STANFORDVILLE — Stanford Community Day will again provide an opportunity for revelers to pick a favorite pair and cheer them to victory in what has become the traditional Push Cart Derby, organized by Helen Hamada and her husband, Kardsh Onnig of the Barraka Center for 3D Experimentation.

They began the event three years ago because, according to Hamada, “post election there was such a divide in this country that we thought, ‘Why don’t we try to do something in the community?’ Something that will be fun and bring everyone together — and it doesn...

Every one bit the dust

Disturbing news, for a baby boomer anyway, comes from my recent reading of Steve Knopper’s article “The End of Owning Music,” Rolling Stone, June 14 issue, and  Renée Graham’s “In the YouTube Era, Can We Still Savor Music?” Boston Globe, June 17. They shook my whole personal music foundation.

The oak and the maple and our dashed hopes

I should have known better. Daring to predict the quality of the autumn foliage in New England is an act of hubris that seldom goes unanswered. Alert readers of this column will have noticed that despite my assertion in September that we had the potential for an outstanding display of fall color, we have instead experienced one of the drabbest, most muted and altogether lackluster leaf peeping seasons in recent memory.
