his studio at the end of September, Saliter said the works in the show depict “people in meditation and prayer — thinking earthbound thoughts.”

Saliter — a sculptor and performer at other times — used “found”...

SALISBURY — The weekly Saturday hikes, sponsored by Peter Becks Village Store, got off to a modest start June 24, with hike leader George Rand leading a team of, well, no one except this reporter up the Race Brook trail in nearby Sheffield, Mass.
Rand, 29, has just completed his EMT training and works as a technician in the emergency room at Sharon Hospital.
A native of Salisbury, he said he took a National Outdoor Leadership School course a few years ago.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — The zoning text amendment prohibiting vertical expansion of nonconforming structures in the Lake Overlay Protection Zones was rejected by the Planning and Zoning Commission in a somewhat surprising meeting Tuesday, June 21.

Taylor Dowd likened SCS to a family. “And now we leave behind the family we’ve created.”
There was a slide show that mixed family photos with shots from the students’ SCS careers.
