Letter To The Editor
To the good citizens of
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
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
My brother Mark Colby
split the granite. My son James helped build also.
Thanks for the granite.

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.

keep the property. Smile. You are now in cahoots Hold Fast.
Letter To The Editor
To the taxpayers of
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
