No Golden Parachute at the Carlisle Mosquito

The Mosquito has received some concerned e-mails regarding a proposed sale of our paper to a Community Newsdealers Network. This evidently is a rumor started as a nod to April Fools Day, since the paper is not up for sale.

· The Boston Globe on Sunday announced the All-Scholastic winter-sports high-school athletes for 2006. Carlisle athletes to be honored were Cassi Knight of Fern Lane, a two-time All-Scholastic winner in cross-country for the CCHS cross-country team, and Sarah Landry of Forest Park Drive, a diver for the CCHS swim team.

Are you running in the Boston Marathon?

While the Carlisle Minutemen are marching to Concord on Patriot's Day, Monday, April 17, long-distance runners will be assembling in Hopkinton for the running of the Boston Marathon. So far the Mosquito has learned of three runners from Carlisle who will be taking part. They are Ronald Kmiec of Bingham Road who will be completing his 33rd consecutive finish; Karen Ringheiser of Garnet Rock Road; and Michele G. Van Leer of Hutchins Road. If there are others who will be running, let us know.

Heard Scholars. As a junior, Spivey will complete a two-year program designed to expose the scholars to the world of business and entrepreneurship, college admissions and application process, culture and the arts.

The Marian L. Heard Scholarship program seeks to identify youth who have demonstrated leadership ability, not necessarily those who have excelled in academic performance. Upon graduation and completion of the two-year program, these students will receive a $5,000 scholarship to assist with college or career advancement.
