Wilton loses two outspoken advocates for seniors - Thehour.com

Monday, September 19, 2016

WILTON — It is a rare afternoon for late August. A cool breeze is blowing and there is hardly any humidity at all as a group of senior citizens prepare for a boat ride around the Thimble Islands in Branford.The weather is amenable and the water is calm. It is a perfect day for boating, but something just doesn’t feel right. This daylong outing for members of Stay at Home in Wilton is simply missing something, or somebody — two somebodies, to be precise.Stay at Home in Wilton lost two of its pioneering members last week when President Barbara Quincy passed on Saturday, Aug. 13 and co-founder Kenneth Dartley followed her later on Wednesday, Aug. 17.“They were both perfect examples of the kind of people we need in this town,” said Second Selectman Michael Kaelin. “They were the same kinds of people — they weren’t looking for credit or recognition, they were just looking to make a difference and do some good, and they both did a lot of that.”Kaelin said that without the influence and hard work that these two advocates affected in the community, Wilton would unlikely be as hospitable a home to the vibrant community of senior citizens that it is today.Both Dartley and Quincy grew concerned as they saw more and more of their friends move out of town as they grew older because the area was unaffordable and their homes grew harder to maintain.In response, Dartley and Quincy banded together with a small group of fellow Wiltonians and led the charge to create Stay at Home in Wilton in late 2009. The purpose of the program was to provide a range of services to the elderly, including household repairs, transportation, organizational events and a host of ot...

Gregory Rabassa, translator of Latin American literary masterworks, dies at 94 - Washington Post

Monday, June 27, 2016

García Márquez, Mario Vargas Llosa and other writers helped propel the Latin American literary boom of the 1960s and 1970s into an international phenomenon, died June 13 at a hospice facility in Branford, Conn. He was 94.A daughter, Kate Rabassa Wallen, confirmed the death to the Associated Press. The cause was not disclosed.Dr. Rabassa was teaching Spanish and Portuguese literature in New York when he was asked by a publisher to translate a 1963 novel by the Argentine writer Julio Cortázar. In 1966, Cortázar’s “Rayuela” was published in English as “Hopscotch,” and worldwide interest in Latin American fiction began to spread.Cortázar recommended Dr. Rabassa to a friend, García Márquez, whose “One Hundred Years of Solitude” had been published in Spanish in 1967. Three years later, Dr. Rabassa produced an English-language version so skillful that García Márquez said he preferred it to the original.The novel, which takes place near the author’s birthplace on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, helped define a style of writing called magic realism and became recognized as a towering masterpiece of 20th-century literature, selling more than 50 million copies.The tone of “One Hundred Years of Solitude” — blending the mythic and the mundane — was established in its opening sentence...
