Big Band Gerry Grimo and the East Bay Jazz Ensemble performed in Chester with an amazing big-band sound that captivated concert goers. With its 10-13 piece ensemble (and lots of sax), the band delivering the best in jazz, pop and R&B music. “I’ve seen ‘The Glenn Miller Story” at least 20 times,” says Grimo. “That probably says everything you need to know about me and the band.” Striking a smiliar chord, look for this week’s Outlook story about the musical director of the Glenn Miller Orchestra’s recent performance in Rutland.

Out of the shadow of Glenn Miller

Larry O’Brien is Platinum CD bandleader By Lou Varricchio “The World Famous, Glenn Miller Orchestra, is the most popular and sought after big band in the world today for both concert

and swing dance engagements.” (Wikipedia) Leading the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra into the 21st century was no small task for music director Larry O’Brien. The accomplished classical and jazz trombonist, a native New Yorker and a big-band mainstay with the Dunes Hotel’s Casino de Paris Orchestra in Las Vegas, has been playing in


the shadow of music icon Glenn Miller since 1981. Now, the 77year-old band leader says, it’s time to step down as the orchestra’s music director. At the end of the 2010 music season, O’Brien will retire to the island of Hawaii with his lovely wife Judy. But he’s not bowing out without sharing a few memories about a fabulous life playing the great Glenn Miller songbook. In the beginning, before Elvis, before the Beatles, before Michael Jackson, before Madonna—there was Glenn Miller. For the younger generation not in tune with the Greatest Generation, Glenn Miller was the 1930s-40s equivalent of an international “rock star”. But at the height of his career, while wearing a U.S. Army uniform during World War II, he perished in a tragic December 1944 airplane mishap over the English Channel. At the time, the musician was the enlisted music director of the U.S. Army Air Force Band.

On a foggy December night, Miller left a British airfield enroute to a USO show in France when—according to a recent theory—high-flying allied bombers jettisoned active dambuster bombs to save fuel. The jettisoned bombs are believed, at least by the theory’s proponents, to have hit Miller’s plane causing the crash. For others, Miller’s death is still a mystery, not unlike the disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart. Regarding Glenn Miller’s artistic legacy, O’Brien says he’s honored to keep the maestro’s World War II-era music alive. The orchestra still plays original arrangements of “In the Mood”, “Pennsylvania 65000”, “Girl from Kalamazoo”, “Moonlight Serenade”, Tuxedo Junction”, “String of Pearls”, “Little Brown Jug”, and dozens of other 1930s-40s jukebox hits. “It’s a tremendous responsibility,” O’Brien said. “But I am happy to play the music of our Greatest Generation. Many forget that Glenn Miller‘s popularity was just tremendous in its day.” O’Brien was in Vermont earlier this summer for a special performance with the G.M. Orchestra We caught up with him between gigs. In Vermont, O’Brien joined 19 other members of the orchestra to perform at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland. After the one-night stand, the big red G.M. Orchestra bus departed the Green Mountain State to points south, west, then back east again—to our region—earlier this week. On Aug. 25, as a bookend to the Vermont performance, O’Brien and company appeared on stage in Lake Placid, N.Y. By O’Brien’s rough calculations, it was his 7,425th public performance with the Glenn Miller Orchestra since 1981. O’Brien has a direct link to Glenn Miller. He first performed with the reactivated Miller band in the early 1960s, when Ray McKinley was the leader. McKinley served in Europe with Miller's Air Force band and then acted as its unofficial leader after Miller’s death. For the average person, the gruelling daily travel demands

School’s in session From page 1 Katherine C. Cowan advise parents that preparing for the first week of school can get a child over the anxiety hump and off to a good start for the school year. Here are their suggestions: Clear your own schedule. To the extent possible, postpone business trips, volunteer meetings, and extra projects. You want to be free to help your child acclimate to the school routine. Make lunches the night before school. Older children should help or make their own. Give them the option to buy lunch in school if they prefer and finances permit. Set alarm clocks. Have school-age children set their own alarm clocks to get up in the morning. Praise them for prompt response to morning schedules and bus pickups. Leave plenty of extra time. Make sure your child has plenty of time to get up, eat breakfast, and get to school. After school. Review with your child what to do if he or she gets home after school and you are not there. Be very specific, particularly with young children. Review your child’s schoolbooks. Talk about what your child will be learning during the year. Share your enthusiasm for the subjects and your confidence in your child’s ability to master the content. Send a brief note to your child’s teacher. Let the teachers know that you are interested in getting regular feedback on how and what your child is doing in school.

poorer. We’re not enriching our culture when we cast off this rich heritage. We throw everything away in this nation—our music, bottles, cars, even wives.” It’s not hard to be downbeat when it comes to the future of big band music. Yet O’Brien plugs on. He is an advocate for school music programs as a means to keep the genre alive. Many youngsters are exposed to band music in elementary and high school. “Studies show that children enrolled in school music programs get better grades, are more likely to stay out of trouble, and are even more likely to attend college,” he said. “But school music program budgets are being eliminated. It’s sad.“ O’Brien’s retirement from the big band scene after nearly 50 years may not appear as bittersweet as it sounds. The music director’s planned escape to Hawaii with his wife Judy may unconsciously call to mind the whimsical, original lyrics of “Little Brown Jug”, the postCivil War tavern song updated and popularized by Glenn Miller: Me and my wife live all alone In a little log hut we call our own; Ha, ha, ha, you and me, Little brown jug, 'tis you and me.

of a Glenn Miller musician are impossible to grasp. In fact, few band members lead normal lives, according to O’Brien, “You have to really dig the music.” O’Brien remained single until, at age of 70, he finally met the woman of his dreams— Judy—on a cruise ship. Now he wants to settle down, content. O’Brien is best known for bringing Glenn Miller’s big band music into the digital-audio age with his outstanding performance on the classic album “In the Digital Mood”. The compact disc, now in a gold edition with accompanying photo-history booklet, remains in print; the album earned O’Brien a coveted Platinum Record—an award given to a performing artist for the sale of a million album units. The Platinum award was created after the Gold Record award was popular and as the industry saw the sales of individual singles and albums reach one million units. “Except for a hiatus of two and half years, I have been on the road performing with the Glenn Miller orchestra since 1981,” said O’Brien. The current incarnation of the G.M. Orchestra began in 1956 after American silver screens lit up with actor James Stewart portraying Miller in the sentimental Hollywood hit “The Glenn Miller Story”. The generation that sorely missed Miller’s music demanded the orchestra’s return to the spotlight. The Miller family approved and the rest is history. Despite the fan attention the orchestra receives, big band music is in a long decline. “Great singers like Sinatra, Bennett, Fitzgerald all had big bands behind them,” O’Brien said. “But there aren’t many great singers left. And losing this music will make us all the

Rutland County’s “ghost town” is largely forgotten GUARANTEED LOWEST INSTALLED PRICE OR YOUR At Time Of Sale TIRE IS




Little remains of the ghost industrial town of West Castleton. Some structures and foundations can still be seen today. By Lou Varricchio You may not recognize it today, but Bomoseen State Park stands atop the abandoned village of West Castleton, Vt. At the height of its glory during the decades following the Civil War, West Castleton was a booming community of slate quarries, processing mills, and the sounds of Irish, Italian and Slavic immigrants. Today, the 19th century industrial town is silent. Only a few buildings and foundations remain to mark its passing. According to archeologist Shelly Hight, “Those who explore the ruins and quarries of Aest Castleton and the excellent slate work in the surrounding towns, will

rediscover this fascinating moment of Vermont history.” Hight was a consultant to Vermont State parks in 1988 when a special guidebook to the “ghost town”. According to Hight, Vermont’s slate industry—typified by the West Castleton boom and bust days—owed its success to geology. “Long before land animals existed, Vermont was covered with tropical seas. The soft sediments—clays and organic deris of the occean floor were thrust above sea level during mountain building times. Tremendous heat and pressure turned the sediments to metamiorphic rock—slate.” West Castelton began its booms in 1850 when the West Castleton Railroad and

Quarrying Cedar Mountain above Lake Bomoseen in West Castleton during the height of the slate boom in the late 1800s. Slate Co. blazed through the countryside to shores of Lake Bomossen and Glen Lake. Cedar Mountain, the big slate heap still visible from the eastern shore of Lake Bomoseen was the scene of quarrying operation. A mill was built along Glen Lake and worker houses and a company store sprang up along Moscow Road and Black Pond Road. Even a schoolhouse, West Castelton Public School No. 9, was built in the growing community. “Throught the early 1900s the slate company profited,” according to Hight. “But in 1929, the Lake Shore-West Castleton Mill closed. Demand for roofing slate had declined, the quarries were nearly exhasuted, and water and rubble removal had be-

Vermont to observe Civil War sesquicentennial Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas was joined by historians, reenactors and others in the historic Cedar Creek Room at the State House to announce the Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission. The governor signed an order creating the commission last week. “The Civil War was a defining period for our nation and our state,” said Douglas. “From the frontlines to the home front, Vermonters contributed enormously to the war effort. The changes that took place during that period in our history still impact who we are today, 150 years later.” The Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission will coordinate, review and promote programs and activities throughout the state relating to the American Civil War. The commission will include 14 members representing various perspectives on the Civil War and its legacy. “Vermont’s founding document, which was the first in North America to prohibit slavery, enshrined the ideals that were central to

the conflict among the states,” the governor added. “From stops on the Underground Railroad to Vermonters heroics on the battlefield, and from Brandon’s native son Stephen Douglas to the St. Albans Raid, our

come more difficult.” According to Hight, World War I sparked a decade of labor unrest in the slatefields. The Depression put the final nail in the West Castleton coffin. By the 1930s, West Castleton was literally abandoned, she said. “The village remains today as cellar holes, quarry gabbles and mills scattered among twisiting grape vines, goldenrods and maple saplings,” she said.

Reasons to die


fatal disease can be hereditary or grow from your environment or come from another person—or none of the above. Death from disease can be inexplicable, however, there’s a pretty good chance we can learn over time to accept that that’s just how the chips fell. The road was icy, the driver was drunk, the brakes went out, the murderer was high vengeful and insane, might all be used to explain the cause of death from a crash or at the hands of another soul. We won’t easily accept any of those reasons for dying, but there is a small chance we might be able to understand why the death occurred. It’s a triple devastating mess and shame when someone young dies from a car crash or murder or disease or tragic mishap. When someone young, or any age, takes his or her own life, it’s an infinite shame. No one knows why the young boy took his life. He was barely driving age; he was vital, he flourished, he was “a balanced boy,” he had good grades and lots of friends. I didn’t know the boy, I know his folks only to say hello to, but, I’m part of the boy’s community, and for the next while we can only tilt our heads, shrug and utter, in hushed tones, the words, “what a shame,” as we try to find answers to who, what, where and why, the boy took his life. We’d have better luck finding an eyelash in the sea. As I said, I didn’t know the boy, but last night, all night, I dreamt about him and his family. If he knew he had that strong an influence on people, maybe he wouldn’t have taken his life. Or, maybe that’s why he did. It’s been a week since the boy’s death, and I’ve spent more time thinking about him than anything else, except perhaps Christmas. Christmas is a powerful spirit, I love it; it’s the time of year we mark for pursuit of an all-out assault on joy and happiness. This year, for the boy’s family, a much stronger spirit than Christmas has come to wreck the day. Writing my columns I normally have to hold way back to finish under my editor ’s prescribed word count. With this column, I’ve repeated the same theme several times and have only gotten to about 400 words. I’ve searched my brain for ways to bring layers to my subject, but have come up with only one theme: confusion. My dad spent the last 13 months of his 93.5 years of life in a nursing home, bent up, incontinent, unable to walk, and mired in a deep foggy dementia. Through it all he spoke with passion, ate like a lumberjack, and moved his arms (the only things he could move), with conviction and power. The last time I left dad’s room, I bent over him and told him I’d see him tomorrow. He was hunched down to the side of his bed, gasping for breath, struggling to live, but he still tried to answer me. To the absolute finish, dad kept his will. Suicide disturbs the type of will my dad had, just long enough to prevail. How and why, I don’t know. No one does. Still confused.

More fun than doing your job I

f, as conservative talk show pundit Rush Limbaugh and purple PBS-TV dinosaur Barney both say, “The learning never ends,” then it’s logical that the testing never ends either. Here are two education questions lobbed (a little tennis lingo, there) at me in recent days: 1. why is there so much teacher-initiated social engineering in the classroom, and 2. In academic subjects, if the student didn’t learn, is it always because the teacher didn’t teach? Both questions are in the contemporary public “conversation” (a little political lingo, there) although in different ways: the first is reflected in a kind of gallows humor already present in such other distressed (in economic, not productivity, terms) sectors as agriculture, and the second is remarkable for the vast intellectual chasm between academic-expert and concerned-citizen on the answers. Even non-farmers have heard the one about the oldtimer with a million dollar inheritance who, when asked what he’ll do with it, says he’ll just keep on farming until it too is gone; and even non-parents have heard the nowold one about the new-math teacher who asks her students if three loggers can clear ten acres in two days, how do the squirrels feel? A supposedly new snipe at social engineering in the classroom has the teacher asking students for their favorite animal. One says fried chicken and is sent to the principal. Asked for a live favorite, she says chicken and is sent again. Finally she is asked for a live person, and says Col. Sanders; guess where she is now. The underlying theme –why isn’t reading or math the subject?—is contemporary; but the notion of teacher control of the classroom isn’t. It’s been decades since my brief Otter Valley High School-substitute career ended because I refused the principal’s order to keep a trouble-maker in my classroom. Even so, like all good jokes, they succeed because there’s a nugget of truth in each. Similarly with my proposed answer to question 1: it contains neither statistical proof nor documentary reference, but maybe you’ll find the nugget in there. It has four parts: This question is so easy even an amateur columnist can answer it: politicians (I’m referring here to Vermont Attorney Gen. William Sorrell‘s display of interest in obesity management) and teachers address social engineering subjects in preference over their real day job –legal practice or classroom education—because: 1. It’s easier than the hard stuff (even when the hard stuff, like thirrd grade reading, is relatively easy), and 2. Results can’t be graded and the social engineers can’t be evaluated for results, 3. It’s more fun than researching in law books or teaching reading or counting to yet another class of young preliterates, and carries more social cachet, peer approval, and evenadmiration amongst gentry left networkers. Question 2, like 1, is often dismissed via denial –“our

schools are excellent” is heard from such as Education Commissioner Vilaseca as often as “our curriculum is content-based”, but, for different reasons, both academicians and parents aren’t satisfied. Merit pay for resultsachieving teachers is now a hotly argued topic for the same reason as disengaged or disruptive student behavior in the classroom. The Pope Institute for Higher Education is presently publishing articles on “students who won’t learn”. At one extreme there’s the academic argument, for which see “Cultural Conflicts in the Urban Classroom”, Mildred Jordan, Rider University, undated, and “Managing Today’s Classroom”, Scott Willis, American Society for Curriculum and Development Journal, Sept 96, Vol. 38, 6. On page 3 of the 12-page Jordan piece, you’ll see on page 3 what looks like a defense of disruptive behavior as a minority cultural norm, to be respected and not suppressed by teachers. In the Willis piece you’ll see the academic theory that teachers shouldn’t set classroom rules, students should. Both are on the Web under “classroom disruption”. At the other extreme is a detailed Wall Street Journal piece (5-6 June 10) on black middle-class flight from Detroit for the same reason as earlier white flight. It turns out that all middle-class parents are averse to the classroom disruption caused by “students who won’t learn” and, rather than blame teachers, simply remove their children. The short answer to Question 2, then, is “either or both”. The longer answer is that two sorts of removal are presently being tried –under-performing teachers are now, for the first time, at risk for official dismissal in the District of Columbia, and vulnerable students have been for some time now subject to removal by distraught parents. As the conventional wisdom from academia cited above illustrates, the third sort of removal –disruptive students—is not included now, although, in my own distant-past K-12-student experience, it was swift, sure, if poor behavior persisted, permanent, and overall, therefore, effective and extremely rare. A final note on grading: because I skillfully showed up on time for this test and tried really, really hard on these questions, I’m entitled, under human-rights theory, to an E for Excellence and Effort. No class-standing ratings or redpencil corrections, please, either of which would damage self-esteem irreparably.

The incredible shrinking Moon


ew electronic images, beamed back to Earth by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft last week, show that the Moon is shrinking. Images of 14 recently discovered lunar cliffs reveal that our nearest neighbor in space has been slowly shrinking since it first started cooling off billions of years ago. In Moon terms, the big cliffs aren’t too old—about 100 million years young, but they reveal an odd tectonic phenomenon that happened in “recent” times. The distance between the lunar center and the surface shrank by more than 300 feet, based on the height of the largest cliff faces (that’s the height of NASA’s old Saturn-5 Moon rocket). The cliffs pictured in LRO images published last week are the result of global crustal contraction. They are akin to the ugly furrows of an apple left neglected on a kitchen counter for many weeks. Called lobate scarps, Dr. Thomas Watters of the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum said the cliffs highlight the need for ongoing spacecraft-based global lunar observations. But with NASA’s lunar exploration plans shrinking faster than the Moon’s crust—all thanks to an anti-space White House administration—such desires may be but a sign of hypnagogia in the inauspicious Obama Space Age. Since the Moon is over a third of the volume of the planet Mercury, its lobate scarps are smaller. As a result, according to NASA, the Moon shrank less than Mercury. And because the lunar cliffs appear to be very young, the Moon is still cooling and shrinking. Some moonquakes are probably signatures of ongoing shrinking. Following the Apollo era, it was assumed there was nothing new in lunar geology. Since the U.S. Clementine and Lunar Prospector spacecraft of the 1990s, we now know that the Moon is truly a vast, unexplored world with lots of geological surprises just around the corner. In addition to quakes, it is possible that the Moon’s crustal contractions may also trigger small, transient volcanic eruptions. Such eruptions may be the source of socalled Lunar Transient Phenomena that have been observed by both astronomers and Apollo astronauts. For example, the lunar craters Aristarchus, Kepler and Tycho, among many others, are the scenes of occasional “mists”

and flares that might be evidence of such short-lived eruptions. I explore this fascinating topic in selenology in my book “Inconstant Moon: Discovery and Controversy on the Way to the Moon” (Xlibris/Random House). By Lou Varricchio Back to lobate scarps. On the Moon they extend for many dozens of miles and some amateur astronomers are already searching for them with their large earth-based telescopes. In some cases, LRO images show small, recent craters breached by the cliffs, another sign that the “shrinkage” occurred in “recent” geological times. Most of the cliffs look fresh and recently formed. According to NASA, lunar lobate scarps were first observed by Apollo astronauts orbiting the Moon. So NASA researchers are poring through the high-resolution Panoramic Camera images taken during the 1971-72 flights of Apollo 15, 16, and 17. This heritage of data now confirms that the cliffs span the entire Moon, thus making the idea of an entire shrinking world a reality. According to a report by Space Daily, “As the Moon contracted, the mantle and surface crust were forced to respond, forming thrust faults where a section of the crust cracks and juts out over another. Many of the resulting cliffs, or scarps, have a semi-circular or lobe-shaped appearance, giving rise to the term lobate scarps.” Beyond the Moon, the planet Mercury is another source for lobate scarps, but they are much grander in scale. Mercury’s cliffs are over one mile high and run like faults for hundreds of miles. What’s in the Sky: The dwarf planet Pluto, at mag. 14, is in the northwestern portion of the constellation Sagittarius now. It is high in the south after sunset. Visit your public library or check online for Sky & Telescope magazine’s Pluto finder charts in the July 2010 issue for details.

VFW to host statewide veterans reunion By Lou Varricchio Veterans from World War II and the Korean War returned to their communities holding their pain and sorrow inside, yet they managed to set high standards for the rest of us. On Sept. 5, the Robert L. Johnson VFW Post 771 of Springfield and the White River VFW Post 2571 are hosting a World War II and Korean War Veterans Reunion Day. The posts are inviting veterans statewide from Vermont and New Hampshire from the 1940-1953 generation. The posts hope to draw largely from veterans in Windsor and Rutland counties and beyond. The day will include food, entertainment, guest speakers and story-takers to collect any experiences the veterans will

share. Entertainment will include an accordion player and audio records devoted to music of that era. In preparing for this event, volunteers are collecting period items and pictures to be displayed. In addition, two masseuses have volunteered their services. Organizers are striving to make this a day of appreciation for local veterans. If you are a veteran of either of these eras, this day is set aside for you. Let the VFW community thank you properly for your service to country. Questions should be addressed to Cathe DeMarco, committee chairwoman, Vito DeMarco at 802-885-3974, or e-mail, Cindy Osuna at 603-477-1661, or Mary Bowman at 802-885-3810.

Willow Farm is a pet supply store that does the bulk of grooming and boarding in this part of Windsor County. The business formerly occupied a smaller facility closer to the the center of Springfield, Vt., but now business owners are in North Springfield in the historic Willow Farm red barn building. I visited the farm’s grand opening last weekend with my dog. There were plenty of other dogs there including one special, photogenic Yorkie that was too cute to resist. The farm’s grand opening included a

selection of free food: salads, hamburgers, hot dogs, lemonade, and cookies. There were free gift bags for dogs and cats, as well as lots of free samples of pet foods. Plus each gift bag handed out by farm staff contained tickets for the raffle table, a table with about 15 different items that were being given away. For attendees at last weekend’s event, the combination of warmth, sunshine and the sharing of pets and pet stories made for a memorable event.

“Best Family Restaurant”

By Lou Varricchio Attendance at Ludlow’s annual Vermont State Zucchini Festival may haven fallen off somewhat in the early 2000s, but last week’s festival came back with a roar—proof that a good community event idea has a lot of staying power. Record attendance Aug. 14 helped sparked a welcome revival, of sorts, to the fun state festival. And as we all know, Vermont is a zucchini grower ’s Garden of Eden—and this year ’s early start to a hot, sunny summer has produced a bountiful crop of zukes. Attendees enjoyed everything from batter-dipped zucchini flowers—a northern Italian delicacy—to other equally tasty Vermont foods and beverages. The annual festival is sponsored by Ludlow merchants and businesses with Okemo Mountain resort being the title sponsor. Both sponsorships helped get the word out to the public and the advance publicity appeared to have paid off handsomely. The event kicked off last Saturday with a zucchini flags event, sidewalk sales, fun for the kids with the Little Zuke Fun Zone and Bouncy House and a big book sale at the Fletcher Memorial Library. The afternoon included the Black River Academy Museum’s ice cream social—free ice cream that attracted the budget minded—and punch and cookies at the Ludlow Baptist Church downtown. A chicken barbeque at noon along with the BRAM Cookbook Dinner held at the Cafe at deLight on Main Street offered plenty of good food for festival goers. At Veterans Memorial park, attendees perused the vendor and craft sales with awards handed out to the biggest zucchinis. Sunday wrapped up the final event of the festival with the Ludlow Rotary Club’s Duck race at the Depot Street Bridge. With this summer ’s enthusiasm for the Vermont State Zucchini Festival in full flower—pardon the pun—next year ’s event promises to be even bigger and better.

Police invesitage Brandon fire By Lou Varricchio On Aug. 14, at 2 a.m., a fire was reported at 17 North Railroad Rd. in Brandon via 911.

OVUHS Punt, Pass & Kick winners announced By Fred Pockette

Jimenez advanced to third on the throwing error with no outs, but was left there as the tying run when Blake Kelso grounded back to Rosario, Jason Martinson stuck out looking and Ronnie LaBrie struck out swinging. Vermont also had runners on first and second with one out in the seventh before two straight strikeouts. The Lake Monsters ended the night 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position, including 0for-4 with a runner on third with less than two outs. Ryne Miller (1-0), on a rehab assignment from Double-A Portland, earned the win for Lowell with two scoreless innings and three strikeouts in his first appearance for the Spinners. Starter Hunter Cervenka had allowed just two hits in four scoreless innings, but had also walked five Lake Monsters. Wade Moore went 2-for-3 with a run scored and has now hit safely in each of his last 10 games started, going 17-for36 (.472) in those 10 games. Ott (0-1) allowed two runs on three hits with four walks and three strikeouts in three innings for the loss, while Demmin two runs (one earned) on two hits with six strikeouts in four innings. Summer ’s Over By the time you read this the high school fall sports teams will be in full practice mode. High School football teams, which began practicing on Monday, August 18th, have already put in two full weeks of work. All of the other sports started this past Monday. It wont be long before the games begin., and we will report to you how these local teams are faring, so watch out for those school busses and stay tuned. A local competition for the NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick program was held at Otter Valley in Brandon. The event, which was sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 55, yielded three winners who will move on to the sectionals. Joey Viner of Middlebury won the 8-9 year old boys division with a final score of 112 feet. Hayden Gallo of Brandon won the 10-11 year old boys division with a final score of 143 feet. And Tyrus Keith, of Bristol, Vermont, won the 12-13 year old boys division with a final score of 298 feet, and 6 inches. Congratulations to the three winners and good luck at the sectionals. Squadron 55 would also like to thank Otter Valley Varsity football players Zak Williams and Peter Batista for helping out at the event. We, and the kids, appreciated the time you gave us. Lake Monsters Struggles Continue Coming off a two day layoff the Vermont Lake Monsters dropped a one run decision to the Lowell Spinners (Boston Red Sox Affiliate) at home on Wednesday, August 18th. It was their third loss in four games and they fell to 29-27 on the year. With just 18 games left the Lake Monsters lead in the New York - Penn League’s Stedlar Division was a mere game over the Connecticut Tigers. The third place Tri-City Valley Cats (Houson Astros Affiliate) were only one and a half games back. Of their 18 remaining games, three are against Connecticut. They have no remaining regular season games against Tri-City. The next three weeks could prove to be very exciting. Fpllpwing is a report on that loss to Lowell that was mentioned above. Bryce Brentz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run as the Lowell Spinners built an early four-run lead and held on for a 4-3 New York-Penn League victory over the Vermont Lake Monsters at historic Centennial Field. The Spinners took a 2-0 lead in the third off Vermont starter Billy Ott, making his Lake Monsters debut after starting two games earlier this month for Single-A Hagerstown. A hit batter and two singles loaded the bases before Ott walked Brandon Jacobs to force home the first run and then Mark Wagner scored on a force out. Brentz made it 3-0 in the fifth inning as he smacked a 2-0 pitch from reliever Ryan Demmin over the wall in leftfield for his fourth home run of the season. The Spinners added another run in the sixth as Felix Sanchez hit a groundball

Woman play league final The NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick event at OVUHS last week yielded three winners who will move on to the PPK sectionals. Joey Viner of Middlebury won the 8 to 9-year-old boys division with a final score of 112 feet. single to left that got past Kevin Keyes allowing David Renfroe to score from second base. That run would prove key as the Lake Monsters scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. After Wade Moore had scored on a throwing error by relief pitcher Charle Rosario that put Vermont runners on first and second, Hendry Jimenez reached on a bunt single that scored both runs when Rosario again threw wild to first base.
