Why I love Canterbury
'Harry Kinter, Canterbury'
When my wife Sarah and I moved to Canterbury over 30 years ago, we knew we had come to the right place. Never was our decision more positively ratified than in watching our community come together to discuss and decide the issue of the future of the conservation land located in the Intervale.
There were nothing but polite questions and answers on both sides of the issue. The moderator, Wayne Mann, did his usual excellent job of maintaining decorum, and the chairman of the selectmen, Bob Steenson, did an outstanding job of explaining the town's position and answering some very difficult questions with great aplomb. Both the Mahoneys and the Glineses made excellent presentations of their respective plans.
It is too bad that there can be only one solution to this perplexing issue. I greatly appreciate and admire the lives and the lifestyles of the Glines family, and I hope they continue to farm in Canterbury for another 100 or more years. But I welcome the Mahoneys to Canterbury and am sure that they will be a great asset to our community.
We are blessed to have new stewards of this wonderful piece of land and greatly appreciate the wisdom and magnanimity of Gary Hirshberg to make it possible.
