Tom Caswell.jpg

Here’s a guy who’s all about the music. He doesn’t have long, tangled, rockstar hair; he doesn’t add flashy dance moves; and he definitely doesn’t wear skinny, leather trousers. Nope, Tom Caswell keeps his focus on the music.

MIDDLEBURY — When you live to 90, it’s safe to say that you’ve seen some stuff. It’s also safe to say, getting old is tough. Loved ones pass on, you move into assisted living, you lose your driver’s license and your memories… and even a rhyme can’t hide that it’s rough.

MIDDLEBURY — October 31 is right around the corner. For some, this means turning out all the lights, heading upstairs with a book and ignoring the witches, wild animals and super heroes prowling the streets for candy. But that’s lame, and boring. And that’s not Patrick Krok-Horton. He gets into Halloween, and I mean, really into it.

Mike DeBonis’s curiosity got the best of him last summer, when he decided to spend two weeks of his vacation hiking the Long Trail in 1917 style. You know, wearing wool knickers, carrying a pack basket, sleeping under a twine-supported tarp and eating cold, canned fish for breakfast.

Not every artist likes to be boxed in. In fact, very few do. But for Claudia Carl, designing a mural on an 8-by-10-foot grid — er, chain link fence — with small plastic cups sounded, well, fun.

“I have always enjoyed doing designs on graph paper,” said Carl, an artist from Cornwall. “I love geometrics and I love color. Trying to figure out how to do art on the fence sounded like such a fun idea.”
