EDITORIAL

Mr. President, one more question

Local independent bookstores are wonderful places to talk to neighbors, browse new titles and catch up on a little politics. Just ask Bill Clinton.

Last Saturday around noon, during some unplanned holiday shopping in a nearby village, my wife and I ducked into the bookstore for what we thought would be a quick purchase of a few fiction hardcovers. “Look who’s standing over there,” she said, nudging me as she gestured with her head towards the small checkout counter a few feet away. A man with short, white hair and reading glasses propped on the bridge of his nose was standing alone, holding a small shopping bag of five or so books, talking to the storeowner about politics. The unmistakable voice from Hope, Arkansas, was the giveaway.

Former President Clinton turned and took a few steps away from the counter. We said hello, others did, too, and then the first question came, about the election. He stopped, answered succinctly, and waited for the next question. He was in no rush to leave. The group of book enthusiasts in the store at the time — just a few at first, growing to maybe 10 at most — formed a semi-circle around a low book display, hanging on his every word.

The historic moment was lost on no one. It had been a month since his wife, the former New York Senator and U.S. Secretary of State, lost the bitterly contested election. The world still felt upside down, and he needed to talk as eagerly as we wanted to listen.

Pound Ridge seniors get in the holiday spirit

Luncheon guest Rose Lamont Stackhouse.

 

Poinsettias by the dozens, punch with sherbet and a special visit by Old St. Nick were just a few of the highlights enjoyed by more than 80 Pound Ridge senior citizens, who came to Conant Hall Dec. 8 for the town’s annual Neighbor to Neighbor Holiday Lunch.

“It’s a wonderful time for family,” said Rose Lamont Stackhouse, one of the luncheon guests, who said she has lived in Pound Ridge since 1975. She said she enjoyed socializing with friends she has “known for years and now sees here.”

Volunteers organized by Louise Paolicelli, senior coordinator in the Pound Ridge Recreation Department, transformed Conant Hall into a winter wonderland. Working the luncheon, they served a welcome hot lunch of chicken and pork, mashed potatoes and string beans amandine.

As in past years, the holiday luncheon was a true community effort. A group of nursery school-aged children from the Pound Ridge Community Church Play School crossed the street to Conant Hall to serenade the seniors with holiday songs. Read more >
