Chester family healthier with lead-free program
Springfield inmate threatened governor From Staff & News Reports
email@example.com SPRINGFIELD — On Jan. 26, the Vermont State Police were notified of a threatening letter that had been sent to the Office of Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) from an inmate the Southern State Correctional Facility, located on the Charlestown Road in Springfield. Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Dakota Gardner, 21, of Springfield, sent several letters to Shumlin threatening violence against him and his family. At the time of the incident, Gardner was incarcerated at the Southern State Correctional Facility located in Springfield stemming from a 2009 arrest by the Brattleboro Police Department for aggravated assault. As a result of the investigation, Gardner was cited for three counts of disorderly conduct and is cited to appear in Windsor County Criminal Court. Gardner remains in custody at the Southern State Correctional Facility, which is a Central Level male facility with 370 beds, not including the admissions area. It started operations as Vermont’s newest facility on Oct. 6, 2003 when it accepted its first offenders.
CHESTER — Americans on average spend about 90 percent of their time indoors, and 65 percent of that time is spent in the home. The condition of a home (including the presence of chemical and environmental contaminants), its age, the occupants (especially pets and smokers) can have a significant impact on the health of the family residing there. For children like little Jada Grisczenkow of Chester, who suffers from asthma, the condition of the home is especially significant. At age three, Jada was diagnosed with asthma, a disorder that causes the lungs to swell and narrow, leading to wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and chronic and uncontrollable coughing. She and her other three sisters, also asthma sufferers, are classified as ‘sensitive populations,’ whose condition can leave them especially vulnerable to the presence of allergy-and non-allergy causing substances like dust, chemicals, mold, pollen and dander. These substances exist as potential triggers which can exacerbate asthmatic states. A new Healthy Homes Initiative being launched by Lead Safe and Healthy Homes (LSHH), a program of Parks Place Community Resource Center in Bellows Falls, seeks to ameliorate in-home, environmental hazards that contribute to conditions like asthma, as well as a long list of other health-related problems. As part of the initiative, free, comprehensive healthy home assessments are available (to families with young children who reside in Wind-

The service provided by LSHH is intended to not only educate parents about hazards that may exist in the home but also provide the resources to make a difference. The program has received funding to underwrite the purchase of tangible resources
for parents to address indoor hazards, including dehumidifiers, allergy proof bedding, child proofing supplies and the free use of HEPA vacuum cleaners. The Grisczenkows, who live in Chester, were a recent beneficiary of the initiative. The family is both confident that the asthma related problems experienced by Jada and her siblings will decrease, and
thankful for the increased knowledge and resources gained to combat hidden dangers that are largely preventable. Lead Safe and Healthy Homes is a non-profit program of Parks Place Community Resource Center. To schedule a free assessment, call 4639927 ext. 208 or 207 or email Brianne@parksplacevt.org.
Rutland Southwest teachers end strike From Staff & News Reports
Teachers on strike
POULTNEY – The teachers and boards of the Rutland Southwest Supervisory Union moments ago reached a tentative agreement on a multi-year contract, bringing a six-day strike to a close. The deal came after almost 12 hours of talks with a federal mediator, and represents the first time the sides have come to a contract accord in more than 645 days. “It was clear that both sides really wanted to do the hard work necessary to reach a settlement that is fair to us, fair to our fellow taxpayers and good for our schools and students,” said Kaitlin Cioffi, a Poultney High School biology teacher and the spokeswoman for teachers in the Poultney Teachers Association, the Rutland Southwest Education Association and the Middletown Springs Education Association. “We have missed our classrooms, and look forward to getting to work doing what we love: teaching our students.” Details of the deal will be released once it has been ratified by teachers and each of the school boards in Poultney, Wells, Middletown Springs and Tinmouth. Classes were expected to resume this morning.

Team to monitor Spoonerville Brook From Staff & News Reports
firstname.lastname@example.org SPRINGFIELD — Spoonerville Brook is a small stream that tumbles off high ground in North Springfield. On its way to the Black River, the brook runs along Spoonerville Road and channel through the fringes of local neighborhoods and backyards. A biomass incinerator is being proposed for the area and the plant’s leachfield, to process 129,000 gallons of wastewater, is being sited close to the brook. The stream empties into the Black River approximately 1,000 feet away. The Black River Action Team, a local river watch group, will be monitoring the health of the brook this summer, so it can build a file of environmental data. If and when the incinerator is built, team officials said they will be better able to track conditions, recognize trends, and
note any changes. “One way we'll monitor is by doing an annual inventory of stream creatures -- certain insect larvae live part of their lives under the surface and a few are particularly sensitive to adverse conditions,” said Kelly Stettner of Black River Action Team. “Another way we'll monitor is by sampling the water itself, recording temperature, pH, and the presence and levels of metals and dissolved materials through conductivity,” she noted. “To do this, we need a specialized piece of equipment. To buy it, we're participating in a fundraising effort. Every dollar helps, and pledges will only be collected once, and if, the $200 goal is reached before the deadline; it would be best if the $200 goal is reached by the end of April, so the BRAT has time to order the meter and begin monitoring in May.” For more information, drop by the BRAT office at 101 Perley Gordon Rd. in Springfield.

Opinion From the Editor
Immigration in Vermont
s it just me or are there still a few law-abiding, logically minded Vermont citizens remaining to seriously question why the Vermont State Senate would pass a bill (S. 238) that would OK the creation of a committee to study whether illegal immigrants should be given driver ’s licenses/I.D. cards? Why would certain state senators want to go out of their way to promote illegal immigration since it is clearly against the law in the first place? Some of us might brand these senators as future lawbreakers, that is, if such a measure is ever made “legal” in Vermont. Wouldn’t there be consequences to such lawbreakers? According to a public-interest letter I received in the mail (it was distributed by a citizens group opposed to S.238 and its Senate supporters), “In an earlier form, the bill would have authorized the issuance of licenses and I.D. cards. The change suggests that senators recognize the public is not in favor of giving illegal immigrants licenses. The purpose of the Senate’s study committee is to ‘justify’ passing the legislation next year.” I have never understood the passions stirred up just for giving a pass to illegal aliens. So what other laws would we be eager to circumvent? No matter how sympathetic my friends and family members care to argue in favor of illegal immigration, I will never support it. I oppose it on legal, practical, and philosophical grounds. Our nation has been built on a foundation of laws, so let’s follow them especially when they make practical sense. Intentionally setting out to erode our immigration laws, as well as our sovereign borders, makes no practical or legal sense. It is a highly dangerous, ill-conceived plan.
I think it’s obvious that the politics of special interests in Vermont are behind the eagerness to make it easy for illegals here. (Dare I mention a certain political party, fly-by-night construction companies and others looking for cheap labor that won’t get uppity about no benefits or manure on their boots?) Again, the letter I received stated that, “We already know that giving illegal immigrants a license is a national security risk. It will also attract fraudulent license applications from across the nation and enable illegal immigrants to hold jobs that should be reserved for citizens and legal residents. We need to convince the House to defeat this bill and convince Gov. Peter Shumlin, who currently supports the measure, to veto it if it passes.” I agree that S.238 is radioactive; it is such a terrible, cynical bill that it deserves to be soundly defeated. And those who support it need to be held in the spotlight for electorial review. As a grandson of legal Italian immigrants, I know my lawabiding grandparents, now deceased, would have been appalled with what is going on today. They would have wondered why certain political and business leaders–as well as agendadriven special interest groups–seem to reinforce our growing distrust of government and the legal system–and all for the sake of self interest. Legal immigration is the way we should always welcome new residents to Vermont, like the joyous legal swearing-in ceremony held at the Beeman School in New Haven April 9. It’s time to remind our governor and elected representatives of that fact. Let’s make the path to legal immigration in Vermont easier than merely accommodating illegal immigration and diminishing our legal heritage. Louis Varricchio

fine young, not married couple–both teachers–visited me last weekend. Funny, I’d even think to write, “not married”. Christian upbringing is ingrained in my mind, I guess. No matter, they were perfect guests, very considerate. For example, knowing their arrival time would be approximately 8:30 p.m., Steve understood that’s past most folk’s dinner hour and realized I might hold off from my evening meal until they arrived in case they hadn’t eaten yet. Steve let me off the hook while detailing the couple’s departure and arrival by including the fact they’d eat dinner along the way. His consideration of my normal eating schedule allowed me to choose when I’d eat. He added that his girlfriend was a fantastic baker and they’d be bringing a home baked desert, and I could save room for desert for when they arrived. Many guests wouldn’t have thought my evening through when putting their own schedule together. Of course, I could have asked, “Will you be eating on the road, or should I have something for you when you arrive?” But Steve was far ahead of the game in explaining the specifics of his travel and arrival before I had time to inquire his plans. Great guests do not grow on trees. Nor do great hosts. My house is comfortable, new, sizable, warm, welcoming, with an outstanding view and a crapload of turnaround space, which one shouldn’t discount. Guests have a cozy bedroom with a view, a comfy bed, and their own living area, that includes a bathroom, a rather large lounge space, and a full laundry room. “Make yourself at home,” is a cliché I offer; if I’m free I give my time liberally to the needs and desires of my guests. So, I’ll give myself an A grade, considering all of that, if you don’t mind. But overall, as a host, I’d grade myself only above average. How do I drop from an A, to just above average? Well, I don’t supply washcloths. When I started to entertain guests at my home and went out to buy extra towels, it didn’t dawn on me to buy matching washcloths (until the first time my sister visited). Seems she’s a user of washcloths. How one kid in a family becomes a washcloth user and another doesn’t, I can’t say. No, wait, I can say. I think my folks taught us to use a washcloth. Yeah, they taught us to wet the cloth, then soap the cloth, then soap a wet area, resoap the cloth, soap another wet area, until all areas of your body where sufficiently soaped, then rinse the cloth of soap, and use
it to wipe away the soap and schmegma away from all the prewetted areas you’d soaped. I think that’s how it went. Meanwhile, genius that I am, I figured out all I needed to do was soap my hands, lather my dampened body, rinse, towel off, dress, and get the hell to the kitchen tonk. And I’ve rarely if ever had any one suggest I’m dirty. In theory, the washcloth method seems doable. But, actually try and do it; it’s not doable. The area on the cloth you apply the soap on is hard to cover evenly for one thing, because application is only possible to the part of the cloth covering the palm of you hand. And the cloth is limp, wet, and slippery, and hard to hold, and it flaps around all over the place when you’re washing down parts of yourself, leaving some areas well soaped and others sparsely so. Tell me, please, what’s drier, harder, scratchier and more abrasive than a dry washcloth bent over the towel rack? I’d rather run my finger nails down a chalkboard then pick up a dry washcloth. Oh, can you think of another offensive characteristic of a washcloth? No? Well, how about the smell? Putrid. You’d think something that had been smothered in soap and water would smell great when it dries. Weird. Washcloth washing is a bathing technique that needn’t exist, because it’s totally unnecessary. The good Lord gave us hands, ladies and gentlemen. I reached out to my Facebook friends with this status update recently: “Writing today about the washcloth. You use? I don’t. Any thoughts? Should we do away with them?” My two pages, one personal, one public figure, received 77 comments and 25 likes. It seems folks don’t use them to wash themselves. A good number of folks use them, but mostly for washing anything but themselves like cars, machine parts, sinks, tubs, kids, babies behinds. A gal working in a nursing home said she would be lost without them. (I didn’t care to ask her for details.) Overall from my Facebook feedback, I have decided most aren’t into washcloths for personal cleaning use. So, I’m going to up my grade as a host from above average to a solid B+. Come to my house and stay; we’ll have a ball, just BYOWC. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

News of the Week Interns, grads wanted in Killington KILLINGTON - College students and recent post grads looking for valuable experience working with sports and recreation, people with disabilities and/or non-profit management may wish to apply to one of the many internships that Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports has available this summer. The internships are important to successfully run the largest year-round disabled sports non-profit organization in the state, and Vermont Adaptive's staff is seeking individuals with a diverse talent background. "All of our current program coordinators were interns with us prior to becoming a part of the staff," said Erin Fernandez, executive director of Vermont Adaptive. "While we don't guarantee employment upon completion of an internship with us, we do give our interns a tremendous amount of hands-on experience that is applicable to many careers in disability advocacy, recreation, sports management or outdoor education. We strongly believe that sports and recreation provide a physical, mental and social experience that is immeasurable in promoting selfconfidence and independence in an individual. We expect our interns to share in our passion." An internship with Vermont Adaptive is full time, the duration of which will be determined by the type of position. Summer 2012 internships are available in adaptive cycling, climbing, paddling and program coordination. Interns also assist with other outdoor recreational opportunities like hiking, horseback riding, and more. In addition to the six program positions available, there are also opportunities for development and outreach interns and other areas of interest within non-profit administration. Interns must be available to work flexible hours including weekends, evenings and holidays. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to, assisting with the overall operations of Vermont Adaptive programs specific to the internship location, working with volunteers and staff of the organization as well as its partners, attending local outreach events, maintaining and repairing equipment, helping with special events throughout the state, and assisting with volunteer training days. For specific details about each internship and contact information, interested students should visit www.vermontadaptive.org/interns.php to learn more and download an application. Questions also can be directed to Program Supervisor Dave D'Angelo, at 353-3178.

The Springfield Community Chorus kicked off its 45th year in Ludlow recently.
Springfield Chorus kicks off 45th season LUDLOW – The Springfield Community Chorus, a group of about 40 singers, celebrated its 45th year of bringing choral music to the Springfield area in Ludlow recently. “This is the first year we’ve been invited to sing at the newly refurbished Ludlow Town Hall, at 39 Depot Street, and the Chorus is excited about this opportunity to expand our audience,” according to David Almond, a member of the chorus. “The chorus has several singers from Ludlow, who are happy about singing in their own town.”
The chorus performed at the recent concert which featured choruses from operas and stage musicals. Director Ken Olsson is in his second season with the chorus. “His favorite kind of music is musical theater, opera and musicals, and he brings to the chorus an excellent command of this genre of music,” said Almond. “Our piano accompanist this year is Vladimir Odinokikh who lives in New Hampshire. Among the opera choruses the chorus will be performing during the season are “Pilgrim’s Chorus” from
Tannhauser, by Wagner; “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore by Verdi; “Butterfly’s Entrance” from Madame Butterfly by Puccini; “The Easter Chorus” from Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni. The Chorus will also sing songs from Hello Dolly, The Music Man, West Side Story, and Les Miserables. If you missed the Ludlow performance, the Springfield Community Chorus will be repeating the concert during the coming months. There is no admission fee for chorus concerts, but donations are invited.
Red Cross disaster class in Rutland RUTLAND — The American Red Cross will present “Disaster Services: An Overview” at the Red Cross offices at 117 Strongs Ave. in Rutland, on Monday, April 23, 6-9 p.m.. The presentation will provide an introduction on how a person can volunteer with the American Red Cross so that they can help area communities prevent, prepare for and respond to disaster. Responding to local disasters requires the combined efforts of local and state resources, including private and governmental organizations. Among those community partners is the American Red Cross, a non-governmental non-profit. American Red Cross disaster responses are carried out on a local level by volunteer Disaster Action Teams. “Disaster Services: An Overview” serves as an introduction to Red Cross disaster services and how the Disaster Action Team volunteers fit into disaster response in their area. While the presentation is an introduction to becoming a volunteer American Red Cross Disaster Action Team member, and serves as a prerequisite for all Red Cross disaster training, anyone in the community who is interested in hearing the materials presented in this class is welcome. To register, contact Debbie Lee of the Vermont and the New Hampshire Valley American Red Cross. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 773-9159.

Schools team up for robotics project SPRINGFIELD — Kurn Hattin Home and School students are learning about robotics in their science class. The robots they’re creating are made from kits purchased with a grant from the UVM Extension. There are three robotic projects. The Robogator is a robot which walks and has eyes that are sensors. When it senses movement, it approaches and opens and closes its mouth in a biting motion. The Colorsorter is a robot which identifies the color of balls that are put in its holding area. The Humanoid is a human-like robot that walks and
talks. Science teacher Tom Fontaine invited Marge Ladd’s third grade class from the Westminster Center School to visit and participate in this science unit on robotics at Kurn Hattin. The visiting students worked with the Kurn Hattin 7th and 8th graders and constructed and programmed the Robogator and the Colorsorter. The visiting class enjoyed working with the older students who were visibly proud of their work and being able to share their expertise.

National Forest wind project to move ahead From Staff & News Reports
email@example.com RUTLAND – U.S. Department of Agriculture Eastern Regional Forester Chuck Myers, acting as appeal deciding officer, upheld Forest Supervisor Colleen Madrid’s decision to select an alternative to approve the construction of a 15-turbine wind energy facility on the Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont, which will provide enough electricity to power about 13,000 homes annually. Myers’ decision is in response to four of seven administrative appeals received during a 45-day appeal period that ended on February 24. Two appeals were withdrawn during informal disposition meetings between the Forest Service and individual appellants. One appeal was dismissed due to the appellant not submitting comments during two separate public comment periods, prior to filing an appeal. Major concerns raised in the appeals included effects of the wind turbine facility on black bears, bats, and birds, as well as visual and noise concerns. Regional Forester Myers’ decision to uphold Madrid’s decision includes specific direction to consider information in an updated U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report on the effects of white-nose syndrome on bat mortality, issued on Jan. 17. The announcement is based on a review of the individual
appeals relative to the forest’s extensive environmental analysis and record of decision for the proposal to construct and operate a commercially viable, utility-scale wind energy facility on the national forest in the towns of Searsburg, and Readsboro. The proposed wind facility would be next to the Searsburg Wind Facility operated by Green Mountain Power Company on private land. The facility will consist of 15 2.0 megawatt turbines that will stand 389 feet tall, from the ground to blade tip. The turbines are expected to produce approximately 92,506 MWh with a nameplate capacity of 30 megawatts. The Green Mountain National Forest accepted the formal application from Deerfield Wind, LLC, owned by Iberdrola Renewables, in November 2004. For projects of this magnitude, the Forest Service is required to conduct a National Environmental Policy Act review process, which includes in-depth analysis, scientific studies, and public participation. The Forest Service began the NEPA process for the proposal in July 2005. A similarly required state review process conducted by the Vermont Public Service Board formally began in 2007. The board concluded its review in July 2009, with a decision to approve construction and operation of a 15-turbine configuration, subject to specific conditions. Three other alternatives were considered through the federal NEPA process, in addition to the selected alternative. These alternatives included:
The original proposal presented by the applicant, known as the Proposed Action, was to construct 17 state-of-the-art 2.0 megawatts turbines. Ten turbines would have been constructed on the west ridge and seven would have been constructed on the east ridge, adjacent to the existing Searsburg Wind Facility. The anticipated annual electricity generation for this alternative would have been approximately 99,776 MWh, with a total nameplate capacity of 34 megawatts, enough to meet the annual needs of 14,000 average homes. Another alternative, known as Alternative 3, would have built 7 turbines on the east ridge and no turbines on the west ridge. This alternative would produce approximately 41,084 MWh, with a nameplate capacity of 14 megawatts, enough to meet the annual needs of about 5,800 average homes. A “No Action” alternative, which is required by law and federal regulation. The U.S. Forest Service intends to authorize the project by issuing a special use permit to Deerfield Wind, LLC to use up to 80 acres of National Forest System land. A special use permit will also be issued to Central Vermont Public Service to facilitate the distribution of the power generated by the project over the transmission lines that it currently owns. The Green Mountain National Forest is required by regulation to wait 15 days after Regional Forester Myers’ decision is issued, before it issues a special use permit or otherwise allows implementation of the project. Once constructed, this would be the first commercial-scale wind energy project on National Forest System lands.

LUDLOW — The Friends of the Fletcher Memorial Library in Ludlow kicks off the Third Thursday series of talks by various experts in the community. On Thursday evening
April 19, 7 p.m., well known wildlife expert Forrest Hammond, a biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department, will discuss bears in Vermont. Hammond has worked as a wildlife biologist in Wyoming studying the food habits of black bears and then as the grizzly bear biologist for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department before returning to his home
state of Vermont. In Vermont he is the leader of the department's black bear and turkey programs. Every spring the black bear becomes a topic of conversation and merits an article in the newspapers. In his presentation, Mr. Hammond will enlighten us in the characteristics , feeding habits, environment and the abundance of black bears, the
smallest of the three bear species in North America. Bear numbers are higher today than they have been in 200 years because of improvements in habitat and through management efforts. Some of our questions will revolve around - how do we deal with bears in our areas ? How do we live together in the same community?

LUDLOW – Okemo and Okemo Mountain School had five qualifiers to last month’s J4 Alpine Ski Racing Eastern Championships in Maine. The five boys earned this privilege through their performance at the J4 State Championships held at Pico Mountain last weekend and at Stratton the first weekend in March.

Sean Pomerantz, who was named overall J4 State Champion, qualified first to the event with Will Beney, Connor Marschke, Aidan Riley, and Connor Laurion qualifying 6th, 9th,
12th, and 13th respectively. Vermont will send 26 total male and female athletes to the event where they will compete against qualifiers from all of the other Eastern states.
