The Carlisle Mosquito Online

Chuck and Carolyn Capetta of Hillside Drive have joined other runners and walkers to kick off the American Stroke Association's "train to end stroke" marathon training program. Train to End Stroke participants, including Chuck and Carolyn, will join thousands of other runners at either the Reggae marathon in Jamaica in December or the Walt Disney World Marathon in January. In exchange for a professional five-month marathon training program and transportation to the marathon site, each participant is asked to collect donations for stroke research.

Runners Chuck and Carolyn are joined by stroke survivor Ray Driscoll (right) of Melrose.
Train to End Stroke was created to raise critically needed funds for stroke research and educational programs. Participants either run or walk a full marathon (26.2 miles) or half marathon (13.2 miles) and participate in honor of a "Stroke Hero," someone who has experienced a stroke.

For more information about Train to End Stoke, call the American Stroke Association office at 1-800-662-1701. To learn more about stroke, call 1-888-4-stroke or visit the American Stroke Association web site at

More on the tattooed poultry

In response to the Mosquito's "Where in Carlisle?" photo in the September 27 issue, Jamie Klickstein responds —

"No story about this particular 'Tattooed Poultry' sign could be complete without the man who spent his life working with those chickens — Mr. Paul Swanson.

"By the time I took this picture in 1982 I had experienced several close encounters with those very chickens — some I even refused to try to collect eggs from.

"Mr. Swanson and his farm are a piece of Carlisle history that should always be preserved."
