I  ran,  the  ground  dug  into  my  bare   feet,  cutting  me,  shredding  my  skin   with  its  rugged  fury.  It  was  unclear,   of  what  I  was  running  from.  For  all   I  knew,  it  was  me.  The  words  were   untrue,  and  yet  I  felt  them  clutching   my  thoughts  roughly. I  kept  running,  and  ahead,  some-­ thing  was  wrong.  Each  step  brought   me  closer  to  this  unknown  territory.   It   was   frightening,   what   I   saw,   an   agony  of  my  past.  I  wanted  to  stop,   to   run   back   to   where   I   had   come   from,   to   get   away   from   this   place.   But   it   was   dragging   me   forward,   and  no  matter  how  hard  I  struggled,   it   held   on.   It   was   impossible   to   escape  this  suffocating  grasp.  Then   there  was  only  one  step  between  me   and  whatever  lay  ahead.   I   knew   then,   that   I   could   not   turn   back,   that   this   was   the   end.   I   remembered   then,   just   a   minute   before,   as   if   I   were   running   from

something   so   real.   I   was   escaping   from   my   own   fear,   I   realized.   If   I   had  just  paused,  and  thought  about   running  back  to  what  I  had  left,  just   one   moment   before   the   realization   had   hit   me,   maybe   those   images   would   still   be   what   I   saw.   When   I   knew   I   was   too   late,   I   decided   to   embrace   this   frightening   knowl-­ edge.   I   leaped   into   the   air,   and   I   allowed  it  to  caress  me,  to  pull  me   down,   even   farther   away   from   the   beauty.   And   then   I   saw   the   sun,   slowly   peeking  its  head  up  from  its  hiding   place   beyond   the   horizon.   It   lit   up   my  face,  and  the  world  slid  through   that   tiny   funnel   of   light.   It   swirled,   all   the   colors   of   the   sunrise,   and   sunset,   the   colors   of   the   world   as   I   once   knew   it.   In   that   image   in   my   mind,   I   lifted   my   eyes   to   the   sky,   where  the  sun  glowed,  silently,  and  I   knew,  I  was  just  one  second  too  late.

Member of the Vermont Vegetable and Berry Growers Association and of the Vermont Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market. Owned by: Ed & Paula Barnes

After exiting the dairy industry we have transitioned into growing produce for market and creating handcrafted items. We are entering our 4th year of growing produce. Handcrafted items have been available for 7 years at various farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s markets and businesses. This year we hope to have our gift shop open for the Fall season. We start the season with fresh vegetables, picked daily and available through the Fall. With Fall comes pumpkins, mums and Fall decorations, ending the season with Christmas trees, wreaths and kissing balls. Handcrafted products consist of wooden LWHPVĂ HHFHPLWWHQVEODQNHWVDQGPDQ\PDQ\PRUHVHZQ items. We offer quality produce and handcrafted items, as well as locally produced maple syrup, honey, apples, cider, Christmas trees and wreaths at a reasonable prices.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   going   around By  MICHAEL  CSASZAR,  MD Medical   professionals   around   Addison   County   are   seeing   increasing  numbers  of  patients  with   tick   bites.   This   means   increasing   concerns  about  Lyme  disease.   Spring   is   an   important   time   of   year  to  remember  some  basic  facts   about   ticks   and   Lyme   disease   in   order   to   protect   yourself,   your   family,  and  our  communities: Â&#x2021; /\PH GLVHDVH LV D EDFWHULDO infection   transmitted   solely   by   the   deer  tick.  Other  ticks  and  insects  do   not  transmit  Lyme  disease.

Â&#x2021; 7LFN UHSHOOHQWV FRQWDLQLQJ DEET   can   be   sprayed   on   the   skin   and  clothing,  and  permethrin  can  be   applied   to   clothing   to   prevent   tick   bites. How  should  I  remove  a  tick? Everybody   seems   to   know   a   different   way   to   remove   a   tick.   Petroleum  jelly,  nail  polish,  alcohol   and   hot   matches   are   just   a   few   of   the   tricks   people   try.   In   truth,   the   best  way  to  remove  a  tick  is  using   tweezers  or  small  forceps.  If  you  do   not  have  tweezers,  then  use  paper  or   FORWKWRSURWHFW\RXUÂżQJHUV Â&#x2021;*UDEWKHWLFNDVFORVHWRWKHVNLQ as  possible.

Â&#x2021;,IPRXWKSDUWVUHPDLQLQWKHVNLQ after  tick  removal,  leave  them  alone   as   they   almost   always   fall   out   on   their  own. Is   it   skin   irritation   or   a   Lyme   rash? One   of   the   most   common   concerns   raised   by   patients   is   the   local   redness   usually   seen   in   the   hours   after   removing   a   tick.   This   early   irritation   is   from   the   tick   saliva,   and   similar   to   what   you   see   after  a  typical  insect  bite.  Rash  due   to   Lyme   disease   occurs   at   the   site   RIWKHWLFNELWHXVXDOO\VHYHQWR days   after   the   bite,   but   can   range   IURP WKUHH WR  GD\V 5HPHPEHU ticks   that   are   attached   for   less   than    KRXUV DOPRVW QHYHU WUDQVPLW Lyme  disease. When  should  I  get  treated  with   antibiotics? Only  your  doctor  or  provider  can  

determine  if  antibiotics  are  needed.   Often  this  means  you  need  to  be  seen   LQ WKH RIÂżFH 6RPHWLPHV ZH PD\ give  you  a  single  dose  of  antibiotics   to   prevent   infection.   Other   times   we   may   give   you   several   days   of   antibiotics  to  treat  Lyme  disease. Please   remember   that   in   the   vast   majority   of   cases   of   tick   bites,   antibiotics   are   not   necessary.   In   order   to   avoid   unnecessary   antibiotic   use,   and   the   increasing   problem   of   antibiotic   resistance,   it   is   important   to   work   with   your   provider  to  determine  if  and  when  to   use  antibiotics.     Where   can   I   get   more   information?   The  family  of  Porter  primary  care   clinics  is  here  to  help  you.   <RXFDQDOVRÂżQGLQIRUPDWLRQRQ the  Vermont  Department  of  Health:   http://www.healthvermont.gov.

and  requisite  evening  meeting  com-­ mitments   were   off-­putting   to   some   prospective  applicants. It  also  took  three  tries  for  Conley   to   land   an  ACSU   business   manager   after   an   initial   hire   died   tragically   and   the   second   stopped   showing   up   to   work.   Laura   Nassau   has   been   serving   as   business   manager   since   February  of  2012. Conley  said  assembling  a  full  staff   and   seeing   it   work   well   together   is   perhaps  his  favorite  accomplishment   of  his  two-­year  tenure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   easiest   part   of   my   job   was   helping   these   very   talented   folks   work   together,â&#x20AC;?   Conley   said,   refer-­ ring   to   all   levels   of   administration   functioning  in  the  ACSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  seven  el-­ ementary  schools,  high  school,  mid-­ GOH VFKRRO DQG FHQWUDO RIÂżFH Âł7KDW translates   into   support   for   teachers,   which   helps   students   do   their   best   work.â&#x20AC;? Asked  what  advice  he  would  give   in  passing  the  torch  to  Burrows,  Con-­ ley  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  need  an  appreciation   for  small  communities  and  multiple   boards.  Each  of  the  communities  has   a  unique  personality  and  each  of  the   schools  has  a  unique  personality.â&#x20AC;? And   Conley   said   that   uniqueness   among   schools   should   be   respected   and  nurtured. At   the   same   time,   he   acknowl-­ edged  the  work  of  the  ACSU  Study   Committee  in  considering  some  po-­ tential   governance   consolidations   to   lessen   district   bureaucracy   and   create   more   collaboration   among   schools   to   save   money.   Some   com-­ munity  members  are  concerned  that   governance   consolidations   could  

become   a   precursor   to   some   school   closings,  considering  student  enroll-­ ment  in  most  regions  of  Vermont  is   declining. Conley   anticipates   a   majority   of   Middlebury-­area   parents   wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   en-­ dorse   closing   and   consolidating   lo-­ cal  schools.  And  he  agrees  with  that   position,   believing   less   dramatic   changes   could   be   implemented   to   produce  cost  savings  short  of  closing   schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   complicated   supervisory   union  in  Middlebury  recognizes  the   value   of   smalls   towns   and   school   boards,â&#x20AC;?  Conley  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  think  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   value   that   people   like   and   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   want  to  give  up.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   intrigued   by   the   notion   of   creating   one   school   board   to   gov-­ ern  the  seven  elementary  schools  in   ACSU   member   towns   of   Middle-­ bury,   Bridport,   Cornwall,   Ripton,   Salisbury,  Shoreham  and  Weybridge.   This  would  reduce  bureaucracy  and   lead  to  a  more  universal  supervision   of  programs  in  all  of  the  elementary   schools,  according  to  Conley. As   a   resident   of   nearby   Hunting-­ ton,   Conley   will   continue   to   watch   ACSU  activities  with  interest  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  but   heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   do   it   without   having   to   attend   three   or   four   evening   meetings   per   week.  At  70,  Conley  still  looks  for-­ ward   to   harvesting   wood   from   his   property  to  stoke  his  outdoor  boiler.   He  and  his  family  have  no  big  travel   plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   love   it   in   Huntington,â&#x20AC;?   he   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   like   being   at   home;Íž   I   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   need  to  go  anyplace.â&#x20AC;?

Whatever  project  is  picked  and  ap-­ proved  will  receive  100  percent  state   and  federal  funding. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   already   becoming   clear   that   the  selected  project  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  whether  tun-­ nel  or  new  bridges  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  will  involve  a  

lot  of  concrete. Colgan   outlined   a   construction   method   that   will   involve   dropping   6-­foot-­long,   pre-­fabricated   concrete   sections   into   the   project   corridor.   If   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  tunnel,  they  would  be  concrete   boxes;Íž  if  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  bridge,  they  would  be   U-­shaped   sections.   Colgan   said   the   concrete   would   be   reinforced   and   2   feet  thick. Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   meeting   drew   more   than   60   people,   many   of   whom   weighed   in   on   the   project   options   through  an  electronic  survey.  Those   results  indicated  majority  support  for   a   tunnel   solution.   Most   respondents   said  they  were  especially  concerned   about   how   construction   might   tem-­ porarily  impede  access  to  downtown   businesses. Residents   listened   with   inter-­ est   to   the   VHB   presentation   and   voiced   some   trepidations,   includ-­ ing   whether   a   tunnel   might   provide   an   hangout   for   drug   users,   whether   the   heavy   construction   work   might   damage   nearby   St.   Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Epis-­ copal   Church,   and   whether   the   tun-­ nel  surface  would  be  strong  enough   to  withstand  an  earthquake  and/or  a   permanent  stop  for  the  ACTR  bus. Colgan   acknowledged   the   poten-­ tial  for  a  tunnel  to  provide  cover  for   illegal  activities,  something  the  town   would  have  to  police.  He  said  he  was   FRQÂżGHQWDWXQQHOZRXOGVWDQGXSWR WUXFN WUDIÂżF EXVHV DQG 0RWKHU 1D-­ ture.

Darik  Knutsen  as  Eugene  Onegin  is  a  girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  worst   nightmare.  Tall,  dark,  handsome  and  disinterested,   Mr.  Knutsen  uses  his  powerful  baritone  as  a  weap-­ on  in  his  casual  rejection  of  Tatiana  and  is  so  con-­ vincing  in  his  self  absorption  that  his  comeuppance   at  the  end  of  the  work  is  marvelously  satisfying. To  play  the  role  of  Tatiana  all  you  need  to  have   is  an  amazing  soprano  voice,  be  very  lovely  to  look   at,  have  the  capability  of  expressing  a  vast  expanse   of   human   emotion   with   depth   and   sincerity   and,   RK\HVSHUIRUPWKDWPLQXWHDULDVRPHRILWĂ&#x20AC;DW on  your  back.  The  marvelous  Suzanne  Kantorski-­ Merrill   does   all   that   with   grace.   She   charms   and   thrills   with   her   wonderful   soprano   voice   and   her   elegant  stage  presence.

Dawn  Pierceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Olga  brings  an  easygoing  sen-­ suality   to   her   role,   which   contrasts   wonderfully   with   the   more   tormented   passion   of   her   sister,   Tatiana.  Lisa  Chavez  as  the  mother,  Madame  La-­ rina,  brings  a  lovely  warmth  and  gravitas  to  the   evening.  Erik  Kroncke,  a  returning  artist  to  OCM   is  solid  and  very  endearing  as  Tatianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  adoring   husband,  and  Brad  Raymond  amuses  and  charms   with   his   lovely   performance   as   the   old   French-­ man,   Monsieur   Triquet.   A   highlight   among   all   these   marvelous   supporting   performers   is   Jenni   %DQNDVWKHQXUVH:LWKKHUULFKFRQÂżGHQWPH]-­ zo  soprano  she  goes  for  laughs  but  still  provides

(Continued  from  Page  1A) work   with   students   and   teachers   at   all  grade  levels  in  a  variety  of  roles. Staying  on  makes  sense  to  Woods,   who   said   she   began   teaching   at   the   HOHPHQWDU\VFKRROOHYHOÂżYHGHFDGHV ago  for  one  central  reason.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   always   had   summer   jobs   with   kids.  It  was  always  kids,  kids,  kids,â&#x20AC;?   Woods   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   was   just   working   with  kids  I  found  fascinating.â&#x20AC;? That   is   what   kept   her   in   the   pro-­ fession,  and  is  why  she  is  not  simply   walking  away.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   why   I   stayed   in   so   long,   because   of   the   kids,â&#x20AC;?   Woods   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  why  â&#x20AC;Ś  I  am  so  excited  about   the  fact  â&#x20AC;Ś  next  year  I  am  volunteer-­ ing.â&#x20AC;? In   a   perfect   world,   Woods   might   not  retire  at  all.  But  she  is  a  longtime   multiple   sclerosis   patient,   and   last   fall  she  also  learned  she  has  a  heart   problem.  Woods  said  medication  for   the  new  condition  has  slowed  her.   Meanwhile,  the  VUES  enrollment,   like   that   at   other   schools,   has   been   dropping:   Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   job   was   cut.   As   the  senior  teacher,  she  could  remain   on  the  payroll,  but  that  would  mean  a   co-­worker  would  lose  a  job.   All   things   considered,   and   with   Sargent   willing   to   create   a   unique   volunteer   arrangement,   Woods   de-­ cided  the  time  was  right.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last  fall  I  found  out  I  had  a  heart   condition.   Who   knew?â&#x20AC;?   she   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;So   I   have   all   these   things,   which   is  part  of  the  reason  I  said  OK.  And   they  cut  my  job.  And  I  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  want  to   take  anybody  elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  job.  So  I  said  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   time.   My   bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   telling   me   some-­ thing  here.â&#x20AC;? But   Woods   declined   to   take   the   Addison   Northwest   Supervisory   Unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   early   retirement   package   because  it  â&#x20AC;&#x153;would  be  like  being  paid   to  not  work.â&#x20AC;?  Nor  did  she  want  regu-­ larly  scheduled  part-­time  work.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   want   to   be   free   and   clear   and   be  here  at  times  that  are  good  for  me   physically  and  to  really  sense  how  I   can  be  of  use,â&#x20AC;?  Woods  said. 7KDW ZDV ÂżQH ZLWK 6DUJHQW ZKR praised   Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   â&#x20AC;&#x153;enthusiasm   and   gung-­ho   positive   attitudeâ&#x20AC;?   and   said   Woods   would   be   an   asset   when   the   ÂżQH SRLQWV DUH ZRUNHG RXW IRU KHU volunteer   program   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   for   which   Woods   will   provide   thousands   of   books  and  Legos  she  owns.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   looking   forward   to   hav-­ ing  her  come  back  and  provide  some   enrichment   activities   for   kids,â&#x20AC;?   Sar-­ gent  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  really  havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  worked   out  any  details  yet,  other  than  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   committed  a  space  for  her  and  sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   packed  some  of  her  stuff.â&#x20AC;? Former   VUES   Principal   Sandy   Bassett,   who   worked   with   Woods   for   more   than   a   decade,   also   gave   her  high  marks.  Bassett  said  Woods   helped  the  administration  use  school-­ wide   test   results   to   shore   up   educa-­ tional  weak  points,  and  he  cited  her   advanced   technical   knowledge   and   her   dedication   to   uncovering   and   using  â&#x20AC;&#x153;new  and  contemporary  meth-­ odsâ&#x20AC;?  in  her  classroom.   More  than  anything,  Bassett  point-­ ed   to   Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   dedication   to   her   stu-­ dents.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;She  loved  to  teach  and  loved  the   kids,â&#x20AC;?   Bassett   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teaching   was   her  life.  She  will  tell  you  that.â&#x20AC;? In   fact,   Woods   did   so.   She   could   not   pick   out   any   highlights   from   KHU RQH \HDU DV D 98(6 ÂżUVWJUDGH teacher,   her   decade   spent   both   as   a   part-­time   art   teacher   at   VUES   and   a   part-­time   photography   teacher   at   Vergennes   Union   High   School,   her
