A LIVABLE CARLISLE COMMUNITY (LCC). What would you want the town to be like in 20 years? As part of a public dialog on long-range planning, about 30 townspeople met on Tuesday evening, March 20, to discuss issues affecting Carlisle's future. LCC, which organized the meeting, is an informal group of residents and town officials interested in exploring options for the town's evolving needs. John Ballantine (standing) spoke about tax trends. The public is invited to a second meeting on Saturday, March 24, at 9 a.m. in Town Hall. For more information, call Marlene Fine (1-978-371-7542.)

Joan Rolfe of Nowell Farme Road photographed this beautiful fox which had emerged from the woods to inspect the six resident turkeys feasting on birdseed under the eaves of her Deck house. "The birds stayed very still," she reports, "clucking softly to each other. The fox then wandered off, knowing the very large birds were too big for him." (Photo by Joan Rolfe)
