Posted on June 16, 2011 |

The officer made it clear that Brandon police do not patrol Leicester unless asked by another authority, or if they are investigating a case.

LEICESTER — In the living room of her Leicester home, Kristin Francoeur fed alpaca fiber into a wood spinning wheel, listening to its quiet click as she spun.

“This one has a tiny squeak, so we’ll have to adjust it,” she said.

The squeak, she said, was in the pedal. Over the past few years, Kristin has gotten some practice figuring out where the sounds are coming from: She tests each Green Mountain Spinning Wheel as her husband, Paul, makes them.

LEICESTER — Even hundreds of feet from the Moore family’s Leicester home, fragrance hangs in the air. Step inside the house, and the scent is even stronger: lemongrass, pine, cinnamon, lavender and peppermint, and a background bouquet that’s best described as clean.

And although a visitor is immediately struck by the strong smells, no one in the family notices the scent.

“We don’t even smell it anymore,” said Linda Moore, mother of the clan.

Last spring, the school received a $50,000 energy efficiency and conservation block grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the economic stimulus law) to fund the installation of a new, energy-efficient boiler and water heater in the school.

LEICESTER — In front of a group of his peers on Tuesday morning, third-grader Noah Witt’s hair was standing on end.

This wasn’t just some kind of pre-Halloween trick. Standing in the National Science Center Mobile Discovery Unit — an 18-wheeler — Witt was feeling the effects of static electricity being pumped through his body by a Van de Graaf generator.
