Great River Arts' “Voices” Teen Radio Program Receives Grant Story by Joe Milliken - Editor The Great River Arts Institute (GRAI) in Bellows Falls recently received $15,000 in grant funding from the AD Henderson Foundation, to continue its' Voices: Vermont Teen Radio 2010 program. Voices helps under-served youth create a personal narrative through the development of a radio documentary. A few current local schools participating include Bellows Falls Union High School, Green Mountain Union High School, the Compass School, Kindle Farm School and Youth Services. Voices also utilizes valuable local resources such as the Bellows Falls community radio station WOOL.FM and Youth Services, INC., as well as professional writers and producers who live and work throughout the Connecticut River Valley. Visiting writer Kathe Izzo will again be working with local teens ages 15-19, conducting workshops at area high schools, youth groups and at the Great River Arts facility in Bellows Falls. Last year Izzo worked with over 50 area teens with the Voices project. An internationally published poet, Izzo is the founding director of The Shadow Project, a creative thinking workshop she developed which has become highly acclaimed for it's therapeutic benefits and creative inspiration.

"We also welcome participation from any area school or youth group as well," said GRAI Education Director Kristen Fehrenbach in a recent interview. “Any interested parties just need to get in touch with us for more details. Participation in this program is free of cost and during our weekend GRAI intensives we provide snacks and lunch for the kids.” Voices will officially launch on Saturday Feb. 6 with their first introductory writing and radio technology workshop, which is open to all teens ages 15-19. As part of the initiative to encourage teens to write, GRAI is also offering a professional development workshop with Izzo for teachers, youth workers, writers and parents. On Sunday, Feb. 7, GRAI will also offer Like Moths To A Flame: How To Get Kids To Love Writing, a writing boot camp for educators, parents and writers. This is a style class teaching a "nuts and bolts" approach to writing, complete with lesson plans and writing exercises. The cost of this particular workshop is $30., with the proceeds going to support Voices Teen Radio 2010. GRAI is an arts center in Bellows Falls that supports visual and literary artists. For more information about the workshops, Vermont Teen Radio or GRAI, contact Kristen Fehrenbach at 463-3330.

Weathersfield Foodshelf Expresses Its Appreciation Editor, The Outlook: We, at the Weathersfield foodshelf, would like to express appreciation to the many who are making it possible for us to provide food for the many people who are finding it difficult to make ends meet in our current economy. We especially thank the following: GMH Transportation of Ascutney, Green Mountain Produce of North Springfield, and the many local residents, too numerous to list, who donate money, food and garden supplies. We were able to have a generous supply of hand-picked apples due to the gift of Green Mountain Orchard in Putney who allowed us free of charge all the apples we could pick. We also wish to recognize Perkinsville Community Church who provide, free of charge, the large amount of space and utilities required to house the foodshelf. As our entire staff is volunteer, we can claim a cost free operation which serves our community and beyond. We are open on Thursdays 1 to 2 p.m. All are welcome. For government commodity food, income eligibility must be met. We are also open to share cooking skills such as soups, casseroles, etc. We did have an apple pie making event which was fun.

Concerned with Attempt to Sell Weathersfield Reservoir Editor, The Outlook: At the last Springfield select board meeting, two separate articles were voted to be put on the March ballot to sell the Weathersfield reservoir and the surrounding land. In my opinion this is a sad day for Springfield when a former water supply that furnished the whole town during the booming industrial days is put up for sale (for the second time) and was defeated by 620 votes. Also, the dam has been grossly neglected when the people voted to keep the dam in good repair, with money to do so, so as to preserve it. For intelligent people to willfully try to sell a water supply is beyond my comprehension. Water is the most important commodity in the world. Also, to take this action shows an utter disrespect for the people of Springfield wishes. Finally, this reservoir has been found, after nine years of engineering studies, to be our only viable backup water supply. Please keep this knowledge in mind when you go to the polls in March.

Nelligan Photography Fundraiser At MoonDog Cafe

Lady Chiefs Dominate MSJ

Chester Residents To Raise Funds For Haiti Relief Story by Joe Milliken - Editor Photo by Pam Nelligan On Saturday, Feb. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the second floor of the MoonDog Cafe on the Green in Chester, Pam Nelligan, owner of P. J. Nelligan Photography, will be photographing families to raise money for Haiti Relief. “I am using what I know - photography – to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti,” Nelligan stated in a recent interview. “Feeling powerless in the face of such tragedy is probably something we all experience. I knew that if I could offer the folks of Chester a way to contribute, we could all join together and reach out to help families and children who are in desperate need.” The cost of the fundraiser is $25, in which you receive an 8x10 portrait. Domenica and Gary Coger are the owners of the building and have generously donated the space, while the Chester Rotary Club has offered their services to handle the funds for this effort. All the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to “Doctors Without Borders” and “Pure Water Of The World,” a non-profit agency started years ago by a Brattleboro Rotary Club member. “We are not going to set up appointments,” Pam added. “Rather, folks will sign in upon arrival and the portraits will be taken in that order. It might be organized chaos, but most events that include children are anyway. Children are always my favorite subjects!”

The portraits will be available approximately two weeks after the fundraiser. For more information, contact Pam by at

Springfield Hospital’s New Year’s Baby Windsor Couple Celebrates Submitted by Springfield Hospital Springfield Hospital’s 2010 New Year ’s Baby arrived on Wednesday, Jan. 6 at 7:06 a.m. After a long labor, Kingston Indy DiOrio announced his arrival, weighing a healthy 8 pounds, 14 ounces, and measuring 21.5” inches. Kingston is the first-born child to Kristiina and Nicholas DiOrio of Windsor. “I have to admit, the clock seemed to stand still during many of those laboring hours,” said Kristiina. “No celebration would be complete without special thanks to Drs. Anne Stohrer and Will Ellis of The Women’s Health Center in Springfield for their wonderful care throughout our pregnancy and Kingston’s birth. Their guidance and support were very much appreciated, especially through what proved to be a challenging birth. The team at The ChildBirth Center were absolutely wonderful.” Being a father was a big step for Nicholas and he definitely rose to the occasion. “Nicholas was there every step of the way, from participating in the education classes right through the birth — and we have wonderful photos to prove it!” smiles Kristiina. As Kingston sported his new outfit—a gift from his Uncle Dan and Aunt Mara – he rested comfortably in his mother ’s arms, offering occasional smiles, squirms, and stretches. “We can’t believe he’s finally here,” said the proud new parents. A welcome basket of gifts, donated by local businesses and hospital volunteers, was presented to the DiOrio's in celebration of the New Year's Baby. In photo, Springfield’s New Year’s baby Kingston Indy DiOrio and his parents Kristiina and Nicholas DiOrio of Windsor.

One recent Saturday class on how to cook a meatless luncheon, was full with eight students, who watched, help prepare and finally ate a wild mushroom and leek soup, a spinach salad with roasted pears along with the dried cranberry vinaigrette dressing, and a main course of radicchio and fennel slaw and seared

sea scallops with sauce verte and toasted hazelnuts. Reasons for coming to the class varied from a wife and mother wanting to spice up her cooking for the family to cooks who want to expand their skills. Many of those attending have received the class as a Christmas or birthday present, and they seem like an excellent idea for a gift. Chef Marston has a quiet, relaxed and knowledgeable approach to cooking and teaching, and the classes include all sorts of skills instruction, from knife handling to searing and sauteing. “Recipes are a guide,” he tells his students right off. “Don’t be intimidated by them. You’re going to make mistakes. Approach cooking as something fun.” Upcoming classes include flatbread pizza, Southwestern cooking, cooking spicy foods, ways to cook steak, an Italian luncheon and a Men’s Night

At left, Chef John Marston leads a class on how to prepare a meatless luncheon , and above, plated seared sea scallops and a radicchio and fennel slaw. which will focus on barbequing. Throughout the class, Chef Marston is open to questions, and often the students’ questions give him ideas for subjects for future classes. The classes are $55 for an evening class and $35 for the Saturday class – which includes a several course gourmet meal in addition to the education involved in preparing it. You will not leave the class hungry! Classes have been scheduled through to May, and more information about them can be found at the website. The Marstons also own the Thyme to Cook, a chef and cooks store located next to the restaurant, and another aspect of the classes is an opportunity to see and use a wide variety of cooking tools and utensils. Call 463-4929 for more details or to register for an upcoming class. Bring your appetite when you go!

Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Event at Stratton Attempting to top last year ’s turnout and contributions to the Vermont/New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer Snowshoe Series is anticipating a stompin’ good time on Saturday, Jan. 30 on Stratton Mountain. In the partnership with national sponsors such as Tubbs Snowshoes, Columbia Sportswear, and Green Mountain Coffee, the Romp to Stomp offers a fun, affordable, family-friendly way to beat the winter doldrums and get active with a 3k or 5k snowshoe walk or a 3k snowshoe race. Stratton Mountain Resort truly offers a unique snowshoe experience with its gorgeous course that leads Rompers through pleasant wooded trails where they are sure to enjoy the beauty and splendor of the season. "The Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer is a fabulous excuse to get outdoors in the middle of winter and raise money for a great cause at the same time,” said Alyson Ruby, captain of Romp to Stomp team P-Ruby and a past series top fundraiser. “I didn't really know what to expect when I became involved with the event in 2004 as a person who was very new to the sport of snowshoeing and had only recently become a part of a family battling breast cancer. Over the past years as my family's battle became bigger so did our team and our donations. It has been, and will continue to be, an honor to be a part of this wonderful event." Along with the gorgeous winter walk or race, participants also take advantage of free goody bags, sweepstakes, a survivor tribute, and free snowshoe demos from Tubbs (while supplies last). Top team and top individual fundraisers, and top race finishers take home great prizes from sponsors. Event registration for both individuals and teams is available online for $35 a person before Jan. 28, and $40 the day-of. New perks for 2010 include the Lil Romper Program, which allows kids 0-12 to register for free or at a discounted rate, and a Premier Registration upgrade option for participants to receive an official Romp to Stomp long sleeve tech-shirt.

Make a Pillowcase, Make a Difference American Patchwork & Quilting magazine is challenging quilters, crafters and sewers across the country to Make a Pillowcase, Make a Difference. Local quilting enthusiasts will join the cause to help reach the goal of making and donating one million pillowcases to benefit local charities. Hosting pillowcase events locally will be Waterwheel House Quilt Shop located at 6795 Route 100 between Londonderry and Weston.

Get In The Game A View On Sports By Editor Joe Milliken

Local Hoops Action In local hoop action, the Leland & Gray girls' hoop team recently got a nice home win over Proctor, 47-39 in Towshend. Trailing by five points heading into the fourth quarter, the Lady Rebels stage a late comeback to get their fourth win of the season. Ali Marcucci led the come back, hitting two 3pointers plus a couple jumpers in the final quarter. Beth Robinson led all scorers with 17

points while Marcucci pitched in with 14. -------------------------In Springfield, the Cosmos boys' hoop squad recently notched a home win over Windsor, beating the Yellow Jackets rather handily, 68-47 at Dressel Gym. The Cosmos used great ball movement and sharp, 3-point shooting to build an early first quarter lead, and never looked back. Springfield hit six 3-pointers in the first half alone. Senior guard Brandon Boyle led the way for the Cosmos with 17 points, while T.J. Wallace and Ethan McAllister pitched in with 12 and 10 points respectively. Jacob Page led the way for Windsor with 15 points, while Austin Soule added 10. -------------------------The Bellows Falls

Union High School girls' hoop squad recently had a tough time in North Clarendon, dropping a 56-19 loss to Mill River. Mackenzie Mooney led all scorers for Mill River with 11 points, while Marrisa Smith had a nice game for BF with seven points. --------------------------The Bellows Falls boys' squad did not fair any better recently at Mount Saint Joseph, losing to the Mounties, 60-23. MSJ freshman phenom Matt Sanborn led all scorers with 17 points, while Chris Reedy added 14. Luke Brophy led the way for the Terriers with nine points, as BF still searches for it's first win. ------------------------H. S. Hockey Action In local hockey action, Rutland High School recently ended a two-

game losing streak with a tough, 6-3 win over South Burlington in Metro Division boys' hockey action. The Raiders jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one period, however South Burlington came back with two goals of their own in the second period, then another at the start of the third to take the lead. But Rutland took over the game from there, scoring four unanswered goals in the final 10 minutes to cruise to the 63 win. The Raiders also welcomed back captain and first line center Taylor Perry, who had been working his way back from a knee injury. Porrier made an immediate impact upon his return, registering a goal and four assists in the win.

The offense was also led by Tyler Booth, who scored a hat trick, and Matt Mazzariello, who notched a pair of goals. Rutland improved to 8-5 on the year. ---------------------------The Rutland High Lady Raiders also recently got a big win in Essex, knocking off Mount Mansfield, 3-1. Chelsea Hill led the way for the Lady Raiders with two goals, while Erin Reilly scored the third and Kate Kurchena added three assists. Rutland goalie Denna Rodolfy had a great game, making a whopping 21 saves to help preserve the win over the Lady Cougars. ---------------------------Super Bowl Bound NFL - Not that I claim to know much about who will win the Super Bowl, because at the start of the

playoffs I had picked the San Diego Chargers to finally get over the hump and win the Super Bowl (yeah, good call). So, after Sunday's Conference title games, it sure looks like the Super Bowl is going to be a track meet between the two best offenses in the NFL; Peyton Manning's Colts against Drew Brees’ Saints. After knocking off the upstart Jets, it appears that Manning simply cannot be stopped. Try and take away his top two receivers in Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark and that’s no problem, Peyton just turns whatever targets are left (Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie) into Pro-Bowlers for a day and carves up up another win. Sorry Saints, but the Colts won’t be stopped.. Colts 31, Saints 24.

LADY CHIEFTAINS ROLL PAST MOUNT SAINT JOSEPH Story and photos by Joe Milliken - Sports Editor In local girls' high school basketball action, the Green Mountain Lady Chieftains recently hosted Mount Saint Joseph, thoroughly thrashing the Lady Mounties, 93-28, at Nason Gym in Chester. The win put Green Mountain at 11-3 (at press time) as the regular season winds down and the state tournament approaches. This contest was never in doubt from the outset, as the Lady Chiefs combined a smothering full-court, trapping defense with a balanced offense to jump out to an early 11-2 lead. Senior Emma Lisle was effective early with a couple baskets in the paint plus a couple free

throws, while Julie Comstock and Carley Stauffer also notched a couple baskets each. However, it was the stifling Chieftain defense that really created the early lead, producing multiple turnovers right under the MSJ basket which turned into easy lay ups and an eyepopping 30-6 lead after one quarter. The second quarter was no different, as the lady Chiefs continued to play tough defense on one end and dominant offense on the other, stretching the lead to 5013 by half time. The Lady Chiefs already had three players in double-figures at the break. In the third quarter Green Mountain slowed the tempo down a bit as to work on more set plays

in their half court offense, which also allowed MSJ to runs some plays and produce more points in the quarter (nine) than they had in the entire first half. However, in the fourth quarter and with all the starters on the bench, the Green Mountain reserve players stepped on the floor and never skipped a beat, scoring 29 more points in the rout. For Green Mountain, Stauffer finished with a game-high 22 points, while Lisle pitched in with 16 points and eight rebounds. Julie Comstock and Georgia Ladd each finished with 15 points while McKala Benson added 10. Christy Ojala led the way for MSJ with eight points.

Green Mountain’s Betsey Stretton and Emma Lisle surround an MSJ player in the back court.
