CVPS seeks rate increase By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org Central V ermont Public Service has asked the V ermont Public Service Boar d to authorize a 4.8 per cent rate increase under the company’s alternative r egulation plan. If appr oved, the increase would take ef fect on Jan. 1. “We have worked very hard to control operating costs, which ar e virtually flat overall,” CVPS Pr esident and Chief Executive Officer Larry Reilly said. “The rate change is being drive by a variety of factors, which inc lude new power contracts at competitive, yet slightly higher costs, and investments in our system to improve r eliability for customers. Meanwhile, the rate impact was mitigated by a reduction in our allowed return on equity , which will drop from 9.45 to 9.17 percent.” The bill for a r esidential customer who uses 500 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month will rise from $82.26 to $86.22, a dif ference of $3.96. Since 1999, CVPS’s rates have risen at near half the rate of inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index. CVPS is in the pr ocess of selling the company to foreign-owned Gaz Métro, the parent of Gr een Mountain Power, with which CVPS will merge next year , if the transaction receives all necessary r egulatory approvals. Ironically, the rate increase this week comes on the heels of GMP and CVPS officials pr omising to pr ovide $144 million in customer savings in the first 10 years after closing the sale.

Springfield Humane Society We have a LOT of companions waiting for adoption. The poor economy has finally hit us with more and more animals coming our way. Some of them have medical needs that were not being met due to lack of money. Tasha, shown here, is a 6 year old female Shepherd who arrived with lots of fleas and the resultant flea allergy dermatitis. She needs a special diet to keep her skin issues under control. Tasha is one of the sweetest dogs you can imagine; quiet, gentle, loving and loyal. She has been here since July and desperately wants a home to be thankful for. One thing is certain - whoever adopts her will be the lucky one giving many thanks for having her to share the holidays and life. Don’t miss out on the amazing benefits of sharing your life with at least one companion animal. These guys deserve a new home – so help us empty the Shelter for the Holidays! Call the Shelter at 885-3997 or stop by Wed-Sat noon-4:30. Best friends meet at 401 Skitchewaug Trail! The next low cost spay neuter clinic for cats will be December 13 in Springfield. These popular clinics fill fast so call Tom at 885-2174 to reserve a space. Spay/neuter saves lives and suffering. The Shelter needs canned dog food, paper towels, and Q-tips.

Additionally, their behaviors and personalities are usually alr eady established. If you are thinking of adopting an animal, please consider an older one.

Hail and farewell, Café Dale Poultney sandwich shop to close
From Staff Reports
POULTNEY—Café Dale, a sandwich shop l ocated i n t he c enter o f P oultney, recently celebrated its two year anniversary. I stopped in to chat with owner Dale Sullivan about what inspired her to start up her business, and why she does what she does—and why she has decided to close the popular downtown eatery. From Sullivan’s homemade cuisine to her warm, welcoming smile, she r uns a sandwich shop that is mor e than just about feeding hungry customers for lunch and dinner. She has set out to have a place wher e the local community can come and get a slice of heart and home, especially when they ar e far away fr om their own, such as Green Mountain College students. Two years ago, Sullivan was going through a divorce, and a change in jobs. She was on the way to see her attorney when she walked by the building for ent r that would soon become her own new business. She said she saw the ‘for r ent’ sign and just knew. It turns out that her attorney was the one r enting out that particular spot, and things wer e immediately set in motion from there. Sullivan had about three weeks to take a completely empty space and turn it into the sandwich shop that is known and loved in the community today . She worked ar ound the clock to open up; when I asked her wher e sleep fit in, she said, “I sur e did get skinny .” For get sleep—she barely had time to eat while she got her life back on track. Fast forward to now— Today Café Dale is best known for its Gobbler sandwich challenge and Sullivan’s successful business makes her a happy camper. The Gobbler is a turkey , mayo, and cranberry sauce sandwich constr ucted on your choice of homemade bread. The challenge is to eat the entir e sandwich, including the chips on the side, in the fastest time. The p erson w ho c an b eat t he f astest Gobbler time on record gets their picture taken and hung on the wall of the café. At the moment, the record stands at just over two minutes to do consume the Poultney behemoth. As it turns out, the Gobbler is the most popular sandwich with Dale cooking
Dale Sullivan and the cook and wait staff of Café Dale in Poultney. After just having celebrated its second anniversary, the popular college eatery will close in December.
Robberies From page 1 amount of money and the suspect fled. Uniformed tr oopers arrived, along with detectives from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations. State police personnel canvassed the area and spoke to a local barber who advised that he observed a suspicious female park her car at the Stewarts Shop and head towar d the bank through a back alleyway. He then observed the same woman several minutes later r eturn to her car with a bag that was emanating purple smoke from an exploded “dye pack” the teller had included with the money. The female then drove away in a hurry. The barber was able to get the license plate and provided it to the troopers. The couple was arr ested shortly thereafter at 4:45 p.m. at a restaurant on Route 4A in Castleton after police located her black For d T aurus that was seen leaving the
Poultney bank after the robbery. Information and evidence was gathered during the investigation that linked the couple to two bank ro bberies in New York State and three in V ermont. The V ermont robberies occurr ed in Rutland T own, W est Rutland and, yesterday’s incident, in Poultney. In New York, the duo allegedly hit the same bank — TD Bank — twice in four days, r eportedly stealing a total of $4,600. Bank surveillance video shows each of the suspects entering and exiting the branch, police said. Both suspects were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday, Nov. 3, in Rutland District Court to answer to the charges of assault and thr ee counts robbery. They will then face charges in the Granville cases in W ashington County , NY, police said. Related item: See “Message from the Publisher” on page 4 this week.
pounds and pounds of fr esh turkey every week. She never uses pr e-bought deli meat. It is all as fr esh and homemade as she can make it. It also happens to be Dale Sullivan’s favorite sandwich. She has many different sandwich combos to choose fr om satisfying anyone’s appetite. She even offers delicious vegetarian, vegan fare. This time of year , Sullivan’s homemade soups are popular, too. Every part of the soup is made fr om scratch. She said she likes to take care of the community, especially the college students. She has become a surrogate mother, of sorts, to many in the college. When they ar e feeling sick they go to Café Dale wher e she feeds them warm soup in hopes that she can provide some comfort while they are under the weather . For Dale Sullivan, that is what running her business is all about. She likes that the college students can have a place to come and get taken care of. Whether it be fr om feeding a sick student some soup, or just giving them a place to be fed a good meal and relax, she loves to be able to pro vide them with some home comfort. After all, that’s what it’s all about— community. Sullivan is passionate about running a business in Poultney. She says that she works well with the other local
businesses. She pur chases the majority of her pr oduce right fr om the college. She has been mentored by the business next door to hers. She has become a staple in the community , and she will be missed. An o pportunity h as p resented i tself that can’t be turned down—so after being in business for just over two years, Café Dale will be closing the first of December. However, Dale Sullivan will be staying open thr ough the Thanksgiving holiday. In fact, she will be serving Thanksgiving dinner to anybody who doesn’t have a place to go for the holidays. The dinner will be served fr om noon until 3 p.m. She is asking that if you or anyone you know would like to attend, to call 802-287-1161. Sullivan said she is thankful for everyone in town who has helped with her success. She said it is “with a heavy heart” that she will be closing, and that she will miss her loyal customers. And judging by what I see each time I step into the café, Dale Sullivan will be missed as well. She started this business after some major life changes. She said it was always a dream of hers, and if this experience has taught her anything it’s that it is never too late to go after your dreams.

Arrest came as a shock to many
t is with a heavy heart that we have to report that one of our Green Mountain Outlook marketing consultants, Ms. Jill Ludwig, was arrested in Poultney last week. Jill and her boyfriend, John Maynard, were accused of several armed bank robberies in southern Vermont and New York. The pair reside in Castleton. According to the Vermont State Police, addictive drug habits were behind the alleged crimes. News about Jill’s arrest was a profound shock to the newspaper ’s employees. Jill’s behavior at work did not indicate a problem to any of us. In our nation, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. And in the coming weeks, our legal system will decide the final outcome of this tragic story. If the accusations prove to be correct, we can
only express our profound sadness. How did this happen? Regardless of the outcome, drug abuse has been at the heart of many violent and non-violent crimes in our nation since the 1960s. It is a deadly social scourge which seems to have no solution, no end in sight. Good people—many from middleand upper-income homes—get caught up in this dark world of despair and crime. Addiction affects not only the person abusing the drug, but everyone around them. We hope and pray for a speedy resolution to this case and for all the individuals, including Jill’s coworkers here at the newspaper, who are feeling both profoundly sad and numb, and are now a part of this unfolding story.

Halloween? Bah humbug
late Happy Halloween to you. I don’t care for Halloween much—never did. I like that other folks do care for it though. It’s a good thing, no? Halloween is big. You should see Stowe’s Maple Street during Trick or Treat time, from what, 4-9 p.m., or so—it’s packed. On Maple Street in Stowe they have cops watching over the flocks of costumed kids and their folks making sure the general vehicle traffic heeds them right of way. It’s a safe an orderly Halloween night in Stowe. As I drove by the festivities at around 8 p.m., I wondered, what the heck happened to Cabbage Night? It seems it’s been done away with. Really, you know what? In our effort to make everything safe and politically correct, we’re cutting out some fun things, things like fat, cussin’, and Cabbage Night. I bet some folks reading this don’t even know what Cabbage Night is; that’s sad to me. I never went out on Cabbage Night (Halloween Eve when a town’s youth might raise a little ruckus in the city proper) but I always wondered if I might; the possibly was there, at least, and just wondering alone was enough to make me feel like I was a bit of a rebel. There are no rebels anymore; they’ve been silenced by Ritalin. Oh, well, what boys and a few gals have lost in pegging a rural mailbox or two with eggs, the new Halloween has made up for with the penchant young mothers show for dressing up for the holiday—as, or close to as, prostitutes. Come on, don’t tell me you haven’t noticed? Cripes, I could hardly keep my eyes on the road the other night for watching the kid’s mommies following their youngins around dressed like $50 Canadian pole-grabbers (dancers). Workin’ out some deep-seated stuff, you moms out there? Go for it. Seems like the worst part about the moms wanting to gig it up all hotzie-totzie for Halloween is
that they then have to let their little daughters do the same, seems like. If Halloween is your favorite holiday, I’m sorry you chose to read this cause, like I said earlier, I’m not a fan, never have been and becoming more not a fan as the years go by. Why? Well, there’s the moms as Hos deal, then there’s— Guy in the gym, young father, telling me what fun time he had, his house full Halloween night, with kiddies all dressed up, having fun. “Couldn’t count how many there were if I tried,” he said, smiling at the thought of it all. He said each kid got one pass at the buffet table set overflowing with candy and treats. “I was busy all night calling back kids who’d sneak back up to grab more than their fair share, double dipping,” he said, still smiling, “double dipping.” “Future one percenters,” I quipped. He stalled, and then caught my reference. “Yeah, yeah, right,” he agreed still smiling, “future one percenters.” There will always be the one percenters, people wanting more, who aren’t satisfied with enough. It’s bred into, and almost taught to, us in so many ways not the least of which is through the celebration of Halloween; there are some other holidays you may be able to think of, too. “My kids have so much candy at home from Halloween,” said with prideful exasperation by a few parents I talked with today. “My trick or treat bad is bigger than yours,” said by the six-year-old kid dressed as a banker. It’s human nature to want more. We have to fight ourselves to realize we need very little. That’s what Halloween is all about, Charlie Brown.

Gift-of-Life Marathon sets goal: Top the U.S. in blood donations RUTLAND—Organizers of the Gift-of-Life Marathon in Rutland announced the goal for the 2011 even: to break the national record for a oneday community blood drive of 1,968 pints. “It will take a tremendous response from the people of Rutland County , but we ar e issuing the challenge: Let’s top the nation in blood donation,” said CVPS spokesman Steve Costello, one of the or ganizers. “The need is huge right now, but the spirit of our local communities has never shined brighter than in the wake of Hurricane Irene.” Added Terry Jaye from WJJR Radio, which cosponsors the marathon with CVPS: “People told us we could never br eak the New England record, but we’ve done it thr ee times. Now some say the greater Rutland County community can’t br eak the national r ecord. It will be hard, and we’ll need people fr om all walks of life to pull together as they did after the storm, but we’ll never know until we try. We think it is possible.” Organizers, working with the American Red
Cross, are making elaborate plans to give the er gion a shot at the r ecord, including expanding to four sites, including the Paramount Theatr e, the American Legion, the Elks Club and the College of St. Joseph’s gym. “These steps are designed to significantly increase the number of donors, while slashing backlogs and waiting times,” Costello said. “Through these actions, we think we can bring in a lot more people, maintain the unique ‘community block party’ feel of the event, and get people in and out in a reasonable time. The appointments, in particular, should provide a vast improvement.” First-time donors will be critical to meeting the goal. In past years, around 175 to 200 firsttime donors have turned out. Or ganizers ar e hoping for 300 to 400 first-time donors this year, and Vermont Electric Power company (VELCO) will provide a free DVD of “The Blood in This Town,” the GOLM-inspired documentary, to first-timers while supplies last. While supplies last, donors will also r eceive
gift bags stuf fed with items fr om dozens of local businesses and or ganizations, including: Downtown Rutland businesses, Ef ficiency Vermont, Green Mountain Rock Climbing, IBF Solutions, Long T rail Br ewing Company, Mountain Times, Mountain Top Inn and Resort, Omya, Paramount Theatr e, PEG-TV Rutland, Project Family – Department of Childr en and Families, Rutland Herald, Rutland Historical Society, Rutland Magazine, Rutland Recreation Department, Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce, Rutland Regional Medical Center , The Bus, Vermont Electric Power Company, Vermont Country Stor e, and W estminster Cracker Company.
