Kenzie & Gennaro - you will be missed

Kenzie & Gennaro - you will be missed

In spite of having seen Gone, Baby, Gone at least three times, it was only recently that a friend told me it was the 4th in a series of six crime thrillers by Dennis Lehane. I swear, I am not living under a rock, but how did I miss this for so long?! Common sense ain’t all that common. Sounds like something Patrick Kenzie might say, a "hard-boiled" private investigator in the very best of the tradition.  Read more.....

Hackmatack Theatre now sharing land with bison Farm

Hackmatack Theatre now sharing land with bison Farm

The ranch will officially open later this month on land that the Guptill family began farming in the 1600s and that has also served as a the home to Hackmatack Playhouse for the last 40 years. The theater and ranch will now share the land.
 
Conor Guptill was returning from a year studying abroad in Israel, musing about how he might settle back in New England, make use of his family’s beautiful farm land in Berwick and incorporate his spiritual pursuits from the seminary into his life plans.  Childhood friend Christopher Gallot of North Berwick, meanwhile, was spending days working at an architectural firm in downtown Boston but brewing up an idea to take him out of downtown Boston and closer to the land and his hometown in Maine.
Within three months, the two friends had plans to turn Guptill’s family farm into a working bison ranch.
