submitted by Sarah Brophy, Town Moderator

Carlisle’s Annual Town Meeting will be held the fourteenth and fifteenth of May, at the Carlisle School. We set the town’s budget, consider special purchases and attend to bylaw, personnel and various management issues.

by Kathleen Coyle

When Cecile Sandwen looked out of her window about 5 p.m. last Saturday afternoon she saw a lot of smoke and a line of fire coming through the woods toward her Suffolk Lane house. She called to her husband, to call the fire department. When it was all over at 9:16 p.m., 16 firefighters and five pieces of equipment from Carlisle and a mutual-aid tanker from Hanscom Field had responded and 8 to 12 acres of woods had burned.
