Many thanks from the Chichester Charrette team to Stonefence of Pittsfield (Dan, Mark, and Jim) for volunteering their time and talents to build the beautiful stone planter at the Grange/Town Hall in Chichester.



Letter To The Editor


To the good citizens of Chichester,

I think it was mid-September when Kate Hall called and asked if we could build some stonework like we have in Pittsfield around the message board at the Town Hall in Chichester.


She told me the Heritage Commission would help. Sounded like a deal to me. That same evening Lucille Noel called to see what she could do to move the project forward. I told her we needed granite and plenty of it to do a 10’X5’ rectangle around the sign.


Within two weeks, my brother Mark and I were looking at granite with Lucille. She found Jim Plunkett, who gave us and trucked in 7 or 8 beautiful foundation granite from up on Bear Hill from an old barn. This we used mostly on the cap.


Gary Tasker took a chance and let me on his stone yard in Loudon. With a can of orange paint, I marked his best 8 pieces. We used his material for two base corners and some cap, and more base. He delivered his best pieces to this project.


Barbara Frangione donated 5 pieces of granite from her farm. This is the corner stone left toward the road and several pieces in the wall and one cap piece. Somebody delivered these pieces.


Somebody delivered some other nice pieces: 1 corner stone rear right corner and several other pieces we used for base. Somebody brought other pieces which were invaluable.


My brother Mark Colby split the granite. My son James helped build also.


Thanks for the granite.

Dan Schroth Piermarocchi



Letter To The Editor


We hear that now is the time of Open Government, much talk and no change.


In Chichester, however, a way has evolved to make this work for you. First, avoid paying property taxes for five, six, and perhaps even seven years. Make promises, excuses, and threats. All have proven effective. It would help to get out of state investor sand lawyers involved. Plead your financial status. This, of course, behind closed doors, so it won’t be checked and does not need to be accurate.


This course, pursued in closed executive sessions with the select board, will result in The Deal. It is the time of The Deal, see national news.


Currently, taxes, interest, and penalties, with proper cahooting, should result in a deal.


Sixty percent of the bill you keep, forty percent of the bill the town gets. Of course, you keep the property. Smile. You are now in cahoots Hold Fast.


Allen Mayville




Letter To The Editor

To the taxpayers of Chichester


I hope that you have noted how critical the property tax rates are becoming. We all need to stand up and do our share. 


Unfortunately, we have a situation where one individual has resorted to threats, confusion, and lies to make deals away from public view, with the selectboard, purposely to reduce his tax bill, seven years in arrears, by more than half.


Outraged taxpayers will have an Orange Flyer delivered with The Sun. 


Concerned citizens, please take notice. This flyer will outline the important facts.
