Town forest committee's charter explained

To the Editor:

I would like to add a bit more information to Cynthia Sorn's excellent article about the town forest committee. This ad hoc committee was established by vote of the board of selectmen in December 2001. The committee's charter is to investigate the history and boundaries of the property that was originally a portion of the town poor farm and to identify the approximate 46 acres that the Town Meeting of 1923 voted to reserve as a town forest.

McElroy family thanks those who helped care for their lost cat

To the Editor:

My family and I would like to thank Sally Lakness of Carlisle Animal Rescue and the Young family (Charlie, Tracy, William and Abigail) of Curve Street for their kindness and generosity in finding and caring for our lost cat, Gossamer. Gossamer was frightened and ran away when we moved from River Road to Rutland Street in July. Despite our attempts to find him, we had no success. Last week, four months after he was lost, a family on River Road called Sally to let her know that they had found a cat. Sally went and got him and asked the Youngs to care for him, which they did with great affection until we saw an ad in the Mosquito letting us know he'd been found. Gossamer is now very happy to be home, and our two toddler daughters couldn't be more thrilled to have him back.

Thanks to Sally for her important work doing animal rescue. She is a vital member of our community. Thanks to the family on River Road and to the Youngs for being great neighbors typical of all our Carlisle friends.
