Turning Back The Pages

100 years ago — October 1918

LIME ROCK — The children who had scarletina have all recovered and are out again. The cases were all very mild.


TACONIC — Eugene Fuller of Sheffield fell from an apple tree recently, loosening several ribs from the spine. He remains in a serious condition.


Still nothing like being in the newspaper

With the Red Sox comfortably ahead—10-1 or so—in the second game of that extremely satisfying series with the Yankees, I turned to the Turner Classic Movies channel during a commercial break at just the right time.

Locking the door behind us

Soon after my husband and I bought our home in Sharon almost 20 years ago, I went to Town Hall to buy a transfer station permit. Enthusiastic about our little house in the woods, I told the selectmen’s secretary that I hoped the area would stay exactly as we’d found it.

Money can be defined as “a medium that can be exchanged for goods and services and is used as a measure of their values on the market.” 

This is actually fairly ambiguous, and throughout human history all sorts of things have been used as money, from shells to tulips. Currently, there is a financial revolution occurring that doesn’t even exist in the physical world.

I’ve been voting since I filled out an an absentee ballot for Dwight Eisenhower at Fort Knox in 1956 and in all those years, I can’t remember an election with candidates less appealing than the pair running for governor of Connecticut in November—except for the pair who ran for president two years ago. 

I still hope to do my civic duty and vote for someone for governor but at the moment, a month before Election Day, I can’t cast that vote for either of the major party candidates, Ned Lamont or Bob Stefanowski.
