Brady named to VAB Hall of Fame Slate Valley helps Nov. 6 Mark Brady of Middlebury, general manager of New Market Press newspapers, publisher of the Addison Eagle and the Green Mountain Outlook, has been selected for induction into the Vermont Association of Broadcasters’ Hall of Fame. Brady served as program director of radio station WJOY during the early 1970s under the late Frank Balch. At the time, he dreamed of owning his own radio station and later purchased WFAD-AM in Middlebury; he added WCVM-FM to his broadcasting company. Brady’s stations were community oriented with an emphasis on local news. Brady gave a start to a number of broadcasters including Jim Douglas, Chris Graff, Frank Sesno, Steve Pelkey, Ken Gilbert, Ed Johnson, among others. Only Douglas made a career change and went on to serve as a multi-term governor of Vermont. Brady served three years as president of the VAB. The first Red Sox Jimmy Fund radiothon was held at WFAD; it is now a New England-wide event. Brady created the popular “Grand Prize” $1,000 treasure hunt on local radio and it is now an annual event, sponsored by the Eagle newspaper. Brady made the crossover to newspaper management in 2000. In addition to Brady’s award, Jack Donovan of WDEV AM/FM in Waterbury was also inducted into the hall of fame and distinguished service awards will be presented to WCAX-TV chief news photographer Jim Oliver and WPTZ-TV meteorologist Tom Messner.

Slate Valley Community Connection is gearing up for its Fall Service Day on Saturday, Nov. 6. Students from Green Mountain College, Castleton State College, and community members from various local organizations will reach out with large scale projects throughout the region to benefit seniors, youth, food projects, and the environment. The goal of the day is to complete the projects at each site for the benefit of the community as a whole.

Massage therapists seek state regulation Many citizens in Vermont assume that we have state laws to govern massage therapy. These folks will be surprised to learn that, while their personal therapist is no doubt excellent, poorly trained or unskilled practitioners in our state pose the risk of potentially harming clients. State licensure will allow for agency oversight of massage professionals. Without state licensure there is no avenue for the public to file a complaint when there is a problem. In light of this situation, independent massage therapists and members of the Vermont Chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA-Vt.), have networked with many other interested professionals to seek state licensure for the massage therapy ...Turn to page 9 to read more on Massage

Who is more likely to be adopted – a black lab mix or a yellow lab mix? A black cat or a calico cat? Unfortunately black dogs and cats are least likely to be adopted from shelters. Why? No one truly knows but it is the same across the country. Eighteen of our 59 cats and kittens are black or black and white and keep getting passed over by most adopters. So, it is time for a black cat special in time for after Halloween. Nov. 1–15 all black cats and kittens are 1/3 off regular adoption fee. This is not to de-value these amazing companions, simply a ploy to hopefully find them homes along with all the others! Lovely Luna is a three-year-old sweet female who has been with us for several months. She is a perfect companion and gets along with the other dozen cats in her community room. Room in your home and heart for a black cat or two? If not how about yellow tiger, grey tiger. Our next low cost S/N Clinic will be Dec. 7 in Springfield. They fill fast so reserve your space now by calling 802-885-2174. The next one will be in February. Have a hard to gift person on your list for birthdays, anniversaries, or any holiday? We have nice gift cards so you can make a donation to us in their name! One size fits all. Stop by the Shelter to get yours or call Tom 802-885-2174 to have one or more sent your way. We really need canned cat food (not kind with gravy) and paper towels. Also sealable plastic totes and dryer sheets.

3 year old. Neutered Male. Labrador Retriever mix. I am a chunky fella who will do anything for a belly rub. I’m usually in a big hurry to check out my environment so it may take you a while to see the softer side of me. I’m a big, strong guy and I’m hoping for an active home where I can run and play. . . I do play FETCH and I know SIT and DOWN.

GINGER 6 month old. Spayed Female. German Shepherd mix. I am a pretty little girl who has been allowed to have her own way for WAY too long. Not to bore you with a lot of science, but puppies need active exposure to new things and people and they need to have regular handling and plenty of guidance about what our teeth are and aren’t for . ..well, I haven’t had any of that and I am on the verge of adulthood so I’m really looking for someone to help me make up lost time.

BEEZER 1 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Medium Hair Dilute Tortoiseshell. What a sweet heart I can be well as long as I am the only kitty in the house. I want to be boss and the only boss of my new home. I came to the shelter as a stray on September 17 and after a short stay here at the shelter I am ready to move on. As you can see I have remarkable coloring and because of my long hair I will need regular brushing to keep me looking my best.

FEOWNA 2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair White. I think that you would agree that I am a very stunning girl with my beautiful white hair and blue eyes. I have a great personality and want a forever home this time around. I am a gal with a lot of stories to tell of my adventures outside and I really hope my new family will insist that I stay inside only. I came to the shelter as a stray on September 1 and during my stay here at the shelter I realize that having another kitty as a roommate is great fun.

The Wejuk Files: In search of Bigfoot By Lou Varricchio Part 4: A group of amateur researchers are searching the north woods of Vermont and New York for a strange creature long thought to be extinct—known in folklore as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. In the North Country of New York, New England and Quebec, the creature is known by its regional Indian name, correctly spelled Wejuk (wee-juck)—not “Wejua” as it has appeared. Bigfoot or Wejuk sightings are the focus of the Northern Sasquatch Research Society based in Hudson Falls, N.Y. Its members include Frank Siecienski of Hubbardton, Brian Gosselin of Whitehall, Cliff South of South Glens Falls, and John Pearson and Bill Brann of Glens Falls. Former Whitehall police officer Brian Gosselin was an eyewitness to a now famous August 1976 Wejuk incident on Abair Road in Hampton, N.Y., near the Vermont state line, across from Fair Haven. Gosselin has been featured on several television documentaries about Bigfoot or Wejuk. We continue our multi-part interview with Gosselin and fellow NSRS researchers about Bigfoot sightings in our region: L.V. Bigfoot and Yeti researchers around the word know you, Brian Gosselin. You were an eyewitness to a possible Wejuk event that occurred back in August 1976 in the Whitehall, N.Y. area. Can you please resume where we left off last week, in part 3 of the Wejua Files? Gosselin: Here’s what I recall: The thing was always standing on two legs. And it walked fast. People have asked me if it had a neck. I don’t remember a neck. I remember turning on the spotlight and seeing those big red eyes and the hands that came up (to cover the face).

Evergreen season care By Charlie Nardozzi, Horticulturist and & Leonard Perry, UVM Extension Horticulturist Helping evergreen trees and shrubs prepare for winter, wrapping trunks of young trees, and getting tools ready for winter are some of the gardening activities for this month. Evergreens continue to respire (that is, lose moisture albeit slowly) during the winter, so make sure they have a good deep watering before the ground freezes. It’s best to water them well for several weeks, if there aren’t deep and long rains. Protect young plants from wind damage during winter by wrapping them in burlap or with wooden protectors on the windward side. Wrap the trunks with tree wrap or use white plastic protectors to prevent sunscald and frost cracking on young, thinbarked trees, such as maples. These materials will reflect the warming rays of the sun so the tree bark doesn't heat up on winter days, only to be suddenly cooled when the sun sets and the temperatures plummet. The plastic protectors also prevent rodents from gnawing on the trunks. Or, you can wrap the trunks with wire mesh. Take some time this fall to get your mower and other power equipment ready for storage. Wipe off any dirt and debris, especially loose wet grass that may have accumulated on the deck or caked underneath it. This can rust the deck over winter, shortening the life of the mower body. If reaching under the deck, make sure to disconnect the spark plug first so the engine has no chance of starting. Then you can store with the fuel tank empty or full. If storing with fuel, add a stabilizer, then run the machine for about 10 minutes. Store mowers in a dry

L.V.: Did you make out any facial features? Gosselin: No, because its hands were up (in front of the face). You could see the hair on its head was long; heavy, coarse hair. I estimated its height as between 7.5 and 8 feet. Maybe it weighed 400 pounds. It covered 1,000 to 1,500 feet toward the woods quickly— then it turned around and howled three times (and disappeared into the woods). Following that I sat there for a good 15-20 minutes trying to collect my—well, collect everything you could possibly think of! It was an experience that you’d have to be there to understand. To this day, I have never said it was Bigfoot or Sasquatch. All I know is that it was not a bear and it was not a man in a monkey suit. Whatever it was, it was strange. L.V. Was it an ape? Gosselin: No, it was not an ape and it was not a bear. L.V.: Did you ever feel your life threatened? Gosselin: No. If it wanted me, it had me. But if it had moved any closer, I would have shot it—taken it in the head, the neck. But the thing of it is that between where the trooper was located and where I was located, it could have crossed the road, but it came toward me out of curiosity. L.V.: Did you sense it was a beast or intelligent? Gosselin: It was both. L.V.: Was it humanlike? Yes, in the way it walked. But a beast, too. It is something that doesn’t belong here. It was not a gorilla; it was not a chimpanzee; it was not a bear. A bear’s legs are too short to walk the way we walk, etc. L.V.: What happened next? Gosselin: I went back to Whitehall. And who do you think I found shaking like a leaf at the Silver Diner in Whitehall? It was Jeff, the New York State Police trooper. When I saw him, I said: “What the hell was that all about—leaving me out there all by myself?” Well, he was drinking coffee and shaking. So I asked him:

“What exactly did you see, Jeff?” He replied: “I didn’t see anything.” L.V.: You mean the trooper denied that the encounter ever happened? Gosselin: After that happened my job was threatened. “Keep your mouth shut,” I was told. Later, I threw news reporters out of my house. They were busting my chops about it. L.V.: Did you ever return to the Abair Road encounter site out of curiosity? Gosselin: Yes. Sometime later, my nephew Greg Gosselin and I returned to the scene. We walked from the paved road through the field and into the woods to an old, abandoned road near the Poultney River. There’s a lot of clay and sand back there. Near the river bank, I found a footprint covered with pine needles. Finding that footprint was a coincidence. The toe impressions were perfect; even the heel mark was good. For a human to make that impression you’d have to jump up and down several times. And (judging from the orientation of the footprint), it must have crossed to river (into Vermont). L.V.: Did anyone else hear or see things around Abair Road? Gosselin: There are people that live near the river in that area on the Vermont side—I do not have permission to mention their names. A T.V. movie made about the incident was filmed there. At the time of the film shooting, the residents told me that there are many things that they have seen and heard along the Poultney River. It’s the boonies back there—thickets, swamps; it’s just like the Amazon in there. To be continued.

location, or if outdoors, wrap in a waterproof tarp. After their dry summer rest period, watch for signs of shoot growth on amaryllis. That signals it's time to pot them up, or if already potted to resume watering. Use a pot only slightly larger than the bulb diameter. Set a bulb into moistened potting mix so onehalf to one-third of the bulb protrudes above the soil. Place the pot in a warm well-lit spot, and don't water it again until the first leaf or flower shoot starts to grow. Protect the soil of your empty vegetable bed and keep out wayward weed seeds by covering the beds with leaves or straw. Avoid weedy hay as this only introduces millions of weed seeds. This surface organic matter also can encourage beneficial earthworm activity.

There's a window of opportunity for mulching because you want to wait until the ground freezes so you don't give rodents a hiding place too soon, but if you don't mulch before the snow accumulates, it won't get done. If we could rely on constant snow cover, mulching would be less necessary, but in the absence of that protection, we need to provide a winter blanket. Some plants such as coral bells, delphiniums, oriental poppies, iris, violas, and sedum are better off without any mulch, especially in winter, when it can compact and encourage crown rot. Before snow flies and the ground freezes, November is your last chance to plant garlic bulbs, to dig gladiolus to store indoors over winter, and to plant fall bulbs. If you don’t get your spring-blooming bulbs planted, pot them, then store indoors in a cool place (40 degrees is ideal, as in a spare refrigerator or cold root cellar), just don’t let them freeze. Then, anytime after 12 weeks you can bring into warmth indoors to force into bloom.

Check It Out: If you’ve seen Bigfoot or Wejuk in your area, have something unusual to report, or are simply interested in learning more about Wejuk research in Vermont and New York, contact Bill Brann of NSRS at or call 518-747-9134. All sighting information is kept strictly confidential.

A quick change of plans—on to the Moon


win NASA robot spacecraft that were mothballed in orbit just one year ago are now on their way to the Moon. In an unusual, creative move—that has transformed two of a former five-member near-Earth satellite fleet into lunar explorers— NASA has dusted off a defunct geomagnetic mission that still has plenty of cryogenic fuel to burn with lots of solar energy to power onboard batteries. By Lou Varricchio The former THEMIS P1 and P2, which have been called 'dead spacecraft walking,' by Vassilis Angelopoulos of UCLA and principal investigator, are now called ARTEMIS P1 and P2, the Greek goddess of the Moon. The new mission acronym stands for Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics of the Moon’s Interaction with the Sun. "Not so long ago, we thought they were goners. Now they are beginning a whole new adventure," Angelopoulos said. “The story began in 2007 when NASA launched a fleet of five spacecraft into Earth's magnetosphere to study the physics of geomagnetic storms. Collectively, they were called THEMIS, short for Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms. P1 and P2 were the outermost members of the quintet.” THEMIS findings in 2008 allowed researchers to solve several longstanding mysteries of the Northern Lights. "The two spacecraft were running out of power and freezing to death," Angelopoulos told reporters at a NASA news conference. "We had to do something to save them. The team brainstormed a solution: Because the mission had gone so well, the spacecraft still had an ample supply of fuel—enough to go to the Moon. We could do some great science from lunar orbit. NASA approved our trip plans… P1 and P2 headed away from the shadows of Earth.” The reborn THEMIS to ARTEMIS mission is now underway; it’s first task is to investigate the Moon's mysterious plasma cavity. Much like a turbulent wake left behind by a Jetski pilot hot-dogging across a tranquil mountain lake, the Moon’s plasma wake is formed by the solar wind, but we don’t understand much about how it is agitated by our natural satellite. The Moon passes through this stream of energetic stellar particles stirring up a hornet’s nest of particles in its wake. When they arrives near the Moon, the ARTEMIS probes will check out Earth's magneto-tail and see how it impacts the Moon— literally. So, within a few weeks, NASA mission planners will begin to skillfully move the ARTEMIS twins to within 100 km of the lunar surface. There, both spacecraft will observe how the solar wind batters the Moon’s bleak surface. There’s not much of a lunar magnetic field to speak of; unlike on Earth, there’s nothing to protect the Moon’s surface. A better understanding of what’s going on will help future lunarbound astronauts. Note: Special thanks to NASA’s Dr. Tony Phillips and Holly Zell for providing Seeing Stars with background details about the new ARTEMIS mission. What’s in the Sky: On Saturday, Nov. 6, Vega is the brightest star high in the west. The brightest star above Vega is Deneb, the peak of the Northern Cross in the constellation Cygnus. Note: Clocks "fall back" one hour from daylight-savings to standard-time at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.

Halloween is kid’s stuff H

alloween doesn’t register highly with me. It never did mean much to me. I saw through this autumnal “holiday” at age 10. I knew it was an event manufactured to make money. Today, Halloween promotes ghouls and bad nutrition. Littler fellers dress up like maulers and little girls dress up like—well, pop-star floozies (at least the little girls that don’t dress like bunnies). I quit trick-or-treating after age 10. Neither had I gotten a load of sour candy or stale chocolate nor was I scared off by razor blades in an apple (I noticed the razor’s handle sticking out just before I bit in). I just quit trick-or-treating. Cold turkey. As a kid, I wasn’t interested in— Walking around Vermont in 20-degree weather in a thin costume, freezing and overheating simultaneously, wearing a plastic mask with brittle sharp edges held to my face with a rubberband that dug into my cheek bones while some old smelly lady—who gave me raisins and pennies—lifted the mask so she could, and I quote from memory, “see the cute little mug hidden behind there”, and the rubberband connected to the mask by tiny silver metal things on each end that would tangle up within your hair when the smelly old lady lifted the mask to see your flushed mug, and to get it untangled you’d have to remove the mask, and the rubber band with the tiny silver metal things at the ends pulled your hair out, which hurt like a raving bitch, and when the smelly old lady helped she made it worse, she yanked and you squealed and she startled which made her more determined to untangled the mask, and you felt her smelly old lady strength which a nine year old shouldn’t ever feel because no nine year old should ever know smelly old ladies are strong as miners. Oh, and when you got the mask untangled you put it back on, and it was cold with sweat; it would slip and slide against your sticky skin and your breath ricocheted off the brittle sharp edges of the mouth part of the mask and into your nostrils beading up and dripping back down onto your lips—and it didn’t even taste good and salty, it tasted plasticky. And when I was a kid you were supposed to cart around with you a little orange donation box for the UNICEF agency; and when you’d say “trick-or-treat!” you were told to add “...for Unicef” at the tail end, but I never did. I didn’t even ever bring the box along ‘cause I didn’t feel so guilty about getting free candy that I should have to solicit to help needy kids I didn’t have any connection to whatsoever. “Trick-or-treat for UNICEF, trick-or-treat for UNICEF”—yeah, then bring the little orange box home, dump the loose coins on

your bedroom floor, gather it, go to town and buy more candy (hey, all you bratty little kids who grew up to be liberals? You must think you’re helping poor and sick people anytime you pledge money to NPR, right?). Why did I need to trick-ortreat? I could have had candy anytime I wanted it. At age 10, retired from trick-or-treating, I doled out candy to my peers—at leats those who swung by my house on Halloween night. “Rusty?,” a girl once called out, her voice muffled behind a dime-store Wonder Women mask. “Yeah?”, I answered, my voice undeterred. “Wh—what are you doing?” “Giving Wonder Woman, a kid in a sheet, G. I. Joe, and I don’t know what the heck Julie is dressed as, and who’s that behind the Liberace mask—oh yeah, Steve, I should have known—and Steve, candy. Why, what are you doing?” “We’re trick-or-treating,” she answered, not realizing I was being facetious. She placed her hand on the mask, grasped it, pulled it forward an inch, and lifted it up to the crown of her forehead. Holding the mask still, and away from her face, she asked, “You don’t trickor-treat anymore?” “Nope.” I dropped Tootsie Rolls, candy corn, and lollypops into the bags of my friends; I felt as embarrassed for them as they were for me. “See ya,” I yelled, as they left tittering down the stairs of my parent’s deck. In the midst of a chorus of “see yas,” I overheard Wonder Women confiding to Julie: “I’m not going to the prom with him when we get old enough.” As I shut the door I thought to myself: “Good, I won’t be going to the prom anyway.” And I didn’t.

My school bus was a Schwinn L

ike Will Rogers, most of what I know is what I’ve read in the newspapers. Thus, I know that Vermont’s education commissioner wants to cut public education spending by –gasp!—2 percent or $23 million. The commissioner has ever so cautiously suggested that Vermont’s schools, with lowest-in-the-nation pupil/teacher ratios (and the smallest class sizes as well as lowest-in-the-nation pupilstaff ratios that approach cruiseship passenger-crew proportions) be modestly adjusted upwards. With a little math previously recited here, it works out to a seat or two in a class of 11. The usual suspects have responded in the usual ways with Rutland Superintendent Mary Moran claiming her schools are “excellent” and a former Rutland Northeast superintendent lauding the “very high achievement” of the state’s schools and students—both in blithe dismissal of grim reality— the NAEP test score results for Vermont. About two-thirds of Vermont’s young charges can’t function at grade level in math and reading and therefore can’t be labeled ”proficient”. The howls of denial and protest have reverberated under Vermont’s Golden Dome and I’d wager that staffing reductions to capture the budgetary $23 million cost-savings—in one of fastest-in-the-nation enrollment decline environment—just ain’t gonna happen. Quite the opposite: the latest argument for pre-K is that the new staffers’ paychecks serve as an economic stimulus to the larger economy—at a ratio of $1 invested for $7 in multiplier-effect. Progressive economist Lord Maynard Keynes would have been proud of this innovative math. Here’s an alternative to consider: Student transportation expenses vary substantially from one Vermont district to another; the state education department chooses not to publish statewide data, lest the data be subject to undesired outside analysis; however, we have some not-too-stale data from the 2008 National Digest of Educational Statistics, Table 177, for the 2005-6 school year, when Vermont—the second smallest state population-wise—spent $40.5 million on school bussing. For the previous year, it worked out to $393 per pupil, enrollment 98.4K. Wyoming, the smallest state, spent $42.1 million, $450 per pupil, enrollment 84.7K. Apologists for Vermont’s bussing costs typically argue rural dispersion, even though they well know that its mere 9,614 square miles are approximately 10 percent of vast Wyoming’s 97,814 square miles, across which it transports about 10 percent fewer young riders and covers ten times as much area at a percapita cost only about 15 percent higher. In my own pre-K experience, which started just about when the Thomas Company began building the school buses I never rode, no school district ever spent a nickel to get me there or back. Before this newspaper is drowned in reader protest, let me explain that I don’t propose here that all 21st-century Vermont school kids be “abused” as we 20th-century kids were—that is, forced to traipse through miles of knee-deep snow to and from school—but I propose only that the missing $23 million be taken from the $40.5 bussing budget; it’s probably near $46million by now, so my cut would be into halves) by requiring the nearest-

to-school 50 percent of enrollment to get there and back as we did: private enterprise. I didn’t even always have a Schwinn bicycle. My earliest recollection of the primary grades was riding to school in a Ford two-seater automobile with a rumble seat (forbidden to us kids) who both occupied the passenger seat while the designated mother drove. By fifth grade, I had my first Schwinn. It was an unearned gift. My fellow passengers were similarly gifted, as were the several moms who thereby escaped the chauffeur roster. By ninth grade I had my second and larger one. It was earned with profit from preschool newspaper delivery. By our high school years, a few upperclassmen, ‘way above us in socio-economic status, drove— wow!—their own cars. The same public education spending defenders who can’t (won’t?) grasp that Wyoming is 10 times larger geographically than Vermont similarly can’t (won’t?) grasp that, contrary to their pious child-safety protestations, American roads are almost four times safer now than they were for vehicles, and presumably, bikes. Available data from the feds show 1957 highway deaths at 5.98 per 100,000 miles; 1997 deaths were down to 1.64. A non-measurable variable, comparing then to now: what about all these costly bike paths and bike bridges Vermont taxpayers have been pouring money into? Are they purely for the imported water bottleon-hip recreational class, and off-limits to the coaster-brake lower-SES level of cyclists with books in the basket and an actual useful destination in mind? Like Illinois Rep. (and Sen.) Ev Dirksen, who famously appreciated that money is scaleable (“a billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re into real money”), I readily concede that $23 million ain’t much out of a $1.2 billion public education budget. (as the mathematically-proficient ed commissioner has proven, it’s 2 percent (don’t test 59 percent of your eighth graders on this long division/percentage exercise; they’ll score as non-proficient, per 2008 NDES, Table 131) but even at a mere 2 percent it’s a marker of sorts, a line in the sand to be crossed (frugal Vermonters, both remaining examples) or defended (educational paycheck receivers, multitudes). Is it a violation of the Eighth Amendment for school kids to bicycle to school? Or would it be verboten to cut a few bus drivers for the same pro-budget vote calculus that forbids cutting a few teachers by raising class sizes modestly? Parenthetically, I’d ask, is it the same calculus as lies concealed behind the push for universal pre-K, which would add both staffing costs and the votes to help push the staff expansion through? I’m ‘jes askin’; if it discomfits (a little archaic Middle English lingo, there) you, consider it a rhetorical inquiry only. Retired Vermont architect Martin Harris observes Green Mountain State politics from a safe distance—Tennessee.

Chili Cook-Off was a community event


TIME CAPSULE — A Brandon poster announces a reception for U.S. Sen. Stephen Douglas of Illinois on July 25, 1860 in the Rutland County town. Douglas was nominated for president at the Democrat Convention in June 1860. He was campaigning in New England when he decided to make a special trip to his hometown—Brandon, Vt. Douglas was born in Brandon in 1813. He died shortly after the 1860 election which was won by Republican Abraham Lincoln. Poster courtesy of the Brandon Museum at the Stephen Douglas Birthplace

Costello awarded by ARC Gift-of-Life Marathon Blood Drive organizer Steve Costello was presented the 2010 American Red Cross Presidential Award for Excellence today at a Washington ceremony. The Presidential Award for Excellence is presented annually to employees and volunteers. Costello has been a volunteer blood drive sponsor for 10 years at Central Vermont Public Service, and conceived and co-organizes the Gift-of-Life Marathon, the largest one-day blood drive in northern New England. The annual drive twice set New England records, most recently collecting 1,024 pints in December 2009, though Boston recently retook the record with a 1,177-unit drive Sept. 11. Costello and event cosponsor WJJR hope to reclaim the record this winter.

ATV club receives award Birdseye Mountain ATV Club received an award during its Last Hoorah end of season foliage ride. The award was presented by Tony Morgan director of the West Rutland Food Shelf. BMAC collects non-perishables at each monthly meeting and all events/rides when the rides are held at the BMAC Trail Head in Ira. What riders gave at the "Last Hoorah" will help stock the food shelf for a buffer of the winter season. We thank all that contributed food and money. The remains of the desert table and the unpopped ballons filled with candy and gum went to the food shelf. With the holidays and winter season approaching, BMAC members urge local residents to consider donating to the local food shelf.

hank you to for the cover story about the recent Ludlow Rotary Chili Cook-Off. To maximize our fundraising effort, we rely heavily on press in newspapers like the Green Mountain Outlook. This year's 20th annual Cook-Off was our best in recent years, serving more than 400 people and raising $3,000 for the Black River Valley Senior Center and Ludlow Rotary Club projects. Harris Family Chili served by father-daughter team Tom and Christy Harris won the People's Choice award with 56 votes. Los Fearmanos by Ian Bruso and John Foreman took second with 52 votes and Ghost Pepper Chili by Chris Saylor finished third with 40 votes at the Oct. 9 event. The Judges Choice "Favorite" plaque went to the Gill Odd Fellows Home Chili by Leslie Cameron. Saylor's Ghost Pepper Chili got the judges nod for "Spiciest" and Vermont State Rep. candidate Brigid Faenza's Candidate Chili garnered the "Team Spirit" award. Judges' honorable mentions went to Bruso-Forman for "2nd Favorite" and The Ludlow Rotary Interact Club received honorable mention for "Team Spirit." Kudos to Ludlow's Depot Street merchants for allowing our street closure. Perhaps afterwards chili-satiated pedestrians spent a few moments patronizing your establishments and other Main Street shops. Founded in 1990 by Rotarian Stephen Birge, who judged this year's event with Sen. Alice Nitka and Vicki Corrao, over the years the Cook-Off has raised more than $30,000 for the Senior Center. Traffic was up with 360 ballots cast. An estimated 75 gallons of chili were served by 19 different cooks. The Cook-Off was sponsored by Black River Produce,

Black River Valley Senior Center, Carl Riedell & Son Plumbing & Heating, Castle Hill Resort & Spa, Chrisandra's Interiors, Clark's Quality Foods, Cota & Cota, Davis Insurance, Ludlow Insurance, Ludlow Shipping & Copy, People's Bank, Shaw's, Spring River Enterprises, The Good Bus, Timber Inn, Tim Faulkner CPA, Tom Harris/UBS Financial Services, Wicked Good Pizza and Wright Construction. Black River Union High School volunteers included seniors Victor Cucullo and Tyler Schaub and Interact Club members Alyssa Collins, Lucy Gagner, Kelsey Rebhan and Newton Rose. Finally, can crowd favorites Tom and Christy Harris do it again? Or will judge's favorite chili specialist Leslie Cameron devote the winter months perfecting her recipe up at the Gill Odd Fellows home, seeking another award to go with People's Choice plaques won in 2008 and 2009? And let's not forget the double barrel recognition this year for Chris Saylor's Ghost Pepper Chili which proved that people and judges alike prefer spicy. The gauntlet has been thrown. Mark your calendar now for Oct. 8, 2011 and the 2011 Ludlow Rotary Chili Cook-Off. Glenn Heitsmith, Ludlow Rotary Club Chili Cook-Off Chairman Ludlow Editor ’s reply: The Outlook is pleased to support the Rotary Club’s community events by providing anews outlet in our fullcolor paper. Conversely, our free newspaper cannot survive without the support of local, paid business advertisers like those involved with the Ludlow Rotary Chili Cook-Off. Your advertising dollars help fund our ability to continue providing free mailings and local distribution of the community news.

Website explores refugee experience in Vermont The Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury unveiled its“New Neighbors: Bosnia,” the first in a series of websites dedicated to the experiences of refugees resettled in Vermont. The goal of the New Neighbors project is to build public awareness and understanding of Vermont’s growing refugee communities, and to bring people together across cultural and linguistic differences in a spirit of mutuality and exchange. “New Neighbor...” presents the stories of people who were uprooted by war in former Yugoslavia and have come to Vermont to start new lives. The site features their reflections on their ancestral homeland, the trauma of war, their experiences as refugees, the resettlement process, Bosnian culture in Vermont, and their perspectives on building new lives here. The website includes research-generated materials from the Vermont Folklife Center Archive, new pieces by filmmaker Mira Niagolova and videographer Paul MacGowan, and photographic images and text created by photographer/ethnographer Ned Castle, as well as an education section and links to online resources. “New Neighbors: Bosnia” was created in partnership with the Vermont Hu-

Westminster, Young to receive awards The Rutland Economic Development Corporation’s annual meeting will be held at 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, Nov. 10, at the Rutland Country Club. The meeting will highlight REDC’s FY 10 Award Winners. Robert Young, president and CEO of Central Vermont Public Service, will receive REDC’s Member of the Year Award. “Bob has led CVPS through periods of innovation and restructuring of the utility industry. Throughout his tenure as president, he has maintained Vermont’s competitiveness by assuring reliable power at the best cost. This region and this state owe Bob the recognition and thanks for his hard work and dedication during his many years at the helm of Central Vermont Public Service,” said Jamie Stewart, REDC executive director. Westminster Cracker Company, Inc.

will receive REDC’s Business Excellence award for job creation. Annually REDC recognizes those companies that have distinguished themselves as significant positive drivers of our regional economy. “At a time in our history when the trend has been workforce reductions and consolidation of operations, Westminster Cracker has been moving in the opposite direction. They are doubling their production capabilities, expanding their workforce, and investing at their Rutland facility in the Howe Scale Center. With almost no turnover in employees, they have made themselves a preferred employer in the region, and a major contributor to our regional economy,” said Stewart. Three service awards will also be presented at the meeting. Scott Dikeman will be presented an award for his

dedicated years of service as board president and member of the REDC Board of Directors. James Goss is being honored for his years of service to REDC as a member of the board in support of the development of the Rutland Area Airport Business Park. Peter Amons will also be awarded as an invaluable volunteer and contributor to the REDC Marketing and Recruitment Committee. Thank you to our meeting sponsors: Berkshire Bank, C2 Consulting, Casella Waste Systems, Inc., Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS), Merchants Bank, GE Aviation, Omya, The Vermont Country Store, and Vermont Electric Power Company (VELCO).

Springfield falls in "Trophy Game" After having won the annual "trophy game" the previous five years, the Springfield High School football team off finished a rough, two-win season by having to surrender the hardware to rival Bellows Falls, after falling to the Terriers 42-24 at Hadley Field in Westminster. Although it was a pretty close game early on, the Bellows Falls' running game would prove too much for a depleted Springfield roster that was down to just 19 healthy players on the roster. By games' end, the Terriers had worn down the Cosmos en route to the 18point victory. "I am really happy for the boys because it has been a while since we've had the trophy, but I am especially happy for our seniors," Bellows Falls coach Bob Lockerby said after the win. However, Springfield got the ball first and started well, feeding senior running back Billy Wheeler a half dozen times en route to three consecutive first downs, but the drive stalled when Cosmos' quarterback (sophomore) J.T. Therrian was flagged for intentional grounding, and then nearly threw an interception, the Cosmos were forced to punt. After a nice punt return from junior Will Bourne, on second down B.F. junior Jeremy Kilburn took a quarterback-keeper down the left side line for a 25-yard gain and a first down inside the Springfield 20-yard line. Four plays later senior running back Ryan Heyward took a hand off down the right sideline 39-yards for a 6-0 lead. Heyward then took the two-point conversion to the left pylon and it was 8-0 halfway through the first quarter. On the next kick off, Cosmos' junior Jake Patoine fumbled and BF senior Cam Howe recovered it inside the Springfield 25-yard line. Two plays later Hayward took a hand off up the middle, bounced it to the outside and just got inside the right pylon for the touchdown. The extra point was blocked, but with just over four minutes left in the quarter and Bellows Falls had a 14-0 lead. The Cosmos came back with a drive of their own, however, converting five consecutive first downs and a first-and goal inside the B.F. 10-yard line. Two plays later Wheeler busted over the goal line and after a Therrian two-point conversion, it was 14-8 with just over a minute left in the quarter. After the kick off and another quarterback-keeper from Kilburn ended the quarter, Springfield caught a break when Heyward fumbled on the first play of the second quarter, giving the Cosmos the ball inside the BF 40-yard line. But after an 11-yard pass completion to Wheeler, the Purple Gang defense smothered QB Therrian on two straight plays to stop the drive. Junior Bruce Wells was especially effective, registering a sack on one play and QB-pressure on another. After a another nice return on the punt from Bourne, Bellows Falls faced a third down just inside the 40-yard line when Kilburn threw

a perfect strike to Bourne down the right sideline for touchdown and a 20-8 lead for BF after a missed two-pointer. But on the next drive, the Terriers helped Springfield sustain a drive with two, costly 15-yard penalties (roughing the passer, unsportsman-like conduct) which gave Springfield a first and goal inside the BF 10-yard line. Billy Wheeler then busted another run over the goal line and after a two-point conversion run from junior Kirk Perham, the BF lead was down to 20-16. With just under three minutes left in the half, the Terriers struck again when Kilburn threw a touchdown pass to Brendan Hackett , and it was 28-16 after a two-point run from Heyward. The Cosmos would try to get the ball downfield before the half, but another sack from the junior Wells and then an interception from Howe gave BF the ball inside the Springfield 30-yard line. Two plays later and with just 7.9 ticks on the clock before half, Kilburn once again hit Bourne for a 33-yard touchdown and a 3416 halftime lead. This appeared to be the knock-out punch for the Terriers, giving them a comfortable 18-point lead leading into the second half. Bellows Falls got the ball first in the second half and immediately drove down the field to set up the next touchdown, another QB-keeper from Kilburn and after a two-pointer conversion from Bourne, it was 42-16 after three quarters. The Cosmos would score another touchdown late in the game when junior Darius Hosten caught a halfback-option pass from Wheeler that covered 44-yards. After a two-pointer by Wheeler, the final score was 42-24. It marked the first win in "The Trophy" game for the Terriers in five years, dating back to former BF coach Bis Bisbee's final year at the helm.

For Bellows Falls and after finishing with a 6-1 division record, the Terriers will host a playoff game next weekend. "Our seniors have had a bitter taste in their mouth over the Springfield game for a few years now, so it is good for them to finally taste victory." For the Cosmos, it was the end of a tough first season under head coach Jack Cohun, but despite low numbers and not much depth, his team played hard until the final whistle. "We have a nice junior class coming back, but we know we have to work on the depth chart,' coach Cohun said after the game. "Some teams would have turned off the faucet, but we didn't. These kids played hard until the end."

By Frederick Pockette The high school fall sports season has ended and the playoffs have began. Many area school teams are busy competing for state titles in their various sports. Below is a recap of how many of those squads fared up to Thursday, my deadline for this edition. So read on and see how your town school is doing in its various sports. In girls soccer both the Otter Valley Otters and Rutland Raiders were knocked out in the opening round, while the Fair Haven Slaters and Proctor Phantoms survived their play down matches and advanced to there divisions quarterfinals this past Saturday. Sam Labate scored twice last Thursday to lead her second seeded Burr and Burton Bulldogs to a 3-0 opening round win over the fifteenth seeded Rutland Raiders in Division-I play down action. Sam Weeks had the other goal for the Bulldogs who advanced to this past Saturday’s quarterfinals with a 12-3 record. The Raiders end their season with a 3-10-2 record. Meanwhile, on the same day in Duxbry, Laura Moore scored a hat trick in the first half, leading her fourth seeded Harwood Highlanders to an easy 5-0 shutout win over the visiting thirteenth seeded Otter Valley Otters. Liza Mackey and Laura Bataille also scored for the Highlanders, who advanced to this past Saturday’s quarterfinals with a 10-4-1 record. In a game completely controlled by Harwood, their goalie Ashley Pitrowiski, needed to make just two saves to get credit for the post season shutout. Erin Trombley made 13 saves in the net for the Otters, who end their season at 2-13. In other Division II action the fourteenth seeded Fair Haven Slaters pulled off a huge opening round upset on Wednesday in Waitsfield. Despite being outshot 28-3 the Slaters managed to pull off a 2-1 win over the third seeded Green Mountain Valley School. Bethany Lanfear and Lexus Hardinan scored for the Saters, but it was goalie Megan Wooster. Wooster truly preserved the win with a twenty save performance. Susan Campbell stopped one shot for Green Mountain who end up 7-3. The Slaters entered the quarterfinal action this past Saturday with just two wins and fourteen losses. On the same day the fourth seeded Proctor Phantoms earned a spot in the Division-IV quarterfinals by defeating thirteenth seeded South Royalton 5-1. Carissa Elrick paced the Phantoms attack with a pair of goals. Mikayla Tanner, Mikayla MCormack and Ashley Cook added single goals for the Phantoms who advanced to the quarters sporting an impressive 12-2-1 record. Sierra Hein had South Royalton’s lone goal. In Division-I boys opening round action on Tuesday, Greg Roy scored in the second half, to lift his fourth seeded Rutland Raiders past the Thirteenth seeded North Country Falcons 1-0. Raider goalie David Cohen preserved the one goal win by making six saves and Rutland entered the quarterfinals at 11-4. Chad Letourneau made ten saves for the Falcons, who end at 4-11.
