Town looking to take over Myles Standish Monument from state

As the town awaits an answer from the state concerning the upkeep of the Myles Standish Monument State Reservation, residents are open to the idea of better access to the park, but worry about the cost of maintenance if the responsibility is put on the town. This week, Town Manager Richard MacDonald confirmed that he hasnt received any response to a letter he wrote more than a month ago to the state regarding the grounds maintenance and regulation of public access or lack there of

Census causes minor changes to voting precincts

he 2010 U.S. Census numbers are in, and while Duxbury wont be facing the same monumental changes as the state is in losing a Congressional seat, there will be some minor tweaks to the towns six voting precincts. Duxbury has 15,059 residents, according to the 2010 census numbers. Thats up 811 people from the 2000 number of 14,248. The six voting precincts are governed by federal rules (similar to the Congressional district ones) that Town Clerk Nancy Oates explains the changes to Duxburys say all areas have to be equal, pop- precinct lines during a recent selectmens meeting. Oates said the changes are relatively minor. Photo by Susanna Sheehan continued on page 4

Town groups join hands to address cyberbullying problem

The No Place for Hate Committee, the Duxbury Student Union and The Parent Connection have teamed up once again to continue efforts to prevent cyberbullying in the Duxbury Middle School. The Duxbury Middle School will hold grade by grade assemblies in which two powerful videos will be shown. After the videos the students will go back to their classrooms to take part in activities relevant to the videos which will be led by their councilors. The purpose of these lessons is to increase awareness among middle school students about the problem of cyberbullying and provide them with strategies to deal effectively with the social pressure that encourages them to participate in online cruelty. After hearing the true story of a target of cyberbullying, students explore the nature and extent of the problem in their own lives. Through a public service announcement and case studies, students consider why cru-

Slight changes to voting precincts

continued from page one

ulation-wise. The changes in the voting precincts wont be major. Precincts 3 and 6 saw a population drop of 4.14 and 3.39 percent, respectively. The other districts all increased slightly, with the highest change being in precinct 1 at 3.07 percent. Geographically, the changes are as follows: Precinct 6s borders will remain unchanged. Precinct 5s borders will expand, encompassing Keene Pond and Myrtle Street in the northwest and up to Frankin Street in in the northeast. The eastern border will now be Mayflower Street rather than Route 3. The southeast border of precinct 5 will now come south to the Duck Hill River and will include some marshland along the Marshfield line. Precinct 1s northeast border will now be Chestnut Street rather than Bayview Road. (Town Clerk Nancy Oates has the most accurate and up-to-date maps in her office at Town Hall, and she will also be sending out notices to all the affected homeowners.) Oates said these changes pale in comparison to the first census under her tenure as clerk, in 1990. The population at that time was 13,895, but it was such a significant jump from the 1980 numbers that

CENSUS POINTS OF INTEREST Some highlights of the 2010 census ... Duxbury is getting older. The median age has jumped from 40.3 in 2000 to 44.8 in 2010. The median age for men is 43.8, for women it is 45.6. The senior population is growing. The number of residents 65 and older jumped from 1,707 to 2,454 over the past decade. Diversity not a strong suit. Duxbury is still predominantly white, 97.3 percent of the population. It was 97.8 in 2000. Size of families. The average household size is 2.79. The average family size is 3.23. Its about the same as the last census, 2.85 and 3.26, respectively. The economic downturn is being felt. Duxbury isnt immune from the downturn and housing crunch. The homeowner vacancy rate is 1.3 percent, up from .9 percent in 2000. The rental vacancy rate is 5.4, up from 4.8 in 2000. There are a total of 531 vacant housing units in Duxbury, a jump up from 399 in the last census. The town is growing. Despite the statistic above, the town is expanding. There are 5,875 housing units in Duxbury today, up from 5,345 in 2000. More people are living alone. The number of households where the householder is living alone is up, 1,044 as opposed to 876 in 2000. Were getting more politically correct. The census added a statistic, male householder, for the 2010 census. (The categories for the 2000 counting were married couple or female householder, no Source: U.S. Census Bureau husband present.)

the town had to move from three voting precincts to six. What is the end result of the changes? Little to none. All of Duxburys precincts currently vote at the middle school, so people wont have to change where they cast their ballots. Duxbury is currently split between two state representatives, with Democrat Tom Calter representing voters in precincts 1 and 6, and

Republican Dan Webster those in precincts 2-5. A few residents in the southern part of precinct 2 will now be in the 12th Plymouth District rather than the 6th Plymouth. The new boundaries will take effect this December, so the next election that will be affected is the presidential primary.

Forum about Pilgrim Nuclear plant set for tonight

The Duxbury Emergency Management Agency and the Duxbury Nuclear Advisory Committee will host a forum on Wednesday, June 15, with nuclear safety experts to field questions regarding the potential for a Fukushima-type accident at Pilgrim Power Plant. Panelists include Nuclear Safety Project Union of Concerned Scientists (formerly NRC) Director David Lochbaum; Institute for Resource and Security Studies Director Dr. Gordon Thompson; nuclear advisor Arnold Gundersen; and nuclear engineer Paul Blanch. Entergy was invited to send representation, but DEMA Chief Kevin Nord said they were still awaiting a response as to whether they would atBy anne steele, Clipper intern

tend. An opportunity for the public to ask questions will follow the presentations. I think really its just an awareness type of thing an educational thing, Nord said. I think there was a lot of questions early on, like could that [nuclear accident] happen here, what are the similarities between the two plants, what type of safeguards do they have and things like that. So its really more or less going to be driven by their presentation followed by questions from the audience. Nord said hes generally found residents to be well educated on this topic and this type of forum suits the town well. He said there have been other nuclear safety forums,

but theyve really been limited in the ability to ask questions and I dont think it was a really good fair representation of what some people are really working on. Nord said that none of the panelists were directly connected with Pilgrim Power Plant but that they are familiar with the plants set up. He would like to have as many people as possible (capacity is about 300) and said he remains optimistic on turn out. I hope to learn something from it as well and I will take questions on the emergency preparedness and planning aspect of it. The forum will be held June 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Duxbury Senior Center.

Neighbors mixed on monument

continued from page one

at the Myles Standish Monument on Crescent Street. I ask that every consideration be given to allow public access and the maintenance of the grounds so visitors and locals can visit and appreciate this historic monument, MacDonald wrote. If the Department of Conservation and Recreation will not open the state reservation, he asked that the town be allowed to open the monument and maintain the grounds for public access. MacDonald said his next step will be to send a follow up letter and then contact Massachusetts state representatives. I consider it an important part of Duxbury and most individuals feel that it does belong to the town anyway, he said. He said his first intent in the letter was to urge the state to take action, but if the state grants the town rights to maintain the grounds, he said the DPW would take on the task. Is it extra duties? Of course. Do I consider it part of these duties? Yes, as it sits right in the middle of town, MacDonald said. He said he doesnt expect that it would come at any extra cost to the town. While Standish Shore residents agreed that the monument could be maintained better and opened to the public more often, many cited financial concerns. In recent years, neighbors have watched the grass grow longer than usual and the gate kept closed almost indefinitely. Its gone way downhill, said Diane Cederberg of Crescent Street. When we first moved to the neighborhood, it would be open every summer and the grounds were kept very nice they mowed the grass and all. She said that in the past four or five years its hardly ever been open. We walk our dog up there every day and the grass is way overgrown and kids will go up there and party and theyll smash bottles and so theres broken glass, Cederberg said. It really has a sense of just feeling abandoned. Deborah Segalla, whose Crescent Street home abuts the reservation, agreed, mentioning how it used to be nice to have a park ranger in uniform giving tours. That was kind

of nice, I miss that, she said. Its been kind of forgotten I think. Segalla said it is so unkempt that she doesnt like to keep her dogs up there because the grass gets so high. Patrick Corcoran of Crescent Street said his yard backs up to the property and that he considers the reservation a good neighbor. Corcoran said the grass seems to be cut fairly regularly although the access road accumulates a lot of leaves and pinecones, which narrows it. But he said that overall, under the states current fiscal circumstances, maintenance was fine. I recognize the fiscal constraints involved and I know that the access is quite limited on occasion because I do use it with such regularity. I have seen the monument open; I have talked briefly with the park rangers who monitor it, he said. They say to you they wish they could keep it open more often, but there just isnt enough money in the budget to do so. And it appears that the numbers will indeed be the bottom line. Marilyn Peterson, whose back lot line on Myles View Drive abuts both state and town portions of the property, said its obvious that over the years the state hasnt done as much grass mowing or provided an interpreter there to explain to people the history of the monument or even have it open for people to go up in it. But she said she opposes using town funds to maintain or open it to the public. I just feel that the town cant afford to spend money on another recreational property, Peterson said. However, she said shed like to see the state take action. For a while the state had it open on weekends if we could get back to that level, I think it would be good, she said. Cederberg suggested getting volunteers from the town to help out with maintenance. She acknowledged that the first question for most people is probably about cost, but also contended that the monument is such a great, natural resource here in our town. I have great memories of taking my kids up there and going up to the top and some days you can see all the way Boston and out to Provinc-

etown, she said. Id love to see it revitalized and Id be in favor of the town having something to do with that. A few people pointed out how the reservations use has dwindled down to those in the neighborhood who routinely walk their dogs there. Segalla said she always sees the same people walking at the monument today, where she used to bring guests and people from out of state up for tours. And while Corcoran said he certainly wouldnt object to the towns movement to open the monument up to more public access, he admitted that the only selfish reason I have for wishing it doesnt go through is that I take our dog up there for exercise. I like to let her off the leash and of course if its opened, therell be more car traffic and Ill have to keep her on the leash. Perhaps taking the next step will depend on support from the town, especially those outside the immediate neighborhood. I think its all going to come down to the numbers and looking at the budget to see what the towns response will be to this, but personally, I think if its doable, itd be fantastic because it really is part of our towns heritage, Segalla said. It comes down to how much it would cost and if it would be a burden to the town or not.

Planning Board stands firm on River Lane appeal

Despite the passage of a citizens petition at Marchs Town Meeting that one could argue is aimed squarely at them, the Planning Board is holding firm on the controversial River Lane case. Last year, the Planning Board appealed Director of Inspectional Services Scott Lambiases decision to issue a building permit for an outbuilding at 21 River Lane. The Planning Board said the accumulation of amenities in the building made it a second home, which is prohibited in Duxbury. The homeowner pointed to a bylaw that said if theres no stove, it isnt a dwelling unit and is therefore permissible. The case landed in court, and was cited as a major reason for Jessica Williams citizens petition article on Town Meeting floor. That article redefined what could be in an accessory structure, basically saying that it was ok to have living space as long as the final product didnt fit the definition of a dwelling unit. Now the judge in the court case has thrown the decision back to the town, essentially asking the board if the newlyminted article changes things. Planning Board members, however, stuck to their guns. That term living space does not suddenly require these amenities that theyve excluded, said Planning Board Vice Chairman George Wadsworth. I dont think we should defer, I think we should argue for keeping it from becoming a dwelling unit. Our position has not changed, added Josh Cutler. Town Planner Tom Broadrick said that under the new rule, theres nothing stopping a homeowner from building an accessory building without a stove, then once the building inspector signs off on the project, moving one in.

the issue that at some point theyre going to be used as dwelling, he said. If you dont let them be built ... you have less to worry about. You still cant have a structure that as soon as you walk into it, looks and feels like a single family home, Broadrick added. The Zoning Board of Appeals ruled on the Planning Boards appeal last year, mostly upholding Lambiases decision but with some conditions. However, they will be revisiting their decision at a June 23 public hearing. After the contentious discussion surrounding the citizens petition at Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen have made it clear they want to study the issue of zoning rules. However, the quickness with which the group was appointed has ruffled some feathers. Selectmen have asked the Planning Board for a representative, and Wadsworth took the job but not without some hesitation. Im concerned about the process. Theres an overwhelming group whose best interest is to change the bylaw to help out themselves and their neighbors, he said.

For Michele, one of the greatest advances in cancer care has been the one on the South Shore.

When Michele needed treatment for breast cancer, she was thankful that she could receive world-renowned care at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital. And she had confidence knowing that our specialists, focused on cancer, were providing the expert care she needed. But she also found something more: how important it was to be treated in a place that not only cared for her cancer, but also for her life. Its a place filled with hope, said Michele. And having all the integrated services she needed close to home helped her maintain a sense of normalcy through her treatments. With two small kids, I dont know how I would have managed otherwise, she explained. Having this level of cancer care on the South Shore it means everything to me.

Counsel: No meetings at Blairhaven

continued from page one

one of them, a former dormitory, as town meeting space or a satellite harbormasters office. Other structures will be torn down. However, Troy said that the article as voted at Town Meeting says that the land has to be used for recreational purposes and meeting space or a harbormasters office doesnt fit the bill. Residents at Town Meeting voted to expend $3.15 million in Community Preservation Act funds to purchase the five-acre Blairhaven property off Crescent Street from a church group. The vote was controversial, however, and many residents expressed a concern that the future use of the property was not clear. The study group was formed to look into the issue and come up with recommendations for the lands use. Troys memo points out that a motion was made on Town Meeting floor to further restrict the use of the property to passive recreation, but that motion failed. However, the recreational language in the article and the Community Preservation Act still restricts the use. I conclude that permissible uses of Blairhaven include all recreational uses including

community gardens, trails, noncommercial sports as well as the use of the parcel as a park, playground or athletic fields, Troy wrote. The existing buildings could also be used for activities like yoga or martial arts. However, he said town meetings would not be allowed, even if the town board deals with recreational activities such as the Bay Management Committee. Meetings of a governmental body or its committees are neither an active or a passive recreational use, Troy wrote. For similar reasons, he said that the buildings could not be used to house the administrative offices of the harbormasters office. Sullivan said that the committee will discuss the legal opinion at their next meeting. We need to take that to the committee and say what is it that you want to do, she said. If its to just comply with that opinion ... thats one avenue. Another avenue is to amend the article at a subsequent Town Meeting. Sullivan said the she hasnt discussed the memo with Troy, but its her understanding that the door isnt closed on options like public meeting space the property would just have to come back before

Town Meeting. Theres prescribed uses for community preservation, but under that umbrella it can be used for different things, she said. As this article is passed, it was purchased for the purposes of recreation. The study committee is meeting weekly, as the town has not yet purchased the property (that is set for early July.) The committee is working on a conservation restriction, which is a fairly immutable legal document that limits what the property can be used for. Sullivan said that document needs to be carefully written because it cannot be changed, and will not be ready before the land is purchased. The committee is also working on a set of rules and regulations, things like the hours the property will be open, that is under the control of the selectmen and can be revisited in the future by that board. What the group does want to do before the July deadline is present a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen. As our work has evolved it appears we are looking for a solution, not a menu of recommendations, Sullivan said. Its a great group, theyve worked very hard, she added. Everybodys working really hard and asking great questions.

40 years of art
Art Complex Museum is Weyerhaeuser family legacy
Carl and Edith Weyerhaeuser wanted to share their collection with the world. The Milton residents, who summered in Duxbury, found a couple acres of land behind the Judah Alden House, and after looking at other locations for the museum such as Thayer Academy and Cape Cod, they founded the Art Complex Museum in 1971. Dad was the collector, said Charles Weyerhaeuser, Carl and Ediths son and the current director of the museum. My mother loved people and realized why not do something with the collection. Forty years later, the museum has maintained its mission of bringing art and culture to the public (they do not charge for entry into the museum and for many of their events). The museum is holding several events to coincide with the anniversary, including a gala fundraiser this Friday, 6 p.m. at the museum. The museums beginnings were less than auspicious, however. The family friend who was to be the first director passed away before the Art Complex opened. Ture Bengtz, an artist and a teacher at the Museum of Fine Arts Museum School who had at one point painted a family portrait, became the first director and put his stamp on the museum. After things didnt work out at Thayer Academy, the land behind the Alden house came up for sale, and it seemed like a natural fit. The idea came, why not

have it in Duxbury. We love Duxbury. It just worked out perfectly, Weyerhaeuser said. The gallery in the museums entrance is named the Phoenix Gallery, symbolic of the museums survival after those early set backs. This really was the phoenix rising from the ashes, said Weyerhaeuser. Ture Bengtz helped put this all together. Bengtz himself passed away only a couple of years after the museum opened, and his student at the MFA Museum School, Charles Weyerhaeuser, became the director in 1973. One of the hallmarks of the museum is the connections it has with the local community. One of the features of the Art Complex is the Japanese Tea House, which Carl Weyerhaeuser brought back after a trip to Japan. My mother realized how important the tea ceremony was to Japanese culture, Weyerhaeuser said. With the help of a friend, Kojiro Tomita, who also helped the museum accumulate its Asian art collection, the Weyerhaeusers brought a fully formed tea house back to Duxbury. The original plan was to have the house set up inside the museum, but Bengtz suggested building a shed away from the main structure, and thats where it sits today. A Chandler teacher who obtained a Fulbright Scholarship to student the educational system in Japan originally brought her students to observe the traditional tea ceremonies at the museum, but now Alden students walk

up to participate. Its fun for us because it gets people in who wouldnt normally come, Weyerhaeuser said. For older students, the museum does a Student Outdoor Sculpture show every year, and the work of students at the South Shore Charter School can be seen now on the grounds of the complex. Weyerhaeuser said that the students have to make a proposal and go before a jury to explain their work, as a professional artist would have to do. Theyve got to learn how to make a proposal, he said. They really put their heart and soul into it. The family influence at the Art Complex Museum is a strong one. Over the Phoenix Gallery hangs a large Tiffany

window, taken from Weyerhaeusers grandmothers house in Minnesota. All through the anniversary year, there will be piano concerts (including Tom Hansen who grew up in Duxbury) because the Weyerhaeusers always had pianos in their home. At the center of the main gallery, the Ture Bengtz Gallery, is a smaller room called Rotations. This area always displays a part of the family collection, even if the artwork in the gallery is something different like the Duxbury Art Associations Juried show, which has been at the ACM since the museum opened, or the Art in Blooms exhibit. The Rotations gallery could be a

collection of Shaker chairs, Japanese prints or American art. Right now, as part of the 40th year celebrations its a selection of the favorites of the museum staff. Weyerhaeusers pick is a Japanese print of a snow scene. Its the heart of the museum, he said of Rotations. So what does Weyerhaeuser see happening at the museum over the next 40 years? He said he wants to maintain and grow the collection, as well as keep up the Art Complexs community connections. Very important to me is to maintain my familys involvement and to continue to meet the changing needs of the community, he said.

ts time to deep-six the ill-advised, hastily introduced policy of not releasing the after graduation plans of Duxbury High School graduates. The original decision was one of the worst examples of helicopter parenting weve ever seen remember, the logic wasnt that kids who chose not to go to college would feel left out, it was that someone might see that their friend had gotten into a better college and their feelings might be hurt. Even thatlogicispainfullyflawed,asdifferentcollegesareabetter fitforindividualstudentsbasedontheirinterestsandneeds. College isnt a social status symbol. Its arguably the most important decision in a young man or womans life. It doesnt matter that Harvard is a better school, if a student wants to become a veterinarian and UMass Amherst has a better program. By taking such a paranoid stance about printing college acceptances, were actually hurting students by telling them the name of the school is such a dangerous thing. Rather, we should be recognizing that students need to take the path that serves them best, whether that is a small local college, a giant university many states away, trade school or the military. From what we understand, this policy stems from a complaint by a very small minority, perhaps even one parent. Frankly, weve yet to run into a student or adult who agrees with the policy. So how did this happen? The bottom line is that far too often in the Duxbury Public School District, a small minority of parents seems to be able to dictate policy. Twice since the no-name-with-college-choices policy has been put into place, a student has taken it upon his or herself to use their own time to compile the list. (See page 25.) This is clearly what the students and likely a vast majorityofparentswant.Itstimetotakeastandandnixthis silly policy once and for all. J. Graeber

The Duxbury Political Machine

he ability of free citizens to govern themselves wisely has been debated for thousands of years. In Athens, the cradle of democracy, over 2,500 years ago, the philosopher Plato advocated rule by an educated elite. His student, Aristotle, outright favored rule by an aristocratic elite. In the early days of the United States of America, Alexander Hamilton represented a similar view, opposing Thomas Jeffersons push for a more open democracy. He would have approved of Duxburys Political By William F. ZaChmann Machine. What? Duxburys Political Machine? What the heck is that? Who ever WillS WAy heard of such a thing? What is this, some sort of local weird conspiracy theory? No, it is not. Duxbury has long been guided by the largely invisible hand of what amounts to a shadow government. The Duxbury Political Machine is a group of individuals, some quite prominent publicly, some little known to most citizens of Duxbury, who work very hard to steer the visible town government in directions they deem desirable. They guide committee appointments, pick, and very effectively support candidates for keyoffices.Theyworktoeliminateoffice holders who do not play ball according to their rules, too. A rare and candid glimpse into the workings of The Duxbury Political Machine was provided by retiring Selectman (woman, actually) Betsy Sullivan at the party honoring her at the Senior Center on May 18. It tells of her initiation into the Duxbury Political Machine: I will tell one short story and Bob Troy doesnt have to get nervous because this wont cause any ripples, its not a bad story. But,

The Duxbury Political Machine is a group of individuals, some quite prominent publicly, some little known to most citizens of Duxbury, who work very hard to steer the visible town government in directions they deem desirable.
about 20 years ago my friend Patty Ryan, my neighbor, and my other neighbor Shiela Webster who is here tonight, we thought: I think Betsy should run for school committee. I think it was Pattys idea. Im pretty sure it was. But shell say it was my idea. So we thought, Good idea, yeah lets do this! OK! Great! And like so many good ideas it seemed like it was going to be so easy and fun. And then all of a sudden reality hit and we thought, Oh my God! Now what do we do? Patty gets a phone call, from this gravelly voiced guy and he said: Hi! Im Jack Canty. Cmon over to the house. I hear you have a friend that might want to run for school committee. Lets see. So Patty and I go over to this house on Elm Street and Im thinking theres going to be, you now, speakers in the pine trees with theme of the Godfather playing. We have no idea. I mean, Who is this man? We walk into this porch and there is this larger than life guy with his dear dear friend Paul Arsenian, a very quiet spoken gentleman, and I look at Uncle Jack, as I came to call him. And he said: So, I hear you want to run for school committee. Why the heck should I vote for you? Like, whoa! And thus began my education into politics and how to run for office and what were good folks that did service and how they should go forward. The Duxbury Political Machine is alive and well today, represented on the Board of Selectmen by Shawn Dahlen and Ted FlynnandbyalargemajorityoftheSchool Committee. Next year, it will be working very hard to get rid of Selectmen Chris Donato. We will further examine the Duxbury Political Machine in future columns.

Taking on No. 2 seeded Billerica, the No. 3 seeded Dragons allowed the Indians to keep it close for the first 12 minutes of action, then went into overdrive and completely dominated the rest of the way for a 19-9 rout in the Division I semifinals at the Marshall Middle School field in Billerica on Saturday afternoon. While a large portion of the 19 goals were credited to outstanding performances by Paul

Hellar (5 goals/4 assists) and Will Siefert (4 goals/3 assists), it was the Dragon defense that played near flawlessly, with goalkeeper Henry Buonagurio coming up with spectacular saves at key times in the contest. The blanket coverage of Billerica star Grant Whiteway (one goal) by junior captain Max Randall was another key to victory. Things didnt start out quite so positively for the Dragons, as Billericas Ben Meluagh took the opening faceoff and raced down field to score in five seconds for a 1-0 Indian lead. It didnt seem to rattle Duxbury one bit, however, as Bryan Barry, Andrew Buron and Hellar scored three goals over a six-minute span to grab a 3-1 lead halfway through the quarter. The hosts would tie the game as the quarter wore down, but Siefert would throw several fakes on the Billerica defense before beating sophomore goalie Dan Smith with a shot along the ground

possible. My generation offers the proof. My wife and I have reconnected and rekindled relationships that had long grown dormant. We are only two, of course, but add the numbers that we have found and it becomes clear that Kevins defense of Internet life is sound. It will be fun in coming years to see what difference staying connected (Kevins generation) makes, compared to reconnecting (my generation). Ill leave aside the connections with new people, sometimes spontaneous, sometimes orchestrated, that have filled the headlines in recent months. The worlds political, social and cultural landscape has fundamentally changed. I can now, for example, claim elements of connection with Kabul, or Oxford, that would have once been limited to daydreams. Kevins connections are in the realm of real, living relationships with people that will share his experience emerging into adulthood. They are not pulled together by interest in a cause or topic. Thats another subject. Instead, they are pulled together by personal relationships with each other. Heres the gray-headed wisdom: let those relationships embrace your differences. Let them reach deeper than the feelings, thoughts, and actions that will seem to spread you all across the usual spectrum of politics, faith, and lifestyle. My old crowd from Heidelberg American High School now includes military men and women, radical peace activists, simple folk just bumping along, and movers and shakers. Many turned out to live lives very different from what they appeared to be at the time. Kevins generation may have an easier time accepting one another as-is. But heres a gentle caution: we thought that about ourselves, too. We thought we were brave new adventurers in societys evolution. We were. Yet the world still reeks of injustice, brutality and oppression. On the other hand, we didnt waste our hopes and aspirations. Much of the cutting edge of our efforts succeeded, and the challenges of Kevins generation are further down the line of development than ours were. My generation remembers. Kevins anticipates. Remembering (at least for me) includes a deepening appreciation for the brilliance of the long past. Ive just discovered C.S. Lewis, the author of the Chronicles of Narnia, but also of Mere Christianity. A profound friend of J.R.R. Tolkien and a denizen of Oxford, Lewis speaks to me. Kevins generation, connected to each other in real time, can share such personal discoveries faster an more fully than my generation used to do. Philip Pullman (author of The Golden Compass) reaches out from the atheist side of the house, and also from Oxford. Pullman and Lewis werent contemporaries, but their ideas are. Kevins generation has the chance to show us how such disparate ideas, and those who think them, can live together, connected in real time, and embracing each other. Wont that be something?

In two days, a pair of Duxbury residents will be leading separate campaigns to sail the 645 miles in open sea from Marion to Bermuda. Dave Caso will captain Silhouette. a 22-year-old 42-foot Cherubini (Herreshoff design) with six aboard and Shawn Dahlen will lead his five-year-old 42-foot Beneteau, Attitude, with only four aboard. With two Duxbury captains and crews cooperating, while supporting and rooting for one another, it only advances Duxburys offshore experience and blue-water sailing skills. You can follow their progress for about five days by clicking on and clicking on their boat names beginning at noon on Friday. This year the Notice of Race is managed by the Marion to Bermuda Race Committee (MBRC) that is made up of three clubs: Beverly Y. C., Royal Hamilton Dingy Club and the Blue Water Sailing Club. The ISAF sets the offshore regulations and rules that relate to Category I races, but can be waived or augmented by the MBRC. Attitude is racing in the cruising class (i.e., with no spinnaker) and Silhouette is racing with a spinnaker. All boats are rated by US Sailing and compete on corrected time based on their rating. How does one manage such a campaign? With lots of planning. If you are motivated, it is easy to find experienced offshore crew in Duxbury, thanks to the Duxbury Yacht Club, the Duxbury Offshore Race Committee (affectionately known as the DORCs) and word of mouth. Ideally most captains go back to the list of crew that went with them the previous year. It is interesting to note that both captains have some engineering background. One captain starts in October, the other the beginning of the year, using a template, putting togeth-

er a two-inch loose leaf binder and basically rebuilding the previous years material. The template is a reminder to list everything from crew training dates, crew sail resumes, rating certificates, slip reservations, insurance requirements, storm tri-sails, plugs for each sea-cock and return captains itinerary. Certificates relate to the inspection of life rafts, EPIRBs, flares, and drogues. Not to mention renting (and delivery time of) the life raft, satellite phone, filling the spare diesel containers, etc. or the amount of inspection done to make sure to uncover any unnecessary corrosion or missing parts. Usually the crew is either six to eight in number; there is a number of additional trophies, short handed for four or less or double handed just two. This year Attitude will have four as crew: captain Dahlen (seven offshore races), Keith Fotta (four races, one return), Andre Martecchini (4) and Mark Bobseine (2). On Silhouette, the crew is composed of captain Caso (six races), Ned Lawson (6), Sam Lawson (6), Chuck Leonard (1), Keith Pratt (2) and Terry Watson (4). Safety is the paramount priority for both boats, with redundant double and triple back-ups (example: four GPSs, two radios, two antennae), and well-marked plac-


DUXBUrys coNTrIBUTIoN To aNoTHer TITLe: The Tabor academy sailing team won their eighth National Team racing championship at the Norfolk yacht and country club in Norfolk, Va.

ards around the ship defining where the safety equipment is stowed. Each member is required to understand these, do man-overboard drills, and understand where every through hull fitting is. The goal is to have these experienced sailors come together at least three or four times aboard the boat before the race, doing an overnight as an example. Once a boat leaves the dock, it may not be able to fix a problem and have to turn back. How can you concentrate on racing your boat quickly when someone is up the mast untangling a problem? ISAF Offshore Special Regulations define this race as a Category 1 race of long distance, well offshore, in large unprotected bays, and in waters where large waves, strong currents, or conditions leading to rapid onset of hypothermia are possible. Yachts must be completely self-sufficient for extended periods of time, capable of withstanding heavy storms and prepared to meet serious emergencies without the expectation of outside assistance. The second priority is racing 645 miles, balancing speed and enjoyment. The race starts off Marion, sailing down through Buzzards Bays Elizabeth Islands, leaving the Sow and Pigs Reef off Cuttyhunk and turning to Bermuda at a heading of 164 degrees. There is software available that makes setting your course much easier. One can enter the wind, current, and polars of the boat, and the program calculates the most efficient route. Does one go 60 miles west of the rhumb line to gain four knots in current? Often the navigator and tactician do this using plain intuition. The program just confirms their recommendation. In conclusion, the majority of Caso and Dahlens time is spent in the thinking, planning, organizing, and camaraderie of the trip. Doing the actual race is just a small part of the puzzle (perhaps just 20 perecent). But its an experience the crew can talk about forever.

It was a game that was always within reach, as Duxbury held a 3-1 first quarter lead, and was still within striking distance at halftime when they trailed, 7-5. After sophomore Tess Chandler won the opening faceoff for Hopkinton, the Hillers controlled play for almost three minutes before senior attack Brooke Rudden cut through the slot in front of goaltender Sophie Fitzpatrick and fired back across her body to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. Duxbury wasted little time in getting it back, as senior Olivia McCarthy took a feed from junior Molly Zaverucha and broke right down the middle, beating goaltender Jaclyn Chirco at the 21:24 mark to tie the game at 1-1. A rejuvenated Dragon squad went ahead 12 seconds later when sophomore Hannah Murphy (5 goals) picked up the faceoff and headed straight for the Hopkinton net, burying her shot past Chirco for a 2-1 lead. The lead grew to 3-1 less than three minutes later when senior defender Devan Bahr raced up field with the ball, finding Murphy inside where she beat Chirco once again, boosting the confidence of her teammates.

The tide slowly turned against the Lady Dragons, as Chandler began to control the faceoffs with her height advantage over Siobhan McCarthy. Three straight goals had the Hillers ahead 4-3, but Murphy tied it once again out of a free position at the 12:58 mark. The game went back and forth, as senior captain Keri Gould put Duxbury ahead, 5-4, for their last lead of the afternoon. Sophomore Kristen Blackwell would tie it once again for Hopkinton, and Chandler would regain the lead at 6-5 with 11 minutes left in the half. What had been a fast-paced game suddenly slowed down, as both sides had trouble finding the net over the next nine minutes. With 1:44 remaining in the half, Chandler struck again to send the Hillers into intermission with a 7-5 lead.

Bluebirds are harbingers of spring, symbols of happiness, the subject of songs and poetry, according to the columnist.

t seems to me that more than any other species, it is the Bluebird that people seem to want to attract to their yards. Bluebirds are harbingers of spring, symbols of happiness, the subject of songs and poetry. Their color is shockingly beautiful; a blue described by some as a piece of the sky itself. Their chest and throat is orange. It is a member of the thrush family and early settlers from England called it the blue robin. There are three species of bluebirds in North America: Eastern Bluebird, Mountain Bluebird, and Western Bluebird. The Eastern Bluebird, our bluebird, is a small thrush that before the 20th century was thriving across the eastern half of the country. Then it was hit with a series of changes that severely depleted its numbers. Some brilliant thinker released English sparrows at several spots around the country. From the original 50 birds released, the English sparrow has become the most common bird in the nation. The same mistake was made with starlings. House sparrows immediately invaded the nest cavities that bluebirds use. Starlings also used nesting sites and by virtue of their huge numbers often stripped areas of winter food sources. By 1915 the bluebird was threatened. By 1940 it was in decline. By 1963 the bluebird population may have reached its lowest point ever. English sparrows and starlings were not the only culprits. A series of improvements in modern life just accelerated the decline. Habitat loss due to changes in agriculture (DDT, thinning of woods, urban sprawl, popularity of lawns which require the cutting of dead trees and snags, increase in house cats, etc.) It was during this period of bluebird decline that concerned lovers of the species started a number of projects to increase their numbers again. Today things are looking up for the Eastern Bluebird. The most successful project was the invention of something called a bluebird trail. People were encouraged to set up a trail of nesting boxes along a predetermined line, usually a field or meadow. Bluebirds like open fields and meadows with a tree here and there. Neglected farm land naturally returns to woods. Keeping unused fields mowed can attract bluebirds. In 1973 a group of enthusiasts created the North American Bluebird Society which educates the public to the status of the species and how to help create clubs and trails in their area. The Web site, Sialis, has this to say about the present status of this most extraordinary bird: It is believed that the bluebird population peaked around 1900. Some sources say there was a marked decline from 1938-late 1970s. As far as I know, bluebirds were never placed on any federal lists of endangered or threatened species. Despite this, a number of conservation pioneers across the continent recognized that bluebird numbers were dwindling, and took action. Today, bluebirds are found in areas where they had not been seen for a quarter of a century. Eastern Bluebird populations have increased more than 2 percent per year since 1966 The number of nestboxes is still increasing, and number of birds nesting in and fledging from boxes is also increasing year after year. If you want to see bluebirds, you can visit the Audubon Society Farm in Marshfield off of Webster Street this summer.
