Community News, Sports, Arts, Entertainment and Food for Rutland and Southern Vermont

By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com SPRINGFIELD — For the first time since the founding of Springfield High School in 1895, the school has canceled its varsity football season. The remaining games on the calendar of the 2012 were scrubbed, according to school officials, because of safety reasons. Springfield High School Head Coach Kevin Tallman told parents and students last week that the SHS Cosmos didn’t have “the depth” required for even an average high school varsity football team. Principal Bob Thibault said he felt bad about the decision but that it was the right thing to do. “It’s what’s best for the kids—not winning or losing,” Thibault said. “Getting concussions and other injuries is a big concern. In good conscience, SHS is not equipped to play Division II football.” Thibault said the Cosmos will continue to field its junior varsity team. Athletic Director Joe Brown met with varsity players to apologize. “I applaud the team for sticking through when others gave up,” Brown said. The decision to cancel the varsity Cosmos season was likely due to recent, large and embarrassing losses against Otter Valley and Fair Haven. The final Cosmos game against Lyndon Institute was forfeited.

Utility to turn Eastman property into energy center Downtown site will include offices, energy exhibits

By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com RUTLAND — Green Mountain Power ’s plan to turn a blighted downtown Rutland property into a corporate Energy Innovation Center is a major step on the way to transforming Rutland into its anticipated Solar City status Both city and utility officials agree — it’s time for the downtown's largest, empty, and arguably most blighted property to be turned into a tax producing and employment generator. See POWER, page 12

Green Mountain Power President and CEO Mary Powell: “We will create a place in Rutland where customers can learn about energy and the environmental impact of energy decisions. The center will help our customers envision a new world of energy choices.”

Rutland-based ‘Pure Water’ wins humanitarian award By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com RUTLAND — Few people have heard of the Rutland-based non-profit orientization Pure Water for the World. The low-profile humanitarian organization doesn’t really have a bricks-andmortar address in town, just a post office box

number. Founded in 1994 by a Brattleboro dentist, Pure Water is hard at work at its mission to bringing safe drinking water to impoverished communities, notably Haiti and Honduras. On Sept., 21, the Rutland organization was presented with a Classy Award for Excellence in the Humanitarian, Nonprofit Field. Classys are to the charity field what Oscars are to motion picture

arts and sciences. Pure Water staff members made the trip to San Diego, Calif., the receive the honor in person. The award singled out Pure Water for the World’s outstanding assistance in disaster relief and international aid in Honduras and Haiti. “Being selected as the regional Classy winner See PURE WATER, page 6

Rutland coworkers win Outlook’s $1,000 ‘Grand Prize’ Chris Howe was 2011 winner, too By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com

Chris Howe of Pittsford, and Dan Probst of Rutland, discovered this year’s Outlook Grand Prize. The men successfully solved the clues indicating where a $1,000 certificate was hidden on a mountainside in the Mendon area. The clues and their meanings will be published next week.

R. Brown & Sons INC

RUTLAND — Chris Howe of Pittsford and Dan Probst of Rutland are this year ’s Grand Prize winners. The men are employees of Garden Time in Rutland and followed the clues faithfully. Howe and Probst found the prize at the dead end of Killington Road, on East Mountain in the Mendon area. Howe was also last year ’s Grand Prize winner. Was it simply good work or hard work involved in finding two Grand Prizes back to back? “I got the hang of the game last year,” Howe said. “This year I really got into the clues and what they meant exactly. It really takes you on a wild ride in search of $1,000.” Howe will split the $1,000 with Probst, his coworker and fellow game player. Both men played a part in their ultimate success. “We’ll do it all over again next year,” Probst said. The Outlook will publish all the 2012 Grand Prize clues, and their various meanings, in the Oct. 6 issue.

I arrived as a stray from East Wallingford after a citizen found me out and about. I am hoping I don’t lose my way again because being out there on my own was no fun. I have a feeling there is someone out there who would like a colorful lady like me in their future so stop in and see me - I am not hard to find. FISHY 2 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Brown & Black Tiger. I know, something’s Fishy here. You have to wonder how such a handsome boy made it out there on the streets as a stray.

Police looking for blue minivan with spare tire on roof

By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com LEICESTER — Vermont State Police are looking for the driver of a blue minivan, model unknown, after it struck an unidentified girl. The van had a spare tire mounted on its roof. The van driver did not stop and sped off. The hit-and-run incident occurred Sept. 4 at a few minutes after 6 p.m. along Lake Dunmore Road in Leicester. The girl, who apparently sustained minor injuries, told a VSP trooper that she was walking along Lake Dunmore Road when the van struck her. The passenger side mirror of the minivan was damaged after it struck the girl. Eyewitness or anyone who have identified the minivan should contact the state police immediately.

Blessing of animals to be held on Proctorsville Green By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com PROCTORSVILLE — The unspoken bond between people and their pets is like no other, and science has shown that companion animals promote emotional and physical well being in their humans. In return, we shelter, feed, love and protect them. Every October, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures, churches nationwide hold ceremonies that bless the animals. On Saturday, Oct. 6, the St. James Methodist Church will

join with Gethsemane Episcopal Church for their annual Blessing of Animals on the Proctorsville Green. Rev. Richard Bower and Rev. Kevin White, animal loverd and pastors of their own flocks, will perform the ceremony. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end at noon, rain or shine. Pets should be leashed or in carriers. All animals, large or small, will be blessed. For more information call 226-7187. At Right: The Rev. Richard Bower blessing a dog at the 2011 Blessing of the Animals in Proctorsville. This year’s blessing will be held Saturday, Oct. 6, 10 a.m., on the Proctorsville Green.

Autumn critters to populate Brandon Harvest Fest, Sept. 29 By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com BRANDON — Brandon’s annual Harvest Fest will take place Saturday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m., in Central Park. The theme of this year ’s event is “Making Harvest People”, the folksy, autumnal stick figures, scarecrows and leaf creatures tourists see on display around Vermont this time of year. Visitors to the festival are encouraged to create their own harvest people creations. Members of the Brandon Lions Club, Brandon Rotary Club and St. Mary’s Church will provide hayrides and local foods and beverages for festival goers. Marne Nichols, a long-time Harvest Fest participant, said visitors can make their own harvest figure at the park. “We have all the stuff you need—straw, clothing, personal accessories, even a lesson on how to make the harvest people,” Nichols said. “You make the basic figure and then our volunteer staffers will complete it—or you can do the entire job, if you like.” Nichols said the first harvest figure made is free, then it’s $5 for each additional figure assembled.

Thoughts about things to come

A

recent weekend edition of USA Today included a special section, titled “The Next 30 Years”. It focused on what life, and day-to-day things, will be like in the year 2042—30 years hence. The special section included interviews with some of the world’s most notable visionaries in their fields, such as Hollywood’s James Cameron (on the future of cinema and video), architect Andres Duany (on the future of American lifestyles and urban living), high-flying celebrity British capitalist Sir Richard Branson (on the future of private spaceflight), and—well—you get the idea. While Sir Richard’s prediction, that millions of common folk (aka, you and me) will be flying in 90-minute-long hypersonic, suborbital aerospace arcs between New York and Tokyo by 2042 is wild at best, others were less science fictional and grounded in 2012 reality. For example, architect and urban planner Andres Duany—who is best known for crafting the faux, beachfront Pleasantville known as Seaside, Fla.—predicts that by 2042 more people will be living in bigger cities with smaller homes, smaller yards, and ever shrinking personal transportation options. Duany’s idea of utopia 2042 is for more people to sit on their newly crafted front porches and spend more time pedaling bicycles to work. While quaint for the most part, Duany may be on to something. Duany likes designing his post-modern houses with old-fashioned front porches based on the Ray Bradburyesque idea that our culture lost something when front porches vanished from architectural plans. Thus, we no longer take the time to know our neighbors or sit and rock alongside Aunt Bee after a hard time commuting our gas guzzlers two hours to the office. No matter, finding time to relax, reflect, and meditate everyday is a very healthy idea, but how much of this is just wishful, thinking on the part of some visionaries and academics? Who will keep our ever-shrinking sector of the ever-growing competitive world marketplace going while we relax and enjoy a bike ride to work (after sipping comfrey tea and reading USA Today on the front porch)? In 2012 reality, things seem to be going the other way. Now, of Duany’s idea about shrinking personal space, I think he’s on to something. Have you visited a large American city like New York or Boston recently? Proximity to entertainment, culture, and all-night bar hopping aside, have you ever really second guessed your choice of fleeing such a place to live in Vermont? In the cities of the year 2042 of visionaries like Duany, there’ll be even less chance of finding your personal center compared to life in today’s cities. Duany’s “New Urbanism”—of ever more elbow-to-elbow jostling (while we grow zucchini next to rooftop solar panels and windmills)—may have its utopian appeal, it’s not really the kind of future I choose to live in. There must be something, which blends the best of all futures, someplace in between. Still, many of our currently elected, central-planning-prone politicians on the national stage seem determined to get us into Duany’s “New Urbanism” as quickly as possible. They want us out of our cars and onto sidewalks (which every Vermont home should have by 2042), as they take away our Big Gulps, our smokes, our comfortable luxe sedans—even our gasoline. And all for what? So, we have more time to sit on the front porch? Don’t get me wrong. I don’t totally disagree with Duany’s vision of what future life will be like, but how much of our current, perceived scarcity of resources and diminished horizons are just our generation’s version of the fear of the future? (I remember my father stocking U.S. Civil Defense nutrition-cracker tins in the basement of our family’s suburban house when the Cuban Missile Crisis was dominating the front pages of newspapers). No matter, I guess there’s one thing about predicting the future that is certain: it never turns out the way you imagined it—or planned for it. Louis Varricchio

The value of Liberty and Life

S

ome days it’s hard to be optimistic and positive about the future. Current events around the world, wrangling political parties warning us the other side will drive us into Armageddon, the unemployment rate, fuel prices and the general mood of folks lately is anything but uplifting. I’ve heard some people say the mood is downright mean-spirited and that people seem to be self consumed. Some blame it on the talking heads; others blame it on the political system, TV programming, the media, or the internet. In reality there is plenty of blame to go around, but most of us need look no further than the mirror. We’ve all played a role in the arrival of the dark clouds hanging over our heads these days. The liberty and freedoms we so thankfully enjoy don’t create happiness by themselves, they only set the stage. Like a big jigsaw puzzle, one piece can have an overwhelming influence over the other pieces or it can just fall into place with all of the others. Sometimes the solution to the puzzle is right in front of us, we just have to look. Other times, the solution can be lost in the sheer number of pieces surrounding it. Look no further than the recent events in the Middle East. After years of totalitarian rule, where every move of the people was controlled by a stiffhanded dictator, years of pent-up anger and a desire to test the limits of this newfound freedom are being released. The population there is finding they are as frustrated now as they were before they overthrew the former government. How much do you think their lives would improve if they brought about death to America, as they so often chant during their protests? On the other hand, how much have our lives or the world changed since the deaths of Osama Bin Laden, Sadim Hussein or Moammar Gadhafi? Those three men were killers and treated the people of their nations horribly, but their deaths alone have not brought about instant gratification to their nations, nor have their deaths altered people’s attitudes toward America. They were once influential pieces to the puzzle, but they were never the complete picture. There is no magic formula to finding happiness and a life of freedom and liberty. Like a puzzle it’s a process and one that, after more than 200 years of existence, America is still working to complete. At the core of our Constitution and the rights we’ve been awarded as a free people it all boils down to the value we place on those rights. Without realizing the full value these rights give us they are only words on paper that governments, leaders, lawyers

We write about the flavor of the month thing to hate, like rich people (not my attitude. I like rich people; they’re the same as poor people, I like them.

We write about how we love our cats, kids, parents, grandparents, dogs, community and state, and why we’re suspicious of government and politicians, and pesticides, and rap lyrics, and who’s responsible for the rise in the cost of gas and food and property taxes. We write about were we’d like to travel, were we have traveled, how we traveled and whom we traveled with. We write about changing leaves, styles, and tires, and when fall is about gone into winter, and about not getting any younger, getting older, wiser, fatter, weaker, thinner and stronger. We write about the danged Holidays. Not just the Holiday Season. New Years Day, Presidents Day, Martin Luther King Day, Bennington Battle Day, Memorial Day, all the Day days and the others whose titles don’t include Day.

Yes. 24 year-old women. A high school kid when she attended a concert I worked. She, her friends and I took a photo, then later she spied a feeler I’d placed looking for help and I hired her to work my merchandise table, at that Champlain Valley Fair. Sixteen I’ll guess she was; dependable, prompt, smart, quick and trustworthy. Lucky for me she worked my booth all through high school and college to earn extra money. No booth hours to give her this year, but fall house-buttonup work needed doing, so she came over and helped with that. She also assisted on a half-day photo session I did early

or citizens can easily minimize. But when we place great value and cherish these rights as one of our most prized possesDan Alexander sions, and are willing to Thoughts from risk everything for fear Behind the Pressline of losing them, we begin to understand their true value. Let me put it another way. Recently I was visiting an employee who experienced a serious accident while on the job that placed him in the hospital, paralyzed from the shoulders down. We are all praying an operation will restore the full use of his body, but until the results of the operation are realized he is left hoping for the simple things many of us take for granted every day. In speaking with him, the joys of moving his body at will, hugging his wife, children and grandchildren, walking on his own two feet once again and the joy of just living his life will now be the greatest of gifts. When the stark realization of what you’ve lost may never return you truly realize the value of what you’ve lost, and if returned, no day in the future would ever be taken for granted. If every human being could come to that simple realization, without undergoing the pain of losing or never having known those precious gifts, and be willing to celebrate that same opportunity with every other human life that shares this small planet, how great would this world be and how thankful and respectful would we be toward each other? Oh sure, we would still have problems to resolve, but we would be far more understanding and willing to work with each other to overcome the simple things while valuing the irreplaceable things. Is any day not a great day where you have your health, family and the freedom to pursue your version of happiness? The most self destructive thing we can do in life is to assume that our happiness comes from someone else’s misery. In life, in politics and in our communities happiness is built on the simple joys of building something together and celebrating the joy of that accomplishment. This country, while far from perfect, will only find its way out from under the dark clouds when we remember to cherish how far we’ve come as a nation and work together to pass along that same opportunity and these important values to the generations that follow.

She reads books, can talk music, movies, pop culture (not including politics), and if talk turns to something she’s not familiar with, she listens, and gets it. Very impressed with her painting work. She treated my entire 46-foot wrap around deck, and spindles, without spilling a drop, in three and one-half hours. I’d guess Erin could do about anything with an ounce of instruction. So can a lot of other folks, right? Right. But a lot of folks don’t want to do just about anything. A lot of folks want to do just about enough. Erin’s soon to be all over the map. She’s all set to high tail it from the Green Mountain State she loves so much and head west. Thoroughly figured, detailed, timed, and budgeted, is her 3,000-mile trip west (estimate), to Redondo Beach, Calif. A fine place for her to bed for now, or forever; she’s leaving it open. Her sister and brother in-law and niece live there, so she’s well anchored from which to sniff out potential ground for her roots to take hold. By the way, for Erin, this isn’t a “there’s nothing going on around here”, or “I gotta get the heck out of Dodge City” thing. She likes Dodge. She loves Dodge. She just recognizes independence as a gift; placing herself far away from what she knows is a potential rewards holding challenge that would be silly to pass up. Why don’t we write much about 24 year-old women? Cause few are as brassy as Erin. “Hey, Erin, you all ready for your trip?” Finishing the treatment of the deck. “Well, I still have one thing to shop for.” “What’s that?,” I ask. “Pepper spray.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Alderman’s joined auto dealers on Plug-In Weekend By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com RUTLAND — Automobile dealerships across Vermont partnered with Drive Electric Vermont to celebrate National PlugIn Day by encouraging Vermonters to learn more about the electric vehicles in their showrooms. To help promote the celebration, Gov.Peter Shumlin (D) declared Sept. 22-23 as Vermont Plug In Weekend. Alderman’s Chevrolet in Rutland was a local partner in the event, offering free test rides—no hassle, no pressure—of the all-electric 2012 Chevy Volt. Karen Glitman, director of transportation efficiency at the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, said that electric vehicles are already registered in more than 50 Vermont communities, including Rutland. “The goal of Vermont Plug In Weekend is to partner with local car dealerships to get the word out about the current availability of electric vehicles in Vermont, and encourage consumers to explore them as an option,” Glitman said. “Transitioning our transportation system away from its dependence on gasoline will have an enormous impact on our economy helping to keep more dollars local, rather than sending them overseas.”

The facility has remained vacant since that time. Vandals have shattered many of the structure’s exterior windows. The front portion of the unique, “mid-century” style, ceramic tile-lined industrial building, which may be renovated for new mixed uses, is currently being marketed to potential buyers by former Rutland attorney John Ruggiero.

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY — Revered by millions of Buddhists and non Buddhists alike, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, 77, is scheduled to visit Middlebury College Oct. 12-13. The unprecedented high-level visit to Middlebury has prompted tighter than normal security and guest restriction. And the holy man’s appearances on campus will not be free. In advance of next month’s visit, the campus is holding several public events to commemorate the historic visit. The first event to preceed the Dalai Lama’s visit was the Sept. 12 screening of the film “Kundun,” directed by Martin Scorsese. Then, on Sept. 20, Professor Cynthia Packert presented a discussion, titled “Portraits of Compassion: Images of Lamas in Tibetan Art”, at McCardell Bicentennial Hall. And this Sunday, Sept. 30, Tenzin Ngawang, a master of Tibetan music and dance, will conduct workshops and perform. Following Ngawang’s sessions, the documentary film “Buddha Prince Backstage” will be screened in Dana Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.. Beginning less than two weeks before the visit, on Oct. 1, Markell Kiefer and Tyson Lien, college alumni and the creative talent associated with the “Buddha Prince Backstage” film, noon to 2 p.m. , will discuss the making of the documentary. Next, on Oct. 5, Religion Professor William Waldron will discusss the role of the Dalai Lama. His “What Is a Dalai Lama and Who is the 14th Dalai Lama? The Buddhist Historical Context” talk starts at 12:15 p.m. in Dana Auditorium. Following Waldron’s talk is a screening of the film, “The Fire Inside: Place, Passion and Primacy of Nature”, co-produced by Rebecca Kneale Gould, associate professor of religion. The screening will be at 7 p.m. in Room 229 of the Axinn Campus Center. “The public events related to the Dalai Lama’s visits are free and open to the public. Some events require pre-reg-

istration as noted above,” according to Sarah Ray, college spokesperson. “The actual appearances of the Dalai Lama at Middlebury are not free of charge. Tickets for the public will be available online and at both box offices (in McCullough and at the Mahaney Center for the Arts), though the best chance for tickets is through online sales.” For the Dalai Lama’s appearances, there is a limit of two tickets per person: $20 each for the public, $15 each for Middlebury College alumni, faculty, staff, students, and parents of current undergraduate students.

Pure Water from page 1 is an affirmation of the importance of our work and I hope it helps bring further recognition to the challenges so many communities face,” according to Carolyn Crowley Meub, executive director of Pure Water for the World. Meub’s guiding hand helped create international awareness of the non-profit organization in recent years. She brought her skills and talents—from a successful career in public relations, special events and management, including local political campaigns, and fundraising—to bear on the world stage with Pure Water for the World. “Our program emphasizes education as a critical component of any program trying to provide clean, safe drinking water. We also provide hygiene and sanitation education, parasitic treatment and follow-up monitoring,” she said. Pure Water for the World’s introduction of household sand water filters to remote villages, schools and homes in Haiti and Honduras saved thousands of lives. “Where filters are in use, the crying from stomach pains, death, and poor school attendance are a thing of the past,” Meub said. In addition to sand filters, Pure Water is active in bring low-cost solar pasteurization to its clients. It also sets up rainwater harvesting programs. “In Haiti, Pure Water ’s filter factory employees 30 Haitians, many of whom did not have a decent job before,” Meub said.

Here are some tips to winterize your lawn •Aerate the lawn. Soil can be compacted over time, especially in yards that see heavy foot traffic. You can rent an aerator from a lawn supply store so that water and fertilizer can reach the soil. •Fertilize. Now is the time to give the lawn fresh food to overwinter and also replenish the strength of the root system. All summer long the lawn has been depleting the soil of nutrition, but autumn presents a great opportunity to strengthen those roots. Consider a slow-release formula designed for winterizing that will feed the lawn all winter long. •Edge the garden beds. Take advantage of the cooler weather and slow-growing grass to re-edge around flower beds. Even though the grass above the surface of the soil will stop growing, the roots will remain viable and the lawn will still be sending out rhizomes and tillers to produce new grass blades in the spring. These can easily encroach on garden beds. Edge now so you will have less work to do in the spring. •Trim hedges and trees. If there are any overhanging tree branches or shrubbery blocking sunlight from reaching the lawn, cut back these areas once the foliage has thinned. Take advantage of your town's leaf and twig pickup services. •Seed bare patches. Scour the lawn for bare patches and put down some seed in these areas. The cooler weather will enable the seeds to germinate without having to compete with weed growth. Once you have prepared your lawn for the winter you can bring in any lawn tools that need repair and have them set and packed away for the spring.

Every weekend of the last few months you have spent mowing, weeding, edging, and trimming your lawn so that it will look its best. In order to ensure your lawn makes a complete recovery after winter hibernation, you may want to spend the fall taking steps to help your lawn survive the winter months ahead. Winterizing a lawn varies depending on where you live and how harsh a typical winter is. There are certain key tasks to complete before you can rest for the winter season. •Remove fallen leaves and debris. Leaf cleanup is among the tasks homeowners dread the most. Raking leaves can be arduous, but it is well worth the effort. Fallen leaves can smother the grass and lead to dead spots and decay next season. Wait until the majority of the leaves have fallen from the trees before you begin to rake; otherwise, you could find yourself repeating the process throughout the fall. Mulched leaves can be added in small amounts to garden beds to provide rich organic material for next year's crop of flowers. Be sure to pick up any twigs and other debris as well. Additional debris can become up trapped under snow and hinder grass growth when spring arrives. •Cut your lawn short. Unless the season is unseasonably wet and warm, your lawn shouldn't grow too much in October and November. Continue to cut your lawn until there is no visible growth for about two weeks. It pays to give it a short cut before frost arrives so that long piles of dead grass will not smother any new growth in the spring. Also, long grass tends to bend down upon itself, trapping moisture that can lead to fungal diseases like snow mold.

Make the most of your small bathroom

Serving Vermont With Pride For Over 40 Years.

Renovating bathrooms is commonly at the top of home improvement to-do lists. Though some rooms around the house may remain timeless, bathrooms, like kitchens, show their age (and era) much more easily, which could be why homeowners are always on the lookout for new ideas. Although many people may dream about creating a spa-type oasis in their homes, not everyone is lucky enough to have a large bathroom, much less a large budget for a full-scale renovation. Small bathrooms are common, particularly in older homes, but they needn't force homeowners to compromise on style when renovating. Small bathrooms may be a half-bath on a main home level or even a full bath, depending on the home. By thinking creatively, homeowners can maximize their spaces and redo bathrooms in ways that bring out their best assets. •When space is at a premium, it's best to look for fixtures and items that fit with the scale of the bathroom. Although you may want a large vanity and cabinet in which to hide all of your toiletries, this simply may not be practical -- taking up most of the bathroom real estate. Instead, look for elegant pedestal sinks that have a much smaller profile. They'll also help you control the clutter in the bathroom because there won't be anywhere to hide it. •Use optical illusions to make the bathroom appear more roomy. For example, lay tile diagonally to create the impression of space. A large mirror will reflect the room back and make it appear much larger than it really is. •Select lighter hues in paint colors and accessories. Dark paints and fixtures could make the room feel cramped. Dark colors are generally used to make spaces feel more cozy. In a small bathroom, it may make the space feel claustrophobic. Instead, think light and bright and the room will instantly feel more airy. •Minimize wall hangings and keep fixtures smaller. Filling the walls with knickknacks may contribute to clutter and make the space appear closed in. Use decorative items sparingly. •If possible, store towels in a closet outside of the bathroom. This way you won't have to devote space inside the bathroom to a closet, leaving more room for other things. •While some people like the thought of a separate bath and shower, in smaller bathrooms this may not be possible. Instead, look for a combined shower and bath, or select a walk-in shower with a much smaller profile. •Windows are often welcome in bathrooms because of the ventilation they provide, but they could be a hindrance in smaller bathrooms because they take up prime wall space. Cover a window in a shower stall to free up space. Just be sure to install a venting fan to reduce moisture in the bathroom. •Maximize wall space if you need storage. Find cabinets that will fit beneath windows or be able to fit in thin areas between sinks and toilets. Over the toilet is prime area for cabinetry. •Consider a frameless shower. This is a partitioned area of the bathroom that's From construction to completion, depend on the experts at Blue Flame set aside for the shower and Gas to manage the installation of your above or underground tank, is typically only cordoned off along with safe and reliable propane service.

Home offices in tight spaces While some people have entire rooms available to house a home office, others have to make do with less space, and that can mean fitting an office into a tight space. The first step in establishing a small home office is figuring out the space you have and any limitations that may accompany it. For example, maybe you have an unused corner in the living room but don't want to have wires and equipment out in the open. An armoire-type desk that can be closed when not in use is a viable option in such a situation. Perhaps there is an unused closet in a bedroom. A wall-mounted desk surface, such as a piece of custom-cut countertop material, complete with foldaway mouse and keyboard tray can easily turn the space into a compact nook. Maybe there is an entryway with a small table that would be large enough for a laptop. A stool or ottoman that can be tucked under it can serve as a desk chair and extra seating.

How to save on home improvement projects

* Avoid the DIY movement if you don't have adequate experience. Many homeowners fall into the DIY trap, feeling they can pull off a project without hiring a professional contractor. While this is an option for those homeowners with home improvement experience, it's an approach that's best avoided by those without such experience. Homeowners who decide to go it alone on a home improvement project should know that mistakes are costly. One mistake could have you paying for the same materials twice: once when you begin the project, and then again when you need to hire a contractor after your efforts didn't work out. A failed DIY project also costs you time, something homeowners hoping to sell their homes post-project cannot afford to waste. * Hire the right contractor. The best contractor for the job won't necessarily be the one who comes in with the lowest estimate. The right contractor will know how long a project will take and what the materials will cost. The wrong contractor, who might lack the experience of his competitors, might make empty promises that ultimately cost you more money via overrun costs. Find a contractor who comes highly recommended and is willing to provide references and show you his or her past projects like the one you're hiring him or her undertake. If you hire the wrong contractor, the project may never be completed and you may find yourself in court, where the money you had budgeted for home improvements is being spent

home improvement industry, there are still plenty of homeowners looking to improve their homes. Savvy homeowners can do just that and save some money along the way by putting a few strategies to work for them.

32326

With the economy still struggling, money is tight for many homeowners. That reality can present a problem to those who want to improve their homes without spending too much money. The cost of a home improvement project depends on a host of factors, including the scale of the project and the availability of materials. Upscale projects like a full roof replacement will set homeowners back a substantial amount of money. In its 2011-2012 "Cost vs. Value Report," Remodeling magazine revealed that the average cost of a such a project was nearly $38,000. However, a smaller project like a garage door replacement could be completed for fewer than $3,000. When deciding if a home improvement project is within your budget, it's a good idea to consult such figures before choosing a project. For example, if your home is a fixer-upper, then one project may not be more urgent than another, something that may allow you to choose less expensive projects now while saving money for more expensive projects down the road. It's also important for homeowners to know that figures such as those in the "Cost vs. Value Report" are just averages. Some projects might cost more than the average, while others might come in well under budget. To ensure your project is one of the latter and not the former, consider the following ways to trim costs off your next home improvement project.

on lawyers instead. * Consider supplying your own materials. If you diligently research your project, you should be able to buy the materials yourself, even if you plan on hiring a contractor to do the work. Some contractors mark up the materials as a means of padding the bill. If you research the project and learn about the materials you want to use, you can save a substantial amount of money buying those materials yourself and then hiring a contractor. * Don't overlook recycled materials. Buying recycled materials is another way to reduce home improvement costs. Bathroom fixtures, doors, flooring, and lighting are just a few of the materials that are commonly recycled and resold at a fraction of the cost of new materials. Shop around for stores in your area or peruse the Internet for recycled materials. Homeowners undertaking a replacement project rather than a remodel might even be eligible for tax breaks if they donate their old materials. * Choose projects that provide more bang for your buck. Another way to save is to choose projects that provide a strong return on your investment. The "Cost vs. Value Report" compares the cost of popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale. If money is a motivating factor behind your project, choose a project that will get you the most money back at resale. While the economy has not necessarily been kind to the

Ludlow film venue seeks funds By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com LUDLOW — A Ludlow film venue is seeking to raise funds to improve its screening equipment for public viewings. FOLA, Friends of Ludlow Auditorium, will begin a fund raising campaign to upgrade its video-movie equipment starting this month. The capital improvement drive will focus on the greater Ludlow area. According to Jim Alic and Kevin Kuntz, equipment coordinators for FOLA, the group plans to upgrade the audio speakers used in the auditorium this year. They noted that the current movie projection system somewhat lacks the needed light illumination strength to project the 80 foot distance to the screen on the stage from the balcony. The equipment envisioned to replace the current projector would have at least a 600 lumens powered light which would supply more than enough light to see all of the nuances in any film. FOLA is also interested in replacing the current movie screen with an electronically-controlled screen suspended from the stage ceiling. This would eliminate the need for frequently "tear-downs" of the current screen so that others may use the auditorium's stage. Contributions to the capital fund may be made via FOLA's web site at www.fola.us. Donations may also be mailed to FOLA, c/o 1 Whispering Pines, Ludlow, Vt. 05149.

October 7th-13th ESTABLISH A HOME FIRE SAFETY PLAN highly preventable, and smoke alarms and a home fire safety plan are two precautionary measures everyone should take. Creating an evacuation plan doesn’t have to be complicated. Such a plan can be established in a few minutes and then reinforced through practice every so often to keep everyone fresh on what to do. • Begin by assessing the layout of the home. Figure out the two best exits from the home. • If your home doesn’t have two doors, invest in a fire ladder so that one of the windows can be a point of exit. • Know how to gain access to the exits, including the best path to take to avoid injury. It’s a good idea to consider a few different scenarios. A kitchen adjacent to the upstairs staircase may become engulfed in flames and make exit by way of staircase impossible. Just because you have doors to the outside doesn’t mean they’ll present the

best type of exit. • Sketch out the layout of the home and the escape plan. Smoke can make it difficult to know up from down. Be sure everyone can reach the exits even if vision is obstructed. Try it with your eyes closed. • Check fire alarms routinely, and change batteries at least every year. • Make sure windows can be easily opened if they are an exit point. • Make note of who will be helping children or the elderly out of the home. • Establish a place where the family will meet outdoors. This area should be far enough away from the home so that everyone will be safe from smoke, flames and falling debris. Fires may ignite fuel explosions, so be sure the meeting spot is a good deal away. • Children should be instructed to run to the meeting spot immediately without waiting behind for anyone to catch up. No one

should reenter the home after arriving at the meeting spot. • Do a few practice runs so that everyone will be accustomed to getting out quickly. • While in most cases it is better to escape and let the fire department extinguish a fire, in the event of a small fire, occupants may be able to stanch it with a personal fire extinguisher. Follow the acronym PASS to properly put out the fire. – PULL the pin in the extinguisher. – AIM the nozzle or hose at the base of the flames. – SQUEEZE the trigger. – SWEEP the foam across the fire base; do not just aim in one place. Fire safety is very important. In conjunction with smoke alarms, a fire safety plan can help everyone get out alive.

People rely on fire and smoke detectors to help keep them safe in their homes. Though fire and smoke alarms are effective, a firm fire safety plan that will keep everyone calm should a fire occur could make the difference between life and death. The U.S. Fire Administration says that more than 3,500 Americans die each year in fires, while roughly 18,300 more men, women and children are injured each year. Cooking accounts for the greatest percentage of residential fires, followed by arson. Dryer vent fires are also a big concern. FEMA says that smoke, rather than the fire’s flames, is responsible for 75 percent of all deaths by fire. In addition to physical injury and material damage, fires can cause a host of problems. Psychological distress, monetary damages and loss of pets may come with fires. Loss of irreplaceable personal items is also a concern. Although fires can be devastating, they’re also

Steve Costello, GMP's vice president for generation and energy innovation, said the parcel will become the home of new Energy Innovation Center, “a place where the company can work with other energy providers and customers to develop new customer programs and choices and learn from a collaborative approach to solving today's energy challenges. Our analysis shows this site to be the least-cost option, and it will serve us and our customers extremely well."” GMP executives joined Rutland city officials at a special news conference, held in the Rutland Opera house, announcing the plans Sept. 21. “I am so pleased that we have secured the former Eastman's property, which was once a cornerstone of downtown but in recent years has weighed heavily on it," said GMP President and CEO Mary Powell. “We will create a place

where customers can learn about energy, generation and the environmental impact of energy decisions, cutting-edge technologies and new customer programs. The center will help our customers envision a new world of energy choices.” Powell, who was recently dubbed Vermont’s “Green Queen” in a business magazine, seemed to relish the new title. Powell said the center will act as a catalyst to transform Rutland into a Solar City, the solar-power capital of New England, if not the northeast. The roof will include a heat pump system and solar, and will be accessible for tours, according to Louras. The foreign-owned utility, which absorbed the former CVPS, expects to finalize architectural work soon; the new facility will be completed a year from now. Powell also said that the new energy center ’s staff will reside in the opera house starting in November and until the Eastman site is ready.
