SALISBURY — Joshua R. Ginsberg is a “glass half full” guy. That is why his presentation to a Salisbury Forum on Nov. 9 is titled “Why I am an Environmental Optimist.”

Ginsberg, of course, is president of the renowned Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook. While trusting the data on global warming in the face of deniers — he often quotes the late Sen.

LAKEVILLE — It was one of those ice-cutting years for the annual Spring Splash at Lake Wonoscopomuc. At 11:30 a.m. Sunday, March 20, Jacquie Rice had cleared out a reasonable area off the beach at the Grove, but before the actual splashing began volunteer firefighters Tim Villano, Marie Castagna and Chris Ohmen jumped on the thick ice to break it up.
The water temperature was 31 degrees; the air temperature 44 degrees.
It was sunny, though, which helped.

Franco images at gallery

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

SALISBURY — Photographer Angel Franco is many people, and he goes by many names. Most people call him Franco (pronounced more like Fronco, with a slight Latin trill on the R).
“If you can pronounce Angel, call me that,” he says. But of course that’s not angel like the ones in heaven and on Valentine cards, but on-Hel (with a slight Latin burr on the H).
Or if you know him really well, from the old days growing up in the outer boroughs of New York City, you might call him Pichi, pronounced like peachy.
“Pichi, not Peach,’” he emphasizes. “Don’t call me Peach.”
