Fergus the Beagle

Abandoned dog up for adoption By Lou Varricchio SPRINGFIELD — Fergus, the cute 8-year-old beagle who was recently rescued from a trash dump in Londonderry, is doing better, and he’s also up for adoption, according to Tom Browe of the Springfield Humane Society. The animal shelter is looking for a new home for the canine after fixing him up for the better. Browe said the dog had several teeth removed as a result of the ordeal; he is currently receiving antibiotics. “Fergus is doing better,” Browe said. “He was abandoned along with his dog bed. He had been wandering through the dump for several days. “He’s happy and eating. He’s affectionate, loves attention. We also need financial help so that we can be here when another Fergus comes to us in need of extra help to stay alive and well.” Browe said he and the shelter staff coined the Scottish name “Fergus” for the forlorn pooch. His original pet name is unknown. If anyone is interested in adopting Fergus, call Browe at the SHS at 802-885-3997 or e-mail him at: To make a donation to the SHS’ Princess Fund, which helps local abandoned animals like Fergus, mail a check to the Springfield Humane Society, 401 Skitchewaug Trail, Springfield 05156.

Engineering firm opens new office SPRINGFIELD — DuBois & King, Inc., consulting engineers announced the opening of a new Springfield office. The firm provides professional engineering services from Vermont offices in Williston and Randolph and from an office in Bedford, N.H. Over the last 18 months, the firm has added eight engineers, and the new Springfield office will provide a home base for new staff members. Bob Kischko, P.E., a long-time Springfield resident, will head up the new office.

Area Girl Scouting celebrates 99 years RUTLAND — Girl Scouts from across Vermont join sister Girl Scouts nationwide in celebrating the 99th birthday of the founding of Girl Scouting in the United States this month. For nearly a century, the Girl Scouts has stayed true to founder Juliette Gordon Low’s vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. “During Girl Scout Week, we renew our commitment to making the world a better place,” said Patricia Mellor, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts in Vermont. “We know that if a commitment to helping others is learned early in life, it leads to a commitment for all of one’s life.” Girl Scouts are encouraged to participate in religious services of their choice in uniform on these days to show that Girl Scouting is a vital part of the community. Girls also do community service. Gordon Low founded Girl Scouting in March 1912 with one troop of 18 girls. Before women had the right to vote, Girl Scouts were earning their Aviation Badge.

We just started to replenish our Princess Fund for “above and beyond” medical costs from the Beagle who needed all the teeth pulled and dental work when lo and behold we had a dog needing extensive surgery to save her life. So now we badly need donations to our Princess Fund. Two surgeries in 2 weeks totaling over $1,400 depleted the emergency medical fund. We need your help folks so that we can be here for those animals who, through no fault of their own, have been fated to need “above & beyond” medical care.

PITTSFORD — Losing a pet is a very emotional thing. It’s really important that all animals have identification so they can be returned to their owners. An I.D. tag on your pet’s collar is the easiest method. The tag should include your name, address, telephone number and the pet’s name. If there’s extra space, the phone number of the veterinarian is also a good idea. If you move, make sure you get a new tag for your animal with your new contact information. If you have any questions, please call the Rutland County Humane Society at 802-483-6700.



Five year old. Neutered Male. Pit Bull/Boxer mix. I am a big lug of a guy with a huge capacity for love and games of fetch. I have been at the shelter for a while and I am very eager to find a dog bed of my own. I love a good tennis ball and hanging with my people. I ride well in the car and have lovely leash manners, too. I have become quite attached to the staff here and I get anxious when I’m left alone so I am hoping for a family where people are home a lot or can take me with them.


One and half year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Black and White. I arrived at the shelter as a stray with a bit of a bossy attitude but now that I have adjusted to my new friends what a love I am. It will be important for my new family to be patient when I first go home and to give me space to get accustomed to my home. After a short time you will be amazed with my personality.

Wood-fuel project moves ahead

By Lou Varricchio FAIR HAVEN — Beaver Wood Energy wants to construct twin 29-megawatt wood generators — one in Fair Haven and one in Pownal. The cost of each plant is approximately $250 million, according to company officials. The two wood-fueled electricity-generating projects — and accompanying wood-pellet manufacturing operations — will start in Fair Haven first. Many residents of Fair Haven have shown strong support for the project while Pownal residents are less enthusiastic due to the carbon-dioxide (greenhouse) gas and strong odors associated with large wood-burning operations. “We are moving ahead in Fair Haven. We’ll have to wait

for Pownal,” said Bill Bousquet, managing director for Beaver Wood Energy. “In Pownal there are mixed feelings.” Nearly 250 residents of Fair Haven signed a petition to the Public Service Board showing their support of the effort. Beaver Wood needs final approval from the Vermont Public Service Board before moving ahead with construction. The PSB is expected to decide by mid April. If the PSB approves the Beaver Wood plan, construction on the facilities will start by the end of 2011.

Opinion From the Editor

Pull the plug on public broadcasting


PR was in the crosshairs again this month as an independent “sting” operation, conducted by a controversial media activist, revealed just how arrogant and politically partisan the taxpayerfunded broadcast service really is. Regardless of the amount of taxpayer funding NPR and her sister PBS-TV receives — which is more than $450 million annually — it’s time to pull the plug on public-funding of public broadcasting. If public broadcasting must serve a purpose in news and entertainment, fine — but let it stand or fall on it’s own legs, like the rest of the news and broadcasting industry. NPR CEO Vivian Schiller resigned last week after her colleague, Ron Schiller (no relation), sputtered offensive things about Republicans and the Tea Party during the undercover luncheon sting by James O’Keefe, whose operatives posed as potential radical Muslim donors. As a result, both Schillers resigned in a nasty week of multiple black eyes for American public broadcasting. And it was CEO Schiller who took the biggest sword fall. Ah, but let’s not stop the NPR/PBS self sacrificing there. Congress needs to defund all of public broadcasting — immediately. How can public broadcasting ever recover from repeated examples of flagrant arrogance, rabid partisanship, and ineptitude? Vivian Schiller, you may recall, was instrumental in the firing of reporter Juan Williams last October. Williams’ firing was seen as unfair by most of the public. The amiable Williams was sacked after making innocent, on-air remarks about his personal fear of Muslim terrorism while traveling. The Williams affair was just one of a growing list of public broadcasting gaffs that pointed to its irritatingly biased way of managing and reporting the national news. Is it any wonder many fair-minded voters want to stop their support of the “enterprise”? Last week’s NPR sting made for the perfect storm on the issue of public broadcasting, a storm that has many legislators — and many could-care-

less, non-artsy taxpayers — wondering if PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting are worth the nearly $450 million in federal funding they received last year. Despite the mandate of the November 2010 election to reign in government spending and get hold of the ever-spiraling federal deficit, we learn that President Obama still wants to increase the amount for public broadcasting to $451 million. What doesn’t the president understand about the results of the November election? Many of the voters are fed up — and then some — with our government funding everything from recreational bicycle paths to humorist Garrison Keillor ’s radio frolics. NPR and PBS may serve a narrow audience with its arts and cultural programming, but the time of continued public funding of the operations appears at an end. Public radio is a luxury the taxpayer can’t afford anymore. Besides, there are far too many worthier public efforts that have already received, or are about to receives, the axe. Also, when hard-working taxpayers hear that that many high-level public broadcasting officials (like Vivian Schiller) receive annual salaries in excess of $100,000, it’s hard to muster sympathy for continued public funding of things like “Sesame Street” or “All Things Considered.” Here’s our vote on the public broadcasting debate: Either reform NPR and PBS to be inclusive of more broadly public views and issues or simply do without the assistance of we the taxpayers. Can NPR and PBS survive on their own? Sure they can. Welcome to the world of private-sector news gathering, where we all compete, sink or swim on the merits of our products and creativity. Not to fear — there’s still billionaire George Soros and the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation to help out with the shortfall. And instead of Pledge Week — how does Pledge Month grab you?

Where are the productive classrooms?


ov. Peter Shumlin says the No Child Left Behind Act is leaving too many Vermont children be-

hind. “The law is taking too many Vermont schools that are successful and labeling them as failing,” Shumlin told the TimesArgus newspaper, Feb. 27. This entertaining piece of guv-speak goes onto my growing list of educator/politician declarations which illustrate some sort of alternate fantasy universe they occupy. Vermont NAEP test scores in reading and math show “proficiency’’ (ability to function at grade level) achievement by only about a third of all students in all schools. That’s supposed to be the schools’ purpose. Now, when schools don’t make the NCLBrequired Annual Yearly Progress toward 100 percent proficiency (not a particularly high standard, as you can see for yourself if you look at “NAEP sample test questions” and “NECAP grade-level expectations” on the web) by 2014, it’s NCLB’s fault, saith the Guv, who, I’d guess, is a very bright and well-informed guy who knows better. Actually, labeling such moonbeam quotes and behaviors isn’t unique; consider the following. It comes from Kevin Phillips’ “Wealth and Democracy.”

“In 1996, the CPI was adjusted to correct a supposed price over-statement of inflation. Barron’s, the U.S. financial weekly, later mocked both the quality adjustments and the political opportunism … saying they had helped create a palpable gap between the cost of living in the real world that we poor souls inhabit and the cost of living in the Land of Oz fashioned by statistical fancy.” In public education, the longest-running (and most expensive) Oz fantasy has been the class-size-reduction campaign, since the end of WWII, to reduce class size with the promise that it would improve student achievement. Not withstanding all the evidence to the contrary, the educator/politician Oz-speak continues to this day. In Nashville, Vanderbilt University lauded the Tennessee Star Study some years back, and it took almost a decade for more objective researchers to define and publish the covered-over defects in the TSS, which claimed that smaller classes produce better student achievement. They didn't and don't, as more serious researchers like Eric Hanushek and Richard Vedder subsequently proved using objective statistical methods, including the depressing NAEP data see HARRIS, page 14

Servin’ up jokes at all-gals college in Mass.


ad a show this past Tuesday night at Bay Path College in Longmeadow Massachusetts. The show was at 8 p.m., so I took to the highway at 3 and made it there by 6:30. They had a room for me at the Holiday Inn, that after missing the turn for, and being routed back onto the highway, I found, and checked into, by 7. In room 406, after firing the thermostat from 62 to 78, I sat in front of the register and went over the show in my noggin. I was at the school in the parking lot behind the show location by 8:20, where I met my pretty and prompt contact, Chandler, who led me to the performance space, er, cafeteria. Bay Path is an all girls college, and for cripes sakes I had no idea why they booked me. I guess a comedian is a comedian is a comedian. I’m often asked if I get nervous before a show. No, is the general answer. More specifically I’d say if I was doing a play for the first time, or working on a film that required a great deal of memorizing lines for large scenes with intricate patterns of marks to hit, yes, I’d be a bit nervous. Not the type of nervous one is when having to sing “O Holy Night,” at Christmas Eve service, when one is 16 years old, but still, nervous. At Bay Path College I wouldn’t say I was nervous, I’d say I was a bit anxious, anyway. There are few shows for which I’m not at least a slight bit anxious. You could be coming off a stretch of 20 sold-out/full-house, barn burning shows, and still not be totally sure the folks that night will like what you do. You’re never sure — you’re never totally sure folks will laugh. I think the rule is, if you’re sure they’ll laugh, you’re losing your edge. Even less sure was I the late teen early 20 something gals at Bay Path College were going to laugh. Though quite secure with performing, I was feeling a bit, miss-booked, for

the Bay Path Show that would be populated by modern day college gals who were no doubt used to the typical, hold-themike stand-up comedy guys you see on TV. By 8:30 gals started putt-ing into the hall, and instead of staying hidden, I just hung out and chatted them up. If there was a chance they’d not like my country comedy, I figured I’d at least offer them some fun with a bit of relaxed preshow jibber jabbering. The girls were looking for fun. They weren’t the slightest bit on guard against the old rough around the edges guy that is me, and by the time 9 p.m. rolled around, I transitioned from common chit-chat, into my show material, smooth as butter. There were a few girls from Vermont there, which was a sign I’d have at least those few chuckling, but gals from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New Jersey, laughed too, as much as any old coot Vermonter from Eden Mills. What a relief. One gal arrived a half-hour into the show. She was average height, blonde hair, slight, wearing worn jeans, and a tie-dye shirt. I have a good deal of hippie material in the show, and I picked on her by offering to go back and repeat the hippie stuff just for her, since I noted, she looked like she was a bit of a hippie herself. The other gals loved it, and she went along fine, laughing heartily at my teasing, and the subsequent material. I busted out the guitar toward the end of the show, and capped the gig by throwing a Logger thong out to one gal, Jordan, who I’d been going back and forth with throughout. She went for it, and told me she was marrying a Vermonter this summer. To look at her, all fancy and urban-ish, you’d have never guessed she’d be with a Vermont dude. The show ended, and the girls filed away. Chandler and her assistant friend, along with most of the Vermont girls, see LOGGER, page 14

Teacher strike averted From NMP News Reports SOUTH BURLINGTON — South Burlington teachers and School Board members narrowly averted a teachers strike last week. The parties involved agreed on a threeyear contract. Teachers approved the new contract which maintains automatic, taxpayer-funded cost of living increases for teachers. Not all school district residents are happy with the deal. “Why should I, a taxpayer, pay for teachers’ automatic cost-of-living increases?” asks Michael R. Toomey, Jr., of South Burlington. “I have worked here since 1999—I have yet to receive a cost-of-living increase myself. This is why places like Vermont and Wisconsin are a mess. Greedy, overpaid public workers are killing us.” Marie Fitzgerald, chairwoman of the School Board, told reporters that the agreement represented a fair compromise for all the parties involved in the contract negotiations.

‘Canstruction’ comes to campus CASTLETON — Starting this week, there will be a unique bake sale just outside of Jeffords Auditorium at Castleton State College. By purchasing some homemade goodies, you will be helping to support a national effort to provide edibles for local food banks. Canstruction is using one can as a catalyst for change. One can to represent the building blocks of massive sculptures. Since 1992, Canstruction has contributed over 15 million pounds of food to community food banks demonstrating

that we can win the fight against hunger. Rutland County residents can still contribute cans by leaving them outside Room 250 in Leavenworth Hall. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, make checks out to Castleton State College, with a note indicating that it is for Canstruction. Canned structures will be on display in the 1787 Room of the Campus Center.

A View on Sports by Joe Milliken specializing in international corporate law. The Ludlow Teen Center recognizes The McCostis' interest in skiing, as well as three other memorial scholarships in the Peter Noyes Skiing Scholarship, the George Shaw Skiing Scholarship and the Than Durgin Snowboarding Scholarship. The Mission of MSF is to "assist Okemo Valley youth in their pursuit of excellence through skiing and snowboard training. In order to receive an MSF scholarship the criteria is as follows: students must be permanent residents of the Black River Valley, have recommendations from school, coach and community and financial need. Previous scholarship funds have been used to pay for weekend programs and snow academies, as well as assistance with national and international competitions. Of the five snowboarders currently funded, one is in college and the others are junior high and high school students. This season, two of the four MSF-funded snowboarders have qualified for nationals, one is excelling on the high school circuit and the fourth is still in contention for a slot for Nationals. The Pete Noyes Ski Scholarship recipient, Green Mountain Union High School student Rainie Hill, qualified for the J2 nationals and is only one of 15 girls in the east to do so. Also, not only do the students excel on the hill, but many are on the honor role in the classroom as well. To learn more about the McCostis Scholarship Fund, please visit

NASCAR coming to Vermont NASCAR mods at Devil’s Bowl WEST HAVEN — It’s only been a little over a month since the Champlain Valley Racing Association agreed to a sanctioning agreement with NASCAR for the 2011 season, and the positive effects are already being felt, according to officials of Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, Vt. CVRA officials have announced that the winners of the NASCAR Modified division features at both Albany-Saratoga and Devil’s Bowl will now be guaranteed $1,000. In addition, the winners of the Division II level pro late models are guaranteed a payout of $500. “This has all come about because of the overwhelming response of sponsors since we announced our sanction with NASCAR,” said Albany-Saratoga Speedway promoter Bruce Richards. “We had previously announced a sliding scale for the purses, based on the number of cars, but because of the sponsorship that’s coming in, we can now guar-

antee $1,000 to the NASCAR Modified feature winner, $500 for the pro late model winner, $200 for the renegade winner, and $150 for the bomber warrior winner.” Purses for all classes have been adjusted and will be posted on the Web. It was also announced that the pro late models will be running a complete schedule at both Albany-Saratoga and Devil’s Bowl in 2011. “As part of the regular Friday night line-up at AlbanySaratoga last year and in limited engagements at the Bowl, this class consistently put on a great show. With the availability of the NASCAR point fund, we wanted to offer the pro late models the same opportunity at the Bowl this year to run weekly on Sunday,” said Devil’s Bowl promoter Jerry Richards. In addition to the guaranteed winner ’s share, drivers will also be competing for a share of the NASCAR point fund, which will award a combined total of $33,000 to the top 10 competitors in four divisions at both tracks.

Okemo Mt. School appoints new head

Mariel Meringolo ahead. I feel that we have so much potential for growth as a school and look forward to realizing that potential." “The board is thrilled to have Mariel continue as the leader of the school,” said OMS Board President Diane

Mueller. “She has provided stability during this time of transition and now is bringing ideas to the directors to move the school forward.” Many well-known athletes have trained on the slopes of Okemo Mountain Resort as students at Okemo Mountain School. OMS students are highly motivated individuals and the school addresses the needs of these talented skiers and snowboarders, grades 7 through 12, by providing them with an opportunity to train daily and work toward their competitive athletic goals while maintaining high academic standards. Academics are a priority. Instructional time is designed with a low student-to-faculty ratio, allowing students to excel at subjects they might otherwise find challenging. The coaching that OMS students receive is unparalleled.

Leonard named Rookie of the Week CASTLETON — Castleton State College first-year guard Alyssa Leonard has been named NEWBA Rookie of the Week. This is the second time in the past month that she has earned the honor. Leonard averaged 11.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in a 11 week for the Spartans.

With the win, the Spartans advanced to the NAC Championship for the third straight season. Leonard also added eight rebounds and five assists in the contest. One day later, she tallied 10 points and three assists in Castleton State's 67-53 setback to Husson University in the title tilt.

LUDLOW — The Okemo Mountain School Board of Directors announced that Mariel Meringolo, who has been serving as the interim head of school has been named head of school. Last fall, Meringolo replaced Wendy Neal who had worked at the school since its inception 19 years ago. Meringolo graduated magna cum laude from Brandeis University. She has been a member of the OMS staff since 2004 and she has served in a number of different capacities: mathematics department head, development coordinator, special programs coordinator and admissions assistant. "I am excited to have been given the opportunity to continue to serve Okemo Mountain School as the permanent Head of School,” said Meringolo. “This past winter I enjoyed the challenge of the new position and know that with continued hard work and dedication I can continue to meet the challenges



LUDLOW — On Saturday, March 19, the MSF will hold a "Snow Bank Party" to raise funds for the winter scholarships of 2011-12. The Killarney, located at 44 Pond St. in Ludlow, has been the generous supporter of the event for a number of years, will once again host the fun-filled evening. Activities for this years' event include a silent auction, a special raffle, and the band GMB will provide listening and dancing pleasure. Sue McCostis established the McCostis Scholarship Fund (MSF) to help local youth obtaining training in snow sports, little could she have know how meaningful the endeavor would become in the Ludlow area, or how many young people would be assisted through the fund. Over the first few years of the program only one scholarship was given a year, however, MSF has now grown to six scholarships a season. In 2003, Sue had started a fund to provide one scholarship for a local boy to participate in the Okemo weekend alpine racing program, before establishing the MSF in 2004. At the time of her death in 2005, she made her husband and a friend promise to keep the scholarship fund going. Dick fulfilled his promise until his passing in 2007. Sue was a former fashion model, Vice President for Ann Klein and was a ski instructor at Jackson Gore, Okemo Mountain. In addition, she was a board member of the Ludlow Teen Center as well as the Court Diversion Board for the area. Dick was a graduate of Dartmouth College, the Air Force Academy and the University of Virginia Law School. The majority of his law career was in private practice in New York City,

Shake off winter’s chill & warm up to a new season!

Protect your patio from wear and tear P

atios are typically the go-to spot for warm weather outdoor meals.

Whether hosting friends or simply enjoying a relaxing meal under the evening

sky, homeowners tend to spend as much time as possible on the patio once the weather warms up. Because it's such a high-traffic area, the patio should be protected from wear and

tear. Wear and tear on the patio can result from Mother Nature or be a byproduct of all those spring and summer evenings spent relaxing outdoors. Fortunately, there are a handful of ways homeowners can keep their patios looking pristine through the summer party season. *Stain the concrete. Staining concrete protects it from natural elements, which can cause the color of a patio to peel or flake. Concrete stain penetrates deep and infuses the concrete with a permanent color that's less likely to fall victim to the elements. Stains are generally solid-color stains or acid stains. Solid-color stains, as their name suggests, provide a more even and solid look, while acid stains provide a more marble-like appearance. While neither are likely to fade or peel quickly, over time an additional coat or stain might need to be applied to counter natural factors like sunlight. *Cover the furniture. Patio furniture can vary significantly in price and quality. Homeowners who picked up a few plastic chairs at the nearby grocery store might not feel furniture covers are worth the investment. For those with more expensive patio furniture, durable furniture covers that can withstand year-round weather are a sound investment. Waterproof and heatresistant fabric is ideal, as the furniture will be vulnerable to spring rains, summer showers and high temperatures during the

summer party season. Covers should also fit snugly around the furniture to provide optimal protection. *Consider retractable awnings. Retractable awnings might cost a little money, but they can also pay homeowners back over the long haul. First and foremost, retractable awnings protect patio from sunlight and ultraviolet rays in hot weather. A retractable awning can also protect friends and family members should an unexpected summer shower appear or keep them safe from sunburns during summer afternoons when the UV index is high. When placed near a window, retractable awnings can lower energy bills. Such awnings can keep sunlight and ultraviolet rays from entering the home. This lowers the temperature indoors, which reduces reliance on air conditioning units to maintain a comfortable temperature. These awnings can also extend the life of furniture, which tends to fade when placed inside windows that get heavy sun exposure. *Plant trees. An eco-friendly way to maintain and add to a patio's aesthetic appeal is to plant trees around the patio. Trees can protect the patio from sunlight and ultraviolet radiation while providing some shade for friends and family members who want to spend some quality time outdoors on hot afternoons. In addition, trees can create a serene setting to a patio, adding to its relaxing nature.

Shake off winter’s chill & warm up to a new season!

Spring season not fun for allergy sufferers M

any embrace the spring thanks to its warm weather and budding flowers and trees. Those with seasonal allergies, however, may not look so favorably on the new season. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation, about 50 million Americans experience spring allergies. Some may have allergies each and every year. Others may find their allergies are newly discovered. The most common allergy triggers in spring include trees, grasses and weeds. Allergies can evoke a number of symptoms: * itchy eyes * sneezing * congestion * headaches * coughing * runny nose * sore throat * shortness of breath * hives Several of the symptoms of allergies mimic those of the common cold, and allergies are often mistaken for late winter colds. But as time spent outdoors with flowering plants triggers symptoms or inhalation of dust from spring cleaning induces an attack, the allergy culprit may become more apparent. Pollen is one of the main contributors to allergies in the spring. For many people, pollen is seen as an outside invader to the body and its immune system. When pollen is inhaled or comes in contact with the eyes, the immune system triggers a re-

sponse to get rid of the foreign substance. Excess mucous buildup and tears may be generated to wash out the pollen. What all of this fluid can mean is sinus pressure, runny nose, watery eyes, and eventually cough or congestion from fluids running down the breathing passages and into the lungs. As the body prepares to fend off pollen invaders, other symptoms may occur. Fatigue, aches and pains and other flu-like symptoms may be present. While battling pollen, the immune system is in full swing and may not be able to fully devote attention to other invaders, like bacteria and viruses. A person with allergies might be more susceptible to sickness. There really are no cures for common allergies, only methods to manage the symptoms. Individuals with strong allergies to pollen should avoid spending a lot of time outside when pollen counts are especially high or the wind is blowing pollen around. Pollen predictions can be obtained through the local weather report or doing a little investigating online. Here are some other steps to limit troublesome springtime allergies. * Take a shower to wash off pollen from hair and skin after coming indoors. * Launder clothes regularly. * Keep windows and doors closed on high pollen days. * Use a HEPA air filter inside of the home. * Do not air-dry clothes, linens or other items outdoors on a clothesline.

Spring Cleaning? Turn Your Clutter Into Cash!

Showering immediately after spending ample time outdoors can help wash off any pollen that might have accumulated. * Consider using a saline irrigation spray to improve breathing and cleanse the nasal passages of pollen. * Talk with a doctor about the best OTC products available for allergy symptoms. If those are ineffective, prescription medications may work.

Spring clean your way to a healthier home


Renewed vitality may come in spring after the body has a chance to balance the level of hormones.

Spring Fever Syndrome T

here are many people who associate the arrival of spring with a renewed sense of energy that borders on the frantic. But such spring fever is actually quite the opposite ... at least in the beginning. Spring fever is a term used to classify a mood change characterized by low energy, fatigue and apathy early in the spring season. Similar to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), spring fever is a mental condition brought on by the change in seasons. It is common in people who also suffer from SAD. Eventually, spring fever may evolve into feelings of restlessness, intense nervous excitement, high-energy spurts and loss of appetite. The condition is a chemical response in the body to its carcadian rhythm spurred on by sunlight. In the winter, there are fewer hours of sunlight. Sunlight has a direct effect on the production of sero-

tonin and melatonin. Serotonin is the feel-good chemical messenger that affects mood and other bodily functions. In the darker, colder seasons, serotonin can be in short supply, which is why many people feel blue these times of the year. Melatonin is the chemical component that is related to sleep and wakefullness. When there are more hours of darkness, the body produces more melatonin, which in turn makes a person tired. When the spring season arrives, the body can take a while to readjust to the correct levels. Therefore, a person may initially have residual melatonin and a short supply of serotonin in the early spring, accounting for the tiredness and irritability. As the chemical messengers decrease and increase according to sunlight, the reverse takes effect. Aperson may have extra energy and actually feel little need to sleep.

pring cleaning is an annual tradition at households across the country. Whether you live in a studio apartment or a sprawling mansion, the rejuvenating feeling of spring stems from more than just the warm air outdoors. It's also the opportunity to open the windows and let that warm air breathe some new life into your home. Though spring cleaning is primarily about ridding a home of a season's worth of clutter, it should also be about making a home healthier for the months to come. Once the clutter has been cleared, the following cleaning tips can make your home a healthy haven when those inevitable spring showers arrive.

Tackle mold and mildew Few homes can escape the wrath of mold and mildew during the winter months. In addition to being unsightly, exposure to mold can also cause a host of physical problems, including respiratory ailments, eye irritation, and nasal and sinus congestion. Highly effective at controlling mold and mildew, Spray Nine(R) Cleaner/Disinfectant is perfect for tackling existing mold and mildew around the house and preventing any future problems, such as those that commonly result from spring rains.

Clean the filters, ducts and vents Spring might be synonymous with warmer temperatures, but for allergy sufferers spring can be a difficult time of year. When spring cleaning, don't forget to thoroughly clean filters, ducts and vents to help decrease exposure to airborne allergens.

Protect against viruses, bacteria Effectively cleaning a home can involve several preventive measures to keep everyone free from viruses and bacteria. Spray Nine(R) Cleaner/Disinfectant takes just 45 seconds to disinfect a surface of harmful bacteria, including those associated with food poisoning and even infections such as MRSA. Registered as a hospital grade disinfectant by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Spray Nine(R) takes even less time to disinfect a surface against viruses, doing so in just 30 seconds while protecting a home's inhabitants from viruses including Influenza A2 and others that can cause the common cold and respiratory illnesses.

Clear the garage and basement Garages and basements are often used to store paints, paint thinners, oils, solvents, and other potentially toxic supplies. If any of these toxic supplies are old, consult your local sanitation department to determine how best to discard such items. For those you want to keep, be sure the lids are tight and not leaking potentially harmful chemicals into the air.

Make up for lost time For those who don't consider spring cleaning an annual tradition, it's never too late to start making your home a healthier place. Such was the case with Richard Tobias, who was responsible for cleaning his father's old apartment after his father moved to a nursing home. A smoker for 40 years, Tobias' father left behind an apartment with walls encrusted with decades of cigarette smoke.

Butterflies are a spring spectacle

Create homemade outdoor crafts



ew harbingers of spring are more spectacular to look at than the variety of butterflies that take to the skies after they emerge from chrysalis. Although it is widely known that butterflies and moths go through a metamorphosis to turn into their finished forms, many are unaware just how many steps it takes for a butterfly to be ready to fly. 1. A butterfly begins its life as an egg, which a female butterfly lays on a particular plant that the species of butterfly prefers to eat. This is called a host plant. Butterflies are very particular about the type of plant that they eat. Certain species will only eat one type of plant or closely related varieties. 2. When a butterfly hatches from the egg, it is called a larva, or a first instar caterpillar. The insect is very small and does nothing but eat from the host plant. 3. Caterpillars are voracious eaters, and they grow very quickly. The trouble is that their skin cannot grow. A new, larger skin must be formed. To do this the caterpillar must molt its old skin so that the new, larger skin can emerge. As it eats, a caterpillar will go through a few stages depending on the species. It may become a second, third, fourth, and fifth instar caterpillar. 4. A caterpillar that has molted several times may look very different from its initial larval form. It will be much larger and may have different colors and features. 5. During the final molt, the discarded skin will become part of the chrysalis that will house the caterpillar as it pupates. The caterpillar spins a silk girdle that attaches it to a particular location, either on a tree branch or a plant stem. 6. Contrary to popular belief, butterflies are not formed in cocoons. Their pupa is called a chrysalis. Only some varieties of moths transform inside of a cocoon. In the chrysalis, the caterpillar

Butterflies undergo an amazing transformation into the delicate, winged creature that graces spring days. is undergoing a rapid transformation. The chewing mouthparts are turning into the sucking mouthparts of a butterfly. Wings and antennae are also forming. The pupa stage is not merely a hibernation for the caterpillar. It is a time of very active growth. 7. About 10 to 14 days later the butterfly will emerge from the chrysalis. Upon doing so the wings will be wet and small. The butterfly then pumps fluids through the wings to expand them. It also needs to get used to flying. A recently hatched butterfly is very vulnerable until its wings are ready and dry. 8. An adult butterfly eats nectar and reproduces to begin the life cycle anew. Relatively speaking, a butterfly has a short life span. Some species live only a few days. Others may live up to a year. This can make viewing a spectacularly hued butterfly in a spring garden even more poignant for the observer. Adult butterflies looking for nectar will seek out plants in the sunlight; rarely do they feed in the shade. Plants should have red, yellow, orange, pink, or purple blossoms. Flat-topped or clustered flowers are preferred, as are short flower tubes that enable the butterfly's proboscis to fit in easily.

Traditional Awnings of

s families await the arrival of warmer weather, there are things they can do to prepare for a season of fun in the sun. Engaging in some craft projects are ways to beat cabin fever while dreaming of warm, springtime weather to come. There are many craft projects families and children can tackle, but ideas that involve projects that can be put to use outdoors may be the most fitting. Fortunately, there are a number of ideas for crafty projects to involve everyone in the household. * Birdhouse: Head to the hardware store and pick up a few supplies. Otherwise, chances are items that can be made into a birdhouse probably can be found from scraps of materials already around the house or in the garage. Scraps of wood, metal, tiles, plastic, and the like can be used to craft a bird house or feeder. Even an empty plastic bottle can be used. Some nesting material, such as pieces of yarn or cotton, can be placed inside the house to entice birds to take up residence once the weather warms. * Stepping stones: Stepping stones can be a whimsical way to dress up the outdoor garden or yard. A trip to the craft store for some plaster or even a quick-set cement can be the medium to use for the stones. Experiment with shapes that can be used as molds, and gather different materials that can be embedded into the stepping stone, such as pebbles, marbles, beads, etc. Use a pencil or another pointed tool to engrave a message or name on the stepping stones before allowing them to dry and harden. * Kite: The beginning of the spring season often arrives behind a burst of wind. Make the most of blustery conditions by crafting a kite from a kitchen trash bag, some sticks and string. * Garden gnomes: Craft stores often sell unfinished pottery that can be painted and sealed. See if garden gnomes or other whimsical creatures can be found. Use acrylic paint to decorate the figurines in your favorite colors. * Outdoor games: A large piece of plywood or fiberboard can serve as the game board for a number of different activities. Use spray paint to stencil on alternating squares of red and black for a larger than life checkerboard or chess board. For those with more time and creative stamina, use large stones to pain on letters and make an outdoor Scrabble(R) board for fun times with family and friends. * Painted flower pots: If the colors and designs at the local garden center don't fit with a particular design scheme, buy unfinished terra-cotta or plastic pots and paint them with the designs and colors that coordinate better. Getting crafty doesn’t have to mean knitting sweaters or decoupage hat boxes. By making items that can be put to use outdoors, families can usher in the spring season a little early and reap the rewards for months to come.

14 - Green Mountain Outlook

Harris from page 4 (which is a large part of the reason educators despise NCLB) showing flat test scores since 1970, four decades in which class size at national and state levels has been steadily reduced. The promised achievement improvement has been just about zero, with test scores today still in the low 200s out of 500, just as they were then. Increasingly, I find myself thinking back to my own graded school days, when all 25-to-30 of us in the classroom made “proficient” every year, learning not only how to handle the 36 symbols for reading and counting (the Japanese Kanji system requires a couple thousand for basic literacy) but to master such not-even-taught-any-more subjects as grammar and penmanship. I speculate that there are four underlying causes for what economist Vedder labels the “productivity collapse in public education,” and I include the class-size shrinkage for its downward effect on learning (see below) which he doesn’t mention, more than for its upward effect on per-pupil costs, which he does. In no particular order, they are: social-promotion up, achievementpromotion down; classroom-disruptive student behavior up, teacher-authority down; social-issue instruction up, basic competencies down; and class-size reduction. Social-promotion. When I was in, say, grade 7, every classmate there had similarly mastered the grade 6 content. Rarely, one or two who hadn’t

shown proficiency at an earlier grade had to repeat it. Thus, the proficiency rate was 100 percent, exactly what NCLB now seeks by 2014. To what extent social-promotion alone is the cause or symptom of the present 60 percent reading and math non-proficiency rate as revealed by the NAEP test scores, the available literature doesn’t say. Disruptive or disengaged “students.” When I was in public grade school, teacher authority was unquestioned (it still is, in non-public schools) and therefore almost never challenged. Classroom time was almost never devoted to maintenance-of-order, almost always devoted to teaching and learning, and adverse peer-pressure was non-existent. Presently, a handful of States is adopting new statutes to restore that authority. Social-issue instruction. Classroom time is a zero-sum equation: time spent on such matters is time not spent on basic competencies. Several private-school educators have explained to me that larger (traditional) class size enables more student learning, as classmates get more chances to observe each other recite and question. Mathematically, smaller classes equate to more teacher-attention per student, but, apparently, that isn’t the major determinant of achievement and proficiency. Recently, a handful of States has enacted minimum class size rules, but none yet enforces them. When I was in graded school, 65 percent was the subject-mastery passing grade. Anything less was a “flunk.” Of the above four subjects, States are now becoming active on two. That’s 50 percent.

Logger from page 4 hung around for the 10 minutes it takes me to pack up. They walked me to my rig, we shook hands, and I was on the road. The small Italian place I eyed on the way in to town was closed, so I pulled into a MacDonald’s and went in to sit with a couple of cheeseburgers. Ordering, I looked to the drivethru window and there were two gals from the show. They saw me, laughed, and I motioned them to come join me. They did. One of them was a Vermonter, from Lyndon. The other was her roommate, from Connecticut. We chatted about school, mostly about the rules like, no drinking or drugs (aren’t they general life rules?), supped on our ratty fast food, and I left in a cloud of dust. It was 10:45. The drive home is about 3.5 hours, and I had my heart set on a package of chocolate chip cookies made by a local woman, sold at a convenience store that lies 2 hours and 45 minutes up the road. By the time I hit that

store and bought my milk and cookies, I was fully ready to enjoy them as much Thanksgiving dinner. I got home at 2 a.m. or so. Next day’s report from the college booker was very positive. I was glad to see, through all the troubling reports we hear and read about education in our country, that here was a tidy campus, brimming with a diverse group of bright-eyed young women, happy and motivated enough to want to leave their rooms on a Tuesday night, to come and be entertained. Seems to me any of the girls I saw at the show have all the ability in the world to give themselves one helluva chance to live out a fantastic life. It was 11 hours total: seven driving, one performing, and three in limbo. Money in the bank. Show biz. I was glad the girls liked the show.

Hank Vaughan, director of the Spartan Marching Band, is the musical director. The choreography is by Andrew McDuff, a Castleton graduate, who grew up in Pittsford and has choreographed shows for the Rutland Youth Theater and Middlebury and Otter Valley high schools. Performances of “A Chorus Line” will take place in the Casella Theater Thursday, March 17, through Saturday, March 19, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. The second week of performances runs from Wednesday, March 23, through Saturday, March 26, all at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 for general admission.
