Louise Chapman Dibble, retiring after 34 years serving on the board of directors of the Westbrook (Conn.) Public Library, was written up in the Essex, Conn., Main Street News. Honored in 1988 by the Association of Connecticut Library Boards as trustee of the year, Dibble has contributed for decades to the Westbrook community as educator and author. She taught English, French and Latin at Old Saybrook High School for 41 years ; Bern Porter , a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project and went on to a career as poet and artist, is one of Belfast, Maine "colorful characters," according to a Bangor Daily News feature last January. When he moved to Belfast in 1972, Porter brought along the Institute for Advanced Thinking,"a think tank" for the avant-garde. "My major focus," he said," is to carry on some of the principles of fusing physics with poetry and humanity."
