THE NEW THIS OLD HOUSE.
If you're watching the "This Old House" series on Thursdays
at 8 p.m. (Channel 44) or Saturdays at 5 p.m. (Channel 2), you will
find the Carlisle property at 730 Concord Street looks different
than it does in real life. On television, the series is in the middle
of septic issues, while in real life, a new stone wall was built
last Friday and landscaping planted this past Tuesday. (For Carlisle's
high-tech families with TIVO, if you have had trouble videotaping,
try using the name "The New This Old House." If you use
"This Old House," you will end up with reruns.) (Photo

house in its current state.

meal together at the annual Spaghetti Supper on Tuesday, October
5. The Carlisle Public School welcomed Huang, Vice Principal of
the Jiangsu Provincial Qianhuang Senior Middle School, northwest
of Shanghai, in Hutang, Wujin District, Shangzhou, Jiangsu Province,
China. His school has 6,000 students and has been designated by
the Chinese Government as a top school in China. The Carlisle
School community welcomed Huang in an assembly, at the Spaghetti
supper and in classrooms all week, hoping to expand awareness
and knowledge of the Chinese language, people, and culture. Doyle
has been interested in this "principal shadowing project"
for several years, and hopes Carlisle can continue to participate
with increased communications and visits to a school in China.
