She is going to tell all on Thursday, Feb. 21 at a Chester Land Trust program at the Chester meeting house.

Roseann Ventimiglia said yes. The result is that she is the new head of the upcoming book sale sponsored by the Friends of the Chester Public Library. And there is more that is new. For the first time the sale will be held at the United Church of Chester, 29 West Main Street, Chester, rather than in the library basement. The four-day sale will take place from Friday, Jan. 18 through Monday, Jan. 21.

What links Pittsburg, New Hampshire, a town with a population of 813 at the Canadian border, and the valley shore area of Connecticut? Even if the New Hampshire town is not a familiar name, there is a powerful connection: the Connecticut River. Pittsburg is where the river rises and some 406 miles later it runs into Long Island Sound not far from the Connecticut River Museum in Essex where Suzanne Burns is the new director of education.
Art Davies says there are some 43,000 different kinds of items in a hardware store. But in Deep River Hardware, which Art owns, for the first three weeks of December there will be 43,001. The extra category is a seasonal favorite: Christmas trees.

On a recent morning, a visitor to Centerbrook Architects stood with 3-D glasses, not simply viewing, but virtually walking through a meditation garden Dan Batt is in charge of designing for the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in Stamford. The 3-D experience, gravity-defying but also vertigo-inducing, was an introduction to the different ways 21st-century technology enables architects to work.

Where there’s a will, there’s a…relative. Just ask Terry Lomme, the recently retired judge of probate in the Old Saybrook district, which includes nine towns: Old Saybrook, Essex, Deep River, Chester, Westbrook, Clinton, Killingworth, Lyme, and Haddam. Terry, who was required to retire at the mandatory age of 70, is a longtime Essex resident.

Wisdom doesn’t go out of style, so what Roman orator and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote some 2,000 years ago works well for Elizabeth Bartlett today: If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero did and so does Elizabeth Bartlett. (Okay, Latin enthusiasts, here it is: Si hortum in bibliotheca habes, deerit nihil.)
