Wilkes is new MSJ principal The Vermont Marble Museum will get a new lease on life.
Marble Museum will get elbow room Preservation Trust steps in
By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com PROCTOR — The Vermont Marble Museum may not close after all. Museum officials announced earlier this yeat that the famous museum would close after its utility bill forced the upcoming closure. The Preservation Trust of Vermont has offered a hand to help the museum, according to Paul Bruhn, it’s executive director. The Hemm family, owners of the museum, said they will sign an agreement with the trust July 24. The agreement means that the trust would become the steward of the museum until a new owner is found. A corporate sponsor is also expected to be announced soon. The museum had a spike in visitors July 17 with over 400 admissions resulting from a mass visit by the Model T Ford Club. Club members were in the Rutland area for the organization’s 56th annual get together.
RUTLAND — Members of the advisory board of Mount Saint Joseph Academy of Rutland named Sandra Wilkes as the shcool’s new principal. Wilkes’ brings a wealth of experience to the position, including having served as the Assistant Principal of a large suburban Catholic elementary school and as Service Coordinator for 850 students at Lake Catholic High School in Mentor, Ohio. “Mrs. Wilkes is an accomplished administrator and teacher who understands MSJ’s commitment to excellence in academics, extra-curriculars, and service to the community. We are thrilled that she is making the move from Ohio to lead MSJ,” said Andrew Costello, who serves as Secretary of the Rutland
she is the right person to lead and strengthen MSJ's Catholic identity and academic excellence.” As a theology teacher at Lake Catholic, Wilkes taught freshman and sophomore religion courses. Her teaching background also includes teaching middle school Language Arts and Reading in suburban and inner-city Cleveland Catholic Schools. Her educational credentials include two Master ’s Degrees from Ursuline College, Cleveland, Ohio: one in Educational Administration and Leadership and another in Elementary Education. Her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature is from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Her resume also includes post-graduate See PRINCIPAL, page 12

BRANDON—Robin Callahan of Brandon knew she had an artistic gift at an early age. But it took until her 40s to begin seriously tapping into a deep reservoir of creativity which she now expresses as 21st-century folk art on traditional canvas as well an on some rather unusual surfaces—clothing and furniture, to be exact. “I consider myself an improvisational visual artist,” Callahan said. “I never know
what shape my painting will ultimately take.” Callahan said she approaches her art through the object’s personality upon which she will apply acrylic paint. “I contemplate the personality of the thing until a loose idea or theme forms in my head. Then I just allow the paint to flow off the brush and an image begins to take shape,” she said. Callahan’s work appears on both canvas and wood. See CALLAHAN, page 12

Craftswoman and hand-knit clothing maker Debbie Kirby makes mohair yarn on a New Zealand-made spinning wheel. The wool comes from registered Angora goats raised on her Kirby’s Happy Hoofers Farm located on Forest Dale Road in Brandon. Kirby has a tent at this summer’s Brandon’s Farmers Market featuring yarns and knit items. Kirby’s goats produce a fiber with a staple length of between four and six inches. “Mohair,” she said, “is a truly exquisite fiber. It is referred to as ‘diamond fiber’ within the industry.”

lease help the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) take care of our new arrivals this Summer.
Last year we took in more than 500 kittens and it looks like we'll see that many this year as well. We need lots of supplies to care for these little ones which will allow them to grow strong and healthy so they can be placed in forever homes. Items our kittens need include powdered kitten KMR formula, nursing bottles, dry and canned kitten food, litter pans, toys, heating pad and monetary donations. If you'd like to help the animals with a purrfect donation, kitten supplies would be it. If you have any questions please contact the shelter at 483-6700 or visit rchsvt.org. CHARLEY One year old. Neutered Male. American Shelter Dog. I am a high-energy dog who is finding it hard to spend so much time in a kennel. I’d much rather be out hiking and swimming. I do love water. I’ve met some nice dogs here and doggie play dates are a fun way to burn off steam. I know how to “sit”
and am looking forward to the RCHS obedience classes so I can impress my new family. Right now, whoever takes me home will have to be prepared to invest time and energy into my training (and give me lots of exercise). ROOT BEER Four year old. Neutered Male. Shorthaired Brown American Shelter Dog. Since I got here July 11, I have been making the staff at the shelter smile like a cold soda would on a hot day. One of them said “He’s just an all around nice boy”. I’m easy going and happy to be around people. The veterinarian who saw me at the shelter said I was in excellent health but could stand to lose 5-10 pounds. That’s ok. I like eating but I also like playing chase and my owner said I was good with a Frisbee too. ANNIE Four year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Medium Hair Buff. Oh geez, this place seems a little scary to me. What I really need is a new home where the owners have the time to spend with me so that I can come out of my shell. They just need to be able to see past my timid exterior and into my true personality which
is really very sweet. I lived with other cats in my old home but the cat that’s going to be best for me would be one that doesn’t try to overpower me or boss me around. If you have a lot of time to devote to a timid little girl like me please come down and visit me today. MORSE Five year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Orange Tiger. Remember Morris the handsome cat on television? Well, I could be his brother. I’m thinking this may be how I got my name. I am a friendly fella who just wants to be your sidekick. I arrived on July 1 after there was a fire in my home and my previous owner had to bring me to the shelter. I have never been an outdoor guy so I would like to continue to stay inside where it is safe. So, if you are looking for a fun loving friend, I may be your guy.

Rutland County Humane Society MAX - 1 year old. Neutered Male. White/Brindle American Shelter Dog. I am a handsome young dog who spent my first year with a family that had young kids but no other animals. I am big and goofy and will probably do best in a home where being outdoors and doing stuff is the name of the game as I have a lot of energy. Right now I can get overly excited by new situations, especially dogs that I don’t know, but it is nothing that exercise, patience and training can’t overcome. CLEO - 6 year old. Spayed Female. Brindle American Shelter Dog. When I was a pup, my family had taken me in from a neighbor and I met their other dog Dahlilah and we’ve been best friends ever since. We’ve had an adventure filled life with them. I enjoyed swimming and hiking and about two years ago a baby joined the family and he was kind of fun too. Most of all, though, I enjoyed hanging out with Dalilah and I’ve gotten very dependent on her to feel okay about things. The folks who work here are very interested in seeing us go to a new home together because they know how much I need her. ANNIE - 4 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Medium Hair Buff. Oh geez, this place seems a little scary to me. What I really need is a new home where the owners have the time to spend with me so that I can come out of my shell. They just need to be able to see past my timid exterior and into my true personality which is really very sweet. I lived with other cats in my old home but the cat that’s going to be best for me would be one that doesn’t try to overpower me or boss me around. If you have a lot of time to devote to a timid little girl like me please come down and visit me today. FAITH - 2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Brown Tiger. Take a look at my feet. They are huge just like my personality. I am a very loving girl who really likes to be around people. I arrived at RCHS as a stray with my 4 kittens. Well actually they got here before me - we were separated for a couple of days - and finally we all were reunited in our foster home. I was so happy to see them again. I was a great mom. I am a very playful and loving girl.

Aviator’s daughter reflects on life in the shadow of famous parents By Lou Varricchio
CHESTER — Misty Valley Books in Chester is one of those rare gathering places where famous names appear to meet and exchange ideas with everyday folks—what a treasure such places are for Vermont readers. On Thursday, July 26, at 5 p.m., Reeve Lindbergh will make a special appearance at the Chester bookshop to discuss a new book, titled “Against Wind and Tide, Letters and Journals, 1947-1986”. It’s a collection of her mother ’s previously unpublished diaries and letters. Lindbergh, a Vermont resident, is the daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the pilot’s wife and a celebrated author and environmental advocate. Reeve Lindbergh, stepping out from the long shadows cast by two famous parents, is an accomplished woman of letters in her own right. She is the author of “Under a Wing,” “Forward from Here,” and several other critically acclaimed books. According to Lynne S. Reed of Misty Valley Books, ”Anne Morrow Lindbergh struggled with issues women and men have had to face in every era: what to make of a complex, difficult marriage to a person one loves, how to reconcile the impulse toward creativity and the need to work—with the practical demands of home and family.” No stranger to the Chester bookshop, Reed Famous name: Author and editor Reeve Lindbergh will speak and meet with customers at Misty Valley Books in Chester, July 26, at 5 p.m. Photo courtesy of the Lindbergh Foundation said Reeve Lindbergh is a remarkable woman. “Anne Morrow Lindbergh comes to life through the skillful editing of Reeve, and this amazing life story continues to inspire us,” she said. Reed said Reeve’s sixth and final collection takes readers from 1947 to 1986, between Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s 40th and 80th birthdays. “It’s a treasury of vivid, poignant, perceptive and often delightful pieces of communication, each in its own way directed toward a greater understanding of what it means to be a human being, a writer and a mother,” she said. A reception and book signing will follow Lindbergh’s remarks. For directions, call the bookstore at (802) 875-3400 or visit mvbooks.com or on Facebook.

Opinion From the Editor
The world we live in
ast week’s massacre in a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., shattered America’s sense of security. But unlike the Sept. 11 attacks, it appears we can’t blame this heinous act on foreign persons known or unknown; it was the alleged act of one person, an American citizen named James Holmes. So, who do we blame? And from what deep well of poison does such demonic violence spring? Do we blame Hollywood for glorifying violence when we ourselves willingly patronize such entertainment? The price of the culture of violence is not America’s alone to bear. It exists on all continents, and in nearly all cultures today. A day does not pass in which we don’t hear reports of ultra violence in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia or even “peaceful” Canada to the north. All nation states have examples of such horrific crimes, be it individual, religious, racial, or political hatred. Humanity’s propensity for violence—from words of hate to ethnic cleansing of entire peoples—is written in much of Homo sapiens’ history. Today, we blame the nature of the the listless, soulless, amoral age in which we live. At other times, we blamed something else. On a weekend Fox News television report, the Rev. Gregory Adkins of the Fairlington United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Va., said that it “has become normal to feel adrift in a sea of ambiguity. We don't understand.” Another individual asked to help explain last week’s massacre was Colin Goddard. Goddard, 26, was a Virginia Tech student in 2007. He was shot four times in that tragic campus attack. Thankfully, he survived that college massacre and now talks about stopping the violence. Goddard told USA Today on Saturday, "I have asked my dad, 'As crazy as young people think the world is now, when you were a young person, did you think the world was this crazy? You had possible nuclear attacks and different kinds of underlying fears in society,' He said, ‘no,’; he didn't think it was as intense as it is now… This is the world we live in.” The question Goddard and other shooting victims are asking today is a simple one: “Do we want to change that world?" If the answer is yes, then it will not be an easy task. We may have to rewrite the foundation of modern society. A new kind of civil war of hate is ablaze in the land, and it came into stark focus in a movie theater in Colorado last week. I wonder, do we have the courage to discover the root cause of this hate? And are we willing to look at ourselves in the mirror? We may not like what we see. Lou Varricchio

don’t vacate because I’d feel guilty. My life has been and is a blur of simpleness and ease, one without conflict. Therefore, sittin’ on a beach, peering across the Grand Canyon, or crunching bread n’ spittin olive pits over a balustrade in Tuscany, are three of many activities for which I’d feel undeserved to actuate. I’ve had it and have got it made. And I’m pretty sure you have too. Back in the day, you know, the day, when more Americans worked hard at hard work, you didn’t see folks grilling every night. And you didn’t see them grilling right on through the winter, either. Saturday night, maybe Sunday night they grilled, if they grilled at all. Cripes, we didn’t even have a grill. We had a skillet and that was it. Ma and Pa didn’t go roun’ spending money on things we didn’t need. Nope, it was ham steak in the skillet Mr. Bubby, and it wasn’t bad. Grilling is a treat, something back in the day you allowed the family to enjoy, if all the family’s members had fulfilled their weekly responsibilities. Now we grill because we haven’t fulfilled our weekly responsibilities. We grill because we think we deserve it because we think we work so danged-assed hard all week, in these so-called very difficult (You gotta be kidding me) times. We think life’s work is so difficult that we shouldn’t be expected to finish our work and clear up our responsibilities, and therefore it’s fine for us to grill every day of the week and weekend. It’s our “therapy,” is what we tell ourselves. Compared to those who’ve come before us we’re weak. I know I am. I’m soft. I’m so soft, I picked up a four pack of toilet paper at Hannaford today and it laughed at me. We’re weak and have become soft because we think we’re entitled. And the older we are, the less we realize that we feel entitled. We think only the “young kids” feel entitled. Though I don’t want to harp on the young folks, I do feel there’s merit in thinking they’re feeling entitled
right out of the box. How could they not feel that way? Cripes, my friend’s kid was a senior this year and they were given the opportunity to a attend a prom, a last chapel, a class trip, a project graduation, they each got a personal graduation gift, and the private parties went on for weeks. Holy hell, man, I got a cake with a plastic dude standing on top that my Ma painted my school colors with Testor ’s model paint using one of those tiny bristled paint brushes. And I was embarrassed by the display. Sure I felt worthy of the plastic guy dressed in graduation garb, but the paint job made me feel like I’d never live up to my mother ’s efforts. And I was right. I’m not sure what the personal gift the school gave the graduates was, but I wouldn’t be crazy surprised if it was a grill. Did you read “Unbroken”? It’s fantastic. Read it if you have the time. (Trick suggestion, because, of course you have the time, you’re living in what I call the “Ease Generation”) After you do you’ll come around to thinking you and I, and your kid, should not for a split second ever feel entitled to grilling and frivolous, self-absorbed wastes of time and money vacations. Trust me, read that book and you’ll never again feel any need to “refresh.”

Hundreds of Model T cars tour Rutland, Addison counties By Lou Varricchio
RUTLAND — Motor-vehicle drivers around Rutland County and Addison County did more than a few about faces last week as they watched hundreds of antique Ford Model-T cars and trucks, manufactured between 1908 and 1927 make a circuit of U.S. Route 7 and numerous backroads—between Rutland and Vergennes—before converging on downtown Rutland. The grand, antique car summer road tour occurred July 16-20. The gathering, the 56th Annual Model-T Car Show, was made possible by the Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce, Model-T Ford Club, and downtown merchants, July 17. Vermont’s Second City served as an historic backdrop for the parade of cars, activities and displays. Downtown streets were closed for the arrival of the Tin Lizzies during the afternoon hours of July 17. The afternoon party included a fashion show and a jazz concert, both evocative of the early 20th century’s Jazz Age. Steve Shotwell of Rochester Hills, Mich., was cooking a blueberry pie on the engine manifold of his 1916 Model T during the event. “Several companies made engine stoves like the one I am using,” he said. “This one was a Coca Cola stove. It takes about 20 minutes to cook the pie from the residual engine heat.” When the pie was ready to serve, Shotwell

shared pieces with passersby. Crocker ’s Model T was originally owned by his maternal grandfather Lewis Crocker in Fredonia, N.Y. When Crocker died in 1974, the car was sold at an auction and it slipped out of family hands. During the 1980s, Shotwell’s mother tracked down the car and bought the old car back from its second owner. Affectionately called “Goosebumps” by his grandfather, the old Ford is back in the family again. On the passenger side door are the scratched initials of Crocker, family members and the
second owner. “We have more family initials back on the door,” Shotwell said proudly. Tom Sadlon and Don Buesing of the Saratoga Automobile Museum in New York drove a rare, 1925 Model T popcorn-refreshment wagon to Rutland. The wagon has been a favorite at the Vermont State Fair for many years; it was once eyed by T.V. entertainer Jay Leno as a possible addition to his multimillion dollar auto collection. Using all-antique utensils, Sadlon and Buesing prepared popcorn and served it to
attendees “the old fashioned way”. Steven Boyd of Siren, Wis., trucked his 1914 Model T to Vermont, via a modern Ford F150, just for the event. “This is a chance for me to play,” he said. “The weather is fine and the people are friendly; they are really interested in these old cars.” Boyd’s Model T car sports a brass radiator and headlights, the next to the last year Ford offered brass fittings. “The ‘T’ came from Henry Ford’s model lettering system, although he didn’t use all the letters of the alphabet. In the case of color, Ford used standard black to replace brass starting in 1916,” Boyd said, “to reduce costs. If you wanted a blue or red car, you had to repaint a black one. Even back in the old days, automakers were looking to reduce costs.” Auto owners and enthusiasts exchanged stories and talked with curious passersby, each with an eye toward Ford motorcar history and Henry Ford’s amazing vehicle that revolutionized ground transportation. “My 1914 Model T is working fine now although I confess I needed a tow, briefly, last week when she overheated in New Jersey,” said Bob Myrick of Wilmington, Del. “We made it to Vermont in one piece and all is fine now. Now it usually doesn’t bother me, but it was odd to see my old Ford being towed by a big 2010 Chevrolet truck. It was just a tad humiliating for this proud Ford owner,” Myrick said. The Model T car owners also made a trip to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum on July 19.

First area revival of “Dances with Wolves” in 22 years set for Aug. 2 By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com LUDLOW — It’s hard to believe it has been 22 years since the Western classic “Dances with Wolves” has appeared on the big screen in Windsor County. But thanks to FOLA, the Friends of Ludlow Auditorium, the Oscar-winning motion picture will make its first big screening here since 1990, the year the film was released. The film will be screened for one performance only, Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium at 7 p.m. Kevin Costner produced, directed and starred in the epic film which tells the story of a U.S. Army lieutenant who travels to the American frontier to find a military post where he encounters a group of Sioux Indians. The film is based loosely on several true-to-life sketches of U.S. cavalry soldiers stationed in the Dakota Territory in the 1870s. “The film won best picture Oscar plus five other Academy Awards,” according to FOLA’s Ralph Pace. “Costner ’s character, Lt. John Dunbar, is dubbed a hero after he accidentally leads Union troops to a victory during the Civil War. He requests a position on the western frontier, but finds it deserted. He soon finds out he is not alone, but meets a wolf he dubs Two Socks and a curious Indian tribe. Dunbar is known as Dances with Wolves to the native people and as time passes he becomes enamoured by the beautiful Stands with a Fist. He must make a decision that will not only affect him, but also the lives of the natives he now calls “his people.” Pace has been an active FOLA member responsible for bringing outstanding cinema to showcase the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium’s state-of-the-art audio and video screening system. The single public screening of “Dances with Wolves” is free but donations are appreciated. For details, call 228-7239. A preview of this modern classic film is available at FOLA's web site, www.fola.us.
The frist public screening of “Dances with Wolves”, in the Ludlow area since 1990, takes place Aug. 2 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall Auditorium. Photo provided
Vermont students attend Youth Leadership event in Washington, D.C. By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org SPRINGFIELD—Kurn Hattin Home, located south of Springfield near the Connecticut River, provides children opportunities they would not otherwise receive. Being able to visit the nation’s capital is certainly one of those opportunities; the experience remains in a child’s memory for life. Recently, six children and their principal and residential director boarded the blue Kurn Hattin bus and traveled to Washington D.C. to participate in the first annual National Fellowship of Child Care Executives Youth Leadership Summit. Twenty-five youngsters from seven childrens homes around the U.S. participated in the leadership workshops and historical and cultural sightseeing. The days and nights were full of discussion and enriching activities. Students saw for themselves the great memorials, Arlington Cemetery, the museums, the National Archives, and the U.S. Capitol building that they had only seen and read about in their school books and on the Internet. They were challenged with questions and mottos: Be the change you want to see in the world, how badly do you want to succeed, your future is not yet written, and how will your story end? The area youngsters in attendance seemed to have learned a basic truth at the Vermont school: if life brings you down, you need to pick yourself up and keep going. KHH valedictorian Scarlett Stanhope said, “I felt like I was stepping into other people’s shoes—like Martin Luther King, Jr. or one of the many of the presidents. I also realized that Vermont is just a small part of the world and even though we are all living different lives, we are all the same. Every little thing counts and if we all work together, we can do something great.” KHH is a charitable, residential, yearround home and school for in-need and atrisk children, ages 6-15, from throughout the northeast region.
Several Vermont students were in Washinton, D.C., recently to participate in a youth leadership event.

Lost and found: â€˜70s glass â€˜time capsuleâ€™ found By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com BELLOWS FALLSâ€”A message-in-a-bottle that was set adrift in the White River in 1977 was found by a teenager July 19. The time capsuleâ€™s contents, a handwritten note exposed to three decades of water, was still partially legible. Justin Shepard, 14, of Bellows Falls found an open bottle
with a handwritten message signed by its creator, Sean Keown. The bottle was set adrift in the river in Rochester. Now, 35 years later, its finder has tracked down the owner with some assistance. Shepard said the bottle did not have a cap or cork, but he was able to discern the writer â€™s name as Sean Keown. According to Keown, who tossed the bottle with its message into the White River more than 70 miles from where it
was found, he and a friend launched several bottles from Rochester during the summer of 1977. Keownâ€™s message included a promise of a small reward to whomever discovered the bottle at some time in the future. Being a student enrolled in the local elementary school in 1977, the bottler was thinking candy, maybe a soft drink. Now Keown is rethinking the reward and may offer cash to Shepard.

Most Vermont incumbents running for reelection MIDDLEBURY â€” Ballotpedia, an online almanac about state politics, released its analysis of Vermontâ€™s 2012 state legislative competitive index. The index analyzes which states have the most and least competitive electoral environments. According to Ballotpedia, of Vermontâ€™s 180 seats up for election in November, 156 incumbents are running for reelection. 13 of 156 (8.3 percent) incumbents will face a primary opponent. 23 of 180 (12.8 percent) districts are open seats, meaning there are no incumbents running in them. And in 51 of the 180 (28.3 percent) districts, there will be only one major party candidate in the general election. â€œSimilarly to 2010, Vermontâ€™s state elections will once again be dominated by the incumbent. However, with 23 open districts there will be opportunities for new voices to be heard in the Rhode Island State Legislature,â€? said Tyler King, Editor of Ballotpediaâ€™s State Legislative Competitiveness Index. In its third year, the Ballotpedia state legislative competitive index looks at three factors: is the incumbent running for re-election in a district; if so, does he or she draw a primary challenge; and are there two major party candidates in the general election. The comprehensive 2012 state legislative competitive index will be released following the completion of the primaries in all 43 states with 2012 state leg-
ally, 68 (37.8%) did not face another major party candidate in the general election. Nationally, incumbents ran for reelection in 4,985 of the 6,125 (81.4 percent) seats up for the 2010 election. Vermont was also ranked 40th in the nation in 2010 for incumbents who faced a primary challenge with 147 (93 percent) of incumbents who ran for re-election not facing a primary challenger. Nationally, 3,852 of the 4,985 (77.3 percent) incumbents faced no challenger in the primary.

Ludlow Food Shelf running on empty Donations needed immediately
By Ralph Pace
firstname.lastname@example.org LUDLOW — According to Audrey Bridge, executive director of Black River Good Neighbors Services, the demand for food items from BRGNS' food shelves has been extraordinarily high. “This has resulted in a rapid depletion of basic food items normally available to area clients,” Bridge said. Last week, Bridge examined the somewhat empty shelves in the thrift store operated by BRGNS at 37B Main St. (the former Tank Barn next to the Ludlow Community Center). She indicated that there was specific needs for the following food items: canned fruits and vegetables, canned potatoes, dry potatoes, tomato and pasta sauces, boxed macaroni and cheese, cereals, fruit juices, peanut butter and jams and jellies, canned soup, canned meats, and pasta. Items may be delivered to the BRGNS' Thrift Store during normal working hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. For additional information, call 228-3663 or e-mail Bridge at email@example.com. t

Bridport man’s truck linked to Dick’s theft By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org RUTLAND TOWN — On July 18, at approximately 4 p.m., Vermont State Police Trooper Rene Klementowski responded to a theft complaint from Dick's Sporting Goods Store, located on U.S. Route 7, in Rutland Town.
Witnesses told Trooper Klementowski that two unidentified white males stole approximately $90 of merchandise. The subjects left the area in a silver truck, bearing Vermont registration number 102A864. One of the suspects was described as having facial hair and a tattoo on his neck. Vermont Department of Motor Vehicle shows that this reg-
istration belongs to a red Ford pickup truck, belonging to Wright Myrick of Bridport. Myrick’s registration expired October 2010, according to Klementowski. If anyone has any information about the theft or Myrick, contact Klementowski at the Vermont State Police Rutland Barracks at 773-9101.

Gardening in drought conditions Dr. Leonard Perry
Extension Professor University of Vermont Even if not officially in drought conditions, many areas in recent summers have had less than normal rainfall or very dry surface conditions. If one looks at the climate data (weather.gov), many areas have had two week periods with no rain, or with very little, or any rain came all at once in one area and none in another nearby. The rule of thumb for plantings is an inch of water per week. If you’re faced with dry garden conditions, there are some ways to keep your plants and lawn alive while minimizing water usage. Cultural Practices • If still planting flowers and vegetables, use wider spacing to reduce competition for soil moisture, mulching between plants. • Incorporate organic matter into the soil, which will aid in water retention. Compost also adds nutrients, but breaks down faster than peat moss--another common amendment. Peat moss lasts longer in the soil, at least a year or more, but adds few nutrients and acidifies the soil (which is easily corrected with liming). • Use three to four inches (after settling) of organic mulch (pine or cedar bark, weed-free straw, wood chips, or similar) to prevent soil from drying and losing moisture to the air.
Keep mulch away from trunks and off the top of desirable perennials. Using plastic mulches or weed fabric around shrubs in paths, or in vegetable and annual flower gardens in which plants are spaced regularly, can help as well. Or place thick layers of newspapers in rows, covered lightly with mulch as you do with the weed fabric. • Fertilize less, both less in amount and less often, and avoid applying too much high nitrogen fertilizer. Too much nitrogen results in excessive growth and increased need for water by lawns and plants. Organic fertilizers provide less nitrogen to the soil and usually release it slower over a longer period, as well as help improve soil humus, which helps hold water. • Choose and place plants properly. Don't select plants that prefer moist conditions, and place them in a dry area. Choose plants more resistant to drought. These include many other plants in addition to cacti and succulents, such as those with deep taproots (baptisia or false lupine), thick storage roots (daylilies), or waxy coated leaves (sedum). Perennial flowers need water when newly planted, but once established require much less water than annual flowers. Native plants may be a good choice as well. • Don't apply pesticides that might cause injury to stressed plants, or which in heat need to be watered in. • Avoid pruning when plants are stressed and not growing and are thus unable to heal wounds quickly. Pruning also may stimulate side shoots and more growth, creating the need for
July 25, 2012 more water. • For evergreens, use antitranspirant sprays on leaves to help prevent water loss. Or erect windbreaks around such plants, if they're small or new and in a windy area. Burlap strung between posts is effective. For routinely windy sites, consider planting a more permanent windbreak of spruces, firs, or other evergreens to screen other plantings. • Water slowly, well, and deeply every couple days or even less unless plants wilt or soil is quite poor. This promotes deeper rooting than light daily watering. • When watering, don’t use sprinklers unless on areas of lawn—they waste water, often in dry conditions with half evaporating. Rather, hand water, using a reduced flow rate. Especially with dry or crusted soil, a forceful stream of water will simply run away from the desired plants. There are many inexpensive watering devices that easily control the flow right at the hose end, including shut-offs and “water breakers”. This way too, you can turn the water off while moving between plants and locations. • If you haven’t planted perennials and woody plants yet, wait until the weather moderates and rains return. I often wait until early fall to plant these, as the days are cooler and less stressful on the plants, there is generally more rain, and there is still time for plants to establish before winter. Plus I find it is easier to water a group of pots that to drag the hose all over the yard, often forgetting to water some new planting. • Use hoeing and soil cultivation of weeds sparingly. Continually disturbing the soil surface will result in it drying out much faster. You may have to cut weeds off at the soil surface, or use contact or systemic herbicides and save the cultivation until drought conditions ease. At least the bright side is that under drought, weeds won't grow as fast either! But keep weeds down, as they compete with more desirable plants for water. Container plantings • Move container plants to more shaded areas, so the soil won't dry out as quickly. • Use pottery containers that are glazed on the outside, which prevents much water loss. Or use plastic containers which, if unattractive, can be set into more attractive outer pottery ones. • Don't crowd too many plants into containers, or use large containers for large plants. This will help keep them from drying out as often and requiring watering daily or more often. Use water absorbing products in containers and hanging baskets. Lawns • If seeding or repairing lawns, use drought resistant grass types such as fine fescues. • Leave grass clippings after mowing to act as mulch, and recycle nutrients and moisture. • If water is not available, allow grass to go dormant. Unless there are extreme conditions for a long period, grass usually will begin growing again once conditions improve. • If your lawn routinely in summer dries up, such as on poor and sandy soils, consider investing in an in-ground irrigation system if possible and your lawn is a priority. If too expensive for a whole lawn, consider adding it in stages, or just in certain areas. • Consider turning some lawn into a mass planting of groundcovers this fall that won’t need mowing and that will withstand drought. • Don't mow grass when it is dormant and not growing. Even when growing, set the mower height at two to three inches high. High mown grass develops deeper root systems that are better able to withstand drought. • Avoid walking and playing on dry, dormant lawns as much as possible. If water is restricted or in short supply, give highest priority to the following: • Newly planted trees, shrubs, and perennials • Newly seeded lawns or repaired lawn areas • Plants on sandy soils or windy and exposed sites • Vegetables when flowering 33475

Old-time lotions, potions discussed From Staff & News Reports
email@example.com CAVENDISH — What did the founding families of Cavendish, Coffeen, Dutton and Proctor have in common? The founders, and their wives, all lived well into old age, even by today’s standards. Founder John Coffeen died at age 75 and his wife, at age 94. Salmon Dutton was 80 years old and his wife Sarah was 83 at the time of death. Rounding out this group of sequoians was Leonard Proctor, age 93, and his wife, age 84, at the time of their passing. Interestingly, there was no doctor to treat the family, so what was their secret? At a public program at the Cavdendish Historical Society on Main Street last week—titled “Lotions, Potions and Notions”—the fascinating health care practices of Vermonters from the late 1700s through the end of the Civil War was examined in some graphic detail. Leading the workshop was Margo Caulfield, coordinator of the Cavendish Historical Society. She is also a co-director of Chronic Conditions Information Network. According to Caulfield, “One of the things to note about these early founders—they naturally lived nearly all of the Nine Principles of a Blue Zone.” Blue Zones refer to those parts of the world with the highest concentration of male centenarians. “The daily life of the early settlers fit very much in line with those living in Blue Zones as their day would have naturally included exercise, a sense of belonging, community and purpose; strong family life; faith and a diet of whole foods.” Today, with all of the benefits of electricity and the potential to work around the clock, we have a difficult time ‘down shifting’ our busy lives, according to Caulfied. Periods of rest were built into the lives of settlers due to long winters and honoring the Sabbath. There was sufficient natural light to work for extended periods past dusk, too. “Even though there is considerable discussion about Obamacare, one can look to our town history to understand how we can increase our life expectancy far more than what our health care system provides,” she added. New Englanders had other ways to stay in shape. For the rich of coastal New England, the gymnasticon—a late-18thcentury exercise machine invented by Francis Lownde— gave a good workout. Caulfield said a good source to learn more about how early New Englanders lived a healthy lifestyle is online at www.cavendishhistoricalsocietynews.blogspot.com. In addition to exploring the various herbs and practices of this era, Caulfield also provided an unusual dental care demonstration.

Gossens Bachman Architects/Housing Vermont/Rockingham Area Community Land Trust (Windsor): NAMCO Block, a large, energy inefficient, run-down apartment building in Windsor was renovated to reinvent its role in the community as a mixed income, community-oriented facility that retains its historical character while serving as a model of social responsibility and environmental sustainability. White River Partnership (South Royalton): Particularly hard hit by Tropical Storm Irene in the White River Watershed, the White River Partnership immediately mobilized to assist municipalities, private residents, state and federal agencies and served as local liaison in a coordinated flood response – organizing debris cleanup, answering homeowner questions, and overseeing in-stream restoration and construction projects. Individual Category Melissa Pierce (Montpelier): A Service Learning Sustainability and Resource Conservation Project has been implemented by 4th and 5th grade teacher Melissa Pierce to create a rich environmental education supplement to the curriculum involving field trips, source reduction projects for water bottles and plastic bags, waste audits, and a school-wide recycling and composting program where none existed. Educational Institution Category Milton School District (Milton): The junior/senior high school corrected a major erosion problem caused by stormwater discharges and constructed an innovative stormwater storage and groundwater recharge system that will also conserve water by reusing the water for irrigation. Champlain College (Burlington): Campus-wide sustainability initiative that has resulted in a 26 percent reduction in energy use, 2% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and advances in environmental curriculum at the college. Honorable Mention Burlington International Airport (South Burlington): The airport has reduced its energy consumption 20 percent by implementing a comprehensive energy conservation project that included the terminal building, roadway, parking garage, and airfield lighting. Middlebury College (Middlebury): A team of 85 Middlebury College students across 25 academic disciplines designed and built an all-solar powered home, taking fourth place in the 2011 Solar Decathlon International Competition
sponsored by the U.S. Dept. of Energy. Vermont Fuel Dealers Association (Montpelier): In 2011, the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association launched their clean and Green Oil Heat Initiative to improve greenhouse gas emissions, reduce dependence on foreign oil, and support local family farms – by writing draft legislation (signed into law in 2011) which sets a timeline and trigger for using ultra low sulfur heating oil blended with biodiesel.

BENSON — Officerss of the Vermont State Police’s Rutland Barracks investigated a crash between a pickup truck and a motorcycle, at the intersection of Route 22A and Lake Road in Benson, July 14, at approximately 1:39 p.m. Investigation revealed that a 2004 Buell motorcycle, operated by Jeremy G. Hadvab, 32, of Orwell, was stopped on Lake Road at the intersection with Route 22A preparing to turn right. During this time, a 2003 Dodge Dakota truck, operated by Joseph J. Smith, 53, of Castleton, was turning left onto Lake Road from Route 22A. According to statements made by the parties involved, Smith did not see Hadvab and his motorcycle stopped at the intersection. Investigation shows that Smith took the turn too sharply and travelled into the lane occupied by the motorcycle. The truck’s mirror stuck Hadvab in the left shoulder causing his motorcycle to tip over. After the collision, both vehicles were able to be removed from the scene by the owners. As a result of the crash, Hadvab sustained a puncture wound injury to his left calf believed to be caused by one of the foot pegs on the motorcycle. Hadvab was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center by the Fair Haven Rescue Squad and treated for his injuries. Smith and the occupants of his truck were all wearing their seatbelts. The operator of the motorcycle was wearing his helmet at the time of collision.

Callahan from page 1 For example, the artist-designer seems especially adept at depicting fanciful landscapes with objects in what can only be described as silhouettes. Trees and people appear back lit by either the rising, midday, or setting sun or the Moon and distant stars. One of her iconic folk paintings on canvas, titled “The Gathering”, depicts a group of people gathering in a woodland at dusk. Stars appear in twilight sky of “The Gathering” as silhouetted men and women assemble—some clearly nude, others clothed— for what appears to be something akin to pop singer Van Morrison’s “Moondance”. This work exudes pagan joys and mysteries that excites the viewer to want to be part of the dusk festivities—if only we could project ourselves into the painting’s altered reality. Callahan’s newest creative expression is in painting recycled

furniture. Transformed by the her brush strokes, an early 20th century vanity is transformed into a thing of folk beauty with either figures, such as a horse or celestial objects, or other symbols, painted on the tops, sides and drawer faces. One wooden chest Callahan painted sports an exquisitely detailed lotus flower adrift in azure ether. With a painted oriental prayer rug on the chest’s flat top, the old piece of furniture could easily become a mystic’s home altar or simply household art emanating a Zen-like tranquility. “I paint with acrylics on reclaimed furniture or objects fashioned from recycled building materials and scraps,” Callahan said. “It’s always a wonderment to look upon a newly finished piece and marvel at how the end results actually compare to the first, loose concept.” For the discerning observer of Callahan’s art, mystical and playful patterns abound. Such patterns have been confirmed by the artist as well. “Yes, there are patterns; my pieces convey a mood,” Callahan agreed. “I like feelings of wonderment, peace, serenity, contentment. I also like secluded, quiet places where moonlight sparkles on the water and fireflies twinkle in the trees.” The artist has also created works of folk art on recycled denim clothing, either retrieved from thrift shops or discarded from wardrobes of friends and neighbors. Case in point: a farmer’s bib overalls have been transformed by the artist into psychedelic wear with Grateful Dead dancing bears around the hand script, “What a long strange trip it’s been.” “It’s all about taking disposable things and creating something useful and beautiful from them,” Callahan said. “It makes me happy to give new life and value to things otherwise destined for a landfill.” For more information about Callahan’s art, call 989-9513, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. She is happy to arrange showings of existing art pieces or take on commission assignments.
