The annual meeting of the North Salem Historical Society (NSHS) was a history buff’s dream come true. While the evening’s presentation of old photographs and stories of when the area was a patchwork of dairy farms linked by dirt roads were enough to satisfy, organizers said the dinner was the highlight of the evening.
“The potluck dinner has been a popular feature of our meeting,” said trustee Mike Chaves. “Members proudly prepare some of their signature dishes for everybody to enjoy. We contact our members in advance and make an effort to get a variety of dishes from appetizers through desserts.”

Whether it’s the NFL, which has alienated much of the passionate fan base that pays its bills, by allowing unpopular protests during game time. Or like Hollywood, it’s an industry full of unprosecuted serial abusers that “everyone knew ...

Why Smart People Get Stuck When Organizing

There are a couple of issues at play ...

It’s all over but the shouting; the voting has ended, and the results are in: Depending on where you live, local elections are out of control. Not the part about casting ballots. The part about those mailers, ads and what-not telling you how to cast your ballot.

I don’t have any proof at hand that fake news has overtaken even town-level politics, though nothing would surprise any ...
