Two local towns join e-Vermont Project

P.O. BOX 338 ELIZABETHTOWN, NY 12932 Postal Patron

Vol. 2 No. 49 • December 29, 2010

By Joe Milliken Middletown Springs and Castleton were recently chosen to receive new computer systems through the e-Vermont Community Broadband Project, a federally-funded program developed by the Vermont Council on Rural Development . The pilot project recently announced 12 rural communities throughout the state to take part in the oneyear grant project initiated to help selected rural towns obtain access to high-speed internet services. Towns selected to receive services in 2011 also include Dover, Calais, Bridgewater, Vergennes, Hardwick, Fairfield, Westfield, Richford and Morristown. The service3based grants, which partner with Digital Wish to complete each town project, will provide equipment for each town library in order to provide more people with access to high-spped internet. The overall grant award for the project through federal stimulant funds totals more than $3.8 million. Ten other towns that were selected last year in this twoyear program included Rutland, West Rutland, Ludlow and Poultney, to name a few. With these towns’ having been complete in 2010, several are now looking into the possibility of expanding upon the work done to offer free public wireless access in their town centers. The town of Castleton has plans to develop projects in the spring to help bringa web presence throughout the village, once utilities have upgraded the infrastructure in order to provide these services. The e-Vermont program is also encouraging local businesses to create web sites, and upgrades are being considered for schools as well. Overall, the e-Vermont Community Broadband Project has brought new services to a total of 24 communities during the two-year program but also plans to continue serving Vermont communities through workshops, conferences and online tools.

Vermont Fire Academy in Pittsford receives sculptures By Joe Milliken PITTSFORD — Through the Vermont Art Council’s (VAC) “Art In State Buildings” program, the Vermont Fire Academy in Pittsford recently received a permanent installation of sculptures created by renowned artist Gregory Miguel Gomez, who lives locally in Putney. A reception for the artist was also recently held at the facility, located at 672 Academy Road, in Pittsford. The Art in State Buildings program is a partnership between the VAC and the Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services, and funded by the Art in State Buildings Act. The Act allows for up to two capitol construction projects be selected to participate each year. Site-specific works of art are then selected by Local Review Committees that are made up of agency and community representatives , as well as visual art experts. Some of the criteria of selection involves high artistic merit and quality of work, a demonstrated experience and ability to work with design professionals, engineers, community leaders, and other artists within a collaborative team context. Gomez is a painter and sculptor from a family of physicians and scientists. He has lived and shown his art all over the country, before finally settling in Vermont and Boston. Gregory received his undergraduate degree from Grinnell College and an MFA from Washington University, in St. Louis. He has taught at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore, The Rhode Island School of Design, Wellesley College and Wheelock ...Turn to page 6 to read more on the Fire Academy

Winter Carnival Adopts Lovin’ Ludlow LUDLOW—The Okemo Valley’s signature winter event has expanded and adopted a seasonallyappropriate topic for this year’s event. Scheduled for Feb. 10-13, 2011, the Lovin’ Ludlow Winter Carnival will play off the Valentines Day theme. “Our goal is to continue to expand the event and increase awareness via marketing such that we make Ludlow Winter Carnival a week-long event and Ludlow becomes a destination, thereby bringing additional visitors to our town,” says event chair Liz Crowley. “Our goal is to develop a sustainable brand and carnival that becomes the

defining event of Ludlow for the week of Valentines Day.” Multiple events are planned for each day, as well as some continuous events such as the townwide ice sculpture competition, a traffic-building village scavenger hunt and early-bird dinner specials. “Once again, we will be having a parade on Saturday night,” Crowley adds, “so we encourage everybody to participate and join us at Dorsey Park for the bonfire and spectacular fireworks!” ...Turn to page 5 to read more on the carnival

6 month old. Spayed Female. German Shepherd mix. I am a pretty little girl who has been allowed to have her own way for WAY too long. Not to bore you with a lot of science, but puppies need active exposure to new things and people and they need to have regular handling and plenty of guidance about what our teeth are and aren’t for . ..well, I haven’t had any of that and I am on the verge of adulthood so I’m really looking for someone to help me make up lost time.

5 year old. Spayed Female. Hound mix. I am a goofy girl looking for a Hound Lover. I have a lot of energy and good will and a typical nosedriven life…I like to know what’s going on. A fenced in yard will help you give me the exercise I need. And exercise I will need…an apartment or other city dwelling may not make me your neighbor ’s best friend as I can be on the vocal side.

2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Gray Tiger. Please, please consider giving a forever home. I came to the shelter as a stray, had a litter of kittens, spent time in foster and now want to go home. My kittens have all been adopted and here I am waiting for you.

The last dog and pony show By Alice Dubenetsky MONTPELIER – Gov. Jim Douglas treated the press to one last dog and pony show last week before retiring from office Jan. 4 after deciding not to run for re-election. Some members of the media had frequently called his press conferences “dog and pony shows” because of his habit of bringing a variety of speakers to the podium to help him make his point about programs and policies. This time, Douglas invited the press to meet him outside the state office building, where he appeared holding a yellow Golden Labrador Retriever named Annie and a cream colored miniature horse named Iroc, both borrowed from the Bortz family of Colchester. “We will end this tenure with a literal dog and pony show,” Douglas said. “They’re certainly better behaved than the legislature.” Douglas served four terms as governor, and was notably present at events from one

end of the state to the other, always ready with his easy, dry wit and his open admiration and affection for the people of Vermont. During his term in office he attended so many ceremonies and ribbon cuttings that one member of the press rather sarcastically dubbed him “Governor Scissor Hands.” After the press conference, Douglas invited the reporters to a conference room and invited them to take refreshments in the form of a big punch bowl of Kool-aide, a humorous reference to his belief that reporters did not accept his arguments frequently enough. Douglas, a Middlebury resident, will retire from public service when he officially leaves office in January. He has not yet announced his future goals beyond his plans to teach a course at Middlebury College, his alma mater.

GUESTVIEWPOINT Where do we go from here? By Tom Salmon


e just finished a brutal campaign season. Opeds are popping up and "Where do we go from here?" is one catchy title. I feel the need to address that question. My father often reminds me.... “It’s not what you say, it’s what they hear”, so I’m hoping you hear what I say in the spirit intended. In 2010, the President's Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform report was issued. Commission co-chair Erskine Bowles said: “We have started an adult conversation that will dominate the debate until the elected leadership in Washington does something real.” So the question “where do we go from here?” remains fertile. Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post writes, “This means telling both sides what they don't want to hear. Conservatives must accept..(x). Liberals must accept..(y).." Sounds simple enough. Are Conservatives and Liberals showing signs of communication? Who is communicating with the real people between Main St., School St. and State St.? Reform is going to require new players; people not usually involved in formal civic activities. Ms. Marcus fell prey to the same inclination many big brains do; they speak of the problem as if it lay on a table or under a glass case. Paralysis through analysis and no action. Politicians and “experts” need to push the "stop and listen" button.. Einstein reminds us to "find the opportunity in the problem" and that will call for a different strategy. As Auditor of Accounts, I warn of dangers, and the loss of "listening" is a real danger. I have testified on sensitive subjects like Sarcoidosis at the Bennington state office building when the legislature almost paid for that illness out of Workers Comp. I warned during the Act 62 Pre K discussion that resources for education are not infinite and may require rethinking how we deal with grades 11 and 12 to pay for age 3 and 4 educations. People are starving for the truth, bold ideas and direction. Let’s give them some. We are talking about problems we can fix. A year and a half ago I took ample criticism for speaking up on a sensitive unemployment issue. Leaders were afraid to discuss curbing benefits to protect the fund or warn citizens that unemployment benefits may run out before their old jobs reappeared. I was vilified in my attempt to call out that urgent self-preparation and adjustment is required because some of those jobs are not coming back. Now, leaders are still silent while those unemployed Vermonters start falling off unemployment support. It is very expensive when leaders focus only on votes, or promises to mitigate pain, or increase access or resources, while remaining afraid of looking the public in the eye and giving them the harsh truth. This country has a well-documented history of overcoming adversity, the ability of standing up straight immediately after getting knocked down. One of my favorite quotes is "People do not lack strength, they lack will"; it is up to us to demonstrate that we have the will to address our problems. Any government that provides benefits (education, health, employment, etc) without clear expectations from its citizens, in return, is committing a disservice. One of the promises I heard on the campaign trail was a "Single-Payer System in Vermont." I didn't hear much

Watch Out for a New Sales Tax on Services


n mid-January Vermont's Blue Ribbon Tax Commission will issue its final report. Its three members have agreed that their recommendations will be revenue neutral. Two of the three members have reportedly agreed to propose a reduction in Vermont's income and sales tax rates, paid for by terminating current deductions and exemptions and by broadening the sales and use tax to services. There are four main arguments for such an extension. The first, for all forms of consumption taxes, is that shifting the tax burden away from production and labor (incomes) to consumption encourages job-creating enterprises that can survive competitive pressures from the national and global economies. The second is that, since initiation of the sales tax in 1969, consumer preferences have shifted so that a far larger fraction of their spending is for services. The third is that revenues from sales plus service taxes tend to be less volatile during economic cycles. For instance, in a recession people tend to hang on to their older cars, and pay more for repair services. The fourth - and by far most compelling to politicians is that low tax rates applied to a much larger tax base can steadily be nudged upwards by what the voters perceive as insignificantly small increments, yielding an ever-increasing inflow of new tax dollars to sustain government spending. Florida State U. economist Randall Holcombe has observed "there is not much revenue to be gained from extending the current sales tax only to retail services, and from a political standpoint, nobody is going to go out on a limb to support a services tax unless it will mean substantially more revenue." In its pure form, a tax on services requires collection of the tax by accountants, architects, the print media, lawyers, doctors, dentists, barbers, cosmeticians, taxi drivers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, landscapers, computer techies, gunsmiths, custom harvesters, snow plowers, lawn mowers, babysitters, and as many as 140 more. Sales tax on services legislation typically grants numerous exemptions to minimize the political backlash. If the tax exempts business-to-business (pre-retail) purchases, to avoid a pyramiding effect from successive transactions, forty percent of the revenues disappear. Exempting health care services reduces the base even further. The compliance problem usually requires exempting the smallest of small businesses - lawn mowers and babysitters. With every exemption, another chunk of expected revenue goes poof. The remaining victims get more and more angry at being targeted, often in the face of nontaxed competition from just across the state line. In 1986 the Florida legislature adopted a sweeping serv-

ices tax, with initial exemptions scheduled to fade out in a few years. The winning candidate for Governor that fall, Republican Bob Martinez, railed against the coming tax increase, and was handily elected. Then, faced with uncomfortable spending decisions, he changed his mind. The pro-tax legislative coalition fractured as taxpayers grasped what would and did happen to them on July 1. The state's newspapers raged against the new tax on advertising services, and hammered on the governor's betrayal of his campaign promises to the voters. His popularity dipped below 30 percent. In a desperate effort to repair the damage, the 1987 legislature spent four bitter weeks in three special sessions, running into December. Martinez vetoed a referendum bill. Finally the legislature repealed the tax. In 1990 the voters tossed Martinez out of office by a 400,000-vote margin (5143 percent). Lest this be seen as an anomaly, consider Maine. In 2009 its Democratic legislature used the bait of somewhat illusory lower income tax rates to introduce a sales tax on services, coupled with an increased rooms and meals tax and a reduced mortgage interest deduction. Last June, by initiative, the voters rejected the law 61-39%. In November they installed a Republican governor and new Republican majorities in both legislative chambers. Ever since his first appearance in the legislature, Peter Shumlin has been a staunch opponent of the sales tax. In 1991 he worked hard to derail a sales tax increase from 4 to 5 percent, offering an amendment to extract the foregone revenues from "the rich" through a four-tiered income tax with a horrendous top rate of 42 percent of Federal tax liability. In a 1993 special session Shumlin voted against Gov. Dean's measure to restore the sales tax rate to 5 percent after it had sunsetted to 4%. As Senate President In 1997 he blocked a House-passed measure to raise the rate from 5 to 6 percent. If, in his debut as governor, he suddenly decided that the sales tax on services was a great idea for reducing the $112 million general fund deficit, Peter Shumlin ought to bear in mind the fate of Gov. Martinez and lots of Democratic legislators in Maine. It wasn't pretty. John McClaughry is vice president of the Ethan Allen Institute (

It’s Christmas time in Woodchuck Berry his ull be short. It’s Christmas Eve for cripes sake and there’s no need to set - there’s way too much excitement around about. The guy who works at my lunch place told me he has two families to celebrate with this year since he’s got a serious gal friend. The galfriend’s mom is visiting and they’ll all be yuling a plenty later on tonight. Then he’ll hook with his side of the family. He’s filled with Joy, you can see it, and seeing it, fills you with Joy. I forgot my hat at the lunch place. It’s a Moriarty hat, a 1960’s invention from the late Annabelle Moriarty, of Stowe, Vermont. Moriarty hats have three peaks. Mine is a red Christmas themed one and is quite festive. I called the owner of the lunch place and asked her to put it aside for me to pick up after Christmas. Told her she could wear it tonight and Christmas day if she’d like. She giggled with glee and wished me a happy holiday. She’s the guy in the first paragraph’s girlfriend. Lucky guy. Lucky gal. Everyone I came across in the gym today seemed extra pumped. My friends Carol and Jim who don’t even have a Christmas tree even seemed to be warmed by the Christmas Eve effect. Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday greetings were being flung like the last guy in the line of a skating rink (pond) game of crack the whip. The gym community is a strong one to behold. The always-merry hardware store gang seemed yet a notch more merry while pointing me toward the Lysol – “down the stairs, sharp right, upper shelf.” The storeowner misses, while giving me tips about when and how I should approach drinking the pre-colonoscopy stew for my soon-to-come colonoscopy, was pretty as a choir girl in a Christmas card, all wintry sweatered up and bushy tailed. I bought the Goo-Gone, the final present on my list (my mother asked for it), and left the store to a resounding

chorus of season’s greetings. There is nearly a foot of snow here this year, and the forecast calls for frosty temperatures throughout the holiday, so the enveloping white-scape that is our town (county, state) ain’t changing to brown anytime soon. A green Christmas works fine, but a white Christmas is simply the cat’s pajamas … I’ll say. The prettiest girl in the world works at a cookie place I stopped at this noon, and while ringing up my oatmeal raisin cookie she told me she’s coming to Christmas Eve service tonight and wondered if I’d be there. “Yes,” I nodded before putting her wise to the big secret on the street that is “they’re using a real donkey at the Eve service this year.” She was impressed and added that when she was young she played the donkey in the Nativity play. I told her I bet she was tons better then the real thing, and that I shutter to think of what all this utter realism in the church presentations might bring come Easter. I got a way with words. Words? Words hardly matter on Christmas Eve as most folks go along more merry than mice in a well stocked cheese cave. I love Christmas Eve so much I needed to quell tears three times today, and it’s not even two-o’clock.

about the fact that 70 percent of our healthcare costs are attributable to preventable causes. Not only are more than one-fourth the number of potential military recruits too fat to join the military, but now a report released December 21 says nearly one in four of the students who try to join the U.S. Army fail its entrance exam. Many have found it easier to blame teachers and schools for such academic results or McDonald’s and soda for childhood obesity. A commitment to reality is long overdue and we must make personal responsibility germane to both of these discussions. I could dazzle you with financial facts that are all big and all bad. I could stress the challenges of demographics, unfunded liabilities and our inability to create private sector jobs in Vermont since 1997. We’ve been there, done

that. After you read this, you may crinkle it up to start your woodstove, or you may ask, how do we engage the general population to address the problems we face? How do we get the discussion started on issues of citizen participation in government and parent participation in our schools as a first step toward addressing the question “where do we go from here?” We need participation, and the time of good intentions and “hoping for volunteers” is over. It’s time to get in the game, or watch our country, as we’ve known it, vanish.

Black River Academy Museum (BRAM) received a very special Christmas present from an anonymous donor. In an unexpected, but very pleasant, move, the unnamed donor has offered to match up to $50,000 in donations for the purpose of allowing the museum to install an elevator cab and related electrical needs in the recently completed elevator wing of the museum building. According to BRAM's Capital Drive Chairperson, Anita Alic, "This will provide the museum with the necessary funds to install the elevator and make all floors of the historic museum collections available to everyone". She noted that the matching funds offer was for the period from Jan. 1 through June 30, 2011. The museum's capital drive committee is already planning events to support the challenge grant. Alic noted that the elevator would enable the museum to support additional use by local school students as well as attract tourist groups. Pictured above are, from left to right, Ralph Pace and Anita Alic, as they review the challenge grant.

RUTLAND — The Paramount Theatre in Rutland, Vermont announced today the addition of the capability for supporters of the organization to make secure online donations at the theatre’s website, Until now, all donations had to be mailed via post or made in person. “In the same manner that we have made securing your tickets online, we are making your annual membership contributions, fast, convenient and hassle-free.” commented, Bruce Bouchard, executive director. The new online technology (featured prominently on the theatre’s website homepage under the language “Make Online Donation Today By Becoming A Member”) allows supporters to either renew their existing membership or become a new member of the organization by paying their dues by way of credit card. The supporter will receive a notice in the mail acknowledging their donation – a document required for tax purposes. “Ticket sales reflect only a small portion of the funds necessary to operate a historic performing arts center like The Paramount.” commented, Eric Mallette, programming director. “By becoming a member, a supporter is able to make a direct impact on the organization – an impact that will help secure this institution’s well being.”

Suffering from cabin fever?

Vermont’s Bald Eagle Recovery Plan is Adopted

LUDLOW — Do you suffer from "cabin fever" during the long winter? Come to the Fletcher Memorial Library in Ludlow on Main Street and enjoy our brown bag lunch book and movie series. On the second Tuesday of each month, Jan. 11, Feb. 8 and March 8, the Friends of the Library will have a book discussion and on the fourth Tuesday, Jan. 25, Feb. 22 and March 22 we will watch the movie. The January book selection will be "The Day of the Pelican" by Katherine Paterson, a Vermont Reads Selection. The story follows the Lleshis family, Albanian Kosovars, who get caught up in the warfare with Serbia in the 1990's and their resettlement and experiences in Vermont. February's selection is "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri, a widely acclaimed and international bestseller. It is the debut novel by the Pulitzer Prize author. It relates the story of a multigenerational Hindu family from Bengal, India who move to a new life in Boston. It explores the complexities of the immigrant experience and foreigness and the clash of cultures as the Garguli family is torn between theh pull of family traditions and the new American way of life. In March, we will discuss "Small Island" by Andrea Levy. "Small Island" is a moving powerful novel about two couples , one couple from the island of Jamaica and the other from England. Both have to deal with racism and prejudice in England during and after World War II. The story is told with authenticity and humor. Please join us for friendly lunches at noon during January, February and March. Bring your lunch and we will provide dessert and beverage. The books are available at the Library. Please use the rear entrance where there is a ramp and elevator.

WATERBURY — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has adopted a Vermont Bald Eagle Recovery Plan that will guide the restoration and management of bald eagles in the state in future years. “Bald eagles are native to Vermont but were absent from the state as a breeding species for almost 70 years,” said Vermont Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Wayne Laroche. “No eagles were nesting in the state until 2008, when a pair of eagles successfully raised one of their young at a nest in Concord, Vermont.” “I want to thank the many organizations and public volunteers who partnered with us in a three-year bald eagle recovery effort at the Fish and Wildlife Department’s Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison from 2004 to 2006. A total of 29 captive young bald eagles were released to boost the recovery of bald eagles in Vermont.” Partners cooperating with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department in this recovery effort included the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, New Hampshire Audubon, Audubon Vermont, Fairbanks Museum, Outreach for Earth Stewardship, New York DEC, Central Vermont Public Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and public volunteers, including an-

glers who donated fish to feed the young eagles. “We are encouraged by the nesting success eagles had in 2010,” said Vermont Fish and Wildlife’s Migratory Bird Biologist John Buck. “Nine bald eagle pairs nesting in Vermont produced five eagle fledglings.” DDT and other environmental contaminants are largely to blame for the eagle’s earlier disappearance from Vermont as well as the continental U.S. Bald eagles have made such a good comeback in most of the United States they have been removed from the federal endangered species list. Their recovery in Vermont has been slower than in many states and therefore the bird remains on the State’s endangered species list. Vermont’s eagle recovery plan lays out management actions aimed at monitoring and protecting nesting sites to help eagles produce young on a consistent basis. The most important goal is to remove the bald eagle from Vermont’s endangered species list. The plan is on Vermont Fish and Wildlife’s website ( In the Department Library, click on Reports and Documents – Nongame and Natural Heritage – Recovery Plans.

Fire Academy From page 1 College in Boston. The Vermont Fire Academy recently constructed a new training facility which included the installation of a series of permanent Gomez sculptures titled, Tools of Command. The artist’s inspiration was drawn from the men themselves, as Gomez spent over a year learning about the firefighter’s tools and how they work together. The Fire Academy is the 28th building in the state which has been commissioned by the Vermont Arts Council, with Gomez receiving a $36,000 grant from the organization to complete the sculpture projects. The used a water-aluminum technique to create five sculptures which depict the tools used by firefighters in their work. For more information on the Vermont Fire Academy project or other public art projects, visit

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s efforts to restore nesting bald eagles to the state are producing promising results. Nine bald eagle pairs nesting in Vermont produced five fledglings in 2010. A recovery plan that will guide the restoration of bald eagles in the state in future years has now been adopted.

Let ‘Er Rip — Okemo Mountain Coaster opens LUDLOW — Timber Ripper, Okemo Mountain Resort’s new mountain coaster attraction, officially opened Thursday, Dec. 23 with an opening ceremony. Timber Ripper is a four-season attraction that offers a scenic and exhilarating ride through the forests and along the contours of the mountain at Okemo’s Jackson Gore. Okemo worked with Alpine Recreation Ventures to install the rollercoaster-like ride manufactured by Wiegand. Firmly connected on maintenance-free stainless steel tubular rails, the Wiegand alpine coaster runs smoothly down the mountain. Sledlike cars are designed to carry two riders in comfort but can be handled easily by one. The drivers, riding in front, are in control of the speed and this gives them a unique hands-on experience, encouraging repeat visits. Tickets to ride Timber Ripper are priced at $13 a ride for drivers and $9 for passengers. Multi-ride packages will be sold in three-, five-, and 10-ride increments. Group

rates will also be available. Drivers must be at least 48” tall to operate the sled and passengers must be more than 36” tall to ride Timber Ripper. Hours of Operation will run from 11a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week. Tickets may be purchased in the Jackson Gore Resort Services Desk area. The ride starts and ends near the bottom of the Coleman Brook Express lift at Okemo’s Jackson Gore base area. Following a 1600-foot climb lasting about five minutes, riders will descend 375 vertical feet along 3100 feet of track that follows the contours of the mountain with added waves, camel backs and banking loops at a speed of up to 25 mph. Timber Ripper will operate year round in most weather conditions. More information about Okemo Mountain Resort may be obtained by calling (802) 228-1600 or by visiting

Get In The Game A View on Sports by Joe Milliken


he Windsor High School boys' basketball team recently got a big win, travelling to Westminster and knocking off the Bellows Falls Terriers, 69-59, at Holland Gym. The win (at press time) put Windsor at 3-1 on the season, while the Terriers fell to 1-3. The Yellow Jackets jumped out early in this one, led by senior center Jacob Page, who hit a 3-pointer on his first shot, then proceeded to take the ball inside to help his team to a seven-point lead halfway through the first quarter, while also grabbing a couple rebounds on the defensive end. Bellows Falls would hang tough early on, however, playing a zone defense which produced a couple early turnovers and lay ups in transition. Junior guard Drew Guild

scored on a fast break lay up to keep the Terriers within a point halfway through the quarter, but from then on, it would be Windsor's Page who would do most of the scoring inside. The six-foot-three Page would score on three consecutive possessions in the paint and after junior guard Kyle Cushing hit a 3-pointer at the end of the quarter, Windsor all of a sudden had a 10-point lead over the Terriers. In the second quarter the Bellows Falls defense once again, kept the game close with three consecutive turnovers and after back-to-back baskets from senior Chris Goldschmidt and freshman guard Kendrick Mills, the Terriers had the lead back down to five and forcing Windsor coach Larry Dougher to call a time out. The two teams would go back and fourth for the remainder of the second quarter, but after four consecutive Windsor hoops to end the half, the Yellow Jackets went into the locker room with a 37-23 lead. Page had 14 points at the half with a half dozen rebounds, while Cushing had 13 points including four, 3-pointers. Goldschmidt had four points for Bellows Falls. Early in the third quarter, Windsor would stretch the lead to as many as 18 points with a solid inside-outside game that the Terrier zone simply could not keep


up with, and Bellows Falls went into the fourth quarter down by 15 points. But to their credit, they continued to work hard, with the freshman Mills jump-starting the offense with not only his shooting, but also distributing the ball and hustling on defense. The Terrier defense produced three more turnovers in four trips and after consecutive 3-pointers from Goldschmidt and Mills halfway through the fourth, the Yellow Jacket lead was back down to 10 points. But again, Windsor would fight off the comeback behind the shooting Page, Cushing and junior Tanner Dana. Bellows Falls would get the lead down to nine points with two minutes left in the game, but that is as close as they would get, as Windsor would come away with a 69-59 win. For the game, Windsor's Jacob Page led all scorers with 25 points, while Kyle Cushing added 21 and Tanner dana pitched in with 14. For Bellows Falls, Kendrick Mills led the way with 15 points, while Chris Goldschmidt and Drew Guild each pitched in with eight points.

RUTLAND — WalkRutland Guided Walk: 10 a.m. Baker Brook Trail in North Chittenden. Meet and park at the church on Holden Rd. (North Chittenden Wesleyan Church - 27 Holden Rd.), near the Pittsford Fish Hatchery. This is a good winter hike because it is mostly flat and wide and off the beaten path of cars. It runs near a beautiful brook for most of the route, and beavers, birds, and other wildlife are plentiful at various

times. Because it's an out-and-back walk, people can adapt the distance to their needs and time constraints. One possible turn-around point could be Apple Brook Farm, which is about 2.9 miles from Holden Rd. Sturdy hiking boots (or snowshoes if we have lots of fresh snow) are recommended.

Tuesday, January 11 LUDLOW — Come to the Fletcher Memorial Library on Main Street and enjoy our brown bag lunch book and movie series. On the second Tuesday of each month, January 11th, February 8th and March 8th, the Friends of the Library will have a book discussion and on the fourth Tuesday, January 25th, February 22nd and March 22nd we will watch the movie. The January book selection will be "The Day of the Pelican" by Katherine Paterson, a Vermont Reads Selection. The story follows the Lleshis family, Albanian Kosovars, who get caught up in the warfare with Serbia in the 1990's and their resettlement and experiences in Vermont. Please join us for friendly lunches at noon during January, February and March. Bring your lunch and we will provide dessert and beverage. The books are available at the Library. Please use the rear entrance where there is a ramp and elevator.
