Proctor’s Vermont Marble Museum receives award By Joe Milliken PROCTOR — The Vermont Marble Museum here recently won the prestigious Omni Intermedia Award for its documentary about the history of marble used for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in Arlington National Cemetery. The international media Omni Intermedia Award is given to outstanding media productions created within the previous three years. The local museum won the Silver Award in the entertainment category for its video creation, “America’s Eternal Flame: The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier,” an 11-minute documentary produced by independent filmmaker Kurt Supancic as part of an exhibit honoring the famous tomb. Last fall, the museum put together the exhibit and created the documentary as part of the presentation. Supancic, who lives in Colorado but is a Proctor- native, is also a freelance writer, video editor and gaffer and has worked in screenwriting, commercial video production, short films and video editing. The documentary script was written by Catherine Miglorie, who is the director of the Vermont Marble Museum and also writes a weekly column for the Rutland Herald dubbed “Marble Minutes.” The film focuses on the history of the marble and transporting it from a marble slab to the tomb by railroad. The marble used from the tomb actually came from a quarry in Colorado, which was owned by the Vermont Marble Co., and was shipped by rail to Proctor for carving. From there, it was shipped to Arlington. “The Vermont Marble Museum is very pleased and proud to have won this award, ...Turn to page 9 to read more on the Marble Museum

By Joe Milliken

KILLINGTON Ñ Aspen East Ski Shop here recently hosted the town premiere of a film about extreme skiing, snowboarding and other mountain sports on nationwide tour. Shown at The Summit Lodge, “The Story” was broadcast as part of Ski Channel’s Film Tour. The showing was partially sponsored by Killington’s municipal Economic Development and Tourism Department. Aspen East is an awardwinning ski shop known for its products and services by ski companies nationwide, has hosted numerous local author book signings including Karen Lorentz and Linda Greenlaw, the captain of the sister ship of the Andrea Gail, which was featured in the book and movie ‘The Perfect Storm,” and Reeve Lindbergh, the youngest daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh. “The Story” is a family-orientated film featuring Lindsey Vonn, Bode Miller, and XGames star Bobby Brown and was shot on location from Mount Everest, Nepal, Chile, Argentina and the Antarctic Peninsula. The movie takes the viewer on a trip down steep, first-descent slopes and visits to first-class ski resorts such as Deer Valley, Jackson Hole and Mammoth Mountain. “The film tells the story of incredible people doing incredible things in incredible places,” said Steve Bellamy in a recent press release. Bellamy is the CEO of Atonal Sports, which owns the Ski Channel. “The reason we made the film is because the stories of these athletes are so good that they just have to be told. Such a large portion of skiers give up everything to do what they do. Even though the action in the film is as gnarly as anything you will ever see, it is the stories of these athletes that really captivate me.” Thrilling highlights of epic skiing, snowboarding and river surfing are exhilarating as the film looks into what drives the athletes who devote their lives to the snowy mountains. It is the first film shot for the Ski Channel’s first national movie tour. A second film was then featured titled “Shane and the McConkeys,” a documentary about the life of Shane McConkey, a skiing pioneer who died during a wingsuit ski base jump in the Italian Dolomites in the shoot in 2009.

LUDLOW — Okemo Mountain Resort recently collected thousands of pounds of food for the Black River Good Neighbor Services (BRGNS) food shelf and Christmas Basket Program. On Sunday, Dec. 19, Okemo Mountain management let everyone who came with three items of non-perishable food, or a children’s toy, ski at a deeply discounted rate. Over a thousand skiers took advantage of Okemo Mountain’s offer. Many Okemo employees and community members who don’t ski donated bags of food as well. “So many families will benefit from this tremendous show of support that it’s almost impossible to express our overwhelming gratitude to Okemo and the generous folks who took part in the day’s donation and activities” said Audrey Bridge, Director of BRGNS’s Food Shelf and Thrift Shop. “The Okemo employees who worked so

An osprey displays its long, powerful legs, large hooked bill and unique cylindrical talons as it flies over the waters of Lake Arrowhead. Ospreys have unique adaptations that help them catch live fish, which make up virtually their entire diet.


to the efforts of Zetterstrom, CVPS and the state, the osprey was removed from Vermont’s endangered species list. CVPS spokesman Steve Costello, a birdlover inspired by Zetterstrom’s fierce defense of ospreys, said her contributions were immeasurable. “Meeri not only loved these birds, she instilled a love for wildlife in hundreds of Vermonters, speaking directly to them through cable-access television and in dozens of school presentations over a period of years,” Costello said. “When I watch ospreys today, I know that Meeri is one of the primary reasons we have that opportunity. They are spectacular birds, and we have Meeri’s grit and tenacity to thank for their return.” Nominations for the CVPS-Zetterstrom Environmental Award will be accepted through March 15, and the winner announced in the spring. The winner will be chosen by a panel of CVPS employees with responsibilities related to land management, resource protection, community relations and education, and environmental compliance. Nominations may be made by the nominee or by any other entity and should demonstrate a commitment of the nominee to benefit Vermont, its land, air, water, wildlife, or the enjoyment of the outdoors by others. This may be through educational efforts, environmental stewardship, resource rehabilitation, protection or preservation or conservation. The award, though it may be presented to a business or larger organization, is intended to support environmental protection and inspire individuals to benefit Vermont’s environment. Vermonters of any age may be nominated. For a nomination application and more information, visit


RUTLAND — Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) is seeking nominations for the second annual CVPS-Zetterstrom award, which is presented annually to one person, business, group or non-profit to honor a significant contribution to Vermont’s environment. It will be accompanied by a $2,500 donation to the winner ’s environmental cause. The award is named for Meeri Zetterstrom, who inspired the company and countless Vermonters through her dogged efforts to protect and restore Vermont’s osprey population. “Meeri Zetterstrom was a unique Vermonter, filled with extraordinary creativity and determination in her efforts to help ospreys recover from near-extinction in Vermont,” CVPS President Bob Young said. “Thanks in large part to her leadership and tenacity, ospreys are now common in Vermont. To honor Meeri’s legacy, those traits are among the qualities we will look for in nominees for the award.” Zetterstrom played a central role in the restoration of ospreys at Lake Arrowhead, a CVPS hydro facility that straddles the border of Milton and Georgia, Vt., and Vermont in general. With a bird’s-eye view of the lake, Zetterstrom was among the first to notice when ospreys returned to fish Arrowhead’s waters after their near extinction, and she was determined to help them. Zetterstrom’s foresight prompted CVPS and the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife to wage an extensive campaign, starting in 1988, to assist the ospreys. Artificial nesting platforms, buffer zones and educational materials were created to provide the birds a fighting chance. It paid off in 1998, when the first osprey chick in memory hatched and fledged at Lake Arrowhead. In 2005, due in large part

it needed more time to examine the proposal. Even with the increase, which will take effect with bills mailed this month, CVPS’s rates will remain among the lowest of the major utilities in New England. Under the base rate change, a residential customer using 500 kilowatthours per month would experience a $5.77 increase, from $78.11 to $83.88. By comparison, the same customer would pay as much as $121.80 elsewhere in New England, according to the Edison Electric Institute. Since 1999, CVPS rates have risen at a fraction of the rate of inflation in the energy sector, with a handful of increases and decreases, including a 1.15

percent decrease in July. Overall, rates in 2011 are expected to be 20.8 percent higher than in 1999. Based on the latest federal data available, the Consumer Price Index for Energy has increased 81 percent. Other Vermont utilities have received rate increases ranging from 3.11 percent to as much as 30.76 percent in the past eight months. Unless altered by the board, the new rates will serve as the base rates for 2011 under CVPS’s amended alternative regulation framework. Under the plan, CVPS’s rates are adjusted up or down every quarter to account for specified changes in power costs, and annually for specified changes in other costs and earnings.

How to limit stranger danger


arents I don't know have recently been coming up to me in public places asking for help teaching their children about talking to strangers — which is ironic since I am a stranger to them as well. That being said, let me see if I can approach the topic of strangers and make dealing with them a little less fearful for everyone. Unfortunately, there are both nice strangers and dangerous strangers and telling the difference is not easy for a child. Ideally you don't want your child talking to any stranger. But there may be a time when your child gets accidentally lost in a public place or experiences an accident while out with friends and needs to seek help from someone they do not know. So, rather than focus on trying to teach our children not to talk to strangers, it is better to teach them to be wary of anyone who acts strangely or makes them feel uneasy whether they know them or not. If they are approached by someone they don’t know, teach them to stay alert keep that person at arm’s length, back away and try not to talk to him or her. And of course they should never go for a ride with a stranger that approaches them. If your child gets lost and must talk to a stranger to get help, have them approach a police officer, security guard or store employee first. If none are around, tell them to seek out a woman rather than a man, or people with children since these types of people are almost never apt to sexually or physically abuse a child. School age children are not immune either. They should stay in groups when not under adult supervision and should pick out safe spots they can run to if they’re approached by someone they don’t know or trust. The house of a friend or a nearby school are two good examples. Remind your child that almost always a person who could potentially abuse them physically or sexually is not a stranger at all, so perhaps the most important rule is to tell your child to trust their own instincts. If someone makes them feel uncomfortable, or if they feel something is just not right, they need to walk away immediately even if they cannot explain why. If you think your child may have been sexually abused, please call 211 or the Department of Children and Family Services at (800) 649-5285 if you live in Vermont. New York residents can call the New York State Central Register for Child Abuse and Maltreatment at (800) 635-1522. Hopefully you’ll find tips like this anything but strange when it comes to helping your child know better what to do about strangers, and people they may know but not feel comfortable being around..

WEDNESDAY January 5, 2011

The Matthew Effect in Sudbury Four years before the “new” Sudbury Elementary School was built in 1980 (it was new only in the sense that the last of the really old one-room schools had been closed in the late ‘60’s), the journal of the Australian Educational Research group used the term “the Matthew Effect” to describe how students who do well in the early grades do even better academically and personally later on, while those who don’t, for whatever reasons of parental influence, peer pressure, or personal choice, subsequently do progressively worse. Now that the highest-spending typically urban districts are those with the worst achievement results, it’s hard to blame inadequate spending, and now that alternative schools produce the best achievement results with the least-formally-accredited teachers, it’s hard to blame the teachers, but not impossible: both higher spending and stiffer teacher certification are still pushed as establishment-recommended remedies, real-world experience notwithstanding. The Matthew Effect still isn’t a widely used term, but it should be; it accurately describes how, to paraphrase the First-Century Gospel scribe, to those who have mastery of the basics early on, a lot more will come easily, while to those who have little or none, they’ll fall further behind, and their future prospects aren’t good. The public-education establishment embraces some of the Matthew Effect: it’s the underlying argument in favor of Head Start, for example (which has failed so indefensibly that the latest pro-HS argument is that it hires lots of adults who spend their earnings swiftly and stimulate the economy) and in disfavor of small elementary schools, which supposedly can’t produce early achievement results equal to the better-resourced large elementaries, even though the latter are typically organized to emulate the former by means of sub-division into “houses” and, of course, ever-smaller classes. It rejects the other half of the Matthew Effect through efforts to neutralize it, which explains why the most teacher effort is supposed to go to the poorer (both definitions applicable) students and the least to the better ones. Nothing new about that. When I was in grade school long before the Matthew Effect was even dreamed up, we who got the lesson first time around were sent to the fixed seats in the rear of the room to read any book we had brought, while the teacher spent all her time with the third of the class which hadn’t gotten it. She wasn’t allowed to expand on the lesson with us. Indeed, in its current format, the federally-designed No Child Left Behind legislation is specifically structured to punish teachers and districts with poor students but not to reward or even recognize those who (and which) produce good ones. The Feds are now arguing over which factor — maternal literacy or neighborhood socio-economic status (hey, guys, there’s a direct correlation) — is most conducive to early grade-level achievement, but the more literate parents already know the answer, which is why they’ve historically made neighborhood SES a major part of their domestic rental or purchase geographic decisions, which in turn explains why a lot of former Bostonians are now in Brookline and a lot of former Manhattanites are now in Manhasset, and, indeed, why a lot of former New Jersey-ites are now in Vermont, and why a lot of urbanite and suburbanite families have fled to more rural surroundings and now, frequently, form the basis of a consumer demand for alter-

native education not bound by the various constraints which public education has acquired, particularly in recent decades. It’s why nonpublic enrollment in Vermont has grown remarkably, albeit from a tiny statistical base, in those same recent decades. New private schools have been established – think Aurora, Bridge, or Gailer in Middlebury—while a public one has gone private –think Mountain in Winhall—and a few public ones have been dissuaded from privatization by their public-ed superintendents –think Whiting and Cabot. Presently Addison will face the same decision. And Sudbury, which is under SED pressure to close, could well choose to privatize. As previous entrants into private-sector K-12 have shown, there’s a substantial and growing niche-market demand by literate parents for alternative education venues for their offspring, for schools which don’t employ policies intended at cancelling out the Matthew Effect, schools which, instead of sidelining students who’ve grasped the lesson, devote at least as much effort to expanding on it for them as to trying yet again with those who haven’t grasped it, to pursuing an achievement result, for some, better than bare “proficiency” (public schools score at about 30 percent on bringing their students to proficiency). With that quite-different-from-public-ed objective, a privatized Sudbury School would, I’d guess, fairly rapidly fill the 40 seats now empty under public-ed management. It would operate efficiently at its planned 60-pupil capacity with every seat generating both revenue and education, and performing both functions by free-choice, no-coercion contract with those involved — those who pay for it and those who learn from it. Ideally, I’d add, Sudbury taxpayer/parents who involuntarily support the present school should somehow get a credit for tuition at the new one; but, in the modern Vermont, such a political target is probably a bridge too far. As the Whiting exploration more than a decade ago showed, official anti-privatization pressure can be intense, and resistance to any form of tax credits or vouchers for alternative venues (“which would cruelly starve public education of sorely-needed funds”) has typically been dominant not in just one little State, but in all 50. Even the District of Columbia wouldn’t allow a tiny charter alternative to continue, a display of the political-ideology component of public-education more instructive than any number of lectures about Massachusetts free-public-ed advocate Horace Mann and his one-classroom-per-grade design doctrine; or Vermont educational-theory icon John Dewey, who acquired his enthusiasm for less-individual and morecollective education from his 1928 visit to the Soviet Union. Longtime Addison County resident Martin Harris now keeps his eye on Vermont from Tennessee.

Mentoring... They win, you win


anuary is National Mentoring Month. So hear this. I mentored a fella starting when he was 12, through his senior year. His school had a mentoring program that called for students to hang out and shadow someone in the workplace and learn about their job. When the program ended, Nick and I kept meeting once a week, often more, and like I mentioned, we kept hanging out until he graduated and left town for college. We’re still in touch. I can tell you, I’m an actor, and Nick hung with me on sets, at radio and television studios, in deal negotiating meetings, and at my live stage shows. He ended up being House Manager for my stage shows quite a few times. Nick is presently in New York City having a good deal of success striking out as a writer and filmmaker. Seems like Nick and my time hanging might have at the least pointed him somewhere in the direction toward what he might end up being interested in and involved with through the rest of his life. Nick came from a solid family with parents full of strong ideals and attitudes, so time with him wasn’t spent presenting the simple fundamentals of life; time with Nick

was spent simply being friends. If I may wholeheartedly choose to use a cliché – I learned more from Nick then Nick learned from me … I’d bet the farm on that. When folks volunteer they often end up saying something like, “It makes me feel good about myself, like I’ve contributed something.” I’m not into that. I did not offer time mentoring so I could feel good about myself. I offered my time mentoring because … well, connection is key. Turns out too that I’ve had some of the best times of my life mentoring. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Chamber offering: A “Taste for every Season” at Okemo The Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce is offering a 2011 “A Taste of Every Season” dining calendar. Twelve restaurants within the Okemo Valley have showcased their signature recipe, along with a picture of their dish. Among the chefs who participated are Okemo Mountain Resort Executive Chef Michael Breen who was recently designated Certified Executive Chef by The American Culinary Federation. The Executive Chef certification identifies those chefs who have demonstrated a level of culinary competence and expertise through their education, work experience, culinary knowledge and skills consistent with the executive chef level. The ACF Executive Chef certification is the fourth level of official recognition in the organization’s Cooking Professional category. It is eclipsed only by the elite Master Chef designation. Another Chef who participated is from the Inn at Weathersfield, Chef Jason Tostrup, who began his culinary career in Aspen at The Renaissance in 1996. He worked his way up the kitchen ladder, starting as a pastry assistant, moving to roundsman, then sous-chef. In 1999 Jason was promoted to Executive Chef. During his tenure at The Renaissance, Jason was instrumental in establishing the restaurant’s reputation for world class, award winning cuisine recognized for its’ excellence by The James Beard Foundation. In 2002, Jason moved to Napa Valley to work as Sous Chef at Thomas Keller ’s bistro outpost, Bouchon. While in Napa, Jason had the opportunity to enjoy life in the California wine country and explore its commitment to farming, agriculture and sustainability. In his constant quest for fresh food and local products, Jason made the decision to come to Vermont where local products are a way of life. "I wanted to be closer to the seasons, the products and the farmers. That connection is so important to me." Since moving to Vermont and taking charge of the Inn at Weathersfield dining operations, he has developed strong alliances with area growers and producers. These strong relationships and his commitment to local producers have made Jason and the Inn at Weathersfield a leader in the Farm to Table movement in Vermont. Jason has been awarded the Sante Culinary Arts Award for 'Sustainable Cuisine New England', been invited to The James Beard House in NYC to showcase his signature 'Verterra' cuisine, and is featured in the PBS series "Endless Feasts" - a documentary about local farms. Most recently the restaurant at The Inn has been named 'The best restaurant in Vermont' by Fodors Travel guides, and is among Bon Apetite Magazines "Hot 10 Culinary Inns in America". Through his career, Jason had the unique opportunity to spend time working in some of NY’s finest kitchens includ-

ing an apprenticeship at Jean George at Trump International, and work at Daniel, Vong, JoJo and Aquavit. Jason's many culinary accomplishments include participation in three James Beard dinners and as a featured host chef invited to celebrate Julia Childs 90th birthday. Another participating restaurant comes from the Echo Lake Inn. In 1984 Chef Kevin Barnes graduated from Johnson and Wales Culinary school with honors and then worked for 2 prestigious hotel chains before finding his true vocation - cheffing at a country inn. After graduation, Kevin worked as a sous chef at one of Vermont's most luxurious country inns and then as executive chef for two other historic inns before taking the position as executive chef for the Echo Lake Inn in early 1989. During these past twenty one years, Kevin's culinary achievements have been featured in numerous magazines including Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Vermont Magazine, Okemo Magazine and published in many travel books and newspapers. His recipes can be found in country inn cookbooks as well. Once you have dined at the Echo lake Inn you will understand why his food is featured so often. One of Kevin's recipes was used as part of a "Taste of Vermont" campaign to promote the many flavors of Vermont. Kevin utilizes many products from local farms on his menu and is a firm believer in “farm to table” practices. The Fullerton Inn in Chester is proud of their Head Chef, James Beliveau. James started his career in Massachusetts, helping his mother in the kitchen preparing the family dinner. He is inspired by the memory of is mother saying, “You have a real knack for cooking.” After that he was a constant fixture in the kitchen. As a teenager James worked summers in a Manchester, Vermont restaurant. With the patience, respect and guidance from the owner, James developed his desire to become a chef. James culinary education continued at Paul Smiths College in the Adirondacks where he received his culinary degree. This led to his externship at Beachwood Hotel in Worchester, Massachusetts. With a passion for downhill skiing, James was lured to Colorado where he accepted a position in a kitchen in Steamboat Springs. James remembers his time with this chef as a very momentous step on his road to culinary achievement. The chef there helped him explore the use of fresh, local foods and truly develop his talents for cooking. He advised James that “if you have a passion for food, the customer will be able to taste it in everything you make.” James took this to heart and makes it a driving principle in all of his pursuits. Chef James returned to New England and his family and worked in several well-known establishments in the southern Vermont region. In 2006 he joined the Fullerton Inn staff as sous chef and has brought his skills to the operation of the

kitchen and the presentation of the meals. He was responsible for the creation and preparation of the lunch menu. He was also responsible for designing specials for Monday nights and occasionally for other evening meals. He has always enjoyed his time at the Fullerton Inn and he is comfortable with the owners, Bret & Nancy Rugg, the wait staff and his kitchen staff. He states that “It is like a family here. Everyone is very friendly and pleasant to work with." Chef James feels great support for his culinary endeavors from the owners and staff. He would like to especially acknowledge the incredible support of his wife, Heather. Those are just a few of the Top Chef ’s who participated in our 2011 “A Taste of Every Season” dining calendar. These will make excellent holiday gifts and a portion of the sales will go for a scholarship at the River Valley Technical School to help a student going into the culinary field.

WalkRutland launches 2011 Walking Challenge Delivery Always Available

100 Miles in 100 Days begins Jan. 17 RUTLAND — WalkRutland, a program of the Rutland Area Physical Activity Coalition (RAPAC), is launching its latest walking challenge. The 2nd annual 100 Miles in 100 Days challenge is designed to encourage individuals to get out and walk 1 mile each day for 100 days. The program is free and open to all adults who live or work in Rutland County. This walking challenge is an easy way to keep moving and lose a few pounds — or at least maintain your weight — during these cold winter months. In 2010, about 450 people participated. According to the walking logs and survey information, a total of 44,557 miles were walked during the 100 days, and each of the finishers lost an average of 4 pounds. WalkRutland promotes walking by offering monthly guided walks and periodic walking challenges, as well as incentives to participants. “Walking is as close as you can get to a magic pill,” said Jen Coleman, WalkRutland coordinator. “It strengthens your heart and bones; can help lower your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar; helps control your weight; helps to prevent memory loss; relieves stress and gives you energy. All that and there’s no co-pay. “Walking is a great exercise for busy people because you can accommodate it to your schedule. You can squeeze it in before or after work, during your lunch, or you can walk in 5- or 10-minute chunks throughout your day. Furthermore, you don’t need to wear special clothes, and you don’t have to shower when you’re finished.” The challenge, which begins Jan. 17 and ends April 26, encourages participants to walk 1 mile a day for 100 days. The mileage can be measured by distance, pedometer steps (2,000 steps = 1 mile), or time (approximately 20 minutes = 1 mile). Guidelines in the packet clarify that you must go for

an actual walk — strapping on a pedometer and counting your steps throughout your normal daily routine isn’t in the spirit of this walking challenge. Also, miles must be walked — running doesn’t count because this is a walking challenge. Walking indoors (a list of indoor walking sites is in the packet) or on a treadmill is acceptable. Even though people are encouraged to walk a mile a day, as long as they complete 100 miles in 100 days, they can fulfill the challenge. This allows people to have the flexibility to double up their mileage if their schedules won’t permit them to walk every day. Also, the challenge does not limit people to 100 miles in 100 days. “Several participants from last year are setting a goal of 200 or 300 miles in 100 days,” Coleman said. “One hundred miles is only the starting point.” If people miss the initial start date of Jan. 17, they can still participate and qualify for completion as long as they walk 100 miles by April 26. It’s easy to participate. Each individual must complete and mail in a registration form and keep a log — walking logs are provided in the registration packet — of his or her mileage. Participants who mail in their qualifying walking logs by April 30 will be entered in a drawing for prizes. These prizes will be distributed on Saturday, May 14, at Rutland’s Depot Park in conjunction with the Farmers Market. Some of last year ’s prizes included massages, kayak rentals, grocery gift cards, and fitness club memberships. This year, 100 Miles in 100 Days registration packets can be downloaded from or picked up at these Rutland County libraries: Brandon, Castleton, Clarendon, Fair Haven, Killington, Pawlet, Pittsford, Poultney, Proctor, Rutland, Wallingford and West Rutland. For more information on the challenge, visit or call Jen Coleman at (802) 3423479.

WATERBURY – The Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation opened the lottery for personal roadside firewood lots on Jan. 3. The two-week registration for 135 “cutyour-own” lots ends Jan. 14. Each roadside lot costs $30 and yields about three cords of wood for the 2011-12 home heating season. “Demand for roadside firewood always exceeds supply,” said Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Sarah Clark. “Roadside lots must consist of trees that can be cut close to drivable roads. Harvesting your firewood is a good way for families to fulfill some of their home energy needs and enjoy physical activity on their state lands.” This year, roadside lots are available in southern Vermont in the towns of Cavendish, Reading and Shrewsbury. People may register online at or by calling (802) 241-3678. The department will accept one signup per household. The department will notify winners of the roadside lots in early March. All participants are strongly encouraged to learn chain saw safety skills to use this equipment on firewood lots. Some lots may require four-wheel drive vehicles to access. Mechanized “skidding” of wood to the roadside is not allowed. For more general information and chain saw safety tips, visit

Black River Good Neighbor BUY IT! Services commissioned by SELL IT! Santa to spread holiday cheer FIND IT! LUDLOW — Once again, Santa asked Black River Good Neighbor Services (BRGNS) to give him an assist in making sure that every neighbor in need had a happy holiday. So, on the first day of winter, volunteers delivered Christmas food baskets and bags loaded with gifts for children and seniors. With great support from other BRGNS board members and an army of volunteers, Ray Lavanway headed the distribution efforts. “Volunteers from our local community came to Fletcher Farm at 10-minute intervals from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.,” Lavanway said. “Volunteers loaded their vehicle with deliveries for three to four families and then drove off to the assigned addresses.” The towns served were Cavendish, Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Proctorsville and Plymouth. “The group of volunteers who worked with me getting the boxes and bags lined up for pickup was one of the best I’ve ever worked with. In fact, we completed the task in record time,” Lavanway said. By the end of the day, 140 families, consisting of 200 adults and 198 children, had received all the makings necessary for a Merry Christmas. “Over the last seven Christmases, BRGNS has served 1,965 people who otherwise would not have had a Christmas dinner, or gifts,” said Jim Fuller, outgoing president of the board. “It would have been impossible to meet this demand without the support of this incredibly generous community.” Wednesday night, Dec. 15, saw many individuals and families visit Fletcher Farm to help pack the boxes. These Christmas “elves” braved the cold to make a positive impact on people who, in most cases, they don’t even know. BRGNS board members thanked the volunteers and the many organizations that contributed to help make the food baskets and gift bags possible: Sons of the American Legion, Cumberland Farms of Ludlow, Black River Produce of Springfield, LaValleys of Ludlow, Shaw’s of Ludlow, Fletcher Foundation, the Fletcher Farm School, and the Vermont Society of Artists and Craftsman, which enables this program to happen by donating the use of their building for an entire month. Strong support also came from the Annunciation Church, United Church, Ludlow Rotary Club, Ludlow Elementary School, Black River High School, Black River Honor Society, Okemo Mountain Ambassadors, Okemo Mountain School, Diane and Tim Mueller, Holy Name of Mary Altar Society, the Methodist Church of Proctorsville, Ludlow Garden Club, Ludlow Swing Dance Club, Singleton’s Store, Wine & Cheese Depot, Crown Point Board of Realtors, Vermont Properties, Okemo Valley Women’s Club, Women’s Society for Christian Service, Teachers of Ludlow Elementary School, Plymouth Memory Tree, Strong Living Program and Friends of Fletcher Memorial Library, Ludlow Garden Club, Ecumenical Church of Ludlow, Rotary Club, Chapter 14, Tyson Church, Tyson Ladies Aid, Windsor County Youth Services and the Ludlow Snowmobile Club. BRGNS officials thanked everyone in the community who donated gifts, toys, monies and their time to support our holiday gift program. With their help, BRGNS was able to present more than 230 gifts.

Curling club announces leagues RUTLAND — Can you hear the “roar”? It is the sound of granite curling stones sliding on the ice at Giorgetti Arena in Rutland as the Rutland Rocks Curling Club announces the formation of Curling Leagues on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. The Rutland Rocks Curling Club began its fourth season of curling at Giorgetti Arena in November with 27 members and has almost doubled in size over the past two months. “We are thrilled with the growth of our membership,” said Club organizer Nancy Murphy. “With two leagues forming, it demonstrates a real commitment to the sport and bodes well for the future of curling in Rutland and for our Club.” It is this enthusiasm and commitment that has also led the Rutland Rocks Curling Club to take the exciting step of purchasing three sets of curling stones — the first of the five Vermont curling clubs to do so. The 48 granite curling stones, originally manufactured in Scotland, are coming from

the Green Bay Curling Club in Wisconsin and should be in play in Rutland in early January. “This is a big step for a curling club of our size,” said Club President Dianne Lyver. “Owning our own stones means that the Rutland Rocks Curling Club is committed to being a part of the winter sports scene in Rutland for years to come.” The Club curls on Sunday and Wednesday evenings through February and welcomes observers to visit and see how members strategize the game and deliver the stones. A free Open House will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9 at Giorgetti Arena (2 Oak St., Rutland). In addition to learning about the sport, participants will be able to get on the ice to give it a try. The Rutland Rocks Curling Club also offers Learn to Curl Clinics throughout the season. Details on the Club and the season may be found online at


Volunteer movers needed at BRGNS LUDLOW — Black River Good Neighbor Services (BRGNS) will be closed all day on Saturday, Jan. 8 in order to move to its new location at the Ludlow Armory Community Complex building 37B on Main Street in Ludlow. The new Thrift Shop and Food Shelf will open on Monday, Jan. 10. Volunteers are needed to help with every aspect of the move: boxing, carrying, sorting, driving and unpacking. Those people who are available, for a few hours or all day, and are interested in helping should contact Audrey Bridge at (802) 228-3663 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Lunch will be served for all of the volunteers, and BRGNS board members are counting on volunteers to respond from all of the communities the organization serves: Cavendish, Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Proctorsville and Plymouth.

CVPS increases Shareheat donation to $120,000, appeals for donors RUTLAND — Citing a shortage of donations and a critical need, Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) recently donated $20,000 in heating aid to community action agencies across Vermont and appealed to customers who can to donate to the CVPS Shareheat campaign. The $20,000 grant is in addition to $100,000 from CVPS shareholders the company previously put into a pool to match donations from the public. “With the economy still on the rebound, donations to Shareheat are lagging this winter, but the need remains very high,” CVPS President Bob Young said. “We decided to immediately jumpstart the effort by making $4,000 contributions to each of the five community action agencies that participate in Shareheat, and to appeal again to the public. Vermonters are facing heating crises every day, and we want to ensure no one goes cold for lack of funds.” Thanks to the matching pool, contributions from the public are matched dollar for dollar and sent to the community action agency that serves the donor ’s region of the state. The pool began the season with $100,000 from CVPS shareholders, and $45,000 has been added to it by Shareheat Business Partners, which include People’s United Bank, Carris Reels, Passumpsic Savings Bank, Weidman Electrical Technology, and The Vermont Country Store. “Thanks to these businesses and our shareholders, every donation from the public, up to $145,000 in total, will be doubled,” CVPS spokesman Steve Costello said. “A $10 donation will provide $20 in assistance to a neighbor in need. Donations of any size will help.” Businesses that would like to join the Shareheat Business Partnership Program may call Costello at 747-5427 for more information. Anyone needing crisis fuel assistance should contact their local community action agency. CVPS Shareheat is a program of last resort for over 1,000 Vermont families each year. Funds are available to assist people who face heating emergencies, often because they never expected to need assistance, lost a job, or have exhausted all other available assistance. “Some people who have donated to Shareheat in the past are now turning to it for assistance themselves,” Costello said. “That is reducing donations and increasing the demand on the program. We’re asking anyone in a position to do so to make a donation.” Contributions should be made payable to the CVPS Shareheat Fund. Donations may be mailed with a CVPS payment or sent separately to CVPS Shareheat, 77 Grove St., Rutland, VT 05701.

Christmas tree pickup slated for Jan. 8 MIDDLEBURY — A Merry Mulch Christmas tree pickup will be held in the town of Middlebury Saturday, Jan. 8, beginning at 8 a.m. All trees will be recycled at the Addison County transfer station so trees that have any metal on them will not be picked up. If the volunteers don’t see the tree or if the tree is frozen to the ground, it may not be picked up. This is a volunteer project of the Rotary Club of Middlebury with help from Casella Waste Management and Middlebury College students.

Marble Museum From page 1 and especially proud of the fact that a monument of such national significance came from Vermont,” Miglorie said in a recent interview. The opening part of the film documents the transportation of the 56-ton block to Proctor in 1931, while the second part of the film honors the tomb in Arlington and what it represents to America. The Vermont Marble Museum, the Arlington National Cemetery and Syracuse University provided video and images for the film, which Supancic used to create the film around the script recorded by Sharon Green, of Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado. “The film was created in support of our new exhibit about the carving of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which opened in May 2010,” Miglorie said. “Originally planned as a companion piece to be shown on a small screen in the Tomb exhibit room, the film came out so well, and has such a patriotic flavor that we decided to show it daily in our main theater. It was well received by all our visitors to the museum last season, to the point where many of our guests had tears in their eyes after viewing the film.” The Omni Intermedia Awards recognize outstanding media productions that empower and enlighten. Awards are given in the fields of film and video, animation and effects and Web site design. It carries the distinction of being recognized by your peers as an example of excellence. “It truly make us proud to be Americans and Vermonters,” Miglorie said. “To know that our Vermont Marble Co. craftsmen carved a monument that came to have such national significance as the an icon to all out fallen battle heroes.”

Study: Vermont second on painkiller addiction list

BURLINGTON — A new federal study has placed Maine and Vermont atop the national list for treatment rates for painkiller addiction. A report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration says Vermont ranks behind only Maine in terms of admission rates per capita for those seeking help kicking addictions to prescription opiates such as oxycodone and hydrocodone. Oxycodone is known by the brand name OxyContin. Citing figures from the report, the Rutland Herald said treatment for painkiller addictions has increased nationwide, and the highest rates of growth were in the New England states. The study analyzed treatment center admissions between 1998 and 2008.
