LEICESTER — Jenny Beck sits at a picnic table with her back to Lake Dunmore and the rising mountains on the opposite shore. A chorus of finely tuned chamber music wafts across the field where she’s seated. The sweet sounds emanate from the Rec Hall off to her right.

NEW HAVEN — At a hastily called meeting late last month, the New Haven selectboard voted to restructure its highway department and terminated the positions of road foreman and highway assistant, effective immediately.

NEW HAVEN — Lucien Paquette sat back in a wooden chair at his kitchen table last week and laughed. He was telling a story about a phone conversation he’d recently had with a doctor who asked him for his birth date.

“Eight, fourteen, sixteen,” Paquette had responded.

The doctor was puzzled, and not amused.

“I had to specify, it was 1916,” Paquette said, chuckling about the confusion.
