LINCOLN — The election for the two-year seat on the Lincoln selectboard will feature the two top vote-getters in last year’s selectboard race.

So on Town Meeting Day she stood outside the town offices and lobbied Lincoln residents to write her in on the ballot. Already on the ballot was incumbent Ellie Bryant, a recent appointee running to keep her seat. Bryant won the...

I want to thank all the people who helped get me safely (and unhurt) out of my car when it almost went into the New Haven River in Lincoln in a white-out on Dec. 18. It was a tricky rescue on a steep bank and in nasty weather. Everyone was  kind and helpful: fire, EMTs and police, as well as April Mastersson, who happened to be passing by and who stayed with me and kept me focused until the Lincoln firepeople arrived. Thank you all! Jean Arrowsmith Lincoln
