Lives lost in 2001 and in the ensuing years-long war on terror were honored during a 24-hour long Patriot Day ceremony held at St. Martin of Tours in North Canaan. 

The event was once again organized by the Knights of Columbus and member Nick DeAngelis, as has been the case since the first ceremony at the Route 7 site in 2008.

“This is the 10th time the service has been 24 hours long,” DeAngelis said on Wednesday morning, Sept. 11, standing outside the tent erected each year on the lawn in front of the church. He said as far as he knows this is the only...

Plant for fall under the summer sun

It is 90 degrees out and the jewels of summer are starting to ripen in the form of tomatoes, cantaloupe and red peppers. Who has head space for planning out their Thanksgiving menu? 
Full-season gardeners have an almost surreal relationship with time. We have to be fully present to stay on top of the zucchini harvest lest the fruits double in size while we turn our heads, but we have to simultaneously be sketching out the next season to maintain succession plantings.

Heavy labor in heavy wool in a heatwave

I spent last weekend dressed in natural fibers: woolen broadcloth, checked linen and alum-tanned deerskin. This is not an unusual occurrence for me, because in addition to my professional and personal interests in environmental conservation I am an avid reenactor of 18th-century American history. 
What was unusual was the extreme heat and humidity. A wiser or more cautious individual might have decided to stay at home. I, of course, went to Fort Ticonderoga.

Drive-up theater

Drive-in movie theaters came into vogue in the early 1930s. But drive-up picture shows had a quarter-century head start. Ask folks in Salisbury.
“A moving picture company, who gave an entertainment in the Salisbury town hall Monday and Tuesday evenings of this week, provided a practical demonstration of the fact that the automobile can be made to ‘earn its salt,’ ” the Connecticut Western News said in its April 30, 1908, issue.

editor@millertonnews.com

HARLEM VALLEY — Music is a way to express, a way to articulate one’s thoughts and feelings and an opportunity to appreciate all that is beautiful in life. Exposure to music can help in the development of minds in young and old alike. To help make that easier, Music Mountain in Falls Village, Conn., the oldest chamber music summer festival in the United States, is now offering free admission for public school students and their families in some Dutchess and Columbia County school districts.

Black caps and the dreams of childhood

For many of us, the common black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis) was the first foraged food of childhood.
Known here in New England as “black caps,” their vines can prick and scratch but lack the fearsome barbs of the blackberry cane.

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

I’m not enough of a musician to explain why I like what I like; all I can say is that I like music that makes me feel like I’m 20 years old and driving to a beach in southern California.
