Salisbury

SALISBURY —  The Salisbury Association has provided 15 red oaks and sugar maples for various locations in Salisbury and Lake-ville, including several parks and along Routes 44 and 41.  

The history of the Salisbury Association’s tree-planting program began in 1903 when it aided the town in the fight against Dutch elm disease. The old elms that had lined Main Street had been devastated by the disease, and by 1905 a total of 692 new trees were planted. 

The Tree Planting Committee of the Salisbury Association has continued its support of the program...

Tradition, history and fun are centerpieces of July 4 events

SALISBURY —  The Fourth of July was on a Thursday this year, which meant lots of people had to go to work on the day after. That didn’t keep Northwest Corner residents from celebrating with cookouts, parties, baseball and other summer fun from Thursday until Sunday. There was watermelon. There were hamburgers. 
There was hardly any rain, except on Saturday, July 6 — when many people were happy to see it, and hoped it would lower the temperatures (it did, somewhat).

Unlocked trash cans are bear feeders

SALISBURY — Amy Longley of Salisbury snapped these photos of a hungry black bear searching for food after tipping over and opening a garbage bin in the shopping area near Academy Street in Salisbury. “We have a human problem, not a bear problem in Salisbury,” Longley said. “People must lock up their garbage. If they don’t it will be death to the bears.”

Infrastructure, easements and legal fees

SALISBURY — At a special town meeting on Wednesday, June 19, Salisbury taxpayers approved language for a bond to pay for an infrastructure update; approved funds to pay for legal fees associated with the investigation into improper behavior by a former town employee; and approved the return of an easement on Long Pond to private owners of a property there.

Out on a date, two bears come to dine at Salisbury home

SALISBURY — The beautiful weather last week brought many Northwest Corner residents out of their homes, including the bears, who made some unwanted social calls in Salisbury — including one in the far-north section of town known as Taconic, in which two bears wedged themselves into a small kitchen and rifled through the cupboards.
Many of the sightings in the past couple weeks have involved one larger bear (male) and one smaller (female).

For 32 in SCS class, home is people not a place

LAKEVILLE — The 32 members of the Salisbury Central School (SCS) Class of 2019 milled around the courtyard at the upper school building before the promotion exercise on Friday, June 14, taking photos of each other, adjusting their outfits, and being generally excited.
It took a little while to get them settled for their official class photo. The professional photographer hired by the school dispelled the tension by having the students do a “serious” pose and a “silly” one.
The ceremony took place in the gym.

A poet’s new book explores the art of seeing

SALISBURY — Lakeville resident and longtime Hotchkiss School Poet-in-Residence Susan Kinsolving writes poetry known for its subtle meaning and musicality.

Facing death and seizing life

SALISBURY — In a speech that was as moving as a poem, Sandy Dennis of Salisbury evoked the beauty of every moment of life when seen through the eyes of one who might soon lose it.
She offered thoughts, memories, encouragement and exhortations at a National Cancer Survivors Day event at the Grove in Lakeville on Tuesday, June 4, hosted by the Salisbury Visiting Nurse Association.
“We are all survivors,” Dennis said, looking around the room,“whether we are 6, 38 or 88, just by remaining alive up to this moment.”
