(Photo by Roger Farrington) Last week we featured the opening reception for the exhibit "Torn in Two" at the Boston Public Library. This week we feature the open- ing reception of "Home Front: Boston and the Civil War," which was sponsored by the Associates of the BPL. This exhibit will also be on view through the end of the year. Both shows honor the 150th anniversary of tha d Les cog Lions in the country. The exhibition is on dis- play and viewable during regular Boston Public Li- brary hours. For more infor- mation, visit wwto.bpl, or9. Congratulations are in order to the talented Caron Le Brun who wrote three feature articles for the inau- gural issue of "POL0/North- east Magazine." We visited for an online peek and thoroughly enjoyed perusing all the articles, especially Caron's features on "Hats," "The Ultimate Newport Weekend" and "The Fine Art of Sabrage." As ev~t~one kn6ws, hatg have been in the news lately, especially since the Royal Wedding. Goorin Brothers, with a local boutique on New- bury Street, has attracted the likes of Tom Brady, George Clooney and Brad Pitt. There, we are told, we can find fashionable hats for men, women and children. Newport, Rhode Island has always been a destination for "Socially Set" Boston- ians. The Vanderbilt Grace, a 1909 restored luxury man- sion hotel, beckons us after reading Caron's article. Suffice it to say that The White Barn Inn in Kenne- bunkport, Maine, is a sister property. Sabrage is a technique for opening a Champagne bottle Boutique, lalso on Newbury Street, has hosted some fun and fabulous invitation-0nly sabrage events. According to publisher Nancy Keller, the new pub- lication "spotlights the game of Polo, one of the world's old- est sports, with breathtaking photography and fascinating articles. With its classic glossy format, it is the per- fect 'coffee table' material, a keepsake well beyond the polo seasonF We look forward to future editions! While on the subject of horses, we are all invited to "Boston Jumps on the Common," a preview of the Putnam Boston Equestrian Classic, where we can enjoy Olympic Grand Prix jumping followed by an exhibition by the Boston Park Rangers Mounted Unit.

The Herrmann family, breeders and trainers of the famed Lipizzan horse, demonstrate the highest levels of horsemanship. These stallions are among the last horses capable of executing the "Airs Above the Ground" maneuvers, dramatic leaps and plunges that were developed as aggressive battle maneu- vers in the sixteenth cen- tury and are now among the most beautiful dis- plays of equine grace and strength.
