|TRAILS AND TRIBULATIONS. Carlisle Trails Committee members work to secure a 30-foot boardwalk on the Red Tail Trail not far from the Greenough dam on the Greenough Land. Rising flood waters caused the boardwalk to float off its concrete bumpers. Marc Lamere is pounding in fence posts and Henry Cox is securing ropes to keep the boardwalk directly over the bumpers so it will settle down onto the bumpers once the water recedes.
