Three Carlisle runners in 108th Boston Marathon
Runners and their net times are:
Quentin Hart..........3:28:06
Ron Kmiec..............3:48:55
Karen Ringheiser....3:44:04

Quentin Hart of West Street, age 20, ran the Boston Marathon for the first time, running for the National Liver Foundation. He has done distance running before, in Carlisle and at CCHS. He is currently a student at Vanderbilt University.

Ron Kmiec of Bingham Road made his 32nd consecutive finish in this year's marathon. There are only nine other runners who have more consecutive marathon runs, according to Kmiec. "It felt hotter than usual, but it got cooler heading into town,"said Kmiec. Despite the fact that he was still recovering from an injured hamstring, Kmiec's time was 20 minutes faster than last year's. "It wasn't as easy as I had expected. It was 20 minutes slower than I had hoped it to be."

Karen Ringheiser of Garnet Rock Lane has run the Boston Marathon in the past. This year, she was running in the 40 to 49 age group. "The temperature, at 71 degrees, was a little too warm for me," she said. "There was no wind until the finish line, where the temperature was still up at 69," continued Ringheiser. "The last marathon I ran, in October on Cape Cod, I had a time that was 10 minutes faster." Ringheiser spent 26 weeks training for the Boston Marathon, running approximately 90 miles per week.

Carlisle parade leader appears in TV film

Lola, the horse who led the Carlisle Old Home Day parade last year and will do so again this year, has entered the world of film. Lola, who is owned by Deb and Dave Toher of Curve Street, has just finished Slave Catcher, a documentary that will appear on the History Channel in May. Filming occurred between 2 p.m. on Saturday and 2 a.m. on Sunday at Arena Farm in Concord.

Dave Toher will be doing some more film riding June 12-19 when he goes to Reserve, New Mexico to participate in a demonstration film for participants in an upcoming TV reality show. Lola stays at home for this trip, but Dave will be back in the saddle for Old Home Day.

• Two Carlisle artists are showing their sculptures in Concord in the annual Earth Month Exhibit, which opens with a reception this afternoon from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Blanchard Gallery in Emerson Umbrella, 40 Stow Street. There will be music, poetry and refreshments.

William Turville's pieces are titled "Contemplation" and "Muses." Bonnie Miskolczy's "Time Catcher" and "Bed Rocks" are outdoor sculptures and both are made of found objects, wood, metal and stones.

The show is sponsored by Musketaquid, the Arts and Environment organization, and will close by May 23.

Sam Petrie of Baldwin Road, an eighth grader at the Fenn School, played the cello in the Northeast Junior District Orchestra concert at the Lowell High School on Saturday, April 9.
