Hannah Rose Beakley

Jonathan and Allison Beakley of West Street are happy to announce the birth of their daughter, Hannah Rose Beakley, born on October 30. Hannah is welcomed by her big brother William.

Hannah was almost born on Route 9 in the car as we drove into Boston but Allison made it to the Brigham and Women's Hospital 15 minutes before the birth! It was a close call, but mother and baby are doing fine.

Over 15,000 people gathered on the Boston Common for a peace rally on November 3. Among the speakers were members of the clergy, historian and peace activist Howard Zinn, peace activist Randall Forsberg, Green Party gubernatorial candidate Jill Stein and actor/director/activist Tim Robbins. A spirited march down Tremont Street, through the South End onto Dartmouth Street and back to the Common on Boylston Street, followed. Pictured on the T on their way to the event are Gabor Miskolczy, John Ballantine, George Bishop, Ann Ballantine, Margaret Darling, Ernie Huber, Bob Luoma, Nick and Eric Darling, Eva Herndon, Max Barber, Bonnie Miskolczy and Alison Reid.

Our sympathy to . . .

Alison Thompson and William White and their sons Lawrence White and William White IV of Sunset Road on the death of Alison's mother Natalie Thompson, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Mrs. White, age 68, died after a long illness on October 23. A funeral Mass was held October 28 at St. Irene Catholic Church in Carlisle.


At the end of David Trask's letter on November 1, the Mosquito added "Carlisle Finance Committee," which inadvertently gave the impression that the letter was from the entire committee, rather than from an individual who is a member of the committee..
