Big salamander in Monkton_ cmyk 0765.jpg

THE NEW AMPHIBIAN crossings constructed under Monkton Road in Monkton last fall are really living up to their billing — one resident recently saw this 30-inch-long salamander preparing to climb into a tunnel! Quickly we discovered that the huge beast was actually a replica carved by Roger Cota of Monkton. His brother Denny sent in the photo. Good one, Roger!

BRISTOL — April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Like most people, those words would mean little to me prior to 2010, the year I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
