From the Norwich listserv this morning:
This week promises rainy days and the coming of the spring frog populations. Many of these frogs will cross roads on their way to breeding sites in vernal pools. Some frogs are luckier than others and as Kermit was fond of saying “its not easy bein’ green”.
Should you happen upon the less fortunate frogs in your commute home, I would be most grateful if you would hop on over, bag them up for me and drop me an email. Please note the location where each frog croaked (see what I did there?).
We will also gladly accept your road-killed salamanders.
Reminds me of the documentary Cane Toads: An Unnatural History, which it seems you can actually watch in full on YouTube.
Don’t forget to join our Upper Valley Calendar group on Facebook for suggestions of things to do in the area
We just hit 500 members and we are pumped about it.
~*~*~*~*~* Click here *~*~*~*~*~ to join the group, Upper Valley Calendar (Hosted by the Valley News)!
Wondering what it’s all about? The UVC group is a place where people in the Upper Valley who are looking for things to do can solicit ideas from the community and five Valley News editors and reporters.
Not sure where to take your visiting 5-year-old nephew on a rainy weekend? Want to dust off those hiking boots, but not sure where to start? Planning date night? Ask away!
First, see this excerpt from a story that appeared in the Valley News on Wednesday:
A beloved circus performer known as Grandma the clown has resigned from the Big Apple Circus following accusations that he pressured a 16-year-old aerialist to pose for pornographic photos.
The circus’ chairman, Neil Kahanovitz, told The New York Times on Tuesday that Barry Lubin, 65, offered his resignation on Friday, shortly after the woman came forward.
The allegations “are true. What I did was wrong, and I take full responsibility for my actions,” said Lubin, who apologized in a statement released by his lawyer.
Read the full thing here.
Now, here is a press release the town of Norwich put out at 3:47 this afternoon:
The news release notes that “if there are individuals that believe Mr. Lubin acted inappropriately, despite the Town’s assurance, those individuals are encouraged to contact the Norwich Police Department (802-649-1460).”
